RCA (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
They're not the same FCC that controls the airwaves in the US – but instead, the Funky Communications Committee – who work here with some great southern production from the team of Clayton Ivey and Terry Woodford! The record's got a glow that's kind of post-Muscle Shoals – maybe ... read more CD

Blackout, 2002. Used ... $16.99
The third album by Fertile Ground – an incredible leap from the previous two, and proof that the group is really going places!

A stone killer from the legendary 5 Royales – one of the greatest groups to ever record for King Records in the 50s, and a key force in helping move things forward from doo wop to soul!

Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1981. Used ... $6.99
A groovy little move for Five Special – a set that still has the best funkier touches of their previous album, but which also brings in some more electro elements as well! There's a wicked groove on the guitar here – at least on the more upbeat tracks – kind of a riffing edge ... read more CD

Epic/Cherry Pop (UK), 1990. New Copy 2CD ... $6.99 14.99
Bouncy, beat-heavy soul from Five Star – really stepping out strongly on this self-titled set! The music's nothing new, and very familiar to fans of mainstream soul at the time – but the group really serve things up with a stronger edge than on previous releases – handling much ... read more CD

FlyersYou're My Lady ... CD
Sustain, 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A Berlin disco group from the late 70s, but one who are maybe a bit more organic than some of their contemporaries – as their approach here feels more like that of a cohesive band, and maybe a bit less like some of the larger studio projects of the German disco years! The tunes feature both ... read more CD

An overlooked set from the Gary scene – one of a handful of albums by pianist Billy Foster – a musician, radio host, and educator – with a legacy that almost makes him the Ramsey Lewis of his hometown!

One of the more unusual albums to come from Philly International in the 70s – a set of Euro disco tracks by a French group, and not the usual homegrown talent who usually recorded for the label!

One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group!
