✨✧ DefunktDefunkt In America ... CD
Antilles, 1988. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Trombone-heavy funk from Joseph Bowie and Defunkt – a key crossover album in the late 80s, and one of the few mainstream funk efforts of its type! By this point, Defunkt have shaken off some of the rockier edges of earlier years, and are going for a more soul-based sound that's clearly ... read more CD

Hannibal/Ryko, 1980/1988. Used 2CDs ... $15.99
A key link between 70s funk and some of the avant jazz rock trends on the New York scene in the early 80s – a group who seem to draw inspiration both from the sound of larger funk groups like Brass Construction and BT Express, and from the artier styles of the Ze Records generation of the ... read more CD

Philly Groove/Real Gone, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
The genius of The Delfonics knows no bounds – and even though the trio rose to fame during the glory days of the harmony soul group, they still have a very special sound that really sets them apart from the pack!

Cadet/Caroline (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99

DellsNo Way Back ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $28.99
Fantastic work from The Dells – a group who never seemed to stop turning out greatness – even as they made a shift between different labels in the 70s! This set's got The Dells moving from Chess Records to Mercury – but there's still a strong indie vibe to the set – thanks ... read more CD

Lizzy Mercier DesclouxSuspense (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ze/Light In The Attic, 1988. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
The last lovely album in a wonderful run of records from Lizzy Mercer Descloux – one of the most unique talents to work on the Ze Records imprint in the 80s – and an artist who shared plenty of the genre-crossing, global-mixing elements of her contemporaries! The album's got a sound ... read more CD

Raul De SouzaDon't Ask My Neighbors ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99
A tremendous moment for trombonist Raul De Souza – working here in a style that's light years past his roots in bossa nova! The set's got a heavy California vibe – a late 70s blend of jazz and soul handled by producer George Duke, who also arranges many tracks on the record – but ... (Jazz, Soul) read more CD

Manu DibangoHome Made ... CD
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
A late 70s killer from Manu Dibango – recorded in Nigeria, and with a style that mixes his own sax-heavy funk with some of the leaner Lagos grooves of the time! The tracks are all nice and long – longer than most on any of Manu's other late 70s albums – and they stretch out in ... (Global Grooves, Soul) read more CD

Manu DibangoSun Explosion ... CD
Fiesta/Africa Seven (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $11.99
A record that really shows the continuing evolution of the sound of Manu Dibango – the artist's relentless drive to move forward and keep coming up with new ways to groove! The style here is quite different than the short, stark vibe of Manu's earlier work – as the tracks are all long, ... (Global Grooves, Soul) read more CD

DiplomatsGreatest Recordings ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Here's the reason why we love reissue CDs – because they offer an incredible look at groups that have nearly been forgotten in the pages of music history! The Diplomats were an east coast group who never cracked the top of the charts, but who made some excellent work during the 60s – a ... read more CD

DivineShoot Your Shot – The Divine Anthology ... CD
O Records/Hot Shot (UK), 1980s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
Divine may best be known for her stunning early performances in the films of John Waters – but the 80s also saw the actress emerging as a surprisingly big force in the clubs, too – coming on strong in a post-disco mode, and really helping keep a campy club spirit alive and well at the ... read more CD

Swamp Dogg (Jerry Williams)Little Jerry Williams Anthology ... CD
Essential, 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A great trip through the early years of Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams – a motherlode of early R&B and soul singles that show Williams as a really well-developed artist even before his 70s Swamp Dogg fame! The styles here are a bit more conventional than later years – less ... read more CD

Imperial/EMI, 1950s/Early 60s. Used 4 CDs ... $22.99
Way better than the usual box set of this vintage – given how much Fats Domino recorded for Imperial, the set's not an overview, but a near-complete set! Great book, too! CD
(Small cutout hole through case. )

Don DowningDoctor Boogie (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roadshow/Octave (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
A killer classic from grooveman Don Downing – the kind of indie disco record that really broke big in the 70s – but which hardly ever got the longer-term fame it deserved! The grooves here are straight and simple – the best early east coast club modes of the mid 70s – more ... read more CD

Will Downing sounds wonderful here on this late 80s set – standing out instantly from most of his contemporaries, with a deep-toned, classic vocal approach that's simply tremendous!

ABC/Righteous (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
One of Lamont Dozier's true 70s classics – an amazing album of baroque soul with an undeniable groove – kind of the best aspects of Detroit soul, wrapped up together! The arrangements here are fantastic – a mix of strings and soul that surpasses any of Lamont's previous albums, ... read more CD

✨✧ Lamont DozierWorking On You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet mellow groover from the mighty Lamont Dozier – a set that's not nearly as well known as his earlier work of the 70s, but one that has the Motown man still riding strong!
