JBsBreakin' Bread ... CD
Polydor/Elemental (France), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others! The band is still in fine fine form – with none of the fast-funk or proto-disco of some later recordings – and they're working here in ... read more CD

JBsGroove Machine ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $23.99
A rock-solid groove machine from The JBs – an album that's a bit different than their earlier sides for People Records, yet still pretty wonderful overall! The approach is more club than funk – yet the grooves are still mostly live ensemble playing – kind of a ratcheted-up ... read more CD

Desert Moon/Essential, 1976. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The only album ever cut by Norma Jenkins – a New Jersey singer with a surprisingly great ear for a deep soul groove!

Amazing under-discovered soul – a huge collection of late 60s recordings by Mable John – probably best known for her work with the Raelettes, or her earlier sides at Motown – but heard here in a pivotal time between those two chapters in her career! A few of the tracks on the set ... read more CD

Pre-soul duets from the team of Johnnie & Joe – a male/female duo who worked in this format years before more famous teams of the 60s! The style here is a bit R&B, but also a bit of early soul – often sung in a personal style that has Johnnie's female vocals falling right on ... read more CD

General JohnsonGenerally Speaking (Japanese pressing with bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A great solo album by this member of Chairmen of the Board – done with some wicked Holland Dozier Holland production, at a level that almost makes Johnson sound heavier here than in his work with his more famous group! The vocals have that same sort of crazy pinched sound that he had with ... read more CD

Herb JohnsonRemember Me ... CD
Philly Archives, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $6.99
A long-overdue set of work by Herb Johnson – best known for his rare funk single, but at heart a sweet soul singer who was part of the Philly scene of the 60s!

Lorraine JohnsonLearning To Dance All Over Again ... CD
Prelude/Unidisc (Canada), 1978. Used ... $6.99
A great bit of Prelude disco from Lorraine Johnson – a pretty soulful singer, but offered here with an unfortunate cover that has a silly looking white woman "learning to dance all over again" on the cover. (And in fact, it took us so long to get over that cover, that for years, we ... read more CD

Clintone/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
