TeenagersTeenagers Featuring Frankie Lymon ... LP
Gee, 1956. Near Mint- ... $9.99
They may be Teenagers, but this is hardly teen pop – as the album's a key step in the direction towards soul music for the 60s – thanks to the mighty power of the tragic Frankie Lymon! There's a sense of darkness to the album right from the start – even in the hit that kicks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TemptationsCloud Nine ... LP
Gordy, 1969. Very Good ... $8.99
A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations – perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield! The set's awash in that bottom-heavy, rumbling funk mode that Whitfield brought to the group at the end of the 60s – served up in bold ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TemptationsMasterpiece ... LP
Gordy, 1973. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the later Norman Whitfield efforts for The Temptations – a masterpiece of baroque harmony soul, touched with bits of the righteous sound that Whitfield brought to the group a few years before. The album's very coherent, with some wonderful tracks that really build the groove nicely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TemptationsMeet The Temptations ... LP
Gordy, 1964. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Meet The Temptations – a group who already sound great at this early point in their career! There's a nicely dark edge to most numbers here – a sound that's more early 60s than you might guess from The Temps' 60s reputation – almost a transitional Motown mode that has equal parts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Reissue pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
TemptationsPsychedelic Shack ... LP
Gordy, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A late 60s Motown classic – with a deep heavy soul sound that mixed psychedelic elements into a rolling righteous groove – with a style that was perfect for the political tenor of the times! The formula worked extremely well for The Temps, and shifted them from being just a regular ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TemptationsSurface Thrills ... LP
Gordy, 1983. Near Mint- ... $1.99
An unusual set of 80s grooves from The Temptations – a record that still has the group at the top of their vocal powers, but which also changes up the sound of the rhythms a bit! There's more beats and keyboard lines than before – production that definitely shows the date of the record ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TemptationsTemptations Live At The Copa ... LP
Gordy, 1968. Very Good- ... $2.99
Berry Gordy was always trying to give his soul acts a bit of "class" – sending them to London or Paris, or having them play at sophisticated nite spots like The Copacabana, a far cry from the "Chittlin Circuit venues that most of America's soul acts were stuck in. However, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TemptationsTruly For You ... LP
Gordy, 1984. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A great 80s set from The Temptations – one of the few Motown acts who managed to deliver great work again and again over the years! The production has some 80s traces that are slightly dated, but the vocals are still top-shelf all the way – strongly moved much more into a mellow and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Llans Thelwell & The CelestialsLlans Plays It All ... LP
SOUL/Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 26.99
An excellent combo from 60s Jamaica – a group who are equally well skilled at soul, jazz, and a number of other styles too! The groove is less rocksteady than you might expect – although there's plenty of that in the rhythms – and at some level, these guys feel more like some ...

✨✧ Mike Theodore OrchestraCosmic Wind ... LP
Westbound/Warner, 1977. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Mike's come a long way from his early soul days with Dennis Coffey – working here to lay down a set of spacious disco tunes with a dreamy finish – really stretching out with the same sort of glide you'd find in the best Philly club at the time! The record's actually quite strong on the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ThesdaSpaced Out ... LP
Left Ear (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
A record that's hardly spaced out at all – and which instead is a really righteous blend of funk, jazz, and a bit of soul – all served up here by an obscure Maryland band at the end of the 70s! There's a wonderful confluence of energy going on here – some spiritual jazz in the ... (Jazz, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus ThomasFunkiest Man – The Stax Funk Sessions 1967 to 1975 ... LP
Stax/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $16.99 22.99
The funkiest man? Could well be – and this set will more than support that case! By the time of these recordings, Rufus Thomas was already a legendary figure in the Memphis scene – an aging R&B star that also worked on radio and did a fair bit of promotion for other artists, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Three DegreesNew Dimensions ... LP
Ariola, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
The girls definitely have a "new dimension" here – working with Giorgio Moroder on a set of tracks that trade their previous Philly groove for more of a pulsating, dark electro-disco sound – a German-styled groove that works surprisingly well for the girls! Given that so much ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Three DegreesThree D ... LP
Ariola, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Three Degrees continue their work with Giorgio Moroder here, and also get a bit of help from Harold Faltermeyer – electrifying their sound a lot more than in the Philly years, but still keeping things pretty soulful overall! The music's still disco, but with a heavier groove overall – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TimeIce Cream Castle ... LP
Warner, 1984. Very Good ... $6.99
Classic! The third LP from the Time, and last before Morris Day went off and started his solo career – though by this point Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis had departed the group. Nonetheless, the sound is still tight modern funk, with Jesse Johnson and crew keeping things in the great post-Prince ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TrammpsDisco Inferno ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A landmark album from The Trammps – and a record that broke the group firmly out of the Philly ghetto, yet still carried all the best touches of the Sigma scene! Sure, the title track was a super-huge hit – thanks to a plug in Saturday Night Fever – but the record itself is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
