Ben SidranFeel Your Groove ... LP
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A rare Capitol Records outing from Ben Sidran – and one of his best from the early years! The album's a quirky batch of tracks that also gets nice and funky at times – and some of the best cuts have a tightly snapping feel with plenty of breaks – so much so that the album's been ...

Labi SiffreFor The Children (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
A really wonderful album from singer/songwriter Labi Siffre – a set that has him exploring a few more righteous themes than before, but still mostly stepping along in that more compressed pop of his earliest albums! The tunes are catchy, compelling, and done in that great blend of acoustic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Labi SiffreSinger & The Song (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
An incredible record from Labi Siffre – spare, simple, and totally beautiful – in a space beyond category! The album is the sort that should have been a real standout in the 70s – early work by one of the freshest songwriters to hit the British scene, sung in a style that's a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John & Arthur SimmsJohn & Arthur Simms ... LP
Casablanca, 1980. Sealed ... $9.99
A nice later album by the pair who'd previously recorded as The Simms Twins – rougher in their earlier years, but here using some smooth modern soul arrangements by Greg Mathieson to hit a much more sophisticated sound. The record's pretty tight overall – with a few nonsense disco ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe SimonDrowning In the Sea Of Love ... LP
Spring, 1972. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A big one for Joe – and a marked shift after his southern soul recordings of earlier years. For this one, Joe got on the Philly train early, and hired Gamble & Huff to put the whole thing together with a tight smooth soul groove. The group's got greats like Norman Harris, Vince Montana, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe SimonPower Of Simon ... LP
Spring, 1973. Sealed ... $2.99
An album that combined tracks that Joe had cut as singles for the Spring label, mostly in the south, but a few on the east coast – with production either by Simon and John Richbourg, or by the Gamble/Huff team in Philly. Titles include "Step By Step", "Drowning In The Sea Of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe SimonSimon Pure Soul ... LP
Sound Stage 7, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $3.99
Excellent early work by Joe Simon – very much in the rootsy southern mode that graced his best early singles, and which seemed to disappear quickly as his fame rose in the 70s. Joe's voice is great – with touches of Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Brook Benton, and Ben E King, all wrapped up ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneBaltimore ... LP
CTI, 1978. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
A real standout 70s set from Nina Simone – a one-off date for CTI Records, done with a sound that's different than her earlier work for RCA, Philips, and Colpix! The groove here is often as soul-based as it is vocal jazz – thanks to arrangements from David Matthews, who brings a ... (Vocalists, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneHigh Priestess Of Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Verve, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Classic work from Nina Simone – and an album that definitely lives up to its title! Nina Simone certainly emerged as the high priestess of soul during her monumental stretch for Philips Records in the 60s – as she moved way past jazz, way past some of the folk she'd begun tapping into, ...

Nina SimoneNina Simone In Concert ... LP
Philips, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Classic Nina – recorded live on a variety of familiar numbers, but in that incredible mode that always transforms songs completely, lifting them from their roots and turning them into amazingly fierce proclamations of power and emotion! The tracks are longish, at a level that allows for a ... (Vocalists, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nina SimoneNina Sings Duke Ellington (white cover) ... LP
Colpix, 1962. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Nina sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an ...

Nina SimonePastel Blues ... LP
Philips, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Wonderful stuff from Nina Simone – working here still with one foot in the jazzier style of early days, but with haunting elements of the later progressive style to come! The "pastel" in the title shouldn't imply any sort of softness on Nina's part, because if anything, she's ... (Vocalists, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Skip & Ernest, Floyd Morris, Glenn Watts, & OthersHot 69 ... LP
Bunky, 1969. Very Good ... $49.99
One of the few albums we've ever seen on the mostly-singles Bunky Records label – best known for its production work by Chisoul giant Bill "Bunky" Sheppard! The set offers up some of the best soul work for the tiny label at the time – an assortment of tunes are are as rare in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SkyySkyyjammer ... LP
Salsoul, 1982. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Skyy are soaring high at this point – they've dropped the space suits, but still have the heavy bass, and all those cosmic production touches that put them at the forefront of the new sound of 80s funk. The album's prehaps not as strong as some of their others for Salsoul, but still keeps ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SlaveConcept ... LP
Cotillion, 1978. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
A key early classic from Slave – as the set features the group's first work with drummer Steve Arrington, who not only opened up their rhythmic concept, but also gave them a great new sound on lead vocals! Arrington's approach here is very much in the spirit of Slave's first 2 records – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

SlaveJust A Touch Of Love ... LP
Cotillion, 1979. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Tight bass-heavy funk from Slave – still working here in that excellent compressed style that was their unique contribution to soul music. There's probably a bit more of a vocal-heavy sound here than on other albums, but the groove's still strong, and is reaching a bit towards an 80s club ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sly & The Family StoneSmall Talk ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good ... $4.99
Sly's still doing pretty nice for himself in 1974 – with a sound that's perhaps a bit warmer than on the early records, but still nice and soulful – and peppered with a good dose of funk! The groove is really great on the set – bubbling with a more "deep down" feel than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sylvia SmithWoman Of The World ... LP
ABC, 1975. Very Good ... $8.99
Pretty nice 70's female soul stuff, recorded by a woman that we know nothing about, and with arrangements by Michael Omartian. The groove is very nice, in sort of a First Choice kind of way, and the tracks include "Superbad", "Don't Mistreat My Babies", "Did I Give Up Much ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
