Chuck Brown & The Soul SearchersFunk Express ... LP
Source, 1980. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Post-We The People, post-"Ashley's Roachclip", but pre-Go Go, very much in the vein of the great Bustin' Loose album. This LP has Chuck and the Soul Searchers produced by Wayne Henderson, with the same sort of jazzy funk style that he was doing with a lot of mid 70s bands at Fantasy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1970. Very Good- ... $19.99
A killer from James Brown – and one of his best instrumental albums of the King years! The record has James working with the pre-JBs James Brown Band – a tight assemblage of players who really know how to craft an off-kilter groove. The guitar's popping on the beat here as much as the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownBlack Caesar ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownCold Sweat ... LP
King, 1967. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A stone classic from Brother James – a wonderful 60s album that not only includes the incredible title track – one of James' best groovers from the time – but a set that also showcases his talents in so many other styles too!

James BrownGettin' Down To It ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
A great little album by James Brown – and very different than his other work! He cut this one with the groovy Dee Felice Trio – a jazz-based combo that he recorded on their own for King, on another very rare, very excellent record. The band's in similar form here, although not ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownHell ... LP
Polydor, 1974. Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
JB's wildest album, with a crazy cover that shows him running away from the devil, and great gatefold inner photo with him standing amidst a bunch of declarations of "Hell". The record is a double album filled with lots of different styles from James' funky bag. Nicer bits include " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownHot Pants ... LP
Polydor, 1971. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
James Brown really opens up on this early 70s classic – really showing the world the amazing groove he was crafting with his band – who were let loose to jam in the studio, spinning out some really long grooves – which were then cut down to make this sweet little record! The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownJames Brown Plays Nothing But Soul ... LP
King, 1968. Very Good ... $29.99
One of our favorite JB records, this one features The Godfather playing keyboards (mostly supplied by Vox), on six extended instrumental tracks. The groove is actually jazzy, but really swings with a club sound that's totally groovy. James checks in with some monster organ solos that will have ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1969. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A tremendous turning point in the career of James Brown – and an album that points the way strongly to the even deeper funk of the 70s!

James BrownSay It Loud – I'm Black & I'm Proud ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
A bomb! The title of this one says it all – a burning anthem of pride and power, issued in 1969, at the end of one of the most troubling decades in America. James answers all the Uncle Tom cries from his critics – and comes up with "Say It Loud", an instant chant that was ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s! James really outdid himself for this one – working at a hard burning pace that had the JBs cooking up some killer funk for just about every number ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSoul On Top ... LP
King, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
A different James Brown album – but a nice one! James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSuper Bad ... LP
King, 1971. Very Good ... $18.99
Super Bad is right! This is hard-hitting funky James – from the badass cover right down to the extended tracks on the record, which point the way towards the hard live jamming of the classic Payback years!

James BrownThink (photo montage cover) ... LP
King, 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
One of James Brown's earliest full albums for King Records – and a set that kicks off with his monstrous reworkin of the tune "Think" – originally recorded by the Five Royales, but recast here by James as the blueprint for all the funky goodness in years to come!

James' moving tribute to the late Little Willie John – a big influence, and a fellow label mate at King. There are some great deep soul tracks on here, and lots of groovy instrumentals.

Randy BrownMidnight Desire ... LP
Chocolate City, 1980. Very Good ... $3.99
A sweet, smooth stepper from the great Randy Brown – and a record that's got the same sublime mix of mellow grooves and earthy vocals that you might find on some of Tyrone Davis' best late 70s work for Columbia! Tunes are all plenty darn fresh – written by the team of Homer Banks and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1959. Very Good ... $33.99
A Late Date from Ruth Brown – both in her 50s R&B years, and in the style of the work!
