James BrownBlack Caesar ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
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
(Gatefold is intact but has some creasing.)

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! There's a few wonderful ballads – but completely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownGettin' Down To It ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
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
(Blue label pressing. Cover has unglued seams.)

✨✧ James BrownI Got You (I Feel Good) ... LP
King, 1966. Very Good- ... $13.99
Quite possibly THE James Brown album of the mid 60s – a solid set of hard-grooving tracks, based around the monster title hit "I Got You (I Feel Good)"! The tune's one of those numbers that has been used a gajillion times over the years in commercials and promos – but which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label King pressing. Cover has a small stain on one corner and some splitting on the bottom seam.)
Also available I Got You (I Feel Good) ... LP 11.99

James BrownIt's A Mother ... LP
King, 1969. Very Good- ... $14.99
A definite mother from James Brown – the kind of all-funky album that few of his contemporaries could ever hope to match! If you've ever doubted the sheer raw power of James at the end of the 60s, the first few notes of this one will definitely make you a convert – and the stretched-out ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownJames Brown Sings Raw Soul ... LP
King, 1967. Very Good- ... $16.99
Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a small split on the top seam and light wear on the bottom, otherwise looks great!)

The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy red label pressing. Cover has light aging, a touch of marker & a split top seam. NOTE: VINYL IS CLEAN, BUT HAS A HEATED SPOT & A CRACK WHICH CAUSES A CLICK IN THE FIRST TRACK OF EACH SIDE.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
James BrownPlays New Breed (The Boo-Ga-Loo) ... LP
Smash, 1966. Very Good ... $14.99
Possibly the best instrumental album that James Brown cut for Smash! Unlike some of the other albums, this one features a set list that's mostly originals – and a number of tracks have a longer groove than usual, which lets James and the band stretch out instrumentally. Titles include " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Missing the portrait. Cover has a partially split top seam.)

✨✧ James BrownPlease Please Please ... LP
King, 1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible early album from James Brown – featuring 16 raw R&B tracks culled from his early years at King – and virtually the blueprint for so many other great things to follow! "Please Please Please" was James' first big hit – and as you probably already know, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(80s French pressing. Cover has a light stain along the opening.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
James BrownPure Dynamite! ... LP
King, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... $19.99
Raw live energy from the great James Brown – and a record that comes hot on the heels of Live At The Apollo! Like that one, this set was supposedly "recorded on the spot" – and it's even harder, faster, and noisier than that classic – with a loud-bursting sound that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has some wear and a mostly split bottom seam.)
Also available Pure Dynamite! (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD 26.99

James BrownRevolution Of The Mind ... LP
Polydor, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
An amazing double-live album that's to concert records what James Brown's Payback was to the sound of studio funk! Like that classic, this is a double-length 2LP set that really has James and the JBs stretching out and doing their thing – working here in a setting that's supposed to be the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSex Machine Today ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
A great little album by The Godfather – one that takes the core James Brown sound of the "Sex Machine" generation, and serves it up with a tighter mid 70s twist! Fred Wesley is still very firmly at the helm of the band – and there's a power here that's equal to the later JBs ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
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 BrownSuper Bad ... LP
King, 1971. Good+ ... $14.99
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! Everything wonderful is in place on the set – from the band's grooves at the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownThinking About Little Willie John & A Few Nice Things ... LP
King, 1968. Very Good ... $26.99
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. Plus, the cover's got a picture of James holding a Little Willie John album, and looking very touched. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice clean original pressing – and cover is great!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mel BrownActor Of Music ... LP
ABC, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Mel's a long way here from the dirty funk of earlier years – in a richly-arranged style that has some of the touches of the disco years, but which also nicely sets up Brown's vocals in a few gentler ballads that are the real winners of the set. These numbers have a honest, almost earthy feel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a promo stamp.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Randy BrownWelcome To My Room ... LP
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good ... $3.99
A mellow soul masterpiece from Randy Brown – a crucially-overlooked talent from the late 70s, working here with a totally put-together vibe! The album's got the mature, mellow feel of some of the best work by better-known 70s contemporaries – like Leroy Hutson or Lamont Dozier – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ruth BrownBlack Is Brown & Brown Is Beautiful ... LP
Skye, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A hip little set from Ruth Brown – miles away from her earlier R&B for Atlantic, and much more in the adult, righteous, and contemporary mode you'd expect from the title! The session's one of the key sides from the late 60s Skye Records catalog – and like others on the label, it ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Peabo BrysonI Am Love ... LP
Capitol, 1981. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A sweet solo set from Peabo Bryson – part of his excellent run of records for Capitol, and an album that features great production from the legendary Johnny Pate! Peabo's got this great way of being mellow and masculine, but without ever sounding too cliched – at a level that makes a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
