PoppiesLullaby Of Love ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $43.99
The only full album ever cut by The Poppies – a sweetly voiced soul trio who hailed from Jackson, but had a sound that was much more in keeping with the uptown groove of New York! The approach here is somewhere between girl group pop and harder edged soul – with a Northern undercurrent ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Billy PrestonBilly Preston ... LP
A&M, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Billy Preston looks like some sort of hokey ringmaster on the cover of this one, but he sounds much hipper than you might guess from that image – moving away from his standard hit mode of the early 70s, and working through a range of more subtle and soulful modes! A bit part of the album's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A&M, 1974. Very Good ... $6.99
Billy Preston right in the middle of a classic 70s run – hitting a trademark blend of soul, jazz, and other groovy influences – all with a sound that's very much his own, and which puts him in the same company as Sly Stone or Stevie Wonder!

Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
Well, we don't think we'd call this the most exciting organ ever – but the record is one of Billy's best, and it's got a hard wailing raw groove that's missing from a lot of his later work!

Lloyd PriceMr Personality Sings The Blues ... LP
ABC, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $0.99
Lloyd sings a nice little batch of blues tunes – a bit more uptown than some of his earlier R&B work, thanks to arrangements by Sid Feller that bring out the classier side of Lloyd voice.

Classic Prince – an album that signaled an end to the first part of Prince's storied career, leaning heavily on his fascination with new wave, mixed with the r&b grooves and 70s funk of his earliest LPs.

Marlin, 1976. Very Good ... $0.99
The Ritchie Family continue the exotic themes of their disco work started on the Brazil album – working here with Jacques Morali and Ritchie Rome on a set of tunes that have a nice pop sort of undercurrent and a playful groove that's not afraid to be a bit silly when it wants to!

Lee RitenourCaptain Fingers ... LP
Epic, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
Smooth and funky fusion from Lee Ritenour – top-shelf all the way, and handled with a really soulful groove, thanks to production from the legendary Skip Drinkwater!

Lee RitenourRit ... LP
Elektra, Very Good+ ... $2.99
Few people did soulful fusion better than Lee Ritenour back in the early 80s – and the guitarist always seemed to find a way to really link together all the different sounds of the electric genre – from heavy jamming to soulful grooving to a rock-like appreciation for a good hook! ...

Chollo Rivera & The Latin Soul DrivesBy Chollo ... LP
Cotique, 1969. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An obscure classic from the Latin Soul generation – the standout set recorded by the young Chollo Rivera and his strangely-named group The Latin Drives! The set's got equal parts soul and equal parts Latin – in a way that's similar to some of Joe Bataan's albums for Fania from the same ... (Latin, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Howard Roberts ChoraleLet My People Go – Black Spirituals African Drums ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Although vocal arranger Howard Roberts (not the guitarist) made some nice funky records in his time, this is a fairly traditional batch of spirituals, augmented by African production, and packaged in a style that's designed to appeal to the white liberal – even though the conception of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
A long-overdue full length set of work from Roy Roberts – a musician who's maybe best known for his more recent blues material on the Virginia scene, but who's presented here in a hip array of early funk and soul singles!

Freddy RobinsonAt The Drive-In ... LP
Enterprise, 1972. Very Good ... $9.99
An excellent album of super-dope guitar riffing – laid down over funky arrangements by Monk Higgins, in kind of a slick LA early 70s style. The group features work by Paul Humphrey, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder – but the real star is Freddy, whose complicated lines on the guitar stand ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A sweet album of funky guitar tracks, with Freddy Robinson out front over a bunch of tight LA Monk Higgins arrangements.

Tamla, 1981. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A great vehicle for the Smokey Robinson sound in the 80s – and a record that helped Smokey kick off the decade with a really massive hit!

Motown, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Smooth Smokey at the end of the 70s – an album that has him moving from the Quiet Storm sound into the more hook-based style that would earn him a fair bit of hits in the 80s!

A great one by The Miracles! Smokey and the group are clearly pushing the envelope here – stretching out for a deeper harmony sound, moving towards some of the smoother styles they'd use a bit more in the 70s.

Strange little 4 track release in which Sire records was trying to break a lot of the early 80s electro disco groups from Italy into the US market. The album's notable, though, for it's inclusion of the great "Problems D'Amour" by Alexander Robotnick, a nice groover that has some strong ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1981. Very Good ... $5.99
There's many facets of Roger – and they're all pretty darn funky!

A later effort from DJ Rogers, with his rich voice still sounding great.

A bit of an odd album, but one that showed the Stones were alive and kicking in the 80s.

A big one for Norman Whitfield – who found in Rose Royce what he'd been lacking for years – a hit group ready to handle a number of styles, all well, and all with an adventurous style that would break them past the legions of lackluster funky soul groups of the late 70s.
