One of the earliest albums of 60s girl group soul by the lovely Shirelles!

SpinnersYesterday Today & Tomorrow ... LP
Atlantic, 1977. Sealed ... $4.99
A sweet sweet set from The Spinners – and a record that's more "today" than "yesterday", given the tight 70s arrangements from Thom Bell! Bell's Philly approach is still perfect for the group – unlocking their harmonies in very different ways than back in their ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rod St. JamesHas Anybody Seen The Superstar ... LP
Paula, Early 70s. Very Good ... $14.99
A beautiful album of free soul tracks – with a mixture of sweet 70s soul and slightly folksy rock, in a blend that's hard to describe, but really wonderful! We'd shelve this one next to Alzo & Udine, Ellen McIlwaine, Batteaux, and other obscure early 70s crossover artists who never made ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

St Louis JimmyGoin Down Slow ... LP
Prestige/Bluesville, Early 60s. Very Good ... $64.99
One of the most obscure blues sessions ever recorded by Prestige – a rootsy date that features the vocals of James "St Louis Jimmy" Oden – plus backing on guitar, piano, bass, and drums! Like most Bluesville dates, this one's going for a very vintage sound – one that ... (Blues, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original deep groove pressing! Vinyl has some oxidation on side two, which causes some light surface noise – but other than that, the record's in beautiful shape! Cover has just a bit of light wear, and a small bit of tape in one corner.)

Staple SingersBealtitude – Respect Yourself ... LP
Stax, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
About as classic as you can get with the Staple Singers!

Portrait, 1984. Very Good ... $2.99
A great revival of sorts for The Staple Singers – and a record that has them hitting a whole new groove to really open up their sound!

Staple Singers/Curtis MayfieldLet's Do It Again ... LP
Curtom, 1975. Very Good- ... $9.99
Probably the best record the Staple Singers ever cut during the 70s – as it makes a genius move by taking their rich vocal style and laying it over some excellent tracks written by Curtis Mayfield!

Mavis StaplesOh What A Feeling ... LP
Warner, 1979. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Overlooked solo work from Mavis Staples – a set recorded around the time the Staple Singers were making their move into more clubby and modern soul modes – both of which Mavis handles here!

Mavis StaplesOnly For The Lonely ... LP
Volt, 1969. Very Good- ... $19.99
Nothing lonely here – as Mavis Staples hits a newly sophisticated groove that's set up in full arrangements from the great Horace Ott, and produced with a nicely sweet touch from Don Davis!

Mavis StaplesYou Are Not Alone ... LP
Anti, 2010. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
A rawly beautiful set from Mavis Staples – produced by Jeff Tweedy, and we think it's her best of the past decade!

Warner, 1976. Very Good- ... $0.99
The Staples and Curtis Mayfield – working together here in a very Curtom groove!

Edwin StarrClean ... LP
20th Century, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A solid entry from Edwin Starr's late 70s comeback into the clubs – a set that's miles from his harder soul for Motown, but which still has some pretty great vocals overall! Edwin's working here with Lamont Dozier, who helps bring his Detroit groove into smoother California territory – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Edwin StarrInvolved ... LP
Gordy, 1971. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the most righteous albums ever from Edwin Starr – as if you couldn't guess from the title and cover!

Gordy, 1968. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A mod soul classic from the great Edwin Starr – a set that bridges his years in the Detroit underground and his sudden rise to fame at Motown!

Maurice StarrSpacey Lady ... LP
Arista, 1983. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A key bridge in soul scenes of the 80s – the second album from Maurice Starr, and a set that definitely points the way towards some of the sounds he'd influence later in the decade! There's still plenty of street electro in the mix – the sorts of grooves that Starr was forging as part ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dakota StatonLate Late Show ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A Capitol classic from Dakota Staton – and the record that made her a real leading lady at the label in the years before Nancy Wilson's rise! The set's got a wonderfully laidback feel that's in keeping with the title, yet it also swings nicely too – kind of a new level of soul in jazz ... (Vocalists, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dakota StatonMadame Foo Foo ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Rougher and rawer than we're used to hearing Dakota Staton – and a tasty little session done with Groove Holmes on organ! The tunes are mostly standards, taken at a slower bluesier pace than on some of Dakota's earlier sides – and Groove gets in plenty of licks on Hammond, sneaking ...

Groove Merchant, 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Very hip work from Dakota Staton – one of her great early 70s albums for the Groove Merchant label!

Dianne SteinbergUniversal Child ... LP
Atlantic, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
A later follow-up to Dianne Steinberg's first album on Atlantic, but one that moves things in a decidedly different direction!

Rustic, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Obscure material by Bobby Stevens & The Checkmates – recorded after their baroque soul album for A&M, with arrangements by Bobby and the band.

Billy StewartBilly Stewart Teaches Old Standards New Tricks ... LP
Chess, 1966. Very Good+ ... $4.99
This was the follow-up LP to Billy Stewart's huge single of Gershwin's "Summertime", and it's got a similar approach of "funky soul takes on American pop music standards".

Epic, 1975. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A nice little mid 70s set from Sly – one recorded without the Family Stone, but still grooving wonderfully with lots of funky edges!

StylisticsFabulous ... LP
H&L, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Seems like The Stylistics were recording a new album every few months at this point – and thankfully, through all that work they still managed to come up with a few great numbers now and then!

StylisticsHurry Up This Way Again ... LP
TSOP, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
A huge change from the early sound of The Stylistics – as the group have moved to Philly International, and are really shining in the light of the Gamble & Huff galaxy!

Avco, 1974. Very Good ... $6.99
Mid-period Stylistics, recorded after their association with Thom Bell and Linda Creed, and during the time that the group was handled by Hugo & Luigi.

StylisticsRockin' Roll Baby ... LP
Avco, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The third album by The Stylistics – and a set that's still very much in the high-harmony territory of their first two classics!

StylisticsSpecial Style ... LP
Streetwise, 1985. Very Good ... $6.99
A whole new sound for The Stylistics – one that has the group working here with Maurice Starr in a sweet 80s street soul style!

Geffen, 1980. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Donna Summer steps strongly into the 80s with a whole new groove – still working here with producer Giorgio Moroder, but in a way that's quite different than the electro disco the pair created in the 70s!

Bill SummersStraight To The Bank ... LP
Prestige, 1978. Sealed ... $4.99
Probably Bill Summers' best LP for Prestige, and certainly the one in which he got his groove straightened out, and more in the pocket than on some of his other ones. The title cut's a massive groover, and the LP version ends in a cool acappella sweep on the chorus that sounds (in our opinion) ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
