✨✧ Electric Crazy PeopleHerb Kent Presents The Electric Crazy People – Rudolph & Orlando ... LP
Shock, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wild bit of insanity from Chicago! DJ Herb Kent was one of the biggest jocks on the city's classic WVON radio station, and the Electric Crazy People were a set of little skits that Herb did with comedian Rudolph Browner which were played in between songs on the station's airwaves. The material is very goofy, very trippy, and very very blunted (in fact, it's hard to believe that Herb and Rudy weren't goofed up when they made this stuff!) There's a lot of nice short bits, like "Ralph the Drunk", "Orlando's Hideaway", and "Downtown Building Owning Man", plus two longer tracks – "Questions & Answers" and "Hi Fi White At BB Elementary". Not really a soul record, but an essential part of soul music memories here in Chicago, and a wild document of some radio nuttiness. (Comedy/Spoken, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

Kent, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A nice little live set from BB – rawer than some of his studio work at the time, and with a bit freer playing. Titles include "Please Love Me", "Sweet Little Angel", "Let Me Love You", "Rock Me Baby", "3 O'Clock Blues", and "Woke Up This Morning". (Blues, Soul) LP, Vinyl record album

Roy MiltonGreat Roy Milton – Roots Of Rock ... LP
Kent, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An obscure late 60s session that has R&B genius Roy Milton fronting a small group led by Johnny Otis, and featuring a young Shuggie Otis on guitar! The set's packaged in a "roots of rock" sleeve to cash in on the kids, but it's a pretty nice little set with a stoner R&B sound. Johnny wrote a number of tracks – like "Hush", "Whiskey Drinkin Woman", and "Charleston Boogie" – and the group reprises some of Roy's standards like "So Tired", "Early In The Morning", and "RM Blues".

Rudy Ray MooreCockpit – The Third Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Rudy Ray Moore flies the friendly skies – and turns out one of his best records of the 70s! The set is easily one of the tightest albums from Rudy's classic years – and uses a fair bit of musical backings beneath his very raunchy comedy – in ways that are sometimes funky, but also have jazzier or more soulful moments – with the kind of vibe that was common for performers like Moore in a club – as they'd usually have a small combo grooving along with their jokes. Rudy's classic "Petey Wheatstraw – The Devil's Son-In-Law" is done here in a nice extended version – and other tracks include "Have You Seen My Mule", "Like A Brother", "The Big Shipwreck", "Mop Bucket", and "Pool Shooting Monkey". And yes, the title is something of a dirty joke – but isn't that what you buy Rudy Ray Moore albums for in the first place! LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray MooreRudy Ray Moore Party Album – The Player, The Hustler ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Rudy's always been a player – and you'll hear plenty of proof on the raunchy comedy bits on this album! The set's one of Rudy's best from the early years – recorded live before an audience who's clearly very juiced up – and set to occasional music backing, which really helps add to the Superfly feel of the album! As usual, Moore takes on plenty of topics below the belt – and most of the comedy here is quite X-Rated – classic party-style riffs on getting down and getting it on! The record's not for feint of heart – or for minors, either – and Lady Reed also makes a guest appearance on the set as well. Titles include "Right Mind Now", "Them Flies Man", "Thanks For Good P***y", "He's Using My Hand", "Back Up & Get This Load", "Farting Post", and "Pistol Packing Pete". LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray MooreThis P*ssy Belongs To Me – The Second Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good ... $5.99
Rudy Ray Moore's second album, and almost hipper than the first – thanks to some key musical backings from The Fillmore St Soul Rebellion! The vibe here is as rough and raw as you'd expect – a no-holds-barred version of party records, with Rudy using plenty of language hardly heard this strongly on record again until the hip hop generation. The music's often mixed a bit lower than the vocals, but is still present enough to make things sound funky – and titles include the classic "Mr Big Dick", plus "The Gorillas Are Coming", "California Poetry", "Hurricane Anne Meets Dolemite", and "40 Pounds of Chitlings". Language is raw – so be warned! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDore Northern Soul – LA Black Music Magic ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A treasure trove of soul from the legendary LA indie label Dore Records – home to some of the finest 60s sides on the west coast – a top-shelf lineup that's never been represented this well! Dore had a few key groups at the time – a young Whispers, and the excellent Superbs – but also cut work by some other great artists too – all with a level of care and class to match the best soul sides coming from New York or Detroit at the time! The Dore approach manages to have a sparkle without losing any sort of edge – careful production and instrumentation, but a real respect for the voices in the lead, too. This means that the label can come up with an upbeat groove that rivals the Detroit sound on the dancefloor – yet also really let the singers and groups do their thing, too. LP-only collection features 14 tracks in all – most rare singles from the label – and titles include "Gone With The Wind" by Rita & The Tiaras, "I'm Givin You Notice Baby" by The Fidels, "What Did You Gain By That" by Kenard, "Your Ship Of Fools" by Ray Marchand, "My Lonely Feeling" by Milton James, "I Only Cry Once A Day Now" by The Puffs, "Nitty Gritty City" by The Swans, "Why Does It Feel So Right" by Shades Of Jade, "Keep On Movin" by Little Johnny Hamilton, "Gettin Back Into Circulation" by The Entertainers IV, and "I Wanna Do It With You Baby" by The Superbs.

VariousMasterpieces Of Modern Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
Ultra-hip soul from the 70s – a brilliant collection of underground tunes that represents some of the best of the decade's indie scene! The title says "modern", but the groove here is also pretty darn deep – as many of the tracks on the set have nice touches of southern soul, despite the smoother 70s production overall. Vocals are extremely heartfelt, and most tracks are in a mellow or midtempo pace – making for a really wonderful batch of tunes that moves away from the more uptempo and clubby sounds you might hear on other modern soul compilations. This special LP pressing brings together tracks from the CD series – a number of which were never issued on vinyl, even back in the day – and two unreleased tracks appear here for the first time ever! Titles include "Gotta Be Loved (part 2)" by Herman Davis, "Never Felt This Way Before" by The New Experience, "Go Away" by The Hestitations, "Momma Had A Baby" by Street People, "Do You Really Love Me" by Darondo, "I Don't Play Games" by Nightchill, "Just A Little Ugly" by Gail Anderson, "It's The Same Old Story" by Act 1, "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right" by The Mayberry Movement, "Shake Off That Dream" by Eddie Billups & The CCCs, and "If There Were No You" by The Natural Resources.

VariousModernists – Modernism's Sharpest Cuts ... LP
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99
Not "modernists" as in the kind you'd find in the art world – but instead "mods", of the sort that were the biggest proponents of soul music in mid 60s London! The package is a stellar array of rare soul tracks that all fit right in the best mod vibe that bubbled big for a few key years in the UK – a blend of romping soul, heavy R&B, and groovy jazz numbers that flow together with nonstop energy and a righteous sort of power that was extremely liberating at the time – and which still stuns us all these many years later! And unlike a lot of mod soul sets, this one isn't filled with overdone hits, and instead tries to find more obscure cuts that really fit the mod spirit of the glory days – all rare 60s numbers, but some of which never even circulated much back in the day. Wonderful stuff throughout – a great soul music counterpart to the Mod Jazz series on Kent – with titles that include "Sundown" by The Merced Blue Notes, "Dancing Everywhere" by Bob & Earl, "Soul Is My Game" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "East Side" by Hank Jacobs, "Jet Set" by Mel Williams, "Ain't That Soul" by Teddy Reynolds, "Go" by Little Johnny Hamilton & The Creators, "Hard Working Girl" by Clarence Daniels & Obie Jessie, "Another Child Lost" by Floyd White, "A Feeling Deep Inside" by The Corvairs, "The Real Thing" by Troy Dodds, "You Should Have Been A Doctor" by Bessie Banks, "I'm Gonna Get You" by Leroy Harris, and "All Around The World" by Chuck Higgins.

✨✧ Jeanette JonesDreams All Come True (180 gram white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever full length collection of work from Jeanette Jones – a San Francisco singer who's only been slowly discovered over the years, thanks to the efforts of the folks at Kent Records! Back in the day, Jones got one single on the market – the excellent "Darling I'm Standing By You/The Thought Of You" – but during the same stretch, she recorded some amazing work that never saw the light of the day – really powerful soul that almost feels more like work that should have been coming out on Stax Records, given the deep soul approach that Jeanette brings to her vocals! Those tracks were unearthed by Ace/Kent, and appeared on various CD compilations over the past decade or so – but are collected here together for the first time on vinyl, along with one never-issued track – making for a killer set that includes "Cut Loose", "Jealous Moon", "Darling I'm Standing By You", "What Have You Got To Gain By Losing Me", "You'd Be Good For Me", "Break Someone Else's Heart", and "I Want You Mine".

✨✧ VariousThis Is Fame – 1964 to 1968 ... LP
Fame/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful collection of work from one of the greatest soul labels ever – a tiny Alabama imprint that helped bring the Muscle Shoals sound to the masses – thanks to the work of producer Rick Hall, and his crack band of session players! The music here set a whole new standard for soul in the south – and really helped bridge older 50s modes and the new wave of more expressive, more sophisticated singers – served up here in a special vinyl-only package that mixes big Fame classics with some real gems that never got their due back in the day – and even come cuts that appear here on vinyl for the first time ever! Titles include "She Ain't Gonna Do Right" by Clarence Carter, "Fortune Teller" by The Del-Rays, "That Kind Of Lovin" by Otis Clay, "Back In Your Arms" by George Jackson, "Feed The Flame" by Billy Young, "Almost Persuaded" by June Conquest, "A Piece of My Heart" by Art Freeman, "I Worship The Ground You Walk On" by Jimmy Hughes, "Blind Can't See" by Richard Earl & The Corvettes, "Come On Home" by Hrman Moore, "I'm Gonna Forget About You" by Arthur Conley, "Long Ago" by Ben & Spence, "Take Me Just As I Am" by Dan Penn, and "Don't Make Me Hate Loving You" by Jeanie Greene.

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreDolemite For President ... LP
Kent/Dolemite, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Rudy Ray Moore takes the white house – or at least tries to – in this cool 1972 album that must have been a great antidote to the campaigns of Richard Nixon and George McGovern! The set starts with Rudy running his way through a whole bunch of campaign issues – including "Free Love" and "Mary Wanna" – all delivered in faux politico mode, with a crowd cheering him on, and an introduction that features music from "Exodus"! The rest of the set is a bit more typical Dolemite material – almost even more raunchy than the presidential mode – and other titles include "Dance Of The Freaks", "Bulldaggers", "Good Pussy Lil", and "Sit In Your Mama's Lap". Language is raw – so be warned! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousPied Piper – The Pinnacle Of Detroit Northern Soul ... LP
Pied Piper/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stunning soul from the Detroit underground of the late 60s – a treasure trove of gems that literally grew up in the shadows of Motown – given that the work here was spearheaded by the Pied Piper Productions team of Jack Ashford, Mike Terry, Joe Hunter and Herbie Williams of the legendary Funk Brothers! There's a tighter, more energetic vibe to the material than on some of the more grandly soaring sounds of Detroit's bigger hits of the time – and we really love the unfussy, driving soul essence at play here – a gritty, groovy, and really hard-burning sound that makes just about every number here a gem – and a real change, if you only know the bigger hits from Motown! The track selection is wonderful – and even includes a number of never-issued tracks from the time, plus singles issued on Kapp and some smaller labels too. Titles include "Just Can't Leave You" by Tony Hester, "I Can't Hold On" by Lorraine Chandler, "We Go Together (alt with rap intro)" by The Cavaliers, "Voo Doo Madamoiselle" by September Jones, "More Than A Memory" by Nancy Wilcox, "That's When I Need You" by Freddy Butler, "This Heart Is Lonely" by Rose Batiste, "I'm Not Built That Way" by The Hesitations, You Only Live Twice (original take)" by Lorrane Chandler, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Set My Herat At Ease" by Mikki Farrow.

Cherry Red, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Mid 70's live album by Rudy Ray Moore, and one of the few records of his that we've seen that isn't on Kent. There's a band backing him up, but they're sort of in the background, and you can't hear them that well because Rudy's thundering voice is booming out over tracks like "Hell Of A Blow Job", "Crack Me Some Nuts", "Grow By The Minute", and "Fast Black".

Westbound, 1975. Very Good ... $11.99
Spanky's last album before her recent revival, a jazzy soulful effort cut for Westbound, with arrangements by Johnny Allen, and a nice moody mellow sound. The overall approach is quite different than most of her work with HB Barnum, but Spanky's voice is still in great shape, and Detroit soul legend Al Kent wrote most of the cuts. Titles include "The Downer I Go", "Love Song", "Non Stop Flight", "Will Power", "Home", and "Easy Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ParliamentFunkentelechy Vs The Placebo Syndrome ... LP
Casablanca, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
By this point, George Clinton and the P-Funk team were on top of the world! The record is a masterful dose of slick mothership jamming – perfectly woven together with that tightly compressed style that really served Clinton's production work well. The tracks are long, but never too loopy – and thanks to help from the Bernie Worrell, Jerome Brailey, Gary Shider, and the Horny Horns, the album stays very tight instrumentally all the way through! Loads of Parliament classics, including "Bop Gun", "Funkentelechy", "Sir Nose D'Voidoffunk", and the massive "Flash Light", which we've heard a million times, but which never ceases to amaze us!

Atlantic, 1981. Very Good- ... $6.99
Seminal 80s groove from 70s Miami soul star Gwen McCrae – reinventing herself here for the new decade with a totally different sound! The album's best known for the amazing club track "Funky Sensation" – one of those tracks that crossed over big, and had a huge influence in countless scenes – as the tune burned big on all fronts, including the worlds of disco, hip hop, and even roller skating! Other tunes follow in a similar format – with lots of nice snapping rhythms, thanks to arranger/composer/producer Kenton Nix – who really manages to break Gwen out of the standard Miami soul groove! The whole thing's great, and other titles include "Poyson", "All My Love", "No Deposit/No Return", "Movement", and "Have A Good Time". LP, Vinyl record album
