ZZ HillDues Paid In Full ... LP
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A great Kent collection of vintage work from ZZ Hill! The sound here is more southern soul than his later blues – with material from his earliest sessions on Kent Records, when ZZ was working in a style that mixed southern soul with some funky blues, and which stands along with some of the best deep soul of the late 60s. Titles include "Happiness Is All I Need", "Hey Little Girl", "I Found Love", "What More", "That's It", "Everybody Has To Cry", and "If I Could Do It All Over". LP, Vinyl record album

Jeanette JonesDreams All Come True (180 gram white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
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".

BB KingJungle ... LP
Kent, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the standout classics from BB King's legendary run at Kent – a classic 60s LP with a cool little cover to boot! Arrangements on the set are by Maxwell Davis, but the overall sound is still plenty gritty – raw, rootsy electric blues with a definite Memphis influence, and a bit of a Chicago 60s twist. Titles include "Beautician Blues", "The Jungle", "5 Long Years", "Eyesight To The Blind", "Blue Shadows", "The Worst Thing In My Life", "Blues Stay Away", "Got Em Bad", and "It's A Mean World".

Rudy Ray MooreCockpit – The Third Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the coolest, tightest albums from the early years of Rudy Ray Moore – and a set that adds in a fair bit of musical backings with his raunchy comedy too! The backing is sometimes funky, mostly more in a soul or jazz mode – and it gives Rudy's party-styled work a really strong approach – especially on his classic presentation of "Petey Wheatstraw – The Devil's Son-In-Law", which is done here in a nice extended version. But the whole album's great too – and other tracks include "Have You Seen My Mule", "Like A Brother", "The Big Shipwreck", "Mop Bucket", and "Pool Shooting Monkey". LP, Vinyl record album

Rudy Ray MooreDolemite For President ... LP
Kent, 1972. Very Good ... $9.99
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

Rudy Ray MooreThis P*ssy Belongs To Me – The Second Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
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

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.

VariousPied Piper – The Pinnacle Of Detroit Northern Soul ... LP
Pied Piper/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

VariousThis Is Fame – 1964 to 1968 ... LP
Fame/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99
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.

Dalton & DubarriSuccess & Failure ... LP
ABC, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Pretty compelling stuff from Gary Dalton and Kent Dubarri – an LA-based team with a soulful rock sound, sort of in the mode of funkier bits on records by the likes of Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, and other 70s crossover acts. The record's a nice one if you dig that AOR Free Soul sound – and the best cuts mix tight studio playing with some great 70s AM radio songwriting. The standout cut for DGA customers is "Pretty Funky" – which actually is nice and funky in parts, and has some good sample changes. "I'm Just a Rock N Roller" has a nice open drum break, made famous by DJ Krush. Other tracks include "Hookers' Dolls", "Slow Motion Man", "Daddy's Never Know", "Joy Of Comin' Home", and "Cold Outside Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMen In The Glass Booth – Groundbreaking Re-edits & Remixes By The Disco Era's Most Influential DJs – Part 2 (5LP set) ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 5LP ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. Vinyl part 2 features five full records – all with lots of space for the tracks to stretch out – and titles include "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

✨✧ 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!

✨✧ ParliamentClones Of Dr Funkenstein ... LP
Casablanca, 1976. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics! The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at the time – still with all the fuzzy haired elements of earlier years, but presented with a bit more focus – and a powerhouse swing that really drives the tracks home with a funky groove on the bottom! There's a flowing sort of energy here that almost makes you think that the whole thing just emerged naturally from the brain of George Clinton – but all ensemble players have a strong hand in the action, and really get some great moments in on the set. Cuts include "Gamin' On Ya", "Do That Stuff", "Children Of Production", and "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gwen McCraeGwen McCrae (1981) ... LP
Atlantic, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
