Philip BaileyChinese Wall ... LP
Columbia, 1984. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A big breakthrough for Philip Bailey – and a record that was kind of a second-level explosion for the Earth Wind & Fire sound in the 80s! There's a definite crossover feel to the record – a style that takes Bailey's soulful vocals, and mixes them with lots of catchy hooks – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ron BanksTruly Bad ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the original Dramatics, singer Ron Banks strikes out here on his own – a slept on gem from the early 80s! The set's in a similar modern soul mode to LJ Reynolds, who also worked with him in the group, and was having a bit of a solo career of his own at the time. It's got sort of a D-T ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BT ExpressKeep it Up ... LP
Coast To Coast/Columbia, 1982. Sealed ... $14.99
Great later work from BT Express – a record with a sound that's cleaner, leaner, and more stripped-down than some of their earlier records! The style here is still the same as before – mostly soul aimed at the dancefloor, served up with a tremendous sense of bottom rhythm – but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has a torn corner. Cover has a cut corner, cutout hole, and some marker where exposed.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jean CarnSweet & Wonderful ... LP
TSOP/Columbia, 1981. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A beautiful album that is one of Jean's hardest to find, with a stunning modern soul groove that nicely pushes past her 70s work, and opens rich new territory. The sound is great, and a bit more sophisticated than on earlier albums – thanks to some strong arrangements from McKinley Jackson. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chambers BrothersLove Peace & Happiness ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
A 2LP set of work by The Chambers Brothers – one studio disc, and one live one, recorded at the height of their fame before a very lively audience! Disc one features Love Peace & Happiness – a set that features a number of original tracks, played with a harder soul feel than some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing on Direction.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Googie & Tom CoppolaShine The Light Of Love ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good ... $26.99
Soaring soul from Googie and Tom Coppola – much more of an R&B-inflected album than their earlier rock work in the group Air – sublimely produced with help from Jerry Peters, who brings in a sweet LA groove! Googie's vocals are especially great – with a higher-pitch Minnie ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp & a partially unglued top seam.)

✨✧ Tyrone DavisEverything In Place ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Great work from Tyrone Davis' under-recognized years at Columbia Records – a wonderful set of mature modern soul numbers that really let the singer find a whole new groove! The whole thing's nicely free of any sort of commercial overtones – and instead, the album has Davis really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tyrone DavisIn The Mood ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good ... $6.99
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a sticker in one corner.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Disco CircusDisco Circus ... LP
Lollipop/Columbia, 1978. Very Good- ... $9.99
A classic set of French disco tunes – one that blends electric and acoustic, in a style that really foreshadowed the current sound of the Paris scene! The singles on the set were a cover of "In A Gadda Da Vida" – almost unrecognizable compared to the heavy original, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(French pressing on Flarenasch in a US cover, with a peeled spot on back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Ronnie Dyson(If You Let Me Make Love To You Then) Why Can't I Touch You? (first cover version) ... LP
Columbia, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful first album from Ronnie Dyson – a set that's mostly soul, but also has some nicely trippy touches too – which provides a great springboard for Dyson's famous role in the musical Hair! Ronnie's got a voice that's gospelly deep at times – able to soar out with these ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Earth Wind & FireRaise! ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Earth Wind & Fire hits the 80s – and never misses a beat! Turns out that the group's older style of jazzy funk was a perfect fit for the boogie-styled rhythms of the post-disco era – heard here on the megahit "Let's Groove", and followed up by a beautiful batch of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Earth Wind & FireSpirit ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A big hit for the group – and a great album of smooth funky soul! Spirit is a perfect example of the way that Earth Wind & Fire could tighten things up, yet still keep them real – holding onto the deeply spiritual side that first made them great – but also focusing their ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ EmotionsRejoice ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge hit for both The Emotions and Maurice White – whose Kalimba Productions handled this album in the same hit mode they'd been using for Earth Wind & Fire! There's a polished, soaring bounce her that definitely shows the Earth Wind & Fire touch – and which takes the girls ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
EnchantmentEnchanted Lady ... LP
Columbia, 1982. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the best moments ever from Enchantment – a set that has the group still sticking with the great harmonies that got them started in the 70s, yet stretching out with a tight 80s groove that's just perfect for their energy! There's a decidedly old school feel going on here – a real ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a gold promo stamp on the back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Aretha FranklinElectrifying Aretha Franklin ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pretty great stuff by Aretha – despite what the pro-Atlantic Records books say! The record is one of the first she cut with John Hammond at Columbia, and although it's not in the classic soul mode of the Atlantic sessions, it's a darn nice batch of bluesy jazz tracks that would still stand ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Columbia Special Products pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Aretha FranklinLaughing On The Outside ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hey, we love this record! It's jazzy, and not at all like Aretha's soul sides for Atlantic – but Aretha's vocals sound wonderful on the record, in a completely different way than on later albums. Arrangements are by Robert Mersey, and they've got a feel that's similar to some of the classic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Roosevelt FranklinYear Of Roosevelt Franklin – Gordon's Friend From Sesame Street ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
While it's not as tripped out and funky as the Stark Reality LP, this children's record is still a 70s classic, with some nice funky R&B backing, but mostly worth it for the sing song children's rhyme vocals and spoken bits and skits between the songs. The whole thing's got a very Prince Paul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some marker at the top & light wear. Vinyl plays with some clicks & crackles.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Marvin GayeDream Of A Lifetime ... LP
Columbia, 1985. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A great posthumous release from the mighty Marvin Gaye – a set that's half comprised of material that Marvin was working on before his early death, and half pulled from rare personal recordings he'd entrusted to his mother! The cover carries a message that some of the material might be " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Al JohnsonBack For More ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful work by Al Johnson – one of the unsung heroes of mellow 70s soul, finally getting his shot on a major label after many years as a songwriter and arranger for other aritsts. Norman Connors brought Al to Columbia – and as he did with other talents in earlier years, like Phyllis ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Al Kooper with Shuggie OtisKooper Session ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Shuggie Otis' second appearance on record (the first was with Johnny Otis on the Cold Shot LP) – done in a studio blues jam headed by Al Kooper, who's more than willing to back off and let Shuggie get plenty of space to do his own thing! The record has Shuggie really going to town on a few ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
