✨✧ ManhattansGreatest Hits ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Manhattans were one of those groups who knocked around for years in the indie soul world – cutting some fantastic material early on, but then losing direction for a number of years until they sprung forth as a huge act for Columbia during the early 70s. By that time, the band had more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ManhattansIt Feels So Good ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A real classic from The Manhattans – and just the kind of record to show why the group stayed so great after all the years!

ManhattansThat's How Much I Love You ... LP
Columbia, 1974. Very Good ... $4.99
Sublime work from The Manhattans – who are on top of the world at this point! The group's harmonies are excellent, a bit rough in the best parts – ala Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes during the Teddy Pendergrass years – but also capable of tremendous strength when forged ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ManhattansThere's No Good In Goodbye ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good ... $0.99
A stone classic from The Manhattans – still going strong long into the 70s with a classic harmony approach! The title tune sets the whole album up perfectly – and is the kind of a sad, slow ballad that the group was always perfect at – a number that grabs you with a compelling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1978. Sealed ... $6.99
Mellow magic from Johnny Mathis – a late 70s set that updates his older style for a crossover audience in adult contemporary!

Buddy MilesAll The Faces Of Buddy Miles ... LP
Columbia, 1974. Very Good ... $13.99
An unlikely meeting of talents, but a great one – as Buddy Miles' rougher groove comes into contact with the sublime 70s production talents of Johnny Bristol – who makes the whole album groove beautifully!

Peaches & HerbRemember ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A sweet, upbeat set from Peaches & Herb – definitely picking up where their other early 80s efforts left off on the contemporary dancefloor-ready soul tip – but still focused squarely on the great Peaches & Herb duo vocal chemistry!

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

Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A later effort from DJ Rogers, with his rich voice still sounding great.

A stone 60s smoker from Mongo Santmaria – and a great little set that really lives up to its title!

Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis.

A 70s classic from Phoebe Snow – one of those records that it seemed like everybody had to own back in the day – and for good reason!
