Janet JacksonJanet Jackson ... LP
A&M, 1982. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Janet's first LP, produced by Foster Sylvers, with a number of tracks written by Rene & Angela. With a great picture of Janet on the back looking an awful lot like a teenage version of Penny. Includes "Say You Do", "Young Love", 'Don't Mess Up this Good Thing" and 'For ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jermaine JacksonFeel The Fire ... LP
Motown, 1977. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Jermaine's going the way of most of Motown at this point – popping the bass pretty heavily, and grooving in a smooth funky mode. The cuts that go too over the top with the funky stuff definitely lose us – but there's a few decent mellow soul tracks that redeem the album, and which keep ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michael JacksonThriller ... LP
Epic, 1982. Very Good Gatefold ... $13.99
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Millie JacksonCaught Up ... LP
Spring, 1974. Very Good- ... $5.99
Seminal 70s southern soul from Millie Jackson – a record that's head and shoulders above most of what she recorded in later years! Before she got all naughty and raunchy, Millie Jackson was one of the best female soul singers to come out of the south – and this album's a work of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

Millie JacksonMillie Jackson (1972) ... LP
Spring, 1972. Very Good- ... $11.99
Great stuff! This Millie Jackson's tremendous debut album – and the work here is completely different from later records that have her more in a bitchy mode! Here, Millie's a heartbroken southern diva – right in the vein of Ann Sexton, Doris Duke, or Shirley Brown – and even ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some peeling along the bottom.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jackson 5Maybe Tomorrow ... LP
Motown, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A great early album by the Jacksons – with a monster batch of cuts arranged by Gene Page and The Corporation, all put together with a soulful groove that the group definitely lost on later albums! The highlight is the funky "It's Great To Be Here" – an excellent lesser-known ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Peter Jacques BandFire Night Dance ... LP
Prelude, 1979. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A spacey little set of clubby grooves – with lead vocals from the legendary Leroy Burgess! The tracks here are all quite long and building – very much in the classic Prelude Records mode, and with a fair dose of European influence, but mostly just on the keyboards – which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy James & The VagabondsLife ... LP
Pye/Casablanca, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
An American release of material that Jimmy James recorded in the UK for Pye Records – most of which was issued previously on the album I'll Go Where The Music Takes Me. As on that one, the set is strong mid 70s work from Jimmy – bouncing back with a tight little groover, the title cut ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a cut corner.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Rick JamesGlow ... LP
Gordy, 1985. Very Good ... $1.99
Rick James hits a smoother sort of style here – one that's almost a compressed take on the mainstream version of funk first crafted on his earlier records, fused into a more radio-friendly approach for the Prince generation! The sound's actually not that bad – and the record has an ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes printed inner sleeve.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Al JarreauAl Jarreau In London ... LP
Warner, 1984. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Al Jarreau hits the stage in the UK – clearly working before a large crowd that's very appreciative of his superstar talents in the early 80s! The sound here is a bit less intimate than some of Jarreau's earlier studio records – instrumentation that's designed more to fit the larger ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Al JarreauBreakin' Away ... LP
Warner, 1981. Very Good ... $0.99
Sublime sounds from Al Jarreau – exactly the kind of record that made him a unique superstar at the time of its release, and which still continues to fly Al's flag strongly all these many years later! Jarreau's got that perfect blend between jazz roots and soulful expression here – set ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

JBsBreakin' Bread ... LP
People, 1974. Very Good ... $14.99
An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others! The band is still in fine fine form – with none of the fast-funk or proto-disco of some later recordings – and they're working here in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some marker, light wear and partially unglued bottom seam.)

JBsFood For Thought ... LP
People, 1972. Very Good ... $36.99
The classic first album by The JBs – James Brown's Fred Wesley-led backing band, and the force behind most of his greatest records of the early 70s! The band are incredible at this point – sharper, harder, and funkier than just about any other combo around – and that includes all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JBsHustle With Speed ... LP
People, 1975. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most fantastic albums by the JBs – a masterpiece of funky jamming, tight instrumentation, and that free yet tight style of the James Brown 70s years! The tracks are longer than on some of the earlier singles – especially the 8 minute jammer "(It's Not The Express) It's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and some splitting at the top seam.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jimmie & VellaHeartbeat ... LP
Imperial, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
Lost male/female duet record, with a sing song soul sound that's a bit like Peggy Scott and JoJo Benson, or other pop soul duets of the time. A bit sweet, and a bit pop/soul, but with some nice moments. Bobby Womack plays guitar and contributes the track "People Make the World", while ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has clear tape on the seams.)

JJ Johnson, Joe Simon, Millie JacksonCleopatra Jones – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Spring/Warner, 1973. Very Good ... $22.99
One of the best of the blacksploitation scores of the early 70s – a masterpiece of music that we rate every bit as high as Shaft or Superfly – maybe even higher! The music here is incredible – a surprising funky turn for JJ Johnson, who most folks know for his straighter jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear & splitting.)
