A.MA (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99

Zeshan BVetted ... CD
Minty Fresh, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A record that certainly deserves its title – as the sound is well-vetted right from the start, and not at all the gimmicky approach you might expect! Zeshan B might well be forging a whole new genre here – one of Indian soul – as the singer was raised by Indian parents in ... read more CD

Dunham/Daptone, 2011. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Gritty, powerful raw soul from Charles Bradley – the full length debut from the 62-year-old Brooklyn singer – backed perfectly by The Menahan Street Band! It's incredible, a record that sounds just as rawly emotional and impeccably soulful in 2011 as it would have in 1971 – much ... read more CD

Brownout Presents – Brown SabbathBrown Sabbath 2 ... CD
Ubiquity, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A sweet return to Brown Sabbath territory – that wicked blend of deep funk rhythms and fuzzy guitar, served up by the Brownout collective! The groove has some of the Latin elements that you'd know from Adrian Quesada's other work – but the rising guitar lines dominate a lot more – ... read more CD

Don BryantDon't Give Up On Love ... CD
Fat Possum, 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
The first album in decades from Memphis soul legend Don Bryant – a singer who hardly even gave us any recordings back when he was in his prime!

Burnt Sugar ArkestraAll You Zombies Dig The Luminosity ... CD
Avantgroidd, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 15.00
The Burnt Sugar sound just gets more and more complex over the years – to a point where it's even more mindblowing than when it started, and where it's hard to tell where one influence starts and another one ends! In a way, the approach here is like a fully righteous extension of some of the ... read more CD

Record Kicks (Italy), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99

Record Kicks (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
The first full-length from Tanika Charles – a deep funk singer with a difference! Tanika definitely works in some of the old school soul modes that you'll know from other artists on the Record Kicks label – but there's also a bit more of a contemporary crackle to her music, too – ... read more CD

El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before!

Timmion (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic full length set from trumpeter Jukka Eskola and his Soul Trio – a combo with a strange sort of name!

Lee Fields & The ExpressionsSpecial Night ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 17.98
A really fantastic album from the legendary Lee Fields – a set that blows us away every bit as much as his stellar My World album! Like that set, this one's got kind of a moody early 70s vibe – almost a New Jersey soul approach at times, but tinged with more southern modes – ... read more CD
Also available Special Night ... LP 13.99

A massive look at the music of Greyboy – one that features classic cuts, previously unreleased tracks, and rare mixes as well!

Ubiquity, 2004. Used ... $5.99
One of the most unified albums we've ever heard from Greyboy – an excellent little set that perfectly bridges his two loves of funk and hip hop! The core style is in the hip hop-infused mode of earlier years – with lots of programming and scratches by Greyboy himself – but there's ... read more CD

Karl Hector & The MalcounsUnstraight Ahead ... CD
Now Again, 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $6.99 17.98
They definitely got the title right on this one – because the group never seems to move in any sort of direct line – instead always tripping around nicely with all these hip little twists and turns! Karl Hector & The Malcouns are the same loose collective of players you'll know ... read more CD
