Arista, 1975. Very Good ... $3.99
The start of a legendary run from superjazz brothers Randy and Michael Brecker – trumpeter and tenorist, respectively – already players who'd worked on a hell of a lot of previous sessions, both as a pair and on their own – finally stepping here into some well-deserved fame in the ...

Brenda & The TabulationsBrenda & The Tabulations ... LP
Top & Bottom, 1971. Very Good- ... $19.99
Great stuff – and possibly the best album ever by this classic harmony soul group! The style is wonderful – with Brenda's sweet voice in the lead, and backing by the all-male Tabulations. The overall approach was used by Gladys Knight & The Pips for years, but we've always liked ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brenda & The TabulationsI Keep Coming Back For More ... LP
Chocolate City, 1977. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Sublime second generation soul from Brenda & The Tabulations – a sweet set of Philly grooves, recorded at Sigma sound with help from Norman Harris, Bobby Eli, and John Davis! The album's every bit as groove-heavy as you'd expect from work by those dancefloor heavyweights – and the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chess/P-Vine (Japan), Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of the only full sets we've ever seen to document the great run of singles cut by Jackie Brenston in the early 50s – work initially done in Memphis, as a real precursor to that city's soul scene – and later cut also in Chicago, with a really hard-wailing approach! The set's titled ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brother To BrotherShades In Creation ... LP
Turbo, 1977. Sealed ... $2.99
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A&M, 1980. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
More hit magic from the Brothers Johnson – still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and virtually setting up the blueprint for jazzy soul in the 80s!

An all-star soul affair produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring the talents of studio greats like Harvey Mason, Billy Cobham, Toots Thielmans, Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour, and many others – not to mention the Brothers themselves!

Brothers JohnsonOut Of Control ... LP
A&M, 1984. Sealed ... $4.99
The Brothers Johnson are hardly out of control on this mid 80s set – as the album's got a tight groove that shows the duo are still going strong long past their 70s fame! As before, there's a bit of bounce on the bottom – that bassy groove that the pair first crafted back in their ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Brown & The Soul SearchersAny Other Way To Go? ... LP
Rhythm Attack (Germany), 1987. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A later Go-Go effort from the legendary Chuck Brown – quite different from his Soul Searchers work, but very much in the best spirit of DC Go-Go material of the time! Like some of the more famous sets of this type, there's a very live, spontaneous feel to the whole record – lots of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of Brother James' rare Christmas albums, which are always a treat because they include loads of original material that showcase both sides of the James Brown sound.

Polydor, 1971. Very Good ... $19.99
James Brown really opens up on this early 70s classic – really showing the world the amazing groove he was crafting with his band – who were let loose to jam in the studio, spinning out some really long grooves – which were then cut down to make this sweet little record!

James BrownJam 1980s ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Very Good- ... $3.99
At the end of the 70s, James was combatting the disco movement by forging his own brand of dancefloor music – a super-heavy fusion of straight-on funk, but with a more up-tempo twist and extended in a style to compete with some of the hit 12" singles being issued at the time.

King, 1967. Very Good ... $16.99
Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ahhhh. . . This one takes us back to the 80s – when there was so little good work by James in print that Rhino was actually able to scoop him up for a quickie compilation.

Polydor, 1975. Very Good ... $8.99
One of the last great albums from James Brown! Not as totally sublime as Payback or some of the others from the 70s – but James is still working here with Fred Wesley and Dave Matthews – and many of the cuts retain the funk of a few years past.
