Mainstream, 1973. Very Good ... $24.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin!

Stax, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Rance Allen was one of the greatest singers on Stax who never made it during the 70s – probably because he labored in obscurity on Stax's subsidiary Truth label, a gospel imprint where Allen was unjustly stuck because of his roots in the music.

Although she began her career as more of a hard soul diva, this LP from the late 70's is a bit of an attempt to turn her into a club diva.

Black Voices (aka The Watts Prophets)On The Street In Watts ... LP
ALA, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A chilling statement from the west coast scene of the 70s – the first album from The Watts Prophets, the ultra-powerful group who emerged from the LA turmoil of the 60s.

Wonderfully electric work from John Blair – a set that's a fair bit more fusion overall than his album for CTI – and which features some really great sounds from the "vitar"!

CTI, 1977. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A strange bit of soul from the later years of CTI – and one of the few albums we've ever seen from the enigmatic John Blair!
