✨✧ Candi StatonStand By Your Man ... LP
Fame, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Great early work by Candi – with a rawness that you'd never imagine from her later records! Rick Hall produced, and the whole thing was recorded with the kind of raw hard sound that Muscle Shoals was built on – deep, heartfelt, rootsy, and incredible! Candi's voice is remarkably ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Arbee StidhamTime For Blues ... LP
Mainstream, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A really interesting setting for the vocals and guitar of bluesman Arbee Stidham – set up here in front of a larger ensemble led by Ernie Wilkins, who brings in some nice currents of funk and soul as well!

StingPleasure ... LP
ABC, 1978. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Not to be confused with the group Pleasure, or the ex-Police leadman Sting – this group are a pretty darn sweet disco trio with a really nice groove!

✨✧ Sly StoneSly Stone – Recorded In San Francisco 1964 to 1967 ... LP
Sculpture, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $9.99
Early stuff by Sly – and pretty nice! The mix of styles is mostly hard soul, a bit jazz, and tiny roots of Sly's later funky style – and the record has a lot of cuts that may not be as great as Sly's Epic recordings, but which would sound pretty darn nice if they were on an obscure 45! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Street FareStreet Fare ... LP
Atlantic, 1987. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Maybe not as "street" as you might think from the group's name – or from the fake graffiti on the cover – but a pretty nice little mainstream soul album, and one that's almost a precursor to later New Jack sounds to come!

Street FeetStreet Feet ... LP
Baby Grand/Everland (Austria), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
The street feet here are pretty funky ones – maybe more so than you'd guess from the relatively "stock" look of the cover image – as the album's got the kind of sharp instrumental core that you'd be likely to find on some of the best Bay Area groovers from late 70s Fantasy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing! This lost Roy Ayers-produced gem from the early 80s has not only been one of the biggest sample records of all time, but it's also become one of the holy grails of the groovy record collecting scene!

A mid 70s album from the Stylistics which is not a great one but is has some moments.

Bill Summers' London Style here is one that's definitely influenced by the changes on the dancefloor coming from the UK in the early 80s – and the groove is a slightly more electrified take on the rhythms that Bill was laying down on previous albums for MCA!
