MaloDos ... LP
Warner, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first!

MandalaSoul Crusade ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Wild eyed organ soul from Mandala – a mix of raw and heavy R&B and fuzzed out garagey sounds from the Toronto combo – bringing their legendary approach to fiery performance to this lone rare studio set pretty well!

Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Stellar Manhattans from the start of the 80s – and proof that the group could still hold strong, even at a point when soul music was really changing up around them!

Monica's (Canada), Late 70s. Very Good ... $2.99
Obscure album from Canada, with a sound that feels like late 70s modern southern soul – ala Malaco or TK – but which was apparently recorded in Toronto.

Cotillion, 1978. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Uptempo ensemble funk from Mass Production, very much in a post-EWF vein.
