Arista, 1975. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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 ...

Arista/One Way, 1980. Used ... $18.99
An overlooked Brecker Brothers gem from the end of the 70s – easily one of their most soulful sets from the Arista years, and a record that's got way more lasting power than the Cold War reference of its title!

One Way/Arista, 1978. Used ... $8.99
No heavy metal here – just tight and funky jamming from the mighty Brecker Brothers! There's a bit more guitar here than on some of their other records – hence, possibly, the title – but the whole thing's still very much in that mix of soulful fusion and jazzy soloing that the ...

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.

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!

A soaring set from Leon Bridges – a full length second album that's every bit as classic as his debut, but in a completely different way!

A nice nice bit of 80s groove! Patrick Adams handled the mix, and the cut's got a bit of an electro feel, mixed with some stronger than usual vocals for a club cut like this. Nice hook, and some good 80s keyboards and drum machine beats! 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of the last great albums from James Brown!

Polydor/Now Again, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
A legendary bit of fuzzy funk from James Brown – an important collaboration with the mighty Dave Matthews, who brings a more tripped-out feel to the record than some of James' other King sessions of the time!

One of the two beautifully sweet albums of soul that the lovely Sheree Brown cut for Capitol in the early 80s.
