ExportationsMeet The Exportations ... LP
United Artists, 1978. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
The Exportations seem to have only popped up for this one album, but they've got a solid harmony soul sound that's right up there with the best groups of the 70s – and which in fact feels a lot more like indie work from the early part of the decade than you'd guess from their placement on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ExposeWhat You Don't Know (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Cherry Pop (UK), 1989. Used 3 CDs ... $9.99
The female pop soul trio was alive and well in the 80s – morphed strongly from its 60s girl group roots and 70s disco chorus mode – to the point where a group like Expose was perfectly poised to take over the top of the charts! That catchy, poppy style is very firmly in place here ... read more CD

ExumaExuma ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $33.99
A landmark first album from Exuma – one of a handful of early 70s classics that really worked hard to break down musical genres! At some level, the set's got a Caribbean feel, but at others it's quite funky – a great mix of Exuma's Bahamian roots and some of the headier sounds that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Tay Shus, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great set of tracks – the first we've ever seen dedicated to The Fabulous Peps, a sock-soul vocal trio from Detroit – who recorded for the D-Town and other labels in the mid to late 60s. At some level, The Peps had an approach that was similar to The Impressions – but at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Heavy heavy funk from the mighty Yvonne Fair – a 70s bad soul sister that we'd rank right up there with Betty Davis! Yvonne got her start working with James Brown in a sweeter mode, but by the time of this mid 70s debut, she'd hit a really hard-wailing sort of style – one that had the ... read more CD

Erect, 1981. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An excellent bit of modern soul from Chicago – a group featuring lead vocalist Joyce Faison, who'd also done some backup work on other records at the time. Like some of the other titles on the Erect label, the groove here is a mix of mellow soul and 80s groove – and the best tracks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

RCA (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet 70s soul from Faith Hope & Charity – a trio who had recorded previously, but who really burst out here at the start of the disco years with some strong studio help from the great Van McCoy! The style of the record isn't really disco, but isn't far off either – as McCoy mixes ... read more CD

Relic, Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
Incredible work from one of the key groups in the early soul years!

Paisley Park, 1985. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
A great lost album of 80s soul, and one of the best side projects that Prince ever worked on! This was the only record from the Family, a group that consisted of former members of The Time – and it's very much in the Prince mode of the mid 80s, but also with a voice that's a bit different, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Of all the various pieces of the Paisley Park empire, this is probably the one we most fondly return to. A great mid tempo groover, that could be a standout single on one of Prince's album from the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rare funk from the New Orleans scene of the late 70s – work by an obscure combo with a great ear for the dancefloor! The overall sound is much more like music coming from Chicago, Detroit, or New York at the time – a post-Earth Wind & Fire style of funk that's got lots of tight ... read more CD

United Artists, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
Post-Tina, Ike Turner changed the name of his band to The Family Vibes, and put out a few nice records of mostly instrumental funk. Given that most of the band members were guys, he probably didn't push them around that much (and there were a lot of them, so they could probably gang up on him ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

20th Century/Westbound, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Classic work from Fantastic Four – who are really hitting their stride vocally, moving into a whole new sound from their work in the late 60s.

Farrakhan with musical backing by a small combo that includes keyboards, guitar, and drums.
