EMI/Capitol, Early 80s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A selection of tracks pulled from Clinton's early 80s records for Capitol – post Parliament/Funkadelic offerings that were actually surprisingly successful at the time, and which have a Zapp-like approach to funk that's kept them bubbling with the old school crowd.

Cold BloodThriller ... CD
Reprise/Collectables, 1973. Used ... $9.99
A great later album from this legendary San Francisco crossover soul combo!

Atlantic/Collectors Choice, 1969. Used ... $8.99
Not Sweet Soul, but deep soul – courtesy of one of the best artists recording for Atlantic Records in the 60s!

RCA/Abkco, 1963. Used ... $4.99
Wonderful mellow work from Sam Cooke – and a set that's recorded with a sound that's very much in keeping with the "night beat" that you might expect from the title! In fact, there's not so much a "beat" as a simple easy groove – a gentle sort of "night" ... read more CD

A tasty little disco album that's a lot better than you might think!
