Polydor (Japan), 1976. Used ... $28.99
An enduring classic from James Brown – quite possibly the strongest of his late 70s albums, and a record that nicely balances the harder funk of the early part of the decade with a more sophisticated style that almost gets slightly jazzy at times!

Hiram BullockGive It What U Got ... LP
Atlantic, 1987. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Highly electric work from Hiram Bullock – a set that's not only filled with his own full fuzzy lines on guitar, but which also features a fair bit of beats and keyboards as well! The album's still mostly in a fusion mode, but one that leans towards a bit of a rock influence on Hiram's solos ... (Jazz, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Solomon BurkeWe're Almost Home ... LP
MGM, 1972. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Rootsy soul album from Solomon, and perhaps his most stripped-down recording from the old days. In a way, these MGM recordings uncover more of his soulful vocals than the Atlantic albums did, although the setting's a little bit less traditional for Solomon. Includes a number of original cuts, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nice compilation of tracks that features some fine (and famous) moments from one of our favorite Chicago soul singers, recorded for the Vee Jay and Mercury labels. Most of these songs are pretty hard to get a hold of on vinyl any more, and though the package is a bit low budget, this is still a ... read more CD

Fantastic bit of solid soul from Jerry's Mercury period. Includes the great title cut, plus a lot of other originals like "Lost", "Beside You", "The Way I Love You", and more.

Genius work from Jerry Butler – working here with the early Gamble & Huff team, years before their 70s fame with Philly International, in a smooth soul style that would soon become known as Philly Soul! By the late 60s, Jerry's work with Vee Jay was long ended – the label had come ... read more CD

BwanaBwana ... CD
Acid Symposium, 1972. New Copy ... $4.99
An insanely wonderful bit of Latin funk! The groove is super heavy, and falls somewhere in between NuYorican soul and Chicano Power rock – with a sound that's pretty close to Black Sugar, but a little bit more psychedelic, due to the heavy guitars and keyboards in the grooves. Hard congas ... (Latin, Soul) read more CD

Warm soul from By All Means – a key group in the quiet storm soul years of the mid 80s – one that's equally well-suited to mellow numbers and more upbeat groovers! The trio features two male vocalists and one female – Jimmy Varner, Billy Sheppard, and Lynn Roderick – but ... read more CD

A great chapter in the career of trumpeter Donald Byrd – his post-Blue Note work with the group 125th Street NYC – which is kind of a second chapter to the jazzy fusion style he developed at the start of the 70s!

A slow-grooving boogie number from Junior Byron – one that's got a catchy sort of back/forth rhythm, which Junior uses to nice advantage with his swinging vocals on the tune! The version brings up the riffing guitar in the rhythms, in a way that's even cooler than the original mix – ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record
