Capricorn, 1974. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Post-Atlantic work from Percy Sledge, but a set that's still pretty darn great – produced with a newly sophisticated edge in Muscle Shoals by the legendary Quin Ivy, who really seems bent on helping Sledge break out of earlier styles in his music!

Atlantic, 1966. Very Good ... $19.99
Warm and tender, but pretty darn rootsy too – a beautiful illustration of the sound that made Percy Sledge one of the deepest soul singers to record for Atlantic in the 60s!

An odd little album in which Sly's classic funky tunes are remixed and extended by John Luongo – ostensibly for play on the dancefloors of the late 70s.

Sweet CreamSweet Cream & Other Delights ... LP
Shadybrook, 1978. Very Good+ ... $7.99
This one's probably best known for the cover – a disco parody of the famous Herb Albert Sweet Cream cover, one that shows an African American model covered in whipped cream like the one on the more famous A&M record jacket.

Heavenly soul from the lovely Sweet Inspirations!

SweetwaterJust For You ... LP
Reprise, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
The group's second album – and a really sweet batch of tracks that mix together rock and soul influences with touches of west coast hippy jazz, in a style that's almost an LA answer to Rotary Connection, but without all the baroque arrangements.

SweetwaterSweetwater ... LP
Reprise, Early 70s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A pretty great debut from Sweetwater – described on the cover as "Eight high-octane musicians who met and jammed in the great peanut butter octopus that is Los Angeles!"

SwordsmenSwordsmen ... LP
RCA, 1969. Sealed ... $19.99
A fantastic album of obscure soul! The group features the duo of Eddie Anderson and Ray Thompson – trading vocal duets in a pointed, fragile, southern-sounding style.

✨✧ SyreetaSet My Love In Motion ... LP
Tamla, 1981. Very Good+ ... $3.99
An obscure later album by Syreeta – but still a great one! The lady's moving into an 80s groove on most of these cuts – but she's still got that sweet heavenly vocal approach, very similar to Minnie Riperton, whose late style she's taking up on a number of the album's smooth, well ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
Twice as sweet, and mighty neat – a killer set from Taste Of Honey, and one that has the girls moving away from Mizell Brothers help in the studio, and getting some great grooves from George Duke!
