Back Beat/MCA, 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Classic Memphis soul from the great OV Wright – a nicely priced collection of his classic work for Backbeat Records, all of which is produced by the legendary Willie Mitchell! The sound here is different than Mitchell's work on Hi Records – still with that warm Memphis glow, but a bit ... read more CD

OV WrightNucleus Of Soul ... LP
Back Beat, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $39.99
Early work from OV Wright – and some of his best recordings ever! The album's right out of the deep soul scene of the 60s – and has a warm, bubbling feel that's partly rootsy, but also a bit more sophisticated than a lot of other singers in Wright's camp at the time. Production is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OV WrightWe're Still Together ... LP
Hi Records/Cream, 1979. Very Good+ ... $5.99
OV Wright's getting a bit smooth, but still sounding great – working here with really full backings from Willie Mitchell, at a level that's a bit more upbeat than his previous album at Hi Records! There's a bit more of a groove on these tunes, but most are still miles from the dancefloor ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Wuf TicketYa Mama (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An obscure 80s groover on Prelude! The record has a choppy funk style, with vocals that might be called "rap", but which are more in that sharp spoken style that you find on some New York slick funk records from the time. Most interesting is that James Mason co-produced and wrote the ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

ABC/Dusty Groove, 1974. Used ... $4.99
Majestic music from the mighty Popcorn Wylie – the Detroit soul legend best known for his work in the 60s, but an artist who really shines on this rare 70s set for ABC! The album was done during the same stretch as Lamont Dozier's ABC work – and like those records, this set features ... read more CD

Martin YarbroughMartin Yarbrough Showcase ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good ... $5.99
A set of African-American folk from Chicago, from the city's racially integrated scene that spawned talents like Oscar Brown Jr. and Terry Callier. Martin Yarbrough's got a nice lively style, and he plays here in a style that's sort of a mix between Callier and Brown, with a lot of short folksy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

YelloYou Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess ... CD
Vertigo (Germany), 1983. Used ... $2.99
The first rumblings of the pop genius in Yello's music – a record that still has all the best quirky electronics of their first two sets, but which also focuses that energy into a sound that's often more direct and oddly hook-oriented on the best numbers! There's a really percussive vibe ... (Rock, Soul) read more CD

"Computer Game" is one of the best early singles from this famous Japanese combo. The cut's got plenty of electronics, as expected, but it's also got a wonderfully soulful groove – with some Barry White-esque strings that provide a nice degree of warmth, and help the cut hit a ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

We're not certain where this falls in the order of YMO Japanese releases, but it's definitely a bit after their stunning US debut, and we're pretty certain never released outside Japan. A bit more stripped down, but still amazing electro pop from some of the true originators of the genre. 10 ... (Rock, Soul) read more CD

The second album from Haruomi Hosono, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Yukihiro Takahashi, not as much of an electro groove filled affair as the first, but still a great batch of quirky techno-electro Asian pop with lots of great bubbling synth touches! 8 tracks in all including "Behind The Mask", ...

Mighty Joe YoungChicken Heads ... LP
Ovation, 1974. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Funky blues from Chicago – and a lot better than Joe's other album on Ovation! This one's got a lot more instrumental moments, which means that the funky blues band can groove a bit harder – and that Joe's guitar can slide in where you might have otherwise had some snoozy vocals. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ovation, 1976. Very Good ... $4.99
Modern electric blues from Chicago, featuring Mighty Joe on guitar and vocals, plus backing by a tight rocking band. There's some electric keyboards in the group, which gives it less of a rootsy sound than you'd expect – but the album's still pretty spare. Titles include "Takes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
