EMI/Dig This Way (Italy), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

James BrownJames Brown Sings Raw Soul ... LP
King, 1967. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99 24.99
Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s!

Roy BrownGood Rocking Tonight – Legendary Recordings Vol 2 ... LP
Route 66 (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Although Roy Brown had a slightly softer edge than some of his R&B contemporaries – he could definitely rock and wail when he wanted to, as you'll hear on this set!

Skye, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A hip little set from Ruth Brown – miles away from her earlier R&B for Atlantic, and much more in the adult, righteous, and contemporary mode you'd expect from the title!

A rare bit of gospel from the Louisville scene at the start of the 80s – but a set that's also got plenty of secular soul appeal too – thanks in part to the righteous message in Lamont's lyrics, which would fit with some of the deeper sounds of 70s soul – and thanks also to the ...
