Ray Parker Jr & RaydioWoman Needs Love ... LP
Arista, 1981. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The start of Ray Parker's big hit run of the 80s – a set that has the Raydio group stripped down to just a duo behind Ray, and Parker very firmly out in the lead on vocals! The title hit's a smooth standard that's kept on going for many years – just the kind of cut that crossed Ray ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Steve ParksMovin' In The Right Direction ... LP
Solid Smoke/Luv N' Haight, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 25.98
A completely unique little set from singer Steve Parks – a set cut in the Bay Area scene of the early 80s – but done with a righteous 70s vibe that mixes jazz, soul, and bits of Latin influences as well! The overall approach is definitely soul, but there's plenty of jazz inflections in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

ParletWolf Tickets/Help From My Friends ... 12-inch
Casablanca, 1980. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Both cuts are nice – still quite P-Funky, with a midtempo groove that recalls the best of late Funkadelic, with the Parlet ladies up front in the mix vocally, but the rest of the P-Funk crew doing their job as always! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a Casablanca sleeve.)

An amazing album that's probably one of the most unified albums that George Clinton ever recorded!

An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics!

Ahhhhh . . . By this point, George Clinton and the P-Funk team were on top of the world! The record is a masterful dose of slick mothership jamming – perfectly woven together with that tightly compressed style that really served Clinton's production work well. The tracks are long, but never ... read more CD

An overlooked later gem from Parliament – a set that's very tight and funky, and which really picks up the groove first laid down on "Flashlight"! There's a tightly snapping approach here that rivals the best late 70s work by Funkadelic – the later P-Funk mode that's even ... read more CD

Casablanca, 1978. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
The Mothership goes under water – as George Clinton and crew groove away nicely on this water-themed set of tracks designed to raise Atlantis from the deep!

Invictus/Demon (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 27.99
An insane bit of fuzzed-out funk! This is Parliament's rare first album – a trippy batch of tunes that come off of Clinton's experimentation in the Detroit soul scene, infused by the rock-heavy energy of the city at the time, and probably a heck of a lot of cannabis, too! The record is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A funky treasure – finally unleashed!

Mar-Bon, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A weird one, but pretty compelling. Cyril Paul is an African American folk singer – less in the mode of jazz/soul folkies like Terry Callier or Oscar Brown, than in the style of the New York/Boston new traditionalists of the early 60s. At most levels, the album's a straight folk one – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chrysalis, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $3.99
The mid 80s... when a song like this passed for politics in music! Forget the stupid message lyrics, though, and remember that Hardcastle cracked a lot of scenes with the cut – forging kind of a pop-political-street beat kind of groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

An overlooked groover by this 60s rock act – recorded in Memphis by Chips Moman, with a hard sock-soul approach that's almost a blue eyed soul take on the sound of Stax! There were probably more than a few famous Memphis session players on the set, and you can certainly imagine who might ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
