Billy PrestonMost Exciting Organ Ever ... LP
Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good ... $6.99
Well, we don't think we'd call this the most exciting organ ever – but the record is one of Billy's best, and it's got a hard wailing raw groove that's missing from a lot of his later work! There's a very churchy sound in the organ, with all the stops open and a very large sound coming out ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Captain SkyConcerned Party No 1 ... LP
TEC, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
One of the greatest albums by this super-stylized funkster from Chicago!

And more than that, the Captain's style was equally ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Joe WhiteBlack & White ... LP
Monument, 1969. Very Good ... $24.99
Damn soulful work from Tony Joe White – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was so great at skirting both the borders of rock and soul music at the end of the 60s!

Instant FunkGet Down With The Philly Jump ... LP
TSOP, 1976. Very Good ... $19.99
Great early work from Instant Funk – cut back at a time when the instrumental combo was lean and mean – and much more deserving of the "funk" in their name! The style here is sweet instrumental Philly – a great cross between disco and soul, done with all the best top ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy WilsonFor Once In My Life (aka Welcome To My Love) ... LP
Capitol, 1967. Very Good ... $1.99
Nancy Wilson gets some great help here from Oliver Nelson – whose solid arrangements make the record one of our favorites from Wilson's early Capitol years!

A masterpiece from Gene Harris – an album that's probably been his biggest influence on the sound of soul in the 21st Century, and for good reason too!

Hardly a folk album, despite the title – and instead a wicked batch of raw bluesy numbers from the mighty John Lee Hooker!
