Lost GenerationYoung, Tough & Terrible (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
They're young and tough – and especially wonderful too – easily one of the most compelling harmony soul groups to ever hail from the Windy City! The set's a Chicago soul gem from the early 70s – recorded with a laidback, slightly tripped-out vibe that's different than the tighter ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Louisiana RedLouisiana Red Sings The Blues ... LP
Atco, 1972. Near Mint- ... $14.99
70s blues from Louisiana Red, but cut with a rough-edged style that reminds us a fair bit of mid 50s Chess Records work from Chicago! The style's a nice back-to-basics one that helps Red avoid the growing cliches dragging down blues at the time – and the production keeps things lean, mean, ...

Love Childs Afro Cuban Blues BandOut Among 'Em ... LP
Roulette, 1975. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A sweet set of 70s Latin Disco – less Afro-Cuban than you might expect, but a great illustration of the way that older Latin modes had filtered down to more mainstream dancefloors at the time! There's definitely still some Latin elements in the mix – but the set's also got Michael ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Great stuff – the beginning of the Love Unlimited dynasty! As we're sure you know, Barry White produced this little gem of a record, and the album was a key proving ground for many of his stone cold soul production ideas before he went off and started doing the lead vocals himself.

The second album from LTD – very much a funky soul record, with lots of heavy bass and strong boogie touches on the groove!

A&M, 1974. Very Good ... $6.99
The first record by LTD – and an excellent bit of 70s soul that has the group working at their tightest! The tracks are shorter and a lot more focused than on later albums, and in a way, they sort of remind us of the ensemble funky soul sound that you'd hear on some of the early New Birth ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Wonderfully weird sounds from Lucifer – a record cut during the powerhouse 70s soul years of the Invictus/Hot Wax label, but done with a sound that's much more bluesy and rootsy than any other work for the company!

70s soul from Brazil – and a tremendously strong effort from the legendary Tim Maia!
