Maybe the last great album in the Ohio Players run for Mercury in the mid 70s – a set that's every bit as smooth, sexy, and funky as their other major label efforts from the time – and one that continued to refine the grittier funk of their roots!

Three girls and a guy – and one of the greatest 60s soul groups to ever come out of Philly!

Birthright/High Jazz (Switzerland), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 27.98
Stunning sounds from Michael Orr – a singer you might know from his secular work in the duo of Harris & Orr – and who still sounds incredible here in a more spiritual-styled set from the start of the 80s!

This UK Afro Funk group is slicking things up a bit for this 1973 album – but not in a bad way, because it actually kicks up the groove considerably.

Epic, 1974. Very Good ... $99.99
An insanely wonderful album! Shuggie Otis is the son of Johnny Otis – the LA R&B maestro who was moving heavily into funk at the end of the 60s – and he has this tripped out, super-dope guitar style that he played to strong effect on Johnny's albums of the late 60s and early 70s, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A slightly deeper vibe than previous work from The Ovations – but in a great way too!

Mar-Bon, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A weird one, but pretty compelling.

David PorterVictim Of The Joke? (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/Craft, 1971. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
Probably the best-remembered solo album from David Porter – one half of the famous Hayes/Porter team that ruled Stax Records in the 60s, although not as successful as an artist on his own as Isaac Hayes! Porter's style is a lot more adventurous – and this album's a wonderful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nolan PorterNo Apologies ... LP
Lizard, Early 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
Weird bit of rock-oriented soul on the Lizard label – home to some of the trippier acts in the early 70s soul scene. Lowell George plays lead guitar, and Nolan Porter sings in a weird off-kilter style – that's a bit bluesy, and not too far from the "down home" style of early ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nolan PorterNolan ... LP
ABC, 1972. Near Mint- ... $49.99
An obscure one – with some very catchy LA soul grooves, and some strange Carribbean soul elements running through the mix. Nolan's got a voice that's hard to describe – a bit fey, a bit dramatic, but also rootsy at the same time – and the overall presentation of the album's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

PortraitAfro Trees ... LP
Soul Japan (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $24.99
The first new album in many years from Portrait – and a great little set that shows a strong evolution of their early 90s groove! The group here just features original members Michael Angelo Saulsberry and Phillip Johnson – working with help from some new members and associates, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Positive ForcePositive Force With Denise Vallin ... LP
Liston/P-Vine (Japan), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
A great set of mellow soul from the start of the 80s – not the Positive Force of "We Got The Funk" fame, but a different groove that has a nicely smooth groove! The style here is halfway between soul and AOR, but handled with an indie charm that really keeps things compelling ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

PreachermanUniversal Philosophy – Preacherman Plays TJ Hustler's Greatest Hits ... LP
Luaka Bop, 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99 20.99
Wild work from one of the more compelling artists of the Cali soul scene – an Oakland singer/keyboardist who issued a rare album under the name of TJ Hustler in 1979, then kept on making his own sounds away from the mainstream! The vibe here is very very 80s underground – lots of Casio- ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Karen PreeKaren Pree ... LP
MCA, 1977. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
We only know Karen from this one album, but she's got a heck of a nice voice – one with a full range and jazzy richness that should have made her a much bigger star. There's traces here of the jazzy 70s pop of Joni Mitchell or Maria Muldaur – although the album itself is produced with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Billy PrestonThat's The Way God Planned It ... LP
Apple, 1969. Very Good ... $11.99
Righteous churchy soul from Billy Preston – with all the cliches and flourishes that made him a hit with the kids back in the old days. George Harrison produced, and that aspect of the record is perhaps its strongest – as Preston come across in the heavy wall of sound mode used by The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Preston & SyreetaBilly Preston & Syreeta ... LP
Motown, 1981. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A nice little follow-up to Billy Preston & Syreeta's work on the Fast Break soundtrack – and a record that's one of the few key sides to carry the older Motown duet soul mode firmly into the 80s! There's a great sense of balance here – one that uses Syreeta's sweeter vocal approach ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tidal Waves, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A key album in the post-Hendrix tradition of funky black rock – and the only album ever recorded by Cleveland's Purple Image! The approach here follows nicely in the same territory worked by Funkadelic and Fugi in the early days – a heady, fuzzed-up blend of trippy guitars, heavy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CBS, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Asha Pulthi's first album – an excellent set of funky soul tunes, recorded in Germany with backings that are a mixture of spacey electric, smooth funk, and campy easy grooves. Asha's voice is very weird – a bit in the "love to love you baby" mode, and with a range of sounds ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Classic work from this massively overlooked 70s soul singer! The set's one of a rare few albums cut by Sidney Joe Qualls – a fantastic talent who's probably better known for his work behind the scenes, and as a songwriter, than he is as a voice on his own.

One of Lou's most jazz-oriented albums – featuring backing by Les McCann's famous trio with Leroy Vinnegar and Ron Jefferson, perfectly suited to Lou's soulful renditions of the tunes on the album.

A great solo moment from Eugene Record – the singer who'd rose to fame with The Chi-Lites, and who still sounds pretty darn great here on his own!
