✨✧ Aretha FranklinYeah!!! – In Person With Her Quartet (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia (France), 1965. New Copy ... $8.99
A hip little live date from Aretha Franklin – one that's got a very jazzy feel, and some great small combo backings! The album's almost a distillation of the jazzy styles on Aretha's first albums for Columbia – taken into even leaner territory here, in ways that really set Franklin ... read more CD

✨✧ Chris KennerLand Of 1000 Dances ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99
Classic New Orleans soul from Chris Kenner – and just about the only 60s album issued under his name! Chris was one of the first New Orleans artists to veer into the funkier side of the spectrum – and here, he's working on a batch of all-original, chunky bottomed-tracks – filled ... read more CD

✨✧ Marvin GayeWhat's Going On (expanded edition) ... CD
Motown, 1971. New Copy ... $4.99 5.98
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working ... read more CD

✨✧ VariousAdam Blew His Hat – Roots Of Rock N Roll Vol 5 ... CD
President (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $3.99
Jazz, blues, and a heck of a lot of R&B – all brought together in this cool collection of work from the pre-rock years in the US! The set's a bit light on notes, but features some really well-chosen cuts – tunes that go past the obvious, but still illustrate some of the best ... read more CD

✨✧ CandidoDancin' & Prancin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $4.99
A key chapter in the rich long legacy of Candido on record – a set that pushes the percussion maestro strongly into the disco generation – with wonderful results that are still massively strong all these many years later! Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around ... (Latin, Soul) read more CD

✨✧ MatataFeelin' Funky ... CD
President (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $3.99 14.99
Hard funky soul with an Afrobeat backbone from Matata – who arrived on the London scene (via Kenya) in the mid 70s! Matata leaned mightily on the JBs for their groove, and laid out a heavy, rock solid variation on JBs funk with an African percussion base of congas and bongos at the core! ...

✨✧ Black Knight (James Knight & The Butlers)Black Knight ... CD
Cat/Virgorian, Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
An excellent bit of southern funk – very much in the early mode of Little Beaver, but with a sound that's even harder! James Knight is The Black Knight – leading a tight little combo with a raw funky 45 sound, heavy on the horns for backing, but with James' guitar right up front in the ... read more CD

✨✧ Staple SingersUnlock Your Mind ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Darn nice work from The Staple Singers – a record that seems to take the leaner, meaner sound learned by the group during their soundtrack years, and turn it back towards the fuller, more righteous sound of the Stax years! The album was recorded at Muscle Shoals, with very solid production ... read more CD

✨✧ BarrabasHeart Of The City ... CD
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
It must have cost Barrabas plenty to make the heart-shaped manhole on the cover of this album – but given the sound of the grooves, the money was well worth it! The set's a fair bit tighter than their earliest work from Spain – but also a great direction for their styles – one ... read more CD

✨✧ VariousSuper Funk Vol 2 – Rare Funk From Deep In The Crates ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Rare funk from deep in the crates – and deep in the vaults, too – given that some of the tracks are issued here for the first time ever! The collection's a stunner from the folks at Ace Records – a label who've already been digging through the catalogs of rare soul labels for ... (Funky Compilations, Soul) read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Carlos MalcolmBustin Outta The Ghetto ... CD
AJP/BGP (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Funky madness – and one of the greatest funky instrumental albums ever! This one's so rare that only a few funk collectors have it in their collection – but it's a totally massive bit of funk that's way more than just plain "rare" (which can sometimes also mean snoozy for ... read more CD

✨✧ Don JulianSavage! ... CD
Ace (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
One of the greatest blacksploitation soundtracks of the 70s – and one of the rarest too! The album's a crowning achievement for the mighty Don Julian – an artist who's best known for his earlier LA soul with The Larks, but who steps out here with a hip, hard-grooving sound that's ... read more CD

✨✧ FunkadelicFunkadelic Live – Meadowbrook, Rochester, Michigan – 12th September 1971 ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
An insane treat for any fan of the early years of the P-Funk empire – that time when George Clinton and crew were taking in plenty of trippy influences from the heady Detroit scene of the time – and fusing it all into their own really unique blend of soul! The set features the group ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Nolan PorterNo Apologies/Nolan (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Porterville, Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
The only couple of albums by Nolan Porter from the early 70s – unjustly obscure records that combine swampy, funky and rock-oriented soul with more polished touches – and while there are plenty of diverse stylistic twists and turns, Nolan's voice is genuinely soulful throughout! First ... read more CD

Rick JamesStreet Songs ... CD
Motown, 1981. New Copy ... $3.99 9.98
One of the all-time great Rick James albums – a return to funkier sounds for Rick that worked both artistically and commercially – and actually got over far better than his more blatant attempts at crossover material on other records! The mix here is perfect – a true summation of ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Azie MortimerFeeling Of Jazz ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $8.99
The earliest work we've ever seen from Azie Mortimer – a hip album of vocal jazz tracks that predates some of her later soul material! Azie's got a really great style – lean, expressive, and with these great elements that really take her past more conventional jazz vocals – still ... (Vocalists, Soul) read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
VariousBeats & Breaks – Just A Mellow Groove ... CD
Solid (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99
Lots of beats and breaks – and the groove is a lot less mellow than you'd guess from the title! Tracks are pulled from some of the coolest indie labels of the 70s – Brunswick, HDH, and Salsoul – and the focus is on tracks that have lots of heavy drums and sharp changes – of ...

Roy AyersBest Of Roy Ayers – 20th Century Masters The Millennium Collection ... CD
MCA, Late 70s. New Copy ... $3.99 9.98
Fantastic music by one of the all-time greats – easily one of our favorite soul artists of the 70s, and a hell of a jazz musician too! The tracks here are all from Roy Ayers' landmark run at Polydor Records – a place where he turned his straight jazz sound of the 60s into a mix of ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CommodoresCommodores ... CD
Motown, 1977. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Not The Commodores first album – but a really that really broke them out of the box and exposed the group to a huge new audience! The album hits perfectly on both sides of the group's strengths – the tight ensemble funk on which they were raised, and some of the sweeter aspects that ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Etta JamesAt Last (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Argo/Chess, 1960. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
An amazing step forward for the young Etta James – a singer who was delivering a raw, shouting form of R&B just a few years before – but who here ascends into soul music heaven with her famous work on the album! The title cut is the stuff of legend – played and played, again ... read more CD
