ABC/MCA, 1971. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
BB King live at the Cook County Jail in Chicago – and given the amount of great live shows going on in the institution during the early 70s, the jail must have been one hell of a place to be incarcerated!

Chess, 1960. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Muddy Waters makes a classic appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival – playing a folksy set of blues in the years before the festival had turned more strongly towards that sort of music!

Polydor, 1970. New Copy ... $3.99 9.98
James Brown cooking it live – recorded (as the cover says) "at home in Augusta, Georgia with his bad self"! The groove here is a nice extension of earlier Apollo modes – one that shows the increasing funkiness of the James Brown Band, captured with a raw power that few other ... 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

HeatwaveCentral Heating ... CD
Epic, 1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The second album by Heatwave – and a great effort that's almost as perfectly sublime as the first!

Adrian Younge with Venice DawnSomething About April II ... CD
Linear Labs, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98

Like the first record, this one ... (Deep Funk, Soul) read more CD

WarAll Day Music ... CD
United Artists/Avenue, 1971. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all ... read more CD

Geffen/Chess, 1960. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album!

Mercury, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $3.99 5.98
Late Bar-Kays – when the group were getting the "rock" out of their grooves, hitting the bass a lot heavier than before, and opening up in that slicker funkier style of the late 70s.

One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever – and also one of his deepest, too!
