Capitol/EMI, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label.

TKO Magnum (UK), 1970. Used ... $8.99
The album, Minnie Riperton's first, is sort of an arch-baroque suite of floating shimmering soulful tracks that get this crazy over the top Bacharach & David production from our favorite arranger of all time – Charles Stepney.

Great work from the second chapter of Grover Washington's career – his post-Kudu run over at Elektra Records!

Columbia, 1987. Used ... $6.99
A classic post-Prince project from the team of Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman – work that builds off the funky pop sensibility they first forged with the purple one, but which comes across a bit more mainstream overall!

Curtom/Blixa Sounds, 1979. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Linda Clifford goes a bit over the top with this one – a lavish double-length set, of the sort that ended up bankrupting the Curtom label during the late 70s!

Nobody's got a voice like Macy Gray – a hugely distinct singer who's always had her own way forward in music!
