Black GrassBlack Grass (Shelter) ... LP
Shelter, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
A very gospel-influenced soul album – with a righteous heavy soul sound that features loads of piano triplets and soulful female vocals. Leon Russell produced some of the material, and he also plays piano on a number of tracks on the set – which came out on his own Shelter label. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Black HeatKeep On Runnin' ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good ... $16.99
The third album from Black Heat – and quite possibly the funkiest of the bunch – thanks to an even tighter sound than before, and lots of emphasis on the bottom of the groove! The group's got a few more members than before, but their sound is somehow even leaner – a really tight ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Black MerdaBlack Merda ... LP
Cadet/Lilith (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Heavy duty fuzzy funk – and a landmark album from one of the most Hendrix-inspired groups of the early 70s! The style here is guitar funk with plenty of rock thrown in – all really fuzzed-up in production, and often a bit distorted – so that the group are kind of a lost link ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BlackbyrdsNight Grooves ... LP
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A great album of funky dancefloor tunes! Originally issued in 1978, and clearly for the New York dancefloor crowd – the record takes the earlier work of funk group The Blackbyrds, and remixes the tracks slightly to pump up the groove a bit for the dancers. While the approach might not sound ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sound Town, 1983. Sealed ... $3.99
Later material cut by this great singer from the Soul Children.

Writing is by Betty Crutcher, Homer Banks, and Chuck Brooks – and in a way, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Uptown/MCA, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The landmark debut of Mary J Blige – a record that not only did a great job of blending underground hip hop and mainstream soul sensibilities – but maybe also opened the door for the Neo Soul revolution to come! Mary comes on here with a fresh new vision in female soul – one that' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Peggie BlueI Got Love ... LP
MCA, 1980. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Peggie's definitely got love on this sparkling debut – but even better than that, she's got Jerry Ragovoy helping out on production, arrangement, and composition for most of the tunes – a top-shelf professional approach that makes the whole album sound a lot richer and more unified than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue NotesTruth Has Come To Light ... LP
Glades, 1977. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A strange but great chapter of The Blue Notes – working here without Harold Melvin or Teddy Pendergrass, but still sounding pretty great on their own!

Sussex, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Incredible work by Willie Bobo – a slamming record of hard funky instrumentals, one that sounds different than any of his other albums!

Angela BofillSomething About You ... LP
Arista, 1981. Very Good ... $3.99
A soaring classic from Angie Bofil – a record that stands as one of the most perfect demonstrations of her upbeat, positive approach to soul!

BohannonDance Your Ass Off ... LP
Dakar, 1976. Very Good+ ... $8.99

BohannonInsides Out ... LP
Dakar, 1974. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual!

ABC, 1975. Near Mint- ... $18.99
We've got to admit, we don't know much about Angelo Bond, but we've always had kind of a soft spot for this nice overlooked album of 70s soul tracks recorded for ABC.

A great little set from New Orleans legend James Booker – a previously unissued session from 1973 – recorded in LA with a great array of well-matched players!

Booker TEvergreen ... LP
Epic, 1974. Near Mint- ... $19.99

Booker T & PriscillaHome Grown ... LP
A&M, 1972. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Much mellower than the previous duet effort from Booker T & Priscilla Jones – a set that almost echoes Book's Memphis roots, but in ways that are different than the familiar soul of Stax!
