Hot Wax/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A stone burner from 100 Proof Aged In Soul – a group who really take off with this tight second record! The album's a classic from the days when soul music ruled AM radio on both sides of the tracks – and the rest of the album is equally great – packing that tight post-Motown ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Cameo/London (UK), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Three girls and a guy – and one of the greatest 60s soul groups to ever come out of Philly! Although they started out mostly in a girl group mode, The Orlons soon expanded their sound into a harder range of soul-based work – really picking up steam on the Philly scene, and pushing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OrlonsWah-Watusi ... LP
Cameo, 1963. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A soulful classic from The Orlons – a wonderful vocal group that mixed together the sweet harmonies of three female singers, and one bass-heavy male! The result is a hip take on both girl group soul and some of the male modes of the time – given the way that the lead singer varies on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OsibisaBlack Magic Night – Osibisa Live At The Royal Festival Hall ... LP
Bronze/Trading Places (UK), 1977. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99
A surprisingly strong set from Osibisa – one that's got a full, rich, soulful feel – much better than we might have expected for an album recorded at the Royal Festival Hall! The venue's no surprise, though, given that Osibisa were clearly on top of their game at the time – and ... (Global Grooves, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

OvationsHaving a Party ... LP
MGM, 1973. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A slightly deeper vibe than previous work from The Ovations – but in a great way too! The set begins with the Sam Cooke remake of the title track, but after that things pick up a bit more – using more bass in the backings for a groove, and a bit more keyboards too – not exactly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

OvationsHooked On A Feeling ... LP
MGM, 1972. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Some of the warmest Memphis soul ever recorded – a really classic set from The Ovations, done in a style that's really unique! The vibe here is different from the sound of Stax, as lead singer Louis Williams has a lot of Sam Cooke in his style – a warmly bubbling quality that's as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Frank OwensOliver! Ole! ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Insanely wonderful Latin soul album recorded by Frank Owens that has the surprising (and goofy) bonus of being a Latiny rendition of the hit musical Oliver! Don't be put off by that cockney musical aspect of the source material, though – because the sound here is great New York Latin Soul, ... (Latin, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Parker JrChartbusters ... LP
Arista, 1985. Sealed ... $2.99
A very fitting title – not just because of Ray's big fame for the theme of the film Ghostbusters, but also because Parker was really hitting the charts at the time! The album's something of a compilation – one that features a few moments from earlier in Parker's career, mixed with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Parker JrOther Woman ... LP
Arista, 1982. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Ray Parker steps out here with the other woman – with a groove that's somewhat different than his earlier sound with Raydio! There's a slightly sharper edge than before – almost a rockish influence in some of the instrumentation, which is a key factor in helping Parker's crossover in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Parker JrSex & The Single Man ... LP
Arista, 1985. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Ray Parker's definitely a single man at this point in his career – leaving behind his earlier role in the Raydio group, and working here as writer and producer on a string of 80s hits! The album follows strongly in the catchy, crossover mode of Parker's work from the middle part of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Steve ParksMovin' In The Right Direction ... LP
Solid Smoke/Luv N' Haight, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 25.98
A completely unique little set from singer Steve Parks – a set cut in the Bay Area scene of the early 80s – but done with a righteous 70s vibe that mixes jazz, soul, and bits of Latin influences as well! The overall approach is definitely soul, but there's plenty of jazz inflections in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A funky treasure – finally unleashed!

Fantastic funky orchestral stuff from this great Chicago soul arranger!

One of the best soul records to come out on the Paula label in the early 70s – one with a number of beautifully soulful moments – and a few surprisingly funky ones, too!

Funky Texas soul from the mighty Bobby Patterson – a singer who also recorded for the Jewel/Paula label in the early 70s, but who's heard here on earlier work for Jetstar Records, plus a few never-issued tracks!

A landmark album from Freda Payne!
