We always think that it's unusual that after years and years of success in the early 70s with strong single solo artists, Motown really seemed to bank its hope for the 80s on a group soul sound that was part funk, part dancefloor, and part harmony soul.

Patryce Choc'let BanksShe's Back & Ready ... LP
T-Electric, 1980. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A nice album of smooth sophisticated soul tracks from Patryce Banks, a singer who'd worked with Graham Central Station during their classic years, and who also guested a bit on jazz sides during the 70s. Patryce has a voice that's leaning towards the Minnie Riperton camp – a heavenly sweet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ron BanksTruly Bad ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the original Dramatics, singer Ron Banks strikes out here on his own – a slept on gem from the early 80s! The set's in a similar modern soul mode to LJ Reynolds, who also worked with him in the group, and was having a bit of a solo career of his own at the time. It's got sort of a D-T ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bar-KaysAs One ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The Bar-Kays definitely groove as one on this tight little set – with amazing choppy guitar, bumping basslines, and brassy horns – all wrapped up with some wonderfully warm production! The group have come a long way from their fuzzier funk roots by this time, but they're still sounding ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bar-KaysBlack Rock ... LP
Volt, 1971. Very Good ... $19.99
An album that's every bit as great as the title might imply – heavy guitar-based funk from the second version of The Bar-Kays – one that uses the new instrumental focus to push a groove that's much more black rock than before! There's still a bit of trumpet from the past, but the sound ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has split seams and surface wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bar-KaysDo You See What I See? ... LP
Volt, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A tasty bit of political funk by one of the best groups on Stax! The record's got that heavy guitar-driven funk sound that was the group's calling card at the time – but it's also infused with a righteous sense of social consciousness, clearly influenced by Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bar-KaysInjoy ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Later Bar-Kays at their best – still plenty funky, but also working in a smoothly soulful style that became the group's trademark sound at Mercury! The album's got a real bass-heavy appeal from the start – working in a mode that shares a lot with Cameo, The Gap Band, and some of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bar-KaysMoney Talks ... LP
Stax, 1978. Very Good ... $5.99
The Bar-Kays' last album for Stax – most likely recorded in earlier years – and a surprisingly funky set that still holds onto the group of the group's earlier 70s work, while also pointing the way towards the future! The overall sound isn't nearly as slick as in the Mercury years, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Maple/Remined, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
One of the few rare albums on the Maple label – a 70s imprint that's known for some incredible funk and soul! Despite the title, the set's a record that sounds a lot more down-home than uptown – thanks to hard-wailing vocals from Gloria Barnes herself, and a nicely rough-edged quality ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BarrabasBarrabas ... LP
Atco, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Although Barrabas began their career mostly as a soulful rock band, by this album, they're sort of heading in an uptempo funky club style – not really funk, or disco, but kind of an early blend of both, along with some of their older rock leanings. The record includes the funky tracks "S ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BarrabasPower (blue cover) ... LP
RCA, 1973. Sealed ... $19.99
Funky rocking sounds from this hip Spanish group – with a bit of a tribal sound that's pretty sweet! The bass is pretty thundering, the drums are strong, and there's some cool piano and flute in the mix that give the cuts a bit of a Latin flourish. Most cuts have vocals, kind of in a rock-so ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A couple of the biggest, funkiest early 70s jams by legendary Spanish combo Barrabas – masters at a wild mix of funk, soul, and rock at this early point – with a raw, percussion heavy grit underneath soulful vocal and funky rhythms!

CBS, 1978. Very Good+ ... $1.99

Not the famous "Ling Ching Tong" tune of doo wop fame, but a new track by Joe from his Latin disco years.

The last true classic from the masters of the 80s groove genre – a post-Capitol effort for Elektra, but one that's still awash in great keyboards and snapping electro beats!

A wonderful disco groover, reissued by Next Plateau in the 80s, but originally recorded for Motown in 1977 by Carl Bean, who we think never got a chance to issue a full album for the label!

Philadelphia International, 1977. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the strong Philly LPs by Archie Bell and the Drells (and they really did make the transition to Philly pretty well).
