Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Seminal early funk work from Roy Ayers! The record catches him at that perfect point when he was turning from a straight jazz player into a sinister force in 70s funk – and the group on the session includes super-hip soul jazz giants like Charles Tolliver, Sonny Fortune, and Harry Whitaker, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersVibrations ... LP
Polydor, 1976. Very Good ... $14.99
One of Roy Ayers' greatest albums of the 70s – a set that tightens up the groove from previous Polydor productions, yet still keeps all the soul intact! The record picks up the style begun with the Mystic Voyage album, and pushes it to some slightly tighter territory – a more focused ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersVirgo Red ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good ... $24.99
A great little album from Roy Ayers – a very funky record that's almost all instrumental all the way through! The sound is a bit in the vein of Roy's Live At Montreux set – but funkier overall, thanks to some very heavy rhythms on the bottom – and an approach to the tunes that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersYou Might Be Surprised ... LP
Columbia, 1985. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Roy Ayers in a tight mid 80s funk mode – commanding a modern vibe really well, especially with his vibes so prominent in the sound!

AzotoDisco Fizz ... LP
Rams Horn/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
An intriguing bit of Italian disco – one that has some of the sweet porno touches of the genre's earliest years, but which also picks up some of the more interesting progressive elements that started to surface in the early 80s!

Baby RayWhere Soul Lives ... LP
Imperial, 1967. Sealed ... $6.99
Obscure bluesy soul, recorded for Imperial, but sounding more like something that should have been on their Minit subsidiary. Oddly, there's no picture of Baby Ray on the cover, leaving us to find him even more mysterious than before – especially since we've never seen any other records by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1984. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A big breakthrough for Philip Bailey – and a record that was kind of a second-level explosion for the Earth Wind & Fire sound in the 80s!

Columbia, 1983. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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.

One of the few rare albums on the Maple label – a 70s imprint that's known for some incredible funk and soul!

Folkways, 1966. Very Good ... $24.99
A weird little album from the Folkways label – one that features a bunch of 50s-sounding R&B tracks, but packaged almost in an ethnographic style – as if commercial American music was being examined from an outside scientific source!

Atco, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
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.

It must have cost Barrabas plenty to make the heart-shaped manhole on the cover of this album – but given the sound of the grooves, the money was well worth it!
