TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... About December 18, 2019
A rock-solid groove machine from The JBs – an album that's a bit different than their earlier sides for People Records, yet still pretty wonderful overall! The approach is more club than funk – yet the grooves are still mostly live ensemble playing – kind of a ratcheted-up ... read more CD

Invictus/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About December 18, 2019
The first album by 8th Day – a record with a bit of a complicated pedigree, but a massive amount of 70s Detroit soul as well! The set was supposedly compiled to cash in on the group's hit single "She's Not Just Another Woman" – reportedly recorded by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, ... read more CD

A nicely complicated little record – and one of the funkiest albums on the legendary Invictus label!

TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About December 18, 2019
A sweet set of soundtrack funk – from a film named after one of our favorite streets in Chicago! Although the record's got an approach that's perhaps a bit tighter and smoother than anything going down on Stony in the late 70s, it does manage to share a good deal of styles with the Chi-soul ... read more CD

Tight funky soul from this really great 70s combo – a group with a sound that's much more like the funky 45 underground of the early part of the decade than you might guess from the date of the record!

Nothing too raw here, as the set's from late in the great 80s run of the SOS Band – and shows the group very much at the top of their tight powers!

A killer bit of female soul by a very short-lived group – one with a great sound that comes out of some real criss-crossing of styles – some deep soul currents, but some hipper modern soul touches at the top!
