✨✧ SpinnersBest Of The Spinners (Atlantic) (180 gram translucent gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Friday Music, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from the second chapter of The Spinners – the moment when the group departed Motown, moved to Atlantic, and got some superb Philly soul treatment at the hands of Thom Bell! Unlike some groups, who maybe sounded best with a Detroit touch, it took the sophisticated Philly arrangements and production of Bell to really set The Spinners free – as they hit the heights with singles one after another during this early Atlantic run, most of which are featured here on selections from 1973 and 1974. There's a joyous groove that fits the groups harmonies wonderfully – as you'll hear here on this all-hit set of tracks that virtually defines the sound of AM radio soul. Titles include "One Of A Kind (Love Affair)", "Ghetto Child", "I'll Be Around", "Then Came You", "How Could I Let You Get Away", "They Just Can't Stop It", "Mighty Love", "Sadie", "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love", and "Rubberband Man".

Archie Bell & The DrellsTighten Up ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
An incredible bit of southern funk – the first landmark LP by Archie Bell & The Drells, and the first big burst of energy from the Texas scene of the 60s! The album's incredible – with Archie up front on rough-hewn vocals, the band grooving in a mad tangle of guitar, bass, and drums, and some super-fierce horn work by the TSU Tornadoes! You've no doubt heard the band's classic "Tighten Up (part 1)", but this album also includes the incredible "part 2" to the track – which takes the groove a million miles higher! And the whole album's equally great – filled with other tight soul gems that include "A Thousand Wonders", "I Don't Want To Be A Playboy", "Give Me Time", and "When You Left Heartache Began".

DriftersDrifters' Golden Hits (180 gram mono pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
The golden hits of The Drifters, but a set that mostly features on the group's great second chapter at Atlantic Records – a time when original singer Clyde McPhatter had left the group, and Ben E King and Rudy Lewis came in with a very different style in the lead! Lieber & Stoller were strongly behind the group at this point, really making magic with the rhythms of the tunes too – those unusual rhythms that really set the early 60s Drifters apart from the pack – as you'll hear on cuts that include "There Goes My Baby", "(If You Cry) True Love, True Love", "Dance With Me", "This Magic Moment", "Save The Last Dance For Me", "I Count The Tears", "Some Kind Of Wonderful", "Up On The Roof", "On Broadway","Under The Boardwalk", "I've Got Sand In My Shoes", and "Saturday Night At The Movies".

✨✧ Aretha FranklinOh Me Oh My – Aretha Live In Philly 1972 (orange & yellow vinyl pressing) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a live performance from Aretha Franklin – recorded at the NATRA convention in Philly in 1972, and issued here for the first time ever! The setting is a bit more intimate than the usual Franklin gig of the time, and the feel is a bit more mature as well – showing that new level of sophistication that Aretha was hitting in her studio sets for Atlantic at the time, undercurrents of jazz mixed in with the soul – in ways that really update and change over some of the more familiar tunes in the performance. The backing group feels somewhat large, but has more than enough grit to keep things going – and the sound quality is surprisingly great, considering that these tapes sat up on a shelf in the Atlantic vaults for over 30 years. Titles include "April Fools", "Spanish Harlem", "Day Dreaming/Think", "This Girl's In Love With You", "2001/Rock Steady", "Young Gifted & Black", "Oh Me Oh My", "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "Respect", and "Chain Of Fools/See Saw".

✨✧ Aretha FranklinYoung, Gifted, & Black (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A beautiful album that perfectly mixes both sides of Aretha Franklin's talents – the hard-edged soul singer who first flourished at Atlantic records in the late 60s, and the artist who was growing even more as a vocalist – really reaching out her wings to more sophisticated material! There's a balance here that makes the record one of the deepest that Franklin ever recorded for Atlantic – lots of larger Arif Mardin touches, but also some raw moments that really round things out – on titles that include Aretha's classic take on the Weldon Irvine/Nina Simone tune "Young Gifted & Black", the funky classic "Rock Steady", the wonderful mellow groover "Day Dreaming", the hit "Brand New Me", and the strangely compelling "First Snow In Kokomo" – plus other titles that include "All The King's Horses", "Oh Me Oh My", "Border Song", "Didn't I Blow Your Mind", "April Fools", "I've Been Loving You Too Long", and "The Long & Winding Road".

✨✧ Bettye Lavette1972 Muscle Shoals Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Atco/Run Out Groove, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Deep deep deep soul from one of the all-time greats – and the first time that most of these tracks have ever been issued on vinyl! Betty Lavette is one of the greatest almost-rans in female soul – a hard-hitting vocalist with a really tremendous sound, and a history of recordings scattered across some of the best indie soul labels of the 60s and 70s – finally getting her due many years later. Betty initially recorded for Atlantic records in the early 60s – cutting some great tracks in a tight Detroit soul mode – but then later returned to the label a decade later, recording a full album's worth of heavy soul tracks with Brad Shapiro in Muscle Shoals. 2 of these tracks were issued as a single, but the rest of the work was never issued at the time – very surprising, since the record would have easily knocked both Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner out of the water! Titles include "Outside Woman", "The Stealer", "Ain't Nothing Gonna Change Me", "All The Black & White Children", "Our Own Love Song", "Soul Tambourine", "It Ain't Easy", "Fortune Teller", and "Your Turn To Cry". The LP also features two more tracks recorded in Detroit – "Heart Of Gold" and "You'll Wake Up Wiser". LP, Vinyl record album

LizzoCuz I Love You ... LP
Atlantic, 2019. New Copy ... $21.99 23.98
The breakout record from Lizzo – a set that's even more musically striking than its instantly-iconic cover image! The record bristles with an energized take on contemporary R&B, mixed with just the right dose of hip hop – and although Missy Elliott guests on one track, Lizzo's clearly showing the world that she's ready to take the mantle from the queen, with a much more honest, upfront songwriting approach – on titles that include "Boys", "Lingerie", "Heaven Help Me", "Exactly How I Feel", "Tempo", "Crybaby", "Soulmate", "Like A Girl", and "Cuz I Live You".

Eugene McDanielsHeadless Heroes Of The Apocalypse (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A monster album that's gone onto influence a generation – but which was barely recognized at the time! Singer Eugene McDaniels had scored big with some pop hits in the 60s under the name Gene McDaniels – but here, he steps out in a righteous batch of offbeat funk tunes – filled with politics, offbeat rhythms, and some very weird instrumentation. The whole thing's awash in moody, jazzy changes – of the style that showed up often in samples by Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, and other artists who drew keen inspiration from this record. Titles include the massive "Jagger the Dagger" – plus "The Lord Is Back", "Lovin Man", "Headless Heroes", "Freedom Death Dance", and "Supermarket Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wilson PickettBest Of Wilson Pickett (180 gram translucent gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Friday Music, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Hard heavy soul from The Wicked Pickett – and virtually a blueprint for the heavier sound of Muscle Shoals to come – as Wilson Pickett was to that soul scene what Otis Redding had been to the Memphis world of Stax Records! These aren't Wilson's first recordings – but as with Aretha Franklin at Atlantic, the singer really found a way to focus his talents and come on strong – with a hard-biting sound that made him one of the leading lights of the label during the second half of the 60s! Rick Hall and Tom Dowd produced the material, and tracks include classics like "Mustang Sally", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Funky Broadway", "Soul Dance Number Three", "It's Too Late", "I Found A Love", "634-5789", "If You Need Me", "Don't Fight It", "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love", "Ninety-Nine & A Half Won't Do" and "In The Midnight Hour".

Barbara BrownGot To Be Somebody – The XL Sessions – 60s Memphis Gold ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A great full length collection of work by Memphis singer Barbara Brown – a vocalist who appeared both as a solo act, and with her sisters – on a variety of singles for labels like Cadet, Atlantic, Tower, and MGM in the late 60s and early 70s! Barbara's got a deep, rich voice that's clearly schooled in gospel, but pointed towards more secular ends – an approach that's very much in keeping with the best late 60s wave of soul from Atlantic Records, and which is carried off here with a sharpness and precision that's simply mindblowing! Why Brown never scored bigger is a real mystery to us, because these tunes come off like the cream of the crop of southern soul at the end of the 60s – not just obscurities for obscurity sake, but some of the highest level of soul a female soul singer could hope for at the time! Titles include "Can't Find No Happiness", "Plenty Of Room", "A Great Big Thing", "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Man Around The House", "Play Thing", "I'm Gonna Start A War", "I Don't Want To Have To Wait", "It Hurts Me So Much", "Got To Be Somebody", "There's A Look On Your Face", and "If I Can't Run To You I'll Crawl".

✨✧ Dr JohnAnytime Anyplace (plus bonus tracks) ... LP
Barometer/Lilith (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... About August 27, 2021
❔
One of the rarer ones from the great Dr John – issued in the mid 70s – with a sound that hearkens back a bit to even more of a slinky New Orleans soul sound than some of the Dr's more messed-up work for Atlantic at the time! The album features originals like "Shoo Ra", "Woman Is The Root Of All Evil", and "She's Just A Square" – plus the great funky tune "One Night Late", and the tracks "In The Night", "Bald Headed", and "Mean Cheatin Woman". This Lilith edition also features 6 bonus tracks, making for a discovery that's even more wonderful – and those include "A Little Closer To Home", "Go Ahead On", "Mama Roux", "The Ear Is On Strike" and more.

✨✧ Johnny JenkinsTon-Ton Macoute! (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Atco/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of raw funky southern soul from Johnny Jenkins – recorded in Macon, GA, and one of the last relics of the relations that Atlantic Records had with all of the little local scenes in the south! Ton-Ton Macoute is one of those records that manages to blend funk, blues, and southern rock & soul way, way better than so many pretenders from the time – just a damn near perfectly realized set ! Johnny Jenkins sings, stomps, plays guitar and blows harp (with some extra help from Duane Allman on the guitar front), and he runs through tracks like "Blind Bats & Swamp Rats", "Sick & Tired", "Voodoo In You", "Rollin' Stone", "Bad News", "Down Along The Cove", and the absolute classic, classic breakbeat track "I Walk On Guilded Splinters". Features the bonus tracks "My Love Will Never Die" and "I Don't Want No Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsSoul Of A Woman (with download) ... LP
Daptone, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The fantastic final album from Sharon Jones – a wonderfully deep talent who was taken from us all too soon! The set's maybe the ultimate setting for Sharon's incredible voice – as it features both her longtime core combo, the Dap-Kings – as well as additional backings from the Bushwick Philharmonic – a small ensemble of strings who really help elevate the music to classic status! If you're worried that the strings might soften the sound, the very first note of the record will put your mind at rest – as will the heavy drums that mark just about every track, and keep things hard and funky throughout. If anyone ever doubted that the Daptone label was our modern equivalent of Stax Records or Atlantic, this will certainly be the set to change their mind – and will also stand forever as a bittersweet reminder of all the greatness that Sharon Jones gave us over the years. Titles include "Searching For A New Day", "Rumors", "Matter Of Time", "Sail On", "Just Give Me Your Time", "Come & Be A Winner", "Call On God", and "These Tears".

Rasputin's StashStash (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Family Groove, 1976. New Copy ... $25.99
Never-heard music from the legendary Rasputin's Stash – a funk group who recorded famously on Atlantic and Curtom in the early 70s, then created this gem of an album that appears here for the first time ever! The quality of the work is fantastic, and even seems better than their Curtom album – as they're still as gritty and funk as before, but have this more complex sense of interplay – both in their instrumentation, and in their vocals, which are filled with all these cool harmonic twists and turns – as if The Notations had teamed up with Curtis Mayfield, to create one of the greatest Chicago funk albums of all time! The group produced the whole thing themselves – and although this one never made it to the history book, it's going right to the top of our list of 70s funk classics. Titles include "Make Up Your Mind", "Tarantula", "Children Of The Lord", "Cool When You Don't Know It", "Paradise", "You've Got To Face It", and "TLC". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Ike Turner's greatest albums ever – recorded for the Pompeii Subsidiary of Atlantic, and featuring some raw tunes that have more than a bit of funk in them! The album includes 2 killer instrumentals – "Thinking Black" and "Black Beauty" – both of which you'd be proud to own as funky 45s! Other tracks feature some hard soul vocals by Tina – and titles include "You Got What You Wanted", "So Blue Over You", "Cussin, Cryin, & Carryin On", "Make Em Wait", "I Better Get Ta Steppin", and "I'm Fed Up".

✨✧ VariousStax Of Funk – The Funky Truth ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 26.99
Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really started getting down and dirty, and hitting on all burners in the funk department. This tasty set features 21 tracks from those exiting years –many of them only ever issued on singles, and a few of them by some of the label's more famous LP artists – but all of them with a nice Memphis funky groove! Titles include "Turn Your Damper Down" by Rufus Thomas, "Broadway Freeze" by Harvey Scales, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Dryer" by Roy Lee Johnson, "She's My Old Lady Too" by Lee Sain, "Slipped & Tripped" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Brothers & Sisters" by Kim Weston, "Movin Dancer" by Bobby Holley, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "A Man Never Knows" by Chris & Shack, "Grab A Handful" by Art Jerry Miller, "I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)" by Hot Sauce, "Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone" by Inez Foxx, "Sock Soul" by The Bar Kays, and "Getting Funky Round Here" by Black Nasty!

VariousSuper Breaks 3 – Essential Funk, Soul & Jazz Samples and Breakbeats ... LP
BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 26.99
More funky breaks than Evel Knevel after the Snake River Canyon jump! The groove hounds at BGP records were set loose on the Ace catalog – which includes holdings from Atlantic, Stax, Volt, Westbound, and other funky classic labels – and they managed to come up with a killer batch of funky cuts, even though this is their 3rd dip into the crates! If anything, perhaps they dipped even deeper this time – especially as some of the once-trusted sources for breaks, like the famous Ultimate Breaks & Beats series, are now disappearing from the market. Titles include "Soul Pad" by The Coasters, "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Nappy Dugout" by Funkadelic, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by The Mad Lads, "The Rose" by 50 Foot Hose, "Holy Ghost" by The Bar Kays, "No Strings Attached" by The Mad Lads, "After Laughter Comes Tears" by Wendy Rene, "River's Invitation" by Freddie Robinson, "This House Is Smokin" by BT Express, "Music Man (parts 1 & 2)" by Pleasure Web, and "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" by David Porter.
