Bar-KaysInjoy (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Hip-O Select, 1979. Used ... $14.99
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!

Mercury/Universal, 1959. Used ... $6.99
Overlooked genius from Brook Benton – moving past his simple hit style here to work with arranger Belford Hendricks in a set of tunes that's a bit more "singerly". The tracks are mostly ballads and slower, sadder numbers – sung by Brook in a style that's slightly emotive, but ... read more CD

Amazing soul from one of the greats of the 60s!

Super-sharp work from Con Funk Shun – one of the best of the mainstream funk acts to emerge in the second half of the 70s – working with the sort of style that was trained in the funky 45 underground, then given a bigger, fuller push to album-length glory!
