AuraAura ... LP
Mercury, Mid 70s. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
Is this the same group that went onto become Aurra and record disco records for Salsoul? We don't think so, but folks tell it that it is.

Late Bar-Kays – when the group were getting the "rock" out of their grooves, hitting the bass a lot heavier than before, and opening up in that slicker funkier style of the late 70s.

David OliverDavid Oliver (aka Jamerican Man) ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of David's smooth soul albums for Mercury, with jazzy production by Wayne Henderson that's in line with the best work he was doing at the time.

Esther PhillipsHere's Esther – Are You Ready ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A sweet groover from Esther Phillips – done in a style that's much more club-oriented than before, but which we find ourselves liking quite a lot!
