Mercury, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $4.99
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. Given that the group had a big hand in defining the sound and style of mainstream funk in the years ... read more CD

A long-overdue look at one of the greatest 80s groove bands around – the mighty Central Line, one of the few British soul groups to really kick it up back in the day!

Chi-LitesHappy Being Lonely ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Beautiful beautiful work from The Chi-Lites – and a record that we might even say tops the best of their late Brunswick book!

Mercury, 1981. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the sweetest-grooving albums ever from Con Funk Shun – proof that the group was almost better when they tightened things up a bit!

A fantastic early 70s set from Don Covay – probably best known for his 60s hits on Atlantic Records, but really winning us all over again with this smoking set for Mercury! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but isn't just southern soul – as a wealth of 70s influences filter into ... read more CD

Coke EscovedoDisco Fantasy ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Sealed ... $4.99
Not as strong as Coke's earlier work on Mercury – but not a bad album overall, thanks to some tight production work by Pat Gleeson, who's also most likely playing the cool keyboards on the record. Most of the tunes are aimed at the dancefloor – not really disco numbers, but the sort of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An overlooked gem from the 80s years of Fela Kuti – and a set that has the Afro Funk genius working with strong studio help from Wally Badarou!

Sex, soul, and lots more too – a sublime solo set from the great Roy C Hammond – recorded after his initial work with The Honeydrippers! The approach here is much more deep soul than his work with that group – very much in the best sort of Fame or Hi Records vibe – with a ... read more CD

Uni/Mercury, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 24.99
Great stuff – the beginning of the Love Unlimited dynasty! As we're sure you know, Barry White produced this little gem of a record, and the album was a key proving ground for many of his stone cold soul production ideas before he went off and started doing the lead vocals himself.

Mercury/Culture Factory, 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Maybe the last great album in the Ohio Players run for Mercury in the mid 70s – a set that's every bit as smooth, sexy, and funky as their other major label efforts from the time – and one that continued to refine the grittier funk of their roots!

Mercury, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
A well-titled set – as it's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold!

Great work from the Ohio Players – and proof that moving to a big label could be a good thing for a funky group!
