Kiki DeeGreat Expectations ... LP
Tamla, 1970. Very Good ... $29.99
One of the greatest blue-eyed soul albums ever on Motown – featuring early work by British singer Kiki Dee, better known for her later hit with Elton John!

Yvonne FairBitch Is Black ... CD
Tamla (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
Heavy heavy funk from the mighty Yvonne Fair – a 70s bad soul sister that we'd rank right up there with Betty Davis! Yvonne got her start working with James Brown in a sweeter mode, but by the time of this mid 70s debut, she'd hit a really hard-wailing sort of style – one that had the ... read more CD

Marvin GayeI Heard It Through The Grapevine (aka In The Groove) ... LP
Tamla, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 19.99
Marvin's definitely in the groove on this set – cooking on all burners with a host of late 60s Motown hits – bad-stepping his way towards some of the more mature moments to come in the 70s! The album's probably best remembered for the cut "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Marvin GayeWhat's Going On (80s pressing) ... LP
Tamla/Motown, 1971. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic soul duets between Marvin & Tammi Terrell – a landmark pair in 60s soul music, and easily one of the best male/female duos in pop music ever! Marvin and Tammi have a way of singing together that makes you feel like they're speaking the tunes, not singing them – a personal ... read more CD

✨✧ Brenda HollowayEvery Little Bit Hurts ... LP
Tamla/Motown, 1964. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic heartbreaking soul from Brenda Holloway – one of the weepiest early records on Motown, as you might guess from the title! The style here is almost more New York uptown than Detroit at times – a fair bit like Maxine Brown with its mix of strength and fragility on the vocals, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thelma HoustonAny Way You Like It (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tamla/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Smoking Motown work from Thelma Houston – a great 70s set that catches the singer at the top of her groove! The album's polished, but never in a too-commercial way – and the grooves acknowledge the growing role of the dancefloor in mainstream soul, yet also mostly stay away from some ... read more CD

Thelma HoustonRide To The Rainbow ... LP
Tamla, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A bold little set from Thelma Houston – produced with a strong disco finish, in a way that makes the best of her fierce diva vocals!

Tamla/LMLR (France), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
The first solo album that Eddie Kendricks cut after leaving The Temptations – and a great one! Motown genius Frank Wilson produced the whole album, and it's got a really unified feel that you don't always get on Motown albums – possibly proof that the label was really invested in ... read more CD

Smokey RobinsonBeing With You ... LP
Tamla, 1981. Near Mint- ... $6.99

Tamla, 1980. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Warm thoughts, and equally warm vocals – thanks to the legendary Smokey Robinson, who's still sounding great here at the start of the 80s!

Tamla, 1965. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real Motown obscurity – an early album from Willie Tyler and Lester, easily one of the hippest ventriloquism acts to ever hit the stage!
