✨✧ Marvin GayeI Want You ... LP
Tamla, 1976. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record – quite possibly our favorite ever by Marvin Gaye! The album is quite unique – written by Leon Ware, and recorded in collaboration with him – done as a "suite" of tracks based on themes of passion, joy, and new love – all of which were very ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Late 70s repress. Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Marvin GayeWhat's Going On (gatefold cover) ... LP
Tamla, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Marvin Gaye & Kim WestonTake Two ... LP
Tamla, 1966. Very Good ... $14.99
Beautiful work from Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston – done in a style that's perhaps a bit more intimate, and a bit more sophisticated than some of Marvin's other duets, but still in the great Motown tradition of the 60s! On the set, Weston seems to bring out the sweeter sound of Marvin's voice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 2 Globes pressing. Cover has wear and aging, some stains on front and back, and a name written twice in pen in back. Labels have some pen.)

Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell – definitely all you need, if you're looking for Motown duet work of the 60s!

Tamla, 1969. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic batch of Motown duets from Marvin Gaye and some of his best female co-stars – with a few contributions a piece from Mary Wells, Kim Weston, and Tammi Terrell! Although other artists explored the male/female duet mode back in the 60s, few did it as well as Marvin – thanks in ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thelma HoustonAny Way You Like It ... LP
Tamla, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily 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 LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 80s Motown reissue.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Thelma HoustonReady To Roll ... LP
Tamla, 1978. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock

✨✧ Eddie KendricksBoogie Down! ... LP
Tamla, 1974. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of Eddie's classic dancefloor groovers for Tamla, with production and arrangements by the hit team of Frank Wilson and Leonard Caston!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Eddie KendricksEddie Kendricks ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock

Tamla/Motown, 1977. Sealed ... $13.99
Smooth mellow grooves, in the style that Eddie pioneered, and which he still did better than most. The album's a great batch of tracks with production by Leonard Caston, who also produced some of Eddie's earlier works, and the set's pretty darn great all the way through. With the cuts "Someth ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tamla, Early 60s. Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great rare, early album by The Miracles – one you almost never see on wax!

A classic early Detroit soul record from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Smokey RobinsonBeing With You ... LP
Tamla, 1981. Sealed ... $9.99
A great vehicle for the Smokey Robinson sound in the 80s – and a record that helped Smokey kick off the decade with a really massive hit! "Being With You" still let Smokey stay in an older style of soul-based vocals, without slipping into the adult contemporary sound that would ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed, with a cutout notch.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Smokey RobinsonSmokey ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Sealed Gatefold ... $24.99
Fantastic solo work from Smokey Robinson – recorded a few years before his monumental Quiet Storm album, but with a very similar high level of quality!

✨✧ Smokey RobinsonWarm Thoughts ... LP
Tamla, 1980. Sealed ... 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! The record's surprisingly charming – and has the laidback, mellow-going sort of sound that Robinson first crafted on Quiet Storm – but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesAway We A Go Go ... LP
Tamla, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A key set in the second chapter of Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – that time when the group moved from the mellow ballads that were their first early strength, into some dancefloor stormers that easily made them one of the most favored Motown acts of the time! Smokey definitely takes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Valerie SimpsonExposed ... LP
Tamla, 1971. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A classic early bit of soul from the Ashford & Simpson team – even though the record is billed under the name of Valerie Simpson as a solo act!

(Original UK pressing, in flipback cover!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Valerie SimpsonValerie Simpson ... LP
Tamla, 1972. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Valerie Simpson really shines in the spotlight here, on an early solo outing for Motown – not yet paired with Nick Ashford at a vocal level, but still getting plenty of help from her future musical partner on both production and songwriting! The approach here is sometimes a bit more personal ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie WonderFulfillingness' First Finale ... LP
Tamla, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
A fantastic 70s classic from Stevie Wonder – part of a great run of records in which he broke completely from his earlier Motown sound – and showed the world that he was one of the true musical visionaries of the decade!

Stevie WonderHotter Than July ... LP
Tamla, 1980. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
A bit smoother than early days, but still very nice and soulful – and did we expect any less from Stevie? The record's got a nicely flanged-out soul groove – with a style that kind of expands on the vocal and keyboard production of the early 70s, taking the groove towards a sound that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a small barcode sticker in back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Stevie WonderIn Square Circle ... LP
Tamla, 1985. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mid 80s, and while never that bad (nothing Stevie does is ever terrible – well, except for "Don't Drive Drunk"!), the record lacks that certain greatness that you'll find on even the lesser Stevie Wonder albums. Titles include "Stranger On The Shore Of Love", "Spiritu ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the best Stevie Wonder albums ever! Stevie's moving into god-like territory here – handling a multitude of styles, all well, and crafting some of the most sophisticated soul of his generation.

✨✧ Stevie WonderJourney Through The Secret Life Of Plants ... LP
Tamla, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
