An album that's every bit as great as you'd guess from the cover and the title – a hip set recorded on the Philly scene of the 70s, and this wonderful blend of jazz, soul, and plenty of percussion! Malaku Thompson plays the drums, but there's also plenty of other percussion on the record ... (Jazz, Soul)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The fantastic first album from Exile One – a group who recorded more mainstream work in Paris later in their career – but who really sound fierce and funky here right at the start! The sound is lean, stripped-down, and a lot more aimed towards American soul than you'd guess from their ... (Global Grooves, Soul)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Mellow soul, sweeping strings, and sweet electric keys – a stone 70s classic from Norman Feels – one of the greatest soul singers you've never heard before! The album's Norman's first (of two), and is a vastly under-recognized gem – the kind of record that easily stands next to ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Genius work from Norman Feels – a virtually unknown mellow soul singer from the 70s, but one who should have been huge! Norman sings with this sweetly crackling style that we loved the moment we first heard it – a sound that's somewhere in territory covered by Marvin Gaye or Leroy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Maybe the greatest moment ever from Clarence "Fuzzy" Haskins – a key part of the George Clinton P-Funk universe in the 70s – finally getting a chance to step out on his own! Haskins arranged and produced the set – with a bit of arranging help from Bernie Worrell – ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
If you only know Loleatta Holloway as a disco singer, you'll be really amazed at this debut album from 1973 – because Loleatta emerges first as deep soul singer with a strong southern vibe – very much in the mode the Atlanta scene did best, before picking up the pace a bit more as the ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
King Hannibal —
Truth ... LP Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mad funky soul from King Hannibal – a down and dirty singer from the Atlanta scene of the 70s! The notes on the back say "He's black, he's proud, he's arrogant – the combination is powerful" – and we've gotta say that we agree with that assessment, because King really ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An obscure set from Azar Lawrence – self-produced and self-arranged, in a smooth modern soul mode that's kind of an 80s extension of his work in the 70s for Prestige. There's a definite R&B groove on most tracks, and vocalist Coco Evans sings on 2 of the album's 8 tracks. Lawrence is on ... (Jazz, Soul)read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Funky soul, but with deeper roots too – a killer set from Matata – a group from Kenya, but one who arrived on the London scene in the 70s – where their blend of African roots and American soul really took the group by storm! There's a fantastic influence here from James Brown ... (Global Grooves, Soul)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A soul record, but one with a fair bit of "something else" going on as well – and a set that was originally only issued on cassette, which might be why it was missed the first time around! Antonio L Newton, aka Tony Newton, has a long legacy in soul music – including work ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A late rare gem from southern soul genius Bobby Patterson – the Texas talent who's best known for his work of the late 60s and early 70s, but who's featured here on a self-released album from the start of the 80s! The approach is a bit like the shift that Malaco Records was making in ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wild one! After the straight hard funk of some of his earlier recordings as a leader, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie breaks out here in a compelling album of soul jazz tracks done in a number of styles. The approach is sort of big studio funk – with some cuts that have a harder sound, ... (Jazz, Soul)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A key album in the post-Hendrix tradition of funky black rock – and the only album ever recorded by Cleveland's Purple Image! The approach here follows nicely in the same territory worked by Funkadelic and Fugi in the early days – a heady, fuzzed-up blend of trippy guitars, heavy ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the most unique soundtracks of the blacksploitation generation – but maybe that's also because the film Lord Shango was also somewhat different than most – a hipper, more creative movie that took on a number of themes, which are all echoed by Howard Roberts in his music! This ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A very rare evening indeed – a sweet little live set recorded by Nina Simone during her soulful height at RCA – but issued years after that time, and only briefly on a small indie label! The setting here is wonderful – a small combo in the background with the great Weldon Irvine ... (Vocalists, Soul)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare funky gem from this obscure Florida group – a combo with roots in the more-famous Winstons – that legendary group who gave the world "Amen Brother" at the end of the 60s! The work here is equally funky, but in a different sort of way – tight 70s ensemble funk, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The only album ever issued by Sylk – a southern group with a sound that's tight, but never too slick – nicely indie from production to conception, and very different than other mainstream soul records from the time! The record's part of the great underground tradition of homegrown soul ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Bubbha Thomas —
Life & Times ... LP Lightnin/Tidal Waves, 1985. New Copy (reissue)...
An obscure later set from Texas legend Bubbha Thomas – a drummer you'll know from his work with the legendary Lightmen group in the 70s – working here in an 80s-styled extrapolation of some of the ideas from that previous combo! The music is much leaner than before – heavy on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An obscure bit of heavy soul – and the only vocal album on the jazz-based Eastbound imprint of Detroit's legendary Westbound Records! Albert's a blues artist, and sings in a soulful electric style that's similar to some of the Stax work of Albert King – but which has a bit more of a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
