Mercury, 1975. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
One of the biggest albums ever for Ohio Players – a set that took their earlier funk sound and targeted firmly at the mainstream with a lean, mean groove that a million other groups copied at the time!

Ohio PlayersMr Mean ... CD
Mercury, 1977. Used ... $9.99
A lesser-known 70s album by The Ohio Players – tunes recorded for the soundtrack of the late blacksploitation film Mr Mean, but also very much in the tight funk format of the group's Mercury work!

One of the many obscure albums of material by The Ohio Players – material that was recorded in the late 60's by Capitol, but frequently repackaged and retitled in the early 70's to cash in on the big hit status of the band.

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

The most righteous album ever from Kellee Patterson – her first record, and a set that's way different from her more soul-based sides of later years!

Cyril PaulBrown Baby ... LP
Mar-Bon, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A weird one, but pretty compelling. Cyril Paul is an African American folk singer – less in the mode of jazz/soul folkies like Terry Callier or Oscar Brown, than in the style of the New York/Boston new traditionalists of the early 60s. At most levels, the album's a straight folk one – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chrysalis, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $3.99
The mid 80s... when a song like this passed for politics in music! Forget the stupid message lyrics, though, and remember that Hardcastle cracked a lot of scenes with the cut – forging kind of a pop-political-street beat kind of groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
