Boz ScaggsSilk Degrees ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Blue-eyed soul from Boz Scaggs, with a decidedly Philly influenced sound to the production, which we'd hazard a guess comes more from the Hall & Oates side of town than the Sigma Sound axis. Still, this is a solid album with the irresistible hit "Lowdown", still a favorite around ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TSG/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99
The debut album from Cynthia Schloss – a reggae singer who'd go on to bring a whole new level of soul to Jamaican music!

Gil Scott-Heron's first album – and his angriest! Unlike some of Gil's other albums – which have a sweet jazzy vibe and a mix of mellow soul styles – this one's a lot rawer, and features Gil rapping loud over very heavy percussion backing. All the work is his own, and the album's ... read more CD

Warner, 1986. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A really great later Patrick Adams production – done for the always catchy duo of Rodney Skipworth & Phil Turner, a real bright spot in mainstream mid 80s soul! The pair really have a way with a tune here – building things as the tracks go along, but never in a way that's too ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most legendary funk albums of the 70s – a real gem through and through, and filled with the best range of sounds the east coast scene had to offer at the time!

Skyy are soaring high at this point – they've dropped the space suits, but still have the heavy bass, and all those cosmic production touches that put them at the forefront of the new sound of 80s funk. The album's prehaps not as strong as some of their others for Salsoul, but still keeps ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A never-issued record from the Portland scene of the 70s – served up by a sharp funk ensemble who really know how to groove!

Stunning sounds from Sly & The Family Stone – a searing live performance from 1968, and one that appears here for the first time ever!

Epic, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
Hard to find a stronger early album by Sly – as this one has him still funking hard, but also getting his soul bag together a bit more, hitting some really righteous vibes that mix together politics and partying in an incredibly seductive way.

The earliest roots of the Sly Stone sound in California – but music that's very different than his heady sounds from the San Francisco scene at the end of the 60s!

A real gem from Lonnie Liston Smith's early years in the studio – and a record that's perhaps a bit more "cosmic" than it is "funk" – but that's why we like it so much! The session has Lonnie stretching out a bit more than usual – borrowing some of the ... (Jazz, Soul) read more CD

An obscure session of bluesy work for Capitol – sung by the enigmatic OZ Smith, an artist who recorded earlier under his real name of Osborne, for Argo Records, in a folksy mode.

A smooth mellow stepper from Smoke City – taken at a fairly slow pace, with washes of keyboards and some nice acoustic piano lines over the top, almost as an extension of a late Barry White mode, but less heavy on the beats.
