Edwin StarrHell Up In Harlem ... LP
Motown, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent blacksploitation soundtrack – and every bit as funky as any of Willie Hutch's work for other Motown soundtracks at the time! Larry Mizell and Dennis Coffey help out on the instrumentation – giving the album an extra funky instrumental edge, one that takes it way past Edwin ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Edwin StarrWar & Peace ... CD
Gordy (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
A real breakout album for Edwin Starr – and the kind of full-on set that really helped give his music a bold new focus! Starr had already scored nicely on some playful tracks from the Motor City scene of the late 60s – but here, he emerges as a singer with a lot more depth than before ... read more CD

The only full album from Starvue – a late 70s Chicago group who were part of that overlooked scene in the city once the bigger labels had moved on!

Warner, 1980. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A new day for Candi Stanton – kicking off the 80s with a tighter grooving modern soul sound – and she nails it!

Dakota StatonLate Late Show ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
A Capitol classic from Dakota Staton – and the record that made her a real leading lady at the label in the years before Nancy Wilson's rise! The set's got a wonderfully laidback feel that's in keeping with the title, yet it also swings nicely too – kind of a new level of soul in jazz ... (Vocalists, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A groovy little gem from early 80s RCA – a set that sparkles with the same sort of energy as the label's work with Keni Burke at the time!

Gordy, 1981. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A well-rounded set from Rick James' Stone City Band – a set that's got some mellower moments than most of Rick's own work from the time – but in a nice way that really offsets the group's tendency towards bassier funk! Lead vocalist Levi Ruffin stretches out nicely on a few more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1987. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Maybe not as "street" as you might think from the group's name – or from the fake graffiti on the cover – but a pretty nice little mainstream soul album, and one that's almost a precursor to later New Jack sounds to come!

Amazing! This lost Roy Ayers-produced gem from the early 80s has not only been one of the biggest sample records of all time, but it's also become one of the holy grails of the groovy record collecting scene!

Elite, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A strange bit of Carribean soul from singer Wendell Stuart. Stuart hails from The Bahamas, but this album's got none of the cliches that other albums of the sort usually have – with no steel band, no calypso, and no overdone tropical rhythms. Instead, Stuart's style's a bit like that of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A nice little live set from Stuff – one that's recorded in Tokyo, with a groove that's a bit more open than their better-known New York live album from a few years later!

Donna Summer's in the hands of 80s pop superproducers Stock/Aiken/Waterman this time around – and the trio give her music just the kind of catchy, bouncy feel of some of their bigger hits for other artists at the time!
