Roscoe RobinsonWhy Must It End ... LP
Sound Stage 7/Charly (UK), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Deep soul from Roscoe Robinson – a singer who hardly ever got his due, but who made some killer singles at the end of the 60s! Roscoe's got a style that's rooted in the south, but has funkier touches too – a blend that marks his time spent both in the south and up in Chicago – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey RobinsonLove Breeze ... LP
Tamla, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Love Breeze finds Smokey effortlessly cutting back and forth from a funky 70s dancefloor soul mode to more delicate, classic soul steeped numbers and slow jams.

Smokey RobinsonSolo Anthology ... CD
Motown, 1970s/1980s. Used 2 CDs ... $12.99
Sweet solo work from Smokey Robinson – some of our favorite Motown recordings of the 70s! Although Smokey first kicked off his successful career with The Miracles, he really made a strong move when he broke with the group during the early 70s, and emerged on his own to cut some totally great ... read more CD

✨✧ Smokey RobinsonYes It's You Lady ... LP
Tamla, 1982. Very Good ... $0.99
A slightly more-grooving record than some of Smokey's others from the time – done in a style that rolls around in a mostly-midtempo mode. There's almost a gentle 80s groove approach at times, although some of the tunes on the set are definitely in that stone mellow love song style that was ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesFour In Blue ... LP
Tamla, 1969. Sealed ... $14.99
Although Smokey and crew are pictured in the front in the usual staid Motown matching suits – their hipper garb on the back cover belies the nice direction they've taken with this album, which shows the band hitting a more heavy soul style that's touched by a lot of the grooviness going ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Motown (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
About as classic as you can get for late 60s Miracles!

Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesWhat Love Has Joined Together ... LP
Tamla, 1970. Very Good ... $6.99
Excellent work by Smokey – recorded with a super-heavy vibe that's very different than his 60s work! The record has an amazingly large conception of arrangements – mostly handled by Smokey, and done in a complicated baroque harmony style that points forward towards his later Quiet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rochester Veasley Band (Cornell Rochester/Gerald Veasley)One Minute Of Love ... LP
Gramavision (Germany), 1985. Near Mint- ... $6.99

RockwellSomebody's Watching Me ... LP
Motown, 1983. Near Mint- ... $3.99
One of the strangest acts to come from Motown in the early 80s – and almost more of a new wave record than a soul one! The standout hit here is the title track "Somebody's Watching Me" – an odd electro tune that has Rockwell speaking/singing these paranoid lyrics with a vague ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1981. Very Good ... $3.99
There's many facets of Roger – and they're all pretty darn funky! From this vantage point, all we can think of is that Roger Troutman must have had some sort of crystal ball to see into the hip hop sampling future – either that, or he was busy cooking up west coast gangster funk drones ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones, 1983. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A bit of an odd album, but one that showed the Stones were alive and kicking in the 80s. Taking off from the Stones' take on disco from their previous couple of LPs but keeping a nice rough edge on the proceedings, Jagger and Richards turned in what's probably their last great studio LP. 10 ...

One of the greatest groups that Phil Spector ever got his hands on – and one of the most infamous, too!
