Proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI is totally great – a whole new chapter for Jackson's vibes, and a real re-setting of the ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The classic album by the DOC from the glory days of Ruthless Records – really up there in excellence with NWA in the gritty west coast canon – with timeless production by Dr. Dre! Nice mic skills paired with tight, funky production from Dre when he still hungry and on the ascent. 13 ... (Hip Hop) read moreCD
Classic 12" version of this one! "Oh Honey" is a killer, with a great spacey soul sound, and a monster sample on the intro. This version is 6 minutes long – a real treat! (Soul) 12-inch, Vinyl record

1980 ... LP Roadshow/Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest albums ever from BT Express – tighter, smoother, and classier than the group's early funky disco sessions – and with a cosmic sound that shows them really growing at the time! The sound here steps off from both the group's own horn-heavy disco sides of the 70s, and ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & large letters in marker on both sides.)
A big big crossover album from the UK ska scene of the early 80s – built upon the ashes of the older Specials group, but still with plenty of the dark edges we'd come to expect in Jerry Dammers work! There's a bit more electric instrumentation at the bottom of the tracks, but the sound is ... (Reggae) read moreCD
Sarah Vaughan may be known for an earlier recording of After Hours for the Columbia label in the 50s – but on this early 60s set for Roulette, the title really fits her style – and is perfect for the mature, melancholy way that Vaughan has of putting over a tune! Sarah always had a ... (Vocalists) read moreCD
A sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than before! The record is proof that the up and coming soul artists of the 60s had a key place alongside the more established mainstream acts on the other ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A rare glimpse at the earlier years of singer Eric Roberson – a promo-only single, issued during his very brief stay at Warner Brothers! The track's a bit more mainstream than Roberson's solo work of the 21st Century – but still plenty darn great, and the kind of real soul track that ... (Soul) read more12-inch, Vinyl record
Ten tight break loops from Prince Quick Mix and The Undercover Brother, in the same fat and funky styule of the others in this series, for your mixing and freestyling pleasure!

Original Windy C single of this Chicago soul classic, with stellar production by Curtis Mayfield on both sides, and the kind of sound that made the Burke family a legend while the Jackson 5 were still in diapers! Sweet heavenly vocals – and harmonies that are way better crafted than you'd ... (Funky 45's) read more7-inch, Vinyl record

2 great ones by The Ovations – both done in the Sam Cooke-inspired style that was the group's strongest suit at the time – but also inflected with some nice touches of sweet southern soul – cooking things with a great 70s sort of groove! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
Betty's landmark hit – and a tune that never grows old! "Clean Up Woman" is a killer – tight, spare, and funky guitar at the beginning – which you'll recognize instantly from it's many famous samples, and which still gets the song started as right as it ever could! ...

Although the great Lenny Bruce never appeared in the Bob Fosse film based on his tragic story, Dustin Hoffman did a pretty great job of recreating his style, and of bringing together good performances of some of the most important monologues by Lenny, which are often missing from his other recorded ...

Trussel may have cut this one and only album at the end of the 70s – but they've got a strength that's kept them going for years – despite a lack of success at the time! The record's a sweet modern soul stunner – a record that picks up a sweet jazzy groove that's augmented with ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Sessions like this are proof that Jimmy was one of the most fantastic organ players ever – as his work with large arrangements (supplied here by Claus Ogerman) always seems to groove better than his work with small combos. His sound is impeccable, and he soars ahead of the rest of the ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
1976 collection of the O'Jays' earlier stuff for the Bell label, with smooth George Kerr production, and beautiful Richard Tee arrangements that give the group the same sort of fragile east coast group soul sound as The Whatnauts or Moments, and a lot less of the Philly sound that they'd get later ...

Early 80s slap bass funk – of the sort that was showing up on the Liberty label at the time, and which here comes across pretty well. The best cut is "Love Is On The One", which has a catchy sing-song groove, and a very nice hook. Both tracks from the Point of Pleasure LP. (Soul) 12-inch, Vinyl record
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect ...

2 sides of work by this oft-overlooked late Chicago soul group! The real gem here is "Share My Love With You" – a sublime harmony soul ballad, and the kind of track that rivals the best of the New Jersey vocal group scene of the early 70s! A wonderful track that should have been ... (Soul) read more12-inch, Vinyl record
As the label says, the soon to be classic posse cut with male and female MC's including DCQ, Pumpkinhead, Ces, Poka Face, Meat Pie, Ocean, The Bad Seed, and What?What? Similar to those amazing Natural Resource singles. (Hip Hop) 12-inch, Vinyl record
