Angela BofillSomething About You ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A soaring classic from Angie Bofil – a record that stands as one of the most perfect demonstrations of her upbeat, positive approach to soul!

Brecker BrothersStraphangin ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
It's our bet that the Brecker Brothers probably weren't straphanging on their way to work in this point in their careers – given the classy, professional sound of this set – which was more likely to earn them a ride in a limo than a place in the subway! But we certainly don't hold that ... (Jazz) read more CD

Norman ConnorsMr C ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunner from the wonderful Norman Connors – an artist who just seemed to get better and better at soul music the farther he moved away from jazz! Make no mistake, there's still plenty of jazz in the mix here – as backings are by Connors' great Starship Orchestra, with Marion Meadows ... (Soul) read more CD

Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic bit of modern soul from Norman Connors – proof that he was still growing and changing as an artist, continuing to push his groove into whole new areas as the 70s progressed.

Gino CunicoGino Cunico ... CD
Arista/Sony (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
Catchy 70s pop from Gino Cunico – just the right sort of songs that would have sounded wonderful coming out of an AM radio in your car – with that kind of production that somehow managed to make that tiny speaker on the dashboard sound so much stronger than it was! Gino puts himself ... (Rock) read more CD

Arista/Sony (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
Early work from Randy Edelman – one of those AOR songsmiths who had no trouble turning out great material for records of his own!

ExposeWhat You Don't Know (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Cherry Pop (UK), 1989. New Copy 3CD ... $11.99
The female pop soul trio was alive and well in the 80s – morphed strongly from its 60s girl group roots and 70s disco chorus mode – to the point where a group like Expose was perfectly poised to take over the top of the charts! That catchy, poppy style is very firmly in place here ... (Soul) read more CD

HeadhuntersStraight From The Gate ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
The second album by this legendary 70s funk combo – best known as Herbie Hancock's backing band, but sounding great here on their own.
