✨✧ Timmy ThomasWhy Can't We Live Together (with bonus tracks) ... CD
TK/Big Break (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album from Timmy Thomas – one that mixes together electronics and soul in this wonderfully unique mellow groove – a style that's hardly ever been matched again, and which may well put this album at the same level as Shuggie Otis' classic Inspiration Information set! Timmy's ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ TJMTJM (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A later bit of Philly disco – recorded at Sigma Sound studios with really soaring production from Tom Moulton – and some surprising help on a number of tracks from a young Arthur Baker! The style here has that Instant Funk sort of groove – a bit more bass at the bottom than ... (Soul) read more CD

Weather GirlsBig Girls Don't Cry (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1985. New Copy ... $5.99
Soaring vocals from The Weather Girls, set to bouncy grooves that are equal parts soul and pop! Martha Wash and Izora Armstead have mighty vocal chops throughout – that bold duo approach they first crafted as Two Tons O Fun, and pushed even more strongly as The Weather Girls – set here ...

Deniece WilliamsWhen Love Comes Calling (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A seminal set in the career of Deniece Williams – an album that really helped her find the voice she'd use more strongly in the 80s, but one that still holds onto all the best strongly soulful styles of her earlier work! There's a catchy bounce here that's quite compelling – but the ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Lenny WilliamsRise Sleeping Beauty (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Lenny's first solo records – rawer than later work, thanks probably to the fact that he produced the record with Chester Thompson – and it's wonderful stuff! Thompson plays organ and arp on the record, and gives many tracks a nice heavy funk sound that's similar to his and ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Linda WilliamsCity Living (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer bit of modern soul – one of the standout classics from the best years of Arista! Richard Evans produced and arranged this excellent set of smooth soul grooves for Linda Williams. Linda plays keyboards and sings, and the album was recorded in 2 different sessions – one in LA, ... (Soul) read more CD

Yarbrough & PeoplesTwo Of Us (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
A massive hit for the duo of Calvin Yarbrough and Alisa Peoples – and for good reason too! The set's equally well-balanced between upbeat, keyboard-heavy groovers and key mellower tracks – just the kind of rounded record we might expect from Ashford & Simpson at their late 70s best ...

Karen YoungHot Shot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
West End/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Around June 25, 2014 (delayed)
Classic club from Karen Young – definitely one of the campier talents on the West End label, but still pretty soulful overall! The album's almost more in the mode of work on Prelude than West End – as tracks are all long, and roll along with a fair bit of instrumentation in the mix ... (Soul) read more CD
