Ahhhh . . .

✨✧ Salsoul OrchestraNice N Naasty (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent groover from the legendary Vince Montana! Vince arranged, produced, conducted, and wrote just about all of this second album by hard-grooving Salsoul Orchestra – and the album's a no-nonsense batch of disco instrumentals that's way better than many of the fake albums of the type ...

Salsoul OrchestraSalsoul Orchestra (1st LP) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
The soaring debut of one of the greatest groups of the disco era – and one that would go onto be the sound of Salsoul Records too! The large mostly-instrumental ensemble is headed up by Vince Montana – who brings plenty of Philly disco touches into play with the group's wonderful blend ... (Soul) read more CD

ShalamarFriends (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Solar/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99
A key album in the legendary 80s run of Shalamar – and a set that gets a tremendous amount out of a very stripped-down sound! The sound of Shalamar builds from a bit of bass, some snapping drums, waves of keyboards, and especially great vocals – warm and sweet, but never too commercial ... (Soul) read more CD

Marlena ShawSweet Beginnings (plus bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
A real classic from Marlena Shaw – a key 70s album that has the singer moving back to soul after some years in the jazz side of the spectrum – but with an approach that still holds onto all the sophistication she picked up along the way! The record's got some wonderful arrangements and ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Bunny SiglerThat's How Long I'll Be Loving You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work by Bunny Sigler – and a perfect bridge between his earlier Philly soul from the late 60s, and his later disco from the end of the 70s! Bunny's in perfect form vocally – and the record is a super-strong batch of tracks that deserves to be well up there in the Gamble/Huff ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Silver ConventionGet Up & Boogie (with bonus tracks) (aka Silver Connection) ... CD
Success/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smash hit from Silver Convention – thanks to the dark pop disco hit "Get Up & Boogie", the leadoff tune on this surprisingly strong set! The strength of the album really comes from the masterful blend of strings, beats, and piano from arranger/producer/keyboardist Silvester ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Silver ConventionMadhouse (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Midland/Big Break, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Silver Convention groove is nicely opening up on this set – with an approach that actually seems a bit jazzier than the group's first two albums, bringing more of a focus on the keyboards of Silvester Levay – who's really the brainchild behind the whole group anyway! At some level, ... (Soul) read more CD

Silver ConventionSave Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
A huge breakout moment for disco in the 70s – the first album from Silver Convention, a very early example of the European power on the club scene! The group's the brainchild of arranger Sylvester Levay and producer Michael Kunze – who come up with some great German disco rhythms for ... (Soul) read more CD

Silver ConventionSummernights (aka Golden Girls) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Midsong/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... On June 1, 2015
The Silver Girls are still going strong here – shining nicely under pop disco arrangements from maestro Silvester Levay, who seems to have softened his sound nicely – but in a good way, one that shakes off some of the coldness of the earlier Silver Convention records! Vocals are by ... (Soul) read more CD

A heavy package of work from the legendary Skyy – the funky club combo headed by Randy Muller after his work with BT Express and Brass Construction!

✨✧ Edwin StarrInvolved (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most righteous albums ever from Edwin Starr – as if you couldn't guess from the title and cover! The set has Starr reprising his "War" hit at the start, then rolling through a whole run of heavy tracks with the great Norman Whitfield – who takes Edwin into some of ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Edwin StarrSoul Master (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mod soul classic from the great Edwin Starr – a set that bridges his years in the Detroit underground and his sudden rise to fame at Motown! The tracks here have a really deep basement grooving sort of vibe – catchy, but less poppy than the usual Motown – and more with the kind ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ SwitchSwitch (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A seminal bit of seventies soul from Switch, and a record that really helped set the tone for countless others to come in the 80s – no surprise, given that the group's got members from both the DeBarge and Ingram families! There's a warmth here that few others can match – an earnest, ... (Soul) read more CD

Taste Of HoneyLadies Of The Eighties (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $14.99
Not the Roy Ayers' group of the same name as the title – but a killer set from Taste Of Honey – a pair of lovelies who more than lay claim to the role – given the power they lent to female soul at the start of the 80s! The album's got a killer groove throughout – loads of ... (Soul) read more CD

Joe TexBumps & Bruises (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, ... (Soul) read more CD

Timmy ThomasWhy Can't We Live Together (with bonus tracks) ... CD
TK/Big Break (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $14.99
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 ... $9.99
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

✨✧ Anita WardSongs Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Juana/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of THE disco hits of the 70s – a set that spawned not only a huge hit single for Anita Ward, but which also firmly pushed the Miami scene over the top! The record's a wonderful mix of modes – served up with stone southern soul production from Frederick Knight, but also given plenty ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ WatersWatercolors (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nicely grooving set to start the 80s by The Waters – an underappreciated 2-man, 2-woman LA vocal group who did a considerable amount of backup vocals in the studio scene of the late 70s – and this is easily their best record! It's got some of the best arrangements the group ever ... (Soul) read more CD
