A sweet, smooth stepper from the great Randy Brown – and a record that's got the same sublime mix of mellow grooves and earthy vocals that you might find on some of Tyrone Davis' best late 70s work for Columbia! Tunes are all plenty darn fresh – written by the team of Homer Banks and ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Randy Brown —
Randy ... LP Chocolate City, 1981. Near Mint- ...
Fantastic work by Randy Brown – one of the unsung heros of modern soul! This album ranks with Randy's best work on Chocolate City, and features some sublime numbers that groove along gracefully – stepping along to smooth vocals from Randy, occasionally getting a bit funkier. The album ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Excellent smooth modern soul from Vernon Burch – perhaps with lyrics that are a bit corny at times, but also with some monster hooks that keep the songs grooving nicely! The record's got some of the better production you'll hear on Vernon's albums, and the best tracks have a smooth midtempo ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Cameosis ... LP Chocolate City, 1980. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Full-on frenetic funk from Cameo – one of the group's tightest albums, yet still without any of the too-slick sounds of later years! The sound here is amazing – and we always find ourselves wondering how a group of guys can hit such perfect grooves with just a bunch of basses, guitars, ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great 80s groove from Cameo – but one that's still done in the group's best early funk ensemble mode! There's maybe a bit more emphasis on the basslines and keyboards than before, but the sound of the music is still wonderfully full and spontaneous – very much in keeping with the ...

Massively funky work from Cameo – a set that's right in the middle of their classic early run – and still quite strong on the bass-heavy grooves the group helped inspire in countless legions of imitators! The tightness of the set is incredible – moving at a pace that's simply ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A sweet stunner from Cameo – a set that's got the group working with an even tighter, more on the money sound than before – yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial! These guys were one of the first to push the big ensemble funk sound into a leaner approach, and they really ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Ugly Ego ... LP Chocolate City, 1978. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from Cameo – the group's third release! The album's got a great approach that hints at more sophisticated soul styles, but which is still firmly in charge of the bass-driven grooves that made their early albums so great – a compressed approach to the ...

Smoke (aka Black Smoke) —
Smoke ... LP Chocolate City, 1976. Used ...
Out Of Stock
This group were one of a number to use the name Smoke during the 70s – but at some point they were forced to change their name to Black Smoke, and you'll see the record listed both ways, but with the same cover. The band's a mixed ensemble of funk players – and they've got a sound that ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Excellent work from Starpoint – the kind of all-solid album that easily marks them as one of the most soulful groups of the boogie generation! There's a depth here that goes way beyond simple bass-heavy grooves for the dancefloor – a sound that picks a fair bit up from the Earth Wind ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Massive work from Starpoint – the kind of all-great record that few other groups of their era could hope to match! The set's got way more going on than usual the usual 80s groove (although that's very firmly in place too) – and steps out with a tightness and sense of presence that ...

Ed Townsend, the great soul composer and producer responsible for many big hits over the years, put together this album with some younger generation family members and an outside ringer. The result is a great album of modern group soul with a cool mellow soul vibe that's similar to some of the ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
