Chocolate Jam CoSpread Of The Future ... CD
Epic/PTG (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy ... $18.99
A funky fusion classic from the 70s – totally great work from Chocolate Jam Company, a hip little group headed up by percussionist Leon Ndugu Chancler! The core sound is soul, but there's plenty of fusion touches as well – thanks to a great lineup of players that includes Oscar ... read more CD
Also available Spread Of The Future ... LP 8.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
ClashCombat Rock (2013 Black Friday Release) ... CD
Epic, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Sure, the cover's a bit dated – but the politics have stayed surprisingly strong over the years – as has the music as well! Keep in mind that The Clash were waging war in the Mideast years before Desert Storm – in this searing mix of London punk, rocksteady roots, and slight new ... read more CD

✨✧ Johnny ColesWarm Sound (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by trumpeter Johnny Coles – a player who's probably best known to the world for his work with Charles Mingus, or for his other 60s session on Blue Note! This album's quite different than both of those aspects of Johnny's career – and has him ... read more CD

✨✧ DesignDesign/Tomorrow Is So Far Away ... CD
Epic/RPM (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early 70s sunshine pop from Design – their self-titled set from 1970 and the just as groovy Tomorrow Is So Far Away – together in a single set! Design has a way with male and female harmonies that really sets them apart, even though that style was huge in the late 60s and early 70s. ... read more CD

✨✧ George DukeRendezvous (with bonus track) ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An underappreciated soul set from George Duke for Epic – his Rendezvous from '84 – an engagement worth keeping! Given the mid 80s release date, you might be expecting a whole lot of programming and drum machine action – there's a bit of it, but this is a really lively set with ... read more CD

✨✧ Curtis FullerSouth American Cookin' ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not Curtis Fuller in South America, but a record that picks up a very slight Latin vibe in the rhythm – which makes for a nice change from Fuller's sessions for Blue Note! The date was recorded during that great short run of soul jazz cookers on early 60s Epic Records – and is a ... read more CD

✨✧ HeatwaveCurrent (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
80s grooving hard with Heatwave – still going strong on this album from 1982, taking that smooth funky style they helped forge in the 70s, and pushing it to a whole new level on this set! Over the years, the group continue to show a tremendous depth as a soul act, working here well on both ... read more CD

Bobbi HumphreyGood Life (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Excellent later work from Bobbie Humphrey – working here in a style that's different than her early albums for Blue Note – but still equally great! Bobbi's a bit more of a singer here, but the record still features loads of great work on flute as well – in these tight, full ... read more CD

Bobbi HumphreyTailor Made ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Sure, it's after the Blue Note/Larry Mizell years – but Bobbi Humphrey's still kicking ass! Instead of Larry Mizell, Bobbi's working with Skip Scarborough – and she's hitting a groove that's a bit smoother and more modern than before, but every bit as sweetly funky and seriously ... read more CD

Michael JacksonXscape ... CD
Epic, 2014. New Copy ... $10.99
Some of the best work we've heard from Michael Jackson in years – even though the set brings together lost recordings from the many years of Michael's career! The range of sounds here is really wonderful, and the performances are surprisingly great – moments that somehow never found ... read more CD

✨✧ JonesesJoneses ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer for the Joneses – probably their strongest album all the way through, thanks to some great production and arrangements by Bobby Eli! This one's got the group taking the fragile harmony style of their earlier records, and filtering it through the Philly powerhouse groove to create a ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ KrystolPassion From A Woman (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Poppy passion from Krystol – a sweet 80s trio with a definite way with a hook! The set's got a well-balanced mainstream sound – one that helps the vocals find a fullness right away, either on the leads or harmonies – both woven together over the top of the tight, beat-heavy ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Patti LabelleReleased (with bonus track) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real standout in the early solo years of Patti Labelle – and a great set that reunites the singer with New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint – who'd previously worked some magic with Patti and the Labelle trio! Toussaint really grounds Patti's vocals wonderfully – giving them a ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Patti LabelleTasty (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real classic from the great Patti Labelle – one of the lady's first few albums as a solo act, and a set that definitely marks her step forward into a whole new sort of sophisticated soul! Some of the funkier, grittier touches of the Labelle years are in place – but Patti's also got ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Teena MarieStarchild (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
A stunning solo effort – Teena's second on Epic, and proof that she could still put out the goods on her own! Don't worry about the absence of Rick James here – as things are mighty tight, and right on the money – that wicked blend of funk and soul that got Lady T a great start ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ MCBMCB ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Super-tight funk from MCB – a group with a former Cameo pedigree, bumping out here into the lean, mean, sound of early 80s soul! The trio features Aaron Mills (the M), TC Campbell (the C), and Jeryl Bright (the B) – all working in that great stripped-down mode you'll find on some of ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ MtumeJuicy Fruit (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... Around May 4, 2015
Sweet funky work from Mtume – a set that's nicely heavy on the keyboards, and which really set a new standard in 80s groove at the time! The keyboards are great, and the basslines are too – and Mtume's jazz roots are still nicely in place here – bringing a bit more sophistication ... read more CD
Also available Juicy Fruit ... LP 4.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Ndugu & The Chocolate Jam CoDo I Make You Feel Better (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Definitely the sort of album to make you feel better – given the tight, soulful sounds of Ndugu Chancler and this Chocolate Jam Company! The album's got roots in jazz – Ndugu's a drummer with work on countless other albums – but also steps out with plenty of soul, too – ... read more CD
