✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronRevolution Will Not Be Televised ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
An 80s collection, but one that's filled with gems from Gil Scott-Heron's legendary early years at Flying Dutchman – a time when he was recording some of his most impressively righteous material ever! The music's a hip mix of protest poetry and sweet jazzy numbers – played with great ... (Soul) read more CD

ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $11.99 16.98
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – ... (Soul) read more CD

Nina SimoneHere Comes The Sun ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About October 15, 2015
Classic RCA work from the great Nina Simone – and an album that definitely shows Nina hitting more of the soul spectrum than some of her folk and jazz work of the 60s! The set's got these wonderful arrangements from Harold Wheeler – a bit electric, and done in a way that takes familiar ... (Vocalists) read more CD
Also available Here Comes The Sun ... LP 14.99

✨✧ Nina SimoneSilk & Soul (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Nina's first for RCA – a mixture of jazz and soul tunes handled with some classy arrangements by Sammy Lowe, most of which feature nice electric bass work at the bottom by Gene Taylor! Taylor's bass gives the tracks a nice "dip" that's not exactly funky, but does provide a ... (Vocalists) read more CD

✨✧ Nina SimoneSings The Blues (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Nina's not just singing the blues here – she's completely reinventing the sound of the format – by drawing on a long tradition of vocal expression, and infusing it with the hipper, more personally exploratory mode she forged in the 60s! The album's got a subtle brilliance that means ... (Vocalists) read more CD

SpringSpring (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
Not the obscure Brian Wilson project of the same name, but an obscure UK group who may well even be cooler overall! Spring only ever cut this one debut album for RCA in the early 70s, but it's a gem from the time – not just for the band's sense of singing and songwriting, but also for it's ... (Rock) read more CD

✨✧ StellaStella (expanded edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/RPM (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great girl pop from the French scene of the 60s – sung by the ultra-hip Stella, a singer we'd rank right up there with the best material from France Gall or Francoise Hardy at the time! Stella may have even more wit than both, though – as the tunes have this sharp, tongue in cheek ... (French) read more CD

✨✧ Steven & SterlingOne Magic Night ... CD
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A groovy little gem from early 80s RCA – a set that sparkles with the same sort of energy as the label's work with Keni Burke at the time! Steven & Sterling are a hip duo who trade vocals back and forth nicely – working over rhythms that are mellow and midtempo, often with a hip ... (Soul) read more CD

Amii StewartAmii Stewart ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A surprisingly obscure album from 70s disco diva Amii Stewart – a set that was recorded for RCA in the early 80s, but never issued in the US at the time! Stewart works here in a mode that's a nice change from her previous clubby music – with more focus on midtempo tunes that offer up a ... (Soul) read more CD

Johnnie TaylorReflections ... CD
RCA/Fever Dream, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99
An obscure chapter in Johnnie Taylor's career – recorded between work at Stax and Columbia, with production and arrangements by Don Davis, who was a seminal force in guiding Johnnie's career. The album's a really strong one – with material that's a bit rootsier than the Columbia years, ... (Soul) read more CD

TeaseTease (RCA) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A mix of bassy funk and mainstream electro grooving from Tease – the RCA album from the group, and a record that seems to share a lot with the Minneapolis groove of Prince and The Time! In fact, there's a partyful snapping quality to most of the tracks here that's very much in the Morris Day ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Fonzi ThorntonLeader (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The debut album from Fonzi Thornton – a singer who didn't even need to cop a Happy Days name to get our attention! The style here is tight 80s groove at its best – lots of keyboards and basslines driving the tunes right from the start, and a sound that's pretty lean overall – and ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ ToomorrowToomorrow ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's "Toomorrow", not "tomorrow" – a pretty wild sci-fi musical from the start of the 70s – and one that features this very groovy group! The quartet features some vocals by a young Olivia Newton John – but it's the instrumentation here that really sends us ... (Soundtracks) read more CD

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliBeat Generation (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA/Contempo (Italy), 1960. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The great Armando Trovajoli composed some of the grooviest soundtracks of the late 60s – but at the start of the decade, he was also shining strongly on the jazz front as well – turning out amazing work on albums like this, which we'd love to death, even if we didn't know him from his ...

TymesTymes Up (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A really great album from the revived 70s version of The Tymes – a group who draw on a long legacy of harmonies in Philly soul, and who work here in a setting that really brings out their best! The whole record was produced and directed by Billy Jackson – and it's got a Philly/New York ... (Soul) read more CD

Piero UmilianiDa Roma A New York ... CD
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1957. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the first great moments from Italian composer Piero Umiliani – an artist who later did a huge amount of soundtracks in the 60s, but really got his start in jazz! Umiliani's wonderful here right from the start – laying out a set of all original tracks that mix tight arrangements ... (Jazz) read more CD

WarOutlaw ... CD
RCA/Avenue, 1982. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
A sweet snapping groove from War – a set that has the group picking up a bit more boogie in their bounce than before, but at a level that helps keep their funk fresh for a whole new generation! The album's a heck of a lot warmer and more live than most of their contemporaries – and ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Barney WilenMore From Barney At The Club Saint-Germain ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little set – never issued before, but recorded at the same time as Wilen's classic 1959 album Barney, caught live at the Club St-Germain with a group that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Duke Jordan on piano, Paul Rovere on bass, and Daniel Humair on drums. Like the Barney album, ... (Jazz) read more CD
