Nice second album by this band who's better known for their proto disco LP on Buddah. This one's got less of a disco feel, but it still has a sound that's mostly uptempo funk, with some good choppy grooves, and a few mellower soul cuts. Tracks include "Earl & Pearl", "Realize ...

First stereo pressing of a record that was issued earlier as Hard Driving Jazz, and later as Coltrane Time (it was later re-released under Coltrane's name.) The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a group that ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Great 80s Japanese pressing – sealed, and with obi!)
A full-blown score from Dimitri Tiomkin – one that rivals his famous work in earlier films, with a complex blend of orchestrations that really moves over the top right from the start – grabbing the listener with all the power of one of Burt Lancaster's spoken bits in the film! There's ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all ...

War Live! ... LP United Artists, 1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
War live, a perfect step forward – especially given that the group had already been so jamming on all their previous work in the studio! This classic double-length set may well be one of the best soul live albums of the 70s – right up there with similar 2LP packages from Curtis ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A huge moment for War – maybe the group's biggest album of the 70s, but a set that still has them holding onto everything that makes the great! Like Earth Wind & Fire at their best, War have this way of staying strong and righteous, while still able to hit a hook – jamming one ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorite Johnny Williams soundtracks ever – music for a barely-remembered heist film that starred Dick Van Dyke, but a set of tracks that really shows Williams moving into some wonderful new territory! There's a strongly jazzy vibe to the set – and Williams almost works at ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Sweet funky soul from the great Bobby Womack – a record that mixes Bobby's roots with some of the more righteous modes he picked up on Across 110th Street – blended here in a style that's completely sublime! The record was one of Womack's first to be entirely recorded on the west coast ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! ...

Boulders ... LP United Artists, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ...
Call it what you want, but to us, this is not so much an "oldies" set, as it is a great compilation of soul tunes that were issued on United Artists and some of its subsidiaries. 10 numbers in all, including the excellent Latin groover "Do You Dig It" by Ray Barretto, plus ...
