Beggar & CoMonument ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1981. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The great first album from Beggar & Co – a sweet UK soul trio from the early 80s, and one who grew from the ashes of the equally great Light Of The World! The style here is similar to LOTW's variation on American funk of the time – particularly the tight blend of jazz and funk they ... (Soul) read more CD

Polydor/FTG, 1977. Used ... $12.99
The first album by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie group – and a cooker of a set that follows strongly from Gregg's previous Hot Butterfly gem!

2 classics from Brass Construction – back to back on a single CD! III is the third killer from Brass Construction – served up in that fantastic Randy Muller groove!

Keni BurkeYou're The Best (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1982. Used ... $6.99
A really wonderful album from Keni Burke – recorded around the same time as his classic Changes set, and in some ways even better than that record!

✨✧ Tyrone DavisLet's Be Closer Together (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The cover has Tyrone Davis in a very diverse crowd, but the record is pure Davis all the way through – that great blend of bluesy roots and classier soul that made most of his 70s records so wonderful!

Earth Wind & Fire hits the 80s – and never misses a beat! Turns out that the group's older style of jazzy funk was a perfect fit for the boogie-styled rhythms of the post-disco era – heard here on the megahit "Let's Groove", and followed up by a beautiful batch of ... (Soul) read more CD
