Phyllis HymanSomewhere In My Lifetime (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Cherry Red (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Warm and wonderful work from Phyllis Hyman – a set that's a lot more mainstream soul than her music of a few years before, but she delivers it with a strong commitment to the more complicated styles of her roots! The sound here is full and proud – a nice extension of the work that ... (Soul) read more CD

Phyllis HymanYou Know How To Love Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/FTG, 1979. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A classic 1979 album from Phyllis Hyman! Hyman was one of the few female singers who started in the pre-disco years and managed to move through the disco years with a good groove – but never get totally swamped by the production styles of the day. She stuck close to her roots as a jazzy ... (Soul) read more CD

Pheelco, 2013. New Copy ... $12.99
This mighty combo do it again – and really blow our minds with their rich reworking of older traditions, complex instrumentation, and tight rhythms – all served up in a set that may well be the group's funkiest ever!

Abdullah IbrahimSong Is My Story (CD/DVD) ... CD
Sunnyside, 2015. New Copy CD & DVD ... $16.99 18.98
Sublime solo piano from Abdullah Ibrahim – and a set that also features a bit of solo saxophone as well! The performance was recorded in an Italian concert hall with a wonderfully resonant sound – and the material is half compositions by Ibrahim, and half improvisations that have a ...

Icebreakers & The Mighty DiamondsPlanet Mars Dub ... CD
Virgin/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A Mighty Diamonds album at the core, but one that often pushes the group's vocals off to the side – to allow for plenty of dubby interplay in the instrumentation! The real stars of the set are a Compass Point lineup with drums by Sly Dunbar and horns by Tommie McCook – all mixed and ... (Reggae) read more CD

Tony IglioDrugstore ... CD
Try/Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
You gotta love a record with song titles like "Marijuana", "Drugstore", and "Hurrycane" – and we can definitely promise that the overall sound definitely matches those trippy references! The record's one of the most obscure Italian sound library sets from the ... (Sound Library) read more CD

✨✧ IjahmanAre We A Warrior/Haile I Hymn ... CD
Island (Japan), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $13.99
2 great lost roots albums from the underrated Ijahman Levi! At the cusp of the 80s he appeared poised to achieve the level of dominance over the Jamaican scene like Burning Spear held in the early 70s, only to leave us with these 2 monumental recordings and labor quietly for the rest of his career. ...

Ikebe ShakedownStone By Stone ... CD
Ubiquity, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A really great second album from Ikebe Shakedown – easily the group's best work so far, and a real cut above the usual Afro-styled groove! These guys have a great way of laying back in their rhythms – still keeping things funky, but nicely paced too – so that there's a fresh feel ... (Deep Funk) read more CD

Yoshio IkedaSketch Of My Life ... CD
King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
It could well be argued that in the 70s, the Japanese jazz scene was possibly the greatest place to be a bassist – as players like Yoshi Ikeda really had a chance to stretch out their sound, and try something new with records like this! The album's a really inventive little set – warm, ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ ImpressionsImpressions (1963) ... CD
ABC/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic soul from the Chicago scene of the 60s – the legendary first ABC album by Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions! Although the group first broke big on Vee Jay Records, it was at ABC that their genius really took flight – tightening up the harmonies of the earlier singles, and ... (Soul) read more CD

In CrowdMan From New Guinea ... CD
Mango (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the lesser-known Jamaican acts to record for Island Records during their big reggae years of the 70s – but a great one too, and well worth discovering through this overlooked gem! The album's the group's second (of two) – and has this great laidback approach to roots – ... (Reggae) read more CD

Vocalist Yasuhsi Sawada joins Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media group this time around – but in a way that seems to create a whole new sound from both artists!

Incognito never lets us down – and records like this keep us listening strongly year after year!

Incredible Bongo BandBongo Rock (UK pressing with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pride/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $7.99
A landmark album that is perhaps the single most influential beat source in hip hop! The record was the brainchild of bongo player Michael Viner – who also happened to be running the Pride subsidiary of MGM at the time. Viner's got a meeeeeean touch on the bongo, hitting it hard and funky ... (Soul) read more CD

Infinite Spirit MusicLive Without Fear (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Ancient Afrika/Shout (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $19.99
Beautifully spiritual work from this obscure Chicago group from the late 70s – an AACM ensemble, and quite possibly one of the most soulful we've ever heard! There's a really spare, earthy approach to the work here – one that uses percussion, piano, and saxes from Light Henry Huff ... (Jazz) read more CD

James IngramIt's Real ... CD

Excello/KTI (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A beautiful little album from the earliest days of the Ingram empire in soul – recorded long before any of the individual members had gone onto bigger mainstream fame, and done in a way that has lots of righteous indie touches!

Bocian (Poland), 2013. New Copy ... $12.99
An international group, but one recorded in Chicago on two different occasions – both excellent live performances that show the strengths of this all-star quartet!

Takeshi Inomata & Sound LimitedSounds Of Sound Limited (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $29.99
A killer funky group from early 70s Japan – a slightly large ensemble, but one with some really heavy drums at the bottom – plus some great use of organ and electric guitar! There's a tight brace of horns at the top – flute, tenor, trumpets, and trombone – but the rhythms ... (Jazz) read more CD

Columbia, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
Pure wonderfulness from Internet – a group who seem to bound forward strongly with each new release! These guys are easily one of the most compelling mainstream soul acts we can think of – still very lean, and working with an indie-level vibe – but also able to focus in on hooks ...
