Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The best work ever from the great Johnny Adams – a Crescent City soul singer with a hell of a lot of power, brought into wonderfully strong focus here on these early recordings for the Ric & Ron label! Johnny recorded later in Nashville and Jackson, but he's never sounded better than on ... read more CD

New Ambrose AkinmusireImagined Savior Is Far Easier To Paint ... CD
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
The music here is as evocative as the title – almost a mix of contemporary Blue Note modes with older ECM styles – all served up as a perfect showcase for the ever-growing talents of trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire! We've really dug the last two records from Ambrose, and this one seems to ... read more CD

New Ruby AndrewsBlack Ruby (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Zodiac/KTI (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A hell of a great record from Ruby Andrews – a Chicago soul singer who started out sweet, but comes on hard and heavy on this righteous classic from the start of the 70s! The record's got a badass vibe you never would have expected from Andrews a few years before – with tremendous ... read more CD

New Horace AndyFeel Good All Over – Anthology 1970-1976 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
Okay. . .okay, there may be a few other singers we like to hold up as our favorite (like Jimmy Cliff), but for real, Horace Andy's at the top of the heap. Maybe it's because we're from Chicago and have a soft spot for sweet falsetto a la Eugene Record or Curtis Mayfield, though we'd never claim ... read more CD

New Dorothy AshbyAfro-Harping ... CD

New Ashford & SimpsonSolid (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Cherry Pop (UK), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
Darn solid work from Ashford & Simpson – one of the duo's biggest albums for Capitol Records, and a great set from their 80s run for the label!

New Baby HueyBaby Huey Story – The Living Legend ... CD
Curtom (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic! The lost link in the Chicago soul scene of the 60s was Baby Huey – and he was a pretty darn big link too, if you've ever seen him in pictures! Weighing in at about 300 pounds, Baby Huey was sort of a rockin' soul star who played clubs on both sides of the city, to audiences of ... read more CD

New Francis BebeyPsychedelic Sanza 1982 to 1984 ... CD
Born Bad (France), Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Totally cool, totally amazing music from the enigmatic Francis Bebey – a contemporary on the early 80s African scene of William Onyeabor, and an equally experimental artists!

New Walter Bishop, Jr.Keeper Of My Soul ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
One of Walter Bishop's greatest records – an amazing session that's as funky as it is spiritual – and quite different than most of Bishop's other work! The vibe here is wonderful – as Bish plays a host of keyboards, not just piano – and works in the company of other players ... read more CD

New Brand New HeaviesSweet Freaks ... CD
Eagle Rock, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
The Brand New Heavies never seem to lose their power at all – and while it might show our age a bit to say we've been digging these guys for 25 years, we're still very proud to be keeping tabs on their music!

New BrothersDon't Stop Now (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Great stuff – and the kind of group that would be easy to overlook if the tracks weren't so good! The Brothers were clearly some sort of a studio project designed to cash in on the disco craze – and they included Bhen Lanzaroni on keyboards, who'd also recorded a bit on his own as a ... read more CD

New Brothers By ChoiceBrothers By Choice (She Puts The Ease Back Into Easy) (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
ALA/KTI (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99

A legendary team, heard here at the height of their powers – at a time when both Peter Brotzmann and Sonny Sharrock were finding a bold musical space alongside each other! The pair had worked in Last Exit with a bit more of a frenetic rock jazz vibe – but here, the style is much more ... read more CD

New James BrownBlack Caesar ... CD
Polygram, 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental ... read more CD

New James BrownRevolution Of The Mind ... CD
Polydor, 1971. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Subtitled "Live At the Apollo Vol 3", but waaay better than any of the earlier volumes, this monster 2LP live set has James and the JB's wailing away in a freewheeling live set of hard hard hard funky grooves. Excellent work by the band, and a great way to see how sharp they were out of ... read more CD

New Eric Burdon & The AnimalsWinds Of Change (mono edition) ... CD
MGM/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The Winds Of Change are definitely afoot in the sound of The Animals – as the album's one of their most psychedelic outings ever – and also a bit funky at times too! Production by Tom Wilson is really great – echoey at most moments, with a kind of "flash" and shimmer ... read more CD
Also available Winds Of Change (180 gram mono edition) ... LP 23.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Billy Butler & InfinityHung Up On You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pride/Fever Dream, 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A gem of a record from the great Billy Butler – brother of better-known Jerry from the Chicago scene, and maybe best known for his northern soul work of the 60s – but a hell of a great artist here in a rare group soul date from the 70s! Billy's lead vocals are supported by the Infinity ... read more CD

New Donald ByrdStepping Into Tomorrow ... CD
Blue Note, 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
An essential bit of jazz funk from Donald Byrd and Larry Mizell! The groove's very similar to the classic Places & Spaces, and the record's got loads of cool spacey tracks with hot funky trumpet from Donald, and cool waves of synth and sound from Larry. The title cut's a great groover, and ... read more CD
Also available Stepping Into Tomorrow ... LP 9.99
