King, Late 50s. Good ... $24.99
Killer early stuff from Hank – when he was just about the size of a bratty kid, and he had a voice on him that would stop a train! Loads of shoutin R&B tunes, including "The Coffee Grind", "I Love You So-o-o", "Don't Go, I Love You", "Look At Little ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A nice album of smooth sophisticated soul tracks from Patryce Banks, a singer who'd worked with Graham Central Station during their classic years, and who also guested a bit on jazz sides during the 70s.

Amazing work from the new version of The Bar-Kays – a group who reformed to become a combo as heavy as any of the best funky groups from Detroit, LA, or New York at the time!

Universal Awareness/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
The even more obscure second volume to the great soul/gospel classic Do Not Pass Me By – and like the first, the product of a wonderfully spiritual setting on Chicago's south side – music created in the church, but with all the same vibe as the hippest secular soul coming from the Windy ...
