Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 LPs
The amazing prequel to the big wave of funk and soul that exploded from the Minneapolis scene at the end of the 70s – early sounds that really point the way towards later grooves from folks like Prince, Alexander O'Neal, Andre Cymone, and the team of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis! The massive ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Playback, 1975. New Copy
Way more funk than disco – and a set that really shows the grittier groove that was going down in the clubs in the years before Studio 54! Think of this one more as in the mode of funky 45s from the mid 70s – as the album's a compilation of groups we've mostly never heard of – ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A beautiful tribute to a legendary Chicago soul historian – the late Bob Abrahamian, well-remembered as a completely devoted soul music collector, DJ, and one-man archive who spent the late years of his life trying to uncover lost corners of the Windy City soul scene of the 60s and 70s! Bob's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Athens Of The North (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
One of the coolest collections of music we've ever heard from the legendary TK Records in Miami – a company that was a powerhouse of 70s hits and disco classics – but which also cut some wonderful underground soul at the time! This sublime set looks at that great lesser-known legacy of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The MGs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mod Jazz
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of our favorite compilations of all time – a smoking batch of soulful jazz from the 60s, with a slight bit of funk and blues thrown in as well! The set's exactly what's promised in the title – jazz cuts, but with an ultra-cool mod vibe – the kind of soulful sounds that played ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
Spiritual sounds from the source – a host of incredible tracks from a time when jazz was really opening up into new dimensions – as players stepped forward in a wave of strong post-Coltrane energy to really push the music into the skies! The music here can be seen as a blueprint for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fania/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
One of the hippest sets we've ever seen on Spanish Harlem – a collection that goes way past the Latin Soul hits, to dig deep in the uptown underground at the end of the 60s! The package is compiled with gems from the Fania catalog, but rally moves past the obvious – going for some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
Jazzy 45s galore – and a huge dip into the vaults of Prestige Records! This tasty set brings together 18 classics recorded in the heyday of the jazz funk years at Prestige – the late 60s and early 70s, a time when the soul jazz sounds of previous years were being forged into a leaner, ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 LPs
A tight collection of uptempo funk and disco-driven soul tunes – with a selection that goes way past the usual dancefloor favorites! We're not sure how to read the title (which seems to have some sort of "inside take" on black culture in America) so we'll write that off to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
Even better than volume one – and a stellar collection of rare funky grooves!

Rare funk from one of the greatest labels in the business!

LP, Vinyl record album
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP
Classic breaks – all the way through – the kind of sharp funky nuggets that have had a rich new life, thanks to their use in hip hop and club tracks in recent years! This may not be the most underground stuff in the world to those out there who've been digging through crates for funk ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Stax Records turned out plenty of hits in the 60s – but the Memphis label was also a non-stop powerhouse of recording, and cut countless sides that were every bit as great as their hits, but never fully got their due! This collection brings together a huge amount of those gems – 24 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Damn funky work from the west coast scene of the late 60s and early 70s – just the kind of tracks to dispel the idea that too much sun or cannabis might have left the Cali scene a bit weak! Instead, these cuts are right on the money, stone funky throughout, and light years from any sort of ... CD
BGP (UK), Early 80s. New Copy
New York grooves from the start of the 80s – a great batch of tracks that sits nicely in the space between late 70s disco and old school hip hop! Many of these tracks are quite long – extended 12" groovers that mix electro keyboards, slapping basslines, and snapping beats with ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Heavy heavy funk from the Louisiana scene of the late 60s and 1970s – and a great collection that really gets past the dominance of the New Orleans sound! The set moves way past the Crescent City to uncover a wealth of great bits recorded in smaller studios located in Shreveport, Lake ... CD
