London/Abkco (Japan), 1968. New Copy 2 SACD & Flexidisc
One of the greatest albums ever from The Rolling Stones – a set that still draws on all the bluesy roots of their best 60s material, yet which also shows a sharper, nastier edge as well! The album shows the tremendous sense of focus and power the Stones had in this crucial late 60s stretch ... CD
Chrysalis/Esoteric (UK), 1975. New Copy 3CD
A hugely expanded version of this record – with two and a half CD's worth of unreleased material! The core record is quite an unusual moment for Procol Harum – still riding strong here onto their ninth album as a group – but also bringing in the legendary production team of ... CD

Dunham/Daptone, 2016. New Copy
The great Charles Bradley left this planet all too soon – and although we've got this final album of music to enjoy, it's only a partial consolation for Bradley's early departure! The set's maybe a bit like some of the albums of Otis Redding material that were issued after his passing – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
The hippest funky jazz from the start of the 70s – music that takes all the pride, power, triumph, and challenge of the 60s – and focuses into a bold new energy for a young generation! The work here draws equally from jazz and soul, with lots of other global influences coming into play ... CD

Spice Of Life
Cadet, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing batch of sophisticated soul tracks – and a favorite with the righteous groove scene!

RCA/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A genius bit of work from the legendary Weldon Irvine – a mightily righteous effort that more than lives up to its heady title and cover!

Warner/Groove Line Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs

Odeon/Cornbread, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Rare early work from the great Marcos Valle – and one of his first-ever albums!

LP, Vinyl record album
Apple, 1968. New Copy 4LP (reissue)
The Beatles at their late best – on a self-titled set that's been long immortalized as The White Album!

Ace/Westbound (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
Deep deep funk from the legendary Westbound label – the important early home to Ohio Players and Funkadelic, but also host to some other great funky groups too! In keeping with the name, the cuts here focus on the kind of Westbound tracks that have great drum breaks in their groove – ... CD

Stax/Craft, 1968. New Copy 5CD
1968 was the world of revolution around the world – and to our music-trained ears, one of the greatest revolutions occurred at the legendary Stax Records! Before that year, the label had been working with Atlantic Records – who totally screwed them, and took away all their catalog ... CD
Prestige/Craft, 1964. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Terry Callier's first album – recorded in 1964 when he was a wee teen hanging around Chicago's folk scene! As the title indicates, the album's definitely got a folk-styled sound – but also as the "new" implies, it's got a sound all it's own, fresh and free – and that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elemental, 1983. New Copy Gatefold
We completely love the music of Woody Shaw – but unfortunately, the legendary trumpeter left this planet way too soon, and only gave us about 20 years of recordings!

Concord/Craft, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel – one that really keeps the spirit of the "jukebox" in the title! The tunes here are all upbeat, and often share a lot with R&B material of the 50s – especially the vocal group numbers, which often echo more secular modes of early ... CD
Dust To Digital, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD, DVD & Book

Iron Mountain Analog Research/Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold

C89 (3CD set)
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 3 CDs

Vocalion (UK), 2018. New Copy

Poeira Zine (Brazil), 2018. New Copy

As such, street-level communication was the way that most folks found out about the DJs and events tied to ... Book
Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2018. New Copy
A treasure trove of studio, performance, and more intimate behind the scenes photos of Prince from early in his career!

Anthology Editions, 2018. New Copy
A fantastic look at the European sound library scene of the 60s and 70s – one that goes way past some of the simpler cover art books that have been around over the years – to offer up details on individual labels, histories of the music, and a great look at key musicians as well! Don't ... Book
Gearbox (UK), New Item
