RCA/Real Gone, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD
A treasure trove of deep soul material from the mighty Wilson Pickett – four full albums recorded for RCA Records in the 70s, plus a number of singles too! Pickett's probably best known for his early work at Atlantic, but the singer really continued to grow on these records – working ... CD

Ear Music (Germany), 2015. New Copy 2CD
An excellent live set from the mighty Lisa Stansfield – recorded recently, but with all the classic soul we've always loved in her music! The live setting is maybe even warmer and more organic than some of Lisa's studio work – with backings by a funky jazz combo that's right on the ... CD

Warner/Thump, 1980s. New Copy
A heavy help of work from Zapp and Roger Troutman – a package that's overflowing with all the great funky cuts the team put together back in the day! Zapp first emerged with this wicked, bass-heavy sound that was kind of a refinement of earlier funk ensembles, but taken to a leaner style ... CD

Curtom, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roots
Curtom, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of our favorite Curtis Mayfield albums ever – a massive early 70s effort that's filled with wonderful songs all the way through, and quite possibly one of the most perfect realization of the righteous vibe of the early 70s Curtom years! Curtis is in fine form throughout – as a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Get To This
Motor City Hits, 2015. New Copy
Great great great work from LJ Reynolds – a singer we've loved since his 70s work in the Dramatics, and one who's never let us down! Round these parts, Reynolds has had an extra special role as a solo artist whose later recordings have always been big on the steppers scene – and this ... CD

Johnny Otis Show
Capitol (Japan), 1958. New Copy
One of the coolest earliest albums from the great Johnny Otis – a late 50s set that was issued on Capitol's grittier Dig subsidiary – and which features the full range of the Otis revue, captured surprisingly well! Yes, work for other labels at the time often featured Johnny with some ... CD

Esquerita!
Capitol (Japan), 1959. New Copy
Standout early work from the mighty Esquerita – an artist you might initially write off as a Little Richard copycat, but one who also delivers a whole lot more in the end! The groove here is rough R&B, inflected with a touch of early soul – and the piano lines are worth the price ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Come Go With Me
Dot/Universal (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy
A 60s album from the Dell Vikings – but a set that seems to include all the great early work that the group recorded for Dot Records in the 50s – that is, the second version of the group, which included Chuck Jackson for a time! The style here is still plenty raw – with a ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Flamingos
Checker (Japan), 1958. New Copy
Stunning early work by one of the best vocal groups of the 50s – raw harmony sides by The Flamingos, recorded for Chess Records in the years before their smoother later tracks for End! The style here is much closer to the streets – heavy on vocal interplay, with usually just a bit of ... CD

Fresh Idea
Qwest/Warner (Japan), 1983. New Copy
A definite fresh idea from Deco – a duo that features Philip Ingram on keyboards and vocals – with lots of help from Zen Giles on additional vocals and guitar! The pair harmonize together beautifully – with a sound that's as full as most of the groups of the time, but not nearly ... CD

Requestfully Yours
End/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy
Heavenly work by The Flamingos – material recorded in their amazing second period, when they took their already-great harmonies and forged them with a new sense of sound and sophistication! The approach is wonderful throughout – with these sublime backings from Sammy Lowe – who ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Elektra (Japan), 1988. New Copy
Howard Hewett's got a smooth look on the cover, but the album's got a nice degree of crackle all the way through – that snappy, soulful style that Hewett did so well back in the day – working here as almost a one-man powerhouse on production and arrangements too! The tunes are catchy, ... CD

Edsel (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy
CD...$6.99 17.99
Late 70s genius from The O'Jays – proof that the group were still going strong after their initial hit years, especially on the mellower ballad side of the spectrum! So Full Of Love is a masterpiece of modern soul that shows the group singing in a style that would become their dominant mode ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Philadelphia International/Edsel (UK), 1983/1984. New Copy
CD...$6.99 17.99
Later O'Jays from Philly International – 2 albums back to back on one CD! When Will I See You Again is the kind of record that shows that the group never lost their touch! The set sparkles beautifully from the very first note – and the trio hit a warm, smooth groove that's a perfect ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Philadelphia International/Right Stuff, 1980/1982. New Copy 2CDs
CD...$6.99 17.99
We know what you're thinking: "These guys were best in the 70s." Hold that thought for a moment and check out these great albums – because unlike a lot of their other chart-topping contemporaries from 1972 and 1973, the O'Jays actually continued to mature as a group, and managed ... CD

Philadelphia International/Demon (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy
CD...$6.99 17.99
Classic work from the second great Philly phase of the O'Jays' career! In 1976, the O'Jays re-signed to the Philly International label – thus kicking off their second stretch with Gamble and Huff, and burning harder than ever with a really righteous groove! The 2 albums in this package show ... CD

Jewel/Fuel, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
CD...$5.99 11.98
Way more than just an "introduction" to the work of Ted Taylor – a great little collection of Ted's best work for the Jewel and Ronn record labels, put together with a real focus on the best numbers from these sometimes varied years in Taylor's career! During the late 60s and early ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fantasy, 1970s. New Copy
One of the greatest sides of The Blackbyrds' music – their mellower, more chilled-out tunes – all tracks that we like almost as much as their funkier classics! Although the combo first earned their name for upbeat, sharp-edged funky fusion, they also had a wonderful way with a laidback ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fantasy, 1988. Near Mint-
Juan Atkins and his Cybotron crew lay down this classic Detroit electro track, with 5 mixes to choose from! 12-inch, Vinyl record
