Epic/FTG, 1982. New Copy
A sweet 80s groover from KC and his Sunshine Band – a set that's got the group sounding a lot different than during their Miami hit years of the 70s – but still every bit as groovy! The style is more 80s funk than before – a bit more emphasis on the keyboards, and basslines that ... CD

Galaxy/Rush Hour (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy
One of the strangest, most offbeat bits of 80s funk you'll ever here – and a record that's pretty darn groovy as well! Sumy hails from Surinam, and recorded this unique criss-crossing of styles in the early 80s – with a vibe that's very much in keeping with his look on the cover, and a ... CD

Tommy Stewart
Luv N' Haight, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Funky genius from the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – the one and only album recorded by Tommy Stewart, a huge force in some of the greatest club tracks of the south, including the massive Spirit Of Atlanta album! The record's a stone winner all the way through – filled with upbeat, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Galaxy
MCA/Avenue, 1977. New Copy
A massive jammer from War – and a record that brought the group to a whole new generation of listeners – as well as a good number of later fans who discovered some of these jams in the club! The groove here isn't disco, but this tightening up of War's sweet jamming vibe – almost ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Avco/Victor (Japan), 1975. New Copy
This is it! The record that helped put disco over in a huge way, with a sound that would go on to be heavily imitated for years to come. Sweeping disco production from Hugo & Luigi arranged and conducted by Van McCoy, already a studio mainstay by this point, coupled with a set of accessible ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
United Artists/Avenue, 1971. New Copy
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all ... CD

War Live!
United Artists/Avenue, 1973. New Copy 2CD
War live, a perfect step forward – especially given that the group had already been so jamming on all their previous work in the studio! This classic double-length set may well be one of the best soul live albums of the 70s – right up there with similar 2LP packages from Curtis ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
H&L/Victor (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Maybe one of the last early "classic" albums from The Stylistics – a record that still preserves the fragile harmonies of their best work at moments, and avoids most of the pitfalls of their late 70s mis-steps! Van McCoy handled arrangements here – and he's mostly in a mode ... CD

Eric Burdon Declares War
MGM/Avenue, 1970. New Copy
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals! We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook ... CD

Irma Thomas Sings
Bandy/Change, 1960s. New Copy (reissue)
A cool collection of early work by Irma Thomas – some of the best tracks from her initial years on the Crescent City scene! Most of the numbers were written by Aaron Neville, with a sound that certainly indicates his influence – and Irma's vocals have a crackling quality that's pretty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Special Edition
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1980. New Copy
Classic funky soul from Five Special – tightly crafted throughout, and clearly with an eye on the charts – but also the kind of work that plays nicely on the dancefloor too! The record's got a groove that fits in nicely with some of the lesser-remembered groovers on Elektra at the time ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Golden Touch
Whitfield/Wounded Bird, 1980. New Copy
A well-rounded little set from Rose Royce – one that has the group hitting equally on uptempo funky tracks and chilled-out mellower numbers – the latter of which feature plenty of sweet moogy touches, in the group's best mode! There are standout moments, but overall the album has more ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Special Touch
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy
Crackin definitely have a special touch on this 70s set – a way of mixing together funk, soul, and jazz influences – all in a groove that's every bit as tight as contemporaries like Rufus or Average White Band, even though Crackin never reached the heights that they did! The core ... CD

Tomorrow's Hits
Vee Jay, Late 50s. Very Good
An excellent collection of rare early soul on Vee Jay – with tracks by The Sheppards, Rod Bernard, Ray Whitley, Bill Allen & Trio, The Dukays, Wade Flemons, Grover Mitchell, Norman Charles, and others! LP, Vinyl record album

Dance With Me/Hello Stranger
Henry Street, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the earliest singles on the classic Henry Street label – with 2 great tracks back to back! "Dance With Me" is an echoey club number with some surprisingly strong guitar – set next to lead vocals that must have sounded great in an older disco! "Hello Stranger" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Hodisk, 1981. Near Mint-

Westbound (UK), 1972. Used
Mindblowing funk from The Ohio Players – the group's debut album for Westbound Records, and a landmark batch of tracks that never gets old! The sound here really has the group stretching out a lot – working on tunes that are extended, but never as overindulgent as their labelmates ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia (UK), 1976/1977/1979. Used 3CD
Three seminal late 70s albums from Bobby Womack – all wrapped up in a single package! Home Is Where The Heart Is is an exceptional album from Bobby Womack's years at Columbia Records – and a record that brings together smooth and roosty styles wonderfully! When Womack moved to ... CD
