Warner, 1984. New Copy 3CDs/DVD (reissue)
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly ... CD
Split Decision Band
Now Again, Early 80s. New Copy
An overlooked treasure from Split Decision Band – a group whose one single issued back in the day has gone onto become a sought-after classic with funk and soul collectors! And yet besides that one famous single, these guys actually have a lot more to offer – an incredibly well-develope ... CD
Sensuous Black Man
Kent/Dolemite, Early 70s. New Copy
Rudy Ray Moore cut some mighty raunchy records in his time – but this one may well the be the raunchiest, and maybe the funkiest too! The album's an instruction of "the proper way to make love to a lady" – but done in true Rudy Ray style, with very down-to-earth language that ... CD
Warner, 1984. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
One of the most romping tunes ever recorded by Prince – the kind of cut that was an instant dancefloor stormer back in the day, and still sounds mighty groovy all these many years later! The song is featured here in it's very extended version – and is backed by the fantastic non-LP cut ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
One of our favorite tracks ever from Prince – an instantly funky, instantly catchy tune that never fails to blow us away with its dexterity! The jam sounds great, even after all these years – and it's backed by a non-LP cut, "Another Lonely Christmas" – in which Prince ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Warner, 1984. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A great release of the song that really put Prince over the top – a song that got him maybe more play on rock and pop stations than he was ever getting on soul radio – and which for years became an anthem for folks who never would have touched his music in years before! The version ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
One of Prince's biggest tunes ever – and a track that still sounds surprisingly great to our ears these days – funky, chunky, and completely catchy – with a hook that shouldn't go over so well, but really sends the tune home time and time again! "17 Days" is great too ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Walking The Dog
Stax, 1963. New Copy (reissue)
A key early moment for Memphis soul legend Rufus Thomas – a singer who'd already been working and recording on the scene for about a decade, but who finally got some national attention with this raw soul album for Stax! The set's got all the sharp, hard Stax approach in the grooves – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Men
Stax, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best-ever albums by this incredible soul duo! Sam & Dave may have been one of the bigger names on the 60s scene, but they also had a sheer raw soul approach that blew away most of their contemporaries – a way of trading vocal lines then combining them that infused their songs ... LP, Vinyl record album
King & Queen (180 gram gold vinyl pressing)
Stax, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A legendary collaboration between Otis Redding and Carla Thomas – the former of whom was definitely the king of the Memphis soul scene at the time of the record's release, and the latter of whom was certainly going for the title of queen with her power on the record! Carla here is a lot more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Green Onions
Stax, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
A legendary album of Memphis soul – and a full length set that helped redefine the sound of instrumental music in the 60s! The record's a monumental follow-up to Booker T & The MGs' huge hit single "Green Onions" – an extremely seductive organ-based instrumental that the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Essential, 2017. New Copy
Latimore looks surprisingly great after all these years – and he sounds surprisingly great, too – still very much possessed of that fantastically deep voice that made his 70s soul records so wonderful – but turned here towards a more jazz-based setting! We'll be honest in saying ... CD
Drive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy
Massive Miami grooves from Robert "Rocky" Mizell – not one of the Mizell brothers from the west coast, but a Florida artist with a sound that's equally nice! The album's the only one we've ever seen from Rocky, and it's got a sweet TK Records groove all the way through – ... CD
Nobody But You
Jin/Mississippi, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Great work from Little Bob – aka Lil Bob, aka Camille Bob – a New Orleans soul singer with a nicely funky edge! The album's almost got more of a mid 60s James Brown inspiration than some of Bob's southern contemporaries – with backing from the super-tight Lollipops, who really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Predictions
Drive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy
Gypsy Lane were produced here by Jacques Morali, of Village People fame – but don't hold that against them, as the set's got a deeper vibe than you might expect! The group seem pretty tight on their own already – and work more as a tight ensemble funk group than the kind of disco ... CD
Dancin' In My Feet
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy
The only album we've ever seen from the lovely Laura Taylor – an obscure set recorded for the TK Records subsidiary of Good Sounds – with just the sort of soaring disco groove you might expect! Laura handled most of the arrangements herself, and also wrote most of the tunes – ... CD
