Elektra/Get On Down, 1994. 2LP (reissue)
LP ... On December 6, 2019
Not the famous debut album from Deee-Lite, but a killer set of grooves that has the trio very much at the height of their powers! So many folks remember these guys as a bigger pop act, they tend to forget how much they brought back to dance music – a real embrace of warmer elements from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rapster/BBE (UK), Late 70s. 3LP & CD
LP ... On January 17, 2020
The genius of Roy Ayers knows no end – and as this set of unreleased work from the 70s proves, Roy was always working at top form back in the day – even above and beyond his classic albums from the time! The grooves here are tremendous – funky, soulful, jazzy, and every bit as ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), Late 70s. 2LP & CD
LP ... On January 17, 2020
It's like a dream come true – 13 previously unissued recordings by Roy Ayers, all from the height of his glory years on Polydor!

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s.
LP ... About December 6, 2019
... LP, Vinyl record album
Salsoul/Past Due, 1982. (reissue)
LP ... About December 7, 2019
A jamming little project from dancefloor maestro Richie Weeks – early 80s club tracks, done with a sweetly soulful approach! The music's still as heavy on the bass as other Salsoul work from the time, but there's a warmer approach to the vocals overall – a style that's as concerned ... LP, Vinyl record album
Salsoul/Past Due, 1983.
LP ... About December 7, 2019
Maestro Richie Weeks is at the helm of this sweet set of early 80s groovers – funky club in the best second chapter mode of the Salsoul label – served up with a sound that's lean and mean throughout! We're not sure who the "Co" is, since Richie sings, plays keyboards, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cairo/Mississippi, 1960s/Early 70s. 2LP
LP ... About November 15, 2019 (delayed)
A beautiful collection of vintage soul music – the latest crowning achievement in the Cairo series from Mississippi Records – and, like the rest, an excellent combination of classics and little known gems from the golden years!

Cairo, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. 2LP
LP ... About November 15, 2019 (delayed)
A great little set of rare soul music – served up by the Cairo imprint of Mississippi Records – and done with a very similar approach to their other reissues of folk, blues, and world music! The set focuses in on rootsier sounds, especially from the 60s – with lots of deep soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1972. (reissue)
LP ... About November 29, 2019
A great solo album by this member of Chairmen of the Board – done with some wicked Holland Dozier Holland production, at a level that almost makes Johnson sound heavier here than in his work with his more famous group! The vocals have that same sort of crazy pinched sound that he had with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Samuel Jonathan Johnson

My Music
Columbia/Be With (UK), 1978. (reissue)
LP ... About December 5, 2019
One of our favorite 70s soul records ever – and a totally unique set as well! To our ears, Samuel Jonathan Johnson belongs in the company of Roy Ayers, Norman Connors, and other spiritual soul heavyweights – even though he only ever cut this one album for Columbia Records back in 1978! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tidal Waves, 1971.
LP ... About November 15, 2019 (delayed)
An insane treat for any fan of the early years of the P-Funk empire – that time when George Clinton and crew were taking in plenty of trippy influences from the heady Detroit scene of the time – and fusing it all into their own really unique blend of soul! The set features the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Etta James

Queen Of Soul
Argo/Elemental (Spain), Early 60s. (reissue)
LP ... On December 6, 2019
Queen of Soul is right! Heck, on these early albums, Etta practically invented soul – or at least invented a deep soul style of singing that would be taken up by countless other female singers during the 60s, but rarely matched with this kind of brilliance. Straight up beatiful stuff! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
ORG, 1972. (reissue)
LP ... On November 29, 2019
The funky rock & soul blast of a self-titled set from The Velvert Turner Group – with some pummeling, post-Hendrix fuzz and vocal inflections, but also some big left turns from that vibe into trippy psychedelic soul! It's works really well, particularly with such a killer group backing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atco/Get On Down, 1968. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On November 29, 2019
Seminal work from Dr John – one of his key late 60s albums that set the world on fire at the time – and which still stand as some of the doctor's greatest achievements! The approach here is a fantastic abstraction of older New Orleans roots – not nearly as rigid as in some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Now Again, 1969.

Warner, 1982. 10LPs/DVD
LP ... On November 29, 2019

Liston/P-Vine (Japan), 1983. (reissue)
LP ... About December 1, 2019
A great set of mellow soul from the start of the 80s – not the Positive Force of "We Got The Funk" fame, but a different groove that has a nicely smooth groove! The style here is halfway between soul and AOR, but handled with an indie charm that really keeps things compelling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stax/Craft, 1968.
LP ... On December 6, 2019
Killer soul from Johnnie Taylor, and really his first major LP! The record was Johnnie's second for Stax – and although the first one was good, this was the record that really had Johnnie hitting that funky bluesy sound that became his trademark into the 70s. The title cut – "Who' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Enterprise/Craft, 1971.
LP ... On December 6, 2019
Probably the best-remembered solo album from David Porter – one half of the famous Hayes/Porter team that ruled Stax Records in the 60s, although not as successful as an artist on his own as Isaac Hayes! Porter's style is a lot more adventurous – and this album's a wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Martin

Strawberry Soul
Return To Analog (Canada), Early 70s. (reissue)
LP ... About December 6, 2019
One of those lost funk classics that you'll never find in the original!

King Hannibal

Truth
Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. (reissue)
LP ... About November 15, 2019 (delayed)
Mad funky soul from King Hannibal – a down and dirty singer from the Atlanta scene of the 70s! The notes on the back say "He's black, he's proud, he's arrogant – the combination is powerful" – and we've gotta say that we agree with that assessment, because King really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gift Of Dreams

Mandroid
Jam Power/Everland (Austria), (reissue)
LP ... About November 1, 2019 (delayed)
The rare second album from Gift Of Dreams – and that's saying a lot, because their debut was already pretty darn rare! This set follows strongly in the mode of that classic – tight boogie soul with a great 80s vibe – lots of basslines, plenty of keyboards, and beats that crackle ... LP, Vinyl record album
Invictus, 1971. (reissue)
LP ... About October 25, 2019 (delayed)
A great album by one of lost groups on the Invictus label! Glass House were a stellar male/female vocal group with a good deep soul sound – very much in the spirit of other Invictus albums of the era, with a tremendous feel for down home, gritty soul but executed with the smooth HDH vibe ...

Commercial/Miles Away (UK), 1978. (reissue)
LP ... About September 13, 2019 (delayed)
A rare soul treasure from the duo of Estrus and Lester Patterson – a pair who recorded in virtual obscurity during the late 70s, but managed to come across with the strengths of the bigger soul acts of the time! The album was recorded in Nashville and Fort Wayne, Indiana – but has a ... LP, Vinyl record album

LP ... On November 29, 2019
One of the best soul collaborations ever! Fela and Roy Ayers team up for this whopping album that brings together the best sides of these monster soul talents of the 70s!

Bluesway/Elemental (Spain), 1969. (reissue)
LP ... On December 6, 2019
We're not normally fans of this sort of crossover stoner 60s blues session – but this is a great one, with incredibly spare production, and a bubbling potful of doped-up guitar licks and simmering organ parts. There's a very rootsy feel – similar to an early afternoon set at Monterey ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tompkins Square, Late 60s/Early 70s.
LP ... On December 13, 2019
A really fantastic collection of rare gospel music – one that's put together with a fair bit of thought, and a great deal of love – even more than most other collections of the music that we usually get our hands on! The selection of songs is as thoughtful as the long, well-crafted ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lyman Woodard Organization

Essential stuff, whether you're a fan of roots reggae, Jamaican soul or the otherworldly antics of the Upsetter!
