Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
That's a young Sly Stone on the cover – looking mighty slick, but not nearly as flashy as during the years of his bigger funk fame – which kind of sums up the excellent sound of this set! The collection features the earliest years of Sly Stone on record – a time long before The ... CD

Motown/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy

Stax (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy

A heady gumbo indeed – and a set that's way more than just the usual New Orleans classics – as you'll hear from the very first note of the collection! There's definitely some of the usual rolling soul sounds you'd expect from a Crescent City compilation – but there's also some ... CD

Westbound (UK), 1978. New Copy
A sweet step forward for the mighty Caesar Frazier – an artist you might know more as a Hammond organist from his earlier albums as a leader – but one who steps out here as a soul singer with a mighty sweet groove! The record's way more than just a quick shift to disco for some cash ... CD

Westbound (UK), 1973/1977. New Copy
The Detroit Emeralds' last two albums for Westbound – back to back on a single CD! I'm In Love With You is maybe our favorite album by this Detroit soul group. Why? Well maybe it's because of the great lime-green suits they're wearing on the cover, but probably because they've really got ... CD
