Mainstream/Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
Fantastic soul from Mainstream Records – an imprint that's normally best-known for their work in the field of jazz, but a label that also cut some killer soul singles in the early 70s! Mainstream soul artists almost never got a chance to record a full-length album – so over the years, ... CD
Atlantic/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Two of the hippest soul artists of the late 60s – coming together here for an incredible collection of work! Bobby Womack would explode into huge fame as a star in his own right at the end of the decade – but at the time of these recordings, he was mostly getting play as a songwriter ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
The Platters might have been the kings of the late night ballad, thanks to the magical voice of Tony Williams – but they could also kick it up a few notches at the right time too, and match the energy of their more romping 50s R&B contemporaries! This set brings together 30 tracks that ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1965. New Copy 2CD
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles ... CD
Sony, Mid 80s/2017. New Copy
Billy Ocean sums up his roots, his early career, and his influences – in a set that's half new recordings, and half older classics from his first years on record! The set begins with "influence and inspiration" – great new recordings from Billy that feature his fresh takes on ... CD
Glades/Get On Down, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
"Africano" is one of the coolest cuts ever from the great Timmy Thomas – a tribal-styled groover, complete with congas to reference the title, and this wicked bassline that's almost blacksploitation in nature! Riffing guitars really set up the groove, and there's lots of cool ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Kent/Dolemite, Early 70s. New Copy
Rudy Ray Moore flies the friendly skies – and turns out one of his best records of the 70s! The set is easily one of the tightest albums from Rudy's classic years – and uses a fair bit of musical backings beneath his very raunchy comedy – in ways that are sometimes funky, but ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1988. New Copy 2CD
Solo work from Apollonia – working here past her time with both Apollonia 6 and her association with Prince – but still showing an equally strong talent for catchy 80s pop! The music is handled by a host of producers, and most numbers are in a beat-heavy mode that follows on her ... CD
Ruth Brown '65
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy
A very unusual setting for the legendary Ruth Brown – the singer who first rose to fame singing raw-edged R&B tracks for Atlantic Records in the 50s – but who works here in a much jazzier mode overall! The set features backings from Peter Matz – who often accompanied the ... CD
Doin It!!!!
Now Again, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Rare 70s funky soul from The Equatics – just the kind of record that keeps us digging and still excited after all these years – resurrected by the like minded diggers at Now Again! You know the kind of album we're talking about, the ones you come across with enigmatic cover art, no ... LP, Vinyl record album
On The Rocks
Peoples Potential, Early 80s. New Copy
Early 80s underground soul from Dwight Sykes and his Jahari Band – a combo that played in and around the Kalamazoo scene, but never broke big at all on a national level! There's a surprisingly tight quality to the cuts here – as Dwight works with a female vocal trio on some numbers, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maskeraad
Peoples Potential, Late 80s. New Copy
Some of the most unique 80s soul you'll ever hope to hear – recorded by Estonian singer Maryne E Coote, who's also known as the mother of Uku Kuut – and who also bills herself on the cover as a private detective too! The work here is all in English, unlike some of Coote's other ... LP, Vinyl record album
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy
Killer tracks from legendary percussionist Ralph MacDonald – an artist who played on countless jazz, soul, and funk sessions of the 70s – but really came into his own with a handful of late 70s recordings for the TK Records label! The best of those tracks are wonderfully compiled here ... CD
Arian
Favorite (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Arian's perm on the cover gives you a hint of how the set might sound – and the whole thing is maybe even better than you might think! The album's an unusual soul set from early 80s Yugoslavia – with vocals that are partly in English, and a sound that's heavy on the same kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
One of the hippest, heaviest labels in the One-Der-Ful family of record companies from the Chicago scene – home to some incredible work that never even saw the light of day back in the 70s! The Midas touch is certainly apparent here – as there's instant gold from the very first track ... CD
Polydor, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever – and also one of his deepest, too! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Payback
Polydor, 1973. New Copy
CD...$4.99 11.98
A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s! It all comes together on this one – funk, soul, politics, and production – and the record is still one of the clearest examples of James Brown's genius that you'll ever find! Recorded during the same ... CD
Best Of Con Funk Shun
Mercury, Late 70s. New Copy
An overstuffed collection of greatness from Con Funk Shun – key tracks from the group's mighty run on Mercury Records – where they took a homegrown funk style, and sharpened it to a razor-sharp point! The tunes here are a mix of bassy bottom groovers and some of the group's mellower ... CD
Motown, 1966. New Copy 2CD
One of the biggest charting albums by The Supremes – and one of the best, too! The girls are opening it up a bit here – getting in on some of The Miracles Go Go action of the period, and laying down tunes that have a bit more of a northern soul vibe – relying a bit more on a ... CD
Abkco, 1950s-Mid 60s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold
A massive collection of work by the great Sam Cooke – featuring 30 tunes in all, and spanning the range of his full career – from his early roots in gospel music, to the incredibly powerful soul tunes he cut shortly before his untimely death.
