Hidden Stash
Athens Of The North (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy

New Orleans Piano
Atlantic, 1949/1953. New Copy (reissue)
Essential New Orleans piano from Professor Longhair – an artist who was neither a professor, nor a man with much hair! The chrome-domed pianist had a huge influence on the sound of New Orleans R&B and soul to come – as he played in a triplet-heavy way that was rooted in blues, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s. New Copy
Not the usual vocal group you might guess from the cover – and instead a very cool postwar combo who both play and sing – in a mode that's a great bridge between earlier jazz styles and some of the doo wop modes to come! A few years earlier, and these guys might have sounded like the ... CD

Modern/Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy
Early work from the great Lil Greenwood – a singer who ended out the 50s with a key role in the Duke Ellington band – but one who started the decade with a great run of jump blues and jazz singles for the Modern and Federal Records labels! Greenwood's got a range and sophistication ... CD

Casual Look
Flip/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
The Six Teens were a pretty unique group in 50s R&B – a sextet of singers that was half gals, half guys – and who did a really great job of shifting back and forth between both genders! Unlike pop groups of this nature, who could often sound way too sweet in a blend of male and ... CD

King/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
We love Freddy King during these early years of his career – when the blend of his heavy electric guitar was a perfect match for the soulful style of recording used by the King/Federal Records label! There's a raw power to these tracks that's undeniable – but also a sense of clarity ... CD

Buddah/Fever Dream, 1975. New Copy
The first full album cut by The Trammps – and a landmark bit of Philly club sounds! The group had already been grooving the burgeoning east coast disco scene for years, which is why the album's called The Legendary Zing Album (the group's version of "Zing Went The Strings Of My ... CD

RCA/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
A rock-solid run of hits from The Pointer Sisters – all from that second stage of the girls career, when they were working with producer Richard Perry, and hitting heights they only could have dreamed of a few years before! Perry found a way of refining and focusing the energy of the trio ... CD

King/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy
Some of the most soulful sounds of the 50s – served up here by an artist who was a huge influence on the sound of James Brown! Little Willie John sprung into the King Records studios of the mid 50s as a talent who was already way more towering than his "little" stature might ... CD

Modern/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
A huge discovery in vocal group material from the 50s – served up in this excellent series of tracks from the vaults of LA's Modern Records label! Most folks associate the early vocal group sounds with the east coast or Chicago scenes of the postwar years – but there was also plenty of ... CD

Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy
Joe Lutcher's the brother of famous postwar singer Nellie Lutcher – but is also a hell of a talent on his own, as you'll discover on this set of rare recordings for the late 40s Modern Records label! Only a handful of these tracks were issued at the time, and along with a wealth of ... CD

Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Way more than milestones here – as the set brings together a sweet collection of early soul numbers – including a few cuts that have a nicely raw and bluesy vibe! There's not really any hits here – and instead, the music stands as a cool compilation of that moment when soul music ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD
Two funky soul classics from Brick – back to back on a single CD! First up is the album Good High – a killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta ... CD

Kent/Mainstream (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
A huge array of soul tracks from the Mainstream label – an imprint that was probably best known for its jazz work of the early 70s, and as the launching pad for a few key rock groups – but one who also cut some killer soul tracks in the best New York and Philly styles of the period! ... CD

RCA/Expansion (UK), 1977. New Copy
An overlooked late 70s moment from the great Garland Green – a set that's quite different than his earlier Chicago soul – thanks to production from Leon Haywood in a sweet west coast mode! The record's got an easygoing vibe that really fits the cover – a mix of mellow and ... CD
