De-Lite/Solid (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Were there ever 2 words that improved the qualities of each other than "roller" and "disco"? We think not, and this album's more than proof of that! Most of this set is more straight disco than the "roller" version implied by the title – but a few of the best ... CD
Fat Possum, 2017. New Copy
The first album in decades from Memphis soul legend Don Bryant – a singer who hardly even gave us any recordings back when he was in his prime! Don was one of the lesser lights at the famous Hi Records – not as successful as Ann Peebles or Al Green, but steeped in the same wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Get On Down, 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Funky club grooves from the never-miss team of Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael! The cut's one of the best from the hard-to-find Bumblebee Unlimited album on RCA – and it's offered here in 2 versions, a 10 minute long mix by John Morales and Frank Trimarco, and a 6 minute remix version by ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fat Possum, 2017. New Copy
The first album in decades from Memphis soul legend Don Bryant – a singer who hardly even gave us any recordings back when he was in his prime! Don was one of the lesser lights at the famous Hi Records – not as successful as Ann Peebles or Al Green, but steeped in the same wonderful ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
The "exotic" in the title is certainly well-placed – as many of these tracks take a familiar instrument, and use it in a slightly unusual way – a saxophone, piano, electric guitar, or something else – often set to grooves that start out in an R&B, early rock, or jazz- ... CD
Soul Junction (UK), 1970s. New Copy
There was actually more than one group working under the name of The Holidays during the golden years of soul music in Detroit – but given the strength of the tracks on this set, this trio may well have been one of the best! You might know another Holidays from Northern Soul 60s fame – ... CD
Nassau Funk
Alston/Playback, Early 70s. New Copy
Fantastic funk from Beginning Of The End – one of the coolest, grooviest, most unique funk groups of the 70s – and one who've got a real criss-crossing of styles in their sound! As you'd guess from the title, these guys hail from Nassau, in the Bahamas – but their sound is hardly ... CD
Uni/Playback, 1969. New Copy
Double dose of heavy soul by this under-recorded late 60s combo – originally known as The Ikettes before splitting with Ike Turner and becoming The Mirettes! They're a truly storming group, with a sound that's a lot heavier than a lot of the sweeter girl groups from earlier years. The girls ... CD
Young & Restless
All Platinum/Expansion (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic sweet soul album – and one of our favorite records ever from the New Jersey soul empire of All-Platinum Records! The set's got a spacey soul sound that's really wonderful – quite different than some of the clubbier modes that other female singers were using at the time ... LP, Vinyl record album
De-Lite/Expansion (UK), 1979. New Copy
A disco dazzler from the glory days of the De-Lite Records scene – served up here by a group who really hit all the best sort of groove's you'd expect from that legendary imprint! The album's a disco record, sure – but it's also got the deeper roots that come from the De-Lite ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
An incredible legacy of funk – from a group who were easily one of the tightest, sharpest acts in the mainstream soul scene of the 70s! BT Express are a combo who pre-date disco, and whose grooves went a long way towards forging the blueprint for that mid 70s movement – but their music ... CD
Vigor/Octave (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Funky madness from the legendary Rhythm Makers – a dancefloor combo with a really incredible groove! The group has an approach that's a lot like Kool & The Gang at their best, or like some of the best mid 70s albums by the Kay Gees or Fatback – lots of bass at the bottom, very ... CD
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy CD & Book
An artist you might not know at all – but one you'll be digging plenty after hearing this wonderful set! Richard Marks is a guitarist and singer with a very funky, very gritty sound – really right up there with the best of the funky 45 underground of the time – which makes this ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy
CD...$6.99 17.98
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that ... CD
TSG (Japan), 1976. New Copy
CD...$6.99 16.98
Badass funk from this obscure 70s band – one who play here with a really wicked edge to their groove! At some level, the sound is right up there with some of the bigger ensemble funk acts of the time – particularly that Mercury Records generation who were tightening things up from the ... CD
REG Associates (Japan), 1976. New Copy
CD...$6.99 16.98
A rare little set from The Meters – recorded in their home turf of New Orleans in the mid 70s, but with a groove that's as raw as their Josie Records albums of the 60s! The vibe here is a great change from the polished production the group were getting over at Warner Brothers – and the ... CD
Pama (Japan), 1968. New Copy
CD...$6.99 20.98
One of the heaviest albums ever made – and a monstrous bit of organ funk that never gets old! The Mohawks were a one-off studio group led by arranger/keyboardist Alan Hawkshaw (the "hawk" in the Mohawk name), and they're working here in a mad London mix of beat group grooving, soul ... CD
Ella Washington
Sound Stage 7/P&C, 1969. New Copy
CD...$5.99 12.99
A rare set of deep deep deep soul vocals by one of the best singers on the Sound Stage 7 label – Ella Washington's self-titled gem from 1969! Ella's vocals are as great as those of the soul superstar divas of the day, and she's backed by a beautifully tight band – in a style that ... CD
RCA/Reel Music, 1973. New Copy
CD...$5.99 12.99
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the ... CD
RCA/Funkstone (Italy), 1980. New Copy
A fantastic funky set from the Philly scene of the 70s – a record that was maybe a few years late to get the kind of appreciation it deserved – but one with a quality level that stands up wonderfully over the years! Thomas Buck Nasty is both the name of the group and the lead singer ... CD
