Avenue, 1973. New Copy
War delivers the word, and a whole lot more as well – that amazing blend of styles that always made the group way more than just the sum of its parts! The classic groove is very firmly in place here – a great style that mixes jazz funk with a freer jamming style borrowed from Latin ... CD

Outlaw
RCA/Avenue, 1982. New Copy
A sweet snapping groove from War – a set that has the group picking up a bit more boogie in their bounce than before, but at a level that helps keep their funk fresh for a whole new generation! The album's a heck of a lot warmer and more live than most of their contemporaries – and ... CD

Blue Note/Avenue, 1977. New Copy
Sweet jazzy work from War – a record that has them stretching things out a bit from before, and finding new ways to groove for the second half of the 70s! All the core elements are still firmly in place – that sublime blend of jazz, soul, funk, and Latin elements – but there's a ... CD

War
United Artists/Avenue, 1971. New Copy
A wonderful first solo album from War – a set that has them breaking away from their early partnership with singer Eric Burdon – and finding an even better groove in the process! The vibe here is hipper, and even more righteous than before – some of those great jazz currents on ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
United Artists/Avenue, 1975. New Copy
A huge moment for War – maybe the group's biggest album of the 70s, but a set that still has them holding onto everything that makes the great! Like Earth Wind & Fire at their best, War have this way of staying strong and righteous, while still able to hit a hook – jamming one ... CD

Motown/Kent (UK), 1969. New Copy
A never-heard album from this excellent Detroit vocal group – recorded for Motown at the end of the 60s, but appearing here for the first time ever – and compiled with lots of bonus tracks from the vaults! The Fantastic Four never hit the bigger heights of some of the big Motown male ... CD

Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Mighty sounds from a legendary Detroit soul producer – the great Dave Hamilton, a talent who issued a number of key singles back in the day, but who's left behind an even larger legacy of excellent unreleased work! This collection draws from both sides of that spectrum – and features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chance For Hope
TSOB/Funky Delicacies, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
An excellent soulful disco album on the great TSOB label! Drummer, producer and band leader Norvell Holmes' name isn't likely to ring a bell for even hardcore 80s groove and disco fans, but this is an amazingly great album of modern soul with a polished feel to both the club cuts and mellower ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arista/Cherry Red (UK), 1978. New Copy
Warm and wonderful work from Phyllis Hyman – a set that's a lot more mainstream soul than her music of a few years before, but she delivers it with a strong commitment to the more complicated styles of her roots! The sound here is full and proud – a nice extension of the work that ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Omnivore, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A short but great legacy in soul music – served up here in a handful of recordings done for Atlantic Records and Warner's Loma label at the end of the 60s – most of which have never been released before! Singer Carl Hall is an artist that most people know from his work on the musical ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
United Artists/Avenue, 1971. New Copy
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all ... CD

War Live!
United Artists/Avenue, 1973. New Copy 2CD
War live, a perfect step forward – especially given that the group had already been so jamming on all their previous work in the studio! This classic double-length set may well be one of the best soul live albums of the 70s – right up there with similar 2LP packages from Curtis ... CD

Eric Burdon Declares War
MGM/Avenue, 1970. New Copy
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals! We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Great work from soul singer Ronnie Jones – an artist who was born in the US, but cut all of this work in the swinging London scene of the 60s – where he was obviously a very big addition to the mod scene! Ronnie's got a voice that's capable of a great range when needed, but which can ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Epic, Mid 70s. New Copy
Classic work from Brick – a group who went onto become surprisingly successful during the 70s with a hot Atlanta blend of funky soul and uptempo club grooves. The group has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tommy Stewart
Luv N' Haight, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Funky genius from the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – the one and only album recorded by Tommy Stewart, a huge force in some of the greatest club tracks of the south, including the massive Spirit Of Atlanta album!

Cats On The Coast
Capricorn, 1977. Used
Sweet smooth grooves from Sea Level – a killer crossover 70s group, one with roots in the Allman Brothers, but a sound that's much more wide-reaching overall! This sublime album is an AOR classic – a set that graced countless collections back in the day, thanks to a warm blend of rock ... CD

Sylvia LPs fly out of Dusty Groove like they've got wings on them – and for good reason, since her sexy soulful style is both great and unique! This nice compilation by Rhino is 20 tracks strong, with loads of essential tracks like "Pillow Talk", "He Don't Ever Lose His ... CD
