Salsoul (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)
A club classic on Salsoul – with a soaring sound that's still grooving dancefloors today! The record was arranged and conducted by Leroy Burgess – who also sang lead vocals and wrote all the material – and it's got a sound that's similar to some of the later uptempo grooves that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trax (UK), 1988. New Copy (reissue)
Classic from the Chicago house scene – and still a bonafide club floor shaker! "Get The Hole" is a persistent jam that continues on in the "Acid Hole" version – getting more beats focused as it builds. "Under Control" and it's dub version on the flip are ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Double Shot/Bicycle Music, Late 60s. New Copy
A great collection of work from west coast soul singer Brenton Wood – longtime Northern Soul favorite, and one of the most unique singers of his time! Brenton has a great voice that's both sweet and raspy at the same time, cracking slightly on the hooks of his hits – in a way that ... CD
TK (UK), 1978. New Copy
One of the coolest cuts ever from KC & The Sunshine Band – a monster bit of funk with this snapping intro that's worth the price of the song alone! Todd Terje makes real magic with that snapping bit on the flipside – which is almost as great as the funky funky original! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Outta Sight (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
A second look at the kinds of sounds that made the Twisted Wheel one of the most important dancefloors on the UK Northern Soul scene of the 60s – and certainly one of the best when it came to really changing up the groove! The sounds here include the upbeat soul you'd expect, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Malaco Soul Sisters
Malaco/Soulscape (UK), 1970s. New Copy
Incredible material from a pair of underappreciated queens of Mississippi soul – 70s Malaco material from Jewel Bass and Dorothy Moore – together on this excellent compilation from Soulscape! Jewel Bass started as a session singer in her teen years, and recorded precious little ... CD
Nobody Has To Tell Me
Sound Stage 7/Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Sound Stage Seven recordings from Lattimore Brown – a heck of a great southern soul singer from the 60s, but one who almost never gets his due in the history books! Lattimore's got a raspy quality to his voice that's very much in the Bobby Blue Bland camp – but the backings he gets on ... CD
Sound Stage 7/Soulscape (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
A treasure trove of work from this overlooked southern soul singer – recordings that Sam Baker cut down in Nashville for the Sound Stage Seven label – all brought together here in one very comprehensive package! Sam's got a voice that's pitched slightly higher than some of his ... CD
Malaco/Soulscape (UK), 1970s. New Copy
Two rare soul brothers back to back – presented here with rare and previously unissued tracks, all pulled from the Malaco Records archive! First up is CP Love – an artist who never got much circulation up north, but whose talents easily rank with the best of the 70s southern soul ... CD
Black Knight
Cat/Virgorian, Early 70s. New Copy
CD...$8.99 11.99
An excellent bit of southern funk – very much in the early mode of Little Beaver, but with a sound that's even harder! James Knight is The Black Knight – leading a tight little combo with a raw funky 45 sound, heavy on the horns for backing, but with James' guitar right up front in the ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
A tremendous second step for Chicago soul legend Walter Jackson – packaged here with a huge amount of bonus tracks as well! The core album is a sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than ... CD
Steppin Out
Blue Candle/Alston (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
The one and only album we've ever seen from The 13th Floor – a hip little combo from St Louis, produced here by Oliver Sain in a great blend of jazz, soul, and funk! There's a depth here that goes way beyond the average outing of this type – as the group clearly have some sort of an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Osmium
Invictus, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
An insane bit of fuzzed-out funk! This is Parliament's rare first album – a trippy batch of tunes that come off of Clinton's experimentation in the Detroit soul scene, infused by the rock-heavy energy of the city at the time, and probably a heck of a lot of cannabis, too! The record is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liquid Liquid EP
99 Records/Superior Viaduct, Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A groundbreaking little record – and one that's hardly ever been matched again! Liquid Liquid sprang onto the scene with this amazing debut EP for 99 Records – a set that's got a wicked blend of funky drums, post-punk darkness, and this cool criss-crossing of modes that perfectly sums ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
TK (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The eternal disco hit by KC & The Sunshine Band – with the classic original and a tight Todd Terje edit! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia (France), 1965. New Copy
A hip little live date from Aretha Franklin – one that's got a very jazzy feel, and some great small combo backings! The album's almost a distillation of the jazzy styles on Aretha's first albums for Columbia – taken into even leaner territory here, in ways that really set Franklin ... CD
Commercial/Think (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A rare soul treasure from the duo of Estrus and Lester Patterson – a pair who recorded in virtual obscurity during the late 70s, but managed to come across with the strengths of the bigger soul acts of the time! The album was recorded in Nashville and Fort Wayne, Indiana – but has a ... CD
My Funky Funky Band
Twinight/Numero, Late 60s. New Copy
A vintage cover for some vintage grooves – the kind of funky soul tracks that made Syl Johnson one of the hardest-hitting talents on the Chicago soul scene at the end of the 70s – one with enough raw soul power to be a sort of James Brown for the Windy City! The work here represents ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Incredible southern soul work from Bill Brandon – a wealth of rare singles from the years before his better-known album on Prelude – all handled by landmark producers Sam Dees, Spooner Oldham, and Quin Ivy! With help like that in the studio, you can imagine that these singles are just ... CD
Grapevine (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Way more than just a simple "survey" of Chicago soul – and instead, a whopping collection of work from the vaults of Dakar Records – nearly all of it produced by Chi-soul genius Carl Davis! Back in the 60s, Davis' work was a seminal force in shaping the sound of the Windy ... CD
