Feel My Love
Salsoul, 1983. New Copy (reissue)
An obscure second set from the man who gave the world "Bounce Rock Skate Roll" – but a great one too! The album's got Vaughan Mason paired with Butch Dayo, in a way that brings a nice sort of back/forth feel to his usual roller skating groove – with results that are even more ...

Sometimes
Kayvette, 1977. Sealed
A real classic from Facts Of Life – a unique trio with a great talent for mellow songs about life, love, and messing around! The work was recorded in Muscle Shoals by Brad Shapiro and Millie Jackson – and it's often got the best qualities of Millie's own mellow work – not the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Percussion Explosion!
Alston, 1978. Very Good
The percussion-heavy soul gem from Herman Kelly & Life – recorded in both Brazil & Miami – and awash with killer drum work all the way through! The album's a key part of the Miami sound especially – and really shows the way that city's 70s funk scene used congas heavily ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alston/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy
One of the rarest funky records of all time – the hard-to-find second album by Beginning Of The End! This West Indian combo hit it big with their first album on Alston, but this second set, for some strange reason, never really got distributed – which is a damn shame, because it's ... CD

Kayvette/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy
One of Jackie Moore's best albums ever – and a tight batch of deep soul tunes produced by 70s maestro Brad Shapiro! Jackie's vocals are wonderful – full of feeling, and delivered with an honest, upfront quality that really ranks with some of the best southern soul singers of the time! ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Glades/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy
A Miami soul masterpiece from start to finish – and a lesser-known record from drum machine hit maestro Timmy Thomas! The album's got the feel of Timmy's classic Why Can't We Live Together album – but the overall sound is a bit fuller and richer, with a soulfulness that grabs us right ... CD

In Heat Again
Drive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy
That's Brenda & Herb, not Peaches & Herb – Herb Rooney and Brenda Reid of the excellent 60s group The Exciters – grooving together here in a really full-on vocal approach that's clearly inspired by the best aspects of Ashford & Simpson! Tracks have a lush, full feel – ... CD

Dash/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Way more than disco, a bit different than funk, and a lot cooler than you might guess from the image on the cover – a stone classic from Miami groovers Foxy, and easily one of their best records ever! The set's nice and tight right from the start – not really disco, but more of a ... CD

Warner/Big Break (UK), 1981. New Copy
Damn wonderful solo work from Chaka Khan – a record that holds onto all the best funky elements of her 70s music with Rufus – but also finds a way to put the lady even more strongly out front! There's maybe a bit more of a clubby vibe here than before, but never in a cheesy or ... CD

Joy (with bonus tracks)
Elektra/Big Break (UK), 1988. New Copy
A definite joy from the legendary Teddy Pendergrass – a late 80s album, but one that manages to still stay in all the best territory of his classic early solo work! Like a rare few from his generation, Teddy never gets overwhelmed by some heavier R&B production – that more ... CD

Red Bird/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful girl group and solo sounds from vaults of Red Bird – that wonderful label founded by songwriting giants Lieber & Stoller in the 60s – stereo masters from '64-'66! The label came out of the girl group boom earlier in the decade, so some of the ... CD

RCA/Victor (Japan), 1979. New Copy
The woman on the cover's got a look of shock on her face – maybe because she's just seen the Flasher promised in the title, or maybe just because she's surprised at how groovy this album really is! The set's an obscure late 70s Japanese disco outing – one that's very faithful to the ... CD

Birth Of A Dragon (Japanese paper sleeve edition)
RCA/Victor (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A great little disco set from 70s Japan – one that's got a bit of a cartoony look on the cover, but a sound that's rock-solid underneath! This set's one of the few Japanese disco efforts we've heard from the time – and it's got a vibe that's somewhere between Euro disco and New York ... CD

BW Goes C & W
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1976. Used
The title sort of says it all – as Bobby Womack goes Country and Western. This was never really much of a surprise to us, though, 'cause we always felt that Bobby had a lil' bit o' country in him all the time, especially in some of his guitar chord changes. The album's a nice batch of ... CD

Watching You (voc, inst)
Philly World, 1985. Sealed
One of the catchiest tunes from Joanna's legendary Philly World album – a track that bubbles with plenty of 80s soul touches, and which could have crossed ever big! There's a keyboard-heavy groove that percolates the track nicely – and Gardner's vocals soar soulfully over the top! 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Relic/Parrot/Blue Lake, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Classic and hard, hard, hard to find doo wop tracks, 17 of them in all, including "I'm Yours","I Found A New Baby", "Ko Ko Mo" and "If I Could Love You" by the Flamingos, "Don't Give My Love Away" and "Can't Stop" by the Fascinators, " ... LP, Vinyl record album
