Love Jones ... CD 20th Century/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
A tremendous bit of harmony soul from Chicago – one of the few cases where the Windy City really gave the east coast a run for its money – and the landmark album from teen soul quartet Brighter Side Of Darkness! Although young, Brighter Side managed to bring a depth to their work that ... (Soul) read moreCD
Brilliant work from this long-lost Barry White protege! Tom Brock was one of the leading lights in Barry's stable of sweet mid 70s soul talents – a great writer who contributed songs to the legendary Gloria Scott album, and a heck of a great mellow soul singer on his own – with a style ...

Fathom ... LP 20th Century, 1967. Near Mint- ...
A sexy action film from the 60s – one that features the legendary Raquel Welch in the lead, and some very slinky grooves on the soundtrack to match! John Dankworth handled the score here, and he's mixing in some sultry soundtrack elements to his usual jazzy style – a combination that's ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An excellent group soul from Chicago – and no wonder, since The Imaginations were previously Brighter Side Of Darknes, a sublime falsetto harmony group who had a huge hit in 1972 with "Love Jones". This record's very much in the vein of that song – but also features a ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Promo. Cover has some edge wear, bent corners, mostly split top seam, and a promo sticker on back.)
Unlike Ahmad's other LPs for 20th Century, this one's a fairly straight set of tracks, with (mostly) acoustic piano (although he does play Fender Rhodes on one track). He's backed by a nice combo that features Calvin Keys on guitar, Frank Gant on drums, John Hurd on bass, and Selden Newton on ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small split on the top seam, but looks great overall.)
(Promo. Label on stereo side has a small sticker and a bit of marker.)

White Gold ... LP 20th Century, 1974. Very Good+ ...
A wonderful album of funky instrumental tracks from Barry White – often overlooked because of the "greatest hits" association you could make with the "gold" in the title. The record's got that perfect Love Unlimited sound – heavy beats underneath, and the orchestra ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Stephanie Mills in fine formation here – working with the team of James Mtume and Reggie Lucas, who helped the lady reach the heights of her career in the early 80s! The sound here is catchy and contemporary, but hardly ever too commercial – just relaxed and grooving, in a mode that ... (Soul) read moreCD
Kind of a "greatest hit" of greatest hits compilations – a set that's probably sold more copies than any of Barry White's full length albums – thanks to a monstrous run of hits in the 70s! The package is overflowing with greatness – amazing tunes that balance funky ... (Soul) read moreCD
Can't get enough of Barry White at this key point in his career – a time when he was stepping from the shadows as one of the most sensuous soul stars of the 70s! The album's a near-perfect effort throughout – a great blend of the soaring strings and funkier rhythms that always made ... (Soul) read moreCD
Kind of a confrontational title, but still an excellent batch of grooves from The Maestro, with heavenly production, and lots of long drawn-out sexy grooves. Cuts include "Don't Make Me Wait Too Long", "I'm Qualified To Satisfy You", "Your Love – So Good I Can't Take ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Out Of Stock
While not as huge a hit as some of his other 70s efforts, this is still a solid LP from White as the 70s were winding down. His signature sweeping soul style is fully in place, and the rich production complements the slower get-your-groove-on ballads nicely. Includes "Your Sweetness Is My ... (Soul) read moreCD

Stone Gon' ... LP 20th Century, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of The Maestro's true materpieces! Fragile, sexy, sinful soul, held together by interwoven strings and keyboard lines, with Barry's voice over the top like rich cream on a sweet piece of cake. Includes the long versions of "Honey Please, Can't Ya See" and "Never, Never Gonna ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(In the original quad-fold cover with light wear and aging. Includes the heavy inner sleeve.)
A stunner of a soundtrack from the maestro Barry White – his only entry into the blacksploitation film genre of the 70s, and a complete doozy throughout! For the album, Barry's stripped down the bigger space of his own records, and his Love Unlimited productions – into some shorter ... (Soul) read moreCD

Star Wars ... LP 20th Century, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ...
A great little soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for – and a record that's gone on to be one of the touchstone soundtracks of the 60s! Some of the tunes are more straight numbers by Johnny Williams – a bit dreamy, but with some nice easy touches – but the ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole, light surface wear, and minor seam splits.)
Standout work from The Younghearts – one of the best harmony soul groups of the 70s to record away from the east coast. The group's vocals are the strongest thing about the record – but they get a great extra push from Vernon Bullock, who produced and conducted the record with a nice ...
