An excellent album of smooth soul from Carl Carlton – a richly talented singer who began his career as a kid in the 60s, but who's working here in a sophisticated adult mode with production by Leon Haywood. The album kind of takes Haywood's best styles of the mid 70s and updates them to ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A surprisingly great album – even if it's short on information! There's no real dates on this one, so we have to assume that it's of the vintage of the album's release date – somewhere in the early 60s – making the album pretty late for Benny, but also pretty great as well!

A nice record of modern soul that got a bit overlooked at the time because of the poor fate of the Chi-Sound label. The record's filled with Chicago soul talent like Tom Tom 84, Sonny Sanders, and Carl Davis, and it's a good updating of Gene's Chicago soul sound towards a style that's more modern ...

The legendary Gene Chandler gets down, and gets down good – in this classic late 70s set of clubby numbers and upbeat groovers!

One of Gene Chandler's later albums recorded for Carl Davis' Chi-Sound label.

We can't help but favor the Dells earlier soul work, but later disco numbers like the a-side of this nice single, and the sophisticated title track off the I Touched A Dream LP, a more downtempo cut, are no less great! (Soul) 12-inch, Vinyl record
The Dillards have broken up, but Doug Dillard is still sounding great here – a hell of a vocalist showing once again that he was one of the key early forces in country rock – working here with a fantastic lineup that includes Rodney Dillard on dobro, Buddy Emmons on steel guitar, and ...

Bass-heavy funk material by this obscure west coast group, and a record that features songwriting and production by Bob Crewe.

Classic work from Fantastic Four – who are really hitting their stride vocally, moving into a whole new sound from their work in the late 60s.

Arguably one of the greatest horror soundtracks ever – an intense bit of work that builds on the vocal choral style of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, using male and female voices in union with staccato orchestrations to invoke a fiercely tense mood – one that works perfectly for the spooky ...

Leon Haywood's best album from the 70s!

A great bit of Chicago soul from the 70s – by a short-lived group who were sort of an offshoot of Brighter Side Of Darkness, who had scored earlier in the decade with the falsetto hit "Love Jones".

Late stuff – but one of the best Barry White-related albums from the 70s!

A beautiful swirling instrumental LP that features the classic "Love's Theme", the cut that made Barry a multi-millionaire, and which firmly established his sophisticated orchestral soul style as one of the trademarks of the 70s!

Barry White, we love you! Even at a later date like this, on a lesser-known tune – you always come up with the goods!

Bruno Nicolai conducted this score by Morricone for the film The Sicilian Clan – a bit of a hit back in 1969, and a dark little gangster film!

Heavy heavy funk from this lost Chicago group – an undisputed powerhouse in the mid 70s, and one of the city's few funky combos to really break out to a national audience!
