✨✧ Ashford & SimpsonI Wanna Be Selfish (with bonus track) ... CD
Warner/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stone classic early work from Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson – really moving past the Motown sound – stepping wonderfully into a hip style of soul that would have a huge effect on the direction of R&B in the 70s! I Wanna Be Selfish is actually a very giving effort from the ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Edwin BirdsongEdwin Birdsong (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A breakout solo moment from the great Edwin Birdsong – an artist who participated in some of Roy Ayers great albums of the 70s, and who cut some great underground records of his own – but who finally got the chance to step into the limelight on this set for Philadelphia International! ...

✨✧ James BrownGravity (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Scotti Bros/Big Break (UK), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A bit of a comeback for James Brown – a mid 80s outing recorded with Dan Hartman, who gives the record a "contemporary" sound that's definitely a great way to slide James in with the younger crowd at the time! The style's still funky, but has more street soul elements too – ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Vernon BurchWhen I Get Back Home (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest, grooviest albums ever from Vernon Burch – an overlooked 70s soul genius who worked with countless others in the decade, and cut a handful of gems on his own! The set may well be Vernon's best, as it's got this really wonderful approach that mixes funky elements, jazzy ... (Soul) read more CD

Elektra/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A great chapter in the career of trumpeter Donald Byrd – his post-Blue Note work with the group 125th Street NYC – which is kind of a second chapter to the jazzy fusion style he developed at the start of the 70s!

Elektra/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A group that you may not know by name – but which features some top-shelf production at the helm – work by both Fred Wesley and Azar Lawrance, plus supervision from one of the Mizell brothers!

De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A wonderful female soul trio from the Chicago scene of the 70s – and one we'd stand strongly next to the best gal groups from the Philly or New York scenes!

Andre CymoneAC (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1985. Used ... $9.99
The best of a handful of albums that the one-time Prince bassist put out in the early 80s – a record that made a splash via the great Prince-penned "The Dance Electric" – possibly a blessing and a curse for AC, as Prince was so huge at the time that the record going public was ...

A sweet bouncy groover – one of the rare albums of modern soul cut by the group Delegation!

Epic/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $12.99
Killer soul from Heatwave – a tight little group who definitely made the UK proud at the end of the 70s!

An album of tribal brilliance from Instant Funk – and a set that really has the group coming into their own!

De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $12.99
Solid 80s grooving from Kool & The Gang – a group who inspired so many others in the early 80s soul generation, but who could still do it better than most of the rest! The style here is tight and smooth, but never too slick – and Deodato's giving the group some really great ... (Soul) read more CD

De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kool & The Gang sounding super-tight, but mighty right as well – a groove that still has all the great jazz elements of their mid 70s records, but which also has them picking up the bassy bottom a bit more too!

✨✧ Kool & The GangForce (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kool & The Gang's a little bit slicker and a little bit smoother on The Force than on earlier classic records – but thankfully, they're still getting on down to the funky sounds! The Force does indeed have more of a spacey boogie than a jungle boogie vibe, but they're still doing what we ... (Soul) read more CD

Kool & The GangLadies Night (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $12.99
A shameless dancefloor cash-in move – but a record that's still pretty darn great as well! You all know the big title cut "Ladies Night", so we won't bother to describe it – but we can say that the group wisely hooked up with Deodato, who produced, mixed, and even played ... (Soul) read more CD

A beautiful album from Jon Lucien – one that's been far too neglected over the years!
