Cerrone's definitely got the Golden Touch here – grooving long and strong, with that mix of cosmic club and warmer disco that made his 70s music so great! The album's a masterpiece all the way through – driven by great percussion from the maestro, and swirled up into a heavenly mix at ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a partially unglued bottom seam.)
One of the few mid 70s albums that Lou Donaldson recorded for Atlantic Records – done in a mode that's a bit different than his Blue Note sides, with larger arrangements overall – a bit like the shift that Stanley Turrentine took when recording for Fantasy! Backings are handled by ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A pair of later albums from the great Ronnie Dyson – both of which show him moving strongly well into the 80s! The first set is a self-stated Phase 2 in Ronnie Dyson's career – one that has him moving with a bit more confidence than before, and nicely maturing into a sweet 80s sort of ... (Soul) read moreCD
Two great tracks from Dee Edwards – from a time when the Detroit singer was really getting a chance to shine! "Put The World On Hold" has a sweet lyric over a soaring groove – not entirely clubby, maybe more modern soul overall – with a slightly complex set of changes ...

Fabulous Counts —

Out Of Stock
A stunner of a funk album – a must-have for any fan of all things funky! This is the one-and-only record cut by the Fabulous Counts, a version of the Counts before they recorded for Westbound – and nearly every cut is a funky 45-type gem! The group's got a hard and heavy sound that ... (Soul) read moreCD
Phoenix ... CD Cotillion/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fatback flying like the Phoenix – but hardly rising from the ashes, given that the group's always on top! The sound here is a bit different – slightly leaner than before, but in a good way – with lots of core keyboards from Bill Curtis, who also handles most of the lead vocals ... (Soul) read moreCD
Rare work by Garland – recorded away from Chicago, in Philly, at Sigma Sound, with production and songwriting by Bunny Sigler and Phil Hurtt, and arrangements by Norman Harris and Ronnie Baker. The combination of Green's bluesy vocals with a smooth Philly soul approach works very nicely ... (Funky 45's) read more7-inch, Vinyl record
The Impressions first album for Cotillion, cut after a great 70s run on Curtom – but one that's done with a sound that still carries on the groove nicely! The more righteous tones of the earlier work are shaken loose a bit, to be replaced by a fuller approach to the music built from ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Margie Joseph's really hitting on all burners here – thanks to sublime production from Lamont Dozier, working at the height of his mid 70s powers! Joseph's earlier deep soul vocals are given a nice sense of focus and righteous energy from Dozier's production – a fullness that somehow ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing. Cover has a cutout mark.)
A crossover classic from Stacy Lattisaw – an album that's much more mature than her earlier work, despite the "girl" in the title! The tunes are often slow-building and somewhat emotive – in a way that has Stacy stretching out her vocals a bit more than before as she reaches ... (Soul) read moreCD
Two Cotillion classics from Screaming Lord Sutch – back to back on a single CD! First up is Lord Sutch & Heavy Friends – an album that's almost equally well-known for its work by a host of famous guests – including Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and others! Page is ... (Rock) read moreCD
"Funky Music" is a great early tune from Luther Vandross – a soaring clubby number based on the same changes as "Fascination", which he wrote with David Bowie – but done here in a style that's a lot more soulful, and very very groovy! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has a small sticker.)
Luther ... LP Cotillion, 1976. Good ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
His first album, and his best! After working as the silent talent on albums by David Bowie, Gregg Diamond, and others – Luther Vandross finally got the chance to cut an album on his own, and it's incredible! The record has a perfect sound – one that verges on disco, but never falls ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

The last Mass Production album for Atlantic Records – and a set that definitely has the group picking up a new direction in their style! The groove is a bit leaner than before – more keyboards instead of larger funk ensemble elements – fused in a sweet groove that bubbles with ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Uptempo ensemble funk from Mass Production, very much in a post-EWF vein. The group does a good job of layering guitars, keys, horns and percussion together in a tight, bass heavy mode, we'd say our only wish is that they were a touch stronger in the vocal performances, which though nice enough, ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic collection of grooves from Mass Production – one of the best of the large funk ensembles to hit the mainstream at the end of the 70s – even though they didn't always get the success they deserved! That doesn't stop these guys from giving their all, though – super-sharp ... (Soul) read moreCD
Never-heard music from the legendary Rasputin's Stash – a funk group who recorded famously on Atlantic and Curtom in the early 70s, then created this gem of an album that appears here for the first time ever! The quality of the work is fantastic, and even seems better than their Curtom album ... (Soul) read moreCD

The second album from Sister Sledge – recorded in Munich with the team of Michael Kunze & Sylvester Levay, the guys behind the big disco hits by Silver Convention – with that tight, bright and bouncing soul groove and sultry group vocals from the sisters!

A key early classic from Slave – as the set features the group's first work with drummer Steve Arrington, who not only opened up their rhythmic concept, but also gave them a great new sound on lead vocals! Arrington's approach here is very much in the spirit of Slave's first 2 records – ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Velvet Underground —
Loaded ... LP Cotillion, 1970. Very Good ...
The end of the road for the Velvet Underground – but a set that's also one of the group's best-remembered albums too! The record marked a big shift for the group – a move to Atco from Verve, continuing to work without John Cale – and the sound is possibly more rockish and ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Cotillion pressing with Broadway address, with PRC/QB etches. Cover has a half split top seam.)
Great smooth soul from Wee Gee – a wonderful little record from the dawn of the 80s! The album's a great one, thanks largely to Vernon Bullock, who wrote, arranged, and produced with that uptempo modern style that he brought to his best work of the 70s. The soaring title track is a 10+ ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A soaring solo effort from the great Philippe Wynne – a vocalist who's probably best known for his hit 70s work with The Spinners, but one who also turns out to be a hell of talent on his own! Wynne's sweet raspy vocals click into place right from the start – stretching out over a host ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A seminal album from the end of the 60s – the triple-length soundtrack to the legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969 – pulled from all the many hours of material recorded for the film of the event!
