CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Luther AllisonBad News Is Coming ... LP
Gordy, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A nice bit of funky blues, and a very strange record to appear on Motown! The production style and presentation are very rootsy – right down to the photo of Luther on the front cover, who's smoking a cigarette, but trying to pretend it's a joint! The style is electric blues of the Chicago ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Luther AllisonLuther's Blues ... LP
Gordy, 1974. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the only blues records you'll ever find on Motown – and a mostly straight blues affair with a hard electric sound to it. The album's mostly in the early Alligator Records camp – but there's a few nice funky cuts, like "Now You Got It" and "Into My Life", ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis EdwardsCoolin' Out ... LP
Gordy, 1985. Sealed ... $3.99
A second solo set from Temptation Dennis Edwards – a great set of mellow modern soul, with a very 80s approach to the production and arrangements. There's a bit of 80s production in the mix – handled by Dennis Lambert in a strong way that never overcomes the vocals – and titles ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dennis EdwardsDon't Look Any Further ... LP
Gordy, 1984. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Temptations' former lead singer's first solo record with a huge 80s groove album, especially considering the mighty title track – the duet with Siedah Garrett and it's sly reggae influenced bassline and crisp popping beat. This is one of those records we appreciate a lot more with the ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rick JamesBustin Out Of L Seven ... LP
Gordy, 1979. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Think what you might about Rick James, this is actually a pretty darn funky album – with lots of tight bass-heavy grooves! Rick's working here with the Stone City Band, in a style that's leaner and less commercial than some of his later work – going for a mainstream funk approach, but ...

Rick JamesCold Blooded ... CD
Gordy (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
Another stone winner from Rick James' early 80s run for Motown – a set that follows strongly on territory opened up by previous records – especially that bass-heavy approach to funk! The record's maybe not as stone classic as others, but still is way tighter and more put-together than ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Rick JamesFire It Up ... LP
Gordy, 1979. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Rick James fires it up at the end of the 70s – stepping out at full star power that has him rivaling the strength of Bootsy Collins at Warner, and paving the way for the rise of Prince in the early 80s! As with Prince, James' version of funk here is a bit offbeat – lots of riffing ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rick JamesGlow ... LP
Gordy, 1985. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Rick James hits a smoother sort of style here – one that's almost a compressed take on the mainstream version of funk first crafted on his earlier records, fused into a more radio-friendly approach for the Prince generation! The sound's actually not that bad – and the record has an ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rick JamesStreet Songs ... LP
Gordy, 1981. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the all-time great Rick James albums – a return to funkier sounds for Rick that worked both artistically and commercially – and actually got over far better than his more blatant attempts at crossover material on other records! The mix here is perfect – a true summation of ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Luther KingFree At Last ... LP
Gordy, 1968. Sealed ... $9.99
Classic Motown album of two of Dr. King's speeches – "Drum Major Instinct Sermon", from 2/4/68, and "I've Been To The Mountain", from 4/3/68. The latter is especially significant in that it was the last speech King ever made, delivered on the night before he was ... (Comedy/Spoken) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe the greatest album that Teena Marie ever cut – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of the lady's work for Motown! The set's got this bright, positive bounce that grabs you right from the start – but also moves into a depth that's way different than other funk albums of ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy/Motown (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Curtis Nolen and Raymond Crossley may not have been the biggest names to record for Motown in the 80s, but the duo serves up some mighty nice work in this overlooked set – a package of self-produced original material that comes across with a great 80s groove on both the uptempo numbers and ...

✨✧ Ralph SharonModern Innovations On Country & Western Themes ... LP
Gordy, Early 60s. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual album – not just because it features Tony Bennett's famous pianist recording for Motown – but also because Ralph Sharon takes on some country music themes, which are quite far from his usual bag! The results are surprisingly nice – and the album also features a ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy, 1969. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Socking soul, and a key album in the career of Detroit powerhouse Edwin Starr – one that had him stepping forth with a proud, loud groove all the way through! Starr's work was always a bit harder than the regular Motown bag – no doubts because of his more indie soul roots – and ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
A real breakout album for Edwin Starr – and the kind of full-on set that really helped give his music a bold new focus! Starr had already scored nicely on some playful tracks from the Motor City scene of the late 60s – but here, he emerges as a singer with a lot more depth than before ... (Soul) read more CD

The Temptations going in all directions – and all of them pretty darn groovy too!

A mix of styles and moods – with some righteous funky numbers, ala the Norman Whitfield days, and a few others done in a more modern soul mode.
