High InergyShoulda Gone Dancin ... LP
Gordy, 1979. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Tight grooves from High Inergy – but from the perspective of time, a set that's a lot more open and relaxed than any Hi-Energy work of years to come! The record's heavy on club rhythms – as you'd probably expect from the title – but the girls sing with a bit more feeling than the ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rick JamesBustin Out Of L Seven ... LP
Gordy, 1979. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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 ... Out Of Stock
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 JamesCome Get It ... LP
Gordy, 1978. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Rick James' first LP for Motown subsidiary Gordy, that was to provide the blueprint for his later success. James' trademark pop bass funk style is fully formed on this one already, and though we may once have thought little of the slick production and style, looking back this stuff has a good bit ...

✨✧ Rick JamesFire It Up ... LP
Gordy, 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 JamesGarden Of Love ... LP
Gordy, 1980. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Rick James' classic early run for Motown – a set that maybe didn't chart as big as some of his other records for the label, but which stands strongly today as a well-crafted batch of mellow funky soul! James has a bit less of the bass-heavy riffs here than you'd expect ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Rick James is massively throwing down on this classic set – tight, right, and on the money all the way through – in that trademark groove that so many others would try to cop, but never get this right! The album bristles with energy right from the start – lots of bass at the ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Martin Luther KingGreat March To Freedom – Detroit, June 23, 1963 ... LP
Gordy, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
When Dr. King spoke in Detroit in 1963, Motown managed to have the tape recorders rolling – and the result was this classic album of knowledge and righteousness. The album is banded into segments from King's speech, entitled "Non Violent Approach", "Love Your Enemy", ... (Spoken Word) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Teena MarieIrons In The Fire ... LP
Gordy, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
A stone classic from Teena Marie – one of her magical self-produced efforts for Motown! The record's a winner all the way through – with a depth to the vocals and backings that are steeped in the 70s styles of Minnie Riperton and Chaka Khan. A few tracks get a bit upbeat funky, but ...

Gordy, 1980. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A great little album from Teena Marie – one that's dedicated to the late Minnie Riperton (who'd passed during the previous year), and which is produced by Riperton's husband/collaborator Richard Rudolph. Teena's got more than a few of Minnie's tricks up her sleeve on the best cuts, singing ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nolen & CrossleyAmbience ... CD
Gordy/Motown (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
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 ...

Gordy, 1968. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Motown's answer to Chicago's Soulful Strings – an instrumental group of studio players, working under the name of the San Remo Strings – ostensibly to give the outfit a bit of European class! The tunes on the set are essentially Motown instrumentals, played with a bit more flair, and a ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mod soul classic from the great Edwin Starr – a set that bridges his years in the Detroit underground and his sudden rise to fame at Motown! The tracks here have a really deep basement grooving sort of vibe – catchy, but less poppy than the usual Motown – and more with the kind ... (Soul) read more CD

Edwin StarrWar & Peace ... CD
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

Gordy, 1980. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of the last records Switch recorded before Philip Ingram went solo, and the rest of the guys broke off into DeBarge – and an album with some surprisingly sweet soul moments! The funky side of Switch is still stringly in place, but this record has some great little ballads ballads too ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gordy, 1973. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the last totally righteous albums by the Temptations – recorded at the end of their progressive run at Motown, and done with some really hard-hitting tunes and production from Norman Whitfield!

Gordy (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Temptations going in all directions – and all of them pretty darn groovy too!

Gordy, 1976. Sealed ... $6.99
The Temptations doing The Temptations and doing it pretty darn well – further proof that the group just kept on going with greatness, even during the years of their lesser fame! The album's got a slight bit of mid 70s polish – a bit of a nod towards the dancefloor at times, but never ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

An obscure Motown group from the end of the 70s – 21st Creation had a strident uptempo group sound that reminds us of some of the more successful disco hits of Tavares from the same time.
