BrainstormFunky Entertainment ... CD
Tabu/Right Stuff, 1979. Used ... $6.99
They're not lying with the title of this album from Brainstorm – because this classic late 70s set has the group moving into some very funky territory – stepping up the basslines even more than before, and really finding a great way to focus on the groove! The approach is right on the ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ BrainstormStormin (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set that definitely lives up to its title – a stone stormer from Brainstorm – one of the tightest funky ensembles of their generation, and one of the few who could go deep while still laying down a groove! The set's got a perfect balance of modes – enough of the appeal of ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Rhonda ClarkBetween Friends ... LP
Tabu, 1989. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set of modern soul Rhonda Clark – one that really should have catapulted to super-stardom in the late 80s! Rhonda has the goods here – crisp, modern productions that are as strong as any R&B circa '89 – a diverse, attractive voice and a bunch of great songs. We can't ...

✨✧ General CaineDangerous (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ultra Vybe/Tabu (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
General Caine's plenty dangerous here – so much so, they found a way to fuse an electric socket to the midsection of the model on the cover! That joke aside, though, the album's got the same tight approach to funk of the group's previous records – made maybe even tighter here by great ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ General CaineGirls (with bonus track) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
General Caine's got plenty of girls on the cover, and plenty of funk in his groove – that bass-heavy style that made Caine one of the better mainstream funk acts of the time! The General is actually Mitch McDowell – who'd worked previously with James Brown and George Clinton, and ... (Soul) read more CD

Lamont JohnsonMusic Of The Sun (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A soaring solo moment for Lamont Johnson – the bassist whose work was a big part of the Brainstorm ensemble at their start – and who really makes some great magic here on his own! It's clear from the set that Johnson was one of the more spiritual members of Brainstorm – as the ... (Soul) read more CD

Alexander O'NealAll Mixed Up (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $9.99
A sweet set of remix tracks from Alexander O'Neal – and a package that takes the already-great soul vibe of his Hearsay album, and helps give it some deep new energy for the dancefloor! The album's different than the US version of All Mixed Up – with a different cover, title, and track ... (Soul) read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Alexander O'NealAll True Man (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... $9.99
A classic set from all-true Alexander O'Neal – and maybe one of his last great records for the Tabu label! The set's got a nice balance of groovers and mellower moments – really showing the growing diversity of O'Neal as an artist, as he tries to move away from some of his bigger ... (Soul) read more CD

Sharon RidleyFull Moon (with bonus track) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few full albums ever cut by the great Sharon Ridley – a hell of a great singer from the east coast scene, and one with the fullness of the best club divas of the time – but an approach that goes way way deeper overall! There's a sexy slink to the album that echoes Ridley's ... (Soul) read more CD

SOS BandToo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
The SOS Band's second album – and a masterpiece of 80s groove! The album's wonderfully tight, and wonderfully right on the money – held together like a pile of money dipped in honey – keyboards, bass, percussion, and vocals all sweetly grooving with that post-70s funky feel that ...

II CloseMore To A Man (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... $8.99
An R&B trio from that time when more street-based aesthetics were coming into the mainstream of soul – bits of hip hop that were used to bring a really fresh groove to music like this! The touches are slight, but help add in a nice sort of kick to the groove – even in the mellower ... (Soul) read more CD

Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis cut some fantastic hits for big names on major labels during the 80s – but the duo really started hitting their stride with work on the Tabu Records label – an 80s soul imprint that still stands as one of the best demonstrations for all the new ideas ...
