AricaHeaven (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Just Sunshine/Tidal Waves, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99
An early musical moment from the Arica Institute – a spiritual collective whose many members supposedly recorded this album over the course of a night spent at the Electric Lady studio – with such a shifting lineup of sounds and participants, the album doesn't list any particular ...

Timeless/Tidal Waves, 1990. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Late Art Blakey – but great Blakey too, as Art never faltered a minute in the later years of his life, and continued to work with some of the best younger players he could find!

Art BlakeyIn My Prime (180 gram pressing) (2022 Record Store Day Drop) ... LP
Tidal Waves, Late 70s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... On June 18, 2022
You gotta love the confidence in Blakey's title for this one – because even in the late 70s, over 20 years since starting the Jazz Messengers, he was still very much in his prime! The album has him working with a wonderful group that includes Bobby Watson, Curtis Fuller, David Schnitter, and ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Malaku DakuLove Drums From The Ghetto (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tidal Waves, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 26.99
An album that's every bit as great as you'd guess from the cover and the title – a hip set recorded on the Philly scene of the 70s, and this wonderful blend of jazz, soul, and plenty of percussion! Malaku Thompson plays the drums, but there's also plenty of other percussion on the record ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

PS Records/Tidal Waves, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 26.99
A pretty hip batch of soul jazz tracks – recorded by drummer Frank Derrick live at Fiddler's nightclub in Chicago. Derrick's group plays a bit of everything – from Eddie Harris funky jazz to driving big band numbers to organ-heavy soul jazz numbers – all with a nicely heavy ...

Larry Douglas AlltetDedications (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Swajola/Tidal Waves, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 26.99
A rare bit of indie jazz from the Bay Area scene of the 80s – but put together with a groove that's much more 70s overall! The group's headed by trumpeter Larry Douglas, and has a soaring, soulful groove that definitely owes a lot to the spiritual sound on labels like Strata East or Black ...

✨✧ Exile OneExile One (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Disques Debs/Tidal Waves, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The fantastic first album from Exile One – a group who recorded more mainstream work in Paris later in their career – but who really sound fierce and funky here right at the start! The sound is lean, stripped-down, and a lot more aimed towards American soul than you'd guess from their ... (Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Norman FeelsWhere Or When (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Just Sunshine/Tidal Waves, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 30.98
Genius work from Norman Feels – a virtually unknown mellow soul singer from the 70s, but one who should have been huge! Norman sings with this sweetly crackling style that we loved the moment we first heard it – a sound that's somewhere in territory covered by Marvin Gaye or Leroy ...

✨✧ Friimen Muzic CompanyFree Man (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tidal Waves, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heady sounds from Friimen – a 70s combo from Nigeria, but one who have some of the deeper, more psychedelic elements of groups from farther south on the West African scene – lots of basslines and a dubby sort of vibe! At times, the feel here is almost more like Blo or Cymande (even ... (Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

HarariGenesis (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gallo/Tidal Waves, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 26.99
A beautiful 70s album from Harari – a South African group who already had a long legacy in music before this set, and who really seem to come together with a style that's even more sophisticated than some of their previous albums! The cover might make the record look a bit disco, but there's ... (Global Grooves) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Post-Tribe Records work from Detroit reedman Wendell Harrison – a set that was issued on his own Wenha label, and which is kind of an update of an older soul jazz mode!

Solo album by this member of the Parliament/Funkadelic crew. The sound is a bit Bootsy, but with a clubbier feel to it. Tracks include "Sinderilla", "I Think I Got My Thang Together", "Gimme Back", and "Thangs We Used to Do". Plus an excellent Ronald ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
If you only know Loleatta Holloway as a disco singer, you'll be really amazed at this debut album from 1973 – because Loleatta emerges first as deep soul singer with a strong southern vibe – very much in the mode the Atlanta scene did best, before picking up the pace a bit more as the ...

Alwest/Tidal Waves, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... On June 18, 2022
That's underground funk legend Cecil Lyde on the cover – and the music here is very much in keeping with his 80s sense of style – plenty of sweet keyboards, beats, and basslines – all served up in catchy little tunes with plenty of electro elements around the edges!

Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 26.98
Mad funky soul from King Hannibal – a down and dirty singer from the Atlanta scene of the 70s! The notes on the back say "He's black, he's proud, he's arrogant – the combination is powerful" – and we've gotta say that we agree with that assessment, because King really ...

Riza/Tidal Waves, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 26.99
An obscure set from Azar Lawrence – self-produced and self-arranged, in a smooth modern soul mode that's kind of an 80s extension of his work in the 70s for Prestige. There's a definite R&B groove on most tracks, and vocalist Coco Evans sings on 2 of the album's 8 tracks – and an ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A soul record, but one with a fair bit of "something else" going on as well – and a set that was originally only issued on cassette, which might be why it was missed the first time around!

A late rare gem from southern soul genius Bobby Patterson – the Texas talent who's best known for his work of the late 60s and early 70s, but who's featured here on a self-released album from the start of the 80s!

A wild one! After the straight hard funk of some of his earlier recordings as a leader, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie breaks out here in a compelling album of soul jazz tracks done in a number of styles.

A key album in the post-Hendrix tradition of funky black rock – and the only album ever recorded by Cleveland's Purple Image!

One of the most unique soundtracks of the blacksploitation generation – but maybe that's also because the film Lord Shango was also somewhat different than most – a hipper, more creative movie that took on a number of themes, which are all echoed by Howard Roberts in his music!
