Maysa (Maysa Leak)

Metamorphosis
Shanachie, 2008. Used
Maysa Leak's a singer we never tire of hearing – a vocalist who's worked out a subtle, soulful set of classics over the past decade or two – working often with Incognito, and also sounding equally great on her own!

Please Rewind
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. Used
Really really wonderful work from Moonchild – even better than we remember from the first time around!

Cecile McLorin Salvant

Ghost Song
Nonesuch, 2022. Used
A fantastic new chapter in music from Cecile McLorin Salvant – a singer who's only been with us for a little more than a decade, has already gotten a Grammy and a MacArthur Genius Grant – yet hasn't let that stop her from being even more creative than ever! Cecile's still very much a ... CD (Vocalists CD)

Brothers

Don't Stop Now
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
Great stuff – and the kind of group that would be easy to overlook if the tracks weren't so good! The Brothers were clearly some sort of a studio project designed to cash in on the disco craze – and they included Bhen Lanzaroni on keyboards, who'd also recorded a bit on his own as a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Aretha Franklin

Aretha's Gold
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
It's hard to believe that after just a few short years of recording for Atlantic records, Aretha Franklin could come up with enough gold records to warrant a full album of hits for the label – but that's definitely the case with this classic collection from 1969! The fantastic evolution of ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
ABC, 1973. Very Good+
Superb work from Steely Dan – and a record that really shows them hitting perfection in the studio!

Aretha Franklin

Amazing Grace
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A legendary album – one that has Aretha Franklin returning to her roots in gospel music – but working with all the strength and power that Atlantic Records had to offer! From early years recording as a young voice alongside her father's congregation, Aretha has matured into a hell of a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A second great statement from the "corner club" of Milton Nascimento – that special assemblage of musicians from his home territory of Minas Gerais, augmented here in slight ways that maybe make the album an even more ambitious record than the first! All the best artists from the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil LP)

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin IV
Atlantic, 1971. Used
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! There' ... CD (Rock CD)

Jim Hall

Live In Tokyo
King (Japan), 1976. Used
A rare 70s set from guitarist Jim Hall – one that's got a cover that recalls Blue Note artwork used for Kenny Burrell, and recorded with a strong sound to match! The record's got maybe a bit more bite than some of Jim's airier sessions from the 70s – a strong power with Hall in the ... CD (Jazz CD)

Columbia/Legacy, Mid/Late 60s. Used
CD (Rock CD)
Numero, Late 60s/1970s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold

Capitol, 1970s/1980s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Tomato/Fat Possum, 1968. New Copy
The great debut of Townes Van Zandt! On the level of pure songwriting, it's masterful – Townes was pretty much in peak form on that front even on the debut! The record is at it's best when it's at it's most intimate – simply letting his voice and acoustic guitar carry everything. ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1974. New Copy
Easily our favorite album ever by Ann Peebles – not just for the beathead title track, but also because it seems to be the one record where she brings a bit something extra to the studio! The sound is certainly in the classic Hi Records mode here – thanks to production by Willie ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Fat Possum, 1990s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A strong collection of (mostly) early-to-mid 90s recordings by Mississippi blues legend Junior Kimbrough – compiling his Fat Possum recordings and as a set that really is essential!

CD (Soul CD)

Raphael Saadiq

Stone Rollin
Columbia, 2011. Used
The second set for Columbia by evolving R&B great Raphael Saadiq – possibly the best album he's ever done!

Stan Getz, Sonny Stitt, Fats Navarro, and others

Opus De Bop
Savoy, Mid 50s. Used
A classic Savoy side that brings together bop sessions recorded earlier in the label's life – done by different groupings that feature some of the best players of the early bebop years. Sonny Stitt, Kenny Dorham, and Bud Powell are part of a group that play "Ray's Idea", "Fool' ... CD (Jazz CD)

Ronny Jordan

Antidote
4th & Broadway, 1992. Used
A classic bit of London funky guitar from Ronny Jordan – the heir apparent to Grant Green and Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones – and one of the best new players of his generation! The set takes the older funky guitar styles of the 60s soul jazz generation, and fuses it with a 90s nujazz ... CD (Jazz CD)

Gil Melle

Andromeda Strain
Intrada, 1971. Used
Amazing stuff from the legendary jazz musician Gil Melle! By this time in his career, Melle had dropped his standard baritone – and had begun experimenting with loads of early electronics. This wild score features a mostly electronic set of tracks, played with the kind of roughness you ... CD (Soundtracks CD)
Irma (Italy), 1996. Used
Italy's great answer to the Mojo Club comps, and a great mix of jazz, soul, and other groovy musics that get a lot of play in the kind of hip clubs that we never seem to have over here in the states. A great 14 track mix of cuts that never stops to entertain, and which sounds great in a cool ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Irma (Italy), 1970s. Used
Latin, jazz, funk, and soul – the best-ever volume in this always-great series, and a real treasure throughout! The set was put together by Luca Trevisi of LTJ Xperience, and it's steeped in his rich knowledge of classic vinyl and obscure groovers. Every cut's a winner, and the set bubbles ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)

Various

Soulful
Luv N' Haight, 1993. Used
Excellent compilation from Luv N Haight, and one that's got a stellar mix of soulful funky tracks – most of them instrumental, but a few nice vocal ones as well. Titles include "Bump & Hustle Music" by Tommy Stewart, "Wavering" by Roy Porter, "Funny Girl" by ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1982. Used
80s grooving hard with Heatwave – still going strong on this album from 1982, taking that smooth funky style they helped forge in the 70s, and pushing it to a whole new level on this set! Over the years, the group continue to show a tremendous depth as a soul act, working here well on both ... CD (Soul CD)

Jack McDuff

Gin & Orange
Cadet/Dusty Groove, 1969. Used
Fuzzy, funky genius from the great Jack McDuff – a killer late 60s set done for Chess Records, and one that mixes his own searing Hammond with wicked arrangements from the mighty Richard Evans! Given Evans' background in the Chicago soul scene, there's a gritty groove here you don't get on ... CD (Jazz CD)
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used
A killer collection of grooves from the always-hip Jazzman label – a dozen tracks previously issued by the imprint on 45s, now brought together in one nicely-priced CD! The set's a definite party from the start – kicking off with Latin rhythms, moving into exotic jazz modes, then ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Irma (Italy), 1998. Used
3rd stunning volume in this excellent series that mixes together rare old jazz, funk, Latin, and Brazilian cuts – with the same sort of excellent selection and tight set of grooves that you'd expect from the Mojo Club series. Tracks include "About Love" by Ben Sidran, "Watch A ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Flying Dutchman/RCA, Early 70s. Used
Gil Scott-Heron's first album – and his angriest! Unlike some of Gil's other albums – which have a sweet jazzy vibe and a mix of mellow soul styles – this one's a lot rawer, and features Gil rapping loud over very heavy percussion backing. All the work is his own, and the album's ... CD (Soul CD)

Various

Brotherhood
Luv N' Haight, 1994. Used
One of the best Luv N Haight compilations, probably our favorite in their eclectic series that set a benchmark for so many funky compilations to follow! There's 8 tracks in all, covering lots of ground, all of it groovy, including the hard to get Sun Ra cut "Where Pathways Meet" from his ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)

Jiva

Sun & Moon
Soulnari, 2005. Used
Finally – the first full length album by Jiva, a group that we've loved for their singles in recent years, and have been dying to hear more of! Jiva are one of the strongest acts on the current Atlanta scene – a warmly soulful group who've also got a nice touch of jazz – and a ... CD (Neo Soul CD)
