King, 1978. Very Good+
LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Where There's Smoke
Motown, 1979. Very Good
Smooth Smokey at the end of the 70s – an album that has him moving from the Quiet Storm sound into the more hook-based style that would earn him a fair bit of hits in the 80s! The Robinson vocal approach is always sweet, warm, and mellow on the set – especially on the album's more ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
House, 1986. Very Good
A Chicago house classic, taking off on the riff from the Isaac Hayes tune that's been re-edited and mixed as doubles in clubs for ages and turning it into a new club anthem! 12-inch, Vinyl record (Soul 12-inch)
Killing Me Softly
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Roberta Flack at her most masterful – balancing righteous soul at it's most spiritually resonant and more mainstream accessible melodies – from her classic years at Atlantic when she was forging a whole new sound that was a unique blend of soul, jazz, and spiritualism. Each of Roberta's ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good+
One of the coolest Christmas albums ever – a tripped-out classic from Chicago's legendary Rotary Connection! The album's every bit as wonderful as any of the group's non-Holiday sets for Cadet Records – and maybe even has more to offer, given that the euphoria of the season is thrown ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Columbia (Holland), Early 70s. Used
Ode To Duke Ellington
West Wind (Germany), 1973. Used
A warm solo piano tribute to Duke Ellington – kind of a nice "back atcha" effort from Dollar Brand, given that Duke was one of his big champions in the early years of his career! The style here is quite far from Ellingtons, even though Brand plays a few of Duke's compositions ... CD (Jazz CD)
Live In Paris – 1963
Magnetic (Luxembourg), 1963. Used
With Sonny Rollins (ts), Don Cherry (tr), Henry Grimes (b), and Billy Higgins (dr). CD (Jazz CD)
Colecao Sucessos
Som Livre (Brazil), 1991. Used
Nice set that has Marcos' reworking some of his older tracks, with the same sort of R&B/fusiony sound that you'll hear on his other Som Livre albums from the early 80s. The groove has a good modern soul feel, and about 50% of the tracks are instrumental. Titles include "Samba De ... CD (Brazil CD)

Philadelphia International/West Side (UK), 1982/1983. Used
It's Time For Love is a mellow stunner in the legendary Teddy Pendergrass solo run for Philly International – and a set that's every bit as perfect as the rest of Teddy's classics from the time! There's few folks we'd trust more with a mellow groove than Teddy P – and on a set like ... CD (Soul CD)
Ralph/Elektra (Russia), 1985. Used
One of the most striking albums from the early 80s electronic scene – the brilliant second set from Yello, and an unusual blend of experimental, progressive, and club-styled tunes! There's a genre-busting quality here that puts the album equally at home in a post-disco or rock-based world ... CD (Rock CD)
Complete Million Dollar Session
Sun/Charly (UK), 1956. Used

Le Mystere Des Voix Bulgares – A Cathedral Concert

City To City
United Artists, 1978. Near Mint-
LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Checker, 1967. Very Good
Fantastic bit of soul by Gene Chandler, and despite the "hit" referred to in the title, the album's a great batch of stuff that doesn't really see the light of day that often! Includes his great remake of "Rainbow", titled "Rainbow 65", and featuring some amazing live ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Yes Album
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
The moment when the group were really starting to ascend to greatness – with titles that include "Yours Is No Disgrace", "Starship Tropper", "I've Seen All Good People", and "Perpetual Change". LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Verve/Mobile Fidelity, 1955. Used
One of Basie's biggest albums – but still a work of pure genius! "April In Paris" is one of the darkest jazz standards ever written, and it never sounded better than in this original version, which features that great ending in which Basie and the band stop, then start, then stop ... CD (Jazz CD)
Salty Dog
A&M, 1969. Very Good+
Maybe our favorite album from Procol Harum – a set that adds in some wonderful use of strings to the group's unique style – almost moving forward on the promise of the earlier single "Whiter Shade Of Pale", moving into much deeper territory overall! There's something about ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Blondes Have More Fun
Warner, 1978. Near Mint-
Rod Stewart steals from Jorge Ben – and gets the biggest hit of his career with "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy", this Brazilian funk-influenced disco tune that crossed over big! Also includes "Dirty Weekend", "The Best Days Of My Life", "Is That The Thanks I ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Atlanta/Polygram, 1986. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A mid-80s classic from Cameo – one that showed the world that the group was still very much in the funky music game, even if their lineup had been reduced to a trio! 12-inch, Vinyl record (Soul 12-inch)
20th Century, 1980. Near Mint-
One thing about The Dells: They were always great! Even here, at the end of the 70s, in settings that are less perfect than their classic work for Cadet or Vee Jay, the group still sound wonderful – more daring vocally than most other harmony groups at the time, cutting through some smoother ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Columbia, 1970. Very Good+
In the past 30 years, this one's gone from being a fierce outpouring of the Bay Area underground, to a cliche of classic rock, to a brilliant example of west coast Latin rock/funk/fusion in action! Features a stellar cover of "Oye Como Va", plus "Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen", ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Love We Have
Mercury, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Duets between Jerry Butler and Brenda Lee Eager – done as serious, adult oriented soul tracks, one side of the album in an optimistic "The Love We Have" setting, the other in a sadder "The Love We Had" setting – both of them handled in a mode that's far far different ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Chocolate City, 1980. Very Good+
Full-on frenetic funk from Cameo – one of the group's tightest albums, yet still without any of the too-slick sounds of later years! The sound here is amazing – and we always find ourselves wondering how a group of guys can hit such perfect grooves with just a bunch of basses, guitars, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
Arista (Japan), 1978. Used
No heavy metal here – just tight and funky jamming from the mighty Brecker Brothers! There's a bit more guitar here than on some of their other records – hence, possibly, the title – but the whole thing's still very much in that mix of soulful fusion and jazzy soloing that the ... CD (Jazz CD)
Westbound, 1975. Used
A tasty little album from Funkadelic – one that has Bootsy Collins joining the group, and really hitting the unique approach that would become the definitive P-Funk groove! And although tracks are shorter and even more focused, there's still a fair bit of guitar in the set – keeping ... CD (Soul CD)
War Child
Chrysalis, 1974. Very Good
Includes the classics "Skating Away On The Thin Ice Of A New Day" and "Bungle In The Jungle". LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
