Columbia, 1988. Very Good+ ... $1.99
The sound's a bit different, but the man himself has lost none of his charm – the legendary Isaac Hayes, stepping out here near the end of the 80s, in all of his mature, masculine power!

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Well, Preston would hardly ever be called the "wildest" organ player – at least not in our town – but the record's one of his best, and it's got a pretty tight instrumental groove that's similar to some of Jimmy McGriff's work for the Sue and Veep labels.

Wonderful mellow work from Sam Cooke – and a set that's recorded with a sound that's very much in keeping with the "night beat" that you might expect from the title! In fact, there's not so much a "beat" as a simple easy groove – a gentle sort of "night" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1975. Very Good ... $5.99
A great lost bit of Motown 70s!
