Maison De Soul, 1978. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Later stuff from Irma – recorded for the rootsy Maison de Soul label, with a sound that's a lot more down and dirty than some of her classic Imperial sides from the 60s.

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsBlue Lightnin' ... LP
Jewel, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really nice later set from legendary Texas blues titan Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins – done up for the Jewel label with a bit of the spark that was missing from the hit & miss work he did earlier in the decade for Bluesville! Blue Lightnin' also has a down and dirty style in spots, ... (Blues, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1983. Very Good+ ... $2.99
There's plenty to be proud of here – as the album's a key part in the reinvention of Deniece Williams for the 80s – a great way of finding a new setting for her wonderful voice, one that helped her reach a huge new audience in the process! Most of the backings have an 80s approach, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra, 1981. Used ... $11.99
The debut of a genius group that would forever transform the sound of electric jazz in the 80s – and a brilliant set that few others could match at the time!

Philadelphia International, 1976. Used ... $8.99
Great stuff – and a key link between the early work of the Jackson 5 on Motown and Michael's later grooves with Quincy Jones! The Gamble/Huff team give the group a smooth sweet sound – definitely in a dancefloor mode, with some of the bassy riffs of Michael's Off The Wall album, but ... read more CD

One the all time great funky albums of the 70s – a mad little record with a sense of rhythm and timing that was years ahead of its time! The Soul Searchers (along with Chuck Brown) later became known for their heavy-hitting Go Go work at the end of the decade – but here, they're a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dianne & CaroleFeeling The Pain ... LP
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of the weirdest, coolest Latin Soul albums we've ever heard – the only offering ever from the duo of Dianne & Carole – two female singers who come off with a great deal of enthusiasm on the set!

Kapp, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the grooviest groups of the Latin Soul scene – but they'd have to be, given their name!

Trax, 1986. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Another great early house record on Trax, by Mickey Oliver, one of the original Hot Mix 5 who's built a reputation more on mixing than on his records, though this one's no slouch. Who'd have thought you could build such an irresistible groove with just a drum machine, bass synth and 8 bit sampler? 12-inch, Vinyl record

Solar, 1984. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
A bit past their salad days of funky West Coast numbers like "Fantastic Voyage", but still peddling the LA sound that would lay the basis for G-funk years later, bass heavy grooves under whiny keyboards that owes more than a little to Cameo and later P-Funk. The title track's the best ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Smooth jazzy work from Deodato – a record that takes off from his electric keyboard work of the early 70s, and shows his growing interest in modern soul and R&B a the time!

Rick James fires it up at the end of the 70s – stepping out at full star power that has him rivaling the strength of Bootsy Collins at Warner, and paving the way for the rise of Prince in the early 80s!

A great set from Patrice Rushen – very different than her later R&B work from the 80s!
