✨✧ Otis ReddingGreat Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads ... LP
Volt, 1965. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of Otis Redding's best albums – especially to our ears, as we like his ballad work the best! Sure, Otis could get hard and a bit funky when he wanted to – but his real charm, and strongest suit, were always the heartfelt mellow tracks that he cut during his classic Stax years. Otis had a sweetly cracking style of singing that was like no one else – and although it shone through enough on the uptempo numbers, it's really best suited to the ballads and sad songs – of which you'll find plenty on this set! Tracks include "Mr. Pitiful", "That's How Strong My Love Is", "It's Too Late", "Woman, Lover, A Friend", and "Home In Your Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Otis ReddingBest Of Otis Redding (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A well-selected batch of work from one of the greatest soul singers of all time – and cuts that are presented here in rare mono mixes, all taken from the original mono tapes! The work includes important early sides that Redding cut at Stax Records – where he was the reigning star – plus a few issued after his untimely early death by Atlantic Records, who got their hands on Redding material that was still unreleased – and which gave Otis some of his biggest chart success in the years after he left the planet. The set list is fantastic throughout – the blueprint for so much deep soul to come from later generations – and the package features 16 titles that include "Mr Pitiful", "Stand By Me", "Pain In My Heart", "These Arms Of Mine", "That's How Strong My Love Is", "Respect", "My Girl", "Satisfaction", "Dock Of The Bay", "Hard To Handle", "I've Got Dreams To Remember", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Shake", and "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)".

✨✧ Otis ReddingLonely & Blue – The Deepest Soul Of Otis Redding (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stax, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very cool idea – and a set that works together almost as a "lost" Otis Redding album – from the cover art right down to the grooves on the disc! The package focuses on the deepest, bluest side of Otis Redding – his amazing talent for a heartbreaking song and a sad-tinged ballad – of the sort that it seemed like Otis sang better than anyone else! This well-done collection brings together a few well-known numbers and other overlooked gems – all in a package that has a really unified theme and sound, and which almost feels like some concept album that Stax developed back in the 60s, but never released. Titles include "Gone Again", "A Waste Of Time", "These Arms Of Mine", "I've Got Some Dreams To Remember (rougher dreams)", "Open The Door (skeleton key version)", "Everybody Makes A Mistake", "Free Me", and "Little Ol Me".

✨✧ Otis ReddingDock Of The Bay ... LP
Volt, 1968. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A very important crossover soul album – a huge hit for Otis Redding that was released after his tragic death in December 1967 – but it's also hard to say if it would have had the impact it did had Redding not passed while the LP was still in production. In a way, the record sort of set the stage for the mythologies of pop stars that would surround the tragedies in the coming years of the late 60s – with liner notes on the back by Jon Landau about the impact of Redding's work and passing on the rest of the music industry, which would be even more charged with meaning to folks buying the album at the time, who certainly knew that Redding had cut "Dock of the Bay" a few days before his death, and had missed its meteoric rise to #1 after his passing. And in fact, the album itself is more of a loose collection of tracks pulled from singles and other sources to cash in on Redding's passing – and includes odd numbers like "The Huckle Buck", which had previously appeared on a Stax promo album, or "Tramp", his famous funky duet with Carla Thomas. Other titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Ole Man Trouble", "Open The Door", and "Let Me Come On Home". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mark RibowskyDreams To Remember – Otis Redding, Stax Records & The Transformation Of Southern Soul (hardcover) ... Book
Liveright, 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 27.95
A hefty book on the great Otis Redding – one of the best soul singers of all time, even though he left this planet all too soon! Redding's career on record was less than a decade long, but marked by a huge amount of work – not just time in the studio, with the legendary Stax Records – but also countless hours on the road, where Otis honed his talents and perfected his craft – while additionally putting both himself and his talents at risk. Author Mark Ribowsky looks at these years in wonderful depth – mostly with a focus on Redding, but also a strong look at Stax as well – as the partnership between the two was one of the most important in soul music at the time, and continues to have an impact all these many years later. Book is 366 pages, with copious notes at the end – hardcover, and with some black and white images. Book

Booker T & The MGs/The Mar KeysStax Instrumentals – Previously Unissued Tracks ... CD
Stax, 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
25 rare tracks from the Memphis scene – 60s instrumentals by The Mar-Keys and Booker T & the MGs that have never been issued before! The Stax label is well known as the home to a wealth of famous soul singers – including Rufus Thomas, Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Isaac Hayes, and many many more – but perhaps the greatest contribution the label ever made was its contribution to soul record instrumentation. The label was fortunate to have 2 great house bands – Booker T & The MGs and the Mar-Keys – both of whom had a stripped down soulful approach that helped take the raw R&B groove of the 50s, and filter it into the more sophisticated soul sound of the 60s. And while both of the groups released plenty of albums and singles under their own name for Stax, they also spent so much time in the studios that they left behind a wealth of great unissued material – some of it even better than their official releases, due to the laidback and relaxed nature of the sessions. This great CD brings together over two dozen tracks by the two groups – none of which have been issued before, all of which are packaged here with great sound and notes that finally do the material justice. Titles by Booker T & The MGs include "Weird Stomp", "Slidin", "Good Groove", "Let's Go", "Consumption", "The Bo Vitch", "Three Leaf Clover", "Lawn Party", "Ain't It", and "Funky Folks Cha Cha". Titles by the Mar-Keys include "Peppy", "Gigglin", "Raw Hide", "Tighten Up", "Saucy", "Sassy", "The Floyd", "Settle Down", and "Blue Peanut". CD

Charles BradleyBlack Velvet ... LP
Dunham/Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The great Charles Bradley left this planet all too soon – and although we've got this final album of music to enjoy, it's only a partial consolation for Bradley's early departure! The set's maybe a bit like some of the albums of Otis Redding material that were issued after his passing – in that there's some cuts here that were singles, mixed with unissued songs that really show Bradley on top of his game – working strongly with the Menehan Street Band at a level that really has us wanting more! Some of these tunes have a sharply righteous vibe – maybe even more edge than before from Charles – which makes the whole thing not just a completely essential addition to his catalog, but also a way of pointing towards a future that might have been. Titles include "Can't Fight The Feeling", "Luv Jones", "I Feel A Change", "Black Velvet", "Fly Little Girl", "Victim Of Love (electric version)", "Slip Away", and "Heart Of Gold".

Solomon BurkeHome In Your Heart – Best Of Solomon Burke ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
Genius – pure genius! Solomon Burke is one of those soul singers you always hear folks about, but who you never seem to get to hear as much as folks like Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, or any of his other label-mates on Atlantic. This excellent 2CD set will correct that problem – as it brings together 41 tracks from Solomon's glory days at Atlantic, and the selection of material is fantastic all the way through. Solomon's voice is indescribably majestic – soaring over the top of the tightly-woven arrangements that were some of Atlantic's first real forays into soul music. The set does a good job of showing the full range of his talents during the 60s – and it moves way past the few hits he had, which always seem to get repeated endlessly when anyone brings up his name. Tracks include "Save It", "Get Out Of My Life Woman", "Detroit City", "Take Me (Just As I Am)", "When She Touches Me (Nothing Else Matters)", "Looking For My Baby", "I'm Hanging Up My Heart For You", "Cry To Me", "If You Need Me", "The Price", "You're Good For Me", "Words", "It's Been A Change", "Time Is A Thief", "Stupidity", and "Woman, How Do You Make Me Love You Like I Do".

James CarrMan Needs A Woman ... LP
Goldwax, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Sublime southern soul from one of the greats! James Carr is right up there with the best of the 60s – Otis Redding, Arthur Conley, Joe Tex, and others – but he never made it as big as them because of personal troubles and bad planning on the part of his label and management. Fortunately, his genius has been kept alive by record collectors everywhere – for whom this rare gem is a holy grail! The album features 11 tunes that sum up the best of the south in the 60s – all sung by James with his unbelievably heartbreaking voice. Titles include "The Dark End Of The Street", "You've Got My Mind Messed Up", "A Woman Is A Man's Best Friend", "I'm A Fool For You", "Stronger Than Love", "More Love", and "Sowed Love & Reaped A Heartache".

Arthur ConleyShake, Rattle, & Roll ... LP
Atco, 1967. Very Good ... $19.99
The second Arthur Conley album for Atlantic – and like the first, a record that really cooks with some great Otis Redding production! The sound and style is very similar to Otis' work for Stax during the 60s – but the album was recorded at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, with engineering by Jimmy Johnson, and it's got a bit of a different sound from the Memphis soul of Otis' records. There's more horns, and less organ and guitars, and Conley's vocals are produced in a raw style that brings out the best of his work. Includes versions of the Otis Redding tracks "Ha Ha Ha" and "I've Been Loving You Too Long", plus Conley's own "Love's Got Me", "Hand & Glove", and "I'll Take The Blame". LP, Vinyl record album

Toots was always reverent of greatest southern soul, so this effort is anything but forced. Toots tackles material by Otis Redding, Al Green, James Carr and others for on this sweet set – played with admirable restraint by a group of musicians who could really accomplish anything. 10 tracks in all: "I've Got To Remember", "Knock On Wood", "Love And Happiness", "Love Attack", "Hard To Handle", "Love The Rain", "It's A Shame", "Precious, Precious", "Freedom Train" and "See It My Way".

Daptone, 2000s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Rare work from Sharon Jones – and a record that's a bit different than some of her other work for the Daptone label! The set features the group doing cover versions of tracks by other artists – some that appeared as singles over the years, others commissioned for projects, and a few that never saw the light of day at all – brought together here to make a unique posthumous album from Sharon and the Dap-Kings! If you know the tightness of the group, and Jones' classic style of soul vocals, you'll know you're in for a treat – a bit like when Otis Redding might have taken on a familiar tune for Stax – in a lineup that includes "Inspiration Information", "Take Me With U", "What Have You Done For Me Lately", "Signed Sealed Delivered", "Just Dropped In", "Giving Up", "Rescue Me", "In The Bush", "It Hurts To Be Alone", and "Trespasser".

Catalyst/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $6.99 13.98
A weird little soul album from singer Milt Matthews – one that mixes up a range of late 60s influences, including Hendrix guitar licks, southern soul vocals, and kind of a rootsy crossover feel that's almost equal parts rock and soul! There's a lot of wah wah and organ in the mix – and the lyrics are pretty righteous on most songs – almost in the sort of territory that other artists were using to cross over much bigger in the US market – a space that's somewhere between Otis Redding and Joe Cocker, but nicely rough around the edges too. Titles include "Runaway People", "Disaster Area", "That's What I Feel", and a version of "Hard Day's Night". CD

Atlantic/Friday Music, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 36.99
Hard heavy soul from The Wicked Pickett – and virtually a blueprint for the heavier sound of Muscle Shoals to come – as Wilson Pickett was to that soul scene what Otis Redding had been to the Memphis world of Stax Records! These aren't Wilson's first recordings – but as with Aretha Franklin at Atlantic, the singer really found a way to focus his talents and come on strong – with a hard-biting sound that made him one of the leading lights of the label during the second half of the 60s! Rick Hall and Tom Dowd produced the material, and tracks include classics like "Mustang Sally", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Funky Broadway", "Soul Dance Number Three", "It's Too Late", "I Found A Love", "634-5789", "If You Need Me", "Don't Fight It", "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love", "Ninety-Nine & A Half Won't Do" and "In The Midnight Hour".

Little Johnny TaylorSoul Full Of Blues – Little Johnny Talyor's Greatest Hits ... LP
Galaxy, 1968. Very Good ... $6.99
The title's a bit of a misnomer, given that Little Johnny Taylor wasn't the biggest hitmaker of the 60s – but the album's a killer batch of his best work for the Galaxy label – work that's definitely the "soul full of blues" promised in the title! The style here's a bit like Bobby Blue Bland at his best – bluesy, but with a much more sophisticated feel overall, and certainly some jazz phrasing that comes in from time to time – all to push Johnny much more into the soul side of the spectrum for the 60s. There's almost an Otis Redding feel at times – and the backings by Ray Shanklin certainly show a Memphis influence. Titles include "Part Time Love", "Help Yourself", "If You Love Me Like You Say", "One More Chance", "I Smell Trouble", and "Somebody's Got To Pay". LP, Vinyl record album

Stax/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1960s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $34.99
A long-overdue collection of the wealth of work that Carla Thomas did for Stax Records in the 60s – the wonderfully rich first section of her career, when the label was working in strong partnership with Atlantic Records! Carla's the daughter of Memphis soul legend Rufus Thomas – who first brought her to Stax, and helped launch her career – yet right from the start, it was clear that the younger Thomas was a star waiting to shine on her own – one of the first deep soul divas of the 60s to also showcase a strength for more sophisticated styles too – a bit like the blend that Aretha Franklin was recording at Columbia before moving to Atlantic – territory that Carla Thomas clearly held first in the heart of the label! The box brings together 94 tracks in all – a huge amount of Stax material, including all her duets with Otis Redding and Rufus Thomas – plus singles and b-sides too – all with a great presentation and a huge booklet of notes. Titles include "Let Me Be Good To You (live)", "Let It Be Me", "Night Time Is The Right Time", "What Have You Got To Offer Me", "Never Let You Go", "It Takes Two", "Knock On Wood", "Fate", "Looking Back", "For You", "I Didn't Believe", "The Puppet", "What A Fool I've Been", "The Life I Live", "I Fall To Pieces", "Winter Snow", "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby", "No Time To Lose", "How Do You Quit", and lots lots more!

WinstonsColor Him Father ... CD
Metromedia/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... On February 18, 2022
The one and only album ever cut by The Winstons – an obscure mixed-race soul combo who had roots in Otis Redding's touring band, and who hit big with a soul Grammy in 1969 for the title track to this one, "Color Him Father". The cut's an amazing document of its time, a sweet little story-song about a boy who's lost his dad in the war (Vietnam?), and who grows to love the new guy that his mom is dating. Sounds sappy, but it's one of the most compelling soul singles of the 60s – and is always a treat to hear. The other big cut on the record is the classic breakbeat track "Amen Brother", which is an instrumental reading of the gospel standard, done in a fast-funk style that's been sampled for years – both by hip hoppers and by drum n bass producers! (Noteworthy, too, is the fact that this 33rpm album offers a bonus on the cut that the 45rpm single does not – you can play the album at 45rpm to speed up the break in the track, getting a great jungle effect!) The rest of the record is pretty good – but mostly features the group trying to cover work by other artists, on songs like "The Chokin Kind", "The Greatest Love", "Everyday People", and "Only The Strong Survive".

Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really started getting down and dirty, and hitting on all burners in the funk department. This tasty set features 21 tracks from those exiting years –many of them only ever issued on singles, and a few of them by some of the label's more famous LP artists – but all of them with a nice Memphis funky groove! Titles include "Turn Your Damper Down" by Rufus Thomas, "Broadway Freeze" by Harvey Scales, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Dryer" by Roy Lee Johnson, "She's My Old Lady Too" by Lee Sain, "Slipped & Tripped" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Brothers & Sisters" by Kim Weston, "Movin Dancer" by Bobby Holley, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "A Man Never Knows" by Chris & Shack, "Grab A Handful" by Art Jerry Miller, "I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)" by Hot Sauce, "Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone" by Inez Foxx, "Sock Soul" by The Bar Kays, and "Getting Funky Round Here" by Black Nasty!

VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... CD
Stax/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The MGs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Circuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

Massive music from this legendary label – a host of classic tracks from Stax Records, nestled nicely into one double-length collection! The package does a great job of covering the full range of Stax sounds – from deep soul to funky soul to group soul, bluesy soul, and lots more too. A handful of tracks here are from the 1968 and before generation – that time when Stax and Atlantic Records had a tight relationship – and the rest are from later years, when Stax was really humming on its own with a host of righteous music! Titles include "Show Me How" by The Emotions, "I've Never Found A Girl" by Eddie Floyd, "Soul Finger" by The Bar-Kays, "Private Number" by Judy Clay & William Bell, "Touch A Hand Make A Friend" by The Staple Singers, "Last Night" by The Mar-Keys, "You Don't Miss Your Water" by William Bell, "Never Can Say Goodbye" by Isaac Hayes, "Behind Closed Doors" by Little Milton, "Soul Limbo" by Booker T & The MGs, "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get" by The Dramatics, "Hearsay" by The Soul Children, "Respect" by Otis Redding, and "Dedicated To The One I Love" by The Temprees.

2 of Jackie's more unusual albums for Brunswick – both from the early New York years, back to back on one CD. By Special Request features Jackie running through a set of mostly standards – doing them in a jazzier style than usual, but all with the soulful vocals that you'd expect. Titles include "Tenderly", "Mood Indigo", "One More Time", "I'm Comin On Back To You", "Lonely Life", "The Way I Am", and "Try A Little Tenderness", done as a soul tune years before Otis Redding's version! At The Copa is one of Jackie Wilson's more supper clubby recordings, with a lot of show stuff and standards, and a few medleys of tracks. Still, it's nice to hear him live, and although he's not shouting, he's still pretty soulful, or about as soulful as Sam Cooke was at the Copa. Titles include "A Perfect Day", "Love For Sale", "The Way I Am", and "I Love Them All". CD

✨✧ Charles BradleyBlack Velvet (limited edition box set with bonus EP, slipmat & book) ... LP
Dunham/Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The great Charles Bradley left this planet all too soon – and although we've got this final album of music to enjoy, it's only a partial consolation for Bradley's early departure! The set's maybe a bit like some of the albums of Otis Redding material that were issued after his passing – in that there's some cuts here that were singles, mixed with unissued songs that really show Bradley on top of his game – working strongly with the Menehan Street Band at a level that really has us wanting more! Some of these tunes have a sharply righteous vibe – maybe even more edge than before from Charles – which makes the whole thing not just a completely essential addition to his catalog, but also a way of pointing towards a future that might have been. Titles include "Can't Fight The Feeling", "Luv Jones", "I Feel A Change", "Black Velvet", "Fly Little Girl", "Victim Of Love (electric version)", "Slip Away", and "Heart Of Gold". This version features a heavy velvet box, a business card, a black velvet slipmat, a photo book, inner sleeves – and a bonus EP, with the five bonus tracks "Message From Charles", plus stripped-down mixes of "Loving You Baby", "How Long", "Strictly Reserved For You", and "The World". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl pressing – with bonus EP, "Black Velvet" slipmack, business card, book and download – all in a black velvet covered box!)

✨✧ Sharon Jones & The Dap-KingsJust Dropped In To See What Condition Our Rendition Is In ... LP
Daptone, 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare work from Sharon Jones – and a record that's a bit different than some of her other work for the Daptone label! The set features the group doing cover versions of tracks by other artists – some that appeared as singles over the years, others commissioned for projects, and a few that never saw the light of day at all – brought together here to make a unique posthumous album from Sharon and the Dap-Kings! If you know the tightness of the group, and Jones' classic style of soul vocals, you'll know you're in for a treat – a bit like when Otis Redding might have taken on a familiar tune for Stax – in a lineup that includes "Inspiration Information", "Take Me With U", "What Have You Done For Me Lately", "Signed Sealed Delivered", "Just Dropped In", "Giving Up", "Rescue Me", "In The Bush", "It Hurts To Be Alone", and "Trespasser". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black vinyl pressing – with download!)

✨✧ George PerkinsCryin' In The Streets ... CD
Night Train International, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest singers of the south finally gets his own CD! George Perkins will forever be remembered for his amazing single "Crying In The Streets" – an obscure piece of wax that has attained the same legendary fame as work by James Carr or Otis Redding – and this 22 track CD is the first time much of his work has been presented in a proper format. The CD includes tracks from the years 1968 to 1979 – tracing George's evolution as a singer during the 70s – from sadder ballad-type material, into a funky kind of mode, into work that has him continuing to grow at a level that matches some of the bigger southern acts of his time. We're surprised at the depth of the set, and how many great tracks there are in the package – and we're placing this one proudly on the shelf next to our original beat up 45 of "Crying In The Streets"! Titles include "Crying In The Streets (parts 1 & 2)", "A Man In Love", "Groove Making", "No Need For A Black Man To Cry", "Helping Hand (parts 1 & 2)", "Baby You Saved Me", "When You Try To Use A Good Man", "Be Proud (parts 1 & 2)", and "How Can A Broke Man Survive".

✨✧ VariousStax Of Funk – The Funky Truth ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really started getting down and dirty, and hitting on all burners in the funk department. This tasty set features 21 tracks from those exiting years –many of them only ever issued on singles, and a few of them by some of the label's more famous LP artists – but all of them with a nice Memphis funky groove! Titles include "Turn Your Damper Down" by Rufus Thomas, "Broadway Freeze" by Harvey Scales, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Dryer" by Roy Lee Johnson, "She's My Old Lady Too" by Lee Sain, "Slipped & Tripped" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Brothers & Sisters" by Kim Weston, "Movin Dancer" by Bobby Holley, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "A Man Never Knows" by Chris & Shack, "Grab A Handful" by Art Jerry Miller, "I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)" by Hot Sauce, "Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone" by Inez Foxx, "Sock Soul" by The Bar Kays, and "Getting Funky Round Here" by Black Nasty!
