Rufus & Chaka Khan – 1977 – Ask Rufus

This is a wonderful slice of underrated late seventies soul gold. It has a fantastic funky edge too with just a hint of a disco feel on the more uptempo tracks. This LP is the perfect blend of Rufus’ songwriting and production and the stunning…

Bobby Caldwell – 1978 – Bobby Caldwell

Bobby Caldwell is one of only a handful of white vocalists (Van Morrison and Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall, to name a couple more) who legitimately transcended the blue-eyed soul tag. Caldwell’s genuine mix of R&B and jazz signatures as well as his bittersweet yet buttery vocal tones conjure up images…

Margie Joseph – 1974 – Sweet Surrender

A truly excellent Soul album, sumptuously produced, arranged and orchestrated by Arif Mardin. It sounds on par with the best Aretha Franklin’s albums, due to the musicians involved: Cornell Dupree, Richard Tee, Chuck Rainey, Bernard Purdie, Ralph MacDonald … The back singers include artists who recorded their own solo albums: Cissy Houston, Judy Clay, Gwen…

Barbara Acklin – 1969 – Seven Days Of Night

An excellent second album by Barbara Acklin – and a perfect demonstration of her really unique Chicago soul talents! Acklin’s really at the cusp of two generations here – at one level still with some of the sweetness of the earlier style of 60s girl…

Eugene Mc Daniels – 1971 – Headless Heroes Of The Apocalypse

A monster album that’s gone onto influence a generation – but which was barely recognized at the time! Singer Eugene McDaniels had scored big with some pop hits in the 60s under the name Gene McDaniels – but here, he steps out in a righteous…

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – It’s a Holiday Soul Party

Holiday albums are a longstanding pop tradition, from crooners like Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole taking on “O Holy Night” to more modern reinventions by Willie Nelson, James Brown and Bob Dylan. Now, following up their Grammy-nominated 2014 LP, Give the People What They Want, Sharon…

Curtis Mayfield – 1970 – Curtis

This is undoubtedly one of the most important albums of seventies soul. Besides the awesome opener, Curtis isn’t making stuff as funky as he does on Superfly, but I feel this is about on a par. This is probably the most sophisticated Chicago soul I’ve…

Nancy Wilson – 1968 – Welcome to My Love

In Her Loving Memory Most of Nancy Wilson’s late ’60s releases contained four or five good tunes and the rest would be filler from the day’s batch of B-grade pop material. Her 1967 date Welcome to My Love, though, is an exception. It offers a…

Dionne Warwick ‎- 1963 – Presenting Dionne Warwick

Most pop-rock albums of the early 1960s were not conceived of as long-playing recordings, instead throwing on a hit or two with a bunch of quickly recorded filler. But while several of the songs on Presenting Dionne Warwick did show up on her early singles,…

Savoir-Flair – 1983 – Savoir-Flair

The Savoir-Flair album is an excellent eighties funk, mixed with smooth modern soul. A very rare private press LP –  Soul, Funk from Texas, check rates sold here.  Dallas artist Roger Boykin at the helm, producing, arranging and playing plethora of instruments, with Cassandra Wilson…

Akwassa – 1977 – In The Groove

Classic Nigerian afro-funk record originally released in 1977. Highly sought after with original copies going for hundreds of pounds and packed with dance floor fillers! AKWASSA were stars in their palce. “In the groove” was a perfect album that would appeal to each and every…

Cymande – 1972 – Cymande

Classic first album by the legendary British dub funk outfit Cymande – done with that gatefold cover and everything! A key part of the crumbling British colonial network that produced some excellent music in the postwar years, Cymande was comprised mostly of West Indians who’d…

The Free Movement – 1972 – I’ve Found Someone of My Own

The six-member group Free Movement hit in 1971 with “I’ve Found Someone of My Own“, a Top Five pop/Top 20 R&B hit on Decca Records. The group’s sound was similar to the 5th Dimension. Godoy Colbert (the Pilgrim Travelers, the Pharaohs), Josephine Brown (the Five Bells of Joy), Cheryl Conley, Jennifer Gates, and brothers Adrian and Claude…

Mickey Stevenson – 1972 – Here I Am

Here I Am combines two singles and an album recorded for British independent Ember. The tracks were recorded, probably in New York, late 1971 through 1972 with top-notch session players led by arranger Luchi DeJesus. Both the 45s and the original LP are now very…

The Isley Brothers – I’ll Be Home For Christmas

This was an excellent buy for the holiday season. Ron Isley’s sultry voice is perfect for the tempo and rhythm of the holiday classics. It gives you a warm at home filling with the traditional songs as well as the catchy new holiday tracks they’ve…

Touch – 1977 – Energizer

Wonderfully tight grooves from Touch – a group who step out here with their debut album, but who had been playing for years on a variety of other studio work! The core combo is wonderful – lots of choppy guitar over the tight bass and…
