LATEST ALBUMS

with reviews

midnight movers front

The second, and last, album by the magnificent Midnight Movers. Whereas their premier release, 1970’s ‘Do It In The Road‘, is a bit rougher and rawer, ‘Follow The Wind’ nonetheless is another amazing funk fest, crucial for Mama Earth’s...

soul searchers front

No group ever defined a city and sound as Chuck Brown and The Soul Searchers did Washington, DC and go-go music. This is the album that launched their musical movement and established Chuck Brown as the “Godfather of Go-Go.”...

The Artistics front

A well-titled set from one of the greatest soul groups to ever come from Chicago – a sublime quartet who had a way of voicing their tunes that was really head and shoulders above most of their contemporaries! This...

Michael Henderson In The Night Time front

You don’t get to play with someone like Miles Davis for six years unless you really can hold your own. And bassist Michael Henderson did just that, working with the jazz great from 1970 until ’76, recording some great...

Reuben Wilson  Blue Mode  front

Heavy funk from the mighty Reuben Wilson – one of his first few albums for Blue Note, and a solid soulful groover that’s right up there with Lou Donaldson’s work for the label at the time! Tracks are nice...

the mighty pope front

Heavily involved in the soul/funk/reggae scene in Toronto since arriving from Jamaica in 1965, the Mighty Pope (fantastic name) reinvented himself just a little bit to catch onto the disco craze. The album largely manages to avoid the sappy...

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Heavy duty fuzzy funk  and a landmark album from one of the most Hendrix-inspired groups of the early 70s! The style here is guitar funk with plenty of rock thrown in – all really fuzzed-up in production, and often...

east coast 1973 front

An extremely rare soul album originally released in 1973, East Coast’s self titled album features drummer Larry Blackmon, who served as front man for the hit group Cameo; and a cast of session greats including Pat Grant (trombone); Gwen...

The Sons Of Truth A Message From The Ghetto front

The Sons Of Truth album is by far the most sought-after on Stax’s Gospel Truth subsidiary. Formed by Calvin Fair in Detroit – who went on to form Gospel Unlimited – they were very much of their time. The...

mighty ryeders - help us spread the message front

The birth of the Mighty Ryeders took place in April of 1977 (A.D.). Within a month after those first breaths, this gifted eight member group began setting the stage to be best or among the best recording and entertainment...

Beginning Of The End front

One of the rarest funky records of all time – the hard-to-find second album by Beginning Of The End! This West Indian combo hit it big with their first album on Alston, but this second set, for some strange...

Gloria Barnes

Gloria Barnes got her start as “Towanda” Barnes, releasing 45’s on both The Groovy Label in 1966 and A&M Records in 1969. “Uptown”, her one and only full-length offering, came two years later in 1971 on the somehat obscure,...

Big Black If You're Diggin' front

Soul/rock with some strong psych flavored moments, featuring fuzz guitar and lots of Afro/Latin rhythms. So this is what it was supposed to sound like!  Big Black’s “If You’re Diggin’ What You’re Doin’…” is a grin-inducing slice of early...

South Shore Commission front

  South Shore Commission’s claim to fame are the disco classics “Free Man,” “We’re on the Right Track,” and “Train Called Freedom.” All three were mid-’70s hits produced by Philly soul songwriter/singerBunny Sigler and included on South Shore Commission,...

Kitty And the the Haywoods Excuse Me I've Got a Life to Catch

By George O’Leary The Chicago-based all-female trio – and then quartet – Kitty & The Haywoods (sisters Kitty, Vivian and Mary Ann at first – joined in 1976 by Vivian’s daughter Cynthia) – began their career singing commercial jingles in...

Front - LP Cover - RS 7201 - 1968

Incredibly consistent soul jazz LP that just grooves all the way through.  Had me scrambling to find their first LP as well which is as good as this.  Elements of the Blue Note label’s sound of the period can...
