with reviews

Allen Toussaint - Life, Love and Faith front

Excellent work from New Orleans soul legend Allen Toussaint – and a set that may well be his funkiest album ever! The set features 12 tracks from the early 70s – a time when Toussaint was mixing a bit...

James Mason Rhythm Of Life front

One of our favorite albums ever – and every track is a masterpiece! The album was originally cut for the tiny Chiaroscuro label in 1977 – and it’s got a sound that’s unlike anything else we can think of...

Leon-Haywood-Come-And Get-Your Some front

Leon Haywood’s best album from the 70s! After working as a keyboardist and sometimes vocalist for a number of years – making some strong and some tentative entries into the soul genre – Leon really exploded with this album,...

The Lewis Connection front

Rare funk from the same Minneapolis scene that gave the world Prince – a legendary indie set from the end of the 70s, put together by Lewis brothers Pierre and Andre! Despite their French names, the duo have a...

J.R. Bailey - Just Me 'n You front

J. R. Bailey has been an obscure name even in well-informed Soul circles. Nevertheless, he’s one of the few Soul artists who mastered an urban, sophisticated, jazzy Soul style. His style resembles most closely Leroy Hutson, Leon Ware, and...

Jeffree front

Smooth and sweet soul from Jeffree – an unsung 70s vocalist with a really great approach! Jeffree, aka Jeff Perry, is the brother of Greg Perry – and works in a similar style to his more famous brother –...

Aretha Franklin young, gifted, and black front

Young, Gifted, and Black is one of the soul masterpieces of the early 70’s. It was a extraordinary task. A monumental one, yet I have finally come up with a favorite Aretha album. “Young, Gifted and Black” has won...

Ann Peebles ‎– I Can't Stand The Rain front

Easily our favorite album ever by Ann Peebles – not just for the beathead title track, but also because it seems to be the one record where she brings a bit something extra to the studio! The sound is...

Zulema Mr.Z

Excellent early work by Zulema – high-minded and righteous soul, with a really expansive sound that’s in keeping with the best on Sussex at the time! The arrangements are nicely complicated – arranged by Bobby Taylor and Gene Page...

Lamont Dozier  Love And Beauty front

A massive album by Lamont Dozier – probably his best ever! Every cut’s a winner, and the LP shines with a sharpness and tightness that’s missing from some of Lamont’s other LPs from the 70s. The songwriting is impeccable...

Junie - 1975 - When We Do front

By WTCproductions Junie Morrison is the zelig of funk, working with both Ohio Players and Funkadelic as well as releasing a string of quirky solo albums. Described by George Clinton as “the most phenomenal musician on the planet” he co-wrote...

Splendor 1979 front

Brilliant and sought after disco LP, which features (amongst others) the talents of Earth Wind & Fire‘s Philip Bailey. The front cover also has great artwork, showing shoes in the shape of animals falling from the sky over the...

The Nite-Liters - A-Nal-Y-Sis (1973) front

A masterpiece of hard and heavy funk – from one of the best bands of the early 70s! The Nite Liters were a legendary funky combo that provided the backing for some of New Birth‘s best albums – but...

the sylvers 1972 front

The first album by The Sylvers – a hard soulful band made up of youngsters from LA, but who had a lot more going on than some of the other kiddie-soul bands of the early 70s! The group’s a...

Floaters - Float On (1977) front

Their classic, with the great long version of “Float On“, which is a monster soul cut that stands tall with steppers and rappers alike. It’s probably the best track they ever did, and it’s all here in a version...

rance allen group a soulfull experience

A couple of decades before such stylistic melding would became popular among gospel artists, Rance Allen and his brothers merged the dynamics of soulful rhythms, gospel lyrics, and Rance’s testimonial lead vocals. This effort was produced by acclaimed Stax...
