Dee Dee Sharp Happy 'bout The Whole Thing front

One of the very best albums from the heyday of the Philly Sound, this LP was recorded at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios with the fabulous musicians of MFSB. Made in the mid seventies, Dee Dee Sharp’s rich powerful voice...

Jake Sollo Front

One of the tightest African funk records we’ve ever heard – a set that was recorded in London, and has this really warm clubby vibe all the way through! There’s a mix of African roots and disco grooves going...

The Brothers Don't Stop Now front

The “Brothers” appeared to be little more than a New York set of studio players, led by Bhen Lanzaroni – but they did an amazing job of replicating a Philly instrumental sound, with plenty of heavy bass at the...

percy sledge When a Man Loves a Woman front

The charismatic Alabama-bred soulman’s first album was naturally built around the peerless and classic “When a Man Loves a Woman”, the first Southern Soul track that became a No. 1 Pop hit. The title-track is soul perfection; the lamenting,...

keith barrow - 1977 - keith barrow

Keith Barrow was a 70s soul singer whe made an impact but never reached his full potential due to his untimely death at 29. In the small time he recorded he displayed what a true artist he was with...

Tommy Hunt - A Sign Of the Times - front

Rare 70s work from the great Tommy Hunt – a singer who’s best known for his Scepter Records solo work of the 60s, or his early days in The Flamingos – but who steps out here with a completely...

The Patterson Singers front

I know it is simplistic, but it is hard not to draw comparisons between The Patterson Singers and The Staple Singers.   Like The Staples, under the auspices of front man/keyboardist Robert Patterson, The Patterson’s started their recording career as...

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...

Instant Funk Get Down With The Philly Jump front

First LP from Instant Funk including the killer funky instrumental tune “Get down The philly jump” and also ” so glad i’m the one” a very good modern soul tune from 1976. Great early work, cut back at a...

Robert B Hudmon Jr was born on 6 August 1954 at West Point, Georgia and started his singing carer at a very early age. By the time he was 15 he was with Bill Lowery in Atlanta, with staffer...

Stephanie Mills For The First Time

A really unusual album from the young Stephanie Mills – not only because it captures the singer at a wonderful early point in her career, when she was still open to a rich range of expression – but also...

aquarian dream - front cover

A fantastic Norman Connors soul-funk-fusion project. Amazing boogie funk with strong jazz influences all created for the dancefloor. Entire albums is good but East 6th Street, Guitar Talk and the dancer Phoenix stand out. A must have. An acclaimed...

Patti Drew ‎– Tell Him fr

Patti Drew’s 1967 debut album “Tell Him” may actually be her least consistent, containing as it does 3 covers of Southern soul staples. It’s perfectly forgiveable,  as Capitol was still feeling around for a proper image for the recently...

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...
