LATEST ALBUMS

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...

love committee front

The classic club groover by Love Committee, and one of the most sought-after on Gold Mind/Salsoul – a soulful set of club classics that almost beats most of the other work by its contemporaries! The session’s grounded in some...

The Exciters  Caviar and Chitlins

I’ve always wondered why The Exciters didn’t enjoy greater commercial successes given their talents.  Brenda Reid had an amazing voice – tough, but highly commercial and was more than the equal to scores of contemporaries who enjoyed far more...

Ronnie Dyson front

The finest album of Ronnie’s career, Philly stalwart Thom Bell’s productions dominate the LP and are the best thing that ever happened to the New York-raised actor/singer. Ronnie’s full-throated, youthful tenor and Bell’s lush arrangements are quite compatible. The...

Oneness Of Juju ‎African Rhythms front

One of the most groundbreaking bands of their time. From early avant-garde jazz work on the Strata East label to their later fusions of Afrobeat, funk and spiritual jazz, Oneness stand as a huge influence for today’s jazz scene....

The Continental IV - 1972 - Dream World front

When mentioning the soul greats from the 60’s and 70’s, rarely do the Continental IV (4)receive mention. My first exposure to their charming harmony and soulful vibe was with a song “I Don’t Have You” (1970). I was immediately...

prince dirty mind front

Neither For You nor Prince was adequate preparation for the full-blown masterpiece of Prince’s third album, Dirty Mind. Recorded in his home studio, with Prince playing nearly every instrument, Dirty Mind is a stunning, audacious amalgam of funk, new...

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...

Eramus Hall ‎Your Love Is My Desire Front

One of the last great soul albums on the Westbound label! Eramus Hall have a vague P-Funk connection – and according to legend, the band were given their name by George Clinton, who had seen a building in Chicago...

Mokie, J.J. & R.O.B. ‎– Speed Of Light front

Lamont Johnson in 1972 he helmed an ambitious independant soul-funk album called “Speed Of Light” by Mokie, J.J. and R.O.B. This time around, Johnson produced, wrote most of the tracks and played keyboards. The styles range from southern soul...

Vivian Reed Brown Sugar front

A mix of mid 70s pop soul styles with a dash of disco – still held together nicely by Vivan’s vocals! Horace Ott handled the arrangements, Hugo & Luigi produced, and titles include “Solid Rock”, “Baby You’re A Good...

sylvia front

Perhaps it was the release of “Je t’aime (moi non plus)” in early 1969 that truly launched an era of erotic and sexualmusic. Using the word ‘sexual’, I don’t mean ‘sexy.’ What is sexy is completely in one’s head...

Samuel Jonathan Johnson front

Stellar spiritual soul from Samuel Jonathan Johnson, an artist who only ever cut this one full album (in 1978 for Columbia Records) during his career, an album we’d rank right up there with the best ’70s work by jazzy...

gregory-james-front

Chicago soul on Brunswick from the ‘Gregory James Edition’, formerly known as the ‘Prophets Of Soul’ Massively mellow funk, heavy on the electric keys! The group’s led by the team of keyboardist Gregory Bibb and guitarist James Norris –...
