Cover Artist Title Label Catalog Year Cover LP Price

5th Dimension, The The Magic Garden Soul SCS-92001 1968 VG+ VG+ $9.00
A little too MOR for my tastes, but it may be their creative zenith (thanks to Jimmy Webb) and gets lots of attention from psych fans.

100 Proof Aged In Soul Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed Hot Wax HA 704 1971 VG+ VG+ $35.00
Simply a lost soul classic ... Post-Motown Holland-Dozier-Holland may never have released anything else this good.

100 Proof Aged In Soul Somebody's Been Sleeping In My Bed Hot Wax HA 704 1971 NM NM $40.00
Second copy - still sealed !!!

Later and lesser know collection from the late Barbara Acklin.

Adams, Johnny (RIP) From the Heart Rounder 2044 1984 VG VG $10.00
His debut for Rounder.  Mixed effort which is simply a little too diverse for its own good.

Afrique Soul Makossa Mainstream MRL 394 1973 VG+ VG+ $100.00
The title track was a massive hit for this New York based studio ensemble.  While nothing else on the set is quite as good, the album's still better than 90% of the competition.

Atkinson, Sweet Pea Don't Walk Away Island/Ze 90007-1 1982 VG+ VG+ $7.00
Was (Not Was) had a secret weapon and it was this guy !!!

Average White Band Feel the Fret Atlantic SD-19207 1979 VG VG $4.50
Late inning set that isn't particularly distinguished.  (Cut out notch along bottom seam; gatefold sleeve; original inner sleeve.)

Baby Huey (RIP) The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend Curtom CS-8007 1970 VG VG SOLD
Sadly he didn't even live long enough to see this album released.  Shame, since it's an engaging mix of soul and rock moves.

Banks, Darrell (RIP) Here To Stay Volt VOS- 1969 VG VG $120.00
His second and final release ... excellent posthumous release that ranks as an overlooked soul classic.

Barrino Brothers, The Livin' High Off the Goodness of Your Love Invictus ST-5811 1973 VG+ VG+ $140.00
Excellent North Carolina-based quartet on Holland-Dozier-Holland's label.  Their niece Fantasia Barrino went on to win the fourth (?) year of American Idol.

Their first album in six years and a nice return to form.

Their best album ???

Booker T. & the MGs Hip Hug-Her Stax S 717 1967 VG+ VG+ $15.00
Second copy ...

Al Jackson is gone, but the survivors (with Willie Hall handling drums) acquit themselves with dignity and grace.

Second copy ...

Brother To Brother In the Bottle Turbo TU-7103 1974 VG VG $60.00
Excellent obscure mid-1970s St. Louis outfit ... top-10 R&B hit with the title track.

Brother To Brother Let Your Mind Be Free Turbo TU-7105 1975 VG VG $20.00
Not quite as good as the previous set.

Brown, James Papa's Got a Brand New Bag King 936 1965 VG VG $25.00
Well, the title track went # 1 R&B and top-10 pop ... the rest of it is pretty throwaway.

Brown, James Cold Sweat King 1020 1967 VG+ VG+ $30.00
Well, the title track went # 1 R&B and top-10 pop ... it's easily the highpoint on this set.

Brown, James ISay iT Lod - I'm Black and I'm Proud King 5-1047 1969 VG+ VG+ $30.00
Killer title track and a couple of other nice ones ...  Original gatefold sleeve.

Burke, Solomon We're Almost Home MGM SE-4830 1972 NM NM $25.00
Criminally overlooked second LP for MGM.  You can't even find it listed in most discographies ...

Cameron, G.C. You're What's Missing In My Life Motown M6-880S1 1971 VG VG $20.00
Third solo release from the ex-Spinners lead man ...

Carter, Clarence Hooked On Love Ichiban ICH-1016 1990 VG+ VG+ $9.00
Couple of great numbers on this one ...  'Grandpa Can't Fly His Kite' and 'I Feel It'.

Classic slice of Chicago soul (okay Cash was originally from St. Louis).

Second copy.

Chandler, Gene Get Down 20th Century Fox T-576 1976 VG VG $8.00

Excellent set of classic mid-70s group soul.  See my detailed review.

Clayton, Merry (RIP) Keep Your Eye On the Sparrow Ode 77030 1975 VG VG $18.00
Surprisingly taunt LP from a woman who's performed on literally thousands of rock albums over her career.

One of the Holland-Dozier-Holland's post-Motown crowning glories ...

Great sophomore release from General Johnson and company ...

Continental IV, The Dream World Jay Walking JWL 1020 1973 VG+ VG+ $40.00
Classic also-rans in the early-1970s soul vocal group competition.  Includes all five of their Jay Walking singles. May be a reissue.  Anyone know how to tell?

Cropper, Steve With a Little Help from My Friends Volt VOS-6006 1971 VG VG $15.00
Cropper's solo debut - surprisingly good.

Davis, Betty Nasty Girl Island ILPS-9329 1975 VG VG SOLD
Her third and last studio set.

Second pressing ...

Dramatics, The The Dramatic Jackpot ABC ABCD-867 1975 VG VG $10.00
Their second release for ABC is also one of their most consistent efforts.  (Original gatefold sleeve.)

Edwards, Dennis Don't Look Any Further Gordy 6057GL 1983 VG VG $9.00
Temptation steps out with an okay solo effort.

Emotions, The Sunshine Stax STX-4100 1977 VG+ VG+ $5.50
With Columbia Records raking in the bucks, Stax came out with this posthumous release ... still in shrink wrap (opened).

Emotions, The Sincerely Red Label RLLP-001 1984 VG VG $6.00
Kind of a bland mid-1980s comeback - lots of synthesizers and a little bit shrill for my ears.

Flames, The Burning Soul! Rave RMG 1232 1967 VG VG $150.00
South African soul that is every bit as good as anything in the US catalog ...

Floyd, Eddie Knock On Wood Stax S-714 1967 VG+ VG+ $100.00
One of the best LPs ever released by Stax and a soul classic ...

Foundations, The Digging the Foundations Uni 73058 1968 VG VG $8.00
Their final and least available LP.

Mono pressing of this classic !!!

Franklin, Aretha Amazing Grace Atlantic SD-2-906 1972 VG VG $20.00

Funkadelic Cosmic Slop Westbound WB-2022 1973 VG+ VG+ $30.00
Second copy ...

Funkadelic Tales of Kidd Funkadelic Westbound W-227 1976 VG VG $20.00
Their last release for Westbound is largely outtakes and previously unreleased material ...

Excellent Washington, D.C. based soul trio (still in shrink wrap).  One of my favorites recent finds.

Gaye, Marvin How Sweet It Is To be Loved By You Tamla TM-258 1965 VG VG $40.00
Nice compilation of earlier singles and some new stuff.

Gaye, Marvin and Kim Weston Take Two Tamla T 270 1966 VG VG $40.00
Interesting, if erratic collaboration - see detailed review.

Gaye, Marvin   In the Groove Tamla TS 285 1968 VG VG $40.00
Fantastic, if overlooked LP..

Gaye, Marvin  (and Tammi Terrell) Easy Tamla TS-294 1969 VG VG $20.00
The third collaboration, though it may have been Gaye and Valerie Simpson ...

Gaye, Marvin and Diana Ross  Diana & Marvin Motown N6-803 S1 1973 VG VG $15.00
It actually grows on you and is a pretty good collaboration.  See detailed review.

Gaye, Marvin Soundtrack "Trouble Man" Tamla T322L 1973 VG VG $10.00
Worth the cost for the title track ...

Gaye, Marvin Marvin Gaye's Greatest Hits Tamla T6-346S1 1976 VG VG $8.00
Abbreviated best of set ...

Gaye, Marvin Marvin Gaye Live! Tamla T6-366S1 1974 VG VG $8.00
See detailed review ...

Gaye, Marvin I Want You Tamla T342S1 1976 VG+ VG+ $15.00
The title track's a classic, rest not as impressive.

One of Motown's best concert sets ...

The ultimate 'screw you' witch LP ...

Glass Family, The Crazy! JDC  10688 1978 NM NM $20.00
To be honest, this disco album is so bad that it's actually kind of attractive ... pressed on clear red vinyl.

Globetrotters, The The Globetrotters Kirshner KS-108 1970 VG VG $100.00
Super cool slice of bubble-soul ...  One of the harder Kirshner label products to score.

Gray, Dobie Loving Arms MCA MCA-371 1973 VG VG $10.00
Not his creative zenith, but not bad either.

Greaves, R.B. R.B. Greaves ATCO SD 33-311 1969 VG VG $10.00
Excellent, if overlooked debut for the 'Take a Letter Maria' guy ...

Greaves, R.B. R.B. Greaves Bareback BB 3333 1977 VG+ NM $10.00
Excellent and hard to find sophomore release.

Reissue of the 1969 Hi debut.

Perhaps his last classic mid-1970s LPs.  See detailed review.

Green, Al Livin' For You Hi SHL 32082 1973 VG VG $20.00
Perhaps his last classic mid-1970s LPs.  See detailed review.

Green, Al Al Green Explores Your Mind Hi SHL 32077 1974 VG VG SOLD
One of his top three LPs !

Green, Al Greatest Hits Hi SHL 32092 1975 VG VG $10.00
Simply one of soul's best 'greatest hits' releases.

Green, Al Al Green Is Love Hi SHL 32092 1975 VG VG $10.00
Perhaps his last classic mid-1970s LPs.  See detailed review.

Green, Al Truth N' Time Hi HLP 6009 1979 VG VG $10.00
His last secular LP for some 20 years and it's great !

Green, Al Greatest Hits Volume II Hi SHL-32106 1977 VG+ VG+ $8.00
Another must own set of hits.

Green, Al Tokyo ... Live Motown 5302ML2 1981 VG VG $15.00
Double LP concert set.

Hathaway, Donny Extensions of a Man ATCO SD 7029 1973 VG VG $10.00
His final studio set.  See detailed review.

Heaven and Earth Heaven and Earth Mercury SRM-1-3722 1978 VG VG $50.00
The best of their five studio sets, with Dean Williams replacing original lead singer Michael Brown.

Hebb, Bobby Sunny Philips PHS 600-212 1965 VG VG $10.00
Sadly, most folks only know Hebb based on the mournful title track written in memory of his fallen brother.  The rest of the LP is just as good.  Anyone heard the follow-up?

Hill, Z.Z. In Memorium 1935 - 1984 Malaco MAL 7426 1985 VG VG $10.00
Nice late inning career retrospective ...

Holman, Eddie I Love You ABC ABCS-701 1970 NM NM $30.00
Here's a near mint copy of this hard to find soul monster.  Still in shrink wrap.  Was unopened but I had to check it out and tape it.

Hutch, Willie (RIP) The Mark of the Beast Motown M6-815 S1 1974 VG VG $20.00
He's better known as a writer and producer (5th Dimension, The Jackson Five, Smokey Robinson, etc.), but this set shows he's quiet a talented solo act.

Hutch, Willie (RIP) Concert In Blues Motown M6-854 S1 1976 VG+ VG+ $9.00
He's better known as a writer and producer (5th Dimension, The Jackson Five, Smokey Robinson, etc.), but this set shows he's quiet a talented solo act.

Impressions, The Ridin' High ABC Paramount ABCS-545 1966 VG VG $20.00
Largely overlooked by critics and fans, this is actually one of their stronger sets - no MOR filler unlike many of their earlier releases.

Impressions, The We're a Winner ABC Paramount ABCS-635 1968 VG+ VG+ $25.00
Well the title track was a killer effort ...

Impressions, The It's About Time Cotillion SD-9912 1976 VG VG $10.00
One of their better late career releases ... Nate Evans on lead vocals.

Jackson, Chuck (and Maxine Brown) Saying Something Wand WDM-669 1966 VG+ VG+ $40.00
The title track was an R&B hit, but the whole LP is worth hearing.

Jackson Deon Love Makes the World Go Round Carla 33-188 1966 VG VG $60.00
Forgotten soulster ... the title track is alone worth the admission price ... mono pressing to boot!

James, Jesse Jesse James 20th Century Fox S3197 1968 NM NM $60.00
Excellent little known soulster.  See detailed review.

Isley Brothers, The This Old Heart of Mine Tamla 269 1966 VG+ VG+ $50.00
Their sole Motown LP; mono pressing.

Isley Brothers, The Givin' It Back T-Neck TNS 3008 1971 VG VG+ $20.00
Interesting change in musical direction for these long time soulsters ...  They'd clearly been listing to lots of CSN&Y.

Isley Brothers, The Between the Sheets T-Neck 38647-1 1983 VG VG $6.00
Two hits and lots of filler ...

Isley Jasper Isley Different Drummer CBS Associated AL 40409 1987 VG VG $9.00
Their final collaboration isn't perfect, but certainly has some nice moments on it.  Ernie Isley remains a criminally overlooked rock guitarist.  Anyone have a copy of his solo release on vinyl?

Jackson, Millie Still Caught Up Spring SPR-6708 1975 VG VG $10.00
Perhaps her last really good release

Jackson, Millie Get It Out 'Cha System Spring SP-1-6718 1978 VG VG $10.00
See detailed review.

Jackson, Millie Hard Times Spring SP-1-6737 1980 VG VG $10.00
Not her best; not her worst.

Jimmy James & the Vagabonds (RIP) The New Religion ATCO 33-222 1967 VG+ VG+ $80.00
Surprisingly good Jamaican/UK soul outfit.  The Hit 'Come Softy To Me' is actually one of the weaker songs on the set ...

Joseph, Margie Sweet Surrender Atlantic SD-7277 1974 VG VG $10.00
Here second release for Atlantic ... includes her hit cover of Wings' 'My Love'.

Kelly, Paul Hooked Hogtied & Collared Warner Brothers BS-2812 1974 VG+ VG+ $15.00
Probably worth the price of admission just for the then-scandalous cover art ...

Kennedy, Harrison Hypnotic Music Invictus ST-9806 1972 VG+ VG+ $30.00
Nice solo debut by former Soul Children and Chairmen of the Board vocalist ...

King, Albert King Albert Tomato TOM-6002 1977 VG VG $15.00
Hardly the man's creative zenith ...

King,  Freddie Texas Cannonball Shelter SW-8913 1972 VG VG SOLD
Surprisingly rock oriented effort by this journeyman blues guitarist.

Lance, Major Now Arriving Soul S7-751R1 1978 NM NM $10.00
Lance's late-1970s comeback LP.  (Still in shrink wrap - was opened to play once and tape.)

Larks, The The Jerk Money LP1102 1965 VG VG $50.00
Surprisingly likeable LP even though it's clearly a throwaway set to support the title track hit.

LaSalle, Denise On the Loose Westbound WB2016 1973 VG VG $15.00
Overlooked early-1970s soul classic - worth the admission price just to hear 'A Man Size Job'.

LaSalle, Denise Right Time Right Place Malaco 7417 1984 VG VG $9.00
Wonderful collection of old school soul, LaSalle's growling voice simply sounded great on lyin' and cheatin' tales of woe such as 'Treat Your Man Like a Baby' and 'Good Man Gone Bad'.

Lee, Laura The Best of Laura Lee Hot Wax HA-715 1972 VG+ VG+ $20.00
Covers most of her commercial hits ...

Love Unlimited In Heat 20th Century Fox T-443 1974 VG VG $10.00
Their strongest studio set and three radio hits to boot.

Mad Lads, The A New Beginning Volt VOS-6020 1973 VG VG $25.00
One of Stax/Volt's last classic LPs.  It didn't sell squat, but is simply a great slice of mid-1970s soul.  (Original inner sleeve, small cut out hole in label)

Mahal, Taj The Real Thing Columbia C 30619 /  G 30620 1972 VG VG $20.00
Double album live set ... complete with Tuba solos ...

Mandrill Beast from the East United Artists UA-LA-577-G 1975 VG VG $12.00
To be perfectly honest, not their most impressive outing.

Mar-Keys, The Back To Back Stax 720 1967 VG VG $25.00
Excellent in-concert set from the Mar-Keys and Booker T. and the MG's.

Martha and the Vandellas Dance Party Gordy S-915 1964 VG VG $25.00
One of the first true Motown classics !!!  Stereo pressing.

Masqueraders, The Everybody Wanna Live On ABC/HBS ABCD-421 1975 VG+ VG+ $20.00
Fantastic LP debut from a group that had recorded and toured for some 12 years prior to being signed to Isaac Hayes Hot Buttered Soul label.  Was sealed; opened to tape; still in shrink wrap; cut lower left corner.

Matthews, Milt Milt Matthews H&L H&L 68028 1978 VG VG $20.00
Decent solo effort.  See detailed review for more info.

Mayfield, Curtis (RIP) Curtis In Chicago Recorded Live! Curtom CRS-8108 1973 VG VG $25.00
Nice if too brief live set with some of the old Impressions along for the ride.

Mayfield, Curtis (RIP) Got To Find a Way Curtom CRS-8604 1974 VG VG $10.00
Coming after 'Superfly" this one simply got lost ... too bad since it's a killer LP.

McClure, Bobby The Cherry Album SDEG SDC-4008 1989 NM NM $20.00
Produced and largely written by Swamp Dogg, this is a classic set of old school soul from the late McClure.

Mel and Tim Good Guys Only Win In the Movies Bamboo BMS 8001 1969 VG VG $70.00
Yes, the hit 'Backfield In Motion' is here, as is a first rate collection of late-1960s soul.  Great LP ! 

Mel and Tim Starting All Over Again Stax STS-3007 1972 NM NM $20.00
Classic, if overlooked early-1970s soul set.  (Was sealed; opened to tape.  Still in shrink wrap; small cut out notch in spine.)

Mel and Tim Mel and Tim Stax STS-5501 1973 VG VG SOLD
Their final LP for Stax (their final studio set - period).

Memphis Horns, The Get Up and Dance RCA Victor APL1-2198 1977 VG+ VG+ $15.00
Perhaps not there most consistent effort, but it has a couple of hits and D.J. Rogers kicks the crap out of 'Love Is Happiness'.

Mighty Clouds of Joy Truth Is the Power Myrrh MSB-6681 1977 VG VG $7.00
Decent introduction to their stab at commercialism

Mighty Clouds of Joy Live and Direct ABC AB 1038 1977 VG VG $10.00
Half live and half studio set.

Moments, The With the Movements Stang ST-1030 1977 VG VG $9.00
See the detailed review.

New Direction, The The New Direction Neptune NPLS-200 1970 VG VG $80.00
First release on Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff's Neptune imprint.

New Direction, The The New Direction Neptune NPLS-200 1970 VG VG $80.00
Second copy.

North, Freddie The Magnetic North A-bet 403 1968 VG VG $50.00
Some very nice moments from a guy who may have been better known as a Nashville dj.

O'Jays, The The O'Jays Bell 6082 1975 VG VG $20.00
Nice compilation of their 1967-69 Bell singles.  Surprisingly hard to find.

Originals, The Baby, I'm For Real Soul SS716 1969 VG VG $15.00
Showcasing the late Freddie Gorman, classic, if largely unknown Motown group ...

Parker, Robert (RIP) Barefootin' Nola LP 1001 1965 VG VG $75.00
Killer New Orleans rocker ...  on a par with the city's best.

Payne, Freda Contact Invictus SMAS 1972 VG VG $25.00
This one's worth owning just for the best anti-war song ever written - 'Bring the Boys Back Home'.

Persuaders, The Thin Line Between Love and Hate Win or Lose SD 33-387 1972 VG VG $25.00
If there's such a thing as a lost "classic" soul album, then this is a prime candidate for the title.  The stunning title track with Douglas Scott's anguished vocal is enough to warrant the investment ... 

Persuasions, The We Still Ain't Got No Band MCA MCA-326 1973 VG VG $25.00
For some reason this is one is exceptionally hard to find.  It apparently hasn't yet made it to CD either.  Minor ring and edge wear.

Persuasions, The We Still Ain't Got No Band MCA MCA-326 1973 VG VG $25.00
Second copy.

Pickett, Wilson (RIP) The Wicked Pickett Atlantic 8138 1966 VG VG $35.00
One of the top 5 all time classic soul albums ...  Pickett's seldom been as on fire as this one.  Mono copy to boot !!!

Porter, David Victim of the Joke! - An Opera Enterprise ENS-1019 1971 VG+ VG+ SOLD
I think Porter's released four studio sets over the years ...  We have 'em all and this is the rarest and best of the lot.  Original pressing with the die cut cover.  Good luck finding a copy as nice as this one.

Porter, David Sweat & Love Enterprise ENS-1026 1973 VG VG $20.00
To my ears, the most routine of his solo efforts.

Price, Billy and the Keystone Rhythm Band They Found Me Guilty Green Dolphin GD- 1982 VG VG $10.00
Excellent Pittsburgh-based soul and blues cover band.  Still in shrink wrap; cut corner.

Ray, Don The Garden of Love Polydor PD-1-6150 1978 VG VG $9.00
Ray's best known for his work with disco kingpin Alec Costandinos.  His solo debut's not half bad.  

Redding, Otis (RIP) The Great Otis Redding Sings Soul Ballads Volt 411 1965 VG VG $10.00
Second LP and a classic ...

Redding, Otis (RIP) The Dock of the Bay Volt S-149 1968 VG VG $9.00
Classic posthumous release ...

Ryder, Mitch Detroit-Memphis Experiment Dot DLP-25693 1969 VG VG $30.00
Even though it's billed as a Mitch Ryder LP, for all intents and purposes this is a collaboration with guitarist/producer Steve Cropper.  It may sound like an odd paring, but the results are wonderful.  Another personal favorite !

Sam & Dave Back At 'Cha! United Artists UALA-524-G 1975 NM NM SOLD
Great comeback LP - worth owning just for the blazing cover of Allen Toussaint's "Blinded By Love".  Still in shrink wrap.

Satterfield, Esther The Need To Be A&M SP-3411 1976 VG VG $10.00
I knew I'd heard this voice before, but it wasn't until I started to research the LP that I knew where.  She does have one of those special voices, though it's a shame she's applied it to what is fairly MOR material ...

Scott, Peggy (and Jo Jo Benson) Soulshake SSS International SSS #1 1968 NM NM $25.00
Surprisingly impressive and enjoyable collection from second tier soulsters.  (Played once after opening shrink wrap.)

Screamin' Jay Hawkins What That Is! Philips PHS 600-319 1969 VG VG $40.00
Suitably weird comeback from the man ...

Simon, Joe The Sounds of Simon Spring SPR-4701 1971 VG VG $15.00
Solid mid-career set/

Simone, Nina Black Gold RCA Victor LSP-4248 1969 VG VG SOLD

His classic, if overlooked sophomore release in rare mono ...

Sledge, Percy Percy Sledge's Greatest Hits Atlantic SD--8210 1968 VG VG $10.00
Nice place to start if you're curious to know what else he did beyond 'When a Man Loves a Woman'.

Sledge, Percy I'll Be Your Everything Capricorn CP-0147 1974 VG VG $15.00
Nice return to his Muscle Shoals roots.

Smith Connection, The Under My Wings Music Merchant MM 105 1972 VG VG $80.00
Excellent, if little know Holland-Dozier-Holland associated group.

Soccio, Gino Closer Atlantic SD-16042 1981 VG VG SOLD
Canadian disco ...

South Shore Commission South Shore Commission Wand WDS-6100 1975 VG VG $25.00
Decent Chicago soul/disco that sounds like a Philadelphia International release thanks to producer Bunny Sigler.

Special Delivery Special Delivery Shield #80000 1977 VG VG $40.00
Essentially the second generation band (no Terry Huff involvement this time around).  Nice mix of smooth soul ballads and a couple of up tempo dance tracks. 

Springfield, Dusty A Brand New Me Atlantic SD 8249 1971 VG VG $10.00
Not quite up there with "Dusty In Memphis", but darn close !!!

Staple Singers, The Be What You Are Stax STS-3015 1973 VG VG $10.00
Often overlooked collection that's actually every bit as good as their earlier releases.

Staples, The Pass It On Warner Brothers BS-2945 1976 VG VG $9.00

Another outing with Curtis Mayfield at the production helm. 

Staples, The Turning Point Private I BZ-39460 1984 VG- VG $7.00
Their best release of the 1980s - worth owning just for 'This Is Our Night' and 'Slippery People'.  Minor damage to the back panel. 

Staples, Mavis Only for the Lonely Volt VOS-6010 1970 VG VG $25.00
Her second and perhaps best solo venture.  Minor edge and ring wear; white label promo copy.

Staples, Mavis Oh What a Feeling Warner Brothers BSK-3319 1979 VG VG $9.00
Not her best solo effort ...

Staples, Mavis Time Waits for No One Paisley Park 25798-1 1989 VG VG $9.00
Interesting if not entirely successful collaboration with Prince.

Staples, Pops (RIP) Pops Staples A&M 718380-1 1987 VG+ VG+ $9.00
Ill advised effort to update the man and turn him into a happenin' funkmeister.

Starr, Edwin (RIP) Free To Be Me Granite GS-1005 1975 VG VG $25.00
Starr's post-Motown debut's quite good.

Starr, Edwin and Blinky (RIP) Just We Two Gordy GS945 1969 VG+ VG+ $20.00
They don't look particularly comfortable or happy on the cover and it transfers to the album's performances ...

Staton, Candi Stand By Your Man Fame ST-4202 1970 VG VG $35.00
Her sophomore release for Fame - the track listing includes five singles.

Stylistics, The Round 2 AVCO AV-11006 1972 VG VG $8.00
Classic soul - it just doesn't get much better than this.

Stylistics, The Thanks You Baby AVCO AV-69008 1975 VG VG $5.00
Not one of their finest moments, though you do get to hear Herb Murrell handle a lead vocal.

Stylistics, The Hurry Up This Way Again TSOP JZ-36470 1980 VG+ VG+ $10.00
Surprisingly nice debut for Philadelphia International.

Supremes, The Touch Motown MS-737 1971 VG+ VG+ $5.00
The third and least impressive collaboration with producer/arranger/writer Frank Wilson ...

Supremes, The The Supremes Motown M6-828S1 1975 VG+ VG+ $5.00
Mary Wilson's in charge for this late inning line up ...  couple of decent dance numbers and one throwback to prime Motown form - 'Give Out, But Don't Give In'.

Swamp Dogg Total Destruction To Your Mind Canyon LP-7706 1970 VG VG SOLD
His 1970 debut album is unlike anything else being released in the soul community at that time.

Swamp Dogg Rat On! Elektra EKS-74089 1971 VG VG $25.00
Ever eclectic offering (see detailed review).

Swamp Dogg Swamp Dogg's Greatest Hits? Stone Dogg 3002 1976 VG VG $30.00
No, not a true hits package, rather all new studio material.

Swamp Dogg Cuffed Collared and Tied Cream CR-9009 1972 VG VG $20.00
His third label and his third LP ...  see detailed review.

Swamp Dogg Finally Caught Up with Myself Musicor MUS-2504 1977 VG VG $25.00
Typical Dogg effort with more than its share of classic moves.

Swamp Dogg I'm Not Selling Out, I'm Buying In Takoma TAK 7099 1981 VG+ VG+ $25.00
His first album in 4 years proves a nifty comeback - worth the admission price for the duet with Esther Phillips on 'The Love We Got Ain't Worth Two Flies'.

Swamp Dogg I Called for a Rope and They threw Me a Rock SDGE SDE-4003 1989 NM NM $25.00
Just read the detailed review ...

Swiss Movement, The It's Time for the Swiss Movement RCA Victor APL1-0212 1973 VG VG $40.00
Wonderful set of Motown-ish old school soul.  That may have something to do with the fact two of The Temptations were involved in producing the material.  

Szabo, Gabor (RIP) Macho Salvation SAL 704 S1 1975 VG VG $20.00
Okay, it's jazz-rock from a guy born and raised in Hungary.  1.) I don't have a jazz-rock category.  2.) There are a bunch of funk players on the LP.  3.) It's pretty damn good.

Tams, The Time for the Tams ABC ABCD-596 1967 VG VG $9.00
Their third LP ...

Tate, Howard Howard Tate Atlantic SD-8303 1972 VG VG $85.00

Great and little known singer from Norfolk, Virginia.

Classic set of Motown soul that's largely unknown to folks ...

Terrell, Jean I Had To Fall In Love A&M SP-4676 1978 VG VG $20.00
How could this ex-Supreme solo effort have missed ???

Tex, Joe Hold On! It's Joe Tex Checker 2993 1965 VG VG $50.00
Nice compilation of his Checker singles.  See detailed review; mono pressing.

Tex, Joe Live and Lively Dial SD 8156 1968 VG+ VG+ $40.00
Yeah it was marketed as a live set, but sounds like a studio job with poor audience sounds added in post-production.

Tex, Joe Spills the Beans Dial DL-6004 1972 VG VG $15.00
Much better than the critics would have you believe and includes four Tex singles.

Thomas, Carla The Queen Alone Stax S-718 1969 VG VG $20.00
Probably her most consistent release.  (Name 'Kate' is printed on front cover; minor ring and edge wear; minor 3 inch split along top seam.)

Thomas, Carla Love Means ... Stax STS-2044 1970 VG+ VG+ $9.00
Nice, pop-oriented collection from the Queen of Stax.  (Includes the original lyric insert.)

Touch of Class I'm In Heaven Midland International BXL1-1821 1976 VG VG $20.00
This Philly-based quartet may not be the most original outfit you've ever heard, but they've got at least one lost classic on this LP.  Anyone know why this is so popular in Japan?

Toussaint, Allen Southern Nights Reprise MS-2186 1975 VG VG $20.00
Bet most of you didn't even know that Toussaint wrote the title track ...  Great album that's actually as trippy as it is soul-ish.

Turner, Ike and Tine The World of Ike and Tina Turner United Artists UALA064-G2 1973 VG VG SOLD
Surprisingly good double live LP.

Undisputed Truth Higher Than High Gordy G6-972S1 1975 VG VG $9.00
Goodbye old Undistributed Truth, hello new line up ...

Unifics, The Sittin' In At the Court of Love Kapp KS-3582 1967 VG VG $20.00
One of Washington, D.C.'s best soul groups - see detailed review.

Upp This Way Upp Epic PE 34177 1977 VG VG $15.00
Decent UK white-guy funk.

Van Dykes, The Tellin' It Like It Is Bell 6004 1966 VG VG $100.00
Excellent Fort Worth, Texas-based soul group with a real Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions fixation.  (Mono pressing).

Van Peebles, Melvin What the ... You Mean I Can't Sing Atlantic SD 7295 1973 VG VG $35.00
Pretty wild set by the famed movie director/actor.  See the detailed review.

various artists Ocean Drive Volume III Warner Brothers OP-2526 1981 VG VG $10.00
Double album compilation of beach music - see detailed review for track listing.

various artists The Living Word, Wattstax, Vol. 2 Stax STS-2-3018 1973 VG VG $20.00
Forgotten second set from the famous L.A. concert.

Vibrations, The Shout! Okeh OKM-12111 1965 VG VG $40.00
Yeah, it looks like a live set, but it isn't.  Instead it serves to pull together most of the group's Okeh-era 45s.  Most are surprisingly accomplished soul - the big exception being the lame MOR ballad (and hit) 'Misty'.

Weston, Kim For the First Time MGM SE 4277 1967 VG VG $15.00
Her first post-Motown release - a little too MOR for my tastes.

Wilson, Al Looking for the Dolphins Soul City SCS 92006 1969 VG VG $8.00
Wilson's debut LP - a little too MOR for my tastes, though some folks like 'The Snake'.

Winstons, The Color Him Father Metromedia MD 1010 1969 VG VG $75.00
Worth the admission price just for the title track.

Wonder,Stevie Songs In the Key Of Life Tamla T13-34062 1976 VG+ VG+ $20.00
Classic album and perhaps Wonder's creative zenith !  This one's in great shape and includes the multi-page insert and the bonus EP.  Hard to believe it came out nearly 30 years ago. 

Wright, Betty Travlin' In the Wright Circle Alston ALS-4410 1979 NM NM $8.00
Not her crowning artistic achievement, but has a couple of redeeming numbers (''),
