New Digs | Early October

Despite my focus on 7-inch singles as of late, I've still managed to dig up a few choice Lp's to round out my more recent hauls. Some long time wants and a couple unexpected treasures make for some pretty interesting acquisitions. Here's what's kept my new arrivals been interesting as of late. Dig it!


James Brown - Sho Is Funky Down Here (King, 1971)

Sly And The Family Stone - Life (Epic, 1968)

Funk Inc. - Chicken Lickin' (Prestige, 1972)

Curtis Mayfield - Curtis In Chicago (Curtom, 1973)

Pretty Purdie - Soul Drums (Date, 1968)

Buster Williams - Pinnacle (Muse, 1975)

Roy Ayers - Coffy (Polydor, 1973)

Chicago Gangsters - Gangster Love (Gold Plate, 1976)

Marvin Gaye - That Stubborn Kinda Fellow (Tamla, 1962)

New Digs | Late July 2017

Given that I've slightly shifted my focus to 45's over the past few months, I've naturally somewhat curbed my intake of LP's. But that doesn't mean I've moved on from larger discs, just been more critical with what actually gets brought into my home. See below for some of the used long players I've incorporated into the mix.

Jake Holmes - The Above Ground Sound (Tower, 1967)

Found Jake Holmes' first and second albums on the cheap in one of my local spots. I was just about to walk out empty handed when I spotted these gems front and center glaring back at me from the oft-skipped and unfruitful Folk section. I was stunned and flabbergasted as both records are in pristine shape and have been on my watchlist for a few years. Nice scores!


Dorothy Norwood - He's A Friend (Jewel, 1978)

Nice late 70's gospel album featuring the killer disco-fied title cut. 


White Duck - The White Duck (Uni, 1971)

This was priced a little rich in one of the local spots, but figured I'd finally give the album a shot after passing on it for years. Like a lot of rock records from the time, some of the songs are clunkers - but there are enough bright spots to blance it all out and still warrant a purchase.


Jake Holmes - A Letter To Katherine December (Tower, 1968)

See above :)


Jean Knight - Mr. Big Stuff (Stax, 1971)

Somehow this classic Stax album has eluded me in my quest. Everyone is familiar with the title cut, and rightfully so, it's stood up to the test of time.


Kindred - S/T (Warner Bros, 1971)


Bill Moss & The Celestials - Mother Of My Children (Jewel, 1976)


Beacon Street Union - The Clown Died In Marvin Gardens (MGM, 1968)


Jimmy Hughes - Something Special (Stax, 1969)

I finally dug up one of the Volt Lp's missing from my grip. Sure is nice to have a clean copy!



Strivin' & 45'n | The A's & B's of Funk, Soul, & R&B | July 21st @ Japp's

Join us this Friday at Japp's Since 1879 for the second edition of Strivin’ & 45'n, an all 7" vinyl affair.
