    Fantastic harmony soul LP with great Chicago soul production by Gene Chandler, and singing from Mel & Tim that will blow your mind! The tracks are a fantastic example of the sort of psychedelic soul sound that was coming out of Chicago at the time -- with tight catchy hooks in the songs, soaring soulful harmonies, and excellent instrumentation that has some good fuzzy bits and nice hard drums.

    We have posted the first Malo album here.

    Here is the next 3 albums of a group which mix Latin Rock, Funk and Soul.

    In 1970 the Malibus changed their name to Malo and things started happening with a guitarist was brought in by the name of Jorge Santana, the brother of the already famous Carlos Santana. At times numbering as many as ten or more musicians, Malo's powerful sound was different to that of Santan
    a in that the line-up included a serious horn section, which included, at various times, leading trumpet player Luis Gasca, as well as percussionists Coke Escovedo, Francisco Aguabella, Victor Pantoja and Richard Bean (of Sapo fame).They were signed to Warner Brothers Records and recorded their first album, which

    I finally obtain this vinyl after a long time searching.
    This is the debut LP for Sussex records in 1972. Very rare even to find it on mp3. Not to be confused with 1975 RCA album with only her name too.
    Even All Music is wrong having 1975 songs in this album’s song list.

    One of the most amazing singer/songwriters of the 1970s. Sometimes funky, sometimes sensitive. Zulema's distinct style of soul is always dramatic, passionate and unapologetically in-your-face. This lady doesn't play around! Like her lyrics, her voice is powerful, holding nothing back. At times, her full-blown delivery is similar to the style of Chaka Khan, yet Zulema's fire is distinctly her own.

    Frequently compared to Aretha Franklin, singer Margie Joseph earned neither the fame nor the critical success lavished upon the Queen of Soul, but a series of excellent records for Atlantic during the 1970s nevertheless won her a spot in the pantheon of soul cult favorites.

    A great second generation southern soul singer who really helped the label find a new sound in the 70s! Margie got her start on Stax, but she sounds even better here -- a bit more mature, slightly more urban.


    Producer Freddy Briggs took the helm for Joseph's , "Your Sweet Loving"; released in the summer of 1970, the single proved a mi ... Read more »

    The Isley Brothers at the top of their game. Classic tracks suchas Who's That Lady and Summer Breeze blend effortlessly with moody heartfelt numbers like Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight and The Highways of My Life.

    Listen again and again. It's great!!

    1 That Lady, Pts. 1 & 2 (5:34)
    2 Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight (4:02)

    One of the best albums ever recorded in any kind of music
    Ranked #99 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time"

    Great dark soul album with layered drums, electric piano and forbodding bass sounds. The vocals, mostly by Sly, are full of despair and emotion, as are much of the lyrics. "Family Affair" is a major classic with some really druggy vocals from Sly. "Africa Talks to You" i ... Read more »

    V.A. - What It Is! Funky Soul and Rare Grooves (1967-1977)

    Ninety-one tracks deep and five hours long.
    This may be the desert island comp for funk and soul fans. From the New Orleans ' R&B of Allen Trousie Toussaint," to the funk universalism of Earth, Wind and Fire, this comp touches nearly all the bases.

    There are seminal jams such as Bay Key's "Soul Finger," but much of this focuses on rare gems from many of soul's biggest names. Perhaps the disk's greatest virtue, though, is the attention paid to lesser known acts, which makes this collection as much a beginning as it is an end.

    An absolute masterpiece and a peak in 70's soul-music. "For The love Of Money" is a definite track of the period and a good example of how ambitious the architects behind the so-called Philly Sound actually were. The title track is a hair-rasising account of the ships that brought over the slaves from West Africa and it is definitely another carer high.

    One of the most important albums of its era.

    That's an undeniable ... Read more »

    A killer album of 70s New Orleans funk!


    A New Orleans funk and soul ensemble who enjoyed moderate success in the mid-'70s, Chocolate Milk recorded for RCA from 1975 to 1983. Chocolate Milk was lucky enough to have worked with Allen Toussaint who produced their albums for Sansu Enterprises.

    Their best songs were up-tempo and/or light dance/novelty numbers such as "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" in 1975, "Girl Callin" in 1978, and "Blue Jeans" in 1981. All were Top 20 R&B hits.

    A very rare Soul Disco Funk album. I always enjoy listen to it,
    very difficult to find it. Never released on CD.
    A must have.

    Great stuff from this super, but frequently forgotten, modern soul funk disco group. The record's a nice mix of mellow tracks with more up tempo ones and in its best moments, the production by Jerry Peters hits a nice spacey edge. Includes the singles "Wake Up & Be Somebody" and "Loving You Is Really My Game"
