Not essential but the best sounding Soul and/or Funk you've heard since you starting getting up with records.

These are the ones I've heard that don't turn up much (and fetch Reynaldo-like prices) that I think are among the greats.

East of Underground
Magnum -- Fully Loaded
Turner Bros. -- Act 1
Bobby Boyd Congress
Quinn Harris & Masterminds -- All In The Soul

I know I'm missing a lot here so please add on..

    Rabbits and Carrots is psych/funk from Mexico (at least one LP and one EP I believe). Two Sisters is actually not a funk album per se, but it has enough funk on it to make it highly desirable, at least 'round these parts. I've already said too much.

    Strictly a one tracker, but MAN! What a BLAZING Track! Completely insane.

    Reynaldo???

    I know someone who has a copy, but I don't think he's selling. Someone offered him something like 300-400 bucks and he said no. Crazy! I also need this in my life. It sounds bananas on the sound system.

  • JAMES MASON "RHYTHM OF LIFE" is at the top of my list. Beats a lot of stuff.

    Amazing music and a real solid album.

    Here's a funny story. Eramus Hall appeared in a lot of Prince and Thelma Houston LPs not too long a go. Not really knowing it was a big ticket item, I through $17 at the lot for kicks and barely lost. I then later found out Bestsoundrecords got $400 for it!!???

    Fast fwd a few months, the same lot pops up on eBay. It gets the dead beat bidder relistand I win at $4.99



    It's floating around on souleek.. Great modern record, indeed.

    Does this really go for that much? is this really that hot? 1979 Mike Theodore production right?

    I got a 12" from dude and I didn't think is was particularly mindblowing.

    I mean I know its a raer LP but is it really $400 raer?

    I've seen it go for 200 a few times. I love the album. I think some would hate on it tho.

    Don't forget his output on Hi. Just as good as these... Not as raer though I guess. I'm getting this thread confused with the other one.
