Soul, Funk & Rare Groove LPs

There are so many great soul and funk LPs from the late sixties, seventies and early eighties. We try to cover all types, from raw funk on small indie labels, two-step soul, big brassy female vocal funk grooves, sixties soul and deep male vocal soul right through to the big band funk and disco groups of the seventies. So if you are looking for an obscure undiscovered gem or a big club cut or just a great LP which is good from start to finish we can hook you up.
