Looking for some recommendations. To give some idea of what I'm into, I don't really appreciate slap bass funk. Give me some Curtis Mayfield. I love his albums "Roots", "Sweet Exorcist", and of course, "Superfly". After a long time of searching for something other than a Greatest Hits Compilation of The Temptations, I finally this past week tracked down this:

Fantastic record.

Well, you can't go wrong with Otis Redding or Sly Stone. Cymande, Mandrill, and, of course, James Brown.

Al Green.

Any specific album in mind with those artists? I'd really like to hear more music circa 1970, give or take about 4 years.

My favorite Sly albums are Fresh and Small Talk. Very mellow with spare production values.

Anything by Otis is worth buying but Pain in My Heart is a good one for sure.

The self-titled Cymande album is really good and Fencewalk - The Mandrill Anthology is full of great stuff.

In my opinion, everything James Brown did from '68 to '75 is worth owning.

I may be stating the obvious but I'd say you need Marvin Gaye's 'What's Goin' On' and Stevie Wonders' 'Innervisions' 'Fullfillingness' First Finale' and 'Songs in the Key of Life.'

If you like Psychedelic Shack, you should also pick up Face to Face with the Truth by the Undisputed Truth and Involved by Edwin Starr, two more Norman Whitfield productions from around the same time.

Isaac Hayes.

See I would have thought that would be an obvious choice, but I've found that I only like half of his albums that I've heard. Some of it kicks ass, but the rest is filler.

Thanks for the tip! That's what I'm looking for! :)
