Cleveland EatonChitown Theme (part 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Black Jazz, 1975. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A funky classic from the Black Jazz catalog – and one of the few singles issued under the name of Cleveland Eaton! The track's got a very nice Shaft-like groove – lots of wah wah guitar, rising horns, and some female vocals singing "Chitown Theme" in the back. Nice one, and much funkier than other stuff on Black Jazz! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Steve Dahl & Teenage RadiationDo You Think I'm Disco/Coho Lip Blues ... 7-inch
Ovation, 1979. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $2.99
After the Ovation label shut down Black Jazz, this was the kind of stuff they resorted to putting out. Chicago DJ Steve Dahl (the man behind the "Disco Demolition" in the late 70's) hit big on the charts in 1979 with this parody of Rod Stewart's "Do You Think I'm Sexy". 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Marc 4Blues Work/Suoni Moderni ... 7-inch
Black Cat (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
"Blues Work" here is hardly the sound of American blues – and instead, is more in the mode of tight funky jazz – but with this cool sharp piano riffing over the top, very much in the best Duke Of Burlington style! "Suoni Moderni" is another great one from this cool instrumental combo – very bassy at the beginning, with a drum break nestled in at the bottom – which gets louder and sharper as the tune rolls on, with some great space for Hammond and Fender Rhodes lines too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Paul JohnsonBetter Than This (Soul Talk mix, Dego & Kaidi's 2000 Black mix) ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
A sweet soulful stepper from Paul Johnson – a cut that feels like it was lifted right from lost 70s tapes from the LA scene – right down to its jazzy, Steely Dan-styled hook! The soul talk mix is great, but we especially love what Dego and Kaidi do to the tune – crackling the whole thing up with an even hipper 4 Hero sort of vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

24 - Carat BlackGhetto – Misfortune's Wealth/24 Carat Black (Theme) ... 7-inch
BGP (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
2 of the funkiest tracks ever from this legendary group! "Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth" is the title track to the group's album of the same name – and it's got a slow, sinister bass/keys riff that you'll recognize instantly from a million samples! The original tune still sounds better than any of the copies – and it somehow comes off better on 45 than on the full LP! The flipside features the longer, more open-ended jazzy groover "24 Carat Black Theme" – another killer funky number, with a wonderfully spacey groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New George Duning/Gianfranco ReverberiZodiac Blues/Orgiastic Ritual ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 50s/Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool and unlikely pairing of 2 groovy tracks from 2 different movies that portray black magic in very different ways! First up is George Duning and the Brothers Candoli, with "Zodiac Blues" from Bell Book & Candle – the late 50s Kim Novak/James Stewart classic – in which enchantress Kim puts her seductive charms on Jimmy! The song has a fun little nightclub jazzy vibe, kicking off with a cat's meow to set the tone. The flipside is "Orgiastic Ritual" by Gianfranco Reverberi, an eerily percussive tune from the 70s erotic horror film The Reincarnation Of Isabel –- which uses some sultry moaning to good effect! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New BlackbyrdsRock Creek Park/Thankful Bout Yourself ... 7-inch
Fantasy, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ahhh . . . Here's one we never tire of! "Rock Creek Park" is one of the greatest funky soul tracks of all time – with a snapping bassline at the beginning, and a totally smooth catchy hook ("doing it in the park") that you'll be humming for years! "Thankful" is great, too – with a complicated jazz funk groove, riffing sax, and these righteous lyrics that sound like they're lifted off a Ramp record! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a sticker.)

New Marc 4Sweet Beat/Ray Ban ... 7-inch
Black Cat (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A definite sweet beat from this hip sound library combo – one that features romping drums and bass, topped by a very cool funky flute line that gives the tune a great jazzy vibe! "Ray Ban" is very nice too – a faster romp, but with a similar tight bass/drum groove – this time peppered with smoking Hammond licks that bubble at the beginning, then really take off in the solo! 7-inch, Vinyl record
