New Cleveland EatonChitown Theme (part 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Black Jazz, 1975. Near Mint- .... $19.99
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

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

New Lonnie SmithAfrodesia (original, disco version) ... 7-inch
Groove Merchant, 1975. Very Good- .... $7.99
Nice one! The album version of "Afrodesia" is a pretty straight jazz funk organ groove – but this 45's cool "disco version" adds some nice wah-wah guitar, tight blacksploitation-esque orchestral backing, and sexy vocals speaking the word "afrodesia" over and over again! 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 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
(Hand numbered limited edition of 333 copies.)

New 24 - Carat BlackGhetto – Misfortune's Wealth/24 Carat Black (Theme) ... 7-inch
BGP (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
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
