Cleveland EatonChitown Theme (part 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Black Jazz, 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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 Steve Dahl & Teenage RadiationDo You Think I'm Disco/Coho Lip Blues ... 7-inch
Ovation, 1979. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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 BlackbyrdsHappy Music/Love So Fine ... 7-inch
Fantasy, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great single by this legendary jazz funk group! "Happy Music" is a killer uptempo track – with these wild spacey guitars going back and forth on the intro in a way that still leaves us stunned. "Love So Fine" is great, too – and has a fantastic jazzy intro with a rumbling bass that's been sampled more than once! 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)... 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
