Train UpWhat Is Wrong With Grooving/In The Name Of Love ... 7-inch
Deja Vu (Italy), 2008. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A killer remake of "What Is Wrong With Groovin" – a cut sung by Letta Mbulu at the end of the 60s, redone here with a groove that's just as great as the original! Backings are warmly jazzy, with a sweet dipping sense of funk in the rhythms – and the female lead vocals have a soulful depth that really makes the tune sparkle! Alan Farrington steps out on the flipside – doing a great job with Kenny Rankin's "In The Name Of Love" – but hitting the tune with a raspy brilliance we like even more than Rankin! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New D TrainYou're The One For Me (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Prelude, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent 80s groove classic! James D-Train Williams sings it nice and deep on this catchy club cut – but the real groove is put over by Hubert Eaves, who does some excellent work on keyboards! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New O'JaysLove Train/Time To Get Down ... 7-inch
Philadelphia International, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"Love Train" is a perfect blend of righteous message and Philly club – the kind of track that both the group and Gamble & Huff were born to create! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Golden Oldies pressing. Labels have some pen and a sticker spot.)

New BlendersNothin But A Party (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2004. New Copy ... $8.99
Nothin But A Party – but what a party it is! The track's a non-stop groover that rolls like a train out of control – drums chasing bass chasing horns all over the place – as the track fast-riffs out a groove that's amazingly tight for the speed at which it's taken! The group slows down a bit for the second part – letting the drums break nice and heavy, as Coffey-esque guitar wah wah's its way over the groove very nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Valentine BrothersLet Me Be Close To You/Just Another Love Song ... 7-inch
Bridge, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Early work from The Valentine Brothers – back in their indie days, before exploding to bigger fame at A&M. "Let Me Be Close" is a smooth early 80s stepper – with keyboards slowing bumping the cut along, like a D-Train number from the same time. "Just Another Love Song" is a mellow ballad – not nearly as nice. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a sticker.)

RamrodsSoultrain (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Rampage, Early 70s. Very Good ... $7.99
Wicked heavy funk – one of those obscure numbers that's always stayed with us! The track's got a jaunty little groove – started off by a stepping, scratching guitar – then rolling into a heavy vamp with a lot of organ on the bottom! The tune kind of cooks and bubbles on its own – crashing into a loud loud groove that puts the needles in the red! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Minnie RipertonLover & Friend/Return To Forever ... 7-inch
Capitol, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
Always-great work from Minnie! "Lover & Friend" begins with a spare piano note, stops, moves again, then the whole band swings into the mix in a nice jazzy feel – Minnie stepping up to the plate with a warm vocal and a nice bounce to her sound. "Return To Forever" is quite spare – bubbling up out of nowhere, mostly just Minnie's vocals, with a restrained backing that really has an edge! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Capitol sleeve. Label has a sticker.)
