FatnicePeace Love Unity & Havin Fun (Lil' Dave Fun Size mix, Windy City mix)/My Favorite Things (Buscates Vibrate mix) ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness the Lil Dave mix is missing – and the flipside features Fatnice's own take on the concept of "Favorite Things" – served up with this true school vibe that should make him huge, if the world has any sense of justice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownThere Was A Time/I Can't Stand Myself (When You Touch Me) ... 7-inch
King, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
This is the kind of killer hard soul material that made James' late 60s years so incredible! "There Was a Time" is one of our favorite-ever tracks by him, and it's got a massive kind of soulful energy that's sometimes missing from other tracks at the time. "I Can't Stand Myself" is a winner, too, and features James wailing hard in a pure unbridled soulful moment! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Red label pressing.)

Gene ChandlerSimply Call It Love/Give Me A Chance ... 7-inch
Mercury, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A real killer from Gene Chandler – one of our favorite tracks by him ever! "Simply Call it Love" is completely sublime – soaring to the skies on wings of classic late 60s Chi-soul production – but also featuring this weird back/forth kind of rhythm that really gives the tune a bit of an edge. Gene's vocals are incredible too – playing the tune with just the right edge to make the weird approach work beautifully! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Mercury sleeve, with seam splitting.)

Nicola ConteFree Souls/Shades Of Joy ... 7-inch
Schema (Italy), 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
A couple sides of modern jazzy master Nicola Conte! "Free Souls" is a tight, soulful gem with vocals by Bridgette Amofah – kicking off with a drum intro that comes in like a raw soul tune, but settles in with some jazz horns and Bridgette's wonderful vocals. It's one of our favorite numbers by Nicola of the early teens. Great stuff! "Shades Of Joy" features Marvin Parks and Magnus Lindgren, and it's joyful indeed – a breezy, yet compelling jazzy gem with warm vocals by Parks and an impeccable sax solo by Lindgren. 7-inch, Vinyl record

DelfonicsSeventeen & In Love/I Told You So ... 7-inch
Philly Groove, 1973. Near Mint- ... $8.99
One of our favorite Delfonics tunes ever! "Seventeen" is amazing – not just for the wicked harmonies, the cascading Philly groove, and sublime production – but also for the darkness of the lyrics! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Freddie Hughes & The ChevellesI Just Found Out/I've Got My Own Mind ... 7-inch
Janus, 1972. Very Good- ... $19.99
Two excellent lost sides by Freddie Hughes! Freddie's one of our favorite soul singers from the 60s – and these two sides from 1972 rank among his best work. Both feature backing by The Chevelles, and they have a sound that rises above the usual southern soul style – into a heavenly realm that few singers ever reach. Really fantastic – and makes us wish there was an album of this material to find! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Myron & E with The Soul InvestigatorsPot Club (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2010. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A massive groove from Myron E – one of our favorite talents in the deep funk underground! "Pot Club" has a groove as dark as its title – kind of muddy at the bottom, which makes it a perfect match for the vocals – which have these slightly spacey quality, even though they're straightly soulful overall! There's plenty of punch at the bottom, much more so than you'd expect from such a pot-infused number – and production is by D, who we think is Didier – and if so, gives this cut some of his trademark messed-up funky touches! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gregory PorterOn My Way To Harlem (Jazz & Cole edit)/1960 What (Jazz & Cole edit) ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $7.99
One of our favorite tracks ever from the great Gregory Porter – and one of the best recent jazz vocal tunes in years – all served up in a sweetly compact 45 edit that still retains all the care and charm of the original! "1960 What" gets similar treatment too – all still awash in all the warm jazzy instrumentation of the first version – but with a sharper focus on the vocals and the hook! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Silvetti/Joe BataanSpring Rain/The Bottle ... 7-inch
Salsoul/Outta Sight (UK), 1975/1976. New Copy ... $7.99
What a tune – one of our favorite Salsoul tracks ever! "Spring Rain" is a magical blend of strings, beats, and this soaring piano – all coming together in a lush groove that never quits, peppered with some sweet female chorus vocals that never sound cheesy! The single's backed by Joe Bataan's great version of "The Bottle" – Gil Scott-Heron's classic jazzy track, done here as a salsa disco anthem! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby Taylor & The VancouversDoes Your Mama Know About Me/Fading Away ... 7-inch
Gordy, 1968. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Two fantastic numbers from one of our favorite 60s groups! "Does Your Mama Know" is about as great as you can get for 60s deep soul – with an anthemic hook that will send chills down your spine from the first minute you hear it! "Fading Away" is a great mellow number, too – with great vocals on the chorus! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New ExcitersBlowing Up My Mind/Turn Me On ... 7-inch
RCA/Outta Sight (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite songs ever from The Exciters – a massive tune that's got a lot more power and presence than their earlier hits – this monstrous groove that's definitely "Blowing Up" right from the start, with these searing vocals that really match the instrumental energy! "Turn Me On" is a bit mellower, but still grooving – and a great workout for the female lead, with an excellent deep quality to the vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Eddie FisherThird Cup/Two By Two ... 7-inch
Vanessa, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great single by this lost St. Louis guitar player! "The Third Cup" is a legendary classic in Chicago – and it's got this amazingly slow, amazingly dope groove that's always been a favorite with the jazz steppers. The flipside is great, too – and features Eddie going crazy in a much more uptempo funky way, playing hard over some tight loping arrangements. Paul Jackson's on bass, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Skip MahoneyJanice/Don't Stop Me Now ... 7-inch
Salsoul/Outta Sight (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite modern soul tracks ever – a surprising late entry from early 70s harmony soul maestro Skip Mahoney! "Janice" bubbles and burns with a heavy club groove – kicking it nicely with bass and strings as Skip's vocals come into the mix – soaring to the top with a really catchy vocal about the lady in the title, and dropping into a middle bit that features a nice percussion breakdown, a brief accapella by the group, and even a cool spoken passage! "Don't Stop Me Now" is a Gil Scott Heron tune – done in a surprisingly great disco style by Skip and the group! 7-inch, Vinyl record
