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

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

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

Skip MahoneyJanice/Don't Stop Me Now ... 7-inch
Salsoul/Outta Sight (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $7.99
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

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

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

New Ruby AndrewsYou Ole Boo Boo You/Gotta Break Away ... 7-inch
Zodiac, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from Ruby Andrews – one of our favorite singles by her! "Boo Boo" is a slow, hard, snapping monster – begins with a tight funky intro, then rolls into Ruby doing some totally hard hard hard soul vocals! "Gotta Break Away" is sweeter, but a great little tune too – with weird rhythms, and a bubbling approach to the groove that's really really nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record
