Bo-Keys with Percy WigginsI Need More Than One Lifetime/The Good, The Bad, The Ugly ... 7-inch
Electraphonic, 2013. New Copy .... $5.99
Memphis soul legend Percy Wiggins sounds mighty great here working with the Bo-Keys – those wonderfully crackly vocals we loved on his vintage work on singles – set here to some tighter, funkier instrumentation overall! The group get their own time in the spotlight on the flipside – on a mighty groovy version of Ennio Morricone's western classic! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chocolate SnowInflation/Day In The Life ... 7-inch
Fryer (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy .... $9.99
Financial hardship never sounded so funky – as "Inflation" features this really wicked groove on the bottom, topped with a spoken bit about a guy roaming the city looking for work! The tune's a great example of the way political issues could come to the forefront in 70s funk – while still keeping things groovy from a musical perspective too! The groove's an extrapolation of the band's previous take on "A Day In The Life" – served up as an instrumental on the flipside with really wonderful Fender Rhodes in the lead, and excellent chromatic guitar in the middle. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Monk HigginsMacArthur Park/Vee Pea ... 7-inch
Dunhill, Late 60s. Very Good .... $4.99
While Monk's cover of MacArthur park is groovy, it's the b-side "Vee Pea" that we really love – a tasty soul instrumental that moves along in that great bouncy groove that Higgins was bringing to some of his arrangements for jazz players at the time! Great sax, and a nice full-on groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Earnest JacksonLove & Happiness/Hogwash ... 7-inch
Stone, 1973. Very Good+ .... $3.99
Two nice little sides of southern-sounding soul! "Love & Happiness" is a cover of the Al Green hit – not as sublime as Al's, but still pretty darn nice! "Hogwash" is a funky tune with some nice sax – not too hard, but still pretty groovy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jay VonsNight (Was Stealing From The Sun)/Days Undone ... 7-inch
La Ti Da, 2013. New Copy (pic cover).... $5.99
A really groovy little single – and one that's got the soaring sound of a lost blue-eyed soul track from the 60s! "Night" is upbeat, with a mighty nice hook – and some great Hammond that holds the whole thing together like some of the best of the early mod work by the Style Council – not their hits, but all the great tracks that were only b-sides of their British singles. "Days Undone" has a slightly later version of funk – maybe a bit more 70s, with some great snapping drums underneath the Hammond and vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Moon PeopleLand Of Love/Revolt ... 7-inch
Speed, Late 60s. Good .... $4.99
2 great instrumentals from this obscure Latin Soul combo! "Land Of Love" has a groove you can't even begin to imagine – all the instruments jumping up and down at once, like kids bouncing on a great big bed, while horn parts descend all over the place, laying out a weird off kilter groove! "Revolt" is a mellower tune – begins like a soul number, but then launches into a nice Latinized stepping groove, with an approach that kind of points the way towards funky early 70s LA! Louie Ramirez arranged, and Dave Baby Cortez played organ. Both sides are nice and groovy, with sort of a Latin soul vibe. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ennio MorriconeLe Casse/Rodeo (limited edition) ... 7-inch
Bell/Vadim (France), 1971. New Copy (pic cover).... $11.99
Ahh, we'd so love to see a bunch of killer Morricone numbers on funky 45s – but if that doesn't happen, we've got a really great one here!!! "Le Casse" is a moody bit of crime score funk, a killer beat under some harpsichord, strings and somewhat soaring atmospherics that pair so nicely with the rawer undercurrent. "Rodeo" has a more measured approach with a groovy payoff, and some sweet horns in the mix. Great stuff pulled from an early 70s film with Jean-Paul Belmondo & Omar Sharif! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Numbered limited edtion – in a great pic sleeve!)

Guy Morris & BandHot Pants Party/Cool It ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy .... $7.99
A heck of a great little party – even without the Hot Pants! Guy Morris grooves it here in a stone James Brown mode – socking with the bass on the beats, and really going for a heavy sound overall. The tune's incredibly catchy – somewhere between sock boogaloo soul and deeper funk – and Guy's warmer vocals over the top give the tune a unique feel of its own! "Cool It" follows in a similar heavy groove – lots of horns blasting out the theme while funky guitars riff and scratch underneath. Guy sits out the vocals on this one – letting the instruments take the tune to some really groovy places! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tyrone DavisTurn Back The Hands Of Time/I Keep Coming Back ... 7-inch
Dakar, Late 60s. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
A landmark of Chicago soul! "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" was a huuuuuuge crossover track for Tyrone – and it mixed his roosty vocal style with the soaring Chisoul arrangements of Tom Tom in a very groovy way! "I Keep Coming Back" is an excellent lost weeper, with a deep deep soul sound that's really great, augmented by some nice bubbling under organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record
