Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassCasino Royale/Wall Street Rag ... 7-inch
A&M, Mid 60s. Very Good- (pic cover)... $2.99
One of the greatest from Herb – a sweetly groovy number written by Burt Bacharach with a playful romping rhythm, and this great compressed melody that's perfect for Herb's sweet little horn! The track's backed by the more obscure "Wall Street Rag" – a 20s-ish number that Herb manages to pull off well enough! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Sleeve has some pen & marker.)

New Brother to BrotherIn The Bottle/The Affair ... 7-inch
Turbo, 1974. Very Good ... $7.99
Great groovy stuff – Brother to Brother's fabulous cover of the Gil Scott-Heron track "The Bottle" – done here with a cool flanged vocal chorus on the lyrics, and a tight jazzy groove that reproduces the feel of the original, but adds some soulful female vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have a small name in marker.)

Arelean BrownI Am A Streaker/Why I Love You ... 7-inch
Dud Sound, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Ahh . . . For the days of the streaking single! Arelean was an obscure blues singer from Chicago's west side – but she's forever famous among funk fans for this groovy little number. The cut's got a slow bluesy feel – but Arlean keeps it going with some great lines about what a good streaker she is! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Blue label pressing.)

Alvin Cash & The CrawlersUnwind The Twine/The Penguin (Tuxedo Bird) ... 7-inch
Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Alvin Cash revisits his famous "twine" sound here – in a great little track that's hard, raw, and done with lots of echo – just like Alvin's big hit, but with a groovy rolling vibe! Lots of choppy guitar, rolling sax, and shouted choruses by Alvin! "The Penguin" is a stomping dancefloor number – crashing, rolling, and with this mad vocal part that has the band shouting "Penguin!" in a really weird way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Carl Henry Hall/Jimmy RandolphSummertime (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
Two versions of the classic "Summertime" – both pretty darn groovy! Carl Henry Hall takes the tune with this sweet vamping vibe – almost funky overall, with a modal element that's great – and topped by his own searing, searching vocals! The pace is slower on Jimmy Randolph's version, but equally vamping – although in a way that's more jazzy than soul! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Duffy JacksonI Feel Good/Tamahawk ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Rare jazz funk from drummery Duffy Jackson! "I Feel Good" is a big band take on the JB classic – credited to The Duffy Jackson Orchestra – but the combo wisely keeps it a bit loose and genuinely funky. Nice gritty vocals by Johnny Apollo. "Tamahawk" is another funk jazz scorcher – this one really nice and loose – with room for Apollo to improvise a bit on the vocals and for the band to really get into it. Really groovy stuff – you gotta love it when a band billed as an orchestra loosens up their collars and get good and funky! 7-inch, Vinyl record

JadeSiesta Is Over/Viva Tirado ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
Rare late 70s Latin soul from Jade! "The Siesta Is Over" is a killer mix of styles – anchored strongly by funk, thanks of the limber bass line, JBs-inspired horns, raw drums and organ – but it's got a sunny vibe, too, thanks the groovy male and female harmony vocals. The flip is a nice cover of "Viva Tirado" – which is probably best known for El Chicano's version – and Jade does it justice, again with the groovy organ, and solid vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jay VonsNight (Was Stealing From The Sun)/Days Undone ... 7-inch
La Ti Da, 2013. New Copy (pic cover)... $0.99
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

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

Paz AntiguanaTropical Soul/First Round ... 7-inch
Holy Cane Spirit (France), 2013. New Copy (pic cover)... $7.99
A groovy take on Latin Soul from this ultra-chic French combo! "Tropical Soul" bubbles along with soulful trombone in the lead, and this cool piano line dancing over percussion – while two female singers work together to create a very sunny vibe on the lyrics! "First Round" is jazzier, with great sounds from the twin trombones – and a piano part that really takes off once things get going! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited/numbered edition of 100 copies!)

Redd Holt UnlimitedGimme Some Mo/Nothing From Nothing ... 7-inch
Paula, 1975. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Another nice funky groover from Redd Holt! Holt's drums ring out nice and loud on both tracks - the groovy sing-song funk number "Gimme Some Mo", and the flipside, which is a great instrumental cover of the big hit! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tico & The TriumphsHere Come The Garbage Man/The Biggest Lie I Ever Told ... 7-inch
Norton, 1962. New Copy (pic cover)... $5.99
A pair of raw, though well-crafted rockers from the early 60s by Tico & The Triumphs – "Tico" actually a very young Paul Simon! "Here Comes The Garbage Man" is kind of a garage rock stab at Phil Spector-style tunecraft – and the flip "The Biggest Lie I Ever Told" is equally groovy. 7-inch, Vinyl record
