Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassCasino Royale/Wall Street Rag ... 7-inch
A&M, Mid 60s. Very Good- (pic cover)... $1.99
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.)

Arelean BrownI Am A Streaker/Why I Love You ... 7-inch
Dud Sound, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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

Alvin Cash & The CrawlersUnwind The Twine/The Penguin (Tuxedo Bird) ... 7-inch
Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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

George Duning/Gianfranco ReverberiZodiac Blues/Orgiastic Ritual ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 50s/Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
A cool and unlikely pairing of 2 groovy tracks from 2 different movies that portray black magic in very different ways! First up is George Duning and the Brothers Candoli, with "Zodiac Blues" from Bell Book & Candle – the late 50s Kim Novak/James Stewart classic – in which enchantress Kim puts her seductive charms on Jimmy! The song has a fun little nightclub jazzy vibe, kicking off with a cat's meow to set the tone. The flipside is "Orgiastic Ritual" by Gianfranco Reverberi, an eerily percussive tune from the 70s erotic horror film The Reincarnation Of Isabel –- which uses some sultry moaning to good effect! 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

Ennio MorriconeLe Casse/Rodeo (limited edition) ... 7-inch
Bell/Vadim (France), 1971. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
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!)

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!)

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

Cal TjaderCuchy Frito Man/Soul Burst ... 7-inch
Verve, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
This is Cal the way we like him – all Latiny and jazzy, with touches of 60s groovy in the mix to keep things fresh, slight electric instrumentation on bass, giving both cuts more of a romp, and great vibes from Cal, plus a bit of soulful flute! 7-inch, Vinyl record
