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.)

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 Great ReviversDrunken Master/Bottoms Up ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
Nothing drunken here – as the drums are tight, sober, and right on the money – snapping underneath a fast-vamping guitar line before a heavy Hammond comes into the mix and cooks things up with a very groovy solo! "Bottoms Up" has a heavy break at the beginning – really old school in sound and style – then a leap into a boldly dipping bassline that runs up and down the scale while guitars pluck away a twangy tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

LutherFunky Music Is A Part Of Me/The 2nd Time Around ... 7-inch
Cotillion, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
"Funky Music" is a great early tune from Luther Vandross – a soaring clubby number based on the same changes as "Fascination", which he wrote with David Bowie – but done here in a style that's a lot more soulful, and very very groovy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Moon PeopleLand Of Love/Revolt ... 7-inch
Speed, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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
(Label has some pen.)

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!)

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
