Charles BradleyStrictly Reserved For You/Let Love Stand A Chance ... 7-inch
Dunham/Daptone, 2013. New Copy ... $5.99
Pure wonderfulness from Charles Bradley – two killer cuts that really sum up his contemporary genius! "Strictly Reserved" has this slow funk groove that's nice and sinister – a stepping guitar riff that really sets up the groove right from the start – topped with these incredibly soulful vocals from Charles, and peppered with just the right dose of horns! "Let Love Stand A Chance" is a killer too – mellower, and a bit more deep soul – with a burning feel that almost blows away the best James Brown ballads of the King Records years! 7-inch, Vinyl record

JC Brooks & The Uptown SoundGet It Together/I Am Trying To Break Your Heart ... 7-inch
Rabbit Factory, 2010. Near Mint- ... $14.99
The funkiest track we've heard so far from JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound – one of the first to really get at that amazing groove they have in a live setting! "Get It Together" is razor-sharp in the groove department – lots of funky riffing guitar, hard-hitting bass, and badass horns – all a perfect setting for JC's raw soul vocals! "I Am Trying" is great too – a cut that starts out with a bit of a trippy start, then moves into some hard-stepping funk right away – a killer, kickass groove that's mighty nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lady Alma/RahelI Can't Help It/Hope – Presented by Marc de Clive-Lowe ... 7-inch
Alala, 2010. New Copy ... $2.99
Sweetly grooving sounds and lovely vocals from Lady Alma – who sang on 4Hero's "Hold It Down", with Sylk130 and Silhouette Brown – working wonderfully over the jazzy club sounds on "I Can't Help It"! The track starts with just soaring vocals before the percolating beats and jazzy keys kick in, with the Lady's vocals nicely out front in the mix. The flip is has a heavier beat and more excellent lead vocals, by Rahel – with the beats mirrored by piano in a really effective way. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Los Saicos (aka Saicos)Demolician – The Complete Recordings 1965 to 1966 (6 x 7 inch box set plus download) ... 7-inch
Munster (Spain), Mid 60s. Near Mint- 6 x 7" Box Set ... $43.99
An incredible batch of prime garage rock era nuggets from the Peruvian scene – fuzzy gems by the Saicos! The Saicos bring a sense of menace to these tunes – with a guitar tone touched with an eerie vibe, and lead vocals that are really piercing and gravelly in that instills this primordial edge that needs to be heard to be believed – but that balance it off with some moddish, British invasion grooves, too. The overall sound manages to blend both the heavy menace of cult acts like the Monks and the Seeds with the tunefulness of the Animals – and clear precursor the garage punk for decades to come! Titles include "Come On (Ven Aqui)", "Ana", "Demolicion", "Lonely Star (Estrella Solitaria)", "Cememterio", "Te Amo", "Fugitivo De Alcatraz", "Salvaje", "El Entierro De Los Gatos", "Besando A Otra" and "Intensamente". Comes with a great booklet and download card, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New RamrodsSoultrain (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Rampage, Early 70s. Very Good ... $7.99
Wicked heavy funk – one of those obscure numbers that's always stayed with us! The track's got a jaunty little groove – started off by a stepping, scratching guitar – then rolling into a heavy vamp with a lot of organ on the bottom! The tune kind of cooks and bubbles on its own – crashing into a loud loud groove that puts the needles in the red! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jackie RossMan Is Born (Doctor Slaps)/Need Your Love So Bad ... 7-inch
USA, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A wonderful rare cut from Chisoul singer Jackie Ross! "Man Is Born" is amazing – kind of a righteous message cut about a kid who started off bad from the start, set to incredible arrangements that are kind of in a Motown-baroque mode that work perfectly with the track's strange message. "Need Your Love" shows off Jackie's ballad side – and both cuts were written and arranged by producer Jimmy Van Leer! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Signs Of The TimeHurts So Bad/I Think Of You ... 7-inch
Pro 7/Numero, New Copy ... $5.99
A funky funky version of "Hurts So Bad" – one that still carries all the familiar lyric of the tune, but which begins with this totally great intro that sets up a mad groove peppered with hard piano lines and guitar! The mix of the harmony vocals and the sharp groove is mighty darn nice – especially when the production starts to make things sound trippy, too! "I Think Of You" has a trippy feel too – lots of echo on the group's vocals, and guitar tuned more like a sitar – complete with the twang! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ted TaylorFunky Situation/I'm Glad You're Home ... 7-inch
Ronn, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Damn! The guitar intro to this one is worth the price of the whole single! The cut starts out great – with this flangey riff that's sublime – then it rolls into sweetly bluesy vocals from Ted that are really great, and which make the track one of his best-ever! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Piero UmilianiI Soliti Ignoti EP ... 7-inch
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1958. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Very early work from this soundtrack genius – a rare Italian EP that features his classic "Blues For Gassman" – dedicated to Vittorio Gassman, who starred in the film – and featuring great interplay from the tune's two trombonists! Umiliani delivers some great offbeat piano – and part two of the tune features some very moody work on vibes. The EP also features the late night jazz number "Tema D'Amore", which has a slight Latin undercurrent – and the flowing full ensemble "Finale". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Freddie WatersGroovin On My Baby's Love/Kung Fu & You Too ... 7-inch
Stax, 1975. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful late single from Stax – pretty obscure too! "Groovin" is a warm bit of Memphis soul with an Al Green approach – tight rhythms at the bottom, strong use of electric keys, and warm and raspy vocals by Freddie serving up the tune's monster hook! "Kung Fu" starts with a "Chinese" guitar part, then kicks into more of an uptempo groove, but still retains traces of the style used on the first side. 7-inch, Vinyl record
