Tramp (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
Marie Adams takes the lead on this great funky classic – but the tune also begins with a great male voice pleading with the singer, which seems to give her badass lyrics even more of a punch!

King, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Both tracks are very nice, and the single is an excellent example of James at his strongest in the 60's. "If I Ruled The World" is a beautiful ballad soul cut, infused with the kind of subtle politics that James used before hitting his more radical days. "I Got The Feelin" has ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownPapa Don't Take No Mess (pts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1975. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of James Brown's all-time greats from the early 70s – an extended funky romp that's as great as anything on The Payback or Doing It To Death – and played in a similar stretched-out jamming style! The cut's long, lean, and very mean – with a vamping funky groove that's outta ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownPublic Enemy #1 (part 1)/I Got A Bag Of My Own ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1972. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. "I Got A Bag Of My Own" is pretty nice too – a fast funky cut ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

James BrownStar Generation/Women Are Something Else ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1979. Near Mint- ... $0.99
"Star Generation" is a bit too fast for our tastes – especially when it comes to James – but "Women" is a nice slow smooth number, with a bit of a Johnny Guitar Watson-sounding guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Polydor sleeve. Label has a sticker.)

James BrownThere Was A Time/I Can't Stand Myself (When You Touch Me) ... 7-inch
King, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
This is the kind of killer hard soul material that made James' late 60s years so incredible! "There Was a Time" is one of our favorite-ever tracks by him, and it's got a massive kind of soulful energy that's sometimes missing from other tracks at the time. "I Can't Stand ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lucky BrownDon't Go Away/The Fresh One ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2008. New Copy ... $7.99
Gritty modern funk with an impeccably dusty vibe – the first thing we've heard from Lucky Brown –and hopefully not the last! "Don't Go Away" is a tight, heavy number the wholly belongs to the killer early 70s school of funk – a modern jam that exudes all the dust and ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lucky BrownPotato Cakes (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2008. New Copy ... $6.99
Very spacey funk from Lucky Brown – a mixture of slow-stepping bass, muddy drums, and some very cool keyboard bits – all sewn together with a surprisingly deep horn part on the top! There's a nicely percolating feel to the rhythms, but they sit back nicely in the mix and let the other ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Juke Box Jam (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
Not Roy Brown's famous hit, but a similarly-titled track that has a mighty great groove – one that vamps along with a King Records R&B style – and which has Roy's vocals hitting this unusual stretching style – grounded nicely by some backup vocals! "Everything's ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

The Brown Bombers come on here with plenty of firepower – soaring with the groove on "Wait For Me" – which has an upbeat Northern soul groove and some great harmonies to match! "Just Fun" follows in a similar spirit – an instrumental groove that echoes the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
