De-Lite, 1976. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Two mid 70s groovers from Kool & The Gang. "Love & Understanding" is kind of a slicker take on the "Funky Stuff" groove – still quite strong instrumentally, but with less of a bit than in earlier years. "Sunshine" has a bit of jazzy scatting in the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kool & The GangOpen Sesame (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
De-Lite, 1976. Near Mint- ... $2.99
For many, this was the moment when Kool and the Gang went disco – but to us, this still sounds pretty good! The cut's a bit more uptempo than usual, but the groove is still pretty nice – and there's some incredible wobbly bit in the middle that sounds like somebody's playing a saw! 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of the deepest tracks so far from Lady – a cut that has the duo stepping out in a mode that's almost vintage Memphis soul, but which has this nice contemporary crackle on the rhythms!

Great funky guitar kicks off this sweet gem from the Lady duo – riffing fast, then fuzzy and slow – all mixed with rolling conga lines that almost create a Curtom sort of energy to the tune, and helps the vocals really soar with a majesty that's even greater than their previous work! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Great early work from Laura Lee – recorded in Muscle Shoals before her later work with Hot Wax!

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Scarborough Fair/Canto Triste ... 7-inch
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $0.99
Great stuff by Sergio! "Scarborough Fair" is a remake of the Simon & Garfunkel tune – done by the ladies with an approach that's a bit sweeter than the original, but still nice and dark! "Canto Triste" is an Edu Lobo song – and always a treat! 7-inch, Vinyl record

RCA/Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $7.99
A killer cut by The Metros – one of Detroit soul's best secrets in the 60s! The track is amazing – dipping, turning, and soaring with this groove that even knocks out most Motown classics – and it's backed here by an equally great number, making for one hell of a 45! 7-inch, Vinyl record
