New ValdonsJust How Much Can One Man Stand (original, demo) ... 7-inch
Secret Stash, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
A contemporary gem from 60s & 70s Twin Cities veterans The Valdons – sounding like their prime, vintage selves on a contemporary ecording of "Just How Much Can One Man Stand" – which you can hear for yourself, as an early 70s demo of the same great song appears on the flip! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

New ValdonsWhatcha Gonna Do/Stop, Wait A Minute Girl ... 7-inch
Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
"Whatcha Gonna Do" is a real killer – a harmony soul stepper, but one with this super-hard punch on the downbeat – so that the whole thing hits with the fierceness of a funk track, even though it's got a sublime mellow feel throughout! The harmonies are really great, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jacqui VerdellHe's Mine/We're Gonna Have A Good Time ... 7-inch
Respect, 1973. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Obscure little number from Stax – with kind of a stock heavy soul sound served up in the wake of the Staple Singers. "He's Mine" is a bit too sleepy and seems to go nowhere – but "We're Gonna Have A Good Time" rolls along like one of the Staples' hits, and has a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ronnie WalkerNothing's Gonna Change/Now There is You ... 7-inch
Impact/Philly Archives, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $2.99
A wonderful groove from Philly soul legend Ronnie Walker – a singer who never hit as big as some of his contemporaries, but who has a voice that ranks here with the best! There's a fragile crackle to Walker's vocals on "Nothing's Gonna Change You" – a quality that makes the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Anita WardRing My Bell/If I Could Feel That Old Feeling Again ... 7-inch
Juana, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
What can we say? "Ring My Bell" was one of the biggest crossover disco tracks of the late 70s – with a cool electronic groove on the beat, and lyrics and production by Frederick Knight, making the southern soul singer one of the more unlikely disco forces of the time. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Baby WashingtonMove On/Medicine Man ... 7-inch
Fryer (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A really romping groover from Baby Washington – fast piano triplets alongside tight horns that burst along with the rhythms – leaving Baby to move move on with a great lyric in the lead!

New Barry White & The Atlantics/Sammy LeeTracy/It Hurts Me ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1963/1966. New Copy ... $7.99
An early 60s groover from Barry White – done when he was a fresh studio talent on the LA scene – but clearly one for a great ear for soul! The tune's got a raw, raspy vibe you wouldn't expect – a tight vamping groove, and some tremendous vocals rolling out over the front! "I ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
A soaring Detroit number from Nancy Wilcox – from the bassline that steps out the groove at the start, to the snapping tambourine in the rhythm, to Nacy's hard-biting approach to the lyrics of the tune! The great Lorraine Chandler takes things at a slightly easier pace on the flipside – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
Plenty of funky flute on Skin Williams' excellent "Skin's Funk" – a tune that romps along mightily with some tremendous heavy drums – and which has the flute almost blowing its stack with a really hard-edged solo!

Genius, pure genius – Trevor Horn's transformation of the overcluttered Yes groove down into a lean, mean bit of bass and funk for the 80s! The whole thing snaps, crackles, and vamps along magnificently – a blueprint for Art Of Noise, and countless other groups to come! 7-inch, Vinyl record
