Jonny KBills To Pay/Afraid Of The Dark ... 7-inch
Fryer (UK), Early 70s. Near Mint- (reissue)... $7.99
We don't know Jonny K, but he sure sounds great on this funky 45 – a rare 70s session done for Henry Stone! "Bills To Pay" has a slinky stepping groove that's almost "Freddie's Dead" at times – but which has a bit more soul and feeling, thanks to Jonny's financially-strapped lyrics, and a sweet female chorus in the background! "Afraid Of The Dark" is equally hip and funky too – lots of wah wah guitar stepping along with the vocals, and some nice rising Miami horns in the back! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Little Johnny TaylorSomewhere Down The Line/What You Need Is A Ball ... 7-inch
Fryer (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A romping bluesy number from Little Johnny Taylor – recorded with this great vamping bassline that's already great enough, then Johnny's vocals come in and make things even greater – as does this sweet harmonica line in the background! "What You Need Is A Ball" is more of a stomper – still with the R&B vibe of Taylor's other material, but snapping with a soulful groove too! 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! "Medicine Man" has this vamping groove that's mighty great – mostly just a plucked electric bass alongside Washington's excellent vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Nathan BartellTop Goin' Down, Goin' Up/Jody & John ... 7-inch
Fryer (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first we've ever heard of Nathan Bartell – but we like what we hear! "Top Goin Down" is a crackling bit of funk that would make The Godfather proud – with skittish drums that work with the guitars in a great JBs-styled vamping mode – sweeping back and forth on the bottom of the track while horns blast over the top – and Nate belts out a superbad lyric! "Jody & John" is another great funky number – not as tight on the drums as the first cut, but still nice and hard and heavy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Lavern Baker/Lavern Baker & Jackie WilsonBumble Bee/Think Twice ... 7-inch
Fryer (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great 60s number from Lavern Baker – and a tune that's got all the deep deep vocals we love from her Atlantic Records work of the 50s, but a very different groove overall! "Bumble Bee" has this really unusual vocal refrain – some male singers who sing choppily alongside Baker's soaring lead – amidst a cool groove that has lots of vibes ringing out as well! "Think Twice" is presented here in a rare "rated X" version – one that has both Lavern Baker and Jackie Wilson singing lyrics about drugs and sex that we've never heard before! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Chocolate SnowInflation/Day In The Life ... 7-inch
Fryer (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Financial hardship never sounded so funky – as "Inflation" features this really wicked groove on the bottom, topped with a spoken bit about a guy roaming the city looking for work! The tune's a great example of the way political issues could come to the forefront in 70s funk – while still keeping things groovy from a musical perspective too! The groove's an extrapolation of the band's previous take on "A Day In The Life" – served up as an instrumental on the flipside with really wonderful Fender Rhodes in the lead, and excellent chromatic guitar in the middle. 7-inch, Vinyl record
