Kept (Canada), 2014. New Copy
The group's name has more of an 80s soul sort of sound, but the style here is classic funk all the way through – with tight drums, riffing guitar, and really hard-burning vocals from Lady C – who hits sort of a Marva Whitney vibe on the vocal version of "Killin Me"! The ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy
A sweet groover from Khemistry – and maybe one of the group's best tracks ever! "Can You Feel The Love" has a solid step and a warm groove right from the start – sweet rhythms that move at a nice post-disco sort of vibe – more tight 80s club, and mixed with a haunting ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Expansion (UK), 1970/1977. New Copy
Ronnie Dyson knocks it out nicely on "I Want To Be Where You Are" – a warm Chuck Jackson/Marvin Yancy number that really shows off Dyson's best modern soul modes – an ability to really soar with the groove with a real richness of vocals! The flip's Ronnie's big early hit ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

RCA/Outta Sight (UK), 1982. New Copy
Sublime 80s mellow from Michael Wycoff – a great track lifted from his classic Love Conquers All album, and a tune that never gets old! The track glides in beautifully on some sweet keyboards that have a lot of 70s warmth – and Wycoff's voice, while smooth, also crackles with an honest ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Buddah/Soul Brother (UK), 1972/1974. New Copy
Righteous Barbara Mason – two great cuts! "World In Crisis" is a political number, but one that's got this warm stepping groove – almost Leroy Hutson, with some of the greatest arrangements that Barbara ever got! "Give Me Your Love" is a badass Curtis Mayfield tune ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Light In The Attic, Mid 70s/2012. New Copy
A wild remake of the Betty Davis classic – and a tune that may well be one of Iggy Pop's funkiest recordings ever! The guitars are way more up in the mix than on Betty's original – lots of fuzz from the Zig Zags, cut through by Iggy's dark vocals – all in a fuzzy wave of sound ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Liberator/Summer
Cache Cache (UK), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)
That's an Atari-inspired logo on the single – and the record's got just the right sort of sound to match – a very cool video game theme on "Liberator" – complete with computerized vocals – backed with more of an electro dance number on "Summer" – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Art Yard (UK), 1973. New Copy
Previously unreleased material from the legendary Salah Ragab – two tracks of exotic, jazzy grooves! "Tribute To Sun Ra" is a cut that Ra would have loved – a jaunty little groover that has some angular horns on the top – very "Eastern" in feel, over a romping ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Daptone, 2005. New Copy
Bang! This one starts like a mofo – hard drums rattling in a monster break, and really setting the scene for Charles stark and soulful lyrics. The tune rattles along with some super-tight guitar – riffing away next to the bass in a double-time groove that's immediately gripping – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Excello, 1973. Very Good+

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funk Night, 2014. New Copy
A cool trippy groove builds nicely at the start of "Return Of Green Snake" – organ and bass snaking over some slinky drums – while guitar rings out a bit to encourage this great keyboard solo in the middle! "Spy Potion" continues the eerie, psych-ish feel – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Psychedelphonic, 2014. New Copy
One of the fiercest, fuzziest tracks we've heard from these guys – tight drums, some raw guitar up front, and an overall mod groove that makes the girls' vocals sound a bit more edgey than usual! Tambourine drives the rhythms throughout – and the flipside features a mono mix of "Dr ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bacao Suave/Round & Round
Truth & Soul, 2014. New Copy
Sweet steel band sounds from Bacao Rhythm & Steel – a contemporary combo, but one who recall the best 70s years of the steel funk scene! "Bacao Suave" begins with a heavy bassline leading the drums – then rolls into a sweet steel passage that's as groovy as it is melodic ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funk Night, 2014. New Copy
A mighty Hammond instrumental from the Mighty 388's – a tune that burns and soars right from the start, and has these massive drums that break hard all the way through – and really keep the energy going! "Man Up" is mighty funky too – even more punctuated, with more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Academy/Voodoo Funk, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Early 70s Afro Funk treasures by the Apostles on a stunning 45 – material mined in a joint effort by Academy & Voodoo Funk – both among of the most reverent and respectful diggers of rare African recordings around these days! The Apostles have a unique vibe of their own, though ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
La Valla/Nora Se Va
Truth & Soul, 2006. New Copy
Quite possibly the heaviest groove we've heard to date from Bronx River Parkway – a tune that snaps out with a stark little break on the beginning – really crackling with a heavy funk energy, but also sharing a bit of Wu-Tang like piano in the background! As the tune rolls on, the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
My World/Love Comes And Goes
Truth & Soul, 2007. New Copy
One of the greatest tunes we've ever heard from Lee Fields – a super-mellow bit of funk that's more like Marvin Gaye than some of his previous James Brown-styled tunes! The track's got a great laidback groove – vibes, snapping drums, and just a bit of strings – all couched ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Truth & Soul, Late 70s. New Copy
Two cookers from Lee Fields – both cuts that show him at the top of his game! "Fought For Survival" has great drums and a heavy, fuzzy, funky sort of vibe – a righteous bassline that almost echoes Norman Whitfield work with The Temptations – but with a tighter funky 45 ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Truth & Soul, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A wicked groove from the Pacific Northwest underground of the early 70s – a collaboration between vocalist Shirley Nanette and the wild guitarist Hanc Swarn! "All Of Your Life" has these monstrous funky drums on the bottom – then mixes Shirley's righteous vocals with Hanc's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy
A sweet little slow-stepping funk number – one that's got some vague echo of The Meters buried way down there in the groove – underneath some very cool wah wah guitar lines with a wicked wangly feel – and these sad-tinged vocals right up top! The instrumental lets you focus more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funk Night, 2012. New Copy
Massive! "La Vendetta" has a wicked soundtrack funk approach – one that really lives up to its Italian name – drums echoing in a brooding, bottom-heavy space – with lots of other instrumentation swirling around up top – never too polished, and with the kind of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Daptone, 2002. New Copy
Sharon Jones does a wonderful job with this classic – getting some hard funky backings from The Dap-Kings, and soaring out over the top with the best reading of the lyric we've ever heard! There's a tasty sax solo in the middle of the track – and the instrumental flipside offers even ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, Early 70s. Very Good+
A bit goofy, but a pretty compelling record issued on Motown's MoWest subsidiary. "What The World Needs Now" is mixed with a version of "Abraham, Martin, & John", and features Clay asking kids what prejudice is, while militaristic sound effects and JFK speeches creep in and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, 1970. Very Good+
Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing political soul tune – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gold Coast, 1981. Near Mint-
A totally great mellow soul track – recorded during the late Curtom years, by a group that may or may not be the same one on Salsoul! "Yes I'm In Love" is a really heavenly little number – a tune that builds and burns with a solidly soulful feel – mature 80s soul at its ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Does Your Mama Know About Me/Fading Away
Gordy, 1968. Near Mint-
Two fantastic numbers from one of our favorite 60s groups! "Does Your Mama Know" is about as great as you can get for 60s deep soul – with an anthemic hook that will send chills down your spine from the first minute you hear it! "Fading Away" is a great mellow number, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Third Cup/Two By Two
Vanessa, 1969. Very Good+
A great single by this lost St. Louis guitar player! "The Third Cup" is a legendary classic in Chicago – and it's got this amazingly slow, amazingly dope groove that's always been a favorite with the jazz steppers. The flipside is great, too – and features Eddie going crazy ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
