Not Rickey Calloway at all – but just The Dap Kings, stepping out in an instrumental reading of the tune! The track's a stone smoker right out of the James Brown generation of the late 60s – really wicked drums at the bottom, which step out in this snapping breakdown near the end of part 1 – setting a fire that's picked up beautifully on part 2! Proof that the Kings are always great – even away from Daptone!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Funk Night, 2012. New Copy
A stone funky gem that's mighty nice all the way through! The tune's got a popping, percolated drum part that's almost in "Tighten Up" territory – and other instrumentation leaps around beautifully, including cool thin organ lines, tightly blasting horns, and this backyard bassline ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
777/Sex Machine
777/Funk Night, 2012. New Copy
Three dudes, but pretty darn funky dudes at that – working together here on two razor-sharp instrumentals! "777" has mad bass and crackling drums – both recorded with a slightly muddy quality, so that they blend together beautifully in the groove – and leave plenty of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Rojac, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
We've definitely got the jones for this cool little cut – a righteous funky number about the evil power of drugs – but set to one of the trippiest grooves we've ever heard! The track feels like a raw indie take on territory explored by The Temptations and Norman Whitfield – but ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daptone, 2004. New Copy
A funky funky riffer from Charles Bradley and his Bullets! "Now That I'm Gone" is one of the best pieces of new deep funk we've heard in a long time – with searing guitars that rip through the whole thing, and give the tune a really sinister edge that seems to push Charles' vocals ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daptone, 2004. New Copy
Sharon's got her political agenda straight on this one – working with heavy heavy backings from the Dap-Kings on a hip message-oriented cut that ranks with the best of the early 70s! The groove's overflowing with tight wah wah guitar, topped off by some nice chromatic Willie Hutch-like work ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daptone, 2005. New Copy
The first funky outing we've ever heard from The Budos Band – but a really tasty funky set, with a raw and stripped-down feel! "Up From The South" is a chugging, churning mass of snapping drum breaks and scratchy guitar – topped by a well-crafted horn part that comes in as ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Daptone, 2006. New Copy
Love the drums on this one – all skittish and snapping at the beginning – really setting the scene perfectly for the Afro Funk-styled horns that top off the tune and really set the tone! The track's like some lost Nigerian 45 from the 70s – and given excellent production to ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
