Highest-quality modern funk from The Qualitons! "Rolling The Bones" is a real scorcher – highlighted on the instrumental front by some limber drum work augmented by handclaps – and with the organ and guitar grooves playing off each other in a really exciting way! This one's got some raw soul guest vocals by Andy Helfer, too. Nice one! The flip is entirely different style of funk – a cut with more of an organ and horns-heavy Afro Funk approach – and it's a strong one. 2 sides of one stellar combo!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tramp (Germany), 2009. New Copy
Loads of fast-riffing guitar on this one – starting the tune up like a buzzsaw, and recorded with a great sort of echo – which really gives the whole track a classic funky 45 feel! And speaking of buzzsaw, there's some moogy bits that blast into the mix too – sounding almost like ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Soulfly/Tramp (Germany), 2013. New Copy
A spare funky number, but a great one too – just these catchy vocals, a great bassline, and percolating percussion – all with a feel that's somewhere in the territory of a lost number by Joe Quaterman! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Dynamic Sound/Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A tasty groover! "Won't You Forget" has blaring horns, fast guitar, bubbling organ, and very catchy vocals – almost in a southern Swingin Medallions mode, but rawer, and with a strong party groove throughout. "Feel Like A Fool" is more of the same – swinging hard ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Soul Chicken/Lonely Christmas Tears
Tramp (Germany), 1970. New Copy
Two killers! "Soul Chicken" has this great booming break right at the start – which then leads into this tight chicken scratch guitar, and these wicked lead vocals from Bobby Allen! A great funky rarity that borrows from many – but in a really great way! "Lonely ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Tramp (Germany), 2004. New Copy
Nothin But A Party – but what a party it is! The track's a non-stop groover that rolls like a train out of control – drums chasing bass chasing horns all over the place – as the track fast-riffs out a groove that's amazingly tight for the speed at which it's taken! The group ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
It's Got To Be Somethin/Gettin' Soul (Part 1)
PKC/Tramp (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A couple of hard grooving tracks from Aalon Butler & The New Breed Band! "It's Got To Be Something" is a nice raw edge to the rhythm and some really feverish vocals by Butler. On the other side, you're getting' plenty of soul on "Gettin Soul (Part 1) – and plenty of funk, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Tramp (Germany), 2008. New Copy
Gritty modern funk with an impeccably dusty vibe – the first thing we've heard from Lucky Brown –and hopefully not the last! "Don't Go Away" is a tight, heavy number the wholly belongs to the killer early 70s school of funk – a modern jam that exudes all the dust and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
James Brown's Boo-Ga-Loo (2 versions)
Tramp (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy
Fast, frenetic funk – a romping 60s take on "James Brown's Boogaloo" – done at a level that's even rawer than the original from The Godfather himself! The guitar moves super-fast – cutting the tune with a razor-sharp rhythm that's then peppered with burning organ lines ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Tramp (Germany), 2013. New Copy
A very physical groove from the Mighty Mocambos – one that has the band starting out with a tight funky strut right from the start – and bouncing nicely with a bit of bongos underneath the bass and drums! Caroline Lacaze sings some excellent French language soulful vocals – then ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Big Muffler/Snake Oil Man
Secret Stash, 2013. New Copy
Killer contemporary Afrobeat from Black Market Brass! "Big Muffler" has deep sounds at the bottom that perfectly match the sharp guitar and horns on the top – a brooding bassy energy that really gives the whole thing a very classic feel – and a sound that's mighty funky too! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Hey Girl/Sugarman
Secret Stash, 2013. New Copy
A new track from Twin Cities soul legend Sonny Knight – recorded recently, but with some very sharp backing from The Lakers – a deep funk groove that's maybe heavier than anything Sonny got back in the day! The flipside is even cooler – a remake of "Sugar Man" by ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Electraphonic, 2013. New Copy
Memphis soul legend Percy Wiggins sounds mighty great here working with the Bo-Keys – those wonderfully crackly vocals we loved on his vintage work on singles – set here to some tighter, funkier instrumentation overall! The group get their own time in the spotlight on the flipside ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
