Wow! "Rattlesnake Baby Rattlesnake" is a KILLER R&B number from Joe Johnson – starting out with the slinkiest, coolest and moodiest percussive rhythm to start it – before Joe growls and the guitar leads the way for the horns and the whole groove to crash on in. From there, it's a catchy dancefloor stormer. We wish this one got the whole country doing the rattlesnake! "Gold Diggin' Man" is great, too – with a drum heavy bottom end, slinky guitar groove and tight horn bursts behind Joe's wailing vocals.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Funk 45 (UK), Late 70s. New Copy
A massive bit of funk from this under-exposed 70s combo – a group who come down tight and right on the money for "Heartbreaker" – with the kind of professional-yet-raw funky approach that's been getting them plenty of attention these days! The tune's a killer – one of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho (2 versions)
Popcorn (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A traditional spiritual number – but one that gets a great soul workout here in two different versions! Linda Hopkins and Jackie Wilson trade lead lyrics on their version – alongside a big chorus that lifts the whole thing up to heavenly proportions, while a tight combo keeps the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Juke Box Jam (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy
A New Orleans-themed number from Joe Liggins – served up with the kind of R&B vibe we'd expect from Mr Honeydripper! "Going Back To New Orleans" is a vocal number, but one that also gives the tenor plenty of voice too – almost its own instrumental lyric that answers Joe's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Crawlin (two versions)
Jazzman (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Nothin crawlin about either groove here – as both of the tracks are mighty darn nice! The Untouchables "Crawlin" is a gritty instrumental with lots of R&B touches – a stepping bassline that's peppered with an echoey tenor solo and a nice guitar bit – all sewn ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Checker/Jazzman (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
A nice bit of romantic advice from bluesman Sugarboy Crawford – laid out here in a groove that's got plenty of early New Orleans soul elements in the rhythms! The tune's got a tripling quality that's mighty sweet – and is offset perfectly by the lead vocals and tenor solo! "You ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Jazzman (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Not sure what a "shumba" is, but on this single it means a great little groove – an uptempo rhythm that has a few exotic touches – and which seems to really set the girl group on fire! By the end, they're screaming more than harmonizing – which makes for a really mad ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mr Custer Stomp/Firewater
Jazzman (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
Two sweet redskinned grooves – both almost novelty numbers, but with a wickedly sharp sound too! "Mr Custer Stomp" is a raw gritty guitar instrumental – clearly an answer to the hit "Mr Custer", but served up here with a lot more twang upfront, and just some ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy
Arizona funk from George Bowman and his Memphis Soul – recorded at Phoenix's Audio Recorders studio in the late 60s – completely unreleased until now by Numero! "Don't Down Me People" is purely funky on a couple levels, most notably via the JB-schooled vocals by ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Powerful Love/Bear
Twinight/Numero, Late 60s. New Copy
A powerful single from the team of Chuck & Mac – and easily one of the deepest soul records we've heard on Twinight! "Powerful Love" has this beautiful slow-burning feel that's completely sublime – a stone mellow duet that has the vocals rising up together wonderfully ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Two cool cuts from the Twin Cities scene – pressed up here on extra-cool purple vinyl! "I Love You" is a percolating track that has a sweetly dancing groove that works perfectly with Herman's vocal style – a bit falsetto, but right on the money – especially on the hook! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
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
