These guys know how to use the word funky! Funky drums, funky guitar, funky organ, and funky bass – all jumping together in a monster groover that's even harder and heavier than any previous work by Sugarman Three! The cut's a killer – the kind that will make your jukebox jump right out of the wall, into the garage, and roll on down the road!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

I Can't Stand These Lonely Nights/Rub The Lamp
Ever-Soul/Daptone, Early 70s/2012. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet Jamaican-tinged take on this tune by Bob & Gene – one that features the duo's vocals set to grooves from the Inversions, a group led by Ticklah – all in a style that turns the soul track into a lost rocksteady number! The approach is mighty nice – strange at first, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
No Time For Dreaming/Golden Rule
Dunham/Daptone, 2010. New Copy
All new funky soul from Charles Bradley & The Menahan Street Band – a killer cover of Joe Quarterman's "No Time For Dreaming" and the groover "Golden Rule"! "No Time For Dreaming" wastes no time in getting to the good stuff – that tracks in full ... 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
Swingin/Lazy Woman Blues
Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
Swinging horns and soaring vocals – a great little groover from the band of Saunders King – and one that mixes up equal parts jazz and R&B! There's some sweet scatting on the vocals at times – almost in a Dizzy Gillespie mode – and "Lazy Woman Blues" has more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Bumble Bee/Think Twice
Fryer (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
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 ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Little You/My Babe
Popcorn (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
Very cool work from Dakota Staton – almost more R&B than her more familiar jazz vocal modes – with this romping rhythm that makes "Little You" a mighty hip groover right from the start! There's an excellent tenor solo in the middle, which further deepens the soul of the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
I'm In Love (inst parts 1 & 2)
Funk Night, 2012. New Copy
A rare instrumental take on a cut that Rickey Calloway cut with The Dap Kings a few years back – one that doesn't feature any vocals at all from Rickey – but has even more room for The Dap Kings to open up and groove! We're not sure why Rickey's name is on the label, but that oddness ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy
One of our favorite tracks ever from the great Gregory Porter – and one of the best recent jazz vocal tunes in years – all served up in a sweetly compact 45 edit that still retains all the care and charm of the original! "1960 What" gets similar treatment too – all ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
