Father Peter ScholtesMissa Bossa Nova EP ... 7-inch
FEL, 1968. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A church record, but a groovy one – featuring Peter Scholtes' "Missa Bossa Nova" – basically a recasting of traditional mass themes in a jaunty bossa nova way! The style of the record is very post-Vatican II – with Scholtes playing acoustic guitar in a folksy way, and ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Johnny ScottFragment (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch
Moscovitch (UK), 1965. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $12.99
Totally great soundtrack material from the great Johnny Scott – working here in more of the jazz mode in which he began his career, but already with an ear for some of the deeper, darker sides of the spectrum! The music's maybe a bit in the mode of some of the great Kenyon Hopkins ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dee Dee SharpIt's A Funny Situation/There Ain't Nothin' I Wouldn't Do For You ... 7-inch
Cameo, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
Nice one from Dee Dee's early years! "Funny Situation" has the kind of gospel-inflected soul sound that she's always been great at – but we really like "Ain't Nothin", which has a good sing-songy groove, and some good uptown production. The cut's also written by future ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dee Dee SharpWhat Kind Of Lady/The Bottle Or Me ... 7-inch
Gamble/Outta Sight (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $8.99
A Northern Soul classic from Dee Dee Sharp – a tune that begins with this fantastic fast piano over the groove, already totally wonderful at the start – then Dee Dee's raw vocals come in to blow the whole thing away! "The Bottle Or Me" is a great message-oriented cut – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

SharpeesMake Up Your Mind/I've Got A Secret ... 7-inch
One Der Ful, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
Benny Sharp and his group of Chicago groovers lay down two tracks of groovy soul with a loud blaring club feel to them. "I've Got a Secret" is a beautiful cut with a nice two step groove, and some cool cool vibes under the vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

SharpeesTake Me To Your Leader/Darkness Of The Night ... 7-inch
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
A great one from Chicago's Sharpees – an upbeat, uptempo groove that shows why the group were one of the boldest things going in the Windy City at the time – and a male group who could easily match the best that Detroit had to offer! The tune's got a nice bit of grit at the bottom, but ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Henry ShedGroove Into It/Let it Be ... 7-inch
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
"Groove Into It" is kind of a wild uptempo soul cut penned by Lalo Schifrin, and is listed on the label as being from the film "Pussycat, Pussycat I Love You", which we've never heard of. "Let It Be" is a soulful version of the Beatles big hit. Both sides are from ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby SheenSomething New To Do/I May Be What You Want ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
Sublime production from Clayton Ivey makes both of these tracks completely wonderful! "Something New To Do" has a bubbling groove that's upbeat and soaring – as Bobby's rough-edged vocals get a great blend with tight fuller arrangements by George Tipton! "I May Not Be" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Pauline ShiversYou're A Devil/Won't You Come Back Home ... 7-inch
O-Pex, Late 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
Heavy soul from this hip Chicago singer! "You're A Devil" begins with some nice fuzzy guitar – then hard steps into a righteous groove with Pauline and backup singers mixing the sweet with the fierce! "Won't You Come Back Home" is a sweeter tune – a great Chicago ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Horace SilverJody Grind (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A great little number from Horace – begins with rolling piano lines, nicely soulful and a bit exotic, before the horns come in and pump the thing up with a funky modern edge! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Spring, Early 70s. Very Good ... $3.99

✨✧ Simpson UniquityRunning Away (funky vibes, Diplomats Of Soul dub) ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great remake of one of the biggest cuts ever from the legendary Roy Ayers – done here with a version that's got even more vibes than the original! In fact, the core groove is very much like the Ayers recording, but the cut soon moves into loads of jazzy vibes – and also has a great ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bishop Smith & The Sensational Disciples BandBumps In The Road (vocal, instrumental) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
This bishop's no gold-cloaked, scepter-wielding, church figure – as the single's this mad bit of trippy soul – with the Smith singing in a style that's almost like Screaming Jay Hawkins – over slow-tripping funk that's very heavy on Hammond organ, and some nicely spaced-out guitar! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two amazing tracks from underground Chicago jazz legend Paris Smith – back to back on a limited 45!

Smoke CityLove Affair (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Ampi, Mid 80s. Very Good ... $6.99
Mellow mid 80s soul from Chicago – a sweet slow stepper with a slightly jazzy polish, and a sound that's plenty nice overall – much more so than you'd expect from a tiny label! Vocals are female, and the tune's almost got a Phyllis Hyman sort of approach – slinkily seductive ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
