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

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

Horace SilverJody Grind (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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

Simtec Simmons & BandComing On Strong (With It)/Computing ... 7-inch
Maurici, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $1.99
Two tight groovy instrumentals on the rare Chicago Maurici label, played by Simtec Simmons on his funky guitar, with driving backing by his band. "Coming On Strong" has perpetual choppy riffs, while "Computing" has short cutting noise from the guitar that's supposed to sound ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Slow SurfersBird/Get Yourself Together ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $3.99
Whether the label bills them as the Soul Surfers, or as the Slow Surfers, as they're going by on this 45, you know you're getting some masterful raw funk! "Bird" kicks off with some spare, but heavy organ and drums – which are both a sweet part of the pie with this mysterious ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bishop Smith & The Sensational Disciples BandBumps In The Road (vocal, instrumental) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
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
(Hand numbered limited edition of 250!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Smoke CityLove Affair (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Ampi, Mid 80s. Very Good ... $9.99
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

✨✧ Soul ExplosivesTryin To Get Down/Ain't No Sunshine ... 7-inch
Big Crown, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $8.99 9.98
Rare raw funky soul from early 70s Texas! The Soul Explosives take a loose, swaggery approach to the period funk that's pretty great – with a looseness that really feels like a Lone Star State funk pedigree, but also indicative of the group's youth – as there were just high school ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul MotivatorsIt Ain't Fair But It's Fun/Side Hustle ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A wickedly classic funky 45 – a contemporary recording, but one that's got all the dark-tinged, muddy-cornered funk of a rare gem from the indie scene at the start of the 70s! The production's the star here as much as the band – and the two come together in the kind of perfect groove ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul MotivatorsTito's Revenge/Aftermath ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
"Tito's Revenge" packs a rock-solid punch – a groove that begins with fast-moving congas, but also has this slower snapping bassline – peppered by these great horns that are halfway between Memphis soul and Addis Ababa! "Aftermath" is a mighty nice, too – more ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul ScratchPacified/Look How Far We've Come ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
Nobody's pacified here – as Soul Scratch leap right into the fray with lots of energy right from the very first note – setting up a fast funk frenzy that's matched only by the righteous energy of their excellent lead singer! The cut feels like a message cut 45 from back in the day ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
