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

Joe SimonTheme From Cleopatra Jones/Who Was That Lady ... 7-inch
Spring, Early 70s. Very Good ... $3.99

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

Oracle/Jazzaggression (Finland), Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
Two amazing tracks from underground Chicago jazz legend Paris Smith – back to back on a limited 45! "Thought Seeds" is this amazing blend of vibes, alto sax, and haunting female vocals – a very righteous tune, and one with a spirit that's unlike anything else we can think of ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

Soul Brothers SixYour Love Is Such A Wonderful Thing/I Can't Live Without You ... 7-inch
Atlantic, Late 60s. Good ... $4.99
One of the most legendary non-LP sides ever cut on Atlantic! The Soul Brothers Six were the kind of tight little soul group that Atlantic loved to champion – and although they never made a full album for the label, this single is one of the best soul tracks Atlantic ever issued during the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Crusaders OrchestraFunky Jive/Pretty Lil Mama ... 7-inch
More Soul, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $11.99
"Funky Jive" is one of the most amazing lost funky 45's of all time! Very slow hard groove, chugging along with a piano that keeps clanking over and over again – all off-key, but very edgey sounding. Sounds like a bunch of guys trying to move a piano up a staircase, but stopping ... 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 ... $6.99
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

✨✧ 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 RunnersChittlin Salad (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
MoSoul, Late 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
A thunderous funky instrumental – moving at half speed with a dark sinister sound, and kind of a wall of sound piano/guitar groove that's cut through with some very slick tenor work! Tasty stuff, with a stoned LA 60s funk sound to it! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a bit of pen.)

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

Soul Sugar feat Courtney JohnAll I Know (orig, version) ... 7-inch
Sugar Shack (France), 2015. New Copy ... $3.99
A moodier record than usual from Soul Sugar – still funky, but in a dark and slow-stepping style – one that feels nice and spooky, too, thanks to some good use of echo around the rhythms – all of which sets this perfect backdrop for the equally moody lyrics from Courtney John ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Johnny StarkWho Do You Love/Forever (Disco) ... 7-inch
TNT/Tramp (Germany), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A great modern soul tune from Johnny Stark – a singer who started out in a funkier mode in the early part of the 70s, but who emerges here with a wonderfully sophisticated sound overall! The tune's got the gentle groove and warm glow of our favorite work from Leroy Hutson, circa 1975 – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
