Buddy LucasI Can't Go/Get Away Fly ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
"I Can't Go" is a real killer from Buddy Lucas – a tune with this very cool, sinster organ that bubbles underneath his vocals – almost sounding electronic at points, then bursting out with a sonic vibe that really sends the lyrics over the top! "Get Away" is pretty ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jon LucienWould You Believe Me/A Sunny Day ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Two superb tracks from the great Jon Lucien – both gems from his early 70s years on RCA! "Would You Believe" may well be the closest that Jon ever came to cutting a groover – an upbeat tune with a great jazzy vibe over this quick-stepping bassline – all a perfect foil ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Harold Mabern/Funk IncI Want You Back/Sister Janie ... 7-inch
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1970/1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Funky jazz gems from Prestige – back to back on a single 45! "I Want You Back" is maybe the funkiest cut ever recorded by pianist Harold Mabern – a killer instrumental remake of the Jackson 5 hit, complete with bold horns on the top in place of the vocals – which then ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Main IngredientEverybody Plays The Fool/Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me) ... 7-inch
RCA, 1972. Very Good ... $2.99
2 sweet soul classics from the Main Ingredient! "Everybody Plays The Fool" is probably the group's best-remembered track but "Who Can I Turn To" is no slouch either. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Majestic ArrowsMagic Of Your Love/We Love Together ... 7-inch
Bandit, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $5.99
An excellent harmony soul single by this lost sweet soul group from Chicago! The production and vocals have a real east coast style, with soaring sweet bits, and cool dope soulful arrangements that work beautifully in a Whatnauts/Moments kind of way. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Chico Mann with Kendra MorrisNobody Wants To (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Chico Mann creates some nicely dope beats here – laidback, but still totally funky and laced with sweet keyboards – perfect for bringing out the most soulful currents in the vocals of Kendra Morris! The flipside features an instrumental – which seems to have even more sweet keys ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Shane Martin/Taj MahalI Need You/A Lot Of Love ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $9.99
A great bit of blue-eyed Northern Soul from Shane Martin – a tune that mixes upbeat rhythms and a touch of strings – in a mode that might have been more popcorn a few years before, but which here really takes off with a lot of Detroit energy in the groove! And on the flipside, Taj ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Master Plan IncTry It (You'll Like It)/Master Plan Intro ... 7-inch
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
The title's a reference to a once-famous ad campaign, but the groove is pure funky soul all the way through – from the sweet break that starts the single, to the soaring lead vocals that really make the whole thing wonderful! The tune may well be one of the best 45s we've ever heard reissued ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ MatoT Stands For Trouble/Enter The Dragon ... 7-inch
Stix (France), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99
Mato remakes of two great 70s soundtrack cuts – both nice and funky! "T" is from Trouble Man – and done here in a sweet style that mixes in melodica lines with a funky rhythm and tight horns – and "Enter The Dragon" gets a cool Kingston kick in the rhythms, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tony McPheeHunt (Revbjelde edit, Revbjelde waltz) ... 7-inch
Buried Treasure (UK), 1973. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $7.99
A wonderfully weird cut – one that mixes lots of cool analogue electronics with a slightly proggish vocal line from Tony McPhee – all then taken into really wild directions by the edit here! The whole thing's almost got the mix of funk and trippiness that we love in the best Finders ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jack McVeaWino/Wine-o ... 7-inch
Juke Box Jam (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Jack McVea's a hell of a tenorist – and also a cat who can come up with a wickedly playful R&B groove – as you'll hear on both sides of this single! "Wino" has a fast-romping piano groove, and a singer shouting out the title – alternating with some mighty soulful ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Menahan Street BandLights Out/Keep Coming Back ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2012. New Copy (pic cover)... $4.99
A sweet little single from Menahan Street Band! "Lights Out" has this slow funk brilliance that's almost lifted off a rare 70s soundtrack – beats that are hard, but mellow too – topped by these snakey horns that really bring in a blue sort of feel to the music – almost ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hailu MergiaYegle Nesha/Hailu ... 7-inch
Philophon, Late 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
Two great cuts from Hailu Mergia – both of them instrumentals, with a wicked blend of keyboard lines and African rhythms! "Yegle Nesha" has what sounds like a Fender Rhodes line – stepping over this head-nodding midtempo rhythm – a nicely stepping groove that never gets ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
