Anilza Leoni/Sambalanca TrioFesta Do Balamba/Samblues ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
A totally great cut from Anilza Leoni – a track that has this jazzy Hammond over fast-stepping drums – while Anizla sings in a cool scatting style over the top! The track's very unusual – a lot different than the usual bossa groover, but equally great! "Samblues" is a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Little George & The Mixed GenerationListen/Party ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Easy to listen with a groove this great – cut that begins with this completely bumping bassline, intercut by this cool flanged-out guitar – which is off on wicked territory of its own, while the drums snap fast, and Little George's youthful vocal calls out the tune! "Party" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Academy, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
Totally massive – and one of the most hard-breaking Afro Funk tunes we've ever heard! "Kana Soro" has these killer drums at the start – really hitting hard with a wicked crackle right away – then rolls into an organ line that almost feels like "The Message" by ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

LovehornIf (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Zodiac, Mid/Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great bit of sweet soul from 60s Chicago – a tune that steps slowly into the intro, with bass and organ tripping very lightly – then rolls into wonderful group vocals that harmonize along a predicated "if", and open into some almost spoken bits on the flip! Great tune, with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

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

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

Majestic ArrowsMagic Of Your Love/We Love Together ... 7-inch
Bandit, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $5.99
