Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
A wonderful single from this incredible harmony group!

Cadet, 1969. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great single by this lost St. Louis guitar player!

Flipside/Athens Of The North (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $12.99
A fantastic modern soul single – and both cuts are great! "Havin A Party" isn't the Sam Cooke hit from years back – but instead this great fast-moving groover – with riffing guitar that flanges back and forth alongside the catchy lyric! "Music" is maybe even ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ FredLove Can Last Forever (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Stylart (Finland), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99

Edson FredericoTava Mas Nao Tava/Bobeira ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Lots of moogy keyboards at the start of "Tava Mas Nao Tava" – setting up a bassy groove that's topped with samba rhythms, and given a great soulful vocal from a bigger chorus – all in a funky Braza groove from the 70s! The same style follows suit on the flipside – with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great bit of old school hip hop – served up with plenty of funky 45 touches!

Drums are ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
Sweet organ and guitar do a mighty nice dance together at the start of "Kyenkyen Bi Adi" – then these wicked beats come in, all snapping and syncopated – while horns carve out this nicely exotic vibe over the top!
