Two takes on the famous "Fever" – both of them great!

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!

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

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!

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
