Duffy JacksonI Feel Good/Tamahawk ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
Rare jazz funk from drummery Duffy Jackson! "I Feel Good" is a big band take on the JB classic – credited to The Duffy Jackson Orchestra – but the combo wisely keeps it a bit loose and genuinely funky. Nice gritty vocals by Johnny Apollo. "Tamahawk" is another ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ellen Jackson Big Star Band/King CainGetto Boogie/Don't Give A Damn ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Big Star/Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
Not the kind of "boogie" you might know from the early 80s club years – but instead a grittier, funkier version of the style – served up here in a wicked rare funky 45! Ellen Jackson's vocals are nice and raw – almost distorted at times, given the rough recording ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Calla, Late 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the greatest pop soul singles of all time! Even though we hear it lots of times on oldies stations, we still get a thrill from the great raw sound of "But It's Alright" – especially the great choppy guitar bit on the intro!

JadeSiesta Is Over/Viva Tirado ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Rare late 70s Latin soul from Jade! "The Siesta Is Over" is a killer mix of styles – anchored strongly by funk, thanks of the limber bass line, JBs-inspired horns, raw drums and organ – but it's got a sunny vibe, too, thanks the groovy male and female harmony vocals. The ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

New JaguarsJaguar/Roundabout ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Epic, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A heavy instrumental groove from The Jaguars – the group's eponymous tune, and a wicked blend of raspy guitar, whomping drums, and this low-blown tenor sax that feels like it's a locomotive whistle recorded at a very slow speed! "Roundabout" is another romping groove – fast-ch ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tramp (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
Fast, frenetic funk – a romping 60s take on "James Brown's Boogaloo" – done at a level that's even rawer than the original from The Godfather himself! The guitar moves super-fast – cutting the tune with a razor-sharp rhythm that's then peppered with burning organ lines ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Philophon (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $9.99
The Sahel Souls deliver a great laidback groove on "Zota Yinne" – a tune that slinks along with a mix of dub and Ghana styles – with cool chorus vocals over the top! "Starlet Road" has an equally moody vibe – almost an El Michels take on Afro Funk – with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Big Pimp JonesBring Your Love To Me (voc, inst) ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $6.99
A sweet little slow-stepping funk number – one that's got some vague echo of The Meters buried way down there in the groove – underneath some very cool wah wah guitar lines with a wicked wangly feel – and these sad-tinged vocals right up top! The instrumental lets you focus more ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Daptone, 2002. New Copy ... $4.99
Sharon Jones does a wonderful job with this classic – getting some hard funky backings from The Dap-Kings, and soaring out over the top with the best reading of the lyric we've ever heard! There's a tasty sax solo in the middle of the track – and the instrumental flipside offers even ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Daptone, 2004. New Copy ... $5.99
Sharon's got her political agenda straight on this one – working with heavy heavy backings from the Dap-Kings on a hip message-oriented cut that ranks with the best of the early 70s! The groove's overflowing with tight wah wah guitar, topped off by some nice chromatic Willie Hutch-like work ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
