Horace SilverJody Grind (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great little number from Horace – begins with rolling piano lines, nicely soulful and a bit exotic, before the horns come in and pump the thing up with a funky modern edge! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two tight groovy instrumentals on the rare Chicago Maurici label, played by Simtec Simmons on his funky guitar, with driving backing by his band.

Slow SurfersBird/Get Yourself Together ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $3.99
Whether the label bills them as the Soul Surfers, or as the Slow Surfers, as they're going by on this 45, you know you're getting some masterful raw funk! "Bird" kicks off with some spare, but heavy organ and drums – which are both a sweet part of the pie with this mysterious ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bishop Smith & The Sensational Disciples BandBumps In The Road (vocal, instrumental) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
This bishop's no gold-cloaked, scepter-wielding, church figure – as the single's this mad bit of trippy soul – with the Smith singing in a style that's almost like Screaming Jay Hawkins – over slow-tripping funk that's very heavy on Hammond organ, and some nicely spaced-out guitar! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Oracle/Jazzaggression (Finland), Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
Two amazing tracks from underground Chicago jazz legend Paris Smith – back to back on a limited 45!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Smoke CityLove Affair (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Ampi, Mid 80s. Very Good ... $9.99
Mellow mid 80s soul from Chicago – a sweet slow stepper with a slightly jazzy polish, and a sound that's plenty nice overall – much more so than you'd expect from a tiny label! Vocals are female, and the tune's almost got a Phyllis Hyman sort of approach – slinkily seductive ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Soul ExplosivesTryin To Get Down/Ain't No Sunshine ... 7-inch
Big Crown, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $8.99 9.98
Rare raw funky soul from early 70s Texas! The Soul Explosives take a loose, swaggery approach to the period funk that's pretty great – with a looseness that really feels like a Lone Star State funk pedigree, but also indicative of the group's youth – as there were just high school ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul MotivatorsTito's Revenge/Aftermath ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
"Tito's Revenge" packs a rock-solid punch – a groove that begins with fast-moving congas, but also has this slower snapping bassline – peppered by these great horns that are halfway between Memphis soul and Addis Ababa! "Aftermath" is a mighty nice, too – more ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul ScratchPacified/Look How Far We've Come ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
Nobody's pacified here – as Soul Scratch leap right into the fray with lots of energy right from the very first note – setting up a fast funk frenzy that's matched only by the righteous energy of their excellent lead singer! The cut feels like a message cut 45 from back in the day ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Sugar feat Courtney JohnAll I Know (orig, version) ... 7-inch
Sugar Shack (France), 2015. New Copy ... $3.99
A moodier record than usual from Soul Sugar – still funky, but in a dark and slow-stepping style – one that feels nice and spooky, too, thanks to some good use of echo around the rhythms – all of which sets this perfect backdrop for the equally moody lyrics from Courtney John ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul SurfersSoul Power (alt mix)/Jam Session ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
An alternate mix of this killer funky cut from Soul Surfers – one that has the massive drums presented in a way that makes them even sharper than before – really dominating the cut, while a fast-stepping guitar riffs along, and a sweet Hammond organ takes off on a mighty solo! "Jam ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Johnny StarkWho Do You Love/Forever (Disco) ... 7-inch
TNT/Tramp (Germany), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A great modern soul tune from Johnny Stark – a singer who started out in a funkier mode in the early part of the 70s, but who emerges here with a wonderfully sophisticated sound overall! The tune's got the gentle groove and warm glow of our favorite work from Leroy Hutson, circa 1975 – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
