Wilson Simonal/Trio MocotoNem Vem Que Nao Tem/Nao Adianta ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
One of the coolest cuts ever from Wilson Simonal – the bad-stepping "Nem Vem Que Nao Tem" – a tune that's got this electric bassline chugging out the rhythm, while Simonal sings jazzily over the top – in this very hip approach to Brazilian soul in the 60s! The flipside ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Simtec & WylieGotta Get Over The Hump/Nine Times Out Of Ten ... 7-inch
Mister Chand, Early 70s. Good ... $0.99
A great groover from this hard Chisoul duo! "Gotta Get Over The Hump" is one of those cuts that seems to be just a groovy soul number – but it's also got a deep message in there somewhere, brought out by the group's full-on vocal approach! Flipside is nice, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has some light pen.)

✨✧ Sisters LoveYou've Got To Make The Choice/Mr Fix It Man ... 7-inch
MoWest, 1972. Very Good ... $9.99
Willie Hutch handled both of these numbers – giving them a style that mixes the group's rootsier soul background with some of the west coast funk that Motown was picking up during the early 70s. The best number is "Fix It", which has a vamping little groove and great deep soul ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Slow SurfersBird/Get Yourself Together ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $6.99
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

George SmallwoodHey Mama/I Love My Father ... 7-inch
Peoples Potential, Early 80s. New Copy ... $8.99
Beautifully soulful work from George Smallwood – the kind of effortless groove that George can do so easily, even though he's never had the backing of a big label or fancy studio production! "Hey Mama" flows out in this beautiful mix of keyboards and Smallwood's soulful vocals ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Elza Soares/ElizabethMas Que Nada/Vou Falar-Lhe Francamente ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Great work from samba soul genius Elza Soares! "Mas Que Nada" is one of Elza's greatest tunes ever – a fierce remake of the Jorge Ben hit, done with some soaring, jazzy backings, and served up in a delightful way that's made the track a jazz dance classic for years! Elizabeth ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Solar ShieldReesis/Beeturia ... 7-inch
Austin Boogie Crew, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
"Reesis" is a sweet bit of instrumental electro funk from Solar Shield – almost a small combo version of an 80s track by Zapp – but retooled for a funky 45 sort of sound! Keyboards are great – and really take off on "Beeturia" – a tune with an equally ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

SonicsPsycho/Maintaining My Cool (clear orange colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Jerden/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $9.99
A howling classic by The Sonics! "Psycho" will always be one of our favorite Sonics' tunes – a scorcher with an R&B influence – done with a maniacal proto-punk urgency. That sax honking behind those bugged-out vocals – it's absolutely essential! "Maintaining ... (Rock, Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Sugar feat Courtney JohnAll I Know (orig, version) ... 7-inch
Sugar Shack (France), 2015. New Copy ... $6.99
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

Spirit Of LovePower Of Your Love/He's Alright ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A snapping bassy groover from Spirit Of Love – a track that's got a vibe that's almost 80s soul overall, especially the cool kind of indie work from the underground! A female singer steps out, loud and proud in the lead – maybe reminding us a bit of Paulette Reeves on TK – while ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Barbara StantMy Mind Holds On To Yesterday/Baby I Love You ... 7-inch
Record Shack (Austria), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Two great cuts from this excellent obscure Virginia singer – who cut most of her work on the Norfolk scene of the 70s! "My Mind Holds On To Yesterday" mixes modern soul grooves with a nice deep soul vocal from Barbara – who really gives the tune a lot of depth, and makes it ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Edwin StarrAgent Double O Soul (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Ric Tic, Late 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
A Northern Soul classic – and one of Edwin's greatest cuts ever! The tune's got a hip, high stepping dancefloor beat, with lyrics by Edwin that are really cool, a soul take on James Bond, with a lot of twists and turns in the lyrics that are nice and clever, and which give the track a mod ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Starship ConnectionHeartbreaker/Do It 4 U (white vinyl pressing) ... 7-inch
Austin Boogie Crew, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99
A great remake of Zapp's classic "Heartbreaker" – done here by a contemporary San Francisco duo who strip the tune down to its core essence! The beats, bass, and keyboards fuse together wonderfully – with a sound that's maybe even funkier and more powerful than the original ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
