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

Soul RunnersChittlin Salad (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
MoSoul, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
A thunderous funky instrumental – moving at half speed with a dark sinister sound, and kind of a wall of sound piano/guitar groove that's cut through with some very slick tenor work! Tasty stuff, with a stoned LA 60s funk sound to it! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a bit of pen.)

✨✧ Soul Sugar feat Courtney JohnAll I Know (orig, version) ... 7-inch
Sugar Shack (France), 2015. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

Soulful StringsStepper/Dock Of The Bay ... 7-inch
Cadet, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A nice groovy one from Richard Evans' Soulful Strings outifit! "The Stepper" has that tight short jazzy stepping groove that's still quite big in Chicago, with tightly plucked strings keeping the beat along with Richard's soulful bass! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has a sticker.)

South Shore CommissionWe're On The Right Track/I'd Rather Switch Than Fight ... 7-inch
Wand, 1975. Near Mint- ... $9.99
2 nice cuts from the early days of disco! "We're On the Right Track" does a wonderful job of mixing east coast harmony with more uptempo grooves – in a manner that many groups tried, but hardly as successfully as this one! It's a real winner, and probably the group's best cut! ... 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

Dexter Story with Kamasi WashingtonWejene Aola/Eastern Prayer ... 7-inch
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
Maybe the coolest cut we've ever heard from Dexter Story – and not just because Kamasai Washington plays some guest tenor sax! The whole groove is great – a reworking of an older Ethiopian track, but with a richer jazz funk feel – produced by Story with Carlos Nino, who also ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gene Stridel/Hal WatersLet Her Go/St James Infirmary ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
There's a nice echo and a sweet groove to "Let Her Go" – a vibe that really lives up to the "popcorn" sound promised in the label – especially when this cool snapping bongo line comes in alongside Gene's vocals! Hal Waters sends it nicely on the flipside – a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Barrett StrongLet's Rock/Do The Very Best You Can ... 7-inch
Tamla/Third Man, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Great work from one of Motown's first big male soul singers! "Let's Rock" is a romping number – almost R&B, and with a rough-edged production tip that definitely keeps its edge – and "Do The Very Best You Can" is a great blue soul number – slow-moving, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful reissue pressing – in a tricycle logo paper sleeve just like the early Tamla pressing!)

Barrett StrongMoney (That's What I Want)/Oh, I Apologize ... 7-inch
Tamla/Third Man, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
One of Motown's earliest hits! This is the classic first version of this great cut that was covered by the Beatles, The Flying Lizards, and a million other groups – but it sounds better than ever as a stomping soul tune in the hands of Barrett Strong! The flipside's mighty nice, too – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

The first single in Rhino's Meet Your Maker series – pairing classic hip hop tracks with an iconic song from which it pulled a core funky sample! They couldn't have picked a finer example for the series debut, featuring Sugarhill Gang's most legendary number "Rapper's Delight" with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 1976/2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
A pair of boundary busting tunes steeped in tropical rhythms – one a rare Brazilian samba psych groover from 1976 – the other an Afro Latin and hip hop inspired jam from 2016! "Grilos Da Vida" by Sao Paulo's Banda Jardes is the vintage cut, kicking off with sweet organ and a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Swinging Stars Of DominicaLas Mal Parle/Jam Jam ... 7-inch
Sofrito (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
There's a great romping rhythm to "Las Mal Parle" – almost a cumbia vibe, but a bit different too – as the tune's peppered by some wonderful horns, including this trombonist who really sounds like he's on fire! "Jam Jam" begins with this nicely spacey keyboard line ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
