✨✧ Marc 4Blues Work/Suoni Moderni ... 7-inch
Black Cat (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
"Blues Work" here is hardly the sound of American blues – and instead, is more in the mode of tight funky jazz – but with this cool sharp piano riffing over the top, very much in the best Duke Of Burlington style! "Suoni Moderni" is another great one from this cool instrumental combo – very bassy at the beginning, with a drum break nestled in at the bottom – which gets louder and sharper as the tune rolls on, with some great space for Hammond and Fender Rhodes lines too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Hand numbered limited edition of 333 copies.)

✨✧ Marc 4Sweet Beat/Ray Ban ... 7-inch
Black Cat (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
A definite sweet beat from this hip sound library combo – one that features romping drums and bass, topped by a very cool funky flute line that gives the tune a great jazzy vibe! "Ray Ban" is very nice too – a faster romp, but with a similar tight bass/drum groove – this time peppered with smoking Hammond licks that bubble at the beginning, then really take off in the solo! 7-inch, Vinyl record

24 - Carat BlackGhetto – Misfortune's Wealth/24 Carat Black (Theme) ... 7-inch
BGP (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
2 of the funkiest tracks ever from this legendary group! "Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth" is the title track to the group's album of the same name – and it's got a slow, sinister bass/keys riff that you'll recognize instantly from a million samples! The original tune still sounds better than any of the copies – and it somehow comes off better on 45 than on the full LP! The flipside features the longer, more open-ended jazzy groover "24 Carat Black Theme" – another killer funky number, with a wonderfully spacey groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Afro Kelenkye BandJungle Funk/Mother Africa/Munchin Session/Too Bad Girl (2 x 7" singles) ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, 1977. New Copy 2 x 7" single (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Rare funk from the Kelekye Band – material recorded after their legendary Moving World album, but never issued at the time! This amazing package is totally great – four tracks of offbeat Afro Funk, with an approach that's heavy on percussion, and topped by jazzy riffs that really complicate the sound – a vibe that goes way deeper than more common Afro modes of the time, thanks to the rich solo energy of the horns! Trumpet is especially nice, and works great with the vocals – especially when they hit a warmer 70s soul mode that almost makes the record feel like Hugh Masekela teaming up with The Blackbyrds. Titles include "Mother Africa", "Munchin Session", "Too Bad Girl", and "Jungle Funk". 7-inch, Vinyl record
