✨✧ Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca/Mr Funky Samba ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two fantastic funky cuts from this legendary Brazilian group! "Maria Fumaca" has fast-changing funky jazz rhythms that are completely outta sight – almost more a 70s Bay Area jazz funk groove overall, complete with great horns and keyboards! "Mr Funky Samba" is another great instrumental – and is maybe a lot more funk than samba – with excellent trombone work that would make Wayne Henderson blush! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousStudio One Dub Plate Special (5 x 7 inch box set) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 5 x 7 inch set ... Out Of Stock
A set that definitely lives up to its title – as all the cuts here are unreleased gems from the Studio One catalog – which makes the whole thing feel like a set of obscure dubplate-only releases from back in the day! The Soul Jazz label have been working with Studio One for almost 20 years – and they've got an amazing ear for under-discovered work in the label's rich archives – which they really bring to bear in this limited set of funky 45s! Titles include "Black People" by Alton & Cedric, "Soul Eye" by Cedric Brooks, "Distant Drums" by The Officials, "Skitting Day" by Soul Brothers, "Go Ahead" by Carey Johnson, "Westbound Train (alt version)" by Jacob Miller, "One (alt version)" by George Philip, "The World Is A Ghetto" by Brentford All Stars, "You Don't Know What You're Doing" by Alton & Zoot, and "Power To The People" by Cedric Brooks. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Banda Black Rio/MieleMiss Cheryl/Melo Do Tagarela (Rapper's Delight inst) ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two killer slices of Brazilian funk! The instrumental "Miss Cheryl" is one of the trademark tunes of Banda Black Rio – a cut with these sharp, jazzy changes that are completely amazing – and which easily have BBR rivaling the sound of Earth Wind & Fire at their best! The flipside is a very cool remake of "Rapper's Delight" – one that starts out in familiar territory on the start, but then has a jazzier piano line instead of the vocal, and a wicked guitar solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ BlackbyrdsHappy Music/Love So Fine ... 7-inch
Fantasy, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great single by this legendary jazz funk group! "Happy Music" is a killer uptempo track – with these wild spacey guitars going back and forth on the intro in a way that still leaves us stunned. "Love So Fine" is great, too – and has a fantastic jazzy intro with a rumbling bass that's been sampled more than once! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Marcos Valle/Don BetoA Paraiba Nao E Chicago/Nao Quero Mais ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1978/1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite later tunes by Marcos Valle – a fantastic bit of modern soul that was created with help from Leon Ware – and which also has the same great vibe as some of Ware's best groovers from the start of the 80s, but with a Brazilian twist too! The flipside features Don Beto on "Nao Quero Mais" – a sharp bit of jazzy funk that's very much in the best spirit of contemporary combo Banda Black Rio – but with a bolder vocal approach from Don over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record
