✨✧ Al GreenBack Up Train/Don't Leave Me ... 7-inch
Hot Line, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great little single from Al – recorded in the pre-Hi, pre-Willie Mitchell days, when he was working with the Soul Mates group, and working with an "e" on the end of his last name. "Back Up Train" has a nice punch in the ballad groove – very mellow, but also slyly funky! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Bell sleeve.)

✨✧ Brother SoulTrain Song/Mr Boogie ... 7-inch
Fraternity, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A train grinds to a halt at the top of this sweet funky gem – then the band leaps into a non-stop groove that's totally outta sight! While the JBs may cross the tracks, these guys take over the whole train line – and slide down the rails with effortless easy – in this joyous funky mode that has congas riffing at fast time underneath tight horns – all while a wah-wah guitar carves out a snakey funky line in the middle! "Mister Boogie" is plenty funky too – with these tight snapping drums that are faster than the usual break, but at a level that really blows us away with their timing and power – even once the tune's badass guitar solo comes into the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Spanish Town Skabeats/Prince Buster All StarsStop That Train/Dark Destroyer ... 7-inch
Soulsville Center/Rockashacka (Japan), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Very cool work from The Spanish Town Skabeats – an early Prince Buster combo who work here with bold horns, and this cool mix of male and female vocal in the lead – which creates a vibe that's pretty unique, even during these highly creative years of Jamaican music! "Dark Destroyer" is more Buster at his early best – a cut that has this strongly jazzy sensibility in both the sax and the trumpet, even though the overall groove is pure rocksteady! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fantastic Johnny CHitch It To The Horse/Cool Broadway ... 7-inch
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Two funky groovers from Johnny C! "Cool Broadway" takes up where "Funky Broadway" left off – dancing along at a similar beat, but slightly more restrained, or "cool", if you will. "Hitch It" vamps along in that Cliff Nobles "Horse" groove – rolling hard and heavy with a lot of horns, jerking along nicely to the end! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Includes jukebox tab.)

Alan ParkerOne Summer (7 inch soundtrack EP) ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $14.99
A pretty amazing bit of lost soundtrack/sound library grooves from Alan Parker – a KPM/DeWolfe library composer and player whose work has appeared on obscure film and television projects, legendary recordings such as Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire De Melody Nelson and so much more! This great little Finder's Keeper's soundtrack EP features his theme and other bits recorded for the 1983 TV series One Summer – with strains of melodious folk guitar arpeggios, to a jittery post-punk action vibe, to forlorn harmonica and more. Really cool stuff! 6 short tracks including "One Summer (Billy & Icky)", "Billy & Jo", "The Tollbooth", "Southport", "Roller Coaster", "Lime Street (End Titles)" and "Please Close The Gate". 7-inch, Vinyl record
