✨✧ Staple SingersI'll Take You There/I'm Just Another Soldier ... 7-inch
Stax, 1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Their biggest hit, and a perennial favorite whenever advertising companies need some sort of a soulful backing for a travel commercial. Might be a big sample track, but the girls sing too much over the groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Includes jukebox strip.)

✨✧ Staple SingersLet's Do It Again/After Sex ... 7-inch
Curtom, 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Two of the best numbers from the soundtrack to Let's Do It Again! Curtis Mayfield wrote both tracks – and although you're probably familiar with the funky favorite "Let's Do It Again", you'll also totally dig the spacey soul classic "After Sex"! The cut's got a spare moody feel, a mix of harp and spare guitar, building piano riffing, voices, and very light orchestrations. Incredibly haunting, and it brings back the glory days of the old Cadet Studios scene! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Includes jukebox strip.)

✨✧ Average White BandPick Up The Pieces/Work To Do ... 7-inch
Atlantic, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An enduring piece of funk that managed to crossover to the mainstream, with it's hooky horn lines and nice jazzy phrasing over a tight, popping rhythm, plus a nice rendition of one of our favorite Isley's tunes on the flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dave BaileyTwo Feet In The Gutter – Stereo Seven Artist Of The Week (5 x 7" singles) ... 7-inch
Epic, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally amazing version of this classic album – promo only, with five 7" singles that feature each track on the album – in a special sleeve along with a 7" replica of the cover art! Hardbop albums don't get any better than this – and although drummer Dave Bailey only recorded for a brief stretch as a leader, this session's one that shows that he was a heck of a force to contend with! The record's got an intensity that easily rivals the best by Art Blakey over at Blue Note during the early 60s – but Dave's also got a slightly looser groove too – a bit more sense of humanity, and one that allows for really organic interplay between the players. There's a slight soul jazz undercurrent – especially in the piano lines of Billy Gardner – and other players in the quintet include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, and Ben Tucker on bass. The group wails on an early version of Tucker's classic "Comin' Home Baby", plus other great originals like "Coffee Walk", "Lady Iris B", and "Two Feet In the Gutter". A old favorite on the south side of Chicago! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Envelope has light wear, and top flap has some rips and more wear.)

✨✧ Milt JacksonJazz N Samba (7 inch jukebox EP) ... 7-inch
Impulse, 1964. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little jukebox teaser off one of our favorite Milt Jackson LP's, one where steps out more in a Verve pop jazz mode than his typical highbrow third stream or strident bop approaches – with bossa backings and good small combo work. Lillian Clark sings on 2 cuts – "Jazz N Samba" and "Kiss & Run" – and the set also features the great groovers "Blues For Juanita", "I Got IT Bad And That Ain't Good", and the incredible "The Oo-Oo Bossa Nova", which features Joe E Ross from Car 54 going "Oo Oo!" on the breakdowns! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has completely split seams and comes in two pieces, with a name in red marker on front & back. Labels have some marker.)

✨✧ Mr FingersCan You Feel It/Washing Machine ... 7-inch
Trax/Get On Down, 1986. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem! Larry Heard's classic work as Mr Fingers was some of our favorite back in the house days – and "Can You Feel It" is about as anthemic as you can get for a dancefloor tune! The cut's vocal refrain is immediately catchy, and it's chopped up and swirled around some monstrously hard beats that really kick it over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ PrinceI Would Die 4 U/Another Lonely Christmas ... 7-inch
Warner, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite tracks ever from Prince – an instantly funky, instantly catchy tune that never fails to blow us away with its dexterity! The jam sounds great, even after all these years – and it's backed by a non-LP cut, "Another Lonely Christmas" – in which Prince almost single-handedly revives the Holiday soul single tradition for the 80s generation! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Quando QuangoLove Tempo (benelux edit, mix) ... 7-inch
Factory (Belgium), 1983. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Factory Records club tracks – a percolated number that was equal parts New York and Manchester! The electro beats and slight Latin groove have a wonderful crossover downtown sound – as does the flatted sax bit that comes along with the hook – but the vocals also have a nice deadpan sound that gives the tune some nice post-punk darkness! (Rock, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Sleeve has some surface wear and lightly bent corners.)

✨✧ Jackie MittooShowcase EP ... 7-inch
VP, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Funky reggae with plenty of Hammond – the mighty Jackie Mittoo in our favorite sort of setting! The tracks here were all done in collaboration with Bunny Striker Lee – and have this stripped-down, no-nonsense approach – never too complicated in studio touches, which leaves lots of room for Jackie's great work on the keyboard! Titles include "Drum Song", "Brain Mark", "Disco Jack", and "Earthquake". (Reggae, Funky 45's) 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
