✨✧ Mighty Mocambos with Afrika BambaataaHot Stuff (orig, version) ... 7-inch
Favorite (France), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The legendary Afrika Bambaataa joins the Mighty Mocambos – in a cut that mixes their own deep funk modes with some tasty old school touches! Bam gets in a few shouts and calls on the main cut – and the flipside features a nice vocal variation on the groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ DemandsSay It Again/Let Me Be Myself ... 7-inch
Big Crown, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99 9.98
Somebody forgot to tell the guy in the back row about the costumes for the photo shoot – but that doesn't stop "Say It Again" from being a hell of a cooker! The tune's got a mix of southern groove and sweet soul – a bit like our favorite work by The Winstons, complete with some mighty nice work on drums! "Let Me Be Myself" is moodier, with slow-tripping organ lines that really set the mood – and deep soul vocals that send the whole thing over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Red Astaire & Coco RouzierResque Me/Reaching Out To You ... 7-inch
Home Grown, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
A great couple of jazzy soul tunes – produced by diverse, longtime favorite Red Astaire (aka Freddie Crugar) – but it's also a wonderful showcase for sultry neo classic soul singer Coco Rouzier! "Resque Me" is the jazzier gem with a spare beat, moody horn and sweetly noirish vocals out front. "Reaching Out To You" is equally solid, breezier soul tune on the other side. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Carlo RustichelliL'Homme Presse (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch
Polydor (France), 1977. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $2.99
A rare EP for the film L'Homme Presse – music that has this open, floating sort of vibe – light strings, and isolated piano lines – almost at a level that's like some of our favorite French composers from the early 70s. There's some lightly classical touches, but the sound is quite contemporary overall – with a moody vibe that reminds us of some of the darker moments from Francis Lai. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Original pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

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 – and even the flipside, which is listed as "disco", still has more of a modern soul vibe than any sort of easy dancefloor track! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousMotortown Revue – The French EPs (5 x 7" single set – with bonus download) ... 7-inch
Motown (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $59.99
A very cool relic of the famous Motown tour of Paris in 1965 – a limited box set that offers up picture sleeve replicas of five rare 7" EPs! Each single has a different cover that you won't recognize from American Motown releases – very cool images and layouts that each contain four different songs – making for a package that includes 25 titles in all! Our very favorite one here is the special EP for organist Earl Van Dyle – head of The Soul Brothers at the time, stepping out on the cuts "Soul Stomp", "All For You", "Hot N Tot", and "Too Many Fish In The Sea". Other singles include The Supremes – with "I'm In Love Again" and "Rock & Roll Banjo Band"; Martha & The Vandellas with "In My Lonely Room" and "Motoring"; The Miracles with "Got A Job", and "You've Really Got A Hold On Me"; and Stevie Wonder with "Tears In Vain" and "Castles In The Sand". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Includes download!)

✨✧ Marvin GayeAfter The Dance/Feel All My Love Inside ... 7-inch
Tamla, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 of our favorite cuts by Marvin Gaye – slinky, gliding bits of mellow soul – totally haunting, and with these floating piano bits behind the vocals that are simply amazing! Gaye's always sounded great on his own, but with this Leon Ware production, he soars to the skies on a soft cloud of gentle soul! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Marvin Gaye & Tammi TerrellThe Onion Song/California Soul ... 7-inch
Tamla, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant early single from Marvin – and one of our favorite versions of this great great song! "California Soul" is one of those tunes that always seems to sound great, no matter who sings it – but here, it takes on an even great sound, as Marvin and Tammi trade vocals in a style that works perfectly with the bouncing rhythm of the groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Vinyl has numerous press flaw bumps.)

✨✧ Syl JohnsonConcrete Reservation/Together, Forever ... 7-inch
Twinight, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent Twinight material from Syl Johnson backed by Pieces Of Peace– filled with the kind of deep soul that still makes him a favorite after all these years, and with a nice dash of Chicago funk thrown into the mix! "Concrete Reservation"'s got a nice bass-y groove to it, and the kind of deep soul feel you'd expect from Syl! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Barbara LynnYou'll Lose A Good Thing/Lonely Heartache ... 7-inch
Jamie, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone burner from Barbara Lynn – beautiful from the very first note! The track moves slowly, but with a firm little step that's always made it a favorite on mellow dancefloors – and Barbara's vocals are incredibly deep throughout! "Lonely Heartache" is another great slow track – and like the first, was written by Barbara too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ RippleI Don't Know What It Is, But It Sure Is Funky/Dance Lady Dance ... 7-inch
GRC, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone funk groover! "Don't Know What It Is" is one of those tunes that goes way way back – and has been a funky favorite for years! The tune's got a monstrous intro – one that slinks across the swamp with a buckety batch of bass, then riffs into a harder groove as the killer vocals come into the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record
