FatnicePeace Love Unity & Havin Fun (Lil' Dave Fun Size mix, Windy City mix)/My Favorite Things (Buscates Vibrate mix) ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2014. Sealed (pic cover)... $4.99
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness the Lil Dave mix is missing – and the flipside features Fatnice's own take on the concept of "Favorite Things" – served up with this true school vibe that should make him huge, if the world has any sense of justice! 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

Isley BrothersI Know Who You Been Socking It To/I Turned You On ... 7-inch
T Neck, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The a-side's a familiar classic, but the b-side's our real favorite! "I Turned You On" has a nice slow sexy groove, with the kind of hook and power that made the Isleys so great in the early 70s! Wonderful stuff – and not easy to find on vinyl! 7-inch, Vinyl record

9th CreationFalling In Love/Sexy Girl ... 7-inch
Pye, 1975. Near Mint- ... $9.99
2 nice mellow cuts by 9th Creation – very different than their funk work, but still pretty great! "Sexy Girl" is our favorite here – as the tune's got a warm harmony sound, a nice jaunty groove, and a hook that keeps on going long over the cut's gone. A great east coast-y number – produced really nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Raw Soul ExpressLet Go/Will You Be There ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
Two fantastic tracks from one of our favorite funk groups of the 70s! "Let Go" has a wonderfully straightforward groove – tightly punctuated by razor-sharp instrumentation, while the vocals soar out in so many different directions – all with the upbeat vibe you'd know from the group's other music! "Will You Be There" begins in a much more laidback way – with a guitar solo at the start – but as the tune slow burns its way along, it really picks up some wonderful mellow soul power! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sha La DasSha La Da Da (Christmas Time)/I Wish Christmas Time Was Over ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2014. New Copy ... $4.99
A heavenly harmony Holiday cut – sung here by the Sha La Das, who've got a sound that takes us back to our favorite group soul cuts of the late 60s – especially the mellow, moody, late nite variety! "Sha La Da Da (Christmas Time)" has a really blue feel, and almost a Moments/Whatnauts sort of vibe – and "I Wish Christmas Time Was Over" has a similar sense of sadness, but a style that's a bit more early 60s overall.

Soul ChildrenI'll Be The Other Woman/Come Back Kind Of Love ... 7-inch
Stax, 1973. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Classic southern soul – and one of our favorite tracks ever by the Soul Children! "I'll Be The Other Woman" is not only one of the best-ever songs by this great Memphis group, but it's also one of the best songs about cheatin' and foolin' around to ever come out of the south! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Marcos Valle/Don BetoA Paraiba Nao E Chicago/Nao Quero Mais ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1978/1981. New Copy ... $12.99
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

✨✧ Johnny BristolDo It To My Mind/Love To Have A Chance To Taste The Wine ... 7-inch
Atlantic, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime mellow soul from Johnny Bristol! "Do It To My Mind" is a warm and wonderful number – one that begins with a smooth intro that mixes strings and rhythm, which then rolls into an incredibly catchy vocal – one of Johnny's best on record, and right up there with our favorite mellow soul tunes of the 70s! 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

✨✧ Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of FriendsSuburbia Suite Presents Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends (9 x 7 inch single box set) ... 7-inch
A&M/Universal (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy 9 x 7 inch ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to some of our favorite music of the 60s – the legendary run of A&M sides by the great Roger Nichols! The sounds here are landmark 60s pop that we'd easily rank with the best work by Brian Wilson, Millennium, Gary Usher, Van Dyke Parks, or any of those other California sunny-eyed hipsters – done in the best A&M Records mode of the time, with an emphasis on groovy harmonies in a male/female style that reminds us of We Five or The Free Design – but a lot hipper too, as its more adult in its themes – with this way of bringing innocence into play with mature thoughtfulness, but in subtle modes that are perfect for the unique album's placement on A&M! Nichols would later be known for his songwriting with Paul Williams, and was also part of a core group of underground LA pop luminaries that included the whole Warner crew under Lenny Waronker – and this material definitely has some of the sly undertones of some of the hippest late 60s Warner work as well. The package features nine 7" single replicas of Roger's work for A&M – all mono, some issued under the Small Circle Of Friends, some as the Roger Nichols Trio – a few as replicas of promo-only 45s. The whole thing comes with original label and sleeve styles, wrapped in a special box with a groovy booklet with notes in Japanese. Titles include "Love Song Love Song", "Snow Queen", "Don't Go Breaking My Heart", "Our Day Will Come", "Kinda Wasted Without You", "Didn't Want To Have To Do It", "Just Beyond Your Smile", "I'll Be Back", "Let's Ride", "Love So Fine", "With A Little Help From My Friends", "The Drifter", "Trust", and "Cocoanut Grove".

✨✧ PrinceI Would Die 4 U/Another Lonely Christmas ... 7-inch
Warner, 1984. Used (pic cover)... 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
(Sleeve has light wear.)
