FatnicePeace Love Unity & Havin Fun (Lil' Dave Fun Size mix, Windy City mix)/My Favorite Things (Buscates Vibrate mix) ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $0.99
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

Mighty Mocambos with Afrika BambaataaHot Stuff (orig, version) ... 7-inch
Favorite (France), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
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

Alice ClarkDon't You Care/Never Did I Stop Loving You ... 7-inch
Mainstream/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
Genius soul from the amazing Alice Clark – one of our favorite female soul singers from the early 70s! Both tracks are pulled from Alice's rare album on the Mainstream label – and both of them have a really unique mix of jazz and soul in the backings, done at a level that expands out the groove wonderfully – and gives the tracks a hip, adult, really right on sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Counter PointsEarly Dawn/You've Made Me So Happy ... 7-inch
Ja-Wes, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
"Early Dawn" is an excellent lost groover! It's got a nice hard drum intro, and a sweet mellow jazz groove played by an unknown tenor player that sounds a lot like Stanley Turrentine in his very early days. The riff is totally catchy, and the cut's a wonderful little number that's way more sophisticated than your usual funk number. The single is one of our favorite funky 45s of all time, and it almost never turns up! 7-inch, Vinyl record

ExcitersBlowing Up My Mind/Turn Me On ... 7-inch
RCA/Outta Sight (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $8.99
One of our favorite songs ever from The Exciters – a massive tune that's got a lot more power and presence than their earlier hits – this monstrous groove that's definitely "Blowing Up" right from the start, with these searing vocals that really match the instrumental energy! "Turn Me On" is a bit mellower, but still grooving – and a great workout for the female lead, with an excellent deep quality to the vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Isley BrothersI Know Who You Been Socking It To/I Turned You On ... 7-inch
T Neck, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $1.99
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
(Labels have a drillhole and a peeled spot.)

Jimmy JonesAin't Nothin Wrong With Makin Love On The First Night (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Conchillo, 1976. Near Mint- ... $19.99
How many times have we said that! "Makin Love On The First Night" is a beautiful cut – southern/modern, with a sweet midtempo groove that's made the track a favorite of ours for years – the kind of non-LP smooth soul cut that shows that funk fans aren't the only ones who need to dig through singles! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have some wear.)

Gene AndersonGigolo ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... About August 1, 2015
Gene Anderson's "Gigolo" combines the hard driving, JB's Horny Horns vibe that was killing on so many pulsating dance floors at the time, with a bit more of tightly thumping soul vibe. But it still slams just as hard as our favorite, grimier funk of the period! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Marlboro Men(Ride On) Iron Horse (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Nite Beat/Funk 45 (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from the Marlboro Men – a chugging funky guitary monster, stepping out with a slow burn, and really building speed as the tune kicks in! Nice hard drums, raspy vocals, and more bass than you could catch in an entire week's worth of fishing the boundary waters! An all-time Dusty Groove favorite – back from the days when we used to sell original copies for just a few dollars each! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bobby Taylor & The VancouversDoes Your Mama Know About Me/Fading Away ... 7-inch
Gordy, 1968. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two fantastic numbers from one of our favorite 60s groups! "Does Your Mama Know" is about as great as you can get for 60s deep soul – with an anthemic hook that will send chills down your spine from the first minute you hear it! "Fading Away" is a great mellow number, too – with great vocals on the chorus! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Stunning pic sleeve version too!)
