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

Carl Davis & The Chi-Sound OrchestraWindy City Theme/Show Me The Way To Love ... 7-inch
Chi Sound, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
A classic groover from Chicago! "Windy City Theme" is the mostly instrumental backing to the first cut on the only album by the group Windy City (how's that for confusing?) – a massive groover with instrumentation by Carl Davis, high-stepping in a clubby style, but with jazzy and soulful touches that have made the track a favorite of ours for years! "Show Me The Way To Love" is another gem, with great use of strings and some romantic yearning in the vocals that are sweet as can be! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rozetta JohnsonI've Come Too Far With You/Who You Gonna Love (Your Woman Or Your Wife) ... 7-inch
Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $4.99
Wonderful work here from Rozetta Johnson – an overlooked talent from the southern soul scene of the early 70s – stepping out here on two great cuts penned by Sam Dees! "I've Come Too Far With You" is nice and raw – with piano lines that pound with as much intensity as Johnson's hard-burning vocals – backed by one of Sam's greatest tunes ever, sung here in a stunning way by Rozetta! "Who You Gonna Love" is one of our favorite southern soul tunes ever – and it's never sounded better than here in Johnson's hands! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jimmy JonesAin't Nothin Wrong With Makin Love On The First Night/Time & Changes ... 7-inch
Conchillo, 1976. Very Good ... $6.99
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! "Time & Changes" is a tight bit of funk, too – so the single's also got that going for it! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has some pen.)

Carlo RustichelliL'Homme Presse (7 inch EP) ... 7-inch
Polydor (France), 1977. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $6.99
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

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireBrazilian Rhyme (unreleased extended version)/My Love ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Earth Wind & Fire tracks ever – offered up here in a very cool extended version that only makes for an even greater groove! The album version of the tune has a vocal part that was sampled famously by Tribe Called Quest – but this take unlocks the full jazzy power of the track – with a soaring power that's wonderful! The flipside features "My Love", another great EWF cut – a sharp stepper with a wickedly jazzy groove – and fantastic vocal interplay that really sends the tune to the heavens! 7-inch, Vinyl record
