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)... $2.99
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

Linda CliffordMarch Across Land/Only Fooling Myself ... 7-inch
Paramount/Expansion (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite tracks ever from Chicago soul singer Linda Clifford – a mellow bit of funk written and produced by Leroy Hutson – and quite different than any of Linda's later clubby work! In fact, the whole thing's got a righteous, positive vibe – one that really feels almost entirely like Hutson's massive solo work on Curtom – just with Linda on vocals! Hutson produced "Only Fooling Myself" too – and the track's got a bit of a fuller vibe – with this sweet midtempo stepping groove arranged by Tom Tom Washington! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jim GilstrapSwing Your Daddy (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Roxbury, 1975. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A strange little cut – one that skips along with a "woo-wah" groove that's part old doo woppery, part pre-rollerskating, and which sounds like nothing else we can think of! The cut's always been a favorite here in Chicago with the steppers – and it's got an easy going beat that creates a lot of action on the dancefloor! 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 ... $109.99
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".

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

✨✧ Jackie LeeDuck/Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide ... 7-inch
Mirwood, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A northern soul classic! Jackie's the same guy as Earl from Bob & Earl, and combined with his excellent work in that duo, he's one heck of a big force in underground 60s soul! His hard groover "The Duck" has always been a favorite on soul dancefloors around the world! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ O'JaysChristmas Ain't Christmas New Years Ain't New Years Without The One You Love (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Philadelphia International, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The O'Jays' fantastic Christmas single – one of the best-ever holiday tunes cut during the 70s, with a great hook, a sweet feeling, and a solid sound that kept it a seasonal favorite for many many years! (Holiday Music, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ DemandsSay It Again/Let Me Be Myself ... 7-inch
Big Crown, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Raw Soul ExpressLet Go/Will You Be There ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
