✨✧ 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)... Out Of Stock
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 ... 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

Counter PointsEarly Dawn/You've Made Me So Happy ... 7-inch
Ja-Wes, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
"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

✨✧ New BirthWildflower/Got To Get A Knutt ... 7-inch
RCA, 1974. Very Good ... $6.99
"Wildflower" was the hit, a sweet mellow ballad that's pretty nice – but the stone DGA favorite here is "Got To Get A Knutt", a really hard grooving funky romp, one that shows the group's connection to the Nite Liters! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby Taylor & The VancouversDoes Your Mama Know About Me/Fading Away ... 7-inch
Gordy, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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

✨✧ James BrownGittin' A Little Hipper (part 2)/Let A Man Come In And Do The Popcorn (part 2) ... 7-inch
King, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Part two's of two great James Brown tracks! "Gittin' A Little Hipper" is one of our favorite instrumentals from JB late 60's period, and it's got a great rolling groove to it, with a very tasty sax solo by Pee Wee! "Let A Man Come In" is a real stormer from James, and one that you don't see on wax that much. Plus, it's another part 2 – with a rolling open ended groove, and lots of shouting by James! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Gene ChandlerSimply Call It Love/Give Me A Chance ... 7-inch
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real killer from Gene Chandler – one of our favorite tracks by him ever! "Simply Call it Love" is completely sublime – soaring to the skies on wings of classic late 60s Chi-soul production – but also featuring this weird back/forth kind of rhythm that really gives the tune a bit of an edge. Gene's vocals are incredible too – playing the tune with just the right edge to make the weird approach work beautifully! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Nico Gomez & His OrchestraAquarela/Rio ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite tracks ever from the great Nico Gomez – a tune that begins with pounding piano in a bossa-styled groove, then features female chorus vocals rising with the rhythms – all with a warm style that's really wonderful throughout! "Rio" is great too – equally funky, with a strong mix of piano and percussion in subtle drama and a straightforward groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Leroy HutsonI Think I'm Falling In Love/Love To Hold You Close ... 7-inch
Curtom/Athens Of The North (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure mellow soul genius from Leroy Hutson – one of the first tracks we ever heard from him, and a cut that hooked us immediately! "I Think I'm Falling" is awash in jazzy changes – as the drums snap, strings soar, and a warm flute line skips alongside the lyrics – making the whole thing as full, warm, and loving as Leroy's sweet lyrics – and giving the cut a sound that nobody else could ever match! "Love To Hold You Close" is killer too – maybe one of our favorite Hutson numbers ever – funky, but sweetly soulful too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Marcos ValleDemocustico/Freio Aerodinamico ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970/1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two of our favorite tracks ever from the legendary Marcos Valle – both from a time when he was really opening up his groove! "Democustico" has these soaring rhythms that are then topped by a sweet flute line that aims for the sky – undercut by funky bass and guitar, and with this weird spoken vocal in the middle! "Freio Aerodinamico" is a cool cut with all the dynamic energy promised in the title – piano at the start, more soaring rhythms, and vocals that bounce back and forth beautifully along with 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 ... Out Of Stock
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
