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. Very Good- ... $3.99
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

✨✧ 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

Johnny StarkWho Do You Love/Forever (Disco) ... 7-inch
TNT/Tramp (Germany), 1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

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

Stevie WonderFor Once In My Life/Angie Girl ... 7-inch
Motown, 1968. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The a-side is the hit – but "Angie Girl" may well be one of our favorite Stevie Wonder songs from the 60s! Nicely moody, with an odd rhythmic vibe and a great hook! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(One label has a very light name in pen.)

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsMy Balloon's Going Up/Giving Up Dancing ... 7-inch
Atlantic, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not hard and funky, but a nice bit of Philly soul, done by the boys from Texas. "My Baloon's Going Up" is amazing – with soaring harmonies, nice vibes, and a great great hook that you'll remember long after the track is over. Great stuff, and one of our favorite records ever by them! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In an Atlantic sleeve.)
