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

David BowieSpace Oddity/Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud ... 7-inch
Mercury, 1969. Very Good- ... $6.99
About as classic as you can get for the young David Bowie – his famous "Major Tom" tune that was surprisingly well-timed with the first US moon landing! The track is still incredible after all these years – and is presented here on the original UK single edit, on a very groovy pic disc with a great image on the front. And on the flipside is another great picture of Bowie, along with "Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud" – one of our favorite Bowie tunes ever! (Rock, Funky 45's) 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)... $11.99
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

Eddie FisherThird Cup (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Cadet, 1969. Very Good- ... $8.99
A great single by this lost St. Louis guitar player! "The Third Cup" is a legendary classic in Chicago – and it's got this amazingly slow, amazingly dope groove that's always been a favorite with the jazz steppers. The cut is incredibly subtle, but it's one that no Chitown DJ would ever be without! Translates nicely to the rest of the world, too. 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 ... $9.99
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

New BirthWildflower/Got To Get A Knutt ... 7-inch
RCA, 1974. Very Good- ... $3.99
"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

Sha La DasSha La Da Da (Christmas Time)/I Wish Christmas Time Was Over ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2014. New Copy ... $4.99
A heavenly harmony Holiday cut – sung here by the Sha La Das, who've got a sound that takes us back to our favorite group soul cuts of the late 60s – especially the mellow, moody, late nite variety! "Sha La Da Da (Christmas Time)" has a really blue feel, and almost a Moments/Whatnauts sort of vibe – and "I Wish Christmas Time Was Over" has a similar sense of sadness, but a style that's a bit more early 60s overall. (Holiday Music, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

Trio Mocoto/Tenorio Jr/Jorge Autouri TrioSwinga Sambaby/Nebulosa/Autorizando ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A trio of tracks here – all of them great! Trio Mocoto harmonize in a great way over funky samba rhythms cut through with some sweet Fender Rhodes lines – all to serve up their classic cut "Swinga Sambaby"! "Nebulosa" is one of our favorite bossa piano tracks of all time – with this incredibly deft work from pianist Tenorio Jr, over a groove that you'll never forget! And there's lots more bossa piano on "Autorizando" from Jorge Autuori – a fast-snapping groover that's mighty nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Noriel Vilela/Juca Chaves16 Toneladas/Take Me Back To Piaui ... 7-inch
Odeon/Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the coolest, grooviest, funkiest takes on "16 Tons" you'll ever heard – done by Noriel Vilela with a great quirky vocal, in a style made famous by a recent Heineken commercial! "Take Me Back To Piaui" is one of our favorite funky samba tunes ever – a snapping, sing-song groove that captivates us right from the start – then comes through with this massively strong hook! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousChess Northern Soul Vol 2 (7 x 7 inch single box set – with download) ... 7-inch
Chess/Universal (UK), 1960s. New Copy 7 x 7 Inch ... $94.99
Socking soul from the legendary Chess Records – presented in a format that always served the label best! This very limited box features seven 45s – each of which contains two great grooves from Chess – the kind of upbeat, uptempo soul that made the Chicago scene of the 60s second only to Detroit for groovers this great! Yet we almost like this material even better than the sounds of Motown – as Chess always had something interesting going on – some compelling arrangements, unusual touches, and a range of influences that really show up on the music within – a range of cuts that include some of our favorite 45s from the legendary label. Titles include "A Whole New Plan" by Jo Ann Garrett, "A Love Reputation" by Denise LaSalle, "My Square" by Jackie Ross, "You Got Me Baby" by Bobby McClure, "You Were Just Foolin Me" by Terry Callier, "Make It Last" by The Vibrations, "Two In The Morning" by Spooner's Crowd, "More Love That's What We Need" by The Gospel Classics, "Head Over Heels" by Greg Perry, "A Mighty Good Lover" by The Vashonettes, "Wade In The Water" by Marlena Shaw, "Must I Holler" by Jamo Thomas, and "Why Can't I Be Your Man" by The Chessmen. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousMotortown Revue – The French EPs (5 x 7" single set – with bonus download) ... 7-inch
Motown (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $83.99
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
