Kay GeesGet Down/My Favorite Song ... 7-inch
Gang, 1975. Very Good ... $0.99
A stormer! "Get Down" is a killer from the Kay Gees – a cut that begins with a Kool & The Gang type riff, and which grooves with a sweet ensemble funk sound all the way through! "My Favorite Song" is a winner too – with a similar funky feel, and a mad love-oriented monologue over the top! 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

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

SantiagoFeelin Good/Land Of Leaping No No ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A track that definitely lives up to its title – as the riffing guitar, bright horns, and upbeat vibe of the groove have us "Feelin Good" right from the very first note – then feelin even better once the lyrics and jazzy flute line come into play! There's a warmth to the cut that reminds us of some of our favorite 70s grooves from Joe Bataan – and the flipside is a funkier instrumental number with some sharp clavinet amongst the changes, and some great jazzy horns too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

SonicsPsycho/Maintaining My Cool (clear orange colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Jerden/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $9.99
A howling classic by The Sonics! "Psycho" will always be one of our favorite Sonics' tunes – a scorcher with an R&B influence – done with a maniacal proto-punk urgency. That sax honking behind those bugged-out vocals – it's absolutely essential! "Maintaining My Cool" is, well, comparably quite cool – but still with a menacing edge – particularly via the sneering, swaggery lyrics. (Rock, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Pressed on clear orange vinyl.)

Trio Mocoto/Tenorio Jr/Jorge Autouri TrioSwinga Sambaby/Nebulosa/Autorizando ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
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

Marcos ValleDemocustico/Freio Aerodinamico ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970/1972. Near Mint- ... $8.99
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

Noriel Vilela/Juca Chaves16 Toneladas/Take Me Back To Piaui ... 7-inch
Odeon/Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
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

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
(Includes download!)

✨✧ Eramus HallJust Me & You/Your Love Is My Desire ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wickedly sweet stepper from Eramus Hall – a cut that wasn't on the group's one and only album, and which may be one of our favorite as well! "Just Me & You" has this brilliant midtempo groove – with jazzy inflections in both the instrumentation and vocals, almost in the best Roy Ayers mode! "Your Love Is My Desire" is the title cut of the group's album – another sublime blend of jazz and soul! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Nico Gomez & His OrchestraAquarela/Rio ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. Used ... 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
