✨✧ Mighty Mocambos with Afrika BambaataaHot Stuff (orig, version) ... 7-inch
Favorite (France), 2014. New Copy ... 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

James BrownThere Was A Time/I Can't Stand Myself (When You Touch Me) ... 7-inch
King, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
This is the kind of killer hard soul material that made James' late 60s years so incredible! "There Was a Time" is one of our favorite-ever tracks by him, and it's got a massive kind of soulful energy that's sometimes missing from other tracks at the time. "I Can't Stand Myself" is a winner, too, and features James wailing hard in a pure unbridled soulful moment! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nico Gomez & His OrchestraAquarela/Rio ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
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

Jive BombersBad Boy/When Your Hair Has Turned To Silver ... 7-inch
Savoy, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of our favorite doo wop tracks of all time! "Bad Boy" has this insane vocal – all bubbly and wobbly, sung by Clarence Johnson in a mode that's part R&B, part showy pop, and very cool sounding all the way through. One of those cuts that seems to come from no place – but which you'll remember for years to come! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Marlboro Men(Ride On) Iron Horse (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Nite Beat/Funk 45 (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Heavy funk from the Marlboro Men – a chugging funky guitary monster, stepping out with a slow burn, and really building speed as the tune kicks in! Nice hard drums, raspy vocals, and more bass than you could catch in an entire week's worth of fishing the boundary waters! An all-time Dusty Groove favorite – back from the days when we used to sell original copies for just a few dollars each! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Trio Mocoto/Tenorio Jr/Jorge Autouri TrioSwinga Sambaby/Nebulosa/Autorizando ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
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. New Copy ... $11.99
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

✨✧ Myron & E with The Soul InvestigatorsPot Club (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2010. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A massive groove from Myron E – one of our favorite talents in the deep funk underground! "Pot Club" has a groove as dark as its title – kind of muddy at the bottom, which makes it a perfect match for the vocals – which have these slightly spacey quality, even though they're straightly soulful overall! There's plenty of punch at the bottom, much more so than you'd expect from such a pot-infused number – and production is by D, who we think is Didier – and if so, gives this cut some of his trademark messed-up funky touches! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a Timmion sleeve.)

✨✧ Counter PointsEarly Dawn/You've Made Me So Happy ... 7-inch
Ja-Wes, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"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
