Patti DrewWorking On A Groovy Thing/Without A Doubt ... 7-inch
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Ah Patti, we love you – and here's the reason why! Many folks recorded "Working On A Groovy Thing", but only Patti could mix together the right blend of sweet production and deeper soul – taking the cut to levels we've never heard before, making us actually believe the overwrought lyric. And to prove what a deep soul singer she can be, she really goes to town on "Without A Doubt", a slower bluesy number with a sound that would make Carolyn Franklin proud! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bama Lamas feat Gabrielle SuttonSecurity/It's Too Late ... 7-inch
Bama Lamas, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $5.99
Floorshaking sounds from Chicago's Bama Lama's with guest singer Gabrielle Sutton – paying tribute to the glorious dawn of the 60s guy/girl rocking rhythm & soul singles of Tarheel Slim & Little Ann with the songs – while paying homage to the groovy style pre-Ye Ye French rock singles with the très chic picture sleeve! "Security" is an untempo stormer and "It's Too Late" is slower cooking flipside with cool organ in the middle. The production is excellent, too, with a genuinely vintage feel!

Date, 1968. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Bobby's take on "Mister Bo Jangles" was the intended hit – but we love "Bus 22 To Bethlehem", which is a very groovy late 60s Christmas tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(One label has a small sticker.)

King Curtis & The KingpinsValley Of The Dolls/8th Wonder ... 7-inch
Atco, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Forget the a-side, which is a dreamy instrumental, because the b-side's the real winner! "8th Wonder" is a nice groovy instrumental – with some hard drums at the beginning, and with King playing varitone in a nice mod fuzzed out style! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Roberto Pregadio & Romano Mussolini/Anton Garcia AKriminal/Il Cobra ... 7-inch
Beat/Four Flies (Italy), 1960s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $19.99
A fantastic funky theme to the groovy film Kriminal – served up here with romping orchestrations that have the best sort of hip 60s Italian feel – mod and jerking in the groove, and with some very cool Hammond organ sounds in the middle! The flipside features "Il Cobra" – another very cool Italo-action theme – one that has a fast-strutting electric bassline at the bottom – setting a great pace for criss-crossing keyboards and a sweet tenor solo! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)

Father Peter ScholtesMissa Bossa Nova EP ... 7-inch
FEL, 1968. Near Mint- ... $0.99
A church record, but a groovy one – featuring Peter Scholtes' "Missa Bossa Nova" – basically a recasting of traditional mass themes in a jaunty bossa nova way! The style of the record is very post-Vatican II – with Scholtes playing acoustic guitar in a folksy way, and singing in an "of the people" style that has added background chorus vocals and lots of snapping percussion to support the "bossa" mode. There's a spirit to those tunes that's almost in the Afro-Sambas mode of Baden Powell – and you can bet that if the music sounded like that, we wouldn't have stopped going to church! Bossa titles include "Glory To God", "Holy Holy", "Lamb Of God", and "They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a plain white sleeve.)

Sir GuyLet Home Cross Your Mind/I Need You Baby ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Early 70s funky soul from North Carolina singer Sir Guy – backed here by the group Raw Soul! "I Need You Baby" is a great little tune, led brilliantly by Sir Guy's regally soulful falsetto – with some groovy female back up, tightly vamping guitar, horns and heavy drums. "Let Home Cross Your Mind" is a total killer on the flip – funky, funky stuff with drums and bass that are really outta sight! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soulful StringsStepper/Dock Of The Bay ... 7-inch
Cadet, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A nice groovy one from Richard Evans' Soulful Strings outifit! "The Stepper" has that tight short jazzy stepping groove that's still quite big in Chicago, with tightly plucked strings keeping the beat along with Richard's soulful bass! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has a sticker.)

Henry Thomas & RiseMy Dreams Are Clouded/Don't Wait Too Long ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A track that's a lot more upbeat and groovy than you might expect from its title – sweet 80s keyboards and beats – which really set up an excellent groove for the group's vocals! The harmonies are almost old school, but the style of the groove is sweet electro funk – which really makes for a nice blend! "Don't Wait Too Long" is more 80s too – slower-stepping, in a great way – with lots of cool keyboards! 7-inch, Vinyl record
