Bobby AngelleIt's Just Got To Be That Way/There Goes My Baby ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $9.99
Two nice ones from this overlooked singer! Bobby's got this slightly rough vocal approach to "It's Just Got To Be That Way" – but that's what gives the tune lots of charm, especially as a female chorus comes into support Angelle's lead over the very groovy instrumentation! The flipside's a famous tune, given a nice reworking – with a pacing and instrumentation that are different than the original, and Angelle's open, honest reading of the lyric! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tyrone DavisTurn Back The Hands Of Time (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Dakar, 1970. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A landmark of Chicago soul! "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" was a huuuuuuge crossover track for Tyrone – and it mixed his roosty vocal style with the soaring Chisoul arrangements of Tom Tom in a very groovy way! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Labels have small stickers and pencil.)

Great ReviversDrunken Master/Bottoms Up ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
Nothing drunken here – as the drums are tight, sober, and right on the money – snapping underneath a fast-vamping guitar line before a heavy Hammond comes into the mix and cooks things up with a very groovy solo! "Bottoms Up" has a heavy break at the beginning – really old school in sound and style – then a leap into a boldly dipping bassline that runs up and down the scale while guitars pluck away a twangy tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Carl Henry Hall/Jimmy RandolphSummertime (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
Two versions of the classic "Summertime" – both pretty darn groovy! Carl Henry Hall takes the tune with this sweet vamping vibe – almost funky overall, with a modal element that's great – and topped by his own searing, searching vocals! The pace is slower on Jimmy Randolph's version, but equally vamping – although in a way that's more jazzy than soul! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Duffy JacksonI Feel Good/Tamahawk ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
Rare jazz funk from drummery Duffy Jackson! "I Feel Good" is a big band take on the JB classic – credited to The Duffy Jackson Orchestra – but the combo wisely keeps it a bit loose and genuinely funky. Nice gritty vocals by Johnny Apollo. "Tamahawk" is another funk jazz scorcher – this one really nice and loose – with room for Apollo to improvise a bit on the vocals and for the band to really get into it. Really groovy stuff – you gotta love it when a band billed as an orchestra loosens up their collars and get good and funky! 7-inch, Vinyl record

JadeSiesta Is Over/Viva Tirado ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Rare late 70s Latin soul from Jade! "The Siesta Is Over" is a killer mix of styles – anchored strongly by funk, thanks of the limber bass line, JBs-inspired horns, raw drums and organ – but it's got a sunny vibe, too, thanks the groovy male and female harmony vocals. The flip is a nice cover of "Viva Tirado" – which is probably best known for El Chicano's version – and Jade does it justice, again with the groovy organ, and solid vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Frog/Watch What Happens ... 7-inch
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A very groovy single from Sergio Mendes! "The Frog" is a gem by Joao Donato – also recorded under the name "A Sapo" – and the cut's got a jaunty little groove with a back-forth melody that's totally dreamy, and perfect for the Brasil 66 sound! "Watch What Happens" is Michel Legrand's great tune, done in a warm and wonderful style! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has a sticker.)

Guy Morris & BandHot Pants Party/Cool It ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy ... $7.99
A heck of a great little party – even without the Hot Pants! Guy Morris grooves it here in a stone James Brown mode – socking with the bass on the beats, and really going for a heavy sound overall. The tune's incredibly catchy – somewhere between sock boogaloo soul and deeper funk – and Guy's warmer vocals over the top give the tune a unique feel of its own! "Cool It" follows in a similar heavy groove – lots of horns blasting out the theme while funky guitars riff and scratch underneath. Guy sits out the vocals on this one – letting the instruments take the tune to some really groovy places! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Paz AntiguanaTropical Soul/First Round ... 7-inch
Holy Cane Spirit (France), 2013. New Copy (pic cover)... $2.99
A groovy take on Latin Soul from this ultra-chic French combo! "Tropical Soul" bubbles along with soulful trombone in the lead, and this cool piano line dancing over percussion – while two female singers work together to create a very sunny vibe on the lyrics! "First Round" is jazzier, with great sounds from the twin trombones – and a piano part that really takes off once things get going! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited/numbered edition of 100 copies!)

Rufus Thomas6-3-8/Love Trap ... 7-inch
Stax, 1972. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Two nice ones from Rufus! "6-3-8" is a great little track – not as well known as most by him, but a groovy little song about playing the numbers! "Love Trap" is less great lyrically, but it begins with a cool drum/horn/bass/organ beat that goes on for quite a bit. 7-inch, Vinyl record
