Patti DrewWorking On A Groovy Thing/Without A Doubt ... 7-inch
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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

Camille BobStop/I Got Loaded ... 7-inch
Rocafort (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Raw soul from Camille Bob – a singer who only cut a handful of tunes, all of them great! "Stop" has these wicked vocals right up front in the mix – almost as if Camille is trying to blow the needles way into the red – rising high above the fierce funky guitar and bold horns in the groove! "I Got Loaded" is nice and groovy – with this quick-stepping bassline and a groove that's almost a mix of R&B and soul – as Bob's vocals tell this tale of getting loaded on a bottle of gin! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bombay RoyaleWild Stallion Mountain/Khubsoorat Bewafa (colored vinyl pressing – with download) ... 7-inch
Hope Street (Australia), 2015. New Copy ... $5.99
A nice blend of spacey disco, funk and Bollywood soundtrack grooves from Bombay Royale! "Wild Stallion Mountain" wouldn't be out of place of a late 70s or early 80s Bollywood action soundtrack, but in a playful way, feels right at home now – complete with groovy female lead and male backing vocals, and endearingly silly sound effects! "Khubsoorat Bewafa" has male lead vocals, a little bit of sitar, and a nice bass groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dakar, 1970. Very Good ... $4.99
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

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! "I Keep Coming Back" is an excellent lost weeper, with a deep deep soul sound that's really great, augmented by some nice bubbling under organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Camille Doughty/Singing Sons Of Washington DCElijah Rock/Jesus Will Be With Me ... 7-inch
Honest Jons (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $13.99
Two sweet funky gospel tracks – both recorded in the studios of TK Records! "Elijah Rock" is a very groovy tune from Camille Doughty – almost funky southern soul in its approach, from her great lead vocals down to the instrumentation – which has a sweet Fender Rhodes line stepping along with the groove! And The Singing Sons Of Washington DC get equally soulful on "Jesus Will Be With Me" – a cut that has this monstrously dark bassline that's as seductive as the lyrics are redemptive! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Carl Henry Hall/Jimmy RandolphSummertime (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $6.99
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

Etta Jones/Lorez AlexandriaNature Boy (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $6.99
A classic tune, done here in two very groovy versions! Etta Jones' take on "Nature Boy" starts out with a soulful tenor solo, then moves into this exotic stepping rhythm on guitar, bass, and drums – very spare, but very compelling – especially as Etta holds the lead! Lorez Alexandria is equally exotic on her version, but jazzier too – as the tune has this wonderful piano that really opens up the colors and tones! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jon LucienWould You Believe Me/A Sunny Day ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Two superb tracks from the great Jon Lucien – both gems from his early 70s years on RCA! "Would You Believe" may well be the closest that Jon ever came to cutting a groover – an upbeat tune with a great jazzy vibe over this quick-stepping bassline – all a perfect foil fo his really unique vocals! "A Sunny Day" is great too – fast, jazzy, and with these soaring vocals from Lucien that are as groovy as they are powerful! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Herbie MannHold On, I'm Comin' (7 inch jukebox EP) ... 7-inch
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $7.99
Great early 70s work from Herbie Mann! By this point in his career, Herbie must have had a fleet of cars, a harem of ladies, and a golden flute. You can hear his success in the live material that makes up the album – recorded before very enthusiastic audiences at the New York and Montreux festivals in 1972. Who'd have thought jazz flute could go so far? All tracks are long and pretty darn lively – and Herbie's group still includes Sonny Sharrock on guitar, plus the groovy Pat Rebillot on piano, and David Newman on tenor and 2nd flute. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Nice cardboard cover, and with jukebox title cards too.)

Osmar Milito & Quarteto Forma/Brasil RitmoO Bofe/Cho Chua ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweet early groover from Osmar Milito – much more upbeat and swinging than his later album material – and served up with this excellent jaunty groove, and lots of very groovy harmony vocals from Quarteto Forma! The whole thing's got a very nice Blue Brazil groove – and the flipside features rootsy samba from Brasil Ritmo – who blend sweet cuica lines with lots of percussion on "Cho Chua"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Forest TerrySatellite Love/Branch In Out ... 7-inch
Ocean Of Tears (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweet bit of spacey slow funk from Forest Terry – a tune that's weirdly tripped out, but which has this very groovy vibe too – almost "Love Jones" sort of vocals at times, but mixed with a spiritual undercurrent that has all these weird bits on guitar and piano too! "Branch In Out" continues with an even more jazzy vibe – righteous fusion with some heavy drums, mixed with ensemble vocals that almost have a mix of funk and Strata East! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Leon WareThat's Why I Came To California/Rockin You Eternally ... 7-inch
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Sweet modern soul from the great Leon Ware! "That's Why I Came To California" is the kind of a cut that will have you packing your bags for the coast immediately – catchy, groovy, and produced with a sweetly soulful vibe that's all the best bits of the CA scene, rolled into one track! "Rockin You Eternally" is one of the ultimate slow jam mellow soul tracks of the early 80s – a stone cold modern soul stepper – with a great mellow souful groove, and an excellent hook that will stay with you long after the track is over! Co-written with Marcos Valle, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousIf A Song Could Be Freedom (Organized Sounds Of Resistance) – Five Political & Social Movement Songs ... 7-inch
Interference Archive, Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
A totally cool little package – one that brings together a number of different songs originally recorded as acts of political resistance – most of which are groovy enough to stand on their own long after the message has come across! Our favorite here is a remake of the Rare Earth tune "Get Ready" – performed as a nice funky cut with plenty of soul by The Progressive Labor Party, who turn the lyrics to support the workers! Other numbers are more folksy, but still pretty nice – and include a Kurdistan field recording of "The Inernationale", plus "Bambini Pianificati" by Gruppo Musicale Del Comitato, "Pfumo Nya Ku Pele" by Coral Das Forcas Populares De Libertacao De Mocambique, and the North Carolina textile tune "We Got A Union In The Country" by the Mountain Musicians' Cooperative. Comes with a huge booklet of notes and images, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited numbered edition of 600 copies – with heavy book too!)

Toni Tornado/Som TresO Jornaleiro/Homenagem a Mongo ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Wicked funk from the great Toni Tornado – hitting hard here on "O Jornaleiro", a cut that's got plenty of James Brown touches on the bottom – but lots of weird elements on the top! There's a screamed vocal that may not be Tornado – which peppers the track between Toni's own vocals – and horn parts get all groovy in a Blue Brazil way over the top! Som Tres pay tribute to Mongo Santamaria on the flipside – with a tune that's almost a Brazilian take on Latin Soul modes of the late 60s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Elaine Armstrong/Betty MoorerTears Begin To Fall/Speed Up ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner from Elaine Armstrong – a tune that's got a massive slow drum break right from the start, mixed with this haunting flute line – then offset by Elaine's raspy vocals in this fantastic way! The tune's got the same slow funk mode you'd know from "Didn't I" – but is even more powerful overall. The flipside features Betty Moorer's classic "Speed Up" – an incredibly groovy loping soul track from Chicago, with arrangements by Tom Tom and production by Bill Bunky Sheppard in keeping with his best work from the time! Betty's got a nice raw soul voice, and really belts out the groovy track – which has an excellent hook. 7-inch, Vinyl record
