AurraAre You Fooling Around (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Family Groove, Mid 80s. New Copy ... $6.99
An unreleased gem from Aurra – served up with all the tight, groovy sound that made that duo so great! The basslines are right up front in the mix – snapping along with excellent keyboards – and the trademark mix of female and male vocals from the duo really make the lyrics shine! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bombay RoyaleWild Stallion Mountain/Khubsoorat Bewafa (colored vinyl pressing – with download) ... 7-inch
Hope Street (Australia), 2015. New Copy ... $8.99
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
(Includes download code.)

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

Etta Jones/Lorez AlexandriaNature Boy (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Mellow Mellow Right On (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweet special clear vinyl single – featuring Leo Sunshipp's dancefloor anthem "Give Me The Sunshine" – and the equally groovy "Love Is Trying To Get A Hold On Me" by Tavasco! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Love Childs Latin Soul & Afro Blues BandCome Together (double a-side promo) ... 7-inch
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A great single recorded by this poppy Latiny instrumental combo – and one with a much more solid sound than their later disco records! It's got a nice groovy A&M feel, with a good rumbling sound to it, and nice pinched reed solos giving it a real edge! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in an A&M sleeve.)

Guy Morris & BandHot Pants Party/Cool It ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy ... $3.99
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!)

Toni Tornado/Som TresO Jornaleiro/Homenagem a Mongo ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
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

✨✧ Leon WareThat's Why I Came To California/Rockin You Eternally ... 7-inch
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Elza Soares/ElizabethMas Que Nada/Vou Falar-Lhe Francamente ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from samba soul genius Elza Soares! "Mas Que Nada" is one of Elza's greatest tunes ever – a fierce remake of the Jorge Ben hit, done with some soaring, jazzy backings, and served up in a delightful way that's made the track a jazz dance classic for years! Elizabeth doesn't have any last name on the flipside – but don't hold that against her, as she's more than groovy enough on "Vou Valar-Lhe Francamente" – a tune that's almost got some more complicated, French-style rhythms in a late 60s mode – but which definitely hits a Brazilian vibe with her vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
