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

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 ... $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

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

Joyce/Rosinha Da ValenciaAldeia De Ogum/Summertime ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the greatest tracks ever from the lovely Joyce – the legendary "Aldeia De Ogum", which features a fast-stepping bassline, cascading acoustic guitar lines, and these soaring, jazzy vocals from Joyce that are completely sublime! The track's like no other we can think of – and we've loved it for years! The flipside features a very nice version of "Summertime" by Rosinha Da Valencia – very moody, with guitar from the lady that creates all these complicated yet groovy lines amidst fuller arrangements! 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.)

Ennio MorriconeLe Casse/Rodeo (limited edition) ... 7-inch
Bell/Vadim (France), 1971. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
Ahh, we'd so love to see a bunch of killer Morricone numbers on funky 45s – but if that doesn't happen, we've got a really great one here!!! "Le Casse" is a moody bit of crime score funk, a killer beat under some harpsichord, strings and somewhat soaring atmospherics that pair so nicely with the rawer undercurrent. "Rodeo" has a more measured approach with a groovy payoff, and some sweet horns in the mix. Great stuff pulled from an early 70s film with Jean-Paul Belmondo & Omar Sharif! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Numbered limited edtion – in a great pic 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!)

Satin Chaps feat Tony Starlight/Apollo FourHey, Mrs Santa Claus!/Jupiter Jingle ... 7-inch
Satin Chaps, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... $5.99
A pair of special Christmas tunes – pressed together here on a groovy red vinyl 45! "Hey Mrs Santa Claus" is kind of a swinging number with a jazzy vibe – vocals from Tony Starlight in an old lounge singer mode, and backing from The Satin Chaps in a romping blend of guitar, horns, and even a bit of chimes! "Jupiter Jingle" is an instrumental from the Apollo Four – kind of a twangy tune with a 60s surf guitar vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Color vinyl – includes download!)

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

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
