New Darrow FletcherMy Judgement Day/The Pain Gets A Little Deeper ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Groovy, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two nice little numbers from Darrow Fletcher – a sweetly voiced singer with a slight bluesy touch, always a treat whenever we can track down his work! "My Judgement Day" has a sombre title, but it's actually a sweet little track that has a nice big city sound to it. 7-inch, Vinyl record

New William DeVaughnBe Thankful For What You Got (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Roxbury, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A classic if there ever was one – a seminal 70s soul track, covered by many, and featuring the classic line "diamond in the back/sun roof top/makin' the scene with the gangster lean." Sad thing is, everyone always thinks it's Curtis Mayfield – but it's William, and even better than Curtis! Part 2 is a nice instrumental extension of the song, with groovy guitar. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Great ReviversDrunken Master/Bottoms Up ... 7-inch 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

Duffy JacksonI Feel Good/Tamahawk ... 7-inch 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 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

Paz AntiguanaTropical Soul/First Round ... 7-inch 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!)

Tico & The TriumphsHere Come The Garbage Man/The Biggest Lie I Ever Told ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Norton, 1962. New Copy (pic cover)... $1.99
A pair of raw, though well-crafted rockers from the early 60s by Tico & The Triumphs – "Tico" actually a very young Paul Simon! "Here Comes The Garbage Man" is kind of a garage rock stab at Phil Spector-style tunecraft – and the flip "The Biggest Lie I Ever Told" is equally groovy. 7-inch, Vinyl record
