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

Bama Lamas feat Gabrielle SuttonSecurity/It's Too Late ... 7-inch
Bama Lamas, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $1.99
Floorshaking sounds from Chicago's Bama Lama's with guest singer Gabrielle Sutton – paying tribute to the glorious dawn of the 60s guy/girl rocking rhythm & soul singles of Tarheel Slim & Little Ann with the songs – while paying homage to the groovy style pre-Ye Ye French rock singles with the très chic picture sleeve! "Security" is an untempo stormer and "It's Too Late" is slower cooking flipside with cool organ in the middle. The production is excellent, too, with a genuinely vintage feel!

Archie Bell & The DrellsI Can't Stop Dancing/You're Such A Beautiful Child ... 7-inch
Atlantic, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
2 stone killers from Archie Bell & The Drells – both of them in that tight and outta site groovy mode that graced their best early work for Atlantic! There's not as much hard funk here as on "Tighten Up", but the sound is somehow even richer – a swinging party kind of soul that gets you right away, and which is supported by some great horns, catchy rhythms, and wonderful raspy vocals from Archie and the group! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In an Atlantic sleeve.)

James BrownGoodbye My Love/Shades Of Brown ... 7-inch
King, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
"Goodbye My Love" is one of James' ballad soul tracks – not bad overall, sung in a deep soul style that we always like – but the reall killer is "Shades Of Brown", a very groovy organ instrumental that often gets overlooked, and which has a hard-wailing, nice vamping quality! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has some pen.)

King Curtis & The KingpinsValley Of The Dolls/8th Wonder ... 7-inch
Atco, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Forget the a-side, which is a dreamy instrumental, because the b-side's the real winner! "8th Wonder" is a nice groovy instrumental – with some hard drums at the beginning, and with King playing varitone in a nice mod fuzzed out style! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo.)

Gary McFarlandHow To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying/I Believe In You ... 7-inch
Verve, 1961. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Very swingin' instrumental version of the score to this goofy musical, arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, with a batch of players like Clark Terry, Oliver Nelson, Phil Woods, and Joe Newman – so you know the whole thing's tight and groovy. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Yellow label promo.)

Roberto Pregadio & Romano Mussolini/Anton Garcia AKriminal/Il Cobra ... 7-inch
Beat/Four Flies (Italy), 1960s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $13.99
A fantastic funky theme to the groovy film Kriminal – served up here with romping orchestrations that have the best sort of hip 60s Italian feel – mod and jerking in the groove, and with some very cool Hammond organ sounds in the middle! The flipside features "Il Cobra" – another very cool Italo-action theme – one that has a fast-strutting electric bassline at the bottom – setting a great pace for criss-crossing keyboards and a sweet tenor solo! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)

PrinceLet's Go Crazy/Erotic City ... 7-inch
Warner, 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $14.99
One of the most romping tunes ever recorded by Prince – the kind of cut that was an instant dancefloor stormer back in the day, and still sounds mighty groovy all these many years later! The single is backed by the fantastic non-LP cut "Erotic City" – a masterpice of slinky funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Sleeve has light wear.)

Redd Holt UnlimitedGimme Some Mo/Nothing From Nothing ... 7-inch
Paula, 1975. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Another nice funky groover from Redd Holt! Holt's drums ring out nice and loud on both tracks - the groovy sing-song funk number "Gimme Some Mo", and the flipside, which is a great instrumental cover of the big hit! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has some pen.)

Simtec & WylieGotta Get Over The Hump/Nine Times Out Of Ten ... 7-inch
Mister Chand, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A great groover from this hard Chisoul duo! "Gotta Get Over The Hump" is one of those cuts that seems to be just a groovy soul number – but it's also got a deep message in there somewhere, brought out by the group's full-on vocal approach! Flipside is nice, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sir GuyLet Home Cross Your Mind/I Need You Baby ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Early 70s funky soul from North Carolina singer Sir Guy – backed here by the group Raw Soul! "I Need You Baby" is a great little tune, led brilliantly by Sir Guy's regally soulful falsetto – with some groovy female back up, tightly vamping guitar, horns and heavy drums. "Let Home Cross Your Mind" is a total killer on the flip – funky, funky stuff with drums and bass that are really outta sight! 7-inch, Vinyl record

John Philip Soul & His Stone Marching BandSoul Strut/That Memphis Thing ... 7-inch
Pepper, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
What a groovy group! John Phillip has a lot of "march" in the drums on both cuts – nicely snapping to lay out the groove, working with the group in an instrumental mode that's niiiiiiice and funky! "Memphis Thing" has a great intro, and some wild bubbly organ bits! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(DJ copy.)

Sugar BillySuper Duper Love (Are You Diggin' On Me) (parts I & 2) ... 7-inch
Fast Track, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Classic soul club track, with a hard groove that has a Little Beaver guitar feel to it, and Sugar Billy's deep vocals over the top, asking the musical question in the title. Very groovy, and the album's a tough one to find! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Henry Thomas & RiseMy Dreams Are Clouded/Don't Wait Too Long ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99
A track that's a lot more upbeat and groovy than you might expect from its title – sweet 80s keyboards and beats – which really set up an excellent groove for the group's vocals! The harmonies are almost old school, but the style of the groove is sweet electro funk – which really makes for a nice blend! "Don't Wait Too Long" is more 80s too – slower-stepping, in a great way – with lots of cool keyboards! 7-inch, Vinyl record
