✨✧ Pee Pee Dynamite/BB BoogalooGroovy Christmas & New Year/Soul Of Christmas ... 7-inch
Academy, 1970s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Whoa. . .a seasonal treasure from the 70s Ghanaian funky soul scene! This incredible 45 from Academy digs up an uber-rare Afro Soul Christmas 7-inch – featuring early productions by Kwadwo Donkoh and lead vocals by Pee Pee Dynamite on "Groovy Christmas & New Years" and BB Boogaloo on "Soul Of Christmas" – both tracks played by a group led by El Gran Koffie. "Groovy Christmas & New Years" is the powerhouse number – with riveting drums & percussion, a thick layer of organ and tight bass groove – with feverishly soulful, JB inspired vocals out front. An absolute stunner! "Soul Of Christmas" slows things down a bit, but it's ultimately nearly as strong as the other side – with organ and hand percussion leading the instrumentation and with some gruff, but sweet soul vocals. (Holiday Music, Funky 45's) 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!

ClaudiaDeixa O Morro Cantar/Mas Que Nada ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1965/1971. New Copy ... $9.99
The lovely Claudia serves up to very groovy numbers here! "Deixa O Morro Cantar" has this soaring mix of samba rhythms and horns – and is topped by Claudia's bold lead – in a style that's nicely different than some of the softer female bossa singers of her scene, and which is nicely peppered by these cool piano and horn parts in the groove! "Mas Que Nada" is a great female take on the Jorge Ben hit – one with a cool flute line wrapped up in the rhythms, and Claudia singing with another singer in a nicely spacious style! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Pawn Shop SoulTrinidad/Grab Some Thing ... 7-inch
Lugnut Brand, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99
Nothing Pawn Shop about this groovy little single – as "Trinidad" has this great chunky Latin funk groove – and features a wicked trumpet solo in the middle! The whole thing's tight and very well-produced – with burning organ in the background, and almost a late 60s vibe. "Grab Some Thing" is maybe a bit more straightforward funk – nicely done, with a Memphis current in the groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Prophets Of PeaceGet It On/You Can Be ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Rare funk by this upper Midwest combo – two tracks never issued back in the day! "Get It On" has this very groovy vibe – funky, but round and warm too – with these vocals from the groove that feel as collaborative as their superb instrumentation! "You Can Be" is funky too, but maybe with more of a southern soul tinge – both in the horns and the building nature of the rhythms – a quality that seems to be reflected in the deep soul vocals, which are traded nicely between a male and female singer! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

Young SenatorsJungle/That's The Way It Is ... 7-inch
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Badass funk from The Young Senators – a group who are a lot more groovy than their counterparts in Washington, DC – as you'll hear by the sweet heavy sound they bring to "The Jungle"! The cut's a riffing funky monster right from the start – tight horns, fast guitar, and some great congas at the bottom – and the flipside features "That's The Way It Is" – a tune that has a funky current, but some nice moody harmonies on the chorus too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
