✨✧ Mac & PartyHarambe/Liverpool ... 7-inch
Afro 7 (Finland), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Two sweet cuts from mid 60s Mombassa – both very different, and both very groovy! "Harambe" has this vamping vibe that's topped with ultra-cool work on some unusual keyboard, which serves up a great solo over the tune's mix of riffing guitar and congas in the rhythms – as well as some especially nice plucked string instrument! "Liverpool" has English language lyrics at the start, but then leaps into this cascading cycle of rhythm that's completely mesmerizing – modal in construction, but much more unusual! 7-inch, Vinyl record

NoteablesFunky Frog/Get Ready ... 7-inch
Sound City/Tramp (Germany), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The Noteables take off here on two groovy tracks – one a pretty nice cover of Rare Earth's "Get Ready" – the other the extra nice "Funky Frog", which has the group leaping forward in a frenzy of heavy bass, heady horns, and these wicked changes that feel like they were lifted right from a James Brown funk track of the late 60s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Father Peter ScholtesMissa Bossa Nova EP ... 7-inch
FEL, 1968. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A church record, but a groovy one – featuring Peter Scholtes' "Missa Bossa Nova" – basically a recasting of traditional mass themes in a jaunty bossa nova way! The style of the record is very post-Vatican II – with Scholtes playing acoustic guitar in a folksy way, and singing in an "of the people" style that has added background chorus vocals and lots of snapping percussion to support the "bossa" mode. There's a spirit to those tunes that's almost in the Afro-Sambas mode of Baden Powell – and you can bet that if the music sounded like that, we wouldn't have stopped going to church! Bossa titles include "Glory To God", "Holy Holy", "Lamb Of God", and "They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a plain white sleeve.)

Simtec Simmons & BandComing On Strong (With It)/Computing ... 7-inch
Maurici, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $1.99
Two tight groovy instrumentals on the rare Chicago Maurici label, played by Simtec Simmons on his funky guitar, with driving backing by his band. "Coming On Strong" has perpetual choppy riffs, while "Computing" has short cutting noise from the guitar that's supposed to sound (we think) like a computer! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have a small piece of tape and initials in marker.)

Underground ResurrectionReality/Dreams ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
Fast piano, fast drums, and fast guitar all set "Reality" on fire right from the start – giving the righteous funky cut a great groove that never stops at all – while the singers in the group soar on the sound, and serve up the message of the killer cut! "Dreams" is lots more laidback, but equally groovy – with this floating piano over a nicely kicking groove – as the sweet vocals dance along with a cool moogy solo! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Luiz Carlos Vinhas/O Som De LCVTanganica (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $7.99
Two versions of "Tanganica" – a groovy Brazilian track from the end of the 60s! Luis Carlos Vinhas takes the track in a nicely jazzy mode – using wordless female vocals that drift over the top of the sweet grooves on piano and percussion – sounding a bit cool, until heavier percussion kicks things up a bit! The flipside features another group of Vinhas – who turn in the tune with a slow-stepping electric guitar, and these fantastic horn parts that build nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record
