Dick BoyellOuterspace Honeymoon/Kinda Groovy ... 7-inch
Nuance, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Wonderfully weird and dreamy – spacey instrumentation and vocals – almost off the Barbarella soundtrack, but goofier! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(One label has a small sticker and a bit of pen.)

✨✧ Bobby AngelleIt's Just Got To Be That Way/There Goes My Baby ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $9.99
Two nice ones from this overlooked singer! Bobby's got this slightly rough vocal approach to "It's Just Got To Be That Way" – but that's what gives the tune lots of charm, especially as a female chorus comes into support Angelle's lead over the very groovy instrumentation! The flipside's a famous tune, given a nice reworking – with a pacing and instrumentation that are different than the original, and Angelle's open, honest reading of the lyric! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Tyrone DavisTurn Back The Hands Of Time (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Dakar, 1970. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A landmark of Chicago soul! "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" was a huuuuuuge crossover track for Tyrone – and it mixed his roosty vocal style with the soaring Chisoul arrangements of Tom Tom in a very groovy way! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Labels have small stickers and pencil.)

Great ReviversDrunken Master/Bottoms Up ... 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

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

Duffy JacksonI Feel Good/Tamahawk ... 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
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

✨✧ Guy Morris & BandHot Pants Party/Cool It ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy ... $7.99
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!)

Brother Woodman & The ChantersShe Wants To Mambo/Watts ... 7-inch
Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
A great bit of Jukebox Mambo from The Chanters – a tune that has a female singer exclaiming her love of the dance – while the group harmonizes beneath, and Brother Woodman takes a great lead! The tune's got a great mix of Latin and R&B – and "Watts" is another groovy number – with a vibe that's almost late 50s Coasters! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Chicago Cubs/Clark St BandPennant Fever/Slide ... 7-inch
Chess, 1969. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A great lost single from Chess! The a-side, "Pennant Fever", features the 1969 Chicago Cubs, singing a version of "Fever" with vocals about their (soon to be aborted) run for the world series. The real treat, though, is the flipside, the instrumental "Slide", by the Chicago Cubs Clark St. Band – most likely a Chess/Cadet studio group, fronted by a hard-wailing organist. The organ player is great, and the instrumental track is a really nice groover – with great Hammond riffs and groovy guitar parts. 7-inch, Vinyl record
