Elaine Armstrong/Betty MoorerTears Begin To Fall/Speed Up ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunner from Elaine Armstrong – a tune that's got a massive slow drum break right from the start, mixed with this haunting flute line – then offset by Elaine's raspy vocals in this fantastic way! The tune's got the same slow funk mode you'd know from "Didn't I" – but is even more powerful overall. The flipside features Betty Moorer's classic "Speed Up" – an incredibly groovy loping soul track from Chicago, with arrangements by Tom Tom and production by Bill Bunky Sheppard in keeping with his best work from the time! Betty's got a nice raw soul voice, and really belts out the groovy track – which has an excellent hook. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Scott Cunningham BandMorning Madness/Uncontrolled ... 7-inch
Black Horse/Tramp (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
A nice little cut in the Praise Poems mode – a bit jazzy, a bit funky, and with these righteous blue-eyed soul vocals from Scott Cunningham – which are punctuated by some great jazzy solos on flute and tenor sax! "Uncontrolled" is also jazzy, but in a more upbeat and groovy way – guitar wrapped around the congas in the grooves, peppered with piano notes, and a sweet chorus singing very lightly underneath Scott's lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Camille Doughty/Singing Sons Of Washington DCElijah Rock/Jesus Will Be With Me ... 7-inch
Honest Jons (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $13.99
Two sweet funky gospel tracks – both recorded in the studios of TK Records! "Elijah Rock" is a very groovy tune from Camille Doughty – almost funky southern soul in its approach, from her great lead vocals down to the instrumentation – which has a sweet Fender Rhodes line stepping along with the groove! And The Singing Sons Of Washington DC get equally soulful on "Jesus Will Be With Me" – a cut that has this monstrously dark bassline that's as seductive as the lyrics are redemptive! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jon LucienWould You Believe Me/A Sunny Day ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Two superb tracks from the great Jon Lucien – both gems from his early 70s years on RCA! "Would You Believe" may well be the closest that Jon ever came to cutting a groover – an upbeat tune with a great jazzy vibe over this quick-stepping bassline – all a perfect foil fo his really unique vocals! "A Sunny Day" is great too – fast, jazzy, and with these soaring vocals from Lucien that are as groovy as they are powerful! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Osmar Milito & Quarteto Forma/Brasil RitmoO Bofe/Cho Chua ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweet early groover from Osmar Milito – much more upbeat and swinging than his later album material – and served up with this excellent jaunty groove, and lots of very groovy harmony vocals from Quarteto Forma! The whole thing's got a very nice Blue Brazil groove – and the flipside features rootsy samba from Brasil Ritmo – who blend sweet cuica lines with lots of percussion on "Cho Chua"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

NoteablesFunky Frog/Get Ready ... 7-inch
Sound City/Tramp (Germany), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
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

Paz AntiguanaTropical Soul/First Round ... 7-inch
Holy Cane Spirit (France), 2013. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $3.99
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

Reparata & The DelronsPanic/Captain Of Your Ship ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $8.99
A great soulful cut from Reparata & The Delrons – a group who could skirt both sides of the fence with their excellent 60s style! "Panic" soars with a mix of Northern Soul groove and popcorn production – in a perfect balance between Reparata's lead and support from the group! "Captain Of Your Ship" is a bit more complicated at the start, but has a really great payoff overall – a groove that's almost more Sunshine Pop overall, with a hook that steps out wonderfully from the very groovy arrangements! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Forest TerrySatellite Love/Branch In Out ... 7-inch
Ocean Of Tears (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweet bit of spacey slow funk from Forest Terry – a tune that's weirdly tripped out, but which has this very groovy vibe too – almost "Love Jones" sort of vocals at times, but mixed with a spiritual undercurrent that has all these weird bits on guitar and piano too! "Branch In Out" continues with an even more jazzy vibe – righteous fusion with some heavy drums, mixed with ensemble vocals that almost have a mix of funk and Strata East! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Banana SplitsDoin The Banana Split/I Enjoy Being A Boy/The Beautiful Calliopa/Let Me Remember You Smiling ... 7-inch
Kellogg, Late 60s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
What a cool little single! This 4 track ep is presented by Kelloggs, the cereal company, as a tie-in with the Banana Splits TV show. It's got some really great numbers that range in style from trippy to groovy, and maybe a little bit funky. The track "Doin The Banana Split" was purportedly written by Barry White adn features a slightly funky groove, and a hip male soul vocal and heavy instrumentation. We simply cannot believe kid show music was at one point this crazy and incredible! Other cuts have a groovy sunshine pop feel – a bit off-beat, kind of trippy, and almost somewhere near Millenium or Love Generation. 7-inch, Vinyl record
