Darrow FletcherMy Judgement Day/That Certain Little Something ... 7-inch
Groovy, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Two nice little numbers from Darrow Fletcher – a sweetly voiced singer with a slight bluesy touch, always a treat whenever we can track down his work! "My Judgement Day" has a sombre title, but it's actually a sweet little track that has a nice big city sound to it. "That Certain Little Something" is nice too – catchy, with a style that reminds us a lot of Garnet Mimms in the hook, if not the vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby AngelleIt's Just Got To Be That Way/There Goes My Baby ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $6.99
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

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

Jan BradleyBack In Circulation/Love Is The Answer ... 7-inch
Adanti, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Jan Bradley returns to wax after her big Chess hit with this single that brings her sound a bit more into the late 60's. "Love is The Answer" has a nice groovy 60's sound, with a sing-song chorus in the usual Jan Bradley vocal style. "Back In Circulation" has more of a Chicago soul 2-step groove, and also has Jan's trademark vocals. 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

Etta Jones/Lorez AlexandriaNature Boy (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A classic tune, done here in two very groovy versions! Etta Jones' take on "Nature Boy" starts out with a soulful tenor solo, then moves into this exotic stepping rhythm on guitar, bass, and drums – very spare, but very compelling – especially as Etta holds the lead! Lorez Alexandria is equally exotic on her version, but jazzier too – as the tune has this wonderful piano that really opens up the colors and tones! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Frog/Watch What Happens ... 7-inch
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A very groovy single from Sergio Mendes! "The Frog" is a gem by Joao Donato – also recorded under the name "A Sapo" – and the cut's got a jaunty little groove with a back-forth melody that's totally dreamy, and perfect for the Brasil 66 sound! "Watch What Happens" is Michel Legrand's great tune, done in a warm and wonderful style! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Guy Morris & BandHot Pants Party/Cool It ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy ... $3.99
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

Floyd SmithSoul Strut/Getting Nowhere Fast ... 7-inch
Dakar, Late 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
Nice one! "Soul Strut" is a great groovy Chicago funk track, with a tight beat and a very nice groove to it. The cut's got a great drum break at the beginning – plus rolling downbeat piano, and some great twangy guitar! Floyd does the calls over the music – in a mode that's a bit like Alvin Cash! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Leon WareThat's Why I Came To California/Rockin You Eternally ... 7-inch
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Sweet modern soul from the great Leon Ware! "That's Why I Came To California" is the kind of a cut that will have you packing your bags for the coast immediately – catchy, groovy, and produced with a sweetly soulful vibe that's all the best bits of the CA scene, rolled into one track! "Rockin You Eternally" is one of the ultimate slow jam mellow soul tracks of the early 80s – a stone cold modern soul stepper – with a great mellow souful groove, and an excellent hook that will stay with you long after the track is over! Co-written with Marcos Valle, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Forest TerrySatellite Love/Branch In Out ... 7-inch
Ocean Of Tears (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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
