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

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

Leo's Sunshipp/TavascoGive Me The Sunshine/Love Is Trying To Get A Hold On Me (clear vinyl) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Mellow Mellow Right On (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweet special clear vinyl single – featuring Leo Sunshipp's dancefloor anthem "Give Me The Sunshine" – and the equally groovy "Love Is Trying To Get A Hold On Me" by Tavasco! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Frog/Watch What Happens ... 7-inch
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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 ... $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!)
