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

Archie Bell & The DrellsI Can't Stop Dancing/You're Such A Beautiful Child ... 7-inch
Atlantic, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
2 stone killers from Archie Bell & The Drells – both of them in that tight and outta site groovy mode that graced their best early work for Atlantic! There's not as much hard funk here as on "Tighten Up", but the sound is somehow even richer – a swinging party kind of soul that gets you right away, and which is supported by some great horns, catchy rhythms, and wonderful raspy vocals from Archie and the group! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bombay RoyaleWild Stallion Mountain/Khubsoorat Bewafa (colored vinyl pressing – with download) ... 7-inch
Hope Street (Australia), 2015. New Copy ... $8.99
A nice blend of spacey disco, funk and Bollywood soundtrack grooves from Bombay Royale! "Wild Stallion Mountain" wouldn't be out of place of a late 70s or early 80s Bollywood action soundtrack, but in a playful way, feels right at home now – complete with groovy female lead and male backing vocals, and endearingly silly sound effects! "Khubsoorat Bewafa" has male lead vocals, a little bit of sitar, and a nice bass groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Includes download code.)

Tyrone DavisTurn Back The Hands Of Time (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Dakar, 1970. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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.)

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

London FoggTrippin/Easy Mover ... 7-inch
Imperial, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
We know nothing about this band, but this is a pretty tasty 45! "Trippin" is a good groovy uptempo funk track with some nice choppy guitar. "Easy Mover" is a good slow groover, with soulful lyrics, and a loping bassline. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66Frog/Watch What Happens ... 7-inch
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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
(Promo. Label has a sticker.)

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

✨✧ Myron & E with The Soul InvestigatorsEveryday Love/If I Gave You My Love ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2013. New Copy ... $3.99
Sweet moody soul from Myron & E – one of their darkest singles ever! "If I Gave You My Love" has this wonderfully mellow stepping groove – kind of laidback, but with this beat too – and this edgey guitar that really underscores the offbeat vocals! Highs and lows mix wonderfully – but in a way that's very different from old school harmony soul. "Everyday Love" has a funky break at the start, but then gets sweet and harmonized too – very cool, and very groovy! 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!)
