✨✧ AurraI'll Let You Go (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Family Groove, Mid 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great lost track from Aurra – recorded after the duo's famous run on Salsoul Records, and with a cool interplay between the vocals that's totally great! All the group's best elements are firmly in place here – a wicked bassline, tight keyboards peppering the groove, and that sublime male/female vocal style that made the pair so great! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandJungle Fever/Tender Trap ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
A sweet steel band cover of the funky classic "Jungle Fever" – that great groove you'll know from the famous original by Chakachas – served up here with even more of a funky drum break on the intro, and the added charm of funky steel drums! Those drums sound equally great on "Tender Trap" – this cool, snapping, slow-walking groove – funky, but in a very weird way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bahta Gebre-Hiwot/Alemayehu EsheteTessassategn Eko/Ayallkem Tedenko ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1971/1973. New Copy ... $7.99
Bahta Gebre-Hiwot is one of those Ethiopian singers you may not be able to pronounce, but who you'll really be digging once you hear him sing – a cool, raspy style over a slightly funky groove with rolling piano, a bit of horns, and some nice riffing guitar in the middle! Alemayehu Eshete is on the flipside – sounding very cool, too – on a cut that's got this weird-toned piano that makes for hip exotic inflections, even while it's still sounding pretty funky overall! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Seyoum Gebreyes & Wallias Band/Wallias BandMuziqa Muziqa/Muziqa Silt ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973/1977. New Copy ... $7.99
The drums move hard and fast on "Muziqa Muziqa" – and the organ lines do too – peppering this Ethio groover with a really offbeat sound, while tight horn lines keep a soulful finish over the top – and Seyoum's vocals move up and down in a really incredible range! "Muziqa Slit" is the kind of funky nugget that first got folks digging for Ethiopian cuts many years back – a romping break in the way the drums, bass, and guitar start out the cut – before cool organ and horns come into the mix and make it even more wonderful! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Banda Black Rio/MieleMiss Cheryl/Melo Do Tagarela (Rapper's Delight inst) ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
Two killer slices of Brazilian funk! The instrumental "Miss Cheryl" is one of the trademark tunes of Banda Black Rio – a cut with these sharp, jazzy changes that are completely amazing – and which easily have BBR rivaling the sound of Earth Wind & Fire at their best! The flipside is a very cool remake of "Rapper's Delight" – one that starts out in familiar territory on the start, but then has a jazzier piano line instead of the vocal, and a wicked guitar solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Camp LoLuchini aka This Is It/Swing ... 7-inch
Profile/Get On Down, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Follow up to the classic "Coolie High" and maybe one of the last genuinely classic singles ever released on Profile! In the tradition of Main Source and Digable Planets, nice mellow but still energetic production using a nice Herb Alpert-style brass loop and straight, uplifting lyrics. With guest vocals from Digable's Butterfly on the b-side "Swing". (Hip Hop, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ GripsweatsZiggy's Walk/Alpha Dog ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
Nobody's got the gripsweats heare – because the sound of "Ziggy's Walk" is so sharp, so tight, all of the musicians must have had some pretty deft fingers on their instruments! The tune is slow-stepping, but comprised of some very punchy horn parts and riffing guitar – the latter of which opens up in all these very cool wangly ways! "Alpha Dog" is another slow-funk burner too – and has even more of a bold bottom, thanks to some Hammond in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited edition pressed on clear red vinyl.)

HesitationsImpossible Dream/Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out ... 7-inch
Kapp, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of those great 60s tunes – with more power than you'd guess from the surface! "Impossible Dream" was a familiar hit from a show, but in the hands of the group, it's transformed into a magical anthem of power and pride – stepping out with a righteous style that's almost like a secret message. "Nobody Knows" is another familiar number, but done in a really great snapping mode – with a cool intro that has some nice jazz stepping, and an almost conversational spoken part! 7-inch, Vinyl record

CapitolsCool Jerk/Hello Stranger ... 7-inch
Karen, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the hardest soul hits of the 60s! The cut's got a rolling piano and bass groove that's simply sublime – made even better because the horns didn't show up for the session, so the vocals and piano carry all the grooves, making the track work harder than most of its contemporaries from the time! "Hello Stranger" is the group's version of Barbara Lewis' hit – originally produced by Ollie McLaughlin, who's working with the boys here, and done in a very different style than Barbara's version! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bob & Gene/InversionsI Can Be Cool/Version ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
A reworking of this classic harmony tune from the team of Bob & Gene – given extra backing on this version from The Inversions – who mix in lots of dubby, Kingston-styled sounds! The main cut has the duo sounding like a harmony team from the early rocksteady years – and the version on the flip is all instrumental, with just a bit of echoey vocal samples floating through the heavy bass, drums, and horn parts! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dee EdwardsI Can Deal With That (voc, strings) ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
One of the coolest cuts we've ever heard from Dee Edwards – a sweet mellow stepper that has a jazzy guitar lick tripping around the bottom, while Dee sings it strong on the top, but in a nicely understated way! The flipside adds in a bit of strings, but never in a way that dampens the groove at all – more like some nice bit of sweetening in the sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Astrud GilbertoVerve Celebrity Scene (5x7" box set) ... 7-inch
Verve, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 5x7" ... $49.99
One of the coolest Astrud Gilberto rarities we've ever seen – a special promo-only box set, one that fetaures 5 7" singles – all packaged together as a way of pushing Astrud to DJs and promoters in the 60s! The box has cover images from 2 different Verve albums – and titles on the singles include "Manha De Carnaval", "Berimbau", "Once I Loved", "Once Upon A Summertime", "Lugar Bonita", "Look To The Rainbow", "So Nice", "Wish Me A Rainbow", "Aruanda", and "Dindi". 7-inch, Vinyl record
