✨✧ AurraI'll Let You Go (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Family Groove, Mid 80s. New Copy ... $6.99
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

Inner DriveParty Man/Smell The Funk ... 7-inch
Zodiac, Early 70s. Very Good ... $16.99
"Smell The Funk" is a great track – one that begins with a voice saying "ooooooo-wee!", then hits a tight, hard hard hard funky vamp! The track's got some lyrics, but it's really dominated by tight drums, guitar, and the vamping group! "Party Man" is mellower, but has some really cool moogy bits at the beginning, making for a nice space funk approach! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Blue label pressing.)

CapitolsWe Got A Thing That's In The Groove/Tired Running From You ... 7-inch
Karen, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Two northern soul killers form The Capitols! "We Got A Thing" is a shameless follow-up to "Cool Jerk" – but we don't care, because the cut grooves great, and has some really wonderful drums at the beginning. "Tired" begins with some great drums, too – but then swings into a loping harmony groove that's really catchy. Great stuff – thanks to Ollie McLaughlin! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a drillhole.)

Bama Lamas feat Gabrielle SuttonSecurity/It's Too Late ... 7-inch
Bama Lamas, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $5.99
Floorshaking sounds from Chicago's Bama Lama's with guest singer Gabrielle Sutton – paying tribute to the glorious dawn of the 60s guy/girl rocking rhythm & soul singles of Tarheel Slim & Little Ann with the songs – while paying homage to the groovy style pre-Ye Ye French rock singles with the très chic picture sleeve! "Security" is an untempo stormer and "It's Too Late" is slower cooking flipside with cool organ in the middle. The production is excellent, too, with a genuinely vintage feel! (Rock, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Miles BonnyHello Jesus/High Enough ... 7-inch
Plane Jane, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
A funky spiritual tune from Miles Bonny – maybe one of his best tracks in years, and a tune that blends hip hop production with old school gospel lyrics! Miles has a nicely understated approach that's right on the money – and which makes for no fake modes at all – and the flipside has an equally great slow funk groove (nice hard drums!), with some cool touches on trumpet and keyboards alongside the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jukka Eskola Soul TrioIntroducing The Soul Trio/Martha's New Moment ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $8.99
A hard-hitting romper from trumpeter Jukka Eskola – a tune that has the trumpeter working with the well-named Soul Trio – in a groove that feels like some lost jukebox jazz single from the 60s, with the trumpet popping nicely alongside a soaring Hammond! "Martha's New Moment" begins with a great drumbreak, the rolls into more great organ – all very 60s overall, and capped with a cool compressed solo from Jukka! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Deak Ferance & Roger ConradOmaggio A Joe D'Amato E Marcello Giombini ... 7-inch
Cineploit (Austria), 2012. New Copy (pic cover)... About May 26, 2017
A great little record that's almost worth the price of the cover art alone – especially if you dig Italian horror films as much as we do! Side one is a tribute to the film Le Notti Erotiche Dei Morti Viventi – served up with a groove that would be perfect in a 70s giallo thriller – these cool quick-tempo beats with a nice undercurrent of sex – topped by keyboard riffs that echo Goblin or Keith Emerson – and all recorded with a very vintage feel! The flipside features two tracks in tribute to the film Man-Eater – the first done with cool keyboards that almost have a John Carpenter vibe – the second with an even spookier mix of noise and organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Orange & black splattered vinyl. Limited to 350 copies.)

FruitWhat You Gonna Do/Life Is A Challenge ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A quick-stepping bassline kicks this one off, but there's also a fair bit of moogy keyboards in the mix, too – arcing up and down the spectrum over the straightforward groove – creating a nicely cosmic complexity over the party-heavy lyrics! The flipside's got an even cooler vibe – fast-moving congas with the rhythms, ala Miami club – and more of those sweet moogy touches next to the vocals! 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

✨✧ Jungle FireFirewalker/Chalupa ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99
Fast guitar steps out quick on "Firewalker" – setting a groove that's followed by fast congas and some heavy riffing horns – all burning together with just the right sort of intensity you'd guess from the group's name! "Chalupa" continues with a sweet tropical groove – darn funky, and with this cool plunky beat that's mighty unique! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Luis BacalovCarrefour/Sistemo L'America E Torno ... 7-inch
RCA/Four Flies (Italy), 1974/1976. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $19.99
One of the funkiest tunes we've ever heard from Luis Bacalov – quite different than both the western and sentimental soundtrack material that's usually his better-known work! "Carrefour" has a wicked drumbreak at the start – snapping under cool wah-wah guitar that's very loose and open – while a bassline kicks in and makes the whole thing even better, and organ, tenor, and percussion build as the tune moves on! "Sistemo L'America" has lots of percussion right at the start – funky congas next to more great bass – topped with tinkling piano, sweet flute, and some very nice organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 400 copies.)

✨✧ Friction BandWatchin You/To The Sky ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
No friction here – as the group's tight and right on the money – flowing wonderfully through the completely catchy groove of "Watching You"! The tune's almost got the appeal of some of the Fantasy Records work by Wayne Henderson – funky club, but with a more sophisticated vibe too – and the flipside features a sweet mellow number with wonderfully warm vocals, and these very cool moogy keyboards! 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 ... $0.99
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

Andrea BalducciSpooky/Hurt So Bad ... 7-inch
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Two of the coolest cuts from Andrea Balducci's excellent album on Schema – a slow, slinky version of "Spooky", with sweet Fender Rhodes under the lyrics – and a super-dope funk remake of "Hurt So Bad" – with even more Rhodes, and a groove that really beats the original! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lady WrayUnderneath My Feet/Guilty ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99 9.98
A funky snapping single from Lady Wray – one that's got a vamping guitar alongside the drums – almost in a modern update of a "Fever" sort of groove – which opens into deeper territory as the lady steps up and belts out the lyric! "Guilty" has a slower-breaking drum at the core – which makes the track almost a cool combination of sweet soul and funk, especially given the harmonizing vocals of the backup singers! 7-inch, Vinyl record
