James BrownI Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing (Open Up The Door, I'll Get It Myself) (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
King, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An excellent funky track from The Godfather! The cut's got this cool little popping guitar that's very unique – snapping away through the whole track, creating this sinister groove that's hardly ever been matched! Darn hard to find on vinyl in any form, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Incredible Bongo BandBongo Rock/Apache ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two of the greatest songs ever from the Incredible Bongo Band – brought together here in a special limited edition picture sleeve! "Bongo Rock" is a killer – a tune with a massive break that's been sampled countless times, and which has this amazing percussion part in the middle, mixed with lots of very cool horn effects! "Apache" is maybe even more classic – one of THE cuts that gave birth to hip hop – with a break you'll recognize instantly, and this mad groove that's plenty great on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousStax Vinyl 7s Box (10 x 7 inch singles) ... 7-inch
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 10 x 7 inch set ... $62.99 64.98
Fantastic sounds from the legendary Stax Records – that mighty Memphis powerhouse of soul! This very cool box is limited and numbered – and features a superb selection of second-chapter material from the label – tracks from the post-1968 time when Atlantic took away all the early hits – which maybe left Stax in a position to be even more creative and experimental than ever before! None of these titles are too-played tracks – and instead, the set brings together a nice mix of deep soul, Northern grooves, and even a bit of funk – with tracks that include "Hey You Don't Fight It" by The Montclairs, "The Stars" by Barbara Lewis, "The Whole Damn World Is Going Crazy" by John Gary Williams, "Why Must Our Eyes Always Be Turned Backwards" by Lou Bond, "Special Kind Of Woman" by Paul Thompson, "You're My Only Temptation" by Roz Ryan, "Let Hurt Put You In The Loser's Seat" by Joni Wilson, "Can You Win" by Charlene & The Soul Serenaders, "Friday Night" by Johnnie Taylor, "Happy" by William Bell, "One More Chance" by Margie Joseph, "I'll Never Stop Loving You" by Carla Thomas, "Sweet Sherry" by JJ Barnes, and "I'm The One Who Loves You" by Darrell Banks. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandJungle Fever/Tender Trap ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ El Michels AffairShadowboxin/Iron Maiden ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
El Michels and Wu-Tang – always a wonderful combination, as you'll hear on this fantastic funky 45! The group take on "Shadowboxin" and strip it right down to its roots – just bassline, slow-stepping drums, and a wicked bit of organ – completely different without any vocals, but maybe showing a further side of the Genius/GZA genius! The Ghostface track "Iron Maiden" is remade on the flip – just badass downturning groove, tight horn blasts, and some very cool organ that comes across with a nicely spooky vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

MarceloAlgo No Ar (original, Steven J edit) ... 7-inch
Pepite (Switzerland), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
A rare bit of Brazilian funk from the 70s – served up with this fast-riffing groove that's totally great, which is then punctuated by very soulful piano – and topped with vocals that are in that totally cool style of Brazilian production that was big at the time! In other words, Marcelo's voice stretches out to fill the full fuzzy space of both speakers, while the groove rolls right down the middle with a tremendous vibe! The edit is pretty nice, too – and really seems to have great respect for the core instrumental elements, which it magnifies even more! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 500 copies.)

Bama Lamas feat Gabrielle SuttonSecurity/It's Too Late ... 7-inch
Bama Lamas, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $1.99
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

DJ HarrisonRule The World/I'm From Virginia/Brown Water Blues ... 7-inch
Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
A deep funk inspired single from DJ Harrison! "Rule The World" has a murky vibe that gives it the right kind of vintage gritty mood, with the vocals mucked up to almost hallucinogenic effect – but that's backed by guitar bass and drums that's got a cool 70s funky soul feel. "Brown Water Blues" has a similarly submerged sound, this one riffing a bit on Hi Records style bluesy soul & funk (Hip Hop, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Comes a cool little Stones Throw logo sleeve – mimicking the classic era Epic Records logo!)

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)... $12.99
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.)

✨✧ BrownoutEvolver/Things You Say (colored vinyl pressing) ... 7-inch
Fat Beats, 2017. New Copy ... $7.99
There's a great fuzzy groove going on here – maybe a bit more distorted than the usual Brownout sound – but still equally funky! "Evolver" has this lyric and an overall vibe that maybe places it in the territory of War during their glory days – and "Things You Say" is a bit looser, but no less funky – with a cool wah-wah guitar line that skirts the core groove next to the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(On translucent red vinyl!)

Budos BandMagus Mountain/Vertigo ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 7.99
One of those funky 45s you can tell will be great – just by looking at the surface of the grooves! The tune starts out all compressed and trebly at the start – with fuzzy guitar over a spare rhythm, which then gets full and funky once the cut gets going – but then takes this great break about two-thirds of the way through, relaxing its Ethio-styled funk for a sparer, spacey bit that features more cool guitar before getting funky again! "Vertigo" is even trippier – almost Ventures at the start, filtered through the psych generation – then much more Afro-styled in the rhythms, with these weird distorted screaming horns! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsHow Long Do I Have To Wait For You? (reggae version)/How Long Do I Have To Dub For You? ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2008. New Copy ... $4.99
A very cool remake of this cut from Sharon Jones – produced by Ticklah here with a sweetly dubby vibe! "How Long" still has plenty of soul here, but it also takes on a bit of a Kingston groove too – stepping along with a 60s rocksteady vibe that supports Sharon's vocals surprisingly well – and really unlocks a whole new side of her talents. The dub version on the flip is even more inventive – and the whole thing's a great fresh look at the mighty Sharon Jones sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 5 x 7 inch ... Out Of Stock
Soul Jazz knocks it out of the park with this one – a cool collection that brings together five funky 45s that represent the cream of the crop of the 70s underground! These aren't overplayed classics, but the kind of sought-after nuggets that are still impossible to find in the format – and which really represent the more sophisticated side of the scene at the time. Titles include "Tryng To Get Next To You" b/w "I Won The Big Deal" by Arnold Blair, "Human" b/w "Total Satisfaction" by Brief Encounter, "Feel The Beat Feel The Heat" b/w "Spanish Harlem" by Johnny Adams, "I've Taken Over" b/w "Raising Hell" by Norma Jean, and "Sweet & Kind" b/w "Don't Listen To The Grapevine" by Richard Brown. 7-inch, Vinyl record

ApostlesBanko Woman/Faith Luck & Music ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99
Fast funky grooves from The Apostles – one of the few 70s Afro combos who could maybe go head to head with the sharpest American funk acts of the time! "Banko Woman" is a wickedly quick barrage of basslines, snapping percussion, and very cool guitar – a tune that's got a bit of chorus vocals, but mostly seems to focus on the instrumentation – especially on the nice breakdown in the middle! "Faith Luck & Music" is maybe a bit slower, but equally funky – with catchy sing-song vocals, and almost a Caribbean vibe on the guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Andrea BalducciSpooky/Hurt So Bad ... 7-inch
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $4.99
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

Bamma GammaBack To The Zoo/Cannibalism ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
The drums are funky and the guitar is mighty – folded together alongside each other in this mighty nice way – almost with the focused frenzy of a Dennis Coffey funky 45 from way back! "Cannibalism" is cool too – a bit more romping in the groove, but still with lots of great guitar – and a strangely exotic current all the way through! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 250!)

Bottle TreeOpen Secret (main, drums) ... 7-inch
International Anthem, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99
A fantastic track from this ultra-hip Chicago group – very spiritual in terms of the lyrics and soulful vocals, but also given a very cool crackle, thanks to some killer work on drums and percussion! Those elements get even more exposure on the flipside – which is a really great way to hear the complex talents of drummer Tommaso Moretti! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Brothers NylonYou Got A Tiger?/Does The Tiger Got You? ... 7-inch
Mocambo (Germany), 2013. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A sinister, snakey groove from the Brothers Nylon – one that mixes some slight exotic phrasing with an old school funky mode – in a way that only gets more confident as the groove goes on! The flipside is even cooler – a variation of this approach that has some really offbeat rhythms and odd instrumental phrasing – almost trippy, but with a real sense of focus too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Marvin GayeTrouble Man/Don't Mess With Mister T ... 7-inch
Tamla, 1972. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Superdope work from Marvin! "Trouble Man" begins with strings, and slides into one of the coolest vocals that Marvin cut on wax in the 70s – and "Don't Mess With Mister T" sneaks along in a blend of strings and electric keys – percolating a sound that would show up later on I Want You, but which really sounds magnificent as an instrumental here! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Michael HendersonLet Love Enter/Come To Me ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1976/1981. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Two great tracks that remind us why the music of Michael Henderson has always been so special! "Let Love Enter" has this cool skittish rhythm at the bottom, while Henderson soars smoothly over the top with his vocals – in a blend of modes that almost puts the tune in the hipness of Jon Lucien territory! "Come To Me" is a bit more straightforward, but in a fantastic mellow funky soul sort of way – which makes the whole thing one hell of a laidback stepper! 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
