James BrownPayback (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
One of James Brown's greatest cuts ever – a stone funky monster that never gets old! The tune's got a snapping slow funk beat that's simply incredible, and it builds and builds with a sound that has an intensity that can't be beat! Plus, this 2-part single is actually pretty tough to find – a lot rarer than the album, with a strange spoken announcer over a few parts! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

✨✧ VariousMonkey Business (10 x 7 inch box set) ... 7-inch
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 10 x 7 inch ... Out Of Stock
No monkey business here – as the collection's an incredible document of early reggae tracks that broke big on the UK scene – embraced by the first wave of young skinheads who took the torch from earlier mods! Use of the word "skinhead" here is nothing like its later use in the US – and instead, the term applies to working class kids in the UK who shook off some of the fancier trappings of mod culture, and went back to basics – and often found the shift from rocksteady to reggae to be a perfect soundtrack for their scene! As a result, skinheads were huge supporters of new sounds coming from Jamaica – and really helped establish a UK audience for the music, on labels like Trojan and Island – the former of which is featured heavily here. Titles include "Israelites" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, "Return Of Django" by The Upsetters, "Mama Look Deh" by The Reggay Boys, "Monkey Man" by The Maytals, "Long Shot Kick De Bucket" by The Pioneers, "John Jones" by Rudy Mills, "Wet Dream" by Max Romeo, "Tighten Up" by The Inspirations, "Them A Laugh & A Ki Ki" by The Soul Mates, "Double Barrel" by Dave & Ansel Collins, "Hang Em High" by Richard Ace, "Sufferer" by The Kingstonians, and "No More Heartaches" by The Beltones.
