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

Joao Luiz/Toni TornadoSuper Mulher/Podes Crer Amizade ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1971/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Two funky nuggets from 70s Brazil! "Super Mulher" has a weirdly trippy vibe, but is downright funky overall – with weird moogy lines and wah wah guitar working some magic with the vocals over a bad-stepping groove! "Podes Crer Amizade" is even funkier – with these massive drums that break at the start – all with a tribal vibe that's almost like "Jungle Fever"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul SurfersGarcia Brother (part 2)/Mirza ... 7-inch
Methode Rhythme Vinyles, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... $6.99
The Soul Surfers serve up an even more massive part 2 to their "Garcia Brother" cut – complete with this cool funky sitar-styled guitar over the drums – which brings a hip exotic vibe to the instrumental, while the Hammond swirls away over the top! "Mizra" is a remake of an old 60s tune by Nino Ferrer – done here as an instrumental, and again with more great organ in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Elaine Armstrong/Betty MoorerTears Begin To Fall/Speed Up ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner from Elaine Armstrong – a tune that's got a massive slow drum break right from the start, mixed with this haunting flute line – then offset by Elaine's raspy vocals in this fantastic way! The tune's got the same slow funk mode you'd know from "Didn't I" – but is even more powerful overall. The flipside features Betty Moorer's classic "Speed Up" – an incredibly groovy loping soul track from Chicago, with arrangements by Tom Tom and production by Bill Bunky Sheppard in keeping with his best work from the time! Betty's got a nice raw soul voice, and really belts out the groovy track – which has an excellent hook. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Wanderers/Ruth PriceShadrach Meshack & Abednego/Shadrach ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great group soul version of this classic biblical theme – set to a sweet R&B-styled vamp, and served up in a wonderful blend of lead vocals and deep harmonies! Ruth Price is pretty great on the flipside – a jazzier take on the tune, with this wonderful drum passage underneath the vocals – lots of acoustic bass, toms, and snare under Price's lyrics! 7-inch, Vinyl record
