✨✧ 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

Wanderers/Ruth PriceShadrach Meshack & Abednego/Shadrach ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
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

✨✧ James BrownPayback (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1973. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousSoul Fire 7-Inch Box Set (8 X 7" box set) ... 7-inch
Soul Fire/Truth & Soul, Late 90s/Early 2000s. New Copy 8 x 7" (reissue)... Out Of Stock

Soul Fire's run of funk 45s in the 90s are pivotal to the resurgence of funk music as a vital force, and stands to this day as some of the most vital of the era – for both the progressive, contemporary funk recordings and for their revival of legends like the above mentioned Lee Fields. This box includes Soul Fire landmarks and overlooked tunes alike – and includes "I'm The Man" by Lee Fields & The Explorers, "Chum's Pimpage" by Bronx River Parkway, "Addis Ababa" by Zafari, "Children's Song" by The Third Eye, "Don't Think. . .Do" by Bama & The Family, "Funky Crawl" and "Rap It Together" by Detroit Sex Machines, "Soul Dynamite" by Lee Fields & The Explorers and more. 7-inch, Vinyl record
