✨✧ Marie KnightThat's No Way To Treat A Girl (long version)/You Lie So Well ... 7-inch
Musicor/Outta Sight (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $7.99
Marie Knight really knocks it out of the park with the long version of "That's No Way To Treat A Girl" – using these beautifully raspy vocals in the lead, while sweeter female backing singers lift her sound to the heavens – as does some great use of heavy vibes in the groove! "You Lie So Well" is tremendous, too – a tune that has these horn stepping parts that start the whole thing off into a very romping groove – which has Marie sounding even more fluid on her vocals! The tune may be scolding – but it sounds incredibly upbeat! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Swinging Stars Of DominicaLas Mal Parle/Jam Jam ... 7-inch
Sofrito (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
There's a great romping rhythm to "Las Mal Parle" – almost a cumbia vibe, but a bit different too – as the tune's peppered by some wonderful horns, including this trombonist who really sounds like he's on fire! "Jam Jam" begins with this nicely spacey keyboard line – cool and moogy at the start, then giving way to some more fierce energy from the group, and a great keyboard solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VolcanosGotta Be A False Alarm/Movin & Groovin ... 7-inch
Record Shack (Austria), 1965. New Copy ... $8.99
A killer Northern Soul single from the Volcanos – a group who definitely earn their explosive name with "Gotta Be A False Alarm"! The tune runs off tight right from the start – with this mighty Detroit-styled groove, and rock-solid vocals that have the lead singer trading lines beautifully with the harmonies from the group! "Movin & Groovin" does exactly what the title promises – and kicks into gear with this wonderful horn part over triple-time drums – all instrumental, and delivered at a level that hardly makes you miss the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New WorldWorld Today/JR ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A righteous funky cut from New World – one that talks about the issues of society, but grooves along at a mighty fast clip – incredible basslines, riffing guitar, and horns from the group – all moving at a speed so quick, the vocalist must have done plenty to keep up! There's a cool effect on one vocal in the middle – and the whole thing's got a totally powerful vibe! "JR" is code for "Jay Reefer" – a cat the police are looking for a the start of the funky tune – and who they chase through the vocals with a recurrent siren in the groove! The cut is mighty heavy – almost a Norman Whitfield groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ AntibalasDirty Money/AWOL ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two stormers from Antibalas! "Dirty Money" is one of their boldest cuts in years – a tune that leaps right out of the grooves, right from the start – thanks to plenty of searing Afro Funk rhythms, and even moreso to a wicked Hammond part that burns beautifully for the first minute or so – working out sounds that are incredibly fresh and powerful! "AWOL" has more horns in the lead, and a great funky bassline at the core – a bad-stepping little number that's equal parts Afro and Funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record
