Freddie HubbardFirst Light/Yesterday's Dreams ... 7-inch
CTI, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Shorter versions of two tunes from Freddie's wonderful First Light album! The cut "First Light" starts with a swirl of percussion and horns – then rolls into a wonderful melodic groove that's one of his most memorable tunes since "Little Sunflower"! "Yesterday's Dreams" is a ballad number with larger orchestrations from Don Sebesky – and Fred blowing sweetly on muted trumpet over the top. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a CTI sleeve. Label has a small sticker.)

✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneThank You (Fallettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)/Everybody Is A Star ... 7-inch
Epic, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
A classic! "Thank You" was without a doubt Sly Stone's most far-reaching funk track – as it was covered in a million versions, by a huge amount of other jazz, soul, and funk groups. This is still one of the best versions, though – and on the flipside you get the wonderful "Everybody Is A Star". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Yellow label pressing.)

Voices Of East HarlemCashing In/Take A Stand ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
Although less remembered than other tracks of theirs, we think "Cashing In" is one of the best tracks ever from this righteous 70s group! The cut starts with this cool hard piano, then runs into a soaring soul groove produced by Leroy Hutson and Curtis Mayfield – completely sublime, and extremely uplifting. "Take A Stand" is great too – another message-oriented cut that shows why the group was so wonderful. 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

Magic In ThreesAt Jody's/A Breezy Day ... 7-inch
Kings Underground, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
There's a great break at the start of "At Jody's" – the kind you'd have to search hundreds of vintage records to find – and which is also followed by some completely wonderful slow-bumping bassline and wicked wangly guitar – almost like a slow-grooving number from the Shaft soundtrack! "Breezy Day" is a great funk track too – a bit chunkier, with a vibe that almost reminds us of Three Pieces' classic album on Fantasy! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to just 300 copies!)
