Freddie RoachBrown Sugar/Next Time You See Me ... 7-inch
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $13.99
A great one from Freddie – a hard-wailing jukebox number that also has a nicely off-kilter feel! The track starts out with a Blue Note 60s soul jazz funky groove – but Freddie's got the organ running with a slight Larry Young touch – all of which makes for a nice counterpoint before Joe Henderson blows into the tune with some soulful work on the tenor! "Next Time" is a bit more in an older soul jazz mode – but still quite nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has an ink stamp.)

Seyoum Gebreyes & Wallias Band/Wallias BandMuziqa Muziqa/Muziqa Silt ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973/1977. New Copy ... $7.99
The drums move hard and fast on "Muziqa Muziqa" – and the organ lines do too – peppering this Ethio groover with a really offbeat sound, while tight horn lines keep a soulful finish over the top – and Seyoum's vocals move up and down in a really incredible range! "Muziqa Slit" is the kind of funky nugget that first got folks digging for Ethiopian cuts many years back – a romping break in the way the drums, bass, and guitar start out the cut – before cool organ and horns come into the mix and make it even more wonderful! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul MotivatorsIt Ain't Fair But It's Fun/Side Hustle ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99
A wickedly classic funky 45 – a contemporary recording, but one that's got all the dark-tinged, muddy-cornered funk of a rare gem from the indie scene at the start of the 70s! The production's the star here as much as the band – and the two come together in the kind of perfect groove that would make this one right at home with your rarest funky 45s! (And take it from us – we don't make comparisons that easily!) "Side Hustle" is a bit cleaner, but still nice and funky – sharp horns arcing nicely over the tune's bassline – which is complicated, but never loses its groove! 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

VolcanosGotta Be A False Alarm/Movin & Groovin ... 7-inch
Record Shack (Austria), 1965. New Copy ... $4.99
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
