PoetsShe Blew A Good Thing/Out To Lunch ... 7-inch
Symbol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Classic 60's northern material by this lesser-known group who recorded for Sue's Symbol subsidiary. Juggy Murray produced the single, and it's got a good rolling catchy groove, with a hard sing-song chorus. Very nice stuff, and a beautiful loud original single! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Fade label pressing, including a jukebox tab.)

Afro Kelenkye BandJungle Funk/Mother Africa/Munchin Session/Too Bad Girl (2 x 7" singles) ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, 1977. New Copy 2 x 7" single (pic cover)... $13.99
Rare funk from the Kelekye Band – material recorded after their legendary Moving World album, but never issued at the time! This amazing package is totally great – four tracks of offbeat Afro Funk, with an approach that's heavy on percussion, and topped by jazzy riffs that really complicate the sound – a vibe that goes way deeper than more common Afro modes of the time, thanks to the rich solo energy of the horns! Trumpet is especially nice, and works great with the vocals – especially when they hit a warmer 70s soul mode that almost makes the record feel like Hugh Masekela teaming up with The Blackbyrds. Titles include "Mother Africa", "Munchin Session", "Too Bad Girl", and "Jungle Funk". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jon Appleton & Don CherryDon/Jon ... 7-inch
Cacophonic (UK), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
Never-heard work from the legendary team of Jon Appleton and Don Cherry – music that was recorded for the Human Music album the pair issued on Flying Dutchman – but issued here for the first time ever! The sounds here have that amazing mix of electronic and organic elements you'll know from the famous full album – oddly-shaped notes from Cherry on pocket trumpet, mixed with unusual textures and tones from Appleton on analogue electronics – very thoughtfully combined in an amazing way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Avons/Joan MoodyWhen The Boy That You Love Is Loving You/I Can't Stay Away From You ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $7.99
The Avons are a really wonderful girl group, and they sound wonderful here – stepping along in this great midtempo groove – a cut that was never issued back in the day, but which has all the poise and sparkle of the best Detroit female soul of the time! Joan Moody steps out with another unissued track on the flipside – an excellent cut that has a nicely complicated instrumental blend of vibes and saxophone – which provide this great counterpart to Moody's sweet style of singing! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sugar Pie DeSanto/FireGit Back/Flight To Cuba – Bay Area Funk Sampler ... 7-inch
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $4.99 6.98
2 funky gems from the Bay Area scene – both issued on a limited edition funky 45! "Git Back" is a crackling bit of funk from Sugar Pie DeSanto – a singer we know more for her straighter soul on Chess, but who steps out here with a massive deep funk diva approach – perfect for the tune's crackling drums! "Flight To Cuba" is a Latinized number from Fire – one that features some great funky flute, heavy horns, and conga on the intro – then rolls into a massively funky guitar-based groove that wails along wickedly! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Marvin GayeLet Your Conscience Be Your Guide/Never Let You Go ... 7-inch
Tamla/Third Man, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
An early moment of brilliance from the young Marvin Gaye – already way ahead of the pack with a single like this! "Let Your Conscience" is a slow, mellow number that has Gaye almost taking on a bit of gospel in his approach – from his soaring vocals in the lead, to the message in the music, right down to the female chorus and Hammond in the back! "Never Let You Go" is a swinger – more upbeat, with that romping energy that always made Marvin such a hit on Motown dancefloors! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful reissue pressing – in a tricycle logo paper sleeve just like the early Tamla pressing!)

Christopher Komeda (Krzysztof Komeda)Rosemary's Baby ... 7-inch
Harkit (UK), 1968. Near Mint- (pic cover, reissue)... $11.99
An amazing little soundtrack – one that's as spooky and eerie as the film for which it was written, and which was also one of the few American recordings issued by Polish jazz great Krzysztof Komeda! The core of the album is an especially haunting theme – one hummed as a lullaby by Mia Farrow on the title, and which is repeated often throughout – a dreamy little number that had a surprising life long beyond the film and this album. We still like the original best – and especially appreciate Komeda's blend of soft jazz, odd electronics, and some darker atonal passages – all of which combine here to make the record a masterpiece throughout – on a level that easily matches the best from Morricone at the time! Titles include "Main Theme", "The Coven", "More Panic", "Lullaby - Variation", "Through The Closet" and "Panic Again". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chico LeverettSolid Sender/I'll Never Love Again ... 7-inch
Tamla/Third Man, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
One of the lesser-known talents from the early days of Motown – a great soul singer who works here with backup from the Rayber Voices Of Detroit – who groove along with the romping rhythm in a mighty nice way! The tune's more R&B than soul – but Chico really stretches out in he flipside, which has this blue-toned vibe and a sublime delivery that's almost in a Sam Cooke mode! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful reissue pressing – in a tricycle logo paper sleeve just like the early Tamla pressing!)

✨✧ Master Plan IncTry It (You'll Like It)/Master Plan Intro ... 7-inch
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
The title's a reference to a once-famous ad campaign, but the groove is pure funky soul all the way through – from the sweet break that starts the single, to the soaring lead vocals that really make the whole thing wonderful! The tune may well be one of the best 45s we've ever heard reissued from Numero – and it's backed by the even bolder, funkier "Master Plan Intro". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tony McPheeHunt (Revbjelde edit, Revbjelde waltz) ... 7-inch
Buried Treasure (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $8.99
A wonderfully weird cut – one that mixes lots of cool analogue electronics with a slightly proggish vocal line from Tony McPhee – all then taken into really wild directions by the edit here! The whole thing's almost got the mix of funk and trippiness that we love in the best Finders Keepers reissues – and even the "waltz" cut has a fuzzy brilliance you wouldn't expect! 7-inch, Vinyl record

MonicaFreedom/I Don't Know Nothing Else To Tell You But I Love You ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $4.99
Fierce funk from Monica – issued here on a tiny Philly label! "Freedom" is this really hard burner that starts with fast drums and organ that roll together with mighty power – then get Monica's righteous vocals to really send the whole thing over the top! "I Don't Know Nothing" begins with just the lady's vocals – then steps into a badass romp that has a great James Brown bassline at the bottom, and lots of heavy horns over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record
