Jimmy McGriffKiko/Jumpin At The Woodside ... 7-inch
Sue, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A standout groover from Jimmy's years at Sue! "Kiko" is a monster – humping, thumping, and bumping its way along – Jimmy wailing over the top on organ, while the band does a super-vamp underneath like some sort of funky caterpillar! "Jumpin" is a decent enough remake of the Basie tune – done the McGriff way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Andre 3000All Together Now (voc, inst) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Legacy, 2010/2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $7.99
Andre 3000 takes on the Beatles-classic, giving it a great pop funk feel that would've fit right in on his The Love Below side of that OutKast classic! Originally issued as promo single, it's pretty stunning that didn't get a proper release this 7-inch – which also includes a never before released instrumental version – which is suprisingly great itself sans Andre's charsimatic vocals! (Hip Hop, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ David BowieBe My Wife/Art Decade (live Perth 1978) (pic disc) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, 1977/1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Fantastic work from the Berlin period of David Bowie – one of his few catchy tunes from the time, backed with an unreleased live recording! "Be My Wife" is fantastic – not only does the tune have all the darkness of the Heroes/Low period, but it also has a surprisingly optimistic upturn in the lyric – which makes for a wonderful contrast. The studio version of "Art Decade" originally appeared on the Low album, but this version is a never-issued live take recorded in Perth in 1978! All that, and a great double-sided pic single too. (Rock, Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fame GangGrits & Gravy (extended mono)/Crime Don't Pay ... 7-inch
Fame/BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic extended mono take of this classic cut from The Fame Gang – a tune that's got a hard-burning, fast-romping approach to funk – one that's much more like The James Brown Band on late 60s King records than the usual sounds of Muscle Shoals! "Crime Don't Pay" was never issued back in the day, and is another funky monster – with fast-breaking drums, and a totally wicked bassline underneath the organ and this weird siren-like use of what must be moog! 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!)

Jon HendricksCloudburst/Four Brothers ... 7-inch
Decca, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Very cool – and one of the first records we've seen issued under the name of Jon Hendricks! The single is pre-Lambert Hendricks & Ross – but also features backing from the Dave Lambert singers. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo copy, too. One label has a small sticker.)

✨✧ MinitsStill A Part Of Me/If You Don't Like My Apples ... 7-inch
Sounds Of Memphis/BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Soaring soul from this sweet Memphis soul group – an overlooked female act who have a vibe that's similar to the Sweet Inspirations, but maybe hipper and funkier overall! "Still A Part Of Me" sounds like the best work by The Emotions on Volt Records – and the never-issued "If You Don't Like My Apples" does a great job of mixing a funky groove with a sweet sing-song lyric! 7-inch, Vinyl record

MiraclesWay Over There/Depend On Me ... 7-inch
Tamla/Third Man, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Early greatness from Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – a tune from that early stretch when the singer's voice was much more firmly entwined in the harmonies of the rest of the group – then tied to soaring strings, and given some great Barry Gordy production! "Depend On Me" is even more of a harmony heaven number – a slow-moving, blue-tinged tune that's completely sublime – and which matches Smokey's high lead with the female singer in the group! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful reissue pressing – in a tricycle logo paper sleeve just like the early Tamla pressing!)
