InvitationsSkiing In The Snow/What's Wrong With Me Baby? ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
The 100th single in the Outta Sight series – issued here in a mighty sweet pic sleeve cover! "Skiing In The Snow" is a harmony stormer with a great Northern groove – hardly the kind of cut you might expect from the title, although there seems to be an odd echo of "Canadian Sunset" in the way the voices rise and fall over the groove! "What's Wrong" has equally great harmonies, too – and this snapping groove that's almost classic Motown, but a bit looser too – in a way that really makes the vocals wonderful! 7-inch, Vinyl record

JuiceFeel Like Good Music/Catch A Groove ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Greedy, 1976. Very Good ... $24.99
"Catch A Groove" is a monstrously hard track to find by Juice – issued only on a single, and with a great riffing guitar and funky keyboards that you'll probably recognize instantly. The cut's got a catchy vocal refrain, but there's a lot of excellent instrumental moments! "Feel Like Good Music" is a great track too – bouncing along at a midtempo groove, with flanged-out wah wah guitars in the middle, bubbling basswork, and even some souful tenor! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Steve Mancha/JJ BarnesGirl Have Pity/I Need Your Love ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Hayley (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Rare work from two Detroit soul legends – recorded decades ago, and issued here for the first time ever! "Girl Have Pity" is a surprising ballad track from Steve Mancha – done with orchestrations that are slightly askew, but great vocals that are very much in the best raw, raspy mode we love from his rare 60s singles! Mancha is joined on the flip by JJ Barnes – and the pair do a wonderful job with "I Need Your Love" – a tune with a surprising amount of space between the lyrics, and a nice raw rumble in a classic Detroit groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Master Plan IncTry It (You'll Like It)/Master Plan Intro ... 7-inch 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

El Michels AffairDetroit Twice/Too Late To Turn Back ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Truth & Soul, 2004. New Copy (reissue)... Around March 3, 2015
Funky Daptone – back firmly in business! This sweet little single from the El Michel's Affair is a real cooker – grooving hard on "Detroit Twice", a sinister bit of funk with a syncopated groove, some great snapping drums, and a warm Latinized horn blast over the top! The tune is really super-dope – like some rough take on a blacksploitation groove – and it's backed here by the equally nice "Too Late To Turn Back", another slow funky number with great horns, and even better guitar! When's the album coming guys? 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Originally on Daptone – reissued by the mighty Truth & Soul!)
