Elza Soares/ElizabethMas Que Nada/Vou Falar-Lhe Francamente ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Great work from samba soul genius Elza Soares! "Mas Que Nada" is one of Elza's greatest tunes ever – a fierce remake of the Jorge Ben hit, done with some soaring, jazzy backings, and served up in a delightful way that's made the track a jazz dance classic for years!

SonicsPsycho/Maintaining My Cool (clear orange colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Jerden/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $9.99
A howling classic by The Sonics! "Psycho" will always be one of our favorite Sonics' tunes – a scorcher with an R&B influence – done with a maniacal proto-punk urgency. That sax honking behind those bugged-out vocals – it's absolutely essential! "Maintaining ... (Rock, Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Sugar feat Courtney JohnAll I Know (orig, version) ... 7-inch
Sugar Shack (France), 2015. New Copy ... $6.99
A moodier record than usual from Soul Sugar – still funky, but in a dark and slow-stepping style – one that feels nice and spooky, too, thanks to some good use of echo around the rhythms – all of which sets this perfect backdrop for the equally moody lyrics from Courtney John ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Special EdI Got It Made (original, businesslike version) ... 7-inch
Profile/Get On Down, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The classic from a young Special Ed – coming out incredibly strong circa '89, with the confidence and charisma of a veteran MC, despite being just 16 years old at the time! "I Got It Made" is benchmark, laidback braggadocio with the skill to back it all up, and funky period ... (Hip Hop, Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Great little funky 45 version – in a big hole, mini-replica of the classic Profile logo 12" sleeve!)

Spirit Of LovePower Of Your Love/He's Alright ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A snapping bassy groover from Spirit Of Love – a track that's got a vibe that's almost 80s soul overall, especially the cool kind of indie work from the underground! A female singer steps out, loud and proud in the lead – maybe reminding us a bit of Paulette Reeves on TK – while ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Barbara StantMy Mind Holds On To Yesterday/Baby I Love You ... 7-inch
Record Shack (Austria), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Two great cuts from this excellent obscure Virginia singer – who cut most of her work on the Norfolk scene of the 70s! "My Mind Holds On To Yesterday" mixes modern soul grooves with a nice deep soul vocal from Barbara – who really gives the tune a lot of depth, and makes it ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Street PeopleYour Mama Had A Baby/Baby You Got It All ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $5.99
A never-issued track from the Street People – issued here with one of their rare Spring Records singles on the flip! "Your Mama Had A Baby" has a heavy, righteous sort of groove – funky rhythms underneath the sweeter lyrics, which are traded back and forth by the group in a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bubba SuggsEverything That Looks Good/You Don't Deserve ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
There's a riffing guitar line that starts this single out that totally grabs us right away – almost a vibe that feels like it was pulled from a James Brown blacksploitation soundtrack score – then set up as a tight 45 cut with righteous vocals from Bubba Suggs over the top! The track's ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Swinging Stars Of DominicaLas Mal Parle/Jam Jam ... 7-inch
Sofrito (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
There's a great romping rhythm to "Las Mal Parle" – almost a cumbia vibe, but a bit different too – as the tune's peppered by some wonderful horns, including this trombonist who really sounds like he's on fire! "Jam Jam" begins with this nicely spacey keyboard line ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
