Ariola, 1979. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Both sides are excellent jazzy modern soul tracks by this oft-overlooked soul group from the 70's. Very nice sound, with tight tight production, and a sweet soulful vibe that's very satisfying. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cliff Nobles & CoHorse/Love Is All Right ... 7-inch
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
A classic! "The Horse" is a great 60s instrumental groover that virtually set the tone for the next 10 years of brass instrumentation in soul music! The cut's got a raw TSU Tornadoes or Bar-Kays kind of feel, with a horn line right up front, in a catchy rolling groove that never quits! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(One label has a small bit of tape.)

NobodyI Saw You/Heaven's Love ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Fast bass and freaky vocals – a pretty cool little cut from Nobody, and one that bumps along at a quicker pace than the usual funky cut from the time! There's almost an Ohio funk feel to the tune, but the whole thing's even more unbridled overall – and balanced out nicely by "Heave ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1971/1973. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Noelita gets a great funky bassline on "Sambalanca" – a sweet bottom groove that's almost samba soul overall – which makes for a very nice blend with her lilting vocals, and a jazzy horn and Hammond touch to the tune! Doris Monteiro is on the flip – singing a lovely ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

NoteablesFunky Frog/Get Ready ... 7-inch
Sound City/Tramp (Germany), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
The Noteables take off here on two groovy tracks – one a pretty nice cover of Rare Earth's "Get Ready" – the other the extra nice "Funky Frog", which has the group leaping forward in a frenzy of heavy bass, heady horns, and these wicked changes that feel like they ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ocote Soul Sounds feat Quantic & Chico MannA Pesar La Vida/Not Yet ... 7-inch
Wonderwheel, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99
There's a nicely chunky bottom on "A Pesar La Vida" – a slight current of funk that may well have to with Quantic's presence on the single – as the whole thing almost feels like one of his Flowering Inferno tracks! "Not Yet" has a great blend of Latin and funk, too ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

OrgoneStrike/New You ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 7.98
Niki Crawford takes the lead on vocals this time around – bringing a deep female soul sound to Orgone, in a mighty nice way! "Strike" has an instrumental punch that supports her vocals – tight drums and plenty of heavy horns – and the single's backed by "New ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Finders Keepers (UK), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $14.99

Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A beautiful deep soul ballad from Eddie Parker – penned by Lorraine Chandler and Jack Ashford, and done here with this slow-tripping groove that really lets Parker open up and soar on the lyrics!

Eddie Parker/Pace-SettersBody Chains/Push On Jesse Jackson ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunner from Eddie Parker – an obscure tune put together by Jack Ashford, with the kind of funky snapping rhythm that Jack did so well in the 70s – building up the groove in a way that really suits Eddie's deep soul vocals, and sends them over the top with some added chorus support! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gino ParksFire/For This I Thank You ... 7-inch
Jazzman (UK), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A hard-burning early cut from Gino Parks – the Motown smoker "Fire", done here at a triple-tempo that Parks more than matches with his incredible vocals – leaving us to wonder why he wasn't a bigger hard soul singer in the 60s! Gino's also great on "For This I Thank ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
