Unit BandUnit's Groove/Hand In Hand ... 7-inch
High Jazz (Switzerland), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
The only single we've ever seen from this obscure New Orleans group – a combo who sound a fair bit different than most of the other Crescent City soul you've got in your collection! "Unit's Groove" is an offbeat clubby cut – one that's more like fast ensemble funk, but with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Uptown SyndicateHot Oklahoma Nights EP (2 x 7 inch) ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2 x 7 inch ... $19.99
Fast-riffing funk from the Uptown Syndicate – maybe one of the few funk bands we've ever heard from the Oklahoma scene – and certainly one of the grooviest!

UsLet's Do It Today/Peace ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A really righteous little track – one that's got a message that's as might as its groove! There's a bassy bottom throughout "Let's Do It Today" – one that gives the tune a dark, moody feel at the start – the really sends things home once it gets funky – packing ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

ValdonsWhatcha Gonna Do/Stop, Wait A Minute Girl ... 7-inch
Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy ... $5.99
"Whatcha Gonna Do" is a real killer – a harmony soul stepper, but one with this super-hard punch on the downbeat – so that the whole thing hits with the fierceness of a funk track, even though it's got a sublime mellow feel throughout! The harmonies are really great, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Valentines/Ohio PlayersBreakaway/Love Slipped Through My Fingers ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1967/1970. New Copy ... $8.99
"Breakaway" is a killer – a tune that leaps into the groove right at the start, and explodes with both super-tight instrumentation and soaring harmonies from The Valentines! The Ohio Players take off themselves on the flipside – in a groove that's more Detroit Northern Soul ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Pat Van DykeLet the Horns Blow EP ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
Pat Van Dyke definitely lets the horns blow here – a trumpet, tenor, and trombone – often working together in the frontline, in a way that echoes the old school sound of the JBs – while Pat Van Dyke lays down a set of more contemporary breaks and beats! The mix of studio rhythms ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $7.99
Two versions of "Tanganica" – a groovy Brazilian track from the end of the 60s! Luis Carlos Vinhas takes the track in a nicely jazzy mode – using wordless female vocals that drift over the top of the sweet grooves on piano and percussion – sounding a bit cool, until ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Wake & BakeFunky Blue Beard/Funkie Pie ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2007. New Copy ... $7.99
These guys may wake and bake, but their music sure doesn't show any signs of it – because the groove here is uptight and funky, and nod the head-nodding sound you might think from the group's name! "Funky Blue Beard" is a romping little instrumental that's halfway between mod soul ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Zudan/Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Green power never sounded so funky before – a monstrous bit of funk in the hands of Sid Sidney & The Belaires – who groove the tune with this bassline that's ready to blow out the speakers right from the very first note – peppered with this fast-snapping funky drum, and loads ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dionne WarwickThis Empty Place/Wishin & Hopin ... 7-inch
Scepter, Mid 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $19.99
A very early Scepter single by Dionne Warwick – so early that the label put "This Empty Place" on the a-side, even though "Wishin & Hopin" went onto be the hit! "Empty Place" has a fuller sound than the usual Warwick mode – still in a Bacharach & ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gene Washington & The IronsidesNext To You/I Still Love Them All ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
Righteous funk from Gene Washington – a tune that's almost got the progressive, political vibe of some of the hippest work from the early 70s – with a raw mix of vocals and groove that would be right at home on Curtom Records! The flipside's bit more mellow – the mighty nice ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
