Grady Tate/Gary McFarlandSlaves (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Skye, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
The tune's kind of a slow-building soul track – making good use of Grady's baritone vocals to give the tune a nice solid feel. The instrumental by Gary McFarland is actually even better – starting slow, but then hitting some nice funkier jazz parts in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Howard TateHow Come My Bull Dog Don't Bark/Ain't Nobody Home ... 7-inch
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Two lesser-known numbers by late 60s soul genius Howard Tate! "How Come" is a bluesy track, arranged by Artie Butler – and "Ain't Nobody Home" is a catchy little number with a better hook, and the kind of descending blue vocals that always made Howard sound so great! 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Howard TateMy Soul's Got A Hole In It/It's Too Late ... 7-inch
Turntable, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Sublime soul from Howard Tate – and 2 great tracks from his years with Lloyd Price! "My Soul's Got A Hole" is a wonderful mellow track that really lets Tate burn on the vocals – deeply soulful, with a sound that almost surpasses his Verve work. "It's Too Late" is ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gloria TaylorYou Got To Pay The Price/Loving You & Being Loved By You (Silver Fox pressing) ... 7-inch
Silver Fox, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Great stuff from Gloria Taylor – one of the greatest singers who never got her due! "You Got To Pay The Price" has a wonderful hook, and a loping groove that's part Chicago/part late Memphis. "Loving You" has a pretty funky groove, with a nice sing-song horn/piano riff ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Koko TaylorMighty Love/Instant Everything ... 7-inch
Yambo, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An obscure single from Koko – featuring 2 tracks written by Willie Dixon! "Mighty Love" is a slow bluesy number – a bit like Etta James, with horns sweeping up in the background, and a chorus supporting Koko on the lyrics. The real charmer, though, is "Instant ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

TeakwoodCan You Dig It/Suddenly You're My Life ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... $3.99
We can definitely dig it – especially when the grooves are this great! "Can You Dig It" has this long instrumental intro – jazzy, but with complex changes that are quite unique for a funky 45 – which then open up to this masterful male soul vocal – full of ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ TemptationsDon't Let The Joneses Get You Down/Since I've Lost You ... 7-inch
Gordy, 1969. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The Temptations at their funky best – and an amazing tune! Norman Whitfield manages to pack more energy into the tasty 4 minute run of "Joneses" than Nasa could into the entire Apollo moon shot – and the force of the tune is simply incredible! The message is great, the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Henry Thomas & RiseMy Dreams Are Clouded/Don't Wait Too Long ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99
A track that's a lot more upbeat and groovy than you might expect from its title – sweet 80s keyboards and beats – which really set up an excellent groove for the group's vocals! The harmonies are almost old school, but the style of the groove is sweet electro funk – which really ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Glades, 1972. Very Good+ ... $4.99
2 of Timmy's best early cuts, together on one original 45! "Why Can't We Live Together" is a breathtakingly sad and eerie song – spare electric drumbeats, moody keyboards, and one of the greatest mellow soul lyrics ever! "Funky Me" isn't that funky – but is still ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
