Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandJungle Fever/Tender Trap ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $7.99
A sweet steel band cover of the funky classic "Jungle Fever" – that great groove you'll know from the famous original by Chakachas – served up here with even more of a funky drum break on the intro, and the added charm of funky steel drums! Those drums sound equally great on ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Record Shack (Austria), 2013. New Copy (pic cover)... $3.99
A great return to form for the legendary Sidney Barnes – known best as a onetime member of both Rotary Connection and the P-Funk universe – but working here with great small combo backing from the Speedometer combo!

BocoRunning The Mardi Gras/Smile ... 7-inch
Magnetic/Big Crown, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $7.99
Not the New Orleans soul you'd expect – and instead a tune with a nicely muted groove – these cool rattling drums at the bottom, which are topped by an equally cool echoey vocal on the top – a male lead singer with a chorus in the backdrop, but all recorded with an unassuming ...

Charles Bradley & LaRose JacksonLuv Jones/Change Change Change ... 7-inch
Dunham, 2014. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A sweet funky number from Charles Bradley – done in duet with Larose Jackson, and with almost a deeper feel than some of Bradley's other work! The vocals move with the rhythms in this great way – less harmonies than each singer at the same time, then breaking out into their own verses ...

Charles Bradley & The BulletsThis Love Ain't Big Enough For The Two Of Us/(She's Got) Twilight Eyes ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2005. New Copy ... $4.99
Bang! This one starts like a mofo – hard drums rattling in a monster break, and really setting the scene for Charles stark and soulful lyrics. The tune rattles along with some super-tight guitar – riffing away next to the bass in a double-time groove that's immediately gripping – ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Budos BandBurnt Offering/Seizure ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2014. New Copy ... $5.99
Sweet funk from the Budos Band, topped by a bit of fuzz as well – a surprising shift on the excellent "Burnt Offering" – which begins almost like some electro horror soundtrack cut, before launching into some heavy drums and sweet riffing guitar! The tune's a great shift for ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

ConSoul feat Herb LarkinsI Need You/Ball Of Confusion ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
Herb Larkins adds some great vocals to "I Need You" here – kind of a sweetly-tripping vocal that moves over the top in a really heady way – while the group work some magical fuzz and funk on guitar and organ! That approach gets even better on the flipside – a righteous ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

EphemeralsThings/Loving Guaranteed ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 7.98
A nice blend of funk and mellow soul from The Ephemerals – a bit of a change of pace for the deep funk loving Colemine label! "Things" kicks off with somewhat subdued instrumentation, mostly vocals and piano, before a deeper groove settles, coming close to a stripped down soul jazz ...

Fat NightThings You Do (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A wicked slow funk number from Fat Night – haunting, moody, and very very compelling! There's a slightly trippy feel to the track – maybe from the heavy echo used on the vocals – but the core groove of stepping guitar and drums almost takes us back to the best mellow harmony cuts ...

Hi Fly OrchestraHi Fly Stomp/Gettin Down ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2008. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Jazzy grooves from this up-and-coming combo! "Hi Fly Stomp" is hardly the heavy-footed number you might guess from the title – as the cut moves and grooves with a really fluid feel – a quick-tempo blend of tight horn riffing and snapping bass/drum rhythms! "Getting ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hi Fly OrchestraMo Slow/Sweet Honey Bee ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2006. New Copy ... $7.99
Leave it to Tramp Records to make our turntable happy – because both cuts here are totally great! "Mo Slow" is a snapping little jazz number that feels like it was lifted from a mid 60s Lee Morgan album – less the deep funk that the label first gave us years back – and ...

James Hunter(Baby) Hold On/Carina ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $5.99 8.99
A pair of great numbers from the James Hunter Six! "(Baby) Hold On" is mighty title track to Daptone LP that serves as a tight, perfect modern take raw mid 60s R&B on the instrumental tip – with Jame's voice achingly genuine as can be. The flip "Carina" is a wonderful ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

In Motion CollectiveJesse's Jing/MTA ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. Near Mint- ... $1.99
There's a great break at the beginning of this one – the kind that you'd be more likely to find in the middle of a tune, as a breakdown – but which almost makes this one feel like you're starting out with the funkier "part 2" of the tune! The cut's an instrumental with some ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jive TurkeysReggie/Duck's Dirge ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2014. New Copy ... $4.99
The Jive Turkeys do "The Reggie" here – a quick-stepping groove that mixes these sweet skittish drums with a bold horn section, tight guitar, and some mighty nice Hammond! The tune bumps along quickly and only gains energy towards the end – a flurry of instrumental power with ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jungle FireFirewalker/Chalupa ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99
Fast guitar steps out quick on "Firewalker" – setting a groove that's followed by fast congas and some heavy riffing horns – all burning together with just the right sort of intensity you'd guess from the group's name! "Chalupa" continues with a sweet tropical ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Chico Mann creates some nicely dope beats here – laidback, but still totally funky and laced with sweet keyboards – perfect for bringing out the most soulful currents in the vocals of Kendra Morris! The flipside features an instrumental – which seems to have even more sweet keys ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funk Night, 2015. New Copy ... $6.99
M-Tet take on Charles Wright's funky classic "Express Yourself" – and they give the tune an even funkier, harder breaking drum at the start!

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!

Rugged NuggetsYo Todo Tu Yo/Tsunami ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99
A cool little groove from this mysterious funky combo! "Yo Todo Tu Yo" has a slight Latin vibe – as you might expect from the title – but is also this hip midtempo funk number done with snapping drums and watery keyboards – kind shimmering next to the tight breaks, ...

Dunham, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
The Sha La Das do it again – and give us some great harmony soul that lives up to the best group soul modes of the late 60s and early 70s!
