Ernie Hawks & The Soul InvestigatorsScorpio Walk/Message Of Love ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little theme song for Ernie Hawks & The Soul Investigators – a groove that's got all the biting 70s funk elements you might guess from the "Scorpio" name – but at a pace that's kind of a fast-walking sort of groove! There's fuzzy bassline that chugs along in a ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A hard-smoking set of female funk – with backing from the mighty Osaka Monaurail combo!

A very cool remake of this cut from Sharon Jones – produced by Ticklah here with a sweetly dubby vibe!
