B-Side PlayersAll I Want/La Vuelta ... 7-inch
Afro Baile, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99
A warm mix of funk, reggae, and a bit of hip hop – served up in a tune that comes across with a crackling sort of freshness overall! Lyrics are a mix of sung chorus and spoken verses – and the groove has a rising/falling horn passage that really underscores the meaning of the tune! ...

✨✧ Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandPIMP/Police In Helicopter ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A wicked set of funky steel drums – a bad-stepping number from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, and just the kind of hard funk cut we're always digging for on steel drum records! We hardly ever find gems this good though – as "Pimp" has these slow-snapping drums that make ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Andrea BalducciSpooky/Hurt So Bad ... 7-inch
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy ... $4.99
Two of the coolest cuts from Andrea Balducci's excellent album on Schema – a slow, slinky version of "Spooky", with sweet Fender Rhodes under the lyrics – and a super-dope funk remake of "Hurt So Bad" – with even more Rhodes, and a groove that really beats the ...

Bamma GammaBack To The Zoo/Cannibalism ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
The drums are funky and the guitar is mighty – folded together alongside each other in this mighty nice way – almost with the focused frenzy of a Dennis Coffey funky 45 from way back! "Cannibalism" is cool too – a bit more romping in the groove, but still with lots of ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Basement FreaksAll That Funk!/Calling The Jams ... 7-inch
Boogieburg, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
Fast beats and lots of old-school riffing here – a cut that almost sounds like a deft remix of vintage JBs material – with nicely breaking drums at the bottom, and some tasty horn solos over the top! "Calling The Jams" is more 80s overall – keyboards, basslines, and ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bob & Gene/InversionsIt's Not What You Know (It's Who You Know)/Version ... 7-inch
Daptone, Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.98
A sweet take on this tune by Bob & Gene – given a Jamaican groove on both sides, thanks to help from The Inversions! The main cut bubbles along with a bit of a rocksteady vibe next to the duo's vocals – still very much the main song at the core, but augmented with a Kingston soul ...

Brothers NylonYou Got A Tiger?/Does The Tiger Got You? ... 7-inch
Mocambo (Germany), 2013. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A sinister, snakey groove from the Brothers Nylon – one that mixes some slight exotic phrasing with an old school funky mode – in a way that only gets more confident as the groove goes on! The flipside is even cooler – a variation of this approach that has some really offbeat ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Budos BandMagus Mountain/Vertigo ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 7.99
One of those funky 45s you can tell will be great – just by looking at the surface of the grooves! The tune starts out all compressed and trebly at the start – with fuzzy guitar over a spare rhythm, which then gets full and funky once the cut gets going – but then takes this ...

Budos BandUp From The South/TIBWF ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2005. New Copy ... $4.99
The first funky outing we've ever heard from The Budos Band – but a really tasty funky set, with a raw and stripped-down feel! "Up From The South" is a chugging, churning mass of snapping drum breaks and scratchy guitar – topped by a well-crafted horn part that comes in as ...

Capriccio, Magnant & AssociatesLocal Government Victory/LGV (Gavel Strike) ... 7-inch
Lugnut Brand, 2017. New Copy ... $7.99
Funky Fender Rhodes galore – a tune that's some great drums to set the groove, then these chunky Rhodes lines that are totally wonderful – warm at the same time they're sounding hard! The flipside is more of the main cut – well worth any sort of "part 2"! (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cold Diamond & MinkQueen Of Soul (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2016. New Copy ... $7.99
A wickedly laid back instrumental – one that has a slow-stepping groove and lots of great electric guitar – taking its time in an extended solo that's more than worth the double parts of the record! The vibe's maybe somewhere in the territory of Eddie Fisher on some of his classic ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Doktu Rhute Muuzic (Roy Hytower)I'm In Your Corner/Tip Jar ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $3.99
Funky new work from Dotku Rhute Muuzic – the artist formerly known as Roy Hytower, who gave us some great funky blues on the Chicago scene of the 70s! The groove here is right up there with Roy's old work – tight, gritty, and a great mix of southern soul elements and west side grit ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

El Michels Affair & The ShacksStrange Boy/No Surprise ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99 9.98
One of the moodiest tracks we've heard from El Michels in a while – and one that gets a nice female vocal in the lead! The core instrumentation has all those great hallmarks of El Michels funk – a slow vibe, and lots of deep currents at the bottom – while the female singer of The ...

El Michels Affair with Lee Fields4th Chamber/Snakes ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
El Michels take it back to basics here – and serve up some wickedly funky sounds on "4th Chamber" – a cut that's got great heavy drums at the bottom, but just the kind of spooky keyboard line you might expect from its Wu-Tang title reference! "Snakes" is quite ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eminent StarsBar Shift/Brown Thang ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $8.99
A fantastic mix of deep soul and hard funk – of the sort we first heard in the early records of Lee Fields! The Eminent Stars here have a great singer on "Bar Shift" – vocalist Bruce James, who brings in a real old school southern style to the lyrics – while the group ...

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 ...

Lee FieldsComing Home/Precious Love ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
"Coming Home" is a warmly funky groove from the great Lee Fields – a cut that seems to equally balance deep soul and sweet soul modes, as Lee himself has been doing on the best of his recent work! There's a great flow to the electric side of the instrumentation – which is ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lee Fields & The ExpressionsNever Be Another You/Lover Man ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
A fantastic cut from Lee Fields – one that begins with almost a Timmy Thomas-style drum machine beat on the intro – then adds in this weeping piano, ala Hi Records, and really blossoms when Lee's deep soul vocals come into play! The flipside features "Lover Man" – a ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lee Fields & The ExpressionsSpecial Night (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
A two-part stunner from Lee Fields & The Expressions – a cut that's every bit as great as their work together on the sublime My World album – delivered in a similiar slow funk mode! The groove is like classic New Jersey soul from the early 70s – rough-edged, but sweet at the ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Georgia Soul CouncilCostanza/Hip Shot ... 7-inch
Hip, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99
Not the "Costanza" you might know from Seinfeld, but a tight funky number from the excellent Georgia Soul Council! The tune's got fast drums mixed with lots of Hammond riffing and tight horns – and the whole group shouts a catchy vocal bit at a few key spots. "Hip Shot" ...
