Gloria Ann TaylorDeep Inside Of You/World That's Not Real (2018 Black Friday Release) ... 7-inch
Columbia/Nature Sounds, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99
Lost work from Gloria Taylor – singer who's best known for indie sides in the 60s, but who sounds completely fantastic here on a one-off single for Columbia! "Deep Inside You" has this unusual flow – almost stop/start in energy, but with Taylor really soaring out on her ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gloria Ann TaylorLove Is A Hurtin Thing/Brother Less Than A Man (red colored vinyl pressing) ... 7-inch
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $3.99 8.98
Some mighty fierce, almost freaky guitar starts out this rare gem from Gloria Ann Taylor – before these weirdly exotic strings come in and warm things up, then set a course for Taylor's vocals to follow! Guitar returns strongly for this nice trippy solo in the middle – and really makes ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

ThompsonsMessage (Froz1 edit)/I'll Always Love You ... 7-inch
BCW, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
One of the best cuts from this hip Philly soul group – given a slight edit by Froz1, who makes things even funkier! The tune's got this chugging groove and deeper soul group lyrics – almost like early BT Express meeting Norman Whitfield Temptations – but all with a nicely rough ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Four Flies (Italy), 1973. New Copy (pic cover)... $22.99
Piero Umiliani at his funkiest – with two great tracks from the Baba Yaga soundtrack!

Piero UmilianiFate Had Planned It So/Just Tell Me ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1968. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Two great vocal numbers from Piero Umiliani – the kind of strong English language tunes he used to kick off his best soundtracks of the 60s! Both of these were from the film Orgasmo – and Lydia MacDonald does a great job on "Fate Had Planned It So" – a tune that has ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Westbound/Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
Two rare gems from the Westbound Records vaults! "Gonna Spread The News" has a wonderful vibe that's almost like the best early 70s Holland-Dozier-Holland productions – upbeat funky soul, with a really rich set of arrangements – but with a very distinctly personal take on the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chess/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $15.99
Two funky nuggets from the rare album that organist Reuben Wilson cut with a funk group for Chess Records in the 70s! "Got To Get Your Own" is fantastic – with a really unusual rhythm, and a sweet keyboard line that dips along beautifully with the bassline and vocals! "Tight ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Witch DoctorHow Can I Win Your Love/All I Know, I Love You ... 7-inch
Cordial (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
Rare Miami soul from Witch Doctor – a singer who works here in a groove that feels like a more stripped-down approach to the TK Records style from the same scene! By that, we mean that there's a funky current going through the music, but nice and lean – with moogy keyboards that ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Melodies International, Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
Two beautiful tunes from Bobby Wright, both recorded in the mid 70s with a subtle righteous power that's taken many years for the rest of the world to fully appreciate! "Blood Of An American" is a slow-moving track that mostly features the lead vocals over slow-drifting guitar – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Austin Boogie Crew, 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... $3.99 9.99
Beaty, bassy, and pretty darn electric – a great set of tracks that definitely looks at the world of 80s groove with the best vision hindsight has to offer! That is – the music is full of all the best elements of the electro soul generation – but served up without any of the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
