BCW, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the best cuts from this hip Philly soul group – given a slight edit by Froz1, who makes things even funkier!

A soulful blend of beats and keys from Jonny Tobin!

Two rare gems from the Westbound Records vaults!

Fast-riffing guitar sets up this groove nicely, and drums follow suit – moving the whole thing at a tight clip that's emphasized once congas come into the mix – while a wah wah guitar line solos over the top!

Timmion (Finland), 2017. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Willie West is a soul singer with a long legacy of his own – but to our ears, the real stars here are Cold Diamond & Mink – whose funky backings make the tune crackle with soul right from the start!

Massive drums really get this one going – a hard, heavy, almost-classic drum break that begins the tune – and sounds great next to the more easygoing vocals of Willie West – as he brings a great deep soul touch to the tune, alongside this floating flute played by Jimi Tenor! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sport, Late 60s. Very Good ... $8.99
Great obscure side by the early king of the funky 45. "Soul Groove"'s a nice deep instrumental with chugging southern guitar and hard piano triplets. "Pearl Time" is the prime Andre Williams cut, though, with his great goofy rhyming vocals and a chanting catchy hook. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Obscure and wonderful! The single's one of the many rare sides produced by Syl Johnson for Twinight, and it's very much in the vein of his own work!

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!

A wonderful reimagining of the music of Thelonious Monk – one that's done in a melange of jazz and contemporary elements – in a style that's very similar to the time that Madlib visited Blue Note over a decade ago!

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!
