Late, but great work from the Muscle Shoals scene – two rare tracks that were never issued after being cut at the studio in 1983 – issued here for the first time ever! "Freak Call" is a bass-heavy bit of early 80s funk – as you might guess from the "freak" in ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tommy TuckerAll About Melanie/Alimony ... 7-inch
Checker, Mid 60s. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A really rollickin tune from Tommy! "All About Melanie" is a hip instrumental – blues at the base, but done in a style that mixes guitar and electric and acoustic piano – styling the groove up really strangely, and giving the track an almost jazzy appeal! "Alimony" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A blue-eyed soul classic from John Valenti – despite the black and white eye image on the cover! "Anything You Want" has a warm jazzy groove, great keyboards, and the kind of cresting vocals you'd expect to hear on one of Stevie Wonder's best cuts from the 70s!

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!

Warner, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Two nice slices of stoner funky soul from this great LA outfit! "Light My Fire" is done in a nice spacey way – and "Till You Get Enough" is a slowly chugging groover, with a great party feel, and some excellent rolling basslines! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Timmion (Finland), 2017. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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! There's a great drum break, offbeat organ, and these horn blasts that make the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Timmion (Finland), 2018. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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

Andre WilliamsPearl Time/Soul Groove ... 7-inch
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! "Breaking Point" begins with fast fast choppy guitar – riffing away madly, while horns blare over the top, and Johnny sings in a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Some of the more obscure material from Jackie's Chicago years, recorded with Sonny Sanders arrangements, and production by Carl Davis. "I Don't Want To Lose" is a nice loping groover, of the sort that Gene Chandler could handle quite nicely at the same time. The flipside's a bit more ... 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 ... $11.99
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

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! As with that set, there's a real 21st Century vibe here – a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

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!

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!
