CapitolsZig-Zagging/I Got To Handle It ... 7-inch
Karen, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Excellent work from one of the best Detroit groups of the 60s! Both tracks move way past their "Cool Jerk" hit – but still have the same fire and soul of that one. Ollie McLaughlin produced, and the whole thing swings nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Vinyl has a drillhole through the deadwax.)

Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
James Carr may not have cut the famous version of "These Arms Of Mine" – but he does a superb job here on the classic – really hitting the tune with his best deep soul energy, and maybe even a bit more sadness than on the Otis Redding hit! "Let's Face Facts" is ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bernadette CarrollLaughing On The Outside/Heavenly ... 7-inch
Numero, Early 60s. New Copy ... $2.99
Sweet girl pop from Bernadette Carroll! "Laughing On The Outside" is the kind of weepy gem that might have been recorded by Joanie Sommers – but handled here with a nicely indie vibe that has spare strings moving nicely next to Bernadette's blue-tinged vocals, and a nice spoken bit ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Channel 3Sweetest Thing/Someone Else's Arms ... 7-inch
Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
These guys are a great little vocal group from the glory days of Brunswick. They never cut a full LP, but this is an excellent little single that's got two great sides. "Sweetest Thing" is a nice loping groover – a bit like work by The Artistics, with a similar flair for a hook. ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chicago GangstersI Choose You/Don't Be Gone ... 7-inch
Gold Plate, Mid 70s. Very Good ... $14.99
Nice stuff! Although the Chicago Gangsters are more known as a funky group, this single highlights two sides of their more mellow material – which is great! "I Choose You" is the famous Willie Hutch cut off The Mack, filtered through a rawer New Jersey style of soul. "Don't ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sanity/Pepite (Switzerland), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A sweet modern soul stepper – a cut that's been lost for years, and is definitely one of those rare gems worth discovering! "What More Can I Say" has this jazzy vibe that comes from sweet guitar stepping over the midtempo groove – while a warm vocal group harmonizes with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Four Flies (Italy), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $19.99
Always-great 70s music from Stelvio Cipriani – the Italian soundtrack maestro who got his start a bit later than some of his contemporaries, but followed through with a range of amazing sounds in the decade!

Jimmy Soul ClarkTell Her/Va Ya Man ... 7-inch
Cotillion, 1972. Very Good+ ... $19.99
"Tell Her" is a hip little number from Jimmy – later than his 60s work, but with a hip swinging Northern Soul groove that's really great. Ollie McLaughlin produced the cut – and it's right up there with his best late 60s Detroit work. "Va Ya Man" is more of a 70s ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ ClashRock The Casbah/Long Time Jerk ... 7-inch
Epic, 1982. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Some of the most dancefloor-oriented work the Clash ever recorded – and though "Rock The Casbah" may well have been the biggest hit ever by the group it's a darn catchy little tune with a Middle East theme that was kind of kitschy at the time, but more relevant than ever now! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sonji Clay was the wife of Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay), and she cut a few very nice soul singers in the Chi soul scene of the late 60s. "Nobody" is one of her best sides, and has a nice loping groove that sounds like it could have been on a Barbara Acklin album. "Here ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
