✨✧ Ben PiraniLight Of My Life/Dreamin's For Free ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2016. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The first single from neo-classic soul singer Ben Pirani! "Light Of My Life" does a pretty great job of melding old school styles, from organ and hand percussion, to richer, fuller sounds with horns and harmonies – but it's Ben's voice that gives it all the more credibility. "Dr ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The first new songs from Durand Jones & The Indications in a couple years! "You & Me" kicks off with a raw soul guitar before the sweet vocals, deft harmonies and drums kick in and it settles into a natural deep soul gem reminiscient of some of the great rare indie soul singles of ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
(A few more copies are on the way, but this pressing is selling out crazy fast friends...get it while you can!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Harlem Gospel TravelersHe's On Time/Wash Me Lord ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99
A contemporary gospel group, but one that reminds us of those really cool spiritual acts from the New York scene at the 70s – when gospel styles were blending with soul, and coming up with a very righteous new style in the process! "He's On Time" is upbeat, funky, and fantastic ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Black vinyl pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Black Market BrassWar Room/Into The Thick ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99
Funky drums and some mighty nice horns – a real killer from Black Market Brass, and maybe one of their most intense tracks to date! There's almost an Afro Funk vibe here, but the style is even more freewheeling – fast grooves and horns that are incredibly deft, but also have lots of ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ OrgoneBig Day/Hound Dogs ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99
A romping bit of funk from Orgone – a cut that's one of the group's own, but which almost feels like it could have been lifted from an early Funkadelic album – given the bassline, drums, and the way a chorus supports the energy of the lead vocals! "Hound Dogs" is another ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Jr Thomas & The VolcanosWhat A Shame/Brian Wilson ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great mixture of sweet soul and Jamaican groove – and a tune that almost feels like some New Jersey vocal group from the early 70s, working alongside a groove created in Studio One! The tune's got a nicely easygoing, slow-burning vibe – a quality that's increased by the warm organ ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ OrgoneDon't Stop/Powerfeed (Instrumental) ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2014. New Copy ... $5.99
A killer jam from Orgone – like a lost funky gem from the immediate post disco/nascent boogie funk years! Don't worry, "Don't' Stop" is not a indie funk version of the Fleetwood Mac tune, but a tight little tune with a killer bassline, tight drums, and some great soul vocals ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Jungle FireFirewalker/Chalupa ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99
Fast guitar steps out quick on "Firewalker" – setting a groove that's followed by fast congas and some heavy riffing horns – all burning together with just the right sort of intensity you'd guess from the group's name! "Chalupa" continues with a sweet tropical ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Ikebe Shakedown/Jive TurkeysNo Answer ... 7-inch

✨✧ Merced Blue NotesSundown/Whole Lotta Something ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), Early/Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
The Merced Blue Notes were one of the hippest groups working on the Cali scene of the 60s – a cooking combo who had the grit of the R&B club generation, but fused their music with more elements of 60s soul! Both of these numbers are stone stormers that must have really tore up the floor ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Westbound/BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $9.99
Two great tracks from the young Funkadelic – back to back on a single 45! "Can't Shake It Loose" was originally scheduled for release in the late 60s – but canceled at the time – and has a sound that's maybe a bit more 60s soul than some of the group's later work, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art

Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... $11.99
A magnificent track from legendary Detroit producer Dave Hamilton – a gem that lie tucked away in his vaults for many years, but which has gone onto hit great fame, thanks to a recent CD issue!

Big Crown, Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
Two rare grooves from this legendary group! "Sittin On A Red Hot Stove" is a slow-stepping monster – very hard and funky, but moving at a pace that's much more leisurely than anyone who's getting themselves burned on a grill! The tune's got a completely badass vibe that's almost ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandPIMP/Police In Helicopter ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
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!

✨✧ Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandXxplosive/Burn ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Maybe some of the most explosive steel drum sounds you'll ever hope to hear – but that's what we've always expected from the mighty Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band! "Xxplosive" is funky, but in a nice slow-stepping way – with the bassline really carving out the groove, as ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Brother (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunning clubby masterpiece – one of the most soulful singles to come from the P&P studios, and a killer groove with some really wonderful vocals! The track moves along at a slightly mellower clip than the usual P&P groove – a sweet skipping midtempo groove that's flecked ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Nolan PorterKeep On Keeping On/If I Could Only Be Sure ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $9.99
Two rare ones from the early 70s years of Nolan Porter – a time when he was one of the most unusual soul singers around!

Columbia/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Ronnie Laws may have had the first hit version of "Always There", but Willie Bobo's is a great one too – with a slightly Latin tinge that takes the cut to a whole new level, adding in some extra percussion to make its jazz funk grooves stand up on end! "Comin Over Me" is ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Gwen McCraeKeep The Fire Burning/Funky Sensation ... 7-inch
Atlantic/Expansion (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy ... $9.99
A killer single – if only for the b-side! Gwen's version of "Keep The Fire Burning" is fine – but the real winner here is the killer "Funky Sensation" – a snapping little 80s groover that's one of her best cuts ever! The track's a legend – with a big ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Columbia/Expansion (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
Early solo work from Patti Austin – rare material cut for Columbia Records before her late 70s fame! "Are We Ready For Love" soars out of the gate at a level that's almost Northern Soul, but with perhaps a bit more of a righteous undercurrent – which Patti definitely picks up ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Expansion (UK), 1975/1976. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Coke Escovedo always warms our heart with his 70s classic "I Wouldn't Change A Thing" – an amazing track that has a funky fusion flavor and almost a Larry Mizell-styled groove – compressed keyboards and guitar riffing away beautifully next to Coke's conga lines – all ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

80s grooves galore!

✨✧ Pointer Sisters/DriftersSend Him Back/You Got To Pay Your Dues ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1970/1972. New Copy ... $9.99
An early cut from The Pointer Sisters – and much more raw than their crossover hits of later years!

✨✧ Keni BurkeRisin’ To The Top/Hang Tight ... 7-inch
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $9.99
A massive jam from Keni Burke – easily his greatest tune ever, and the kind of track we'd hardly have imagined back when he was a little tyke in the Five Stairsteps!

✨✧ Sylvia StriplinGive Me Your Love/You Can't Turn Me Away ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
Massive! Sylvia Striplin is one of the all time groove favorites – not just because she's been sampled to death, but also because she's got an amazingly captivating style of slinky soul.

Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A hot slice of early 80s, post-disco soul produced by Roy Ayers! On "I Know You Care", Ethyl uses a sexy, breathy, Minnie Riperton kind of approach that accents the deep thumping bass, drums and claps, and the scratchy guitar very nicely! Overall the track has a bit poppier of a sound ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tuxedo work here with Zapp – but at level that has the Troutman legacy very much back in full form!
