✨✧ Dinosaur L (Arthur Russell)In The Corn Belt (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Sleeping Bag/Get On Down, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 9.98
Spacey post disco dancefloor genius from Arthur Russell and Dinosaur L – the slow-building stormer "In The Corn Belt" – mixed by Larry Levan! Part 1 is on the A-side and Part 2 is on the flip – and the track builds from an atmospheric layer of keys into a heavily ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dinosaur L (Arthur Russell)Go Bang! (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Sleeping Bag/Get On Down, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 9.98
A spacey disco classic! "Go Bang" is a wonderful tune – with a jaunty vocal refrain that's laid over some off-kilter keyboard rhythms infused with bass. Arthur Russell produced and Francois K mixed – and this great vinyl single features the complete cut – Part 1 on one ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Queen YahnaAin't It Time (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
P&P, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 7.98
A real club stormer! Queen Yahna has a deep rich voice, in the tradition of the best Miami soul divas – and it's nicely situated in a classic club groove, augmented by congas and cowbells, with great production by Capraquarius! The vocal chorus is soulful and catchy – and the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Archie SheppAttica Blues/Quiet Dawn (Japanese Record Day release) ... 7-inch
Impulse/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy (pic cover)... $22.99
Two righteous tracks from Archie Shepp – served up here on a limited edition 45! "Attica Blues" might be the closest thing that Archie ever got to cutting a funk tune – thanks to some great wah-wah guitar in the groove – but the song also has a completely righteous ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited pressing – done for the Japanese version of Record Store Day!)

✨✧ Terry CallierOrdinary Joe/Look At Me Now (Japanese Record Day release) ... 7-inch
Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1968/1972. New Copy (pic cover)... $22.99
Two great tunes from the legendary Terry Callier – served up here on a limited 45! "Ordinary Joe" is one of the coolest, catchiest songs ever from Terry – a track with a snapping jazzy vibe and a hell of a hook – still as righteous as his more complicated music, but a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A&M/Universal (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy 9 x 7 inch ... $109.99
A fantastic tribute to some of our favorite music of the 60s – the legendary run of A&M sides by the great Roger Nichols! The sounds here are landmark 60s pop that we'd easily rank with the best work by Brian Wilson, Millennium, Gary Usher, Van Dyke Parks, or any of those other ...

✨✧ Danny Barker & His Creole CatsTootie Ma Is A Big Fine Thing/Corinne Died On The Battelfield ... 7-inch
Sinking City, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A romping little single, and one that has a groove that really seems to set the scene for later New Orleans soul! The rhythms almost feel like they're coming from a set of cans instead of conventional drums – and Danny Barker's got a nice edge to his vocals as he sings along with his guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Danny Barker & His Creole CatsIndian Red/Chokco Mo Feendo Hey ... 7-inch
Sinking City, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great example of the kind of cuts that made New Orleans such a distinct musical city in the postwar years! Both tracks have elements that you'd hear in more familiar jump blues or R&B – but they're a lot more raw, a heck of a lot more rhythmic, and have a skittish vibe that's right ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Living FunkLet Your Mind Take The Place Of Your Body (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Funk Music Unlimited, 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The title here reminds us of an early gem by Kool & The Gang – and the fast funk style of the tune does too – except it's a lot more soaring and jammy – with bold horns, a great organ solo, and a massive breakdown that has very cool congas supporting a heavy bass! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Living FunkFools Love/Silver Black Summer Day ... 7-inch
Funk Music Unlimited, 1973. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The group may be named Living Funk, but "Fools Love" is a great bit of mellow sweet soul – a tune that moves at a slow pace that really lets the vocals unfold in a heartbreaking kind of way! The funk returns on the flipside – as "Silver Black Summer Day" has loads ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ David BowieBe My Wife/Art Decade (live Perth 1978) (pic disc) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, 1977/1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Fantastic work from the Berlin period of David Bowie – one of his few catchy tunes from the time, backed with an unreleased live recording! "Be My Wife" is fantastic – not only does the tune have all the darkness of the Heroes/Low period, but it also has a surprisingly ... (Rock, Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bob & Gene/InversionsIt's Not What You Know (It's Who You Know)/Version ... 7-inch
Daptone, Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.98
A sweet take on this tune by Bob & Gene – given a Jamaican groove on both sides, thanks to help from The Inversions! The main cut bubbles along with a bit of a rocksteady vibe next to the duo's vocals – still very much the main song at the core, but augmented with a Kingston soul ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Almeta LattimoreThese Memories/Oh My Love ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A beautifully soulful track from Almeta Lattimore – an obscure Detroit singer, but a great one too! "These Memories" has a warmly mellow feel, but it still moves a bit too – with a full sense of sound and style that reminds us a lot of Gloria Scott at her best! "Oh My ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ 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! The track's got a thumping, stomping kind of groove that really gets going from the start – and the vocal hook is a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Linda CliffordMarch Across Land/Only Fooling Myself ... 7-inch
Paramount/Expansion (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite tracks ever from Chicago soul singer Linda Clifford – a mellow bit of funk written and produced by Leroy Hutson – and quite different than any of Linda's later clubby work! In fact, the whole thing's got a righteous, positive vibe – one that really feels ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lou Lawton/Walter WilsonKnick Knack Patty Wack/Love Keeps Me Crying ... 7-inch
Wand/Outta Sight (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two 60s stormers! "Knick Knack Patty Wack" is a wicked little groove – atune that begins with just handclaps and vocals at the start, then rolls into a vamping soul style that's completely outta sight – and which really fits the playful lyrics of the song! The flipside ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Soul SearchersBlow Your Whistle/Ashley's Roach Clip ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Two of the greatest cuts ever from the Soul Searchers – back to back on a funky 45! "Blow Your Whistle" is a killer – an example of that tight, hard funk sound that would make the group a huge influence on the GoGo scene in years to come. And "Ashley's Roachclip" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Simpson UniquityRunning Away (funky vibes, Diplomats Of Soul dub) ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great remake of one of the biggest cuts ever from the legendary Roy Ayers – done here with a version that's got even more vibes than the original! In fact, the core groove is very much like the Ayers recording, but the cut soon moves into loads of jazzy vibes – and also has a great ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ MagnumEvolution (Beats Edit)/It's The Music That Makes Us Do It ... 7-inch
Phoenix/Jamie, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 12.98
One of the most legendary tracks ever from Philly's Magnum – a well-rounded bit of funky percussion, tight horns, and these electric piano lines that feel more Nigerian than the usual American funk of the time! This edit brings up the beats a bit more, but leaves the core groove nicely ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
