One of the rawest, raunchiest grooves we've heard from AJ & Co to date – a tune that's got a heavy slow-funk drum part that launches the whole thing along – and some slinky stepping, hard-sung lyrics that almost give the song a pimp walk sort of vibe!

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!

Daptone, 2005. New Copy ... $4.99
The first funky outing we've ever heard from The Budos Band – but a really tasty funky set, with a raw and stripped-down feel! "Up From The South" is a chugging, churning mass of snapping drum breaks and scratchy guitar – topped by a well-crafted horn part that comes in as ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

MGM, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Two excellent funky cuts from Eric Burdon and War! You probably know "Spill The Wine" – the Latin-tinged tune that made all them a lot of money, and which still sounds surprisingly great today – but "Magic Mountain" is also another winner, with a heavy funky beat at ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
We don't know Joe Burrell at all – but he really sounds great here on "There Was A Time" – not the tune that James Brown made big, but instead a very different number – served up with a jazzy flourish, thanks to the orchestrations of Kae Williams! Pookie Hudson is a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Pride/Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 9.98
Two great cuts from the Pride Records label – both hip and funky! "Whatever's Fair" is one of the best-remembered numbers from the Infinity recordings with Billy Butler – work that's got all the soaring soul of his 60s Chicago work, but a more righteous vibe too! "Simple ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Pride/Mr Bongo, 1973/1974. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 9.98
A really cool cut from the soundtrack to Melinda – a "Latino" theme, but one that's got this beautiful funky sitar over stepping beats and piano – almost like a hip hop sample that was waiting 20 years to be discovered, and a very cool instrumental groove! Jimmy Smith ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rickey Calloway & The Soul MotivatorsTell Me (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99
A fresh take on one of the Rickey Calloway classics from years back – snapping drums and full-on funk – a completely heavy-hitting number that rivals the best James Brown work of the early 70s! The track's a smoking cooker that never lets up – from the first rattletrap on the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 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

Numero, Early 60s. New Copy ... $5.99
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

Alvin Cash & The RegistersDoin' The Ali Shuffle/Feel So Good ... 7-inch
Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Alvin Cash pays tribute to Cassius Clay – screaming his way through the cut in a way that pre-dates most other Ali tribute songs, grooving away in that hard funky groove that you'd find on his best 60s work. "Feel So Good" is great, too – a heavy R&B stomper with a "T ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of Alvin's funkiest tracks ever, and a killer groove put together at the end of the 60's with the funky Scott Brothers Orchestra backing him up.

A beautiful tune from The Charmells – one of the lesser-known acts on Stax/Volt in the 60s – but also one of the best! The girls have fantastic harmonies on "I've Done It Again" – a slow-stepping number that has a nicely jazzy flourish at times – quite different ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dave Newman is ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
