Antonio Adolfo & A Brazuka/Erasmo Carlos & Os TremGloria Glorinha/Coqueiro Verde ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweetly dancing groover from Antonio Adolfo – a tune that has a female voice over jazzy rhythms, a lot like Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66 – but with the weirder, wilder touches that make Adolfo's music so great! The flipside features one of the funkiest cuts ever from Erasmo Carlos ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1969/1975. New Copy ... $7.99
Two Ethio funk tracks with a heck of a lot of power! Mahmoud Ahmed is on the a-side – singing in that beautifully melancholy style of his, while the backing group his this funky groove with chunky organ and some nicely peppered horns, too!

✨✧ Anatoly IceSomething Happened (2Me)/Light ... 7-inch
Cold Busted, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Tight, breakbeat funk style cuts from Russian producer & DJ Anatoly Ice! "Something Happened (2ME)" is laced with old school funky horn and vocal samples, really tightly punctuated by hip hop beats.

AntibalasDirty Money/AWOL ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99
Two stormers from Antibalas! "Dirty Money" is one of their boldest cuts in years – a tune that leaps right out of the grooves, right from the start – thanks to plenty of searing Afro Funk rhythms, and even moreso to a wicked Hammond part that burns beautifully for the first ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

ApothekeHi Baby Out/War ... 7-inch
Black Pearl (Germany), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $18.99
There's a fantastic funky bassline on "Hi Baby Out" – a groove that's popped, but in a really offbeat way – and used to set fire to the equally-strange sing-songy lyrics of the tune! Meanwhile, lots of instruments take solos – including a sweet riffing guitar, and a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jon Appleton & Don CherryDon/Jon ... 7-inch
Cacophonic (UK), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)... $7.99

Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
A sweet steel band cover of the funky classic "Jungle Fever" – that great groove you'll know from the famous original by Chakachas – served up here with even more of a funky drum break on the intro, and the added charm of funky steel drums! Those drums sound equally great on ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
Two great cuts from one of the funkiest steel bands of all time! Bacao Rhythm & Steel served up a great version of "Love Like This" – one that starts with this bumping bassline that's totally wicked, and snapped with a breaking drum – setting up a groove that's almost old ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ 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! We hardly ever find gems this good though – as "Pimp" has these slow-snapping drums that make ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jim BennettYou Win Some, You Lose Some (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Al & The Kidd, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A sweet bit of GoGo funk from the early 80s – a tune that's nice and lean overall, with a vibe that almost mixes in some electro soul as well – thanks to some heavy beats at the bottom, sweet bassline in the middle, and nice keyboard washes on the top! All instrumental, with a good ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bob & Gene/InversionsI Can Be Cool/Version ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
A reworking of this classic harmony tune from the team of Bob & Gene – given extra backing on this version from The Inversions – who mix in lots of dubby, Kingston-styled sounds!

Miles BonnyHello Jesus/High Enough ... 7-inch
Plane Jane, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
A funky spiritual tune from Miles Bonny – maybe one of his best tracks in years, and a tune that blends hip hop production with old school gospel lyrics! Miles has a nicely understated approach that's right on the money – and which makes for no fake modes at all – and the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Charles BradleyChange For The World/Revelations ... 7-inch
Dunham/Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
Mighty righteous sounds from Charles Bradley – a strong message-oriented cut that's set to a slow funk groove – one that steps boldly and proudly, but never too fast – which lets Bradley really take off on his vocal lead, and build things up wonderfully towards the end! "Reve ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lucky Brown & The SGsMesquite Beat/Justice ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2017. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
One of the headiest cuts we've ever heard from Lucky Brown – mostly because The SGs have hit this righteous blend of funk and spiritual jazz – almost exotic in parts, but still very grooving overall – but with lots of room for great solos from the group members! "Justice" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Otis Brown & The DelightsI've Got Another/Southside Chicago ... 7-inch
Numero, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
A really moody cut from Chicago's Otis Brown – a groove that starts out slow, with a bit of conga in the mix – at a tempo that's somewhere in the speed of "Elephant Walk"! Otis Brown sings lead vocals, and gets some mellow backup from the rest of the Delights – and the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A pair of aural psych funk severe weather events from the mighty Budos Band!

Budos BandUp From The South/TIBWF ... 7-inch
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

Camp LoLuchini aka This Is It/Swing ... 7-inch
Profile/Get On Down, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Follow up to the classic "Coolie High" and maybe one of the last genuinely classic singles ever released on Profile! In the tradition of Main Source and Digable Planets, nice mellow but still energetic production using a nice Herb Alpert-style brass loop and straight, uplifting lyrics. ...

Jo Ann CampbellI Changed My Mind Jack/I Really Really Love You ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99
A great romping groover from the queen of popcorn soul – a tune that has the same sort of vibe as Ray Charles "Hit The Road Jack", but moves at a clip that's quicker – and maybe catchier too! Campbell seems to have a male singer helping along, which gives the tune a mighty ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
