CapitolsZig-Zagging/I Got To Handle It ... 7-inch
Karen, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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

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

Goldwax, Late 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Fantastic work by James Carr! "To Love Somebody" may well be the best deep soul cover of the Bee Gees' surprise hit – done here by James in a sad, spare version that's perfect for his crackling southern soul vocals! "These Ain't Raindrops" is an equally great number ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Numero, Early 60s. New Copy ... $2.99
Sweet girl pop from Bernadette Carroll!

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.

Gene Chandler takes on James Brown – doing an amazing job with the Godfather's classic "There Was A Time" – served up at the same frenetic pace as the original!

Two rare soul tracks – back to back on a sweet 7" single! "Cross My Heart" is a different version of the Billy Stewart tune – done here by the "Channels 4" in this very unusual group soul mode – kind of harmony soul, but very rough around the edges, with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of the blueprints of hip hop!

Gold Plate, Mid 70s. Very Good ... $19.99
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

A mighty sweet groove from Chuck Cissel – a singer who's got a way of soaring with the groove – which is an approach that works perfectly here!

"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

"Falling In Love" is a nice sweet soul cut with a slow tempo, and has sort of a Brunswick soul sound to it. We don't know much about these guys, and have never seen an album by them, so this might be the only track out there. 7-inch, Vinyl record

The a-side's a so-so uptempo groover, but the flipside's the real deal, with heavenly harmony vocals, in the band's best tradition! "How Can I Pretend" is a great one, with that kind of raw east coast harmony sound that still sends us to the heavens after all these years! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eddie & ErnieIndication/Nice To Be Near ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
Two rare tracks from a deep soul duo who've finally gotten their due over the years – thanks to the reissue efforts of Ace/Kent Records! "Indication" is an upbeat groover with kind of a Northern vibe – originally only issued in England, too! "Nice To Be Near" is a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dee EdwardsPut The World On Hold/Put Your Love On The Line ... 7-inch
Cotillion/Expansion (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy ... $11.99
Two great tracks from Dee Edwards – from a time when the Detroit singer was really getting a chance to shine! "Put The World On Hold" has a sweet lyric over a soaring groove – not entirely clubby, maybe more modern soul overall – with a slightly complex set of changes ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jackie Edwards & SoulmakersVamp/Let Me Love You ... 7-inch
Daran, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Excellent trippy instrumentals from Chicago! "The Vamp" has some great chromatic guitar – a bit like Cal Green, with touches of Wes Montgomery – over a hard rolling organ on the beat groove. Tasty stuff – the kind of single that would blow the speakers off your jukebox ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

El ChicleLa La La/Streaking A Go Go ... 7-inch
Shakat, 1974. Near Mint- ... $0.99
Very cool single by this obscure Euro groove group. "La La La" has a loping sexy bassline, in kind of a Frenchy sort of way – and it's slowly funky, with a chorus that goes (what else?) "la la la". The flipside's a bit more trashy, but the single's a nice one, and ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

EL V & The GardenhouseEl Doctor/Tamarita ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. Sealed (pic cover)... $4.99
"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe! The percussion is upbeat, the horns punch along with the groove, and the rolling lyrics are nice and compelling – and the flipside ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ EmotionsSo I Can Love You/Got To Be The Man ... 7-inch
Volt, 1969. Very Good ... $3.99
Two great tracks from the "Blind Alley" era! "So I Can Love You" has a fantastic sound – with these slow funky beats underneath a madly riffing organ, dipping and turning as the girls' vocals come in to sweeten up the whole thing! "Got To Be The Man" has a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ EmperorsKarate/I've Got To Have Her ... 7-inch
Mala, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Hiiiiiiiii-ya! "Karate" is a killer – the standout cut from The Emperors, and a fast free groover with a raw 60s party sound. There's a bubbling organ that runs over fast skipping drums – shouted vocals that blow out over the top, and a catchy breakdown in the chorus that ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

It's Soul Time, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
Really great work from Ernest Ernie & The Sincerities – one of the few contemporary groups who can get a vintage soul style so right – so much so, the record easily blends with some of the rare reissues we've also loved on the It's Soul Time label! The production is great – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ EscortsLook Over Your Shoulder/By The Time I Get To Phoenix ... 7-inch
Althia, 1973. Very Good ... $4.99
Wonderful soul from this excellent east coast group! "Look Over Your Shoulder" is the group's version of the O'Jays' hit – and we like it better than the original, because it's a bit rawer, and almost a bit more honest. "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" is pretty darn nice, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Moira, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Whomp! The Fabulous Counts are one of the first bands any of us started collecting on funky 45s – and every single one of their early records is a gem! "Lunar Funk" is a rolling organ number that's probably one of the band's most famous numbers, but even so, you just about never ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Moira, Early 70s. Good+ ... $14.99
Monster funk – and one of the all-time great funky 45s! "Jan Jan" has this sinister mix of horns and organ that's never been duplicated again – one that pounds away for a very unique intro, before guitar twangs in and sets the whole thing rocking! "Girl From Kenya" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

SOUL, 1970. Very Good ... $4.99
2 beautiful little tracks from one of Motown's least-remembered singers! The single's an early one by Yvonne, and we don't think it's on her only LP. The a-side's a nice mellow soul ballad, with this cool fast bongo sound in the background, and stellar vocals from Yvonne that put the whole thing ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
