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! There's more great organ on "Ene Negn Bay ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Quetcy Alma/CafeOh Poor Me/Identify Yourself ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $7.99
Quetcy Alma's got a name you might find tricky to pronounce – but that's hardly going to matter once you hear the groove in this tune – a bumping, loping style that almost more late 60s Latin soul than you'd guess from the date – and which makes a nicely odd mix with Alma's ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jon Appleton & Don CherryDon/Jon ... 7-inch
Cacophonic (UK), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)... $7.99
Never-heard work from the legendary team of Jon Appleton and Don Cherry – music that was recorded for the Human Music album the pair issued on Flying Dutchman – but issued here for the first time ever!

Family Groove, Early 80s. New Copy 2 x 7 Inch (pic cover)... $12.99
A mighty sweet groove from Aurra – a lost track from the duo's post-Salsoul years, and a cut with a wonderfully lean approach! As with Aurra's better-known cuts, there's a great sense of a hook in here – although the whole tune's nicely understated, and far from commercial styles of ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Manuel Azevedo Quartet/EsperantoFutebol De Bar/Latin Strut – Black Feeling 3 Sampler ... 7-inch
Freestyle (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
Two great grooves that mix together Latin and funk! Manuel Azevedo kicks things off with the beautiful "Futebol De Bar" – a cut that has batucada drums at the start, then leaps into these vibrant piano parts that dance and fly around the grooves in a wonderful way – with a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

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 ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca/Mr Funky Samba ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
Two fantastic funky cuts from this legendary Brazilian group! "Maria Fumaca" has fast-changing funky jazz rhythms that are completely outta sight – almost more a 70s Bay Area jazz funk groove overall, complete with great horns and keyboards! "Mr Funky Samba" is another ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
Two killer slices of Brazilian funk! The instrumental "Miss Cheryl" is one of the trademark tunes of Banda Black Rio – a cut with these sharp, jazzy changes that are completely amazing – and which easily have BBR rivaling the sound of Earth Wind & Fire at their best! The ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Athens Of The North (UK), 1979/1981. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
One of Ray Barretto's funkiest cuts ever – his great Latin remake of Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradies" – served up here with plenty of snapping percussion, and a great blend of acoustic piano and electric keyboards! The set's backed by "Mambotango" – a track ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Ethel BeattyI Know You Care/It's Your Love ... 7-inch
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $8.99
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

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! The main cut has the duo sounding like a harmony team from the early rocksteady years – 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

Secret Life Of Sound, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99
Excellent split single pairing up a couple of the finest abstract beats maestros in the east or west – Jazzy Sport label veteran and Japanese scene heavy Budamunk, and the ever-adventurous, never predictable Radius, representing Chicago!

Budos BandBurnt Offering/Seizure ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2014. New Copy ... $2.99
Sweet funk from the Budos Band, topped by a bit of fuzz as well – a surprising shift on the excellent "Burnt Offering" – which begins almost like some electro horror soundtrack cut, before launching into some heavy drums and sweet riffing guitar! The tune's a great shift for ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A pair of aural psych funk severe weather events from the mighty Budos Band! "Maelstrom" kicks off with swirling bit of organ, presaging the funky onslaught to come – with soulful horn blasts and and impeccably rhythmic sensibility that keeps it from flying out of control.
