✨✧ Roy AyersCoffy – Coffy Is The Color/Aragon/Brawling Broads/Exotic Dance (2 x 7 inch single set) ... 7-inch
Polydor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1973. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... $21.99 23.98
A totally cool little record – a double 7" single that brings together 4 of the best tracks from the Coffy soundtrack of the 70s – that fantastic blacksplitation film that was Roy Ayers' entry into the genre! All the tracks are great – from the catchy funky soul of the theme, "Coffy Is The Color" – to the tight instrumentation of "Aragon", "Brawling Broads", and "Exotic Dance" – some of the funkiest numbers on the record. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Also available Coffy – Original Soundtrack ... LP 22.99

✨✧ Roy AyersHe's Coming (2 x 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Polydor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1971. New Copy 2 x 7 inch Gatefold (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A special four track, double 7" version of work from He's Coming – one of the rarest and greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – really the beginning of the funk years from Roy Ayers Ubiquity! This one's a totally solid mix of soulful jazz, jazzy soul and righteous funk – and it's straight up wonderful all the way through – with a groove that's hugely influential to say the least! Includes the amazing track "We Live In Brooklyn Baby", which has a slow sample bassline in the intro that's just incredible – plus groovy cuts like the spiritual funk classic "He's a Superstar", "Ain't Got Time", and "Fire Weaver". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Roy AyersMystic Voyage 45 Collection – Brother Green/Black Five/Life Is Just A Moment (Parts 1 & 2) (2 x 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Polydor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1975. New Copy 2 x 7 inch set (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A cool condensation of the legendary Mystic Voyage album from Roy Ayers – a record that really shows him at the turning point! Gone are the trippier jazz funk moments of earlier albums – and in their place are some tight grooves and wonderfully spacey soul. Roy hits the dancefloor with one of his first uptempo funk numbers "Brother Green", a catchy groover with lots of clavinet, and the massive "Life Is Just A Moment", a storming 2-part number that rolls along with a pounding almost house-like groove. This 2 x 7" single set also features the great "Black Five" – a funky number that could almost be from a 70s action soundtrack! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Roy Ayers & Wayne HendersonStep In To Our Life/For Real ... 7-inch
Polydor/Dynamite Cuts (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $15.99
Two gems from the legendary pairing of these two great 70s jazz funk giants! "Step In To Our Life" is the title cut from one of the albums that Roy Ayers and Wayne Henderson cut together – and the tune has all the edgy vibes of Roy's great Polydor records, mixed with some of the slightly tighter funk of Henderson's At Home Productions – with plenty of space for both artists to solo! "For Real" is a tune with a bassline and some great Roy Ayers-styled vocals sliding along the groove – but still plenty of jazzy touches from both of the leaders! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ James BrownI Got Ants In My Pants And I Want To Dance (part 1, parts 15 & 16)) ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1972. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Shouting storming uptempo funk from JB – and a track that really hints at his work at the end of the 70s! The cut screams dancefloor all over the place – and believe us, when James has bugs in his pants, he sure knows how to scream! Plus, this single also includes the oddly-numbered "parts 15 & 16" on the flipside! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ James BrownKing Heroin/Theme From King Heroin ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
"King Heroin" is one of James' most enduring songs of the 70s – and although it's not as funky as some of the others, it's got an incredibly soulful political message that's still extremely compelling today. The flip's got a nice version of the song's theme, too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ James BrownMake It Funky (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Polydor, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Godfather at the height of his powers! The track's a killer 2-part heavy funk track – with a riffing vamp that you'll recognize immediately, and loads of tight work from the JBs! The stuff that funky legends are made of – and funky all the way through! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a few small notations in marker.)

James BrownPublic Enemy #1 (part one)/My Thang ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1974. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. Even better is "My Thang", a nice hard funky track that's James' answer to "It's My Thing". It's great how angry he gets when someone else has a big funk hit, and it always seemed like he had to write his own version! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ James BrownSexy, Sexy, Sexy/Slaughter's Theme ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1973. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
2 killers by James! Both tracks are from the soundtrack to Slaughter's Big Ripoff, and "Sexy Sexy Sexy" is a stone cold winner that always gets overlooked in surveys of James' funky singles from the time. Very nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ James BrownSuperbad, Superslick (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1975. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An excellent funky number from the mid 70s, and proof that James was still going strong! The track has a mellow snapping easy funk groove, with some great bubbling keyboards, and very positive lyrics from James. Nice part two, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Killer funky stuff from JB, and just about everything you'd want from him: hard grooves, heavy politics, and lots of nice funky playing by the band! Also the inspiration for the great Talkin' Loud label! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ James BrownThere It Is (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1972. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An oft-forgotten funky classic from James! The track's a monster – with this wah-wah beat that's flanged all over the place, yet is still as tight as a pair of pants with a 26 inch waist! The groove is prime JBs early 70s – and James is shoutin and callin the groove over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1976. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
2 mellow tracks from the mid 70s. The best one here is "Woman", almost a follow-up to "It's A Man's Man's Man's World" – and done with a similar rootsy sound, very different than most of James' other 70s work! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Polydor sleeve.)

✨✧ MandrillI Refuse To Smile/Kofijahm ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1972. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Great early work from Mandrill! "I Refuse To Smile" is a sweet little soul track, with some pretty strong harmonies and a nice mellow sound. "Kofijahm" is even better – and is a cooking instrumental with a Latin feel – which means lots of strong percussion, and some nice funky flute! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Great early 70s work from Mandrill! "Love Song" is sweet and mellow – but it's got some great deep soul vocals in the middle, deeper than we've heard from the band on many other sides. 7-inch, Vinyl record
