Fabulous FugitivesWhat The World Needs/You Made Me Cry ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Rare early 70s funky soul from Memphis by Fabulous Fugitives! There's a raw, gritty funk groove running underneath "What The World Needs" – keeping the groove on something of a low boil, but still quite funky – leaving the more charged aspects of the number to come out in the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fame GangGrits & Gravy (extended mono)/Crime Don't Pay ... 7-inch
Fame/BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic extended mono take of this classic cut from The Fame Gang – a tune that's got a hard-burning, fast-romping approach to funk – one that's much more like The James Brown Band on late 60s King records than the usual sounds of Muscle Shoals! "Crime Don't Pay" was ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fat NightThings You Do (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 7.98
A wicked slow funk number from Fat Night – haunting, moody, and very very compelling! There's a slightly trippy feel to the track – maybe from the heavy echo used on the vocals – but the core groove of stepping guitar and drums almost takes us back to the best mellow harmony cuts ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

FeatherBe Real/Trips ... 7-inch
Be Free (Germany), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
There's lots of great funky flute on "Be Real" – a sweetly trilling, skatting sound that sets the tune off nicely – before the warmly blue-eyed soul vocals come into the mix, and soar strongly with this great 70s vibe! "Trips" has a complicated guitar line wrapped ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Felony TheftWhen You Have Love/Run For Cover ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $6.99
Sweet funk from Felony Theft – a tune with a really unique groove! The single start out with some nicely romping drums, but also has this weirdly watery guitar part – which bubbles over the beats while the group sing some sweet harmony lyrics! "Run For Cover" has more of ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
Lee Fields in storming fuzzy funk mode – a standout track from one of the greatest voices in classic school soul, backed by one finest backing bands in The Expressions! "Make The World" bursts out of the gate with heavy drums, punchy horns, and borderline sinister guitar sound, but ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lee Fields & The ExpressionsSpecial Night (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
A two-part stunner from Lee Fields & The Expressions – a cut that's every bit as great as their work together on the sublime My World album – delivered in a similiar slow funk mode! The groove is like classic New Jersey soul from the early 70s – rough-edged, but sweet at the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Flipside/Athens Of The North (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $12.99
A fantastic modern soul single – and both cuts are great! "Havin A Party" isn't the Sam Cooke hit from years back – but instead this great fast-moving groover – with riffing guitar that flanges back and forth alongside the catchy lyric! "Music" is maybe even ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fresh Mark & The Black Hawk w/Soul InvestigatorsI Got The Number (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Number Nine (Germany), 2007. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A great bit of old school hip hop – served up with plenty of funky 45 touches! Fresh Mark have a relation to some of the recent work coming out from Tramp Records – and although the style here is hip hop, circa 1982, the overall presentation has plenty of deep funk spirit! Drums are ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Friction BandWatchin You/To The Sky ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
No friction here – as the group's tight and right on the money – flowing wonderfully through the completely catchy groove of "Watching You"! The tune's almost got the appeal of some of the Fantasy Records work by Wayne Henderson – funky club, but with a more ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Friends Of DistinctionWhen A Little Love Began To Die/Ain't No Woman ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
Two overlooked gems from this fantastic harmony group! "When A Little Love" has a percolated intro that's almost in Shuggie Otis territory, but then soars up a bit when the voices come in – and the whole tune hits this catchy vibe that's perfect RCA soul from the 70s! The group ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

FruitWhat You Gonna Do/Life Is A Challenge ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A quick-stepping bassline kicks this one off, but there's also a fair bit of moogy keyboards in the mix, too – arcing up and down the spectrum over the straightforward groove – creating a nicely cosmic complexity over the party-heavy lyrics! The flipside's got an even cooler vibe ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

FugitivesFunky You/Love Comes Down ... 7-inch
Sandman/Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
Gritty soul from the windy city – a killer cut that has a really romping guitar line that comes on almost harder than the vocals – jumping, bumping, and really setting off a storm – which inspires the raspy-voiced singer to great heights as he tries to keep up! "Love Come ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Westbound/BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $9.99
Two great tracks from the young Funkadelic – back to back on a single 45! "Can't Shake It Loose" was originally scheduled for release in the late 60s – but canceled at the time – and has a sound that's maybe a bit more 60s soul than some of the group's later work, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cedric/Tramp (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
