Marvin GayeLet Your Conscience Be Your Guide/Never Let You Go ... 7-inch
Tamla/Third Man, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
An early moment of brilliance from the young Marvin Gaye – already way ahead of the pack with a single like this! "Let Your Conscience" is a slow, mellow number that has Gaye almost taking on a bit of gospel in his approach – from his soaring vocals in the lead, to the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful reissue pressing – in a tricycle logo paper sleeve just like the early Tamla pressing!)

✨✧ Marvin GayeTrouble Man/Don't Mess With Mister T ... 7-inch
Tamla, 1972. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Superdope work from Marvin! "Trouble Man" begins with strings, and slides into one of the coolest vocals that Marvin cut on wax in the 70s – and "Don't Mess With Mister T" sneaks along in a blend of strings and electric keys – percolating a sound that would show up ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

General CrookWhat Time It Is (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Down To Earth, Early 70s. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the best tracks from this Chicago funk legend! The tune starts with a great break, has a fuzzed-out Superfly kind of groove, and funks it on in a totally righteous way! Loads of great fuzzy guitar – and a very hip sound that takes it past most of The General's other work! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Georgia Soul CouncilCostanza/Hip Shot ... 7-inch
Hip, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99
Not the "Costanza" you might know from Seinfeld, but a tight funky number from the excellent Georgia Soul Council! The tune's got fast drums mixed with lots of Hammond riffing and tight horns – and the whole group shouts a catchy vocal bit at a few key spots. "Hip Shot" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jim GilstrapSwing Your Daddy (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Roxbury, 1975. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A strange little cut – one that skips along with a "woo-wah" groove that's part old doo woppery, part pre-rollerskating, and which sounds like nothing else we can think of! The cut's always been a favorite here in Chicago with the steppers – and it's got an easy going beat ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Garland GreenJust My Way Of Loving You/Always Be My Baby ... 7-inch
Cotillion, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Excellent work from Garland – and not on any LP! Donny Hathaway arranged both sides, and they've got a sweet smooth 70s soul feel, very different from Garland's earlier work on the Uni label. His vocals are sublime on both numbers – heartbreaking and honest, in his best mode! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have some marker.)

Garland GreenLet's Celebrate/Let Me Be Your Pacifier ... 7-inch
RCA, 1977. Near Mint- ... $13.99
The "pacifier" in the title might make you think of an infant – but this sweet single from Garland Green has the singer very much at the top of his game – working in a mature 70s groove that's a great match for his classic deep soul vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in an RCA sleeve.)

Hal's Hobbits/Made In BrasilHal's Hobbits/Crickets Sing For Anamaria ... 7-inch
Hal's Music Center, Mid 70s. Very Good+ ... $69.99
A rare single from this legendary Bay Area Brazilian group – one that was only issued on a small pressing by a local music store! Side one features "Hal's Hobbits" – the story of how some Hobbits formed Hal's Music Center – a pretty goofy spoken bit. But side two ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Single has a very slight dish warp, but is pretty great overall.)

✨✧ Johnny HammondLos Conquistadores Chocolates/Shifting Gears ... 7-inch
Milestone, 1975. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Two of the best tracks ever by the great Johnny Hammond! "Los Conquistadores" is a seminal cut from the legendary Johnny Hammond – a key number off his classic Larry Mizell-produced album Gears – with a vibe that equally ties together jazz, soul, funk, and club – at a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Marvelle HamptonI Truly Believe In Love/I Know How It Feels ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... $3.99
A very unique tune from Marvelle Hampton – a cut that's funky, with some James Brown-style riffing guitar in the mix – but which maybe has a deeper vibe, too – given her fluid vocal approach, which almost seems more rooted in jazz than soul. "I Know How It Feels" is a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hard Drivers with Vivian LeeSince I Was A Little Girl/Straight Talk ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
Vivian Lee's a hell of a singer, and she's right out front here – soaring above the fast funk grooves by the Hard Drivers – who are a group who definitely earn their name! The tune's a mixture of funky soul and club – and it's backed by the slower-moving "Straight Talk" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eddie HarrisInstant Death/A Little Wes ... 7-inch
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
"Instant Death" is an excellent little groover from Eddie – fast, tight, and with a mad Varitone romp that fits perfectly with the 70s funk tip of the cut! It's matched by the super-dope "A Little Wes", which has a clear inspiration from Wes Montgomery, and a slick take ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
