Syl JohnsonGet Ready/Same Kind Of Thing ... 7-inch
Twinight, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Tight hard popcorn soul from Syl! Both cuts have a nice hard sound – in the best manner of Syl's classic funky work on Twinight! "Get Ready" is a cover of the big hit, but done nice and soulfully by Syl – and "Same Kind of Thing" is deep Chicago soul, with the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Victor JohnsonAfter Dark In The Ghetto/When You Say You're Mine ... 7-inch
Love, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An obscure one with arrangements by Richard Evans. "After Dark In The Ghetto" is partially sung, partially spoken – in the mode of hipster inner city lonely songs, like the 50s jazz work of Langston Hughes, Frank Minion, and perhaps Babs Gonzales. "When You Say You're ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby JonesBoogie Train (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Capri, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A train-oriented groover, in the tradition of "Express" or "Monorail", with a sort of chugging heavy funky groove, and lyrics about a party on a train! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Plain text label pressing.)

Bobby JonesWelcome Back A Foolish Man/Lovin Hard, Livin Good ... 7-inch
Kack/Rocafort (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Two tasty deep soul numbers from Bobby Jones! Both cuts have that heavy west side sound that you'd expect from Syl Johnson – and "Lovin Hard" has a weird groove, strange arrangement, and an echoey production approach that gives the cut a nice nice edge! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sharon Jones & The Dap-KingsMatter Of Time/When I Saw Your Face ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2017. New Copy ... $5.99 8.99
A fantastic funky single from Sharon Jones – a tune that dips, turns, swells, and grooves – all with an even more fantastic demonstration of her vocal skills than usual – and support from the Dap-Kings that show again that they're one of the best funky bands in the business! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jungle FireFirewalker/Chalupa ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99
Fast guitar steps out quick on "Firewalker" – setting a groove that's followed by fast congas and some heavy riffing horns – all burning together with just the right sort of intensity you'd guess from the group's name! "Chalupa" continues with a sweet tropical ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Faduma Kassim/Ahmed Sharief YusufMajogo/Berflasana ... 7-inch
Kah/Jazzaggression (Estonia), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Two rare grooves from Somalia – both of them great! "Majogo" has a romping style that's almost Ethio funk, but maybe a bit looser overall – nicely upbeat, and with great interplay between a female singer and a really tremendous tenor sax solo! "Berflasana" has more ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby KingIf You Don't Want My Love/Lovers By Night ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic bit of modern soul – both cuts are great! "If You Don't Want My Love" begins with this cool moogy keyboard part over the groove – then Bobby King comes in to warm the whole thing up with his nicely measured vocal approach – really flowing along with the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Frederick KnightSteppin Down/Heart Complication ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
A nicely obscure tune from southern soul singer Frederick Knight – and a lot grittier than some of the work you might know from his full length albums of the 70s! There's a fast-burning organ that sets up the groove on "Steppin Down" – along with riffing guitars, blasting ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Krzysztof Komeda with Bernt RosengrenKnife In Water ... 7-inch
Polskie Nagrania/Cacophonic (UK), 1961. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
A seminal moment in Polish jazz – and in the soundtrack career of Krzystof Komeda, too! The rare EP features reedman Bernt Rosengren working with Komeda's trio – laying down amazing music from the film Knife In Water – but in a live performance from the the 1961 Jazz Jamboree ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kou Keri KouCanto Negro/Cerbatana ... 7-inch
Electric Cowbell, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99
A Spanish group, but one who draw inspiration from all over the globe – as they criss-cross Southern Hemisphere sounds from both sides of the Atlantic on "Canto Negro" – a tune that's got a nice sing/songy groove! "Cerbatana" is even deeper – a rich tune with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Afro 7 (Finland), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Two rare slices of Nairobi funk – back to back on a great 45! "Gkinumanze" is a fast-moving number with horns riffing over the top of a bass-wrapped rhythm – one that's complex, but completely infectious – topped by lyrics at the start, then this very unusual guitar (?) ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
