EL V & The GardenhouseEl Doctor/Tamarita ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. Sealed (pic cover)... $4.99
"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe!

Electric ExpressWhere You Coming From (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Linco, 1971. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A sock-soul number with a fast funky feel – tightly snapping the groove with a sound in the back that feels a lot like an Eddie Harris Varitone sax – one that takes over completely from the vocals, partying it hard with some crowd noises on part 2! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Golden Ear, 1973. Very Good- ... $4.99
Beautiful! "Fool Like Me" has everything you'd want in a sweet soul track from the 70's: a nice spoken intro, cool spacey production (by James VanLeer), and a very nice track about heartbreak and shame. Great stuff, and a track that should have been more of a classic! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Monster funk – and one of the all-time great funky 45s!

Walter JacksonIt Doesn't Take Much (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Brunswick, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
Obscure work by this excellent Chicago soul singer – recorded between his contracts at Okeh and Chi-Sound, and never issued on LP. "It Doesn't Take Much" is a wonderful updating of his 60s sound – a sad little number, done in a smooth groove, with haunting woodwinds floating ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Walter JacksonNo Butterflies/Ad Lib ... 7-inch
Epic, Late 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
A monster – one of the rarest singles ever by Walter Jackson, and one of the best! "Ad Lib" is a fantastic track – sad, slow, and really politically conscious – with a lyric that's almost Marvin Gaye-like in its social consciousness, and which ends with Walter speaking ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CTI, 1975. Near Mint- ... $59.99
A strange 3 track single – with 2 lesser-known cuts from Bob James – but both pretty nice, although in a way that's different than his better-known tracks! "Golden Apple" has fuller orchestrations – driving in almost a thriller soundtrack way, which makes for a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jesse JamesBring My Baby Back/Thank You Darlin ... 7-inch
20th Century, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Sublime soul from one of the most under-recognized singers of all time! "Bring My Baby Back" is a different tune than the hit of the same name – sung by Jesse in a light, yet soulful vocal style that's really tremendous. "Thank You Darlin" is even greater – coming ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jesse JamesI Need You Baby/Home At Last ... 7-inch
Zea, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Nice single from Jesse that has him singing in two different soulful styles. We're partial to "I Need You Baby", which is a great harmony-style ballad, recorded with heavenly soul production that's just great. "Home At Last" is pretty good, too, but it's more of a bluesy ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Milton James & The Creators/KenardMy Lonely Feeling/What Did You Gain By That ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Stone funky soul from Milton James & The Creators – a tune that's got this vamping, stomping vibe that feels like it was laid down by The Ramsey Lewis trio of the mid 60s – topped with great interplay between Milt and the group! The flipside features "What Did You Gain By ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mira/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Vietnam was a terrible war, but it did give the world some fantastic songs – like this raw, gritty number from Bobby Jameson – a tune that's clearly a takeoff on the Bo Diddley style of rhythm, but which has a much more powerful message! Drums are pounding and full of echo, cut through ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

2 sides of classic era Jay Dee circa Welcome 2 Detroit – including a tight Mr. Thing edit! "Rico Suave Bossa Nova" has always been a stunner in the Dilla catalog – as diverse of a beatmaker and producer as he always was, the bossa beat and jazzy piano backdrop on this one ...

People, 1973. Very Good ... $7.99
2 killers by the JBs! "Doing It To Death" is one of their best tracks from the early days – with a funky riffing sound you'll know immediately. "Everybody Got Soul" is an excellent party track with a great Maceo solo – lots of grooves, and the band is tight tight ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Little did the JBs know when they penned the lyrics "Givin Up Food For Funk" that they'd create an anthem for Dusty Groove customers! Still, who can resist skipping a meal for a track as delightfully funky as this! 7-inch, Vinyl record

People, 1972. Near Mint- ... $29.99
What more can we say? Beautiful funky classics, back to back, on an original People label single! "Hot Pants Road" is a killer cut, with a non-stop groove, and "Pass The Peas" was once in the running for the eighties most-sampled cut! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ivy JoI Remember When (Dedicated To Beverley)/Sorry Is A Sorry Word ... 7-inch
VIP, 1970. Very Good ... $1.99
An obscure little southern soul single on Motown's VIP label – recorded by Ivy Jo Hunter, a male singer, despite a name that sounds a bit feminine. There's nothing fem about Ivy's vocals, though – as he's got a deep soul sound that's more Muscle Shoals than it is Motown, with a few ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

George JohnsonWake Me Up/Penn Walk ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
George Johnson is plenty woke on this tight funky number – a tune that explodes with heavy drums, popping bass, and riffing guitar beneath George's super-powerful vocals in the lead – which then step aside for a mighty tenor solo in the middle! "Penn Walk" follows in a very ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Twinight, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $7.99
Great stuff from Syl – even though he's changing his sound a bit at this point! Both sides are arranged by W. Mitchell – who we take to be Willie Mitchell – and they've got a good hard groove, but also a hint of the Memphis style that Syl would use more in the mid 70s. The ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Colemine, 2019. New Copy ... $7.99 8.99
A beautiful single from Durand Jones & The Indications – very righteous, with a slow-stepping funk current at the core, which lets Durand really soar with the message in the music! "Cruising To The Park" has a warmer, softer sort of glow – mellow soul, with harmony vocals ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Juggy Murray JonesInside America (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Jupiter, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Not as hard and funky as Juggy's earlier work – but a nice little cut with a funky disco groove! The tune begins with some spaced-out keyboard, has a bit of strings, and some jazzy riffing over the top. Still pretty darn catchy, with a roof on fire kind of groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
