George JohnsonWake Me Up/Penn Walk ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
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

Ginger JohnsonWitchdoctor/Nawa (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Freestyle, Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
Romping grooves and plenty of percussion on "Witchdoctor" – a tune that offers up a great mix of African roots and the hipper sounds of the London scene in which Ginger Johnson recorded! "Nawa" is even cooler – more drums, and a totally great organ line – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Syl JohnsonIs It Because I'm Black/Let Them Hang High ... 7-inch
Twinight, Late 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Beautiful original single of Syl's classic track about racial disenfranchisement. The track's filled with deep deep Chicago soul, and it's a stunning set of haunting guitar-based arrangements that are beyond compare! The flip's a nice original, also written by Syl. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Red label pressing. Label has a peeled spot from sticker removal.)

Syl JohnsonWe Do It Together/Thank You Baby ... 7-inch
Twinight, Late 60s. Good ... $4.99
2 classic sides of heavy Chicago soul from Syl's great Twinight years. "We Do It Together" has a heavy James Brown-ish funk groove, like his best big cuts from the time. "Thank You Baby" has more of a sweet Chicago soul groove, which is a nice change for Syl. Both cuts were ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Plays with noise and crackles. Labels have some marker, peeled spots, and a piece of tape.)

Johnny Jones & The King CasualsIt's Gonna Be Good/Chip Off The Old Block ... 7-inch
Brunswick, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Both cuts are great – heavy funk numbers with lots of bass, recorded with fuzzy production touches that make the tunes ring out darkly! "Gonna Be Good" is the more upbeat track – done here with some great drums – and "Chip Off" is slower, with an early ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Numero, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A rare indie track from Thelma Jones – recorded down in Florida with a nicely burning groove! "I Can't Stand It" moves along at a slow-stepping, yet funky sort of pace – with a chunky rhythm that really lets Thelma take off with her vocals in the lead! "Only ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Margie JosephOne More Chance/Nobody ... 7-inch
Volt/Expansion (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $12.99
Early genius from Margie Joseph – and a tune that's got this bold sound that's maybe a bit different than some of her later work! The horns are full on strong with the rhythms – romping in a space that's somewhere between Detroit and Memphis – while Margie really burns out the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jungle FireComencemos (Let's Start)/Tokuta ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A killer – and one of those tunes you'd swear you heard back in the day – but which is even greater given that it's a contemporary recording! There's a bursting power to "Comencemos" that almost feels like "Jungle Boogie"-era Kool & The Gang – a way of ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jungle FireFirewalker/Chalupa ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

Just Brothers/Honey BeesCarlena/Let's Get Back Together ... 7-inch
Garrison/Outta Sight (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A great back-to-back set of Northern soul! "Carlena" is a hard-rolling groover by Just Brothers – an obscure 60s harmony combo with a rough edge that's just right for the groove! The Honey Bees really kick it on "Let's Get Back Together" – a tune produced here with ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Frankie Karl & The DreamsI'm So Glad/Don't Be Afraid (Do As I Say) ... 7-inch
DC Sound Ltd, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Great harmony soul! Both cuts are stellar – with that kind of spare, post-doo wop 60s soul harmony sound that we love to death. The production is by Gene Dozier, and Frankie Karl's vocals really send us! A great lost winner! 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

Connie Kaye TrioI'm A Woman ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... $5.99
A very cool take on the tune first made famous by Peggy Lee – done here in a mode that's equally jazzy, but a bit offbeat too! The vocals and rhythms criss-cross in this interesting way – and there's some odd instrument on the chorus, maybe a melodica – which is offset by a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ric Tic, Late 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
A great little number! "Where Do I Go From Here" is pure Motown – strings, vibes, and rolling congas underneath, as Al sings in a deeply soulful voice that roots the track in a deep deep soul sound! "You've Got To Pay" is a stepping instrumental – of the sort that ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
