Gamble/Outta Sight (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $8.99
A Northern Soul classic from Dee Dee Sharp – a tune that begins with this fantastic fast piano over the groove, already totally wonderful at the start – then Dee Dee's raw vocals come in to blow the whole thing away!

SharpeesTake Me To Your Leader/Darkness Of The Night ... 7-inch
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
A great one from Chicago's Sharpees – an upbeat, uptempo groove that shows why the group were one of the boldest things going in the Windy City at the time – and a male group who could easily match the best that Detroit had to offer! The tune's got a nice bit of grit at the bottom, but ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Henry ShedGroove Into It/Let it Be ... 7-inch
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
"Groove Into It" is kind of a wild uptempo soul cut penned by Lalo Schifrin, and is listed on the label as being from the film "Pussycat, Pussycat I Love You", which we've never heard of. "Let It Be" is a soulful version of the Beatles big hit. Both sides are from ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Brother (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
Sublime production from Clayton Ivey makes both of these tracks completely wonderful! "Something New To Do" has a bubbling groove that's upbeat and soaring – as Bobby's rough-edged vocals get a great blend with tight fuller arrangements by George Tipton!

O-Pex, Late 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
Heavy soul from this hip Chicago singer! "You're A Devil" begins with some nice fuzzy guitar – then hard steps into a righteous groove with Pauline and backup singers mixing the sweet with the fierce! "Won't You Come Back Home" is a sweeter tune – a great Chicago ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Horace SilverJody Grind (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A great little number from Horace – begins with rolling piano lines, nicely soulful and a bit exotic, before the horns come in and pump the thing up with a funky modern edge! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Joe SimonTheme From Cleopatra Jones/Who Was That Lady ... 7-inch
Spring, Early 70s. Very Good ... $3.99

Bishop Smith & The Sensational Disciples BandBumps In The Road (vocal, instrumental) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
This bishop's no gold-cloaked, scepter-wielding, church figure – as the single's this mad bit of trippy soul – with the Smith singing in a style that's almost like Screaming Jay Hawkins – over slow-tripping funk that's very heavy on Hammond organ, and some nicely spaced-out guitar! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two amazing tracks from underground Chicago jazz legend Paris Smith – back to back on a limited 45!

Smoke CityLove Affair (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Ampi, Mid 80s. Very Good ... $6.99
Mellow mid 80s soul from Chicago – a sweet slow stepper with a slightly jazzy polish, and a sound that's plenty nice overall – much more so than you'd expect from a tiny label! Vocals are female, and the tune's almost got a Phyllis Hyman sort of approach – slinkily seductive ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Brothers SixYour Love Is Such A Wonderful Thing/I Can't Live Without You ... 7-inch
Atlantic, Late 60s. Good ... $4.99
One of the most legendary non-LP sides ever cut on Atlantic! The Soul Brothers Six were the kind of tight little soul group that Atlantic loved to champion – and although they never made a full album for the label, this single is one of the best soul tracks Atlantic ever issued during the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Crusaders OrchestraFunky Jive/Pretty Lil Mama ... 7-inch
More Soul, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $11.99
"Funky Jive" is one of the most amazing lost funky 45's of all time! Very slow hard groove, chugging along with a piano that keeps clanking over and over again – all off-key, but very edgey sounding. Sounds like a bunch of guys trying to move a piano up a staircase, but stopping ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul ExplosivesTryin To Get Down/Ain't No Sunshine ... 7-inch
Big Crown, Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $8.99 9.98
Rare raw funky soul from early 70s Texas! The Soul Explosives take a loose, swaggery approach to the period funk that's pretty great – with a looseness that really feels like a Lone Star State funk pedigree, but also indicative of the group's youth – as there were just high school ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Soul MotivatorsIt Ain't Fair But It's Fun/Side Hustle ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99
A wickedly classic funky 45 – a contemporary recording, but one that's got all the dark-tinged, muddy-cornered funk of a rare gem from the indie scene at the start of the 70s! The production's the star here as much as the band – and the two come together in the kind of perfect groove ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
