Great grooves here – deep funk versions of two sci-fi tracks penned by Brit maestro Barry Gray!

No panic here – just tightly-crafted jazz, and one of the better RCA small combo sessions of the 50's!

TurksYou Turn Me On/Generation Gap ... 7-inch
Daran, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Mellow harmony soul from Chicago – a great little indie single by a group we know little about!

Unit BandUnit's Groove/Hand In Hand ... 7-inch
High Jazz (Switzerland), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
The only single we've ever seen from this obscure New Orleans group – a combo who sound a fair bit different than most of the other Crescent City soul you've got in your collection!

Athens Of The North (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A really righteous little track – one that's got a message that's as might as its groove! There's a bassy bottom throughout "Let's Do It Today" – one that gives the tune a dark, moody feel at the start – the really sends things home once it gets funky – packing ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

ValdonsWhatcha Gonna Do/Stop, Wait A Minute Girl ... 7-inch
Secret Stash, Late 60s. New Copy ... $5.99
"Whatcha Gonna Do" is a real killer – a harmony soul stepper, but one with this super-hard punch on the downbeat – so that the whole thing hits with the fierceness of a funk track, even though it's got a sublime mellow feel throughout! The harmonies are really great, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
