Thunderfunk SymphonySky Blue/Hard Times ... 7-inch
Innovation 2, Late 70s. Very Good- ... $4.99
An obscure one from this Chicago group – not nearly as thundering as their name might imply, but still pretty decent overall. "Hard Times" is kind of a rock funk number, with some weirdly flanged guitars that pep things up a bit – but the best cut is "Sky Blue", a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

TrammpsScrub-Board/Hold Back The Night ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1972/1975. New Copy ... $9.99
Two early gems from Philly's Trammps! "Scrub-Board" has this quick-step groove that's really wonderful – carved out with lots of chromatic guitar lines amidst the strings – no vocals at all, but with more than enough instrumental interplay to evoke the Sigma Sound at its best! ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Andrea True ConnectionMore, More, More (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Buddah, 1976. Very Good+ ... $1.99
The porn star who became a chart act – and thanks to some very skillful help from Gregg Diamond, who wrote, produced, and arranged the cut! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Spyder TurnerI've Been Waitin/Get Down ... 7-inch
Whitfield/Expansion (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A killer track from Spyder Turner – part of his great late 70s revival years in the hands of producer Norman Whitfield, who creates a warm modern soul groove that really sends the tune home! The song's got a gentle glide that's augmented by some nice use of vibes – and Turner's voice ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One)Thank You (vocal, inst) ... 7-inch
Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99 9.98
Tuxedo say a very vibrant "thank you" on this slinky little single – with a groove that turns out to be one of their catchiest so far – and just the kind of tune that could push them over the top! The cut's got an 80s-styled bumping bass riff at the bottom – which seems ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

TwiggyBeautiful Dreams EP ... 7-inch
Ember/Munster (Spain), 1966/1967. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99
A weird batch of tracks from Twiggy – the ultra-skinny late 60s model who set the tone for countless others to come! Twiggy displays a rare vocal side of her talents here – singing with a cool London female pop style – one that's perhaps a bit more subdued than some of her ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

UnificsDawn Of A New Day/ (Working My Way Back In) Funky Thing ... 7-inch
Fountain, 1971. Near Mint- ... $4.99
After "Sittin' In At The Court of Love", the Unifics cut this later single for the short-lived Fountain label, with production help by Gerald Sims in Memphis, and a much rawer sound than their more famous work. "Funky Thing" is a pretty nice funk track, but the real treat is ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Marcos Valle/Don BetoA Paraiba Nao E Chicago/Nao Quero Mais ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1978/1981. New Copy ... $12.99
One of our favorite later tunes by Marcos Valle – a fantastic bit of modern soul that was created with help from Leon Ware – and which also has the same great vibe as some of Ware's best groovers from the start of the 80s, but with a Brazilian twist too! The flipside features Don Beto ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

BBE (UK), 2012. Near Mint- 5 x 7 Inch ... $19.99
Marc Mac takes it back, way back – with some great 70s styled sounds mixed in with his 21st Century vibe! The package is a great one to be issued on a limited 7" box, given the style of the music – and cuts include "Shaft In Africa (Addis)", "Funky Fanfare", ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Voices Of East HarlemCashing In/Take A Stand ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
Although less remembered than other tracks of theirs, we think "Cashing In" is one of the best tracks ever from this righteous 70s group! The cut starts with this cool hard piano, then runs into a soaring soul groove produced by Leroy Hutson and Curtis Mayfield – completely sublime ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Babe WallaceDizengoff (one sided single) ... 7-inch
Blue Beat (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $3.99
A mad groover from Babe Wallace – mixing surprisingly raucous R&B with a big band-sized orchestrations, wild vocals and an incredibly hip late 60s sound! It's a wild one, but totally infectious, almost the kind of thing you might expect to hearing backing some of the hippest, mod-era soul ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Leon WareWhat's Your Name/Inside Is Love ... 7-inch
Fabulous/Expansion (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
A sweet later track from the mighty Leon Ware – recorded after his bigger years on Motown, but with the same sort of style as his Musical Massage album! The tune's got this warm, seductive groove right from the start – and Ware sings right up there in the Marvin Gaye range, which is ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gene Washington & The IronsidesDon't Throw Your Love Away/Got To Get Through To You ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2014. New Copy ... $5.99 7.98
A sweet bit of funky soul from Bay Area singer Gene Washington and The Ironsides! "Don't Throw Your Love Away" has an emotional resonance that sings deep – with a killer chorus that cuts even deeper thanks to some lovely female backing vocals. The flip is a cover of a great tune by ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
