Two funky tracks from this rare Italian soundtrack! "Spell" has tight drums, a fast bassline, and this bold guitar line that echoes out almost with a western sort of vibe – but much funkier overall – especially when it gets a bit fuzzy in the middle! "M23" has a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lost work from Gloria Taylor – singer who's best known for indie sides in the 60s, but who sounds completely fantastic here on a one-off single for Columbia!

Fantastic lost soul from Chicago! "If I Could" has these amazing baroque arrangements, with a good string part, and a hard groove buried deep in the mix.

Stax, 1971. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Old school break party in action! From the first note of "The Breakdown", you know you've picked yourself a winner – the kind of funky Rufus Thomas tune that set so many beatheads going back in the mid 80s, and which has none of the hokey sound of some of his weaker work. The ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rufus ThomasDo The Funky Chicken/Turn Your Damper Down ... 7-inch
Stax, 1969. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A funky classic! "Funky Chicken" needs no introduction – as it's chirping guitar grooves and heavy soul vocals are well known to any fan of funk. "Turn Your Damper Down" is a nice little funk tune too – not as hard and heavy, but still pretty nice. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Outta Sight (UK), 1962. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic little number from Mel Torme – his hard-swinging, jazzed-up take on "Comin Home Baby" – a tune that's still maybe one of the most definitive vocal versions of the song! "Cry To Me" is one of the key calling cards of Solomon Burke in the 60s – a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

The a-side of this single's a nice little disco version of this famous Bacharach hit – done with Gene Redd arrangements that have a nicely funky sound, and male vocals that have a very odd sound, but which really capture the mood of the tune!

A blue-eyed soul classic from John Valenti – despite the black and white eye image on the cover!

VibrationsWatusi/Wallflower ... 7-inch
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good ... $1.99
"Watusi" is a classic groover from The Vibrations – a slowly dancing number with a hard-sock groove, one of the group's best early cuts! "Wallflower" is more uptempo, tighter harmonies and a smoother groove – kind of a sing-song playful number, with raw vocals on ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dakar, Late 60s. Good+ ... $9.99
2 sides of killer group soul from Chicago – by a group we'd never heard before! "Until You Came Along" is a really great ballad – slow and lovely, with a rough late-nite feel that's almost doo-woppy, but done in a mode that's a bit more 60s. "I'm In Danger" is more ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A totally cool Japanese soundtrack from the 60s – one that's as much of a jazz album as it is a film score!

A fantastic Muddy Waters track from the early 78rpm years – a tune that's got this unbelivable folding together of fuzzy guitar and hypnotic vocals – almost a trance-like take on Chicago blues, and proof that even at the start, Muddy was onto something new!

One of the most beautiful soul singles of the early 70s! A great catchy chorus, and some stellar mellow soul production that just won't quit!

Rare Miami soul from Witch Doctor – a singer who works here in a groove that feels like a more stripped-down approach to the TK Records style from the same scene!
