Village Soul ChoirCat Walk/Country Walk ... 7-inch
Abbott, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Amazing funky soul tracks – both of them! The Village Soul Choir were a cool little vocal group – and forget the "choir" in their name, because they had a raw soul sound that's very different than what you might expect. "Cat Walk" is a loping funky track with these ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

VontasticsPeace Of Mind/No Love For Me ... 7-inch
St Lawrence, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
2 nice ones by this oft-overlooked midwestern harmony group! "Peace Of Mind" has the hook – but we really love "No Love", which has a sad slow harmony sound, very late nite in approach, and with the kind of dreamy vocals that really really send us! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Pink label pressing. Label has a drillhole.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
David Waciuma & Rapture VoicesDevil Go/Jesu Kristo ... 7-inch
Afro 7 (Estonia), 1976. New Copy ... $12.99
Two rare tracks from Nairobi, circa 1976 – raw little numbers that might well be dubbed their own genre of "garage gospel"! "Devil Go" has a spiritual message, but is delivered with a romping groove and this really fuzzy guitar – leaping along like some Cramps-like ... 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

Sadao WatanabeFelicidade EP ... 7-inch
Takt (Japan), 1966. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $9.99
Beautiful bossa nova from 60s Japan – groundbreaking work from the young Sadao Watanabe! Like one of his obvious influences, Stan Getz, Watanabe had a great role in bringing the bossa nova out of Brazil – taking a music that had already been introduced to Japan a few years before, and ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chess/Third Man, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Maybe one of the most famous Muddy Waters songs ever recorded – served up here in all its fantastically raw glory! The tune's got Waters playing a famous electric guitar vamp that may well have become the blueprint for countless bar bands to come – but serving up the lyrics with a wit ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chess/Third Man, 1950. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
A classic early tune from Muddy Waters – one that might not have changed the world when it was released at the start of the 50s – but later gave the famous group their name! The tune's a wonderful mix of raw rural and early electric Chicago blues modes – spare, but extremely ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Muddy WatersShe's All Right/Sad Sad Day ... 7-inch
Chess/Third Man, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
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! "Sad Sad Day" is ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Watts 103rd Street Rhythm BandDo Your Thing/A Dance, A Kiss, And A Song ... 7-inch
Warner, Late 60s. Good ... $1.99
"Do Your Thing" is a great one from Charles Wright and the group! The cut's got that messed-up funky groove they hit so well – with lots of tight funky playing, some great shouted lyrics, and a hook that drives the whole thing home. "A Dance" is more conventional soul ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

EmArcy, Early 50s. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $19.99
Can't really figure out the title – although the cover has a picture of Ben in a knight's helmet – but we really can't imagine that's his idea of an iron hat! Whatever the case, though, the album's a great one – featuring tracks by Webster recorded after his departure from ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Barry WhiteYour Sweetness Is My Weakness/It's Only Love Doing Its Thing ... 7-inch
20th Century, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great later gem from Barry White – a tune lifted off his The Man album, blending strings and beats in classic Barry mode – picking up the pace a bit more for the disco age, but losing none of the White-styled funkiness in the rhythms – and still hitting plenty of those great ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

F Spot, 2018. New Copy ... $7.99 8.98
A furiously funky couple of jams by underground LA trio The White Blinds! "Get To Steppin" comes storming out of the gates with some of the most hard-charging organ funk and heavy drums we've heard in a while. "Blinded" takes a more measured approach, this one with a jazzier ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chick WillisStoop Down Baby/It Ain't Right ... 7-inch
La Val, 1972. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A popular bluesy number from the early 70s – with a fairly obvious bawdy subject matter that made the track as popular for Chick as "Strokin" was for Clarence Carter. Or if not that popular, it at least made the cut an underground blues hit for a fair number of years. 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of the all-time Northern Soul classics from Motown – exactly the kind of secret sound that's gone on to become a flag-waving standard for soul collectors over the globe!

Obrey Wilson/Lee BrackettDaddy Please Stay Home/You Get To Me ... 7-inch
Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
A fantastic cut from Obrey Wilson – maybe one of the warmest, most compelling pleas we've ever heard from a child to keep his father at home! The tune's got an upbeat, warm-tinged groove that's wonderful – balanced by the deeper soul vocals of Wilson – with an energy that maybe ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two beautiful tunes from Bobby Wright, both recorded in the mid 70s with a subtle righteous power that's taken many years for the rest of the world to fully appreciate!

Warner, 1969. Very Good- ... $1.99
One of the biggest singles by Charles Wright – and backed with a nice b-side! "Love Land" is a great loping vocal soul cut – a lot sweeter than your average cut by the Watts Rhythm Band, but very catchy and very nice, too! "Sorry Charlie" is an instrumental – ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sandra WrightWounded Woman/Midnight Affair ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
A sweet-stepping bit of southern soul from Sandra Wright – the title track to her album of the same name, but a number that's more than worthy of a 45 of its own! Sandra may be wounded, but she brings an upbeat quality to the track that's great – this pride and positivity that's set to ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sublime 80s mellow from Michael Wycoff – a great track lifted from his classic Love Conquers All album, and a tune that never gets old! The track glides in beautifully on some sweet keyboards that have a lot of 70s warmth – and Wycoff's voice, while smooth, also crackles with an honest ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Incredible work from The Young Hearts – recorded at a time when the harmony group just couldn't miss!
