Broomfield Corporate JamStop/Doin It Our Way ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Hardly the corporate record you'd guess from the name – and instead a fantastic funk track from the 70s underground! There's a cool descending vibe to the rhythm – which contrasts nicely with the soaring vocals of the group! "Doin It Our Way" follows with an equally upbeat sound – a leadoff sax solo over upbeat rhythms, and great lead vocals by a strongly-voiced female singer! 7-inch, Vinyl record

James CarrGonna Send You Back To Georgia/I'm A Fool For You ... 7-inch
Goldwax, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Classic Goldwax work by this Memphis soul legend! The real killer here is "I'm A Fool For You" – sung as a duet with an unnamed female vocalist, stepping along in a slow, almost country-soul pace, with some sublime deep vocals from James that are right up there with his best work! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Yellow & white label pressing. Includes jukebox tab.)

FatnicePeace Love Unity & Havin Fun (Lil' Dave Fun Size mix, Windy City mix)/My Favorite Things (Buscates Vibrate mix) ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2014. Sealed (pic cover)... $1.99
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness the Lil Dave mix is missing – and the flipside features Fatnice's own take on the concept of "Favorite Things" – served up with this true school vibe that should make him huge, if the world has any sense of justice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hal's Hobbits/Made In BrasilHal's Hobbits/Crickets Sing For Anamaria ... 7-inch
Hal's Music Center, Mid 70s. Very Good+ ... $59.99
A rare single from this legendary Bay Area Brazilian group – one that was only issued on a small pressing by a local music store! Side one features "Hal's Hobbits" – the story of how some Hobbits formed Hal's Music Center – a pretty goofy spoken bit. But side two features an early cut by bossa maestro Victor M – a totally great take on the Marcos Valle tune "Crickets Sing For Anamaria" (Os Grilos) – with great vocals from a female singer, a sweet flute solo near the end, and lots of driving percussion! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Single has a very slight dish warp, but is pretty great overall.)

✨✧ Ernie Hawks & The Soul InvestigatorsScorpio Walk/Message Of Love ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little theme song for Ernie Hawks & The Soul Investigators – a groove that's got all the biting 70s funk elements you might guess from the "Scorpio" name – but at a pace that's kind of a fast-walking sort of groove! There's fuzzy bassline that chugs along in a riffing mode, this cool watery flute line that's nice and funky, and very unusual production that really keeps things on edge! "Message Of Love" is a bit slower, but equally funky – and with lots more trippy guitar, bass, and flute! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Willie Henderson & the Soul ExplosionsFunky Chicken (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Brunswick, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Chicago funkiness from the great Willie Henderson – a tune that was one of his biggest hits, and which has a different kind of groove from Rufus Thomas' number of the same name! Lots of nice skittish percussion, and a good mix of the rough and smooth! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Living FunkFools Love/Silver Black Summer Day ... 7-inch
Funk Music Unlimited, 1973. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The group may be named Living Funk, but "Fools Love" is a great bit of mellow sweet soul – a tune that moves at a slow pace that really lets the vocals unfold in a heartbreaking kind of way! The funk returns on the flipside – as "Silver Black Summer Day" has loads of riffing guitar and fast-stepping basslines – with righteous lyrics right from the street, and a sweet fuzzy guitar solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Hard Drivers with Vivian LeeSince I Was A Little Girl/Straight Talk ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
Vivian Lee's a hell of a singer, and she's right out front here – soaring above the fast funk grooves by the Hard Drivers – who are a group who definitely earn their name! The tune's a mixture of funky soul and club – and it's backed by the slower-moving "Straight Talk" – a song that really showcases Vivian's deep soul style! 7-inch, Vinyl record
