James CarrGonna Send You Back To Georgia/I'm A Fool For You ... 7-inch
Goldwax, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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.)

Cool CreationsWish Upon Love/Nightime On The Beach Island ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The Cool Creations are definitely a group who live up to their name – working here on "Wish Upon Love" with this groove that's complicated, yet completely seductive too! The rhythms change in this nicely sophisticated way, and set things up with a nice edge – which then gets warmed up by the beautiful vocals of the tune! The flipside is pretty great, too – begins with the sound of ocean waves, then moves into this excellent slow-stepping groove that blends sweet trumpet with a watery guitar line – and even some cool moogy moments as the instrumental moves on! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jukka Eskola Soul TrioIntroducing The Soul Trio/Martha's New Moment ... 7-inch
Timmion (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $8.99
A hard-hitting romper from trumpeter Jukka Eskola – a tune that has the trumpeter working with the well-named Soul Trio – in a groove that feels like some lost jukebox jazz single from the 60s, with the trumpet popping nicely alongside a soaring Hammond! "Martha's New Moment" begins with a great drumbreak, the rolls into more great organ – all very 60s overall, and capped with a cool compressed solo from Jukka! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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)... $4.99
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

Al GreenBack Up Train/Don't Leave Me ... 7-inch
Hot Line, Late 60s. Very Good ... $0.99
A great little single from Al – recorded in the pre-Hi, pre-Willie Mitchell days, when he was working with the Soul Mates group, and working with an "e" on the end of his last name. "Back Up Train" has a nice punch in the ballad groove – very mellow, but also slyly funky! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Flashback pressing.)

Hal's Hobbits/Made In BrasilHal's Hobbits/Crickets Sing For Anamaria ... 7-inch
Hal's Music Center, Mid 70s. Very Good+ ... $79.99
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.)

Eddie HarrisEddie Harris Goes To The Movies (7 inch jukebox EP) ... 7-inch
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $1.99
A little mini jukebox EP of Eddie's excellent Vee Jay LP. After the success that Vee Jay had with Eddie Harris' huge hit version of "Exodus", they cut this album of Eddie playing movie themes – like "Tonight", "Moonglow", "I Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry", "Gone With The Wind", "Be My Love" and "Secret Love". Dick Marx handled the arrangements – and the overall sound is slicker than Eddie's "Exodus", as his solos are laid out over larger string arrangements by Dick Marx, but it's not without some charms – especially because Eddie's tone at this point is amazing, filled with little tricks and turns that make just about anything he plays sound great! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has a name in marker on back.)

Jungle FireFirewalker/Chalupa ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99
Fast guitar steps out quick on "Firewalker" – setting a groove that's followed by fast congas and some heavy riffing horns – all burning together with just the right sort of intensity you'd guess from the group's name! "Chalupa" continues with a sweet tropical groove – darn funky, and with this cool plunky beat that's mighty unique! 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

Hank Soulman MullenHe Upset Your Dreams/Listen ... 7-inch
Ever-Soul/Daptone, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Tight-stepping soul from the well-named Hank "Soulman" Mullen – a great groover that moves at a Northern pace, but has a deeper soul feel overall! Hank's vocals are totally great – warm and raspy, almost in the best Memphis tradition – and the rhythms of the track are tightly vamping with some nicely skittish guitar and horns blasting over the top! "Listen" is great too – a mellower number with a great southern soul feel – like a lost gem from the far-reaches of the Muscle Shoals recording scene! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Emma DeAngelisEmma DeAngelis EP (Forgiveness/Trip/Plankton) ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
You might know the DeAngelis name from other funky Italian work of the 70s – thanks to the soundtrack genius of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – but this DeAngelis is their sister Emma, who had a much shorter career – but one that was equally groovy overall! The set begins with the funk monster "Forgiveness" – a track that has to hardly ask for its title, as any funk fan would be grateful to have this gem in their collection – thanks to romping drums and some wickedly funky guitar! "Trip" is moodier – kind of a slow-building number with mellow piano tripping over keyboard waves that flow up and down – with a real superdope vibe overall! "Plankton" is still funky, but very trippy too – loose string plucking that almost feels more like piano strings being strummed than a guitar, but with these slow waves of sound that are mighty nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 1000 copies.)

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
