✨✧ Danny Barker & His Creole CatsTootie Ma Is A Big Fine Thing/Corinne Died On The Battelfield ... 7-inch
Sinking City, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A romping little single, and one that has a groove that really seems to set the scene for later New Orleans soul! The rhythms almost feel like they're coming from a set of cans instead of conventional drums – and Danny Barker's got a nice edge to his vocals as he sings along with his guitar! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Danny Barker & His Creole CatsIndian Red/Chokco Mo Feendo Hey ... 7-inch
Sinking City, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great example of the kind of cuts that made New Orleans such a distinct musical city in the postwar years! Both tracks have elements that you'd hear in more familiar jump blues or R&B – but they're a lot more raw, a heck of a lot more rhythmic, and have a skittish vibe that's right ...

✨✧ NeonNeon/Nazi Schatzi ... 7-inch
Water Wing, 1978. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $6.99
A rare punk singer from the Swiss scene – featuring work by Astrid Spring – who was later known for her work in the group Liliput! "Neon" has a very raw, stark vibe – right up there with the best of the UK scene at the time, with a very Rough Trade sort of vibe – ... (Rock) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bessie SmithAt The Christmas Ball/Jazzbo Brown From Memphis Town (colored vinyl) (2014 Black Friday Release) ... 7-inch
Legacy, 1925/1926. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $9.99
A mid 20s Christmas treasure from Bessie Smith! "At The Christmas Ball" balances the cozy warmth and good natured seasonal vibe, with the period bluesy instrumental backdrop and tone that the Empress Of The Blues is famous for – good tidings with a hint of melancholy. Beautiful! ... (Holiday Music) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Miles Davis with Bob DoroughBlue Christmas/Devil May Care (colored vinyl) (2014 Black Friday Release) ... 7-inch
Columbia/Legacy, 1962. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $9.99
Legendary Christmas jazz tune from Miles Davis, producer-arranger Gil Evans and his Orchestra, and bebop vocalist Bob Dorough! Dorough's vocals work as a pretty sharp critique of crass Christmas commercialism, which is of course as relevant today as ever – as is the artistry of Miles, Gil ...

✨✧ Living FunkLet Your Mind Take The Place Of Your Body (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Funk Music Unlimited, 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The title here reminds us of an early gem by Kool & The Gang – and the fast funk style of the tune does too – except it's a lot more soaring and jammy – with bold horns, a great organ solo, and a massive breakdown that has very cool congas supporting a heavy bass! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ 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 ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ David BowieBe My Wife/Art Decade (live Perth 1978) (pic disc) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, 1977/1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Fantastic work from the Berlin period of David Bowie – one of his few catchy tunes from the time, backed with an unreleased live recording! "Be My Wife" is fantastic – not only does the tune have all the darkness of the Heroes/Low period, but it also has a surprisingly ... (Rock) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Fame BeatsDon't Tell No Lies/Watford Stomp ... 7-inch
Wick, 2017. New Copy ... $5.99 6.98
A catchy little single from this contemporary group – almost a Merseybeat tune, given the overall feel – but produced with a nicely garagey sound! "Watford Stomp" is more of a groover overall – with a fast-rolling, fast-riffing guitar – and a raw, upbeat sound ... (Rock) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bob & Gene/InversionsIt's Not What You Know (It's Who You Know)/Version ... 7-inch
Daptone, Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.98
A sweet take on this tune by Bob & Gene – given a Jamaican groove on both sides, thanks to help from The Inversions! The main cut bubbles along with a bit of a rocksteady vibe next to the duo's vocals – still very much the main song at the core, but augmented with a Kingston soul ...

✨✧ Almeta LattimoreThese Memories/Oh My Love ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A beautifully soulful track from Almeta Lattimore – an obscure Detroit singer, but a great one too! "These Memories" has a warmly mellow feel, but it still moves a bit too – with a full sense of sound and style that reminds us a lot of Gloria Scott at her best! "Oh My ...

✨✧ Keni BurkeRisin’ To The Top/Hang Tight ... 7-inch
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $9.99
A massive jam from Keni Burke – easily his greatest tune ever, and the kind of track we'd hardly have imagined back when he was a little tyke in the Five Stairsteps! The track's got a thumping, stomping kind of groove that really gets going from the start – and the vocal hook is a ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Linda CliffordMarch Across Land/Only Fooling Myself ... 7-inch
Paramount/Expansion (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite tracks ever from Chicago soul singer Linda Clifford – a mellow bit of funk written and produced by Leroy Hutson – and quite different than any of Linda's later clubby work! In fact, the whole thing's got a righteous, positive vibe – one that really feels ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lou Lawton/Walter WilsonKnick Knack Patty Wack/Love Keeps Me Crying ... 7-inch
Wand/Outta Sight (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two 60s stormers! "Knick Knack Patty Wack" is a wicked little groove – atune that begins with just handclaps and vocals at the start, then rolls into a vamping soul style that's completely outta sight – and which really fits the playful lyrics of the song! The flipside ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Soul Brother (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two of the greatest cuts ever from the Soul Searchers – back to back on a funky 45! "Blow Your Whistle" is a killer – an example of that tight, hard funk sound that would make the group a huge influence on the GoGo scene in years to come. And "Ashley's Roachclip" ...

Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
A great remake of one of the biggest cuts ever from the legendary Roy Ayers – done here with a version that's got even more vibes than the original! In fact, the core groove is very much like the Ayers recording, but the cut soon moves into loads of jazzy vibes – and also has a great ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Prime soulful hip hop from the Culture Power 45 team!

✨✧ MagnumEvolution (Beats Edit)/It's The Music That Makes Us Do It ... 7-inch
Phoenix/Jamie, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 12.98
One of the most legendary tracks ever from Philly's Magnum – a well-rounded bit of funky percussion, tight horns, and these electric piano lines that feel more Nigerian than the usual American funk of the time! This edit brings up the beats a bit more, but leaves the core groove nicely ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ ApostlesBanko Woman/Faith Luck & Music ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
Fast funky grooves from The Apostles – one of the few 70s Afro combos who could maybe go head to head with the sharpest American funk acts of the time! "Banko Woman" is a wickedly quick barrage of basslines, snapping percussion, and very cool guitar – a tune that's got a bit ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
