✨✧ BarrabasWild Safari/Woman ... 12-inch
RCA/Get On Down, 1972. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $12.99 14.98
A couple of the biggest, funkiest early 70s jams by legendary Spanish combo Barrabas – masters at a wild mix of funk, soul, and rock at this early point – with a raw, percussion heavy grit underneath soulful vocal and funky rhythms! "Wild Safari" works on a few different levels. Starting with steady, stripped down percussion, building with gritty lead and soul chant backing vocals before hitting the unforgettable, floor shaking chorus, then breaking down and doing it again – all the more thrilling on repeat! "Woman" ratchets up the funky guitar groove on the equally tremendous flipside. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Really nicely done 12" by Get On Down – with a great picture sleeve!)

Calvin B RhoneI Believe/Lord!/We've Come To Praise Him ... 12-inch
Favorite (France), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $18.99
A beautiful mix of secular and spiritual, gospel and club – in a mode that's very much like the classic work of the Clark Sisters at the start of the 80s! Calvin B Rhone is maybe even hipper, though – as this single has a very tight small group approach – sharp keyboards over a bad-stepping groove on "I Believe" – a warmer, soaring vibe on "Lord" – and a snappy, catchy lyric on "We've Come To Praise Him"! There's a current of jazz on all the cuts – almost as if Donny Hathaway had made it to the early 80s, and opened up his groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Willie BoboAlways There (12 inch version, Kon's Kick The Bobo Remix) ... 12-inch
Columbia/Nature Sounds, 1978. New Copy ... $12.99
Ronnie Laws may have had the first hit version of "Always There", but Willie Bobo's is a great one too – with a slightly Latin tinge that takes the cut to a whole new level, adding in some extra percussion to make its jazz funk grooves stand up on end! Great pressing – with one side that replicates the original 12" promo mix – and another new funky mix by Kon! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Junior ByronTrying To Hold On (original, version, Gerd Janson megamix) ... 12-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 12.98
A slow-grooving boogie number from Junior Byron – one that's got a catchy sort of back/forth rhythm, which Junior uses to nice advantage with his swinging vocals on the tune! The version brings up the riffing guitar in the rhythms, in a way that's even cooler than the original mix – and the single also features a sweet long megamix that seems to percolate all the best elements together in a nicely extended groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Far Out Monster Disco OrchestraVendetta (Al Kent main mix, Al Kent dub) ... 12-inch
Far Out (UK), New Copy ... $11.99
A fantastic cut from the Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra – given an even more fantastic disco vibe here by Al Kent! The tune begins with lots of great percussion – almost congas like Candido on Salsoul – as strings rise up, the rhythms get deeper, and the whole thing takes off to the skies as some moogy keyboards come into the mix! The dub version changes things up nicely – and even brings in some Fender Rhodes! 12-inch, Vinyl record
