✨✧ Erykah BaduDanger (album full mix, radio full mix, instrumental) ... 12-inch
Motown, 2003. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Badu takes the proud, righteous style of her underrated Mama's Gun album to an even deeper level on "Danger", the first single from her hugely-anticipated Worldwide Underground! In a NuSoul world that is so proudly and deeply rooted in rich soul traditions, Erykah continues to innovate and grow as both a writer and a vocalist, and it's that growth that makes her so compelling. "Danger" has her fragile, yet extroverted vocals way out front of some moody, staccato keys, a pulsing bass line, and sharp horns – all over programmed beats and soul claps that still manage to sound earthy and organic. There's nothing like this on the radio, OR in the underground right now – here's hoping Badu continues to nurture the global underground she's named her new album after! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a stickered sleeve.)

Marvin GayeFunky Space Reincarnation (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Motown, 1978. Sealed ... $6.99
The closest that Marvin ever came to a disco single – a 12" version of this long funky track from the Here My Dear album, expanded to 8 minutes for the single, and featuring an instrumental version too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Willie HutchIn & Out/Brothers Gonna Work It Out ... 12-inch
Motown, 1975. Very Good ... $19.99
A rare 12" single with one of Willie Hutch's greatest tracks! The driving funky groove of "Brothers Gonna Work It Out" was one of the best things about the film The Mack – and the cut's been a classic for years with just about everyone, from funk fans, to hip hoppers, to early house folks, who played the track like mad! "In & Out" is less good, but still decent enough. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo, in a Motown sleeve. Label has some pencil.)

Teena MarieSquare Biz (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Motown, 1981. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A timeless track by Teena Marie, off the It Must Be Magic album, though there's no mistaking this one's from the 80s, with a solid midtempo groove and the shiny sound of LA Motown. "Square Biz" is self produced, with Teena asserting her own sound a little more than on some of her other more Rick James sounding cuts, which is just fine by us. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo in a Motown sleeve.)

✨✧ Carl BeanI Was Born This Way (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Motown, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful disco groover – recorded for Motown by Carl Bean, who we think never got a chance to issue a full album for the label! The real strength of the cut lies with Norman Harris – who produced the cut with a warm bubbling Philly finish – one that really makes the most of Bean's gospel-drenched vocals, and brings out the righteous, positive feel of the tune! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a printed Motown sleeve.)

Motown, 1977. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Needs no introduction – and a funky track so classic, it's still hard to believe that Lionel Ritchie was involved in the thing! A perfect choice for a Motown disco single – and one to slap on the turntables at your next mainstreamers gig! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Original pressing. Cover has a large corner cut.)

✨✧ Marvin GayeWhat's Going On (mono single version, featuring BJ The Chicago Kid, coffeehouse mix)/God Is Love (mono single version) ... 12-inch
Motown, 1970. Used (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing political soul tune – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. Classic. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Marvin GayeWorld Is Rated X (clubmix, single version)/Dark Side Of The World/Lonely Lover/I'm Goin Home ... 12-inch
Motown, 1986. Very Good+ (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
At the time this was issued, these tracks had not yet been released, though they've subsequently shown up on a number of the expanded CD reissues that have been put out since this release. Sadly, the totally burning funk of "The World Is Rated X" gets buried a bit in the bad 80s production (as opposed to good 80s production, or better yet, leaving it mostly alone as they did on the Let's Get It On double disc reissue) and the other numbers of similar vintage sound as if they got a bit slicked up to appeal to 80s radio programmers a bit too. Nonetheless, this is the only way to get a hold of these on vinyl. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Cover has staining & waviness.)

Eddie KendricksAin't No Smoke Without Fire/Whip ... 12-inch
Arista, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Post-Motown grooving from Eddie Kendricks – still very much in a boogie mode all the way through! "Whip" is our favorite track here – as it's got a straightforward clubby groove that lets Eddie do plenty on his own with the vocals, especially on the great hook! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo.)

✨✧ Diamond OrtizGoodies EP ... 12-inch
Austin Boogie Crew, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's lots of 80s-styled groove acts around these days – but Diamond Ortiz may well be one of the best – serving up a record here that's very worth the title of "Goodies" it bears on the label! The set's only got four tracks, but has a wicked groove that takes us back to maybe some of the catchiest Motown funk of the early 80s – or maybe even some of the more captivating electro soul of the same time – the kind of grooves that are heavy on basslines and keyboards, but also have a solid sense of soul – and a great ear for a hook! Titles include "Goodies", "NBC", "Hit The Spot", and "Rite Back Atcha". 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Stevie WonderMaster Blaster (jammin, dub) ... 12-inch
Tamla, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
A bit of a reggae groove in this one – clearly inspired by Bob Marley's "Jammin", and with a groove that's very similar! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo in a Motown sleeve.)
