Rickey Calloway & The Dap-KingsI'm In Love (inst parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99
A rare instrumental take on a cut that Rickey Calloway cut with The Dap Kings a few years back – one that doesn't feature any vocals at all from Rickey – but has even more room for The Dap Kings to open up and groove! We're not sure why Rickey's name is on the label, but that oddness is more than fine with us – because there's a snapping drum break that sets the whole tune on fire, and has us held rapt through the riffing guitar, romping horns, and sweet keyboards that spin out over both sides of the single! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rickey Calloway & The Dap-KingsStay In The Groove (inst parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99
Not Rickey Calloway at all – but just The Dap Kings, stepping out in an instrumental reading of the tune! The track's a stone smoker right out of the James Brown generation of the late 60s – really wicked drums at the bottom, which step out in this snapping breakdown near the end of part 1 – setting a fire that's picked up beautifully on part 2! Proof that the Kings are always great – even away from Daptone! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Rickey Calloway & The Soul SurfersGet It Right Part 3/I Touched The Clouds ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $6.99
One of the hardest, heaviest cuts ever cut by the great Rickey Calloway – thanks to some super-intense backing from the Soul Surfers – who are at their best JB mode here! Guitar and horns and everything comes right down on the beat and bassline – and Rickey's vocals rival the best of the classic funky 45 generation, too! A cut that you'd swear was vintage, but which is really the best of the contemporary underground. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rickey Calloway & The Soul SurfersShed A Tear (I Touched The Clouds)/Get It Right Part 4 ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy ... $6.99
A killer bit of slow funk from the great Rickey Calloway – done in this mellow-stepping way that's still mighty hard hitting – and topped with vocals that take us back to James Brown in his best early years! "Get It Right" comes across here in a fiercely funky part 4 – all instrumental riffing from the Soul Surfers, with some mad Hammond and horns, and lots of scratchy guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dap Kings & Rickey CallowayStay In The Groove (parts 1 & 2)/I'm In Love (parts 3 & 4) (2 x 7" singles) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, 2013. New Copy 2 x 7" ... $13.99
An amazing pairing of talents! Funk vocal giant Ricky Calloway works here with backing from The Dap Kings – recording in the Daptone studios, with production from Kenny Dope! All the cooks on board definitely don't spoil the broth – and instead, the cut may well be the sort of number we've been waiting to hear for years from Ricky! "I'm In Love" is presented here with parts 3 and 4 – which we don't think were on any previous singles – and is a stone monster too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Rickey CallowayTell Me (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Snapping drums and heavy funk – a completely heavy-hitting number that rivals the best James Brown work of the early 70s! The track's a smoking cooker that never lets up – from the first rattletrap on the drums, to the shouted righteous vocals from Bobby, to the monstrously riffing guitar in the middle, and the great little time change on part 2! Insanely wonderful – the kind of funky 45 that keeps us digging for funky 45s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Rickey CallowayGet It Right (parts 1 & 2) (green vinyl) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from Rickey Calloway – once a lost 70s artist, but now at the top of our stack, thanks to the efforts of Kenny Dope! "Get It Right" is a totally frenetic little track – one with riffing guitar in the rhythms, played at a level that matches the best grooves of the James Brown Band of the late 60s – and Rickey himself seems to be taking a cue from The Godfather in his scratchy, screaming vocals for the track! A monster all the way through – two-part jamming that never lets up! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousKenny Dope & Keb Darge Presents Kay Dee Records ... CD
Kay Dee, 2006. Used ... $4.99
Kenny Dope and Keb Darge together – an amazing team that's already resulted in some incredible records! Both Kenny and Keb are well-known for their record-hounding skills – and they've turned that energy towards the incredible Kay-Dee label – home to killer 45s both old and new, and fast becoming one of the best sources for all things deep and funky! This tasty little set brings together some of the best work unearthed by the pair – some of it in Kenny Dope edits that firmly respect the structure of the original tunes, but bring up the funkiest elements that might have been slightly buried in the original studio mix. CD features 15 titles, including "Spread Love" by Harris & Orr, "Got To Get Your Love" by Gary Davis, "Nervous Like Me" by The Dap Kings, "Tell Me" by Rickey Calloway & The Crack Mirrow Band, "Mr Hot Pants (aka Across The Track)" by The Believers, "Look At What You Can Get (Kenny Dope edit)" and "Bahama Soul Step (Kenny Dope edit)" by Funky Nassau, "I'm So In Love With You" by Wizdom, "Nervous (raw mix)" by New Mastersounds, and "Boogie With Your Baby (Kenny Dope edit)" by Willie J & Co.
