✨✧ Ethel BeattyI Know You Care/It's Your Love ... 7-inch
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hot slice of early 80s, post-disco soul produced by Roy Ayers! On "I Know You Care", Ethyl uses a sexy, breathy, Minnie Riperton kind of approach that accents the deep thumping bass, drums and claps, and the scratchy guitar very nicely! Overall the track has a bit poppier of a sound ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Don BlackmanDon Blackman (180 gram vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Arista/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A jazz funk masterpiece, and THE record by the legendary Don Blackman – the only one issued under his own name for many many years, and a famous little set that's been sampled endlessly over the years, and for good reason! The vibe here is one that's barely been matched again – a blend ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Keni BurkeRisin’ To The Top/Hang Tight ... 7-inch
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

Chuck CisselDon't Tell Me You're Sorry/Do You Believe ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
A mighty sweet groove from Chuck Cissel – a singer who's got a way of soaring with the groove – which is an approach that works perfectly here! "Don't Tell Me You're Sorry" has this vibe that's maybe a bit more upbeat than the message of the lyrics – but that's a-OK ... (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

✨✧ Norman ConnorsOnce I've Been There/Captain Connors ... 12-inch
Buddah/Expansion (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A standout classic from the legendary 70s soul years of Norman Connors – a tune that's maybe one of his most dancefloor-oriented numbers, but also a lot deeper than most of the disco generation too! The great Prince Phillip Mitchell sings lead vocals – soaring to the skies on waves of ... (Soul) read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Norman ConnorsTake It To The Limit/Mr C ... CD
Arista/Expansion (UK), 1980/1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of groovers by Norman Connors from the start of the 80s – Take It To The Limit and Mr C – together in a single set! Take It To The Limit is excellent album of smooth soul – one that reaches back to some of Norman's earlier records for inspiration, and which takes the sound ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Coke EscovedoI Wouldn't Change A Thing/Rebirth ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... About May 1, 2018
Coke Escovedo always warms our heart with his 70s classic "I Wouldn't Change A Thing" – an amazing track that has a funky fusion flavor and almost a Larry Mizell-styled groove – compressed keyboards and guitar riffing away beautifully next to Coke's conga lines – all ...

A pair of overlooked albums from this sweet harmony group – back to back on a single CD!

✨✧ High InergyLovin' Fever – The Best Of High Inergy ... CD
Motown/Expansion (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Finally, a sweet compilation of some of the best numbers from latter day Motown girl group High Inergy – sunny soul that shines especially brightly with the benefit of hindsight! They managed to hit the charts early on, but it's pretty easy to see how these ladies could be unjustly ... (Soul) read more CD

Bobbi HumphreyBaby Don't You Know (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A sweet little rarity from Bobbi Humphrey – a rare single cut for Roy Ayers' Uno Melodic label, and a great blend of Bobbi's jazzy style with Roy's warmly sublime groove! There's a bit more vocals than flute on the track, but that's a-ok with us – and Roy produced, while Bobbi arranged! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

Willie HutchEasy Does It/Kelly Green ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $9.99
Post-Motown work from Willie Hutch – two mighty nice tracks! "Easy Does It" builds with a snapping funky vibe – a bit like some of Willie's soundtrack inclinations, in a way that brings subtle drama to the tune before his vocals come into the mix and send the whole thing home ...

✨✧ Phyllis HymanForever With You/Set A Little Trap ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1998. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A late track from Phyllis Hyman, but a great one too – a tune that bubbles with lots of jazzy energy in the rhythms, which Phyllis takes as a cue to soar strongly over the top – just like in her best early work! "Set A Trap" is of similar vintage, and has this great slow-stepp ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic bit of modern soul – both cuts are great!

RCA/Expansion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two of our favorite albums by The Main Ingredient – back to back on a single CD! Euphrates River is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula. Bert DeCoteaux was still ... (Soul) read more CD
