✨✧ Ethel BeattyI Know You Care/It's Your Love ... 7-inch
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy ... 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

Two Arista winners from Angela Bofill – back to back on a single CD!

✨✧ BreakwaterSay You Love Me Girl/Time ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
What a great track! "Say You Love Me Girl" has all the best parts of Breakwater – a cool guitar jangling on the intro, a tight jazzy finish on the Mizell-ish grooves, and sweet harmonies from the group on the vocals. The track's a weekend anthem that means an instant party the ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

Norman ConnorsOnce I've Been There/Captain Connors ... 12-inch
Buddah/Expansion (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $12.99
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

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!

✨✧ Crystal MotionYou’re My Main Squeeze (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funky club from right before the bigger disco years – the kind of upbeat, uptempo group soul track that the east coast did so well – with these beautifully positive lyrics that only sound even better with all the voices of the group in unison! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Phyllis HymanForever With You/Set A Little Trap ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1998. New Copy ... 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), Late 90s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two great tunes from Maysa – both with a nice Incognito-styled groove! "The Bottle" is a remake of the Gil Scott-Heron groover – done here with a housey finish peppered with warm keyboards and a tasty funky flute! "Hooked On Your Love" has great jazz funk ...

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
