✨✧ James BrownEscape-Ism (parts 1, 2, 3) ... 7-inch
People, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A killer early funky track by James and The JBs – and one that has that perfect improvised funk groove that the band was honing at the time. The band vamps in the background with a nice choppy riff – while James raps over the top, goading them on, and driving them onto new funky ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ James BrownHot Pants (parts 1, 2, & 3) ... 7-inch
People, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Killer funky! "Hot Pants" is one of James' pivotal tracks from the early 70s – and as you'll hear on this 3-part version, he'd totally perfected his masterful recording style of endless non-stop party grooves. The band keeps on playing for a very long time, and each part stands as ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lyn CollinsBaby Don't Do It/If You Don't Know Me By Now ... 7-inch
People, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"Baby Don't Do It" is a sort of bluesy, shouting track, a little like "Message to the Soul Sisters" in format, but with more of an older R&B groove that has Lyn shouting away in a solid soul groove! The b-side's a cover of the Harold Melvin hit, and a nice one at that! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Purple label pressing.)

Lyn CollinsMe & My Baby Got A Good Thing Going/I'll Never Let You Break Up My Heart Again ... 7-inch
People, 1972. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An excellent hard-to-find track by Lyn Collins! "Me & My Baby" has a wonderful gospelly intro, similar to "Message to the Soul Sisters", which then leaps into a great groove with a nice hard soul hook! The flip has sort of a nice Muscle Shoals-ish sound, with some good ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lyn CollinsWe Want To Parrty Parrty Parrty/You Can't Beat Two People In Love ... 7-inch
People/Get On Down, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99 10.98
An excellent single – and one of Lyn's best! The cut's a stellar party funk number – with a rolling clavinet groove by the JBs, very much in the same mode as "Rockin Funky Watergate", but without the guitar work. Lyn's leading the troops over the top vocally, and the band ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Grodeck Whipperjenny (Dave Matthews)Grodeck Whipperjenny ... LP
People, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Here's a rare one! Arranger/producer Dave Matthews was to James Brown what David Axelrod was to Cannonball Adderley. Although Matthews didn't work on all of James' records from the early 70s, he did have quite a hand in some of The Godfather's classic funky material – especially the stuff ...

JBs(It's Not The Express) It's The JB's Monaural (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
People, 1975. Very Good ... $14.99
A classic – the JB's answer to BT Express' theme song! A biiiiig track here in Chicago, and one that still booms out of roller rinks, record stores, and the back seats of all the low riders. Stand in a record store on the south or west side, and within 15 minutes, you're bound to hear a ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

JBsBreakin' Bread ... LP
People, 1974. Sealed (reissue)... $11.99
An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others! The band is still in fine fine form – with none of the fast-funk or proto-disco of some later recordings – and they're working here in ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

JBsDamn Right I Am Somebody ... LP
People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
An incredible album – quite possibly our favorite record by the JBs, ever! The set starts with a wonderful conversational bit – rapping and musing on the idea of "Damn Right, I Am Somebody" – showing the group in a political and righteous mode for the first time ever. ...

An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ...

✨✧ JBsFood For Thought ... LP
People/Get On Down, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The classic first album by The JBs – James Brown's Fred Wesley-led backing band, and the force behind most of his greatest records of the early 70s! The band are incredible at this point – sharper, harder, and funkier than just about any other combo around – and that includes all ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JBsHustle With Speed ... LP
People, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most fantastic albums by the JBs – a masterpiece of funky jamming, tight instrumentation, and that free yet tight style of the James Brown 70s years! The tracks are longer than on some of the earlier singles – especially the 8 minute jammer "(It's Not The Express) It's ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

People, 1974. Very Good ... $39.99
A killer-diller bit of essential funk – the only full album cut by Maceo with James Brown production! The set's got Maceo coming back strongly into the JB fold, with a fierce array of funky cuts that kick it every bit as hard as the best JBs work of the time. No surprise, the JBs are ...

✨✧ Maceo & The MacksSoul Power 74 (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
People, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic Maceo groove! Nice hard and funky – with lots of nice choppy bits – and with that crazy "boiiiiiiing" sound that James was using on a few of his tracks at the time! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Red label pressing.)

✨✧ Maceo & The MacksParrty (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
People, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great funky classic that never stops at all! The Macks give it up in a tight JBs-sounding groove – hard running from the start, as the tune fades into an instant party sound – and Maceo hits lots of hard pinched notes on his solo. Bring the noise! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record

People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A supremely fantastic album, and one that's always woefully overlooked in discussions of James Brown's incredible People label! Sweet Charles, Charles Sherell, was a great lost soul vocalist who had a voice that was warm and mellow, with a sweetness that was often missing from James' singing ...
