Pride/Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 9.98
Two great cuts from the Pride Records label – both hip and funky! "Whatever's Fair" is one of the best-remembered numbers from the Infinity recordings with Billy Butler – work that's got all the soaring soul of his 60s Chicago work, but a more righteous vibe too! "Simple ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Pride/Mr Bongo, 1973/1974. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 9.98
A really cool cut from the soundtrack to Melinda – a "Latino" theme, but one that's got this beautiful funky sitar over stepping beats and piano – almost like a hip hop sample that was waiting 20 years to be discovered, and a very cool instrumental groove!

Rickey Calloway & The Soul MotivatorsTell Me (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99
A fresh take on one of the Rickey Calloway classics from years back – snapping drums and full-on 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 ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ace (UK), 1966. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99 14.99
The cover looks like a vintage 45 – but all the work here is previously unreleased, even though it was recorded back in that magical year of 1966! The Carolines are a wonderful girl group with a Brill Building sort of bigness in their sound – almost wall of sound production from Larry ... (Rock, Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kent/Deep Soul (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
James Carr may not have cut the famous version of "These Arms Of Mine" – but he does a superb job here on the classic – really hitting the tune with his best deep soul energy, and maybe even a bit more sadness than on the Otis Redding hit! "Let's Face Facts" is ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Numero, Early 60s. New Copy ... $5.99
Sweet girl pop from Bernadette Carroll! "Laughing On The Outside" is the kind of weepy gem that might have been recorded by Joanie Sommers – but handled here with a nicely indie vibe that has spare strings moving nicely next to Bernadette's blue-tinged vocals, and a nice spoken bit ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mar V Lus, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Alvin Cash pays tribute to Cassius Clay – screaming his way through the cut in a way that pre-dates most other Ali tribute songs, grooving away in that hard funky groove that you'd find on his best 60s work. "Feel So Good" is great, too – a heavy R&B stomper with a "T ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of Alvin's funkiest tracks ever, and a killer groove put together at the end of the 60's with the funky Scott Brothers Orchestra backing him up.
