Bobby BoydI Like What You Do To Me/Girl Like You ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99
There's some sweet 80s basswork on this one – that kind of dipping pedal groove that's peppered with plenty of keyboards – all making for this bright, crackling sound that gets plenty of deeper soul elements from Bobby Boyd's vocals! Lots of percussion kicks off "Girl I Like ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby BoydLove Goddess/Good News ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
Two rare groovers from Bobby Boyd! "Love Goddess" has this great sort of building vibe at the start – a bit like the way the "Shaft" theme rolls in, but totally different too – especially when Bobby hits the great lyric in the lead! "Good News" is as ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bobby BoydRock On (main, Bob Blank rmx) ... 12-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99
A sweeeeeet electro groover from Bobby Boyd – one that has splashy beats, percolating drum machine bits, and warm keyboard washes that provide a great contrast to the kind of deeper soul vocals we know from Bobby's earlier work! The main mix is great enough – but the Bob Blank mix ... (Soul) read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Greg FoatMage ... CD
Athens Of The North (UK), 2019. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the most amazing work we've heard so far from Greg Foat – and that's really saying a lot, as the British keyboardist has given us some really incredible records over the years!

Willie GriffinI Love You/Where There's Smoke There's Fire ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A tune with a wonderfully laidback groove – very slow-moving, but groovy too – a great vibe to offset the vocals from Willie Griffin – which have an edge that's almost deep soul, but which come across here in more of a sweet soul mode! The tune's an incredibly unique soul track ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Grupo MagneticoPositivo ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
An album recorded in Scotland, but done with all the strong fire as some of our favorite Latin classics from the New York scene! These guys are fantastic, right from the start – tight percussion, mighty sharp horns, and this great use of Fender Rhodes that recalls those late 70s moments when ...

Deep soul from Old Town Records – two overlooked 60s gems from Beverly McKay!
