Bobby BoydI Like What You Do To Me/Girl Like You ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $7.99
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 ... $7.99
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 ... Out Of Stock
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

Dream/Athens Of The North (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $12.99
An obscure bit of boogie from Brief Encounter – a southern soul group known best for their mid 70s sides for the Sound Stage Seven label, stepping out here in a completely different 80s groove!

✨✧ Greg FoatMage ... LP
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! The work's got a more ambitious vibe than some of Greg's straighter jazz sets – with large arrangements ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Greg Foat & James ThorpePhotosynthesis ... CD
Athens Of The North (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $12.99
A very cool collaboration between Greg Foat and James Thorpe – a set that's billed more as a sound library session than some of Foat's other jazz projects – even though the sound is equally appealing if you love those records too! The set is self-described as "futuristic analogue ... (Jazz) read more CD

Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gratitude are definitely here to party – stepping out of the gate with a mighty quick tempo that sets up the tune nicely – as bursting horns intersperse with the catchy, upbeat lyrics – definitely a call to the dancefloor! "Loving You" has this cool moogy keyboard ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Grupo MagneticoPositivo ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 ...

Hampshire & FoatHoneybear ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
The team of Warren Hampshire and Greg Foat have already given us some amazing music on record – but this strangely-titled set may well be their crowning achievement so far!

Spider HarrisonBeautiful Day (vocal, drums) ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
Spider Harrison has some massive drums underneath his vocals here – working with a bassline at a pace that's even quicker than the speed of his vocals, which have this dark, sinister vibe! The flipside focuses even more on the drums – and has the whole thing in this really crispy, ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Athens Of The North (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Infinity have a really unusual groove here on "Put Everything In Place" – a mode that has a bassline upfront, but a bit more complicated than usual – with some nice changes that are also reflected in the harmony vocals that cascade around the lead of the tune!

Ocean Of Tears/Athens Of The North (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare sweet soul single from Kansas City Express! The group was actually based closer to Springfield, MO than KC – but they have a sound that would do any midwest scene plenty proudly!

A sweet bit of electric work from 70s Brazil – the only album we've ever seen from Helio Matheus, and one of those rare gems that's every bit as great as its legend might imply! Helio works here in this spacious territory that has a compressed groove on the bottom, and a wide sound on the ... (Brazil) read more LP, Vinyl record album

James McKenzie looks a bit down to earth on the cover, but he sounds a lot more high-end on record – a budding blue-eyed soul singer, with a strong penchant for AOR production – but always served up in a homegrown style that's nice and lean!

An underground mellow soul gem from the 70s – recorded on the Detroit scene with lead vocals by Judy Pollak, and backings by a very hip soul trio! 33 1/3 are way more than just an instrumental group – as they also harmonize behind Judy a fair bit – really elevating the soul ...
