Jazzman (UK), 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
A fantastic track from the great Nat Birchall – a number that bounds right out of the gate with a modal rhythm that's completely wonderful – then really takes on a strong, soulful shape when Nat soars out on a soprano saxophone solo!

✨✧ Midnight Movers UnltdFollow The Wind (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Renee, 1972. Very Good- ... $4.99
An excellent early cut by this oft-overlooked 70s funk combo! "Follow the Wind" has a choppy guitar riffing approach that's totally great – and which completely presages a style that would be later used by Earth, Wind, & Fire to greater fame. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funky Donald Byrd from his landmark Black Byrd LP – recorded with Larry Mizell at the production helm, and that cool spacey funky sound that made him a monster at the start of the 70s! Nice groove, mellow feel, and lots of funky trumpet! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
The start of the Cannonball funky sound – and an amazing number! "Walk Tall" would be enough for its sense of pride and power – but it's given an extra twist with some super-dope electric piano, laying out the groove in a really magical way! "Do Do Do" is a nice ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Goldwax, Late 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Fantastic work by James Carr! "To Love Somebody" may well be the best deep soul cover of the Bee Gees' surprise hit – done here by James in a sad, spare version that's perfect for his crackling southern soul vocals!

ABC, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Funky funky Bobby! "Gotta Have Money" is a fast bluesy number – done in a fast vamp mode, one that really works well with Bobby's vocals, and gives the tune an almost sock-boogaloo style. "Camel Walk" is the real groover though – with bass picking around a nice ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ FunkadelicFunky Dollar Bill/You & Your Folks, Me & My Folks ... 7-inch
Westbound, Early 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
Wonderful! This is as good as it gets with Funkadelic – as both cuts are slow funky numbers with a tripped-out guitar groove that's just great. They both have vocals, too – with catchier hooks than before, and some tightness in just the right spots to pump up the funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Westbound, 1972. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the most famous cuts ever by The Detroit Emeralds – and one of the best! "Baby Let Me Take You" is a stellar harmony cut – and it begins with this super-dope guitar intro that's been sampled by De La Soul and a few others over the years! "I'll Never Sail" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gold Plate, Mid 70s. Very Good ... $19.99
Nice stuff! Although the Chicago Gangsters are more known as a funky group, this single highlights two sides of their more mellow material – which is great! "I Choose You" is the famous Willie Hutch cut off The Mack, filtered through a rawer New Jersey style of soul. "Don't ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
Classic Northern soul groover! "Boogaloo Down Broadway" is Johnny's greatest legacy in soul music – and it's backed here by "Look What Love Can Make You Do", a track that insanely borrows just about every element of the backing of the hit a-side! The intro's the same, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Continental 4Love You Gave To Me/How Can I Pretend ... 7-inch
Jay Walking, Early 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
The a-side's a so-so uptempo groover, but the flipside's the real deal, with heavenly harmony vocals, in the band's best tradition! "How Can I Pretend" is a great one, with that kind of raw east coast harmony sound that still sends us to the heavens after all these years! 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Buena VistasHere Come Da Judge/Big Red ... 7-inch
Marquee, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
Nice one! "Here Comes Da Judge" takes the famous comedic vocal refrain, and creates a nice rollicking funky number with some great rolling piano chords that kick off right as the song begins! "Big Red" is more of a heavy sax workout, but both tracks swing real nice nice nice. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, Mid 70s. Very Good ... $4.99
Funky! This oft-overlooked funky number features James shouting "pick up on this" a few times at the beginning – no instrumentation, just shouted vocals, in a great way that's excellent for dropping into a mix! The groove is in that bouncy style he was using in the 75/76 years, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Toddlin Town, Late 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
Two very groovy funky instrumentals by this Chicago soul "orchestra", which – like other groups from the city, such as the Soul Crusaders Orchestra – was more of a large-ish instrumental combo that backed up the city's soul artists in live sets. On "Hunk O Funk", ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

One Der Ful, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
Two fantastic sides by one of the most-overlooked groups in Chicago in the 60's. "Do The 45" is a hard stormin' northern soul cut, and "Make Up Your Mind" is a rolling harmony track, with good vocals, and a nice mellow swing to it. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Roxbury, 1974. Very Good- ... $9.99
A classic if there ever was one – a seminal 70s soul track, covered by many, and featuring the classic "diamond in the back" line! Sad thing is, everyone always thinks it's Curtis Mayfield – but it's William, and even better than Curtis! Part 2 is a nice instrumental ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rampage, Early 70s. Very Good ... $4.99
Wicked heavy funk – one of those obscure numbers that's always stayed with us! The track's got a jaunty little groove – started off by a stepping, scratching guitar – then rolling into a heavy vamp with a lot of organ on the bottom! The tune kind of cooks and bubbles on its own ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Zodiac, Early 70s. Very Good ... $14.99
A very deep, very hard soul single! Big strings grace the dope groove of the intro, and give the whole thing sort of a Blacksploitation feel, then Chuck Bernard kicks in with soulful vocals, on a nice Chicago thing that's got sort of an early Leroy Hutson feel. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ King CurtisMemphis Soul Stew/Blue Nocturne ... 7-inch
Atco, Late 60s. Very Good ... $16.99
"Memphis Soul Stew" is one of King Curtis' best-ever tracks, with a deep bassy groove, cool spoken bits, and a tight funky drum sound all the way through. Great stuff – and the kind of funky "hit" that we still dig year after year! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Little BeaverParty Down (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Cat, 1974. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A classic Miami funk groove! The track's got a great compressed drum machine sound – ala Shuggie Otis, but with a bit more of a kick. Beaver solos over the top in tripped-out guitar lines that ring out in a dope little style right over some party crowd noises that are just great! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A wonderful lost single on early 70s Capitol – most likely one of those small local productions that was licensed to the label at the time!

An early one from James – with a raw R&B groove on both tracks, and shouted vocals that strike right at the core of the songs! "Crazy" has kind of a "Night Train" beat to it – and "Lost Someone" is slower, with a bluesy slow vamp kind of approach that ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

We never thought we'd recommend the combination of "Fish Chips & Sweat", but the tune is a mad funky monster – with an intro that's almost the funk equivalent of a John Cage prepared piano bit!

One of James' best funky cuts from the early 70s – a monster hard-hitting track with all the intensity of the best JBs sides from the same time, and one that begins with James shouting the legendary lines "Que pasa people?

Great stuff from Syl – even though he's changing his sound a bit at this point! Both sides are arranged by W.

Enough soul power to run a whole generator!

One of the most beautiful soul singles of the early 70s! A great catchy chorus, and some stellar mellow soul production that just won't quit! The track was released later on Bobby's album on Buddah, but this is the earlier single on the Chain label, and it's got a b-side that wasn't on the LP. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Classic Chicago soul from a singer who should have been one of the city's biggest stars. Cleveland Eaton produced, and both tracks have a nice raw sound, with beautiful vocals by Ruby. "Everybody Saw You" was a bit of a hit, but still not as big as her classic "Casanova". 7-inch, Vinyl record

King, Late 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
Killer James Brown! This late King classic is done up in 3 parts – and weren't there only 2 parts on the LP? Even more of a reason to buy this funky 45. It's so hot, it goes all the way to part 3! That third part is the super-duper killer – done in a fast funk style that's so ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Buddah, 1975. Very Good- ... $7.99
If you don't know "Deeper and Deeper" (and why not?), it's a fantastic soul cut with the sort of Leroy Hutson groove that Bobby Wilson did best. Vernon Bullock produced, and the sound is beautiful, with an excellent mid tempo groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Fabulous CountsJan Jan/Girl From Kenya ... 7-inch
Moira, Early 70s. Good+ ... $14.99
Monster funk – and one of the all-time great funky 45s! "Jan Jan" has this sinister mix of horns and organ that's never been duplicated again – one that pounds away for a very unique intro, before guitar twangs in and sets the whole thing rocking! "Girl From Kenya" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ ComplamentsFalling In Love/Chickens ... 7-inch
Dakar, 1977. Very Good- ... $1.99
"Falling In Love" is a nice sweet soul cut with a slow tempo, and has sort of a Brunswick soul sound to it. We don't know much about these guys, and have never seen an album by them, so this might be the only track out there. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Vinyl looks pretty rough but plays much better than appears.)

Date, Late 60s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the funky classics! "Funky Donky" is as hard, heavy, and classically funky as you'll ever get – with these great echoey drums and a hard tight choppy guitar bit, plus a deep voice shouting "Funky Donkey Time" over and over! Mad stuff – and one you'll never ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mainstream, 1973. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Two tasty bits of Afro Funk! "Soul Makossa" is a cover of the original – with a groove that's very nice and heavy. Even better, though, is "Hot Mud" – a weird little jazz funk number with a punchy rolling bass, and some tweaked-up moog solos over the top! It's a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great collaboration between DJ Center and Akyoa Afrobeat Project – one that takes the Afro Funk group into some great new territory! The vibe here still echoes the classic modes of Akyoa's other records, but also adds in some slight clubby touches too – focusing a bit more on the ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Star Creature, 2019. New Copy ... $8.99
Modern club grooves with a classic synthy disco vibe from Giovanni Damico!

Ubiquity, 2019. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
"Spooks" is a nicely laidback tune – one that begins with almost Timmy Thomas-style drum machine beats, moving at a slow pace – while the lead vocal echoes Nina Simone a bit, before things fill in, and give the whole thing a more modern soul style!

Timmion (Finland), 2018. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Cold Diamond & Mink provide some killer slow funk backing here – so much so that the tune's already got this great moody vibe before Emilia Sisco comes in with the lyrics – which have a heartbreaking vibe, and work with the funky backings almost like a classic tune by Ann Peebles ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Stax, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A later Stax single that offers up a side apiece by each of these obscure 70s groups on the label! Both sides are nice – possibly the best cuts by the groups – with a funky style that's kind of in the mode of The Emotions from the early 70s. 7-inch, Vinyl record

"Private Number" is one of the best singles to come out of Stax in the late 60's, and it's one of the greatest soul duets of all time!

Veda never cut an album for Stax, but she's right up there with Jean Knight, Inez Foxx, and Carla Thomas as one of the label's strong deep soul females!

A fantastic bit of modern soul – a rare Polydor single from the start of the 80s – but one that we'd put next to some of our favorite mellow soul groovers from the decade before! "Stay With Me" has a vibe that's almost Roy Ayers – midtempo, and funky stepping – a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
