✨✧ Living FunkLet Your Mind Take The Place Of Your Body (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Funk Music Unlimited, 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The title here reminds us of an early gem by Kool & The Gang – and the fast funk style of the tune does too – except it's a lot more soaring and jammy – with bold horns, a great organ solo, and a massive breakdown that has very cool congas supporting a heavy bass! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Living FunkFools Love/Silver Black Summer Day ... 7-inch
Funk Music Unlimited, 1973. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The group may be named Living Funk, but "Fools Love" is a great bit of mellow sweet soul – a tune that moves at a slow pace that really lets the vocals unfold in a heartbreaking kind of way! The funk returns on the flipside – as "Silver Black Summer Day" has loads ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ David BowieBe My Wife/Art Decade (live Perth 1978) (pic disc) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, 1977/1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Fantastic work from the Berlin period of David Bowie – one of his few catchy tunes from the time, backed with an unreleased live recording! "Be My Wife" is fantastic – not only does the tune have all the darkness of the Heroes/Low period, but it also has a surprisingly ... (Rock, Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Bob & Gene/InversionsIt's Not What You Know (It's Who You Know)/Version ... 7-inch
Daptone, Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.98
A sweet take on this tune by Bob & Gene – given a Jamaican groove on both sides, thanks to help from The Inversions! The main cut bubbles along with a bit of a rocksteady vibe next to the duo's vocals – still very much the main song at the core, but augmented with a Kingston soul ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Almeta LattimoreThese Memories/Oh My Love ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A beautifully soulful track from Almeta Lattimore – an obscure Detroit singer, but a great one too! "These Memories" has a warmly mellow feel, but it still moves a bit too – with a full sense of sound and style that reminds us a lot of Gloria Scott at her best! "Oh My ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Keni BurkeRisin’ To The Top/Hang Tight ... 7-inch
RCA/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $9.99
A massive jam from Keni Burke – easily his greatest tune ever, and the kind of track we'd hardly have imagined back when he was a little tyke in the Five Stairsteps! The track's got a thumping, stomping kind of groove that really gets going from the start – and the vocal hook is a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Linda CliffordMarch Across Land/Only Fooling Myself ... 7-inch
Paramount/Expansion (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite tracks ever from Chicago soul singer Linda Clifford – a mellow bit of funk written and produced by Leroy Hutson – and quite different than any of Linda's later clubby work! In fact, the whole thing's got a righteous, positive vibe – one that really feels ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lou Lawton/Walter WilsonKnick Knack Patty Wack/Love Keeps Me Crying ... 7-inch
Wand/Outta Sight (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two 60s stormers! "Knick Knack Patty Wack" is a wicked little groove – atune that begins with just handclaps and vocals at the start, then rolls into a vamping soul style that's completely outta sight – and which really fits the playful lyrics of the song! The flipside ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Soul SearchersBlow Your Whistle/Ashley's Roach Clip ... 7-inch
Soul Brother (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two of the greatest cuts ever from the Soul Searchers – back to back on a funky 45! "Blow Your Whistle" is a killer – an example of that tight, hard funk sound that would make the group a huge influence on the GoGo scene in years to come. And "Ashley's Roachclip" ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Simpson UniquityRunning Away (funky vibes, Diplomats Of Soul dub) ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
A great remake of one of the biggest cuts ever from the legendary Roy Ayers – done here with a version that's got even more vibes than the original! In fact, the core groove is very much like the Ayers recording, but the cut soon moves into loads of jazzy vibes – and also has a great ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ MagnumEvolution (Beats Edit)/It's The Music That Makes Us Do It ... 7-inch
Phoenix/Jamie, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 12.98
One of the most legendary tracks ever from Philly's Magnum – a well-rounded bit of funky percussion, tight horns, and these electric piano lines that feel more Nigerian than the usual American funk of the time! This edit brings up the beats a bit more, but leaves the core groove nicely ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lee DorseyEverything I Do Gonh Be Funky/There Should Be A Book ... 7-inch
Amy, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Hard hard hard New Orleans soul! Lee's in perfect form on both sides – especially "Everything I Do", one of his best-ever tracks! Allen Toussaint produced, and the material is a lot rawer than later stuff by Lee! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Pink label pressing in a Bell sleeve.)

✨✧ ApostlesBanko Woman/Faith Luck & Music ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
Fast funky grooves from The Apostles – one of the few 70s Afro combos who could maybe go head to head with the sharpest American funk acts of the time! "Banko Woman" is a wickedly quick barrage of basslines, snapping percussion, and very cool guitar – a tune that's got a bit ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandPIMP/Police In Helicopter ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A wicked set of funky steel drums – a bad-stepping number from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, and just the kind of hard funk cut we're always digging for on steel drum records! We hardly ever find gems this good though – as "Pimp" has these slow-snapping drums that make ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
