Rare Groove

Dear all,

Strong rare groove update today, spanning funky jazz gems like Weldon Irvine - In harmony, the ultra rare original of the Swedish funk grail from Hörselmat, out-there psych funk from Sidney Owens, US originals of perennial favorites as Mike James Kirkland - Hang on in there and James Mason - Rhythm of life, not forgetting the scarce Bay Area funk set from Perfect Circle which we haven't had for quite some time. Also for your consideration we find arguably one of the best soul albums ever, Leroy Hutson's 1975 masterpiece including all the quality you could ever wish for.

Special mentions among new releases go to local Stockholm act Mount Analogue and their impressive debut 12", which alongside the remastered 3xLP issue of Fingers Inc - Another side has been the most played record in the shop this week.

Soul 45s and LPs!

Morning all,

60s and 70s soul special this time, LPs and 45s, featuring a bigger dose than normal of UK Tamla Motown and some Stateside releases, meaning we've had plenty of time to drool over those gorgeous glossy flipback covers! Two early Temptations releases, Marvin Gaye's "how sweet it is", early Stateside r&b comps, rare EPs from Contours and Supremes etc etc.

Of course not forgetting the US releases either - how about sealed originals of Chris Clark "Soul sounds", Bobby Jones "Talkin' 'bout Jones", Percy Sledge "Warm and tender soul" and Staple Singers "Amen", plus very nice copies of wanted LPs from Ascots (including the monster track "She's so indifferent"!) and Exciters, and not least a mono OG of the Tempests' northern gem "Would you believe".
