Delia Gartrell - I Must Be Doing Something Right / Fight Fire With Fire
Delia Gartrell
I Must Be Doing Something Right / Fight Fire With Fire
7" | 2017 | EU | Original (Rocafort)
9,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Another 1960s 7inch soul gem, unearthed and held up to the light courtesy of Rocafort Records. The heroine of this story is Atlanta-born Delia "Dee Dee" Gartrell, schooled in the art of gospel and jazz, but banned by her mother to sing any R'n'B…. that is until Delia met the Mighty Hannibal, a powerhouse bluesy soul producer and future husband who put her up where she belonged and got her singing about stuff that her mother wouldn't have approved of.Mid-tempo stomper, 'I must be doing something right', is an irresistible sassy classic, originally the B side of the single 'If you got what it takes (they can't take what you got)' released on Maverick Records. The horns and drums tease the toe-tapping rhythm along while Delia belts out with raw fire about not being a great looker, cook or housecleaner for her man, "but when it's time for sleeping, he thinks I'm something outtasight. I must be doing something right". Cheeky in spirit, chunky in swing. Full of all the urgency and feistiness you'd expect from a repressed southern soul vocalist.Written by Delia and Hannibal, 'Fight fire with fire' boasts a similar production style but this time with a prominent electric guitar riff, emotive strings and heavenly backing vocals. Describing the cheating man who's gonna get exactly what he dishes out, Delia reads out the riot act with more punchy promise than threat.A must for all 7inch soul collectors, a thing of rare beauty.
Hank Carbo - Fox In A Mini Skirt / Bad Luck
Hank Carbo
Fox In A Mini Skirt / Bad Luck
7" | 2017 | EU | Original (Rocafort)
8,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
It's time for another 7" foot-stomping bonanza from Rocafort Records, digging deep into the rich New Orleans repertoire of the Carbo family. All brothers were heavily involved in the 60s Crescent City funk scene, so tight and 'on the one' that it's easy to understand why Hank suspects a bit of plagiarism from the Godfather himself."Fox in a mini skirt" is slice of soulful cheek and attitude, based on foxy beauty who once slunk across the dance floor at one of his gigs. Popular on the Northern Soul scene, it matches vocal urgency with a driving beat fuelled along by manic drums, guitars and horns. The irresistible background hey hey hey's and funky funky broadway's make it instantly memorable and immediately danceable."Bad Luck" (not to be confused with the Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes classic) is a slower paced funk stinker, screaming out JB horns and wah wah guitars à la 'Ain't it funky now'. In keeping with the depth of New Orleans songwriting, the lyrics are worth a listen and reveal a heartfelt plea "If it weren't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all". In fact, the whole song is based on a spell of unfortunate circumstances involving Hank's sideswiped new car and an erroneous warrant for his arrest. However, the only real crime committed here is that at 2'22", this track is shockingly over too soon!
Papas' Got - I Wanna Love At Kent Edit (Damaged Sleeve)
Papas' Got
I Wanna Love At Kent Edit (Damaged Sleeve)
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Rocafort)
10,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
We just found a box of these great in-demand 12inches in our warehouse. The Vinyl is flawless but most of the covers are slightly damaged at the seem (close to a split). Due to the fact, that there is no repress in sight - we decided to sell them a little cheaper. "Growing up in Jamaica, young Rowland Abrahams loved dancing to James Brown so much that he earnt himself the nickname 'Papas' Got'. He later moved to Paris and in 1979 more or less single-handedly recorded the 'I Wanna Love' LP on the RGR label. Admittedly not an album with a heavy yield, the only pearl being the title track which Rocafort Records are releasing as a 12"" with an exclusive Al Kent edit on the B side."
Kind & Kinky Zoo - Wonder Zebra / V.L.A.M. (Lack Of Afro Remix)
Kind & Kinky Zoo
Wonder Zebra / V.L.A.M. (Lack Of Afro Remix)
7" | 2016 | Original (Rocafort)
7,99 €*
Release:2016 / Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
After the successful "La Jupe Volante" project, whose B-side has been synchronised on the Australian TV series the Offspring (Channel Ten); Kind & Kinky Zoo are back with some hard hitting pure laidback style music. They have received massive support both in the clubs and on the airwaves and now they are back, with on the flipside the help of Lack of Afro, or Adam Gibbons as he's known to his psychiatrist. Two pistol paced and good-natured tunes as they are very capable of. A Side - WONDER ZEBRA Somewhere between retro psychedelia and afrobeat lies the Wonder Zebra. Speeding along à la Calibro 35, the feel is frantic and thrilleresque. Now wonder Kind & Kinky Zoo are a big hit on foreign TV shows. B Side - V.L.A.M. (LOA remix) A breezy bite-sike chunk of head nodding, foot tapping funky beats. Led by a warm, sunny flute and irresistable rhodes, rather reminiscent of a 60s slice of dancefloor-friendly acid jazz. Small but perfectly formed.

DJ Format & Abdominal
We're Back / Diamond Hammer
7" | 2017 | EU | Original (Rocafort)
8,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Not a label to just rummage around in old drawers, the Rocafort heartbeat also pounds to the sound of the fresh and current. Coming at you like a welcome slap on the back from two familiar faces, this latest 7" release sees DJ Format & Abdominal reminding you why you may be pushing 40 but can't turn your back on the funky rap thing.Taken from their new LP "Still Hungry", these mature B-boys continue to breeze effortlessly through what they do best: bold sharp beats, ingenious instrumentation, a crisp, fresh lyrical style that harks back to the carefree early 80s."We're back" does what it says on the tin. DJ Format whips up a banging soulful groove, buoyed along by an upbeat flute and Abdominal's accomplished, perfect diction – as always, voracious and loquacious. "Diamond hammer", a reference to "excavating gems" is more frantic and scratchy, equipped with horror film organ loops and psychedelic guitars. A pumped up, supercharged affair delivered in brash, brazen style by the most likeable duo in rap.

LP | 1967 | UK | Reissue (Rocafort)
24,99 €*
Release:1967 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
A full LP recorded in 1967 that had never seen the light of day. Recorded by the finest musicians in the New-York Latin scene, including Tito Puente, Jimmy Sabater, Louie Ramírez and many more, it's still a mystery to find out that this album was never released at the time despite being so good.
