SONG OF THE DAY The Apollos – Soul Funk-Tion
Today’s funky little nugget doesn’t even have a release date anywhere, at least none that I can find!! This is another ultra rare 45 from (at a guess) sometime in the early 1970’s. Issued on a label from Stockton, CA … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Erni Clark – By The Grace Of God, Am I
Such is the rarity of today’s track that it’s currently fetching nearly £1000 for a copy online and, it would seem, information on the band behind this little lost gem is just as scarce! The copy I’ve uploaded is a … Continue reading

SONG OF THE DAY Gloria Walker & The Chevelles – You Hit The Spot Baby
When it comes to funk and soul I can be really selective and have been known to spend hours sifting though random playlists in search of what I like. Today’s song is a product of one of those searches and … Continue reading
