They're not lying about the gold in
the title here – because most of these tracks are worth a fortune on original vinyl – and for good reason too! The 2CD package is easily one of the deepest-digging sets we've ever seen from Sanctuary – a tremendous collection of obscure soul tunes from the early 70s – a few of which have been previously been reissued by the label, but a lot more of which are seeing the CD light
of day for the first time ever here! The 40 track collection is really tremendous – like finding a pile of untouched 45s in
the back of an east coast store that nobody's visited for years – sparkling clean, and waiting to be rediscovered. The work here was originally issued on a variety of different east coast indies – most between 1970 and 1973 – and there's a really unified feel to the collection overall, as many tracks mix the rough and the smooth together beautifully. Titles include "Gotta Let Some Sunshine Into My Life" by Exceptionals, "Tell Me Your Name" by The New Sounds, "I'll Be There" by The Collection & Civics, "I Saw You There" by The Appointments, "You Don't Mean It" by Towanda Barnes, "I Smell Trouble" by Johnny De Vigne, "Alley Full Of Trash & Bottles" by Otis Smith, "I've Always Wanted Someone Like You" by And The Echoes, "One Chance" by Communicators & Black Experiences Band, "Where Is The Love" by Glen Miller, "Attic
a Massacre" by Willie & West, "I Don't See Me In
Your Eyes No More" by Willie & West, "Oh You Sweet Darling" by The Equations, "Let Love Grow" by Brenda Holloway, "I May Be Right" by Mill Street Depot, "I'm At Breaking Point" by The Trumains, "Clinton Park" by Master Plan, "Beautiful Philosophy" by The Internationals, and "Sitting At Home With My Baby" by Ray Lewis.
