VariousBest Of Brunswick – For Groups – The Sound Of Chicago Soul ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99
A motherlode of great group soul – all of it pulled from the vaults of the legendary Brunswick Records! Brunswick really had an excellent way with group vocals – no surprise, given the strong connection that label had to the Chicago scene of the late 60s, a time and place where some mighty inventive, mighty wonderful work was going on! These tunes are way different than east coast material from the same time – more positive, upbeat, and righteous – often thanks to that loping groove provided by the Carl Davis production. The set also throws in a few tracks from later years and other scenes, and even a few instrumental groups too – and titles include "I'm Gonna Miss You" by The Artistics, "We Need Love" by The Directions, "You Got To Be The One" by The Chi-Lites, "I'm In Danger" by The Visitors, "Shaft" by Gregory James Edition, "Just A Melody" by Young Holt Unlimited, "I Love You Love You Completely" by Exit 9, "Someone Else's Arms" by Channel 3, and "Tired Of Being Alone" by The Lost Generation.

Circle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $13.99
Raw mod and gritty funk rock grooves from team Le Beat Bespoke – the fourth set in the series – bubblegum garage, fuzzed out pop, funky percussion and wailing organs – this just might be the best in the series to date! Compiler Rob Bailey out does himself here, once again digging deep for obscure mod singles, groovy slabs of garage rock, with a few left turns such as a heavy Latin gem and a more psych-steeped number or two – propulsive, exciting numbers regardless of genre affections and fiery dancefloor ready rock tunes all the way! 20 tailor made cuts on the CD – a brief notes on each tune, all of which are exciting and groovy as can be!

New VariousBrunswick Revisit – Selected By Tatsuo Sunaga ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A host of great soul cuts from Brunswick Records – all pulled together by Sunaga T! Sunaga has one of the grooviest, most joyous styles of all the Japanese DJs we can think of – and he really brings that approach into play here with some wonderful numbers from Brunswick – most of which are Chicago soul tunes from right at the end of the 60s or start of the 70s – usually produced with that soaring, leaping groove that was big on the Windy City at the time. Vocals are wonderful as the grooves – and titles include "We Need Love" by The Directions, "Stoned Out Of My Mind" by The Chi-Lites, "Love Land" by Lost Generation, "Who You Really Are" by Fred Hughes, "Honey Baby" by Ginji James, "I'll Bake Me A Man" by Barbara Acklin, "Don't Say Boodbye" by First Love, "Whatcha Gonna Do About Me" by Jackie Wilson, "How Insensitive" by Young Holt Unlimited, and "Love Hangover" by Touch.

New VariousMaster Of The Masterpiece – The Very Best Of Patrick Adams ... CD
P&P, 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The first collection ever to track the genius of Patrick Adams, the legendary producer who had a huge influence on 70s soul – starting with group harmony in the early part of the decade, and running through classic club in the latter half! These days, Adams is best-remembered as one half of the legendary P&P Records team (Peter Brown was the other half) – but this set starts before his P&P years, and begins with a range of great singles from the early 70s that Adams' warm touch on harmony vocals – then moves into a batch of even hipper uptempo disco tracks! The package pulls together work from a wide number of labels, all to showcase Adams' even wider range of talents – and it's great to have all this work together in one collection! 2CD version features 18 tracks in all – titles that include "I Need Love" by Daybreak, "Surrender" by Black Ivory, "I Just Want To Spend My Life With You" by Pete Warner, "You Believed In Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Executive Suite, "Kings & Queens" by Patrick Adams Institute, "I Need Love" by Daybreak, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Donna McGhee, "My Baby's Got ESP" by 4 Below Zero, "Dance Dance Dance" by Marta Acuna, "In The Bush" by Musique, "Weekend" by Phreek, "Atmosphere Strut (1979 rmx)" by Cloud One, "Lady Bug" by Bumblee Unlimited, "Flying High" by Cloud One, "Everybody Wants My Body (rmx)" by Sandra Herring, and "Come & Make Me Feel Good" by Shades Of Love with Katherine Joyce.

New VariousAtlantic Sound Of Burt Bacharach ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1960s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous tribute to the music of Burt Bacharach – but one that's almost completely comprised of soul and jazz songs recorded for Atlantic Records in the 60s! Hard to believe that Burt and Atlantic had so much in common – but as you'll hear in this massive 45 track set, Bacharach tunes worked surprisingly well for the label's soul singers – including both those working on the scene down south, and those closer to the Brill Building in New York! CD one features Atlantic Ladies – a whole host of female soul – and side two features Atlantic Men & Jazz – with a few instrumental cuts thrown in next to the male singers. Titles include "Please Stay" by the Drifters, "Any Day Now" by Carla Thomas, "April Fools" by Aretha Franklin, "Please Stay" by Lulu, "Let The Music Play" by Leslie Uggams, "Alfie" by Sweet Inspirations, "In The Land Of Make Believe" by Leslie Uggams, "The Look Of Love" by Carmen McRae, "I Say A Little Prayer" by Sergio Mendes, "This Guy's In Love With You" by Roy Ayers, "Please Stay" by The Persuaders, "Close To You" by Richard Evans, "Anyone Who Had A Heart" by Nino Tempo, "They Don't Give Medals To Yesterday's Heroes" by Ben E King, "Any Day Now" by Percy Sledge, "Walk On By" by Arif Mardin, and "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" by The Young Holt Unlimited.

New VariousBeats & Breaks – Just A Mellow Groove ... CD
Solid (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lots of beats and breaks – and the groove is a lot less mellow than you'd guess from the title! Tracks are pulled from some of the coolest indie labels of the 70s – Brunswick, HDH, and Salsoul – and the focus is on tracks that have lots of heavy drums and sharp changes – of the sort that were sampled heavily back in the day, but which also make for a nice batch of upbeat soul numbers too! Yet the collection is way more than just a sample-based collection of soul – as most of these numbers are pretty unusual, and not the kind of soul tracks that show up often on other compilations – and they link together surprisingly well, given the different sources from Chicago, Detroit, and New York. Titles include "Girl I Need You" by The Artistics, "I'm Bugging Your Phone" by The Smith Connection, "Seeing You Through The Eyes Of A Blindman" by Satisfaction Unlimited, "Lovin You Is Killin Me" by Moment Of Truth, "Where Will It End (Walter Gibbons mix)" by Love Committee, "I Got It" by New York Port Authority, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "Breakaway" by First Choice, "Taster Of The Honey" by The Jones Girls, and "You Don't Have To Go (edit)" by The Chi-Lites.

A killer batch of rare funky tunes – pulled from a host of tiny labels, and put together with a quality level that would blow away a crate full of of funky 45s!
