New VariousPlanter's Club Vol 4 Selected By DJ Samir – The Believer's Edition ... CD
EmArcy (Austria), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The 4th volume in this amazing series – filled with righteous mellow soul all the way through! There's a gentle groove here that we totally love – one that's slower and more laidback than any other collection we can think of, but which has a slyly funky undercurrent that shines through in every single tune. DJ Samir's done an incredible job of going past the obvious – digging hard through a variety of older LPs to pull out tracks that have a slinky, seductive, mellow soul approach – and which fit together perfectly in a collection like this. Titles include "Man Up In The Sky" by Barrett Strong, "Never Let You Go" by The Dramatics, "Somethin Bout Cha" by Latimore, "Pick Yourself Up" by John Whitehead, "Tryin To Love Two" by William Bell, "Stop Steppin On My Dreams" by Jerry Butler, "Let Your Love Rain Down On Me" by David Ruffin, "I Love You More & More" by Tom Brock, "Come Back To Me Lover" by Margie Joseph, "Somebody's Been Enjoying My Home" by Don Covay, and "Tear It On Down" by Marvin Gaye.

New VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia 2 ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous follow up to the first Spirit Of Philadelphia collection – released many years after that seminal set, and with an even farther-reaching selection of music! The first Spirit set focused on the best mellow and midtempo soul efforts of the Philly International label – but this one expands the groove even more to show the wide influence that Gamble & Huff had on the sound of Philly soul on other labels – especially the major labels, who'd begun following the indie lead in their productions by the mid 70s. There's a fair bit of work here by bigger names at the time, but all of it's got a stone Philly sound – and is either work by artists who first sprung out of the Philly scene directly, or others from different points around the country, and who'd made a trip to Philly in the 70s to record in a hipper groove! Titles include "Do You Remember Yesterday" by New York City, "Falling In Love With You" by Jimmy Ruffin, "It's Not What You Got" by Eddie Kendricks, "We Got Love" by Ben E King, "Don't Take Your Love" by The Whispers, "Can't Accept The Fact" by Gateway, "Straighten It Out" by Anglo-Saxon Brown, "Midnight Lady" by David Morris, "You Make Me Feel So Good Baby" by The Temprees, "It's Love" by The Persuaders, "In Love Again" by The Joneses, "Let's Go All The Way Down" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Walk Away From Love" by Jackie Moore, "I Don't Have Time To Worry" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, and "That's What Love Does" by Vince Montana & The Philly Sound Orchestra.
