VariousPlanter's Club Vol 3 Selected By DJ Samir – The Believer's Edition ... CD
EmArcy (Austria), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $16.99
This series is fast becoming one of our favorite collections of 70s soul ever – and it's got a groove that's unlike anything else! The Planter's Club sound is one that's laidback, yet funky – sophisticated and smooth, yet also totally righteous – a great space before the sound of 80s groove came to dominate heavily, and a mellow approach to a soulful dancefloor that was often overlooked during the disco years. Many of the tracks on the collection are by artists that you'll probably recognize, but they're also tunes that you won't know nearly as well – because they're often overlooked gems from full LP sets, and tracks that didn't break big at the time on singles. There's an approach here that's years ahead of its time – and a sound that's slightly in the mode of the Natural High collections on Warner, but somehow deeper overall. Titles include "Star In The Ghetto" by Prince Phillip Mitchell, "Why Can't We Be Lovers" by Coke Escovedo, "You & Your Baby Blues" by Solomon Burke, "I Just Tripped On A Piece Of Your Broken Heart" by Bobby Bland, "In The Mood" by Johnny Taylor, "No Matter Where" by David Ruffin, "Midnight & You" by Barry White, "One Minute From Love" by Marc Sadane, "Hang Tough" by Rockie Robbins, "There You Go" by Edwin Starr, "What You Won't Do For Love" by Roy Ayers, and "Never Gonna Stop" by Linda Clifford.

VariousPlanter's Club Vol 4 Selected By DJ Samir – The Believer's Edition ... CD
EmArcy (Austria), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $14.99
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 VariousPlanter's Club Selected By DJ Samir – The Believer's Edition ... CD
EmArcy (Austria), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wicked set of smooth soul tracks – one of the best collections of mellow grooves we've heard in a long time! The set was put together by Austrian DJ Samir, but it's all-American all the way through – with some really wonderful numbers from the 70s, famous tracks and rare ones stacked together nicely, in a way that makes sides in both categories sound really fresh together! Titles include the great Larry Mizell groover "Where Are We Going", done by Marvin Gaye – plus "Leave Me Alone" by Milton Wright, "To Know You Is To Love You" by Syreeta & Stevie Wonder, "Stars In Your Eyes" by Herbie Hancock, "Far Cry" by Marvin Gaye, "Slow Dance" by David Ruffin, "Get Off In It" by Eddie Hinton, "Woman" by James Brown, "I Just Can't Keep On Going" by Tyrone Davis, "Moonlight Lovin/Menage A Trois" by Isaac Hayes, "True Love" by Al Green, and "You're So Good" by Randy Brown. 14 tracks in all!

Warm groovers galore – an incredible package of uptempo soul tracks from the 70s – cuts that are deeper than disco, but every bit as tight – all brought together to showcase a tremendous generation in music! There's a great mix of classics and underground numbers here – and the package is overflowing with greatness, especially at this price – a whopping 23 tracks in all, including a fair bit we haven't turned up in years – some really rare singles that are great to finally have on CD! The set's easily one of our favorites in this excellent Backbeats series – and titles include "Talkin Bout Poor Folks" by Lou Edwards & Today's People, "Make Me Believe In You" by Patti Jo, "I'm In Need Of Love" by Lou Courtney, "Love Don't Come No Stronger" by Jeff Perry, "Am I Cold Am I Hot" by Bill Harris, "Keep On Trying" by LTG Exchange, "I Couldn't Believe It" by David Ruffin & Eddie Kendricks, "Are You Ready For This" by The Brothers, "Can We Share It" by Rick Shephard, "Lady In Red" by Ronnie Dyson, "Once I've Been There" by Norman Connors, "You Made A Believer Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "What About My Love" by Damaris, and "Get Out Of My Life" by Sharon McMahan.

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.
