New VariousBlack Gold – Sought After Soul – Northern & Rare Soul Grooves ... CD
Castle (UK), Early 70s. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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, "Attica 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.

New VariousBeginners Guide To Jazz Funk (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note/Nascente (UK), 1970s. New Copy 3 CDs .... Out Of Stock
They might well call this a Beginners Guide To Blue Note Jazz Funk – given that most of the tracks here are from the hip 70s run at Blue Note Records! The vibe is wonderful – funky and soulful, but definitely with jazz at the forefront – as older soloists were finding new ways to reach their audiences through electric grooves – and younger players were making a huge name for themselves through a very inventive approach to their work! The 3CD set is a hell of a deal for the money – with 33 tracks that include loads of Blue Note gems, plus some 70s Capitol funk and soul tracks too – titles that include "As" by Gene Harris, "Dominoes" by Donald Byrd, "The Genie" by Bobby Lyle, "Down The Way" by John Lee & Gerry Brown, "Chicago Damn" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Sassy Soul Strut" by Lou Donaldson, "Think Twice" by Donald Byrd, "Tidal Wave" by Ronnie Laws, "London Town" by Light Of The World, "Windy C" by 100% Pure Poison, "Daisy Mae" by Raul De Souza, "Movin" by Brass Construction, "Prance On" by Eddie Henderson, "Music Is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz, "Abdullah & Abraham" by Chico Hamilton, "Cheshire Cat" by Ronnie Foster, "Funky Sneakers" by Willie Bobo, "Sunshine" by Nancy Wilson, "People Make The World Go Round" by Bobby Hutcherson, and "Sky Islands" by Caldera.

New VariousSoul Power (3CD set) ... CD
Castle (UK), 1970s. Used 3CDs .... Out Of Stock
A motherlode of rare 70s soul – 3 CDs worth of material, including many many classic rare groove cuts! The set's a perfect introduction to the world of mellow 70s soul and funk – and is pulled from the huge catalog of Sanctuary/Sequel/Castle Music, home to some of the best reissues we've stocked over the years. In fact, there's a lot of titles on here that were in print on other reissues on the label, but which have now departed – making this best-of set even more essential! Titles include "Love Has Finally Come At Last" by Bobby Womack & Patti Labelle, "Sexy Mama" by The Moments, "Black Joy" by Jimmy Helms, "Message From A Black Man" by The Whatnauts, "Be Thankful For What You've Got" by William DeVaughan, "You To Me Are Everything" by The Real Thing, "Don't Turn Around" by Black Ivory, "In The Bottle" by Brother To Brother, "House Of Strangers" by Jim Gilstrap, "Why Can't We Be Lovers" by Holland Dozier Holland, "Rip Off" by Laura Lee, "Michael The Lover" by Geno Washington, "Ain't Nothing But A Party" by The Showstoppers, "Goodbye Nothing To Say" by The Javells, and "Sending Out An SOS" by Rhetta Young. 52 tracks on 3 CDs!
