New VariousSi Para Usted Vol 2 – The Funky Beats Of Revolutionary Cuba ... CD
Waxing Deep (Canada), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing follow-up to the first volume in this series – packaged even more beautifully than before, and filled with wonderful grooves we've never heard before! The label's really dug deep this time around – going way past the obvious Cuban stars who've crossed over to our market here – and focusing instead on some of the lesser-known artists and combos who were making some really massive music back in the 70s! There's a very heavy dose of funk on most cuts here – but the rhythms also show plenty of Afro-Cuban influence as well – a cool cooking up of classic and contemporary Cuban modes, with a sound that's completely sublime. The first volume really opened our ears, but this second set is blowing our minds – and our collective hats are off to the gents at Waxing Deep for doing such a great job! Titles include "El 4 5 6" by Los Brito, "Vehicle" by Orquesta Cubana De Musica Moderna, "Safari Salvaje" by Los Rapidos, "Suspirando Por El Chikichaka" by Los Caneyes, "El Son De Victoria" by Hilario Duran, "Para Que Niegas" by Los Papines, "El Cristal" by Los Barba, "El Siglo De Libertad" by Grupo FA5, "Y Aparecio El Trombon" by Juan Pablo Torres, "Siboney" by Los Llamas, and "Vanguardia Y Juventud" by Sonopop, CD

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.

New VariousWants List 2 – Another 18 Soulful Rare Grooves ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of funky nuggets – one that's overflowing with hip soul, funk, and break tracks! The set's the second in a series put together by the staff of London's Soul Brother Records – and like the first, it features some of the most sought-after rare grooves and sample tracks from the 70s – a rich array of titles from a variety of different labels, all collected with a keen ear for the older tracks that are still breaking big well into the 21st Century! And since these guys also run a record store themselves, they've gone way past the obvious – and have chosen an all-essential batch of tunes that aren't easily available on the market, including some killer tracks from major labels that we've been waiting years to see reissued. Titles include "Oops Here I Go Again" by Edna Wright, "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More" by Kellee Patterson, "Sho Nuff" by Sly Slick & Wicked, "All I Want Is You" by Four Flights, "Live For Love" by GC Cameron, "I Feel So At Home Here" by Michelle Wiley, "Shake It Up" by The Vibrations, "My Music" by Samuel Jonathan Johnson, "Heaven" by Ruth Copeland, "It's Got To Be Mellow (1976)" by Leon Mellow, "Making Room For Love" by Alton McClain & Destiny, and "When We're Makin Love" by Denise LaSalle.
