New VariousNYC Salsa 3 – The Incendiary Sound Of Latin New York ... CD
Fania, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
New York's on fire with this cooking batch of salsa tracks from the 70s – mostly numbers pulled from the catalog of the mighty Fania Records, plus some of the other smaller imprints who've come under its wing! The music here is the stuff that pushed Fania over the top at the time – bold, beautiful Latin grooves that are filled with righteous power, enough so to extend far past their NYC origins, to a much larger audience worldwide. As with other volumes in the series, the track list is very well-chosen, and the package is equally well done overall – and the CD features a total of 16 tracks that include "Papa Boco" by Latin Tempo, "Baila Que Baila" by Tipica 73, "Asi Son Bongo" by Chamaco Ramirez, "Con Su Permiso" by Hector Rivera, "Avisale" by La Muralla, "Aprovechate" by Orquesta Flamboyan, "Los Cabezones" by Tommy Olivencia, "Enamorado" by Los Kimbos, "Mi Timbal" by Ray Rodriguez, and "De Se Mismo Trago" by Pete Bonet & Louie Ramirez.

New VariousMood Mosaic Vol 11 – Feeling Funky! – The Cult Tracks Given Birth By The Superheroes Of The 70s ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
What a subtitle – "The Cult Tracks Given Birth By The Superheroes Of The 70s"! And if you're thinking that the tracks are by Wolverine, Firestorm, and other 70s comic book creations, that's not the case – as the superheroes here are funky ones! More specifically, the tracks are great little groovers from the funky 45 underground – the kind of groups that really bubbled under in the charts at the time, many of whom never cut a full LP, but who released some monstrously great singles that made more than a bit of impact at the time. The set's got 20 tracks in all – all hard and funky – with titles that include "Super Soul Brother" by Timmie Rodgers, "Stand Up (part 1)" by Maskman & The Agents, "Spanky's Day Off" by Swingin Soul Machine, "It's The Real Thing (part 1)" by Electric Express, "Get It" by Wilmer & The Dukes, "Feelin Funky" by Brother Soul, "Cramp Your Style" by All the People, "Can't Get Satisfied" by Brother Jack McDuff, "Dynomite" by Tony Camillo's Bazuka, and "Foxy Lady" by Don Thompson.

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.
