Harold Melvin & The Blue NotesReaching For The World ... CD
ABC/PTG (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy ... $18.99
A really great post-Philly International album from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – the group's first after the departure of Teddy Pendergrass, and a set that shows them hardly missing a beat! The group are still recording at Sigma Sound, with Melvin at the production helm – and they've also got that great balance between a deep-voiced lead singer (new arrival David Ebo) and the soaring harmonies of the rest of the group. Tunes are wonderfully written – the right mix of personal and political from the group's biggest years – and the album's got a really great sense of pace and timing overall, maybe even more so than previous records. Titles include "Hostage", "He Loves You And I Do Too", "Stay Together", "Sandman", "Big Singing Star", and "Reaching For The World". CD

New Harold Melvin & The Blue NotesCollector's Item – All Their Greatest Hits ... LP
Philadelphia International, Early 70s/1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Not really the Collectors Item promised by the title – but an excellent collection of work from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, pulled from their earliest albums for Philly International! The set's worth it for two tracks alone – "I Miss You" and "Be For Real" – both from the first album, and both masterpieces of slow drawn-out, monologue-centered soul – the sort that Teddy Pendergrass did with the group, at a level that was way beyond other harmony soul on the east coast at the time! Other tracks are good too, and offer up the group in some upbeat, grooving modes that are equally wonderful – thanks to vocals from Teddy P! Other titles include "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Where Are All My Friends", "Bad Luck", "The Love I Lost", and "Wake Up Everybody". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue NotesTruth Has Come To Light ... CD
Glades/Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A strange but great chapter of The Blue Notes – working here without Harold Melvin or Teddy Pendergrass, but still sounding pretty great on their own! This version of The Blue Notes is a male quartet – not the Melvin group with Sharon Paige who were recording for ABC – and they get some fresh help in the studio from George Perry, who brings in this soaring groove that still echoes earlier Philly work, but also has a bit more of a clubby vibe overall! The style's never disco, but makes for some great uptempo soul – the sort that really lets the group's wonderful vocal style soar strongly – a rich blend that's totally great even without Teddy, and which has a great mix of raspy leads and warm harmonies. Titles include the wicked jazzy dancer "The Girl Makes Me Wanna Sing" – plus "It's Over", "Memories", "Standing By You Girl", "People Are Running Around", and "The Truth Has Come To Light". CD

Teddy PendergrassTeddy Pendergrass ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1977. Used ... $5.99
Teddy Pendergrass – we love you! This is one of Mr. P's greatest albums of smooth mellow soul – recorded after he left Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and began working in a wonderfully warm solo style that had a huge influence on male vocal soul for years to come! The sound here is tremendous – nearly perfect all the way through, with a great balance between class, sophistication, and soul – clearly an indication that Teddy made the right move by going on his own. The record features the classic "The Whole Town's Laughing At Me", plus lots of other nice material like "Be Sure", "Somebody Told Me", "You Can't Hide From Yourself", "Easy Easy Got To Take It Easy", and "The More I Get The More I Want".

New John Legend & The RootsWake Up ... CD
GOOD/Columbia, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
John Legend shakes loose of the contemporary pop soul style of his previous couple of records with a comparatively raw and direct soul vibe – revisiting some of best socially aware, emotionally resonant and still relevant songs of the 60s & 70s! The best tracks on the set are the ones that have the rawest, most live sounding groove – and there's plenty of that, as he's backed by The Roots. There's no denying John Legend's truthful love of this material, and he sings with genuine depth. They wisely choose numbers with lyrics that stand true to this day, a few of which feature fresh rhymes by guest MCs that further bridge the eras. The track selection is excellent – covering classics by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway and they also go as deep as Baby Huey & Eugene McDaniels. Includes "Hard Times" with Black Thought, "Compared To What", "Wake Up Everybody" with Common & Melanie Fiona, "Our Generation" feat CL Smooth, "Little Ghetto Boy" feat Black Thought (plus the prelude with Malik Yusef), "Hang On In There", "Wholy Holy", "Shine" and more.

New Teddy PendergrassLife Is A Song Worth Singing ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from the early solo years of Teddy Pendergrass! The record's a monstrous mix of mellow soul and sophisticated tunes – one that pushes Teddy way past his earlier role in Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, into mature male soul territory that few others could match! The sound is sublime throughout – easily the next phase for the Gamble & Huff empire, and way past the easier Philly hit modes of a few years before. Titles include the wonderful "Close The Door", the kind of classy upscale modern soul that kept Philly going strong into the end of the 70s – plus "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "When Somebody Loves You Back", and "Cold, Cold World". LP, Vinyl record album

New Philadelphia International All-StarsLet's Clean Up The Ghetto ... LP
Philadelphia International, Late 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little record that's easily one of the most righteous albums ever from Philadelphia International – a set designed to "give back" to the communities who supported the label strongly in the 70s, as a unique fund-raising effort, done before such records were commonplace! The Philly International roster of stars teamed up to put out this stunning set of tracks aimed at cleaning up the "ghettoes", both physical and mental, that continue to haunt the African-American communities in the US – and the set features key new numbers, plus a few more older tracks pulled from other Philly records that really work well to support the righteous message of the set. The centerpiece is the long title cut – "Let's Clean Up The Ghetto" – which has Lou Rawls doing a monologue about the garbage strike in New York, then launches into performances by Teddy Pendergrass, The O'Jays, Billy Paul, and Archie Bell. Other highlights include "The Big Gangster" by The O'Jays, "Old People" by Archie Bell, "Everybody's Talkin" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, and "Now Is The Time To Do It" by Teddy Pendergrass.

New VariousPhiladelphia International Classics – The Tom Moulton Remixes (4CD set) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
Massive mixes from the mighty Tom Moulton – a huge 4CD package that not only includes some classic lost and rare mixes from the 70s, but also a whopping 17 previously unreleased Moulton mixes, appearing here for the first time ever! If there's anyone who's ever been well-suited to reworking a Philly groove, it's Tom – given his long standing association with the soul scene in the City Of Brotherly Love – and his crucial role in pushing soul tracks into the clubs during the 70s. As with most of Tom's best work, the mixes here are richly faithful to the originals – and never try to overstate themselves at all, just focus on the best elements, and bring them to the forefront of the groove! 4CDs, 31 tracks, and Moulton remixes of "Back Stabbers" by The O'Jays, "Dirty Ol Man" by Three Degrees, "Trusting Heart" by The Trammps, "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice, "Nights Over Egypt" by The Jones Girls, "I Don't Love You Anymore" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Year Of Decision" by Three Degrees, "Slow Motion" by Johnny Williams, "The Love I Lost" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "She's A Winner" by The Intruders, "Trammps Disco Theme/Zing Went The Strings" by The Trammps, "Let's Groove" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "The Devil Made Me Do It" by Robert Upchurch, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Party Time Man" by The Futures, and "See You When I Get There" by Lou Rawls.

Philadelphia International/Sony, 1977/1978/1979/1980/1981. New Copy 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An amazing run of music from the legendary Teddy Pendergrass – almost all of his early and best work for the Philalphia International label – packaged here in one mighty nice package! The set features five full albums, plus a few bonus tracks – all of which feature Teddy stepping out very strongly as a solo act, after key years with Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes! Pendergrass is amazing on these records – and really set a whole new standard for the male voice in soul music – a mode that's mature and sophisticated, yet still richly full of feeling – fragile, yet strong at the same time – and an undeniably new force, especially on the ballads. The set features the albums Teddy Pendergrass, Life Is A Song Worth Singing, Teddy, TP, and It's Time For Love – with classics that include "Is It Still Good To Ya", "Love TKO", "I Can't Live Without Your Love", "It's Time For Love", "Life Is A Circle", "Turn Off The Lights", "Only You", "Get Up Get Down Get Funky Get Loose", "Close The Door", "The More I Get The More I Want", and "You Can't Hide From Yourself". 41 tracks in all – including the bonus tracks "Get Up Get Down (disco version)" and "Only You (single)".

New VariousSound Of Philadelphia – Gamble & Huff's Greatest Hits ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little set of classic 70s Philly – one of the best collections of work by the team of Gamble & Huff we've ever seen! There's nothing too obscure or offbeat here – and instead, the collection focuses mostly on the massive crossover tracks produced by the pair back in the day – the landmark soul that not only redefined the sound of Philly, but also the 70s as well! And while most of this material has been on the market often over the years, it's still pretty darn nice to see it all clustered together in one place. Most titles are the full-length album versions – and the CD features 14 tracks that include "Me & Mrs Jones" by Billy Paul, "When Will I See You Again" by Three Degrees, "TSOP" by MFSB, "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice, "I'll Always Love My Mama" by The Intruders, "Use Ta Be My Girl" by The O'Jays, "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" by Lou Rawls, "The Love I Lost" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Back Stabbers" by The O'Jays, "Love Train" by The O'Jays, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Close The Door" by Teddy Pendergrass, and "If You Only Knew" by Patti LaBelle.
