MetrosSince I Found My Baby/I'll Never Forget You ... 7-inch
RCA/Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $7.99
A killer cut by The Metros – one of Detroit soul's best secrets in the 60s! The track is amazing – dipping, turning, and soaring with this groove that even knocks out most Motown classics – and it's backed here by an equally great number, making for one hell of a 45! 7-inch, Vinyl record

MetrosSweetest One ... CD
RCA/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
One of the greatest Northern Soul albums ever – completely great all the way through, and filled with songs that have been burning up dancefloors for years! The vocals are incredible – soaring harmonies that hold together perfectly, even when the grooves are hard and heavy – and the instrumentation is great too – handled by the Pied Piper team, who were kind of a Motown offshoot that featured Jack Ashford on vibes and percussion, Dave Hamilton and Ray Monette on guitar, and Joe Hunter on piano. Hunter and Ashford handled the arrangements – with a pitch-perfect sound that's completely sublime – sweet and grooving at the same time, and put together with the same kind of care you'd find at Motown – but with all the harder-edge qualities that always made indie work from Detroit so great. Every cut is a winner, and the set is the only full album ever done by the group – with cuts that include "Egyptian Love", "Till The End Of Time", "Since I Found My Baby", "Sweetest One", "Unlucky Sun", "I'll Never Forget You", "Do The Pied Piper", and "I'm With You All The Way". Great reissue – fully remastered from the original tapes – with new liner notes too! CD
(On the Dusty Groove label.)

New VariousTrip To Brazil Vol 4 – Summer Pop Samba ... CD
Boutique (Germany), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest collections of Brazilian music we've stocked in years – and one that goes for a very different focus than other funk or bossa-styled sets! The sound here is really unique – a mix of samba, soul, and MPB styles – all wrapped up in the sunny finish promised in the title, with a gentle groove and a really sweet sound overall! Much of the work on the collection is from the 70s, but there's also some excellent tracks from later years – tunes inspired by American soul styles of the time, and which provide a great precursor to some of the excellent soul that's currently coming out of the Brazilian scene! It's rare that our ears get surprised this much – and this pleasantly – and we're really digging the lost styles that run through this excellent collection! 2CD set features 38 tracks in all – including "Marilia" by Moraes Moreira, "Tempos Atras" by Azymuth, "Palco" by Gilberto Gil, "Azul" by Gal Costa, "Mulher De 15 Metros" by Fabio Fonseca & Luiz Melodia, "O Amigo De NY" by Emilio Santiago, "Charme Do Mundo" by Marina, "Como Vai Vai Bem" by Joyce, "Salve O Verde" by Quarteto Em Cy, "Mandamentos Black" by Gerson King Combo, "O Descobridor Dos Sete Mares" by Tim Maia, "Manuel" by Ed Motta, "Pra Esquecer A Vida" by Golden Boys, "Besta E Tu" by Novos Baianos, "Quero Um Baby Seu" by Caetano Veloso, and "Ziriguidum" by Baby Consuelo.

New VariousBoddie Recording Company – Cleveland, Ohio (5LP set) ... LP
Boddie/Numero, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 5LP ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest sets the Numero Group has ever released – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given their already-mighty catalog! Although the label issued a previous dip into the enigmatic Boddie Recording company of Cleveland, this massive package brings together a whopping 57 tracks from the Boddie studios and related labels – many of which have never been reissued before, even by Numero – and all of which offer up a mindblowing microcosm of the American scene in the 60s and 70s – a wealth of rare funk, soul, psych, gospel, and more – all of it the kind of gritty material that 45 collectors die for! But just as cool as the music is the package itself – a heavy box with a flap that fits around five LPs, two booklets, flyer reproductions, and even a Boddie greeting card! There's loads of rare photos, band information, studio details, and more – billed by Numero as a "self-contained record industry" in one box. Musically, the whole thing's right on par with other Numero releases – maybe even above them, given the wide range and depth of the collection – and artists include Bo & The Metros, Inter Circle, King James Version, Ricky Hodges, Jackie Russell, Angela Alexander, Frankie Pighee, Chantells, AC Jones, Harvey Hall, Headlines, Modern Detergents, Penny North, JC Akins, Little Anthony Mitchell, Gospel Fabulators, Royal Kings, Corinthian Singers, Brother Bill, Victory 5, and many more.
