A teeny-tiny Philly label, but a pretty great one too – home to just a handful of singles, but most of them the kind of rare soul sides that keep us digging over the years! The package features nearly ever key release on Lash – a mix of male soul numbers, group sides, and some sweet female numbers – all recorded over the space of a decade on the Philly scene – showing a great evolution over the years in style! All selections were originally produced by Howard Ravitsky, who owned the label, and definitely improved his chops along the way – and titles include "Get Goin" and "Tell Me" by Lee Johnson, "Here She Comes Now" by Sonny Fulton, "The Guy" by Fannie & The Varcells, "I'm Not The Only One" by Tommy White, "Don't Start That Again" by The Swans, "Inside O Me" by Honey & The Bees, "Treat Myself To A New Love" and "I'm Cuttin In" by The Inspirations, "I'm Happy Without You" by Anny Byers, "Got No Time" by Timmy Carr, "I Can Give You Love" by Benny Sigler, "Give Me What You're Givin Her" by Alfreda Brockington, and "He Brought Sunshine Into My Life" by Patty Hamilton. CD features 30 tracks in all, and full notes on the label.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Beautiful work from Brunswick Records – one of our favorite sources for mellow soul in the early 70s – and a label who could handle the genre like nobody else! Brunswick had a way of recording tracks in a style that's full, yet still very up close and personal too – and which ... CD

Philly Archives, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A treasure trove of female soul – all from the Philly scene of the 60s and 70s, and all of it rare enough to warrant the "never heard" promise in the title! The material all comes from the vaults of Philly producer Morris Bailey – not as big a name as Gamble & Huff, but ... CD

Smalltown Supersound (Sweden), 2014. New Copy
Some of the most striking work we've heard from Neneh Cherry in years – and a great follow-up to her previous project with The Thing! This set has Neneh working with producer Kieran Hebden – who returns Cherry to the offbeat, arty sound of her early years on the British scene – ... CD

Essential, 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy
A really unusual collection of rare soul material – one that dips deep into the years of 50s R&B, but also includes some great gems from the 60s and 70s too! The package shows the ever-growing interest in the link between rare soul and pre-soul material – particularly the kind of ... CD

Amazing harmony soul – two massive albums, plus bonus cuts too! Natural Four's first self-titled album on the Curtom label has an amazing "rough with the smooth" quality that really sets them apart from east coast groups of the time! Part of the strength of the set has to do with ... CD

Can't get away from this dog – and who'd want to anyway, with music this funky! The set features a load of rare Rufus Thomas material done during his early years at Stax – that pre-funk period when Thomas was only recording a bit for the label, but really coming up with some amazing ... CD

Mark Of The Beast
Motown/Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy
One of the nicer Willie Hutch albums on Motown – a killer batch of heavy and funky tracks that evoke some of his soundtrack work from the same time – as well as a more hard grooving album-oriented approach! Willie arranged and produced, and there's lots of nice moogy and guitary bits ... CD

Fantasy/Omnivore, 1973. New Copy
A nice little album from Sandra Rhodes – an artist who sung backup vocals on more than a few southern soul sides in her day – emerging here on her own in a style that's part country, part rock, and plenty touched by the Memphis soul scene from which she emerged! The album's produced ... CD
