VariousLooking Good – Mod Club Classics ... CD
BGP (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Stormin soul – and a killer set of upbeat 60s numbers! The package was put together for the UK mod scene, but it's a great batch of American tracks from the classic years of soul – not really Northern, not really southern – but kind of a hard-swinging approach to the music that makes for a really lively package overall! The set's got 20 tracks in all, all thumpin, bumpin, and gruntin-type numbers – with titles that include "Do The Whoo Pee" by Sugar Pie Desanto, "Lay This Burden Down" by Mary Love, "Make Me Yours" by Bettye Swann, "I Keep Forgetting" by Chuck Jackson, "I've Got Papers On You Baby" by BB King, "Hole in The Wall" by George Stone, "Have Love Will Travel" by Richard Berry & The Pharoahs, "Keep My Woman Home" by Danny White, "Mama Julie" by Terry & Jerry, and "I Got A Woman" by Billy Hawks.

Since first breaking ground in the mid 90s, Henry Street has been there for some of best dancefloor guru's of their day, including Todd Terry, DJ Duke, Armand Van Helden, DJ Sneak, Kenny Dope, and Johnick to name but a few – with classic house rooted, but future ready grooves that stand the test the test of time.

VariousBeach Diggin' Vol 3 – Hand Picked By Guts & Mambo (with download) ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A deep selection of grooves that are warm and breezy, but also nicely tripped out at times – way more than a simple compilation of sunny sounds – and instead a globe-spanning set of diverse gems! Volume 3 includes sun toasted sounds from tropical climates, plus similar-minded numbers from the US and even Canada – from easygoing Rhodes-led soul from Trinidad & Tobago, to breezy brass from Tunisia, to Jamaican disco and well beyond! The tunes might go as far back as the 60s, but certainly includes some great ones from the 70s and early 80s – all pretty obscure stuff that's well worth digging up! 14 tracks in all, including "Feel Like Making Love" by Gene Lawrence, "Moin Epi Vou" by The Group NSI, "Mystic Mood" by Billy Cole, "Soul Brother" by Dalton, "I Want To Make It With You" by Bobbie Houston, "Wars In Space Dub" by Brother Resistance", "I Need Your Love" by Scherzando and more.

VariousBlue Bossa – Vols 1 to 3 – Cool Cuts From The Tropics (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
The Latin side of Blue Note Records – and the Brazilian one, too – served up here in a series that brought together classic work from the label in a special sort of groove – tunes that are maybe more influenced by south of the border rhythms than you'd expect from the soul jazz and hardbop artists who originally made the records! There's a bit of bossa here, but the rhythms open up into a fair bit more, too – and it's great to hear the difference in these musicians as they change things up from straighter bop modes, and use the new grooves to open up their solos and rework their phrasing too! This side of Blue Note was sometimes buried in a world of collectors looking for more familiar hardbop, but it really lives again, thanks tot he Blue Bossa collection. 3CD set features 41 tracks in all – including "Afreaka" by Lee Morgan, "Avila & Tequila" by Hank Mobley, "Chitlins Con Carne" by Kenny Burrell, "Congalegre" by Horace Parlan, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Girl From Ipanema" by Lou Rawls, "La Fiesta" by Stanley Turrentine, "Headin South" by Horace Parlan, "La Malanga" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Mama Inez" by Grant Green, "Swingin The Samba" by Horace Silver, "Upa Neguinho" by Duke Pearson, "Mambo Inn" by Grant Green, "Ghana" by Donald Byrd, "Love For Sale" by Dexter Gordon, "Samba De Orfeu" by Charlie Rouse, "Afrodisia" by Kenny Dorham, "Sambop" by Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio, "Loi" by Ike Quebec, "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Congo Lament" by Ike Quebec, "Corcovado" by Grant Green, "Tin Tin Deo" by James Moody, "El Gaucho" by Wayne Shorter, and "Stormy" by Duke Pearson.

VariousBlue Break Beats – Vols 1 to 3 – The Jazz Break Beats That Made Hip Hop Hits (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
A special package that brings together the first three volumes in this landmark series – one that had the Blue Note label digging back in their catalog and completely re-thinking their approach to reissues – given the new popularity of jazz in the hip hop sample world! As you'd guess from the title, the music here is very strongly oriented in the mode of "breaks", or tracks that were sampled for later hip hop and club recordings – classic jazz tunes from the glory days of Blue Note that have gone onto live again, thanks to the keen ears and inventive work of more contemporary DJs and producers. After all these years, The Blue Breakbeats series still stands as one of the best illustrations of the funkier side of the label – and titles include "Blue Juice" by Jimmy McGriff, "Groovin For Mr G" by Richard Groove Holmes, "Street Lady" by Donald Byrd, "Jasper Country Man" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Higga Boom" by Gene Harris, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Howlin For Judy" by Jeremy Steig, "Sho Nuff Mellow" by Rueben Wilson, "Ode To Billie Joe" by Lou Donaldson, "Don't Call Me N*gger Whitey" by Gene Harris, "Mystic Brew" by Ronnie Foster, "Ground Hog" by Duke Pearson, "Ummh" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Ain't It Funky Now" by Grant Green, "Your Love Is Just Too Much" by Gene Harris, "Kudu" by Eddie Henderson, "The Weasil" by Donald Byrd, "It's Your Thing" by Lou Donaldson, "The Worm" by Jimmy McGriff, "Orange Peel" by Reuben Wilson, "The Kumquat Kids" by Eddie Henderson, "Good Humor Man" by Blue Mitchell, "Viva Tirado" by Gerald Wilson, "Turtle Walk" by Lou Donaldson, "Final Comedown" by Grant Green, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Joe Williams, "You've Made Me So Very Happy" by Lou Rawls, and "Oliloqui Valley" by Herbie Hancock.

VariousDisco Fantasy – Songs Inspired By Stage, Screen, & Superheroes ... CD
Essential, Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
Some of the most playful tracks of the disco generation – songs that draw a heavy inspiration from film and TV – sometimes by offering up clubby covers of the original versions, sometimes by taking off in great new directions of their own! There's a decidedly camp vibe to the set – as some older themes are updated with disco rhythms and soaring strings – or other tracks take off into the "fantasy" territory of the title, by bringing a strong 70s vibe to subjects that you might not expect. Our all-time favorite cut here is the wonderful "Superman" by Celi Bee & The Buzzy Bunch – and other cuts include "Night Fever" by Carol Douglas, "Star Wars" by Boris Midney, "Star Trek (ext)" by Shufflin Tymes, "The Entertainer" by JR Bailey, "Love Boat" by Jack Jones, "Theme From Swat" by Inner City Symphony, "More" by Carol Williams, "Don't Cry For Me Argentina (12" mix)" by Festival, and "Secret Agent Man (ext mix)" by Ultimate.

VariousDJ Qbico Plays The Afro Tribal Congo Bongo Rhythm ... LP
EP Sound (Italy), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
Loads of highly percussive tracks – served up on this excellent collection of rare records from the African scene of the 70s – all with the usual perfect selection of choices we've come to appreciate from the DJ Qbico series! As with the others, there's not much here in the way of notes – some artists included appear to be Ozobby Horn, Frank Kojo, and Degbe Dosse – and rather than overload you with cultural context, Qbico just lets the music to the talking – as diverse drum-heavy tracks move together wonderfully – sometimes fast, sometimes at midtempo – with varied instrumentation on keyboards, horns, and guitar – plus occasional vocals too!

✨✧ VariousDoing Our Thing – More Soul From Jamdown 1972 to 1982 ... CD
Cree (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
A long-overdue second volume of the Soul From Jamdown series – issued 15 years after the first one, and maybe even more incredible overall! As before, the focus here is on Jamaican music that draws very direct inspiration from American soul – sometimes as cover versions of famous tracks, sometimes as answer songs to work from the US – but all set to very groovy reggae, rocksteady, and early dancehall rhythms! The vocals are wonderful – many of the singers really take inspiration from the best years of American deep soul and sweet soul – and bring a heartbreaking vibe to the lyrics – and while the earliest years of Jamaican soul has been well-documented, these later years are more unusual territory – and beautifully covered here. The package comes with a huge amount of notes, and also includes lots of images of the original records – and titles include "Too Late" by Augustus Pablo, "Cornbread Earl & Me" by Dillinger, "Supernatural Thing" by Richard Ace, "Breezin" by Willie Lindo, "Ain't That Loving You" by Hortense Ellis, "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" by John Holt, "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" by Junior Byles, "Special Request To The Manhattans" by Phillip Frazer, "Thin Line Between Love & Hate" by BB Seaton, "Do Your Thing" by Glen Adams, and "Johnny Dollar" by Dave Barker.

VariousEccentric Soul – The Dynamic Label ... CD
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
That's a sweet image on the cover – and the grooves inside are equally dynamic too – a really wonderful collection that's easily one of the most compelling in Numero's Eccentric Soul series! The work here all hails from the tiny San Antonio scene of the late 60s – but much of the music has a sound that's way different than you might expect from Texas soul – often with great harmonies that recall the best of the east coast groups of the time, and occasionally with a few brown-eyed touches that echo the style of East LA! There's a wonderfully heartbreaking feel to many of these tracks – and the set's heavy focus on mellower numbers is totally great – and gives the whole thing a wonderful late nite sort of vibe that's usually quite hard to find in compilations like this. As usual, Numero's done a great job with the notes and history of the label – but the music alone is more than enough – a heady brew of cuts that include "Little Girl Blue" and "Try Loving Me" by The Webs, "I Gotta Know" by Tonettes, "Give Your Love To Me" and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Little Jr Jesse & The Tear Drops, "Cry & Wonder Why" by Doc & Sal, "Must Be Alright" and "Hey It's Love" by The Commands, "She's Gotta Have Soul" by Bobby Blackmon & The Soul Express, and "I Can't Take No More" by Willie Cooper & The Webs.

VariousExotic Blues & Rhythm Vols 5 & 6 – Sadaba/Gibble Gobble ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Ultra-hip work from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – the kind of weird, wild, and unusual singles you'd be likely to find way down on the list of singles available on a jukebox – often with hand-written title cards, because the music was so obscure! The tunes here are all at a midtempo groove – the kind of vamping, bad-stepping work that's been rediscovered by the funk collecting underground in recent years – tunes that were originally issued on 45s and 78s, mostly on small labels – in modes that are heavy on R&B, soul, and blues elements. Titles include "Gibble Gobble" by Willie Wright, "Gonna Have Myself A Ball" by Lance Roberts, "Apache War Dance" by Earl Hooker, "Tiny Tim" by Chuck Daniels, "Cool Cool Cool" by The Clare Sisters, "Big John" by Titus Turner, "Sadaba" by Johnny Williams, "Cleo" by The Mark Five, "Lover's Curse" by Bracey Everett, "I Want To Love You" by Kenny & Moe, "Exotic" by The Rhythm Kings, and "River In My Blood" by Steve Karmen.

VariousGiant Single – The Profile Records Rap Anthology (colored vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Profile, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99 24.98
The Profile Records label may be best-remembered as the initial home of Run DMC – but back in the day, the company was one of the top imprints on the New York scene – and one of the few who could be a bit bigtime, yet still keep the right sort of ears to the ground! The selection here certainly lives up to that legacy – as the music is filled with some overlooked treasures, mixed with a few key classics – all to serve up a perfect portrait of the hip hop underground as it was really breaking out and moving up! Titles include "Genius Rap" by Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde, "Whip Rap" by Disco Four, "Word Of Mouth" by King Kut, "A Fly Guy" by Pebblee Poo, "Fresh" by Fresh 3 MCs, "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee Vs K-Rob, "Nightmares" by Dana Dane, "Get Off My Tip" by Masterdon Committee, "Lies Lies" by Rap-O-Matic, "It's My Beat" by Sweet Tee & Jazzy Joyce, "Drag Rap" by The Showboys, "Here Comes That Beat" by Pumpkin & The Profile All-Stars, and "Sucker MCs (Krush Groove 1)" by Run-DMC.

VariousHadley Murrell Presents Funk You ... CD
HDM, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Rare funky work from producer Hadley Murrell – a man who's maybe best-remembered for his clubby tracks of the late 70s, but who does a surprisingly great job here with the harder side of the spectrum too! The package is a bit short on dates and details – the notes are mostly just Hadley telling his ideas about music – but the sounds are wonderful, and really open up our ears to Murrell's skills in the studio – especially on some of the cuts that have a razor-sharp funky 45 sound! The best numbers here seem to draw a direct inspiration from James Brown – but in the best possible way – and others have a more upbeat approach to funk, but still with a nice edte. Titles include "The Man" by Jesse & Anita, "Mr Funky" by Freddi Henchi & The Soulsetters, "Shakedown" by Black Ice, "Funky To The Bone" by Freddi Henchi & The Soulsetters, "Music Freak" by Penguin Feet & The Teardrop Kid, "That's Love Calling" by Carl Weathers, "Bump Me" by Smoked Sugar, "Everybody Get Ugly" by Penguin Feet & The Teardrop Kid, "Abuse Me" by Liquid Blue, "Who's Slipping Who Out The Back Door" by Eddie Horan, "You Got The Makings Of A Real Freak" by Penguin Feet & The Teardrop Kid, and "I Judge The Funk" by Black Ice.

Outta Sight (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
There's a huge amount of early Philly soul here – lots of tracks from the classic years of the Cameo/Parkway label, plus a few other choice bits too – all wrapped up in a Northern Soul collection that owes almost nothing to the style of Detroit! The package features great tracks by obscure artists, and obscure tracks by bigger singers – brought together with the kind of top-shelf track selection that makes us love releases on the Outta Sight label so much. There's plenty here that goes way past the obvious – and titles include "Heartaches Away My Boy" by Christine Cooper, "Night Owl" by Bobby Paris, "Country Girl" by Vickie Baines, "Envy" by The Orlons, "You Didn't Say A Word" by Yvonne Baker, "Girl Don't Make Me Wait" by Bunny Sigler, "Packing Up" by Damon Fox, "Deep Dark Secret" by Dee Dee Sharp, "My Heart Your Heart" by Janie Grant, "Picture Me Gone" by Evie Sands, "Comin Home Baby" by Dee Dee Sharp, and "It's Rough Out There" by Jerry Jackson.

VariousHome Schooled – The ABCs Of Kid Soul ... LP
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 25.99
Jackson 5, move over – because the folks at Numero Records have uncovered a whole host of rare kid soul acts from the 70s – most of them a fair bit funkier than their Motown contemporaries! The tracks here all clearly follow the lead started by Michael and his brothers at the end of the 60s – but the music is way more than just a simple copycat of Jackson modes – as each of these artists have a really individual approach, and a heck of a lot of personality in their music – despite their youthful years. In true Numero fashion, most of the cuts here are from tiny little labels – issued only as singles back in the day, but produced with a great deal of enthusiasm for the music – and a confident, competent sound that's quite striking, given the age of the performers. The package comes with complete notes on the music – opening up a whole world of lesser-known kid soul acts – and titles include the amazing "Trust Your Child" by Patrizia & Jimmy, plus "I'm Not Ready For Love" by Promise, "One Is Enough For One" by Jack & the Mods, "Now That School Is Through" by Cindy & The Playmates, "Jersey Slide (part 1)" by 3 Stars, "You Are My Dream" by 3 Simmons, "Can't Let You Break My Heart" by Quantrells, "If You're Looking For Love" by Triads, "Yellow Ribbons" by Atons, "Sweet Pea" by Altyrone Deno Brown, "Time After Time" by Step By Step, "Time" by Otis The 3rd, and "Little Girl" by Michael Washington.

VariousIn The Beginning There Was Rhythm – The Rise Of Dance Music After Punk ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
The resurgence of one of the most groundbreaking periods in recent groove history – the almost-forgotten post-punk years in England, a time of incredible musical convergence! In the heady days of the early 80s – a time when much music was being lost under a gloss of big hair, tinny keyboards, and wispy vocals – a small underground of British musicians were bringing together bits of funk, punk, disco, reggae, and 70s electronica – crafting dark and funky little tunes the likes of which we've barely heard since! A number of these groups went onto do much larger (and weaker) recordings – but this package brilliantly documents the edgy brilliance at the beginning of the post punk years: a nihilistic horizon on the other end of punk – no longer angry, caustic, and shouting, on one hand with the wind knocked out of its apparent sails, on the other, slowly fomenting in secret places, coming up with music far more powerful than punk ever was. And for some strange reason, much of it was pretty darn funky – thanks to a heavy use of simple electric bass, scattershot (sometimes primitive) drum parts, and nice electronic touches, almost in an inverse to American electro. The music more than speaks for itself – and the set's as classic a batch of tunes from the time as we'd ever heard. Titles include "Shack Up" and "Knife Slits Water" by A Certain Ratio, "In The Beginning There Was Rhythm" by The Slits, "20 Jazz Funk Greats" by Throbbing Gristle, "Vegas El Bandito" and "Coup" by 23 Skidoo, "She Is Beyond Good & Evil" by The Pop Group, "Being Boiled" by The Human League, "To Hell With Poverty" by Gang Of Four, and "24 Track Loop" by This Heat.

VariousJay Strongman Presents Popcorn Heartbreak ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 27.99
Great grooves in the classic popcorn soul mode – a special blend of R&B, jazz vocals, early soul, and outright pop – served up on tracks that have a really wonderful groove at the bottom! The popcorn sound is a midtempo stepping one – not as upbeat as Northern Soul, and often with a nice sort of slink in the groove, which lets in jazzier flourishes on the instrumentation, and some occasional Latin touches as well! DJ Jay Strongman's been spinning the music for years – and he's come up with a great selection of tracks that definitely fit the mode – a few familiar numbers, and lots more rare ones – titles that include "So What" by Ray Rush, "The Big Change" by Anna King, "Heartbreak Society" by The Radiants, "River Love" by Hillard Street, "That's Why I Cry" by Varetta Dillard, "I'll Be There" by Damita Jo, "Dreams Never Hurt Nobody" by Jesse James, "A Tear" by Patsie Slater, "Tell Him" by The Gainors, "I Should Have Loved You" by The Sierras, "How Much Land" by Frank Minion, "In The Palm Of Your Hand" by Dolly Lyon, "Now I Lay Me Down To Weep" by Simone Dina, and "You Got Me Crazy" by Lew Conetta.

Ace (UK), 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from 1967 – a year in which mainstream music saw plenty of heady changes – as you might guess from the title! The set's a wonderful follow-up to the 1966 set by Jon Savage – and like that one, it features a superb selection of tracks from this important year – served up in all the different strands and styles that were popping into place – soul, early funk, psych, hard rock, and lots more – in a blistering array of songs that steps beautifully between well-known classics and underground gems! The feel of the set is way different than the usual oldies package with a date on the front – as Jon Savage dedicated the whole thing to the groundbreaking mix of music he enjoyed from pirate radio at the time – and included his own fantastic writing in the notes to help explain what makes the music so great. Titles include "You Keep Running Away" by The Four Tops, "Lazy Life" by William E, "At The Third Stroke" by The Picadilly Line, "Try It" by The Attack, "I'm A Man" by Spencer Davis Group, "Western Union" by The Searchers, "So You Say You Lost Your Baby" by Gene Clark, "Feelin Reelin Squeelin" by Soft Machine, "So Sharp" by Dyke & The Blazers, "Mr Soul" by Buffalo Springfield, "Vacuum Cleaner" by Tintern Abbey, "Garden Of My Mind" by The Mickey Finn, "Love Power" by The Sandpebbles, "Look At Me I'm You" by The Blossom Toes, and "Psyche Rock" by Les Yper Sound. 48 tracks in all!

Jazzaggression/Afro 7 (Estonia), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
A totally smoking set of tracks from the Somali scene of the 70s – and maybe the coolest East African music we've heard from the time! The material here is all from a small label that was spun off an appliance store – and the imprint had a really great ear for recording these acts in ways that bring out all their most unusual elements, while still holding onto the strong groove at the bottom! Half the set features work by the Sharero Band – a really great group who have a wicked way with an organ line, so that the instrument has all these sharp edges and odd tunings – which create a cool exotic vibe over the more forward-moving grooves – on titles that include "Sharero", "Caashooy", and "Yaan Cuskanaa". The set features more music from Magool – a group with instrumentation that's maybe more Eastern, in ways that reflect the Islamic culture in Mogadishu, but the tracks also have a strongly percussive vibe too – which makes for a nice match alongside the vocals, on titles "Waly Sita" and "Shimbir Yohou". Last up is a track from guitarist Ahmed Rabsha and Hibbo Nuura – great vocal interplay with a lively vibe, on the striking "Bohol You". CD featuers two bonus tracks – one more from Sharero Band and Magool! (Global Grooves, Funky Compilations) CD

VariousMasterpieces Of Modern Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
Ultra-hip soul from the 70s – a brilliant collection of underground tunes that represents some of the best of the decade's indie scene! The title says "modern", but the groove here is also pretty darn deep – as many of the tracks on the set have nice touches of southern soul, despite the smoother 70s production overall. Vocals are extremely heartfelt, and most tracks are in a mellow or midtempo pace – making for a really wonderful batch of tunes that moves away from the more uptempo and clubby sounds you might hear on other modern soul compilations. This special LP pressing brings together tracks from the CD series – a number of which were never issued on vinyl, even back in the day – and two unreleased tracks appear here for the first time ever! Titles include "Gotta Be Loved (part 2)" by Herman Davis, "Never Felt This Way Before" by The New Experience, "Go Away" by The Hestitations, "Momma Had A Baby" by Street People, "Do You Really Love Me" by Darondo, "I Don't Play Games" by Nightchill, "Just A Little Ugly" by Gail Anderson, "It's The Same Old Story" by Act 1, "Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right" by The Mayberry Movement, "Shake Off That Dream" by Eddie Billups & The CCCs, and "If There Were No You" by The Natural Resources.

An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. 3CD set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney, "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.
