Various122 BPM – The Birth Of House Music – Mitchbal Records & Chicago Connection Records ... CD
Still Music, 1980s. Used 3 CD's ... $19.99
A crucial look at the Chicago scene in the 1980s – and the first collection to really get at the roots of that city's legendary house music scene! Although later labels – like Trax or DJ International – became known as global forces for dance music in the 80s, the big wave of new sounds from the Windy City was really started by a much smaller company – the tiny Mitchbal label, and related Chicago Connection Records! This wonderful package really does a great job of bringing the Mitchbal contribution to light – with lavish notes, almost Numero-style, that fully detail the way the label mixed unique strands on the scene – British imports, new wave rhythms, and a younger generation of soul musicians still looking for an outlet in the post-disco years. These forces, and more, all came together to make the mighty sound of Mitchbal – featured here in a collection of the label's rare singles, some unreleased tracks, and other essential bits. 3CD package features a full bonus mix CD, plus a whopping 24 tracks that include "Fantasy (inst)" by Z Factor, "Shake Your Body" by Jeanette Thomas, "When I Hear The Music" by Mitchbal & The Housemasters, "The House Is On Fire" by Dezz & Grant, "Do Dat Stuff (dance mix)" by Mitchbal & Larry Williams, "I Am Music (inst)" by Libra Libra, "That's The Beat" by Risque Rhythm Team, "Fast Cars" by Z Factor, "More Than Just A Dance (backyard mix)" by Rique Rhythm Team, "I Got Broke Breakdancing (inst)" by MC Ghee, and "I Can't Forget" by Mr Lee.

✨✧ VariousMama's Got A Bag Of Her Own – 25 Songs From The Original Sassy Stateside Soul Sisters ... CD
Stateside (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of female soul tracks we've ever seen – a package that goes way past the obvious to bring together a range of great bits from the early 60s through the early 70s! Half the work here is quite obscure, but even the better-known tracks are still ones that don't show up that often – and together the tunes resonate with a depth and quality that easily blows away other sets of this nature – a great sound that goes way past easy hits and common cliches to showcase a really full range of female soul! Tons of great tracks – with titles that include "I'm My Own Doctor" by Debbie Dovale, "Don't Stop The Wedding" by Ann Cole, "Groovin At The Go Go" by The Four Larks, "Let Me Down Easy" by Betty Lavette, "Mama's Got A Bag Of Her Own" by Anna King, "One Of Those Good For Crying Over You Days" by Clydie King, "You're No Good" by Dee Dee Warwick, "You Got Em Beat" by Soul Sisters, "Hard To Handle" by Patti Drew, "Beatmaker" by Doris, "Expressway To Your Heart" by Margo Thunder, "There's So Much Love All Around Me" by Three Degrees, "Feel Like Makin Love" by Marlena Shaw, "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know" by Tina Britt, "I'm Just Not Ready For Love" by The Ikettes, and "Just Not Ready" by The Exciters.
