VariousJohn Morales – The M&M Mixes Vol 4 – The Ultimate Collection – NYC Classic Underground Anthems & Previously Unreleased Remixes (4CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99 34.99
John Morales has a wonderful talent for taking a funky track and making it sound even funkier – which he does beautifully here in this killer collection of old school tunes! Many of the numbers are vintage clubby soul from the late 70s and early 80s – and Morales has this great way of crystalizing all the best elements in the songs, and pulling them to the forefront – but all without ever ruining the integrity of the tracks that sounded so great in the first place! In other words, the work here isn't the imprint of some young DJ trying to overstate his presence – but a true music maestro who really knows what makes a club track great – a vibe that takes us back to the brilliant edits of the early NYC scene. All titles here are previously unreleased – and the massive 4CD set features titles that include Morales mixes of "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Barry White, "You Got Me Running" by Lenny Williams, "Mind On You" by Level 42, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman, "Lovergirl" by Teen Marie, "Standing Right Here" by Mannix, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Let The Music Play" by Barry White, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Browne, "All Night" by Katzuma, "Hi Tension" by Hi Tension, "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Eddie Kendricks, "Before I Let Go" by Frankie Beverly, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Star Love" by Three Ounces Of Love", "You Stepped Into My Life" by Melba Moore, "Life Is A Song Worth Singing" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Walk Away From Love" by David Ruffin, "Life Goes On" by The Jones Girls, "This Time Baby" by Jackie Moore, "Turn Me Up" by Keith Barrow, "Circles" by Atlantic Starr, "Joy & Pain" by Maze, "Stay" by The Controllers, "Take Me Home" by Cher, and "Can't Live Without Your Love" by Tamiko Jones.

VariousSalut Les Copains – 1966 Les Hits ... LP
Europe 1/Universal (France), 1966. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99
A very cool collection that pays tribute to an explosive postwar decade in the French music scene – a time when the overseas market was really embracing the new styles of rock and soul from America and England, but also making some wonderful music of its own! The series does a great job of mixing up modes – so that you'll hear a French tune one minute, an English one the next – with an ever-evolving sense of styles as the series move on – especially as a lot more French material tends to dominate in the latter half of the 60s! The effect is almost like tuning into Paris radio during the year in the title – and it's no surprise that the whole thing was done as a project by Europe's Radio 1, in collaboration with Universal – at a level that's way better than some of those overstuffed schlockier hits package on the market. Titles on this 1966 volume include "La Poupee Qui Fait Non" by Michel Polnareff, "Inventaire 66" by Michel Delpech, "Oh He Hein Bon" by Nino Ferrer, "Ou Va Talle" by Ronnie Bird, "De La Musique" by Eddy Mitchell, "Sha La La La Lee" by Small Faces, "Lightnin Strikes" by Lou Christie, "Cauchemar Psychomoteur" by Hugues Aufre, "L'Amour Avec Toi" by Michel Polnareff, "C'Est La Mode" by Anne Philippe, "Dis-Nous Dylan" by 5 Gentlemen, "With A Girl Like You" by The Troggs, "Noir C'Est Noir" by Johnny Hallyday, "Qui Est In Qui Est Out" by Serge Gainsbourg, "What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted" by Jimmy Ruffin, and "Les Sucettes" by France Gall.
