VariousInvictus Soul Box Set (3CD set) ... CD
Invictus/Sanctuary (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 3CDS ... $24.99
A mighty mighty dip into the legendary Invictus Records catalog – the Detroit soul powerhouse headed up by the Holland-Dozier-Holland team after they departed from Motown! The Invictus groove is a much heavier one than Motown – a righteous approach to soul that uses plenty of bass, plenty of funk, and lots of deeper production styles – all at a level that was perfect for the growing sophistication in Detroit as the 70s loomed large. Like Motown, the label had a number of key acts that used similar studio backing – an approach that made for very unified feel on most numbers, and a cross-label sound that comes through perfectly in this set – no matter what the artist on the record! 3CD set features a total of 68 numbers in all – all packaged into one nicely-priced box, with loads of rare singles from some of the related labels in the Invictus family. Titles include "Bar B Q Ribs" by Raynel Wynglas, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "I Got It" by New York Port Authority, "Cheba" by The 8th Day, "Crumbs Off The Table" by Glass House, "Band Of Gold" by Freda Payne, "VIP" by Scherrie Payne, "Everything Good Is Bad" by 100 Proof Aged In Soul, "Something New About You" by The Silent Majority, "Your Love Controls Me" by The Jones Girls, "The Music Box" by New Play with Ruth Copeland, "Patches" by Chairmen Of The Board, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "That's Love" by The Hi-Lites, "Can't Get Enough Of You" by Tyrone Edwards, "Wanting You" by Earl English, "Rip Off" by Laura Lee, "I'm Not My Brothers Keeper" by Flaming Ember, "New Breed Kinda Woman" by Holland Dozier Holland, "Why Can't We Be Lovers" by Lamont Dozier, "Mama's Little Baby" by Brotherly Love, "Unhooked Generation" by Freda Payne, "Bump Your Lady (parts 1 & 2)" by Natural High, "Sitting On A Time Bomb" by Lee Charles, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, and "Time Gonna Change Everything" by Lucifer.

✨✧ VariousFrankie Crocker – Do It Frankie, Do It To It ... CD
Sanctuary (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible tribute to legendary New York radio DJ Frankie Crocker – served up with some of the best groovers from his landmark show in the 70s! The package stands well enough as a funky soul compilation on its own – and is a brilliant document of the New York sound a it moved into the disco years, especially in the way that groups were tightening things up a bit more than before, yet still keeping it real. As the set moves on, it showcases a few more club classics – of the sort that Crocker helped to break big near the end of the decade – but even these are far deeper than the kind of hits you might expect from a package like this. The set features notes on Frankie's career, and the individual tracks – and the CD features a few snippets of old radio ads for Crocker's show, plus 24 titles that include "She's For Real" by The Dynamics, "Forget That Girl" by Jeanne Napoli, "Party Music" by Pat Lundi, "Feel The Need In Me" by Genya Ravan, "Soul On Your Side" by Rhythm Maker, "3 Minutes To Hey Girl" by George Kerr, "Pillow Talk" by Bunny Sigler, "Make It With You" by The Whispers, "Casanova" by Coffee, "You're My One Weakness Girl" by Street People, "Tell Him For Me" by Louis Williams, "Brother On The Run" by Adam Wade & Johnny Pate, "Do What You Feel" by The Rimshots, "Going To See My Baby" by Fatback Band, "Looking For A Brand New Game" by Eight Minutes, "Let Your Heart Be The Judge" by Gods Gift To Women, and Frankie Crocker's own funky 45, "Ton Of Dynamite"!

✨✧ VariousSky High! – Mizell Brothers Works Mixed By Muro ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1970s/1990s/2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest sets we've ever heard from Blue Note – a mix of classic 70s work by The Mizell Brothers, plus 90s hip hop tracks – all handled by DJ Muro with a really laidback, open-ended groove! Muro really gets the genius of the Mizells during these years, and hardly tries to tamper with their work – instead letting the tunes flow out with that spacious, righteous style that Larry and Fonce used to create some of the hippest jazz funk ever – true treasures that made Blue Note in the 70s a really special place! Alongside famous cuts on the label, Muro's also thrown in a few Mizell-produced soul tracks for Capitol too – plus choice hip hop cuts that famously sample the originals, and keep the jazzy vibe strongly intact. The mix features 25 tracks in all – including "Please Set Me At Ease" and "Blacks & Blues" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Looking At The Front Door" by Main Source, "Peace Of Mind" and "Reason To Survive" by Rance Allen, "Footprints" and "Butter" by Tribe Called Quest, "Do It Good" and "World Spin" by Taste Of Honey, "Lansana's Priestess" and "Wind Parade" by Donald Byrd, "Love Ballad" and "Music Is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz, "Stepping Into Tomorrow" by Madlib, "You & The Music" by Donald Byrd, "Buck Em Down" by Black Moon, "Blowing Down" by Digable Planets, and "Jasper Country Man" by Bobbi Humphrey.
