VariousChange Is Gonna Come – The Voice Of Black America 1963 to 1973 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A brilliant testament to the righteous power of soul music in the civil rights era – and key proof that even a subtle message could do a lot back in the day! The package presents the work in roughly chronological order – starting from a time when politics had to be peddled softly, and moving towards a time when things could be a bit more explicit – showing a great evolution of themes of pride and power, offered up in tunes both familiar and obscure. The collection is way more than a "hip hits of the 60s" sort of set – and acts almost as a mini-documentary of the contributions of soul music to civil rights – supported by a great set of notes and photos in the booklet. We're especially happy to see the track "Have You Ever Seen The Blues" by Yaphet Kotto – alongside 22 more titles that include "Blues For Mr Charlie" by Lou Gosset & Joe Lee Wilson, "The Ghetto" by Homer Banks, "We're A Winner" by The Impressions, "When Will We Be Paid" by The Staple Singers, "Oh Lord Why Lord" by Parliament, "Message From A Black Man" by The Spinners, "Run Charlie Run" by The Temptations, "Cryin In The Streets (parts 1 & 2)" by George Perkins & The Silver Stars, "Free At Last" by Jackie Day, "Someday We'll All Be Free" by Donny Hathaway, and "The Prayer" by Ray Scott.

✨✧ VariousMotown Remixed Vol 3 EP – Chill ... LP
Motown/Universal, 2005. Sealed ... $9.99
"Motown" and "chill" aren't two words we'd necessarily use in the same sentence (or the same decade for that matter!) – but the remixes on this set manage to bring the two together nicely, and take an older Motown groove into the realm of downtempo and electronics! The EP features 3 longer tracks from the Motown Remix CD – and titles include "Papa Was A Rollin Stone (DJ Jazzy Jeff & Pete Kuzma soulful mix)" by The Temptations, "Let's Get It On (Da Producers MPG groove mix)" by Marvin Gaye, and "Quiet Storm (Groove Boutique chill jazz mix)" by Smokey Robinson, which features bonus vibes by Roy Ayers!

✨✧ VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia 4 Ever ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A totally great entry in one of our favorite-ever collections of Philly Soul – a series that goes way past the obvious, to uncover the kind of underground gems that made the Philadelphia scene interesting – even when they were turning out hits! Make no mistake, these aren't clunky cuts from half-baked labels – but instead represent the massive amount of talent on the surface in the city – the "extra" work that was being cut in all the studios alongside the hits – sometimes only issued on 45s, sometimes buried on albums alongside the bigger tracks – but really wonderful material overall. Many of these cuts feature the same arrangers, producers, and session musicians as some of the bigger Philly tracks of the time – but most are also more obscure, too – and show the deepening sophistication of the city's style as the 70s moved on. Titles include "How Have You Been" by Earl Blood Hollins, "Love You Just As Long As I Can (Tom Moulton 12" mix) by Free Spirit, "I'm Ready To Give Up My Love" by Final Touch, "Day After Day" by The Reflections, "All You Ever Wanted To Know About Love" by The Tymes, "Keep In Touch" by Choice Four, "Life Is What You Make It" by Tapestry, "Ready Willing & Able" by The Temptations, "No Danger Ahead" by Ben E King, "Don't Close The Book" by The Futures, "Keeping Up With The Joneses" by Billy Proctor & Love System, "All I Need" by Anacostia, "Fancy Meeting You Here Baby" by Lennie Welch, and "I Was A Lonely Man" by The Philly Devotions.
