VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia 4 Ever ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

✨✧ VariousEasy Christmas Now – Groovy Carols For A Cozy Winter ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully groovy set of Christmas tracks – one done in a style very similar to the Get Easy Snow compilations – as you might guess from the title! The selection here is great – with a few perennial favorites, a few rare gems, and a great middle stretch of wonderful bits from some of the grooviest artists of the 60s and 70s – a great antidote to some of the too-played holiday music you might hear during the 12th month of the year! Titles include "Santa Claus Is Definitely Hear To Stay" by James Brown, "Close Your Mouth It's Christmas" by Free Design, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by Jimmy McGriff, "Snow" by Claudine Longet, "Black Christmas" by The Emotions, "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" by The Temptations, "Christmas Gift" by Margie Joseph, "Winter Warm" by Bob Crewe Generation, "Snow Flakes" by The Ventures, "Winter Symphony" by The Beach Boys, "This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway, "Children Go Where I Send Thee" by Kenny Burrell, "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" by Ray Anthony & His Bookends, "Swinging Christmas" by Helmut Zacharias, and "Jingo Jango" by Bert Kaempfert.
