✨✧ 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.

VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 5 – 1965 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1965. Used 6CD ... $99.99
More great soul music than we ever hoped to find in a single place – and a massive 6CD collection that looks at the key year of 1965 at Motown Records! The package is every bit as wonderful and thorough as the others in this series – with a whopping 166 songs collected in a lavish, full-color book that features nearly 150 pages of notes, photos, and wonderful images from the 60s! And as with other sets, the ultra-cool package even features a replica 45 stuck inside the front cover – a rare vinyl treasure that's almost as great as the CDs. But over and above the packaging, the music's the real thing to rave about here – as 1965 has Motown growing into even new levels of maturity and quality – as demonstrated by the work here by artists who include Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Chris Clark, Frank Wilson, The Elgins, The Miracles, Earl Van Dyke, The Marvelettes, Barbara McNair, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Jimmy Ruffin, The Dalton Boys, The Four Tops, Brenda Holloway, Little Lisa, Richard Anthony, The Lewis Sisters, Danny Day, The Contours, The Vows, The Hit Pack, Kim Weston, The Freeman Brothers, JR Walker, and many others! All singles offered up with both a and b-sides! (Soul, Funky Compilations) CD

✨✧ VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 6 – 1966 (limited edition 5CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1966. Used 5CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pivotal year in the triumphant run of Motown at its most classic and impervious – and the epic 6th volume in the amazing Complete Motown Singles series – featuring all of the important singles from 1966! '66 was a vital year for the label – the Supremes reign of chart dominance continued, the Temptations, Isleys, Marvin and Stevie were killin' it all over the country – and artists such as Tammi Terrell, Earl Van Dyke, the Mynah Birds & others were dropping great singles that were originally lost in the shuffle. Amazingly, you get all of it here – lovingly packaged with a thick, full color, 100+ page book of essays, studio notes, wonderful photos and more – and topped out with a replica 45 of "Reach Out I'll Be There" b/w "Until You Love Someone" by the Four Tops! The 5CDs feature all of the incredible '66 singles by so many of the greatest soul stars ever – plus a handful of amazing obscurities – the work of Martha & The Vandellas, Brenda Holloway, The Isley Brothers, Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Kim Weston, The Monitors, Marv Johnson, Billy Eckstine, Connie Haines, Frances Nero, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Shorty Long, The Spinners, Stevie Wonder, The Marvelettes, Tammi Terrell, Chris Clark, The Mynah Birds, The Contours, The Miracles, Jimmy Ruffin, Rick, Robin & Him, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The LaSalles, The Velvelettes, The Elgins, Earl Van Dyke & The Motown Brass and more!

✨✧ VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia 4 Ever ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousMotown Remixed Vol 3 EP – Chill ... LP
Motown/Universal, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
"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!
