VariousChange Is Gonna Come – The Voice Of Black America 1963 to 1973 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 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.

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.

✨✧ VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 5 – 1965 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1965. Used 6CD ... Out Of Stock
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
(Limited edition. Still sealed!)
