✨✧ Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 3 – 1965/1966 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1965/1966. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. Volume 3 is overflowing with amazing sounds from the heart of the 60s – rare 45rpm tracks by Atlantic stars, Stax artists, and a few lesser-knowns too. Titles include "Hello Stranger" by The Capitols, "Help Me (parts 1 & 2)" by Ray Sharpe, "Long Distance Love" by Ted Taylor, "Lonely Soldier" by Mike Williams, "How Can You Babysit A Man" by Ned Towns, "Keep Looking" by Solomon Bourke, "I'm Sorry" by Fred Lowrey, "Please Uncle Sam" by The Charmels, "Share What You Got" by William Bell, "Reputation" by The Four Shells, "Me & My Baby" by Mary Wells, "Got No One" by The Delcardos, "Weak Spot" by Ruby Johnson, "Good Love Bad Love" by Eddie Floyd, "Bingo" by Ned Towns, "I Had A Dream" by Johnny Taylor, "I Can't Take It" by Ray Sharpe, "You Can't Love Them All" by The Drifters, "Believe It Or Not" by Rex Garvin & The Mighty Cravers, "Patch My Heart" by The Mad Lads, "She's The One I Love" by The Delcardos, "Find Me Somebody" by Bobby Womack, "Hello Stranger" by The Capitols, "So Much Love" by Ben E King, "Help The Bear" by Ted Taylor, and "I Feel A Sin Coming On" by Solomon Burke.

Killer funk, soul, and jazz tunes from the Warner and Atlantic catalogs – including more than a few that rank with our favorite funky cuts of the era!

Label M/Atlantic, 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Flutey! A great collection of funky flute tracks from the Atlantic label – probably the one record company that did the most for getting the flute into the funky jazz mainstream, thanks to work by its giants like Herbie Mann, Hubert Laws, and Roland Kirk. Titles include "Eboness" by Yusef Lateef, "Push Push" by Herbie Mann, "Ain't No Sunshine" by Roland Kirk, "Nubian Lady" by Yusef Lateef, "Thirteenth Floor" by David Fathead Newman, "Sombrero Sam" by Charles Lloyd, "The Wiggler" by Leo Wright, "Let Her Go" by Hubert Laws, and "One Ton" by Roland Kirk.

VariousBirth Of Soul – Special Detroit Edition 1961 to 1964 ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The Detroit soul scene at the start of the 60s – music from a time before Motown was dominating the city's reputation, and a whole host of other great labels brought the motor city sound to the masses! The work here is quite a surprise if you're only thinking in terms of Northern Soul and some of the more uptempo Detroit groovers – as the work here burns on so many different levels – often with a style that reflects some of the nascent soul coming out of Chicago on labels like Chess and Vee Jay, the latter of whom is featured here amidst a range of other imprints that include Wand, Atlantic, Scepter, Time, Old Town, and Brent – all of whom released some of these early Detroit soul tracks as singles back in the day. In true Ace/Kent fashion, the set also features a few unreleased gems, plus a wonderful set of notes on the city's soul scene – alongside tracks that include "Nosey Folk" by The Del-Phis, "Answer Me" by Vivian Collins, "Can't We Get Together" by Harry Reid, "Here I Am" by Betty Lavette, "Shakin Fit" by The Pyramids, "That's No Way To Spend My Time" by The Pen Ettes, "Wedding Bells" by Melvin Davis, "You Lied" by Marva Josie, "Think A Little Sugar" by Barbara Lewis, "Just One More Time" by JJ Barnes, "My Letter" by Priscilla Page, "I Know How It Feels" by Laura Johnson, "I'm A Lonely Guy" by Timmy Shaw & The Sternphones, "Come Back To Me" by La Wanda William, "I Cried For My Last Time" by The Sonnettes, and "Tears Running & Falling From My Eyes" by James Lately.

VariousDisco Connection – Authentic Classic Disco 1976-1981 ... CD
WEA (UK), Late 70s. Used ... $9.99
Rare disco from Warner and Atlantic – a really great set of tunes that steps past the average disco compilation! Both Warner and Atlantic were some of the better labels on the disco scene in the 70s – as their years in soul music gave them an understanding for the stronger tunes for the dancefloor scene, and allowed them to cut tracks that still hold up extremely well today. A few of the acts on the set are more famous artists, represented by some of their lesser-remembered numbers – but the bulk of the compilation features obscure work that was only briefly pressed on 12" single, and which has only been the province of disco collectors over the years. Titles include "You + Me = Love" by Undisputed Truth, "Weekend" by Phreek, "Paradise" by Change, "Lipstick" by Michel Polnareff, "Tonight's The Night" by Kleer, "Smack Dab In The Middle (Larry Levan rmx)" by Janice McLain, "#1 Dee Jay" by Goody Goody, "Whistle Bump" by Deodato, "When You Wake Up Tomorrow" by Candi Staton, "Wear It Out" by Stargard, and "I'll Tell You" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 88.

VariousDJ Qbico Plays Cameroon Funk, Soul, Makossa, & Bikutsi 45s (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
EP Sound (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $29.99
A feast of rare funky 45s – but with a style that's very different than American work in that format – as these cuts all come from the other side of the Atlantic, and have a wonderfully intense approach to the groove! The title only partly sums up the sound, as there's plenty going on here that will keep your ears to the speakers – as styles move from Afro Latin, to highlife, makossa numbers, and even some rootsier styles too – but all power-packed in the space of a funky 45, which makes for a really tight sound overall. Titles include "Ngan Ebabe A Dug Yol" by Francois Essah, "Favarsi" by Sam Fanthomas Et Les Tigres Nairo, "Etang Ntomba" by Paul Zanga, "Mayi Ba Ya" by Johnny Black & Les Jokers, "Eusane Asa Ndango" by Francois Esseh, "Bola Roland" by Orchestre Federal Band D'Esse, and "Dje Ma A Bangi Na Mba" by Mouelle Guillaume Et L'Orchestre Orfecam Jazz.

Factory/Warner, Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 8LP ... $143.99 149.99
A massive package of work from the legendary Factory Records label – that important Manchester home to Joy Division, New Order, and a host of other important UK groups in the post-punk years – a company that got plenty of our pocket change when we were young! Factory was always a cut above the rest – a company that let its artists be freely creative and always adventurous – as they recorded music that went on to have a huge impact on the shape and sound of modern music on both sides of the Atlantic, with a legacy that lasted long after the label closed its doors in the early 90s. This huge 8LP set brings together lots of magic moments from Factory – not just hits, but some great underground gems – titles that include "Deaf" by Crispy Ambulance, "Watching The Hydroplanes" by Tunnelvision, "Time Goes By So Slow" by The Distractions, "Digital" by Joy Division, "Brighter" by Railway Children, "Tasty Fish" by The Other Two, "Kinky Afro" by Happy Mondays, "Compressor" by Biting Tongues, "All At Once" by Stockholm Monsters, "Trickery" by Kalima, "Yashar (John Robie mix)" by Cabaret Voltaire, "Talk About The Past" by The Wake, "Cool As Ice" by 52nd Street, "Taste What's Rhythm" by Swamp Children, "Art On 45" by Royal Family & The Poor, "Knife Slits Water (LP version)" by A Certain Ratio, "Temptation" by New Order, "Messidor" by Durutti Column, "Love Tempo" by Quando Quango, "It's Hard To Be An Egg" by John Dowie, "Dirty Disco" by Section 25, "Nightshift" by The Names, "English Black Boys" by X O Dus, "Shack Up" by A Certain Ratio, "Eletricity (Factory version)" by OMD, and "Dolphin's Spurt" by Minny Pops.

VariousFree Soul – The Treasure Of Malaco ... CD
Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
A totally wonderful collection of work from Malaco Records – an imprint that's best known for its southern soul, blues, and gospel recordings – but one that's also got a fair bit of modern soul in its catalog as well! In fact, Malaco was really instrumental in helping move forward the torch of southern soul at a time when other bigger labels like Stax, TK, and Atlantic were really losing steam – and the cuts here are the cream of the crop from a time when Malaco was turning out some amazing sounds that rival the best modern soul from scenes in Chicago, New York, or Philly! If you only know the deep soul side of Malaco, you'll really be stunned here – and the set does a great job of pulling out some lesser-known recordings from the label, in the best Free Soul tradition. Over 80 minutes of music – with tracks that include "I Can't Do Enough For You Baby" by Tommy Tate, "Groovin" by Power, "I Need Your Love" by Patterson Twins, "Girl Overboard" by Dorothy Moore, "Get Up & Dance" by Freedom, "You Used To Be Mine" by Mosley & Johnson, "Make It With You" by Ruby Wilson, "I'm For Real" by King Floyd, "Give Me Your Love" by GC Cameron, "When Can We Do This Again" by ZZ Hill, "Let Your Love Rain Down On Me" by Jewel Bass, and "Pillow Talk" by Fern Kinney.

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Just Sold Out!
John Morales has a wonderful talent for taking a funky track and making it sound even funkier – which he does beautifully here in this killer collection of old school tunes! Many of the numbers are vintage clubby soul from the late 70s and early 80s – and Morales has this great way of crystalizing all the best elements in the songs, and pulling them to the forefront – but all without ever ruining the integrity of the tracks that sounded so great in the first place! In other words, the work here isn't the imprint of some young DJ trying to overstate his presence – but a true music maestro who really knows what makes a club track great – a vibe that takes us back to the brilliant edits of the early NYC scene. All titles here are previously unreleased – and the massive 4CD set features titles that include Morales mixes of "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Barry White, "You Got Me Running" by Lenny Williams, "Mind On You" by Level 42, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman, "Lovergirl" by Teen Marie, "Standing Right Here" by Mannix, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Let The Music Play" by Barry White, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Browne, "All Night" by Katzuma, "Hi Tension" by Hi Tension, "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Eddie Kendricks, "Before I Let Go" by Frankie Beverly, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Star Love" by Three Ounces Of Love", "You Stepped Into My Life" by Melba Moore, "Life Is A Song Worth Singing" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Walk Away From Love" by David Ruffin, "Life Goes On" by The Jones Girls, "This Time Baby" by Jackie Moore, "Turn Me Up" by Keith Barrow, "Circles" by Atlantic Starr, "Joy & Pain" by Maze, "Stay" by The Controllers, "Take Me Home" by Cher, and "Can't Live Without Your Love" by Tamiko Jones.

VariousNorthern Soul Survivors ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
A big collection of underground soul from the American scene of the late 60s – all brought together to show the sorts of grooves that kept on spinning strong all through the 70s, as part of the legendary All-Nighters scene at the UK's Wigan Casino! That bit of history aside, the music is more than great enough on its own – especially if you dig upbeat soul of the less-familiar variety – tracks that are rare, but put together with the same sort of top-shelf quality as the best of Motown or Atlantic Records at the time! Titles include "I Was Born To Love You" by Herbert Hunter, "Night Owl" by Bobby Paris, "What" by Judy Street, "I'm Comin Home In The Mornin" by Lou Pride, "Tear Stained Face" by Don Varner, "She'll Come Running Back" by Mel Britt, "Quick Change Artist" by The Soul Twins, "I Don't Like To Lose" by The Group featuring Cecil Washington, "If It's All The Same To You Babe" by Luther Ingram, "All Of My Life" by Detroit Soul, "Out Of My Mind" by Rain with Charity Brown, "It Hurts Me" by The Majestics, "Backfield In Motion" by Mel & Tim, and "Sidras Theme" by Ronnie & Robyn.
