VariousComplete Motown Singles 12A – 1972 (limited edition 5CD set – with bonus 45) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1972. Used 5 CDs & 45 ... $74.99
The sprawling soul sounds of Motown, circa '72 – with all the amazing singles from January to July of that huge and historic year – collected here in the first of a 2 box set grand finale for the Complete Motown Singles series! Creatively, the first half of '72 was an incredible period. Veterans like Stevie Wonder, The Temptations and The Four Tops sound freshly inspired, Marvin Gaye is hitting his peak, Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5 are in full stride, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas and The Supremes are still cutting gorgeous singles. In other words, there's still a whole lot of distinctively Motown magic happening! But '72 also finds the label branching out into funk, funk rock and both sunnier and grittier material by a variety artists – from Undisputed Truth and Sisters Love, to Frankie Valli and Rare Earth. The label would soon make the move to the west coast, so it's truly the end of an era – therefore as apt of a point as possible for Hip-O Select to begin closing up their beautiful series. Vol 12A has 113 tracks on 5CDs – encased in a hardcover, 130-page full color book with essays and notes on each track – including songs by all the above, plus Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, David Ruffin, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, The Commodores, Syreeta, Edwin Starr, Thelma Houston, The Devastating Affair, Bobby Darin, Blinky, Posse, The Marvelettes, Blue Scepter, GC Cameron, The Originals, Eddie Kendricks, Gladys Knght & The Pips and more! Also includes a bonus 45 by The Blackberries – "Somebody Up There" backed by "But I Love You More" – with the Mowest logo on the inner label! Love this! Can't wait for Vol 12B!

VariousComplete Motown Singles Vol 9 – 1969 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1969. Used 6CDs ... $89.99
Motown at the end of the 60s – hipper and much more righteous than anyone would have expected a few short years before! The scope of work on this 1969 volume of the Complete Motown Singles set is really amazing – not just the straighter Detroit soul of their roots, but a complex blend of styles that includes heavier funk, sweeter soul ballads, smoking instrumentals, and even a taste of the label's future to come as part of the California scene. As with other volumes, the packaging and presentation here is sublime – way more than just a standard CD collection – and instead, a book-like package that features 140 full color pages, plus 6CDs that feature over 140 songs in all – a-sides, b-sides, and even some rare alternate mixes. Artists include Stu Gardner, The Marvelettes, Monk Montgomery, Jr Walker, Stevie Wonder, Arthur Adams, The Spinners, The Jackson 5, Chuck Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Four Tops, The Rustix, Smokey Robinson, Edwin Starr, The Temptations, Shorty Long, Gladys Knight, The Originals, Jonah Jones, The Fantastic Four, Earl Van Dyke, The Honest Men, and even Soupy Sales!

VariousComplete Motown Singles Volume 10 – 1970 (limited edition 6CD set) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1970. Used 6 CDs ... $199.99
Motown leaps boldly into the 70s – building strongly off the changing grooves during the label's late 60s years, and serving up an amazing array of differently-styled singles! There's a really great blend here of some of the more familiar 60s modes and the hipper grooves to come in the new decade – a sound that's definitely maturing Motown, but still with most of the label's big talent in place, alongside some key younger acts and a few great surprises from left field! As with other volumes in this amazing series, there's a hell of a lot of music here – not just hits, but every single from the year, presented with both a and b-sides – so that you really get an idea of what the label was up to at the time. The whole thing's packaged in a hardcover book-style package, with a bonus 45 in the front cover – and it includes over 150 tracks by artists who include Hearts Of Stone, Hugh Masekela, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Allan Nichols, The Originals, Rare Earth, The Jazz Crusaders, Diana Ross, Arthur Adams, Jimmy Ruffin, Yvonne Fair, Gladys Knight, Bob & Marcia, Buzzie, Blinky, The Jackson 5, Danny Hernandez, Ivy Jo, The Fantastic Four, R Dean Taylor, Chuck Jackson, and lots more!

VariousHorse Meat Disco ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $11.99
Marvelously mixed-up work from the Horse Meat Disco team – a great way for all of us to sample the revolutionary grooves they've been laying down at their famous club night in London! The work here is hardly the conventional disco you'd find on other compilations (although maybe you already guessed that from the "horse meat" in the title) – and instead, the grooves are an odd range of funky club styles from the late 70s and early 80s – including many tracks that have a jagged, percussive edge that's a far cry from smoother disco. Don't get us wrong, though – as there's definitely some great disco touches here too – yet these are still far from the mainstream, and just slide on in to warm things up before the beats take over on the next tune. 2CD set features one disc mixed by the team, one unmixed – with titles that include "In The Evening" by Sheryl Lee Ralph, "Danger" by Gregg Diamond, "Dancing Shoes" by Plaza, "Freakman" by Empire Projecting Penny, "And I Don't Love You (Larry Levan inst)" by Smokey Robinson, "Detour (party mix)" by Karen Young, "Disco Jam" by Eddie Drennon, "Love Bite" by Richard Hewson Orchestra, "I Don't Depend On You" by Two Tons, and "It's Alright" by Gino Soccio.
