VariousPhiladelphia International – The Re-Edits ... CD
Philadelphia International/Harmless (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A great take on the sound of Philadelphia International – a double-length set of re-edits of Philly gems from years back – but all done in ways that are completely respectful to the originals! The approach here is wonderful – as warm and soulful as the Philly grooves from back in the day – but often extended and reworked slightly – the way you might have heard on a vintage 12" promo – which is even more impressive once you consider that some of these tracks never came out in that format! The choice of tracks is totally right on the money – and a great demonstration of that old school edit mode that never tried to mess with the track at all – just increase the pleasure it brought to the dancefloor – and the set features 21 very long tracks, including "Satisfaction Guaranteed (Morning Star re-edit)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Only The Strong Survive (J*Ski re-edit)" by Billy Paul, "Free Love (Victor Rosado re-edit)" by Jean Carn, "Life On Mars (DJ Mila re-edit)" by Dexter Wansel, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (The Noodleman re-work)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Nights Over Egypt (Womack & TOT re-edit) by The Jones Girls, "Strategy (Touchsoul re-edit)" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Let The Dollar Circulate (Scratch N Sniff's ext re-reub)" by Billy Paul, "Darlin Darlin Baby (Deep & Disco re-work)" by The O'Jays, and "Be For Real (Tim McAllister re-edit)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.

Gil EvansGreat Jazz Standards ... CD
World Pacific, 1959. Used ... $8.99
A fantastic lost set from Evans – one that features Mingus trumpeter Johnny Coles as the lead soloist in front of Evans-led modern groups that include players like Elvin Jones, Ray Crawford, Steve Lacy, Budd Johnson, Rod Levitt, and Chuck Wayne. Despite the "standards" in the title, most of these numbers are modern tunes from the 50s – like "Joy Spring", "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", "Django", "Straight No Chaser", and "Chant Of The Weed" – all given Evans' unique style of arrangement, tweaked up a few notches to give them a really edgey quality. Coles is clearly standing in for Miles here, but the format works well overall! CD

Johnny Guitar WatsonJohnny Guitar Watson & The Family Clone/Bow Wow ... CD
DJM/Cherry Red (UK), 1981/1994. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
Two unusual later sets from Johnny Guitar Watson – back to back on a single CD! Family Clone is a record issued with a title that was a bit of a joke – as Johnny Guitar Watson plays all instruments on the album himself, not a "family" group – but the joke stops there, as the record's every bit as great as any of Watson's classics from the time! And there's no "clone" in the grooves at all – no nod to more popular styles by other artists of the time – because Johnny keeps things unique throughout, always working that undeniable Watson charm alongside some wicked guitar and super-sly vocals! Keyboards figure in as much as guitar on the record, and there's some really great laidback numbers that almost have a Shuggie Otis-like approach to soul. Titles include "What Is Love", "Family Clone", "Forget The Joneses", "Clone Information", "Voodoo What You Do", and "Come & Dance With Me". Bow Wow is one of the last full recordings from Johnny Guitar Watson – and a surprisingly great little set that still stands strongly with some of his last funky records from the early 80s! The vibe is slightly contemporary – with some touches of 90s R&B in the production – but Watson's vocals still have that wonderful sense of charm that glides along with his sweet guitar lines – in ways that are plenty great, even amidst the changed-up rhythms. Titles include "Bob Wow", "Johnny G Is Back", "My Funk", "Time Change", "Hook Me Up", and "I Don't Think So". CD

VariousHarmony Of The Soul – Vocal Groups 1962 to 1977 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
An incredible collection based around one of our favorite styles of soul music ever – the smooth, mellow male group soul approach that flourished strongly in the late 60s and early 70s – as kind of a more mature, sophisticated take on earlier doo wop modes! Like the previous format, the approach here is very heavy on vocal interplay – but never in a mode that's too overdone, nor filled with tricks and turns – and which instead has the quartet or quintet voices coming together in these completely sublime ways – gliding, stepping, and mellow-grooving along – in an assortment of tracks that are all pretty darn rare, and which includes nine tracks that appear here for the first time ever! The sound quality is wonderful, and the notes are very detailed – and the whole thing's way better than any sort of dodgy package that group soul collectors usually have to settle for – done in the same approach as the In Perfect Harmony series on Kent. Titles include "For The Rest Of My Days" by The Pretenders, "Why Can't It Be" by The Windjammers, "Girl Girl Girl" by The Determinations, "I Destroyed Your Love (part 1)" by Special Delivery, "Send My Baby Back" by San Francisco TKOs, "Where Or When" by The Superbs, "Shady Lady" by Choice Of Colors, "Whatcha Gonna Do Baby" by The Lovers, "Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart" by The Smith Brothers, "Without A Word" by The MMs & The Peanuts, and "Crying Bitter Tears" by The Steelers.

VariousSuper Animated Breaks & SFX – Mixed By Muro ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from DJ Muro – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given how much we love his other projects! This totally wonderful set has Muro mixing it up with snippets of songs from Japanese animated work of the 60s, 70s, and 80s – very cool, very groovy cuts that bring together funky rhythms, jazzy solos, weird electronics, and plenty more – all then woven by Muro into this stunning mix of sounds that includes bits from 37 different songs! All the titles and information are in Japanese – but the feel of the set is like some of the best funk soundtrack work you love from the 70s – from American blacksploitation to the best in European cop and crime. And with Muro on the decks, the mix is perfect – done with the same sort of genius as his Fender Rhodes mixes from a few years back! CD

✨✧ VariousSources – The DJ International Records Anthology – Compiled By Bill Brewster ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A set that's very near and dear to our hearts – given that the DJ International label was a huge force here on the Chicago scene during the 80s! The label was second only to Trax Records as a proving ground for so many new ideas in house music – a crucial indie who helped give many artists their start, and managed to get their music to much wider audiences around the globe! While Trax might have been first by a few beats, DJ international stepped forward with a much more professional approach – really focusing on some key stars in the growing house scene, and even working in album formats as well as the sort of singles that seemed to crop up every week during the 80s. This 3CD package is very well done – selected and annotated by dancefloor scholar Bill Brewster – with 35 cuts that include "Move" by Farm Boy, "Like This" by Chip E, "Shadows Of Your Love (original fierce club)" by JM Silk, "The It (Hardy club mix)" by Donnie, "Turn Up The Bass" by Tyree with Kool Rock Steady, "Check Out The Hook (dangerous DJ club)" by 2 Young Brothers, "Communicate (AT&T club)" by Full House, "Let's Go Don't U Want Some More" by Fast Eddie, "Don't Wanna Go (Mike Dunn voc club)" by Sterling Void, "Work On Me (99th Street piano club)" by Frankie Hollywood Rodriguez, "Acid Thunder (fast thunder club)" by Fast Eddie, "Freedom (Factory club)" by the Children, "House Music Is My Life (deep house club rmx)" by Tyree, "The Promised Land" by Joe Smooth, "It's U" by Farley Jackmaster Funk & Ricky Dillard, "Choice Of A New Generation (deep underground club)" by Rocky Jones, and "Only The Strong Survive" by Frankie Knuckles.
