✨✧ Emperors/Soul ExoticsKarate (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philly Archives, 1967. Used ... $8.99
If this is Karate, sign us up for the next martial arts class! The album's a sock-hard batch of soul tracks from the 60s – rare Philly soul work by The Emperors, one of the heaviest soul groups on the city's scene! The group have a really great sound – with a rhythm section that bubbles over with energy, grooves slapping out with a blend of organ, guitar, bass, and drums – over which the group sing in a style that reminds us almost of a harmony version of Dyke & The Blazers. The CD features all of the vocal versions of their singles – 10 tracks that include the group's classic boogaloo number "Karate" – plus "My Baby Likes To Boogaloo", "I Can't Help Myself", "Looking For My Baby", "Mumble Shing A Ling", "Karate Boogaloo", "High Heel Sneakers", "I've Got To Have Her", and "Searching". Then, the CD explodes with even more great Philly soul from Soul Exotics – the cuts "Darlin", "Nobody Could Ever Love You", "Togtherness Brings Happiness", "Baby It's True", and "Here I Am Again". Also features "Sad Girl (parts 1 & 2)" by Emperors Soul 69! CD

✨✧ Emperors New ClothesWisdom & Lies ... LP
Acid Jazz (UK), 1995. Very Good- ... $5.99

The set features some wild instrumentation on melodica, toy keyboard, thumb piano, flute, bells, and harmonium – and guest production work by Attica Blues and UNKLE – and tracks include "Darklight", "Rollercoaster", "Tears Inside", "Four Corners", "Haunted Music", and "Welcome To Your World".

✨✧ VariousDynamite Soul Harmony Vol 1 ... CD
Dynamite (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stellar set of rare vocal group soul! This is one of our favorite-ever compilations of sweet soul harmony tunes – and it's filled with wonderful rare singles from the late 60s and early 70s, tight little gems from that period where the harmony soul format was getting even more sophisticated than before, but had not yet hit the overproduced sound of the mid 70s chart years. Titles include "When I'm With You" by The Four Thoughts, "I'll Make A Vow" by The Crescents, "Just A Few Steps Up The Aisle" by Jato Von Dell, "You're My Desire" by The Four Mints, "You're All I Live For" by The Four Vibes, "Sad Girl" by Emperors Soul 69, "It's Not The End" by The Jet Set, "Borrow Til Morning" by The Compliments, "Step Into My World" by Magic Touch, and "Girl Of The Night" by Uptites. 23 tracks in all, and although the sources seem a bit dodgy, the sound's still better than our beat up 45s, and the track listing is a collector's dream! CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players.)

✨✧ VariousLost Legends Of Surf Guitar (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A heck of a kickoff for a new series of surf guitar compilations on Sundazed – as it's one of best we've ever stocked! This is the real deal – a stellar assortment of raucous instrumental stormers that rippled through the regional scenes back in the day. It's underground surf-garage masterpieces with everything we love about the genre, but without the glossy pop cliches of the bigger budget copycats to come! Reverb-drenched guitars, rumbling rhythms, tense bits of organ, sax and more. Incredible! Includes "Loophole" by The Royal Coachmen, "Gear!" by Dave Myers And His Surftones, "The Breeze And I" by Steve And The Emperors, "The Rising Surf" by The Tandems, "Cemetery Stomp" by The Essex, "Ian Fleming Theme" by The Menn, "Exotic" by The Original Surfaris, "Banzai Washout" by The Catalinas, "Shootin' Beavers" by The Tornadoes, "Moondawg" by The Rhythm Rockers and more. 28 tracks on 2LPs – and all tracks in the original mono mixes!
