MetrosSweetest One ... CD
RCA/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $7.99 12.99
One of the greatest Northern Soul albums ever – completely great all the way through, and filled with songs that have been burning up dancefloors for years! The vocals are incredible – soaring harmonies that hold together perfectly, even when the grooves are hard and heavy – and the instrumentation is great too – handled by the Pied Piper team, who were kind of a Motown offshoot that featured Jack Ashford on vibes and percussion, Dave Hamilton and Ray Monette on guitar, and Joe Hunter on piano. Hunter and Ashford handled the arrangements – with a pitch-perfect sound that's completely sublime – sweet and grooving at the same time, and put together with the same kind of care you'd find at Motown – but with all the harder-edge qualities that always made indie work from Detroit so great. Every cut is a winner, and the set is the only full album ever done by the group – with cuts that include "Egyptian Love", "Till The End Of Time", "Since I Found My Baby", "Sweetest One", "Unlucky Sun", "I'll Never Forget You", "Do The Pied Piper", and "I'm With You All The Way". Great reissue – fully remastered from the original tapes – with new liner notes too! CD
(On the Dusty Groove label.)

✨✧ VariousNorthern Soul Floorfillers (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Demon (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The call 'em floorfillers for a reason – as the tracks are so great, so groovy, you can't help running out to the dancefloor! This collection's a brilliant batch of the kind of cuts that first earned the term on the UK scene back in the day – obscure American soul cuts from the 60s, which got heavy spins at the important underground British clubs that really helped give soul music a wider global audience! These tracks go way past familiar Motown numbers and oldies – and titles include "Right Track" by Billy Butler, "Out On The Floor" by Dobie Gray, "Love Makes A Woman" by Barbara Acklin, "I Can't Help Lovin You" by Paul Anka, "Since I Found My Baby" by The Metros, "Love On a Mountain Top" by Robert Knight, "Soul Time" by Shirley Ellis, "Hold On To My Baby" by The Cavaliers, "He's Coming Home" by Beverly Ann, "Trying To Find My Woman" by Lou Courtney, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "The Snake" by Al Wilson, "Who Who Song" by Jackie Wilson, "The Chase Is On" by Johnny Howard, "Blowin Up My Mind" by The Exciters, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, and "Time Will Pass You By" by Tobi Legend.
