Billy Larkin & The DelegatesOrgan Grooves & Soul Brothers – The Best Of Billy Larkin & The Delegates ... CD
Stateside/EMI (UK), 1960s. Used ... $28.99
Massive work from one of the greatest organ combos of the 60s – headed by Hammond genius Billy Larkin, and featuring the amazing Delegates on rhythm, with a young Mel Brown on drums! Larkin had a groove that was all his own – a tight, jukebox-oriented approach to soul jazz organ – one that focused on the rhythms, and let the solos sneak in where they may – a right, tight, and no-nonsense approach that meant that Larkin's grooves were always in demand on the dancefloor! And in fact, the Delegates groove is still burning strongly today – very much in demand in a range of scenes from Northern Soul to Deep Funk to Steppers, and beyond! This tasty little 24 track set brings together some of Billy's best work for the Aura and World Pacific label from the 60s – all tunes with the core grouping of Larkin on Hammond, Hank Swarn on guitar, and Mel Brown on drums – plus added saxophone from Clifford Scott on a number of tracks! Titles include "Pigmy (parts 1 & 2)", "The Peeper", "Foxy Little Ghoul", "Killer Joe", "The Cooker", "Barefootin", "Unit 7", "On Broadway", "Spooky", "Ode To Billie Joe", "Cuchy Frito Man", "Dirty Water", and "Ain't That A Groove".

VariousGhetto Discotheque – 13 Tracks Celebrating The Disco Kings & Queens Who Kept The Faith With The Funk ... CD
Stateside (UK), 1970s. Used ... $17.99
An unfortunate title – but a great set of grooves! The set's pretty unusual in that it brings together disco and club tunes from the late 70s southern scene – most of them recorded for TK records, a few more for Malaco and related labels – all of them bubbling over with that tight funk sound that made the Miami scene so great. The set goes way past the obvious club numbers from the era, and features some lesser-known and hard to find cuts that rock with a harder groove than usual – almost sounding like some of the P&P tunes from up in Harlem at the time. Titles include "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Paul Lewis, "Burning Love Breakdown" by Peter Brown, "I Get Lifted" by KC & The Sunshine Band, "Take A Chance" by Queen Samantha, "Blackwater Gold" by Sunshine Band, "Is It In" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Ghetto Disco" by Ted Taylor, "Odyssey (part 2)" by Johnny Harris, "Disco Energy" by Universal Energy, "Inner City Blues" by Paul Lewis, and "Do What You Wanna Do" by T-Connection. 13 tracks in all.

✨✧ VariousTalcum Soul 2 – 25 Stonking Northern Soul Greats ... CD
Stateside/EMI (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of 60s soul tunes – put together for the UK Northern Soul punters, but equally enjoyable as a plain ol' collection of rare singles! The cuts are mostly pulled from older labels that are now owned by EMI – like United Artists, Veep, Liberty, Capitol, and other US 60s soul imprints – but despite that major label affiliation, we can guarantee that you'll find most of the cuts quite hard to locate otherwise. Titles include "You're A Puzzle" by The Jive 5, "I'm On My Way" by Dean Parrish, "I'm Standing" by Rufus Lumley, "What Shall I Do" by Frankie & The Classicals, "So Is The Sun" by World Column, "Grooving At The GoGo" by The 4 Larks, "My Dear Heart" by Shawn Robinson, "Heartbreaker" by HB Barnum, "By Yourself" by JD Martin, "I Walked Away" by Bobby Paris, "Right On" by Al DeLory, "Thumb A Ride" by Earl Wright Orchestra, and "A Lot Of Love" by Homer Banks.

✨✧ Ecstasy, Passion, & PainEcstasy, Passion & Pain (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roulette/Stateside (UK), 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Seminal early disco work from Ecstasy Passion & Pain – a group with a much harder soul approach than some of their counterparts on the 70s Philly scene! Singer Barbara Roy really gives the group a wonderful sound here – working with a level of soul that matches some of the deeper soul divas of the late 60s, but able to soar along easily with the album's full, rich Philly arrangements from Bobby Martin – in a way that gives the record a range that far surpasses most other female soul albums coming out from Philly in the 70s. Roy's passion and vitality make the album way more than just a "singer with disco backing in the studio set" – and Martin wonderfully tailors the sound of each tune to match the spirit of Roy's vocals. Titles include "I'll Do Anything For You," "Ask Me," "Try To Believe Me," "I Wouldn't Give You Up," and "Don't Burn Your Bridges Behind You." CD also features 6 bonus tracks – including "Touch & Go" in both 7" and 12" mixes, plus "Dance The Night Away", "One Beautiful Day", "Passion", and "There's So Much Love All Around Me". CD

✨✧ Little BeaverVery Best Of Little Beaver ... CD
TK/Stateside (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the most wonderfully tripped-out soul of the 70s – recorded by guitarist Willie "Little Beaver" Hale during his glory years in Miami! Beaver's got a great sound on his guitar – schooled in blues, but inflected with loads of sweet 70s electric touches – in a manner that's somewhere between Shuggie Otis and Willie Hutch. And like Shuggie and Willie, Little Beaver has a really wicked style of singing – hitting just the right notes to match the soulful vibe of his mellow strings, going for an approach that comes up with some tremendously super-dope moments overall! The whole thing's great, and the 17 track set is overflowing with essential bits from an artist we love to death! Titles include "Party Down (parts 1 & 2)", "Let's Stick Together", "Money Vibrations", "We Three", "Get Into The Party Life", "Wish I Had A Girl Like You", "Groove On", "Little Girl Blue", "Party Times", "I Feel Like Crying", "I Can Dig It Baby", and "When Was The Last Time".

✨✧ Lou RawlsI Can't Make It Alone – The Axelrod Years ... CD
Stateside/EMI (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky funky Lou Rawls – a collection of work from Lou's landmark years with David Axelrod! Even before Axe showed up on the scene, Lou was still one heck of a great singer – with a voice that could easily handle the farthest reaches of jazz, soul, and gospel – but it was really Axelrod who helped Lou's great sound stick, with some equal (and often under-credited assistance) from arranger HB Barnum! The pair took Lou's vocals, and set them up in a groove that was hip, syncopated, and often filled with a slightly more righteous quality than Lou had been using – a perfect style for the end of the 60s, handled in a way that quickly bridged the worlds of soul, rock, and pop – and which often had a funky undercurrent that's made the tracks quite appealing to today's sample-searching crowd! This well-done collection brings together tunes from 9 different Axelrod/Rawls albums – complete with some great notes that help unlock the magic of the work, and a total of 25 numbers that include "Evil Woman", "Soul Serenade", "It's An Uphill Climb", "How Can That Be", "Can You Dig It (monologue)", "Take Me For What I Am", "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)", "For What It's Worth", "It's An Uphill Climb To The Bottom", "Dead End Street", and "Your Good Thing".

✨✧ Timmy ThomasWhy Can't We Live Together – Best Of The TK Years 1972 to 81 ... CD
TK/Stateside (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from Timmy Thomas – a southern soulster with a groove like no other! At some level, Timmy shared the bluesy and sweet soul styles of his Miami contemporaries at the TK label – but at another, he had this wild approach that often used bits of electronic percussion, in a primitive drum machine mode that gave his tracks a wonderful future soul sound that was really rare for the time! Timmy's best known for his huge crossover classic "Why Can't We Live Together" – a massive tune that was very much in the Stevie Wonder/Syreeta mode – but this set brings to light a motherlode of Timmy's other work from the time, all steeped in spare organ lines, deep soul vocals, and lightly skipping percussion that makes for a really compelling groove! Titles include "Why Can't We Live Together", "Funky Me", "I've Got To See You Tonight", "You're The Song I Always Wanted To Sing", "What Can I Tell Her", "Sweet Brown Sugar", "People Are Changin", "Ebony Affair", "Dizzy Dizzy World", "Love Shine", "Stone To The Bone", "Freak In Freak Out", "Take Care Of Home", "Fox With The Box", and "Are You Crazy (part 1)".

✨✧ Baby WashingtonI've Got A Feeling – The Best Of Baby Washington ... CD
Stateside/EMI (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the best collection we've ever seen on Baby Washington – a great 60s soul singer who's got a heck of a lot more to offer than just her best-remembered hit! Despite a diminutive name, Baby's got a heck of a great vocal style – one that's heartbreakingly sweet at times, but which also comes across with a deeper soul approach that was often a strong link between uptown and southern soul styles in the 60s. This massively overstuffed set brings together more work from Washington than we've ever seen on one CD before – a selection of tunes from both her Sue and Veep Records singles and albums of the time. 28 tracks in all, including "The Ballad Of Bobby Dawn", "There He Is", Leave Me Alone", "Careless Hands", "Standing On The Pier", "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby Again", "No Time For Pity", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Take Me Like I Am", "Get A Hold Of Yourself", "Hurt So Bad", "Think About The Good Times", "Hold Back The Dawn" and more!
