Three DegreesStrategy – Our Tribute To Philadelphia ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
This legendary trio of singers go back to their Philly Soul roots of the 70s – and come across surprisingly well in the process! We'll be the first to admit that we were a bit wary, given the cover and length of time since the group's classic releases – but Three Degrees really step up strongly here, thanks in part to some tight core arrangements that reprise the best Philly sound of the 70s, without ever trying too hard to update the style or give things a too-contemporary twist! The arrangements aren't credited, but production is by Buzz Amato, who also works in the backing group – and the grooves have a warm blend of funky currents and strings that really fit the reworkings of "Love Train", "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Strategy", "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now", "You'll Never Find Another Love", "Me & Mr Jones", and "TSOP".

Three DegreesThree Degrees ... CD
Philadelphia International/Sony (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Smooth female soul from one of Philly's hottest female trios – Gamble & Huff's big answer to First Choice, and an equally important force in 70s female soul! The album's got a nice mixture of Philly groove and tighter crossover arrangements from the likes of Norman Harris, Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula, and Richard Rome – all top-shelf Philly soul talents who really help move the album past the territory of the girl group soul of the trio's earlier work! Titles include the hit "When Will I See You Again", plus the long-running classic "Dirty Ol' Man", and the cuts "Can't You See What You're Doing To Me", "I Didn't Know", "I Like Being A Woman", and "Year Of Decision".

Three DegreesThree Degrees Live ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1975. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The Philly trio gets some great live work done in this tasty little set – hitting the stage with backings from Richard Barrett, and singing before a very enthusiastic crowd in the UK! The style's almost a bit more like the Motown live albums from years back than most Philly International sets – still in the soaring clubby mood of the group's studio work, but with a lot more interplay with the audience, and a style that's sometimes looser and more entertainment-oriented – especially in the choice of a few of the tunes. Titles include "For The Love Of Money", "Living For The City", "Love Train", "Harlem", "When Will I See You Again", "Year Of Decision", and "Free Ride". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Three DegreesWhen Will I See You Again – The Best Of Three Degrees ... CD
Philadelphia International/Music Club (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Late 70s magic from The Three Degrees – a time when this Philly trio was really at the height of their powers! The girl group had recorded previously, in a somewhat more standard style of Philly soul – but during the 70s they hooked up with the studio genius of Gamble & Huff, and managed to make some really amazing music that forever helped transform the style of female soul on the dancefloor! The trio's vocals are a perfect match for the soaring strings and lively rhythms of the Philly International groove – and the cuts are as sweet as they are grooving – a magical balance that few other groups could strike this well. This 2CD set is overflowing with tracks – 31 numbers in all – and also includes some of their Ariola material, in addition to their big cuts for the Philadelphia International label. Titles include "Givin Up Givin In", "The Runner", "Jump The Gun", "Take Good Care Of Yourself", "TSOP", "Love is The Message", "Long Lost Lover", "Get Your Love Back", "I Like Being A Woman", "I Do", "La Chanson Opulaire, "My Simple Heart (ext version)", "Free Ride", "Dirty Ol Man", "Standing Up For Love", "We're All Alone", "Toast Of Love", and "The Golden Lady".

✨✧ Gloria GaynorNever Can Say Goodbye ... LP
MGM, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The start of a very successful run for Gloria Gaynor – a seminal bit of crossover 70s soul – one that perfectly linked the dancefloor with the airwaves, and managed to take on more than a few living rooms as well! Gloria's not entirely in full blown disco-diva mode yet, and works here with a soaring Philly-styled groove – of the sort you'd hear with groups like First Choice or Three Degrees – almost grounded a bit in earlier female soul, especially in the vocals and overall changes in the grooves – yet sparkled up plenty with some fuller, richer 70s arrangements. Those are handled by Norman Harris and Harold Wheeler – who do plenty to warm up the production by Meco – and the set includes the stunning 6 minute version of Gloria's big hit "Never Can Say Goodbye", plus "All I Need Is Your Sweet Lovin", "We Belong Together", "Real Good People", "Honey Bee", and "Reach Out I'll Be There".

High InergySteppin Out ... LP
Gordy, 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A really nice little record from High Inergy – one that sounds a lot better than we remember from some of the girls' other sets! There's almost a bit of a softening going on here – less "inergy" in the grooves, and more of a warm approach to soul that still works in the Philly-inspired girl group 70s style, but kicks things back a bit more – making a shift from Three Degrees into The Jones Girls, if that makes any sense. Titles include "Everytime I See You I Go Wild", "Didn't Wanna Tell You", "Lovin Fever", "Hi", "Fly Little Blackbird", "Beware", "We Are The Future", and "Peaceland". LP, Vinyl record album

StargardWhat You Waitin For ... LP
MCA, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Sweet funky club soul from Stargard – a group who pick up on the guitar-based styles of Labelle, but who have the sweeter soul approach of Three Degrees or First Choice! The bass dominates the arrangements, and there's some surprisingly soulful numbers on the set – despite the silly costumes on the cover! Titles include "Sensuous Woman", "Disco People", "Blue Rain", "Chameleon Lady", and "Starbob". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

VariousDisco Anthems (3LP 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Demon (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $39.99
They definitely got the title right on this one – as the set's overflowing with the kind of classic club tracks that not only broke big in the disco generation of the 70s, but which have also gone on to become the sorts of songs that were real touchstones for the period! Some of these tracks were chart hits, but others were more underground – and together, they represent the cream of the crop of the disco years – tracks that found a way to create non-stop grooves, which are often extended here on special versions taken from 12" singles!

The vaults are open again, and the folks at FTG have done another amazing job of pulling together rare soul tracks from their massive catalog of reissues! FTG focus here mostly on vintage Sony/RCA material – and the 3CD package features a great mix of 70s and 80s soul – tunes that include a fair bit of classics from back in the day – some of which were hits, some that were only appreciated even more strongly in later years!

VariousTwelve Inch 70s – Boogie Wonderland (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $14.99
The 12" single is a format that only makes a good thing better – as it often allows for a bit more space to let a track open up, especially when in the hands of the right producer! The 31 tracks on this set are a perfect illustration of that fact – as they represent a huge wave of 12" single releases from the early years of the format – mostly tracks by bigger artists of the time, but served up here in versions that really top the album versions and the smaller 7" single takes. Almost all the selections here are mixes done for the 12" vinyl format at the time – and they work together wonderfully in a selection of grooves from labels that include Columbia, Epic, and Philadelphia International. Tracks include "Bourgie Bourgie (12" version)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Blame It On The Boogie (12" single version)" by The Jacksons, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (12" version)" by Dan Hartman with Loleatta Holloway, "Boogie Wonderland (12" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "I Love Music (12" version)" by The O'Jays, "Boogie Nights (12" single)" by Heatwave, "Native New Yorker (12" disco)" by Odyssey, "Love Magic (12" version)" by John Davis & The Monster Orchestra, "Disco Nights (12" disco version)" by GQ, "Lovin Is Really My Game (12" version)" by Brainstorm, "Gotta Go Home (ext version)" by Boney M, "No One Home (12" version)" by Lalo Schifrin, "Shame (12" version)" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Let's Love Tonight (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "Dance Little Lady Dance (12" version)" by Tina Charles, "TSOP (special 12" version)" by MFSB with Three Degrees, "That Lady (parts 1 & 2)" by The Isley Brothers, "Was That All It Was (12" version)" by Jean Carn, "How's Your Love Life Baby (special 12" version)" by Jackie Moore, "I've Got The Next Dance (12" disco)" by Deniece Williams, and "Star Love (disco version)" by Cheryl Lynn.

VariousTwelve Inch 70s – More More More (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $14.99
The 12" single was born in the 70s, and it instantly came of age in the disco generation – thanks to help from the sorts of wonderful grooves features in this set! The package is way more than just a batch of hit disco singles – as the range of material is nicely wide, and mixes hits with underground numbers that are well-remembered over the years – many served up here in special versions that were exclusive to the original 12" singles – with the requisite sonic punch you might expect! 3CD set features 32 tracks in all – and titles include "You Don't Have To Go (12" version)" by The Chi-Lites, "Got To Be Real (12" version)" by Cheryl Lynn, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (12" version)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "More More More (12" version)" by Andrea True Connection, "It's A Disco Night (12" disco single)" by Isley Brothers, "Love Train (extended)" by The O'Jays, "Keep On Dancin (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "Taste Of Bitter Love (extended)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Pick Me Up I'll Dance (12" mix)" by Melba Moore, "Gone Gone Gone (disco mix)" by Johnny Mathis, "Rasputin (maxi version)" by Boney M, "This Time Baby (12" version)" by Jackie Moore, "You Bet Your Love (12" version)" by Herbie Hancock, "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick (12" version)" by Ian Dury & The Blockheads, "Giving Up Giving In (long version)" by The Three Degrees, "Strut Your Funky Stuff (UK 12" rmx)" by Frantique, "Shake Your Body Down To The Ground (12" John Luongo disco mix)" by The Jacksons, "That Funky Disco Rhythm (12" version)" by Gene Chandler, "Love Is The Message (special 12" version)" by MFSB, "We're On Our Way Home (parts 1 & 2)" by Brainstorm, and "Don't Leave Me This Way (Tom Moulton mix)(" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.
