Three DegreesThree Degrees International ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
Seminal work by Three Degrees – stepping proudly here from their girl group roots, into a dramatic pre-disco mode that's clearly influenced by similar Philly work by First Choice – some of the finest material ever! The music is by MFSB, with arrangements by Philly maestros like Bobby Martin and John Davis – and given that pedigree it's as wonderful as you'd imagine. Paired with the sweetly beautiful singing by the lovely voices of Three Degrees, this is some truly great Philadelphia International soul! Titles include "TSOP", "Loving Cup", "Get Your Love Back", "Long Lost Lover", "Take Good Care Of Yourself", "Another Heartache", and a nice cover of Marvin Gaye's "Distant Lover". This remastered CD version from Big Break UK has a number of bonus tracks: a Tom Moulton mix of "TSOP", Japanese single version of "When Will I See You Again", "Midnight Train", "Nigai Namida", "La Chanson Populaire" and "Somos Novios (It's Impossible)".

✨✧ 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".

Silver ConventionSave Me ... LP
Midland, 1975. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A huge breakout moment for disco in the 70s – the first album from Silver Convention, a very early example of the European power on the club scene! The group's the brainchild of arranger Sylvester Levay and producer Michael Kunze – who come up with some great German disco rhythms for the record, mixed with soaring female trio vocals, by a group that includes two German gals and American soul singer Roberta Kelly! The vocal approach is similar to that 70s Philly group mode – popularized by First Choice, Three Degrees, and others – and pumped it up with the Munich sound of throbbing bass and heavy beats, which was arguably one of the first steps towards house music in the 80s. Titles include the huge hit "Fly Robin Fly", plus "Save Me", "I Like It", "Chains Of Love", "Tiger Baby", "Always Another Girl", and "Heart Of Stone". LP, Vinyl record album

StratavariousStratavarious ... LP
Roulette, 1977. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A great album of jazzy club tracks – put together by John Usry Jr, who'd done some work with other 70s club acts like Three Degrees, Love Committee, and First Choice. Most of the tracks on the record feature female backing vocals – in the style of work by those other groups – but the real standout aspect is a jazzy harp, played in a manner that makes us think of Dorothy Ashby going disco. The best cut on the album is the 8 minute "Nightfall", which has some great trumpet work by Guido Basso – and other nice moments include the mellow "Touching", and the cuts "I Got Your Love" and "Love Me", which both have some nice guitar. Recorded in Canada, and very typical of that baroque Canadian approach to disco. LP, Vinyl record album

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! Titles include "Shake Your Body (12" John Luongo disco mix)" by the Jacksons, "Boogie Wonderland (12" mix)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Boogie Nights (12" version)" by Heatwave, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (12" mix)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Native New Yorker (12" disco mix)" by Odyssey, "Keep On Dancing (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "I Love America (12" mix)" by Patrick Juvet, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (12" version)" by Dan Hartman with Loleatta Holloway, "Souvenirs (12" version)" by Voyage, "Givin Up Givin In (long version)" by Three Degrees, "Strut Your Funky Stuff (UK 12" rmx)" by Frantique, "Got To Be Real (12" version)" by Cheryl Lynn, "Turn The Beat Around (12" version)" by Vickie Sue Anderson, "Supernature (12" mix)" by Cerrone, "More More More (12" version)" by Andrea True Connection, "Can't Stop The Music (extended)" by Village People, "Rasputin (maxi version)" by Boney M, and "I Can't Stand The Rain (12" version)" by Eruption.

VariousLegacy Of Disco (3CD set – with bonus track) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
A great little set of classic disco tracks, but one that also includes a few rare mixes too – all brought together in a monumental tribute to the sound of the east coast scene at the end of the 70s! The package is heavy on tracks with origins in Philly and New York – including a fair bit of Philadelphia International gems from the Gamble & Huff team, mixed with other work from the larger holdings of Sony labels – including Epic, Columbia, RCA, and Buddah at the time. There's a nicely unified feel to the whole thing – one that really makes us re-appreciate some of these cuts in the setting – and titles include unreleased cuts "Love is The Message (Danny Krivit edit)" by MFSB, "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love (DJ Reverend P edit)" by The Emotions "You Can't Had From Yourself (Mike Maurro rmx)" by Teddy Pendergrass, and "Love Epidemic (DJ Reverend P edit)" by The Trammps" – plus the cuts "Don't Leave Me This Way (Tom Moulton mix)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Was That All It Was (78rpm version)" by Jean Carne, "Ain't No Smoke Without Fire (DJ Reverend P edit)" by Eddie Kendricks, "Bad Luck (Mike Maurro ext rmx)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Where Will You Go When The Party's Over (Tom Moulton mix)" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "This Time Baby (Tom Moulton mix)" by Jackie Moore, "You Stepped Into My Life (John Luongo rmx)" by Melba Moore, "I Love Music (Tom Moulton mix)" by The O'Jays, "See You When I Get There (Tom Moulton mix)" by Lou Rawls, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This (DJ Reverend P edit)" by Idris Muhammad, "Taste Of Bitter Love" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "It's In Your Blood (special disco version)" by Linda Hopkins, "Boogie Wonderland (12" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Walk Right Now (John Luongo disco mix)" by The Jacksons, "Standing Right Here (Tom Moulton mix)" by Melba Moore, "Groovin You (12" mix)" by Harvey Mason, and "Dirty Old Man (Tom Moulton ext 12" mix)" by Three Degrees.

✨✧ Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tremendously soulful session from the late 70s P-Funk empire – sung by a group who were George Clinton's answer to Three Degrees, First Choice, and other female club trios of the time! The sound here is hardly as disco as those other groups, though – and there's plenty of funky Clinton touches in the mix – including rumbling basslines, raspy guitars, and a tightly focused groove that has the singers Dawn Silva, Sheila Horn, and Jeanette McGruder working equally with the larger group of musicians on the record. Production is by Bootsy Collins and Clinton, with horn arrangements by Fred Wesley – which makes for some great Horny Horns funk touches on most tracks! The title cut – "Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy" – runs on as a long P-Funk groove for about 15 minutes, but other tracks are shorter, and titles include "I'm Holding You Responsible", "Smoke Signals", "Party Up In Here", and "Didn't Mean To Fall In Love".

✨✧ Roy BuddDiamonds ... LP
Cinephile/Castle (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Heist films always provided some of the best soundtracks of the 70's, and this one (starring Robert Shaw and Richard Roundtree, and issued in the US as Diamond Shaft) is no exception! Roy Budd rises to the groovy occasion and scores some excellent moments that match a light orchestral sound with a throbbing electric bass and percussion underground – in a style that's like Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. The LP's overflowing with tracks, including a few bonus mixes, and there's even 2 vocal numbers that feature The Three Degrees. Titles include "The Thief", "Beauty & The Bass", "Diamonds", "Party Piece", "Thief On the Prowl", and more! Nice notes, and some nicely funky crime themes, too! Nice gatefold cover, too!

✨✧ ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements from George Andrews and Joe Scott that mix fuller strings with tighter grooves at the core – in a way that really sets the vocals free amidst some very interesting material! Had the girls only cut this record, it might have been a 70s soul hit – but it's unfortunately gotten lost to the shifting sands of time because it's not as iconic as their hits. Don't make that mistake, though, because the album's a real charmer – and titles include "Boy You're Too Young", "There's Nothing In This World", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Take Me", "We Got A Lot Of Lovin To Do", and "Strange I Still Love You". The 1972 album The Shirelles is surprisingly great later work by The Shirelles – nice and soulful, thanks to arrangements from David Van De Pitte and Wade Marcus – both of whom push the trio way past their roots, into more sophisticated group soul for the 70s! The approach carries the best (then) contemporary styles from New York and Philly – particularly that strong way of mixing group vocals with focused grooves – as you'd hear from some of the more successful male groups of the time on RCA, like Main Ingredient or Choice Four. The Shirelles have a strong sense of harmony that really pushes the tunes forward – and the material is nice and creative – with titles that include "Walk On In", "Brother Brother", "Sunday Dreaming", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Let's Stay Together", "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", and "Drowning In The Sea Of Love". CD also features bonus tracks – "Let's Give Each Other Love", "Do What You've A Mind To", and "Touch The Wind". CD

FTG, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CDs ... Out Of Stock
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! There's also some remixes and single versions – and the 47 track set features titles that include "Go For It (12" version)" by Herbie Hancock, "Disco Lady (ext version with Johnnie's rap)" by Johnnie Taylor, "Love Brought Me Back (12" version)" by DJ Rogers, "In The Night" by Cheryl Lynn, "Hi How Ya Doin (7" version)" by Kenny G, "Looking Up To You (inst reprise)" by Michael Wycoff, "Between The Sheets" by The Isley Brothers, "I Know Your Hot Spot (12" version)" by Enchantment, "Going Back To My Roots (12" mix)" by Odyssey, "Release The Beast" by Breakwater, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Brown, "I'm In Love (12" mix)" by Evelyn King, "Bourgie Bourgie" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Mystery Lady (ext version)" by Billy Ocean, "Lovergirl (12" dance mix)" by Teena Marie, "Let's Here It For The Boy (extended)" by Deniece Williams, "This Time I'll Be Sweeter" by Angela Bofill, "Shame (12" mix)" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Sexual Healing (orig voc version)" by Marvin Gaye, "Put A Little Love On Me (long version)" by Delegation, "Take Good Care Of Yourself" by Three Degrees, "Stone In Love With You" by Johnny Mathis, "Saturday Night (7" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, and "Got To Find My Way Back To You (12" dance mix)" by Tavares.

✨✧ VariousTwelve Inch 70s – Boogie Wonderland (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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.

Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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.
