Three DegreesThree Degrees ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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 smoother pop arrangements from the likes of Norman Harris, Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula, and Richard Rome – and tracks include the hit "When Will I See You Again", plus "Dirty Ol Man", "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 International ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1975. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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 ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ Three DegreesStanding Up For Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet late 70s set from The Three Degrees – who've moved on over to CBS/Epic after their hot streak at Philly International – with a bit more of an expansive sound than usual! They're still working in a core Philly mode with recording at Sigma Sound and arrangements by Richard Rome – but also with tunes that hit a growing range of more sophisticated, adult-oriented themes. The trio are clearly out to show that they're not just a dancefloor act here – as the album features some sensitive ballads – great work from the trio of Sheila Ferguson, Valerie Holiday and the returning Helen Scott. Titles include the slightly funky "Macaroni Man", plus "People With Feeling", "What I Did For Love", "We're All Alone", "Gee Baby", "Standing Up For Love", "In Love We Grow", and "Just Leave Me Alone". 3 bonus tracks on this CD version – "Toast Of Love (non album single)", "Do It (Use Your Mind) (single version)", and "Standing Up For Love (single version)".

✨✧ Muhal Richard AbramsLevels & Degrees Of Light ... CD
Delmark, 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Although recorded early in the career of Muhal Richard Abrams, this brilliant LP shows the pianist/composer turning away from the stock jazz and studio work of earlier years – to develop into one of the richest talents to rise from the Chicago avant underground of the 60s! At the time of the recording, Abrams was the president of the recently-founded AACM – and for the session, he's surrounded himself with some of the best young talents from Chicago, including Thurman Barker, Anthony Braxton, Leroy Jenkins, and Maurice McIntyre – all of whom help to create a complicated web of colors, shapes, and sounds, that prove that the youthful energy of the underground scene was more than capable of crafting sophisticated modernist documents. The album features three long works – "Levels & Degrees Of Light", "The Bird Song", and "My Thoughts Are My Future". CD

✨✧ Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Sealed ... $24.99
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)... $6.99
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!

Jones GirlsAt Peace With Woman ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1980. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Classic Jones Girls for Philly! The record's a landmark album in the shift from Philly disco to sophisticated modern – and the smooth tight vocals of The Jones Girls are to the latter half of Philly what the runaway singing of Three Degrees were to the early half. Includes their excellent remake of the Stylistics' "Children of the Night" – which has a cool sample riff on the intro – plus the cuts "I Just Love The Man", "When I'm Gone", "At Peace With Woman", and "Back In the Day". One of the best female records on Philly International, and with excellent work by Dexter Wansel and Kenny Gamble! 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.

✨✧ VariousTwelve Inch 70s – Boogie Wonderland (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
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.

Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
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.
