A great take on the sound of Philadelphia International – a double-length set of re-edits of Philly gems from years back – but all done in ways that are completely respectful to the originals! The approach here is wonderful – as warm and soulful as the Philly grooves from back in the day – but often extended and reworked slightly – the way you might have heard on a vintage 12" promo – which is even more impressive once you consider that some of these tracks never came out in that format! The choice of tracks is totally right on the money – and a great demonstration of that old school edit mode that never tried to mess with the track at all – just increase the pleasure it brought to the dancefloor – and the set features 21 very long tracks, including "Satisfaction Guaranteed (Morning Star re-edit)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Only The Strong Survive (J*Ski re-edit)" by Billy Paul, "Free Love (Victor Rosado re-edit)" by Jean Carn, "Life On Mars (DJ Mila re-edit)" by Dexter Wansel, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now (The Noodleman re-work)" by McFadden & Whitehead, "Nights Over Egypt (Womack & TOT re-edit) by The Jones Girls, "Strategy (Touchsoul re-edit)" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Let The Dollar Circulate (Scratch N Sniff's ext re-reub)" by Billy Paul, "Darlin Darlin Baby (Deep & Disco re-work)" by The O'Jays, and "Be For Real (Tim McAllister re-edit)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Way way more than just a compilation – a key piece of dancefloor history, and a wonderful document of a club that was as important to the New York scene as The Loft or the Paradise Garage! Nicky Siano's Gallery predated both of those legendary nite spots – and was much more of a home-gr ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. Used
A treasure trove of funk and soul from one heck of a great little label – Columbus, Ohio's short-lived Capsoul imprint – only around for 5 years in the 70s, but home to a great flurry of indie singles! We first caught onto the label's brilliance with their funky classics "Hot ... CD
Peanut Butter Wolf, 1960s/1970s. Used
Soul With A Hole from Mayer Hawthorne and a roster of deep soul legends – 24 deep soul 45s that clearly influenced and are even more clearly deeply loved by the Stones Throw throwback soul revivalist! Hawthorne deftly mixes the material into a stellar DJ set – we'd hire him to spin ... CD

They're not lying about the "impossibly rare" part of the title here – because most of the work on this set is previously unreleased – funky Bay Area gems recorded in the late 60s and early 70s, finally seeing the light of day on this collection! The music represents a much ... CD
Azuli (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CD
Quite possibly our favorite entry in this excellent series – thanks to some wonderful choices from Kenny Dope! Kenny's always been our man for a groove – and here he dips into the crates to pull out some of his favorite club tracks from the 70s and early 80s – an assortment of ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used
A great US take on the Jam Up Twist sound of DJ Andy Smith – the groove he explored on a previous compilation in the UK – now served up here in a different lineup for the states! The music is a mad mix of R&B, jump blues, rockabilly, and other raw sounds from the tail end of the ... CD
Blue Note, 1995. Used
Now out of print, and a heck of a great little set of rare and unissued tracks from the glory days of the Blue Note funk scene! For most of the 80s and early 90s, Blue Note US used to bad mouth the stuff from this period – but by the mid 90s, demand for the funky stuff from collectors and ... CD

Excellent! Charly's dug through the Curtom vaults to come up with this sweet set of hard to find cuts from the 70's, with lots of goodies that highlight the fantastic mellow soul sound of the label. Tracks include "Fill You Up" by Mystique, "I Turn To You" by The Jones Girls, ... CD
Suss'd/Salsoul (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
Salsoul mellow? Believe it or not, the famous disco label had some great chilled-out moments – still as funky as their best clubby tracks, but grooving in a nicely laidback way! The set's one of the most unique collections of Salsoul work we've ever heard – and one of the freshest ... CD
Charly (UK), Mid 70s. Used
Nice compilation of the rare funky tracks that were put out by the All Platinum/Stang/A1/Turbo labels in the mid 70's, but which got lost in the tracks between the big hits. There's some nice stuff on here from Eddie Fisher, The Rimshots, BBP, and Mother Freedom Band. And there's also some hits, ... CD
