✨✧ EbonysNation Time/I Believe ... 7-inch
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Two nice ones from the Ebonys' rare years at Philly International. "Nation Time" is an O'Jays-esque political soul groover – of the "stand up and be counted" vein.

Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the strangest albums ever issued on Philly International – a set of tunes by Dick Jensen, who was part blue-eyed soul singer, part easy male vocalist – sounding here as if he'd almost hit the market about 5 years too late to make a difference.

Philadelphia International/Sony, 1975. Used ... $9.99
Teddy Pendergrass and crew get a bit more political than on earlier releases, and adopt the righteous bubbling soul groove that had put the O'Jays over the top a few years earlier – with incredible results! The title cut – "Wake Up Everybody" – would prove to be a great ... (Soul) read more CD
