VariousNothing But A House Party – The Birth Of The Philly Sound 1967 to 1971 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Some folks might associate Philadelphia soul with the famous Gamble & Huff productions of the 70s disco years – but the city was already overflowing with great music in the years before Philadelphia International – as you'll hear in this totally groovy set! Philly was making as much great soul music in the 60s as Detroit, Chicago, and New York – thanks to an earlier musical framework that was set up by the city's big pop hits of the late 50s – which provided plenty of labels, studios, and other facilities for Philly's ever-growing array of soul talents, too – so much so that by the end of the 60s, the city was turning into a destination for singers outside of town – almost as much of a musical magnet as studios in Memphis or Muscle Shoals! This set does a great job of bringing together both aspects of that scene – wonderful homegrown talent, mixed with outsiders to really took off in the new Philly sound of the 60s – a joyous, positive, upbeat approach that worked wonderfully well for a variety of artists. Titles include "Your Fool Still Loves You" by Oscar Weathers, "It's All Over But The Shouting" by George Tindley, "You've Been Untrue" by The Delfonics, "Ain't Nothing But A House Party" by The Show Stoppers, "Peace To You Brother" by Lou Johnson, "Christine" by Executive Suite, "Help Me" by Honey & The Bees, "You Got What I Need" by Freddie Scott, "Rainmaker" by The Moods, "Keep On Striving" by Moses Smith, "That's The Price You Have To Pay" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "What You Gave Up" by The Continental 4, "Every Day Is A Holiday" by The Intruders, "Standing In The Darkness" by The Ethics, and "Girl You're Too Young" by Len Barry.

✨✧ Girls At Our BestPleasure (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Happy Birthday/Cherry Red (UK), 1981. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Girls At Our Best only gave the world one album back in the day – but it's a hell of a set that has the British group standing strongly next to contemporaries like Au Pairs, The Slits, and Siouxsie & The Banshees! Given the vocal style of lead singer Judy Evans at times, the group definitely has echoes of the latter – but during their early, punkier days – a quality that's echoed by the raw Leeds-style guitar riffs that dominate the record and really give things an edge! But there's also some sweeter moments, too – almost in the spirit of Marine Girls or Shop Assistants – which sometimes carry a political message that's maybe even more powerful with the change in style – making for a really well-rounded set that stretches through cuts that include "Goodbye To Jazz", "I'm Beautiful Now", "Too Big For Your Boots", "Pleasure", "Fun City Teenagers", "Heaven", "Fast Boyfriends", and "She Flipped". The original album is expanded here with a huge amount of bonus tracks – single cuts "Politics", "Warm Girls", "Getting Nowhere Fast", "Go For Gold", "This Train", and "It's Fashion" – plus two demo tracks, seven BBC tracks, a fourteen track Edinburgh live set from 1981, and a thirteen track New York concert from the same year!
