Archie Bell & The DrellsTightening It Up – Best Of Archie Bell & The Drells ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $6.99
20 track compilation that spans the career of groovy soulster Archie Bell, and his group The Drells. The set includes Bell's huge hit "Tighten Up", but it's also got a great array of other material from his different recording periods – all of which show him pushing way past his original groove, into a much richer soul vein. There's even stuff from his early and later Philly years – and titles include "My Balloon's Going Up", "(There's Gonna Be A) Showdown", "Girl You're Too Young", "Soul City Walk", "Strategy", "I Could Dance All Night", and "Ain't Nothing For A Man In Love".

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsLet's Groove – The Archie Bell & The Drells Story ... CD
Big Break (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A great great group who never lost their groove – featured here on a set that's the first-ever label-spanning collection of their genius! The set begins with a huge amount of tracks from the Atlantic Records years of Archie Bell & The Drells – records that start with their raw Texas funk groove, then move into the group hitting a Philly soul mode – which they do wonderfully, and continue to expand their sound in a really great way! The second half focuses on their sublime 70s Philly gems for Gamble & Huff – tracks that showed up on the Philadelphia International family of labels, and which had Archie and the group sounding equally great on the modern club dancefloors! There's also some rare material that was recorded in between these stretches for the Glades label – and the 44 track, 2CD set is overflowing with rare gems, well-remembered favorites, and other well-chosen tracks. Titles include "Soul City Walk", "I Love My Baby", "My Balloon's Going Up", "You Never Know What's On A Woman's Mind", "Girls Grow Faster Than Boys", "Old People", "Strategy", "Show Me How To Dance", "Glad You Could Make It (12" disco)", "Go For What You Know", "Showdown", "Dog Eat Dog", "A Soldier's Prayer 1967", "Do The Choo Choo", "Girl You're Too Young", "Don't Let The Music Slip Away", "Wrap It Up", "Deal With Him", "Archie's In Love", "Ain't Nothing For A Man In Love", "I've Been Missing You", and "Nothing Comes Easy".

Archie Bell & The DrellsHere I Go Again ... LP
Atlantic (UK), 1972. Near Mint- ... $13.99 16.99
Nice compilation that brings together some of the excellent lesser-known work that Archie and the group did for Atlantic in the late 60s! You may know their funky hit "Tighten Up" (not on this album), but after that, Archie and The Drells got into an excellent Philly soul vein, with fantastic loping grooves, and very catchy tracks that never let up. This album's got plenty of those, and titles include all-time favorites of ours like "My Balloon's Going Up", "Houston Texas", "I Love My Baby", "There's Gonna Be A Showdown", "Giving Up Dancing", and "Girl, You're Too Young".

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsThere's Gonna Be A Showdown ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stormer from Archie Bell & The Drells – one of our favorite soul albums ever, and a masterpiece of mid-tempo soul! Archie Bell & The Drells sound amazing here – light years from the rougher funk of their earlier years, yet still with a groove that's undeniable – an incredible meeting of soul music scenes handled by the young Gamble & Huff team – who not only produce most of the record, but also wrote most of the tracks on the set! The groove is lightly lilting, and totally on the money – a sound that's incredible, and hard to describe in words – but which really grabs us from the get-go. All tracks are great, and totally fresh – and tunes include "I Love My Baby", "Houston Texas", "Showdown", "My Balloon's Going Up", "Giving Up Dancing", "Girl You're Too Young", and "Green Power". CD

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

Atlantic, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Two rare numbers from Archie and the group's time at Muscle Shoals! Dave Crawford is producing – and "Wrap It Up" has a great raspy groove that's got more than a bit of the south in it to push the hook over the top! "Deal With Him" has a sweet harmony approach, a midtempo swing, and this weird electric piano that sounds like Sun Ra! Very odd – but a really catchy tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsTighten Up ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An incredible bit of southern funk – the first landmark LP by Archie Bell & The Drells, and the first big burst of energy from the Texas scene of the 60s! The album's incredible – with Archie up front on rough-hewn vocals, the band grooving in a mad tangle of guitar, bass, and drums, and some super-fierce horn work by the TSU Tornadoes! You've no doubt heard the band's classic "Tighten Up (part 1)", but this album also includes the incredible "part 2" to the track – which takes the groove a million miles higher! And the whole album's equally great – filled with other tight soul gems that include "A Thousand Wonders", "I Don't Want To Be A Playboy", "Give Me Time", and "When You Left Heartache Began".

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsWhere Will You Go When The Party's Over ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An excellent set of midtempo soul tracks recorded at Sigma Sound – and probably the group's greatest album for Philly International! The progression from raw Texas funk to smooth Philly soul was a big one – but Archie and crew did it wonderfully, and kept a lot of their soul intact during the move – really shining strongly in this new mode, and keeping their sound alive a lot longer than most of their late 60s contemporaries. Proof that the group sound was one of the biggest assets of the Philly imprint – whatever the form, and whatever the origin. Includes the stellar cuts "Don't Let Love Get You Down" and "Where Will You Go When The Party's Over" – plus "Everybody Have A Good Time", "I Swear You're Beautiful", "I Bet You I Can Do That Dance You're Doing", and "Nothing Comes Easy".

Harvey ScalesLove-Itis – All The Rare & Unissued 45s From The Vaults Of Magic Touch 1967 to 1977 ... CD
Magic Touch/Funky Delicacies, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A beautifully done look at the music of Harvey Scales – a damn funky cat from the Milwaukee scene, finally getting his due! The package is overflowing with groovers – hard funky 45 cuts that Scales recorded for the Magic Touch label – mostly in the late 60s and start of the 70s – wrapped up here in a lavish booklet that's filled with well-researched notes, and vintage photos – a set that really sets a whole new standard for the Tuff City label! Scales' groove is one that we've always loved on 45 – a dancefloor-directed version of soul that falls somewhere in a space between Archie Bell & The Drells and Dyke & The Blazers – but with a heavier sound overall. Yet having all these cuts together in one place seems to give them even more intensity than before – a powerhouse package of 20 rare tracks that run the gamut from upbeat soul to heavy funk to a few early disco numbers as well. Titles include "Love-It is", "Broadway Freeze", "Get Down", "The Yolk", "The Funky Yolk", "Get Down 1970", "Funky Football", "Trying To Survive", "Bump Your Thang", "Groove On Sexy Lady", "Rock The World", "Welcome Home", "The Sound Of Soul", "Too Good To Be True", and "Love Is A Gas". Beautifully done package – with an almost Numero-like feel inside the booklet! CD

VariousReady Or Not – Thom Bell Philly Soul Arrangements & Productions 1965 to 1978 ... CD
Ace/Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Sublime soul from the great Thom Bell – one of our favorite arranger, producer, songwriters of all time – and a talent who really helped push the Philly soul scene much farther than most during the 70s! Bell was trained as a classical pianist as a kid – which might explain part of his ear for a special sort of tune – but by the time of this work, he was neck-deep in the soul scene – and working with a fantastic track record for bringing the best out of a very wide variety of artists! Bell was especially great with groups – he helped more than a few really stretch out their wings and grow – but as you'll hear here, Thom also handled a fantastic range of music in Philly studios – all with magnificent touches that really set the tunes apart from the rest – French horns, harpsichord, and especially that twangy sitar sound that worked so well with a harmony ballad. The set's got 23 tracks in all, and a massive set of notes on the man and his music – with titles that include "What I See" by Three Degrees, "Here I Go Again" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "You've Been Untrue" by The Delfonics, "Moody Woman" by Jerry Butler, "Something For Nothing" by MFSB, "One Man Band" by Ronnie Dyson, "Close The Door" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Life Is A Song Worth Singing" by Johnny Mathis, "Look The Other Way" by Lesley Gore, "What Kind Of Lady" by Dee Dee Sharp, "It's The Same Old Love" by The Courtship, "Do You Remember Yesterday" by The Intruders, "Track Of The Cat" by Dionne Warwick, and "I Wanna Be A Free Girl" by Dusty Springfield.

VariousWrap It Up – The Isaac Hayes & David Porter Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 20.99
That's a young Isaac Hayes on the cover, sitting at the piano next to David Porter – his key songwriting partner at Stax Records in the 60s – at a time before both artists had gone onto their own solo recordings for the label! The Hayes/Porter team gave Stax some of their best songs during the second half of the 60s – often numbers that have a hip, hard-grooving style that really pushed the boundaries of Memphis soul – and as you'll hear here, the duo's work was not just recorded for their main label, but also handled by a wealth of other artists too – mostly soul singers of the late 60s, but also featured here on a few later tracks as well. Those later cuts are ever bit as soulful as the 60s material that makes up most of the collection – and the package also features some unissued numbers too –served up here in a list of 24 titles that include "Can't Trust Your Neighbor" by Freddie King, "60 Minutes Of Your Love" by Homer Banks, "I'll Understand" by Edwin Starr & Blinky, "Left Over Love" by Ruby Johnson, "Hold On I'm Coming" by The Righteous Brothers, "You Got Me Hummin" by The Hassles, "I'm Dedicating My Life" by Danny White, "Love Is After Me" by Charlie Rich, "Your Good Thing" by Mable John, "You Don't Know Like I Know" by Keith Powell & Billie Davis, "Wrap It Up" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Baby" by Rachel Sweet, "As Long As I've Got You" by The Emotions, "I Take What I Want" by The Bishops, "The Sweeter He Is (parts 1 & 2)" by Soul Children, and an unreleased alternate of "Toe Hold" by Johnnie Taylor.

✨✧ VariousNorman Jay Presents Philadelphia – The Underground Anthems Of Philadelphia Soul 1973 to 1981 ... CD
Harmless/Philadelphia International (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A masterful collection of Philly soul – hand-picked by the man who was spinning most of the classics back in the day! British DJ Norman Jay was the king of rare groove even before these grooves were rare – collecting American imports for play in the underground London scene, and really getting to know the Philly scene in a slightly left-of-center way. Norman's take on the sound of Philly International is really fresh – and nicely different from that offered on some of the other collections of work from the famous label. The set's got a good blend of lesser-known cuts and classic underground numbers – with tracks that include "Ain't No Time Fa Nothin" by The Futures, "Bump De Bump" by Monk Montgomery, "We Got Some Catchin Up To Do" by Jean Carn, "This Air That I Breathe" by The O'Jays, "In Good Faith" by Norman Harris, "Let Me Be Good To You" by Lou Rawls, "It's Hard No To Like You" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Let's Party Down" by MFSB, and "False Faces" and "East" by Billy Paul. 20 tracks on 2CDs!

✨✧ VariousSomething New To Do – The Phillip Mitchell Songbook ... CD
Kent (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing tribute to one of the best soul songwriters in the 70s – the mighty Phillip Mitchell, a key force in mixing together deep soul roots with more sophisticated styles for the time! Mitchell's got this mighty positive way of putting over a tune – lyrics that still hold onto the emotion of the past, yet also come through things with a forward-thinking style too – one that really helps get past obvious cliches, and which always seems to make a Mitchell-penned track stand out as the real gem on an album of 70s soul! Many of the artists here are from a southern soul background – no surprise, as Mitchell made most of his magic south of the Mason/Dixon line – and the set really brings together a great number of artists, and really shows the deep reach that Mitchell had at the time. Titles include "Hitch Hiking To Heartbreak Road" by Bobo Mr Soul, "Something New To Do" by Bobby Sheen, "Carry Me" by Ernie Shelby, "I Don't Do This" by Sidney Joe Qualls, "Free For All" by Mel & Tim, "Come Through Me" by Garland Green, "Here I Am Again" by Candi Staton, "You Made Me What I Am" by Erma Coffee, "Gonna Have A Murder On Your Hands" by JJ Williams, "Archie's In Love" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Leftovers" by Millie Jackson, "How Can I Go On Without You" by Corey Blake, and "That's The Way I Wanna Live My Life" by Tommie Lee.

Here it is, the mother of them all! The set's got 8CDs worth of killer soul, funk, and Rhythm & Blues – all culled from the rich history of the Atlantic records label, and lovingly put together with great notes and everything! Although this sort of set usually tends to be a bit simplistic, this box actually features a beautiful mix of tracks, lots of which are hard to get in any format. It's a lot to go through, but it's worth the trip! We can't even begin to list the tracks here, there's 203(!) of them in all, but some of the artists include the Bar Kays, the Beginning of the End, Archie Bell & The Drells, Ruth Brown, Solomon Burke, the Capitols, Clarence Carter, the Chords, the Cookies, Don Covay, King Curtis, Tyrone Davis, the Drifters, Roberta Flack, King Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Major Harris, Donny Hathaway, the Ikettes, Willis Jackson, Nat Kendricks & The Swans, Barabra Lewis,the Mar-keys, Les McCann & Eddie Harris, Stick McGhee, Otis & Carla, the Persuaders, Percy Sledge, The Spinners, Willie Tee, Joe Tex, Chuck Willis, Betty Wright and loads more!

If you know the "free soul" series, you'll know that it's a mind-expanding one – pushing past the obvious selections of tracks, to come up with some great lost album gems from the 70s, nicely situated next to some more familiar numbers which sound equally fresh in this context.

Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A side of Miami soul you never would have expected – hard-grooving, deep-toned soul cuts that definitely earn a Northern Soul label – even though they were cut down south! If you think the sound of Miami is only the sound of club, guess again – because back before the TK label was hitting the charts with its disco hits, the company issued a huge range of killer soul singles – wonderful rare gems that easily compete with the best late 60s grooves you'd hear from Memphis, Detroit, Chicago, or Philly! Plus, there's also more wonderful work from the late 70s – cuts that came out during the disco years, but with a deep soul sound that's amazing – again another surprise. Some of the artists here are ones you'll know from later hits, and others are lost to the shifting sands of time –all packaged together in a set that's got plenty of visuals to offer the rare record collector too. Titles include "Come To Me" by William Howard, "Listen To My Heartbeat" by Little Beaver, "Ain't Nothing For A Man In Love" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "I Can't Speak" by Jimmie Bo Horne, "Come On Playboy" by Audrey Royal & The Reid Singers, "Fools Are Not Born" by Clarence Reid, "Jazz Freak" by Paulette Reaves, "Sugar Baby" by Wildflower, "Never Had A Love So Good" by Charles Johnson, "Our Day Is Here" by JP Robinson, "I'm A Believer" by Benny Latimore, and "I Can't See Him Again" by The Twans.

Titles include "I Should Be Your Lover", "One Night Affair", "Deeper", "Just Can't Get Enough", "I've Got The Groove", and "You're The Best Thing Since Candy" – and arrangements are by Bobby Martin, Thom Bell, and Richard Rome.
