Escorts3 Down 4 To Go ... LP
Alithia, 1974. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A great album of sweet soul – and one recorded by a bunch of prisoners at the Rahway Correctional Facility! This was the group's second album, and by this point, three of the members had left prison – hence the "3 Down, 4 To Go" title – but that change in status doesn't stop the group from being as great as they are on their debut – and as before, George Kerr produced the set, and gives the whole thing a sweet New Jersey harmony soul sound – one to rival the best groups of the All Platinum/Stang era! Tracks include "Disrespect Can Wreck", "Corruption", "Brother", "We've Gone Too Far To End It Now", "La La Means I Love You", "The Shoo Nough", and "Let's Make Love (At Home Sometimes)". (Makes you wonder where else they're making love!) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing!)

✨✧ EscortsDisrespect Can Wreck/All We Need (Is Another Chance) ... 7-inch
Alithia, 1974. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Sweet soul from a group of vocalists who were (at the time) sequestered in a New Jersey prison. Don't let the bars keep you back, though, because this is classic east coast harmony stuff. George Kerr wrote and produced, and the a-side's a mellow ballad, and the flip's a socially conscious track about the group's previous criminal history! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousSoul On The Real Side #11 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from this excellent series – one of our most trusted sources for sweet soul and modern soul over the past decade or so! The groove is great – kind of the underground of 70s mellow – artists that might hit the territory of the Isleys or Marvin Gaye, but who are much more obscure – hand-selected by the folks at this UK collective, who really know what they're doing when it comes to vintage soul! All the cuts are great, and some rare groove classics are mixed with newly-discovered gems – in a great package of 20 tracks that includes "My Precious Love" by Gloria Walker, "The Fish Song" by New Creation, "Falling In Love" by Derek Martin, "I'll Be True" by Cookie Woodson, "It's All In The Back Of Me Now" by Linda Perry, "My Eyes" by Ernest Ernie & The Sincerities, "I'm Never Gonna Hurt You Again" by Sonny Munro, "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" by The Escorts, "Just To Satisfy My Baby" by Peggy Gaines, and "Honey Baby" by Innervision.

✨✧ VariousRhythm & Soul – Sweet Love Songs ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of rare mellow soul from back in the day – the kind of sweet soul tracks that broke big on the Philly and New Jersey scenes at the start of the 70s – including a number of gems from the Stang/All-Platinum family of labels! Most tunes are nice and laidback, although a few pick up the pace to mellow midtempo – and the set is filled with the kind of cuts that first had us falling in love with mellow soul many years back – when we started to realize that soul music wasn't just about funk! Titles include "Pretty Pretty" by The Joneses, "Million Dollars" by Soul Generation, "Blind Baby" by New Birth, "Three Minutes To Hey Girl" by George Kerr, "Hypnotized" by Linda Jones, "Gloria" by Enchantment, "Cause I Love You" by Lenny Williams, "Look Over Your Shoulder" by The Escorts, "Yes I'm Ready" by Barbara Mason, "Carla My Love" by The Softones, "A Lover's Stand" by Norma Jenkins & The Dolls, "Bound" by Ponderosa Twins Plus One, "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow" by The O'Jays, and "Me & My Gemini" by First Class.

✨✧ Edge Of DaybreakEyes Of Love ... CD
Numero, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really beautiful album of harmony soul – and a set that we'd already love for its music, even if the group didn't have an interesting story! Edge Of Daybreak are part of a small sub-culture of 70s soul groups – an ensemble who existed behind prison bars, like Power Of Attorney or The Escorts – and like both of those groups, they've got an amazingly strong sound – one that goes way beyond their incarcerated status, and which should have made them (like the other two) worthy of greater attention in the outside world! The material was recorded in 1979, but it's got a fragile early 70s vibe – maybe because that was the last time these guys heard work in the mainstream – and the voices come together with a style that's proud, but quite heartbreaking at times too – a bit like The Whatnauts on their best ballad material. If you dig harmony soul, you'll find plenty to love here – especially if you like early 70s material from Philly and New Jersey – and don't even worry about the behind bars gimmick, because the record has way more to offer than that! Titles include "Let Us", "Eyes Of Love", "I Wanna Dance With You", "Bring Me Down", "Edge Of Daybreak", and "Your Destiny". CD

✨✧ Ohio Penitentiary 511 Jazz EnsembleHard Luck Soul ... CD
Aragorn/Jazzman (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful lost relic, and a monster batch of long jazzy grooves! The album was recorded in the great tradition of "musicans in prison" albums, like those by The Escorts in the early 70s, and it features an incredibly soulful band made up of jazz musicians in lockdown at the Ohio State Penitentiary during the mid 70s! We don't recognize any of the names on the album, but the players work with a hell of a lot of soul and spirit – on longer tracks that almost have the feel of 70s work by The Pharoahs or Phil Cohran's Artistic Heritage Ensemble. Way better than anything you'd usually get of this nature – and definitely light years beyond any school or army band recording – and much more like a 70s underground spiritual jazz set. All of the material was written and arranged by Logan Rollins, and the tracks have a large group feel, with long drawn out grooves, and plenty of room for nice nice solos – and titles include "Psych City", "Mantra Dance", "Counterry Bosa Davan", and "Java Man".
