Aural ExcitersChinese Rap (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Top Flight, 1982. Very Good ... $7.99
An odd 12" from a group that made a handful of recordings for the Ze label. The track's basically a rip off of Skyy's "Call Me", with some strange ad-libbed "rap" over top, part of which sounds kind of like a Chipmunk's record. Bizarre. 12-inch, Vinyl record

OrlonsBest Of The Orlons ... LP
Cameo/London (UK), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Three girls and a guy – and one of the greatest 60s soul groups to ever come out of Philly! Although they started out mostly in a girl group mode, The Orlons soon expanded their sound into a harder range of soul-based work – really picking up steam on the Philly scene, and pushing their once sweet style into a deeper groove that went onto have a big influence on lots of other local soul groups for years to come. Rosetta Hightower's lead vocals are especially great on these tunes, and she's got a rougher, rumbling sort of quality that almost pushes some tracks into Exciters territory. Titles include "Wah Watusi", "South Street", "Crossfire", "Not Me", "The Conservative", "Don't Hang Up", "Shimmy Shimmy", "Rules Of Love", and "Envy". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousThis Is It – More From The Van McCoy Songbook 1962 to 1977 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
If you only know Van McCoy from his big disco hit of the 70s, then you've got plenty to learn – because the man was very active in soul music during the decade before – a great singer, and a hugely productive songwriter whose tunes provided material for many other big names of his time! Van's tunes often have a great mix of soul and sophistication – a classy approach that's sometimes dubbed uptown soul, and which balances deeply heartfelt vocals with stepping grooves and just the right subtle use of larger backings – all in a way that perfectly enhances the special qualities of the lyrics. That approach is used often here, amidst a few other cuts that echo northern or deep soul modes – all brought together with the usual fantastic Ace Records notes, packaging, and sound quality. Titles include "Hard Way To Go" by The Exciters, "You're Gonna Make Me Love You" by Sandi Sheldon, "Lost & Found" by Kenny Carlton, "If I Don't Love You" by The Choice Four, "Mister DJ" by Francine Barker, "Touch My Heart" by The Vonnettes, "Just In The Nick Of Time" by Toni Lamarr, "Abracadabra" by Erma Franklin, "Baby I Miss You" by The Spellbinders, "I Wanna Love You So Bad" by Bobby Reed, "The Sweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven" by Chris Bartley, "This Is It" by Melba Moore, "Baby Don't Change Your Mind" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Memories & Souvenirs" by Laura Greene, and "Show A Little Appreciation" by The Ad Libs.

✨✧ VariousPanama! Vol 2 – Latin Sounds, Cumbia Tropical & Calypso Funk On The Isthmus 1967 to 1977 ... LP
Soundway (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A second heavy dose of sounds from the Panamanian scene of the 60s and 70s – a long-overdue companion to the previous volume of the series on Soundway, filled with rare gems that are finally getting their first exposure to the world outside the isthmus! The sounds here are completely fresh – somewhat Latin-styled in the rhythms, but often put together in ways that are quite different than any more familiar music of the time – touches of tropical styles, funky grooves, and other odd elements that really keep things interesting – shifting our ears way past any easy expectations, and making us love the Soundway label all over again for their massive work in digging up the rare stuff! The package contains rich notes on the music put together by the label – a look at this oft-ignored musical culture, complete with vintage photos and record images too, so that the whole thing's almost as much of a visual treat as it is an audio one. Titles include "Descarga Superior" by Los Superiores, "Jazzy" by Los Papacitos, "Borambon" by Camilio Azuquita, "La Escoba" by Alfredo Y Su Salsa Montanera, "Love Letters" by Lord Cobra Y Los Hnos Duncan, "Piculina" by Chilo Pitty, "Ain't No Sunshine" by The Soul Fantastics, "Dreams" by The Duncan Brothers, "Tamborito Swing" by Los Silvertones, and "Ese Muerto No Lo Cargo Yo" by The Exciters.

✨✧ VariousRockin Rhythm & Blues From Memphis Vol 2 ... CD
Stomper Time (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent assortment of rare soul from 60s Memphis – most of it from the great House Of The Blues label – an early contemporary of Stax Records, and almost a precursor to the later soul sound of Hi Records too – given that Willie Mitchell features in a fair bit of the singles collected on this set! The style's nice and raw – definitely with the R&B elements promised in the title, but already more directed to the soul styles that Memphis would pioneer in the 60s – especially at the level in which the city was at such a unique crossroads of the south! Rural blues elements get electrified, and folded into a mix of both solo and group styles, sometimes with an early current of funk – in a smashing set of 21 tracks that includes "I Believe To My Soul" by Bill Yates, "Search No More" by Jimmy Dotson, "Thirty Five Thirty" by Willie Mitchell, "Soul House" by Ed Pauling & The Exciters, "No Fooling Around" by Del Monte, "Good Grip" by Daddy Goodloe, "Sooner Or Later" by Larry Birdsong, "Catch That Teardrop" by Five Royales, "Don't Break My Heart" by Roy Brown, "Please Wait" by Charles Jammer, "Fee Bee" by Billy Adams, "Bowleg Twist" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, and "Squeeze Me" by The Aristocrats.

✨✧ OrlonsNot Me ... LP
Cameo, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Hard-rocking soul from The Orlons – and one of the group's best albums! The title cut alone is worth the price of the record – an Exciters-like rough female vocal in the lead, with a male voice doing some great frogman effects on the chorus! Other tracks have the girls moving through a range of other 60s hits – in styles that include sweet harmony soul mixed with the occasional track in a more standard girl group mode. Titles include "Not Me", "Forever", "Mama Didn't Lie", "For Your Love", "Too Strong To Be Strung Along", "Bad Boy", and "He's Braggin". LP, Vinyl record album
