Gladys Knight & The PipsAnthology – The Best Of Gladys Knight & The Pips ... CD
Motown, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Although Gladys Knight & The Pips didn't cut their first recordings or their biggest recordings for Motown, they did still do a pretty nice job at the label – as you'll hear on this nice set that brings together a nice batch of their best tracks. Includes their original version of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", plus "The Nitty Gritty", "Tracks Of My Tears", "Every Little Bit Hurts", "Everybody Needs Love", "Neither One Of Us", and "Make Me The Woman That You Go Home To". 40 tracks in all! CD

Gladys Knight & The PipsEssential Gladys Knight & The Pips 1961 to 1965 ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99 21.99
If you only know Gladys Knight from her Motown classics, or her big hits of the early 70s, you'll find a huge amount to discover here – because right from the start, the lady and her group were really something special! The idea of a male/female vocal group was a bit unique in the early 60s – not completely uncommon, but never handled with the perfection of Gladys Knight & The Pips – as the mixture of Knight's richly soulful lead and the harmonies of the trio of male singers was incredible – captured very strongly by Harlem producer Bobby Robinson, with singles that appeared on his own Fire/Fury label, and Vee Jay as well! There have been other sets that bring together work from this time, but this might be the most complete we've ever seen – 40 tracks in all, with a few alternates, and a few solo tracks by The Pips as well – titles that include "Operator", "Come See About Me", "Go Away Stay Away", "Who Knows", "Walking In Circles", "Jungle Love", "Linda", "Darling", "One More Lonely Night", "Every Beat Of My Heart", "Room In Your Heart", "It Hurts So Bad", "Letter Full Of Tears", "The Devil In Me", "Daybreak", "Lovers Always Forgive", and "How Do You Say Goodbye".

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsNeither One Of Us ... LP
SOUL, 1973. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A key moment in the career of Gladys Knight & The Pips – and a record that opens the group up to a whole new sound for the 70s! When Gladys Knight started out as a raw R&B-ish singer in the early 60s, nobody would have expected her to have such staying power – and to become one of the 70s best interpreters of mellow ballads. This album's more than proof that Knight had plenty of staying power, and the title hit "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)" went onto become one of the decade's biggest mellow soul tracks. It's backed up here by a number of nice tracks that have a harder soul sound, and which are arranged by some of Motown's best talents of the early 70s. Titles include "It's Gotta Be That Way", "This Child Needs Its Father", "And This Is Love", "Don't It Make You Feel Guilty", and a cover of "Who Is She To You". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the embossed cover, with light wear and a razor mark down the back.)

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsThat Special Time Of Year ... LP
Columbia, 1982. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Although recorded a bit later than some of Gladys Knight's better-known Holiday work, this album's actually our favorite of the bunch – because it's got a looser, more soul-based feel that gets beyond some of the overdone modes of earlier Christmas work! Gladys is clearly trying to get more Christmas play on the radio with this one – and avoids the serious modes of earlier Holiday records by going for straightforward tunes that have a nicely modern soul approach to the arrangements. Backings are done by Gene Page, McKinley Jackson, and Larry Farrow – and a few tunes feature duets with Shanga or Johnny Mathis. Titles include "This Christmas", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", "Jingle Bells", "That Special Time Of Year", "When A Child Is Born", "I Believe", and "It's The Happiest Time Of Year".

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsVisions ... CD
Columbia/Superbird (UK), 1983. Used ... $8.99
Sweet 80s groove from Gladys Knight & The Pips – just the kind of record that shows why the group kept going strong for so many years! The classic approach is still very firmly intact – Gladys' wonderful lead, soaring out over the Pips' warm harmonies – a vocal power that so many other groups could never get this right – evolved amazingly here from the early soul years of the group's origins. The approach of the set is lean and smooth, yet turns out to be a perfect fit for the maturing Knight/Pips sound – a mode that still keeps them right out in front of the pack, with a great mix of grooving and sophistication. Titles include "Save The Overtime (For Me)", "Heaven Sent", "When You're Far Away", "Just Be My Lover", "Don't Make Me Run Away", "Ain't No Greater Love", "O La De Da", "You're Number One", and the longstanding classic "Hero (Wind Beneath My Wings)".

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsBless This House ... LP
Buddah, 1975. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A relatively ambitious Christmas album from Gladys Knight & The Pips – done in a rich style that's clearly meant to be more seriously reverent of the Holiday than their usual soul hits of the time! The best numbers here are the ones that are the most laidback – letting the group drift through old favorites without the overblown style that mars a few of the other tunes. Titles include "Silent Night", "Bless This House", "Away In A Manger", "Ave Maria", "Do You Hear What I Hear", a "Gospel Medley", and a strange spoken version of "The Night Before Christmas".

✨✧ MonitorsSay You – The Motown Anthology 1963 to 1968 (Greetings! We're The Monitors plus previously unissued material and B-Sides) ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
A real lost gem from Motown – and a whole lot more! Greetings! We're The Monitors is the only full album ever cut by The Monitors – a 3-man, 1-woman vocal group who were in a popular Motown mixed harmonies mode. The quartet had a wonderfully strong vocal presence – blasting away at most tracks with a strength that groups like The Miracles or Gladys Knight & The Pips could never match – and like those groups, they bridge that key period between late doo wop-oriented harmonies, and tighter 60s group soul. The LP brings together singles the Monitors cut for Motown during the previous few years, but it also works extremely well as a unified album – and it's a refreshing change from some of the oft-heard Motown material. Titles include "Greetings (This Is Uncle Sam)", "Number One In Your Heart", "Bring Back The Love", "Step By Step (Hand In Hand)", and "Baby Make Your Own Sweet Music". This incredible anthologogy from Kent starts off with that album and includes 12 unissued tracks – a whole album's worth – plus 2 B-Sides. Unissued tracks include "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby" , "The Letter", "Poor Side Of Town", "Anything", "Guilty" and more. 26 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ War/Curtis Mayfield/Kool & The GangFirst Annual Benefit Concert For The Congressional Black Caucus ... LP
Chess, 1974. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A killer moment in 70s soul – but kind of a lost gem, too – given that the album was issued by Chess Records, but features a number of big names who mostly recorded for other companies! The live performance was recorded at the first annual benefit for the Black Congressional Caucus – and the tunes have the right sort of righteous energy to match the important political event – really special performances that include a searing 9 minute version of "Wild & Peaceful" by Kool & The Gang, super-heavy versions of "Give Me Your Love" by Curtis Mayfield and the Mayfield-penned "On & On" by Gladys Knight & The Pips. War follows up with a smoking Hammond-heavy take on "Gypsy Man" – and even Jimmy Witherspoon sounds pretty darn great on a take of his classic "Goin Down Slow". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLove Saves the Day – A History Of American Dance Music Culture 1970 to 1979 ... CD
Reappearing (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
A great little collection of unusual grooves – put together by author/dancefloor historian Tim Lawrence, and very much in the same spirit as his groundbreaking book of the same title! As with some of Lawrence's best work, the collection goes way past the obvious, and starts the clock at a time long before the disco years – really showing the variety of unusual rhythmic contributions that were bubbling under before breaking into the mainstream. Titles on the 2CD set include "Hum Along & Dance (uncut version)" by Jackson 5, "Land Of Make Believe" by Chuck Mangione, "Dibwe Diambula Kabanda" by Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin, "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose" by James Brown, "It's Time To Go Now" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "We All Need Love (12" version)" by Domenic Troiano, "Don't Knock My Love (parts 1 & 2)" by Wilson Pickett, "Welcome To The Club" by Blue Magic, "Above & Beyond (12" version)" by Edgar Winter, "New York City" by Miroslav Vitous, "Fancy Dancer (12" version)" by Twennynine with Lenny White, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Leaving This Planet" by Charles Earland, "Prophecy" by Margie Joseph, "I Can't Fight Your Love" by The Modulations, and "If You Want To Try Love Again Remember Me" by Laura Lee".

VariousMen In The Glass Booth – Groundbreaking Re-edits & Remixes By The Disco Era's Most Influential DJs (3CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $34.99 36.99
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. 3CD set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney, "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

Motown, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just a "cellarful" of Motown – a wealth of great tracks, all of which are previously unreleased! This incredible 2CD set is a landmark in the history of both Motown and Northern Soul – as it brings together 40 tracks that were recorded in the glory days of the Detroit scene, but never issued at the time. A number of cuts on the set have risen to fame over the years as bootlegs floating around the UK club scene, and they're issued properly here for the first time ever, along side other lost gems that will soon become new classics to a generation of soul fans – all wrapped up in one great package filled with notes on the music, and listing the origins of the tunes! Titles include "My Sugar Baby" by Frank Wilson, "Baby A Go Go" by Barbara McNair, "How Can I" by Brenda Holloway, "He Was Really Sayin Somethin" by Earl Van Dyke, "Until You Came Along" by Carolyn Crawford, "Before It's Over" by Sammy Ward, "Long Gone Lover" by Velvelettes, "If You Ever Get Your Hands On Me" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Lucky Lucky Me" by Jimmy Ruffin, "I Wish I Liked You" by Marvin Gaye, "You Made Me Feel Like" by Syreeta, "Don't Let Me Down" by Kim Weston, "Don't Put Off Till Tomorrow What You Can Do Today" by The Monitors, and "It Must Be Love Baby" by Chuck Jackson & Yvonne Fair.

Motown (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing return to form for this legendary collection – filled with never-heard numbers, pulled from the 60s and 70s vaults of Motown Records! Even if you think you've got plenty of Motown in your collection already, you'll find plenty more here to love – totally fresh tracks by some of the label's biggest artists, plus some other gems by lesser-known stars – all of which have all the punch, power, and sparkle of classic Motown at its best! The 2CD set is brimming over with greatness – and we're honestly stunned that they can still come up with so many unreleased gems, even after three previous volumes in the collection. Titles include "Kidnapped" by The Blackberries, "Keep On Tryin" by The Fantastic Four, "My Baby Moves Me" by Brenda Holloway, "Your Kiss Kiss" by Marvin Gaye & Oma Heard, "Miss Lonely Heart" by The Vandellas, "You Gave Me Love To Live For" by Debbie Dean, "Head Over Heels In Love With You Baby" by The Spinners, "I'd Cry" by Chuck Jackson, "Twin Brother" by Eddie Holland, "Daddy Cool" by Oma Heard, "Three Time Loser" by Marvin Gaye, "The Girl I've Chosen To Be My Bride" by Joe Stubbs, "A Bird In The Hand" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Somebody's Waiting For Me" by The Contours, "Only A Lonely Man Would Know" by Ivy Joe Hunter, "The House That Jack Built" by JJ Barnes, "The Philly Dog" by Earl Van Dyke, and "Why Don't You Come Home" by Stevie Wonder.

✨✧ VariousThis Is Northern Soul – The Motown Sound Vol 1 ... CD
Motown (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A motherlode of Northern Soul work – all compiled by Dave Godin, the man who first coined the name for the genre! As you'll guess by the title, all the tracks on the set are from the Motown label – no surprise, as the Detroit powerhouse was a huge influence on the British scene of the 60s, thanks to a lot of help from Godin, whose work really allowed Motown to gain a foothold in the UK. The groove here is all uptempo, all driving – that jumpy approach to soul music that always played big on the Northern dancefloors – and the 2CD brings together all of the 48 tracks that were previously issued on 2 individual volumes. Titles include "Do I Love You" by Frank Wilson, "Keep On Lovin Me" by Frances Nero, "Goodbye Cruel World" by Linda Griner, "Share A Little Love With Me" by The Monitors, "This Love Starved Heart Of Mine" by Marvin Gaye, "You Hit Me" by Kim Weston, "Just Walk In My Shoes" by Gladys Knight & the Pips, "What More Could A Boy Ask For" by The Spinners, "Goodnight Irene" by The Originals, "When I'm Gone" by Brenda Holloway, "Nightmare" by Andantes, "Just A Little Misunderstanding" by The Contours, "I'll Always Love You" by The Spinners, "I Gotta Let You Go" by Jimmy Ruffin, "Lonely Lonely Girl Am I" by The Velvelettes, "Just Ain't Enough Love" by Eddie Holland, "Suspicion" by The Originals, "My Weakness Is You" by Jr Walker, "Lonely Lover" by The Four Tops, "My Smile Is Just A Frown Turned Upside Down" by Carolyn Crawford, "Two Can Have A Party" by Tammi Terrell, "Baby Hit & Run" by The Contours, "When I Feel The Need" by Marvin Gaye, "I Gotta Let You Go" by Jimmy Ruffin, and "Baby Come Home to Me" by Shorty Long.

VariousBaby I've Got It – More Motown Girls – More Rare Treats From Motown's Female Roster, Including 16 Previously Unissued Gems ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
A stunning selection of female soul from Motown – all of it rare, and much of it previously unreleased! The set is a great reminder not only of how much we still have to learn about the biggest soul label in the motor city – but also of the exceptional quality that Motown brought to their recordings – so much so that even long-unissued tracks like these can easily stand with the biggest hits from other 60s soul labels! The package is wonderful if you dig female soul – and maybe even if you just like vintage soul in general – and in addition to rare cuts by big Motown names, you'll also hear some lesser-knowns that show the way the company was always trying to reach out for new talent in the fertile world of Detroit music. As usual, Ace has provided very detailed notes that offer as much history as information on the music – and the CD features 24 titles that include "It's Been A Long Time Happenin" by Rita Wright, "There Are Things" by Ann Bogan, "It's Crazy Baby" by Liz Lands, "Baby I've Got It" by Brenda Holloway, "Honey Don't Leave Me" by The Lewis Sisters, "It's All Right" by LaBrenda Ben, "When Someone's Good To You" by Oma Page, "In My Heart I Know It's Right" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Sweet Talkin Guy" by The Marvelettes, "Cookie Boy" by Thelma Brown, "I Up & Think Of You" by Kim Weston, "There Was" by The Lollipops, "Keep Away" by Little Lisa, "Playboy (first version)" by The Marvelettes, "I Know You Don't Love Me No More (orig mix)" by Yvonne Fair, "In Your Heart" by Patrice Holloway, "You've Got Possibilities" by Barbara McNair, and "Bad News" by LaBrenda Ben.

Female Motown, way past the hits – a wonderful selection of rare cuts from the 60s, including a dozen previously unissued tracks! The collection is a real discovery, even for Motown fans – and the set is filled with gems that go way past the obvious – some real Detroit soul treasures that make the whole thing a delight! Lots of the work is from that key early Motown stretch, when the label was really coming into its own, but still trying out a lot of new ideas too – and as such, were really willing to move past some obvious hit modes of the time. And make no mistake – these cuts aren't leftovers, or half-baked – as all of them have top-shelf production and arrangements – further proof that the Motown approach never dimmed at all. Titles include "Do You Know What I'm Talkin About" by LaBrenda Ben, "Don't Turn Your Back On Me" by Brenda Holloway, "Build Him Up" by Martha & The Vandellas, "Like A Nightmare" by The Andantes, "Dance Yeah Dance" by Thelma Brown, "When Somebody Loves You" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "My Black Belt" by Hattie Littles, "It's Too Soon To Know" by Kim Weston, "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues" by Liz Lands, "If Wishes Came True" by Anita Knorl, and "So Let Them Laugh At Me" by Linda Griner.

A sweet overview of the Van McCoy songbook from the early 60s to early 70s – and a stellar compilation from Ace Records – a label that's gone above and beyond in its efforts to shine a light on the songwriters and producers behind some of most moving songs of the era! The breadth ofMcCoy's talent is pretty amazing, all the more so given his huge disco era hit "The Hustle", a world away from the soaringly emotional soul songs he penned for top shelf singers like Betty Everett, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Nancy Wilson, Donny Hathaway, Erma Franklin, Jerry Butler and more – many of the best of which are compiled here! 24 tracks in all: "I Got The Sweetest Feeling" by Erma Franklin, "Getting Mighty Crowded" by Betty Everett, "Baby I'm Yours" by Barbara Lewis, "Sotp And Get A Hold Of Myself" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "So Soon" by Aretha Franklin, "Giving Up" by Donny Hathaway, "Nothing Worse Than Being Alone" by The Ad Libs, "I've Lost You" by Jackie Wilson and many more.

✨✧ ElginsMotown Anthology ... CD
Motown (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue look at this near-forgotten Motown group from the 60s – a male/female quartet who only recorded for the label for a handful of years, but who managed to leave behind a brilliant batch of music! The Elgins have an approach that puts female vocalist Saundra Edwards in the lead, with support from three male singers – a style that's a bit like that of Gladys Knight & The Pips, but which comes off quite differently here – often with a bit more sweetness, and a more wrapped-together quality that often has all four members harmonizing together on a near-equal scale. Although the group never earned big space on the charts, they did record a fair bit of work for Motown – much of it previously unissued, but finally making its appearance here. A number of tracks on the 2CD set are by The Downbeats, a previous incarnation of the group – and the 2CD package features 50 tracks in all, a full set of notes, and finally presents a complete portrait of The Elgins! Titles include "In The Midnight Hour", "Heaven Must Have Sent You", "No Time For Tears", "Put Yourself In My Place", "It's Gonna Be Hard Times", "Love Is The Answer", "I Still Love You", "Life Can Be Beautiful When You're In Love", "My Love For Your Love", "Love Where Are You Hiding", "Request Of A Fool", "Lonely Boy", "I Feel So Fine", "It's Gonna Be Hard Times", "Camel Walk", "I Understand My Man", "Stay In My Lonely Arms", "Let The Groove Roll On", "Until I Lost You", and "Boo Hoo".

✨✧ VariousAshford & Simpson Songbook ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ashford & Simpson recorded plenty of great work on their own, but they were also a tremendous pair of songwriters – and had a way of penning can't-miss work that sounded great in just about anyone's hands! This collection is great testament to that fact – as it starts with gems the duo first wrote back in their early Motown days, then quickly moves up to their late 70s fame, and the way they had a major impact on the dancefloor. The tracks here are often quite familiar, but the actual recordings are sometimes obscure – lesser-known takes on some of Ashford & Simpson's best numbers, laid out back to back as proof of their genius talent for a groovy soul tune. Titles include "Top Of The Stairs" by Collins & Collins, "Keep It Coming" by Tata Vega, "Rough Times" by Angela Bofill, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, "Bourgie Bourgie" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Have You Ever Tried It" by The Main Ingredient, "I Wouldn't Change The Man He Is" by Blinky, "It's In There" by Jennifer Holiday, "Clouds" by Chaka Khan, "Over & Over" by Sylvester, "Hit & Run Lover" by The Dynamic Superiors, "The Boss (ext club)" by Diana Ross, "Is It Still Good To Ya" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Keep It Coming" by Tata Vega, and "Keep Away Girls" by Stephanie Mills.
