ManhattansDedicated To You/For You And Yours ... CD
Carnival/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Masterpiece soul material! The Manhattans in the 60's were an amazingly precise group that managed to swing, yet still hit a totally soulful groove. This CD presents their first two albums in complete form, features 24 solid tracks, nearly all of them original compositions – and the sound is completely wonderful, a harmony soul fan's delight! Unlike other acts of this nature, too, the group never really recorded any filler – and all the tracks on the set are as great as the singles that formed the bigger hits at the time. Titles include "Follow Your Heart", "That New Girl", "Searchin For My Baby", "I Call It Love", "I Betcha", "There Goes A Fool", "Baby, I'm Sorry", "For The Very First Time", and "I Wanna Be". CD

ManhattansKiss & Say Goodbye – Best Of The Manhattans ... CD
Columbia, 1970s. Used ... $1.99 3.99
The Manhattans were one of those groups who knocked around for years in the indie soul world – cutting some fantastic material early on, but then losing direction for a number of years until they sprung forth as a huge act for Columbia during the early 70s. By that time, the band had more than polished their harmonies – coming up with an incredible style that was sweet and smooth, yet still undeniably soulful and human, especially on the ballads that were their specialty. This set of 19 tracks pulls together a rich batch of numbers from the group's work at Columbia – including "Kiss & Say Goodbye", "Goodbye Is The Saddest Word", "Don't Take Your Love", "La La La Wish Upon A Star", "Everybody Has A Dream", "I Was Made For You", and "The Day The Robin Sang To Me".

ManhattansLove Talk ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Late 70s – but The Manhattans are still sounding great! The album's got a wonderful blend of mellow harmony tracks and fuller, more upbeat Philly-styled tunes – all very much in the spirit of the group's first few albums for Columbia, and handled with a similar level of skill. The group had one of the most compelling, richest harmony styles of any 70s mainstream group – and if anything, the more they recorded, the more they made magic in the studio. Titles include "Devil In The Dark", "After You", "Love Talk", "We Tried", "That's Not Part Of The Show", "New York City", and a surprisingly palatable version of "The Way We Were/Memories".

ManhattansManhattans Sing For You & Yours – Golden Carnival Classics Part 2 (Collectables pressing) ... LP
Carnival/Collectables, 1968. Sealed ... $5.99
A heck of a great 60s soul album – one that we'd rank right up there with the best by the Impressions from the time – perfectly put together without a bit of filler! The set's the second full length set by The Manhattans – one of the few groups of their time who could really pull off such an all-original set without a lot of outside help. The tracks are all wonderfully fresh – and run from beautiful mellow harmony numbers to some harder, more fast-stomping upbeat dancefloor tunes! Titles include "I Wanna Be", "I Call It Love", "Sweet Little Girl", "I Betcha", "All I Need Is Your Love", "It's That Time Of Year", and "For The Very First Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 90s issue, still sealed, with some light wear, bent corners and faded marker.)

✨✧ ManhattansThere's No Good In Goodbye ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A stone classic from The Manhattans – still going strong long into the 70s with a classic harmony approach! The title tune sets the whole album up perfectly – and is the kind of a sad, slow ballad that the group was always perfect at – a number that grabs you with a compelling title, and follows up with a sublime lyric that holds on for the entire track! The rest of the set follows in a similar sweet ballad mode – served up with impeccable Bobby Martin production that's smooth, yet still lets the vocals come to the forefront in a classic harmony mode. Titles include "There's No Good In Goodbye", "Share My Life", "Am I Losing You", "Happiness", "You're My Life", "Goodbye Is The Saddest Word", "Everybody Has A Dream", and "Movin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ManhattansIt Feels So Good ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A real classic from The Manhattans – and just the kind of record to show why the group stayed so great after all the years! The ballads are wonderful – arguably even better than the group's indie label days – with a depth of feeling, fullness of harmonies, and magical balance between the rough and the smooth! Bobby Martin produced, using a sophisticated Philly mode, but one that's never overdone – cool and confident, but never too brash at all. A few of the groovers are a bit mellow – nicely stepping around a midtempo mode that still allows lots of vocal power – and titles include "I Kinda Miss You", "Let's Start It All Over Again", "It's You", "Mind Your Business", "Too Much For Me To Bear", and "It Just Can't Stay This Way". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light splash marks along the opening, light ring wear.)

MasqueradersEverybody Wanna Live On ... CD
Hot Buttered Soul/Stax (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Fantastic mid 70s sounds from The Masqueraders! Everybody Wanna Live On may very well be the best album ever by this sweet southern vocal group – produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, who'd always had a big hand in the group's sound. The record's got a style that reminds us of mid 70s Manhattans, but perhaps with more of an edge on some of the vocals, especially on the more uptempo tracks. Includes the great cut "Please Don't Try (To Take Me Away To The Sky)", with a nice electric piano groove and funky vocals, plus "(Call Me) The Traveling Man", "Sweet Sweetning", "Baby It's You", "Everybody Wanna Live On", and "Your Sweet Love Is A Blessing".

VariousCarnival Northern Soul ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Killer cuts from Carnival Records – a New Jersey indie from the 60s that turned out some mighty wonderful music! Carnival's possibly best known as the original home of The Manhattans, before their later fame at Columbia – but back in the mid 60s, the label was a hotbed of activity – and recorded a whole host of really great artists, most of whom are featured on this set! As you'd guess from the Northern Soul title, the package focuses on upbeat groovers from Carnival – the kind of hard-hitting soul tracks that bubbled under in the American underground in the 60s, but finally got their due later, as overseas collectors picked up on their genius. The set's overflowing with really wonderful cuts – and we'll be honest in saying that in all our years of crate digging, there's loads of numbers here we've never been able to find in good shape. Titles include "Little Miss Soul" by The Lovettes, "Wishes" by The Metrics, "I Wanna Be Your Everything" by The Pretenders, "Hey Girl" by The Topics, "Love Has Passed Me By" by Phil Terrell, "Lost Love" by Lee Williams & The Cymbals, "Please Come Back" by Harry Caldwell, "I'll Catch You On The Rebound" by Leon & The Metronomes, "Why Did She Lie" by Vick & John, "I Call It Love" by The Pretenders, "I Say Yeah" by The Pets, "My Love Is Yours Tonight" by The Turner Brothers, "Me Myself & I" by Norma Jenkins, and "Leave Me If You Want To" by Curby Goggins.

VariousSoul Spectacular – The Greatest Soul Hits Of All Time (4CD boxset) ... CD
Rhino, 1960s/1970s. Used 4 CDs ... $39.99
"The Greatest Soul Hits Of All Time" is a pretty ambitious claim for this one to make – but the 4CD set is chock-full of some of the best known soul tunes of the 60s and 70s – wrapped up in the usual Rhino Records flair for making the commonplace seem special! There's a total of 90 tracks in all on the set – and if ever you wanted a compilation that would give you the best of soul oldies radio, this is it! Titles include "My Guy" by Mary Wells, "Please Mr Postman" by The Marvelettes, "Sweet Soul Music" by Arthur Conley, "Soul Man" by Sam & Dave, "Soulful Strut" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Cowboys To Girls" by The Intruders, "We Got More Soul" by Dyke & The Blazers, "Just One Look" by Doris Troy, "The Monkey Time" by Major Lance, "Sunny" by Bobby Hebb, "Rescue Me" by Fontella Bass, "Rainy Night In Georgia" by Brook Benton, "Tell It Like It Is" by Aaron Neville, "Dark End Of The Street" by James Carr, "Groove Me" by King Floyd, "One Of A Kind Love Affair" by The Spinners, "I Want You Back" by Jackson 5, "Kiss & Say Goodbye" by The Manhattans, and lots lots more! The tunes go from about 1960 up to the mid 70s – with a bit of Motown, a bit of Atlantic soul, a bit of Chicago, and a bit of funk! CD

VariousTwisted Wheel – Brazennoise & Whitworth Street, Manchester 1963 to 1971 – The Original Sound Of Northern Soul, Popcorn & R&B ... LP
Charly (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 24.99
A great package of classic underground soul – wrapped around the story of one of the most legendary soul clubs in the UK – home to the great wave of Northern Soul enthusiasm that burst big in the 60s – plus a fair bit of hanky panky as well! This collection shows a decidedly raw side of the club's roots – American soul from the 60s, plus a fair bit of R&B as well – a groove that's rougher than you might find on other Northern Soul collections – which often tend towards some of the tighter Detroit productions of the period. The LP features 14 great tracks from back in the day – underground soul that's great, even if you don't care about the history of the legendary venue – titles that include "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke, "Searchin" by Alvin Robinson, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "At The Party" by Big Sambo, "Do The 45" by The Sharpees, "Talk To Me Baby" by Joe Haywood, "Long Time No See" by Ronnie & The Manhattans, "Twine Time" by Alvin Cash, "Omar Khayyam" by The Rubaiyats, and "A Certain Girl" by Bo Diddley.

VariousYesterday Has Gone – The Songs Of Teddy Randazzo ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Really fantastic work from Teddy Randazzo – the man who put the "up" in uptown soul during the 60s – and who went on to a fantastic legacy of really great music in a variety of different styles! Teddy was always a real cut above the usual pop songwriter – as his songs were fuller, richer, and not afraid to bring some lush aspects to the production – yet always with a way that could still groove – clearly a key step on the path towards more sophisticated soul styles that others would pick up on strongly in the 70s! These tunes have a beautiful way of balancing emotion with a need to be catchy and groovy – all while avoiding modes that would sound way too overdone in the hands of other pop talents of the time – moving past the too-emotive or too-weepy styles that dominated the record racks a few years before. Most of the tracks here are soul singles, but there's also a few jazz and rock numbers too – all supported by the usual deep detailed notes that we love from Ace Records. Titles include "You Better Go" by Derek Martin, "I'm On The Outside" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, "Or Not At All" by Jimmy Rice, "Good For A Lifetime" by Al Hibbler, "Better Use Your Head" by Mel Torme, "Rain In My Heart" by Frank Sinatra, "Can't Stop Running Away" by Timi Yuro, "A Million To One" by The Manhattans, "Think Before You Act" by Tony Orlando, "Goin Out Of My Head" by Dionne Warwick, "Hurt So Bad" by The Delfonics, "I Watched You Slowly Slip Away" by Howard Guyton, "Think Twice Before You Walk Away" by Porgy & The Monarchs, "Baby Are You Puttin Me On" by The Royalettes, and "You Don't Need A Heart" by Teddy Randazzo himself.

✨✧ Gerald AlstonGerald Alston ... LP
Motown, 1988. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant solo work from Gerald Alston – the first album issued under his own name, after a strong legacy of work with The Manhattans! Alston's vocals are wonderful here – beautifully crafted, with a sense of maturity and feeling that most of his younger soul contemporaries couldn't match – polished with the kind of class that kept The Manhattans strong well into the 80s – but updated nicely with some of the more adult soul modes of the latter part of the decade. Production is by Stan Sheppard and James Varner, who know to keep things laidback to keep Alston at his best – and titles include "Stay A Little While", "You Laid Your Love On Me", "I've Waited All Night", "Activated", "We've Only Just Begun", and "I Come Alive When I'm With You".

✨✧ VariousEnjoy Records Story ... CD
Enjoy/Fuel 2000, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Enjoy Records Story – but from the early days, when the label was a powerhouse outlet for R&B, blues, and early soul music – years before they also started cutting hip hop as well! The tracks here are all a great illustration of the keen ear of the imprint, and their strong focus on a few key acts who could really knock it out of the park – music that made Enjoy a key player at the start of the soul years of the 60s – even though some of its best artists went onto later fame at bigger labels. The collection is the best we've ever seen on Enjoy during these seminal years – and features a whopping 36 cuts that include "People Sure Act Funny" by Titus Turner, "Hoop & Holler" by Riff Ruffin, "I Believe To My Soul" by Louis Jones, "What Ya Gonna Do" by Noble Watts & June Bateman, "Get It" by Jay Dee Bryant, "Let's Do The Boston Monkey" by Les Cooper, "Don't Lie" by Sammy Taylor, "Sad Song" by The Channes, "Long Time No See" by Ronnie & The Manhattans, "Hot Potato" by The Rinky Dinks, "Ain't Nobody's Business" by Mary B, "It Hurts Me So" by Elmore James, "Soul Twist" by King Curtis, and "What Shall I Do" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

✨✧ VariousLowriders – Sweet Soul Harmony From The Golden Era ... LP
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There have been lots of Lowrider soul compilations on the market over the years – documenting the great of of mellow cuts on the LA scene of the 60s – particularly the kind that could move slow, but with a heavy groove at the bottom – perfect for chilling out in the back of a car on an endless summer night! Yet few have ever done the job as well as this collection – because in the hands of Ace/Kent Records, the music finally gets proper historical context – moved past the jargon of the East LA in crowd, and presented with great sound, and the kind of detailed notes that really get at the special qualities that made the west coast soul scene so different than the east in the 60s! The set list is superb – fantastic mellow soul tracks that are perfect, even if you don't care about this history – and the set features 14 titles that include "Someone" by The Lovers, "Here It Comes" by The Persians, "That's The Way Our Love Is" by The Radiations, "It's Not That Easy" by Reuben Bell & The Casanovas, "No Doubt About It" by The Esquires, "What Am I Going To Do" by the Houston Outlaws, "So Much In Love" by The Exceptions, "Please Say It Isn't So" by Lee Williams & The Cymbals, "Somebody Please" by The Vanguards, "Someone" by The Lovers, "Follow Your Heart" by The Manhattans, and "Settle Down" by Little Ben & The Cheers.
