O'JaysBack Stabbers ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1972. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A landmark album for the O'Jays – a set that moved them from the indie ranks to 70s megasoulstatus! After years of bumping around on a variety of labels, and in a variety of styles, the group really exploded with this wonderful set – an album that has them soaring along in the righteous Philly groove of the early 70s – a sound that turned out to be a perfect foil for the trio's sublime, yet earthy harmonies. Arrangements are by some fo the best of the core Philly scene – Thom Bell, Norman Harris, Ronnie Baker, and Bobby Martin – and the album's overflowing with great tunes that completely redefine the sound of group soul in the 70s! Includes megahits "Back Stabbers" and "Love Train" – plus "Shiftless, Shady, Jealous Kind of People", "When The World's At Peace", "Time To Get Down", "Who Am I" and more! CD

For the most part, the move the classic songs into their own grown folks soul mode, with a solid Eddie Levert original as a centerpiece in "I'm What You Want For Christmas". Other tracks include "The First Noel", "Joy To The World", "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night", "'Cause It's Christmas" and more. 10 tracks in all. CD

O'JaysO'Jays (Bell pressing) ... LP
Bell, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
This is the second version of an album that was first pressed under the title Back On Top – repackaged here with a slicker cover during the early 70s, to cash in on the fame that the O'Jays were having at Phily International. Although the group's Philly recordings are always touted as some of their best work, we love this early material produced by George Kerr – with a sound that's very similar to classic New Jersey groups like The Moments and The Whatnauts (and which also features a few songs that were covered by those groups, too). The band have heavenly harmonies that are more fragile than on their tightly-sewn Gamble/Huff work, with some elements of the deeper soul that was on some of their earlier recordings. For some reason, the album links together the tracks with a fake "audience" sound, as if it's a live album – which it really isn't. We can forgive the producers at Bell for that, though – because the tracks are so great! Includes the single "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow", plus "I'm So Glad I Found You", "Look Over Your Shoulder", "Going Going Gone", and "I Dig Your Act". LP, Vinyl record album

O'JaysShip Ahoy (expanded version – with bonus track) ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1973. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A pivotal album from The O'Jays – and an undeniable Philly classic! The record was the third the group cut for the Philadelphia International label – but it was really the first one that pushed their strong righteous soul agenda, sort of a mix of message-oriented lyrics and heavy soul (ala The Temptations), fused with the warmer more sophisticated styles of the Philly sound! The blend is perfect – and has a way of getting the message from the underground right into the living room – and a bit onto the charts as well! From the image on the cover – which features the group in a slave ship setting – to politics of tracks like "Don't Call Me Brother", "For The Love Of Money", "Put Your Hands Together", and "This Air That I Breathe", the record's an extremely unified effort – kind of to the O'Jays what What's Going On was to Marvin Gaye. Other titles include "You Got Your Hooks In Me", "Now That We Found Love", and "People Keep Tellin Me". Includes bonus track "Put Your Hands Together" – recorded live in London. CD

O'Jays & The MomentsO'Jays Meet The Moments ... LP
Stang, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Hard funky soul album that features half Moments tracks and half O'Jays tracks. The O'Jays stuff is the stuff that they recorded before going to Philly International, like "Peace" and "Be My Girl" – real sweet soul gems, if you don't know them. Our fave, though, is the monster track "Ride You Pony Girl", a great rolling funky cut by the Moments, with cool piano triplets on the intro! Very nice, with a very dope sound!

A great sense of righteousness and groove – the key mix that made the O'Jays so great back in the day – and which really helped put the Philly International enterprise on the map! The album's miles from the group's simple harmony soul roots – even though those were pretty darn great – and it blends together soaring backings with a sweet Gamble/Huff finish, and really makes some magic in the way the whole thing comes off.

Proof that the O'Jays fire can never die – because even though the instrumentation is slightly dated at times, this set sill has the group shining strongly on the vocal tip – hitting some great harmonies on the mellow cuts, and stepping out boldly on the more upbeat ones. Things are very much still in the Philly family here – with production by Thom Bell, Eddie Levert, and Gamble & Huff – and titles include "Lovin You", "Undercover Lover", "Cause I Want You Back Again", "Don't Take Your Love Away", "Let Me Touch You", "No Lies To Cloud My Eyes", "Don't Let The Dream Get Away", and "I Just Want Somebody To Love Me".

✨✧ O'JaysO'Jays Live In London ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal album in the development of Philadelphia International – who seemed to be taking a cue from Motown and Stax in the 60s, by bringing their biggest act to a European audience! The set features the O'Jays working as beautifully in a live setting as they had in the Sigma Sound studios – singing to arrangements by Dennis Williams, but still getting enough production by Bobby Martin to keep the sound in line with their better known studio work from the time. There's a bit of a deeper soul sound overall here – especially on the vocals, which crackle nicely with a live sense of spontaneity. Titles include "Back Stabbers", "Sunshine", "Love Train", "When The World Is A Peace", and "Put Your Hands Together" – plus a few vocal introductions! CD

✨✧ O'JaysSuper Bad (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Little Star/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Earlier work by The O'Jays – but issued in a super-pimp cover that has a image of all these hot chicks with guns, standing in a very blacksploitation pose! Clearly, this was an issue that was put on the markets to cash in on the group's early 70s fame on Philly International – but the record contains mostly material from the late 60s early 70s indie years, most issued as singles, with production by Bobby Massey and HB Barnum. The work's actually pretty great, despite the cheap trick of the cover – and the album includes lots of nice numbers like "Little Brother", "Now He's Home", "Gotta Get My Broom Out", "Never Gonna Say Goodbye", and "Peace".

✨✧ O'JaysSurvival/Family Reunion (SACD multi-channel disc) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Vocalion (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two Philly classics from the O'Jays – back to back on a single CD! Survival is filled with heady sounds from The O'Jays – a set that continues the more righteous side of the style they developed on early 70s Philadelphia International – a great mix of modes that sometimes has the trio sharing some of the political spirit of The Temptations with Norman Whitfield, and sometimes has the group really shining on the kind of heartbreaking ballads that are perfect for the maturing harmony style they were hitting – a mode that was light years past the group's sound just a few years before! The message cuts are mostly upbeat and grooving, and are balanced nicely with the ballads – on titles that include "Survival", "Let Me Make Love To You", "What Am I Waiting For", "Give The People What They Want", "Rich Get Richer", and "Never Break Us Up". Family Reunion is a record with a great sense of righteousness and groove – the key mix that made the O'Jays so great back in the day – and which really helped put the Philly International enterprise on the map! The album's miles from the group's simple harmony soul roots – even though those were pretty darn great – and it blends together soaring backings with a sweet Gamble/Huff finish, and really makes some magic in the way the whole thing comes off. Titles include the great mellow ballad "Stairway To Heaven", the party groovers "Livin For The Weekend" and "I Love Music" – and the cuts "Unity", "You & Me", and "She's Only A Woman". CD

Barrino BrothersLivin' High Off The Goodness Of Your Love (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The only album ever by The Barrino Brothers – a stellar early 70s harmony group, and one who could sing with the best of the east coast scene of the time! The whole set's got a feel that's very much in the best mode of groups like The Modulations, Soul Generation, and even The O'Jays – as the group's got a deeper, more solid sound than some of the more fragile outfits of their era. Production is very strong – thanks to the Holland-Dozier-Holland powerhouse sound of the time – and the group's vocals are supported on a full groove that really helps send the whole thing over the top! The title cut "Livin High Off The Goodness Of Your Love" is a stone classic – and other nice tracks include "Rain", "I Had it All", and "It Doesn't Have to Be That Way". LP, Vinyl record album

A nicely grooving soul album from Love Committee – who are probably best known for their earlier disco songs, but we really dig this 1980 self-titled album for the mellower numbers – the best of which have a smooth midtempo groove that's as tasty as ever! A few of the numbers were co-written by Eddie Levert of The O'Jays, an indication of the style LC were going for, and they hit it nicely! Titles include "Love People Theme", "Ain't It a Shame", "You Are the One for Me","Boogie Papers", "Who Can We Trust", "I Wanna Make Love to You", and "I Made A Mistake". This Vinyl Masterpiece edition has 2 bonus tracks: longer versions of "I Made A Mistake" and "Boogie Papers". CD

Titles include their hits "No Peace No Love" and "For The Love Of Money" – the latter of which is not a cover of the O'Jays song, but instead their own great groover – plus "Take It Easy", "Rock To The Music", "Home Is Home", and "My Luck Will Shine".

VariousGI Disco – The History Of The Cold War's Hottest 80's Club Music In West Germany ... CD
BBE (UK), 1980s. New Copy ... $8.99 19.99
Dancefloor soul, club funk and thumping grooves from the post disco 80s – selected by Karsten Grossmann, aka Kalle Kuts, and Daniel W Best as GI Disco – benchmark US grooves that made waves in West Germany in the cold war 80s! The post disco, boogie, and cosmic groovers of stateside soul scenes was brought in to the clubs for GIs stationed in West Berlin and other parts of Western Germany, as well as being played on the Armed Forces Network radio, enough to mightily influence the club scenes of West Berlin, Munich and other cities. This great compilation for BBE provides a solid snapshot of time and place, but more than that, it's great little set of club friendly jams from the electronic embellished 80s soul scene – with tracks by Timex Social Club, Barbara Mason, Fonda Rae, BB & Q Band and more. 12 tracks on the CD version: "Rumours" by Timex Social Club, "IOU" by Freez, "Another Man" by Barbara Mason, "Spend The Night" by The Cool Notes, "Touch Me" by Wish feat Fonda Rae, "Money's Too Tight To Mention" by Valentine Brothers, "100%" by Caprice and "Riccochet" by BB & Q Band, "Put Our Heads Together" by The O' Jays, "Falling In Love" by Surface and more.

✨✧ Harold Melvin & The Blue NotesBe For Real – The PIR Recordings 1972 to 1975 (I Miss You/Black & Blue/To Be True/Wake Up Everybody/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Soulmusic.com (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection – four classic Philly International albums from this legendary group – plus a CD of bonus material too! First up is I Miss You – a groundbreaking record that forever changed the course for male soul music in the 70s – a set that has the young Teddy Pendergrass fronting the Blue Notes with a sound that's completely sublime – a mix of rough and smooth, personal and polished – which really pushed the music forward strongly for generations! The strength of the record really comes through in these amazing long tracks that have Teddy speaking, then singing – "I Miss You" and "Be For Real" – delivering a message of mature, masculine power – very much in keeping with the new values that Philly International were putting forth. The whole album's great, though – a sophisticated soul masterpiece, with the tracks "Ebony Woman", "Yesterday I Had The Blues", and "Let It Be You". Next is Black & Blue – a killer batch of studio tracks, despite the live image of the group on the cover! The album's got a slightly more expansive feel than some of the other Teddy Pendergrass-era albums by The Blue Notes – almost a mini-symphony of soul, and one that takes arrangements from Bobby Martin, Norman Harris, and Vince Montana – and wraps the vocals up in a soaring, righteous sort of feel! The rougher, more personal Teddy Pendergrass style of I Miss You is folded a bit more into the harmonies of the rest of the group here – and the result is a powerful wave of soul that pushes The Blue Notes right to the top of the pack. The album features classics like "The Love I Lost" and "Is There A Place For Me" – plus other nice material like "Concentrate On Me", "It All Depends On You", and "I'm Weak For You". To Be True is one of the legendary classics from the Philly International years of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – a time when the group was featuring the tremendous lead vocals of the great Teddy Pendergrass! The set's a stunner all the way through – one of the best Philly mixes of smooth, professional backings and deeply personal lyrics – as Teddy soars to the top of the mix with his excellent leads, and gets excellent support from the rest of the Blue Notes on harmonies – but also steps aside to make a bit of space to introduce singer Sharon Paige on one cut, who'd have a greater role in the group in years to come. The songwriting, production, and other Sigma Studios touches are sublime – and titles include "Hope That We Can Get Together Soon", "Where Are All My Friends", "Bad Luck", "To Be True", "Nobody Could Take Your Place", and "All Because Of A Woman". On Wake Up Everybody, Teddy Pendergrass and crew get a bit more political than on earlier releases, and adopt the righteous bubbling soul groove that had put the O'Jays over the top a few years earlier – with incredible results! The title cut – "Wake Up Everybody" – would prove to be a great example of the political Philly International hit formula applied to socially conscious themes, but the record probably scored even bigger with the club crossover hit "Don't Leave Me This Way". Other tracks include "Keep On Lovin You", "Tell The World How I Feel About Cha Baby", "I'm Searching For A Love", and "You Know How To Make Me Feel So Good" – the latter two of which also feature female vocals by Sharon Paige. Bobby Martin, Norman Harris, and Ronnie Baker did the arrangements – and this was Teddy's last LP with the group. CD3 features bonus tracks – some of them nice and long – titles that include "I Miss You (live)", "Everybody's Talkin", "Bad Luck (Tom Moulton mix)", "Don't Leave Me This Way (Tom Moulton mix)", "The Love I Lost (live)", and "If You Don't Know Me By Now (live)".

Interscope, 1994. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first and only volume from Tupac's Thug Life group – with Big Syke, Macadoshis, Mopreme, The Rated R guest appearances by YNV & Nate Dogg – raw street rap with an uncommonly soulful backdrop for the time! Thug Life came out in the midst of the early 90s gangsta rap media backlash, and whether or the final track list was a result of that or not, the mix of hardcore rhymes with some more tender soul samples of The O'Jays, Curtis Mayfield and more on a few tracks give a more contemplative vibe here and there – and Tupac is at near peak charismatic flow on his turns at the mic, too. Includes "Bury Me A G" with Natasha Walker of YNV, "Don't Get It Twisted", "Pour Out A Little Liquor", "Stay True", "Under Pressure", "Street Fame", "Cradle To The Grave", "Str8 Ballin'".

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Woah! Don't get caught in the crossfire! I Roy takes on Prince Jazzbo, and luckily for us, Tubby's not taking sides, cutting mad versions and heavy dubs as the two Dee Jays trade barbs, rhymes and witty rejoinders for a battle on wax that lasted quite a few rounds! This great set by Pressure Sounds not only documents the toasting, boasting and roasting fest that the two heavyweight mic wielders laid to wax across now sought-after 45s, it showcases Striker Lee's production talents and Tubby's well known dub wizardry. For the most part, rhythms are laid down by the Aggrovators, with a couple Jo Jo Hookim produced cuts by the Revolutionaries, but it's all fantastic material, and the set has great notes giving background on the whole battle. 15 tracks in all, including "Do You Love Me?" by Johnny Clarke, "Straight To Jazzbo's Head", "Padlock", "Jazzbo Have Fe Run" and "Straight To Derrick Morgan's Head" by I Roy, "Straight To I Roy's Head" and "Gal Boy I Roy" by Prince Jazzbo, "I Roy The Chiney Commer Around" by Derrick Morgan, and "Straight To I Roy's Big Mouth" and "The Roots Of Dub" by King Tubby & The Aggrovators.

Marlon's known for his earlier work with the group Jazzhole, but on this set, he moves way ahead of that group – emerging as a bright new soul star to rival the work of D'Angelo or Maxwell!

✨✧ VariousComplete Loma Singles Vol 1 ... CD
Loma/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The first days of the legendary Loma Records – a 60s side-label at Warner Brothers, and one with a rock-solid reputation for top-shelf soul! Loma never hit the heights of Atlantic, Stax, or Motown – but the quality of the work on this collection is every bit as wonderful as the output from those labels – and maybe even more special, too – as lots of the tracks were never circulated that strongly at the time – acting a lot more like indie soul from the funky 45 underground than work from a much bigger label! This 2CD set features a massive 50 tracks from the imprint – the a and b-sides of the first 25 singles – with titles that include "The Big Jerk (parts 1 & 2)" by Clyde & The Blue Jays, "Baby Don't Look Down" by Billy Storm, "Midnight Prowl" by The Singers, "I Want To Be Loved" by The Enchanters, "Tell Her I'm Not Home" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Playboy" by Sugar N Spice, "I'm Comin Home" by The Olympics, "Hey Girl" by Lucky Carmichael, "Just One Look In Your Eyes" by Bob & Earl, "Something You Got" by Reb Foster, "Goldfinger" by Billy Storm, "Nobody's Baby" by The Apollas, "The Bells Are Ringing" by Smiley Lewis Band, "Your Search Is Over" by Walter Foster, "There's Something On Your Mind (parts 1 & 2)" by Baby Lloyd, "Oh Eddy My Baby" by Brenda Hall, "Since I Fell For You" by Dick Jensen & The Imports, and "That's What's Happening" by Kell Osborne.

✨✧ VariousPakistan – Folk & Pop Instrumentals 1966 to 1976 ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful batch of instrumental folk & pop sounds from 60s & 70s Pakistan – with more than a little bit of garage rock, surf pop, mod and beat influences – all anchored by regional folk sounds, strings and melodies! It was a fertile time in Pakistan for an influx of western styles to fuse with Middle Eastern tradition – electric guitars, sitars and woozy organs meld beautifully – making music that's groovy and fun while still feeling natural to the time and place. Includes tracks by The Panthers, The Mods, The Bugs, The Abstracts, The Fore Thoughts, The Blue Birds and more. Titles include "Malkaus" by The Panthers, "Spring Dance" by The Mods, "Aay Jays Theme" by The Aay Jays, "Pyar Ki Ik" by Nisar Bazmi, "Garba Dance" by The Mods, "The Khyber Twist" by Sohail Rana and more. Sublime sounds on Sublime Frequencies! CD

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ VariousSound Of Philadelphia Vol 1 ... LP
Philadelphia International/Sony (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little set of classic 70s Philly – an excellent collection of music that came from the groundbreaking label Philadelphia International – who forever changed the face of soul music in the 70s! There's nothing too obscure or offbeat here – and instead, the collection focuses mostly on the massive crossover tracks produced by the pair back in the day – the landmark soul that not only redefined the sound of Philly, but also the 70s as well! And while most of this material has been on the market often over the years, it's still pretty darn nice to see it all clustered together in one place. Most titles are the full-length album versions – and titles include "Let's Groove" by Archie Bell & The Drells, "Show You The Way To Go" by The Jacksons, "When Will I See You Again" by Three Degrees, "Back Stabbers" by The O'Jays, "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now" by McFadden & Whitehead, "TSOP" by MFSB, "Wake Up Everybody" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Jean Carn, "The Sweetest Pain" by Dexter Wansel, "Nights Over Egypt" by The Jones Girls, "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" by Lou Reed, "The Whole Town's Laughing At Me" by Teddy Pendergrass, "If You Don't Know Me By Now" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Me & Mrs Jones" by Billy Paul, and "Love Train" by The O'Jays.

VariousC90 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1990. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A heady dose of music from a key year in the British scene – a moment when all the changes that had taken place in pop music during the tail end of the 80s were really coming home to roost – to change the sound and style of the indie world a fair bit since the initial C86 compilation! By 1990, the beats of the Summer Of Love and the growing wave of psychedelic elements were really hitting home – mixed with all the smarter songwriting styles that had come into play, and a genre-crossing love of the groove and strong ear for catchy lyrics – modes that were never too commercial, but really showed a focus and tunefulness that the scene hadn't had at the start of the previous decade. This 3CD set is awash in key cuts from 1990 – all handled with the detailed notes and overstuffed tracklist that made the previous volumes so great – 63 tracks in all, with work by Saint Etienne, World Of Twist, Flowered Up, Manic Street Preachers, The La's, The Steamkings, The Ogdens, Mongtomery Clifts, Hey Paulette, Life With Patrick, Mousefolk, Greenhouse, Action Painting, The Charlatans, Thousand Yard Stare, Spiritualized, The Popinjays, New Fast Automatic Daffodils, Heavenly, Spacemen 3, Bark Psychosis, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, Ocean Colour Scene, and many more.

VariousStudio One DJs ... CD
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
Another great Studio One collection from the folks at Soul Jazz, this time highlighting the DeeJays! While heavyweights like Big Youth & U Roy never voiced tracks for the groundbreaking label, there's no shortage of first class toasting on this selection, and it's Studio One, so you know the rhythms are hot! Dennis Alcapone, Dillinger & Prince Jazzbo all come hard with tracks like "Power Version" & "Natty Kung Fu", and there's a few sweet numbers by less well known names like Prince Francis & Jah Jesco, plus a nice slice of history with Count Machuki's "More Scorcha". 16 burning tracks in all. CD
(Includes original slipcase.)
