✨✧ VariousHot Day In Harlem – The Soul Of The City 1970 to 1979 ... CD
All Platinum/Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funk, soul, and plenty more too – a massive batch of work from the legendary All Platinum label – the pre-hip hop chapter of the Sugar Hill Records scene! The work here nicely runs the gamut – as the set features lots of the great funk you'd find on All Platinum 45s, mixed with some warmer soul tunes, and even a few ballads too! We love the label (and all it's related imprints) to death – and it's been years since anyone's brought out so many gems like this from the New Jersey powerhouse of soul. And even though the title is oddly misleading – this isn't really a Harlem collection at all – we love the results of the whole thing – a smashing array of 70s soul cuts that includes "Ton Of Dynamite" by Frankie Crocker, "Beautiful Summer Day" by Mother Freedom Band, "Stand In For Love" by Pandella Kelly, "Home" by Gloria Barnes, "3 Minutes 2 Hey Girl" by George Kerr, "Hot Day In Harlem" by Rimshots, "Chance With You" by Brother To Brother, "She Comes Up" by Storm, "Too Sweet To Be Lonely" by The Internationals, "Young Bird" by Soul Generation, and "The Prime Of Love" by BBP.

Round RobinRound Robin & Brimstone (180 gram pressing) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Platinum City/Luv N' Haight, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
An obscure set of clubby soul from the Dallas scene – led by the mysterious Round Robin on vocals and percussion! The group hit the speed of some of the disco dancefloor work of the time, but have a lean style that focuses much more on their surprisingly sharp instrumentation – which features some stunning work on bass, and a wonderfully tight sound from the group as a whole! One of the highlights is the very long groover "Our Love Is So True" – and other titles include "You Can't Do It", "Plenty Good Lovin", "Love", "I Wanna Live With You", and "One Night Love Affair". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl pressing in a tip-on heavyweight sleeve and with download!)

✨✧ WarPlatinum Jazz ... LP
Blue Note, 1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sweet jazzy work from War – a record that has them stretching things out a bit from before, and finding new ways to groove for the second half of the 70s! All the core elements are still firmly in place – that sublime blend of jazz, soul, funk, and Latin elements – but there's a slight shift in the presentation, with maybe just a touch more of the jazz promised in the title – which might have to do with the album's initial placement as a Blue Note Records title! The first half of the record features all new material, showcasing this slight shift in the group's sound – and a mode that's nicely free of any hits – and the second half of the set brings back some key jazzy tracks from earlier records, which fit perfectly into place. Titles include "War Is Coming", "I Got You", "LA Sunshine", "Platinum Jazz", "Slowly We Walk Together", "River Niger", "H2Overture", "City Country City", "Four Cornered Room", and "Deliver The Word". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy Briscoe & The Little BeaversMy Ebony Princess ... CD
Pi Kappa/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An east coast harmony classic from Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers – a sweetly-voiced young soul group with a really positive sound! Jimmy and the group have a groove that's more mature than some of the other young soul acts to emerge in the wake of the Jackson Five – and the tracks on the set are a great balance of gentle ballads and more forceful numbers, done in modes that share a lot with some of the best New Jersey groups of the time, particularly those on the All-Platinum label. Production is full and rich – never too much so overpower the vocals, but with some wonderfully chosen instrumental touches from maestro Paul Kyser – but it's Jimmy's heartbreaking vocals that really drive the set. Titles include "My Ebony Princess", "I Only Feel This Way When I'm With You", "Theme From Forever", "Where Were You", "Pack Up", "My Fallen Angel", "Together", and "Country to the City". CD
