SoftonesBest Of The Softones ... CD
Avco/Amherst, Mid 70s. Used ... $9.99
A massive batch of work from The Softones – a group who cut some great indie singles back in the 70s – often with a sweet harmony sound that rivaled that of their Avco labelmates The Stylistics! Like that group, The Softones had a great way of hitting a fragile ballad – plenty of street corner echoes, but a smoother sound for the 70s too – beautifully brought up to date with some top-shelf production, but in ways that never get in the way of their wonderful vocals. The collection features a host of rare singles by the group – packaged with full details on the original releases, which were arranged by key 70s talents like Patrick Adams, Sammy Lowe, Van McCoy, Horace Ott, and others. The set features a whopping 17 tracks in all – with titles that include "Any Street", "Can't Help Falling In Love", "I'm Gonna Make The Score", "I Played The Fool", "Hey There Lonely Girl", "That Old Black Magic", "Extra Ordinary People", "My Dream", "I'm Gonna Prove It", "Sweet Dreamer", "I'm Gonna Make The Score", and "Laundromat".

SoftonesExtra-Ordinary People/Hey There Lonely Girl ... 7-inch
Avco, 1975. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Two great cuts from this oft-overlooked east coast vocal group, who, at their best moments, could rank with the best of them. This is definitely one of their best moments, and "Extra-Ordinary People" could rank with some of the Stylistics best from the time. Their cover of the Eddie Holman hit is nice, too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ VariousTurn Off The Lights – Sweet Soul Music ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s/2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice little set that delivers exactly what's promised in the title – sweet soul music from back in the day, plus a few tracks from the contemporary Philly scene! The cuts here nicely move between styles – many are the warm harmony cuts that were the calling card of Philly and New Jersey at the start of the 70s – and the rhythms here move from completely mellow to midtempo – that shift in harmony soul towards the club that was so influential from some of these artists at the time. Tracks include "Me & My Gemini" by First Class, "Carla My Love" by Softones, "Together" by Tony Strong & The Philly Soul, "Babies Having Babies" by Terry Tate, "Sure Thing" by New Birth, "Hypnotized" by Linda Jones, "My Ebony Princess" by Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers, "Special Lady" by Ray Goodman & Brown, "Natural High" by Captain Sky, "Reunited" by Johnny Ingram with Sherena Khan, "You Know How To Make Me Feel So Good" by Glenn Leonard with Jean Carne, "Didn't Anyone Ever Tell You I Love You" by Philly Devotions, "Yes I'm Ready" by Barbara Mason, "A Lover's Stand" by Norma Jenkins & The Dolls, and "Your Love Is So Doggone Good" by The Whispers.
