O'JaysYear 2000 ... LP
TSOP/CBS, 1980. Near Mint- ... $2.99
We know what you're thinking: "These guys were best in the 70s." Hold that thought for a moment and check out this great album – because unlike a lot of their other chart-topping contemporaries from 1972 and 1973, the O'Jays actually continued to mature as a group, and managed to turn out some really fantastic material during the 80s. This album is really quite nice – and feature the band's great harmony stylings set to some beautiful modern soul arrangements, with a really sweet mellow groove throughout. With "To Prove I Love You", "The Answer's In You", "Once Is Not Enough" and "You're The Girl Of My Dreams (Sho'nuff Real)". LP, Vinyl record album

People's ChoiceBoogie Down USA ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the most successful albums cut by People's Choice during the 70s – and a record that shows them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. Yet despite the easily imagined disco that the title might indicate, the album's actually got some great soul tracks – filled with the heavy Philly soul of earlier days, stretched out a bit more professionally thanks to production help from Gamble & Huff. Frankie Brunson's great on vocals and keyboards, and the band grooves hard and tight on most of the album. Tracks include "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "Mickey D's", "Party Is A Groovy Thing", "Don't Send Me Away", and "I'm Leaving You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ StylisticsHurry Up This Way Again ... LP
TSOP, 1980. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge change from the early sound of The Stylistics – as the group have moved to Philly International, and are really shining in the light of the Gamble & Huff galaxy! The album's got a lot more grooves than before, but still offers up plenty of space for the trademark mellow ballads that made The Stylistics a genre-transforming group on the east coast scene – coming across here with those beautiful harmonies of the first few records, but also a bit more maturity, and confidence too. Titles include "I Have You You Have Me", "Found A Love You Couldn't Handle", "Hurry Up This Way Again", and "Is There Something On Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Billy Jackson & The Citizen's BandBilly Jackson & The Citizen's Band ... LP
RCA, 1976. Sealed ... $0.99
Kind of a retro-disco project – featuring new versions of older pop tunes like "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White", "Tenderly", "Old Devil Moon", and "Mister Sandman". Bernard Purdie is on drums, and both the TSOP and TSONY groups participate – giving the album a full-on 70s club type sound. Overall, the record's not a bad one – but it does always make us wonder who sets like this were recorded for: Old folks who were going to the discos and needed to hear familiar tunes? Or young folks who thought hearing old tunes like this was kind of campy and cool? LP, Vinyl record album

MFSBLove Is The Message – Best Of MFSB ... CD
Philadelphia International/Legacy, 1970s. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Groundbreaking work, and a killer piece of Philly groove! MFSB were a large conglomeration of studio players who graced some of the first big Philly hits in the 70s, and here they break out on their own in a remarkable set of pre-disco tunes that form the blueprint for the rest of the 70s dancefloor action. The set pulls tracks from most of the band's best albums of the 70s – mixing uptempo numbers with other cuts that have a surprisingly sly approach to jazzy soul. Includes the classic "TSOP", which was also the theme to Soul Train, plus a great version of "Cheaper To Keep Her", the very familiar "Love Is The Message", "Zach's Fanfare", "Freddie's Dead", "Philadelphia Freedom", "Sexy", "Poinciana", "My Mood", and "TLC". 16 cuts in all!

People's ChoiceAny Way You Wanna – The People's Choice Anthology 1971 to 1981 ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $13.99
Funky Philly soul at its finest! This is the first-ever People's Choice compilation we've seen – all the more impressive for pulling together essential recordings made for the Philadelphia International, Casablanca, TSOP, West End and Phil-LA Of Soul labels – recordings that cover an incredible decade-long run! People's Choice burst out of the gate in the early 70s with a wave of funky, electric piano flavored singles – soon catching the attention of Gamble & Huff, which helped open doors both commercially and creatively in the years that followed. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer batch of tracks from early 70s to early 80s than you'll find here – including standout early singles and album tracks, rarer B-sides and single mixes – when considered all together really showing the group in all its multi-faceted glory! 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Do It Anyway You Wanna", "I Likes To Do It", "Cold Blooded & Down-Right-Funky", "Nursery Rhymes", "My Feet Won't Move, But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Turn Me Loose", "Grunt", "Love Shop", "Asking For Trouble", "Don't Send Me Away", "A Mellow Mood", "You Ought TO Be Dancing", "If You Gonna Do It (Put Your Mind To It)" (Parts 1 & 2), "Boogie Down USA", "Soft And Tender", "A Great Truth", Tom Moulton mixes of "Opus-De-Funk" & "Do It Any Way You Wanna" and "Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)" and more!

Three DegreesStrategy – Our Tribute To Philadelphia ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $3.99 14.99
This legendary trio of singers go back to their Philly Soul roots of the 70s – and come across surprisingly well in the process! We'll be the first to admit that we were a bit wary, given the cover and length of time since the group's classic releases – but Three Degrees really step up strongly here, thanks in part to some tight core arrangements that reprise the best Philly sound of the 70s, without ever trying too hard to update the style or give things a too-contemporary twist! The arrangements aren't credited, but production is by Buzz Amato, who also works in the backing group – and the grooves have a warm blend of funky currents and strings that really fit the reworkings of "Love Train", "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Strategy", "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now", "You'll Never Find Another Love", "Me & Mr Jones", and "TSOP".

VariousSound Of Philadelphia – A Tribute To Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff Vol 1 ... CD
Society Hill/Essential, 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
A mighty tribute to the duo who put Philly soul at the top of the game in the 70s – legendary producers/writers/label owners Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff – all given their full due by a host of artists from the contemporary Philadelphia underground, including some who recorded for the pair back in the day! The set features lots of production work from Butch Ingram, in a style that's similar to his other recent projects on the Society Hill label – music that takes the older Philly soul spirit into the contemporary generation, but all without losing any of the care or class of the earlier days. Almost all the songs were written by the Gamble & Huff duo – and titles on this first volume include "Tell Love Hello" by The Mellow Moods, "Me & Mrs Jones" by People's Choice, "Hope That We Can Be Together Soon" by Jean Carne, "You're My Latest My Greatest Inspiration" by Johnny Flash, "Darlin Darlin Baby" by The Illusions, "It's Forever" by David Beasley's Fabulous Ebonys, "TSOP" by Society Hill Orchestra, and "The Love I Lost" by The Legendary Bluenotes featuring Sugarbear.

✨✧ MFSBLove Is The Message ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key moment for the Philly soul scene of the 70s – and the first album to feature the MFSB backing group as a solo act on their own! The ensemble were responsible for key sounds on countless soul singles of the time – yet also find a way to soar beautifully on their own – in a sweet instrumental groove that matches the strength of Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra, and which was definitely a key inspiration for the sound of the Salsoul Orchestra! There's definitely a bit of early disco in the mix, but the style's more uptempo east coast overall – that pre-disco groove that was going down in the clubs – with larger strings added to a core group of funky rhythm players. Gamble & Huff production make the whole thing sparkle, and arrangements are by Vince Montana, Bobby Martin, and Jack Faith – on titles that include "Love Is The Message", "Cheaper To Keep Her", "TSOP", "Zack's Fanfare", "Touch Me In The Morning", and "My One & Only Love".

✨✧ VariousSound Of Philadelphia Vol 1 ... LP
Philadelphia International/Sony (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Henry ManciniHangin Out With Henry Mancini/Theme From Z ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1970/1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of Henry Mancini gems from 70s RCA – back to back on a single CD! Hangin Out is very cool work from Henry Mancini – and one of the key 70s albums to feature the maestro himself playing an Arp! The added electric presence of the instrument really brings a lot to the usual Mancini charts here – creating some cool spacey and soulful moments you wouldn't expect, and some of those surprising Mancini funky bits that show up on records from the time! The set features a great medley of Barry White's "Love Theme" and MFSB's "TSOP"; classic soundtrack material like "The Thief Who Came to Dinner", "Theme From White Dawn", and the great sample track "Theme From The Girl From Petrovka" – plus the tracks "The Sex Symbol", "Hangin' Out", "Song For Anna", "The Stripper", "Dolce" and "The Entertainer". Theme From Z is cool Mancini work from the start of the 70s – a record that offers a nice step forward from his scoring styles of the 60s, with a slightly orchestral feel as well! The arrangements here are full, but still have a nice sort of focus – and include solos by players like Mancini on piano, Jimmy Rowles on electric calliope, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash on alto, and Art Smith on recorder. Some of the best tracks have a groovy feel that really fits the date of the record, while others have a more traditional soundtrack approach – and tunes include "Theme From Z", "Airport Love Theme", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", "A Man A Horse A Gun", "Patton Theme", and Jobim's "Love Theme From The Adventurers".

✨✧ MFSBMFSB – The Definitive Collection ... CD
Philadelphia International/Robinsongs (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Massive work from this legendary group – a studio ensemble who started out backing some of the best soul singers on the Philly scene of the 70s – but who soon got the chance to shine in the spotlight on their own! The musicians are all the cream of the crop of the city's scene – many with legacies that go back to the 60s, with work in a variety of formats – coming together here in a lineup that's tight, but never slick – sharp, but always able to open up and groove! The music here begins with instrumental tracks from the pre-disco years – music that's a huge change from the rough style of 60s soul instrumentals – and which adds in more sophisticated charts, a bit of orchestrations, and other elements – while still letting all the best soulful elements come through in the mix. The 2CD package is overflowing with gems – and titles include "Zack's Fanfare", "Sexy", "Philadelphia Freedom", "KJEE", "Brothers & Sisters", "TSOP", "Love Is The Message", "Dance With Me Tonight (12" version)", "Let's Clean UP The Ghetto", "South Philly", "Back Stabbers", "The Zip", "Lay In Low", "My Mood", "Get Down With The Philly Sound", "Family Affair", "Manhattan Skyline", "Summertime", "Let's Party Down", "Mysteries Of The World", "MFSB", "Sunnin & Funnin", "Picnic In The Park", "Freddie's Dead", "Old San Juan", "Fortune Teller", "We Got The Time", and "Tell Me Why".
