The City of Brotherly Love is heavily represented in this compilation with acts such as The Toppiks with both sides of their desirable Larsam 45 “Give It A Chance To Grow/Surrender” and their previously unissued track “Win All Your Love” a recent release on a Soul Junction 45 (SJ1009) as the flip to The Cooperettes version of the same song, a double dose of Philly soul heaven.

One side of Bobby Banks solitary Gil label release “Read It And Weep” is followed by Music Machines unissued sweet soul gem “Imitation Of Life”, originally recorded as the flipside to their Red Coach label outing “By The Hair On My Chinny Chin Chin” then inexplicably dropped in favour of an instrumental version of “Chinny Chin Chin”!

 The sound of Philadelphia continues through The Delagates Of Soul’s emotionally charged “Lucky Guy I Am”, The Four Thoughts “Plain As The Nose”, The Coalitions “Nothin’ Left 2 Do” and the all girl group The Jonesetts Cougar records double sider “Once I Had A Love/Stop Look Listen” With older sister Karin Jones later going on to record the respected solo album “Under The Influence Of Love” (Handshake Records).

Another great compilation, hard to keep up with so many great releases this year! Really enjoying this cd over the last few weeks and the usual top quality notes & pics.

I’ve completely lost myself in the prev unreleased Robert Montgomery track on more than one occasion, especially towards the end with the gorgeous backing harmonies flowing alongside Robert’s lead vocal. The Delegates of Soul track is so good and I regret not buying the 45 a few years ago when I had the chance at much cheaper price than I expect it would cost now. Great to have both sides of The Scott Three on cd too for quality audio (how young were those guys at the time?!) + loads more make this well worth buying. Cheers! :thumbsup:

Many thanks for your comments Steve, initial sales are going really well a lot of people will find a little surprise amongst their perennial gift of new socks and those bloody awful Ferrero Rocher this year !
