two incredible 70s soul cuts from the o jays get the reissue treatment for 2018. the a side contains the mighty for the love of money, a near 7 minute cautionary tale to the dangers of greed and exploitation. for the love of money. people will lie, lord, they will cheat. for the love of money. people don t care who they hurt or beat. as pertinent now as it was in the 70s if not more so considering current affairs. a much sampled record, loved by many! on the flip darlin darlin baby (sweet, tender, love), the second hit single off the o jays album message in the music, is a romantic soul serenade with that killer gamble and huff production philly s finest!
a classic slice of philadelphia funk from peoples choice, officially remastered and reissued for 2018. here we go again is a definitive, feel-good disco stomper combining a full frontal bassline, infectious keys and staccato guitar licks that effortlessly build and build throughout the track. cries of here we go again ring out at it s peak epitomising the feeling that this groove could last forever. keeping up that perpetual good time groove the b side houses the mighty jam, jam, jam (all night long). a track doused in the funk, from the rugged vocals to the addictive hooks, it ll worm it s way into your head for weeks.
yet another highly in-demand 12inch from the philadelphia international stable and an artist who s records never go out of date! this is a killer double-sided beauty with the frenetic and jazzy life on mars from his debut 1976 album on the top-side and the mellow all-time classic and soul boy anthem the sweetest pain from 1979 on the flip. two very different sides of a great artist, both of which show the level of diversity that he was capable of producing. the last legitimate release of this was back 1999 and a mint copy will currently set you back circa £50, if you can ever find one. word of warning: there are some u.s. bootlegs from 2008 that still appear to be in circulation and which are easy to spot since they use the u.s. silver p.i.r. label. we are currently getting these taken down and hopefully they ll soon be removed from the marketplace. accept no substitute! all our 12inch re-issues are licensed from the copyright owners and legally covered. no time for fakes over here!
