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).
