Amazing stuff – and way more than a rehash of the legendary Wheedle's Groove compilation! Instead, the set is kind of a "back to the roots" collection – one that presents 10 vintage 45 singles, reproduced with label artwork and everything – all packaged in a beautiful box with a magnetic flip-top lid – and containing a 96 page booklet with new liner notes, interviews, rare photos, a trading card, and lots more archival goodies! Plus, there's also a CD of a lost Robbie Hill's Family session from 1975 – and a bonus download card for all the songs in the set. And so far, we haven't even told you about the music – a killer collection of rare funk and soul from the Seattle scene – rare singles that originally appeared on the Camelot, Sepia, Jerden, Topaz, and Decimal labels. Titles include "Deep Soul (parts 1 & 2)" by Ron Buford & Ural Thomas, "I Let A Good Man Go" b/w "Little Love Affair" by Patrinell Staten, "Brighter Tomorrow" b/w "Ca Ba Dab" by Soul Swingers, "Peace Dance" b/w "Undecided Woman" by Woody Carr, "This Is Me" b/w "The Song I Sing" by Cookin Bag, "Grooving Is Easy" b/w "Poor Fool" by Stringfello, "You & Me" b/w "My Funky Feeling" by Acapulco Gold, "I Wonder Love" b/w "I Wanna Love You" by Seattle Pure Dynamite, "Holding On" b/w "Oh Girl" by Unfinished Business, and "Love In Your Life" b/w "Look At Me" by Priceless. (Limited edition release for Black Friday, 2011. 2000 hand-numbered copies.) ~ Dusty Groove
