Get Up and Get Down! - Various Artists (Philips 1974)

Absolutely top notch collection of rare mid-'70s funk, soul and disco. The record contains some sweet northern soul like this one from Brother's Guiding Light:

It also has a sprinkling of street-tough ghetto funk like Etta James' stunning 'Out On the Street Again':

My very favourite though (and also one of John Peel's all time favourites) is this classic from Don Covay:


A1 Act One - Tom The Peeper

A2 Brothers Guiding Light - Getting Together

A3 Al Downing - I'll Be Holding You

A4 Joe Tex - Cat Got Her Tongue

A5 King Floyd - Can You Dig It?

A6 Aaron Neville - Hercules

A7 Cissy Houston - Midnite Train To Georgia

A8 Annette Snell - You Oughta Be Here With Me

B1 Whispers - A Mother For My Children

B2 Roy C - Got To Get Enough (Of Your Sweet Stuff)

B3 Etta James - Out On The Streets Again

B4 Joneses - Hey Babe (Is The Gettin' Still Good)

B5 Don Covay - It's Better To Have (And Don't Need)

B6 Ohio Players - Streakin' Cheek To Cheek

B7 Dramatics - Choosing Up On You

B8 Little Anthony & Imperials - La La La At The End

Get Up and Get Down HERE.
