The Futures – 1978 – Past, Present and The Futures

Philadelphia International Records at it’s best. A fantastic album, you have been asking me to upload for a long time. I know how much you enjoyed their rare debut 1975 album “Castles In The Sky” on Buddah Records ( I originally posted in Lost In Tyme blog ) and you can also get it in our back pages here. One of Philadelphia’s finest groups, the Futures – a cult harmony group – made great music, but Lady Luck refused to work her magic on them. They released two albums for PIR , “Past, Present and The Futures” and “The Greetings of Peace”, both these albums have been sought-after rarities for years, includes club & rare groove classics.

The Futures – 1975 – Castles In The Sky

The Futures were one of the most criminally underrated soul harmony vocal groups of the 1970s. Despite the greatness of their recordings, they failed to make it big. This 1975 release is deservedly viewed as a classic “Sweet Soul” album today although it went nowhere when originally released. Highly recommended. This is a @320 vinyl rip of my original Buddah record with covers. Tracks A1. Castles 7.52 A2. ( Love Lives On A) Windy Hill 4.29 A3. Don’t Close The Book 3.03 A4. Super Love 2.44 B1. I Had A Dream 6.52 B2. Every Man Is God 5.40 B3. Do Unto Others 3.05 B4. Love Will Be Around Forever 3.50 B5. Ninety Days ( In The House Of Love Correction) 3.04 1 The first LP issued by The Futures a fine Philly vocal quintet who’d recorded a number of singles earlier in the 70s, but who finally cracked the LP …

Maxine Weldon – 1975 – Alone On My Own

Another one of those artist who had no success back at the glory days of soul and funk. But the lady had a voice…. At the same style like Marlena Shaw and Esther Phillips (work on the Kudu label during the early 70s) with jazz and blues influences. This is a @320 Vinyl rip of my original Monument record with covers. Tracks A1 Alone on My Own 2.38 A2 Night Prayer 3.07 A3 Where’s the One? 2.47 A4 Are You Coming Home Again? 2.52 A5 Lend Me Your Life 2.29 A6 Storms of Troubled Times 2.34 B1 I Want Sunday Back Again 2.45 B2 I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise 3.15 B3 My Way 4.06 B4 But Beautiful 3.34 B5 Someone Loves You Honey 2.38 One of those endlessly versatile vocalists who eventually earn the tag “song stylist,” Maxine Weldon is equally at home singing soul, jazz, or blues, and …
