Second Best (Is Never Enough)
Second Best (Is Never Enough) (limited translucent blue vinyl 7")
Cat: BRSPEC 02. Rel: 26 Jan 21
  1. Second Best (Is Never Enough) (A Mike Maurro remix - edit) (5:02)
  2. Second Best (Is Never Enough) (2:53)
Review: Philly Groove and Brookside link once more for another perfect piece of classic soul with high class strings and big, twirly vocals all shining their way into your affections. Side A gets a subtle remix from Mike Maurro that makes it more suited to this DJ friendly 7'' version and the reverse then has the more lengthy original version for the completists out there. Pressed on limited edition blue vinyl, this is a golden soul nugget from The Finishing Touch that will take any get together to the next level or serve as a perfect send-off tune at lights up.

Armed & Extremely Dangerous/Love & Happiness (remixes)

  2. Armed & Extremely Dangerous (Ralphi Rosario & Craig J Snider dub mix) (6:20)
  3. Love & Happiness (A Mike Maurro remix) (10:25)
Review: Pioneering disco outfit First Choice built up a fine arsenal of hits in the 70s and 80s. Amongst them was their epic "Armed and Extremely Dangerous" which now gets two new versions served up by Brookside. Hot Mix 5 and Chicago house legend Ralphi "The Raz" Rosario is the man doing the work and the brings big drums and vocals with some superbly soulful keys next to Craig J Snider. On the flip, the band's most iconic tune "Love & Happiness" gets a rework by Mike Maurro. It is more soulful and warm, laced with big drums and sweeping pads.

Love Freeze
Cat: BRPD 21. Rel: 20 Feb 19
  1. Love Freeze (DJ Spinna Re-Freak) (8:57)
  2. Love Freeze (long version) (5:44)
Review: In its original, hard-to-find "long version" form, First Choice's "Love Freeze" is one of the greatest chunks of soaring Philadelphia Soul/early disco around. It was recorded and released - initially in edited form - in 1975. You can find the elusive "Long Version" on the flipside of this essential reissue, which is headed up by an even more epic "Re-Freak" by the effervescent DJ Spinna. Clearly re-mixed from the original master tapes, his near ten-minute version builds slowly, breaks down in the middle, builds up again and finishes with an impressively dubbed-out conclusion. It actually sounds like the sort of floor-focused late '70s remix with which Tom Moulton made his name. That, of course, is no bad thing.

Native New Yorker (Mike Maurro remix)
Cat: BRPD 25. Rel: 15 Jul 21
  1. Native New Yorker (Mike Maurro mix) (9:46)
  2. Use It Up & Wear It Out (Mike Maurro mix) (8:14)
Review: Originally released back in 1977, 'Native New Yorker' is considered by some as one of the greatest disco productions ever. Odyssey was originally formed in 1968 by Virgin Islands born sisters Carmen, Lillian and Louise Lopez. Lillian and Louise later teamed up with Filipino producer Tony Reynolds where they explored a more pop-oriented sound as heard here. Brookside Records dug through the Sony vaults and came up with a pair of remixes by NYC 'mixmaster ' Mike Maurro. The A-side's Extended version has a long extended intro, break and extended instrumental sections. On the flip, 'Use It Up and Wear It Out' boosts the rhythm section and adds subtle changes while staying respectful to the original sound

  2. Big Stone Wall (Around Your Heart) (2:51)
Review: A Philly Groove Records classic by Tapestry has been mixed, remastered and edited specifically for 7" vinyl on this one, courtesy of Brookside - the record label started by the late Reid Whitelaw. The A side features a remix of the classic "Big Stone Wall" by New York disco don and Brookside label boss Mike Maurro. Over on the B side, it is reserved for the original single version from 1973, complete with an awe-inspiring horns section and roaring, life-affirming vocal delivery.

Hooked For Life (Mike Maurro remixes)
Cat: BRDSK 001. Rel: 08 Jun 21
  1. Hooked For Life (Mike Maurro remix) (8:34)
  2. Soul Searchin' Time (Mike Maurro remix) (9:25)
Review: Atlantic Records and Brookside team up to bring new life to some The Trammps classics. They call upon the always on form maestro that is Mike Maurro who updates the 1975 standards (one previously only available in the US, the other only on promo in the UK) with plenty of big extended intros, instrumental passes and breakdowns that will get the floor pumping. Both tunes dazzle with great synth work and heart aching vocals, and have been fully mastered in this sound's homeland, Philadelphia, by Mike Tarsia of the world famous Sigma Sound Studios.
