Manhattan Soul: Scepter Wand & Musicor collects tracks from the influential triad of independent labels that were based out of New York in the '60s and '70s. This isn't another compilation of hits by artists who recorded for the labels. You won't find Dionne Warwick, the Kingsmen, B.J. Thomas, or the Isley Brothers, as they are easily found on various primer collections. These 24 tracks boast lesser-heard but no less enjoyable cuts by the Shirelles, the Toys, and the Platters along with previously unissued songs "A Little Bit of Heartbreak" by Helen Henry, "The Same Change" by Jackie Moore, and "Stick by Me" by Ed Townsend. The fan of the eclectic soul labels will be pleased with the rarities on this set, which also includes a great booklet with plenty of photos, label scans, and essays.
