While better known for quiet storm staples performed by the Moments, the Whatnauts, Sylvia Robinson, and George Kerr, All Platinum Records wore many hats. On a handful of labels they cut all facets of soul music, including the funky tracks on this collection by a number of the long list of artists who ventured into their Englewood, NJ, recording studios. Sounding better than ever on CD are funky concoctions by Dallas, TX, native Bobby Patterson, the Rimshots, saxman Lonnie Youngblood, First Class, Mother Freedom Band, and more. Brother to Brother's warmer-than-room-temperature "In the Bottle" is also onboard, along with four tracks by Eddie "Juni" Fisher. Even the sexy Moments funk in with "Stay."
