Joe Turner

Lipstick, Powder And Paint C/w Rock A While

UK tri-center Gold Text rarity in fine clean condition.

Sorry, this item has already been won!
The winning bid was £ 377.00

Bob Andy

The Ghetto Stay In The Mind

The 30 seconds slow intro rap makes you wait before this great song kick off. Well worth the wait as moody horns flood the air as the dance rhythm enters the fray.

Highly regarded “Dub” seldom seen for sale - especially in this fine condition - just one brief light blemish on a-side vinyl otherwise this 45 could have achieved the elusive MINT grade!

Soulful vocal and those dirty horns fuse into one highly convincing tune which reaches a peak with a late lusting saxophone intrusion…

do not pass by.

Tennors With Tommy Mccook & Supersonics

Ride Yu Donkey C/w Cleopatra

Original Jamaican “Wirl” press, offering up two uplifting vocal group grooves. Presenting strong, tight harmony vocals carried on the reliable backing of Tommy McCook and his Supersonics.

A double-helping of feelgood dance reggae, although the vinyl has multiple light surface marks but plays as you can hear, neat clean and clear.

Roy & Millie

Never Say Goodbye C/w This World

Rare 1963 UK press is very imprerssive condition.

Sorry, this item has already been won!
The winning bid was £ 35.00

Justin Hinds And The Dominoes

Bother Ration C/w Satan

An immaculate 1964 UK press.

Two fabulous Duke Reid productions capturing the very essence of the Jamaican music of the time. Uplifting SKA both sides featuring strong horn delivery prompting the lead vocal and his back up boys “The Dominoes” into smooth seamless harmonies with both sides showcasing fine trumpet solos.

With me personally preferring the flipside “Satan” being the meatier of the two recordings.

A double classic style offering on it’s extremely rare UK press, in condition that is rarely witnessed 50 years on…

A magnificent copy - when are you gonna encounter such a fine one again?

Sorry, this item has already been won!

Neat clean UK press

Joe Mayfield

I'm A Natural Born Man C/w You're The One I Love

Very elusive Louisiana Blues in previously unplayed until the double soundfile was lifted, comes complete with it’s original flipback brown paper bag/sleeve.

The fabulously mysterious Joe Mayfield only released 3 45s which is astonishing when you consider his explosively expressive vocal saturated in pain.

This 45 also made a brief appearance on the “La Salle” utilizing the same release # but before you today is it’s ultimate clothes in freshly clean flawless condition.

Click the soundfile and enjoy an urban Bluesman at his obscure best!

Joe Richie And The Headliners

My Miriam C/w I Don't Give

Small Town Texas gives up finely crafted and ultimately rare Teener with a totally contrasting Jazzy “Tittyshaker” on the flipside.

Joe Richie and the Boys are certainly not a one-trick band - their early 45 the highly rated “Across The Bay” is totally sought after. This slightly rarer release is harder to find and offers two winners of differing styles.

The TEENER is a full production utilizing a full girl-group adding a haunting quality with their constantly dreamy “arrrhings”. Joe Richie has the perfect “Teen Idol” vocal pouring out his desire in a rather alluring manner and the unexpected girl rap towards the end, makes this a stand-out Teener.

Flip it over for an “unknown Tittyshaker” with snappy Saxophone, forceful drum work soon to be joined by a twangy Texas guitar! Mid-tempo instrumental the evokes visions of sparsely dressed GO-Go dancers slinking about the smoke-hung stage as a Jazz-Trio so appreciation with a seductive jam.

RARE and local and extremely interesting platter..
