The Saints

I'll Let You Slide C/w Love Can Be

This 45 has been the preserve of only the very top DJs for over three decades now. First gracing one of the 80s finest Soul collections as yet another Soul Bowl discovery; But surprisingly came back onto the market when top DJ Grahame Ellis decided to call it a day and part with his incomparable accumulation of rare soul dance 45s.

It was then raised up into cult-status by none other than “Butch”; since those heady days, the DJs who have supported it since, reads like a who’s who of Rare Soul Philosophers. Arthur Fenn, Dave Rippoles, Dave Welding… but to underline it’s serve-rarity, it is a disc that has also eluded the likes of such NS Royalty as Soul Sam etc.

So check out what all the fuss is about this North Carolina “impossible” is all about - and immerse yourself into slick vocal-group rare-soul unusually driven by intricate guitar licks and cymbals - no smash, bang wallop arrangement, no blaring horns battling with the super-smooth vocals for supremacy, just superlative creamy vocals whipping up a silky upper-class rare soul dancer.

So good is the a-side, again the flipside has been overlooked by some collectors..the flip I feel is only an hares-breadth away from being every note as good.

A double-helping of “thinking man’s” Northern Soul at it’s absolute finest… with a second to none pedigree.

TOTAL CLASS AIN’T IT! PS Played by the mighty Mick H. at the totally-top-class “Va Va Voom” event on Saturday to quote “A Manic packed dancefloor of 150…”

Belaires

I Got That Feelin' C/w The Rabbit

The iconic Motor City’s label least known Northern Soul rarity. Ready to achieve it’s long overlooked potential that has somehow been delayed.

Tony Alvon the “Sexy Coffee Pot” man comes under the watchful skills of Gino Washington for this Detroit Northern Soul stomper. Like his better distributed but highly sought after Atlantic recordings; this thumper is also powered by blaring horns and rasping vocals.

This is a proper foot-to-the-floor dancer; decorated with low-down dirty sax blows, rattling drums and soaring trumpets accompany Tony Alvon’s dominant statements bolstered by the compulsory squealing girl-group back up.

It is a mystery why this 45 hasn’t ever joined the “other” Palmer’s into iconic status, unquestionable pedigree but like a few others suffering a little from it’s own obscurity.

Flip it over to be blown away by a typically insane “Tony Alvon” hammond manipulation colliding with a totally irresponsible saxophonist who breaks all the rules to whip up what can only be described as a “beast” of an instrumental!

Two compelling sides now ready for their day in sun, potential is HUGE!!

Magnum

Fully Loaded

1974 8 man California Funk gathering create an Album Grail!!

Recorded in California after which Phoenix Records gained a distributed deal with Jamie Records in Philadelphia; allowing house-band Great Expectations & Magnum to release a few singles through Jamie/Guyden’s highly respected Philly / L.A. collaboration label “Phil L.A. Soul” neat play on words.

But this album sold ion trifling quantities and has always been considered one of “Soul’s” hard to acquire platters. Ironic as this highly talented octet convincingly blend Soul/Jazz/Funk with real potency.

Check out a sample of their work on the soundfile, and you’ll be wondering why this team never made it huge - innovative, brave and forceful music with every track impressing.

Vinyl & labels are Mint - cover reveals only light signs of handling..

It’s RARE and it’s a beauty!

Delorise Berry

No Other Girl C/w Crying Won't Help Me Now

Current spin for legendary DJ John Vincent - a man never afraid to drop in a taste of the unheard rarity into a set a bejeweled with NS classics set.

Check this neglected beauty, it is elusive on it’s 1968 Cotillion/Atlantic release which you seldom come across. But the first press from small town Florida is today one of those highly desirable “firsts” that are becoming increasingly challenging to own.

Before you is the 1967 cutely designed Gator Records from the hamlet of Palatka. You can feel the local horns rippling, as they assisted the young voice of Delorise Berry to craft a primitive but so very effective Northern Soul dancer. Saturated in magical naivety Delorise serves up a relentless and potent dancer, little wonder it’s a Mr. Vincent favourite.

But wait until you hear the exceptional flipside that will irresistibly appeal to two Soul collectors styles. An uncredited male vocal group join Delorise to carefully construct a phenomenal harmony ballad, rich male vocals support a determine Sister vocal. The harmony guys will love it, but it carrying enough “pain” for the Deep Soul aficionados to salivate over.

Two superior sides, quirky unforgettable label design displaying why we vinyl-junkies just love those primitive “firsts”

Village Choir

Sweet Hot Lips C/w Along The Beach

Could they have chosen a better label name, as the vehicle for these two sensational sides - both of which are soaked with the what the streets of New York have to offer.

Salacious, sultry, sexy blending of Latin, Soul & Jazz carried by wave after wave of horns, classy guitar picking and a pleading lead vocal reaching out to those pacifying girls in the background…just so decidedly absorbing.. a dancefloor swayer of serious class.

Flip it over for an equally enthralling 3.00 minutes as the “Choir” again deliver a breezy blend of New York’s major dance influences.. This time the lead vocals are shared, when the male lead is joined by a provocative lady with the voice of an Angel; and whilst all this activity is filling the studio the session is thickened even further with a unobtrusive full harmony backing.

This gathering can do no wrong - love all their work, and some of it like this example are “Dog-Rare”

Ray Scott & The Scottsmen

Right Now C/w Feeling No Pain

Strap yourself in! Ray Scott and his boys are gonna blast you out of your seat; with an unforgiving 2.40 minutes foot-top-the-floor high octane Northern Soul rasper.

Directed by one of Northern Soul’s most prolific contributors Bert “Super Hits” DeCoteaux who whips up a storm of horns from the first note - then Ray steps forward to serve us with total NS dance; with his snarling, growling, spitting style of uncompromising force.

As if not to be outdone the horns gather power and dictate the pace, but Ray blows them all away - boy this guy can bellow with the best of them. Totally overwhelming dancer with few equals when it comes to enthusiasm, presence and delivery!

So dripping with the Wow-Factor it is easy to forget the flipside is darn good also…

Invitations

Watch Out Little Girl C/w You're Like A Mystery

Current dancefloor destroyer! and a regret for me as recently it was pulled from my grasp and DJ set by an offer I couldn’t refuse… well it had detonated a dance hall crush, so my fellow jock for the night just had to have it.

Those guaranteed crowd-igniters are vital DJ Box residents, and I miss that luxury of being able to “up” the atmosphere when ever required.

But I’m a perfectionist, and this Mint - PROMO copy has a light storage lift not affecting play in any way. So I’ve decided to rely on other crowd-pleasers to rescue a dwindling floor-audience.

A minor flaw - very minor as the labels and the vinyls are immaculate. Ideal for the DJ who appreciates the value of a banker.. bristling with quality, desirability and brutal charm!

Tommy Ridgley

My Love Gets Stronger

Everybody’s favourite and a Stone-Cold classic!

From the vinyl wastelands of New Orleans comes a mid-tempo Soul experience dripping with slick delivery and sumptuous cooing girls.

The ripened vocal of Crescent City veteran fits snugly into Bob Robins dreamy Northern Soul stroller that swells into an infectious lust; as those purring girls elevate that matured “Ridgley” delivery. Crafting everlasting Northern Soul that is now, and always will be considered an ultimate NS Trophy to own.

Full marks to equally experienced John Vincent long-standing NS Jock for first playing this 45 against the tide of hard-hitting stompers - mid-tempo brilliance that 30 years on is no easy to apprehend now than it was then..

Do not pass by..

Tobi Lark

Sweep It Out In The Shed C/w Challenge My Love

Dodge the dancefloor-dash as this Detroiter detonates! which ever side you drop the needle on!

The double act of Dave Hamilton & Rony Darrell once again deliver the goods hard and heavy with a hunk of R&B flavoured Northern Soul with the power to move the punters up and at the dancefloor

It’s a conversation stopper - ” hold on a ‘mo I’ve just gotta dance to this tune! ” as you get there as quickly as possible to find enough floor-space to do this beast-of-a-tune justice.

Flip is over to be treated to a more conventional Detroit groove that glistens with the class that Dave Hamilton consistently crafts.

Two killer tunes - with “Shed” totally powering head n’ shoulders above the norm, you expect from a Detroit production !

Cynthia & The Imaginations

Hey Boy (i Love You) C/w Love Is Real

Some of us never learn… do we?

A close friend of mine fell madly in love with a telesales girl’s voice, when he eventually went on a date with her, shockingly to find she only just fitted into the front seat of his Mini and had an epic Tug O’ War tussle to get her out again..

Well as you’d expect, Ive learned nothing from my friends experience because I’m head over heels for this lady’s voice, Cynthia you’ve made my toes curl up!!

So delightfully delicious Detroit, I’m swooning in anticipation as to what the flip may bring.. as I wait for Dale Warren & Ernest Burt’s innovative echo-chamber intro; the Siren that is Cynthia, does not fail us..and clarity returns as her Angelic vocal cuts the air again.

Innovative it may be - but the side that grabs you “deep” is the searing “Hey Boy” I have no hesitation in proclaiming it as one of the finest Detroit Sister tunes ever recorded…but I would say that wouldn’t I …

I’m In Love…with that voice

Hard Drivers Featuring Vivian Lee

Since Was A Little Girl

Progressive Rare-Soul Jocks take note of this hard hitting Sister-Funk, ideal play for the currently surging forward “Upfront Northern Soul” scene.

Out of Brooklyn New York emerges this rhythmic rarity demanding DANCE! The PMT spiked no nonsense vocal of Vivian Lee serves up a racing attitude riddled stance, perfectly complimented by honking horns and jazzy guitar.

Perfectly potent dancer who’s reputation is growing as you listen. No need from us to underline it’s potential anymore than the soundfile, makes obvious.

Maxine Brown

Oh No Not My Baby C/w You Upset My Soul

Some songs are just impossible not to adore!

Carole King & Gerry Goffin’s timeless classic ranks within the greatest simplistic compositions. Rod Stewart, Cher, Linda Ronstadt, all gave this song credence. But Maxine gives is supreme class.

A classic in it’s most desirable form.

A gleaming 1965 UK DEMO complete with birth-sleeve. Glorious condition which I’m finding hard to locate a flaw with.

Gorgeous song, even better looking label..

Carol Friday

Everybody I Know C/w Wasted Days

Totally immaculate Red & White Demo, snugly wrapped in an original company sleeve!!

From those unforgettable halcyon days, when a Saturday night at a Northern Soul club could trigger off a week long search for a tune you heard that was a British release. During the 70s DJ’s like Alan Rhodes, Nev Wherry, Ian Clark, Rick Scott, Tony Ellis were almost weekly finding fabulous UK only Northern Soul candidates.

This is 45 is one that eluded everybody, except the privileged DJ or 100% dedicated market stall, junk shop hound. But even back then when most of these discs were less than 10 years old “Carol Friday” was a darn tough 45 to snare.

So we’re extra-please today to offer a flawless copy - especially as upon hearing it again after many, many years’ it instantly uplifts your day catapulting you back to an era when finding a rare-NS-jewel locally was almost possible.

But in this form and immaculate…no chance!

Come Back C/w Baby If You Were Gone

The lure of the Okeh Promo - never leaves you does it?

Amazingly this beauty has never been bootlegged, re-issued or received enough turntable exposure for it to come under the “oldie” umbrella. Sounds just as fresh and exhilarating as the first time I heard it, circa 1972.

Falling into the same category as a few other stand-out NS Okeh’s.. Johnny Robinson, Sandra Phillips jump to mind..truly wonderful Northern Soul that has bemusingly flown over the heads of too many NS jocks.

Take a listen, this is exceptional stuff screaming to have it’s day in court.

But there’s more, for the vocal group enthusiast “Baby If You Were Gone” is a drop-to-your-knees Soul ballad with a harmony enriching provided by an uncredited group.

Shame on me, shame on you, shame on all of us…this should’ve been a Northern Soul Monster decades ago!

Pork Chops C/w Cool It

A listing for the UK SUE completest as they will already be aware # 391 in the series is an empty space in most label runs.

Guy Stevens & Chris Blackwell’s exploration of American music in the quest to bring the British kids the best variety possible, covered all genres. Blues, Jazz, Soul, Doo Wop, instrumentals they covered it all their indiscriminate searches.

This example the pair dug up a 1961 New York R&B doo-wopper of infinite charm, topside side is a mid-paced harmony grove with flip being a frantic uptempo trip into Titty-Shaking territory.

Two great sides showcasing SUE’s diverse taste nbd willingness to experiment.

This time the experiment spectacularly failed, as it didn’t sell a “Bean” and yet another SUE rarity was born.

Sam Dees

Lonely For You Baby C/w I Need You Girl

Still a dancefloor destroyer - hard to find the words to fully describe just how popular the rumbling hunk Northern Soul has been over the last 3 decades.

The now iconic, but simplistic intro bass line decorated by a thumpin’ piano is the signal to drop everything and join that heaving dancefloor, to skilfully weave your way through 2.40 seconds of imperative Northern Soul. Made vital by Sam Dees roughened vocal, snarling painfully with his plea to see his girl once again, produces the complete mood-shifting experience, set solidly into a uniquely convincing strolling arrangement.

Just Monstrous, no matter how many times you hear it - it will move you.

The Key To My Happiness C/w Weeping Cup

Black is beautiful, in this case truly gorgeous..

THIS IS NORTHERN SOUL!!

One of the greatest NS Dance tunes ever made - it’s steady lift towards the summit of “back-drop” inducing heaven has never been bettered. Relentless in it’s pursuit of total power & dancefloor domination.

Rumbling intro, is tickled by subtle tambourines, then the vocals invade! The lead singer keeps pace, his teammates support with oohs, coos, chants and choruses, completely submerging the studio in a mighty wall of sound. Then as if in competition, the horns blow longer and harder, louder and louder until a heart-stopping crescendo is reached! AWESOME!

THIS REALLY IS REAL-DEAL NORTHERN SOUL!!

If it wasn’t for the all powerful, incomparable A-side the flipside “Weeping Cup” would have become a Northern Soul classic in it’s own right.

Two sides to-die-for in a rarely seen head-turning format.

Never Do I Worry ( About You ) C/w Funky Soul Dance

One of the very hardest 45s to secure, on this highly regarded Lennie LaCour vehicle for local Soul artists.

Milwaukee’s & some of Chicago’s finest came under the spell of the areas most prolific writer/producer. Mr. La Cour who tirelessly not only churned out quality street-level soul but also covering all it’s styles.

This particular rarity showcases the man’s versatility perfectly with the a-side giving up spanking upbeat Northern Soul ; with the flipside a offering the dancer solid meaty 60s’s FUNK experience. BOth sides benefiting from muscular horn and snappy vocals.

Both sides ideal tunes to ignite the Rare-Soul dance floor; and even more perfect for the discerning collection as this 45 seldom if ever comes to market.

Currently only residing in the NS elite DJ boxes, this double-delicacy of the good stuff, is surely now set to grace another DJ set.

This Love Starved Heart Of Mine (it's Killing Me)

THE Original 10” studio acetate.

One of only two known copies of this the most sensational of all the Motown unissued recordings to have emerged from those hallowed vaults.

THE STORY.

Brought to vinyl by an enthusiastic Dana Smart, who after playing it to his boss the head of catalog A&R at Motown. It was decided to be debuted as the lead title on the “Marvin Gaye Classics Collection 1994”, which spawned a limited “Promo Piece” using The Temptations “Beauty Is Only Skin Deep” as a style guide for the retro picture sleeve. Dana’s favourite Motown track was reborn on vinyl and his boss’s favourite track off he CD was picked as the flip and limited quantities sneaked out as a taster for the forthcoming Compact Disc.

Only enough to suite the promo purposes were made, and the rest is history..as it rocketed to the very summit of Northern Soul popularity with the dancers, as sparse copies filtered into England.

Before you today is the original 10” “DIRECT CUT” acetate, offering unbelievably clear sound in totally Mint condition and studio dated 12/5/94.

Fidelity is jaw-dropping..as you are about to hear.

Albert Washington

Case Of The Blues C/w One More Chance

Albert Washington already a man with a number of great Northern Soul favourites to his name as his flawless vocal strength gives a tune that extra added special feel as he hits the high notes in true style on his Cincinnati counterparts.

This seldom seen disc again offers up fabulous Northern Soul spiced with both R&B and Popcorn influences. So check him out yet again on this D.I.Y. ground-level recording.

So at ease with the bold-brass backed production Albert gives a short rap, before the haunting horns lay the foundations for his gnarly vocal onslaught as he crafts a convincing dancer, just aching for that long overdue NS turntable exposure to lift awareness..

But do not overlook the fabulous Deep Soul ballad on the flip that really shows off the great artists vocal prowess.

Never Love A Robin

The styrene STOCK copy or even the elusive UK Direction press is currently igniting the dancefloors all over the North Of England. At last this 1968 thumper has wisely been revived to a tumultuous reception.

So when I just found a MINT previously unplayed VINYL Promo copy with perfect labels & birth sleeve. I’m thinking this would be a mighty-fine capture for those of you who seek perfection with the Northern Soul classics.

Well a sleeping Classic actually, as it has not received too many spins since the Twisted Wheel days.. until now. But it’s long overdue rejuvenation has surely given birth to a NS classic in the making.

Potent in-your-face Northern Soul.. as Babara & Brenda Gaskins injecting some Sister-guts to the Tommy Hunt original.

Reality C/w Hey, Hey

The vinyl equivalent of “Great Star Of India”?

maybe not - but certainly the jewel of Soul Sam’s sets!

Soaring vocals glide of a raft of cymbals to introduce magnificent twangy guitars that lay down an inevitable dance arrangement nobody can ignore. Fabulously delivered soulful vocals knit into the “Stanley Clarke” level bass guitar rhythm, whilst a lead guitar sings with some innovative background decoration.

Rare Soul Dance does not come any better.. but then again what you expect for a Top “Soul Sam” Tune…exactly.

Flip it over and there’s no soppy sweet soul ballad to relieve you - no is a punchy fusion of jazz keyboard, those same authoritative guitarist and a booming lead vocal leading an Earth Wind & Fire styled vocal production.

Killer Jazz Funk groove, only just a step or two behind that gloriously effect soulful dance lead side.

Double joy awaits the lucky new owner…

Dana Valery

Not The Flower But The Root

Think again if you ever thought this lady didn’t have Soul.

Here are Dana’s legendary Brunswick sessions guided by Carl Davis, Willie Henderson & Tom Tom Washington with those two stand-out Northern Soul tracks, that failed to gain release as 45s.

  1. “This Love Is Real” - killer Sister take on the Jackie Wilson dancer!
  2. “Higher & Higher” - ditto, ditto, ditto
  3. “You Babe” - solid 1972 smooth as silk dance groove
  4. “Oh Boy” - sweet sweet Soul with full male vocal group back
  5. “Have You Seen Him” as above a fine twist on the Chi-Lites classic

the other 4 tracks also emit seamless soul grooves…

With Sonny Sanders arranging, the 4 main Brunswick motivators, galvanize Dana’s one and only album into one very sought after platter…as upon it’s 1972 release, sales failed miserably..

Condition is impeccable, cover still retains shrink wrap, both labels are perfect, as is the perhaps previously unplayed vinyl.

You can hear why Richard Searling was eager to release this lady on his discerning “Go Ahead” label. As this album just rippling with the feelgood factor!

Rare California FUNK - and some..!

From the streets of L.A. Central comes some heavy-duty-FUNK instructions, E. Rodney Jones style, Brother Byron snarls commands to do the “Booty Whip” whilst a jazzy piano and down n’ dirty sax drive the rhythm.

Filthy suggestive Funker with great key changes that signal the horns to stride in.. then towards the end that talented keyboard player goes off on a Ramsey Lewis trip.

Insane stuff..

Flip it over and this rare indie gives up an equally inventive performance evoking visions of orange flares, broad rimmed red floppy hats, weighty gold chains hanging around the neck of the neighborhood Pimp, as he’s struts his block..

Rippling with “Blackploitation” attitude.. totally fabulous also, in it’s own unique way..

There is real charm and wanting within these grooves as the gathering do their utmost to construct a harmony masterpiece. That is where the value lies, in it’s obscurity and it’s obvious “walk in” off he streets hopefulness.
