Garfield Fleming

Don't Send Me Away

This collaboration between Philly & New York crafts divine 80’s Northern Soul.

In recent times this perennial floor-filler has disappeared from view… in fact our shockingly low sales data is frightening how it has completely vanished into collections…

New York Soul veteran Matt Parsons teams up with Philly 70s & 80’s dance-doyen David Morris. The result is a stunning example of its genre..

The against-the-grain gravel-coasted “Fleming” vocal, was so out of vogue at the time, out of kilter with the “disco” flow of the early 80s. But now the cocktail of dance-arrangement and a tortured voice works so perfectly; as the vocal-group chorus elevates the song yet another notch..

A huge tune countrywide during 80’s & 90’s today a renaissance is surely overdue as the current dearth of copies should tempt the DJ’s towards reactivation… even if that doesn’t happen.. it matters not when you hear unadulterated vocals of this depth, woven into slick dance productions…

..ownership is imperative.

Frankie ( Love Man ) Crocker

Ton Of Dynamite

Controversial in its heyday, along with Prince George and a few others; considered “To Funky” by the Northern Soul purists.. but both titles in recent years have enjoyed an unprecedented dance-hall renaissance, as again “Funk” is Northern Soul’s prodigal son..

A certain floorpacker again, but this copy is no veteran of the NS turntables - straight from a lifetime of being filed this offering is in utterly immaculate condition - tiny bb drill hole through the label is its only flaw.

We challenge you to locate a copy that hasn’t been around the “block” since 1974, this platter has spent it’s life shelved and ignored… now seeks love and affection from a NS old-schooler who vividly remembers the scary vibrations this juggernaut triggered at Cleethorpes Pier.. or how it emptied seats at the Highland Room..

A Classic that has not suffered the hardships of the NS circuit for the last 40 years…

We repeat condition is GLORIOUS!!

Eddie Bishop

Call Me

A timeless Northern Soul instrumental anthem; as Eddie Bishop transforms Tony Hatch’s much-recorded composition, transforming it into a NS dancefloor favourite.

A guaranteed “gridlocker” as that warbling sax calls you up; So wonderfully, is the saxophone blown it is almost as if the words are being sung by the reed. With those the shrill ladies reminding you of the title with timely “Call Me” choruses this instrumental is complete.

This is the easiest-going Northern Soul tune ever, so inoffensive but at the same time compelling… outrageous popularity was a cert.

Condition of this listing is near perfect, just very light age spotting around the perimeter of the center hole, is it’s only minuscule flaw.

Tommy Tucker

Oh! What A Feeling / Wine Bottles

From the man who provided the Northern Soul scene with the Flirtations - Stronger Than Her Love - Herb Abramson struts his versatility by guiding a brooding slab of male-vocal New York Popcorn/Northern Soul - evoking visions of darkened Nite-Clubs, hanging cigarette clouds obscuring the view of an artist flawlessly delivering and unhurried vocal-stroll…

But the unrivaled vision though, has got to be that WHITE PROMO British London label sitting inside it’s birth sleeve, brandishing entirely unblemished vinyl surface that can only be described as Mint minus + (as hard as I try I can detect not a blemish)

Leaving its best selling point until last - astonishingly we can find no evidence of a USA Festival label release (allegedly scheduled for Festival #700) but never happened.

BRITISH ONLY.?

So if you want to own this impressive slab of Northern Soul Popcorn, there is not a USA counterpart - and it can get no better than owing this White Demo in pristine condition..

Great tune - surrounded by a little vinyl-mystery..

If the above testimonial is not enough to have you earmarking this vinyl-anomaly for your collection; check out the preposterously-impressive R&B grinder “Wine Bottles” hidden away on the flipside …

Leo Mccarty

Just A Friendly Reminder / I Fell In Love With Love

DOG-RARE Sweet Soul, from Boston, Massachusetts - ridiculously impossible to find.

The label credits a single artist but the uncredited vocal-group purr so gracefully away in the background.. as the “Falsetto” scythes through the air. Boston’s D. B. Shrier was obviously inspired by the best Philadelphia could offer. As he lavishly serves up a torrent strings, whilst cunningly injecting a lively flute into the mix, that perfectly marries with the searing voices.

Perfect for the serious collector of rare Sweet Soul / Low Rider collector/DJ.

So what the flipside like? We can hear you all wondering…

It’s a Soulful DANCER of course.. and again Philly influenced, cram-jam packed with strings; with a wah-wah guitar driving the rhythm and those Falsetto again mingling seamlessly into the production.

So we have two tasty titles - presented on a label we all know - by an artist we don’t - with all his teammates not even getting a nod of approval in the label credits..

RARE?… just insanely unobtainable ..and a debutant to our auction pages..

Sue Ann Jones

I'll Give You My Love

Very briefly a handful of copies turn up of this Detroit rarity late last century since then, vey few have appeared for sale - especially in this Mint minus condition.

Sue Ann Jones is this weeks 45 we think will creep up in value..solely on the back of it’s Motor City “Funk” infusion seems so much more in keeping with today’s NS scene than it did last century..

A typically clean David Hamilton production manages to seamlessly blend Sister-attitude into a fluid Motor City arrangement that subtlely morphs from a smooth floater into a chunky PMT Funk groove, whilst still retaining that beautiful Michigan personality.

James ( Mr. Soulfingers ) Arnold

Someone New / Your Chain Of Love

I’ve always loved obscurity and USA Soul provides more D.I.Y. records from unknown artists from small towns, on labels that more often than not only had one release.

Having said that, some of these “Garden Shed” projects crafted some truly stunning sounds.. both sides of this serious-mystery 45 come up trumps..

Topside is a convincing journey into gloom, as James Arnold gives up anguished display of rejection, on his one and only recording; of which Percy Sledge would have been proud of… and Rick Hall would have complimented Melvin Brown on his horn section guidance. With the girl-group choir layering the atmosphere with hopelessness, this is to coin a phrase….

SOUL AS DEEP AS YOU LIKE ITAND AS RARE AS YOU WANT IT

Flip it over and Northern Soul awaits you… utilizing all same characteristics of the Deep Soul a-side. Big-blow horn kick-start the session and never pause for a moment. Those girls are again in top-form chirping out the choruses with their long ooooooo’s be particularly impressive, as is the mysterious James Arnold .. sturdy “unknown” Northern Soul ….but the A-side, well that is very special Deep Soul indeed..

Noting, it’s severe rarity, as it is definitely the one and only copy we have ever had for sale….in 45 years.

Benny Scott & The Soul Masters

No Other Woman But You / Little Bobo's Soul

Take a long good listen to this impossible Texas double-sider - because the flipside reveals something rather special, that up until today has remained out of the eye of Funk / Jazz Jocks..

Let’s start by talking about the A-side on this San Antonio label that apparently chose the name “Mellow Town” with aspirations of emulating the “Motor Town” success in Detroit; Emphasized by the few other know recordings on this fascinating label. ie The Vandelletes (so very Marvelettes-esque), The Royal Imperials (killer Northern Soul) and this equally obscure Benny Scott offering.

Blasting brass clears the way for Benny’s screaming Texas styled vocal, giving its all. Noting the fabulously-frisky arrangement and how the freestyle-horns have a brief brush with Jazz on a few notes, whilst Mr. Scott struts his chords.

Bringing us the the seriously different flipside - so different in fact, it may take 2 or three plays to realize what a winner this self-absorbed cocktail of Jazz N’ FUNK is; with some outrageous solo’s littering the whole production… Until now I thought cool Jazz-Funk was confined to the 70s.. but not now I’ve took time to fully take in this masterpiece from Benny’s “Soul Masters”

Surely a must for the Avant-garde DJ who likes to impress with really RARE 45s..

Both sides are so individualistic, off-the-wall and so very skillfully executed… little wonder San Antonio has always been consider the “Musical Hot-Bed” of Texas..

PS. This rarity is utterly flawless

Dean Parrish

Determination / Turn On Your Love Light

Young ladies in tight jeans are much-like British-made Soul Demo’s… the older you are, the stronger the desire for encounter becomes…

So hopefully without stirring your inner desires to breaking point, spy the label scan. Then click the soundfile to refresh your mind with the exhilarating vocal of Mr. Dean Parrish.. a Northern Soul icon right up there with the most notable names of the scene.

Green & White DEMO with fine clean vinyl both sides;

“Determination” side label has a discreet “7” on it (see scan). “A” label side, has a light sticker removal blemish (squint at scan). These couple of minuscule imperfections may mean an iconic British DEMO may fall into Old-School hands rather cheap…

..well, certainly cheaper than that sassy-tight-jeaned lady would cost you.

I Just Can't Win / What Can You Do For Me

Another masterpiece from the desk of Johnny Cameron one of Chicago’s prolific architect of 60’s neighborhood Soul.

This is listing is one of his absolutely Dog-Rare vocal group Northern Soul dancers. Like all Mr. Cameron’s work (no not that one) it belies its local origins, shimmering with seamless harmony vocals, ad subtle horns carefully positioned as not to overwhelm the highly-honed vocals.

Proper, real-deal Northern Soul that few collectors own….but every DJ should. Listen to the soundfile, even though the playing surface of both sides has visual light surface marks it plays perfectly as the soundfile confirms.

This Northern Soul giant is backed up with the sweetest of soul harmony ballads… with the lead Falsetto hitting Heaven on more than one occasion.

Two highly sought after sides.

Check out the double-soundfile lifted directly off this disc… very impressed is the least you’ll be..

Not only two sides to-die-for but also carrying that rare characteristics that make them both “Never Tire of” spins.. the genius of Van McCoy & Joe Cobb ensures it…

What can we say about this record, that you don’t already know.. not much really; as it has been a cherished Northern Soul spin by the thinking DJ for decades.. personally I’m still not sure which side I like the best…

A bigger compliment I could not think of!

Crystal Touch

Just Funky Fun / You're The One

Rare Colorado Springs FUNKER backed with a stunning Deep Soul ballad..

Two sides of pure neighborhood quality releae 2 years after the groups formation…a hopeful 7 man gathering of talented local musicians.

We open with the solid-FUNKER written by vocalist Ron Covington & the proficient flutist of the group Mike Hancock. A spunky Funk dancer riding a relentless prompted horn rhythm, a relentless guitar, all manner of additions pepper the arrangement from bongos, flute, Tenor Sax.. from Funker from a most unlikely area for this style..

Flip it over and sweetness seeps from the speakers…those delinquent horns from the “Fun” side, ease off into pure elegance.. as an imploring John McCauley vocal plumbs the depths of emotion for near five minutes. Turning in flawless performance exuding real-soul on every note…with subtle horns and a keyboard for company..

Stand out Soul!! especially towards the end when group harmony comes in to finish off a fine piece of work.

Howard Tate

Baby, I Love You / How Blue Can You Get

Peaches & Cream, Keegan & Toshack, Malbec & Stilton, Smoked Salmon & Capers, Suspenders & Stockings, Girlfrend & Your Credit Card…all pairings very comfortable in each others vicinity…

let me add..

Jerry Ragovoy & Howard Tate - a musical-marriage made in Soul Heaven.. Ragovoy being one of the greatest 60’s exponents of the studio big production and Howard Tate the proprietor of a matchless Soul-Snarling… equally comfortable with a suggestive purr or a squealing howl that he seemed to be able to execute both, whilst singing just one song..

Howard Tate took lyrics and drove them of a verbal roller-coaster ride whilst Mr. Ragovoy directed a suitable arrangement to compliment! This Northern Soul classic showcases that statement perfectly, as prompting horns, punctuate Tate’s expressive pleas as his beseeching soars and falls on queue.

Brilliantly powerful Northern Soul presented here on by far & away its rarest format. 1967 Green & White DEMO is sparkling condition.. vinyl is so very near to Mint minus and the labels as you can see are flawless.. the original birth-sleeve is silly rare also..

A stand-out piece crafted by two stand-out guys..

High Keys

Living A Lie / Let's Take A Chance

We could right a chapter on how this Northern Soul classic influenced the congregation at “The Golden Torch” after all this was one of the greatest stomping dance tunes ever spun there..

Fitting into that frenetic style of “Quick Change Artist” “A Little Togetherness” “Just Ask Me” “I’ve Got Something Good” “Countdown Here I Come” the real-deal “Stompers” the amphetamine saturated faithful could really let loose to… Yes a chapter or maybe even two, on the effect tunes of this calibre had on the minds and bodies of 70s Soul throngs..

On the flipside… I’m lost for words… except.. if there is a better example of the BIG CITY SOUND… I’ve never heard it!!

Al Jarreau

Shake Up / Room-boom

I do remember clearly,. finding this insanely rare 45 towards the end of the last century. The disc stuck out because I so appreciate Al Jarreau’s 70s albums from my brief flirt with Jazz-Funk; never even knowing he did a local Milwaukee Soul 45, and both sides turned out to be belting Northern Soul. I filed it and kept it ever since…

Then I had an excitable collector begging me for my copy after he missed a listing on E-Bay…So I dug around for a while and couldn’t find - then today it popped out of a box I hadn’t touched in memory.. now I have no idea who the customer was… yes my brain is slowly turning to turnip-soup..

Reluctantly I’ve made the decision to make this real-rarity, open-season. Even though the “word” is out, to remind yourself why I would file a record for 15 years without trying to sell it…will become obvious as two “upfront” Northern Soul winners boom their way into your heart.

I do apologize to the collector who first asked if I knew the record..but I’m sure you will see it now and act accordingly.

Without question this highly regarded Soul/Jazz man’s rarest piece of vinyl by eons…and we don’t need to remind anyone of the E-Bay value it was won for, we think the double-soundfile will be all the enticement for ownership you’ll require…

DOG-RARE Northern Soul 45 waiting for it’s chance..

Uniques

Not Too Long Ago

You are viewing the rarest 60’s PROMO on this prolific British label and undoubtedly one of the scarcest of any of the highly-coveted British DEMO possibilities you care to mention.

Scrutinizing the vinyl, inspection reveals only the merest minuscule blemish on the a-side, flipside has a light mark on the run-in. Both sides play “mint” and appear Mint -. Label white background has faint “browning” see scan..

Showcasing Joe Stampley & his team whip up a blue-eyed cauldron of Louisiana Northern Soul… the record that set the bank balance straight for the “Paula” label of Shreveport, the labels first “Hit” in the UK though it sunk without trace, as we have found over the years the “Stock” release on Pye International only appears in dreams…

Don't Let Love Get You Down / Pretty Girl

The summer of 1964 - A Californian genius was at work - crafting yet another peerless Soul offering that fell by the wayside. Willie Hutch a creator behind so many superior Soul recordings…

Superior is the proper word for the legacy he left the Soul-enthusiast with…Just listen to that imploring lead vocal. Weeping with anguish on every word, whilst teammates sooth his pain with luxurious harmonies in the background.

This Rare Soul delicacy is currently firmly featuring within my play list, as my weakness for the genuinely soulful dictates my turntable choices. Much loved for decades but in my view undeservedly living in the shadows of “Just A Boys Dream” which I find weaker on the lead vocal.

If I can have anything to do with it, this vocally preferable Northern Soul beauty will have and equally deserved day in the sun.

The flipside underscores Mr. Hutch’s capabilities as “Pretty Girl” is also deserving of your ear… but the vocal on the Top-side..just kills me!

Condition is stunning both sides..near perfect vinyl - labels are both flawless and of course this is not the copy I’ve played every set for the last 3 months..

Instant Heartbreak ( Just Add Tears ) Alt. Mix / Dream Girl

UNIQUE!! The studio mix George McGregor didn’t release, a pace slower and so much stronger for it. Take a listen to truly sumptuous Motor City vocal group Northern Soul - so slickly delivered by a gathering of highly gifted gentlemen & Mike Terry’s blows.

Until recent times Arthur Ashford, Michael Morgan, Billy Prince and Denis Gilmore’s work has been taken somewhat taken for granted, as with the exception of just one 45 everything this group released is comparatively common; All enjoying strong sales on the Drew label and now currently the Darlings-Of-The-Dancefloor with “If This Is Love ( I’d Rather Be Lonely” which is perhaps the most consistent floor-pleaser nationwide.

So when something “Unique” comes to market, it will be taken very seriously indeed. Especially when it presents mercurial Northern Soul with Mike Terry’s burping-baritone prompting such a gifted-gathering..

Take a listen to superior Northern Soul standing by to enhance some Top-Jocks set or to take some ambitious young-gun DJ nearer to the NS summit…

We repeat - the UNISSUED take of what is already one killer recording - enriched by the different approach.

PS the flipside is “Dream Girl” and as far as we can tell is the same as the Drew 1004 release.

I'm Learning To Trust My Man / Try It. You'll Like It

This listing today covers not only the “UK Motown” offering but also the FUNK aficionados and DJ’s who will know all too well that this rare 1973 British release has no USA counterpart…

The current huge demand on this Sister-Funker! Mainly comes from the worldwide Club-Funk-Circuits but the UK Tamla Motown completest will be wishing it didn’t, as most TMG’ers have this 45 as an annoying gap in their UK Mowest run.

There is of course TMG 10021975 reissue, sparked by the huge dancefloor demand created simultaneously by Blackpool Mecca, Wigan Casino & Cleethorpes PIer DJ’s.

On this never wilting Rare Soul scene I personally love tunes to bounce back into fashion, after the almost instant deletion of Mowest 3009 in late 1973 this 45 has always, even then, been a real beast to capture… 42 years later as a PROMO in immaculate condition - it’s has become a cult-search..

Click the soundfile, but be prepared to be confronted by some caustic Sister attitude… demanding you dance!

James Barnett

Keep On Talking / Take A Look

The genius of Dan Penn shines from every note of music and every breath James Barnett takes whilst delivering this cherished Northern Soul “Torch” anthem.. but not overlooking the Deep Soul dream that sleeps on the flipside.

“Keep On Talking” intro has got to be one of the most instantly recognizable starts of any NS classic. As The Muscle Shoals team take the drum roll invitation, Spooner Oldham’s rattling piano-work, a burping sax, steamroller horns… lift this mid-tempo brilliance high above the dancers.. but ironically it’s those instrumental pauses that make the session so special.. the horns, piano and sax fusion perfectly pitched for the footwork to glide!

Flip it for Deep Soul supremacy as James Lowe’s tantalizing guitar licks encourage the mysterious James Barnett’s vocal from one defiant sentence to another… “Take A Good Look - Honey Take Your Last Look …Of Me Walking Out The Door” Dan Penn again validating his wordsmith artistry.

Two sides giving up the very best of two highly appreciated Soul styles; From a place down South where masterpieces were crafted.. by a team akin to “Chippendale” Soul-artisans meticulously building tunes that is now sadly another lost-art!

This example is the VINYL Promo press and is of course FLAWLESS!

Bobby Hutton

Come See What's Left Of Me / Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye

The genius of Joshie Jo Armstead shines through yet again, as she teams up with Chicagoan Bobby Hutton to sculpt what most of us consider one of the greatest Soul achievements of the 60s.

Originally earmarked for Joshie’s “Giant Label” release but proving to be so impressive it jump directly to national release, but of coarse ignored by the radio station, presumably the “Ahead Of It’s Time” production working against it. So another major label Northern Soul winner was born..

Lyrically dazzling as the simplistic arrangement allows all his heart-rendering words to hit home, hard. Producing one of the very finest mid-tempo NS dance-floor pleasers ever committed to vinyl.

Note this Promo has two flawless labels & vinyl to match..
