Lou Ragland

Since You Said You'd Be Mine /i Did't Mean To Leave You

Seriously-Seasoned-Soul-Sages will not ever need reminding how darn RARE the stock copy of 1973 session is, offering up TWO sides of crucial Cleveland Soul from a man who’d become a Northern Soul icon with his timeless “I Travel Alone” classic.

Once again Mr. Ragland serves us with a silky flow of soul, incorporating an uncredited male vocal-group cradling Lou’s joyous vocal performance. Philly inspired string section levitate the vocals up into Soul Heaven..

Superior Northern Soul dancer, sodden in class…

But this is the silly-rare STOCK copy with the flipside the PROMO doesn’t have.. click the soundsfile to see why today, I’m so delighted..

Real Soul awaits you..

bubbling with all the ingredients of the A-side but geared down a little, slowing melting into a lush mid-paced session of regret, heartache & remorse. With those string and the male chorus keeping it buoyant.. with Lou Ragland’s vocal transferring the pain so convincingly…

Soul Essence, Simply Soul, Just Soul, The Orwell or my office ..venues that play and dine on records of this calibre as their staple.

May I remind you the USA stock copy is 1000’s of times rarer than the promo press that offers just the single side…

Go feast and have two courses of Mr, Ragland at his superlative best! .

Patrick Allen

Groovy Feeling Vocal / Instrumental

K&B Records is not a British label vista you ever see, you may not even have known it existed.

This 45 gives up not only sensational Modern Soul dancer but also one of the RAREST UK 45s, as it is seemingly near impossible to acquire. From it’s migration from a tiny USA indie label, “Persist” this 1977 creation mysteriously is given British citizenship on an equally independent Reggae label from an artist name adjustment from Patrick Alley to Patrick Allen.

So what’s in the grooves, click and set-free a joyous ingot of 70s Soulful dance. A fusion of tricky plectrum picking and controlled horns allow the stirring vocal to glide on the uplifting arrangement.

A fabulous easy-going 70s dance project created by a Wesley Brooks & Patrick Alley collaboration.. in by far its rarest form, the “Big Foot” of 70s UK release 45s..

Anthony & The Aqua Lads

I Remember / The Heart That's True

We feel this very elusive New Yorker has slept on the subs-bench for too long…

Why this 45 is not held aloft, right up there amongst the most expensive vocal-group Northern Soul rarities is something of an enigma. It has everything required to carry the Big Ticket appraisal.

Lead vocal is right on the money, just enough cracking on the chords to set it apart from the norm, then those high notes; Anthony just painlessly belts them out , with harmony backing of the highest calibre and relentless honking horn section this truly is a right-good tune.

Condition is flawless, PROMO labels are totally unblemished. All this 45 requires now is a tiny reactivation.. then see it fly. Dead-right for today’s DJ sets and a flip side tat will goose-pimple the Soul-vocal-harmony diehards.

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.

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!!

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..

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.

The Darling Of Motown Northern Soul with not only her rarest British release but an eye-widener of immense proportions, a gorgeous Red & White DEMO.

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.

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 …

YES IT’S A DEMO!

This week’s rare Northern Soul PROMO is so seldom seen (in fact never); that we can almost hear the buzz of a few saying they’ve not seen one before…and even more of you saying they never knew it existed!

No shame in that, as a quick WWW search will reveal whole world of dealer/collectors in the last 15 years have not ever offered a copy for auction.

A 45 that will stir the loins of those Northern Soul fanatics insisting upon the very rarest format - this 45 is UNICORN-RARE!! and it gives up awesome Detroit Northern Soul in the style we all adore!

do not snooze on this one - you may never see another..

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..

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.

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

Girls Are Cold / No In Between

RARE!! VERY RARE!!!

This weeks RARE R&B offering is a seriously impossible Los Angeles grinding slab of deliciously primitive street crafted R&B backed up by an equally archaic Deep Sou experience with both recording enhanced by the sweetly delivered vocal of Joan Redditt, plus a freestyle Sax break that takes some beating

Records like this are so very hard to find, “Ghetto” recordings pressed in such low quantities and only promoted locally and never found in anything but badly-scared condition. So pleasing to have a clean copy to play you.

This 45 emerged a few years back from the world’s greatest ever 45 collection and was lovingly stored away. One light turntable retrieving mark, otherwise Mint -… If I live to be 100 I doubt I’ll hold a neater copy than this..

Check the soundfile, you’ll find yourself buried deep in Los Angeles neighborhood culture of the early 60s… basically fabulous!

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.

Inspirations

Toch Me, Hold Me, Kiss Me / What Am I Gonna Do With You?

TOP BRITISH TROPHY!

Dog-Rare and in immaculate condition!

Offering up two top-flight East Coast Motown-esque Northern Soul dancers.

Topside is an inspiring Girl-Group Northern Soul dancer that has pleasured the faithful for decades; But almost 100% played from its USA counterpart on Black Pearl Records. The intro kicking off with a dance-triggering bass-guitar rhythm before searing girl-voices weld together in a solid wall-of-sound. This style always keeping “The Floor” happy.

Robert Wyld & Arthur Polhemus “kitchen-sink” production, matched by, dare we say, Kitchen-sink girls who throw everything into the arrangement. Harmonies are tight, fluid and potent; strengthened by a male-group choruses. We repeat, this is “INSPIRING” Northern Soul.

Flip it over and again New York writers provide the fuel for another huge production. Carole King & Russ Teittleman words are woven into a Brill Building paced Beat-Ballad rippling with class, as the atmosphere builds to breaking point with those guys again idling away in the background.

Having crowed about how fabulous the two recordings are we have to finish with THIS COPY IS FLAWLESS we defy anyone to find a cleaner copy. Mirror finish vinyl and like new labels…

Totally RARE and in just, dream condition.

I Check Mail Box Every Day / My Girl Has Gone

Will we stop raving about Willie Hutch and his myriad of Northern Soul contributions.. yet again the name of this NS Demigod appears in the credits of this totally elusive mid-paced delight.

Willie Hutch arranges the haunting horn peppered backing, sweetened with candy-coated Sister choruses and strengthened` with the production with quintessential instrumental breaks which “The Hutch” just knew when to drop them in and how potent to make them.. the ones in this recording elevate the tune from a beautiful mid-tempo into a sound you can’t help but rev up to, as the brief bass guitar rumbles and those droning horns deepen its Soulful abyss…brilliant

The girls in the background on the icing on the cake… and maybe the flipside is the cherry as another NS “name” to excite J. B. Bingham deconstructs the Motown “Miracles” classic “My Girl Has Gone” crafting it into a do-not-ignore flipside.

Condition is completely pristine - both sides give up premium Northern Soul that seldom comes to market!

Barbara Jean & The Lyrics

Why Weren't You There / Any Two Can Play

Do Detroit-Dames delights get any more alluring than this double-dollop of distinctive Northern Soul… utterly compelling stuff from the Big Hit squad.

From the writing desk of Timmy Shaw & Ernest Burt come two lyrically superior dance tunes, culminating in Johnnie Mae Matthews polishing off the proceedings!

The most popular of these two impressive sides in recent times has been the version of the Thelma Lindsey NS classic “Why Weren’t You There” most likely because it has that instantly familiar feel to it.But upon just playing the “Any Two Can Play” side I feel we’ve all missed a trick with this less commercial but superior Northern Soul offering.

Both sides of course benefit from the in-house Big Hit male-vocal group supporting harmony choruses. But the more forceful production on the “neglected” side is driven by persistently rattling drum-rolls build the rhythm up to boiling point, as Barbara’s strident vocal pitch changes hit home hard..

Both sides are brilliant of course - but “Any Two..” is begging for a big audience revival… perhaps Sam & Kitty could sit on the subs-bench for a week or two so some not so over-exercised talent a chance..

Click & I’ll let Barbara, the gals, those backing-boys and that determined drummer do the rest of the talking…

If You're Gonna Love Me / Love Is

For the second time this week we shall be musing over the production talents of Arthur Polhemus & Robert Wyld - two New Yorkers who have left out of Northern Soul dispatches in the war against mediocre music.

Again the pair write a truly great song of the 60s, a Brill Building styled Beater adored by everybody who ever hears it. Carrying the same magical ingredients that make you repeatedly drop the needle, as the all enveloping atmosphere builds, to demands yet another listen.

Chi Chi MaCauley started her career on the world renowned Red Bird label, leaving you wondering why this mighty Sister-Vocal never recorded more.. a profoundly impressive voice..

A sleeper that’s been slowly stirring and stretching her talent into all the darkened corners of Early-doors choice, Sunday Pub sessions and Rare and Underplayed evening - the embryonic springboard for many a great tune.. and this is GREAT!

A-side is Mint - flip side is EX + with a spillage flaw in the deadwax run-off NOT affecting play..

Time for this to reach a packed Niter gathering - could easily reach the heights of “You’re Gonna Love My Baby”

You're Gonna Make Me Love You

The Scottish Soul May Weekender was a most enjoyable 2 days.. but what will always stay with me was the reaction of the dance floor when this was dropped on the crowd..

or should I say more importantly the effect it had on me… the booming kitchen-sink Van McCoy production, Sandi’s surrendering vocal as her resistance to love capitulates under the pressure of her desires..

THE HAIRS ON THE BACK OF MY NECK BRISTLED !!!

Just like when I was a youngster, every time I heard this record it sent shivers though me..

After all these years this record still has the power to unleash uncontrollable emotions..

Tobbi Bowe

I Can Feel Him Slipping Away / Groovy Feeling

Label art at its most-conspicuous, the little orange-man pushing the “Patheway” logo forward - a huge improvement on Billy Elders or The Servicemen plain orange label releases. This label today is as impressive as any 60s eye-catcher you care to mention and so is the music..Girly Northern Soul awaits..

This is the 2nd impressive Robert Susser composition that has been taken into the hearts of the Northern Soul congregation, the first being 2 years early when he wrote Florence DeVore’s - Don’t Kiss Me Now; 1967 Bobby is at it again crafting girly-perfection for Northern Soul gonna-be’s.

“I Can Feel Him Slipping Away” also recorded and adored b y Mamie Lee on MGM both of these versions are 1967 born, not completely sure which lady was the initial choice of artist - both are fabulous takes with this release, obviously being absolutely the rarest of the two; with copious amounts of Mamie Lee living in all the establish Northern Soul collections worldwide.

So on to the “Tobbi Take” benefiting from a Roy Norman full orchestra production and Roy’s penchant for working with the “Soul” artists of California, the two Artie Fullilove’s on Marlu jump to mind.

Tobbi’s take is hugely impressive, much-brisker than Mamie’s, propelled by zippy string-section, endowed by a burping Terry-esque Sax prompting the rhythm, as Tobbi’s vocal bursts in and belts the hell out of the lyric-sheet; a hen-night of ladies back it all up on the chorus, shrill as hell.

Killer tune you most probably haven’t heard in the clubs because so few own a copy - but one thing is for sure - the DJ ahead of you will not be playing it first. Damn hard to acquire and such a brilliantly refreshing change from Mamie Lee.

If that’s not enough, to have you scurrying for the click button..check out the splendid flipside “Groovy Feeling” which has been the recognised NS Play side for decades now..again very few can boast of having in the their DJ box..

Two rare California uplifters on one disc..

Second Re$surrection

You Done Let The Daylight Catch You / Smoke In The Disco

Hidden away on the flipside of a Funk infused “Disco” dance session, is a masterpiece of West Coast vocal-group Rare-Soul. Hugely sought-after “upfront” harmony-session from L.A. that just glides its way through 3 mins + of modern Northern Soul bliss.

Currently exclusively in the hands of Europe’s most-progressive Rare Soul Jocks. and it’s been that way for most of this century…

Solid, tight group harmonies surf a carpet of subtle horns, under-laid by perpetual rhythmic guitar licks with a lead vocal at ease with the lyrics, as his strolls through the lyrics. With his buddies enriching the session with increasingly enthusiastic choruses as the session swells into the most convincing example of it’s genre…

Horns, vocal harmonies and an effortless lead vocal merge into one spectacular cavalcade of SOUL!

The lead side is very worthy Wah-wah, chanting, squealing excursion into 70s Funk/Soul/Disco but paling in comparison to stand-out flip..

This copy has two perfect labels, vinyl has some insignificant mild hairline surface blemishes, as you can hear both sides play totally flawless.

Bid on You Done Let The Daylight Catch You / Smoke In The Disco

Micky Lee Lane

Hey Sah-lo-ney

Original 1966 press from Itzy Klein’s Pittsburgh vehicle for partly satisfying the demand created by local DJ Mad Mike Metrovich propensity for the airing of “obscure” 45s.

“Mad Mike’s” style and turntable choices soon established his very own comparable to “Northern Soul” scene within the “Steel City” - launching him into “cult-status” and worldwide fame over the ensuing years. Demand for his fave spins sparked “special” local releases and still today “dedicated CD’s”.

Mr. Klien’s relationship with Philadelphia’s Swan label gave him the opportunity to release another “Mad Mike” Swan power-play Showmen - Our Love Will Grow - Itzy 13 which is even more elusive than this offering.

Fortunately for the serious record-collector “Itzy” used top-quality high-gloss finish paper and bight-brilliant coloured text; allowing both these Itzy “Soul” 45s to be authenticated at a mere glance at the label quality and startling text.

So to the music, not only a Northern Soul anthem but also a song that totally encapsulates Mike’s wildly enthusiastic passion for under-the-radar records that he continued to source right up to his passing in 2000.

USA only needed a few more DJ’s like “Mad Mike” and maybe all those incredible but overlooked Northern Soul monsters would have fueled a nationwide USA scene… way before Wigan Casino was born..

alas Mike is considered quite unique in his profession, as are these very limited and decidedly eye-catching ITZY releases.

This offering has TWO perfect labels (full shine) vinyl reveals mild surface blemishes and as you can hear, plays perfect.

Of course ITZY is by far this classic’s rarest USA clothes..

Reflection

A so seldom seen Wigan Casino cover/up from the days when a bit of attitude riddled “garage” was most welcome on those hallowed turntables. The Outsiders, Human Beinz, Deadbeats, The “Q” etc. have always been most refreshing diversions from the norm, as white -guys with a little angst in their throats fitted the “All-“Niter ambiance so well.

“The Man In The Mirror” c/u is perhaps the least known, least encountered of all those many “Searling-served” Wigan 1977/78 mysteries that fascinated us but made ownership near impossible…

Having said that, even if the true identity of “Man In The Mirror” was made public, what chance would any of us have of finding this upstate Syracuse, New York D.I.Y. private press… well, none really.

It Hurts Too Much To Cry

1963 AUSTRALIAN PROMO ONLY!

Australian rarities always spark lively debate, there is after-all Soul-legion dedicate to pursuing every possible “Downunder” release -

With OZ 45 collecting being perhaps the most challenging division of the Northern Soul junkie-ism, every capture for me is rather exciting. Especially this example because 1963 was the RCA launch as a stand-alone label in Australia; consequently RCA PROMO pressed many titles in 1963 to help bolster RCA awareness.

It not only looks utterly thrilling, it is blatantly insanely-Rare and also at this moment, we do not know if it ever received an actual 1963 release..

*we presuming this 45 was “unissued” on the strength of leading Australian Soul collectors have never seen a stock copy.

Condition of ” H.B. D.J. OZ ” can only be described as blinding..

Linda Kendrick

It's The Little Things

Very rare 1966 British take on the highly sought-after Patti & The Emblems Northern Soul winner on Congress.

Quite often when the English covered a version of a USA production, something always seems “missing”. With Fred Lloyd & Chris Parmenter having a daunting task of bettering the Congress offering you’d have thought an inferior take was about play; After all, competing with Jimmy “the Wiz” Wisner & Tommy Kaye doing the arrangement & production on the New York / Philadelphia original collaboration.

Well Mr. Parmenter & Lloyd your British slant on the production is totally superb. The MODS will adore the potent guitar intro, the Girl vocal collectors will be captivated by Linda very first single, enriched by a USA styled Girl-Group chorus; and of course the British Soul 45 collector will be itching to snag this 45, as it so scarcely becomes available.

Check out UK vs USA, they both carry their own unique qualities and of course are both rare, with this UK Polydor example being near “impossible” to capture…we are not ashamed of announcing the fact, that this is our FIRST copy in more than 20 years..

Great tune and Unicorn-Rare!

Both vinyl surfaces are pristine, label are free of writing, tears or any other annoying flaw. Sitting in it’s original wavy-top Polydor cover…

You Can Split / Mr. Bright Times

Our “File Only” over-the-pond vinyl-hoarder comes up trumps again.

In 2015 what are the real chances of locating a Northern Soul timeless classic in previously unplayed condition.. we think pretty much zero, especially as this 1966 PROMO comes with two untarnished bright-sky-blue labels and distributors sleeve

First discovered circa 1973 at the height Simon Soussan blitz of the USA record outlets and the subsequent exporting of newly discovered Northern Soul stompers. He was apparently so knocked-out by “You Can Split” it instantly bootlegged as “Walk On Baby” credit as being produced by the revered producer James Carmichael, on the convincing Los Angeles indie label “Soul World” (see scan provided) and sent to England for an overnight euphoric response… instantly sparking off huge dancefloor appreciation.

Now sitting alongside Rubin, Sunlovers, Frank Wilson, Checkerboard Squares etc. all arriving in the UK bootlegged & given new identities before the 45s real titles/labels were known.

This vinyl-subterfuge work perfectly both feeding the burgeoning Northern Soul scene with stand-out music, at the same time being able to supply the dealers and shops with a quantity to sell, when the demand peaked.

1972 to 1975 the streets of USA were paved with NS vinyl nobody wanted, Mr. Soussan exploited the vinyl-Gold-rush so cleverly, with business acumen very few of British youngsters possessed.

Now firmly chiseled in stone, is the “Soussan” era in Northern Soul history that could never be repeated. A time of totally exciting music, marketed in an enterprising way, contributing hugely to the ever expanding popularity of this music in Britain.

Click the soundfile and imagine what your amphetamine-fuel reaction would have been, having this tornado of a tune dropped on you at midnight. But this example has never been dropped on everyone ever, filed, cocooned, untouched in a collection for close to 50 years. Hoping one day to meet up with a fastidious Soul Collector seeking perfection..

1967 Black label - silver text German RCA Victor complete with the coveted Picture Cover.

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..

Sorry, this item has already been won!

Ronnie Forte

That Was Whiskey Talkin' / Nervous Breakdown

Starting life in the UK as a Cleethorpes Pier cover-up. (I happened to be lucky enough to be the first DJ to play this 45, having discovered it at Al Pavlow’s treasure-trove-of-vinyl in Rhode Island). It went countrywide when I sold a spare copy to friend & venerated Wigan Casino DJ (and Cleethorpes devotee) Alan Rhodes. With Alan’s DJing mastery, it exploded into a Casino-Colossus also…A truly huge tune during 1977 in England as the two most-important All-Niters of the time, simultaneously drop the needle on this supremely potent dancer.

…but it’s life should not end there. As this galloping-ingot of full-throttle R&B is more suited to today’s Northern Soul tastes, than it perhaps was back in 1977 mingling with the likes of “Paris Blues” & “Arin Demain” within my Gleggy sets..

Don’t get me wrong - it was a Dancefloor-Demon back then, suffering from a ludicrously primitive bootlegging as a consequence. A dubious honor for the effect it had on the dancefloor… the point I’m making is, this galloping-Godzilla I think would be even bigger with the dancers today.. and seeing as the poor quality “BAN” label bootleg could never be played “out”. The door is wide open for a Ronnie Forte “New-Dawn”

This copy is a darn flawless MINT - most likely unplayed before we lifted the soundfile.. our Mint-Man from Mysteryville comes up trumps again…

Listen and imagine this baby, booming out to a full house Weekender.. doesn’t bare thinking about ..does it?

PS Another bonus is that horrid “BAN” label bootleg does not carry the equally esteemed stomper “Nervous Breakdown” on the flip. One reason this double-helping of riotous R&B is quickly rising in value & demand…

Many thanks to Alan Rhodes for ringing me and confirming he himself first heard it at Mary Chapman’s Cleethorpes, underlining that on more than one occasion Cleethorpes discovered a few tunes of their own… just a few.

The Same Old Thing / I'll Do A Little Bit More

Currently Mirwood’s most wanted, as both sides hard on the comeback trail!

But how about the seldom seen UK DEMO on the highly collectable Jay Boy label. I must admit our 15 year + old sales data revealed this 45’s surprising elusiveness.

It’s been 11 years since our last DEMO copy of Jay Boy # 74 and don’t those tanned label backgrounds look so cool, adorned with that hefty rich-Red “A”

The two recordings speak for themselves, both currently reliable rival spins. Both causing the jostle for space dancfloor-sardine effect..ultimately pushing up the values of the relatively common, original Mirwood press.

Two for the price of one, presented on a now iconic label.

That's My Girl

This weeks WHITE PROMO tempter has not an imperfection to be seen ANYWHERE.

Well that’s why this timeless piece of Northern Soul is on these pages - finding a “perfect” copy that’s not been though the DJ mill, sparked off fully two decades or more ago by NS Scotland’s very own “cheeky-chappy” Colin Law who traveled far and wide championing this infectious dancer, that at the time broke brand new ground with his turntable choices, giving Northern Soul an extra dimension.

Today of course many of Colin Law’s inspired turntable “picks” are floor-fillers, none more so than this totally off-the-wall flute riddled Classic. Later kidnapped by many a Sassanack DJ’s as it went on to become a nationwide must-play..

Check out those impeccable white labels - they just scream wait till I emerge from the sleeve - my vinyl is every trace as clean..

Doug Phillips And The New Concepts

You Really Know How To Hurt A Guy

The very first copy of the truly gorgeous Northern Soul Beater, we’ve had in 20 years or more, on its first D.I.Y. Californian collaboration between Doug Philips & Randy Ray in the summer of 1969.

The vision of this 45 will certainly inflame the desires of those dedicated Northern Soul collectors seeking the ultimate rarest format FIRST LABEL presses.

In the same class as those lush mid-tempo grooves, that transform 3 minutes of your day into a though-provoking morning. Think Al McCarther, Billy Prince, Jimmy Beaumont, Kenny Sheppard etc.. This Premiership Beat Ballad Heaven..

This delicate mood-changer did of course enjoy a brief release on Atco 6692 but that disc is not easy find, as for this embryonic Ray-Phi label variation.. like I say its is our first for 2 decades..

Listen and prepare to be MOVED by Doug Phillips living every word of the lyrics as plucking and humming strings decorate the arrangement. One truly wonderful tune.. yet to receive the significant spins it surely deserves from the New-Model-Army of Northern Soul Jocks…

PS The Atco copy has just been added to my DJ box in support of Northern Soul refinement..

Annetta

Since There's No More You

Let’s forget Northern Soul for a moment and think Real-Deal-Soul, as Annette Snell takes you on a journey, plumbing the depths of despair with her subtley stirring voice.

With only uncredited male vocals for company (most probably Paul Kelly & Jesse Slaughter) Annette serves up one of the finest most-soulful recordings ever committed to vinyl, as she skilfully leads your heart though a maze of grief.

This is Deep Soul at it’s most-refined; “Deep” that will also appeal to all of you hooked into the male-harmony presence whilst choosing your preferred vinyl. This surely is superior Soul, leaving you craving for more of this blue-chip outpouring of emotion.

I think this is the most-moving example of our music I’ve heard in quite some time - totally rare and rippling with pure class, as Annette Snell raises the bar, of what real cutting edge Rare-Soul Music really is..

Give me more of this style… it has made my day…my week… most likely my year

Marvin Gaye

This Love Starved Heart Of Mine / It's A Desperate Situation

One of only 3 original 10” acetates ever cut by Motown in preparation for their special Marvin Gaye picture sleeved 45 limited run to help promote the 1994 CD “Love Starved Heart”

This copy # 2 of the 3 only made, unlike the # 1 acetate we auctioned near 12 months ago, carries a flipside “It’s a A Desperate Situation”

The 3rd copy as far as we are aware resides with Motown fgor file purposes and will never come to market.

Before you is a decidedly rare opportunity to own “Direct Cut” studio quality example of one of Northern Soul’s top ever recordings.. Totally awesome dance tune that not only epitomises the mid-60s Motown Sound but also encapsulates everything the Northern Soul dancefl;oor soldier requires to be able to “let it all go”

This Detroit Northern Soul at it’s finest - in it’s rarest form and finest possible sound quality and volume.

Flawless direct cut from 1994 and one of TWO only that can ever come to market!

Act accordingly!

Riveting Popcorn / R&B dancer from one of the last century most-memorable voices. The man who inspired Jackie Wilson to expand his vocal range and you can fully understand Jackie ambition after listening to Mr. McPhatter; it surely would make you want to “up your game”.

Listen to a man with glorious ease meander through Belford Heldrick’s utterly convincing strings, zipping away has the silkened McPhatter chords lift the session to a level, that demads another needle drop.

As the USA releseit is annoyingly elusive, as this 1962 release, looking like you’ve just got it home from the local rrecord shop, it is a darm TOUGH 45 to snare..
