Mark Loyd - She Said No / Every Body Tries - Parlophone R 5332 DJ

Mark Loyd

She Said No / Every Body Tries

Parlophone : R 5332 DJ (45s)

Rare 1965 British Demo giving up a MOD/Northern Soul dance track on the flipside. Whilst the A-side heads the disc up with a John Carter / Kenny Lewis mid-tempo groove capturing the very essence of 1965.

One of three Parlophone singles Mark Loyd cut under he guidance of former Monotones member Brain Alexander, the man who gave us "When I'm Gonna Find Her" The trio of Alexander, Loyd & Jack Dorsey certainly had a feel for "Soul" running through their music, an influence of MOD culture where Soul/R&B was their main music passion ad Jack Dorsey's Trumpet playing enriching the sessions.

Mid 60's Britain certainly created some fine dance variations on that theme. It was only backtracking the British 60's 45s through the 70's that these "lost gems" were uncovered, most never received Radio station airtime, causing great tunes and strong artists to fall into total obscurity.

Check out "She Said No" a very elusive 45 that mirrors "When I'm Gonna Find Her" it too delivers everything the "MOD" and the British "Soul" collectors are seeking..

This 45 is so much more than just a beckoning big RED "A", the music is captivating also.

Beatin' Rhythm - Soul Fanzines issue from 1 to 16 - The Full Set

Beatin' Rhythm

Soul Fanzines issue from 1 to 16 - The Full Set / Full Set Of Beatin' Rhythm

Beatin' Rhythm: 1 to 16 (Book)

There's nothing quite like a dedicated fanzine to take you back to the days when pre-www. the only source of underground Soul information was a bar stool conversation under the weight of blaring music, a telephone chat with a mate, a mooch around Saturday's Record Fair or the anticipated all-nighter on a Saturday, then you had to recall it all through the week.. no easy task.

So these British D.I.Y. periodicals were an essential tool to keep you ahead of the game, subscription was vital. The is example "BEATIN' RHYTHM" underlines the passion and dedication required for the bedroom journalist to meet deadlines and keep the readership going with interesting facts and writing. Some of these fanzines only lasted a few issues... before fading away. This one "Beatin' Rhythm" put out fully 16 issues..full of desirable rare label scans of sought after discs. Record & CD reviews, Soul gossip, artist interviews, discographies and much more. More than enough to keep you going until the next issue dropped through your letter box.

Collectors of Soul writings Books, Magazines, Fanzines. Beatin' Rhythm encapsulates an era, you could not acquire a finer independent publication covering the barren years of Rare Soul through the 90's a period not documented in depth, the historical value within these pages is immense.

It's all skillfully documented here within the completeness of these 16 issues..

To be able to buy 16 issues in fine clean condition in ONE HIT is a rare thing indeed to own the FULL SET.

Do not pass by this mountain of Soul annals.. it is highly unlikely to happen again..

Condition Report

All copies are clean no tears, stains, writing or loose pages. All 16 are sturdy and flaw-free excellent condition

Denzil Dennis - I Guess I'd Better S tart Believing / When Will You Ever Learn - Mary Lynn 100

Denzil Dennis

I Guess I'd Better Start Believing / When Will You Ever Learn

Mary Lynn : 100 (45s)

Very Obscure 1970 British press from the Mary Lynn team..

The prolific Denzil Dennis with his rarest UK 45, I've only ever witnessed it's Jamaican counterpart as a Test Press. So this is an elusive 45 indeed, with trying to establish who Mary Lyn is as only added to the mystery.

The top side benefits from a shrill mixed vocal chorus and Denzil's seamless vocal riding a muscular dance backing track. Persistent choruses will have you joining as the arrangement goes strength to strength.
Good tune....

Flip it over for "When Will You Ever Learn" which we don't believe feature on the Jamaican test press. The backing track is similar in construction to the a-side; a little more cultured without the persistent choruses and a steadier rhythm but losing none of it's charm..

A tough record to find, for which we can add very little than the blatantly obvious fact, is when will encounter another of the 1970 private press?

The Who - Bucket "T" / Run Run Run - Polydor 59 064 germany

Who

Bucket "T" / Run Run Run

Polydor: 59 064 (45s)

Unissued in the UK, taken from the 1966 UK EP "Ready, Steady Who" no British 45 was ever issued.

Whilst "Bucket "T" " is very unlike the Who's direction in 1966, the flipside "Run, Run, Run" is classic style "Who" a guitar laden Peter Townsend composition that was to lead track for their
"A Quick One" album released on Reaction 593 002 in 1966.

Polydor obviously considered "Bucket "T" " right for the German market, whilst it was weak by "Who" standard, whilst "Run, Run, Run" is quintessential "Who"

This rare German press comes complete with great riverside pose of the four, with the controversial Keith Moon ironically wearing a "Beatles" tee-shirt.

A fabulous picture of the band and one hard disc to find in such clean condition.

Condition Report

A fine clean copy strong ex+ a few very minor sleeve contact hairlines, plays flawless (listen) When angle in the light, a tiny area at the edge has a finely speckle sheen which was most likely done in the heat of the original pressing process; as it hard to see and does not affect play. Both labeks are mint minus, 3 prong small hole center is fully intact.<br /> <br /> The picture cover is free of tears, rips, sticker or writing. There is a very mild water stain on the back, tiny light browning to the right of Roger Daltry's head (see scan) otherwise this gloss finish cover is a superb example.

Mixed Generation Enterprize - Take To The Sky / Feel So Good Inside - Blastoff 175

Mixed Generation Enterprize

Take To The Sky / Feel So Good Inside

Blastoff : 175 (45s)

Seriously RARE New England D.I.Y. private press Modern Soul Funk infused dancer, that very few DJ's can boast of owning. Soul Sam spin, perched and ready to fly as it's perfect for the European scene qualities seep from every note. An Earth, Wind and Fire inspired dancer crafted by two "unknowns".

Rare in the extreme and dripping with "Blastoff" potential. Intricate guitar riff make for an easy opening, then the subtle horns pout and blow. The group then take shape with soaring harmony and searing voices punctuating the song.. the long vocal note holding, is very reminiscent of an Earth Wind and Fire production, with EWF style stabbing horns, wah-wah and shrill screaming when required. This is very impressive Rare Soul Dance near 5 minutes of a compelling fusion of Soul, Funk and Jazz..which only a few DJ are able to play.

Flip it over and the "Mixed Generation Enterprize " lead you into contrasting but equally impressive Soul territory, as they deliver the Sweetest of Lowrider harmony, as an icy-cold falsetto is cradled by a silky arrangement of sexy-sax and silken harmonies. The lilting stroll of harmony propelled by the gentlest of piano tinkles and a most considerate saxophonist who enriches the background. A wealth of male vocals seamlessly fuse into one curtain of Soul.. this is Sweet Soul at it's most convincing..

Two truly Brilliant sides, one extremely RARE disc from Connecticut.

Condition Report

Two clean labels, both sides of the vinyl have some light hairline, a mild tiny scuff here and there. But it plays an impressive loud, clean & true. Check out the two full soundfiles attached.

Crystals

I Wonder / Little Boy

London : HLU 9852 DJ (45s)

RARE and flawless 1964 British DEMO as the decidedly attractive white label with the iconic big slate-blue "A". An astonishing vinyl condition of MINT

Extremely RARE in this format our first copy this century even rare in this "impossible state.

Another standout New York collaboration between Phil Spector, Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry & Jack "Specs" Nitsche

Most important fact about this listing, "I WONDER" never received a USA release, whilst "Little Boy" did on Philles 119 the same year.

So avid USA "Spector" fans you may well own the store release variation of "I Wonder" but this PROMO copy believe me in this condition is Unicorn-Rare.

Condition Report

two perfect labels, Decca's in-house running time stampings are in an unusual "pink" and very light, A-side you can hardly see 245 (a bonus) flipside 300 is only marginally more obvious. Vinyl is MINT nowe there';s a grade so rare when reviewing 60's British release, this disc other than this files recording looks UNPLAYED!

Billy Woods - Let Me Make You Happy - Sussex SUX 213 DJ

Billy Woods

Let Me Make You Happy / That Was The Love That Was

Sussex: SUX 213 DJ (45s)

A LEGENDARY DISC! With unparalleled provenance of elusivity. Most collectors will go to their grave not ever being able to say they have ever owned this 45..

One of the 10 only copies known of this 1971 creation, most of those 10 have been decimated by years of casual Northern Soul turntable abuse, which I'm sure would never have happened if anyone could have envisaged the extreme rarity that this classic mid-seventies Northern Soul anthem would turn out to be.

8 initially found in the mid-70's since then only TWO to my knowledge have been added to that original count in all of those 40 years; remembering in that time with 100's of thousands of intensive record digs, with this 45 at the forefront of the minds of those relentless USA bound vinyl-diggin'-hoards.

From personal experience I know of two that are cracked, three that hiss loudly throughout.. I've only experienced two copies that play unflawed..There are only two that seem to play totally clean and both I presume were post, the original "find"

This listing is one of the top-end ones, with only a light styrene scorch on the entry to the run in NOT THE PLAY SURFACE for more than a split second, then everything is fine, light styrene fuzz in places but NO persistent hiss like 50% of it's brothers suffer from.


Condition Report

Visually Excellent, both labels are clean. Take time to listen to the whole soundfile which reveals this copy we feel, sits in the top five copies known to exist..

Shane Martin

I Need You / You're So Young

Epic: 5-10384 DJ (45s)

Is Artie Schroeck the uncrowned Prince of crafted superior blue-eyed Northern Soul.

Uncrowned because nobody ever utters his name in NS conversations, even though to guided one of Northern Soul greatest ever dance surprises in the form of Paul Anka's - Can't Help Loving You - which tyoday still stands of the greatest "white" offering ever to Northern Soul, closely followed by The Four Seasons - I'm Gonna Change - Artie sure knew how to make rexplosive Northern Soul.

Here's another uncompromising NS Juggernaut from his desk, this time not so upbeat but just as enduring as the earlier mentioned examples of his input.

His trade marks driving beat, zipping string and upfront vocal all add up to Northern Soul floor-filling ANTHEM!


Condition Report

Vince Apollo - I Bear Witness / I Can't Turn My Back - Pentagon 1112

Vince Apollo

I Bear Witness / I Can't Turn My Back

Pentagon : 1112 (45s)

From the same stable as Bernie Williams, Gene Woodbury, Casinos & Dynamic Three etc. comes this Northern Soul Philly-Prowler..

A magnificent booming, big-bollock vocal from the mysterious Vince Appollo, who I think may have also recorded under the names Joe Adams and Lawson James whilst crafting releases for this highly regarded Philly indie outfit.

A label that consistently produced impressive big productions, which Joe Stevenson liberally enriched with a honkin' horns and squealing sisters, adding handpicked rumbling-raw lead vocal. You get truly impressive, magnificently-muscular Northern Soul time and time again.

This is a record that just keeps on giving, from the blasting brass into, a yelping Saxophone peppers the proceedings. The Okay Sisters serve up approving choruses, as they also do on the Lawson James track on Del Val 1013. Lifting this recording from impressive to brilliant... as everything aspect compliments each other..

Flip it over and you'll find "Vince Apollo" on an unstoppable roll and he assaults another big bold brass arrangement, again riding the Sax-man's prompts...with Joe Stevenson throwing everything at the production.. which ignites Vince into action, as he gradually ratchets up his enthusiasm, until a magnificent bass guitar breaks sends the whole thing into overdrive... a consumed Vince seems to refuse to bring the session to a close..

"Get that microphone off Vince" he's going into raptures, spiting out the lyrics like a man possessed, under the influence of Mr. Stevenson's cauldron of sound

TWO TOP DRAW examples of give-it-all Northern Soul!

Reggie Soul & The Soul Swingers - My World Of Ecstasy / Mighty Good Loving - Capri 11712

Reggie Soul

My World Of Ecstasy / Mighty Good Loving

Capri : 11712 (45s)

Forgive he pun, but this is sublime Chicago Northern Soul Crossover ecstasy.

A much loved drop at all those discerning Soul events across the country. Soul Essence, Tuff Love, Diggin' Deeper, The Orwell etc have all been elevated by tunes of this superior quality as the "Crossover" sound enriches the evening with a touch of class.

Check out those urgent girls serve up the intro, then cradle Reggie Soul's beseeching voice through his pleading offering of "Ecstasy" as if not enough has already been laid down, a flute solo joins the session...

Utterly fantastic tune, my kinda play, perfect Northern Soul Crossover drenched in seriously Soulful qualities to upgrade you set.


Hidden on the back is a slab of intense back-drop inducing Northern Soul, a careering 100 mph out of control truck of Northern Soul that if you pitch down transforms into a real-deal Northern Soul dancer you have a chance to keep up with.. Listen and make your own judgement on that.. meanwhile I'm still swooning over the A-side that is the ideal missionary to convert the uninitiated to premium Crossover!
