Heptones with Tommy McCook and the Supersonics - School Girls / Ain't That Bad - Caltone Tone 105

Heptones with Tommy McCook and the Supersonics

School Girls / Ain't That Bad

Caltone : Tone 105 (45s)

Classic 1967 SKA on the subject of "School Girls", came Tommy McCook's focus of advice in 1967.. with team-Cook giving up another killer harmony performance with his talented gathering.

Top side is a downright moody but utterly compelling performance. backed up with a typically rich horn and percussion laden arrangement cradling a sublime wealth of tight vocal; harmonies.

As you'd expect from this highly regarded trio, the a-side is a tight, wailing vocal group harmony display with Leroy Stibbles again impressing with his beckoning vocal style, enriched by perfectly delivered harmony choruses. "School Girls" you're in danger of being hurt.. is the message it works so well with Tommy's "Supersonic" backing track.

Flip it over to be treated to something just as deliciously compelling. Again the soaring harmonies instantly grab your attention as does the economic drumming and it's "simple is genius" approach. A sultry harmonica break, the swaggering saxophone, adds another kick by peppering up the session with that little extra bite.As Tommy McCook again showcases his extreme talents of seamless teamwork.

Two top tunes on one elusive disc, in superb condition. a very challenging 45 to acquire a copy at this level of "super-clean"

Upsetters

The Vampire / Check Him Out

Upsetter : USA 317 (45s)

CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION!

Lee Perry after building up his considerable skills throughout the early and mid 60's. Made a massive contribution to "Skinhead" Reggae, his output was immense and his reputation as an artist, producer, arranger exploded into cult-status. The name Lee Perry on a label, guaranteed a composition, arrangement, production with a certain edge, that little extra that sets it apart from the rest. Showcased again today with "The Vampire"

This 1969 creation, starts with a novelty "rap" intro (his "nod" to the growing urban fan-base for "Hammer House Of Horrors"), before it crash dives into an infectious keyboard dominated instrumental. Rhythmically addictive like all "Scratch's" creations of that burgeoning "Reggae" era, when he led the field with his unparalleled inventiveness.

The flipside, also a Lee Perry composition and production by Leo Graham's Bleechers raises the bar another notch. Uplifting dancefloor fuel, vocally seamless as Leo Graham & Wesley Martin rebound of each others enthusiasm driven along by another Lee Perry relentless arrangement.

Two good beefy sides of classic style 1969 Reggae, listed for those of you seeking your Reggae singles in the finest possible condition, now that's challenge..

Billy Mann

A Million Heartaches Ago / Just like before

Dig: 120 (45s)

1956 Los Angeles doubler helping of enriched Doo-Wop, two fabulous 50's ballads in "impossible" condition! Here is a flawless copy still housed in it's birth-sleeve

Billy's rich creamy vocal made him an integral part of the L.A. vocal group scene for over a decade. His short (3 45) solo recording career earned his a glowing reputation around the city. He was soon headhunted to perform in several local vocal groups The Untouchables, The Del-Mars, The Electras, The Freedoms and the Ring-A-Dings . Working with early Soul vocal-group teams that included such L.A. icons as Chester & Gary Pipkin.

This 45 is essentially a vocal-group with no group credit. Johnny Otis writing the lead side, his wife Phyllis co-writing the flip with label owner Frank Gallo. With the backing fluid harmony backing provided by who know who?

A fabulous example of mid-50's group harmony carefully constructed in the great traditional of the many great Los Angeles balladeers. Billy Mann is the best known among that club, but he certainly had was an accomplished crooner as silky smooth and just as at ease with himself, to be compared to the City Of Angels "greats" like Jesse Belvin, Sam Cooke, Mel Williams etc.

This 45 is immaculate! you will not encounter a more spritely 64 year old.

Ewan & Jerry with the Carib-Beats - Tennessee Waltz (Rock Steady) / You've Got Something - Giant GN 14

Ewan & Jerry with the Carib-Beats

Tennessee Waltz (Rock Steady) / You've Got Something

Giant: GN 14 (45s)

Ewan McDermott with partner Jerry Mathias make the perfect duo with their seamless Rock-Steady blending of these classic lyrics, these guys are the masters of the verbal-ping-pong.

We start of with the chosen a-side that Giant ran with, a deconstruction of the 1949 Pee Wee King Country & Western anthem give a Jamaican injection, which works brilliant as Ewan & Jerry rework it into a Rock-Steady groove..

But a superior tune lay hidden on the flip a Ewan McDermott D.I.Y. project, riding a uplifting rhythm peppering the arrangement with Sam & Dave precision, with Soul lyrics as a plectrum picks out the dance pulse; highlighted with a fabulous break of skilled guitar picking.. "You've Got Something" is the value side, soulful vocals glide on a solid dance arrangement.. a far cry from the "Tennessee Waltz" laid hidden on a flipside for far too long we think

Auction material for those collectors challenging themselves to find super-clean UK Reggae 45's from the 60's. This 45's is totally unblemished in every way.. as good as it gets condition
