Rico an his Blue Boys c/w Prince Buster & The Blue Beats

Soul Of Africa / Wash All Your Troubles Away

Blue Beat : BB 200 (45s)

The legendary Rico Rodriquez, manipulating his Trombone at the tender age of 29, on this elusive Blue Beat 45 boasting Prince Buster on the flipside.

Written by Rico himself, this Jazzy fluid groove exudes the feelgood pleasure of Jamaican SKA gives you.

Rhythmically addictive, uplifting, charged with everything that is good about that bygone era. Capturing those Jamaican musicians able to picture a picture, whisking you off of far away places; just my the manipulation of their given instruments. Both Rico Rodriquez and Prince Buster were masters of that illusion.

Two great sides, a hard disc to secure in clean condition.

Maytals with Bryon Lee & The Dragonaires - Bam Bam / So Mad In love - Doctor Bird DB 1038

Maytals with Bryon Lee & The Dragonaires

Bam Bam / So Mad In love

Doctor Bird: DB 1038 (45s)

What a spectacle that must have been, 1966 festival with Maytals on stage with Bryon Lee & The Dragonaires perforning "Bam-Bam"? Was my first though, but it seems more likely it was just the Maytals performing and Byron Lee producing and backing up the studio session, for the 45 on Jamaica's

Here is the winner of that even pressed onto a BMN records then released on Britian's icon Reggae imprint, Doctor Bird.

A 45 that is hard to acquire with clean labels, die cut center intact, and perfectly acceptable playing condition. Uncommon indeed

This is the cleanest copy we have encountered in memory.

Do not pass by, nice copies of DB 1038 are few ad far between

Principal Edwards - Captain Lifeboy / Nothing - Deram DM 391 DJ

Principal Edwards

Captain Lifeboy / Nothing

Deram : DM 391 DJ (45s)

1973 UK Promo copy from this hybrid band who recorded for John Peel's label Dandelion Records as Principal Edwards Magical Theatre before disbanding after just two albums.

Principal members Richard Jones, Nick Pallett, Geoff Nicholls regrouped pulling in fresh blood; Shortening the band name (fabled to have derived from a Exeter University employee). The new teams first 45 for Deram was this weird and truly wonderful slab of Folk/Psyche/Prog Rock under the guidance of Nick Tauber recently engaged in many fine Thin Lizzy sessions.

Nick mentors a rich array of vocals, superior Spanish guitar picking, a wealth of percussion, heavy drumming & tambourines, with Jethro Tull inspired tin-whistle interludes. It all works so very well. Crafting a top-drawer example of early 70's Progressive Rock.


Flip is over another worthy fusion of Folk/Prog awaits

Michael Rose c/w Flesh, Skin & Bones - Observe Life / version - Carib Gems C.G.002

Michael Rose

Observe Life / version

Carib Gems : C.G.002 (45s)

Rare Dub!

Just before this highly gifted artist joined Back Uhuru as lead singer he recorded this fluid dub gem in 1977.

An uplifting ditty showcases Rose's light but highly effective style woven into a simplistic arrangement.

Flip it over for a beefed-up Dub version enhanced by the heavy bass of Lloyd Parks, allowing Micheal Rose's sweet vocal to return at all the right times.

Hard to find, especially at this level of near perfectness.

Children Of The Night - World Of Tears / Don't Cry Little Girl - Bella 101

Children Of The Night

World Of Tears / Don't Cry Little Girl

Bella : 101 (45s)

RARE 1967 waterside small town Connecticut, Garage Punk.

Or should we say "Barn" Punk, as this fabled 45 was recorded in a barn outskirts of Old Saybrook, Connecticut.
The only 45 this New England gathering released as "Children Of The Night" written by the mysterious, undocumented Kenny Adelman produced by Johnny Di Bella. A wicked, gritty session saturated in despairing lyrics at the state of the world ( some thing never change) but still finding enough happenings in their personal life to take their mind of it.

Least of all the exceptional guitar playing on this session, would be the perfect distraction. A grim lead vocal outlook is enriched by more than standout guitar solo and driven by unforgiving drumming. Which elevates this 45 into the very sought after territory, of attitude drenched D.I.Y. 60's garage.

Today heralded as a stunning piece of 60's garage Punk. Becoming wider known, when in 1986 it was a chosen track on the "Psychedelic Disaster Whirl" album of which their was only 400 pressed, with the reissue LP now commanding highly collectable status.

Here is the rarely witness 45 from that 1967 "Barn" session.. do not pass by.

Jerry Saylor - What A Friend / (Do The) U.T. - Spin It 101 DJ

Jerry Saylor

What A Friend / (Do The) U.T.

Spin It: 101 DJ (45s)

Seriously RARE Alabama Teen / Popcorn stroller benefiting from a the consummate vocal of Jerry Saylor, and the silky, beautifully simplistic arrangement it is woven into. Written by the fabled Muscle Shoals legend Alabama lyricist Marlin Greene. Marlin always constructed meaningful lyrics, this example of his work is no exception.

Teen doesn't come much obscurer than this Decatur, Alabama 45. Stunning label art, a provenance promo sticker with the SPIN IT RECORDS, 1121 6th Avenue, South Decatur, Alabama. (I just adore these little "extras" a vintage label can present you with. Inspired logo-art, and two great sides, we lead with the side I personally like the best..

But you can't ignore the R&B/Tittyshaker on the flip. A raucous rocker written by Jerry Saylor himself provoking screams and shouts from within the studio musicians and Jerry whips up a wild atmosphere. Suddenly a scything saxophone goes off on one, the pianist morphs into Jerry Lee Lewis and the whole session rocks, until a classy exit is mad, led by the Sax-Man.

Two very strong sides, one very rare 45.

But I do simply delight-in the dreamy a-side.
