Jades - Blue Black Hair / Surfin' Crow - Oxboro 2002

Jades

Blue Black Hair / Surfin' Crow

Oxboro : 2002 (45s)

Two killer sides, a cocktail of raging Rockabilly, Garage & surf a five man band emerging from just south of the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in Bloomington Mn. Release on David Hersk's well established local Gaity labelfor release February 23rd 1964, simultaneously launched by Jim Madison for his burgeoning Oxboro neighborhood imprint.

Contrary to this quintet's tranquil lake-chequered surroundings, The Jades equip themselves to whip up distilled "Garage" mayhem with merciless manipulation by three guitars, rapid-fire relentless drumming, all delivered on-point, with classy, and seemingly effortless restraint.

The a-side is a standout but a potent rock n' roller, relentless racing rhythms, harnessed by Orbison-esque vocal, skilled resolute drumming drives the narrative - this is very cool, feel-good suburbia Rock and Roll.

The flipside is "the business" also, from Roy Orbison inspired vocals of the a-side, to Dick Dale inspired electric guitar riffs, broken up by the occasional "Crow" impressions, again frantic drumming propelling the pace the trio of guitars give up0 superior surf.

RARE and in superb condition ..

Dandy

I'm Your Puppet / Water Boy

Down Town : DT 410 (45s)

Two great sides from "Reggae In Your Jeggae" man, not the rarest Skinhead Reggae 45 you'll see us list this month, But two neat clean labels, 4 prong centre intact. Only soft surface marks but plays really well.

A wow version of Dan Pen & Spooner Oldham's timeless Muscle Shoals classic silky vocals, irresistible dance rhythms throughout. The Lesser know flipside "Waterboy" needs to be heard more often, its dance pulses totally compelling.

Condition Report

a faint ballpoint initial on a-side label, squint to see, otherwise two clean labels, 4 prong centre intact. Vinyl reveals some soft surface marks, plays loud and clean, listen.

Anthony Charlton - I'd Rather Be In Zion / Id Rub - ZumDel DF 3139

Anthony Charlton

I'd Rather Be In Zion / Id Rub

Zumdel : DF 3139 (45s)

Super sought after street-level Jamaican Roots from an under exposed Roots jammer, with just two 45s to his credit, both of obscure very limited press obscure labels.

This was ZumDel 's only 7" release, distributed by AFROJAM Youth club. A low budget promotion that led to its extreme rarity. Anthony Charlton's only other release suffer on MID-NIGHT records, suffers from the same level of obscurity; both are now considered cult-discs of the genre.

An essential rarity of pure, unadulterated "Roots" from the heart.

With fine clean, play perfect vinyl.





Condition Report

As with the only other copy we have seen, this disc also suffers a little from the crudely pressed, but clean labels, the perimeter has a light "peeling" see images. The vinyl carries full gloss, hardly a blemish, plays clean, listen

The Stumps - Think Of The Good Times / My Generation - Boyd BB-159

The Stumps

Think Of The Good Times / My Generation

Boyd : BB-159 (45s)

Killer hard driven Garage from the brilliantly named "Stumps" from Dayton, Ohio a hotbed for garage band creativity. But apparently for this hybrid recording "The Stumps" enlisted the no so-local band "The Grodes" from Tucson, Arizona to smash the wild instrumental backing home.

The strange triangular combination of Arizona boys enhance Ohio garage, to be release on Bobby Boyd's label in Oklahoma. The long distance effort to get this rare 45 out there must have been exhausting as tthis was the "Stumps" only 45 release, then settling down to the vibrant late 60's Ohio band circuit.

On the flipside MODS will love a reworking of the Pete Townsend "Who" anthem "My Generation" a crude handclapping decorated reworking with a not so belligerent front vocal but scattered with magical moments of cool naivety along with accomplished musicianship and the cool addition of squealing chicks.

A fabulous tune, which ever side you drop the arm on...

Patrick "Scabba" Sutherland

? unknown title / Munuell Road

On Top Records : BH 103 (45s)

Help Wanted!

We are at present unable to locate the a-side artist or the title for the "On Top" blank!

A Ronnie Davis and Patrick "Scabba" Sutherland creation, the pair being the constant driving force within the ON TOP labels.

With "Shazam" being wildly inaccurate with their suggestions, and us being unable to clearly define the lyrics, and have a title guess using "On Top's" Discography.

A correct tagging of this 45 would be most appreciated, if anyone can correctly identify these two recordings.

The Wanted - In The Midnight Hour / Here To  Stay- Detroit Sound 223

The Wanted

Here To Stay / In The Midnight Hour

Detroit Sound Recording Co.: 223 (45s)

Rare 1967 garage classic on its very first label the famed "Detroit Sound Recording Co" "The Wanted" went from a prolific street level band from Detroit, Michigan 6 x 45s. To highly regarded "Rock" band once A&M started distributing them.

The Wanted released eight songs on six different singles, four of them on "The Detroit Sound" label and two that achieved two nationwide release through A&M. That even achieved international attention as

With five band members, all "Grosse Pointe" based.

Arnie DeClark - rhythm guitar, Dave Fermstrom - keyboard, Bill Montgomery - bass, Tim Shea - lead guitar and Chip Steiner -percussion got around the country in a "Dad" converted tour bus. They certainly put the work in to achieve their well deserved success

Releasing just 6 singles on 45 but unfortunately no album.

It was a good move to switch the lead sides, from the brilliantly moodyt psyche mid-tempo "Here To Stay" the label's initial a-side choice, to them promote the utterly snotty revamp guided by Bob Segar mentor "Doug Brown" another Michigan influencer. "In The Midnight Hour" received an adrenaline and attitude injection catching to ear and eye of A&M Records as it not only got picked up for wider national distribution, it was also issued in Japan, Australia, Canada on A&M.

Here is the seldom seen FIRST LABEL in fine clean condition!
