Michael Jackson - If'n I Was God / 1986 4:00 minute version UK EMI 7" acetate - EMI Abbey Road acetate

Micheal Jackson

If'n I Was God / Full length 4:00 minute version

EMI Abbey Road acetate: acetate (45s)

Serious about Michael Jackson.. here's a unique 1986 British EMI Abbey Road acetate. Giving up amazing hi-fidelity sound quality, from this direct cut studio 7" acetate. Researching trusted documentation, tyhis 7" is fully 60 seconds longer than the album track released on "Looking Back To Yesterday" album Motown 5384ML

It's demonstrates Michael at his very best, vocally searing performance on a truly moving song from the prolific pen of Richard Morton Sherman. The song ulti;ized in the Broadway musical adaptation of Tom Sawyer. A huge production that surely would have a smash hit for Michael had Motown released it.

A super song, in a UNIQUE form giving up spine-tingling sound quality.

Way beyond RARE this is a unique "Michael" collectable of most serious kind..

Ace Holder and His Blues Rockers - Lonesome Harmonica / Homeless Boy - Pioneer International PI 10045

Ace Holder and His Blues Rockers

Lonesome Harmonica / Homeless Boy

Pioneer International : PI 10045 (45s)

One of the missing numbers on this R&B dedicated Los Angeles street level operation. A double helping of California street Blues featuring the highly regarded harmonica manipulation of Ace Holder.

All this man's 45s are elusive this one especially this 1960 release #1004 on this seldom-seen most interesting of Blues labels.

Fellow Blues man Gus Jenkins & Ace Holder collaborate on both sides of this disc, to craft two grinding Blues strollers. The topside showcasing the mournful harmonica style of Ace Holder's ability to make his instrument talk. Deep Blues from the heart, slowly winding you into it's despairing message.

Flip it over the Harmonica again immediately entrances you, but this time Ace Holder displaced mood is complimented by his richly coated voice of hopelessness.

Two killer Blues messages from the sidewalks of Los Angeles, served up on one very elusive disc... our first copy in memory and only the 3rd to hit the internet this century.

RARE indeed

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)

"School Girls" seems to be Tommy McCook's focus of advice in 1967.. giving up another killer harmony performance with this talented gathering.

Top side is a downright moody but compelling performance. backed up with a typically rich horn and percussion laden arrangement cradling a sublime wealth of tight 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 the "Supersonic" backing track.

flip it over and your treated to something just as delicious. Again the soaring harmonies instantly grab your attention as does the economic drumming and it's "simple is genius" approach. A sultry harmonia break, the swaggering saxophone, peppering the session with extra class. AS Tommy McCook again showcases his extreme talents.

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

Four + One - Time Is On My Side / Don't Lie To Me - Parlophone R 5221

Four + One

Time Is On My Side / Don't Lie To Me

Parlophone : R 5221 (45s)

The wave of British mid-60's MOD band culture, is once again drawn towards R&B with this double-heling of the sound. Firstly a rare version of Norman Meade & Jimmy Norman's created Irma Thomas's timeless New Orleans classic "Time Is On My Side".

Coincidently recorded the same year by The Rolling Stones.

Right in the zeitgeist of the MOD culture, this five man band of hopefuls that briefly featured Keith Hopkins, who went on the help form "In Crowd" to recording 3 more MOD directed 45s for Parlophone before morphing into "Tomorrow" of "My White Bicycle" fame...

This was Four + 1 only 45 release, becoming a steppingstone for hopefull greater things for a band, that never broke into the public eye during their different Parlophone line-ups over the next 3 years.

"Time Is On My Side" perfectly encapsulates the young musicians focus on "Soul" in Great Britain during the swingin' sixties. A very worthy bluesy rendition of a truly great song. A disc for those of you collecting everything "MOD" with a killer Hipshaker hidden away on the flipside. A relentless Brit take on the Chuck Berry song "Don't Lie To Me" a muscular dancer that also catapults you back to Parkas, Union Jacks, Carnaby Street, MIni Copper S, The Scene, The Flamingo, The Tiles etc. places and sounds, young teen groups aspired to be associated with.

This is R&B Brit style at it's most convincing.
