Prince Buster & All Stars - Pharaoan House Crash / Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da - FAB 92

Prince Buster & All Stars

Pharaoan House Crash / Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da

FAB : 92 (45s)

One of his really elusive 45's from the golden year of 1969.

"Pharaoan House Crash" real-deal '69 Reggae the original A-side, suffered when Melodisc distributed FAB records decided to promote "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da " which missed the mood on the streets completely. Leaving low exoposure for "Pharaoan House Crash" giving birth to a rarity, shimmering with danceability.

This copy is in sensational condition, perhaps even previously unplayed, act accordingly rare 1969 Skinhead Reggae rarely comes to market in close to perfect condition.

The real flipside witnesses Prince Buster and team jamming a cheeky remake of the Lennon & McCartney novelty composition so popular at the time for The Marmalade. The reason why the label owner were under the impression is may trigger sales...but it didn't.

Condition Report

3 prong centre intact, two clean labels, no writing, stains, sticker or tears. Only a very soft, hardly visible residue shadow on the a-side label. (see images) Vinyl is an amazing MINT MINUS! The spindle hole is so tight, suggesting no turntable action at all. Full gloss with hardly a hairline, only minuscule signs of original wavy-top white sleeve storage. An unbeatable copy.

Chosen Few - Message From a Black Man /  Am I Black Enough? - Trojan TR 7894

Chosen Few

Message From a Black Man / Am I Black Enough?

Trojan : TR 7894 (45s)

We flip the sides over, to highlight a truly magnificent song, and one of it's finest versions of it.

Norman Whitfield's magnificent plea for social justice, first portrayed by The Temptations on the highly acclaimed "Puzzle People" album. Later in 1970 immortalized by The Spinners on their V.I.P. single. With The Whatnauts, The Natural Four etc also in unanimous approval of Norman Whitfield poignant lyrics, cutting their own versions.

The same year 1970 the messaged was echoed in Jamaica by The Heptones, Derrick Harriott, LLoyd Charmers, Prince Buster etc. A song that highlighted the struggle of the black man in 1970.

On this 1973 Derrick Harriott revisits this anthem, to produce a rhythmic version, that many consider one of it's finest attempt to frame the "Black Man's" struggle that still goes on today. Out-tempting the "Temps" surely not.. but you will find it impossible to fault the vocal prowess displayed on this session - the message comes through loud and clear on a wave after wave of mesmerizing, dazzling vocal harmonzing.

The original a-side is also something to take notice of also, "Am I Black Enough?" a Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff, a Wah-Wah driven dance tune with another strong though provoking message.

Two great sides, a 1973 British press that's very hard to acquire in decent condition - this copy is immaculate throughout.

People - Glastonbury / In Ancient Times - Deram DM 346

People

Glastonbury / In Ancient Times

Deram : DM 346 (45s)

The original a-side this 1971 cult-item, of a strangely haunting Prog-Rock deconstruction of William Blake's genius.

and lead with the equally "cultish" recording "Glastonbury" which coincided with the Glastonbury Fair Free Festival of 1971

An obscure one-off gathering of rock musicians under the guidance of Nick Harrison and the talented Jazz nurtured Tony Hall. Tony with his wealth of experience as a club (The 100 Club) A&R work. Was later given the task of recharging the Jazz arm of Decca in the early 60's. Notably he was the man behind the success of Ike & Tina Turner's "River Deep Mountain High" in Britain after it failed miserably in the USA.

Quite who this group were "The People" remains a mystery, but what is clear that this assembly of a Rock-Choir completely missed the mark, when attempting transform William Blake's anthem into a psychedelic-rock experience. Out of tune vocals and haphazard orchestral direction, were more disastrous, than the rock spectacle intended and of course the release failed to sell.

BUT ... as so often happens the flipside is a totally different story. When Nick Harrison & Tony Hall produced "Glastonbury" they had no idea they had just crafted a folk-psyche masterpiece. Tubular bells ring through a rich celestial choir, perpetual drumming pulses drive the scene, as flutes take to the air, taking the haunting atmosphere to its zenith. There are "beats" within this recording, that a hip-hop technician could borrow to great effect.. so far was this session ahead of it's time.

Listen and immerse yourself into accidental genius... do we a possibly hear a "Glastonbury" anthem emerging somewhere through an enterprising prog-rock DJ.

A rare record and the condition is superb!

The Who - Daddy Rolling Stone / Anyway Anyhow Anywhere - Brunswick 05935

The Who

Daddy Rolling Stone / Anyway Anyhow Anywhere

Brunswick : 05935 (45s)

OK so in 2020 where exactly would you go to to find this 45 in flawless archive condition, still snuggled inside its original birth-sleeve, in your dreams perhaps?

The Who's finest R&B moment, with them ripping up the Rhythm and Blues rule book, when they reconstruct Otis Blackwell rumbling stomper, that Derek Martin recorded in New York for Juggy Murray's Sue Records operation circa 1963.The song their first for Brunswick was confirmation that The Who were indeed going to follow the path of "MOD" ; as their manager Peter Meaden thought from his first day, was the Who's easiest path to popularity. and what a fabulous job they did of it.

although initially "Daddy Rolling Stone" was supposed to be the a-side; it was Pete Townsend's and Roger Daltry's composition "Anyway Anyhow Anywhere" that came to the fore, again shimmering with R&B overtones. Both sides were well received by the MODS, instantly setting The Who on their way to their Seminole single "My Generation"

to discover a flawless copy of Brunswick 05935, 55 years after its birth, is a rare thing indeed. and one that serious MOD historians will want to own. After all singles by the Who have proved to be hard to track down in anything to "party'd" with condition..

Investment level condition, do not pass by.

Upsetters - Enter The Dragon / Lady Lady - DIP DL 5031

Upsetters

Enter The Dragon / Lady Lady

DIP : DL 5031 (45s)

For those discerning Reggae collectors who are continually frustrated in their pursuit of flawless vinyl, here's a highly regarded 45 that never seems to come to market in tip-top condition.

Dennis Harris's label securing the rights to release Lee Perry's output on his prolific almost 100 UK releases on his DIP label. This 45 release coincided with the highest grossing Movie in the UK for 1974. But that didn't se it trasferred over into record sales. Bruce Lee, John Saxon and Jim Kelly's fight scenes captivated the British public as did the Lalo Schifrin's soundtrack.

Lee Scratch Perry ignores all temptations of blatant "Schifrin" plagiarism and comes up with a fabulously innovative instrumental shimmering with unorthodox add-ons and imagination. A groundbreaking production so far away from the original soundtrack it passed everybody by. But today sounds absolutely futuristic.

Checkout the uplifting gem hidden on the flipside. A joyous girl vocal dancer, that leaves you begging for at least another immediate listen.

Two strong sides - presented here in "impossible" previously unplayed archive condition!

51 years old and the vinyl is perfect! a listing for those of you attempting the ultimate vinyl challenge, of collecting British Reggae in Mint minus condition.
