Chris Farlowe - Farlowe In The Midnight Hour / 1965 4 track EP with cover - Immediate IMEP 001

Chris Farlowe

Farlowe In The Midnight Hour / 1965 4 track EP with cover

Immediate : IMEP 001 (EP)

Chris Farlowe's first EP showcasing why many believe him to be the greatest white Soul Man Britain has ever produced.

After building his reputation for his potent vocal power whilst recording 5 singles for Columbia with The Thunderbirds, tuoiuring the UK "Soul" clubs and Universities. In 1965 he was signed to Andrew Loog Olham's Decca subsidiary Immediate. Where a year later he released his biggest hit one of 5 Mick Jagger & Keith Richards compositions he released "Out Of Time". This 45 put Chris Farlowe in the general public eye as it soared to no. 1 in the charts.

This EP predates his first major hit, subsequently it sold very little. Even though Farlowe was already a MOD culture icon from his club appearances where his Soul man persona shocked everyone who first saw him perform. He had not only a magnificent Soul vocal, his stage act and his body language was reminiscent of James Brown. HIgh praise indeed for this young man from Islington who was initially early in his career was thought to be a black singer

This listing is all about condition. To acquire mid-60's EP today with two perfect labels 4 prong centre intact, unblemished mint minus vinyl. Clean laminated cover it very challenging.

Billy Lee Riley and the Little Green Men - Red Hot / Pearly Lee - Sun 277

Billy Lee Riley and the Little Green Men

Red Hot / Pearly Lee

Sun : 277 (45s)

A spectacular 1957 original press - heavy-duty vinyl with a etched in 45-U-264 matrix between 2nd and 3rd turn of the 17.50mm 3 turn deadwax. The FIRST PRESS

Billy Lee Riley vocal sounding whiskey-worn, nicotine coated, gives up an penetrating growl as he delivers that indestructible phrase "My Girl Is Red Hot" and the in-house Sun band the "Little Green Men" reply with the put-down answer "Your Girl Ain't Doodley Squat". The Little Green Men (a name reflection of the era when Martian and space were part of the USA consciousness) provide the relentless rhythms for Billy Lee Riley's snarl to rebound off. The a-side gives up two wicked guitar breaks and a crazed Jerry Lee Lewis style piano assault; A spectacular classic rocker!

with the flipside another fine Memphis moment, bridged by some driving Marty Willis saxophone interventions..

"The Little Green Men" Sam Phillips assembled session guys were considered "the Sun house band" and responsible for so much energy emitted in that fabled studio also included of Jerry Lee Lewis (no embarking on a solo career in 1957, which was said to have halted Billy Lee Riley's route to stardom and more hits) Jimmy Van Eaton on drums, Jimmy Wilson on Piano, Roland James on guitar. With Billy Lee Riley a skilled harmonica play the studio was bound to Rock!

If you ever needed a quintessential SUN session to reflect it's powerful presence within the world of Rock & Roll, there's not many better examples than this raucous runaway recording..

Gregory Issacs - Set Back / version II - Bullet BU 448

Gregory Issacs

Set Back / version II

Bullet : BU 448 (45s)

Rare, in fact very rare at this level of flawlessness.

1970 British press is spectacular condition. 4 prong centre intact, both labels are unblemished vinyl is previously unplayed revealing only the merest sleeve storage fine hairlines under direct light, plays perfectly.

Both sides written by Gregory Issacs himself, produced by the experienced hand of Sydney Crooks. Providing infectious and relentless guitar plucking pulses running through the entire production supported by a superficial piano notes, discreet but effective... Does Gregory adlib his rap or is he following a lyric sheet. I'd like think he's enjoying himself so much he's using writers licence to fit in the first thing that comes to mind. Which ever it is the effect of his nonsensical rapping is captivating.

Strong tune, elusive and in fantastic condition!

Lloyd Tyrell - Oily Sound / Oily Version - Bullet BU 508

Lloyd Tyrell

Oily Sound / Oily Version

Bullet : BU 508 (45s)

CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION!

Impossible to find in this flawless condition, still housed in birth-sleeve 48 years old, been in warehouse storage since birth. Labels and vinyl are immaculate. w
Keyboard magician Lloyd Chalmers again creates his very own style of hybrid reggae/roots 1972 style.. by writing, arranging and producing this off-the-wall floater.

Weird & wonderful deep-throated raps punctuate his catchy piano pulses, with all manner of added background effects deepening this curiously effective dance tune. Coughing, underwater gurgling, growling,
choking, peppering Lloyd obvious skill at the keyboards.

A strange but fabulously original recording that demands more than one play, to unravel the complexities of Chalmers invention..

Condition ? you ae not going to encounter a finer copy.

Mighty Joe Houston - Shindig / The Curaracha Rock - Dooto 439

Mighty Joe Houston

Shindig / The Curaracha Rock

Dooto : 439 (45s)

Once again we encounter the snarling saxophone prowess of the Mighty Joe Houston, local Watts City band leader who never disappoints.

This time we offer one of his most elusive 45's a 1958 "R&B Jump" instrumental, to bring down any house. R&B pulses flow as Joe nonchalantly, at first wields his brass axe, scything his way though, each verse adding more energy to his cause, as he goes.

Harder blows, wicked squeal saxophone notes pulsate as his mastery and control leads up to a zesty Blues guitar break, then he's back "badder" than ever. The loudness rises and the "Jam" is in full swing.

You can envisage how Joe and his orchestra whipped up a storm as they performed in central Los Angeles clubs to eager "goodtime" audiences. AS yet I've not heard anything by the Mighty Joe that wasn't full on moti=cation, that's why still toiday he enjoys a cult following...

A wicked Saxophone display on a very rare 45, all in stunning condition.. do not pass by.

The flipside he goes down Mexican way with his take on "across the border" fun...

Condition Report

Two clean yellow labels, beautifully clean vinyl, just he merest signs of sleeve storage.
