Duke Of Earl - Duke Of Earl - UK Fontana TL5247

Duke Of Earl

Duke Of Earl / 1963 UK press

Fontana : TL5247 (LPs)

Early 60s British albums have a special magic about them, collectors worldwide adore not only the high fidelity vinyl English companies were renowned for, and those protective poly-lined company inner sleeve that mostly can as standard.. It was the quality of the "laminated" cover you can see your reflection in that really enhanced the beauty of the 60's art.

What an imposing figure Gene Chandler makes in his top hat and tails. A far cry from the teenager discovered by Bernice Williams in Chicago and presented to Bunky Bill Sheppard as a possible recording artist for the "Bunky" team, he was schooled in the finer aspects of singing & stage, Bernice then wrote the song"Duke Of Earl" especially for him. It was a USA smash hit becoming a launching pad for Gene Chandler's highly successful career.

Before you today is a serious rarity, "The Duke Of Earl" 45 in the UK never achieved anything like the success in did in the USA; consequently the album sold virtually nothing.

A most elusive platter in any condition, but with pristine vinyl.. we'd say near impossible.

Condition Report

Laminated cover is free of any problematic flaws, except a mild crease bottom right hand front, possibly not visible from the cover images, mild cornertip dings bottom right (see scan). But we have to mention it because the labels and the vinyl are immaculate in every way. Te vinyl I was tempted to grade MINT is always a problematic grade to use, so to be on the safe side, mint minus s the grade. But we can assure you you'll never see the cleaner copy.

A-side features Rita only briefly with a short rap as an instruction to an additive instrumental. The value side is the flip by Nat Cole who "borrows" Percy Faith's "Theme from a Summer Place" underpins it with a Reggae dance rhythm crafting a most impressive dancer.

Two strong sides one seldom seen 45, especially this flawless condition.

Keith McCarthy c/w Bases

Every Body Rude Now / Beware

Coxsone : CS 7014 (45s)

1967 UK of this Clement Dodd session is as clean both sides as you could hope for.

Two Studio One sessions, with the rhythmic top side showcasing McCarthy's rich vocal, bouncing off a bass guitar dominated arrangement, as he sings about everybody's a "Rude" now. He's surrounded by "Bad Boys" everybody "ruff" whilst te lyrics decorate an insistent dance production..

Flip it over for another example Clement Dodd Studio output. This time a wave of fluid vocal group voice, are prompted by another potent Bass guitar dance arrangement.

Two muscular recordings, presented here on an unusually clean 50 year old 45..

Chessmen - Touchdown! / Glory Be! / G M A 12

Chessmen

Touchdown! / Glory Be!

G M A : 12 (45s)

RARE and insane Hot Rod / Surf instrumental in the finest condition that's been offered for auction this century.

Judging by the label design and colour we are assuming this rarity is a Chicago area manufacturing but more than that we can tell you very little about this decidedly obscure 45 or even if it progressed past the "auction" press stage. We doubt that ever occurred as the only two other listings we were able to locate ever being sold were also promo copies..both in way lesser condition

If you seek seriously rare "Tittyshakers" this is manic off-the-cuff session, is crammed with crazed guitar moments, as the team go berserk flaunting their plectrum-prowess...which after a 1.2.3.4 chant intro it careers of at pace to get stronger and stronger until testosterone takes and the group compete for the most outrageous use of their instrument, with the drummer in particular requiring some after-trauma-counseling

The flipside which I relegated from the "A" side is just as aggressive, as The Chessmen deconstruct the Confederate anthem Dixie Land and transform it into a combative dual of guitars, saxophone and exuberant percussion..

Both sides just don't give a damn who they blast out the studio.. Brilliantly defiant!!
