Rico and His Blue Boys c/w Prince Buster & The Blue Beats - Soul Of Africa / Wash All Your Troubles Away - Blue Beat BB 210

Rico and His Blue Boys c/w Prince Buster & The Blue Beats

Soul Of Africa / Wash All Your Troubles Away

Blue Beat : 45/BB 210 (45s)

The legendary Rico Rodriquez, superbly manipulating his Trombone through solid piano pulses. Rico, strutting his mastery of brass at the tender age of 29, on this elusive Blue Beat 45; boasting Prince Buster on the flipside.

Written by Rico himself, this Jazzy fluid groove exudes the feel-good pleasure that these 1963 simplistic Jamaican SKA gives you.

Rhythmically addictive, uplifting, charged with everything that is good about that bygone era. Capturing those Jamaican musicians able to paint a picture, whisking you off of far away places; just my the manipulation of their given instruments. Both Rico Rodriquez and Prince Buster were masters of that illusion.

"Wash All Your Troubles Away" features a 20 year old Georgie Fame on the keyboard with simplistic but highly addictive Hammond keyboard pulses.

Two narcotic sides typifying that golden era.

Clash - Remote Control / London's Burning - CBS 5293 DJ

Clash

Remote Control / London's Burning

CBS : 5293 DJ (45s)

1977 previously unplayed PROMO archive copy, rescued from decades of isolation hidden away in cobwebbed corner of a DJs collection.

This is the group's 2nd 45 the follow up to "White Riot" lifted from their debut album. A little "softer" than "White Riot" as CBS tried to control the group from crossing the boundaries of decency. But actually setting the tone, with their hard hitting aggressive approach to social comment. Along with their fabled on stage performances Their first two CBS singles were in part responsible the countrywide Punk explosion of the late seventies; when The Damned, The Sex Pistols and The Clash led the charge for Punk to evolve from an underground pleasure into a full blown music-movement.

To find an unplayed DEMO copy of this recording in 2024 is a rare event indeed, but an opportunity to look into Britain's huge contribution to the Punk explosion during the late 70's and early 80's. The Clash with Joe Strummer's belligerent vocal style, complimented on all sides by the talent of Mick Jones & Paul Simonon.

This 1977 PROMO is a wonderful historic pointer back to the halcyon beginnings of Brit-Punk and how the major labels tried unsuccessfully to control it.
Vinyl was previously unplayed, vinyl does reveal some very fine sleeve storage hairlines under direct light. Both promo labels are unblemished, light age dulling to the white background (see images) We do not ever expect to se a finer example

Dwight Pullen - Sunglasses After Dark / Teen Age Bug - Carlton 455 green / blue vinyl Mariano press

Dwight Pullen

Sunglasses After Dark / Teen Age Bug

Carlton : 455 green / blue vinyl Mariano press (45s)

Seriously rare, extremely limited, Henry Mariano coloured vinyl presses are sought after worldwide.

Here is a translucent green vinyl, streaked with blue / green. One of those spur of the moment presses, when at the end of the run Henry Mariano and Bob Catteneo would sprinkle different coloured vinyl pellets into the "hopper" to see what fantastical effects would end up in the press.

These very rare "Mariano" repro's are treasured for two reasons, they were very limited and the sound quality sound quality is superb.

This Rockabilly double hitter repro, which Discogs documents as the plain BLUE translucent as 0 have 52 want. This green translucent press with BLUE marbled streaks is UNIQUE and of course NOT listed.

Henry is famous as the world's most-talented vintage vinyl replicator. A master at work, his integrity shines through as he often dated his work in the deadwax, 1975 in this case. His masterly work often put on sale as originals, they are that convincing, labels and printing often fooling even the seasoned rare record collectors they are that convincing.

His work on Northern Soul classics pressed in green, blue, red vinyl are extremely wanted; with the multi-coloured examples often valued higher than the originals. The Eddie Foster - I Never Knew - multi-coloured repro would achieve an eye watering amount at auction today.

For the Rockabilly fan this will be a one-off chance to own a special Rockabilly double hitter in a unique one-off form.

Translucent lime GREEN vinyl marble with turquoise blue.

Beautiful.

Freddie Levi / Soul Syndicate - Love Ballad / Dub Ballad - Life 8445

Freddie Levi / Soul Syndicate

Love Ballad / Dub Ballad

Life: 8445 (45s)

aka Freddie McGregor reworking the L.T.D. Skip Scarborough composition that became a mid-tempo soul classic, so brilliantly covered George Benson.

This version driven by that highly regarded session band gathering the Soul Syndicate dircted by Earl "Chinna" Smith, you can hear "Chinna" guitar licks talking to you throughout this killer mid-p[aced delight.

"Love Ballad" by Freddie McGregor is every bit as captivating, very soul with subtle Reggae undertones that seep under your skin. Listen and prepare to move this version into your favourite soulful-steppers as Feddie hits some glorious notes of passion.

Condition is sublime, this is a challenging 7" to acquire in any condition, this one looks so good, it could perhaps be previously unplayed.

A real treasure in this archive preservation.

As one YouTube observer commented - "So beautiful, it's on constant replay, what a deeply amazing, moving classical song. Rewind!" ... indeed

Busty Brown and The Chosen Few - (If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Wanna Be Right / version - Down Town 8005

Busty Brown and The Chosen Few

(If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don't Wanna Be Right / version

Down Town : 8005 (45s)

Luther Ingram's Memphis Deep Soul masterpiece transformed into a finger clicking keyboard driven mid-tempo dance session, whilst still preserving the integrity of this much- copied Homer Banks, Carl Hampton, Raymond Jackson 1972 composition. Which many considers one of the finest soul ballads of all-time.

So it is a huge achievement to up the tempo, and retain it's authenticity, steeped in soul, full marks to Eddie Wong's attentive production.

A deliberately labored intro, suddenly burst into life, with spine tingling wah-wah guitar picks, laced into heavy duty Hammond rhythms. As the pace picks up on raft of percussive thwacks, an unexpected cooing choir elevates the session to yet another level. Those girls staying with the session with shrill choruses throughout.

A killer version, in fact one of the very best...

REWIND!
