Chuck Sargent and the Ambassadors - Don't You Ever Go / I'm Afraid You'll Put Me Down - Cuca 1079

Chuck Sargent and the Ambassadors

Don't You Ever Go / I'm Afraid You'll Put Me Down

Cuca: 1079 (45s)

Such a very sought after label this Sauk City imprint that diversified into every genre they could possibly promote. Their catalogue littered with great Rockabilly, Northern Soul, Garage, Country and Doo Wop.
Release # 1079 was one of their real winners from a collectors standpoint. Giving up not one but two Doo-Wop rockers.

Both sides written by Chuck Sargent himself, an authentic 1962 D.I.Y. shot at local stardom and maybe beyond.

Inspired by the best of the East Coast harmony sound, a slow-start intro is in place before it sails skyward on a wave of handclapping feel-goodness. An hybrid of Rock & Roll elevated by tight harmonizing. One cool tune from Wisconsin. It complimented by an even better flipside. Slightly edgier, with a killer guitar break and wailing choruses taking up and beyond.

Two great sides, one very elusive disc especial in most likely previously unplayed Mint minus condition.

Bob Crewe - Water Boy / Voglio Cantare - London HLI 9077

Bob Crewe

Water Boy / Voglio Cantare

London : HLI 9077 (45s)

A seriously rare 1959 British London release, from the man who went on to guide the Four Seasons to stardom.

A huge big-city production, with Bob Crewe plus long term right hand man Frank Slay guiding proceedings of the revamping of a 1926 "Jail Song" first recorded by Paul Ribeson. With all the drama of "16 Tons" "Chain Gang" and the like Bob Crewe wails out the "Water Boy's" challenge, just how writer Avery Robinson envisaged the "Convict" with a desperate thirst.

Chain gang workers come to life as a fanfare of skyward trumpets take you deep into their hopeless incarceration. Mr. +Crewe does such as fabulous vocal job within a outrageously powerful production.

On the flipside Bob Crewe takes on a Bobby Darin persona mixing his big jazz vocal into the big band backing track

Two strong sides, rarely, if ever surfacing for sale, Especially in this impeccable condition.

A London collectors opportunity not to miss...

Rhythm Playboys - Wild side Of Life / Wildfire - Summit Records 117

Rhythm Playboys

Wild side Of Life / Wildfire

Summit Records : 117 (45s)

Insanely rare Hillbilly Rocker from Kentucky, with hints of early Johnny Cash, primitively brilliant capturing the very essence of the mid-50's Hill/Rockabilly. Crude but captivating, with the blending of tawny guitar, violins, banjos the foot-stomping backdrop for the convincing disappointment of Dewey Rotherings lamebnt.

The value side for me is the crazy-strong instrumental on the flipside. A mad intro of kicking oil-drums, begin this Norman Herman's composition; played out by himself on the guitar, to a rural landscape of archaic bashing of tins or is it an empty kettle that that's keeping time on this brilliantly authentic 1955 jam session.

LOVE IT!

RARE in the extreme and probably the gatherings only 45, I can't find another disc made by this Central City team from Kentucky!

Phyllis Dillon / Tommy McCook - Midnight Confessions / Midnight (version) - Treasure Isle TI 7070

Phyllis Dillon / Tommy McCook

Midnight Confessions / Midnight (version)

Treasure Isle : TI 7070 (45s)

Phyllis Dillon takes the Lou Josie song made famous in 1969 by "The Grassroots" on Dunhill. This 1972 take, wraps the song up in an highly effective Tommy McCook Reggae arrangement. Phyllis the covet front girl for Duke Reid's label again impresses with her cultured voice. she rides mid-paced guitar pulses decorated with timely blasts of brass. Great laid back version of the rasping "Grassroots" ABC take that received Northern Soul attention during the early 70's.

This impressive instrumental flipside is so typically "McCook" with precise instrumentation of dance pulses, with distant horns hovering aloft. Occasional vocal chorus from Phyllis upscaling the stripped back version, whilst reminding us of Treasure Isle main-girl vocalist's silky throat.

Two strong sides in rarely seen clean condition.

Chesmann Square - Circles ( Instant Party )  / Try - Lion Records 1002

Chesmann Square

Circles ( Instant Party ) / Try

Lion Records : 1002 (45s)

Chesmann Square, made up of 3 members of the local Hodgden family, Gary, Ron Steve, & + friend Jim McAllister. 4 local Kansas City boys, with an highly regarded 1969 session that became with their one and only single release.

A fabulous reworking of Pete Townsend's 1966 composition "Circles" considered a "Who" attitude saturated masterpiece way ahead of its time, opening the way for the Psychedelic Rock era the swamp the UK scene. . also famously covered by The Fleur De Lys on Immediate. The Who original "Circles" end up with two titles and two slightly different versions as The Who broke away from producer Shel Talmy's contract. Into the guidance of Kit Lambert. Apparently while they were in litigation with Talmy, they re-recorded "Circles" as "Instant Party", with Kit Lambert producing.

Local 1969 Kansas tribute to this great song quotes both titles in the credit "Circles ( Instant Party )" Take listen to a very worthy version featuring spectacular guitar work, accomplished percussion and t8ight harmony vocals.

The flipside "Try" is a dreamy / trippy acoustic stroller, reminiscent of The Nazz.

Two great local sides, becoming harder and harder to find.

Two clean labels, vinyl although visually has multiple light surface marks, plays beautifully clean, listen to the double soundfile lifted directly off this disc. NOTE please bid as if there were no picture cover, the picture cover has a hole punched through, see images. it's nice to have with it, but we don't consider it carries much added value with that significant flaw.

Royals / Cannoball Bryan Trio - Never See Come See  / Jumping Jack - Amalgamated AMG 831

Royals / Cannoball Bryan Trio

Never See Come See / Jumping Jack

Amalgamated : AMG 831 (45s)

A prolific highly rated vocal harmony group let by Roy Anthony Cousins. with "Harry" Johnson the first incarnation of The Royals in 1964 with Errol Green, "Harry" Johnson, Trevor McFarlane, Maurice Johnson and Roy Cousins making up the harmony quartet. This line-up would change many times through the years but their consistency for flowing tight vocals never waivered.

Proven with this 1968 Joe Gibbs session, rich vocal blend with a whirling Hammond pulses creating instant dancefloor fuel.

But note, this 45 is not just a brilliant one-sider. The flipside carries just as much dancefloor muscle, listen to Karl Bryan leading his trio through a compelling Saxophone saturated instrumental, including some thrilling high quality sax-breaks of squealing excellence.

Two top tunes on one elusive disc.
