Ronettes - I Can Hear Music / When I Saw You - London HLU 10087 DJ

Ronettes

I Can Hear Music / When I Saw You

London : HLU 10087 DJ (45s)

1966 CANCELLED UK RELEASE...PROMO ONLY

Here is the super RARE October 1966 British PROMO only 45 in spectacular condition.

Why this 45 never received a UK release, was allegedly down to Phil Spector's increasingly paranoid state of mind. It was simultaneously pulled from Australia and the United Kingdom without warning, leaving the UK London, Spector & girl group collectors with a frustrating search for ownership of this seriously rare 45.
52 years on, most have still not acquired a copy (and even if they did it would most probably not be at this level of condition.)

The whim's of Phil Spector through the years has certainly created some very rare 45's indeed, and this is certainly one of them. Even the USA copy that only reach the lowly 100 position for one week on the Billboard charts. (or did Spector withdraw that release also?)

It was left to the Beach Boys to pick up the baton for this standout "Phil Spector, Jeff Barry & Ellie Greenwich" creation 3 years later which charted worldwide and is the version everybody knows.

Take a listen to this wonderful original version, bristling with all the vibes "Spector" conjured up at will... Top-drawer Girl-group sound and without doubt the rarest example of Spector's work as a 45 inthe UK.

Do not pass by, opportunities for ownership are so very seldom

Condition Report

Walrus - Who Can I Trust / Tomorrow Never Comes - Deram DM 308 DJ

Walrus

Who Can I Trust / Tomorrow Never Comes

Deram : DM 308 DJ (45s)

Rare 1970 UK Promo copy!

A short-lived 8 man Prog Rock ensemble with their first 7" single. Lifting the lead and last tracks off their highly sought after 1970 Deram album "Walrus", to create a single release that unfortunately a quick death.

Before you today is that RARE single in the form of 1970 Demo in fine clean condition.

Check out the two soundfiles to see why their album is so very wanted by Prog Rock fans.

It's hard understand how such a talent gathering could only record one album, disperse and their members no move on to other things.. this single exposes gifted displays of guitar, drums, enhanced by a snotty vocal of immense poroportiuons..

What happened to "Walrus" ? after this brief legacy.. leaving with a couple of singles and one elusive album.

Condition Report

Near flawless vinyl on both sides, just a few very light sleeve contact blemishes. Plays perfectly. Label carries Radio Station I.D. release date and file number.

Winston & Jerry c/w Skatalites - Get Ourselves Together / African Chant  - Studio 1 cs dodd 226

Winston & Jerry c/w Skatalites

Get Ourselves Together / African Chant

Studio 1 : cs dodd 226 (45s)

rare original first press "blank" featuring Winston Francis & Jerry Jones with The Skatalites "African Chant".

Demand triggered a 2013 reissue of these two quality examples of Clement Dodd's output. But this is the seldom seen original, in rare condition.

A-side is a uplifting duet, with Winston & Francis Soulful delivery riding a simplistic mid-tempo arrangement adorned with powerful horn outbursts. With the standout vocals neatly knitted into the proceedings.

But it's the flipside The Skatalites "Africa Chant" is the "demand". Typical driving Rock Steady from this iconic gathering.

Uplifting, exciting, additive instrumental. As you'd expect from Jamaica's premier instrumentalists.

Do not snooze, we don't envisage seeing another copy in this fine condition again

Condition Report

Spectacularly clean, almost Mint - throughout. You could not dare to dream for a better copy.

Wade Ray - Two Red Red Lips / Burning Desire - London HL 9700

Wade Ray

Two Red Red Lips / Burning Desire

London : HL 9700 (45s)

Another seldom seem British London, a 1959 Californian Country Rocker with full male vocal group chorus punctuate with a prominent twangy guitar.


HL 9700 is certainly an elusive number n the run. Originally recorded in 1957 when this vintage fiddle player was a young 41 years of age. It had a second lease of life in California on Fabor records in 1963. That was the release the Decca acquire for London release.

So this listing is primarily about the rarity of the # and the frustrating hopelessness of endeavoring to finish the London run. Perhaps the most desirable, hardest, largest label to complete in the world.

We hope this 45 goes some way to helping that near impossible task.

Condition Report

Nice gloss on the vinyl, some light surface hairlines revealed under direct light, as you can hear both sides play great.

Dust - Dust / 1972 UK press - Kama Sutra 2319 014

Dust

Dust / 1972 UK press

Kama Sutra : 2319 014 (LPs)

Rare 1972 UK press.

a 3 man Heavy Rock team featuring Kenny Aaronson of The Yardbirds fame, Marc Bell better known as Marc Ramone (of Ramones fame) and finally Richie Wise, the writer of fully 7 songs on this their debut album. Richie went on making a name for himself as a lyricist and producer within the Kama Sutra family.

Dust went on to release one more album some 12 months later, but indifferent sales the band of three split pursuing different but successful careers.

The trio are hard hitting Rockers as can be validated on tracks like "Stone Woman" "Chase Ladies" "Love Me Hard" thrashing guitars and relentless drumming the backdrop for a snarling vocal presence. Or with the track "From A Dry Camel" they are equally at home with sulking Progressive Rock.

A quality album, exposure a talented threesome who many consider parted company far too early.

An hard album to acquire in top notch condition.

Condition Report

A fine clean copy, two perfect labels, vinyl only reveals the faintest signs of play. Still housed in original plain inner. The non-laminated cover is crease free, writing fee, tear free, stain free. only the lightest storage rub on the top of the "d" and "t" on the artist credit, which is minuscule. I was struggling top find a flaw so I had to mention it. (see images) Rare album that is rarely encounted with acceptable cover & vinyl conditions.
