Doreen Shaffer - As Long as He Needs Me / How Much Is That Dogy In The Window - Unity UN 538

Doreen Shaffer

As Long as He Needs Me / How Much Is That Dogy In The Window

Unity: UN 538

Again it's all about condition with this 1969 Sister Reggae deconstruction of Lionel Bart's classic composition.

This elusive 1969 British press is flawless, with an a-side that's best forgotten as, this novelty piece of Reggae really doesn't work at any level. "Doggy In The Window" was a disaster and never sold a b ean.

Leaving the unusual but worthy flipside for a Jamaican songbird to deliver. The former Skatalite lady "Monica Johnson" does such an excellent job with the seamlessly pleading voice.

This is a listing aimed at Reggae collector seeking 45's in tip-top condition, and this disc is certainly that. not a vinyl murmur to distract you from Doreen's oh so sweet voice.

Lester Sterlin / Tommy McCook - Spoogy / Monkey Fiddle Unity UN 509

Lester Sterlin / Tommy McCook

Spoogy / Monkey Fiddle

Unity : UN 509 (45s)

a flawless 1969 Skinhead Reggae still in birth sleeve - rare condition indeed.

Ex-Skatalite stalwart Lester Sterlin serves up a lesson in the mastery of the saxophone. As he pouts, blows and puffs out some amazing notes of joyous late 60's Reggae. His manipulation of his instrument is a masterclass of it's genre. Peppering an insistent dance rhythm, relentlessly pelting his saxophone notes into steady rhythms.

flip it over for a cocktail of Jamaican influences as a pinch of Calypso enters Tommy McCook's creation, neat tidy, addictive and uplifting dance tune..

But not as uplifting as the miraculous condition of the 50 year old... so near perfect!

Gently uplifting, a recording that creeps under your skins as Bob & Marcia bounce off each others silky delivery of love-affirming lyrics.

Flip it over, strong rhythms as Bob Andy goes solo, his aching vocal convincingly pleads his desperation. Bubbling Hammond pulses drive the song as Bob Andy becomes more despairing as he recalls his lost love.

Two top tunes on one disc, in perfect condition.

Principal Edwards - Captain Lifeboy / Nothing - Deram DM 391 DJ

Principal Edwards

Captain Lifeboy / Nothing

Deram : DM 391 DJ (45s)

Rare 1973 UK Promo copy from this hybrid band who recorded for John Peel's label Dandelion Records as "Principal Edwards Magical Theatre" before disbanding after just two albums.

Principal members Richard Jones, Nick Pallett, Geoff Nicholls regrouped pulling in fresh blood; Shortening the band name (fabled to have been derived from an Exeter University employee). This is the new teams first 45 for Deram is a weird and truly wonderful slab of Folk/Psyche/Prog Rock under the guidance of Nick Tauber recently engaged in many fine Thin Lizzy early 70's sessions.

Nick mentors a rich array of vocals, superior Spanish guitar picking, a wealth of percussion, heavy drumming & tambourines, with Jethro Tull inspired tin-whistle interludes. It all works so very well. A classy crafting and a top-drawer example of early 70's Progressive Rock.

Flip is over another worthy fusion of Folk/Prog awaits

Graham Bond Organisation - There's A Bond Between Us / Orginal 1965 UK press - Columbia 33SX 1750

Graham Bond Organisation

There's A Bond Between Us / Orginal 1965 UK press

Columbia : 33SX 1750 (LP)

A spectacular example of one of Britain's most-sought after MOD album.

This the second of the group's albums, Graham Bond's keyboard wizardry was of course an integral part of this bands makeup, but the unique chemistry ignited by the magical blending of Jazz with Rhythm and Blues driven by Jack Bruce on bass guitar, the crazed saxophone blasts Dick Heckstall-Smith on saxophone; legendary Ginger Baker pulses from the drums and the intricacies of John McLaughlin plectrum.
Were the qualities that bridged the burgeoning early 60's MOD scene from Jazz into Soul & R&B .As Graham Bond's team drew inspiration from the emerging Memphis sound, an admiration for Ray Charles, an awareness of Jimmy Smith and a mutual liking for Stax. Blues, Jazz and Soul had never been so aggressively fused before. The affect was staggering..

From the very opening instrumental underlines Bond's extremely combative ability with the organ, as the wolf in Virginia turns into an uncontrollable "Beast" of MOD dance.

As the album unfolds taking you right catapulted back into the vibrant club-life of mid-60's London into the very heart of the MOD culture. That is why this album is so very sought after..

Listen and prepare to go back in time, when everything important was MOD!

Let Me Tell Yo Boy / Mannix

Bullet: BU 401 (45s)

Massively in-demand 1969 Skinhead Reggae rarity in flawless condition.

Elton John - Lady Samantha / All Across The Havens - Philips BF 1739

Elton John

Lady Samantha / All Across The Havens

Philips: BF 1739 (45s)

With Elton's latest movie "Rocket Man" receiving reviews like "ROCKETMAN is an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John's breakthrough years". This 45 played a big role in Elton's early development, watch Elton early vinyl releases "rocket" in value in the coming months.

Here is a magnificent copy of Elton 1969 solo recording of his own composition

A fine clean example of Elton's 2nd UK single using his new found name, over 2 years before he hit the big time with "Crocodile Rock" on DJM; Elton and Bernie Tauplin, give notice of what was about to unfold as they write two meaningful songs with classy lyrics and easy delivery. In a style the world grew to adore, as Dick James Music's platform made Elton a worldwide superstar.

To acquire any of his early recordings in tip-top condition, 50 years down the line, is the huge challenge for all dedicated Rock collectors.

This copy is better than we've ever encountered over the decades, and would be hard to eclipse.

Condition Report

two clean 3 prong die cut centre labels. Tight small centre-hole suggesting little of no turntable activity, that the lack of faint spindle trails and the vinyl confirms. Full gloss, with just a few of the merest occasional sleeve contact hairline when angled in in the light. A future upgrade would be more than optimistic and totally unnecessary. A stunning copy!

Mothers Of Invention

Why Don't You Do Me Right / Big Leg Emma

Verve : VK 10513 (45s)

A spectacular find, a previously unplayed 1967 press still housed in it's original MGM distributors birth sleeve, condition could hardly be more impeccable.

The 3rd. of Frank Zappa's inspirational 45 releases for USA Verve.

The lead side featuring the imposing growls of Zappa along with impressive guitar solo interventions. Psyche rock, blends with R&B, bubbling with outrageous attitude and innovation.

The more than worthy tongue-in-cheek flipside "Big Leg Emma" becoming something of a cult-song over the decades.

Two strong sides one exceptional clean disc.
