First Crow On The Moon - The Sun Lights Up The Shadows of Your Mind / Spend Your Life - Roulette 4774 DJ

First Crow On The Moon

The Sun Lights Up The Shadows of Your Mind / Spend Your Life

Roulette : 4774 DJ (45s)

Extremely RARE and their only single and Roulette still couldn't get the group name right "First CREW On The Moon" was promo'd as "First CROW On The Moon" personally I think "CROW" sounds a lot more memorable... but obviously not as it seems this 45 was promo only (I've never witnessed a stock copy)

A record that has been comp'd on a few highly collectable LP's and CD's over the years, but so very hard to find as the 45. Two exceptional compositions strong California influenced Psychedelic Rock from crafted b y group member Jerry Millstein.

You can see why the rebellious "The Sun Lights Up The Shadows of Your Mind" has featured in a few specialist album compilations, forceful lead vocal good backing harmony fantastic Psychedelic moments whirling Hammond augment the arrangement, interspersed with wicked guitar breaks. Driving Garage Rock..

Flip it over you a song not featured on compilation albums/CD's and remains mostly overlooked but to me at least it is every note as impressive. Again superior guitar breaks, strong lead vocal and hanging hsarmonies..

Two standout sides - one very wanted 45!

Lloyd Charmers - Death A Come / Zylon - Explosion Ex 2001

Lloyd Charmers

Death A Come / Zylon

Explosion: Ex 2001 (45s)

Lloyd certainly was a "charmer" building an early reputation with innuendo lyrics highlighting his early work.. famous of course for Bang Bang Lulu, Lulu Returns, Red Head Ducks etc.

On this 1969 UK release on the spectacularly designed Explosion label, he gives up "Skinhead" skank excellence.. his rich vocal riding the tricky rhythms with ease..
Flip it over for a cool instrumental take.. a two for the price of one 45..featuring dazzling keyboard acrobatics..

Two strong dance recordings that are seldom encountered in such unblemished condition..

Condition Report

Little Des - Somebody's Baby / Spy Man - J-Dan JDN 4400

Little Des

Somebody's Baby / Spy Man

J-Dan : JDN 4400 (45s)

Out of all the tiny D.I.Y. labels that spring up in the UK carrying Reggae and SKA recordings this 1969 example of a Robert Livingstone Thompson project is one of the obscurest.

Top side is a Jackie Edwards composition which triggered the "art" logo J-DAN (Jackie & Dandy) gives up a duo styled vocal, with a deceptive "off key" delivery that actually works well with the keyboard rhythm, peppered by an inventive "tracing paper over a comb" sound effect that most probably was something much more intricate that made that distinctive "Buzzing Bee" sound effect, that went to underline Dandy Livingstone's willingness to push the boundaries to create something memorable.

Having said all tat it is the flipside written and produced by Dandy himself, gives up a strong Reggae instrumental stippled with occasional raps of "I Spy", whilst the a swirling Hammond relentlessly bets out a dance-rhythm.

An unusual ad elusive disc

St. Louis Mac - You Mistreated Me / Broken Heart - Bea & Baby 113

St. Louis Mac

You Mistreated Me / Broken Heart

Bea & Baby: 113 (45s)

Rare 1960 Chicago Blues from Little Mack Simmons, well before he progressed into being a R&B and Soul force in the Windy City.

Interesting to note the names Ted Daniels & Syl Johnson in the credits of this street level session, showcasing Blues roots for guys who went on to guide such influential labels as Twinight, Groovy etc

To find this in such a flawless state is a rare event indeed..

Listen to rare Chicago street Blues from one of the city's most active contributors.

Condition Report

Maytals c/w The Skatalites - Ska War / Perhaps - Blue Beat BB 306

Maytals c/w The Skatalites

Ska War / Perhaps

Blue Beat: BB 306 (45s)

Rare 1965 UK press in fine clean condition.

A record that gives up two standout sides on one disc. We lead with the original A-side with a young Freddie Toots Hibbert in fine voice, at first wailing the lyrics, but the temptation to ad-lib overcomes him as he peppers his performance with a mix of chants, squeals, whoops and groans, all perfectly in tune in true Toots style. No wonder he is so highly regarded worldwide as a highly accomplish voice. Whilst the the rest of the gathering ensure they enrich the session with relentless choruses.. that elevate the harmony into a torrent of vocals..

Flip it over to be treated to one of my all-time favourite SKA instrumentals...

Only Clement Dodds studio band could have turned Doris Day's "Perhaps" into a SKA masterpiece, with it's Latin seasoning into a 3 course meal of trumpets, clarinet and saxophone, serving up a totally infectious version that will not leave your head for days. The sublime solitary sax interlude by Lester Sterling? Triggers a blowing-dual between the Saxophonist and the Trumpeter as the playfully ignite one-up-manship that melts into one of the most persuasive SKA instrumentals ever recorded.. one of those instrumentals that you want to go on forever.. or if your a record dealer..immediate regret washes over you the moment you list it..

A truly magnificent double-sider!
