Sheiks - Missing You / Tell Me Bird - Parlophone R 5500

Sheiks

Missing You / Tell Me Bird

Parlophone : R 5500 (45s)

The "impossible" 1966 British just the usual google searches will throw up complete blanks for this store beyond rare copy Parlophone release.

Silky harmonies, with deliciously quirky

A four or five man group from Portugal with a fabulous command of the English language and a deftness of silky harmony. Click the soundfile and prepare to be entranced. By the naive vocals, with an off-key delivery, which are actually this 45's attraction. Accomplished plectrum work decorated the verses. and it works brilliantly; in no time at all you'll be hooked by bit's unique makeup.

The flipside has an even more naive flow to it. the lead vocal starts to off making you wince, then all of a sudden you "get it". As it creeps under your skin, the guitar earworm accompaniment opens up hairlines in your structure for this unusual song to bury itself in to. it is actually very darn right addictive. (I'm now on my 4th. consecutive play!)

A cult 45 that only those who dig very deep know anything about. A record that rewards your curiosity two times over.

Ernest Wilson / Sir Harry - My Elusive Dreams / Hee Cup - Crab 42

Ernest Wilson

My Elusive Dreams / Hee Cup

Crab : 42 (45s)

Ernest "Fitzroy" Wilson, delivers a great Reggae revamps of Curly Putnam & Bill Sherrill C/W classic so many great artists have recorded. Including the Northern Soul deconstruction that is considered a timeless classic by Moses & Joshiua Dillard.

Likewise Ernest's version is an uplift dance remake of that Moses & Joshua rendition. and totally rebuilt from the Rusty Draper release on Monument in 1967.

Uplifting, inspiring 1969 classic style dance Reggae - refreshing indeed.

Whilst the flipside by Sir Harry "Hee Cup" is a Skinhead dancer, with a primitive Wurlitzer style backing is splattered with chants, shouts and rapping that wiorks it's way into your head and feet.

Two very cool sides, making the 1969 British 45, highly sought after.

Jackie Brown and The Gaytones

Ugly Man / Pepper

Gay Feet : 7474 blank (45s)

A fine condition "blank" of this highly regarded double helping of reggae dance tune from Orange Street, Kingston, Jamaica.

Sonia Pottinger's backing band blast an aerial intro, featuring the highly talented bass guitarist Boris Gardiner lays the path down for the icy falsetto lead delightfully skips through considerate brass and bass guitar dance pulses. Jackie Brown catchy lyrics, pulled together by a strong horn break glues this impression session together.

Two fabulous dance tunes coated in insistent ear-worm lyrics.

Chanel 5 - Love Brother / Ol'e Kent Road - Pee 1990

Chanel 5

Love Brother / Ol'e Kent Road

Pee : 1990 (45s)

A slick soulful harmony project from Martin Riley, rarely encountered in such fine clean condition.

Simplistic babbling ivory notes fuse with swirling keyboard pulses, decorated by divinely soaring male group harmonizing peppered with tinkling piano breaks.

An uplifting vocal-group performance, that just soars and soars to a silky zenith as superior vocals mingle in unison. An additive session that will crawl under your skin and into your heart.

Flip over for an intriguing instrumental take..

This is a top-drawer top that is near impossible to find at this level of condition.

Ferraris - I Can't Explain ./ I'm Not Talkin'  - Welhaven 1001

Ferraris

I'm Not Talkin' / I Can't Explain

Welhaven : 1001 (45s)

Small town Minnesota does British Mod / garage.. and do it so well.

Rare D.I.Y. Minnesota Garage from small town Winona. Featuring Jim Grant, Tim McAndrew & brothers, they take their energy 60 miles west to the local Lynn recording studios in Rochester, already building a reputation for giving starts to local Minnesota artists. With several other Garage Bands using the facility throughout the 60's.

The Ferraris with Tim McAndrew on lead, decided that a gritty but attractively naive version of the Britain's MOD anthem "I Can't Explain" by the Who, was gonna be the side that may hit. Brilliantly replicated, but differing with two partitions of killer fuzz guitar breaks, makes this version standout from being just another local Garage band act of plagiarism. A pumping guitar intro, is attacked by Tim McAndrew's young vocal, paused by the first of two impressive guitar breaks, the last one is a real eyebrow raising surprise, with fierce plectrum work bringing it through to the end. Good version with some super-cool interludes.

The flipside is arguably the superior Garage session, covering Mose Allison's R&B Jazz groove "I'm Not Talkin' ". Also covered by Yardbirds but not issued in the UK as a 45, but did receive a USA press. The Winona boys possibly found it languishing on the USA Epic 45 as as flipside or maybe they have even heard the very sought "Things To Come" version of Dunwich.

Whichever version they took inspiration from, The Ferraris inventively ramp it up, with determinedly primitive small-town enthusiasm. a cocktail of delightfully aggressive singing from this time Jim Grant decorating magnificent thrashing guitar work, pebble-dashing the session. two strong sides, covering two 1966 garage winners for other artists..

One thing I love about this 45 is the fabulous "local" annotation on this neighborhood label. So familiar to the author, i was like the author lived next door

Condition Report

Both label carry radio station notes, which make interest reading. otherwise the label display good silver text on a pale blue background. Vinyl has good gloss but also plenty of light surface marks on the a-side, as you can hear it plays well, nice and clean. Flipside has similar light marks, with one mark 2/3's in that causes a few clicks. lIste to the double soundfile lift directly from this very rare disc.

Nora Dean / Keith - Greedy Boy / Please Stay - Gas 165

Nora Dean / Keith

Greedy Boy / Please Stay

Gas : 165 (45s)

A spectacular copy of this sought-after "Naughty" Skinhead Reggae from one of Jamaica's crown princesses of song.

Primitive keyboard pulses lay down a flowing backdrop for Nora's young girl vocal style. Her sugary withering absolutely ideally suited for this risque performance. With her charismatic singing pulling you into her web of desire; painting a picture of a tired over-seduced girl, without ever crossing the lines of decency. Close to the edge without going too far, as the suggestive lyrics become sensual and you're hooked into her sultry magnetism.

FABULOUIS X-rated Reggae of tghe highest order.

Flip it over for Keith uplifts the classic " Baccarach and David" ballad into a feelgood dancer...

Two killer sides, in spectacular rare condition!

You'll not see another super-clean copy like this... any time soon.

Blur

Song 2 / Get Out Of Cities

Food: 93 PS (45s)

The limited edition from the spring of 1997 "purple" vinyl release in fabulous flaw free condition, complete with an impeccable picture cover.

One of the UK's most popular bands of the 90's. There was moment in the 90's when the Brits ponder over which group would be bigger, Blur or Oasis; and Blur came in a close 2nd. even though they broke huge the USA during 1997 with this recording "Song 2." a turning point in their development. Moving on from easy on the ear Brit-Pop, they got nasty with this recording. Some would say genius, the cocktail of gritty garage and heavy rock, with calculated softer moments that draw you intro its web.

A narcotic session of Brit-Rock purity, in the level of condition that rarely comes to market.

Better than anything Oasis recorded? now there's a debate..
