Dr. Feelgood - She Does It Right / I Don't Mind - United Artists UP 35815 DJ

Dr. Feelgood

She Does It Right / I Don't Mind

United Artists : UP 35815 DJ (45s)

A rare March 27th. 1975 promo copy - in fine clean condition, still housed in birth sleeve.

The lead track for their "Down By The Jetty" album, which failed to chart, likewise this 45 fell into an abyss and now heralded as one of their most-collectable singles.

A four man Essex gathering with a love for 60's R&B, even inspired to name themselves after, the USA R&B group, the highly regarded Okeh reordering artists Dr. Feelgood & The Interns in 1971. Quickly earning a reputation as one of London's most popular live group's on the capital city's pub circuit. with their fiery blending of Hard Rock and R&B. AS you can hear on this 1975 non-hit, featuring blisteringly aggressive guitar propelling snarling vocals.

Here is one of their most-wanted in fine clean condition. Rarely in 2020 surfacing for sale.

Archie Stephenson with Monty and the Cyclones - I'm Through / I Need You - Teen 5963 / 5962

Archie Stephenson with Monty and the Cyclones

I'm Through / I Need You

Teen: 5963 / 5962 (45s)

A unicorn-rare 1958 cocktail of thumpin' R&B / Rockabilly from the unlikely streets of Kingston, Jamaica. Both sides, as contrasting as they are, written by Archie Stephenson backed up by child prodigy pianist of the beginnings of Coxone. Monty "Dog It" Alexander and his Cyclones. An young talent who worked with Roland Alphonso, Ernest Raglin, provided the raucous backing for this rumbling late 50's R&B rocker with Monty Alexander furiously banging on his keyboard.

We first cover the R&B thumper "I'm Through" with Monty's piano / accordion mix opening proceedings, for Archie's nasal vocal bounce off of, creating a relentless crazy freestyle Rocker with few comparisons, Archie's enthusiasm rebounding off those relentless pounding notes encouragement.

A beyond rare 45 that has only been auctioned to my knowledge, once before. A rather shabby example that turned Ebay in a battlefield some years ago.

But that bidding war could just as easily been declared by the endearing Doo-Wop styled flipside ballad. Again Monty Alexander enriching the session with some calculated piano decoration in the background. An addictive ballad that will certainly catch the attention of the East Coast "Island Sound" DJs and collectors, as it suitably fits their discerning qualifying rhythms and vocal prowess.

Which ever sides drew those big bids we are not sure, but for me both sides have captured my imagination, painting a picture of Kingston, Jamaica in 1958 and the rich tapestry of quality music that was born on those streets. This example is one of the rarest 45's to emerge from that fabled era.

Keith Tippet Group - Dedicate To You But You Weren't Listening / 1971 Original first press - Vertigo 6360024

Keith Tippet Group

Dedicate To You But You Weren't Listening / 1971 Original first press

Vertigo : 6360024 (LP)

A magnificent 1971 original first press in gatefold cover. includes full colour 8 page x 4 A4 obituary from Wednesday 17th June 2020.

John Fordham who did the liner notes for Keith Tippett's "Une Croix Dans L'Océan" CD, wrote in his obituary about this extreme talent, that he was "A Brilliant Jazz Pianist And Composer Who Could Make The Outlands Of Modern Music Fell Like The Most Hospitable Of Places". All this free-improvisation of the piano is evident with this highly sought after Vertigo album of Jazz-Rock Fusion in honed whilst working with prog-rock pioneers "King Crimson" and his brief experiental 50 piece band "Centipede"

Here is Keith Tippet Group's groundbreaking 1971 offering melding free-flowing Jazz into prog-rock.

The result is stunning - as is the condition of this highly elusive album in its authentic original British form.

Roosevelt Singers - Heavy Reggae (Johnny Reggae) / Smoking Wild - Sioux SI 025

Roosevelt Singers / Hong Gang

Heavy Reggae (Johnny Reggae) / Smoking Wild

Sioux : SI 025 (45s)

Taking Jonathan King's horrid bubblegum/Reggae hit by The Piglets, rinsing it clean of all the JK crass squeaky commercial elements that made many of KIng's productions unable to be taken seriously and replacing it with some proper vocals and a meaty Reggae dance pulses. You will soon forget all about the cringe-worthy first version. As the 6' 3" male snarl take the initiative, with the girls injecting seriousness into this 1972 dance project. Sexual groans, flirty girl chorurs and you are listening to a 1000% better production. Flushing your brain of any wincing memories of the novelty original recording by The Piglets.

B-side gives up a unique piano driven instrumental by The Gong Gang with a muscular bass guitar adding depth, repetitive maybe but not a copy of anything before it.

Fabulous condition, British promo from 1972.

Rulers - Wrong Emboyo / Why Don't You Change - Rio R 132

Rulers

Wrong Emboyo / Why Don't You Change

Rio : R 132 (45s)

Very rare vocal-group helping of deliciously primitive J. J. Johnson guided Rocksteady. The a-side weirdly completely changing the direction of the after 45 seconds, after mimicking Lloyd Price's "Stagger Lee". They abandon the song altogether, going straight into real-deal "Rocksteady". "Wrong Emboyo" a novelty recording, that has you soon forgetting the piano dominated ""Stagger Lee" as they start all over again. A jam session thaey considered strong enough to release it in it's original form.

For me the flipside is the "value" tune, no tricks this time from Sir JJ just, just a rattling good slab of "Rock Steady" capturing the very essence of neighborhood cool, with its simplistic but highly effective production, decorated with beseeching vocals.

Stronng tune, rarely seen in such inviting condition

The Riots - Telling Lies / Don't Leave Me - Island WI 176

The Riots

Telling Lies / Don't Leave Me

Island : WI 176 (45s)

Those very highly regarded Winston Riley's boys "The Techniques" who for whatever reason went under the name of "The Riots" when they released 4 different "Rock Steady / SKA" 45s for Chris Blackwell. This one being my favourite of the 4. A an exuberant Treasure Isle production, bursting with inspiring Baba Brooks Trumpeteering carrying the flood of uplifting vocals. A muscular wave SKA pulses embellished with the most magnificent storm of horns, showered with impressive Trumpet skills. You cannot help but be carried onto the dancefloor on a wave of percolating "feelgood" factor that pervades your space.

Top-drawer mid-60's SKA which ever side you drop the arm on.

Flip it over, for even more of the same uplifting energy the a-side has already put you in the mood for. More Baba Brooks showmanship, peppered with shrill background harmony and a rich lead voice.

Two truly busting tunes, rarely surfacing for sale. With clean labels, centre intact an vinyl that gives up clean fidelity!

Buster Pearson - Ain't It Groovy / same: - Big Shot BI 6156 DJ

Buster Pearson

Ain't It Groovy / same:

Big Shot : BI 6156 DJ (45s)

Fabulous D.I.Y. Reggae from the father of the mid-80's smash-hit all girl group "Five Star". Cut this impressive tune,11 years earlier in 1973 creating his own dance recording writing and producing this highly regarded "Ain't It Groovy".

Loosely borrowed from King Floyd's "Groove Me". Buster employs a heavy Hammond background, creating Funky Reggae pulses from a relentless bass-guitar presence, making for a heady mix of Reggae/Soul/Funk. Buster softly rasping voice jerking it's way through the irresistible arrangement. a record that has gathered fabs from botyh camps over the years Funk & REggae collectors are equally at home dropping the arm on this onbe.

This copy is in spectacular condition, most likely unplayed before we lifted the sound file acquired from Pop DJ who didn't seam to play Reggae at all.

It is unlikely you will ever acquire a finer copy of this 47 year old promo.
