Rudy Mills / Bobby Ellis - A Long Story / Now We Know - Island WI 3092

Rudy Mills / Bobby Ellis

A Long Story / Now We Know

Island : WI 3092 (45s)

1967 Jamaican "Move & Groove" production by Derrick Harriott, a tight double helping of authentic uplifting Rocksteady.

Rudy Mills & Derrick Harriott collaboration, Rudy co-written with Derrick producing from his HQ at Derrick's One Stop 125 King Street, Kingston, Jamaica. Harriotts summons up a simplistic but highly effective horn section pumping up the landscape holding Rudy's long held vocal notes. Producing a sense of the music coming from above, hanging aloft in at atmospheric state of dance.

Flip it over Derrick conducts Bobby Ellis and the Desmond Miles Seven on an effective brass instrumental journey, peppered with almost flippant piano notes and drum rimshots, has trombones, saxophone, trumpets all bounce off each others audacious mingling. Drenched in feigned naivety; attempting and pulling off a simple-is-genius jam-session that you will find yourself playing many more times than once. Mission accomplish Bobby Ellis...

Presented here on the seldom seen 1966 UK press on the highly sought after red & whit Island imprint in finme clean condition.

Ron Hargrave

Latch On / same: 1:59 version

MGM : K12422 DJ (45s)

As the "impossible" British press this Rocker is one of the UK's highest valued 45's, unlikely to be on these auction pages anytime soon... or if ever at all.

But we do feel this immaculate, February 1957 USA promo in pristine condition, still housed in birth sleeve is well worthy of an auction listing. At 65 years old and looking like the day it was made.
Astonishingly preserved example of an iconic Rockabilly classic. In its rarest USA format.

You will not find a finer example - click the soundfile to experience what made this rocker part of the very fabric of collecting and dancing to Rock N' Roll in the UK!

Soulmates

Them A Laugh And A Ki Ki / The Hippys Are Here

Amalgamated : AMG 836 (45s)

SPECTACULAR MINT minus condition!

Very elusive and highly sought after 1969 Skinhead Reggae! in "impossible" condition..

George Agard & Glen Adams and team are guided by the legendary Joe Gibbs inside his recently built, about to become world-famous studios, situated on Retirement Crescent, Kingston, Jamaica. Far from thinking about retirement Joe spring-boarded from a successful electrics and record shop owner, into becoming one of Jamaica's most iconic producers.

Here is a fabulous example from the golden age of 1969 Skinhead dance Reggae. Giving up a whirling Hammond musical landscape, decorated with soaring harmony group vocals, perfectly peppered with well timed chants and incantation... it charismatic characteristics making it one of the most wanted, from that much-loved moment in time - 1969. When Reggae was universally accepted as the dance-sound of the day, throughout the United Kingdom. "Them A Laugh And A Ki Ki" was never a chart hit like some of those addictive dance productions and is still today a darn difficult 45 to secure.

Near impossible in this remarkable condition.

Derrick Morgan with Clue J. & His Blues Busters  - Leave Earth / Wigger We Shuffle - Blue Beat 45/BB 35

Derrick Morgan with Clue J. & His Blues Busters

Leave Earth / Wigger We Shuffle

Blue Beat : 45/BB 35 (45s)

For those of you, chasing the near impossible dream of acquiring 60's SKA in flawless condition.

How about this exceptional Mint minus 1961 Blue Beat 45. Derrick of course was Blue Beats major artist during its British infancy; this release being his 5th in a year. In total Derrick Morgan had 10 45 releases inside the first 100 45s that Melodisc pressed on the Blue Beast imprint in he early 60's.

Arguable the most collectable of all 60's Jamaican dedicated labels, that unfortunately were used exactly for what they were intended for. Of course to "party" with; very few survived those early 60's years in clean condition. To find an example in near perfect condition is rare and should not be passed by. Especially if it give up two uplifting early SKA sessions as this one does.

The prolific Morgan is backed up by Coxsone Dodds assembled Clue J and his Blues Blasters, featuring over the years such musicianship as Don Drummond whose trombone skills featuring heavily on both sides. Lester Sterling, Rico Rodriguez, Roland Alphonso, Theo Beckford, Tommy McCook were among its students.

Both sides offer a fabulous example of early 60s's SKA in dream, rarely encountered condition.

The Golden Cabaleers - Come Back To Me / All Alone - IGL 45-123

Golden Cabaleers

Come Back To Me / All Alone

IGL : 45-123 (45s)

A one 45 only young gathering from Holstein, Iowa. Called the "The Golden Cavaleers" the IGL label misprinted as "The Golden Cabaleers" Another aspiring small town band given an opportunity by Milford, Iowa based "IGL Record" = IGL = Iowa Great Lakes. A label held in high regard by 60's vinyl dealers and collectors with its 100 or so 45s dedicated mostly to local artists with limited recording experoience.

This 45 both sides written by a young, yet to graduate, lead singer James Goettsch. The band also had his brother Gerald + 2 recorded it in 1966 "Come Back To Me" has that flowing "Carolina" feel to it. With one foot firmly in the "Garage" genre and the other "foot" edging towards rare Northern Soul. This musical hybrid will appeal to both collectors, although certainly more "Garage" than "NS" but a great tune all the same.

The flipside “All Alone” is a cool sulking ballad featuring accomplished acoustic guitar picks running throughout and enriching another "young boy" dumped by his girlfriend lament. Those garage guys looking for meaty thrashing upbeat recordings, should take a little time to absorb this moody stroller, it certainly has the power to creep under your skin.

Two great sides, one very elusive disc, especially in this tip-top condition.
