Kathe Green – If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind / Primrose Hill - Deram DM 279

Kathe Green

If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind / Primrose Hill

Deram : DM 279 (45s)

Fabulous rare haunting Folk / Prog single giving up two potent big production mellowed by Prog Rock pauses.

Lifted from her highly regards 1969 album "Run The Length Of Your Wildness" highly sought after and elusive in acceptable condition.

The beautiful Kathe Green processed the voice of an Angel, the figure of Venus was surely destined for stardom, but her recording never received the radio attention they so deserved. Listen to these two Wayne Bickerton / John Cameron full orchestra big building production... how they cradle this most gorgeous of vocals.

Today Kathe enjoys a cult following, as do her rarely seen 7" singles. Especially in pristine condition.

Do not pass by this flawless 45, you're unlikely to encounter another any time soon.

Quartet - Will My Lady Come / Now - Decca F 12974 DJ

Quartet

Will My Lady Come / Now

Decca : F 12974 DJ (45s)

A folk/rock gem hidden away on a flipside, a standout folk/psyche session that has gathered quite a cult following through the decades, for those who dig deeper for their rare-music.

This band's first 45 from, October 1969, by four musicians relocating from down-under, after working together. Three of them an integral part of the celebrated Australian Prog Rock band, "James Taylor Move". These guys taking their psychedelic Adelaide grounding with them.

The Quartet were Alan Tarney (keyboard & vocal), Kevin Peek (guitarist, later with SKY), Trevor Spencer - drums and vocals - the only member not a former "James Taylor Move" was ex-Twilights guitarist Terry Britten you went on to write hits for Tina Turner, Michael Jackson etc. spent many years as Cliff Richard's backing guitarist. The blend works well, picking up where the left off with JTM.

The twin guitarists weaving haunting vibes, through this eerie folk/rock floater. Alan Tarney's soft but highly effective questioning vocal supported by his keyboard skills and Trevor Spencer's pattering percussion,

Strong Folk/Rock begs the question why Decca would hide it away on a flipside, that has took years for most collectors to discover.

Take a listen we are sure you'll be impressed, way above the saccharin side Decca led with.

Wailing Souls

Where Is The Love (instrumental) / You're My Everything (instrumental)

Jamaica Record Manufacturers LTD blank : 4CD 7727 - A (45s)

A mysterious "blank" giving up two fine instrumentals.

First out the blocks is a roots non-vocal cut Wailing Souls - Where Is The Love (instrumental) - on an utterly blank label -.

Backed with a fabulous hard-blown saxophone instrumental version of The Temptations 1967 Motown classic , wicked collaboration of Norman Whitfield, Roger Penzabene, Cormnelius Grant.

We have found information on this blank almost impossible to glean, any Jamaica Music guru could help us fill in the gaps, we'd be most grateful.

In the meantime digest the music, that is not on YouTube.

RARE and mysterious is the diagnosis at the moment

Rolling Stones - Time Is On My Side / Congratulations - Decca Y7172 DJ Australia

Rolling Stones

Time Is On My Side / Congratulations

Decca : Y7172 DJ Australia (45s)

There was no British 7" release of these two recordings lifted from their 2nd album. Killer version of the New Orleans Irma Thomas classic "Time Is On My Side" paired up with the Mick Jagger & Keith Richard stroller "Congratulations" both featuring on the non-UK release album the 1964 "12 X 5" Australian Decca SKLA 7591.

Before you today is a gleaming archive PROMO copy of the 1964 Australian release, still housed in its birth-sleeve.

It's hard to imagine a finer example of this 58 year old - Which for The Stones scholar this is a prime piece of vinyl, unlikely to surface at this level of near perfectness again.

Upsetters - Judas De White Belly Rat / White Belly Rat - Upseters 3438

Upsetters

White Belly Rat / Judas De White Belly Rat

Upsetters: 3438 (45s)

An exceptionally clean copy of this much deliberated Roots recording, delivering that familiar tale of betrayal by people who you trusted, even considered friends. Disappointingly turn out to be "rats"

We shall probably never know who "Scratch" actually had in his mind when he wrote the "White Belly Rat" lyrics, who is was refer rung to has been long-debated. It has has Reggae fans guessing for nearly 5 decades who it was aimed at. From Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Max Romeo or Chris Blackwell?

Well only Lee Perry knows for sure, but his angst that day created a rebellious masterpiece of mid 70's Jamaican music.

Rarely encountered in this impressive clean condition.

John's Children - Desdemona / Remember Thomas A Becket - Track 604003

John's Children

Desdemona / Remember Thomas A Becket

Track : 604003 (45s)

Complete with the coveted rare picture cover. As the rare picture cover displays 7s/4 1/2p would have bought you this 45 way back in 1967, if you ever heard it upon release, as this 45 was banned from BBC airplay because "The powers that be" deemed the line "Lift Up Your Skirt And Fly!" as offensive, leaving only pirate radio airing "Desdemona", leaving it to fall into instant obscurity.

Their misleading "Small Faces " inspired Mod-persona, but delivered a harder-rock, freakbeat stance than their idols. This is the gathering from Leatherhead who audaciously upstaged The Who whilst being the support band whilst touring West Germany, controversy whether intended or not , it followed them throughout their short existence. Although their records didn't sell at the time, later John's Children were heralded as a stepping stone for other groups to take their "sound" into the next decade formulating Glam Rock, proto-Punk and beyond.

"Desdemona" was written by brief member Marc Bolan and you can hear the influences taken from that session for Bolan's signature style with T. Rex. The US release of their album was delayed by White Whale amid protest at it's title "Orgasm"

The fact they achieved very little in the way of commercial success, has only added to their kudos, with all their 45's being highly sought after, especially this one, giving up two strong sides of 60's British Rock. But also featuring the early work of the legendary Marc Bolan.

Idols with the Luca Trio - Can't Tag Along / Jeannie - E.Z Records R-1214 -6-EZ-1

Idols with the Luca Trio

Can't Tag Along / Jeannie

E.Z Records : R-1214 -6-EZ-1 (45s)

Extremely obscure North Providence, Rhode Island 45 presenting this solitary local single only, blue-eyed group fronted by Art Caraman

Local teen idol Art "Turk" Caraman , with The Rhythmaires had already released two upbeat Doo-Wop flyers in 1962. "Eternity Of Love / Falling For You" on the DASA label. Featuring fine tight male vocals, backed with shrill girl group teeners. With only small success, upon release. Today the 45 is considered a great example of the white harmony Teen group sound; especially by New England vinyl collectors.

The original a-side "Jeannie" followed the same style, strong harmonising laced through a skilled acoustic guitar arrangement. The E.Z. label leads with a white Doo-Wop mid-pacer ""Jeannie"" but we are more interested in the obscure flipside "Can't Tag Along". This time Art thinks outside the box with a cocktail mix of early Beach Boys, local Garage Rock and grittier Doo-Wop; hard played rock riffs, elementary keyboard whirring away in the background; then the keyboardist suddenly springs forth with a solo, peppered in a flurry of handclaps, carrying dismissive vocal rejection.

Deliciously primitive as these young guys try to break through... as they make a big swerve left of Doo-Wop... into elementary Garage/Surf. Serving up an interesting session indeed.

Capitol : P-4353 DJ (45s)

previously unplayed and perfect 1976 USA promo copy, still housed in its birth sleeve.

as good as it gets condition for this 46 year old, sought-after tune in impossible archive condition.

Lifted from the 1976 "Reggae Thing" album, edited down from 4:05 mins to 3:27 to perfectly slot into radio station schedules, making this tighten up version ideal for the DJ. Unfortunately USA DJs ignored this recording, leaving it to fall into instant obscurity. Store sales were non-existent; with the store copy thought for years not to exist, promo only was the universal hype. We now know different it was issued but sold little or nothing.

A smooth soulful Reggae session of the highest calibre, delivered by the effortless rich flowing vocal of Jacob "Killer" Miller - top tune!
