Alton Ellis / Roland Alphanso & The Skatalites -  I'm Just A Guy / I Should Have Know Better - Coxsone CS 0004

Alton Ellis / Roland Alphanso & The Skatalites

I'm Just A Guy / I Should Have Know Better

Coxsone : CS 0004 (45s)

The lead song from his much adored 1967 album "Sings Rock And Soul" a C.S. Dodd produced compilation of Alton's finest work at the time.

"I'm Just A Guy" is a gloriously soulful Rock Steady cruiser, considerate horns cradle Alton's stunning voice. A leisurely stroll elevated by silky smooth vocal harmony, with the bar raising once again when an adorable instrumental break slides into place!

A beautiful song right up there with the very finest of its kind to emerge from the hybrid Rock Steady/Soul era, so brilliantly showcased by Alton Ellis, Jackie Edwards, Ken Boothe etc.

The flipside is another instrumental example of the magic Roland Alphonso & The Skatalites conjure up every time they enter the studio..

Two really "cool" sides - we just adore them both.

Gregory Isaacs / Progressive All Stars – Hand Cuff / version - Progress 2024

Gregory Isaacs / Progressive All Stars

Hand Cuff / version

Progress : 2024 (45s)

Hard to find 1977 Roots, written & produced Gregory Isaacs himself; partnered as usual on the Progress label by C. Williams the pairing conjuring up a percussion packed stroller, decorated with aerial horns and pattering bongos, elevated by Gregory's smooth vocal.

Sweet, lingering vocals meander through the echoing arrangement as it seems to ricochets of every wall in the studio.

Great laid back, really cool Roots from a man at the top of his game.

Check out the condition report, this a fine clean copy.

Condition Report

Other than some light age-browning on the flipside label, a-side label is clean. Exceptional vinyl, full gloss giving up just a few minuscule blemishes when angled under light.

Joe White ‎/ Wa-Don-– You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine / Bionic Man (version) - Wadada WAD 301

Joe White ‎/ Wa-don-ians

You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine / Bionic Man (version)

Wadada : WAD 301 (45s)

Rare and sought after original 1978 UK press, with the authentic first "version" Bionic Man on the flipside, unlike the two later reissues on "Selah Wadada" from the UK and later Japan.

This is the powerhouse FEWE production first take on the Lou Rawls "Sound Of Philadelphia" dance anthem "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine". A Philly classic given the Joe White softly growling vocal makeover with an irresistible pumping keyboard backdrop that instantly ignites intentions for dance.

Noting this is not the limited 2011 "Selah Wadada" UK reissue or the 2015 Japanese limited edition counterpart..

This is a mighty mint minus 1978 first press, beautifully showcasing Joe White's purring gravel-coated soulful throat, decorated with shrill girl group choruses, a stunning must-own rendition. Sweet girls, persuasive piano and percussion driving the narrative - a fabulously addictive version.

Condition Report

Hunger! - Colors / Mind Machine - Public 1001 DJ

Hunger!

Colors / Mind Machine

Public : 1001 (45s)

Rare North West trippy Garage in spectacular condition!

Changing their identity from "The Touch" who earlier released a fine record on "Public", leading with "No Shame" a mild but competent rock shaker; but angrier flipside "Not So Fine" was harder edged garage, that paved the way to these two wild Psychedelic Rock outbursts, inspired by The Doors and The Strawberry Alarm Clock; the motivation for this six man gathering to relocate in California, where they made a name for themselves on Sunset Strip, ironically opening for "The Doors". Their minor success spawned an album an album on "Void" which featured the crazed "Mind Machine" whilst "Colors" remained 7" single only. Until the specialist Italian label "Akarma" featured both "Colors & Mind Machine" to meet the demand global demand for their now recognised heavy duty recordings". ,

This double helping of Psychedelic Rock was mastered by Mastered by Marty Cerf, a close associate with Kim Fowley; their signatures run through both songs.

Highly sought after 45, in this standout condition, very hard to find!
