Volutones with the Deckers - Come Back Baby / Sincerely With My Heart - Reco-Art acetate

Volutones with the Deckers

Come Back Baby / Sincerely With My Heart

Reco-Art : acetate (45s)

50's Philly R&B dance alert!

UNISSUED 1958 vocal group Doo-Wop acetate "Come Back Baby" replaced by "The Thing" on the Yeadon 7" 45.

A vocal group quartet who morphed into three different vocal groups Teddy and the Twilighters, Buddies, Tiffanys all monikers recording for Philadelphia based Swan label in the 60's. Fred Cohen, John "Odoms" Williams, Larry Williams, Ben Hart achieved only muted success over the 6 years of releasing 45's.

The Rockin' R&B dancer "Come Back Baby" remained unissued, as the Philly based "Yeadon" label opted for the novelty R&B song "The Thing" shelving the lively sax infested dancer for a later date, that never happened.

Rollin' saxophone opens proceedings for slick piano pulses, driving an uplifting male vocal group in tight-harmony. Finger-popping rhythms the perfect vehicle for this jerky dance session embelished with a strong saxophone / piano break before the seamless rich vocal again roll on..

Flipside is the glorious ballad "Sincerely With My Heart " which was issued on Yeadon 101 in 1958.

Dop-Wop collectors will adore both sides, with 50's orientated R&B DJ looking for an exclusive thumper to drop on his audience.

Unique as far as we know,

Prince Tallis and the Challis / Upsetters - Who Feels It / Chapter Two - Upsetter US 383

Prince Tallis and the Challis / Upsetters

Who Feels It / Chapter Two

Upsetter: US 383 (45s)

Spectacular archive condition 1972 British press - as good as it gets condition.

Produced and directed by "Wonder Man" Lee Perry for his Justice League label in 1972, written by Kenroy Crooks. Released in the UK on Lee's own label.

Uplifting see-saw rhythms, heavy dance pulses, with "Prince's" nonchalant vocal cradled by beautifully by falsetto led group harmony choruses. A tight, fluid session giving up pure clarity in the production with imaginative use of the instruments. Which you can be fully appreciated on the flipside "Chapter Two" with the vocal pared back, laying bare the intricacies of the wonderful backing track whilst not diminishing the those addictive rise and fall palpitations.

Another in a long line of Lee "Scratch" Perry's triumphs.

Great tune - exceptional condition!

Derrick Morgan and Patsy - Are You Going To Marry Me?  / Troubles- Blue Beat 45/BB 110

Derrick Morgan

Are You Going To Marry Me? / Troubles

Blue Beat : 45/BB 110 (45s)

PERFECTCOPY of this 59 year old British release.

A stalwart of the Blue Beat label, Derrick Morgan is joined by Millicent Todd, a pairing made famous by their hugely popular "Housewife's Choice" the same year of 1962.
Here's another equally fascinating recording SKA recording featuring Patsy's shrill style, Derrick's laidback crooning as the two bounce of each other on this "call & answer" dilemma of "Will You Marry Me" peppered with magnificent horn breaks and interventions.

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

How about this exceptional Mint minus 1962 Blue Beat 45. Derrick of course was Blue Beats major artist during its British infancy; this release being an incredible 12th in the golden year of 1962. 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.

Arguably 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, both written by Derrick himself supported by the the might musical machine Duke Reid was building.

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

Shandly Duffus - I Will Be Glad / Heariso - Rio R41

Shandly Duffus

I Will Be Glad / Heariso

Rio : R41 (45s)

Better known as Shenley Duffus with his highly regarded 1964 self-composed SKA double.

A 45 that is rarely witnessed for sale with clean high quality playing surfaces. This copy has full gloss vinyl and as you can hear that crisp clean and true, two clean labels (another rare sight) original 4 prong centre removed.

A joyous dance tune, peppered with superior trumpet solos partitioning Shenley's rich vocal, supported by a full male group choruses.

A recording you feel so much better for hearing, top-drawer motivational SKA with a flipside to match; "Heariso" is just as impressive with its roots in Calypso but seamlessly crossing over into dynamic SKA again showcasing wonderful instrumental breaks, with a full male group backup. Just killer...

Two great sides on a super collectable label in fine condition that seldom surfaces for sale.

Mustang - Why / Here There And Everywhere - Ascot AS 2231 DJ

Mustang

Why / Here There And Everywhere

Ascot : AS 2231 DJ (45s)

Late May1967 Garage outing that seldom surfaces for sale, as the promo only New York based Ascot label.

A wicked piece of British made Freakbeat and this North London bands only 45.

Ascot Records an eclectic subsidiary of United Artists had a penchant for the British sound, already releasing recordings by Manfred Man, Graham Bond Organization, the label covered most genres in its short life. Quite how an obscure North London band "The Mustang" got their one and only British 45 promoted stateside, when it sold nothing in UK is a bit of a mystery, and to apparently not release it, is even more puzzling.

The Mustang had to be content playing university gigs, colleges, pubs and clubs in and around London throughout 1967 to 1969. They obviously where a talent gathering as this is impressive cockney-garage. Even the flipside a Lennon & McCartney classic is a worthy cover version of "Here, There and everywhere"

Check out the dismissive, unforgiving "Why". Vocally strong, driven by mighty percussion and relentless, angry plectrum work. The vresultb is another overlooked gem in the search for Brit/Garage/Freakbeat in actually its rarest form. The 1967 Ascot promo, beautifully housed in its birth-sleeve. In flawless condition.

Mayfield's Mule - Queen Of Rock N' Roll / I See A River - Parlophone R 5843 DJ

Mayfield's Mule

I See A River / Queen Of Rock N' Roll

Parlophone : R 5843 DJ (45s)

Pioneers of Glam Rock, this is the last of only three 45's this 4 man group released, we've flipped the sides to highlight the fledgling beginnings of "Brit-Glam"

This disc benefits from the gravel coated vocal of Chris Mayfield, the hard-basslines of Steve Bradley's guitar, keyboards from Pete Saunders, percussion from Sean Jenkins. Both sides written by band leader Chris Mayfield the original a-side aimed fairy and squarely at achieving radio airplay and ultimately a last gasp hit. Whilst with more artist discretion and freedom the flipside produced a hefty slab of groundbreaking Glam Rock.

"Queen Of Rock N' Roll" features on their unissued in Europe album, an highly regarded but super elusive album, that only got released in Uruguay the same year.

Here is "Mayfield's Mule" last throw of the dice, even recruiting Andy Scott all went wrong when he departed after a few months to join "Sweet". Sean Jenkins joined "The Elastic Band" leaving Chris Mayfield to continue his impressive writing, even though he had a great voice, we can't find him cutting any vinyl again. Steve Bradley an accomplished bass player, presumably went back to his roots. HIs guitar display on "Queen Of Rock N' Roll " would suggest he was much better than that.

A record that showcases the harsh life of having talent and trying to make it as a "Rock n' Roller" ..

Revelation - With You Boy / version - Moodisc 1003

Revelation

With You Boy / version

Moodisc : 1003 (45s)

The highly elusive, never seen 7" 45 version of this highly-regarded song. This is NOT the 2006 reissue, but the 1978 counterpart to the very sought after UK 7" 45 that never turns up for sale. likewise this Jamaican press also proves to be insanely elusive.

Totally killer "Lovers Rock", only ever encountered as the 12" version, but this neat clean 7" is frustratingly elusive. A 1978 UK production by Steve Loblack and "Write Sound" gives up an exquisite stepper that could easily cross over into "Soul circles. As the girl vocals from Carol Grey, Iris Cirwan, Valerie Shakes voices are steeped is distilled Soul. Prepare to have your heart melted by their mesmerizing flow of sweet harmony.

A stunning tune, which as a 7" with "With You Boy" Dub Version on the flipside is frustratingly rare.

Listen and be moved by this superbly tight blend of "Lovers Rock & Soul"

This copy is in fabulous unblemished condition.

Clue J and his Blues Blasters - Little Willie / Pine Juice - Blue Beat BB 60

Clue J and his Blues Blasters

Little Willie / Pine Juice

Blue Beat: BB 60 (45s)

A spectacular copy of this uplifting, addictive instrumental from the streets of Kingston, incorporating a gathering that supported most all SKA recordings of the time. Yet another testament to the musicianship that ran through the neighborhood. This one giving up a magnificent display of Carl McLaughlin Saxophone and Clarinet fusion.

The group included at one time or another a listing that reads like a "Who's Who" of SKA. Band leader Cluette Johnson gathered up a mercurial team of musicians including Roland Alphonso, Don Drummond, Tommy McCook, Rico Rodriquez, Lester Sterling, Earnest Raglin, Theo Beckford to name-drop but a few. So little wonder the depth, richness and fluidity just seeps from every note.

This is the SKA in it's infancy, deliciously inviting, feelgood music both sides. "Pine Juice" being the most desirable side..

Musketteer Gripweed - How I Won The War / Aftermath - United Artists UP 1196 DJ

Musketteer Gripweed

How I Won The War / Aftermath

United Artists : UP 1196 DJ (45s)

BEATLES scholars alert!

As listed in Rolling Stone Magazine January 22nd 1981 in the JOHN LENNON DISCOGRAPHY from1961-1980. An extremely elusive piece in the multi-faceted arena of Beatles collectables. Promo copy from 13th October 1967.

Musketeer Gripweed of course was John Lennon's character in Richard Lester's movie "How I Won The War" and this single was simultaneously released as the black-comedy film was launched the UK.

With Michael Crawford as the hapless Lt. Goodbody, putting everybody's life at risk; John Lennon as Gripweed. Adding to the hilarity is Roy Kinnear as Clapper and Michael Hordern as Grap. Today Richard Lester's movie is considered "cult" likewise this very rare 45, one that most serious Beatles completists are missing. With a short narrations from the movie's actors including John Lennon.

Nice clean example in company cover, really rare Beatles essential.

Leviathan

Remember The Times / Second Production

Elektra : EK 45655 DJ (45s)

For collectors who care about condition - a STONE-MINT Promo copy of this 1969 Psychedelic Rock classic.

The group that promised so much, this is the first of 3 x 45's they made for Elektra. Then they cut a much anticipated album, but for reasons unknown Stuart Hobday, Brian Bennett, Gary 'Roscoe' Murphy, Roger McCabe were dealt a severe disappointment when Elektra president Jac Holzman cancelled the release. They were after all a very talented quartet, writing their own material. Vocalist Stuart Hobday writing the a-side of this 45. Whilst the whole group al contributed to flipside " Second Production"

Click the sound file to envisage what their cancelled album may have brought them in the future. Leviathan never recovered from the unforeseen letdown and broke up shortly afterwards.

Leaving their numerous underground followers wondering..

This highly regarded 45 is in unrepeatable flawless archive condition.

Joan Ross / Hammers - Band Of Gold / Midnight Sunshine - Crab 61

Joan Ross / Hammers

Band Of Gold / Midnight Sunshine

Crab : 61 (45s)

Rare British produced Skinhead Reggae from the golden year of 1970.

Derrick Morgan direction for Pama records, give a brand new perspective on Freda Payne's biggest hit "Band Of Gold" arguably the biggest nightclub spin of 1970 carrying on until the mid-70s and a perennial dancefloor favourite, the song attaining greatness as nobody ever grew tired of hearing it.

The London songbird's sweet high-pitched rendition carries that same Holland-Dozier-Holland magic, achieving the same status over several years, but selling weakly upon release, thus not easy to find in today's market. Especially with clean labels and the centre still intact.

Great tune which ever sister version you choose to hear.

The flipside is a more than worthy East London keyboard dominated dance instrumental, by Pama's session boys.
