Jimmy Lloyd - Where The Rio De Rosa Flows / (We've Reached) The Beginning Of The End - Roulette RCW 7001 DJ

Jimmy Lloyd

Where The Rio De Rosa Flows / (We've Reached) The Beginning Of The End

Roulette : RCW 7001 DJ (45s)

Condition! Condition! Condition!

An amazingly clean 1957 Rockabilly promo, still housed in its original birth-sleeve. Rare condition indeed.

Kentuckian Country artist with a penchant for a lively dance recording, with his first rocker. A twangy guitar led bopper, with piano pulse decorating the background. Jimmy's gritty upstretched vocal is at ease with the pace, as his words flow with ease as the backing build. A marvellous guitar break then adorns this already attractive Rockabilly romp.

A year later Jimmy would co-write the Rockabilly classic "I Got a Rocket in My Pocket," again released on the Roulette label, but this rocker was his first for the label.

A real down country artist with two seriously appreciated rockers on the same label.

This listing in real standout condition.

Big Boy Crudup - My Wife And Woman / The War Is Over - RCA Victor 47-5563

Big Boy Crudup

My Wife And Woman / The War Is Over

RCA Victor : 47-5563 (45s)

A Mississippi Blues man who like so many made his way north to Chicago, to make the Windy City his home and signing for RCA Victor in the late 1940's.

Here's a chance to own a miraculously clean mint minus copy of one of his 1953 Blues 45's, that never surfaces in this cocooned condition.

The a-side is painful but laidback consummate Blues. His wife won't stay at home. she's out with some other man. A performance with a difference, a strong piano presence, lazy bass, prompting saxophone rhythms cradling Big Boys tortured vocal

Same recipe for the flipside, but Arthur picks up the pace. "The War Is Over" gives up a R&B dance groove elevated by a down n' dirty saxophone intrusions... R&B DJ take note this has huge potential for dancefloor.

A Blues legend who spent most of his life fighting the record companies for royalties due to him. not only for his records but also for his prowess as a lyricist, writing both sides if the street corner Blues 45s. He became so disillusioned at not getting paid his dues, he retired from releasing records during the 50's. returning in the 60's again to fight for his royalties and thankfully record a couple of 45's for Bobby Robinson's New York "Fire" label.

Check out this giant of the Blues with two songs he wrote himself, .

Again we underline Bog Boy's prowess by quoting his future stablemate Elvis Presley ""If I had any ambition, it was to be as good as Arthur Crudup"

Hugh-Roy-Henry - Baby / Version - Opportunity Blank RE 5745

Hugh-Roy-Henry

Baby / version

Opportunity Blank : RE 5745 (45s)

1971 Rupie Edwards production, that featured as the last track of 16 on the 2001 compilation "Rupie's Scorchers: Classic Early Success Productions 1969-1971" but so very rare as the original 45 blank that suffered from mastering problems. This copy is an original blank with the label with erroneous crediting. To the Righteous Flames.

A session notable for the weird amplifier adjustments that sound more like a recording flaw than the weird sound effect being sought. A unique experiment that didn't quite work as intended, but Rupie went to press anyway. Making this disc an extremely elusive 45, matrix DSR RE 5745. Manufactured and distributed by Success Records of Kingston.

This copy has MINT minus vinyl and clean labels.

Flawless vinyl, the echoing muffle is in the mastering. fine clean labels.

Johnny Clarke - Can't Get Enough / 1982 press UK press -  Art & Craft ACD LP 001

Johnny Clarke

Can't Get Enough / 1982 press UK press

Art & Craft : ACD LP 001 (LP)

Rare 1982 British Dread / Roots album from one of the Island's most respected artists. Johnny Clarke skilfully backed up by "Roots Radics" produced by label owner Stafford Douglas. This 10 track limited press comes together beautifully.

Strangely as only could happen in this genre of music the title track "Can't Get Enough" is not by Johnny Clarke nor in fact is "Lovely Girl" not that it detracts from the allure of this well crafted LP. Johnny's skill at taking "known" song and elevating it into the hearts of dancehall.

A much wanted and highly elusive album, that pours out silky smooth "Social Statements" with "Lover's grooves" with a serious message.

Hard to acquire.

Lloyd Charmers - Soul Of England / Shang I - Escort ES 820

Lloyd Charmers

Soul Of England / Shang I

Escort : ES 820 (45s)

1970 Skinhead Reggae in near perfect condition.

An iconic stalwart of Jamaican music, aka Lloyd Tyrell. Writer, singer, producer. During 1968 thru 1971 his recording output was huge. A "a tour de force" during the "skinhead" Reggae boom of 1969 / 1970. Before you today are two of his finest compositions, back to back on one disc.

Shimmering with inspiring dance rhythms and enticing moans, groans, "Cockney" chants littered with innuendos peppering that infectious arrangement. An attention-seeking feel-good Skinhead romp.

Flip it over "Shang I" provides the dancefloor with another fabulous piano led instrumental, this time no gimmicks, no nonsense. Underlining Lloyd Charmers composing talents, as he constructs an addictive instrumental that builds up into a rousing finish..

two great TUNES ... proper dancefloor pleasers which ever side you drop the arm on.

I. Roy / Skatalites

War And Affection / Franco Nero

Caribbean : CBN 305 (45s)

1976 Bunny Lee project, killer Roots with the Satellites coming in on the b-side with a ghostly instrumental version.

Both sides lifted from his highly regarded album "Bald Head Dread" from the same year. This is the elusive British 7" 45 release in spectacular condition.

A haunting floater benefitting from the flute caressed trippy arrangement, effortlessly cradling Roy Reid's message through this narcotic experience. Eerie Roots at it's most effective..

Flip it over to fully appreciate the skill involved building up the backing track.

Two strong tunes on a very elusive 7" 45. In rather special condition..

Berry Street Station - Soho / Karla - Zuma LC 645

Berry Street Station

Soho / Karla

Zuma: LC 645 (45s)

Totally weird and hideously rare Major Bill Smith cocktail of Funk/Popcorn/Exotica complete with a clean picture cover... so very sought after for more reasons than just being impossible to find.

Haunting, groovy, psychedelically addictive instrumental with a young lady's vocal writhing in pleasure or is it pain? Whilst a laidback guitar peppers the blanket of strings as the harmonica intrusions add another layer to this instrumental's intriguing uniqueness. As "Karla" captivates your mind... just so far off-the-wall it becomes a real killer session that demands 3, 4 or even 5 plays before you can put it down.

Flip it over for more weirdness, an instrumental that purports to be a soundtrack for a B-movie "Karla" that most scholars think does not exist... or could it be the 1969 Porn movie, starring Joe Sarno. More devilish intrigue piles up with the lady on the cover, stretched out on the carpet. What a cool picture cover tease it is, for that movie or maybe not.. nobody seems quite sure.

What we do know is.. this is insanely RARE and "Soho" is an addictive slab of "Strange" and we love doing serious weird rarities on this page..

Lorenzo Holden - Whipped Cream / Stella By Starlight - Mambo 103

Lorenzo Holden

Whipped Cream / Stella By Starlight

Mambo : 103 (45s)

Very rare 1955 Los Angeles Saxophone driven "Tittyshaker" is about the gate-crash your life.

Well before "The Wig" but just as impressive, Lorenzo Holden the tenor Sax wizard, writes, produces and perform the wild display of R&B. From the first note, a screaming saxophone display impales your attention as rockin' piano pulses drive the background, then the keyboard goes solo, to be joined by an out-of-control Blues guitar. The session takes to the air, then the tenor Sax bursts back on...to complete a breath-taking recording of breakneck power and drive.

Filthy, relentless and unforgiving ...real-deal rockin' R&B instrumental with muscle.

65 years of age, in flawless condition still snug in its birth-sleeve.
