Pretenders - I Call It Love / It's Everything About You (That I Love) Carnival 560

Pretenders

I Call It Love / It's Everything About You (That I Love)

Carnival : 560 (45s)

The Carnival 560 release, the upbeat dance mix everybody is chasing.... little wonder as this 45 in recent years has been doing a disappearing act as demand swell to bursting.

Listen to a fabulous Eddie Bivins & Joe Evans collaboration that they wisely decided to revisit, after releasing it earlier on Carnival 550 as a glorious Sweet Soul ballad..

This time the couple inject a sweeping mid-tempo arrangement whilst retaining all those glorious harmonized voices. Resulting in a fluid mid-paced rare-soul dancer that elevates your mood. A dancer that instantly has them up on their feet ecstatically shuffling to this infectious state of ease.

LOVE IT!

This is vocal-group modern-soul at it most delightful, a dancer that is currently sitting right at the top of it's popularity..

The flipside being quality brilliant, this 45 is a MUST-OWN as the value is only going one-way..as the pressure builds to own a copy, before it's too late..

Find a better vocal-group double header if you can.

This copy is flawless

Henry C and the Ivy Leaguers - Country Girl / I Can't Do Without Her - Action 117

Henry C and the Ivy Leaguers

Country Girl / I Can't Do Without Her

Action : 117 (45s)

Killer Memphis rarity that has featured in only the most privileged of DJ sets over the last couple of decades, supremely rare and giving up two jaw-dropping sides.

The Northern Soul dance side ripples with the rhythms of Memphis. An insistent bass guitar opens up this feelgood dancer, saxophone, horns, shrill girl-group choruses all join to enrich this rare session, dominated by Henry Thomas seamless vocal. A whistling Sax break cuts in, followed by a wall of brass. Echoing group backing and this NS dancer is now in full flow, taking you along with it's uplifting atmosphere..

WHAT DANCE A TUNE!

Then we flip it over for a real masterpiece of the Memphis Sound. This time Henry's vocal is cradled by a fluid male-group chorus as the "Ivy Leaguers" pour comforting emotion all over the arrangement, as the horns sympathetically take to the air. Henry Thomas falls to his knees, as he drains himself of emotion; then genius takes over, in the form a trumpet solo that elevates an already stunning record, into greatness, listen and weep!

For the Northern Soul all nighter "Country Girl" is a perfect rare drop that will turn heads..

for the Sunday Chill Out, Soul Essence Saturday afternoon or the burgeoning "Lowrider" scene that is now sweeping across the world of Rare Soul with DJ's and clubs from all country's influenced by it's "Cholesterol Lowing" properties. "Can't Do Without Her" stands as one of the most brilliant "Sweet Soul" strollers ever committed to vinyl.. truly awesome tune.

Don Holliger - Where The Young Folks Go / I Had A Nightmare - JATO 7000

Don Hollinger

Where The Young Folks Go / I Had A Nightmare

JATO: 7000 (45s)

Screaming Miami R&B from a celebrated Soul man, who sadly never had enough of his work released on vinyl. Mr. Hollinger was certainly one of the finest neglected Soul singers of the last century; just as comfortable with Blues, R&B, Deep Soul, Sweet Soul, with the skill mold his rugged vocal, effortlessly adjusting to whatever mood was required. All his vinyl is highly prized and hard to find.

On this session Miami's finest assemble, including Arnold Albury, Clarence Reid, Willie Clarke, Johnny Pearsall craft a compelling slab of R&B woven into Popcorn rhythms, resulting in a madly addictive dancer, saturated in Monster status qualities.

So click the soundfile to unleash this cult-artist's magnificent vocal presence...as his glides his rough-edged voice through an harmonica decorated arrangement, as the bass-line drives the dance rhythms under your skin. Steady whacking percussion, perfecting marries with Don's snarling delivery. Proper motivational R&B dancer..

As R&B Northern Soul is measured, this 45 is one of the very finest I've ever encountered, it had me seriously thinking that I need a copy in my DJ box.
A proper All-Nighter tune, perfect for the big system "blast 'em out of their seats!" approach..






an impressive Northern Soul shaker that rarely surfaces for sale..

Charles Sheffield - It's Your Voodoo Working / Rock N Roll Train - Excello 2200

Charles Sheffield

It's Your Voodoo Working / Rock N Roll Train

Excello: 2200 (45s)

One of the greatest R&B offering ever to the Popcorn & Northern Soul scenes.. an instantly mesmerizing dancefloor experience no matter which scene your attending..

From the very first note this recording imprisons you into it's narcotic rhythms. Slow pulsating bass-line lays down the path for Charles's snarling attitude to deliver it's charm into. An intrusive Baritone saxophone peppers the arrangement with irt's prodding burps. A magical fusion that has everyone up and on their feet, nobody can resist it hypnotic powers.

Rare seen in clean condition, rarely surfaces for sale.. little wonder really it is a NS DJ banker, a surefire audience-detonator, saturated in truly wicked qualities... that will haunt you long after the night is all over..

Pass by at your peril records of this quality will surely never fall in value..

Derwin Woods - Is It Love / same: - Winjam WJ 002

Derwin Woods

Is It Love / same:

Winjam : WJ 002 (45s)

You are viewing one of the rarest 80's Soul dance 7" 45's ever made. A California D.I.Y. project from 1984, collaboration between James Carloss & Derwin Woods made on such a tight budget they didn't record a flipside, with the flip remaining blank.

But the a-side more than makes up for it being a "one-sider" ..

100% neighborhood dance Soul that from the first beat to the last moves along at an inviting mid-tempo pace, as Derwin questions whether it is love or not?

Drenched in quality, lifted another notch by the shrill girl-group chorus "Is This Love" later changing key to delivery sultry "oooohs" and sexy squeals. The blending is rather delicious, you will find yourself singing the chorus, as Derwin raises his game driving his voice to bigger and higher pitches. To be relieved by an extreme saxophone break of real presence.. rhythmic bongos see the session seamlessly through to it's climax.

Real classy early 80's dance groove... and as rare as Hell!
