Jerry Jackson - It's Rough Out There / I'm Gonna Paint A Picture - Parkway P 100 DJ

Jerry Jackson

It's Rough Out There / I'm Gonna Paint A Picture

Parkway : P 100 DJ (45s)

Beat Ballad Heaven - an area of Northern Soul appreciation that just everybody has adored since the beginning Northern Soul, when records like; Jimmy Radcliffe's - Long After Tonight Is All Over & Bessie Banks's - Go Now - gave the club goer some respite from the rigors of the "speeding" dancefloor. The sound of the Big production "Beat Ballad" has always been dear to the hearts of the Northern Soul fan and still a big part of what actually encompasses the term "Northern Soul".

The "Brill Building" of New York the driving force behind these kitchen-sink productions using only the mightiest of voices to spearhead their work. Here is one of those classic beaters that started life in those legendary 60's clubs, played from that highly coveted British release, that occasionally surfaces to be fought over. But strangely enough over the decades I've found the USA press promo almost as rare it's UK counterpart.

So now listen to one of the greatest male Soul vocals of the 60's decade and this Parkway 100, his two finest recordings.

Both sides of this disc are truly monumental mid-tempo's crafted by that reliable coupling of Buddy Kaye & Phillip Springer, seasoned purveyors of the "Big City Sound". So much so, it matters not a jot which side you drop the stylus onto, a rich seam of Soul will cast your mind adrift on a rolling wave of the Big City Sound nailed by consummate Jerry Jackson crooning.

serving up real-deal "Beat Ballad Heaven" and then some more..

Condition Report

Two clean white promo label, contrasting the brilliantly colourful birth-sleeve, a beautiful vista for those collectors who adore a Northern Soul white promo. Vinyl has carries some fine light surface marks, but as you can hear both sides of this indomitable double helping of the Northern Soul Beat Ballad, it plays totally clean. Visually Ex, audibly Mint minus.

MANSHIP MINT - Johnny Summers

I Can't Let Go / Tell It Like I Feel

Yorktown : Y 1009 (45s)

MANSHIP MINTS FOR CHRISTMAS

Another top drawer Miles Grayson arrangement using the same backing track as "I'm Still Yours" one release earlier. This time Miles injects a more beseeching atmosphere as Johnny's despairing situation builds and builds. With those despairing Harold Bowen lyrics, deliberately softened by a searing girl-group chorus, as his pain swells.

Not to often does such deepened misery get so deliciously woven into such a potent Northern Soul dancer.

This copy is unplayed perfect, still house in it's birth-sleeve.

Magnificent Northern Soul !

Sebastian - I'll Still Be Loving You / Reach A Little Higher - Rivermont  V 1782

Sebastian

I'll Still Be Loving You / Reach A Little Higher

Rivermont: V 1782 (45s)

Now for a journey into the extremely obscure, weird and wonderful world of D.I.Y. Soul, get ready for something completely different, that has in recent in months captured the attentions the world's top Rare Soul jocks.

Written and produced by the mysterious Sebastian, who draws from various fine-art music forms, Jazz, Soul, Afro all collide in this classy session, that knows no boundaries.

A silky lone vocal "skats" through the expressive lyrics of loyalty, whilst Bongo rhythms fill the air and the need to dance takes over.

Ideal for the European jocks who push boundaries, and totally unknown to me before this copy landed on my desk. Personally I really love it, but I've always be a sucker for the artist who create their from outside music the box.

So very different, so addictive, a narcotic slab of Soul / Jazz fusion that imprisons your imagination for fully 4:33 minutes..

One for the DJ's who want to push the boundaries..

Cleveland Robinson - Love Is a Trap / A Loaf Of Bread - Nosnibor 1002

Cleveland Robinson

Love Is a Trap / A Loaf Of Bread

Nosnibor : 1002 (45s)

The prolific Cleveland Robinson with his most-loved Northern Soul & Popcorn offering.

Soul singer, producer, arranger, lyricist, promoter, label owner, designer and an artist extraordinaire with fully 13 or maybe more 45's to his credit pressed on his own thriving one-man music-machine enterprise "Nosnibor" (Robinson written backwards).

Get ready for a masterclass in Sou crooning as Cleveland gives up a cocktail of booming of Soul, Latin & Jazz prsented so eloquently by a velvety bellowing voice. His vocal presence, has the power to send shivers down your back, whilst warming your insides into a comforting glow; as Mr. Robinson the pitfalls of love, poetry woven into a fabulous honkin' horn arrangement. Starting with a fanfare of Latin trumpets soaring skyward. It is the starting pistol for a magical carpet of sound, for his muscular voice to cozy upon. Ear-piercing girl group choruses, an inventive arrangement with a "rattlesnake" rattle sound-effect punctuating the booming backing. Cleveland's consummate vocal meandering through Beast-Ballad-Heaven, a Northern Soul stroller with few equals and a timeless Belgium Popcorn anthem.. this song has pleasured both sides North Sea.

The flipside should not be overlooked either, another great Northern Soul outing? Another Popcorn / Northern Soul hybrid, that instantly hooks into your senses..

One of the true towering crooners to ever cut a Soul 45's, a name to mention in the same breath as Ray Pollard, Lou Rawls, Jimmy Ricks, Lenny Welch, Jerry Jackson etc...

Top tune we just don't hear enough of..
