Cashmeres - Back To School Again / I Ain't Coming Back  - Hubba Hubba 100

Cashmeres

Back To School Again / I Ain't Coming Back

Hubba Hubba: 100 (45s)

Rarest Of The Rare - vocal group harmony Northern Soul no matter which side you drop the arm on.

A silky-smooth double helping of 60's gliding group-harmony from Washington, D. C. two off-the-scale rarities from the desk of the late great Freddie Perrin, a master of the mids-60s vocal group sound. Remembering his session with "The Moments - "Baby I Want You" on Hog or indeed his other Cashmeres session "Showstopper" on Hem. All three from the same time and place. This example being by far their rarest of the three.

For me it's difficult to choose the side we lead with, both sides written by E. H. Jefferson, the creative pen on all six Cashmeres recordings. But my bias nominates the sleek mid-tempo recording "Back To School Again" because of the social message within. This 45 gives up a narrative of a young man working so hard in school, to pass his exams; a social message to young Afro-americans to go to school and work hard. Echoing the White House agenda from vice-president Hubert Humphrey and the President Lyndon B. Johnson following civil right act of 1964. 1965 was a big year for soul recordings "messaging" the importance of working hard at school.

Now listen to mid-sixties street-level neighborhood vocal group harmony from the Capital at its purist, considered by vocal-group scholars as a Grail.

Flip it over for the grittier, Northern Soul mid-tempo groove portraying male defiance to walk to walk away from love. A defiance that would serve Freddie Perrin well, 13 years later when he crafted the world best seller for ""Girl" defiance when Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" became a worldwide hit that is still considered a GIrl-anthem today.

So listen to Freddie beginnings with "I Ain't Coming Back" a classy Northern Soul floater with edge. . doubling up with a sublime example of 1965 vocal-harmony Soul that is so sought after both sides of the Atlantic.

Guitar Ray

You're Gonna Wreck My Life / I Am Never Gonna Break His Rules Again

Shagg : 711 (45s)

There is not a more Soulful encounter with despair, ever to have ever graced a Northern Soul dancefloor. Guitar Ray is on his knees, drowning in the sheer hopelessness of his love's determination to ruin his life!

An act of unrecognized genius from Senator Jones at the time, as he amazingly chose this Soul masterpiece to be the flipside. If it wasn't for the European Rare Soul scene, triumphant portrayal of anguish may have passed the world by.,.

"How Many More Years.. Are You Gonna Wreck My Life" is the most beseeching opening for a song. Guitar Ray's pleading vocal paints a picture of wretchedness no man want to experience. Even worse he feels it may be too late to start anew; for this aging man has just lost his lover to a younger man... the pain is palpable!

Wow, this song penetrates your very being, with it's convincing delivery and beautifully sympathetic horns...the hairs on my arms, bristle as I listen to his situation of mental torture. ..

If rare dance Soul, gets any better than this I've yet to hear it..

Stan Ivory - Come Live With Me / Stan's Theme - Tese 1999 DJ

Stan Ivory

Come Live With Me / Stan's Theme

Tese : 1999 DJ (45s)

Rare 70's Soul "cool" administered by Stan Ivory and His Omnificent Orchestra displaying shades of imagination normally reserved for the likes of Stevie Wonder or Vernon Burch, as Stan and team delivering a mesmeric fusion of soaring Soul strings and cradling a jazzy Stan Ivory vocal, gliding through the misty haze of Jazz/Soul. Elevated to yet another level as spiraling flutes rising up to a waft you away into Soul Heaven.

With the innovative Lincoln Ross using all of his renowned skills from his "Fantasy" journey with The Three Pieces, the gathering weave a spellbinding example of the late 70's Soul / Jazz experience.

A truly awesome tune that cemented a long term Ross / Ivory long term partnership that covered all four points of the USA, searching for that elusive breakthrough, but unfortunately never replicatinmg this zenith of Stan Ivory's creativity.

Here is the seldom seen 1977 promo copy in fine clean condition, ready to grace a discerning DJ's set with sumptuous Soul quality you'd be challenged to match.

Funk, break & beat hunters will find the flipside worth checking out.

Walk Like a Man / It's Just My Way Of Loving You

Date : 2-1562 DJ MANSHIP MINT (45s)

MANSHIP MINTS FOR CHRISTMAS - a flawless previously unplayed copy still housed in birth-sleeve.

It is quite surprising just how many Northern Soul classics from that "golden era" of the early 70's, actually carry flipsides that would cause the same levels of euphoria that their a-sides did 45 years earlier..

The Sweets _ Satisfy Me Baby - on Soultown jumps to mind, with that amazing flipside "Something About My Baby" hidden on the flipside that lay dormant for decades. Likewise this Golden Torch classic, by Johnny Moore; a record that triggered gymnastic excellence from the dancers at that Tunstall Temple of Temptation. A more perfect example of real-deal of Northern Soul would be hard to compare. As that trusty partnership of Jack Daniels & Johnny Moore once again craft pumping 60's dance Soul that takes you to the very edge of that NS precipice.

Rolling drums, twangy guitar, barking horns, and a note-holding Johnny Moore at the top of his game; as he jerks and weaves his way through the lyrics with convincing enthusiasm.

This is Northern Soul at it's most "classic" but lets return to our first observation, which highlights some killer tunes hidden away on NSC flipsides..

"It's Just My Way Of Loving You" is premier Northern Soul mid-tempo dripping with all the goodness that has nourishes those much-missed Sunday Afternoon chill-outs, and gets my vote for a drop at "Feed Your Soul" Newark next time we reopen... Utterly gorgeous emotional floater hidden away on the backside of a wickedly superior Northern Soul staple.

A MANSHIP MINT you would think an impossible find in 2020..

Billy Hoke - I Wonder / I Don't Want No Other Woman  - D.W. 101

Billy Hoke

I Wonder / I Don't Want No Other Woman

D. W. : D.W. 101 (45s)

Extremely rare and flawless FIRST 45 release on Jerry Cohen's label with the original company address of 351 Washington Street, Newark, New Jersey. A little later when the location of the label moved, the colour changed to Blue. The blue labvel release credits James Wayne and his Night Hawks as providing the backing music, and relicensed away from "Big Hush" BMI to "Slip N' Skip" music, two self composed recordings that Billy most likely transferred copyright over. When Jerry Cohen launched his local label for artists in the area.

Originally "I Wonder" was the flipside of this neighborhood Blues drag, that Billy poured every ounce of of his gravel coated vocal into, not a sad song at all, but Billy manages to make it as somber as possible. "I Don't Want No Other Woman" is an exemplary example of poor area Newark New Jersey Blues from 1961.

But like all standout flipsides they whether it be the blue or the yellow press "I Wonder" took the lead being picked up by R&B club DJ's, with the devastating freestyle saxophone outburst stealing the show. .

USA rare New Jersey Blues, two self composed recordings, in rarely, if ever encountered mint minus condition, with two clean labels.

Sophisticates

I Really Hope You Do / Let Me Go

Underground Sounds: 1002 (45s)

The talented brother / sister writing / producing team of Anita & Greg Poree craft the most glorious "ahead of its time" Northern Soul Crossover delight, that has been gracing only few privileged rare-soul DJ sets, over the last decade, earning itself a huge reputation as a connoisseur room or Sunday chill-out floor-pleaser. The purist from-the-heart soul, shimmering from the quality only a neighborhood recording can emit. Underlined when two years later, this Jerry Peter & Anita Poree composition was produced by the mighty RCA for inclusion on Friends Of Distinction hit album "Grazing In The Grass" a version that gets absolutely nowhere close to capturing the essence of West L. A.

Such a captivating floater, it repeats itself in your head long after your day has ended. Addictive, simplistic Greg Poree piano pulses, peppered with ringing vibes decorate its journey into you psyche.

Frustratingly rare, bewitching, elegant, narcotic Northern Soul delivered by a convincing hopeful voice of a girl desoperately in love...

A masterpiece of girl-group Northern Soul that seldom turns up for sale.

Newby & Johnson

I Want To Give You My Everything / Sweet Happiness

Mercury : 6052 027 DJ (45s)

An off-the-scale rare, so seldom, if ever encountered 1970 Red & White UK DEMO!

A listing for those serious British collectors who really know their "onions", and appreciate just how elusive this 45 is as a gorgeous promo copy.

Larry Weiss pairs up New Yorkers, Diane Newby, top girl voice from Larry's mid-60's Kapp sessions, with Willie Johnson the lead vocal of the seasons Big Apple gathering the Del Royals. Resulting in two killer Northern Soul Larry Weiss composed beauties on one disc. Has Larry Weiss & Tony Camillo try to fill mixed Soul duo a gap, sadly vacated by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell.

Diane & Willie deliver a soaring Motownesque dancer, decorated with waves of strings and heavenly girl-group affirmations...the style is uncanny, as the two artists rebound of each other elation of "finding" each other. Willie Johnson sounding so "Marvin" as he confirms he feels the same way. Stunning turn of the decade Northern Soul duet, that for reasons unknown was the only "Newby & Johnson" 45 release.

The flipside the pair again serve up a cheery Northern Soul dancer that Larry Weiss believed in, using a year later with "Storm" on the Sunflower label.

Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell were always gonna be irreplaceable, perhaps that's why Larry Weiss abandoned the notion; but if there was ever gonna be a void filler, this pairing of Diane & Willie had all the credentials to give it a damn good go.

Red & White's this is elusive as they come...

Lee Roye - Tears ( Nothing But Tears ) / Who Am I - Decca 32356 DJ

Lee Roye

Tears ( Nothing But Tears ) / Who Am I

Decca : 32356 DJ (45s)

I can't ever encounter this record, without being rocketed back to Memphis August 1977, a city in mourning as "The King" had just suddenly died.

Every old-timer can tell you exactly when, where and how he found any significant 45, no matter how many years have since passed. Finding Lee Roye - Tears - in a Memphis bathroom, was far more significant to me than the world's most famous Rock N' Roll artist's sudden passing.

I hope you don't mind me telling this story for the umpteenth time, but Lee Roye always triggers memories of that day 43 years ago in Memphis with Jim Stapleton a record dealer of high renown in the 70's.

I was having a shit day looking for Soul records. There are many Northern Soul classics that generate euphoric recall whilst you're dancing at a Northern Soul event. Then there are a few that transport you back through time, to another point in your life. My personal mind-journey with Lee Roye, takes me straight to Elvis Presley and a city in mourning.

In August 1977 I was on my 4th. buying trip to the USA in Memphis to visit the legendary local record man Jim Stapleton. Armed with a head full of record titles, that I wished and hoped I would find. I spent the day at his house trawling through his well organized stock of 45s. I found next to nothing to tick off my burning "wants list", I was quickly becoming a little disillusioned as my hopes with Jim were high. I had been so focused on finding records, I'd held back my urgent need for the bathroom..

When I eventually got in there, a typical "Record Dealer" bathroom confronted me...piled up high with record boxes. Right next to the seat where I sat hands on knees, breathless in relief, was a box of 45's. Well, you can't resist can you? So adjusting my position slightly on the seat, I pulled out a handful of 45's, as the strain of the day was expelled.

I shouted top Jim "What Are These 45s in here" he called back "they are all shit". A rather apt reply for my current situation; "50 cents each" I heard, without moving my ass another inch, I dug into 3 100 count boxes next to the pan. They were full of 60's promo's. Kapp, Decca, RCA, Columbia, all the major labels and all the obscure stuff that Jim didn't recognize was left there unsorted...a treasure trove of mint unplayed radio station rejects of mostly Northern Soul.

Out jumped a Johnny Caswell, Dana Valery, Roy Hamilton, Lorraine Chandler..and a very lovely copy of Lee Roye (a hugely wanted record of the moment) . It was a great score. The best "score" I've ever had in a toilet, did I wipe my ass before jumping up, to rip open the other boxes that littered the room? I think I did...but very quickly.

I pulled over 200 45's from that bathroom...

For me Lee Roye doesn't take me to Cleethorpes where it was a floor-destroying monster; It catapults me back to Memphis, an unwashed basin splattered with toothpaste, shaving foam and months of unrinsed face stumble; Yes a typical vinyl-man's bathroom. But a very comfortable toilet seat, with the floor "tiled" with rare 60's promo 45s...

Don't worry this "Lee Roye" is not the same copy from my "Stapleton" experience, super clean vinyl (no skid marks)

Gene Chandler - Pretty Little Girl / A Little Like Lovin' - Constellation C-110

Gene Chandler

Pretty Little Girl / A Little Like Lovin'

Constellation : C-110 (45s)

Gene Chandlers rarest 45 by a country mile - so very rare - so damn good!

After Gene biggest hit "Duke Of Earl" which he co-wrote with Earl Williams of The Dukays. Gene Chandler not only took all the credit for the song, he also briefly changed his artist billing to "Duke Of Earl" after leaving the Dukays for a solo career with Chicago biggest independent label Vee Jay. After 4 45s under that persona, Gene reverted to being Gene Chandler recording another 5 singles for the mighty Vee Jay.

Then Vee Jay's charismatic President Eddie Abner got fired. But this determined entrepreneur, just to moved into 1421 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, forming a new label, and Constellation Records Inc. was born taking Gene with him in 1963.

First releasing "It's No Good For Me / From Day To Day " as Constellation's 3rd 45. It didn't sell to well. Gene's next 45 "Pretty Little Girl / A Little Like Lovin'" sold even less and was quickly deleted. Abner moved as swiftly as possible, enlisting the prolific pen of Curtis Mayfield before Gene suffered 3 "failures" in a row. "Think Nothing About It" did much better, a minor hit in Chicago, and Gene's career with his new label started to take off.

"Pretty Little Girl" discarded and quickly forgotten, today it is not only Gene's very hardest 45 to acquire, it is also heralded as killer Northern Soul / Popcorn. Which co-writer George E. Smith also recorded a year later, produced by Richie Barrett in New York, now considered a NS Grail for Beat Ballad Heaven scholars. Both versions spine-tingling muscular production, featuring Soul girl choir, chirping out the chorus, as Gene stabbing vocal style pushing through Bongo rhythms, blaring brass, Hammond keyboard enrichment. That leaves you thirst for the ownership, very few collectors can boast of.

Flip it over and you're in for another mid-tempo treat, as Gene is in expressive mood, fluttering voice carries that irresistible emotion tremble that Sam Cooke delivered so seamlessly

Two resplendent Chicago strollers, that got lost in the urgency to produced a hit for Gene and his new home.

Dog-rare!

Skip Jackson and the Shantons

I'm On to You Girl / Promise That You'll Wait

Dot Mar MANSHIP MINT: YB 324 (45s)

A MANSHIP MINT for Christmas!

In recent times, this 45 has reemerging on selective rare Soul gatherings play lists as a "revived" spin, as the first time round I don't think our minds were not quite "educated" enough to it subtleties to fully appreciate the two dynamic sides this rare-soul double-hitter has to offer.

We lead with the powerful mid-tempo a-side, Skip's gravelly vocal gargles the lyrics as a soothing male harmony chorus enriches the background. Back in the 70's when this 45 first started to get noticed, it just wasn't the Motownesque upbeat production the dancefloor then craved. Although appreciated, talked about, it was rarely heard "out". But "today" this 45 stands not alone, as one we shamefully passed over. hear a barrage of brass, decorated with infectious guitar rhythms; laying down a groove that instantly grabs your attention. Just perfect for Skip's very impressive vocal. Add to that the relentless silky male-harmony choruses from time-served beautifully seasoned voices of "The Shantons" building up the arrangement, for Skip's snarling his way through those persuasive words;

An undeniably classy Northern Soul recording that would add substance to any DJ set..

Whilst the flipside is the original version of the much-loved Soulful Stepper/Carib Soul style 1972 stroller recorded by Michael Lizzmore on Capitol, another recording that enjoys a cult appreciation.
Skip's original version, is more muscular, imposing and arguably better than Michael L's vocal on his rarely seen 45.

So here's a 45 giving up not one but two great sides, top side is solid Northern Soul enjoying a strong renaissance, after our cloth-eared past never paid it the attention it so deserved. Not forgetting it also boasts a beautiful Cross-over flipside, the meatier original version also picking up some Sunday-Chill action..

An essential DJ box disc, we'd say, shimmering with quality two-4-one value.

The genius of "Double Diamond" production team presented in it's most-wanted and rarest clothes - the coveted West Coast promo copy.

A Northern Soul anthem with the power to lift your every sensory nerve into euphoric recall, as you're catapulted back to those golden years of the early to mid 70's when this was top-tune everywhere across the scene.
So yet again, prepared to be captured by inspirational Philadelphia and New York knowhow when the DD team produced this magnificent Northern Soul dancer. Offered here as this irresistibly eye-catching collectable format.

John Madara, David White, Joe Renzetti and Leon Huff were riding the crest of a wave with the success of Len Barry's Bell Sound studio sessions pulling in hit after hit. Leon Huff on the piano, Madara & White at the console tweaking the sound, Renzetti directing the orchestra, crafting the mesmerizing rhythms of a big city production. You can hear that "Len Barry" was at the back of the team's mind, as this would have perhaps been another Len Barry monster hit for Decca, if Len hadn't been tempted away to RCA by Jimmy Wisner. It flows with all the ingredients that made Len's Decca sessions a string of massive hits.

Kenny Gamble is credited on this original studio acetate as the co-writer but his name missed off on the Parkway west coast press. So we'll add the illustrious name of Kenny top this six-a-side dream-team.

A record that reveals what is possible when highly gifted music-men collaborate, it would be hard to image a tighter gathering of talent.. than these guys in the studio all at the same time guiding one of Philly's most exciting Soul voices.

Now listen to the lost-art of making mood-rousing, dancefloor-packin' Northern Soul Music ...
