Tempos - I'll Never Forget / Disc Jockey Paradise - Diamond Jim DR 8792

Tempos

I'll Never Forget / Disc Jockey Paradise

Diamond Jim: DR 8792 (45s)

From the hot seat at 12328 Dexter Ave, Detroit, MI 48206 James "Diamond Jim" Riley crafted some of Detroit's finest offerings to Northern Soul.

This 1968 release by The Tempos being IMHO his very best record on the label, ironically the last outing the Tempos had with this James Riley. After their first release as The Moments 4 years earliuer Bufford Glatton, Ben Knight, Herschel Hunter, Sam Pearson and James Davis dispersed into the Detroit music scene.

So where did that attractive rasping vocal of Herschel Hunter move on to? I don't know, but vocals of that remarkable character are rare and unforgettable. Listen how he gently conducts the vocal proceedings. Dictating the lush atmosphere of this haunting slab of quality Northern Soul. His exquisitely scraping voice, perfect to deliver the despair of a love affair turned untrue.

Emotionally elegant as his convincing delivery hits home, whilst his teammates enrich his torment.

In a city heavily populated with accomplished male Soul groups...

Motown Museum Partnership Program

Opening Celebrations / Thursday May 25th 1995

Motown Museum: 25 5 1995 (45s)

23 years ago this was the Pre-Gala program for the 2 hour opening ceremony of the MOTOWN MUSEUM Thursday May 25th 1995.

Just how many of these were printed is unknown, but we do know there could not have been many. How many were treasured and filed for the future, cannot be more than a handful.

Here is the historical Detroit happening preserved in a 12 page, card cover, with full colour centrefold in flawless condition.

A multitude of previously unpublished photographs, absorbing text, check out the images provided.

The autographs in my opinion are PRINTED not written, which does not detract from it's historical importance or its obscene rarity.

If your serious about Motown ephemera this is a crucial piece of the Berry Gordy jigsaw

Van Dykes - Save My Love For a Rainy Day / Tears Of Joy - Mala 584 DJ

Van Dykes

Save My Love For a Rainy Day / Tears Of Joy

Mala : 584 DJ (45s)

It is not often you can say, a record producer takes a Motown recording and makes it better. This Norman Whitfield composition never achieved more than album track recognition in 1967. Until a quick on the draw Charles Stewart saw potential for a four man Texas Soul gathering to revamp it into a hit.

Rondalis Tandy, Wenzon Mosley, Eddie Nixon and James Mays and his rich baritone. Do such a beautiful job on pouring out vocal-group Motown retaining a little street-corner nous for "edge" with a seamless flood of harmony Soul.

Charles Stewart thundering bass-line intro, peppered with ringing vibes, blasted skyward by a barrage of brass, then met head-on by Ron Tandy's searing falsetto.

It is one of the most motivational intros of them all - park your drink and dash to the dancefloor, it is a record you can really dig your feet into. Driven to the brink by a torrent of male voices..

THIS IS NORTHERN SOUL at it's most exhilarating

and the flipside is delicious top drawer Sweet Soul harmony. That showcases one of the most gifted Soul groups, who sadly failed to make worldwide fame.. The Impressions, Manhattans, Dramatics, Temptations, The Dells would not have sung "Tears Of Joy" finer than the fabulous Van Dykes. A group who never quite reached the dizzy heights their talents so deserved.

THIS IS SWEET SOUL at it's most exquisite

Percy Wiggins

That's Loving You / Look What I've Done ( To My Baby )

A-Bet : 9434 DJ (45s)

Memphis goes to Nashville.

Spencer's brother Percy left Memphis for a musical journey to RCA after an introduction to prolific Writer, arranger, producer; Fellow son of Memphis Larry Lee, who in turn showed of Percy's vocal prowess to Jery Crutchfield.

"It Didn't Take Much for RCA and his one his penultimate 45 in 1968 a storming slab of Northern Soul, backed up as all the other 45's were with a Deep Soul ballad.

NOTE. this is the 1968 first press PROMO with the logo A-Bet, not the later release in the early 70s on the Abet reissue.

Yvonne Vaughn - When You Gonna Tell Her About Me / Lonely Little Girl - Dot 16751

Yvonne Vaughn

When You Gonna Tell Her About Me / Lonely Little Girl

Dot: 16751 (45s)

Those Page Boys do it again!!

Billy & Gene Page warmed by the California sun in June 1965, craft an almighty cocktail of Girl-group-sound/Northern Soul/Spector style big city sound. From this scintillating amalgam, emerges a instantly inspiring NS dancer.

The rolling drum intro, collides with a deluge of brass, cut to ribbons by razor-sharp strings. The insistent lead vocal rides a wall-of-sound, aided by a shrill girl-chorus and blasting horns..

The flip "Lonely little girl" is not to be overlooked. Riddled with uplifting high-end piano strokes, rhythmic guitar picks all blend into the ideal background for Yvonne Vaughn to flex her vocal range. We just adore the intentional emotional "cracking" in her voice. Teen flavoured Northern Soul you will find slowly but surely worming into your mind.

Two strong sides, top side is perfect All-Nighter fuel, the flipside less obvious but extremely addictive as you slowly fall for Yvonne's sultry vocal.

Rare and we think brilliant, yet to receive the full exposure it so obviously deserves.

Chuck Jackson - I Wake Up Crying / blank - UK Belinda 7" acetate

Chuck Jackson

I Wake Up Crying / blank:

UK Belinda: acetate (45s)

Just when you seasoned British Soul collectors though you owned everything by Chuck Jackson. Here's a unique 1961 UK acetate that was never issued in the UK as a 45.
It did appear on the 1968 Pye "Super Soul" compilation album. But everything about this acetate points to 1961 cut. Presumably for "Top Rank" but they never used it after two poor sales with "I Don't Wanna Cry" Top Rank 564 and in 1962 "Breaking Point" Top Rank 507. Chuck Jackson in the early 60's was an unknown quantity in the UK before slowly but surely becoming one of the icons of the British Soul collector.

For the serious about amassing a great UK Soul collection this "lost" acetate is essential.

Chuck Jackson is unquestionably a Soul demigod to us all. "I Wake Up Crying" personifies Beat-Ballad-Heaven and the New York City Sound..

I so very lucky to work at this labour of love, every week just when you think you've "seen it all" something new and exciting is found..

This discovery of an unissued, 1961 UK acetate of a beloved artist, crooning a killer Beat-Ballad; is the kind of thing that gets me out of bed every morning.

Holidays - I’ve Lost You / Easy Living - Groove City 206

Holidays

I’ve Lost You / Easy Living

Groove City: 206 (45s)

Detroit Northern Soul at it’s most compelling, whichever side you drop the needle on.

Double-header "value for money" Detroit rarities don't come much better than this duel-delight.

Soaring horns, jingling vibes are the podium for a beseeching Soulful vocal. An on-his-knees - hands on his heart plea fir another chance. Convincing, moving and utterly gut-wrenching as you feel for his irreparable mistake. His voice is so plausibly in pain, the producer sees no reason for the other Holidays to join in. A truly remarkable solo performance of real Soul! Woven into a Motor City Northern Soul dance setting that simply takes your
breath away..

One of my all time favourite Detroit recordings..

Flip it over "Easy Living" has the same heartfelt, imploring atmosphere, this time his teammates coat the proceedings with with glorious harmony choruses; the session just glides from one high to another..

Detroit was the providing of many, many unforgettable 45's, just a few had the luxury of giving up not one but two killer tunes on one disc.. I consider this Groove City outing as one of the very greatest.

So Good, bidders regret will haunt the second place for an eternity..

Joe Douglas - Something To Brag About / Crazy Things - Playhouse 1000

Joe Douglas

Something To Brag About / Crazy Things

Playhouse: 1000 (45s)

Just like Yvonne Baker’s “ I Can’t Change c/w Mend The Torn Pieces” Again the Motor City collaborates with The Sound of Philadelphia, helping craft not one but two standout Northern Soul dance tunes.

The top side “Something To Bragg About” is yet another immaculate Robert L. Martin composition, whilst the equally impressive flip “Crazy Things” incorpates the dual gifts of Jack Ashford and Mike Terry.

The credits of those 3 doyens of 60’s Soul sitting on the labels makes for a salivating journey into the very best Northern Soul has to offer. Which actually worked against its turntable life.

It was such a surefire Monster, it was spuriously counterfeited in premature anticipation of taking off big! But as so often happens when a flood of copies spill onto the collectors market. The late 70s NS DJ’S passed it over. It was not until later down the line, that it became obvious the “copies” on the market were “counterfeits” and the original was indeed a rare 45 back then and even rarer today.

So with a little patience either side of this 45 would have been a huge Northern Soul hit but was never given the chance.

Before you today, is that rare authentic first press, a listing for those of you who really appreciate, top drawer Northern Soul and would rather walk naked through their town centre at noon; than buy, play or hold one of those counterfeits pressed to deceive... and they did that for quite some time, at the expensive of a truly great 45 that never received the turntable time it most certainly deserved back when first discovered.

Sly & The Family Stone - Dance To The Music / Let Me Hear It From You - Columbia DB 8369

Sly & The Family Stone

Dance To The Music / Let Me Hear It From You

Columbia : DB 8369 (45s)

1968 UK press that was withdrawn by EMI within a few days. CBS took over the "disputed" rights to be moved onto the burgeoning "Soul" dedicated label "Direction" on which it became a monster Soul Club hit, Youth Club favourite and a Disco smash!!

Anybody over the age of 50 will be rocketed back to euphoric recall of their formative years the moment those horns unleash the intro, for insane guitars and exuberant chants and scream as "The Family Stone" inflame a barrasge of Funk/Soul the like of which has never been heard before!!

But wait ..!! The British EMI withdrawn "Dance To the Music" is a completely different mix to the Direction "hit" that CBS put out.

Not only the British first press, not only withdrawn after just a few days BUT A TOTALLY different mix to the one we all know and grew up with.

Little wonder this 45 is consider a top-collectors-piece by dedicated British Soul scholars.

Click the soundfile and taste the difference!!

Trends - Not Too Old To Cry / If You Don't Dig The Blues - ABC 10731

Trends

Not Too Old To Cry / If You Don't Dig The Blues

ABC : 10731 (45s)

One for the lovers of the BLACK stock copy, here's a disc that seldom surfaces in tip-top condition. This listing is so very near to being a Manship mint.

Johnny Pate expertly guides this Chicago session ripples with subtle Big City rhythms not normally associated with the Windy City; as he shackles those rich group vocals into a tender whisper in the intro, the sublte build up creeps under your skin settling snugly into your now rested-brain. A tantalizing expansion vocal-group expertise, as all those silky vocals fuse into a warm wave of Soul.

This is what can happen when highly-honed-talents come together in one room, something very special is created.

Classy in the extreme, severely addictive and unforgettable..

Flip it over and Johnny Pate & the boys repeats the exercise with a mighty fine Northern Soul mid-tempo that so far has not enjoyed the turntable exposure it most certainly deserves.
So much so I'm having a little difficulty deciding which side gives the DJ the most output for the dancefloor.

Let's just say TWO killer tunes for the price of one.. delivered by an impeccable condition 1965 original.

David Ruffin - Action Speaks Louder Than Words / You Can Get What I Got - Check-Mate 1003 DJ

David Ruffin

Action Speaks Louder Than Words / You Can Get What I Got

Check-Mate : 1003 DJ (45s)

This week's rare Motown offering is David Ruffin's 2nd 45 release under the real name. Written by Roquel "Billy" Davis and Berry Gordy. Like many of Gordy's early "misses" this recording delightfully pulls influences from 50's group harmony whilst injecting Motown's innovative arrangements skills. A wealth of strings zip around has an uncredited male harmony, later to be honed for Eddie Holland's first Motown labelled 45 "Jamie" and of course a smash hit.
From, then on in, this style was the foundation of the emerging Motown sound. Rich choruses, a banks of violins enriching standout vocals and finger-clicking arrangements.

Flip it over the pace quickens, the male choruses more urgent, the strings cut sharper and deeper. You can hear that evolving sound, that set Marvin Gaye etc. on their way to hand-clapping Motown dance classics. This is early Motown genius in full swing. This disc also bristles with untapped Northern Soul potential, which ever side you drop the arm on.

Serious Motown scholars will know that the FIRST PRESS promo copy is one tough 45 to find. (it was bootlegged as this promo that counterfeit has a beveled edge run-in and pressed on flexible 70's vinyl, an obvious repro)

Before you today is the Monarch stamped April 1961 promo, showing off two pristine label and play perfect vinyl.

A rare tempting sight indeed...two strong songs from an icon of the Motown Sound, an historical disc without NS potential. It rare condition.. all those Motown collecting criteria-boxes are ticked.

Voltaires - My, My, My Baby / Movin’, Movin’  On - Bacone 9468

Voltaires

My, My, My Baby / Movin’, Movin’ On

Bacone: 9468 (45s)

In its short life Liz Bacone’s Philadelpia label crafted two killer vocal group Northern Soul dancers.

The best known is the currently revived and oh so popular “I’m Lonely, I’m Troubled” by the “Limitations”; whilst this much silkier and rarer release is slowly emerging to take it’s place.

Much more my style of Northern Soul as it bathes in glorious vocal harmonies crocheted into a fluid arrangement. A exquisite melding of seamless pitches of male voices forge a simplistic but spectacular dance groove.

Then you flip it over and the flipside is every note as addictive. Presenting a double helping of classy, delicious Northern Soul. Which in our experience is the rarer of the labels seldom seen 45s.

One for the DJ who appreciates the subtleties of top drawer vocal-group gliders, rather than the crash, bang whallop of the more obvious Norther Soul stomper.

I just adore BOTH sides of this elegant harmony session.

Exciters

Blowing Up My Mind / You Don’t Know What You’re Missing ( Unitl It’s Gone )

RCA: 47-9723 DJ (45s)

Herb Rooney leads his three ladies through their most potent Northern Soul offering. Which is saying something if you glance back over the previous 5 years, this group only gave up electric performances of pure dance.

Their biggest hit, Bert Russell Bern’s “Tell Him” placed them firmly into the headlights of the USA Soul/R&B fan.

Their prestigious move from Roulette to RCA should have elevated them to greater success. Although Rooney’s craft with the pen was immense they failed to emulate their success of 1964.

Excepting for the British passion for the fired-up Soul dancer. During the very early 70’s “Blowing Up My Mind” was a monster all nite club favourite. So much so, just like Roy Hamilton’s “Crackin’ Up Over You”; Select-A-Disc of Nottingham commissioned a limited press of the two current inter-tunes to service UK demand circa 1972. Fortunately for the serious Northern Soul collector these two reissues carried a different release numbers of 48-1035 and 48-1034 respectively.

Before you today of course is the original 1969 promo in stunning condition.

Spy the beautiful image, then unleash a tsunami of Soul Sister energy that Herb Rooney instilled into all his creations.

Eddie Spencer - If This Is Love (I'd Rather Be Lonely) / You're So Good To Me Baby - Arc 1206

Eddie Spencer

If This Is Love (I'd Rather Be Lonely) / You're So Good To Me Baby

Arc : 1206 (45s)

With The Precisions original Detroit version on Drew, now firmly cast as an all-time Northern Soul Top 500 classic, by cramming dance-floors all over Europe.
Eddie Spencer's across the border to Toronto version is edging up in value and kudos. Rightly so as it is 100's of times rarer than the Drew issue and arranged by the Motor City magician Mike Terry. His arrangement makes his 4 hour journey North, as he replicates the Detroit Sound adding "meat & 2 veg" to this production, losing not a drop of it's spellbinding power. Indeed shimmering with an inventive and superior string section. As Mike Terry incorporates several different ranges of "strings" and see's no need for his Saxophone prowess to be used.

Playing this take, the DJ's receive the same explosion audience participation, with a little more added kudos. Adding this Canadian VINYL press is no easy find, especially in this near clean unblemished condition.

With an added bonus of the flipside, giving up punchy gritty Soul. A real screamer that Eddie Parker would have been proud of; surely this is the best way to own "If This Is Love ( I'd Rather Be Lonely ". With the muscular flipside..
George Daris & Robert Rowe without Mike Terry draw from the "Memphis Sound" on this Canadian penned Northern Soul stomper. Riding on bass-line guitar dance-rhythm, Eddie's rasping vocal is the perfect foil for those blasting horns. "Soul Man" styled guitar picks keep on poking through the backing decorating the arrangement even further... and it all jells together into one slab of overlooked Northern Soul.

Two strong sides on this much-rarer version, guided by Mike Terry., pressed in vinyl.. so many reasons for the Eddie Spencer 45 to be your preferable hot-box resident.

Gino Washington - I'm So In Love / blank - Atac acetate

Gino Washington

I'm So In Love / blank

Atac: acetate (10")

Direct cut 3:33 minute Detroit 10" acetate from the desk of Atac Records Gino Washington and his consistently brilliant team.

Check out those razor-edged strings as they slice into Gino's Soulful delivery. Gino recollects his meeting his true-love. Comparing her to the bitter cold of the Detroit streets, but wherever she walks she melts the ice.. Painting a picture of true love and admiration as they reach a milestone in their relationship. With the Davis Sister adding weight to the arrangement with sweetly pitched harmony choruses.

There is no doubt Gino Washington was a gifted Soul Poet, another in a long line of extreme talents that emerged from this city of turmoil and strife for the black artist. This offering, I rate as his most poignant as his classic production matches those heartfelt lyrics. Top-drawer Northern Soul crossover, on offer here as a unique 10" acetate.

Not only a killer slab of Detroit Northern Soul, it also carries significant Motor City historic kudos also. Cut at the Holland - Dozier - Holland "HDH" studios, in a coverted old threatre at 12813 Grand River Detroit. Building is no longer there, but this acetate is testament to Holland - Dozier - Holland work after leaving Motown in 1968 embarking on what was to become a triumphant journey of faith.

Note even though this lady was a Soul Diva to the MODS during the 60's with fully 4 Chess classic Club-Soul tunes under her belt release on British Chess. The poster maker spelt her first name "Fontalla" insatead of "Fontella" but I do love the throwback psychedelic shaping of the lettering.
