We have spoken of the "lost" talent of this New York Diva before, a lady who could easily have become a household name, a Soul Queen right up there with the greatest ever. Unfortunately the music industry breaks never quite fell in the right directly for this vocally gifted Songbird.

He she is with her most-valued Northern Soul contribution, just like "Go Now" it's another New York session of the highest order over 10 years down the line. None of her Soulful prowess diminished in that time of few record reklreases. But this 1976 dance session was well worth the wait. As Bessie comes under the

Buckle up Curtis Lee is about to take you on a hair-raising foot-to-the-floor ride, onto the Northern Soul dance-floor.

Upturned lip, snarling vocal hangs on for dear life to hailstorm of brass, trumpeting every phrase. A wailing harmonica blows it approval of the careering, runaway backing track the rumbles at top speed to eac verse.
Not time to pause, the pulsating rhythms demand you go with it.. defying you body's limitations.. this is proper full throttle Northern Soul you just can't ignore

Amazing Dancing Band - Deep Blue Train / Simon Smith And His Amazing Dancing Bear - Verve VS 567

Amazing Dancing Band

Deep Blue Train / Simon Smith And His Amazing Dancing Bear

Verve: VS 567 (45s)

A project of the talent Jazz pianist Max Harris, a man who has made his reputation for memorable TV scores, especially that crazy Anthony Newley series "The Strange World of Gurney Slade" today considered a cult program a a window into urban life of 60's England.

But for the UK "Soul" collector it is held dear, as an early Soul club spin that eventually graced those hallowed turntables of Wigan Casino by the hand of Richard Searling who still occasionally delves into his archives,giving it a welcome radio show airing. and what an educated choice it is, as this recording was a UK only release, in need of timely exposures to remind us of our vinyl-addictive forays into town in the hope of find a copy. Of this whispered UK instrumental delight.

Max kicks of proceedings with a deceiving solo tinkle on the ivories, then the background horns creep in, becoming louder and louder, swirling strings start cutting the air and the jazzy-journey into MOD begins.. It's so typically British evoking visions of Bowler hatted, pinstripe suited, intrepid undercover government inspectors on a mission to do good against the tyranny hidden in London's streets..

SO BRITISH so very rare and full marks to Mr. Searling for keeping these rarities in the Northern Soul public eye, reminding us of our inventive past and the endeavor it took to unearth these weird and wonderful tunes..

A listing for the British collector who really knows his stuff...




UK collectors, crate-digging scholars of many decades will confirm as this BLACK stock copy it is many, many times rarer tan the pink & silver promo. In the last 25 years this is the ONLY stock copy we have ever had..

Marvin Gaye

This Love Starved Heart Of My (It's Killing Me) / It's A Desperate Situation

Tamla : 42286-0288 PS (45s)

Marvin Gaye's most-wanted Northern Soul offering in sublime condition..

Just click the sound-file and Marvin's voice will convey more in one line than I could with barrow full of superlatives..

It is after all one of the greatest Motown Northern Soul offering ever committed to vinyl.

A project by Dana Smart to aid the promotion of Marvin's 1995 4xCD compilation which included a CD dedicated to 16 tracks of Marvin's rare and unreleased.

This 45 was never intended for commercial sale and was seen as a promotional tool only, consequently the value of this limited promo has swelled year on year for over 23 years...now

Hardly surprising as it has been an explosive dancefloor detonator for two decades with no sign of it ever losing it's magical inspiring qualities.

This copy is a beautiful example complete with picture cover. Ownership is essential..

Clydie King - Missin' My Baby / My Love Grows Deeper - Imperial 66139

Clydie King

Missin' My Baby / My Love Grows Deeper

Imperial : 66139 (45s)

Not quite a MANSHIP MINT but as close as it gets..

It matters not which side you chose to drop the stylus on first. Both sides give up ravishing girl Northern Soul.

From a former "Raelette", who today is recognized as one of the most talented girl backing singers in the business. But the Soul collectors are enamored with all her work she did as a solo artist, with every 45 she released being held in high collectable regard. This is the 2nd. of her highly coveted Imperial releases working under the guidance of Jerry Riopell & Nick De Caro and the flipside co-written by long term friend Shirlie Matthews.

Both sides are fluid Big Production Northern Soul beauties, as "Motown" influenced Los Angeles wanted a piece of the "Girl Sound" phenomena. Sadly all 3 of Clydie's superior 45's on Imperial failed to score in the USA and again it was left to the Northern Soul scene to bring them alive.. and present them to a very appreciative audience..

So now click the soundfile and prepare yourself for two slick full orchestra productions of note. The side we lead with " Missin' My Baby " is "Big City" builder, a string filled production with full girl group choruses, creating a Soulful abyss to soak your self in..This is the Big City Sound at it's most riveting.

Flip it over and the "My Love Grows Deeper" the more "Motown" uninfluenced side of the two was surprisingly relegated to the flip.. as the finished product of "Missing My Baby" impressed so much.. as so often happened in the 60's what we now consider "perfect" Northern Soul languishes on the flipside.

Here is a top value 45, offering not one but two treasures of our scene, from a lady with the voice of an Angel.
