The lure of the rare BLACK RCA stock copy presents itself again - an area of Northern Soul collecting dedication, that even after 40 and more years is stronger than ever.

The quest to acquire these works of art, these masterpieces of label design, is all the more difficult; as unlike the PROMO copies, when between 20 / 30,000 promotional copies were mailed across America and the world for review and play at radio stations. (I've found as many as 10 copies of the same promo, filed inside Radio Station libraries" so do the math.

But the STOCK copies of these Northern Soul 45s that never received airplay, were only purchased by the most fastidious of Record stores, who ordered everything from the release sheets. Hence the desire to own your Northern Soul classics in their rarest form, has never wavered through the decades. RCA Blacks are invariably the rarest format for these RCA 45's.

This is of course a Pied Piper production, who are in many collectors opinions the greatest Soul production machine of all time. The beginnings of Ray Monette & Michael Campbell with Ray becoming a founder member of Motown's Rare Earth group. And of course timeless NS classic, but also so much more than that wearing these black clothes. It's a work of art, a thing of beauty, that could spend more time in the palm of your hand than on the turntable..
