Britain's rarest Real-Soul Album.

The seriously elusive 1966 British SUE press, that never shows for sale in acceptable condition.

Essentially this 16 track Real-Soul masterpiece, is an extension of the 1964 legendary Sims album "Soul, Soul And More Soul" underlining Guy Steven's total commitment to bringing R&B/Soul music to the streets of London. Only omitting I'll Still off the Sims album 1.Love You 2. You're Mine. Guy added in 6 post 1964 tracks turning this project of the heart into an unparalleled 16 track UK Soul album mostly engineered by the iconic Rick Hall.

Universally considered by Soul scholars as one of the greatest Soul albums ever compiled, and by British collectors as the most difficult and rarest British Soul LP to acquire. The legendary UK Sue label imprint lifting it another level of collectability.

Condition Report

The fragile all card, non-laminate sleeve, like the Barbara Lynn, Bob & Earl albums are notorious for being rarely witnessed in anything but worn condition. This copy has two crisp, bright unblemished, SUE labels (see images). The vinyl is exceptional, Mint minus with full gloss revealing just a few sparse, soft hairlines , as you can hear it plays superb throughout. play tested as i just had to hear the whole Soulful experience in its entirety.

The cover reveals soft storage wear, the bright lime green background has some faint storage grime, the back cover some occasional peel. Inspect images, we've graded it vg+, no splits, writing, stickers or stains. It is a cover as y=we said prior, that is notorious for being "impossible" to locate in a clean state, due to its manufacturing material. Soft card, bright but low density ink, storage rub seems inevitable.
