(What Are We Gonna Do About) This Mess B/W Honey Can I
Modern Soul
Darrow Fletcher
7" £10.68
Another great mid-70s soul dance track from the Zane Grey and LenRon Hanks Los Angeles song-writing period which also saw the superb ‘Honey Can I’ issued on Crossover.

I Wanted To Tell You B/W You Said
60s Soul
Little Nicky Soul
7" £10.68
Our first release in a new series of repro ‘US singles is licensed from Sidney Barnes and was originally issued in 1966 when he was still in New York. Both sides are first-rate, mid-60s soul dancers.

Sweet Magic B/W Connie
60s Soul
The Servicemen
7" £10.68
This was the first single for the group of servicemen stationed near Phoenix, Arizona. They cut it for Bob Ross’ Chartmaker imprint in Los Angeles in 1966. Two rare, classic soul dance tracks; harmony is to the fore.

Sweet Baby B/W I'll Fly To Your Open Arms
60s Soul
Various Artists (Kent singles)
7" £8.79
A first UK 45 release for Al Gardner’s Detroit 60s soul classic. The flip is a terrific previously LP-only track by Jack Ashford – the producer and writer of both sides of this 45.

Caribbean R&B Classics: Big People Music (MP3)
Rhythm & Blues
Various Artists
MP3 £7.99
Twenty US R&B classics that rocked Jamaican dances in the 1950s that helped to shape the evolution of Ska and Reggae.

Bob Stanley & Pete Wiggs Present The Tears Of Technology
Eclectic
Various Artists (Saint Etienne)
CD £11.50
Like mellotrons before them, synthesisers could project a strange and deep emotion – something in the wiring had an inherent melancholy. Previous generations had often disparaged synths as dehumanising machines but, at the turn of the 80s, a new crop of musicians appeared who could coax them into creating modern and decidedly moving music. It was almost as if these groups had intentionally set out to prove the doubters wrong.

More Long-Lost Honkers & Twangers
Instrumentals
Various Artists (Honkers & Twangers)
CD £16.33
Two-dozen rarities from the Golden Age of Instrumental Rock’n’Roll, including a whopping 14 previously unissued gems by bands such as the Ventures, Ramrods, Velvetones and Mus-Twangs. Limited edition of 1000.

La Belle Et Le Blues
Pop
Brigitte Bardot
CD £12.92
The first Bardot anthology expressly compiled for an English-speaking audience highlights the screen icon’s equally striking disc catalogue. The booklet includes a rare interview granted especially for this release.

Boogie Chillen B/W Boogie Chillen #2 (Take 2)
Blues
John Lee Hooker
10" £13.50
Just as streaming takes over, Ace goes back to the future with a numbered limited edition 78rpm 10” release. We’ll also be releasing a 71-track 3CD set of the Bernie Besman sessions of John Lee Hooker.

Hi John, I don’t have a copy in front of me but it should say a Crossover recording which it was and which it has on the Atlantic single. It wasn’t an Atlantic recording, I think this version is a little longer than the Atlantic 45 too
