Cheapies anyone?

Recommended Posts

Citizen P    1,029

I know that this question has been asked before but, seeing as most of us are only poor working sods, what good cheapies have you come across lately?

Just to start a few from me all under £20 most under a tenner.

Not in any particular order

Otis Redding -Look at the girl

Tommy Tate -If you aint man enough

Gene Diamond- Lonely Drifter

Rose Hargrove_ Knocked down kicked around

Maskman/The Agents - Yaw'll

Archie Bell- Where will you go when the party's over

Any more out there? I need to build a cheap collection :)

"Tomorrow" by the Webs on Popside is absolutely smashing!! Also came out on UK London, which can be bought relatively cheaply.

Also worth mentioning "I've Got Mine You Better Get Yours" by the Sapphires on Swan, available for about £20 or far less on Ebay!!

The final release on Windy C, "Change of Pace" by the 5 Stairsteps is also worth looking out for. Like all the Windy C 45s, it can be picked up for about £5, but sounds like it should be worth 50 times this amount!!

Absolutely brilliant!! Been banging this one down on the south coast for a while, I know Russ Vickers has just got one so should get further exposure.

And with superb cheapies like this, why do people need to play reissues/boots/etc (NO, i'm not starting that debate again!)

Oh well my shopping list just gets longer and longer.

On a quick count up about 50 good sounds here, that's about a third of a nights playlist.If we keep it going we should come up with a bloody good night of music all for the price of half a Shrine release.

Some Motown to carry on

David Ruffin--I can't stop the rain

Martha Reeves--Heartless

Temptations--I'm coming home

Originals--Good lovin just a dime away

Dynamic Superiors--One nighter

Edwin Starr-- Love the lonely peoples prayer

Most of these are 7ts things but the Martha Reeeves is a right old storming motown mutha.

The other side of The Sapphires is a fabulous mid tempo "I Found Out To Late".

A tenner a side, you can't go wrong.

The best cheap record i ever bought was

Bobby Bland - Aint Nothing You Can Do - Duke £7

....but only because it has 'Honey Child' on the flipside. IMO one of the most soulful gritty sounds ever, and really does sound like it's worth ten times that.

Only just heard this, this morning, liked it, just bought one on ebay for less than a tenner.

One of my fave subjects, cheap records.

Looked through loads of sales boxes through the '90s never really saw any bargains. Except maybe a beat up Dynells atco demo £30 at Canklow, no spare cash, Maggie had her lager head on.

Last few months I've managed to cross from my wants list.

Jimmy Norman, Lucky Laws. Since '93 from a Trevor Thomas tape.

Ultimations, Pinches twins tape.

Buddy Lamp, June Conquest. Old Roger Banks tape.

Tommy Cook & Fantastics. Old Saus tape.

James Brown-Money won't... Picked up on through this forum, cheers.

Jean Wells. Holgate club York.

Bobo Mr Soul. Old tape revisited. Is it Archie Bell ??

Superlatives. Browsing Manships recomended list.

Continental four, TSU Tornadoes. Valatone CD.

Joe Tex-Baby be good. Josephine Taylor-Good lovin. Heard at a barbeque this summer.

Steve Mancha-You're still in my heart. Heard Whilst browsing Soul Club.

Aside from the Buddy Lamp. $47

didn't pay more than £15 for any of the above.

Sometimes Gemm, or Netsounds are cheaper than ebay.

Craig Moerer is often cheaper than ebay.

I did the 1st hour at the Holgate club a couple of times and tried to play the cheaper side of soul.

Had I better get my coat ?? ranting_1.gif

How about inviting a small panel of Soul Sourcers to help judge?

Either that or use Johnny Ovenchips Guide as final judge... that would make it harder as most £50 are more in there......

Proposed Ground rules are:

1. U.S original 45s only.

2. Must be currently available for less than £50 in EX condition.

3. Must be 'Northern' in style.

4. Must be a Dancer.

So this means......

No UK (or other foreign release).

No Goldmine 7s.

No Grapevine.

No Boots.

No Dodgy Acetates.

No battered copies of £200 records.

No 'Oh I paid a tenner for Sam Dees' Lonely in 1988'

WOOF!

The flip of this is rather spiffing too as I remember. Buy one at a tenner and the two sides effectively become a fiver each.
