Huge Northern R&b Popcorn Funk List. All With Sound + Scans

Diggin' Dave

Recommended Posts

I haven't posted anything in sales for a few months because I've been very busy, but in the meantime I've always been on the lookout for quality 45s and I've been able to buy a few small collections too. The quality tunage was piling up so I decided to spend a whole weekend selecting, recording, scanning researching everything I needed for this list.


It was hard to resist the urge to party, but I'm very pleased with what I've done instead. The result is a sales list of 109 45s in all various soulful genres (Doo-wop, modern, popcorn, R&B, Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, ... you name it, it's in there).


Shipping to anywhere in the world for any number of records will cost £5. I apologize in advance for the high shipping costs, but that's the actual amount I have to pay to send a record to the UK.


I'll cover paypal costs.


If interested or if you have any questions or requests don't hesitate to PM. I'll answer asap. First member who PMs about a certain record gets it, and I can keep on hold for up to a week.



Enjoy the list! There's some lesser known things in here that are worth listening to. And if you can't afford them just try to enjoy the soundfiles. I'll keep 'em online if you want...

Hi Dave,


I know this thread is from 2009 but I am looking for the Tri-Tones record you listed on the Miss Julie label "Teardrops" It does not say sold so I was hoping that by some chance it might still be available.
