November Sale List

Posted

Dear all,

I don't normally put these lists on message boards as I prefer the immediacy of an email list, but I thought I'd give a few of you who haven't signed up to the list the chance to see what's in the collection (or more accurately what's coming out of it). Lots on offer this month. Feel free to make trade as well as cash offers. The list is a mixture of funk, soul, R&B and modern but the descriptions should give you a good indication of what the tracks are like to save you downloading each and every one. I am also beginning a kind of 'bargains' section at the end of the list, which should continue for the next few lists. Hope you like it!

All record orders should be sent to: r o o k i e s r e c o r d s b t i n t e r n e t c o m

If you want to permanently subscribe, just drop me a note to the email address above. I will return to email lists next month.

These sales lists will be irregular, but I will try and notify people a day in advance of the list so that everyone has time to get their offers in. All lists will go out around 3pm GMT, so that both the US and Japan are awake (or at least should be).

PLEASE NOTE: I'm not a full-time dealer, I have a fairly busy job and so can't guarantee a next day delivery. However I will endeavour to get all 45s out within 5 working days of cashed payment. There have been 1 or 2 instances where I've been a bit longer if work gets too busy, but I've always sorted those people out with freebies.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: My audio setup is distinctly '20th Century', therefore the recordings do tend to play with a slight hum and all crackles are emphasised due to the enhanced top-end on my soundcard. In other words, the records play better than they sound on here.

I do accept trade offers and generally offer 70-80% of the price I'd sell them at. In terms of cash offers for 45s, I can offer around 60-70% of my sales price, depending on the item.

Grading:. M-: ..as new, bar very small deteriorations commensurate with the age of the product

Ex: ..one or two minor marks, only 1 or 2 slight light ticks, if any

VG+:.some visible marks, but not excessive. Some deterioration of sound (a few pops and clicks) but playable at home, and at clubs

VG: ..as above, but with more visible marks and slightly worse sound. Still playable though

VG-:..noticeable deterioration in sound, and/or badly water-damaged label. Would grate a bit at home, but could feasibly be cleaned up for play in clubs

G+, G, Poor: .its downhill from hereon in.

Payment: I accept paypal for r o o k i e s r e c o r d s b t i n t e r n e t c o m . Please contact me if you want to pay in any other way.

LABEL...ARTIST......TITLE.....CONDITION..PRICE (£UK).

Soul/Funk/R&B/80s 45s

A&M...Sisters Love.....Rise.....M-...30

Description: currently quite an in-demand item it seems. For good reason - this is a solid female crossover soul/funk record with chunky backing and great harmonised vocals

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_01.mp3

Active...Sweet & Innocent & Memphis Mustangs..Cry Love/I Don't Know What Youre Full Of.M-...50

Description: the one everyone wants - delicate crossover soul-cum-ballad.

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_02.mp3

Alglobe...Rickey Lance.....Razzle Dazzle....VG+...20

Description: Barry White inspired modern soul/crossover track. His other 45s seem very collectable and have reached £100+. Some H2O damage on label

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_03.mp3

Atco...Eldridge Holmes.....Pop Popcorn Children...M-...30

Description: devastating dancefloor funk

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_04.mp3

Atlantic...TSU Toronadoes.....What Good Am I?...Ex...12

Description: probably one of the best crossover records ever made full stop.

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_05.mp3

Attic...Patsy Gallant.....It'll All Come Around...M-...35

Description: rare groove anthem - so hard on a (Canadian only) 45

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_06.mp3

Big Star...Ellen Jackson.....Getto Boogie....M-...150

Description: lo-fi outsider funk, which for all that kills it on the dancefloor. Has figured prominently in various 'funk top 10s' over time

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_07.mp3

Birth...Bogen Richard.....I'm My Own Man....M-...30

Description: raucous uptempo funk outing, which has the lot - belting male vocals, upfront drums, scratchy guitar and all the rest

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_08.mp3

Black Gold..La Jay Alexander.....What Cha Gona Do...M-...25

Description: sophisticated 70s funk that will have its day. Definitely has that 'now' sound

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_09.mp3

Carlisle...Destiny In Time.....Visions/Dance....M-...75

Description: fabulous modern soul winner with a funk edge. Seems to be very rare

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre....uk/nov2_01.mp3

Cat...Little Beaver.....Listen To My Heartbeat...M-...75

Description: record of the moment - uptempo modern soul mover

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre....uk/nov2_02.mp3

Central...Louis Chachere.....A Soulful Bag....Ex...75

Description: ballsy Hammond boogaloo funk. Once appeared on a Big Daddy CD I recall. Actually a very hard record to find

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_10.mp3

Cigar Man..Esquires......What Good Is Music...VG+...8

Description: once went for silly money on eBay, but has since settled at a more modest level. Probably a steal at this price

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_11.mp3

Columbia..Gloria Taylor.....Deep Inside You....M-...30

Description: ballad with a beat perfection. A hard one of hers to find. Fantastic atmospheric soul for the connoisseurs

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_12.mp3

Dash...Phillip Wright.....Keep Her Happy....M-...offers

Description: one of the most in-demand records on the scene at the moment. Still getting hammered on the soul scene, and a big play amongst all the top dogs. No time limit on the bid - I'll just accept what I consider to be a reasonable offer

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre....uk/nov2_08.mp3

Epic...Final Touch .....I'm Ready To Give Up My Love..M-...50

Description: how to price this? Listed high in Tim's book, but has struggled to make that price at auction. This is probably a decent stab at - what is - an excellent example of 70s Northern in a 'My Baby's got ESP' style

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_13.mp3

Friends...Esther Williams.....Last Night Changed It All...M-...30

Description: wanted on so many scenes - funk, Hip Hop, crossover soul, rare groove etc. A class 45

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre....uk/nov2_03.mp3

Genesis...Larry Hart.....Going Up In Smoke...M-/M-...15

Description: how long till this actually takes off? Gets big props, but never quite seems to get plays. Great version of the Kendricks classic. Has the right sound for todays dancefloor

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_14.mp3

Glorma...James Thomas Society....Be Somebody....M-...100

Description: so rare! Absolutely fantastic modern soul and hugely in demand. So obscure

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_16.mp3

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_17.mp3

Hi ...Majik......Back Into Your Heart...M-...75

Description: sold my last ones for £40 and sold them all. Little wonder, given they were going for $150 on ebay. Just got one back in - price reflects my sudden realisation that this is now a very in-demand item. Modern soul in a King Tutt, Bileo style

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_18.mp3

Hit Sound..Sammy Ridgley.....Locked Up....M-...125

Description: paid double this for mine. But a couple showed a year or so ago. Still - this has everything you'd want in a Northern Soul 45 - driving rhythm, great horn stabs and such a great vocal.

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre....uk/nov2_04.mp3

Hot Licks..Rideout......Someone Special....M-...100

Description: modern soul winner that has all but dried up now. Still a lot of heat on this

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre....uk/nov2_05.mp3

I-Dentify...Momie-O.....You're Welcome, Step On By..M-...25

Description: brilliant female crossover record

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_20.mp3

Keynote...Eric Rapier.....Cant Stop Dreaming...M-...20

Description: great 80s stepper

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_22.mp3

Kimberley..Marvin Holmes.....Find Yourself....M-...50

Description: killer midtempo funk - relative to his other 45s, this is a real b***er to find

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_23.mp3

Kon-Kord..Patterson Twins.....They're Playing.......Ex...15

Description: oddball modern soul obscurity

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_24.mp3

Lantic Gold..Continentals.....Funky Groove....VG-...100

Description: killer boogaloo funk winner. Total obscurity - not even on the DC funk website

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_25.mp3

Larkin...Firstborn.....Mood Club....M-...5

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_26.mp3

Magnum..Hank Alexander.....Our Secret Love....M-...10

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_27.mp3

Description: great stepper

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_29.mp3

Mutt & Jeff..Cal Green.....Revolution Rap....M-...15

Description: should be played at full volume outside Goldman Sachs head office. Always loved this track - the vocals are just so eerie.

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_30.mp3

North Bay..Family......Nation Time....M-...4

Description: so how many of you actually own this? Or know what it sounds like? I have to confess I had forgotten - and was pleasantly surprised. A great little funk 45

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_31.mp3

NWI...Blue Gin......Light Blue....Ex...85

Description: last copy flew out. Just recently found it again at a nighter (whilst on Steve Cato's stag to be exact). Monstrous Hammond funk grinder - very much in the Mickey & Soul Generation mould. Dog rare

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_32.mp3

Okeh (demo)..Cheers......Take Me To Paradise ...Ex...60

Description: currently on heavy rotation round the country. Two great sides - one Northern the other Crossover. Check the clips...

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_33.mp3

Peacock...Willie Tomlin.....Check Me Baby....M-...20

Description: ghetto ramblings over a surging soul/funk backing. Wet myself when I first heard this. Oddball pimp funk

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_34.mp3

Project 3..Derek Smith & Venus....Don't Let Go....Ex...10

Description: great funk clubber

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_35.mp3

Real To Real..Mist......To Survive Another Day...VG+...offers

Description: never, ever seen or heard about this 45 before in my life. Sounds like the kind of thing a Soul Sam or someone of that calibre would play. Bouncy modern soul with great soulful vocals. Again - will listen to reasonable offers

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_36.mp3

Renaissance..SD Ivy......Same Thing....M-...10

Description: beat-laden, head-nodding stuff. Obscure looking 45 - actually looks like a Hip Hop label. The drums are quite simply ridiculous. One for the B-Boys

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_37.mp3

Right On...Seleno Clarke.....Stimulation....VG+...75

Description: and talking of B-Boys, this is an obscure funk cut with a monster break. Check the soundclip for a listen. Bona fide original.

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_38.mp3

Sensational..Robert Vanderbilt....A Message Especially From God..Ex (warp NAP)..60

Description: a definitive 'ballad with a beat' cut. Sparse production and atmospheric vocals. The production actually reminds me of some of the obscure indie stuff like Galaxy 500 in the early 90s.

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_39.mp3

Solar...Reuben......I Am Drum....M-...30

Description: psych rock funk - whatever you call this, it's a belter. The drums are mind-blowing

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_40.mp3

Soul World..Willie Hooks.....Take It Easy On Me Baby...Ex...30

Description: getting plays apparently, and much higher on other websites. Great R&B Northern winner. Slight warp NAP.

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_41.mp3

Southern Tracs..Flame......Rock N Soul....M-...20

Description: again - good price on this 70s funk obscurity

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_42.mp3

Steady...Eddie Lovette.....What You're Trying To Do...M-...20

Description: ***record of the list***. If you want to invest in a 45 that's going to go MASSIVE, buy this one. This has the lot - it's a funky-edged late 60s/early 70s crossover soul 45, that's still got enough grit to get people on the dancefloor. The vocals are great, the chorus as catchy as hell and its just got that extra quality. Virtually unknown at the moment - I played this at a warm up with a few guys in a bar and sold 3 copies first time I played it. Plus - this looks like his only difficult record on the label.

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_43.mp3

Super-Star..Sweet Daddy Floyd....I Just Cant Help Myself...M-...75

Description: sought after 70s crossover soul outing.

Timco ...John Timmons & Funkshun...Love At First Sight...M-...150..

Description: fantastic uptempo 70s funk dancer with tough drums and meaty bassline. Kind of like an uptempo JBs track

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_46.mp3

Velvet Sound..Taurus and Leo.....I Aint Playin Baby....Ex...15

Description: another over-looked 45. quality 60s Northern

Verdy...Image......We're Movin....M-...40

Description: classy uptempo modern soul outing, with great male vocal

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_48.mp3

Walmarc..Sounds of Amo.....Rainbow Rider....VG+...30

Description: frenzied funk rock extravaganza, and must be rare. Possibly out of Texas(?) this has everything turned up to 11

Soundclip: http://www.rookiesre...o.uk/nov_49.mp3

WRE...Frank & James.....You Got The Love I Need...M-...60

Description: in-demand uptempo modern soul cut seen for £100 elsewhere. Again - great catchy chorus
