***All solds struck through and now offers invited on the rest...ta...MRez*** Resolution Records Set Sale List Tuesday November 16th, 2010:

PM or email me on mail@resolutionrecords.co.uk

SOUNDFILES - PLEASE NOTE!! My own 'unique' soundfiles are all taken from the actual copy/s of the record offered for sale but 99% of MP3s don't always sound so good - this is unavoidable. MP3s are so highly compressed that the quality drops whilst also highlight even the tiniest flaws and minor defects in the records but these are NOT scratches/clicks so please do NOT take this as a sign that the records are in bad condition because they are not. Even M- and unplayed stuff doesn't sound great because of the compression - my written gradings are a more reliable condition guide being 100% honest and as accurate as I can make them so please read them carefully.

List categories are set out as below, and, if you feel I'm too expensive on anything, just make me a 'fair' offer - you never know...

(1) 7″ singles:

(2) 12″ singles:

(3) LPs:

Sleeves graded first where applicable

(1) 7″ singles - all genres:

Bobby Penn 'High-Heel Sneakers' (50 States / USA / 1960s / M-) £10

( New one on me? Excellent, upbeat 'Swamp-Funk' version of the old Robert Higgenbottom classic here - really works well - excellent girlie backing and a great, raspy vocal performance from Bobby himself...stone, STONE mint DJ copy... )

7001 - scan | soundfile

Alvin Cash 'Doin' The Creep' (77 / USA / 1960s / M-) £10

( Again - new one to me...and I thought I'd had / seen all of this 'Funk Masters' 7" output but nice to be surprised here - great cut with twanging guitar and solid r-section - cool girlie vocals too - must say the wah-wahs on this are ace...stone mint M/S WD copy here too.... )

7002

Lenny Williams 'Sho Doo Fu Fu Ooh' / 'Problem Solver' (ABC / UK / 1977 / Ex+) £5

( Nice copy of this much-loved Northern Soul / 70s 'feelgood' tune - was HUGE on that scene as a new release... )

7003

Ray Charles 'I Don't Need No Doctor' (ABC / USA / 1960s / VG+) £15

( First copy of this in a few years now - still a stunning, stunning 45 - just an instant floorfiller - looks a bit rough but plays more like an Ex copy with only very minimal crackle here and there...TUNE............with The Raelettes sounding mighty FINE on the backing too... )

7004

Bobby Scott 'Pity The Poor Man' / 'White Line' (ABC Paramount / USA / 1960s / Ex) £15

( Outstanding, raucous, full-on R&B double-sider - from 1962 at a guess? Great backing from Don Costa and an exemplary vocal performance from BS on both sides - would sound SO great on a big system...few crackles here and there but nuttin' major - turn the volume UP....!! )

7006 - scan | soundfile

The Virtues 'Meditation Of The Soul' (Andee / USA / 1960s / VG+) £15

( I've no idea who / what inspired these Phillysoul journeymen to write a "Sitar Funk" tune but I'm very glad they did....I have a dream of one day doing a whole 'sitar' set with stuff like this and Dave Pike 'Mathar', Dorothy Ashby 'The Moving Finger', Asha Puthli, Ananda Shankar etc etc - one day, I will...few marks / scuffs on this but it plays one while grade better than VG+...irresistible... )

7009

Beverley & Duane 'Take A Ride' (Ariola / USA / 1979 / Ex) £8

( For me - this is THE best cut on their indemand LP - lovely, lovely little floater which just sucks you in after a few spins - totally infectious 70s Northern that always goes down well when played out - few scuffs and marks here and there cause minor, minor crackle here and there but in no way impinges on the overall enjoyment of this superb 70s Soul tune... )

7010 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=UvF93eHTxGk

Willie Rosario 'Watusi Boogaloo' (Atco / USA / 1960s / Ex+) £40

( Willie wrote the book on Latin dance! This man was a Big Apple L-E-G-E-N-D back in the 60s and it's so refreshing to see stuff like this getting played in clubs again - joyful, irrepressible and completely evocative tune that is just impossible to dislike - beautiful WDJ copy here - flew out last time I listed it...

7012

Aretha Frankin 'Save Me' (Atlantic / UK / 1967 / VG) £5

( I was reading about 'Lady Soul' online a few days back and the writer described here as 'THE greatest voice of the 20th Century' - difficult to argue against that statement, as this tune will testify. Just unmissable - and again, impossible to sit still when this kicks in. Sadly this one's not in great shape - scuffs / marks all over and the middle has been dinked bit it's still a great player...mighty tune.... )

7013

Ruth Brown 'I Burned Your Letter' / 'Don't Deceive Me' (Atlantic / USA / 1960s / Ex) £20

( Ditto the above - another GREAT voice - unmistakeable vocal technique and here on a stone-gold classic slice of good time R&B - just brilliant and I'm now beginning to love some of this early-Soul stuff - it really is like a breath of fresh air...few marks / scuffs here and there but has very little effect on the sound quality....love it.... )

7014

John Edwards 'Claim Jumpin' / 'Careful Man' (Aware / USA / 1973 / Ex+) £8

( 2 good tunes from John - one written by Sam Dees / Bill Brandon and the other by Jimmy Lewis - lovely copy here... )

7017 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=Dk2bFaOc5dI

Executive Suite 'When The Fuel Runs Out' / 'You Got It' (Babylon / USA / 1973 / M-) £10

( Outstanding 'Proto-Disco' outta NYC - strong shades of early Patrick Adams / Cloud One here - all pumping basslines and quirky keys and floating vibes (Vince Montana, Jr? Sounds like him...) flip is also ace - unplayed copy here... )

7019 http://www.youtube.c...%E2%80%99+&aq=f

The Dynamics 'You're The Only One' / 'Woe Is Me' (Black Gold / USA / 1974 / M-) £10

( 2 of THE best cuts from their rare / indemand 'What A Shame' LP - excellent Soul music.... )

7024

Donald Byrd 'Change (Makes You Wanna Hustle) Pts 1 & 2' (Blue Note / UK / 1976 / Ex+) £8

( Peachy to have this one in on a 7" - must be rare!!?? Blue Note hardly ever put out 7"s...and this is just a big, long, lovely ride on the Mizell Bros bus all the way round the World and then back to Don Byrd's studio - few marks here and there but plays reet good - Mizells = Genius = Happy Mark Rez... )

7025 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=EBVgRuUwkVk

Midnight Movers 'Can't Stand The Heat' / 'Mississippi Foxhole' (Buddah / France / 1974 / Ex+/M- £8

( Nice French pic baggie issue for these 2 great Funky Soul cuts....lovely condition... )

7030

Johnny Thunder 'I'm Alive' (Calla / USA / 1960s / M-) £30

( Best version by a MILE for me - fuzz-drenched and raucous - Johnny gives it LARGE here....stunning condition - massive Mod tune from day dot - don't miss this...!! )

7032

A Taste Of Honey 'I Love You' (Capitol / UK / 1979 / Ex) £8

( From the harp-led intro with the big string washes right thru to the strident guitar part and hooky piano, as soon as this kicks in you KNOW you are in for a happy 3.5 minutes of listening pleasure...this List is becoming a right old 'Mark Rez Fave Producers Special', innit? Tommy Stewart, David Axelrod, Patrick Adams and NOW here come those Mizells again - just pure, pure Studio magic on this track - it's making the hairs on the back of my neck stand up now just listening to this as I type!! Wonderful 45 that truly doesn't come up for sale too often and on an even rarer demo too - slightly crackly here and there so keenly priced for y'awl...T-U-N-E............... )

7035

The Invaders 'Stop Teasing' / 'Invaders At The Carnival' (Columbia / France / 1960s / M-/M-) £25

( Rare French pic sleeve for these 2 cool Laurel Aitken written-produced Skin Reggae sides - immaculate condition... )

7040 - scan | soundfile

Grand Strand 'Laredo' (Creative Arts / USA / 1970s / M-) £60

( South Carolina funk obscurity with a Modern Soul edge, flip is folk/funk soul. Still very unknown at the moment, could take off in the right hands...obscure as hell...great brass.. )

7041 - scan | soundfile

Soul On Delivery 'Crescent Boogie' / 'Hustle (Dance Of The Day)' (Decca / UK / 1975 / Ex+) £15

( More great UK Funk - both sides have their different merits - 'Hustle' is my fave with more of a driving beat and heavy basslines - 'Crescent Boogie' is more varied with some great brass, bass and drum parts and some cheeky strings - file alongside F.B.I, The Glitter Band, Cymande etc betc - absolute cracking Drumbreak on 'Hustle' too - a brilliant little double-sider...very, very tough to find...nice copy here... )

7042 - scan | soundfile

Pleasure 'Ghettos Of The Mind' (Fantasy / USA / 1976 / Ex) £8

( Csomic Jazz Funk from Wayne Henderson & Co - slightly ruff copy (tatty labels) so priced low....

7049 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=K1Pw12Gw9VA

Floaters & Shu-Ga 'For Your Love' (Fee / USA / 1975 / Ex+) £15

( More lovely 2 Step Soul this List - and this one's always been an indemander - has all of the classic ingredients for a good Stepper - deep, deep basslines, male / female vocal interplay and staccato backing + rising brass - cracking tune - my first-ever copy...sorry that this Youtube link is so lo-fi - it sounds very bright on my 7″ here... )

7050

Dotti Wright 'Eclipse Of A Lover' / 'Pain Of Love' (F-M / USA / 1960s / M-) £50

( 2 great Femme Soul sides here - topside is much-collected Xover Soul while flip is stunning Deep Soul...outta Chicago from, at a guess, 1970? Lovely condition and apart from that, I can tell you next to nothing else about this hopelessly obscure USA 7"... )

7052 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=vzXuHIuUDxY

Irma Thomas 'She'll Never Be Your Wife' (Fungus / USA / 1970s / Ex+) £5

( S/S demo copy of this down-home, grits 'n' gravy-styled belter from another wonderful vocalist - plods along beautifully... )

7055

Morris Jefferson 'One More Time' / 'It's The Last Time Around For Me' (Good Luck / USA / 1980 / Ex+) £15

( More niceness from the Windy C - this label is a subsidiary of GEC who gave us Starvue, Heaven and Earth etc etc - 2 classy midpacers on this 7" - wonderful instrumentation and a tremendous vocal performance from MJ - I believe he was actually lead singer in Heaven and Earth - anybody confirm/deny? Few minor scuffs - otherwise completely clean... )

7056 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=n6AtfJRTFTI

Reuben Wilson 'I'll Take You There' (Groove Merchant / USA / 1974 / M-)£8

7057

Walter 'Wolfman' Washington 'You Got Me Worried' / 'Good And Juicy' (Hep' Me / USA / 1960s / M-) £20

( Excellent (and rare!) Bluesy Funk which also has a strong dash of Soul in there too - I ain't a big Blues fan but this is good - with Moogs, Clavs and some nice guitar work without being too dull and repetitive like a lot of Blues can be - a goodie folks - seems unplayed... )

7059 - scan | soundfile

Holland-Dozier 'Why Can't We Be Lovers' (Invictus / USA / 1972 / M-) £8

( If ever the clichd descriptive word 'Classic' was fittingly used, here is the occasion...lovely copy.... )

7062

Willie Fisher 'One Way Street' / 'Disco Street' (Jama / UK / 1983 / M-) £20

( Nuther great little funky disco tune here which just bops along magnificently - Stu Gardner production - the Disco version is actually pretty 'Cosmic' with rising synths, rolling basslines and breathy femme vocals - really, really nice tune and so much rarer on UK press than any other format...first-timer for me...

7063 - scan | soundfile

T.H.A.T. 'Lady, Lady' / 'What Goes Around Comes Around' (Jeree / USA / 1983 / M-) £20

( From the same label that gave us the mighty Family Of Eve 'Please Be Truthful' comes this tasty little double-sider - topside is a real good dancer - set at mid pace with wonderful vocals and fantastic backing while the flip is more downtempo but is equally worthy - seems unplayed...

7064 - scan | soundfile

T.H.A.T. 'I'll Be Forever Loving You' / 'Sweet Lady If Mine' (Jeree / USA / 1984 / M-) £20

( Ditto the above - 2 more good sides - topside ihere is more of a 2 Stepper though and sounded really warm and bubbly as I played thru it today...again - inplayed copy... )

7067

Joey Gilmore 'Got It Together' / 'It's My Own Fault' (Lauderdale Int / USA / 1975 / M-) £25

7069 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=ZOUi0bvxnTQ

The Philadelphia All-Stars 'Let's Clean Up The Ghetto voc/inst' (PIR / UK / 1974 / Ex) £5

Sounds like James Brown jamming with Rhon Silva....killer Deep Funk - many are called but few are chosen... appears 99% unplayed? Someone has written 632 on the label - my guess is that this is the USD price somebody recently paid for this...just realised what the intro on this reminds me of too - Danser's Inferno 'Sombre Guitar' - imagine doing a DJ set with these 2 mixed in back-to- back - PHEW........... )

So cool - one of Marvin's MOST Cosmic recordings (and he did a few!) and it really is a totally 'free' jam with so much going on in the backing that it makes me feel dizzy just listening to this again - lovely / rare Tamla WDJ copy here - unplayed...has to be rare? Possibly never actually got fully released and went to Radio Stations only? )

Eddie Harris 'That Is Why You're Overweight' (Atlantic / USA / 1975 / Ex/M-) £15

Mark Murphy 'Who Can I Turn To' (Stateside / UK / 1960s / Ex/Ex+) £15

( Rare UK LP on MM - boy, he looks young on the sleeve - he's in real 'Jazz' mode on this one and - as you know - I LOVE Mark's voice 'My Kind Of Girl' and 'This Train' were the standouts for me but the buyer can judge for himself - sleeve is a bit crease-y but the wax is lovely...from MM's 'Mose Allison' period... )

The Bar-Kays 'Gotta Groove' (Volt / USA / 1969 / M-/M-) £25

( Their rarest LP? I believe so - it's just pure Funky Soul all the way...breaks, bass runs, drums - it's got the LOT... )

The Harrell Singers 'There's A Land' (Hob Is Gospel / USA / 1970s / Ex+/M-) £50

( Haunting Gospel LP that includes the tremelo-led Deep Gospel Soul of 'There's A Land' a massive fave round here and the lead track from Beaver's recent 'Hold Out (Keep The Faith) compilation. There are 3 more killers on the LP as well, all equally as dark and deep. Please note that 'Wright' is written on both the front and back cover in biro....one of THE best Gospel Soul LPs on the whole circuit... )

Quinn Harris & Masterminds 'All In The Soul' (Reynolds / USA / 1970 / M-/M-) £200

( 'Nuther GRAIL this List - you will not believe how clean this LP is if / when you buy it...incredibly, this is still in it's shrinkwrap...this guy was a musical scholar @ Berkley in the late-60s and this amazing Funk / Soul LP was his "piece de resistance"...'All In The Soul' is actually a twisted-up version of 'California Soul' which will blow you away...if you are into indie / underground music and also a Soul / Funk lover then I urge you to buy this LP - you will not regret it...ignore the '3 for $1' sticker on the sleeve, ok? )

sf13

Ramp 'Come Into Knowledge' (ABC / USA / 1977 / M-/M-) £60

( Still in it's shrink...'Daylight' , 'Everybody Loves The Sunshine' etc etc....®oy (A)yers (M)usical (P)roductions... )

sf17 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=5Mk4OyoPEIc

Gordon Staples and the String Thing 'Strung Out' (Motown / USA / 1970 / M-/M-) £40

( Want the truth? I've never actually even SEEN this LP before...........so hard to source and deffo one of the RAREST Motown LPs around - again - still in it's shrinkwrap - Funk all the way with some amazing string arrangements from Gordon himself and a whole plethora of Motown stars on hand to lend support 'Strung Out' is the tune but the whole thing is simply bonkers...deep bass, clavs, funky drums and massive string washes - what more can ya want...also known by Motown "boffins" as 'The Motown Strings' )

sf26 http://www.youtube.c...h?v=nxriu9p2Aj8

Richard 'Popcorn' Wylie 'Extrasensory Perception' (ABC / USA / 1974 / M-/M-) £75

( Beautiful copy - barely a mark on wax or sleeve - and it's a white promo too...again - not seen one of these around here in about 10+ years - title track is stunning Xover Soul...sleeve design is so bad it's good if you know what I mean...? Seen at well over £150 on the evil one lately.............. )

sf29

The Harvey Averne Dozen 'Viva Soul' (Atlantic / USA / 1968 / Ex+/Ex+)£50

lb02

The Harvey Averne Barrio Band 'The Harvey Averne Barrio Band' (Heavy Duty (gatefold) / USA / 1971 / M-/M-) £50

( He'd grown his hair by now and wigged out -I believe this was the VERY first reissue Acid Jazz ever did back on the late-80s? Again - the quality is on show for all to see 'Girl From The Mountain' , 'Para Ti' , 'Heavy Duty' etc etc...beautiful copy here too... )
