Email me directly on mail@resolutionrecords.co.uk or PM me thru the site..

M is only for reissues / new releases

M- is a pretty much unplayed record for me – any obvious signs that a record has been played and I usually downgrade to an EX+

EX+ is a very strong grade for me – just showing some signs of being played but no noise / cue burn / crackle / styrene burn at all.

VG+ is for records that have obviously seen some wear and have had a good few plays and may even have light intro crackle but play very, very well.

VG is for records with quite a bit of wear and surface markings and some noise / crackle but still a very good player

VG- is my lowest grade and VG- records for me are in bad shape – lots of sound quality deterioration and many, many surface marks – not nice.

Sorry that I've been unable to upload any actual scans / mp3s this List – time just ran out…just let me know if there's anything you need to see / hear and I'll email it straight over or upload it – ok?

All of the available YouTube links are underneath each item in red – just hover your mouse over the link and when it turns blue click on it and it will take you directly to YouTube.

Milt Buckner 'Why Don't You Do Right' / 'Fever' (Bethlehem / USA / 1960s / M-) £15

( Fantastic 'Soul Jazz' double-sider from Milt – topside is am excellent keys-led, vibes heavy version of the Mark Murphy fave while the flip is a great / unusual version of the 'Fever' classic – again – wonderful organ and vibes interplay there – in a Bethlehem custom baggie and 99% unplayed so far as I can see…

Sunburst 'Good For You, Good For Me' (Big Apple Boogie / USA / 1970s / Ex+) £30

Dale Dennard 'Bullet' / 'If You Can Live With Yourself' (Coach / USA / 1972 / Ex+) £50

Virgil Henry 'I'll Be True' (Colossus / USA / 1970s / VG-) £20

( Fantastic mid-paced 70s Northern Soul…sadly, this one's a bit rough – has had a lot of plays but – trust me – plays just fine – with a bit of crackle and some scuffing…don't buy this if you are fussy on visual condition…however, it will definitely do the job till a cleaner copy comes along…exceptional tune… )


Johnny Dankworth 'Moanin' (Columbia / UK / 1960s / VG+) £5

( Grrrrrreat Jazz Dance version of the Bobby Timmons cut from JD and his Band… )

Right the way back from Chubb Rock thru to Peanut Butter Wolf and into the present day……STUNNING COPY IN ORIGINAL CONTEMPO CUSTOM SLEEVE – first copy here since 2007…..and – if anybody's interested, I strongly believe the melody on this is based around War 'The World Is A Ghetto'…

Manzanita y su Conjunto 'Camino A La Puna' / 'Asi Asi Asi' (Dinsa / Peru / 1960s / VG) £10

The Upsetters 'Enter The Dragon' / Joy White 'Lady, Lady' (Dip / UK / 1974 / VG) £10

( Pretty rough copy here – sorry, kids – middle is dinked too – from the period when Scratch was obsessed with Martial Arts – brilliant Black Ark stuff – flip is also outstanding as it's actually a vocal version to the topside…plays well above grade – looks bad and plays just fine…very, very tricky to find… )

7042 -

Valorie Keys 'Listen Here' (Double Shot / USA / 1960s / Ex+) £40
