Chubby Checker

You Just Don't Know (what You Do To Me)

the vinyl WOW factor has just rushed through me!

Unissued in the USA - UK Pye gave this 45 life in 1965 as a B-side, and ultimately selling virtually nothing on release.

Those 60s Soul Pioneers turned market stall foragers, junk shop rummages, cut out bin flickers; playing both sides of anything and everything just hoping for a "sound" that could be the next "Soul Dance" discovery.

This example is of course the very pinnacle of those teenage adrenaline fueled searches.

In 2012 to encounter a copy in flawless totally unblemished condition is truly remarkable - act accordingly.

Never Give Up On Love

Reworking a favourite doesn't always hit the right note, but this sultry, sweet, slick and smooth adaption of Ronn Matlock's "I can't forget about you" is masterful in both production and fluency of performance. The effortless delivery of the exquisite vocal laid over the familiar melody is truly delicious. Classic sweeping strings, plaintive horns and sophisticated arrangement equals modern soul perfection.

This white label promo offers several mixes, the soulful play being the Mike Patto produced Radio Mix. A downbeat 2 step anthem, guaranteed to give goose-bumps, this is also much in demand for the house edit.

Released in 1997 on Exploding Plastic records, this highly collectible white label is rarely seen for sale as collectors keep it under lock & key. Rumour has it that eventual releases were all sold on a London market stall when the label went under.

Blues And Soul

Blues & Soul # 17 March 1969

One of the really elusive first 20. Front cover is Otis Redding not for the first time featured with a horse.

This 1969 issue highlights for the Soul Historian the level of demand for re-issuing Soul rarities due to DJ generated demand. May alone saw near 20 45s. inc: Astors - Candy, Spellbinders - Help Me, Rex Garvin - JB, Darrell Banks - Open The Door To Your Heart etc.

1969 was truly the peak for British Soul fans - and all-night-club attendance

John Abbey & Peter Trickey review new releases inc: Z. Z. Hill's UK only "Make Me yours" etc

Artist pics & articles on: Joe Tex, Junior Walker & the All Stars. Curtis Mayfield, Ben E. King.

Live concert review + pic of Billy Stewart @ Royal Tottenham 24 January 1969.

Artist pictures of the Van Dykes, Esquires, Johnniie Taylor, Jean Stanback, Theresa Lindsey, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Temptations, center page spread of Stevie Wonder, Joe Stubbs ..

On top of all that info are the 1968 readers poll results for all categories.

Out of all the early Blues & Soul I consider this the most interesting &informative, as always a wonder column from Dave Godin of course!

Perhaps more inciting are the Record company adverts shimmering with retro images and design. Action, Island, Atlantic, Deep Soul, Chess & Tamla Motown all have eye-catching ads that are pure-pop-art!

Flamingos

The Boogaloo Party

Very RARE 1966 original first press UK Philips # BF1786

By early 1967 this disc was the most-wanted of all UK soul release 45s. Being released and deleted almost simultaneously. Leaving only the lucky few with a copy, quickly making it's way into the hands of all-nite club DJ's to rise up into a Twisted Wheel, Mojo, Nite Owl MONSTER!

After all this is total 60s Soul dance music of the most vibrant kind, with demand rising to fever pitch, in 1969 Philips re-issued this classic on #BF1786 note this release # was kept the same throughout the 70s & 80s as Phonogram continually re-issued.

All old-school British Soul vinyl gathers will testify that the 1966 BF1483 it is one very rare and historic 45 - in flawless condition, so tough to acquire.

Major Harris

Call Me Tomorrow

I'm just reaching that stage of my life, where I'm finding my car keys in the fridge and a slab of butter in my coat pocket!

But I'll never forget the Saturday afternoon when the Melton Mowbray &Stamford crew set off for the Blackpool Mecca in the comfort of a mattress laden Transit Van!

Butch the driver had just received a sales cassette tape from Simon Soussan full of new discoveries! Lou Ragland was my instant favourite, quickly replaced by The Steinways but by the 5 hour mark Major Harris was the King of the C90.

As if it was yesterday that haunting electric guitar intro, Major effortless vocal purring those simplistic lyrics... today it still has the same effect.

Shiver inducing Northern Soul, in an irresistible format, pressed in durable heavy duty vinyl; as opposed to styrene. Gorgeous isn't it, but not as gorgeous as the memories it has left me and so many others members of the early 70s vest-brigade.

Now, where did I put that Betamax remote control....?

Chris Clark

Love's Gone Bad C/w Put Yourself In My Place

Seekers of the clean, tidy and rare TMG's in their original jackets, here is another fine copy of one of those elusive little critters that continue to elude.

1966 non-hit shows Chris Clark in an angry mood as here "Love's Gone Bad" the flipside is her wonderful version of the Elgins & Isley Brothers timeless classic "Put Yourself In My Place".

Two 100% Holland - Dozier - Holland sessions giving this talented blondie 2 "Soul Sounds" to strut her undoubted prowess into.

Ernie Wheelwright

In Your Arms C/w Begging You Back

So very, very rare is this treasure from Atlanta Georgia.

This gritty, grinding Rarest Of The Rare offers an expressive soulful vocal cradled by a finely tuned male vocal group (most likely The Sheppard Brothers) creating a Northern Soul platter of primitive greatness!

Already enjoying a huge underground cult following with this copy just begging for the right DJ to give it that little bit more exposure it's own rarity has denied it so far.

Chances to own records of this calibre are seldom witness - do not pass by

Pearls

Shooting High C/w Can I Call You Baby

Herb Miller's work on this now iconic Indianapolis vehicle, spawned some of Soul's most-wanted, least-seen 45s.

Just like his highly coveted work with The Vanguards, this serious rarity by The Pearls is another vocally slick delight that seamlessly cruises along on a wave of shrill girl-group chorus and a lead crooner of the highest calibre.

With the bonus of a haunting-soul-ballad straight from the top-drawer on the flip, this 45 underscores Herbie Miller's obvious abilities.

Do you want to hear something extraordinary?

Click the sound file and sink into a groove with no obvious comparables.

WARNING. The chance for ownership of records of this quality comes along so infrequently, this 45 could well be added to your list regrettably missed-vinyl, never to be seen again.

Roosevelt And The Seven C's

We Were Always Sweethearts C/w Black Cat

Absolutely DOG-RARE!

Northern Soul Crossover at it's most pleasing. A clean & clear soulful vocal darts in and out of a trumpet and hammond arrangement littered with a subtle but shrill girl chorus, then a trumpet break of pure ecstasy! Stunningly gorgeous NS Crossover.

Flip it over and it's the Boogaloo/Funk fans turn to get excited as Roosevelt attacks Brian Augers MOD classic "Black Cat" and again the trumpet & organ rule, but not completely as Roosevelt ups his vocal and rasps defiance and angst in liberal quantities.

If anyone can point me to another disc that offers such fine Trumpeting within Northern Soul please tell me; I just LOVE IT!!!

Papa And The Uptopias

Cry For Joy

The fastest growth genre within the UK with rare-soul collecting at the moment seems to be "Sweet Soul Harmony".A long standing demand has always been enjoyed in the USA and JAPAN.

If your a long-term vocal-group-harmony fan or a Brit Soulie joining the in vogue sound, listen to this impossible Layayette Thomas project from San Francisco.

After the novelty intro, droning brass opens the way for some soul-rap; and then this beautiful recordings rises Phoenixesque, gliding into Soul-Group harmony greatness with a precise blend of pained vocals that deliver something really special.

an awesome example of the genre, rare in the extreme and in the type of condition the discerning collector dreams of.

FLAWLESS!

Sophisticates

I Can't Stand It C/w I Need You

We will not linger long mentioning, the now well know dumping of the MUTTlabels remnants @ Bob Mayes emporium in Detroit.

But we must draw your attention to this collectors piece that has for some inexplicable reason been just that for over 3 decades. The handful that entered the country in the early 80s seemed to have been diverted by the NSJock, do not pass go and get file in the collection.

Today this 45 rarely comes to market, but we think you'll be shocked by the sheer class that lies in the grooves of this Motor City girl group masterpiece.

BOTH sides just give it up BIG! The need for it's long overdue renaissance with Northern Soul will ignite it's potential into something to talk about.

You can't argue with really great music - can you.

Martha And The Vandellas

Dance Party

This offering is the MONO press 1965 tml11013 featuring 12 the groups recordings up to her then latest release "Nowhere To Run" .

Including a few out of the ordinary and exclusive tracks. Nobody'll care, Mobile Lil The Dancing Witch, Dance Party etc.

Martha's rarest British album release is just beautiful condition. Neat clean cover back and front, original inner sleeve, two perfect labels, vinyl only reveal the lightest of blemishes in strong light.

Very tricky to acquire in this condition.
