Eddie Parker

But If You Must Go C/w I Need A True Love

Way-Beyond Beat-Ballad-Heaven!

The Jack Ashford / Lorraine Chandler / Eddie Parker Alliance masterminded two of Northern Soul greatest recordings, most consider the very pinnacle of the genre. "I'm Gone"Â and "I Love You Baby"Â are timeless examples of Northern Soul at it's most magnificent.

Before you today is the 3rd Soul masterpiece the team created.

Pause for a moment and consider first is EXTREME RARITY which outstrips "I'm Gone"Â on our data alone at 6 to 1 and "Love You Baby"Â at 50 to 1.

So now listen to what single-minded rare soul fans consider as one of (if not THE) finest soul experience you could ever wish to encounter.

Slow piano intro meets haunting strings, as Eddie's gravel-coated vocal eases its way forward. In true Ashford / Chandler style subtle girls & murmuring males vocals inject a platform for the Parker-vocal to spring from.

AND HOW! slowly but surely E.P. builds the atmosphere as he suddenly hits the roof as he pleads "But If You Must Go"Â leading to the killer line "Baby, How Many Bags Does It Take, For You To Leave..?"Â

For me this 45 is without question the most colossal mountain of Real-Soul ever recorded. An unequaled emotional journey of despair that will never be matched.

This is 4.05 minutes of Perfect-Real-Soul-Heaven - the flipside is strong Northern Soul but who cares...after listening to that?

Inell Young

The Next Ball Game C/w Part Of The Game

An Eddie Bo New Orleans project, offering a pairing of punchy mix of Northern Soul & Funk backed with a Deep Soul journey into despair.

Top side: Mr. Bocage creates a primitive, raw-edged funk infused soul dancer, dead right for both the Funk & NS scenes as the harder growling Sister tunes are the flavour with so many top-NS-DJ sets. Constant drumming, clever rimshots and overpowering horns lay the perfect base for Inell's sweet vocal to spring from aided by girl group choruses, this is street-level New Orleans at it's most inviting.

Flip sides: is a slow journey of hurt, portraying a young girls experiencing pain "playing the game of love"Â

We have spoken before of the wisdom of investing in New Orleans vinyl - but this killer could have been made any where on the planet and we'd window it as a "must Own"Â for any collector serious about rare soul.

James Brown & The Famous Flames

Night Train

This week's Red & White lure is the groundbreaking 1962 instrumental, that went some way to building the bridge from Modern Jazz All-night-club music to the beginnings of the MOD R&B/Soul dance-preference.

Those "Modern Jazz"Â purple-heart fueled revelers soon tapped into the wealth of product from the USA "Night Train"Â "Green Onions"Â "Last Night"Â "Walking The Dog"Â provided a few of the many tunes of the day, formulating the basis of the Northern Soul scene as we know it now.

It could not have had a better titled, to grab the attention of the underground scene - or indeed provided and stronger dance production for the leap from Jazz to R&B....and the rest of course is history.

To acquire this disc as a pristine flawless RED & WHITE promo is a serious Brit-vinyl collectors dream... just irresistibly gleaming with street-cred.

Thelma Lindsey

Prepared To Love You C/w Why Weren't You There

This weeks Northern Soul classic White Demo slot goes to this Detroit-Double-Delight.

Topside epitomizes everything real-deal Northern Soul is - potent, relentless, floor-destroying testament to dance.

But this 45 is so much more than the full-throttle foot-top-the-floor Wigan Casino stomper - because just a flip of the sides will reveal a cultured precisely constructed mid-paced soulful journey just dripping with class.

Two sides of Motor City Magic in an immaculate highly coveted WHITE PROMO form in just-to-die-for-condition.

Lindell Hill

Remone C/w Used To Be Love

Steamboat from St. Louis To Memphis, was a regular trip for many of the last centuries musicians, so it's no surprise there are several collaborations between these two Mississippi cities.

Check out this example, serving up cold and calculated Deep Soul of the man reminiscing a girl he just can't forget.

"Remone"Â - sparks off a minestrone of horns, ear-piercing church-tutored girls nourishing an expressively gritty vocal through his pains. Nick Charles & Steve Cropper then sprinkle this soulful-soup with a male vocal group infusion and the song is complete.

Memphis Deep Soul it is, at it's most empathic..

Wally Cox

This Man

This weeks Northern Soul weirdness release from around the world is currently a hugely popular NS revival spin.

Former Wigan Casino monster that packed the floor and sparked a UK Pye Disco Demand release and album track. Is presented here in it's ultimate rarest form.

A 1971 Argentinian deep groove 33 RPM 7"Â disc sporting a glorious USA Scepter design label with a small hole center.

Just looks and sounds totally sublime..

Combinations

I'm Gonna Make You Love Me C/w The Goddess Of Love

You are viewing a 45 that sits right at the top of the Northern Soul Trophy Tree..

The genius of Tee Fletcher molds double-helping of flowing vocal group grooves, encapsulating the very essence of what a truly great Northern Soul sound should sound like. Effortlessly smooth 60s dance music..

A pleading lead is cradled by a raft of male harmony support, then right on cue the horns and vibes breaks punctuate this Northern Soul beauty to perfection.

Perfection does not come cheap, especially if it is as rare as hell

Jimmy Mccracklin

What's That

A totally immaculate example of this highly sought-after R&B romp. Before you and looking so very tempting is a pristine 1961 White Demo.

An imaginative Clyde Otis & Jimmy McCracklin creation; blending J.M's rasping vocal into a patchwork a moaning male vocals and crazed saxophone wailings. The effect is a compelling R&B/Popcorn shaker of the most-infectious kind.

Little wonder this disc is so in-demand, it just ripples with dance-floor appeal!

Little Richard

Get Down With It

During Richard Penniman's 1967 UK tour, non other than Norman "Hurricane"Â Smith the "Don't Let It Die"Â man, invited Little Richard into the studio to record a version of Bobby Marchan's 1965 Miami session.

Fashioning a wild UK production for Okeh records that never achieved USA release, but has recently achieved huge Northern Soul spins, so much so it was even recently re-issued to meet demand.

Before you today is a wonderfully clean original 1967 Brit-release retaining it's original birth sleeve.

Willie And The Mighty Magnificents

On Scene 70

Just littered with NON-45 Northern Soul dance tracks.

An album that is just so darn good we've sound-filed fully EIGHT TRACKS of the 11 tracks as the stand-out examples of East Coast vocal group rare-soul - littered with an occasional funk tune adding a little spice to an already impressive platter.

Willie Feaster and the gang does it up tight and solid. With every track shimmering with vibrant enthusiastic SOUL skillfully constructed and ejected with purpose. Thais LP mysteriously passed everybody by upon release in 1970.

Northern Soul DJ's seeking something to turn heads and pump up your set, check out the soundfile , you'll be impressed..

Hyperions

Why You Wanna Treat Me The Way You Do

Oh for a chance to revisit the days in Los Angeles when you could get off a plane and visit Record Shops still crammed with 45's. THen drive I-101 for 5 hours to Modesto and meet the larger than life American Indian John Hillyard, a man with more obscure records at his fingertips than anyone I ever met before or since.

Today, John is a sadly missed legend amongst California crate-diggers and obsessive Brits who would scramble for sometimes a week; overlooking his crazy high-pitched laugh as you dropped the stylus on some really rare Bakersfield label - and that twangy Country & Western guitar rang out to be greeted by John's sarcastic mantra - "Is That Northern Soul? ..he, he, he, he"Â

I do remember the very moment I dropped the needle on this baby, John's ears pricked up "That's a bit better was his retort.."Â yes it certainly was better, another Northern Soul monster was born...when my old friend Steve Smith was at my house on my return rubbing his hands and asking "Come on Manny what'cha got for me..?"Â

Steve the DJ of course was instrumental in turning this into a Northern Soul monster!

Oh how I miss those days on the road, full of anticipation of not only the vinyl but also of spending time with unique characters like John Hillyard..

Babara Mcnair

You're Gonna Love My Baby

For ever seeking flawless labels and vinyl? Both the USA And UK MOTOWN collectors quest for a run of perfection is never ending.

So when we encounter a great tune in dream-condition, we do like to hang it up for offer. Considering what are the chances today for this 1965 47 year old masterpiece from center-fold girl Barbara, popping up for sale in pristine condition.

Both labels are totally clean, vinyl reveals under tough scrutinization only a brief light sleeve contact brush...we think this is just the thing the ultra-picky-Motown-Man or woman is looking for.

Fugitives

Human Jungle C/w Don't Play That Song

One for the British-Label-Soul soul collector who's hit that brick wall of near completeness. It' is only, the really ridiculously rare or the strange quirky items that catch their desire to own after years of boring upgrading.

So consider the 60s EMI acetate in preparation for a 1967 UK COLUMBIA release that never happened.

A Teddy Vann & Herman Kelley collaboration that was to rise to Northern Soul & Wigan Casino exposure as the USA Roulette release, ultimately emerging on Pye's Disco Demand label in 1974.

Interesting isn't it, a UK Columbia release 7 years earlier, we'd now be talking about a Twisted Wheel anthem ...not a Wigan Casino spin....

Marvelettes

When You're Young And In Love C/w The Day You Take One You Havev To Take The Other

Rarely did Motown take another girl-group's hit and give it to one of their own and create another Motown classic.

The Marvelettes version of Van McCoys Ruby & The Romantics classic swept the world in 1967 particularly going huge in Britain.

How nice it is to witness it as the 1967 British Green & White DEMO! in just sublime condition.

that linden hill seems very cheap to me. I rate it quite a bit higher price wise.

truly fantastic record and pretty tricky to find.

I would have thought that was about right. In pre-internet times it was a very tough record to find; nowadays I think those who chased it, now have it and they also seem to pop up quite regularly, not that popsike or CollectorsFrenzy shows that.
