S.o.s. (Soul On Saturday): Northern & Modern

Recommended Posts

Hi, Soul Selecters, hoping you're up for t'Cup today as the two towns that did so much to give birth to the music we know as Northern Soul do battle at Wembley; will it be won over 90 minutes? Or will it turn into an all-nighter as Wigan Casino's XI stomp all over Manchester's Twisted Wheel XI, team selections still to be announced. Meanwhile, here's a list of Northern & Modern Soul sevens for your consideration. Please phone 0161 834 7783 to order or reserve anything or post us a reply through Soul Source, thanks.

 

1. Love Shop - TATE (Cloverstreet).........a belting, all-action Mod-beat Northern dancer bursting with play-me-ness!...........£150

2. I Wanna Come Home To You Baby - TOMMY BRYANT (T-Neck).........VG++.........sure to become hot stuff if any hard-working DJ got behind this smart dancer which also has the instro on the flip........£35

3. Two -Time Loser - BRENTON WOOD (Double Shot)......VG++............nothing defeatist about this very likeable mid-paced Northern Soul dancer, a winner for sure if played out, the scene needs fresh infusions of of classy but un-costly sides like this.....................£20

4. Safe And Sound - FONTELLA BASS (Checker)..........Mint-........there was a heck of a lot more to Fontella than "Rescue Me" but you don't get to hear owt else, thus making all those other great sides still on the cheap side. This is an absolute blinder with an almighty Northern Soul backing that'll have you wondering why its "new" to you; give it a spin and watch the Take Off begin.Needs to come off the Guilty Pleasures list!...........£15 (SOLD)

5. I'm Coming Home - THE TEMPTATIONS (Gordy).........VG++.......if you're looking for something to play after "Party Time Man" then, to quote Dennis Edwards himself, don't look any further as this happy, upbeat Gordy goody won't lose the mood you've created............£10

6. Gotta Have Your Love - THE SAPPHIRES (ABC-Paramount).........VG++.......Wigan Casino classic (1-0 to Latics as Searling nods one in)............£35

7. Hey Little Girl - MAJOR LANCE (Okeh).........VG++.............£12 (quick reply from City as a big Twisted Wheel favorite equalises straight from the re-start, drilled in hard and low from 25yds. by Roberts)

8. Oh Baby - NOLAN PORTER (ABC)..........VG++.......£35

9. Show It - BETTY HARRIS (Sansu)..........VG++...........£30

10. You Can't Bypass Love - WILLIE KENDRICK (RCA demo)........VG++........Wigan Monster surges out from deep midfield and a defence-splitting pass finds Searling un-marked......2-1 to Latics)..........£75

12. My Baby Left Me - JOANNE KING (Coral demo).........VG++.............£75

13. Lonely Heart In The City / That's What You Said - JOHNNY MOORE (Blue Rock).......two brilliant Northern Soul sides that aren't total unknowns by any means, "Lonely Hearts" needs immediate airplay, can't fail to please...............VG++...........£20

15. Inspiration - THE DELLS (Cadet)...............VG++...........£40

20. Superlove - DAVID & THE GIANTS (Crazy Horse)..........VG++..........Wigan mount another attack with this all-nighter classic that was a constant floor-filler back in 73/74 but fail to find the net this time......£40

21. Just A Little Faith And Understanding - THE MAGICIANS / I Don't Want To Take a Chance - WEE WILLIE WALKER (Kent/6T's 25th Anniversary Special)............Mint-.........£125

24. OO Wee Baby I Love You - FRED HUGHES (V-J)............VG++..............a real Roots Of Northern dancer whose rumbling piano intro isn't heard often enough...............£15............and with only seconds on the clock remaining here comes....

25. Yum Yum Tree - BOBBY BLAND (Duke)..............the ball lands at the feet of Jock Heron who plays this Twisted Wheel favourite whenever he can, he glides one way, sidesteps the out-stretched leg of Evison and BOOM........thunders a rocket-shot into the top left-hand corner of the Wigan net.....3-2, job done..............................Mint-...........£20

 

Many thanks for wading through the list, so 3-2 to City eh? We'll see! Keep The Faith,

 

Carl (Beatin Rhythm).
