Enjoyables Shame C/w I'll Take You Back

SHRINE TIME!

And a very elusive one too - in fact our first copy EVER to be auctioned on the raresoulman pages.

Again Carl Kidd constructs a fluent vocal-group NS dancer backed with blaring horn arrangement from the furtive mind of Dale Warren. Tight harmonies, brass and simplistic cymbal work all blend seamlessly creating an infectious Impressions style mid-tempo groove.

Flip it over for pleading a Deeper Soul experience, again showcasing flowing harmony vocals woven into a similar, but slower backing track, making this a double sider of huge quality.

I was surprised by it’s rarity data, 15 - 20 years is a long time for us not to have had a record in stock, and this copy is in fine clean condition. As you can see two excellent condition labels with no flaws other than a very light fade to the electric blue. The iconic red flame logo and text are all as it should be. Vinyl has some very small light surface marks but as you can hear plays strong clear clean and true.

A much-rarer than you may have first thought SHRINE!

Del Capris Our Love (it Ain't The Same No More) C/w Love Fever

Prepare yourself for SWEET SOUL excellence - just too much soul for one man to take!

Crafted by a master of the harmony ballad. With Robbie Lawson’s - I have Searched, The Superlatives - We’re So Lonely - already considered masterclasses in 60s harmony soul, Paul L. Kyser moves into the next decade pulling experience from such recordings, to mold another astonishing ballad.

Slow instrumental intro utilizing muted horns, strings & flute before a tortured vocal opens with the line “I Used To Feel So Proud..” from then on it’s anguished regret to the end, as the lead vocal’s sorrow heightens on a raft of slick background harmony and the exquisitely arranged flute, brass & strings purrs away in the background!

Do Sweet Soul get any better than this… how could it?

Flip is a worthy Norman Whitfield inspired Temptations style FUNK dancer

Rufus Lumley I'm Standing

This 45 was the very first record I paid £10 for - remembering my weekly wage in 1972 was only £8.00 it was a breathtaking investment for an apprentice gas-fitter, but it may get me on the bottom ladder for some youth club DJ sets, i wished.

But it was only the pride of my collection for less than a week, as my friend played the guitar!

Let me explain, flatmate Paul Arnott fancied himself as a “Nick Drake” type, constantly strumming some incomprehensible tune on his crappy out-of-tune guitar, he had no soul! Which he proved a few days later; I came home from work and as always went straight to my record box - to get a vinyl fix.

HORROR! my beloved Rufus Lumley stared back at me with it’s middle removed… like a teddy bear with no arms - I’m destroyed! A bemused Mr. Arnott said not to worry he had the middle right there in his hand - now reshaped into a plectrum to pluck his freaking guitar with…

Even with this near perfect copy in my hands today - it still hurts to think I allowed a long-hair cretin to deflower my prized possession. Well that’s how much Rufus Lumley meant to me back then - I hope the new owner of this British trophy has smarter friends than I had… as the condition is gleaming!

PS. Paul Arnott you are the major reason I’ve not attempted to join “Friends Reunited”

Earl Van Dyke And The Soul Brothers All For You C/w Too Many Fish In The Sea

An immaculate 1965 British Tamla Motown TMG506 DEMO! How beautiful is that!

The theme tune created by Henry Cosby, Joe Hunter and William Mickey Stevenson, that Earl Van Dyke & the “Funk Brothers” adopted for the Motown Revue featuring in their legendary 1965 UK tour, and the opening theme tune for Dusty Springfield’s presented Ready Steady Go Motown Special in April 1965.

Other than avid Tamla Motown Appreciation Society fans this 45 sold virtually nothing on release, as The Supremes debuting “Stop In the Name Of Love” and the girls flat-hand “Stop” sign dance routine stole the show, rocketing the song into the UK Top Ten leaving the like of the lesser known artist’s flat.

This pristine 1965 UK DEMO is the ultimate way to own this recording - as the Soul 35009 USA release never got to the pressing stage, or should I say I know nobody who has seen a USA 45 one.

Motown collecting at its most challenging…

Wilson Pickett Let Me Be Your Boy C/w My Heart Belong To You

Robert Bateman long time studio partner of Brian Holland was a major influence as the Motor City 50s R&B / Doo Wop transformed into Soul with labels like Fortune, Lu Pine & Motown etc. leading the way with an upbeat feelgood big productions.

This Wilson Pickett 1962 Detroit solo session, encapsulates that transitional sound completely; as Bateman and Sonny Sanders build a kitchen-sink production with inpired use of subtle horns, zinging strings, a cacophonous girl-choir all bolstering the Wicked Pickett’s usually controlled vocal delivery.

The end result is a superb “Popcorn style” Northern Soul winner - that is only a mere note better, than the highly impressive but mostly overlooked flip side, cut in the same session. Two delicious Detroit movers

Remembering the CUB 9113 1962 press was a national release. The Verve 10378 press was essentially a re-issue put out in 1965, a “cheap-shot” trying to cash in on the massive “Midnight Hour” success, Atlantic were enjoying.

This example is by far and away the most-attractive, and of course the very rarest of it’s fully 8 different label combinations.

View the scan - and then ask yourself have you ever seen a perfect ISSUE copy lately? and this gorgeous offering is utterly flawless; you will never find a better one..

Bobby Bennett Alone With Me Tears C/w Never Goiing To Let You Go

more than NORTHERN SOUL BEAT BALLAD HEAVEN !

Top drawer rare records always without exception end up on collectors wants list worldwide. This Philly masterpiece of “The Big City Production” is not only considered the very pinnacle of Beat Ballad 45s, but is also regarded an impossible colossus within the USA “Island” scene, Belgium’s “Popcorn” cult, plus Japan’s & Holland’s “Deep Soul” happenings.

All 60s “black” music scenes hold this 45 in such high esteem, it’s value has never wavered for the last two decades - even when it was bootlegged.

So listen and hear why this record transcends all other Big Production rarities and links so many underground scenes together… a mood-changing, thought provoking, once heard never forgotten… pièce de résistance of the sound!

Truly awesome - truly, truly RARE!

PS we think the totally contrasting flipside will please Northern Soul R&B fans..

Soul Seachers Get That Church

Part 1 & 2

RARE Los Angeles Richard Berry creation offering killer 60s Boo-Ga-Loo Funk!

The church chambers emits a brief echoing shout of “Brothers & Sisters” intro, that quickly fades away as the piano rattles out and irresistible rhythm, then from the shadows enter the mad-sax-man!

The whole session fuses into a compelling instrumental straight from that mid-60s era of L.A. sessions that provided the British Dance scene with such greats as Hank Jacobs, Romeos, Packers etc. etc

Let me without hesitation underline that this 45 is THE RAREST OF THE LOT and to witness it in like new condition…is frankly amazing!

Jackie Wilson Whispers

This the Rare 1967 British mono LP press.

Everything Jackie recorded we all adore, his velvet-vocal just pulls you into whatever style he is performing. Having said that, for the Northern Soul fraternity this 1967 album is his finest 12” offering.

12 tracks including killer dancefloor favourites like 1. I Don’t Want To Lose You 2. Whispers (Gettin’ Louder) 3.Just Be Sincere *with the ADDED BONUS of 3 frighteningly good non-45 tracks that make ownership of this a imperative purchase. 1. My Heart Is Calling 2. Who Am I 3. Only Your Love Can Save Me

As the USA album it is a much-prized LP as this seriously rare UK press in fine clean condition it is a very impressive platter indeed.

Larry Williams & Johnny Watson A Quitter Never Wins

Classic Northern Soul!

But it wasn’t in 1967 when EMI continued to release selected OKEH releases through their Columbia label, it was just a B-side. To try and catch the attention of the burgeoning countrywide Soul following EMI used the moniker “SOUL SUPPLY” on Columbia, Liberty labels or “Discotheque Series ..” on Capitol.

The A-side was a forgettable Memphis inspired dirge that didn’t ignite the body to move. But it didn’t take long for the 60s NS pioneers to uncover the upbeat dance flipside. Smack! Bang! Wallop! the Mighty Duo from Los Angeles just give it up loud & powerful; relentless horns support the attitude driven pairing who spit out the message “A Quitter Never Wins” - for it to become something of a Club-anthem for the disenchanted teenagers of the era.

Before you today, is an immaculate PROMO trophy-piece dressed in that irresistible EMI green with the alluring big White “A” flaunting itself in front of you… who could ignore such beauty!

Vicki Starr Cut Me Loose C/w I Need Your Love

Relentless horn driven Funk infused Northern Soul, just perfect for the current dancefloor tastes, in this ever changing scene.

Local Mississippi Soul queen Vicki Williams, changed her stage name 3 times whilst switching local labels, in Greenville, Miss. Whether the label bills her sas Vicki Starr, Vicki Styles or Vicki Williams the result is the same; expect to have you attention aroused by this lady’s potent style!

A-side instantly moves you, bass guitar intro is peppered with solid horns, before Vicki’s no-mess vocal rides the rhythm - simplistic but totally effective dance groove I can see, in the right hands, taking the Northern Soul scene by a storm. Solid, punchy and perfect dance material, with a late on sax break that tops it all off - awesome!

Flip it over for the same instruments & girl group ingredients but a totally different groove as Vicki slows it down and dirty! Wailing girls decorate the background as Vicki bleeds the lyrics into the heavyhearted arrangement.

If you like your sounds from the streets, raw to the bone production this rarity is not to be passed by!

Mr. Percolator I Can't Get Enough C/w Come Back To Me

You will not find a more apt example of extreme talent struggling for recognition.

One of three “Perk” Badger 45s released on his co-owned street-level Miami label Wax-Wel. All three give up finely honed Soul performances covering three different genres, Deep Soul, Funk & Northern Soul. Take a listen to a strugglin’ artist that never received the acknowledgment his outstanding work deserved.

This his last release for the label, sees Mr. Percolator living up to his name, as his soulfully-harsh gravel vocal instantly permeates your space with pounding foot-to-the-floor Northern Soul. Currently residing in the DJ boxes of Soul Sam & Andy Dyson, with the later often airing it at upfront venues who’s punters receive real rarities with open arms.

But that’s only half the story, whilst Otis Redding, Percy Sledge, Arthur Conley etc. were carving out worldwide reputations, Pearstine Badger was matching all the greats, note for note with his own style of D.I.Y. Deep Soul, saturated excruciating anguish & despair.

Far too late Mr. Badger is now rightly heralded as one the the world’s greatest examples of “Lost Soul” voices.

Listen to this hideously rare 45 and enjoy a man delivers killer rare soul, what ever style he chose to perform.

Arthur Conley Shake Rattle & Roll

1967 British mono press in the near the same condition as he day it left the Polydor factory, but that is not why the album is on auction.

These pages are the perfect vehicle for promote awareness of overlooked tracks: So check out the soundfile to unleash a mighty Northern Soul dancer that did received a few plays at Cleethorpes Peir but then obscurity for nearly 40 years. I am writing about non-45 stomper

  1. Hand and Glove a storming dancer that should be gracing the more-imaginative DJ sets of today.
  2. Keep On Talking - superb version that saw no 45 in the USA or UK did however get a brief French release .

Two killer Northern Soul dancers - but do not overlook the rest of the album which is also littered with fine Deep Soul ballads.

Rufus Lumley I'm Standing ........ This 45 was the very first record I paid £10 for - remembering my weekly wage in 1972 was only £8.00

 

....... Wow, paying over a week's wages for a record made by a 'hillbilly' singer (who started out doing a cowboy song type show).

I May be wrong but I read it as £53.00

 

No, that's the Arthur Conley Steve. The finishing price for the Girl Groups Discography was indeed £3.00.

 

And, of course, anybody who thinks £3.00 was way too cheap could have logged in and had a crack at it. After all, it was on display in the 'shop window' so to speak for three weeks.
