Rainy City Soul: Modern & Northern 45S

Recommended Posts

Hi, Soul Lovers,

                          Fats Domino wasn't a resident of Northern England but he knew the score:"It Keeps Raining", a Twisted Wheel evergreen that sums up Manchester perfectly. Brollies up and heads up, here's an All Weather list of Northern and Modern Soul sevens for your consideration.

 

1. Ain't No Soul (Left In These Shoes) - MAJOR LANCE (Okeh)...................picture sleeve...........VG++.............£35

2. The Bottle - GIL SCOTT HERON (Strata East).............Mint-................1975 French release in picture sleeve with spoken intro, a giant sound for Richard Searling 1976/77........................£40

3. You're Not Loving A Beginner - JESSE FISHER (Way Out)..................VG++...............£120

4. Put Your Love To The Test - MALCOLM HAYES (Filmways demo)................VG++...................£145

5. That's The Way Love Goes - ROBIE PORTER (MGM)............Mint-..............Charlie Rich-style white soul vocals, deep and resonant, with a very strong Northern soul backing. Had this been by Rich then we'd have heard much more of it long before now, instead this this bargain's after me, won't set me free! Top contender for future honours and enjoyable nights out..............£25

6. With these Eyes - THE FABULOUS PEPS (We Three).................Mint-.................£80

7. Looking For The Right Guy - KIM WESTON (Motown)...........Mint-.............looking for the right DJ more like as this bouncy, thumping Motown Northern Soul dancer needs more frequent spins, being a guaranteed floor-filler......................£25

8. One Wonderful Moment - THE SHAKERS (ABC demo).............Mint-.................the first ever taste of Northern Soul for many a young feller-me-lad via the youth club DJ, but even so, welcome stuff when you weren't old enough to go to The Torch or Blackpool Mecca.....................£55

9. Just In The Nick Of Time - TONI LAMARR (Buddah).................huge Wigan Casino floor packer 1975/76..........................VG++........................£25

10. Independent Woman - JAN JONES (Day-Wood)..................Modern Soul rarity with anthemic qualities..............Mint-..............£250

11. Soul Man Blues - LES WATSON (Pompeii)................classy, mid-paced beat ballad into Northern dancer which even contains a decent little sample-worthy break-beat..................Mint-................£40

12. Devil With A Blue Dress/Good Golly Miss Molly - MITCH RYDER & THE DETROIT WHEELS (UK Stateside, 1966)...............VG++.............a no seat belt Northern Soul dancer that exceeds the speed limit and then some..........................£25

13. The Fife Piper - THE DYNATONES (HBR)............VG++..............ever-popular Twisted Wheel instrumental that never loses it's charm, hence the crowded dance-floor upon hearing the deep bass intro.............£12

14. It Won't Be Easy - VONCIEL MYERS (Gaynote)................Mint-...............super-rare......................£450

15. He Will Break Your Heart - TIMOTHY WILSON (Veep)................VG++..................£65

16. Hey! I Know You - THE MONZAS (Pacific)................Mint-...................£65

17. A Sad Goodbye / You Got The Power - THE FOUR EXCEPTIONS (Parkway demo)...........Mint-..........$90

18. I Don't Mind - CAROLYN COOKE (RCA demo)........VG++...................£60

19. Bumble Bee Sting Me / Days Go By - BOBBY BENNETT (Philadelphia Int.)...........VG++............eee THIS IS a rare Philly single and sure to be well above this price in the next few years. Why? Well the topside's a classy Modern Soul two-stepper with no pretensions of being half-Northern while the flip "Days Go By" is a sought-after ballad with an incredible sampler's dream intro and Bennett's vocals are similar to David Ruffin's after an all-day Sunday Session....................£25

20. Love Is Good - THE BUTLERS (Gamble)...............Mint-...................lovely late 60's Philly dancer still to be given its Northern soul rite of passage, a feel-good mid-tempo affair similar to The Winstons' "Colour Him Father".........................£25

 

That's right love IS good, so if you see anything here that suits you please send us a reply or phone 0161 834 7783 (10.00 am - 5.15 pm) to order or reserve an item.

Many thanks for looking at the list, Carl (Beatin Rhythm).
