Updated list - if you want a few from the list I'll cover shipping

 

 

 
Welcome to the second of my sales lists, which are sent out every three months. Just like last time it's a mixed bag with the best tunes from all aspects of the soul spectrum. Deep, Sweet, Funky, Crossover, Norhtern, Tittyshakers, Popcorn, Modern, you name it, it's in here. 

 
 

All the records from the list come with scans and soundfiles of the actual records, so I hope you'll have fun with the list and maybe get to know some new sounds.  If you have questions about these records don't hesitate to ask via PM or via mail diggindave (at) hotmail (dot) com. And if you can't get enough of these, I've got some more in stock in my store: https://stores.ebay.com/Diggin-Dave-45s

 

Shipping is £5 to anywhere in the world, for any number of records from the list. Int'l signed for shipping is £10. For those going to the Hamburg Weekender: I'll be there with a few tasty sales boxes and can put records from this list aside and give 'em to you there.

 

The grades I use are: M-, EX, VG+, VG, VG-, G etc. I try to grade conservatively, so the VG and VG+ records should look and sound pretty good, but with the soundfiles you can judge the sound quality yourself.
