Modern/Disco/Funk/Northern Soul 45’s

Lucy Stone - Giving love instead of gold - Fire Mountain / EX / OFFERS over £400 (Big demand for this Spaceark related 45. So hard to find 1980 LA release.)

 

Jimmie Ellis - Baby I love you - Ride / EX / £400 (Highly sought after gritty crossover soul. Very hard to find in this super clean condition.)

Mind & Matter - Sunshine lady / I’m under your spell - M&M / EX / £350 (Superb copy of this classic modern soul 45, which used to be super rare. Now in vogue again with Numero Uno just releasing some previously unissued sides by this group.)

 

James Monroe - Frontiersman of the galaxy - Magic Touch / EX / £250 (Super rare 1977 Chicago release, and an excellent quirky crossover soul dancer. Clean copy!)

Troy Johnson - I want you - Soul Beat / EX/VG / £250 (Evergreen LA modern soul dancer. Nice copy but with a couple of small issues - both sides of the label has some light stains. Still looks neat. The less interesting flipside has a long scuff which is inaudible except in the last seconds of the outro.)

Jay Player - Love is the answer - Bevnik / VG+ / £200 (Classic 1982 modern soul dancer. Vinyl has some light marks but plays well.)

J.B. Bingham - All alone by the telephone - UA / EX / £150 (Promo copy of this stone modern soul classic. In beautiful shape and complete with company sleeve.)

Emanuel Laskey - I’d rather leave on my feet - DT / VG+ / £125 (Vinyl is EX except a mark on the long version side creating some faint occasional pops towards the end of the song.)

W. King Cole - I wonder why - Micron / VG / £75 (Jamaica original of this crossover soul dancer. Red and green label copy. Vinyl has many light marks but plays ok with just minimal, occasional distractions. Label is worse with writing, staining and tear.)

 

Mellow Decision - Accept me in your life / Do what you want to - Melodycision / VG / £60 (Rare Michigan soul, one side is a ballad the other side is funky disco. Vinyl has many light marks and the ballad side plays with occasional light surface noise. Disco side plays better.)

 

Malcom’s Locks - Get up stand up - Old Town / EX / £50 (Clubby soul version of the Bob Marley hit.)

Ray Munnings - It could happen to you - Tammi / EX / £45 (UK original of this excellent Miami disco funk dancer. Promo copy in great shape.)

George Franklin Smallwood - Disco lady / The best love of my life - Smallwood / VG / £30 (Just lovely double header with one dance and one slow side. Vinyl has scattered light marks. “Disco lady” side plays with light noise and pops in the beginning before clearing up nicely.

Soul/Funk/Disco Albums

 

Black Heart - Jigsaw - Guinness / EX/EX / £90 (Classic Guinness title with the funky “Slow down”. And two superb soul tracks - “So in love” and “Feel the need in me”.)

Bobby Hutton - Piece of the action - Abc / EX/VG+ / £75 (With “Lend a hand”. Rare triangle logo issue. Cover has light damage on upper right corner. If distracting it’s easy to turn it into a cut corner copy.)

Bill Brandon - s/t - Prelude / EX/EX / £70 (Great 1977 soul/disco album. Standouts for me is “Just can’t walk away” and the feel good dancer “You made my life so bright”.)

Greg Clayborn - The G. man from me to you - Gee / EX/NM / £70 (Superb copy still in shrink of this rare 80’s album. With “TLC” and the boogie dancer “Cream puff”. Vinyl is like new but has a slight warp not affecting play.)

 

Darrell Banks - Is here! - Atco / EX/EX / £70 (Superb copy of this classic 1960’s soul album. “Here comes the tears”, “Open the door to your heart”, “Our love (Is in the pocket)”, “Angel baby”, “Somebody (Somewhere needs you)” etc etc. Mono original with blue and yellow label.)

Darrell Banks - Here to stay - Volt / EX/EX / £35 (Promo copy of this solid Don Davis production. Cover has small cut out hole, apart from that a pristine copy.)

Maxine Brown - Out of sight - Epic / VG+/EX / £70 (Highly sought after album arranged and produced by Mike Terry. With the popular dancer “Don’t leave me baby”. Also includes her great takes on Sam Cooke’s northern soul side “Sugar dumpling”, “Sunny” and Wilson Pickett/Bobby Womack’s “I’m in love”. B-side is clean but vinyl on A-side has cosmetic marks, still plays well. Back of cover has promo stamp. Stereo copy.)

Maxine Brown - We’ll cry together - Commonwealth United / EX/EX / £20(Great looking white label promo copy. With the funky “See and don’t see”)

Willie Hutch - Soul portrait - Rca / VG+/EX / £45 (“Lucky to be loved by you” + “Ain’t gonna stop” and more. Vinyl is clean from scratches but A-side has odd looking staining but plays well. Cover has cut out corner.)

J.J. Barnes & Steve Mancha - Rare stamps - Volt / VG+/EX / £30 (Absolutely solid Detroit soul album! Solid listening throughout. Original release for “Sweet sherry”. Promo copy with promo stamp on back cover. Vinyl has some light sleeve marks but plays well. Label has address stickers from previous owner.)

Oscar Perry - Moods of the man - Crazy Cajun / EX/EX / £15 (1978 album including two superb tracks - “Come on back to me” and “Playboy side of town”. Vinyl looks clean but plays with occasional light background noise, think this is due to a combination of poor quality vinyl and poor mastering.)

Independents - Chuck, Helen, Eric, Maurice - Wand / EX/EX / £10 (With the superior version of “Lucky fellow”, essential crossover sound. Great copy still in shrink.)
