56 Soul/r&b/funk/modern/latin/popcorn 45's Great Prices


Recommended Posts

A bit of something for everyone. I’ve included a wide range of styles from soul,latin,funk to 50’s/60’s R&B & jump blues,popcorn and even a smidgeon of reggae.

I could have loaded up the appropriate you-tube clips but it tends to take ages to load and can cause some servers to crash. Anyhow most 45’s listed here have been uploaded to you tube already so are easy to check out there!

Please PM or email ‘funk45@fsmail.net’ to reserve or buy or if you have any questions: Fast payment overrides reserve I’m afraid.I’ve been let down too many times. Thanks for looking — Hope you find something!

  1. Tammi Terrell / Brenda Holloway  : All I Do Is Think About You

Label : Tamla 45 (re-issue) Condition: Mint/Unplayed £15

A Paul Weller favourite that he memorably compiled on the back to back compilation ‘Lost & Found’ with the Northern soul DJ Keb Darge. Maybe the most beautiful tune ever released by the great Tammi Terrell, which is saying something considering her immense output. This song made all the more tragic by her death at such a young age.

  1.  Third generation — mother nature/Love is gonna rain down on me (Prison soul) 2nd issue release from Numero taken from the original master tapes with original Label artwork   Mint £7.50

A pensioned high school art teacher with a strong social conscience, Ellis Haraka applied for an opening at Georgia Industrial Institute in 1974, a minimum-security prison camp in Alto, Georgia, to teach remedial reading and GED preparation. After selling the warden on converting the art room into a rehearsal space and rescuing gear from a defunct music program, Haraka watched Georgia Industrial's band form spontaneously. Inmates Roderick Willis, Linwood Moore, Michael Cody, Eugene Bostic, Willie "Shoeshop Slim" Zackery, Kenny Rewis, Eddie McCluskey, and Rufus Amis thus formed The Third Generation, rehearsing regularly with Haraka through 1977, who then painstakingly arranged for a field trip to Atlanta's Precision Studios. "Love Is Gonna Rain Down On Me" b/w "Mother Nature" was issued with the group's own PRISON SOUL banner, and over the next few years the group disbanded naturally, as members completed their jail time and rejoined civilian life.
