Possibly her rarest solo 45 — vinyl looks VG+ just a little crackle at start

Looks mint, couple of small background pops. Lots of writing on flip side label.
 
PAUL KELLY — CHILLS AND FEVER — DIAL DEMO EX- 20
This plays brilliantly and is a rare white demo, but it has possibly the most bizarre message written on the label: “I shall be covered” — don’t ask me.  Also has F F on label.  Great copy to play or listen to though.

Old Torch / Cats dancer

JIMMY RUFFIN — HOW CAN I SAY I’M SORRY — SOUL EX- 20
Nice copy
 
CONNIE HAINES — WHAT’S EASY FOR TWO IS HARD FOR ONE — MOTOWN DEMO EX 25
Might be my eyes but centre hole looks a tiny bit bigger than usual! 
 
BOBBY PATTERSON — TILL YOU GIVE IN — JETSTAR EX- 15
Fast dancer
 
DEAN PARRISH — TELL HER — BOOM EX- 20
West Coast styrene press. Gold ‘deletion’ mark on label. Nice copy.
 
THE COMMODORES — THE ZOO (THE HUMAN ZOO) — MOWEST DEMO VG+ 15
Must be pretty scarce on US original demo, I can’t remember having one — intro is crackly on both sides
 
CHUCK JACKSON — THE DAY MY WORLD STOOD STILL — VIP EX+ 10
Some good underrated stuff by Chcuk from when he was with Motown
 
ELAINE HILL — IS IT REALLY WORTH IT — RSVP EX- 20
Good oldie that never really did much — same girl as Lainie Hill
 
THE CORVAIRS — LOVE IS SUCH A FUNNY THING — SYLVIA DEMO M- 25
Nice double sider

BIG MAYBELLE — YESTERDAY’S KISSES — SCEPTER VG+/EX 20
Same comments as above — fantastic version
 
THE CHELL-MARS — ROAMIN’ HEART — JAMIE DEMO VG+/EX-  25
One or two light background pops
 
CAROLYN CRAWFORD — WHEN SOMEONE’S GOOD TO YOU — MOTOWN EX- 30
Brilliant, like all her Motown 45’s…drill hole in label, record plays NM
 
THE EMBERS — IT AIN’T NECESSARY / AIN’T NO BIG THING — BELL EX 30
Both sides have some minor scuffs but play absolutely fine
 
GIGI & THE CHARMAINES — POOR UNFORTUNATE ME — COLUMBIA DEMO EX- 20
Couple of marks but plays as new throughout
 
HONEY & THE BEES — WHY DO YOU HURT THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU — ARCTIC VG++ 30
A little crackle on intro, some ringwear to label
 
JANET & THE JAYS — LOVE WHAT YOU’RE DOING TO ME — HI DEMO EX- 15
Nice dancer
 
LANDY McNEAL — COUNTING ON YOU BABY — COLUMBIA DEMO VG+/EX 20
Bit of an odd one, makes a noise for the first 10 seconds but I can’t see anything wrong with it — fine as soon as vocals come in — has the good B side too, Stand Up And Be Counted, VG++
 
LOU JOHNSON — UNSATISFIED — BIG TOP EX- 15
One or two non sounding marks, plays perfectly
 
PAULETTE & THE CUPIDS — HE’LL WAIT ON ME — PRISM DEMO EX 50
Rare girl group dancer from Chicago.  Small writing on label (circle around centre hole)
 
THE ROYAL PREMIERS — WHO AM I WITHOUT YOUR LOVE — TOY DEMO EX 20
Nice doo-wop style dancer, and rare on a white demo
 
THE STAGEMASTERS — BABY I’M HERE JUST TO LOVE YOU — SLIDE VG++ 15
White and blue original with Chips promo sticker, plays absolutely perfect

West Coast demo — one or two very minor background pops
 
TONY MIDDLETON — MY HOME TOWN — ALFA DEMO VG+/EX 15
A little crackle on the intro — tough white demo
 
TONY AMARO & THE CHARIOTS — HEY BABY / RUNNIN’ AROUND — LOMA DEMO EX 15
Two uptempo dancers, light paper scuffs
 
WITCHES & THE WARLOCK — BEHIND LOCKED DOORS — SEW CITY DEMO VG++ 15
Forgotten nowadays — but rare on a white demo
 
AS ALWAYS THESE HAVE BEEN PLAY GRADED, FOR THOSE WHO STILL CAN’T GET A HANDLE ON THIS — IF I SAY THAT THE RECORD LOOKS VERY GOOD BUT ACTUALLY PLAYS MINT — THEN IT DOES!  IT WILL BE PRICED ACCORDINGLY — NOT AS A MINT RECORD BUT AS SOMEWHERE INBETWEEN VG AND MINT.  A RECORD CAN LOOK LIKE IT CAME OUT OF A SKIP AND STILL PLAY SUPERBLY.  I SHOULD KNOW, MOST OF MY COLLECTION LOOKS LIKE THAT…WITH MOST OF THEM IT’S THE INTROS THAT HAVE A LITTLE NOISE
LABELS ARE CLEAN UNLESS STATED.  ONLY THE A SIDE (THE NORTHERN SIDE) IS GRADED
