Carrie Cleveland –Looking up to you (Cleve Den lp 14) Strong vg+ // vg++ cover in partial shrink £300

A few cosmetics hairlines, plays perfect. Includes the epic electronic soul masterpiece ‘Love will set you free’.


House Guests Rated X –What’s so never the dance // pt II (House Guests 28205) Strong vg+, minuscule warp NAP £175

Cleanest copy I’ve ever seen (bought Mint- from Sir Manship). One of the filthiest funk 45 from Cincinnati. It used to be a 1998 era funk staple, and seems to be back in vogue.


Outback –Strangers in our homeland // Reggie’s thang (Empathy 1906) Strong vg+ a few stains on label £150

Loner soul from Oklahoma, recently spun by Sami Dariush. Fragile and unique vibe, and probably my favorite record of the list, still pretty hard to locate. Recommended.


Brown Sugar – Disco dancer // Flowers in may (Shal-Tur demo 834) conservative vg £125 

Bought it as a vg+ copy. Side A is cool pedestrian modern-disco tune with heavy reverbed drums, backed by a killer –and almost psych- ballad. Relatively obscure but will surely appeal to the hip hop crowd.


Target –Give me one more chance // Cleveland (Kama 814) vg+ warp NAP £125

Absolute modern soul classic from Upstate New York with Ohio connections. This copy is untouched but suffers from a sensible warp (NAP at all) forcing vg+ grading.


Bobby Valentin –Bad breath // Love me so (Fania 445) Unplayed stock vg+ £125

B.B. does not unfortunately mean ‘Big Breasts’. Classic boogaloo dancer on a nice gold label. Unplayed copy but suffers from Fania’s low pressing standards.


The Dorrells feat. The Rocketeers –I need someone to love me // (Bronze 102) Unplayed stock vg++ £125

Super obscure 60’s girl group produced by Miami genius Frank Williams. Amazing ballad backed by a decent northern number on this barely documented Deep City sub-label.


Means of Persuasion –One way street // Be my friend (C & J ??) vg+ £100

Awesome lo-fi beat ballad with awesome vocals from Toledo legend Ike Noble. The b-side is absolutely not my taste but supposedly got some plays in some modern venues in the 80’s. Rare and great record.


Hiram & Direct –Love flight // Turn it around (Hirome 001) strong vg small wol £75

First league Detroit modern soul from the legendary Tantus Studios enterprise. The stepper flip is not to be overlooked either. Detroit condition-ish but still a pretty enjoyable copy. Much rarer than the later release as Direct Pressure.


James Dee & Pieces of the Action –Jealous over love // My pride (Enrica 1009) Unplayed stock vg++ £60

Awesome low-rider staple. Noisy pressing.


Cherryl Williams –Everybody’s happy but me //I’m your fool (Bengee 1001) vg++ Unplayed stock £50

Extremely clean first pressing copy of this northern oldie, backed by an impressive sweet soul number. 


Kings go Forth –One day // You’re the one (Mr C’s 1001) Unplayed stock nm- £50

Stock copy of one of the best release from the last 10 years.


Jerry Weaver -Testify // Mama said she ain't here (Cash In Today 8787511) nm- unplayed stock £50
Super obscure late 70's release from Jerry. Chicago gospel with Alabama connexions, hence a nice southern feel all the way through.


BlackRock –Yeah Yeah // Black cloud overhead (Select-O-Hits 006) Strong vg+ £50

Awesome Memphis black psych, one the many highlights from ‘Chains & Black Exhaust’.


Young Disciples & Co – Crumbs from the table // Girls (Getaway 16475) vg++ £40

To quote the venerable Parrish Smith: ‘Hard like concrete’ funk classic with huge drums and gigantesque groove, from the much loved St Louis staple. Decent low-rider-ish ballad on flip.


The Fabulous Peps –With these eyes // I’ve been trying (Wee 3 1001) vg++ small byro WOL £40

Virtually unplayed copy of this quintessential Detroit banger, with a nice Impression cover on the flip.


Johnny Mack –I want to leave everyday for your love // Let them talk (JMA 001) Unplayed stock vg++ £40

Excellent and semi known northern effort from Florida. Quality deep soul on flip.


Brothers of the Ghetto –Rocking Chair // Indestructible black man (Ghetto 7394) unplayed stock vg++ £35  

Hard as nails black rock from southern Illinois. Massive breaks and a huge psychedelic feel throughout.


Mercy Men –Fifth street // You made it thunder (Bee Gee 0001) vg++ £25

Unplayed copy of this quality double-sider from Kentucky. A frantic old school funk track (nice break down included) backed with a cool northern number.


The Out of Sights –For the rest of my life // Tears don’t care (Numero group-Boddie ES 043) Unplayed stock nm- £25  

Breath taking pre-Saru version of this northern monster from Ohio. Limited pressing, only available through Numero Group’s European promo tour.


Tribe –Attica // Attica (C & T 777) vg++ £25

Awesome psych soul with involvement from Curtis Knight.


A.C. Caldwell –Joy sweet joy // Wail (lonely love) (RIM 2028) Unplayed stock vg++ £20

Awesome ballad-with-a-beat record, and still overlooked. Never fails to empress my rap friends.


Eugene Pitt & the Jive Five – Come down in time // Love is pain (Avco embassy 4568 issue) unplayed stock m- £20

Pristine copy of this slept-on record from one of Philly’s finest team. Intricate song-writing, and a song bouncing from sweet soul to Northern soul. Excellent record overall. NB: rarer issue with the matching label sleeve.


The Cause –Hard times in the city // Promises (ASG 1006) Unplayed stock vg++ £20

The b-side wins again. An ok conscious funk number backed by a breath-taking  sweet soul song with outstanding vocal harmonies and eerie production courtesy of JB’s white funky drummer of choice, Beau Dollar.


Freedom Express –Stolen pleasures // pt 2 (Spirit 778) unplayed stock vg++ £10

Probably one of the best and most under-rated stepper around. Adult music when it’s time to cheat after a couple of red wine glasses.



Thank you for your interest,
