Please inquire to ruralconcourse@yahoo.com.



Father’s Children “Intellect / Linda” (Arrest) strong VG+/VG £150
This sophisticated ‘70s funk / modern release from DC has great lyrics, sounds strong in a club thanks to first-rate production, and doesn’t surface terribly often. The flip is a gorgeous sweet ballad (a few tics on that side hence VG grade, but still plays ok).
#2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/fatherschildren_linda.mp3

M.A.S.O. "Poon-Tang-Thump / Part 2" (Bandit) strong VG £125
Not many known copies of this unique breakbeat funk killer. Part 2 is the side, with a b-boy break leading into a penetrating eastern horn line & bass drop. Rare!!
Part 1http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/maso_pt1.mp3

Heem & the Music Monsters “Wake Up People / Piece Of The Rock” (Blood Leaf) strong VG+ £600
Thumping modern soul monster with hard funky drums. It also has a good flip, and one of the best label designs of all time. (The grade is VG+ because of some light surface marks, but both sides play great.)

Frosted “Sally Feel Good” (Charisma) VG++ £200
Obscure, soulful modern killer from Detroit. Doesn’t show up much.
Shirley Johnson “One Foot In Paradise / Have A Little Faith” (Fran-Son) VG-/G+ £75
This is an extremely rare Virginia release that hardly ever turns up. The hard funky soul side will be the main attraction for most, although “Have A Little Faith” is a fantastic deep ballad. Her rarest and arguably best record. “One Foot In Paradise” sounds ok, and although the wear is definitely more apparent on the ballad it’s still listenable. Some label wear.

Norfolk “You Are My Doll Baby” (Midnight Love) VG++ £60
Excellent ‘80s dancer, unsurprisingly from Norfolk VA. )Nice clean copy, with faintly stained label.)

Family Underground “Everybody Knows / For The Love Of You” (Power Funksion) VG+ £150
Recommended NOLA crossover.

Klas “Let’s Make Love Tonight / Break Your Promise” (Sahara) VG+ £60
Uplifting modern dancer with stepper flip. (Clean besides a couple of marks right at the start, and slight dish not affecting play.)


Crystal Pistol “Let’s Live Right Now / Never Give Up” (San Francisco I.N.S.) VG++ £125
Obscure funky soul with modern appeal - seems to be pretty much an unknown. Definitely one that upfront DJs and collectors should consider. (Virtually M- with faint dish not affecting play.)
The Six Degree South “Loving You Is Too Far Out” (Six Degree South) VG- £400
Everything on this record is incredibly powerful - a devastating example of early 70s funk. I’ve witnessed clubs get utterly crushed by this one. (Plays ok despite many small marks - surface noise is only really noticeable in the intro. Label has some ringwear and is signed by the band.)
Smokey 007 & The Exciters “We’ve Got The Same Kind Of Thing Going On” (Sonesta) M- £200
Hot version of the Syl Johnson song, perfect for the current soul scene. (Nice M- copy - ballad flip is VG+ to VG++)
Sugar “Someone To Be Mine” (Sugar) VG++ £400
One for the upfront DJs here - totally obscure funky soul from Mississippi. Seems to be virtually unknown, although it seems a couple of well known DJs recently started playing it.
