Northern & Crossover 45’s

 

Terrells - Don't believe - Revolution / VG /  £350 (Super rare and super good sweet soul. Records has quite a lot of marks but nothing really major or deep. It's visually VG but plays really well. You can hear the actual copy for sale on the below link. Flipside is in lesser condition.)

 

Rama D. Dyushambee - What’s your game / Git off - Youtopia / EX / £300 (Ultra rare vocal jazz/soul 45 with a spiritual feel. Flip is lovely instrumental spiritual jazz cut. Vinyl is clean on that side but sound quality is not great. Youtube clips shows the actual copy for sale.)

 

Rhythm Machine - Freakish love / Whatcha gonna do - Rodan / EX / £250 (Killer double header out of Detroit, funky soul backed with a quirky midtempo crossover type of soul slowie. Very seldom seen in this clean condition.)

 

Bettye Swann - When the game is played on you - Atlantic / EX / £200 (Lovely Philly soul dancer now popular. Very hard to find on US stock copy like this one, usually seen on Jamaican press. Flipside has two stickers, comes in company sleeve.)

 

Neil Reed - Not as beautiful as you - Music Now / EX / £125 (Indemand Detroit crossover double header.)

 

Cleveland Martin and the Soul Sets - I don’t want to slip away - Single B / EX / £90 (Killer group slowie.)

 

Phillip Mitchell - I’m gonna build California from all over the world / The world needs more people like you - Shout / EX / £75 (Essential double header and quite a hard one to find on us press. Promo copy.)

 

Margie Joseph - Nobody / What you gonna do - Volt / VG+ / £65 (Essential double header for the crossover soul fan. I especially like the Willie Tee penned “Nobody” which is a superb allnighter sound. Vinyl has a few light marks but plays well.)

 

Moments of Truth - I’ll step aside - TOI / EX / £60 (Very clean copy of this high quality group harmony 45.)

 

Shades of Blu - Bella mi / Waiting for the last goodbye - A&M / EX / £50 (Great version of the Maxine Brown track. Rare one only found on issue copies. Flipside is a version of the Sandra Richardson track that I also think Ebonys did.)

 

Spanky Wilson - You / Love land - Mothers / VG / £50 (Classic sister funk backed with a beautiful slowie which is not the same song as the one with the same title off her album. Funk side plays well, ballad side with some light background noise in places.)

 

Barbara Lewis - I remember the feeling - Atlantic / EX / £35 (Superb northern classic! Red white demo copy complete with company sleeve.)

 

Johnny & the Soul Explosions - Boys and girls together - Josie / EX / £20 (Highly recommended and uplifting the Esquires type of sound. Vinyl white demo copy with same song on the flip.)

 

Betty Lavette - You’ll wake up wiser - Atco / EX / £15 (Very clean copy of this fantastic slab of crossover soul. Easily the best version.)

 

Barbara Lynn - This is the thanks I get - Atlantic / VG / £15 (Vinyl copy of this classic northern/crossover dancer. Record has light marks but plays well.)

 

Smoked Sugar - Keeping up my front (bumpity bump) - 20th Century / EX / £12 (Slowie with magic qualities, doesn’t get better than this. Vinyl demo copy.)

 

Bobby Bland - These hands (small but mighty) - Duke / VG+ / £10 (Pink demo copy. Vinyl has a little cloudy look but plays well.)

Roger Billaber / Vi Richardson - Be with me / I can’t believe - R.S.G. / VG+ / £125 (Super obscure 45 with two good ballads. California release by the looks of the label. There’s a scratch making clicks on the end of the Roger Billaber side, it’s the actual copy for sale on the youtube link below.)

 

Ruthie - Just for love / Let’s try love again - Guiding Star / EX / £100 (Rare modern soul and a great version of the Brief Encounter LP only track. The flip is good too.)

Soul & Funk Albums

 

Freddie Terrell’s Soul Expedition - Lefevre / VG/VG / £700 (1972 holy grail type funk and soul album. The standout for me is the deep and amazing midtempo crossover soul track “We gonna make it”. “I’ll be standing” is another nice crossover soul type of cut but the rest of the album is about funk - “Itching”, “Get down with it” and more. Both vinyl and cover is fairly strong VG. Most part of the album plays clean but there some slight background noise in places. Cover has some edge wear and small writing on front cover.)

 

Carrie Cleveland - Looking up - Cleve/Den / EX/NM / £350 (As new copy of this soul indemander. Opened but cover still in shrink.)

Lalomie Washburn - Could it be - Temati / EX/EX / £100 (Rare 1982 release out of California with the absolute sublime “Could it be” as well as the disco cuts “I really need your lovin” and “Look toward the sky”. Lovely copy with cover still in shrink.)

 

Lee Edwards - Shades of love - Seawind / EX/VG / £95 (Charming lo-fi modern soul album. Cover has light general wear, still looks neat but the main issue is that the whole upper seam has been taped.)

 

Don Blackman - s/t - Arista GRP / EX/EX / £70 (Classic! Tiny cut corner, cover still in shrink.)

Archie Bell & the Drells - Tighten up - Atlantic / EX/EX / £30 (Superb album with music from Archie Bell and TSU Toronadoes. Standouts to me are “When you left heartaches began” and a “A thousand wonder”. The classic title track still holds a charm as well. Blue/green label stereo press.)

 

Soul Explosion Band - Out of many one people - Soul Ex / EX/EX / £30 (Toronto, Canada album which includes the lovely slowie “Blue lady” which holds a solid low rider type of sound. )

 

Wilma Reading - Take a closer look at - Pye / EX/EX / £25 (UK album with her nice version of “Keep the faith”.)

 

Touch - Energizer - Brunswick / EX/EX / £15 (Highly recommended album with a mix of early disco and modern soul. “Energizer”, “Me and you” and the personal standout, a breezy instrumental feelgood version of “Love hangover”.)

 

Independent Movement - Slippin’ away - Polydor / EX/EX / £15 (With the superb full length version of the title track.)
