K-Mart Records October 2015 Sales List 45's/LP/12"

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to the October 2015 sales list!

Nice and varied selection this time around. A strong modern soul selection with alot of musically very strong mid priced 45’s plus a few rarities such as the Back Bay Crew EP, Pat Stallworth, Contreras/Sokolov/Milgrom’s Budweister/Starstream release “You make it harder”, June Evans x2 and more. There’s a bunch of seldom seen crossover discs such as Experience Unlimited on Gaynote, You & I on Cordak, Friday, Saturday & Sunday on it’s hardest format – Stax distributed issue copy. There’s a Ronnie McCain on Triode, Freddie Terrell “You had it made”, Soul Brothers Six, Shirelles on Blue Rock and many more. For lovers of slow soul 45’s we have a section dedicated to that with the whole price range represented. From a clean copy of Question’s ultra rarity on Gold And Soul Productions to a clean copy of George Kerr’s best moment in “Sunday”.

There’s a very cool section of rare European, mostly picture sleeved, releases on northern soul and 60’s soul classics. If you want more of that check my Discogs shop, link further down. Nearly all in stunning shape too.

Not many albums and 12 inchers this time around but all great ones such as Chapparalls 1978 Atlanta, GA rarity, Lanier “25 hours”, Willie Bobo’s version of “Always there”, a few cheapies with Johnny Bristol and Thelma Jones plus a bunch of Blaxploitation albums.

PM to reserve!

Also don’t forget to follow my Discogs shop where I add new stock every week. If you order from me directly rather than from there I can pass on the saved fees and knock off 10% off the listed prices.


Info about payment, grading, shipping costs etc after the listings. I require paypal payments over £150 as gift (or add 4% to the total) to cover paypal fees.

Best Regards, Karl

Experience Unlimited – You got to tell me / It’s alright – Gaynote / EX / £400 (Superb and powerful crossover slowie out of LA. Reminds me of the top tunes off the Optimistics and New Sounds albums on Turbo. Flip is a decent funk track. Vinyl is clean but label has been exposed to H20 and has some tearing. It’s not that bad overall, see youtube links below for how it looks.)

Alphonso Hamilton – I’ll let you go for free – Gate-Way / G+ / £125 (Well rare Flint, Michigan funk. Vocal and instrumental version. Record is well worn and label has ring wear.

Touch of Class – Love me baby – Renfro / EX / £80 (The female group version of this feel good crossover dancer. Comes highly recommended!)

Attractions – Think back / You don’t know boy? – June Bug / EX / £200 (Chicago rarity featuring two lovely sides. Northern dancer backed with a sublime killer version of the Mandells song. Vinyl is clean but has a warp that might require some extra needle pressure on some players to play through properly. Worked fine on both my Technics 1210’s and Linn LP12.)



Smoke Sugar Company – The girl I can’t forget – Teri De / EX / £100 (Absolutely lovely group soul, a true pearl. Wave reflection label design, been told this also came out with the plain blue Teri De design but is yet to verify that.)


Philly Devotions – I’ll never color you a rainbow / Yeah, yeah, girl – Bry-Wek / EX / £35 (Likely their rarest 45 featuring to epic sweet soul ballads.)



End Results – Reminiscing – Motion City / EX / £25 (Killer slowie. One label side has small writing, flipside has DJ stamp.)
