Major Thomas – And you know’ it  / Wake up crying – Lion’s / EX / £250 (Nice and clean copy of this very rare boogie 45. Flip is a nice ballad.)

 

Buddy Ace – It’s all for you / I’ll love you (If you let me) – Tear Drop / EX / £200 (Late 70’s release by this pedigree artist very seldom offered for sale. Two excellent sides, modern dancer backed by a lovely slowie.)
