11)  Third generation — mother nature/Love is gonna rain down on me (Prison soul) Mint £7.50

2nd issue release from Numero taken from the original master tapes with original Label artwork    A pensioned high school art teacher with a strong social conscience, Ellis Haraka applied for an opening at Georgia Industrial Institute in 1974, a minimum-security prison camp in Alto, Georgia, to teach remedial reading and GED preparation. After selling the warden on converting the art room into a rehearsal space and rescuing gear from a defunct music program, Haraka watched Georgia Industrial's band form spontaneously. Inmates Roderick Willis, Linwood Moore, Michael Cody, Eugene Bostic, Willie "Shoeshop Slim" Zackery, Kenny Rewis, Eddie McCluskey, and Rufus Amis thus formed The Third Generation, rehearsing regularly with Haraka through 1977, who then painstakingly arranged for a field trip to Atlanta's Precision Studios. "Love Is Gonna Rain Down On Me" b/w "Mother Nature" was issued with the group's own PRISON SOUL banner, and over the next few years the group disbanded naturally, as members completed their jail time and rejoined civilian life.

A little known band out of Mattapan, Massachusetts put together by Joey Lites and Bernard Franklin formed a cursory quarted with a pair of Franklin’s siblings which would later be known as The Energetics after including Herbert “Pee Wee” Jackson, Calvin Shepard and Tony Borders to the line up. The Energettics “You Make Me Nothing” is a highly sought after on the 45 market as with their sister group The Energies “How Many Tears” 45. Both kiddie groups were managed by Donald Poole Sr with songs penned by William Ebison and saw releases on Cobra Records in 1974. In 1982 childhood neighbor and Electro producer, Arthur Baker who produced the Hip Hop classic Planet Rock for AfrikaBambaataa asked The Energettics to move to New York City with him and later became members of the group Planet Patrol which released the classic, “Play At Your Own Risk” released on Tommy Boy Records.

22)  Directory – Feel it in your bones/World & creation (Zodiac)2nd issue    Z-2873-2 Ex £5

Big Spring's aging teen sensation Jay Thomas formed Directory in 1972 with the simple philosophy: "We can make every song a dance song." Generally reworking the day's top hits into dance numbers, in 1975 with backing from the owner of a rough local biker club, Directory hit Lubbock's Harold Franklin Studio to craft two of their own. The result- a solemn but danceable, "World and Creation," and an up-beat hip-shaker, "Feel It In Your Bones,"- poured out of car radios, making Directory, for a moment, local stars.



23)  13th Amendment – Hard to be in love/ The Stretch (Slave) 2nd press A-10001 Ex £5

 "Musical Freedom Personified" is what a 1971 press kit called The 13th Amendment of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Billed as an entertainment attraction and as a vote-baiting rehabilitation project, the 13th Amendment's dashiki-clad stage show, with semi-improvised comedy skits between break-neck medleys, quickly attracted a following. A handful of originals took form, culminating in a December 1970 recording session at Baton Rouge's Deep South Studios. "Hard To Be In Love" b/w "The Stretch" was issued early in 1971 on the band's own Slave label. Later that year, the 13th Amendment signed with Queen Booking Corporation, which listed them alongside no less than Aretha Franklin and Sammy Davis Jr. Another manager joined up, and the pie finally split into pieces the band couldn't feed themselves on. To mitigate the ravages of the 16th Amendment, the 13th Amendment dissolved in mid-1972.
