Lee Fields “We Fought For Survival” (Festival) VG- £500
Hard-as-nails funk behemoth. Arguably his rarest and best. Sounds like Showbiz and Lord Finesse if they had been making records in 1969. (Plays strong / wol / light ringwear / slight “swoosh” on intro, check clip)
We Fought For Survival

 

Shirley Johnson “Too Big To Cry / Inst.” (LaShawn) strong VG £900
Rarity alert! Huge northern spin, and a recent cover up for the top few DJs on the all-nighter circuit. A copy sold on one of Manship’s auctions for over £1300 a while back in similar condition. (Dish not affecting play / some ringwear on instrumental side)
Too Big To Cry
 
Carl Hall "Mean It Baby / You Don't Know Nothing About Love" (Loma) G+/VG £25
Classic northern with deep flip. (Northern side is compromised by large scratch, plays surprisingly well though, please check clip before ordering. Ballad side is is strong VG to VG+ and labels are clean.)
Mean It Baby
You Don't Know

Great Pride “She’s A Lady” (MGM white demo) VG++ £40
Opens with a drum break and goes into awesome downtempo reverbed-out funky soul with hip-hop appeal. Not terribly easy to find. (Nice clean copy, mono/stereo / two tiny, discreet red spots on mono side)
She's A Lady
 

Lawrence Carroll’s Peoples Band “One Hundred Years From Now” (Raina) VG+ £75
Moody instrumental funk with flavour.
One Hundred Years From Now
 

Natural Love “Goodbye My Love” (RSP) VG++ £25
Late 70s-sounding harmony ballad. (Looks clean but a slightly noisy pressing)
Goodbye My Love
 
The Book Of Life “I Don’t Know You / Love Will Rise” (Sonstar) VG £25
Lovely modern dancer from Michael Orr. Plays well, clean labels. (Sounds good overall with click just before music starts, ballad flip is more like VG-)
I Don't Know You
Love Will Rise

 
Bardo Martinez “Bad Education / Inst.” (Timmion) M- / M- £6
Possibly the best new release of the year to date – dancefloor fire with a message that comes highly recommended. (With picture sleeve and obi strip) 
Bad Education
 
Mugo “Organize / Space Travel” (United World) solid VG £40
Powerful ‘70s breakbeat funk from DC. (Very small warp not affecting play)
Organize
Space Travel
