Mornin' all. Late 60’s/Early 70’s Northern/Crossover Dancers, and Sweet & Deep Soul Tunage for ya.

***All are in excellently Ex condition unless otherwise stated***

YouTube clips are added to treat your ears to something new, or to remind you how good they sound, but they’re not my records: the one’s I’m selling are pictured. Fire in!


Alex Brown – What Would You Do – Tangerine £15 £10 vg+ scuffs & surface scratches but this fine, slick dancer plays much better than it looks. A wee hint of ‘Turn Back the Hands Of Time’, you think? 

***SOLD*** Cam Cameron – They Say – Capri £200 every home should have this evergreen dancer. Not on the rarer gold label, but still a tuff find and a good £50 less than the *ahem* ‘book price’!

Charles Mintz – Since I Found You – Uplook £50 £45 Charlie here is the voice of The Delegates of Soul, and this is a similarly jolly groover that bounces along in fine style

Clydie King - ‘Bout Love - Lizard demo £25 £20 urgent, dramatic, strings ‘n horns dancer with sufficient oomph for Northern floors but slick enough for crossover appeal

Deniece Chandler & Lee Sain – Glorious Feeling / Hey Baby - Todllin’ Town £20 £18 gotta love that slick, sweet Chicago crossover groove

***SOLD*** Hoagy Lands – Do You Know What Life Is All About / Why Didn’t You Let Me Know – Spectrum £50 a top, top double sider, delightful Northern crossover dancers for the connoiseur

***SOLD*** James Dee & A Piece of The Action & The Primettes – Jealous Over Love – Enrica £100 I’m giving you ungrateful wretches a final chance to buy this awesome sweet killer, and at a more realistic price. It’s going back in the treasure chest if it doesn’t go, and quick…

Jimmy Braswell – This Time It’s Got To Be For Real / Time Waits For No Man – Jar Val £85 £80 another superb double sider, I’m sure ‘This Time’ finds more favour on the dance floors these days than when I tried it at Allanton in the late 80’s, as the crossover sound was in it’s infancy. ‘Time Waits’ is deep soul balladeering from the top drawer

Jimmy Dotson – To Be Your Lover – Aarodot £25 £20a happy, jaunty wee number that might not make your Top 10 but will surely put a smile on your face! 1f60a.png😊

Johnny Sayles – Somebody’s Been Changing My Sweet Baby’s Mind / You’re So Right For Me – Dakar demo £35 £30 the early 70’s Chicago sound that’s so in vogue. Can’t find a YT clip for ‘You’re So Right’ but it’s more of the same goodness

Joyce Jones – Help Me Make Up My Mind / I’m Just Sitting Here Thinking – Vee Eight £55 £50 fab funky dancer with a hint of Mr Big Stuff about it, while ‘Thinking’ is down home, Southern soul balladeering at it’s best. Two fine sides, on the rarer local label before Atco picked it up

 ***SOLD**Lee Charles – Standing on The Outside / If That Ain’t Loving You – Revue £20 both sides vg++ with light scuffs & surface scratches * which don’t affect play. ‘Standing’ is fine crossover goodness, ‘If That’ a good ol’ Northern stomper with a bit of ‘Mickey’s Monkey’ to my ears!

***SOLD*** The Mandells – How To Love A Woman – Trans World Sound £25 one-time soul pack staple and another every home should have, just lovely!

***SOLD*** Maurice Long – I Don’t Love You Anymore – Cyclone £35 Stafford tape swappers fave, super soulful mid tempo that stood the test of time

***SOLD*** Otis Leavill – Glad I Met You – Dakar £35 I’m listing this again, just because I can’t get my head around no one picking up on this joyous record. It’s Northern, it’s 70’s, it’s crossover – it’s that glorious Chicago sound once again, it’s happiness on vinyl!

***SOLD*** Sensational Little Doc – Looking For My Baby – Music Go Round £215 superb soulful crossover dancer that has held it’s popularity and value

The Drifters – The Struggler - Steeltown £25 £20 strange one this: real nice, mournful 60’s newies-type mid tempo that would have sounded quite at home at Stafford. Song starts off imploring us to have pity on life’s unfortunates as embodied by the ‘The Struggler’ character, before suddenly turning on the poor sod and slagging him off as the kind of wrong ‘un who’ll steal the gold teeth out your granny’s head then shit in her airing cupboard for good measure

***SOLD***The Persians – Here It Comes / I Don’t Know How To Fall Out Of Love – GWP £35 a sign of the times that I highlight the beautiful sweet soul ballad before the Northern dancer. ‘Don’t Know’ is ok, but ‘Here It Comes’ is just…just…

Top Shelf – No Second Thoughts / Give It Up – Lolo £45 oh yes indeedy, here’s our man Larry Saunders with a riot of uptempo Northern/Crossover dancefloor action; then flip it over for ‘Give It Up’, a gorgeous and very, very subtle sweet soul reworking of Jerry Butler’s ‘Giving Up On Love’ 

TSU Toronados – Only Inside – Ovide £60 £55 great God above, this is magnificent. So soulful it almost seemed too reverential for a dancehall, but it got played by the better DJ’s, to appreciative ears
