Modern Soul 45’s – Superior Movement issue only “Come fly with me”, Lé Gamby “Esmerelda”, Energettics “You make me nothing” (also holds a real nice group harmony flip), Executive Force’s rarest 45 “Wat’s your fantasy”, Mister “I wanna thank you”, Pretenders “I call it love”, Gil Scott-Heron UK only 45 “When you are who you are” plus a couple of major label issue only rarities from Bobby King and Ron Preyer.

Crossover Soul 45’s – mostly classics here. Such George Jackson “I don’t have the time to love you”, Virgil Henry “You ain’t sayin’ nothin’ new”, Phillip Mitchell “Little things” + “I’m gonna build California from all over the world” (US orig), Eldridge Holmes “Lovely woman” and the Ray Lewis D’ar double header.

Northern Soul & Funk 45’s – Deep funk from Johnny Morrisette (I’m hungry”), Kim Tamango and D.J. Band. NS classics from Butlers, Dells, Joann Garrett and Ann Sexton plus two major Detroit rarities in Luther Ingram on Hib (pristine with demo!) and Sharon McCann – Got to find another guy.

There’s also a short but sweet 2 step section and one for rarer/out of print/indemand re-issue and recently released 45’s + a small 12 inch section.

Then we have the albums, quite a strong lineup here! Carol Anderson on Coup (with “I’m a sad girl” + this LP only in “I found love”), California Playboys, Loveship (w/ “Absence” and “Love so new”). Clydene Jackson with “I need your love”, Bobby Hutton with “Lend a hand”. Karin Jones on Handshake, Jessie Butler with the killer LP only “Let my love being out the woman in you”. And more more more!

For paypal payments please make sure both currency fields are GBP, I don’t want to receive payments in SEK nor in USD. And for orders over £150 I need payment as gift or add 4% to cover fees.

Best Regards, Karl
