Stanley Mitchell - Get It Baby / Quit Twisting My Arm - Dynamo

Stanley Mitchell

Get It Baby / Quit Twisting My Arm

Dynamo: d-111 (45s)

Upon spying that scan.. I know old-school Catacombs, Mecca, Wigan Casino pupils will be goose-pimpling up as this vision catapults then back to their NS Wonder Years!

An all time GREAT... in by far it's rarest format, the sight of which will spark memories of how this instrumental bonded you to a lifetime of Northern Soul.. 
after all it is one of the most memorable tunes EVER introduced to us young sponges eager for new sounds to soak up every week.."Get It Baby" is Northern Soul at it's most-memorable....

Mike Terry, Richard Popcorn Wylie & Tony Hester all had a hand in crafting the two sides of Detroit masterpiece...

Which brings me to the flipside which has undeservedly lived in the shadows of "Get It Baby" even though over the decades some more enterprising DJ's have played "Quit Twisting My Arm" in preference to an oldie, no matter how great that oldie may be..

So how damn refreshing it was to be present when "Jumpin' Joan" played it within a stirring set of uncompromising NS thumpers at "GRUMPY SOUL" an event that everyone needs to attend if you wanna relive what old-school Catacombs, Mecca, Wigan Casino pupils experienced... 

a double goose-pimpling awaits the winner and those who make the worthwhile visit to "Grumpy" next time

Sam Dees - Lonely For You Baby / I Need You Baby - SSS International

Sam Dees

Lonely For You Baby / I Need You Baby

Trinikas - Black Is Beautiful / Remember Me - Pearce

Trinikas

Black Is Beautiful / Remember Me

Pearce: 5828 (45s)

RARE Oklahoma City Sister Soul smashing out two vital dance genres in one 45 (their last 45) as a tragic car crash robbed the Oklahoma/K.C. area of a most prodigious Soul Sister at the tender age of 16..

Kansas City's professor of FUNK Louis Chachere mentors Debbie Sheffield and team through two killer dancefloor experiences.. noting the equally elusive Centrury Record first take, does NOT carry the fantastic "Remember Me On the Flipside" 

Check out these two dynamic dancers, showcasing a young girl with buckets of attitude and zeal, two sessions that capture the freedom of youth; as Debbie hits home her message loud and clear; leaving you in no doubt the Trinikas were a very special outfit that would have become a huge act to reckon with.

Slow start "Black Is Beautiful" literally explodes into action..after the lead has spoke her sermon on how beautiful "black" is.. Flip it over for an ironically entitled "Remember Me" a haunting Funky edged mid-tempo shrouded in pain. The voice playing out the torture of love..

Find to better Soul girl-group tunes on one disc if you can, listen to this gathering spill their hearts onto the floor..

Proper Soul dance and a real-deal rarity
 

Condition Report

Two clean labels, to do check out the faded writing top left on the A-side, hardly visible but there. Flipside label is unblemished. Vinyl reveals only a few delicate hairlines, angled and re-angled under strong light, none affecting play, plays Mint minus (listen) and visually so close to Mint minus

Wendy Rene - After Laughter Comes Tears / She's Moving Away - Stax

Wendy Rene

After Laughter Comes Tears / She's Moving Away

Stax: 154 (45s)

What a loss to Soul Music when Mary Frierson (Wendy Rene) decided to leave Stax and devote herself to her Church Choir. A unique voice that with her brother Johnny released two extremely rare 45 on Volt with the 4 member group The Drapels. Then 3 solo 45s for Stax only one having any impact with "Bar-B-Q" becoming a popular club play, both sides of the Atlantic.

"After The Laughter" lay in obscurity for decades, it wasn't until those who dug deep to find "lost" greats, to integrate into their own new productions, that the standout talent of Wendy Rene became know across the workd. Notably more recently this Brother & Sister Frierson composition has been part of songs by Sweet Tea, Alborosie etc. Even film producers and advertising agents began using Wendy Rene's work to promote their work..

Thus "After Laughter Comes Tears" has become an highly sought-after 45 to own. Spawning a album release of all of Wendy's work as a solo artist and within the group The Drapels. Over 40 years after she left the home of Stax Wendy was at last receiving recognition..

Today is a window for ownership of her most-wanted 45, that has become very hard to acquire in acceptable condition.. 

PS do not overlook the equally fabulous Deep Soul flipside 



 

Condition Report

Two clean label, mild storage rub on the ring-crest of the label (see scan) both sides are free of writing, tears, stains or stckers. Vinyl reveals multiple light hairines, plays predominately clean, occasion background tick, not spoiling that impressive vocal in the least.

Michael Boothman Touch - Waiting For Your Love / What You Won't Do For Love - Touch

Michael Boothman Touch

Waiting For Your Love / What You Won't Do For Love

Touch : t 001 (45s)

1980 Barbados D.I.Y. session, crafting two equally impressive Modern Soul dancers featuring Charmaine Forde enriching the vocals..

I wasn't sure which side to lead with, as both sides are deliciously slick dancers you could play either and be sure of an enthusiastic response...

Let's start with the slick "Waiting for your Love" that avoided any commercial "disco" influences and getting the nod for the a-side Mr. Touch. The impressive vocals mix, using a girl answering chorus integrated into a intrecately jazzy dance track with Charmaine Forde taking her impressive voice up a notch at every opportunity; then an inspired bongo and guitar break soldering the session together for top-drawer Soulful dance... high quality for a private adventure by the producer.

It is gratifying to witness two strong sides on one 45, as Michael Touch could easily have split this into two different 45's.. instead of hiding a sold "club-dancer" on a flipside. The "What You Won't Do For Love " has more club cliches in the mix, but not too many causing "Disco" overload, just the occasional nod gives this recording enough integrity to make me stop and have to decide which side did I want to present first.

A two for the price of one very small run limited press from 37 years ago.. what's not to love

Condition Report

Mint minus vinyl, both sides unblemished. Both sky blue labels are clean (see scans) of this pristine copy.

  •  £173.00

Sorry, this auction has ended.

Gallahads - I've Got To Find A Way / Once I Had A Love - Beech Wood Promo

Gallahads

I've Got To Find A Way / Once I Had A Love

Beech Wood: 5000 (45s)

Rare Los Angeles vocal-group Northern Soul with the highly sought after Doo Wop trophy on the flipside..

It doesn't happen too often, but just like the coveted Jimmy and the Sundials 45, The Gallahads disc on Beech Wood gives up two extremely desirable recording from two of the world's most dedicated collectors scenes.

Top side is a thumping slab of Miles Grayson guided Northern Soul I last heard Phil Shields play at the Rugby Ben Hall allniter. Boy, when I heard this in the authentic surrounds of this Top venue I was transported back to my youth when spine-tingling turntable experiences were why we stayed up all night..

Milres Grayson constructs the very essence of the authoritative Northern Soul Sound. Ratting drums collide with brutal brass, then tight harmony vocals take the reins to ride you through "proper" Northern Soul. Soaring vocals, towering horns pierce the air, low blows of the trombone bring you to a tumultuous instrumental break, that epitomizes the Northern Soul sound at it's most motivating. Full marks Mr. Shields for always pushing the envelope, with choice examples of Rare Dance Soul..

Flip it over and the USA and European vocal-group/Low Rider fans will be slipping into a harmony-haven as Miles Grayson again mentors a masterpiece. Seamlessly skilled flood of vocals, carefully laced into a precise arrangement, which is lifted to yet another level, at the end by an ice-chilled falsetto taking to the air.. so soulful we all can understand why this side is also is held in such high regard

.

Condition Report

Two clean labels, no writing, tears, stickers to spoil the view, just very mild aging to the white background. Vinyl is very, not quite mint minus but only the finest few minuscule hairlines can be detected angled under string light. A fabulous example of one seldom seen promo.

Darrell Banks - Angel Baby (Don't You Leave Me) / Look In The Eyes Of A Fool - UK Atlantic

Darrell Banks

Angel Baby (Don't You Leave Me) / Look Into The Eyes Of A Fool

Atlantic : 584120 (45s)

A listing for those who are forever upgrading British Soul OCD collectors seeking perfection, this is as close as it gets..for a record that's been a Soul Club classic since it's UK release in 1967.

On the topside Gene Redd considers a Motown composition that Stevie Wonder laid onto his magnificent "Down To Earth" album, written by that fruitful duo Sylvia Moy & Henry Cosby, a great LP but one of Stevie's lesser successes. That was a great pick, such a great song and not obviously recognized as just another Motown cover version by the public. Gene Redd's the Revilot team and Darrell's seamlessly dynamic vocal craft a very special 60's dance Soul record...

So much so, we can all sing the lyrics almost off by heart. But what about that overlooked flipside that from the first note turns your head.. as the Darrell Banks voice takes to the air.. and the Revilot team conjure up so magic again..

THis side certainly has oodles of millage as a Northern Soul rerun.. the a-side is of course an underplayed NS anthem.. we love those neglected turntable drops that trigger euphoric recall... don't we..

PS Gene Redd of course a few years later went onto to become a legendary producer with his huge success as Kool & The Gang's mentor..

Condition Report

I never thought I'd ever encounter a copy in this impeccable condition, as it is a record that's too good to be just sitting filed away. Both labels are flawless (see scans), housed in the correct UK wavy-top Polydor (Atlantic) sleeve. Vinyl has full as-new gloss, two fine hairlines on side A, B side has a solitary hairline blemish. So close to MINT it hurts..

Home Of The Blues # 5 - September / October 1966 -

Home Of The Blues #5

# 5 - September / October 1966 / .

Home Of The Blues: 5 (MAG)

Arguably the most historical issue in the whole lifespan of Home Of The Blues & Blues & Soul as it documents Otis Reddings first British Tour in September 1966 when Ready, Steady Go TV show dedicated a whole program to him.

Editor John Abbey really had his finer on the pulse, you can see why he lifted this fanzine up into a worldwide no. 1 glossy music magazine for Soul music..

Today these Home Of The Blues fanzines, are like the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles to the Soul collectors who want to delve into the roots of the British love-affair with Soul.

This edition besides covering the most-important Soul artist tour to date, also reviews top-artists of the time: Solomon Burke, Al TNT Braggs, Bobby Bland, Major Lance & Otis Redding covering biography, discography, live performances, tour dates etc.

Black & White glossy artist photos of Otis Redding, Solomon Burke, Major Lance & Al TNT Braggs

#Reviews 1966 USA releases like The Commands - Hey It's Love, Troy Marrs - Rhythm Message etc. UK new release 45's makes super interesting reading with 45s by Spidells, Santells, Little Milton, Birdlegs & Pauline, Loretta Williams, Leon Haywood, Rex Garvin etc. receiving reviews from an enthusiastic editor..and so much more in this 32 page Soul report..

Yes, if you want to delve into the past and get the truth how Soul music captured the imagination of 1,000s of the British Youth.. Home Of The Blues is an essential read..

Besides that these publications are dog-rare and so hard to acquire in fine condition.

Condition Report

Hardly a blemish anywhere, certainly no tears, writing, stains or loose pages. This is as good as you could ever hope to find condition.

  •  £33.00

Ester Byrde - Touch Me - Take Me - Survival DEMO

Ester Byrde

Touch Me - Take Me / Tracks Of Love

Survival : SUR 1 (45s)

Rare 70's British Soul at it's utmost compelling...

Sultry Soulful Stepper of the sexiest kind, an alluring lead voice beckons; your attention is captured whilst Ester pulls you in, assisted by siren-esque ladies, holding her irresistible tones aloft with their floating choruses. 

Soul has never been so seductive, as the song slowly but surely intensifies until Ester takes over your consciousness. She purrs the "Touch Me - Take Me" so convincingly, arousal is just a moment away.. 

This British Soul at it's most exquisite, the immense Sister vocal is so beguiling, along with such a convincing arrangement; My mind was wafted off to bedroom and not just with Ester... I could not possibly have that girl choir left out....

Spectacular previously unplayed condition, I've now played it very carefully 5 times a row....for reasons I'm not willing to share..

The flip is a backing-track instrumental version, giving you the rare opportunity to ask the wife and some of her friends to sing it to sing it to you... 

There is another not so rare version, a remake in 1978 by Rita Wright on UK Jet, not nearly as good as this original...

Condition Report

Before the sound-file was lifted for this auction listing, this rare PROMO disc had never been played. MINT condition throughout, sparkling rich GOLD text... perfection, you could not hope for a more perfect example

  •  £161.00

    Thought the Trinikas may have fetched more, the Sam Dees is just mental full stop and it looks like it's going that way with the Drifter at the moment (was surprised to get £450 for mine) and I reckon it will hit £1k if not more...

    Not forgetting the Little Joe Hinton - my prediction on that £1500.

    However, for the silliest price - as it's an all time classic (and they seem to fetch the most money right now) - Eddie Holman 'I Surrender' WD - I'll say £500.

    Absolutely no way - I sold one for £400 two months back, £400 a fortnight back and my next one will be the same price...these people who put their prices up after an auction should just be ignored
