FUNKY AL’s PIMPED UP FUNKY NORTHERN SUPERFREAK 70’S HO’ TRAIN – CAN YOU DIG IT, Y’ALL? AAAAOOOWWW! (take 2)

Right, enough of that guff * removes pimp suit and 40” afro wig* :  70’s tackle here, from cheapies to the not so; mid tempo floaters, barnstorming Northern shufflers and crossover finger snappers in between. All are in Ex condition unless otherwise stated. The YouTube clips are there to remind you how good a record is, or to introduce you to something new and splendid, but they are not my records: the ones I’m selling are pictured. Please do read the bumph at the end if you want to buy something. Ta 😊

 

5 Wagers – Just Looking For My Love – Tiara £15  that gorgeous, mid tempo early 70’s Chicago-type sound that’s so in vogue right now.

The Bean Brothers – Spinning Around – DI £25 mid tempo crossover

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IgZIBGSlWc

 

Centre Stage – Hey Lady / Someday Someway – Dispo £20   two sides of swinging, early 70’s Northern/ Crossover dancey goodness, on the local label before RCA

Contributors of Soul – Look What You Done For Me / I Don’t Know – New Miss £15 ‘Look’ is punchy, *ahem* ‘funky  Northern’ (!); flip is gritty, southern sounding, mid tempo. £pound for £pound, one of the best value cheapies going

*** SOLD ***Crossfire – Take Me Back – Virtue £20 classic Mecca sound, Philly mid/up tempo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPfOTJdxfyY

 

*** SOLD *** The Decisions - Do You Love Me / Stop Playing Around- Sussex vg+/++ £60  moody, mid tempo crossover dancer, with lighter, jaunty dancer on flip. Seldom seen or heard  disc that’s floating around for some bonkers prices online (£150 – WTF?)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8o6Y1AA4X4

Diane Jenkins – Tow Away Zone – Creative Funk £35 brilliant Mecca groover, great low down feel to it. The label looks cracking, too!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogTXG4sTNA0

 

The Entertains - Love Will Turn It Around / Why – Steel Town £20 fast, feel good strings 'n horns dancer with a cool, mid tempo grooover on the flip

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxX6Vsm5uLA

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sf0h7wbvvTw

 

James Gadson - Got To Find My Baby / Let The Feeling Belong – Cream £15 another, top drawer cheapie. Mid-tempo dancer on one side; a growling, mean, down tempo on t’other

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJXmkL-HnOY

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4WBNb6fQnc

 

Jeff Perry – Call On Me – Epic demo £75 oh man, just a gorgeous, sweet soulful dancer from this prolific Brother. Got this in a swap for Guitar Ray on Shagg – not a great deal in today’s money but this was going for 3 figures at the time, and Soul Bowl had so many GR’s John Anderson was using them as stiffeners for Barbara Mills records…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqYZ5rNns2Y

 

***SOLD*** Jesse James – If You Want A Love Affair – 20th Century (demo) £65  timeless, classic brilliance. Love the intro: Jesse’s in full chat-up with the lady, tryin’ to get his jiggy on, and she stops him in mid flight to ask his sign - WHAT? WHAT’S MY SIIIIIIIGN? J

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIkx9IzIsl0

 

The Masqueraders – Desire – Bang £15 ok, it’s 1980 but we’re not gonna split hairs where these boys are concerned, right? The door’s always open to one of the most loved vocal groups on the scene. This is a vibrant and just downright happy belter of a track, guaranteed to get every bugger bouncing about the floor with daft grins on their phizzogs. Did with me, anyway, and I was the DJ! J

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWHzzDGSFQ4

 

Mike & Bill – Where Do I Stand / Wrong Family  – York £25 fine dancer on one side, a gutbucket deep soul wailer on the other - the ideal combo!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucm_1G2KXkg

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FK8IEsLIGE

 

Rozetta Johnson – Mine Was Real / A Woman’s Way – Clintone £30 vg++ mean, moody dancer with a sassy deep ballad, both penned by Lillian Dees – Sam’s ol’ Lady

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZ-mhSDEOIE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEYwGF4LyqQ

 

Sidney Joe Qualls – Run To Me – Dakar (demo) £45 super mellow mid tempo classic

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBpwaxrhsJA

 

Starfire - Make The Most Of It / Out Of The Ghetto - Dynamic Artists £220 vg++ both sides have surface scratches and scuffs but play crisp and clear. I totally forgot I had this gem until seeing a fella had sold a vg+ for $260 on FB only last Sunday. ‘Make’ is a classy mid tempo groover, while 'Ghetto’ is a straight up funk chugger, worth buying if only for the truly magnificent lyric "Not even nobody want a job, people walkin' round all day looking like slobs" 😂 It's a real tuff find on 45, most versions in circulation being on the 'Get Off With Us' LP (which is hard to find, too). The 45 is such a tuff find it ain't even listed in JM's bible!

*** SOLD *** The Visitors – Little Golden Band – Dispo (demo) £125 blimey, what’s the story here, then? Found this in my Shi…er…’Unloved ‘ Box, didn’t ring any bells so played it and still didn’t recognise it. Did some research and blow me down if it’s not being priced at £250 - what the hell! This copy is not in great condition: surface scratches and scuffs, not particularly audible but it plays fine. Certainly tip top for DJ’ing with, and it’ll work in your house too!

Willie Darrington – Never Should Have Walked Away – RAV £180 the real, original 1st issue on NR 8198. Time-served classic mid tempo dancer from the top drawer. Listed this a few months back for £150 and was promptly messaged by an old pal who warned me it was £250 all day long, so I bumped the price up and hey presto – no bugger batted an eyelid! No good to me at that price, so it’s been priced to sell. Apologies for the crap clip, but it’s the only one I could find of the 1st issue:
