Modern & Crossover Soul 45’s


Innersection - Let me love yuh / I’m in debt to you - Group 5 / EX / £700 (Clean white demo of this evergreen modern soul double header. I’ve heard this countless times over the last 20 years but never seem to get tired of it.)




Frankie Zhivago Young - Somebody stole my love - Ultra / VG+ / £400 (Classic! A truly unique masterpiece. Has Part 2 label on both sides but plays what it should, that is vocal backed with instrumental. Vinyl looks clean but run out groove plays with light crackles.)



21st Generations - Hey James / I need love - Tri-City / EX / £350 (Lovely white demo of this killer Michigan double header. Albert Jones and Reginald Garland written. Ultra-City issues might be rarer but this is the first press.)




Hyla Parker - Joe - Soundscape / EX / £225 (First, extended version before Cheri. Superb feel good two step. Label has light bubbling around the center. Rare!!)



Heywood Cash - You’re messing up a good thing - Epic / EX / £150 (Slick dance version of the John Edwards/Bobby Womack song. Rare issue only major label release.)



Snoopy Dean - I can’t control this feeling / Be good to me - Blue Candle / EX / £125 (Classic Miami double header, one side crossover one side Miami soulful funk. Label has a Plug Side rubber stamp. Vinyl has a short edge warp stopping before the grooves and are not affecting play.)




Hiram & Direct - Turn it around / Love flight - Hirome / EX / £100 (One of my all-time faves, such a beautiful two stepper out of the Tantus, Detroit studio. Flip is good too, a modern dancer that was later the b-side on the Direct Pressure “Let me love you” 45. Hiram & Direct used to be super rare until copies turned up, the Direct Pressure cheap and could be bought from Craig Moerer and others who had big stock. Now that one is rare and quite expensive, ah the joys of record collecting. “Love flight” side has small stain from removed sticker.)




Charlie Mitchell - After hours - Janus / EX / £90 (Killer version of the JR Bailey song. White demo vinyl copy, label has underlined title plus very faint rubber stamp.)



Margie Joseph - I can’t move no mountains - Atlantic / EX / £75 (Vinyl issue copy, easily best version of this well covered track!)



Carolyn Crawford - If you move, you lose - PIR / EX / £70 (Rare issue only dancer which comes highly recommended. Untypical sound for this label. Nice clean copy complete with company sleeve.)



Sweet Charles - Hang out & hustle - People / EX / £45 (Promo copy of this awesome funky soul dancer.)



Variations - I can show you - Salsoul / VG+ / £35 (Killer mellow groove! And on of the hardest 45’s on the label, tucked away on b-side of issue copies. Vinyl has a couple of light marks, not affecting play.)



Billy Perry - Sitting on the banks of the river - Ronn / EX / £20 (PG50 rating/grown man southern soul dancer. Clean white demo complete company sleeve.)



Joe Tex - All the heaven a man really needs - Dial / EX / £12 (Popular crossover dancer, 1972 release that is much slicker than his earlier stuff)



Love Committee - Darling come back home - TSOP / EX / £5 (Killer version of the Eddie Kendricks song. Promo copy.)



Major Lance - Come what may - Columbia / EX / £8 (Killer version of the True Image/Clarence Mann modern soul dancer. A highly recommended cheapie!)



George Duke - I want you for myself - Epic / EX / £5 (Classic dancer, deep grinding disco/jazz funk.)

Sam Fletcher - I’d think it over - Tollie / EX / £400 (Classic! Clean white demo original with circled MR in the runout groove.)




Holly Maxwell - Only when you’re lonely / Let him go for himself - Constellation / EX / £140 (Super clean stock copy of this solid midtempo almost beat ballad dancer, flip is nice too. Thin font label variation.)




Capitols - Don’t say maybe baby - Karen / EX / £110 (Storming Detroit NS classic, the string break is fantastic. White demo, no lines design. Super clean copy complete with company sleeve.)



E.J. & the Echoes - Put a smile on your face - Diamond Jim / EX / £100 (Nice clean copy of this classic Detroit midtempo dancer, ultra soulful stuff!)

Ballad/Deep/Sweet/Group Harmony 45’s


Desciples of Soul - Peek-a-boo - G.V. / EX / £550 (Best version of this amazing Chris Hills/Mad Cliff penned sweet soul ballad, funky flip. Nice clean copy, red label design. Huge demand, one sold for over $800 recently.)




Unlimited Four - True love is hard to find - Chanson / EX / £330 (Superb lowrider with hip hop drums and dramatic vocals. Lead singer Joe Butts ate nails for supper. Nice clean copy!)



George Wilson – Come back to me / Everything will be fine – Stang / EX / £300 (One of the best and rarest on the label – two sweet soul cuts of the highest quality. Two rubber stamp stars and a little ink smudge on label)




Berganees - ‘Cause I love you / Time is gonna change - Artist-Ville / EX / £175 (Very nice copy of this immense Chicago sweet soul double header. Amazing stuff!)




Spice - Reach out / I need a man - Cle An Thair / EX / £125 (Amazing slow and soulful remake of the H-D-H classic. Flip is funky soul with a sister funk attitude.)




Doc & Sal - Laughing to keep from crying / Can’t get you offa my mind - Dynamic  EX / £125 (Rare and nice piece of Tex Mex soul. Small writing on label.)




Dorando - Didn’t I - Music City / VG+ / £75 (One of the biggest masterpieces in the world of rare soul. And a must have in every record collection. White label small red lettering label variation. Record has a couple of scuffs which does not affect play. Ken Wins!!)



Bobby Oroza - This love - Stylart / EX / £35 (Lowrider tailor made with banging hip hop drums and reverb on vocals. White label DJ copy, first press.)



Natural Experience - Hide and seek Pt. 1 / Pt. 2- Sound Waves / EX / £25 (Classic 1977 sweet soul, here on the rarer label but with the pale blue label red lettering variation. Small sticker on label, which has a tiny tear underneath.)



11th Commandment - Have you had any heartaches lately? / Why are you so hard to forget? - Chess / EX / £20 (Beautiful Philly sweet soul backed with a lovely feelgood dancer. Small sticker on label.)




Brenda Lee Eager - There ain’t no way - Mercury / VG / £15 (Intense Ed Townsend written slowie that comes highly recommended. Record has plenty of marks but plays ok, x on label.)



Soul/Disco 12’s


Sass - Much too much - 25 West / EX / £175 (Serious serious modern soul dancer with incredible deep production and vocals.)



Soul Albums


Clydene Jackson - Fresh - Crossover / EX/EX / £275 (Fresh copy of this album containing the stunning jazzy dancer “I need your love”. A true pearl, and an album only cut.)



Directions & Directions Band – Directions – Brunswick / EX/EX / £200 (1975 Brunswick rarity heaving with great album only cuts. With “I want to be your special man”, “She’ll never say it”, “We need love” being the personal standouts. Cover is clean and it comes with original inner sleeve. Only flaw is a scuff on the a-side vinyl which is not affecting play.)




Tony Fox - The beginning - Blaster / EX/NM / £175 (Classic rare soul title, of course with the dancers “Love, let love and be loved” and “I wanna get next to you”. Cover still in shrink.)




Starvue - Upward bound - VG+/EX / £175 (Classic 1980 Chicago release filled with goodies. “Put the bs aside”, “You and me”, “Love affair” and the classic “Body fusion”. Vinyl is clean apart from a cluster of very light marks on the last two tracks on the A-side, plays through nicely but not perfect.)






J.J. Barnes - Born again - Perception / EX/EX £60 (Superb 1973 release by this soul hall of famer. His take on “Wishful thinking” is my fave and one I used on dancefloor gigs to great response a couple of times. But the whole LP is solid listening and only two tracks had a 45 release.)








New Horizon - Something new - Columbia / EX/EX / £18 (1983 release with the great two stepper “I can’t tell you” and the soulful boogie track “Reaching for new horizons”.)




Jerry Butler - Offering the spice of life - Mercury / EX/EX / £18 (1972 the Ice Man double album, with a couple of highlights being “Stop steppin’ on my dreams”, “Baby I‘m a want you” and “One night affair”.)
