PM to reserve!

Hello and welcome to the K-Mart Records April 2019 sales list!


Another long and strong list heaving with heavies, fantastic music in all sections. Some highlights listed below.


Modern Soul/2 step 45’s - classics by the likes of Clausel, Target, Gary Bartz, Freedom (“Sunshine”/”Can’t you see”) & Midnight “Keep on walking by”. More obscure but equally great ones like Cliff Holmes “I need ya’ baby”, Timmy Thomas “It’s what they can’t see”, Bobby Finch “Get a hold of yourself”. Two step from Epicenter, Annexus, Bob Poiter and Charles Blackman.


Crossover/funk/NS 45’s - Betty Moorer “Speed up”, Aretha Franklin “One step ahead” b/w “I can’t wait until I see my baby’s face”, Vibrettes (“Humpty dimp”, on rarer green label), Dee Irwin & Mamie Galore “I didn’t wanna do it, but I did” and cheaper NS classics by Ad Libs, Barbara Mills, Prince Philip and Gene Chandler x2.


The ballad 45 section is short but sweet including clean copies of Sly, Slick & Wicked’s Shaker rarity and Berganees Chicago double header. Two Fellows on Mutt and the overlooked but fantastic Patti Austin “A most unusual boy”.


12 inch section includes China Burton, Tommy McGee x2, Garfield Fleming and Ty Karim & George Griffin.


LP section holds a bunch of low to mid priced ones such as Solid Solution (filled with Detroit goodies), Strutt (with “Funky sign” and “Said you didn’t love me”), J.P. Rodgers Jr. “Good taste in love” and Buddy Miles Johnny Bristol produced “All the faces” album.


Finally a reminder that all payments £150 and above needs to be sent as gift, alternatively add 4% to cover the paypal fees. And that you select GBP in the second currency field (I don’t want to receive payments in USD nor SEK).


Best Regards, Karl
