K-MART RECORDS MAY 2019 SALES LIST


Karlm

Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to the May 2019 list!
First out there’s a bit shorter modern soul 45 section this time around. But the list also end with a bunch of albums with lots of great modern soul titles in it so do look closely in both if that’s your preferred soul music. Highlights includes a couple of indie labels releases by Cloudburst, Backyard construction and Up from the Bottom and major label ones from Buddy Miles, Roy Ayers, Mighty Fire and more.

 

The northern soul/crossover section is filled to the brim, TSU Toronadoes “What good am I?” on the first local label, Soul Shakers on Loma, Pamoja’s fantastic double header and Limitations on Volt, cheap classics and many more.

 

We have a rather long selection of hard to find/out of print recent releases and reissues.

 

And there’s a also short but sweet Sweet/Deep/Group section before the aforementioned album section.

 

I have just uploaded a new mix to my mixcloud account, a four hour recording from a get together with local Stockholm collectors. Featuring early 1960’s northern soul to 90’s UK street soul, and everything inbetween.

 

Another boring reminder about paypal payments – please make sure to fill in GBP in the second currency field as I don’t want to receive payments in SEK, nor in any other currencies. Paypal sucks and has set the default to try to convert payments to sellers home currency. This is of course an excuse to use their crap currency rates. You might need to use the laptop version, rather than a mobile one to be able to even set the currency the seller receives your payment in. And as always I ask all orders over £150 to be sent as friends & family, or add 4% to cover the fees.

 

Rant over and on with the list. And if you find something just PM to order. And I will get back to you with availability, total including shipping and payment instructions.

 

And hope to see some of you on the forthcoming Stockholm Soul Weekender!

 

BR, Karl

 

 

Modern Soul & Two Step 45’s

 

Cloudburst – Speciality item – SMS Sound Machine / VG+/G / £300 (Achingly great, and rare Detroit modern soul 45. Dancer side is in the lower side of VG+, and plays ok but not perfect. The slow flip is in G condition due to a bunch of heavy marks. This side plays through but with plenty background noise in the first part of the song.)
