PEACE AND LOVE: WE Got The Power * RAFF, VG-, wol, 200.- Euro
Latin Soul banger from Mexico: a driving beat, a great percussion breakdown, sharp horn riffs and desperate vocals. This copy has numerous light scratches and plays with a little surface noise, but nothing to bad. Check the soundbyte.
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/peaceandlovewegotthe.mp3

ART FREEMAN: Slippin' Around With You * FAME, promo, VG+, 150.- Euro
A Northern Soul classic written by Spooner Oldham and Dan Penn. Totally catchy and driving 60's soul dancer, that never fails to get the dancers up. This copy has mild surface blemishes and plays very nice with occasional mild pops. Priced accordingly I believe.
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/artfreemanslipping.mp3

GINO DENTIE: Sunny Side Of Life * VALUNTINO, VG+, 150.- Euro
Great and rare 70's soul stepper, that never pops up on 7", only one copy ever went through ebay!
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/ginodentiesunnyside.mp3

MILL EVANS: When I'm Ready * TOU-SEA, promo, M-, 100.- Euro
Brilliant atmospheric Chicago dancer on a New Orleans label in dream like condition. An excellent rhythm track, produced by Bill Sheppard with nice bongos (which often take a record from great to fuc*ing brilliant) and vocals to die for.

soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/soulsearcherssaveasoul.mp3

GHETTO CHILDREN: Rat-A-Tat-Tat / I Just Gotta Find Somebody To Love Me * COLUMBIA, M-, wol, 75.- Euro
Like with so many majorlabel 70's releases, the winning side can only be found on the issues. The promo copies with the Mono/Stereo sides of the sweet groupsoul winner "I Just Gotta..." are fairlly easy to pick up, but the issues have the DJ-side on it. Here we have a straight and tricky 70's groove with falsetto lead vocals and a pretty insane drum break. This should be gold in the hands of the right DJ.

soundfile 2: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/ghettochildrenijustgotafind.mp3

LEE McDONALD: Gotta Get Home / Show Me * DEBBIE, M-, 75.- Euro
Outstanding Modern Soul stepper from 1979. Top side is on the rare LP by Lee McDonald a s well, but the 7" provides a different compared to the LP-take. Flip it over for a beautiful slow jam.

soundfile 2: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/messengersdarlingthis.mp3

HAYES & DHANIELS: Spend A Perfect Day * PHONOGRAPH, VG++, 50.- Euro
Chicago Modern Soul rarity with a nice mellow 2 step appeal and two great femme/male vocalists. Not easy to find, but they should have made a 12" out of this, soundquality is not the best due to the length of the song (almost 5 minutes) and it's pressed very narrow. The playing surface looks super clean, but it plays with light crackles in parts.
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/hayesdhanielsspendaperfe.mp3
WALES WALLACE: Somebody I Know * BRC, M-, 40.- Euro, on hold
Excellent chicago crossover soul dancer written and produced by Eugene Record.
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/waleswallacesomebody.mp3

TOMMY BRYANT: I Wanna Come Home To You Baby * T-NECK, promo, M-, 40.- Euro
Totally underrated Northern Soul dancer on the Isley Brother's owned label. Uptempo, soulful and produced to perfections by the Isleys. I've never seen an issue of this and I doubt, that they exist. Anyway, great uptempo 60's soul for the dancefloor.
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/tommybryantiwannacome.mp3

Promo copy of this essential funky soul double header with "Going To The Shack" being a personal favourtite. Way harder to find then most of Syl's other releases on the label and musically totally from the top shelf.

soundfile 2: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/syljohnsongoingto.mp3

RAW SPITT: That Ain't My Wife (That I See) / Songs To Sing * UNITED ARTISTS, promo, VG++, 50.- Euro
Legendary deep soul double header produced by Jerry Williams aka Swamp Dogg. The vocals are by Charles Whitehead and no matter what side you put the needle on, you get the deepest most emotional soulmusic ever made. This copy has a spot on the vinyl, that seems to be a pressing flaw, it doesn't sound, so you shouldn't be to worried about it. But you hear very light surface noise on the quite intro. Check the soundfiles, before ordering!

MARIE GLADNESS: Cops And Robbers * BRAND-X, VG/VG-, 40.- Euro
Nice R&B tingled popcorn soul on the rarer first label before Abner took over for national distribution. Flipside has some feelable marks and plays with pops.
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/mariegladnesscopsand.mp3

CHICK CARLTON: Preach Love / You Can't Keep A Woman From A Man * DEMO TEST PRESS, VG+, 40.- Euro
The Atco issued 45 from 1970 of this record has the title "Black On White, Brown On Tan" for "You Can't Keep A Woman From A Man". This does not appear to be a test pressing of the Atco release as the catalogue numbers are different. My beleive is, that this a private press. Both songs sound like the Atco released recordings allthough the timing seems to be slightly different. Pretty scarce record and musically great.

MARIO ALLISON Y SUS ESTRELLAS: Caliente / San Juan * DINSA; VG, wol, 35.- Euro
Rare Boogaloo 45, that got just released in Argentina and Peru. This is the issue copy from Peru and if you like your stuff with handclaps, a strong beat and some latin vibes, this is for you. Flipside is kind of easy latin, but nice in it's own way... check the sound!

THE CHANCES: One More Chance / It Takes More Then LOve Alone * BEA & BABY, VG++, 40.- Euro

FREDDIE HUBBARD feat JEANNIE TRACY: You're Gonna Lose Me * FANTASY, M-, 40.- Euro

soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/freddiehubbardyouregonna.mp3

DIXON: If This Is Love * AMG, VG, wol, 40.- Euro
The lead singer of the group is called Bernard L. Dixon. Previously he was member of the group Danderliers from Chicago. Bernard Dixon was co-composer and producer of this mighty fine 70's dancer. It also had a release on Communication records (better known for the rare Billy Byrd release), not sure if Communication or Ohio's AMG was first, but the AMG release seems to be way rarer.

soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/derekdamianwatchawanna.mp3

86 PROOF: You Ain't About La-De-Da * BLUES UNLIMITED, M-, 35.- Euro
Fantastic funky modern soul from the greater New Orleans area, recorded in 1984, but sounds like a 70's disc. Pretty much all the ingredients to set a Modern Soul room on fire on this platter and the price is right as well. Check the soundbyte!
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/86proofyouaintabout.mp3

Great atmospheric R&B popcorn dancer
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/lavernbakertinyttim.mp3

TYRONE ST. GERMAN: In A World So Cold / Don't Cop No Attitude * MORNING DOVE, M-, 30.- Euro
One of these records, that got played as a new release in the UK and ever since never really got pulled out of collections for a revival - it's time me thinks! And if not for the ultra soulful "In A World So Cold"-side, then try the more uptempo flip for a completely ignored 1977 goodie. Oakland / Cali soul from the top shelf and finding a cleaner copy than this beauty here, is impossible. Stone mint and soulful to the max!

THE FABULETTES: If It Wasn't For Girls * LOCAL, M-, "x" on label, 75.- Euro
Hard to put a price on this New Orleans rarity written and produced by Sax Kari. Only one copy ever went through ebay and it looks like not many know about the existence of this record. This is the same group, that recorded for Monument later. As far as I know, this is Annette Snell's first record. Musically this is a super charming teenage girly 60's dancer. Flipside offers a Mardi Gras party tune.
soundfile: https://hamburgcitysoul.com/upload/fabulettesifitwasntfor.mp3

JOHN WILLIAMS & THE TICK TOCKS: Do Me Like You Do Me / Blues Tears And Sorrows * TOU-SEA, promo, Mislabeled, the label for "Blues, Tears..." sticks on bothz sides, but it plays "Do Me..." on one side, 60.- Euro
Priced down for being mislabeled, otherwise stone mint. Great New Orleans soul on either side. The uptempo dancer "Do Me..." is a Northern Soul favourite and the ballad side "Blues, Tears And Sorrow" is Deep Soul at it's finest.

SAM DEES: Say Yeah / My World * POLYDOR, VG++, 25.- Euro
Sam Dees' one off for the major label label didn't sell at all and the label dropped him after only one release. They should have sticked to him as both sides are wonderful examples of deep and tortured real soul from the man.
