The sound quality of the 45 is very good, worth having it 👍

this has suddenly increased in price for the rarer stock copy, such an ace tune, grabbed a M- stock copy for sensible money, quality soul music

the Belgian popcorn scene is very interesting and they play some great soul records, here's one I aquired recently, a 'Big City' soul sound from 1963 NY

Very true, I've been listening to Popcorn off and on for the last few years, you have to trawl through some mundane stuff but as you say there's some class tunes .I wasn't aware until told by a long time collector the other week you have to be careful as the Belgians apparently were not to shy at booting popular tunes which surprised me, where have we heard that before, made me question a couple of things I've bought recently. Jeff Lane, nice tune.

This is a bright example. Only available as a boot. I can't find it to take a picture

Cracking track from New Birth, who made some great records and featured one of our music's most under rated singers. Wonder what would have happened had Leslie Wilson gone solo and been properly promoted. We'll never know....

Folowing on from the 'Wee Gee' track i posted up on yesterday here we have the full length LP Version Of a track by 'Round Robin Monopoly' which is in my mind on another level to the single version (which i own too) As with Wee Gee this builds and builds to the crescendo at the end with some beautiful Horn Blowing and Soulfulness. Just love it, hope you do too.   Rick

Very nice Rick. A new name to me.

Here's something a bit different. Contemporary US Band who mix soul, blues and rock to very good effect. Maybe not for everyone but i think this is really nice and plenty soulful enough....

Nice track Westender ... didn't think I was going to like it on 'first sight' ... shows how wrong you can be by pre-judging!!!!

Looked them up and this is from their 3rd album 'Carolina Confessions' from 2018 ...available Vinyl/CD (but no digital yet?)

https://www.marcuskingband.colortestmerch.com/collections/all-products/products/carolina-confessions-cd

and checked a few of their other tracks but most (that I can find anyway) are very rock oriented.

Billy made some great records, often with a heavy Gospel flavour. He was a brilliant musician and no mean singer.

Loved this when it was released. Still sounds so very good....

... that's because it's a bootleg! Soul Fox was Simon Soussan's label - he 'allegedly' stole the tapes from Mirwood.  It is actually an unreleased track by The Mirettes titled 'I Want To Do Everything For You Baby' - so the Belles are really The Mirettes.

2 quality tunes you just posted there Rick.  I love the smooth 70s sound!  Got the Gene Middleton on Funk Factory years ago and play out at every opportunity ... just pure class!  Gradually rising in price as it becomes more appreciated.

The Gene Middleton track is a sure fire winner. But flip it over and you get this gem! Great double sider from a very good singer. Shame he didn't record more.

On Discogs the going rate is less for the Andee release .... so checked 45 Cat and sorry to be bearer of bad news but ... it lists it as a bootleg!!!

It looks an odd label with a mix of artists who recorded for other labels and the few that I've checked all the tracks were released earlier on other labels (haven't checked them all) ... so perhaps it was a reissue label (legit or otherwise?) which seemed to span from 1971-75?

Prince Johnny Robinsons version of That girl is rated -X (Andee) was a big spin back in the day (1974) but not seen it listed on any other US label, strange label indeed, Rick

You're right! ... also a good tune ... done later '75 (JRP listed as '74)  on Virtue/Power Exchange (UK) by Ann Byers ... but if you notice on PJR's version the backing singers are singing 'the MAN is rated X' ... whilst he is singing 'That Girl is rated X' so perhaps used the same backing track? ... or perhaps done at same session and JPR's version was dropped but picked up by Andee ... all supposition on my part.

There is also an instrumental version by Virtues with a different title 'Doin' it on Andee (the b side is weird with sitars in it!!!!)  ... so the plot thickens':

Some blurb I found by Tramp Records about Virtue is quite interesting:

"Virtue Studios had a package deal where a group could pay a flat fee of $300-$500, record two songs, and have them pressed as a 45 on their own label, or on the Virtue house label. This package deal resulted in some of the most unusual sounding, low-fidelity soul and garage 45s that are highly sought after today."   ... may explain although Virtue in Philly and Andee in Dade County Florida?

Nice one .. a new one on me ... starts slow but a minute in it grabs you when chorus kicks in. It's like 2 songs in one - the chorus is superb but then it all slows down again and goes a bit funky. It's a grower.  Just checked out the B side which is not too shabby - I'll post it here for others to decide.

Howard Tate - It's Too Late

 

Got this in a Soul Bowl soul pack mid 70s and always 'wondered' about it as at that time it was too jerky/funky ... but it's probably about right for now.  Only 9 releases on the label all by Howard Tate or Lloyd Price except one release from The Coasters.  There's a instrumental version of Heard It Through The Grapevine by Lloyd Price Orch. which 'might' be interesting (or might not) but not heard it (through the grapevine or otherwise 🙂

Also have Howard Tate - Ann Byres and Virtues all of which got plenty of spins.

Would love to know a lot more about Andee Records and Who was behind it all, don't remember seeing anything on Soul- Source in the past but i am sure there may well be someone on here knows a lot more about it than i do 😉

All quiet on the Soulful Front 🤨 But i will not be put off. From 2006 (and Still plenty of them out there 14 years on if you did not pick up on release) but remember great records won't always be around as some of us have found to our cost. A Marvin Gaye ish outing which every Lover of Quality Modern Soul Should Own, Love it! Crank it up and Enjoy, Have a Fab Weekend and be Kind to One Another, Cheers, Rick
