Regular shipping is €10, signed for with tracking is €16

 

 

Matthew Barnett – If your love is real / My only love – Puff 1005

Rare Detroit northern double-sider of the highest order. Very clean and a steal at this price.

Visual grade: M-

€250

 

Soulful Strutters – Just let me know / Soul delight – Strut 101

Largely overlooked release by the guys that gave us ‘Let your feelings go’. This is a top notch ballad in its own right though. Very rarely seen on playlists too, maybe not too well known yet by the sweet soul aficionados?

Visual grade: Strong VG, storage warp NAP

€175

 

 

Peace Love & Happiness – Ain’t nothing but a love thang / Peace love & Happiness – Abab 1001

Mid-70s sweet soul beauty in stunning condition.

Visual grade: M-

€150

 

Jackie Weaver – The tingle / Teenage troubles – Chess 1797

R&B Monster from a very lucky find in my home town. Beautiful copy.

Visual grade: EX

€150

 

Jimmy Norman – I’m leaving (this old town) / If you love her (show it) – Mercury 72727 DJ Copy

Gritty big room Northern in clean condition.

Visual grade: EX

€150

 

Billy and The Moonlighters – Little Indian girl / You made me cry – Crystal Ball 101

Raw R&B cut that was recorded in 1961 but only got released 16 years later. You wonder what took em so long as it’s such a monster. This is an original of course.

Visual grade: EX

€150

 

Charley Simmons – Do the sissy / Why should they pay – PJ 107

Blistering funk with former car mechanic Charles Chuck Simmons as lead singer/shouter.

Visual grade: EX, slight warp NAP

€125

 

Alder Ray – My heart is in danger / I need you, baby – Minit 32005

As far as double-siders go this one's up there with the best. A-side is a scrocher that sets any dance floor on fire, flip is a haunting ballad that really grabs you by the neck, especially after a few spins.

Visual grade: M-

€120

 

Nora Guthrie – Home before dark / Emily’s illness – Mercury 72753 DJ Copy

One of the best melancholic psych records you’ll ever hear in your lifetime. The only record ever release by Woody’s daughter (and Arlo’s sister). 

Visual grade: EX

€120

 

The Hesitations – Is this the way to treat a girl / Yes I’m ready – GWP 504

Mid-tempo northern magic. This one always tends to be scratchy when found ‘in the wild’ this one’s by far the cleanest I’ve ever come across.

Visual grade: M-

€120

 

Jimmy Connor – The reality of life / Let’s get married – Shelly 10604

Cali sweet soul double-sider. Soul Essence sound that’s getting increasingly sought-after lately.

Visual grade: M-, slight warp NAP

€100

 

Johnny Cobb – Hold on to you / Yes I do – Criss Cobb 101

R&B stomper and the former Lenny Johnson cover-up. Super clean copy.

Visual grade: M-

€100

 

The Niteriders – Come get these memories / That almost was me – Niterider 1001

Obscure self-released blue-eyed version of the Martha & The Vandellas cut. Nice version with more dance floor appeal.

Visual grade: M-

€100

 

Kirby Leigh – Lonely walking blues / This time – B-J 100

Killer Cali Mod R&B in beautiful condition. Only release by this artist before fading back into total oblivion.

Visual grade: M-

€80

 

Messiahs of Glory – Thank you / You’ve been so good – Sky Hero 22280

Catchy modern gospel dancer. Audible marks but plays with full fidelity.

Visual grade: VG-

€80

 

Stevadors – Southside / Misty – Savannah International 1102

Super rare Georgia stepper with a crisp open break right at the start and far out synths in the background throughout.

Visual grade: M-

€75

 

The Marlynns – The break / My heart is yours – Tower 103163

1963 Chicago mover with a nice ballad flip. One of the cleaner copies you’ll ever find.

Visual grade: VG+ to EX

€75

 

Delores Eiler – He won’t love you / Undecided – Aqua-Gem 111-3500

Such a cool record! Heavyweight sister funk. Girls answer to Vehicle by the Ides of March but really wipes the floor with the more known version.

Visual grade: M-

€65

 

James Pane – Are you ready Pt I/II – GSP 575

Funky mid-70s rarity. Things really get moving after the switch-up at 1:13

Visual grade: EX, storage warp NAP

€60

 

Big Al (The Lady’s Pal) – Don’t bring (no early mornings) / Instrumental – Big City 1002

Overlooked Chicago stepper with a theme we can all relate to.

Visual grade: EX

€60

 

Byther Smith – Money tree / So unhappy – BeBe 101

Funky Blues dancer. Very clean copy but labels are reversed so watch out when playing this one out!

Visual grade: M-

€55

 

Richard Blandon and The Dubs – Lost in the wilderness / I’m downtown – Vicki 229

Moody funk breaks with a cool garage flip.

Visual grade: M-

€50

 

Bobbi Humphrey – Baby you don’t know / Instrumental – Uno Melodic 800

Killer disco boogie cut by the jazz flautist. Roy Ayers production.

Visual grade: EX

€50

 

Marvin Jackson – Honey, if you love me / World of make believe – Crestwood 619

Cool loner Tennessee C&W / Rockabilly. Self-released in tiny quantities back in 1957 and now almost impossible to find.

Visual grade: VG

€50

 

Arthur Ponder – Oh baby why you want to make me cry / Let’s get together for the wrong we have done – Crow 61

One of the deepest ballads out there and one of the highlights of the now dried-up Flaming Arrow / Crow find from a couple of years back.

Visual grade: M-

€50

 

Lee Moses – Time and place / I can’t take no chances – Front Page 2301

Needs no introduction I guess. My old DJ copy before minting up.

Visual grade: VG to VG+

€45

 

Lori-Ann – Darling say no / Earthquake – Melron 5007

Sixties Philly ballad winner. Actually looks more like an EX but has a couple of pops, likely from the pressing so brought the grade down a notch.

Visual grade: VG+

€45

 

Spellboun’ – Dance your blues Pt II / Carry on – Instant 3335

Sounds like an afterparty to the more well-known Pt I by Ivan Neville. Super killer downtempo spaced out version

Visual grade: M-

€40

 

Bettye Scott and The Del-Vetts – Good feeling / Down, down, down – Teako

Essential Chicago crossover on the rarer green label.

Visual grade: VG+

€30

 

The Royal Jesters – What love has joined together / Wisdom of a fool – Jester 102

Another great 45 by one of the best Chicano soul bands. Top side plays very well, flip is a bit more noisy.

Visual grade: VG

€30

 

J.B. Bingham – Peek-a-boo (mono / stereo) – Warner Brothers 7775 DJ Copy

Super suave soul ballad. This copy was likely unplayed when I found it but has some storage marks causing a bit of crackle during first rotations.

Visual grade: VG to VG+

€25
