12 Modern / XO bargains


Recommended Posts

Hi All

Here are some cost effective tunes from old stock from a long closed record shop. Most are unplayed but where there are any signs of use I'll state that and give a grade. I use UK grades NM, Ex and VG and +/- to refine. No $20 postage and no 20% VAT !!!

Payment is Paypal F&F please, or add 4% if that is preferred.

Postage is £2.00 UK First, £3.5 Recorded and £5.00 worldwide.

YT clips are for reference, all sales 100% guaranteed

PM questions or to order.

Cheers

Andy

1. We know her from her Motown days and some great early recordings but she went on to record for the likes of ATCO, Arista. 20th Cent and here we have a lovely lilting crossover tune for Reprise in original cover.

Mary Wells - If you cant give her love - Reprise £10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeRagy2c-g0

2. The title is a classic and very expensive modern stepper, but the WDJ is a mispress playing the issue copy side "Trademark". The good news is that you still get a lovely tune and don't have to re-mortgage your house buy it.

Crystal Clear - Trademark - Polydor WDJ £30

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKAdzhF0nZ0

3. A unique voice with a couple of high priced Northern outings against her name, but she's here with her take on the Eddie Floyd tune. Even the wife likes this one !!

 

Esther Phillips - I never found me a man - Kudu £10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nGVIV6VxQE

 

4. The artist needs no introduction from me - a legend. Known on this label for his jaunty "Old People" tune, this is more of a gravelly voiced low down stepper which grows on you.

Archie Bell & Drells - Strategy - PIR £10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNOxU_ThMAQ

5. After the break up of The Brighter Side of Darkness, two band members went on to create The Imaginations and record 3 outings for 20Th Century. This is a lovely uptempo xover tune with smooth vocals and a catchy rhythm. Ex+ condition on this one.

The Imaginations - Searching - 20th Cent £10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJyTdUklW2s

6. Here are the imaginations again with another catchy xover tune. Ex copy

The Imaginations - Sweet Mona - 20th Cent £8 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxRma2ytTNE

7. Now here's a bargain for you. Tim Brown listed this at £100 and said it was a rare tune and a cracking laid back version of Pat Lundy on Vigor.

Rhinestones - Party Music - 20th Cent £30

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T-TgULgAVs

8. Here an old spin for Soul Sam and a lovely soulful stepper that seems to capture the mood of the Sunday chillout today and also gained lock down spins

Hot Bush - Tell me you will - APA £5

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lyi_EZ7vMOY

9. The queen of soul does crossover. Here's Aretha with a lovely uptempo number and a real grower.

Aretha Franklin - April Fools - Atlantic £5

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OAMQWAUCaM

10. The great Bill 'Bunky' Sheppard strikes with his own group on this overlooked crossover gem which deserves to be played. A cracking low rider on the flip for good measure. Last Copy

The Sheppards - Your Love ( has a hole in it) - Bunky £20

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-9Gpc4PAkc

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCR8RVzk2NY - Low Rider tune

11. A modern soul classic, but one which has some surface marks which cause 4 ticks in the first 5 seconds of play and then its perfect after that with perfect label etc. So a bargain for someone

Alicia Myers - I wanna than you - MCA VG (only because of the ticks) £5  (might throw this in if anyone buys something else ! )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9wGnnwBc9M

12. An absolute dancefloor killer and remake of Bread's I wanna make it with you, from probably my favourite band of all time, the Whispers. Have a listen and then dance round the kitchen

The Whispers - I wanna make it with you - Soul Train M- £15 (black promo copy same both sides - one side very small label tear but not really noticeable)
