  10. Sweet 60’s Souldies A new theme for me, a list of out-and-out 60’s sweet soul charmers and gentle ballads. As a wee chap starting out on the Northern scene, I soon developed a particular love for the male vocal group sound, fast dancers and mid-tempo finger snappers alike, which eventually evolved to include the kind of sweeter tracks that were unplayable on the scene but which sounded irresistible at home. I’ve found such tracks on the flip sides of many in my Northern collection, and some are listed here, but with prominence given to the sweet side. As usual I’ve added YouTube clips so you can to treat your ears to something new, or to remind you how good a tune sounds, but they’re not my records: the one’s I’m selling are pictured. *** ALL ARE IN EX CONDITION UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE *** *** PLEASE READ THE TERMS AT THE BOTTOM IF YOU’RE BUYING SOMETHING *** *** SOLD *** 1 Otis Leavill - Let Her Love Me/ When The Music Grooves £20 a wonderful example of that, light-as-a-feather sweet Chicago sound, with a joyous uptempo classic on the flip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxXBJxh98Jc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-d8rYuWMl4 2 The Compliments - Borrow Til Morning / Beware Beware – Midas £70 early sounding group ballad on this iconic label. ‘Beware’ a fine, later-60’s sounding crossover dance gem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uf3ydIZHVbM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFLGrMn7-hc *** SOLD *** 3 Willie Parker – The Town I Live In / Don’t Hurt The One You Love - MPac £18 Willie does a fine job phrasing like Sam Cooke on the delicate ‘Town’, while ‘Don’t Hurt’ is a sturdy Northern stomper https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDdVK-6eCzA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uY3RLnjolD8 4 The Shadows - No Other Love/ My Love Is Gone - USA £200 two sublime group soul sounds; ‘No Other Love’ a gentle ballad, with the majestic mid-tempo floater ‘My Love Is Gone’ making a superb double sider https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVDi5COLPvo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6JXzsUoMrE 5 The Sensations – Two Can Make It / It’s A New Day - Way Out £20 fabulously consistent group on this label https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r55fx2Gsdc4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R79rIH5AVgE *** SOLD *** 6 The Interpreters - Be Kind To Love – Abet demo £50 sweet southern soul out of Nashville https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3PpLDAcHW4 *** SOLD*** 7 The Occasions - Baby Don’t Go / There’s No You – Big Jim £20 another tale of two sides: delicate sweet soul on A, and lively uptempo on B https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvGx1axtYv0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUlGszr2VSo 8 Thee Midniters – Are You Angry – Chattahoochee £70 the original, almost unrecognisable version of The Servicemen’s much loved Northern classic. Chicano Soul legends Thee Midniters deliver a stripped-down, organ-sax-snare drum slowie that was later released on Whittier, but is a tuff find on Chattahoochee https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyEPzRHcIbo&list=RDWyEPzRHcIbo&start_radio=1 9 The Sensations – Please Baby Please/ Too Shy – Way Out *demo* £25 these guys again! Sublime sweet soul, with Impressions-esque flip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyL0qs-Woo0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V42X2K4GJrY *** SOLD *** 10 The Three Reasons – Go Right On – Carnival £20 quality https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JL-ZuZ3ouLY 11 The Carltons – Hey Mr Lonesome - Argo *demo* £15 it would do this wonderful group a great wrong, to dismiss them as just another Impressions-sound-a-like, but the inspiration of Curtis & Co is loud and clear in their work, and never more so than in this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRkP74qWlds 12 The Festivals - You Got The Makings Of A Lover – Smash £55 lovely, lovely soul that eventually enjoyed exposure after years of languishing on the flip of Northern banger ‘High Wide And Handsome’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6vVtKIHCmQ 13 Black And Blue - Of All The Hearts To Break – Game £40 just an impeccable sweet soul record – words, singing, music all ticking the right boxes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5YZLKxQ6_o *** SOLD *** 14 The Tenth Dymentions - My Love For You Is Growing Wild – Sapphire £15 more Windy City group sweetness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USc1was-EG4 15 The Lintons – Lost Love/ Don’t You Ever Walk Away – Erica £18 a fine gentle jam, with a Stylistics-style mid-tempo flip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_D7qqbWkHPs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_uVlvpiNfI 16 The New Younghearts – The Younghearts Get Lonely Too (vg++ scuff nap) / Why Do You Have To Go – Zea *demo* £15 ‘We Got Togetherness’ it ain’t – no less passionate but significantly more delicate! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y0qzZydloc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wv9QXIyVXuM 17 The Players – That’s The Way – Minit £15 oh man, the harmonies.

Jerome Powell – Mother Said/It’s Alright – 3 WA £30 a wee oddity to finish with. Jerome was a member of The Ascots with his cousins Archie, Eddie and pal Irving Haywood, and these 1972 recordings are updated covers of the above-listed Ascots disc. Unfortunately, I can’t find any online clips of Jerome’s solo versions, so if you don’t know this (and it’s an obscure disc, so you probably don’t), the vocal is true to the original; with lighter, more contemporary backing.

    Maurci Label

    Howdy y'all, found this old thread in a general cyber trawl for info on this particular M-111 release. Not listed in Manship's book, not in Discog's Maurci listing, no reference to it on Popsike. In fact, the only internet reference to it I could find lead me to this page, and I see it get's a reference above. 'I Wouldn't Believe' is , indeed, an inst of Monique M-108, and there's plenty of references to it's M-112 release, with 'Teapot' on the flip, but M-111 has this weird, gritty inst 'Tracking' on the flip, which kinda reminds me of the unreleased Alvin Cash chugger 'Sweatin' , Guy's old Stanley Mitchell c/u. Any idea of a sales price? It's nothing brilliant, definately a Mod club sound if not out-an-out Northern style...
  14. 60’s Crunchers, Grunters ‘n Grinders (and the odd jaunty Northern groover). I’ve added YouTube clips so you can to treat your ears to something new, or to remind you how good a tune sounds, but they’re not my records: the one’s I’m selling are pictured. *** ALL ARE IN EX CONDITION UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE *** *** PLEASE READ THE TERMS AT THE BOTTOM IF YOU’RE BUYING SOMETHING *** 1. ZZ Hill – You Just Cheat And Lie / Everybody Needs Somebody – Kent £25 you gotta love old ZZ, a trooper for occasions. That warm voice never sounded better than on this 6T’s rhythm ‘n soul swinger, and the lovely ballad flip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_GeLKvsjBY 2. *** SOLD *** Little Joe Cook – Don’t You Have Feelings / Hold On to Your Money – Loma vg++ the wee man’s grooving like a good ‘un on this cracking Northern twofer £20 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-F2JsjlKIwI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fJiVU_wEF0 3. *** SOLD *** Jimmy Holiday - Shield All Around – KT £30 another cracker from Jimmy and another from the Stafford tape swapper’s circuit. Seldom mentioned in despatches these days, sadly… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbE4r5lXYwk 4. *** SOLD *** The Geminis – You Put A Hurtin On Me / A Friend of Mine () – RCA demo £15 vg+ with surface scratches, plays fine. Proper gritty, fist pumping Northern, nae pish. Mellows out slightly with a fine Ashford/Simpson/Armstead number on the flip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NAd1q6sYRg https://www.discogs.com/The-Geminis-You-Put-A-Hurtin-On-Me/release/5338621 5.

Hard as nails pounder that’s as in yer face as the title suggests. Not too clever to look at, this copy, we’re talking vg+ so it’s priced accordingly, but it plays loud ‘n proud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiTYDI_S0Jo 1*** SOLD *** 1. Johnny Sayles – Don’t Turn Your Back On Me – Mar V Lus £20 a right, tough-as-old-boots Chicago grinder to finish with. We know Johnny could wail with the best of ‘em but ye Gods, he sounds like he’s in pain here.
