  1. 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 *** 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 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 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. Simply sublime! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z34BidyCbiU 18 The Radiations - Love Be Not A Stranger - Valise £20 feather-light falsetto obscurity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpyFs2BpWag 19 The Chi LItes – Love Is Gone – Revue £15 you know what’s in store with these guys, fine Chicago sweet soul https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcCc7maMRu0 20 The Caesars – You Better Get Yourself Together / La La I Love You – Lanie £30 another fine double sider: super mellow, low rider souldie on one, joyous dancer on the other https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqBgm1xPzyE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSciVUAYaRs 21 The Ascots – Mother Said/Yes It’s Alright – Mir A Don £100 just the sight or sound of the words ‘The Ascots/Mir A Don’ is enough to get collector’s pulses racing, and while this is no dancer like their ‘Another Day’, ‘Miss Heartbreaker’ or ‘Anytime’, it’s group harmony heaven. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-cbXfVJWc8 22. 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. Ok, usual jive applies: • YouTube clips are not my records, I’ve included them to let you hear something new or remind you how good these are. My records are pictured. • PM your interest, but add a comment that the PM’s on the way • Orders under £50 add £3 for shipping by First Class Signed For; over £50 add £8 for Special Delivery. You can opt out of SD at your own risk, but you’ll only be compensated up to £50 if the records are lost or knackered in the post. Overseas customers – please ask for shipping rates • Payment by PayPal or Bank Transfer only. If PayPal, please pay as a gift, or add 5% to the total (inc P&P) if paying as a business transaction • All are at least in Ex condition unless stated otherwise • Honest Al’s money back guarantee on safe return, within 14 days of receipt, of a purchase where you disagree with my vinyl grading • Wanna haggle on price? They’re all well priced as it is, but go ahead - it does no harm to ask, but a firm ‘GTF’ may be the response… Right, that’s yer lot – let’s be ‘avin yer! Cheers
  2. Mary Love & Koko Taylor sold
  3. Northern of every hue… All manner of 60’s Northern sounds here. 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 (apart from Chessmen and Johnny Nash) *** ALL ARE IN EX CONDITION UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE *** *** PLEASE READ THE TERMS AT THE BOTTOM IF YOU’RE BUYING SOMETHING *** *** SOLD *** Alex Brown – What Would You Do Without Someone To Love / I’m In Love – Tangerine vg++ £15 lovely uptempo dancer, every home should have one *** SOLD *** Carl Hal – I Don’t Wanna Be Your Used To Be £25 The Chessmen – Why Can’t I Be Your Man/ Nothing But You – Chess £45 ‘Why’ might the classic, but ‘Nothing’ is the side for me. Superb midtempo with a wee hint of The Temps ‘It’s Growing’ to my ears (this side is vg++ with some surface scratching, but plays big & clear). Pics are lifted from Google Images after I stoopidly deleted photos from my phone… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SendeGJ1gbk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7orBNFFocDs *** SOLD *** Cicero Blake – Face The Case / Here Comes The Heartchache – Tower £25 vg++ FTC is the uptempo side here, but I’ll be buggered if I could find a clip of it online. Purdy damn good it is, but then I would say that with no clip to back it up! The nice, mellow flip however, is on YouTube… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrQwlZ-0dJU *** SOLD *** Contributors of Soul – Look What You Done For Me / I Don’t Know– New Miss £12 quality cheapie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qnCqv5AZkk *** SOLD *** Jimmy Dobbins – Little Miss Perfect – Crash £18 aptly named label for this crash-bang-walloping 100mph stomper! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjr1dGKFEZs Johnny Moore – Such A Wonderful Feeling vg++/ Without Your Love vg+ – Blue Rock £20 two cracking, late 60’s Chicago crossover style dancers. Conditions dictate the price here, surface scratches on view and some styrene hiss to be heard, but the really do play loud and proud! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYI-5OhzcJw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0qSm53Xleg Johnny Nash – Good Goodness – MGM £28 powerhouse stomper. Another Google image used for the photo, see Chessmen for explanation…) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu3txpXVR7k *** SOLD *** Koko Taylor – Fire – Checker £20 Can’t believe this belting, bollock-kicker didn’t sell last time, despite all the likes. *** SOLD *** Mary Love - Let Me Know - Modern £15 6T’s classic, the closing track on the first ever Kent compilation (and I claim Pointless Fact of The Week Award!) Sam and Kitty – Your Money My Love - Four Brothers £35 understandably overshadowed by ‘I’ve Got Something Good’, this here is fine old stomper in it’s own right https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rHwYpITU6o The Soultones – You And Me Baby – Valise vg++ £30 Proper, no nonsense, old skool northern – yeeha! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTQC7DFRf9c The Naturelles - Love Has Joined Us Together / Show Me The Way – Venture *demo* £30 Mickey Stevenson headetd to LA and set up Venture after falling out with Gordy, and by accident or design some of the label’s output sound like pure Motor City productions. Like these https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pM1iLlQKQA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfCO7ZA49-M *** SOLD *** The Visitors – Anytime Is The Right Time / Never The Less – Tangerine *demo* £60 cheapest price on the interweb for this solid twofer from this ever reliable group. And it comes with The Len Jewell Guarantee of Excellence! The Whispers – Flying High – Soul Clock £25 their least known dancer on Soul Clock (1st issue green label, too), this is a gorgeous, string laden joy of a tune! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJzuK217Lv4 Ok, usual jive applies: • YouTube clips are not my records, I’ve included them to let you hear something new or remind you how good these are.

    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...
  5. 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.

Mostly 60’s, mostly Stafford-y type sounds, augmented with some tasteful oldies and splendid 70’s & 80’s. Think it’s worth highlighting there’s a good few double sided twofers in there, check ‘em out. 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.

Jeff Dale – A Suffering Pain / Our Love Will Grow Stronger – Atco demo £45 snail’s paced, agonising, sombre soul. Slight tear on the label, quite possibly after Jeff tried to slash his wrists and missed! Thankfully he jollies himself up on the jaunty flip! *** SOLD *** 4. Charles Mintz – Since I Found You – Uplook £35 Charlie was the voice of The Delegates of Soul and this is a similar sounding, feel, good uptempo dancer that’s criminally overlooked 5. Felice Taylor – I Can Feel Your Love – Kent demo £45 proper, old skool 6T’s, on the first ever Kent compilation as I recall https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kx2fTXF8tqk 6. The Forevers – What Goes Around – Weis £50 the label might bear Stax’s address at 926 East McLemore but this is an uptown stomper that’s pure Northern. ‘Soul Town’ on the flip is more what you’d expect from the neighbourhood, with a real down home feel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6irFrpzsfc 7. The Fantaisions – Unecessary Tears/ That’s Where The Action Is - Satellite £25 lovely, sweet girly mid-tempo. ‘Action’ on the flip is one of those great Chicago party records I imagine would have went down a treat with Mods at The Wheel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cS11Uh-fsaA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Jsynn9Or3M *** SOLD *** 8. Blues Busters - Love Is The Answer / Speak Your Mind – Minit demo £55 somebody, somewhere, has a void in their lives that only these gloriously joyful slabs of feel good Northern/Crossover/Funky vibes will fill.

The Compliments – Beware Beware/Borrow Til Morning – Midas £60 gorgeous, mid-tempo crossover dancer on one side, with some gorgeous sweet soul on the flip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFLGrMn7-hc *** SOLD *** 15. Maxine Brown – Let Me Give You My Loving – Wand £75 and speaking of gorgeous mid tempo dancers! Lush strings, discreet brass and that dreamy voice = intoxicating Big City Soul https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yUaKX_avUhk 70’s & 80’s *** SOLD *** Bobby Foster – If You Really need A Friend / Building Up (For A Let Down) – Sound Plus £35 vg++ fab double sider: ‘Friend’ is a cracking early 70’s crossover dancer, while ‘Building’ is Southern Soul balladeering at it’s best *** SOLD *** Brotherly Love – Whole Lotta You In Me – Robinson & Son £45 I remember this being the sound at a Southport Weekender as a new release, more DJ’s acquired a copy the longer the weekend progressed, come Sunday it was as hammered as the punters and everybody’s earworm! Circle o’ Fire – Have It Your Way – Stax demo £25 vg++ mono & stereo, light sticker residue on stereo side as shown. When was this gem played: Clifton Hall? Early Stafford? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ZlAaW3L4rA *** SOLD *** Four Sonics – If It Wasn’t for My Baby/There’s No Love – JMC £50 an old Dave Thorley – or was it Robin Salter – spin from Stafford, mid tempo modern groover from what may or may not be the Detroit 60’s group The Masqueraders – Desire – Bang £15 The most loved vocal groups on the scene? This is a vibrant and just downright happy belter of a track, guaranteed to get every bugger bouncing about the floor with daft grins on their phizzogs.

They’re all well priced as it is, but go ahead - it does no harm to ask, but a polite ‘GTF’ may be the response… Right, that’s yer lot – let’s be ‘avin yer! Cheers
