  1. Credits of Cold Feet refer to the Northern Soul Adviser as Pottsy from Aycliffe, great choice for opening episode, but the intro to Frank Wilson was a bit predictable (Strictlyesque!) and the pumped up happy family scene gross! All in all the exposures great, especially the likes of For the Love of Dogs where I note some tunes underpinning the visuals

  3. You could say you wait ages for one, then like buses two come by almost the same time! That said it’s still not often this fantastic crossover 45 come ups! Happy to provide additional pictures or sound files if requested. PM any questions or to reserve. Matt Brown – Everyday (I love you just a little bit more) – Jar-Val 0004 Ex+ £800 Hampton Swain from Macon, Georgia, was a multitude of things, but mainly he was and entrepreneur, the owner of a very successful car dealership, so successful in fact that it funded another enterprise, a record shop, which in turn provided the platform for Jar-Val records. Hamp as he was known scouted for talent at the many shows in town, using his local Radio DJ status to pick out some of the City’s aspiring artists to record for him. One such artist was Matthew (Matt) Brown, who was to join Hamp and Tee Fletcher for 2 recordings on the label, the first “Everyday” was set down at LeFevre Studios in Atlanta, and later dubbed over with horns at Macon's Capricorn Studio. The second “Thank You Baby” on Jar-Val 006 backed with the equally superb “Sweet thing” was recorded at the Cheshire Bridge Road Studio in Atlanta. “Thank you baby” is a crossover version of Wendell Parkers Josie 970 release. All 3 tracks are very similar in style, with that unmistakable Tee Fletcher influence. So as not to confuse you, it’s the 0004 release I’ve pulled from the boxes, not 0006!, and based on the Vg+ copy that sold a week ago, priced to reflect the improved condition. Just a couple of very light hardly discernible marks, that do not affect play in any way, leaves it a shade off M-. Clean labels. PayPal as friends or add 4% please, or I can send bank details.

  5. Just the one Volunteer State monster up for grabs tonight. PM any questions or to reserve, sound file below. Prince Conley – I’m going home – Satellite 108 Ex- £750 ON HOLD Rhythm and Soul of epic proportions. This attractive label was the pre-cursor for the mighty Stax label, founded in 59 by Jim Stewart, probably of Jimmy & Spartans on release 106, and partner Estelle Axton, later to marry Stewart. They moved their operation, which was originally named Capitol from Brunswick to Memphis, basing it in an old cinema, but were forced to take on the Satellite title due to a rival on the west coast using Capitol. Whilst the day to day production was down to Jim, it was Estelle’s masterstroke to open the Satellite Record Shop as the front for sales, not just their own, but other labels used to draw in punters, maximizing their own. This coincided with Conley’s output, but is likely to have been propped up by the success of the 102 release, performed by a popular DJ Rufus Thomas and his unrecorded daughter, one Carla Thomas. Nothing is known of Prince Conley, even after Rob Bowman the author of “Soulsville USA” – The story of Stax Records pleaded in his forward to readers to come forward with any information on Prince Conley to let him know. This remains a rare and now in-demand Memphis 45, and when you consider its 1961 issue date, its R&B qualities are well before its time, superb vocals and a killer organ break, which makes a change from the usual horn breaks so common across the genre. The vinyl, which sports only scattered light marks, plays better at Ex/Ex+. It’s the labels that have some light grubbiness due to play mat action that forces me to grade it Ex- overall.

  8. A few for sale before the end of year bell chimes, a nice mix of tunes that cut across the Northern genre. PM any questions or to reserve, sound files on request. Richard Paradise – Let me stay – A&T 128 M- £1000 (One of the harder to find modern soul biggies, which came out on LP, 12 & 7" formats. The Solid Gold LP, in itself rare enough, commands a £300-400 price tag. I read that Steve Guarnori spun this very hard to find New York 45 covered up as “Daybreak – I wanna stay”, and the longer LP version, which was covered as the “Patterson Twins” appears on playlists. Strikes me as a very small in-house production, with the writer Richard Watson, being one and the same as the arranger, producer and artist Richard Paradise, quite the jack of all trades!) Connie Stevens – Tick-tock – Bell 922 Promo M- £300 (You’ve gotta give this track credit, its new breed girly Northern, pleasant and graceful, yet holds an edge as it builds chorus to chorus, picking up the pace on this fine dancer) Frankie Lyman & his All Stars – I’m sorry – Big Apple 100 M- £1200 (Everything you want from an intro, storming horn and string fanfare ushering in Frankie’s typically smooth but lilting vocal on punchy backing, all of which makes for a 45 that defines staple “Northern”. Sadly, this super talented artist died from a drugs overdose at the age of 25, but boy did he fit in a lot of ups and downs in that short time. Remained a rare 45, even more so in this high grade condition. Just a small label nick on flipside spindle hole) Billy Davis – Stanky – Cobblestone 731 M- dh £125 (Been very popular this last few years, in great shape) Ray Marchand – Your ship of fools – Dore 763 Vg++ £550 (Always been a rare label number, and what a track, seen at nearly treble in less condition on DISCOGs, have I got this so wrong, or is this a bargain. Whilst the vinyl has some marks, and there’s some light pops on intro pops, there’s nothing to overwhelm an enjoyable audio experience. Labels show some discolouration round the edges) Billy Kent – Take it all this time / Love me forever – Expo 104 M- OFFERS (This 60s-70s Chicago label, operated by producer and radio DJ Bill Lasley along with Celtex and O-Pex stable mates is for many, one of thee finest crossover tunes to surface throughout the course of northern existence. Its thought provoking lyrics laid down in a similar style to Richard Caiton’s biggies. Nearly as good flip side too! Billy had the pleasure of working with Motown’s in house backing girls “The Andantes” on the Mah’s label, lucky fella! Very light edge lift, and a small mark causes a couple of light pops toward end, nothing you wouldn’t expect from the quality of many pressings, otherwise immaculate. Still very hard to find and in-demand, will let it run until 8pm Thu 02 Jan, min £400 unless I get an acceptable offer in between) Emanuel Laskey – Don’t lead me on baby – Thelma 106 M- £200 (What an artist, another stunning vocal masterpiece on the one of Detroit’s most packed label catalouges) Toni Ross – Hurry back – Har-Town 002 Ex+ £1200 (Gorgeous female dancer, probably semi-known due to rarity, that’s got legs on this scene) Eddie Holland – I’m on the outside looking in – Motown 1049 WD M- £150 (Feint ring wear) Barbara McNair – You’re gonna’ love my baby – Motown 1087 WD M- £200 SOLD (If you make no other purchase in 2020, pick up her “The Real Barbara McNair” LP, it’s not to be missed with at least 3 LP only tracks, pure pleasure. Feint ring wear) E. Rodney Jones – Peace of mind – Tuff 421 Ex £250 (Verges on the edge of being menacing, stunning lyrics, one for the car, LOVE this, graded Ex due to couple of light handling marks, plays through M- no problems, dh) Velvelettes – Lonely lonely girl am I – V.I.P. 25017 WD M- £175 (One of the best up-tempo girl group dancers from Jobete, one very light graze, DNAP) Debbie Dean – Why am I loving you – V.I.P. 25044 WD M- £100 (Gorgeous dancer, that grows and grows with each revolution) PayPal as friends or add 4% please, or I can send bank details.

  9. Happy to provide additional pictures or sound files if requested. PM any questions or to reserve. Connie Stevens – Tick-tock – Bell 922 WD M- £300 (You’ve gotta give this track credit, its new breed girly Northern, soft and pleasant yet catchy and memorable, a smooth one to dance too, and one that sticks in your head, selling this one for a mate). Postage: £7.50 – Special Delivery full insurance for 45’s up to £500 Overseas on request Cheers, Lee Cheers, Lee

  11. Here’s a Midwest killer for your consideration. PM any questions or to reserve, sound files on request. Mamie P. Galore – No right to cry – Sack 4361 M- dh £650 A windy city masterclass registered to Vee Pea, or Virginia P. Bland as she’s better known, and married to Milton Bland, the one and only Monk Higgins. Both were heavily linked to a host of Chicago labels, obviously the smaller short lived Special Agent, Sack and St. Lawrence outfits, but also the Chess, Checker, Cadet conglomerate. Vee Pea’s credentials appear on many of these releases either as a writer or publisher. Having moved to Chicago, Higgins started recording for George Learnera at One-derful Records, and prior to St. Lawrence. Whilst at St. Lawrence, he hired his cousin Barbara (Acklin) Hackling as a secretary. Higgins recorded her “I’m not mad anymore” for his Special Agent label. Mamie Galore also relocated to Chicago, signing with Dick Simon’s St. Lawrence label in 1965. Sadly, she passed away in Mississippi back in 2001, but not without leaving us a raft of outings on St. L, Thomas, Sack and Imperial. This 1967 release came on a label occupied with single releases by Bobbie Jean Bland, Tyrone Davis, Lewise Bethune and Don Gardner, all of whom are entrenched in the richness of Chicago’s musical tapestry. Whilst condition is conservative M-, the label is slightly off centre with a drill hole. PayPal as friends or add 4% please, or I can send bank details.

  12. Here’s another platter of soulful delights to get your taste buds around. PM any questions or to reserve, sound files on request. Cliff Nobles – Your love is getting stronger – Atlantic 2352 DJ M- £500 SOLD (What more can any self-respecting Soulie want than a powerhouse northern monster. For me one of the very best examples of a fit for purpose dance floor filler and my trigger for pressing right up to the national speed limit, windows down – woohooh! Lovely copy on the red and white DJ format, nuff said) Montclairs – Hey you, don’t fight it – Arch 1305 M- £2000 SOLD (1969 debut release for this super talented group, made up of Kevin Sanlin, Phil Perry, George McLellan, David Frye, and Clifford Williams. Unfortunately, they never quite realised the success the output their performing, writing and producing skills deserved. If this fabulous East St, Louis crossover dancer isn’t enough on its own, the Mississippi steamer logo multi-coloured label might suck you in and trip you over the edge. I’ve never seen a copy in this condition come to market, and apart from a single pressing bubble, its near mint on the labels and surface, outstanding!) Ray Marchand – Your ship of fools – Dore 763 Vg++ £550 (Always been a rare label number, and what a track, seen at nearly treble in less condition on DISCOGs, have I got this so wrong, or is this a bargain? Whilst the vinyl has some marks, and there’s some light pops on intro, there’s nothing to overwhelm an enjoyable audio experience. Labels show some discolouration round the edges) Toni Ross – Hurry back – Har-Town 002 Ex+ £1200 (Gorgeous female dancer that ekes a traditional northern style, none of this commercial malarkey, probably semi-known due to rarity, but it’s got legs on this scene for a smart enterprising DJ. Leaves me gobsmacked how a couple of copies can go for well in excess of this 3-4 months ago and this sit around wallowing in the ugly friend queue, priced to sell mind) Next up…… 5 premier Motown stable dancers. I’m only letting these go after finding replacements and it has nothing to do with upgrading conditions either, these are all in top shape, it’s just my craving for West Coast demo’s. Collectively these stunning East Coast and Mid-West pressed 45s represent the talent, inspiration and innovation of the likes of Holland, Dozier, Holland, Whitfield and Stevenson, credentials that wreak of CLASS! I’ve seen stock copies of all these for sale recently at these prices, and yet the demos are significantly harder to find. Eddie Holland – I’m on the outside looking in – Motown 1049 WD M- £150 (Feint ring wear) Barbara McNair – You’re gonna’ love my baby – Motown 1087 WD M- £200 (Feint ring wear) Frances Nero – Keep on lovin’ me – Soul 35020 WD M- £200 SOLD Velvelettes – Lonely lonely girl am I – V.I.P. 25017 WD M- £200 (One very light graze, DNAP) Debbie Dean – Why am I loving you – V.I.P. 25044 WD M- £100 P.S – I have more Motown demos for sale, please PM PayPal as friends or add 4% please, or I can send bank details.
