  1. Hi Zanetti, youre welcome, just dont want what we do know to be forgotten, and in a roundabout way, recognise the artist, owners, writers, producers and promoters associated with this vast musical genre. Ta, Lee

PM and questions or to reserve. Thelma Houston – Baby mine – Capitol 5767 WD Ex- £200 SOLD (Infectious dancer.

  3. Im sure you know and its just a typo but local release on Noel not Nola, Lee
  4. For many years I’d taken an uninformed unlike (not as strong as a dislike) to Berry, based on his failed relationship with Raynoma, and what I read or thought I read was, his interfering / undermining her own business interests, namely Shrine with Eddie Singleton. I almost blamed Berry for the demise of Shrine and therefore my access to this mythical catalogue. Beyond that Ive never really payed attention to whether he or any other Motown employee was good or bad, lets face it theres good and bad everywhere and we all interpret or assess it differently. I’m not even sure we should be ta
  5. A pair of cheaper end goodies up for grabs, which if you don’t know I would highly recommend you listening to. Sound files and additional images available if you want. PM and questions or to reserve. Fabulettes – The bigger they are – Monument 901 DJ M- £75 (Nashville label with plenty of soulful output. Lovely girly dancer, almost dreamy, but a finger popper) Diamond Joe – Wait a minute baby / How to pick a winner – Sansu 454 WD Ex+ £40 (A fabulous pair of palatable R&B tunes. For mains we have “Wait”, a piercing church choir style backing intro, shim
  6. Looking for a mint minus Elsie Strong - Ask the lonely - Sounds International out of Norfolk VA. Please state price if you have one you're willing to sell. Cheers, Lee
  7. Couple of spare long players, which I certainly wouldn’t let go if they weren’t duplicates. Graded cover first / vinyl second. PM any questions or to reserve? Garland Green – Jealous Kind of Fella – Uni 73073 Stereo Ex+ / M- £60 SOLD The liner notes on this classic LP are a collection of accolades for the artist from contemporaries in Chicago’s radio station world, particularly one E. Rodney Jones. With Josie Armstead, who was at the helm of the Giant, Gamma and Globe labels, and magnificent Mike Terry’s close oversight of this album, it’s no surprise its steeped in cla
  8. It’s a glorious day on the south coast, perfect for dabbling in vinyl, so here’s a bright and bubbly selection of Northern sales for your delectation! Sound files and additional images available if you want. PM and questions or to reserve. Barbara Mason – Bobby, is my baby – Arctic 120 Ex £50 SOLD (Same backing as the Rotations – Dime on D-9, and why not share amongst friends in the same Philly stable) Bobby Black – Right on – Axis 117 M- £275 (Lovely piano intro to this finger popping, girly backed dancer out of New Jersey, owned and operated by Artus Sut
  9. Todays classic northern winner is also a superb double sider ….. 7th Avenue Aviators – You should o’ held on / Boy next door – Congress 255 WD Ex £1600 SOLD Drawing on his Gospel roots, Frankie Karl used his US Air Force time like he did his youth, growing his musical talent and forming the Chevrons along with Herbert Holmes and Kenneth Calvert. Whilst Karl had experience performing and recording with the likes of Billy Preston and Gloria Jones, it was his pal Holmes who did the important bit, penning the uptempo “You should o’ held on” and the midtempo and under the radar flip “Boy
  10. Just one up for grabs, pm any questions or offers….. Al McCarther – His true love for you – Two Guitars 900 Ex Offers SOLD This just has to be one of the most subtle beat ballads known to the scene, luxuriously rich vocals, light drum intro, meandering flute and string backing on a wave of melancholy dreaminess, a gem and to die for. Remained remarkably hard to find over the years, so much so that it was booted to meet the demands of the “Popcorn” scene traditional to Europe, but don’t worry this is a genuine machine stamped original. We can safely assume it’s an east coast pr
  11. Just the one beauty today. Sound files available on request, PM any questions or to reserve. SOLD Silhouettes – Not me baby – Goodway 101 Promo M- £2000 SOLD It’s a fact that this 45 wasn’t released to sell on the open market and was simply used to promote the reinvention of this Philly doo-wop group, known mainly for their 1958 chart topper “Get a job”. The album titled “The Original and New Silhouettes” featured previous recordings by original members, including lead Bill Horton of Kayden label fame, and 3 new recordings by a mix of old and new members, including a “John Bootsie
  12. Just one major label offering up for grabs today. Sound file and additional images available if you want. PM any questions or to reserve. Youth Opportunity Program – Of hopes, dreams and tombstones – Columbia 43407 WD M- £950 Titled more like a spaghetti western, but reality is soon restored with the unmistakable harmonica intro punctured by the stern vocals of Jimmy Fraser, all played out on the back of a rampant beat with occasional catch your breath pauses that will allow just enough time to regather your dance floor composure. A classic example of a Northern stomper that's in gre
  13. A grip full of across the board classics and semi-knowns proving that great soul doesn’t have to be 3 or 4 figures. Sound files and additional images available if you want. PM and questions or to reserve. Barbara Mason – Bobby, is my baby – Arctic 120 Ex £50 (Same backing as the Rotations – Dime on D-9, and why not share amongst friends in the same Philly stable) Bobby Black – Right on – Axis 117 M- £275 (Lovely piano intro to this finger popping, girly backed dancer out of New Jersey, owned and operated by Artus Sutterfield) Funky Sisters – Do it, d

  16. Lovely stack of wax up for grabs, a mix of traditional Northern crossover and R&B sound files available if you want. PM and questions or to reserve. Volcano’s – It’s against the RULES of love – Arctic 115 WD Ex+ £325 (Fabulous 60’s group Northern, on the rarest format, mistitled first pressing. Comes with obligatory writing on label to correct the error, adds to authenticity in my opinion) Bobby Black – Right on – Axis 117 M- £300 (Easygoing groover in tip top shape) Curtis, The Brothers – When love goes wrong – Bell 959 Promo M- £550 (Turn
  17. Picked up a couple of CD's, haven't done so in a while, was surprised I still had some means to play them as my iPhone tech doesn't include a CD tray , the Classiest Rarities 7 is absolutely superb, highly recommended and contains an unissued track which is probably the best thing I have heard for many many years, made my day being privy to music like that. Birth of Soul CD very pleasant too. Service, packaging, delivery time all spot on . Cheers
  18. A lovely clutch to brighten up your evening. As ever sound files available on request, PM any questions or to reserve. Beverly Brown - You got me helpless - ABS 108 M- £600 SOLD (Super rare NOLA soul, my first and only other copy flew out 6-7 years ago, only ever seen one other copy since then sell in 2018 at £500. Completely under the radar due to rarity and most likely never to emerge in numbers since the southern States including New Orleans went under water with Hurricane Katrina) Bobby Black – Right on – Axis 117 M- £300 (Beautiful floater, great cond
  19. Couple of spare long players, which I certainly wouldn’t let go if they weren’t duplicates. Graded cover first / vinyl second PM any questions or to reserve? Edwin Starr – 25 Miles – Gordy 940 Ex- / Ex+ £20 SOLD Mix of classic and LP only tracks from this lifelong Ambassador of Soul to the UK, fantastic LP in nice condition, including “25 miles”, “He who picks the rose”, “24 Hours (to find my Baby)”, “Soul city” and the rest. I dunno where you get more from your buck than this quality collection of Motown from the Soul Master himself. Cover seems intact, more wear on

  23. As promised earlier this week, here’s a handful of good un’s up for set sale. Sound files available on request, PM any questions or to place an offer. Towanda Barnes – You don’t mean it – A&M 1141 Ex+ £500 SOLD Harlem’s own Gloria Barnes of course, and produced much in the likeness of the Flodavieur’s mentioned latterly, intentional off-key piano ivories and rasping horns, a hint of femme fatale menace over the sparse uncomplicated instrumentation, all guided by the astute Johnny Brantley. Delivered at an upbeat pace and just the most incredible vocals. With single
