    Bill "I Feel Good With You"
  1. Hello and welcome to the first list of the new year! No list last month makes for an extra meaty one this time around! A few standouts from each section below. PM to reserve. Modern Soul & Two Step 45’s – She Devil “Love dreams” (widely unknown and fab 2 step), Gil Scott-Heron UK only super indemander, Bliss “Stomp” (super rare on 7”), Trans-National Funk Co (super rare with alternative flipside “Brand new day”) plus a whole bunch of classic major label titles from artists like Breakwater, Bill Coday and David Ruffin ranging from £5 to £175. Northern & Crossover 45’s – NS we have some killer dance tracks from Clara Hardy, Narvel Felts “Girl come back”, Sam Fletcher, George Wydell “From out of nowhere”, crossover ones Carol Anderson “Sad girl”, Pointer Sisters “Send him back” and Al Williams “The other side of your love” + many more. Ballad/Deep/Sweet/Group Harmony on 45 – Herman Davis “Gotta be loved”, Johnny Gilliam on Bo-Mar (with killer NS flip), Berganees double header (loads of interest on the last copy), Tempos “I call it love” (superb take on the Manhattans track), Spiritual Harmonizers “God’s love” plus an array of great and cheaper ones. Previously Unissued/Re-Issue 45’s – Superb previously unissued track such as Carla Thomas “I’ll never stop loving you”, Loreli “God and you” (female version of the Topics/Tropics/Ultimates track, with the Topics/Tropics version on the flip) and Chuck Brooks. High quality reissues of dead rare/expensive modern/xover classics from Timeless Legend, Tolbert, Kool Blues, Fluorescent Smogg and Patrinell Staten. Last but not least there’s 12” and album sections. Where you’ll find classic titles from Eliminators, Brothers Unlimited, Blair and Barbara Lewis. There’s also a very clean copy of the fantastic This is Eleanore Mills LP on which more or less every track is a winner. So a few essentials for the fan of crossover soul. As always – paypal payments over £150 needs to be sent as family/friends. Alternatively add 4% to cover the fees. BR, Karl Modern Soul & Two Step 45’s She Devil – Love dreams – Charm City / VG+ / OFFERS (Killer, killer two step. Their rarer 45, and seen more copies of the Toast 45 on the same label. Hard one to price so taking offers on this one. Vinyl has some light marks, plays ok but not perfect, hear the actual copy in the video below.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdXYfG7Dxok Trans-National Funk Co. – Brand new day / Funkafied – AMG / EX / OFFERS (Best thing on the label, and one of the rarest.

  12. PM to reserve! Hello and welcome to the June 2018 list! I’ve barely recovered from the first, and fantastic, Liverpool Soul Weekender. Hats off to arrangers Ryan Wilson and Flanny Jr (Liam Flanders) who did a great job putting it all together. I hope it will be the first in many! The list this month is another good one with great and seldom seen records in all price ranges. There’s a few solid 12 inchers and albums towards the end. From the 45 sections the modern soul one is probably the strongest. Talking of soul weekenders the Stockholm one was absolutely solid too. After it me and arranger Carl Hedberg got together with international guests Bob Snow, Terry Wright and Kouki Shinada recording 2h45m mix which can be heard here.
