  3. Hello and welcome to the May 2019 list! First out there’s a bit shorter modern soul 45 section this time around. But the list also end with a bunch of albums with lots of great modern soul titles in it so do look closely in both if that’s your preferred soul music. Highlights includes a couple of indie labels releases by Cloudburst, Backyard construction and Up from the Bottom and major label ones from Buddy Miles, Roy Ayers, Mighty Fire and more. The northern soul/crossover section is filled to the brim, TSU Toronadoes “What good am I?” on the first local label, Soul Shakers on Loma, Pamoja’s fantastic double header and Limitations on Volt, cheap classics and many more. We have a rather long selection of hard to find/out of print recent releases and reissues. And there’s a also short but sweet Sweet/Deep/Group section before the aforementioned album section. I have just uploaded a new mix to my mixcloud account, a four hour recording from a get together with local Stockholm collectors. Featuring early 1960’s northern soul to 90’s UK street soul, and everything inbetween. Another boring reminder about paypal payments – please make sure to fill in GBP in the second currency field as I don’t want to receive payments in SEK, nor in any other currencies. Paypal sucks and has set the default to try to convert payments to sellers home currency. This is of course an excuse to use their crap currency rates. You might need to use the laptop version, rather than a mobile one to be able to even set the currency the seller receives your payment in. And as always I ask all orders over £150 to be sent as friends & family, or add 4% to cover the fees. Rant over and on with the list. And if you find something just PM to order. And I will get back to you with availability, total including shipping and payment instructions. And hope to see some of you on the forthcoming Stockholm Soul Weekender! BR, Karl Modern Soul & Two Step 45’s Cloudburst – Speciality item – SMS Sound Machine / VG+/G / £300 (Achingly great, and rare Detroit modern soul 45. Dancer side is in the lower side of VG+, and plays ok but not perfect. The slow flip is in G condition due to a bunch of heavy marks.

  9. PM to reserve! Hello and welcome to the K-Mart Records April 2019 sales list! Another long and strong list heaving with heavies, fantastic music in all sections. Some highlights listed below. Modern Soul/2 step 45’s - classics by the likes of Clausel, Target, Gary Bartz, Freedom (“Sunshine”/”Can’t you see”) & Midnight “Keep on walking by”. More obscure but equally great ones like Cliff Holmes “I need ya’ baby”, Timmy Thomas “It’s what they can’t see”, Bobby Finch “Get a hold of yourself”. Two step from Epicenter, Annexus, Bob Poiter and Charles Blackman. Crossover/funk/NS 45’s - Betty Moorer “Speed up”, Aretha Franklin “One step ahead” b/w “I can’t wait until I see my baby’s face”, Vibrettes (“Humpty dimp”, on rarer green label), Dee Irwin & Mamie Galore “I didn’t wanna do it, but I did” and cheaper NS classics by Ad Libs, Barbara Mills, Prince Philip and Gene Chandler x2. The ballad 45 section is short but sweet including clean copies of Sly, Slick & Wicked’s Shaker rarity and Berganees Chicago double header. Two Fellows on Mutt and the overlooked but fantastic Patti Austin “A most unusual boy”. 12 inch section includes China Burton, Tommy McGee x2, Garfield Fleming and Ty Karim & George Griffin. LP section holds a bunch of low to mid priced ones such as Solid Solution (filled with Detroit goodies), Strutt (with “Funky sign” and “Said you didn’t love me”), J.P.

  10. Hello and welcome to the March 2019 sales list! Massive one this time around so look closely for some fantastic music in all sections. PM to reserve! Modern soul & Two step 45’s - some of the highlights being an original copy of 9th Creation “Mellow music”, Hart & Grant "Stuck on a feeling", Robert Ruffin “Cruise”, Les Getrex, the Fruit Cypress double header, Pretenders Carnival double header. Cheaper classics from E.K.G., Patches, C-Brand etc and tricky to find major label greats from Roy Ayers (“Searching”), Denise LaSalle (vinyl promo of “Here I go again” + “I’m so hot”.), Al Johnson & Jean Carn “I’m back for more”. A bunch of cheap and great two steppers and modern dancers. The Sweet/Deep/Group/Ballads 45’s section is shorter but holds great discs by Antwans, Depths of Love, Four Tees and Natural Four. Northern Soul & Xover highlights - Valentines “Breakway” (orig), Linda Jones on Blue Cat, Billy Reece “How tough it was”, a bunch of mid-priced and cheapies and there’s also quite a few King/Federal releases by artists/groups such as Marva Whitney, Junior McCants, De Vons and Shirley Wahls. We have a 12 inch section with some great ones including Garfield Fleming's biggie “Don’t send me away”, Loveman Ronnie Stokes, Caviar, Mario Biondi “This is what you are” (the Italian original) and Stars N’ Bars (The Roger Pontare original, *RHNtD*). The album section is back, highlights includes Bridge on First Experience (essential!!), Twilight “Pains of love” and Cheyenne’s Comin’ on Shadybrook. Plus some great and cheap ones, album section will be back and will be stronger on the April list. Since last list I have put up a new selection of music to my Mixcloud account. An across the board one this time with mostly smooth slow and midtempo sounds, 1960’s through to the 80’s, common and rare. The Mellow Monday Mix. Finally a reminder that all payments £150 and above needs to be sent as gift, alternatively add 4% to cover the paypal fees. And that you select GBP in the second currency field (I don’t want to receive payments in USD not SEK). On with the list!

  14. 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.
