  1. All US originals. Paypal (F&F or add 4%, your choice) or bank transfer. Everything sent Special Delivery, please add £7 for postage in UK or £10 overseas. 7-day full refund for misdescription only – no part-refunds. Vinyl graded according to Soul Source site definitions, please see scans for label condition. AL SCOTT: What Happened To Yesterday (GENUINE) VG++ £3000. Absolutely beautiful copy of this mega collectible. The VG++ grading is a deliberately strict assessment of a record which I believe was uncirculated store stock until I obtained it, and bears only light, isolated marks, very likely sustained during long-term sleeved storage only, otherwise looks basically like new. I’ve only played it a few times (probably 5 or 6) while I’ve had it, so I think I can confidently say it is virtually an unused copy. The labels are crystal-clean with no writing, drill holes, stickers or smudges, the only thing worth mentioning being a section at the bottom of the label where the print roller seems to have come up a moment too early during manufacture, leaving an unprinted segment – something which was there from the beginning and not a mark of wear. Playback is faultless - check the video, taken from the copy for sale, to gauge play condition. One of the most fondly remembered of Richard Searling’s late-Wigan exclusives, and one that has remained stubbornly elusive throughout the forty years or so since then. Generally agreed to be both the first and the rarest incarnation of this title and hence considerably more desirable than the “Mr Soul” variation, there are very few copies of this record anywhere at all, and from what I’ve seen, even fewer, if any, in this state of preservation. Unless you already have a truly extraordinary copy of this, it may well be the best copy you will ever see of this one. Soundclips are recorded on a Project Essential 2 turntable with Ortofon OM5e elliptical cartridge, and no noise reduction has been applied.
  2. Hi Sam, Sorry, Anita Humes has gone. Thanks for your interest and best of luck finding one soon. All the best, Nick
  3. All US originals. Paypal (F&F or add 4%, your choice) or bank transfer. Everything sent Special Delivery, please add £7 for postage in UK or £10 overseas. 7-day full refund for misdescription only – no part-refunds. Vinyl graded according to Soul Source site definitions, please see scans for label condition. ORLONS: Envy (CAMEO) VG++ sm wol £90. A few very light scuffs only, small biro note on both sides. ANITA HUMES: What Did I Do? (ROULETTE) VG+ drill hole £50. Light ring wear on label. THEO-COFF INVASION: Lucky Day (DEARBORN) M- £85. Gorgeous copy of this fab instrumental ROSE St JOHN/WONDERETTES: Fool Don’t Laugh/I Know The Meaning (VEEP W/D) VG++ XXol- £185. Very nearly makes M-, just a few light marks drop the grade to stay on the safe side. JACK MONTGOMERY My Dear Beloved/Do You Believe It (SCEPTER) VG+ 220. Even surface scuffing all over, nothing deep. Light ring wear on label. Nice player, a highly serviceable copy of this perennial monster.
  4. US original. Paypal (F&F or add 4%, your choice) or bank transfer. Everything sent Special Delivery, please add £7 for postage in UK or £10 overseas. 7-day full refund for misdescription only – no part-refunds. Vinyl graded according to Soul Source site definitions, please see scans for label condition. ANDY FISHER: My Heart’s Beating Stronger/Wee Bit Longer (FAT FISH) M- £950. Superb copy of this brilliant and hard-to-find- double-sider from the Stafford era.
  5. All US originals. Paypal (F&F or add 4%, your choice) or bank transfer. Everything sent Special Delivery, please add £7 for postage in UK or £10 overseas. 7-day full refund for misdescription only – no part-refunds. Vinyl graded according to Soul Source site definitions, please see scans for label condition. NELLA DODDS: Honey Boy (WAND) VG++ £320. Superb copy, would be a straightforward M- listing except for two (feelable) marks which you can see on the scan (at about 10 o’clock and 11 o’clock on the pic). Both are small but need to be taken into account when grading, so I’m dropping the grade to VG++. Neither has any effect at all on the sound during playback – check the video to confirm, taken from the copy for sale, to gauge play condition. TIMOTHY WILSON: Hey Girl Do You Love Me (VEEP mispress) M- Xol sol £230. This is a copy of a Four Havens record mispressed so it plays Timothy Wilson’s “Hey Girl…” on one side and the intended Four Havens record on the other. Label has a small sticker and X (conveniently in the same place, so not as obtrusive as they could be) but is otherwise clean; vinyl is pristine, so represents a handy way of getting a bit of a bargain on a truly fantastic Soul 45 DON & JUAN: All That’s Missing Is You (MALA) M- £300. Not seen one of these for quite a while, lovely copy of their most ‘Northern’ dancer. Soundclips are recorded on a Project Essential 2 turntable with Ortofon OM5e elliptical cartridge, and no noise reduction has been applied.

Everything sent Special Delivery, please add £7 for postage in UK or £10 overseas. 7-day full refund for misdescription only – no part-refunds. Vinyl graded according to Soul Source site definitions, please see scans for label condition. BOBBY KLINE: Say Something Nice To Me (MB) VG++ £2250. Labels on the right way around and both in beautiful condition with no writing, stickers, holes, etc. Slight storage warp NAP. Just occasional minor surface marks, very likely sustained during long-term sleeved storage only, otherwise looks basically like new. Lovely player, check the video, taken from the copy for sale, to gauge play condition. Soundclips are recorded on a Project Essential 2 turntable with Ortofon OM5e elliptical cartridge, and no noise reduction has been applied.

  10. It was a (long) while before I realised Gladys Knight's 'Midnight Train To Georgia' was about this. Her man must have had a really shit time in the North to want to go back to Georgia during that period.
  11. Few more I've remembered: Tommy Navarro - Club Of Broken Hearts (De Jac) Richie Mandell - You Got Me (20th Century) Epsilons - Mad At The World (Shrine) Epsilons - It's All Right (HEM) Stewart Ames - King For A Day (J&W) Jock Mitchell - Nomad Woman (Golden Hit) Mello Souls - We Can Make It (Mello) Lakisha Washington - Just My Dreams (Solid Sound) OK, hands up, that last one's not real - found it for 49 cents in a junk shop while I was sleeping last night, then I woke up and it wasn't in my box any more... Still, the other ones are real. Never mind, a lad can dream!

  13. There's always plenty of interest and appreciative comment about this 1980s London club, so I thought I'd point people towards this clip broadcast on 0-1 For London in 1989 covering two sides of the London Rare Soul scene. Some shaky video quality which I can only blame myself for, but I'm pretty sure this footage has never been up on the web before, so I hope you still think it's worth a look. Obviously, modern fans, there's something for you too! Enjoy! Nick
  14. I had one in the 90s which had some kind of discolouration on the label and was decent but not mint. I know it's been suggested from time to time that there is a large-ish stock of uncirculated copies (and maybe there are - or more likely were), but this one had definitely been out and about.
  15. I think that sounds like the magic bullet I was looking for, Mick. Thanks for that, and thanks to all who have helped narrow this down.
