  1. Thanks for the kind words! Just to follow-up on some of the conversation, The honest truth is that the sales at Juno were not per our plan and kind of have us scrambling. No drama, just a miscommunication. I'm unsure if they have more stock that they'll be selling after our official release date or if they sold out the other day. Regardless though we won't be able to restock them. Our promo copies are a limited run and come with a press sheet that includes a short group bio, info about the label, social media links etc. We've done a very small run-size of the label variation and the lions share are sent out for free to Canadian independent radio stations, influential bloggers, and DJs ahead of the official release date. The balance we sell at a premium price ($20 CAD) to try and offset the cost of the free ones. Obviously we don't need to do a label variant to send a record to a blogger, but we're all pretty caught up in collecting soul 45s ourselves and like to pay homage to form. We do intend to release an LP compilation of our 45s once we've got a few more records to fill it, is that interesting to you? Would you prefer to see full-lengths from individual groups?
  2. Hey everyone, We thought we'd pop in and let you know about our second release due out in a couple of weeks. The group is called Broken Hearts Inc. and features members from the cities Edmonton and Calgary in Alberta Canada. The A side Please Don't Walk Away is atmospheric sweet soul with plaintive lyrics dripping with regret and pain while the flip Heartache (Is All You Get) contrasts the other with a bright uptempo arrangement that belies themes of hurt and cold detachment. Pre-sales go live in about 1.5 hours on www.kimberliterecords.com and orders will ship out on or before August first. We hope you like it! https://kimberliterecords.com/

  4. Hi Russell, Thanks for the interest! This record will be on Juno in limited quantity. I totally hear you on the shipping piece too, Canada is one of those large geography / low population density spots that charges dearly for shipping, it's definitely a disadvantage.
  5. Hi all, My friends and I have started a new label called Kimberlite Records in Edmonton Canada and we’re about to release our first record featuring a local group called The Estimations. The Estimations are heavily influenced by the “big city” soul sound and their first release features an up-tempo side with latin percussion b/w a Sam Cooke influenced ballad. This has been a really rewarding project for all involved and we’re currently going into production on our next record which will have a funky crossover feel b/w a sweet soul track. If you’re curious please check us out at www.kimberliterecords.com, Kimberlite Records on Facebook, or @kimberliterecords on Instagram. Cheers, Jeff

  9. Hi guys, I'm cleaning out a box of unorganized mess, and I've got this unlabeled 45 that's stumped me. Thanks for the help! Matrix # LS1131-2 Flip has a teen R&B feel, might be called "Drip Drop" or "Tears Are Falling" Matrix on flip is LS1132

    The B side is mid-tempo quite bluesy and nice, any idea if it's worth anything?
