  1. Please email ruralconcourse@yahoo.com to reserve. thanks, George (alphabetical by label) Johnny Ross “Big Bruce / Part II” (Bak) VG++ £120 Breakbeat-led funk with heavy reverb sound FX and a really attractive label design. (Don’t be fooled when googling for this: it’s all about Part II and the other, common pressing is a weak version.) Big Bruce Part II Beverly & Duane “Love / You Belong To Me” (Brown Bomber) VG £50 Soulful midtempo 70s, with uptempo flip. (Two biro stars on “Love” label. That side plays well apart from two pops near the start and a few lighter tics towards the end. “You Belong” plays great. Faint lift NAP) Love You Belong To Me Jeffrey Rolle “Reality of Love” (Candy Store Strawberry Soul) VG++ £400 Obscure and virtually unknown. Dark, funky, rolling, atmospheric - and distributed to no one, it seems, judging by the lack of copies out there. Upfront DJs take note! Reality Of Love Deep Heat “Do It Again / She’s A Junkie (Who’s The Blame)” (Cu-Wu) VG++ £500 One of the greatest soulful funk tracks of the 70s – they have such a beautiful feel going here. Solid funk flip. (Very, very faint ringwear) Do It Again She's A Junkie Shabadoo “Do It (One More Time) / Instrumental Version” (Dore) strong VG++ £70 Lush disco with a great vibe, in two versions (I think the mix on the B side is the one). Do It Do It - Instrumental Lucy Stone “Giving Love Instead Of Gold” (Fire Mountain) VG++ £900 Top 10 modern soul – so lush, so current-sounding. Giving Love Instead Of Gold Nu-Cleus “It’s Real Love / Needing A Woman” (Ffull Strength) VG++ £500 Killer modern/disco for the club, with a really original sound. Stepper flip. It's Real Love Needing A Woman The Myxx “Don’t Ever Leave / Mixed Up” (Mark Custom) M- £650 Early ‘80s soul at its finest – this thing is fantastic. The spacey ballad on the flip is also good, and gets into stepping territory as it goes on. Don't Ever Leave Mixed Up Chocolate Syrup “Who You Tryin To Fool Girl” (MTVH) VG++ £20 Strong 70s ballad. (Slightly off centre but sounds fine to me. The lame funk flip is more off, but I can’t see anyone wanting to listen to it and I also think it’s probably a general pressing problem with this record) Who You Tryin To Fool Girl Jay Baldwin “So Glad I Met You / Son Of Mine” (Ronina) VG £40 Obscure 70s sweet soul with midtempo soul-funk flip. So Glad I Met You Son Of Mine Michael Bell “Can’t Make It Without You” (Saru) strong VG/VG+ £50 Lesser-seen title from the kings of Cleveland, who deliver the usual quality of early ‘70s funky soul we’ve come to expect. (Two small label tears, still looks ok) Can't Make It Without You Gloria Taylor “How Can You Say It / Love Is A Hurtin’ Thing” (Selector Sound) VG+/VG £175 Two of her finest, personally I prefer “How Can” but they’re both phenomenal. How Can You Say It Love Is A Hurtin Thing Freddie Lowe “Decisions” (Sirocco) VG £225 Strong 70s soul, featuring a shortened version and a longer mix on the other side. (A little intro noise that soon clears up & very slight warp NAP) Decisions Decisions - Long Aggression “Tag” (SRI) VG-/G- £25 Underground disco out of DC. (Small hole, plays at 33rpm / “Radio” side plays strong, “Disco” side has intro clicks that clear up after a while / slight warp NAP) Tag Tag - Disco The Page Three “Wait! One Minute Baby / The Love We Had” (Tenacious) VG+ £175 Two dramatic 70s ballads, both of which are fantastic. Wait! One Minute Baby The Love We Had The Black Truth Band “Butter Nut / Part II” (The Black Truth) VG++ £1000 One of the greats – on a par with Kool & the Gang at their best, and with a massive break. Still smashes hard, and can fit well into modern/disco sets. (Slight warp NAP) Butter Nut - Part II Monica Higgins “It’s The Real Thing” (United Artists) demo - strong VG++ £65 Mono / stereo demo of this fine 70s soul spin. (Clean copy in sharp company sleeve) It's The Real Thing
  2. To order please email ruralconcourse@yahoo.com. thanks, George New World “We’re Gonna Make It” (Polydor) strong VG++ £500 A few hairlines away from M- and in company sleeve http://concourserecords.co.uk/concourse/server/php/files/newworld_weregonna.mp3 Jeffrey Rolle “Reality of Love” (Candy Store Strawberry Soul) VG++ £500 Virtually unknown islands obscurity. Dark, funky, rolling, atmospheric - and distributed to no one, it seems, judging by the lack of copies out there. Upfront DJs take note! http://concourserecords.co.uk/concourse/server/php/files/jeffreyrolle.mp3 Jimmy Tig & the Tig Family “Everybody’s Laffing / Brainstorm” (Tuska) VG+ £200 Powerful midtempo crossover side from Mr Tig. (Tiny wol on A side, some light ringwear and very small warp) http://concourserecords.co.uk/concourse/server/php/files/jimmytig_laffing.mp3 Tommy McGee “Now That I Have You / Stay With Me” (TMG) demo VG++ £225 This is a promo, which I’ve never seen before. (The lighter-coloured promo labels appear to have been stuck onto a regular copy by the innovative minds at DT Distribution in Detroit – looks cool and doesn’t affect anything) http://concourserecords.co.uk/concourse/server/php/files/tommymcgee_nowthat.mp3 http://concourserecords.co.uk/concourse/server/php/files/tommymcgee_stay.mp3 Michael Bell “Can’t Make It Without You” (Saru) strong VG/VG+ £75 Quality early ‘70s funky soul. (Two small label tears, still looks ok) http://concourserecords.co.uk/concourse/server/php/files/michaelbell_cantmake.mp3 Exsaveyons “Somewhere / I Don’t Love You No More” (Smoke) VG+ £75 Strong harmony beat ballad, northern flip. http://concourserecords.co.uk/concourse/server/php/files/exsaveyons_somewhere.mp3 http://concourserecords.co.uk/concourse/server/php/files/exsaveyons_idont.mp3

  4. To order, please email ruralconcourse@yahoo.com Grading: M- / VG++ / VG+ / VG / VG- / G (US Goldmine scale, so VG++ = EX in UK Record Collector terms). Postal prices are £3 UK recorded / £7.50 UK special delivery / £5 Europe / £6 rest of the world / £11 tracked & signed service outside the UK. thanks, George Lee Fields “We Fought For Survival” (Festival) VG- £500 Hard-as-nails funk behemoth. Arguably his rarest and best. Sounds like Showbiz and Lord Finesse if they had been making records in 1969. (Plays strong / wol / light ringwear / slight “swoosh” on intro, check clip) We Fought For Survival Shirley Johnson “Too Big To Cry / Inst.” (LaShawn) strong VG £900 Rarity alert! Huge northern spin, and a recent cover up for the top few DJs on the all-nighter circuit. A copy sold on one of Manship’s auctions for over £1300 a while back in similar condition. (Dish not affecting play / some ringwear on instrumental side) Too Big To Cry Carl Hall "Mean It Baby / You Don't Know Nothing About Love" (Loma) G+/VG £25 Classic northern with deep flip. (Northern side is compromised by large scratch, plays surprisingly well though, please check clip before ordering. Ballad side is is strong VG to VG+ and labels are clean.) Mean It Baby You Don't Know Great Pride “She’s A Lady” (MGM white demo) VG++ £40 Opens with a drum break and goes into awesome downtempo reverbed-out funky soul with hip-hop appeal. Not terribly easy to find. (Nice clean copy, mono/stereo / two tiny, discreet red spots on mono side) She's A Lady Lawrence Carroll’s Peoples Band “One Hundred Years From Now” (Raina) VG+ £75 Moody instrumental funk with flavour. One Hundred Years From Now Natural Love “Goodbye My Love” (RSP) VG++ £25 Late 70s-sounding harmony ballad. (Looks clean but a slightly noisy pressing) Goodbye My Love The Book Of Life “I Don’t Know You / Love Will Rise” (Sonstar) VG £25 Lovely modern dancer from Michael Orr. Plays well, clean labels. (Sounds good overall with click just before music starts, ballad flip is more like VG-) I Don't Know You Love Will Rise Bardo Martinez “Bad Education / Inst.” (Timmion) M- / M- £6 Possibly the best new release of the year to date – dancefloor fire with a message that comes highly recommended. (With picture sleeve and obi strip) Bad Education Mugo “Organize / Space Travel” (United World) solid VG £40 Powerful ‘70s breakbeat funk from DC. (Very small warp not affecting play) Organize Space Travel
  5. Grading: M- / VG++ / VG+ / VG / VG- / G (US Goldmine scale, so VG++ = EX in UK Record Collector terms). Postal prices are £3 UK recorded / £7.50 UK special delivery / £5 Europe / £6 rest of the world / £11 tracked & signed service outside the UK. thanks, George Betty Wright “Circle Of Heartbreaks” (Alston) VG+ £25 One of her best – dark, swirling midtempo crossover. (Drill hole and surface marks not affecting play.) http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/bettywright_circle.mp3 Sleepy King “Lost Man” (Awake) VG+ £25 Solid funky soul from New York. (Some sticker residue.) http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/sleepyking_lost.mp3 The Traditions “My Life With You” (Bar Clay) VG++ £100 Northern oldie. (Slight dish not affecting play.) http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/traditions_mylife.mp3 Jimmy Lomax & the Vows “Come On Home” (Cab) VG++ £60 Massive breakbeat leads into big-voiced storming northern. http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/jimmylomax_come.mp3 World’s Funkiest Band “When You’re Alone” (California Gold) VG++ £20 Recommended crossover. http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/worldsfunkiest.mp3 Frenchy & His All Stars “Rock-A-Cha” (Cap City) VG+ £25 Latin-style soul from DC. (A little faint ringwear.) http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/frenchy_rock.mp3 Ronnie Sawyer & Oscar Cobb III & the Soul Men “Take My World / Love Desire” (Delta) VG+ £30 Unusual, atmospheric dancer with a jazzy, almost funky feel, and an uptempo northern flip. http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/ronniesawyer_take.mp3 http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/ronniesawyer_love.mp3 The Precisions “What I Want / Why Girl” (Drew) VG++ £30 Hard not to like this. (Darker blue label variation pressed on vinyl. “Why Girl” has a couple of small marks.) http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/precisions_what.mp3 http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/precisions_whygirl.mp3 Darrow Fletcher “The Pain Gets A Little Deeper” (Groovy) strong VG+ £30 Classic northern with solid production. http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/darrowfletcher_pain.mp3 King George & the Timps “I’m Thru Losin’ You” (Midtown) VG++ £75 Relentless 100mph northern from LA. http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/kinggeorge_thru.mp3 The Captions “Hit It / Don’t Take Your Arms Away From Me” (Millage) VG £40 Storming uptempo with nice ballad flip. (“Hit It” plays well. Three tiny tears at edge of label, not really noticeable. Some noise on “Don’t Take...” side.) http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/captions_hitit.mp3 http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/captions_donttake.mp3 Sonny Daye “When Are You Coming Home” (Power) VG++ £25 Frank Wilson-produced uptempo 60s. http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/sonnydaye.mp3 The Rivals “She’s Mine / Make Your Mind Up” (Puff) VG++ £50 Two raucous sides, nice copy. http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/rivals_shesmine.mp3 http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/rivals_make.mp3 Soul Motion “Reach Out / My Guy” (S.M.P. / Wessound) strong VG £100 Obscure cover versions from Cleveland, Ohio. (Light surface marks only, plays great as you can hear. Faint ringwear & very light wear, and one side is signed – labels look fine though.) http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/soulmotion_reachout.mp3 http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/soulmotion_myguy.mp3
  6. Please email ruralconcourse@yahoo.com to reserve. thanks, George Donn Almingo “Fighting For My Baby” (Black Beauty) VG- £125 Funky 60s soul from Chicago that seems to be a tough one on the label. (Has four stars stuck onto each side, which seems to be how this comes. Although I can’t see the old-time style ballad “Pretty Black Girl” appealing to many people, it’s is in worse shape with lots of tics.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/donnalmingo.mp3 Lee Williams & the Cymbals “Til You Come Back To Me / Love Is Breakin’ Out” (Carnival) VG++ £40 Midtempo 60s ballad with uptempo flip, both strong. Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuplo…/leewilliams_til.mp3 #2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicupl…/leewilliams_love.mp3 Bro. James Elam “God Is Standing By / Send Me I’ll Go” (Dessa) VG- £20 Obscure northern-style gospel soul from Virginia. Solid flip, which is more of a traditional gospel ballad. (Plays great for grade.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicupl…/brojameselam_god.mp3 #2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicup…/brojameselam_send.mp3 Mickey & Ernie “Baby I’m In Love” (Hot Line Music Journal) VG+ £50 Feel-good uptempo soul for the dancefloor. (Note – the flip “Soul’in (Till The Sun Rise)” has a large scuff and does not play.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musi…/mickeyernie_iminlove.mp3 Infatuations “Who Is To Blame / Keep Your Body Moving” (Poormans) VG+ £135 This jumps out of the gate like a track from Camp Lo’s first LP, before dropping into 70s group nirvana-state. The flip is a tight modern-boogie-funk dancefloor workout, which will obviously be the side for many. (Plays great both sides, minor surface marks only.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicupl…/infatuations_who.mp3 #2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicup…/infatuations_keep.mp3 Clifton Dyson “I’m Giving Up” (QS) VG+ £25 Classic modern soul dancer. (Light scuffs not affecting play, sounds great.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/mus…/cliftondyson_imgiving.mp3 George Smallwood “You Know I Love You” (Smallwood) VG £25 Lush soulful boogie from the keyboard maestro. Plays pretty well. Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/m…/georgesmallwood_youknow.mp3 Bobby Hinton “Girl Will You Marry Me” (Tomi) VG++ £150 Heavy ballad-with-a-beat from leftfield that ticks all the boxes – set in minor key with rambling flute, weird ghostly background vocals, obsessive lyrics, and a tumbledown presence – everything’s well in order here for the hardline collectors of this stuff. (Nice clean copy.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicupl…/bobbyhinton_girl.mp3

The Vibrations were his first group as a teenager. Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/raymunnings_you.mp3 The Gospel All-Stars “Lonely Journey” (Fami) M- £200 Really obscure Chicago release that should appeal to funk and crossover fans.

The flip is a nice version of the song done later by Lee Moses. (Minor label wear) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/fabulousdenos_once.mp3 #2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/fabulousdenos_badgirl.mp3 Billy Jones & Solat “You’re Gonna Miss Me / I’ll Be Around” (Poker) VG+ £75 Banging 70s dancer, with a sweet harmony flip that I think has been overlooked. Euro picture sleeve-only release. (Sleeve is presentable VG). Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/billyjones_youregonna.mp3 #2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/billyjones_illbe.mp3 Gail Williams “A Message From My Heart” (Rialto) M- £40 Floaty 70s sweet soul / midtempo winner with crisp drums.

The flip is also solid. (Looks clean / close to M-) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/mysticfive_weet.mp3 #2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/mysticfive_youwere.mp3 Ruby Andrews “Just Loving You” (Zodiac) VG/VG- £70 Classic northern winner.

  9. Please inquire to ruralconcourse@yahoo.com. Thanks, George Father’s Children “Intellect / Linda” (Arrest) strong VG+/VG £150 This sophisticated ‘70s funk / modern release from DC has great lyrics, sounds strong in a club thanks to first-rate production, and doesn’t surface terribly often. The flip is a gorgeous sweet ballad (a few tics on that side hence VG grade, but still plays ok). Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/fatherschildren_intellect.mp3#2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/fatherschildren_linda.mp3M.A.S.O. "Poon-Tang-Thump / Part 2" (Bandit) strong VG £125 Not many known copies of this unique breakbeat funk killer. Part 2 is the side, with a b-boy break leading into a penetrating eastern horn line & bass drop. Rare!! Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/maso_pt2.mp3Part 1: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/maso_pt1.mp3Heem & the Music Monsters “Wake Up People / Piece Of The Rock” (Blood Leaf) strong VG+ £600 Thumping modern soul monster with hard funky drums. It also has a good flip, and one of the best label designs of all time. (The grade is VG+ because of some light surface marks, but both sides play great.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/heem_wake.mp3#2: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/heem_piece.mp3Frosted “Sally Feel Good” (Charisma) VG++ £200 Obscure, soulful modern killer from Detroit. Doesn’t show up much. Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/frosted_sallyfeelgood.mp3 Shirley Johnson “One Foot In Paradise / Have A Little Faith” (Fran-Son) VG-/G+ £75 This is an extremely rare Virginia release that hardly ever turns up. The hard funky soul side will be the main attraction for most, although “Have A Little Faith” is a fantastic deep ballad. Her rarest and arguably best record. “One Foot In Paradise” sounds ok, and although the wear is definitely more apparent on the ballad it’s still listenable. Some label wear. Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/shirleyjohnson_onefoot.mp3Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/shirleyjohnson_faith.mp3Norfolk “You Are My Doll Baby” (Midnight Love) VG++ £60 Excellent ‘80s dancer, unsurprisingly from Norfolk VA. )Nice clean copy, with faintly stained label.)

VG++ £125 Obscure funky soul with modern appeal - seems to be pretty much an unknown. Definitely one that upfront DJs and collectors should consider. (Virtually M- with faint dish not affecting play.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/crystalpistol_sflns.mp3#2: The Six Degree South “Loving You Is Too Far Out” (Six Degree South) VG- £400 Everything on this record is incredibly powerful - a devastating example of early 70s funk. I’ve witnessed clubs get utterly crushed by this one. (Plays ok despite many small marks - surface noise is only really noticeable in the intro. Label has some ringwear and is signed by the band.) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/6degreesouth_pt1.mp3 Smokey 007 & The Exciters “We’ve Got The Same Kind Of Thing Going On” (Sonesta) M- £200 Hot version of the Syl Johnson song, perfect for the current soul scene. (Nice M- copy - ballad flip is VG+ to VG++) Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/smokey007_same.mp3 Sugar “Someone To Be Mine” (Sugar) VG++ £400 One for the upfront DJs here - totally obscure funky soul from Mississippi.

Listen: http://concourserecords.co.uk/musicuploads/jimmysoulclark_iblew.mp3 Daybreak “I Need Love / Everything Man” (PAP) VG++ offers Massive modern anthem. A definite original copy.
