  1. Anyone got a spare of this? Trying to fill a couple of gaps. Thanks in advance. Ian D
  2. One of my Record Store Day releases from earlier this year. I never expected it to end up on Prime Time TV though. Ian D
  3. I've just listed hundreds of multi-artist comps of which there's a stack of female 60s compilations if you wanna take a peak..... https://www.discogs.com/seller/Mastercuts/profile?genre=Funk+%2F+Soul&format=CD&format_desc=Compilation Ian D
  4. First glimpse of the Darrell Banks Voc/Inst after 53 years.........
  5. Already huge demand. I don't know anyone who wouldn't want it. It's lucky it's even coming out since the copyright owner lost the isolated instrumental in an office move a couple of years back. Good job I keep all the masters I'm ever sent so at least I managed to retrieve it from a 2012 archive! Ian D
  6. It's because the licensing is getting next to impossible John. I would say 75% of the stuff in the major's vaults is unavailable these days. One company has a current block on ANY U.S. repertoire, another company won't licence anything unless they can access the original contracts (most of which are either lost or too expensive to locate or impossible to find in the archives) and there is a general logjam in most licensing areas which no longer have enough resources to meet demand. They're only interested in streaming now. Very sad. Ian D

These two boxes went through at least 10 drafts apiece with at least 50% of the original requests denied for 'contractual' reasons. It's getting harder and harder to clear stuff through the various companies, especially when the original contracts have disappeared! Ian D
  8. Truth be told I never actually heard this record until last year. Just lately I've been going for very individual female vocals with a sassy approach and I stumbled into this on You Tube and THEN found out she was the black lady in Star Trek who reputedly did the first-ever inter-racial kiss on mainstream TV with William Shatner. Which in itself was interesting. We tried to do a pic sleeve using that image but that is one of the most iconic images ever and it's guarded very fiercely. But vocally I think she's very distinctive. She did lead vocal stints with Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton prior to her acting career. I like ballsy records and I like ballsy women and she hits on both counts for me. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nichelle_Nichols Ian D
  9. Wow. Really? To each their own. I like both sides. Proper ballsy. She's a great singer. Started with Duke Ellington but got side-tracked with 'Star Trek' which probably paid better.
  10. Yep. Sharon Ridley's a beauty for sure. I haven't got to the Ralph Graham yet....... Ian D
  11. Complete list here:- https://recordstoreday.co.uk/releases/rsd-2019?fbclid=IwAR10kBeXzPbVfahXbeyZ5XC7ZdGbIlwHHxAJcnGk4aXv9ypkjjAx7pVtscQ In case anyone didn't notice, there's the instrumental of "Open The Door To Your Heart" - Darrell Banks available for the first time ever! Has to be heard to be believed! Not a bad year this year methinks....... Ian D
  12. Proper 100% Northern Soul. From Nichelle Nichols from Star Trek. Both sides! I've never seen a copy in the flesh. I think the Trekkies must've swooped 'em up. I'm pretty sure it's super-rare. Fantastic infectious vintage Northern Soul. Available this coming Record Store Day for the first time since 1967. Don't sleep on it. You have been forewarned. X
  13. I wonder why they were called the I.B. Special? Makes me wonder if they were adopting a pseudonym for contractual reasons.... Ian D
