  4. Been discussed, here's a thread
  5. The Shades of Darkness were from Dunkirk, NY, on Lake Erie SW of Buffalo, NY
  6. Regarding the Rare Breed and Ohio Express - The Rare Breed band did record BB&S first, released on the Attack label, which was a national distributed label but did not have the promotional strength of the larger labels. Some months after it was released, the producers (Kasenetz and Katz) wanted to give it another try. The Rare Breed were not interested in promoting it so they went looking for another band to use who would be able to play live, etc. They asked the manager of the Music Explosion, who had just scored a big hit with "Little Bit O' Soul" (produced by K&K) if he knew another band that could take the place of the Rare Breed - so a band named Sir Timothy and the Royals, from the same city (Mansfield, Ohio) were renamed the Ohio Express and the same recording by the Rare Breed was re-released on Cameo with the Ohio Express name. Later, a studio band (again produced by K&K) with Joey Levine as lead singer would cut songs and have them released as the "Ohio Express", while the Ohio Express band would do the live appearances, with band members trying to emulate Levine's vocals.
  7. BUMP - still looking for these
  8. Looking for good playing copies of these Donald Ray and Solid Sound - I Think About Love Appointments - Stepping Closer Sonny and Mary Reed - Look Into My Mind thanks!

El Corols - Chick Chick - great copy, has one scuff that does not affect play, otherwise really clean VG+, check out sound file, $1000 MVPs - Turnin' My Heartbeat Up - rare issue copy with Every Man For Herself on the flip. Unfortunately this copy has a couple serious marks that make loud pops - but it plays through.

  10. {SOLD} Inmates - This is the day / Gypsy Heart - records looks scuffed, say VG- (US grading) to be safe, no heavy scratches or loud pops.

Sound files for both sides here: Pay by Paypal friend/family, $10 postage added to UK/Europe. Must pay within 3 days, thanks.
  11. Have fun! Nice collection of WBEE, not as many for the others, although I recall seeing a bunch of WVONs somewhere, they were a big station.
  12. Can't believe that no one has mentioned this website, 1000s of surveys here. You don't need to know the stations call letters, just pick a city and find the R&B stations
  13. This has been listed in discographies going back to the Stak O Wax books. AFAIK it's never been proved to exist, in some other reference book (the Reg Bartlette Motown one maybe?) it was listed as assigned a number but never pressed. Interesting how these old discographies got these listings for never released 45s. From company logs? Old trade mags? Of course there's always the chance one could surface, like the Jimmy Hart on Blue Rock. However, since Frankie was well known artist on which any record would have got attention, gotta be certain by now that there were none made.
  14. There's events constantly in SF and Oakland. Not sure if you are in SF or 'the bay area' but plenty to do. Silver and Black Soul Club, Alcatraz Soul Club are two more in addition to Sweater Funk. There's a big event the first weekend in June "Break It Loose Bay Area Soul Weekender".
  15. These appear to be the same as the standard versions that came out on real labels. They aren't soul records, they are psych/rock from c. 1969. I think they range from $50 to $100+ for the labelled copies, these would probably go for less.
  16. The Chris Montez version of "Call Me" was a huge hit in the US, 1966. I assume that Eddie Bishop was done in response.
  17. Rentzel and Joey were married. The song title is almost funny considering he exposed himself to a couple young girls, costing him his marriage but not his football career (although he was traded to another team)
  18. Came out on Red Coach but mispressed with a different title. I didn't post this detail, I figured anyone who had the record would know what I wanted.
  19. Donald Ray and Soild Sound - I think about love Appointments - Stepping Closer, Dart or Red Coach good playing copies VG or better...but not paying $900 for a cracked Appointments,
  20. Looking for these Ohio related records Angela Alexander and JD Saddler - Don't Make Me Kill You (Soul Kitchen) Blackjacks - Fascinating Dynamite Man (Jive 5) Doc Peabody - Here Without You (Both Sides) Eddie and Ant Hill Mob - I'm a Number Runner (Soul Kitchen) Original only Family Sound Band - Gotta Git Down (Artists Recording) Imperial Wonders - Mean Ol Miss Treater (Day Wood) Original only Dewey Jeffries - How Do You Change The Old Foundation (E&J) W. Johnson, S. Satchel - I Can't Believe You Are Mine (Dee O) New Year - My Bleeding Wound (360) Reflections - Unborn Man (Flax) Cash waiting PM or email
  21. The hook to "A little bit hurt" reminds me of the "Stronger than Dirt" from this Ajax commercial which predates JC by a few years. This version by Cleveland band Tom King and the Starfires - who became the Outsiders - incorporates the "Stronger than Dirt" with some familiar ealry 60s rock and roll moves.
  22. Shaddows- Together Again - VG- with a little heat damage at the beginning you can hear in the clip. Otherwise plays OK with occasional pop. Last spare I have on this. Pay by PayPal, postage added. $110
