  4. PM to ask any questions or reserve. Dean Parrish – Bricks, broken bottles and sticks – Musicor 1099 £120 (Stunning looking stock copy of this collectable oldie, but whilst it plays through mint minus and looks very clean with a deep lustre it has a hairline pressure crack from the lead in on the run out to a cm from the run in. It’s very tight and plays through superbly. Barely visible on the scan from the R in Musicor to halfway between 1 to 2 o’clock, just needs to be handled with care, but don't they all. Sound File on request) PayPal as friends or add 4% please, bank transfer on request. Postage: Special Delivery included. Overseas on Request. Cheers, Lee
  5. Here’s a rare one up for offers….. Please message any questions or offers, I will close on Monday 13 February 2017, at 8pm, but it’s fair to say I may accept an offer I can’t refuse in between! Sandi & Matues – The World – Matues 100 DJ Ex+ Very, very rare sister soul/funk, brilliantly crafted subtle lead vocal and edgy backing girl, bit of a red riding hood versus big bad wolf thing going on with catchy jazz funk rollercoaster ride blowin' behind, superb, and so punchy its gonna knock the stuffing out of those dancers that try to keep up! I grade this rarity conservatively, which for a long while only resided with Keb Darge. Only 4 show up on Popsike, 3 DJ copies and 1 stock. Graded Ex+, plays beautifully, no writing on label, just very feint ring wear. The only thing I need to add is this small private Florida press has a tight centre so a selection of spindles may be required! Minimum offer £2500 for this stunner. Green labels, mmm….. just something about them and not enough around! Short sound clip here: Sandi & Matues.mp3 PayPal by gift or add 4% please, bank transfer on request. Cheers, Lee

I remember having to work hard to sell a demo 10 years ago, how times have changed with the demo flying out for 275-300. So what for a rare as hen’s teeth black stock copy, virtually unheard of? Don’t worry about the label scans, they show up all the white bits under intense light, to the naked eye the labels are gorgeous and it plays smooth as silk. Rex Garvin & Mighty Cravers – You don’t need no help – WSJ 103 Ex+ £150 SOLD (From what I can work out this was played by Mr Searling at Wigan, remained hard to find in original Bell Sound stamped ever since, doesn’t often come to the market place and when it does, not in such great condition, marked down from M- due to a couple of very minor lines, but plays M-) PayPal as friends or add 4% please Postage: £2.50 - 1st Class Signed For £7.25 - Special Delivery (My preferred option, fully insured for 45’s over £50 unless you take responsibility?)

  10. Sandi & Matues - The world - Matues I know the funky edged gem has be pressed on the Jazzman label but does anyone know if there is a lookalike green label release of the original? Cheers, Lee.
  11. A quartet of vinyl supplements to boost the old soul energy, 1 up for offers and 3 for set sale, As ever I’m happy to send sound files, Please message any questions, reservations or offers, Eddie will close Thursday 26 January at 8pm, but it’s fair to say I may accept an offer I can’t refuse in between! Eddie Campbell – Contagious love – Artco 103 M- OFFERS (Fabulous mid-tempo on this undeniably rare label out of the Cactus State. Eddie, the other half of Ernie oozes vocal mastery over a pulsating arrangement laced with killer horns. Ernie Johnson, the Traditions are impossible to find and even Dyke and Blazers shows rarely. Beautiful copy with only “A” on top side label. Min Offer £1250) Little Eddie Taylor – I had a good time – Peacock 1949 DJ M- £650 (Effortless Northern dancer embraces slick R&B, and the vocals are made even better by the fact he was a guitarist. Hard to find in top end condition and only notable blemishes are light wear on the label and “DJ not for Sale” blanked out by marker pen, otherwise a spotless player). Cold Four – Love and care – Drells 889 M- £200 HOLD (Archie Bell’s band the Drells own label, and another compelling example of the depth of Texan Soul that's still out there to to be plucked from obscurity. This may sit in the shadow of the rarer than rare “Sugar Bear” release on the same label, but this is brilliantly crafted crossover and one not to be missed, as it isn't as common as thought!) Fantastic Four – (I‘m gonna) Live up to what she thinks – Ric-Tic 119 WD Ex+ £120 HOLD (Hall of fame Detroit outfit that just couldn’t stop knocking out stunning tunes, this Ric-Tic DEMO is surely one for the completest and DJ’s alike.

  12. Just 2 for today, a couple of special ones though, offered up as usual due to sourcing a higher priority want. Graded conservatively, and I will be dismayed if they don’t sell for their condition alone. I have provided scans and sound files for these. Any questions or to reserve please PM. CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION Chandlers – Your love makes me lonely – Col-Soul 1152 M- £600 (Needs no introduction, simply CLASS. When I picked this up in Dec off Mr Dennison I thought it was the keeper, but the appearance of a completely unexpected long term want leads to a quick exit under my last in first out rule. I’ve had a couple, and would expect to land one again, but not in such lovely condition, it’s pristine label and vinyl, only a feint edge lift that does not affect play in any way. Defines clean as a whistle) Chandlers - Your love makes me lonely.mp3 Little Eddie Taylor – I had a good time – Peacock 1949 DJ M- £650 (Might I remind you this is a top quality Northern R&B dancer built on an effortless yet smouldering vocal with petite girly backing. Another difficult 45 to find, normally comes beaten up too. Whilst there is some mild wear on the top label and “DJ Not for Sale” has been blacked out, the vinyl is immaculate and plays near mint, can’t be many like that?) Little Eddie Taylor - I had a good time.mp3 PayPal as friends or add 4% please Postage: £8.25 - Special Delivery up to 1000 Overseas on Request Cheers, Lee
  13. Completely missed this, absolutely shocked to hear Steve has gone. I thought his recent sales where to pay for an all time biggie, it appears he may have had another motive. An acquaintance for over 20 years of buying and selling between one another, in the early days when everyone picked up a phone rather than PM to crack a deal he was an absolute joy to talk to, knowledgeable, honest and funny, what a loss this is. Thinking of Steve's family, God bless you. Lee
  14. Here’s a mix of nice affordables to warm up a winters day, As ever, sound files available on request, PM to ask any questions or reserve.

  15. Here’s a handful to get my new year rolling. Thought long and hard about what I might need to let go to keep the wheel churning, so here goes... As ever, sound files available on request, PM to ask any questions or reserve. Grey Imprint – Do you get the message – Clear Hill 102 M- £2000 SOLD (Monster Northern with a funk edge built on great lyrics. Purchased in Nov 16 from a top UK DJ, only to pull a bigger want in the same week, one or the other has to go? so here it is. Looks and plays like a dream with the mildest edge lift on rotation, DNAP. Not messing with offers, what I paid is what I set the sale for) Rotations – (Put a dime) on D-9 – Frantic 200 Vg++ £700 dh HOLD (Fabulous Philly dancer, graded to accommodate a scuff on the vinyl, which plays through with 2-3 light pops in the early part of track. With this in mind I have graded conservatively. I saw a Vg++ copy from Germany went through Ebay last week at £1,070 and reading his description I would guess this is about the same condition) Majestics – (I love her so much) it hurts me – Linda 121 Ex £450 HOLD (Latin edged dancer, full of spectacular horns and high adrenaline vocals. Yellow demos priced all over at £400-500, this is the PLUM stock copy and much harder to source) Naturals – Don’t just stand there – Path 5563 M- £300 (May not be well known as this Rare Philly dancer seems to be quite obscure, Xol) Little Eddie Taylor – I had a good time – Peacock 1949 DJ M- £650 (Effortless Northern meets slick R&B, made even better by the fact he was a guitarist. Hard to find in top end condition and only notable blemishes are light wear on the label and “DJ not for Sale” blanked out by marker) Billie Kennedy – Sweet things – Thelma 109 WD M- £400 HOLD (The rarest format, a white demo with Billie printed, not Billy, that said the “IE” has been written over by a penned “Y” and there are 2 A’s on top label. “Groovy generation” on the flip of this household Detroit release of course. Condition, condition, condition) PayPal as friends or add 4% please Postage: £7.25 - Special Delivery up to 500 £8.25 - Special Delivery up to 1000 Overseas on Request Cheers, Lee
