a perfect 1970 PROMO copy – in impossible condition.

Classic style 1970 Reggae from Winston Groovy. The first of two highly sought after “Torpedo” releases for the man and his “Hot Rod All-Stars” backing. Prolific and gifted musicians, ran by the writer of this song “Lambert Briscoe” who’s team come under an umbrella of names. Cimarons, Prophets, Sou Messengers etc etc.. they keep the dance rhythms and the irresistible “Hey, Hey, Heeeeyy! Heeeeyy! Hey Hey” chorus going throughout. A persuasive dance tune.

Flip it over for a spectacular “Lambert Briscoe” guided “Hot Rod” instrumental, written by Charles “red” Matthews. Making this 45 a DJ essential.

Two strong dance tunes and tough to acquire in clean condition.

Expect a little competition for this one.. especially from those Reggae collectors seeking “impossible” conditions.

Condition Report
Two unblemished labels so untouched, the original 48 year old fragments left behind by the 4 prong machine die-cut, are still intact, hanging from the inside. Vinyl was previously unplayed a-side vinyl, flipside vinyl reveals a few sleeve storage surface hairlines under direct light. We doubt we could never be able to offer you a finer copy.

Authentic original press in magnificent near Manship-Mint condition.

50 years ago, when my fledgling ears, were offered this leviathan of Northern Soul in 1969 at the counter of a record shop in Leicester; with the £10 sales pitch “This 45 has been to the Twisted Wheel and back”.
I had only asked if they have any Soul 45’s. Then they played me this growling bombardment of dance-soul. It was so far outside my comprehension of Soul music, I turned it down, and purchased some things I was familiar with.

What a mistake, my ears had yet to grow up and understand the real-deal Northern Soul Sound. Some weeks later I heard “Alexander” at Nottingham’s “Brit Club”. Wow what a difference the insider experience was, when you witness a dancing frenzy take place in front of my naive eyes.

On the Monday I was back to Belvoir Street, Leicester with what was then my life-savings… you guessed it.. it was sold weeks ago. Record-regret haunted me for years, because it took me an age to eventually get a USA press of it, only to find out it was a counterfeit. It was a tough learning curve for this record collecting “pup” in the early 70’s.

Today, I still relive the “Brit” experience every time I hear this timeless classic is dropped… drums, bass guitar then that triumphant “True Love” take to the air. Insistent girls, brazen brass and a rumbling vocal that sweeps you onto your feet..

An all time GREAT!!

Not forgetting the almost as imposing flipside another snarling slab of Northern Soul … two killer tunes in heart-stopping condition.

RARE authentic 1962 press, a killer slab of Detroit Jump Blues rocker; backed up with a Blues screamer .

A fabulous combination of this man’s style. Just never seen for sale, especially in this flawless condition..

Isaiah Ross one of 50’s and 60’s street Blues icons, famous for his prowess with the Harmonica which led him to be christened as “The Boss”. Originally from Mississippi this multi-talented musician was just at home with the guitar, drums or harmonica to compliment his snarling vocal style. A voice comparable to the greats like Slim Harpo, Sonny Boy Williamson, John Lee Hooker etc.

With some notable highly sought after recordings for Sun Records during the 1950s after he started performing as a child. After serving an apprenticeship in the “Delta” regions, he steadily migrated North through Memphis, eventually settling in the Detroit area for work in the car industry. The Motor City is where this recording was made and released, after a couple of “Fprtune” 45’s he moved sideways to highly covert Fortune subsidiary “Hi-Q” label, a notable imprint label for all Detroit vinyl scholars. .

The “value” side, for which it got bootlegged for “Numbers Blues” a potent Jump-Blues Rocker that will interest all rare R&B DJ’s who are allergic to parasitical bootlegs, and would be proud to own a a flawless original. The original lead side “Cannonball” is gritty grinding harmonica dominated Blues stroller, featuring “The Doctor’s” moody guitar rhythms and impassioned vocal.

Top double-sider from Detroit.

Condition Report
Impossible condition! Mint – / Mint – throughout most likely unplayed before we lifted the impressive double soundfile, housed in birth-sleeve and utterly IMMACULATE!

Although today this 45 is considered an all-time Soul Club, Youth Club and school dance classic, in the early part of August 1968 this UK release past by and deleted without so much as a ripple of interest except from the super-alert DJ’s of the Twisted Wheel, King Mojo, Nite Owl, The Brit etc. where it blossomed to become a dancefloor favourite.

Before you today is the seldom seen FIRST PRESS green & white demo of this Northern Soul anthem.

When it rose to “NS cult” status EMI subsequently reissued it in 1970 on the same release number. The 1968 original stock copy of course brandished the “Sold in the U.K. subject to..” text across the centerpiece. The 1970 presses carries the 1968 date on the label but no “Sold in the U.K.” text on the centerpiece. The 1970 DJ copy does not carry the 16.8.68 date on the green & white centerpiece. This 16th. of August 1968 release as a DEMO is a timeless classic in by far it’s rarest form.

Click the soundfile to be catapulted back in time, an emotional journey back to the Youth Club in 1970 where this was a number one tune. Or if you were really “hip” and went to The Twisted Wheel, Mojo, Nite Owl etc. the soundfile will migrate you into a bygone age of 1968 when everything was fresh exciting and lead vocal-tones like Charles Pope already an icon with “Hey Girl Don’t Bother Me” stayed with you forever..

Part of our Northern Soul apprenticeship, offered here is a very desirable rarely seen format.

The extreme talents of writing / producing trio Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein & Richard Gottehrer knew no boundaries. The 3 collectively known as The Strangeloves “Cara-Lin” “I Want Candy” “Night Time” etc. step into the world of BIg City Beat Ballad and write arguably the greatest of the all. Guided by two other greats of the New York 60’s scene, Gerry Granahan & Arnold Goland, five blue-eyed maestros enlisting one of the most potent black voices available on the east coast. The “Wanderers” lead vocal Ray Pollard.

Together this unlikely team crafted one of the greatest Northern Soul strollers of all-time, today considered a quintessential Northern Soul “last record”

Almighty vibes mingle within the controlled droning horns, opening the gates for Ray’s charismatic voice, to do this monumental production justice.

Bring in the percussion, crank up the strings, let those ladies loose on the chorus, ratchet up every verse.. then repeat.. the vibes sending shivers through you Ray takes his vocal to unparalleled heights…

Can you think of a more powerful performance of Soul… no we can’t either..

This is Northern Soul – the other side of Northern Soul – that embraces greatness..
Condition Report
It is unusual for us to auction any record less than visually excellent, this copy is vg+ a-side – flip is vg. Multiple light surface marks, but it plays bright, clean and true. Check out the soundfile, strong and imposing. Just the occasional light background click, lost in the overall power of the production. labels have light storage rub (see images). Most probably an opportunity to own an essential disc at a reasonable price.

Curtis Anderson with the sought-after rare 4:50 “DM 1879 ” mix of his best loved Northern Soul offering.

A Northern Soul classic as the commoner and sadly inferior MD 1932 mix, that eliminates the Hi-Hat drums and driving percussion sound. That makes this DM 1879 session so superior, to it’s more often seen brother.

Two Baltimore, “Jimmy’s” collaborate on this 1979 Maryland indie; Jimmy Lindsay and Jimmy Stewart, join Melvin Miles & Anton Scott on this club winner with the renewed driving intro..

Harmony vocals whispering “How Can I Tell Her” through a wall of “disco” cliche’s until fully 1:16 seconds in Curtis Anderson comes in to elevate the session even higher with his impressive voice..
Rhythmic hand-clapping, wah-wah picking, blasting trumpets, understated background male choruses all mingle into one solid slab of neatly 5 minutes of concrete dance-music. The dramatic instrumental electric drum driven break towards the ending caps off a relentless dance-offering.

The rarest mix, the best mix of a record that has sat at the heart of 70’s Northern Soul for nearly 4 decades without any hint of losing it’s dancefloor impact.

We love this label! A Trojan subsidiary that again underlines the British Jamaican Music the leader in European label-art. A simplistic but stunning combination of two striking colours create a cornea-gfeast for te 45 collector.

Down Town was initially a late 60’s Trojan vehicle for Dandy Livingstone and his music as an artist, writer & producer. but by the early 70’s other artists and producers started to enjoy releases on this coloouful label. This elusive 1973 release was a collaboration between Byron Lee & Derrick Morgan. Two feelgood dance sessions, the topside unashamedly sings about a girl is a high-school sweater, whilst the b-side leaves controversy behind with a solid brass-decorated dancer. Both sides present Derrick Morgan’s distinctive voice in a very Soulful mood.

Again this listing is also about the impossible condition of flawless throughout. 46 years old a looking like new!

At last, having a rare DJ copy in stock allows us to sing the praises of one of the finest British Soul productions ever committed to vinyl.

This 1972 British release was a big play at The Golden Torch. For the “A” side “Honey Bee”. One of quite a few “new releases” spun at The Torch during that open-minded period. It immediately spread through the labyrinth of local Soul nights and before it’s deletion by EMI proved a very popular floor-filler..

In more recent times it is the overlooked flipside that has become far more appreciated. As “Biddu” weaves his magic once again, crafting a killer slab of Northern Soul; an utterly amazingly silky Crossover dancer saturated in class, as Johnny Johnson displays his effortless vocal-range, cradled by swirling strings and considerate horns and chirping sister choruses. It is not to strong, to review this recording as one of the greatest UK Soul productions of all time and it has yet to be spun with any level of consistency that would make the Northern Soul fraternity aware of it’s stand out qualities.

Fortunately these auction pages are the perfect place to raise awareness of extra-special recordings, and the brilliance of unsung geniuses like “Biddu”. At the time in 1972 “Honey Bee” with it’s Motownesque production was perfect Northern Soul dancefloor fuel, drawing heavily from the Four Tops and The Chairmen of The Board capturing the mood completely. Little wonder it became a countrywide Soul Club, Youth Club, mobile Disco monster.

The flipside however was way ahead of it’s time, if this were a USA production and we had just been discovered it, the value would easily break into 4 figures.

Before you is another reason why mediocre rare records have no place on the turntables of Northern Soul events, when quality of this level is only a b-side away.

Although today this 45 is considered an all-time Soul Club, Youth Club and school dance classic, in the early part of August 1968 this UK release past by and deleted without so much as a ripple of interest except from the super-alert DJ’s of the Twisted Wheel, King Mojo, Nite Owl, The Brit etc. where it blossomed to become a dancefloor favourite.

Before you today is the seldom seen FIRST PRESS green & white demo of this Northern Soul anthem.

When it rose to “NS cult” status EMI subsequently reissued it in 1970 on the same release number. The 1968 original stock copy of course brandished the “Sold in the U.K. subject to..” text across the centerpiece. The 1970 presses carries the 1968 date on the label but no “Sold in the U.K.” text on the centerpiece. The 1970 DJ copy does not carry the 16.8.68 date on the green & white centerpiece. This 16th. of August 1968 release as a DEMO is a timeless classic in by far it’s rarest form.

Click the soundfile to be catapulted back in time, an emotional journey back to the Youth Club in 1970 where this was a number one tune. Or if you were really “hip” and went to The Twisted Wheel, Mojo, Nite Owl etc. the soundfile will migrate you into a bygone age of 1968 when everything was fresh exciting and lead vocal-tones like Charles Pope already an icon with “Hey Girl Don’t Bother Me” stayed with you forever..

Part of our Northern Soul apprenticeship, offered here is a very desirable rarely seen format.

At last, having a rare DJ copy in stock allows us to sing the praises of one of the finest British Soul productions ever committed to vinyl.

This 1972 British release was a big play at The Golden Torch. For the “A” side “Honey Bee”. One of quite a few “new releases” spun at The Torch during that open-minded period. It immediately spread through the labyrinth of local Soul nights and before it’s deletion by EMI proved a very popular floor-filler..

In more recent times it is the overlooked flipside that has become far more appreciated. As “Biddu” weaves his magic once again, crafting a killer slab of Northern Soul; an utterly amazingly silky Crossover dancer saturated in class, as Johnny Johnson displays his effortless vocal-range, cradled by swirling strings and considerate horns and chirping sister choruses. It is not to strong, to review this recording as one of the greatest UK Soul productions of all time and it has yet to be spun with any level of consistency that would make the Northern Soul fraternity aware of it’s stand out qualities.

Fortunately these auction pages are the perfect place to raise awareness of extra-special recordings, and the brilliance of unsung geniuses like “Biddu”.

The extreme talents of writing / producing trio Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein & Richard Gottehrer knew no boundaries. The 3 collectively known as The Strangeloves “Cara-Lin” “I Want Candy” “Night Time” etc. step into the world of BIg City Beat Ballad and write arguably the greatest of the all. Guided by two other greats of the New York 60’s scene, Gerry Granahan & Arnold Goland, five blue-eyed maestros enlisting one of the most potent black voices available on the east coast. The “Wanderers” lead vocal Ray Pollard.

Together this unlikely team crafted one of the greatest Northern Soul strollers of all-time, today considered a quintessential Northern Soul “last record”

Almighty vibes mingle within the controlled droning horns, opening the gates for Ray’s charismatic voice, to do this monumental production justice.

Bring in the percussion, crank up the strings, let those ladies loose on the chorus, ratchet up every verse.. then repeat.. the vibes sending shivers through you Ray takes his vocal to unparalleled heights…

Can you think of a more powerful performance of Soul… no we can’t either..

This is Northern Soul – the other side of Northern Soul – that embraces greatness..
Condition Report
It is unusual for us to auction any record less than visually excellent, this copy is vg+ a-side – flip is vg. Multiple light surface marks, but it plays bright, clean and true. Check out the soundfile, strong and imposing. Just the occasional light background click, lost in the overall power of the production. labels have light storage rub (see images). Most probably an opportunity to own an essential disc at a reasonable price.

A rare and highly respected Wigan Casino anthem, presented here in it’s very first incarnation on HOT records; which also released “Put Your Arms Around Me” sung by Little Joe Cook’s daughters “The Sherrys” and coincidentally the very first 45 dropped on the turntables at The Casino, on it’s opening, the early morning Sunday 23th. September 1973.

“Peanuts” Joe Cook uses his daughters, Delphine & Dinell former teammates of Tammi Terrell in the shrill backup chorus, complimenting his energetic falsetto flurries. A zipping string section sets the ideal pace, for the contrast of the sharp lead vocal and the crispness of the Soul-Sister replies. Just add a killer Sax-break, and so classic style Northern Soul takes off, with explosive dancefloor energy that never fails but to throw an incendiary bomb to the dancefloor.

A tune for a proper NS dancer to express themselves to, a record for condition conscious Northern Soul collectors to gt excited about.

FLAWLESS copies of this timeless classic NEVER come to market.

Act decisively, to own a NS treasure in perfect condition

The rarest incarnation of this timeless song!

Classic, classic Chicago creation by Carl Davis’s right hand man Gerald Sims. Originally recorded of course by The Radiants, but later pixck up by so many Soul acts recognizing it as an all time great hook-line. The ideal platform for any aspiring Soul vocal group to spring from.

This version in our experience is the hardest to acquire, from the Abe Epstein machine housed inside the vibrant San Antoni Soul Music movement of the mid 60’s. Relerased on Texas’s most civet “Soul” label, Dynamic records and we can assure you #110 is one of the most challenging numbers to acqyuire,

So get ready for another Abe-enabled vocal-group delight, as Tex-Mex Soul doers Chicago. The raw enthusiasm, those tight male harmonies sailing over Mexican influence horns. The gentle cracking of the leads emotional voice, adds a mountain to this great song.

If you appreciate raw, local, accomplish cover version in their rarest form .. do not pass by.
Condition Report

Before you today is an authentic West Coast September 1961 Promo copy.

NOT the “Daly City Bob” convincing counterfeit, that has over the years fooled a few buyers with it’s attention to detail. The level of accuracy, that bestowed belated acclaim on those top-quality Mariano/Catteneo doppelgangers.
Circa 1976 it was repressed in promo form, to meet the demand of the Belgium Popcorn market. Long, long before any DJ on the British Northern Soul scene thought it suitable for the NS clubs.

But it seems everything “Popcorn” affiliated is sooner or later adopted by the British All-nigther scene. Betty O’Brien is another in a long line of standout 60’s dance tunes to be ferried across the North Sea into the very heart of Northern Soul. At it’s early rise with the Northern Soul circuit, it was sadly too often, that Belgium counterfeit that changed hands for large sums.

Today the NS collector and DJ is so much more aware, we hope.

To own this slab of New York Sister attitude crafted by the trusty hand of Bert Keyes, written by the prolific wife of Bob Johnston and Paul Williams; an authentic ORIGINAL 1961 press is the only way to do it.
Especially as the “counterfeit” is no cheap purchase, a record that commands tidy sums also, notably in green or multi-coloured vinyl. Pretty but not the real-thing!

Here is the real thing, sound quality is crisp and clean, both labels are clean.

Click the soundfile and prepare to be blown away by “Popcorn” as it’s most motivating.

A UK CBS distributed indie that received strong Northern Soul attention, during the early 70’s. Since those formative times, we’ve hardly seen a copy of this disc for sale, I did have it in my collection way back. But to acquire a copy recently, still sat in it’s birth-sleeve, rocketed me back in time when we youngsters would scoured the market stalls for a chance to find a disc like this. A 45 that gives up, the promise the spectacular label made.

A b-side created by Peter and The Wolves front man John Pantry, who certainly had an ear for and upbeat recording. Taking these 4 attractive ladies into the studios, when CBS signed deal with them, after two years touring in Europe. The quartet left their native Indonesia for political reasons. Changing their name from “Flower Girls” (Dara Puspita) to Tikki, Takki, Suzy, Lies; an artist credit you don’t forget in a hurry., nor the spectacular label and sleeve combination leave your mind in hurry, either.

Full blooded girl-group Northern Soul with a difference, one to pique the interest of British 45 complements and girl-group aficionados. Who know all to well, just how elusive this engaging record is.

Seldom seen for sale..

The original A-side “Ba-Da-Da-Dum” is certainly not in the slightest Northern Soul but does feature some quirky “fuzz” guitar and useful “drum” breaks.
Condition Report
Fine clean labels (one minuscule biro stroke flipside label) see images, four prong die-cut center intact, housed in the insanely rare birth sleeve.

Those immortal lyrics from Al Gorgoni & Chip Taylor, master-craftsmen of the “girl” sound and would-be film makers.

“Picture Me In Someone Else’s Arms, Picture Me Making Love To Him” “Are You Sure It’s In Your Heart” “Picture Me Gone!”

This composition has got to stand today, as one of the lyrically greatest NS tunes, ever written for a girl singer.

Part of a movie project “Step Out Of Your Mind” that never got released starring Al Gorgoni, Chip Talor, Eve Sands, Kelly Bishop etc. Sadly “lost” ..
A vivid story emerges of love in danger.. the age-old tale of man confronted with temptation, whilst his girlfriend reminds him of the consequences.
The story is so well told, so well sung and so brilliantly produced. Stunning instrumental breaks, the famous fade off at the end, that suddenly explodes back into action. As Gorgoni & Taylor realist this song is so good, it should not end just yet..

“Picture Me Gone” is right up there along side Susan Barrett’s – What’s It gonna Be, Tobi Legend’s – Time will Pass You By – as an all-time Northern Soul Sister dancer with a compelling story to tell.

Presented here as the desirable White Promo copy in fine clean condition.

Click the soundfile, as if you need to refresh your memory of a top-tune, that is certain to make a telling Northern Soul renaissance, sooner rather than later.

Condition Report
A-side vinyl reveals only a minuscule sleeve contact blemish or two close to Mint minus, flipside vinyl is has a couple of fine blemishes, none affecting anything, a strong clean Ex+. No writing, stickers, tears. Nice copy in correct company sleeve. Looks a “picture”

You could argue all day which was The Artistics best double-sider.. “I’m Gonna Miss You c/w Hope We Have” or maybe “Girl I Need You c/w Glad I Met You”, after all these guys just like their hometown buddies The Impressions can do no wrong,..

They easily rank in the Top 10 most productive male Soul vocal-groups of all time! Their output of essential Northern Soul is quite staggering.. but what would you expect, when this accomplish gathering were mentored by the likes of Carl Davis, Gerald Sims, Sonny Sanders & Barrett Strong, everything was gonna assured stand-out Soul.

This 1965 recording, was undeniably way-ahead of it’s time, both sides giving up seamless Northern Soul vocal-group dancers of the very highest calibre. It was of course a minor R&B hit for them, sitting just outside the top 20 for several weeks, not a super rare 45 maybe.

But what is certainly very scarce, is to find this disc in pristine condition. Serious Okeh label collectors will be nodding when we say they invariably reject any disc with writing on the label. Most will not buy anything below EX + and from our experience locating vg+ copies with defaced labels is not a challenge at all. But to acquire two utterly flawless promo labels, mint vinyl still housed in it’s birth sleeve, is incredibly problematic.

This is a listing for discerning Northern Soul / Okeh collectors who appreciate 45’s in “gold-standard” are near impossible too locate in 2019.

This copy is the finest example we have seen in decades.. of loving both sides of this classic Northern Soul creation from Chicago’s foremost music-makers.

1972 British press so hard to acquire at this level of near perfection.

Rattling steel-drum intro, is joined by subtle horns, before this highly regarded voice sings his “goodwill message” supported by a shrill male vocal-group chorus provided by the Soul Avengers.
Rhythmic guitar picking, sharp keyboard assistance come together for this fully equipped session.

But the main reasoning for this 46 year old sitting before you today, is the very rare condition..

Two immaculate labels, vinyl inspection reveal only a couple of minuscule sleeve contact hairlines. Plays as you can hear, flawless!

We have talked about the fall-out this monumental Northern Soul instrumental ha on me personally a few before. But influential Northern Soul moments, you can never forget, as they did change your life. This 45 jolted me into silence, as our table chattered away, talking amphetamine induced nonsense..

Thar unusual genial intro, instantly caught my ear, so out of sync with the rest of the records I’d heard that day inside Whitchurch All Dayer.. slowly building on ripples of Harp plucking..you just knew something was about to happen as the rhythmic rattle of drumsticks intensified.. then the horn blasted through the calm… unified jaw-drops surrounded me, as we all knew Ian Levine had just dropped a Northern Soul hand-grenade into the crowd.

BRILLIANT!

“WOW what’s this tune?” …and I wasn’t the only one now standing in open-mouthed astonishment.. Ian Levine had announced it with his usual gusto, “The End Of The World” by The Explosions. What a great title; Announcing it as it’s gonna be the biggest, most-wanted sound of that summer 1973…. he wasn’t wrong either..

I do delight in Northern Soul classics with the capacity to take you back to the times, when everything was new to your ears, instantly branded into your brain; we were already making plans to be at the Blackpool Mecca the next week.

back in those Golden days the cover-up tease with it’s weird and wonderful christenings were part of the joy of being part of Northern Soul. You planned your social life around being able to hear & dance to these sounds again as soon as possible.

This promo copy, that has taken me all the way from my vinyl strewn desk, to Whitchurch 1973 is flawless – two perfect labels, play surfaces hardly reveal a blemish, plays perfect..

A listing especially aimed at Northern Soul old-school collectors who want to leap into their virtual time-machine, that records of this calibre give you the starter key to..
