Artist:

JEANETTE WILLIAMS


Title:

Something's Got A Hold On Me


Label:

Back Beat 587 (dj)


Condition: VG++
A total stormer that goes all the way back to the days of the Torch and seems to turn up so much less often than her Casino monster ‘All Of A Sudden’. Never booted or reissued on 45 – surely perfect for a revival therefore.

RONNIE McNEIR


Title:

Sitting In My Class / Isn't She A Pretty Girl


Label:

De-To 2870


Condition: M-
From Doc Kyle’s famed Detroit logo comes this debut disc from Ronnie McNeir (who wasn't quite 16 when this was recorded). It isn't well known, but later, much later, McNeir was briefly a member of the Four Tops when Levi Stubbs fell ill. Autographed sleeve too. Fantastic flip too, with ‘Isn't She A Pretty Girl’. Both on soundbite.

JOHNNY HOWARD


Title:

The Chase Is On


Label:

Bashie 101 (dj)


Condition: M-
Fast and furious re-working of the Artistics song from an unknown, one-off artist (tho’ it may just be Johnny Williams who recorded two 45’s on the same label). Great condition on the storming side, a couple of marks on the flipside ‘I Miss My Lady’.

JERI SHAW


Title:

A Little Less Talk


Label:

Mastersound 01


Condition: VG++
It says something for the rarity of this Los Angeles release that Simon Soussan never found a copy to send to Wigan. For sure at the Casino this would have been a monster spin. Maestro Miles Grayson adds all the touches that make it ‘Northern’.

SAM DEES


Title:

Lonely For You Baby


Label:

SSS International 732


Condition: M-
Sam’s first record recorded at Ed Boutwell’s studios in Birmingham. Alabama in 1966 and famous for that thunderous bassline. It’s amazing that this wasn't picked up by the Northern scene in the seventies as copies were around on the shelves of Dees completists at that time. A total Northern Soul classic now of course.

BIG DON'S REBELLION


Title:

It Was True


Label:

Ethon 101


Condition: VG++
Another one from the eighties that would easily have made it big in the previous decade. A powerhouse production and rarer on the maroon label rather than the yellow label I would say. A small area of light scuffs have downgraded this one from mint condition.

RITCHIE ADAMS


Title:

I Can't Escape From You


Label:

Congress 256 (dj)


Condition: M-
Blue-eyed Ritchie Adams cooked up a perfect mid-sixties storm on this frantic Northern dancer – not bad for a guy who wrote much of the Banana Splits material and was behind the Archies Mind you, he is with Jerry Ragavoy on this one.

Title:

Crying Over You


Label:

Impact 1008


Condition: VG
Yes you saw the minimum bid correctly. Reason? Well to be honest this stone classic has some ‘fuzz’ all the way through it. Check the soundbite. Recorded on superior Technics equipment the track is as it sounds – NOT WORSE in real life – and at a venue it’s probably fine.

SUGAR N' SPICE


Title:

Lucky We / Sweet One


Label:

Lira 777


Condition: VG++
As rare as the Mints on Lira that we auctioned a couple of months ago and the only other release on this Ohio label. Two sides for your money, both written and produced by label owner Vermon Jones and both ‘Soundbitten’ for your delectation.

ARTHUR FREEMAN


Title:

You Got Me Up Tight


Label:

Jumbo 004


Condition: M-
Another Northern gem that has never really had its day on the dancefloor. There were two Arthur Freemans – the ‘Played Out Playgirl’ guy is this one (originally from Florida) despite the Fame music publishing, the ‘Slippin Around’ guy is another singer although it’s difficult to believe. Whatever the truth, this one sure storms along.

BETTY TURNER


Title:

The Winds Kept Laughing


Label:

Crescent 637


Condition: M-
A simply beautiful copy of this lovely, creaking West Coast dancer which has probably been played less than a couple of times (one of which is for the soundbite). Producers ‘G & G’ were Lenny Greene and John Gummoe (in whose San Diego garage studio this was recorded in 1963).

VONCIEL MYERS


Title:

But I Still Love You / It Won't Be Easy


Label:

Gaynote 111


Condition: VG++
Gaynote Records declared themselves to be ‘the Soul Sound’ in Los Angeles circa 1966 and came up with this obscure doublesider. In truth there was only one other release on the label so their ‘soul sound’ hardly took the City of Angels by storm. Nonetheless there are two good sides here so we have provided soundbites for both.

HELEN TROY


Title:

I Think I Love You


Label:

Kapp 446 (dj)


Condition: M-
Little is known about this singer who made 4 or 5 singles, although none with the careering power of this mover. The song is written by The Sierras and as that was a group who occasionally had a female lead it could be that Helen was in the group.

Artist:

JIMMY ELLEDGE


Title:

Sad Town


Label:

Sound-Town 73168


Condition: VG++
Elledge was a country singer who occasionally dipped his toe into black music with some skill. His version of ‘Can’t Stop a Man In Love’ is excellent for instance. And it’s the same with his rarest record offered up here, which overflows with melancholy and pathos over a great production. VG++ is perhaps a little unfair on a disc with only a couple of light marks.

Title:

After Hours


Label:

Counterpoint 2578 (dj)


Condition: M-
And here’s a surprise, a record I've known as a Deep Soul rarity for many years turns out to have an excellent dancer on the other side. I can assure you I rarely found a copy when it was ‘just’ a slowie, in fact it must be at least 25 years since the last one.
