INTERNATIONAL G.T.O.'s


Title:

I Love My Baby


Label:

Rojac 1007 (dj)


Condition: M-
Such a dancefloor packer at Wigan and Cleethorpes in 1975. This is the same group as the Master Four on Tayster. Bellsound stamped promo in very nice condition. Many folks have forgotten that in addition to the styrene boot this was counterfeited without a bellsound stamp and the infamous ‘PB’ in the dead wax. In itself this is a rarity, but the original is most certainly very scarce now.

THE FLIRTATIONS


Title:

Stronger Than Her Love


Label:

Festival 705 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Famously this is the Gypsies group from Old Town with the second of their two singles under a new name and before their move to the UK, where there first job was as backing singers on a Tom Jones tour. They have a good body of work but nothing finer than this one. Would have been spun alongside ITEM-A back in the day. Rarer multicoloured vinyl promo.

21st CENTURY


Title:

Shadow Of A Memory


Label:

Noel 1


Condition: VG++
Two great sides (we've also recorded ‘Coming Right Back’ to confirm that statement) on the original and first label before 20th Century. Basically this group were the Pentagons on Sutter and, for one release, the Themes on Minit Records. ‘Shadow’ is a tremendous version, probably the original, of the Minnie Jones song. Not a perfect copy, please check the soundbite!

JOHNNY CASWELL


Title:

You Don't Love Me Anymore


Label:

Decca 32017 (dj)


Condition: VG++
One of the finest blue-eyed stompers ever spun by the scene, with adrenalin and verve in every bar and chord. Producers Madara and White had hit big with Len Barry so why they couldn't make this one stick is anyone’s guess. Caswell had a minor hit in ’63 with ‘At The Shore’ which was kind of an answer to ‘At The Hop’. His one attempt at a soul sound three years later did not cement his fortunes and he left Decca with an I.O.U. (check the flipside for this remarkably clever pun).

PAT & THE NEUROTICS


Title:

I Like The Way You Do Your Thing


Label:

Crown Ltd. 113


Condition: M-
Down to Birmingham Alabama for this rarity. Pat is one Pat Peterman who had a release on the 123 label where she re-cut the track in a slightly slower manner and with a different title, ‘Love The Way You Do Your Thing’. Pat was the sister-in-law of the writer/producer Daniel Peterman and the Neurotics backing band is rumoured to have featured Sam Dees (although if this is the case he didn't sing).

IVORYS


Title:

Please Stay


Label:

Despenza 12266


Condition: VG++
First spun at Cleethorpes and, to be honest, not instantly acknowledged as the classic it is today. This is the first label, from Chicago, before the Wand release (where the spelling of the group’s name was changed to a more grammatical ‘Ivories’) rare as that one is, it’s still a reissue – so grab yourself the true original.

FREDDIE BUTLER


Title:

Save Your Love For Me


Label:

Wheelsville 10001


Condition: VG++
Easily the rarest record on the famed Detroit label and for many years a ‘missin’ number in the listings. Butler actually hailed from Arkansas and despite recording on a number of occasions in Detroit including some Motown sessions, he was never more than a peripheral figure in the Motor City. As late as 1993 he was still making music. Most of his records, virtually all quite rare, now receive acclaim amongst collectors – none more so than this one.

LAS VEGAS CONNECTION


Title:

Running Back To You


Label:

Hep' Me 169


Condition: VG++
Excellent seventies dancer we rarely find, although most records on this New Orleans label are common, this one is definitely tricky to locate. Most records tend towards Southern soul/blues as well but this great mover proves that they could turn out Modern Soul with the best of them.

LEE PORTER AND PEACEFUL PERSUASION


Title:

Nobody's Doin' A Doggone Thing


Label:

S.O.H. 026


Condition: VG++
Now here’s a story. Back in ’76 when Ian Levine wrote a column in the monthly Black Magazine (first place I ever heard of the Shrine label) he tipped this one, and in the era of Black Nasty, East Coast Connection etc. it wasn't a bad call. Here is the rub, in the intervening 40 years I never saw the disc or heard it until it turned up on a Kent funk CD last year. Over the years a couple have turned up on EBay but this has to be a rarity. Check out the soundbite.

THE SOUL SHAKERS


Title:

I'm Getting Weaker


Label:

Loma 2047 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Leonard Jewell Smith knew the sound to make back in 66/67 with many of his records being perfect for the UK in the next decade. But why? His releases never seemed to hit and are all rare. In fact the backing track to this one was used at least another two times but none better than this Teri-De gem.

HOWARD TATE


Title:

You're Lookin' Good


Label:

Utopia 511


Condition: M-
This is Tate’s first solo record prior to signing for Verve Records. Known since the days of the Torch it has always been a difficult 45 to find. Unrelated to the West Coast label of the same name this is most likely a New York imprint but there is a faint chance that it could be a Philadelphia label.

JUNE ALEXANDER


Title:

The Girl That Radiates That Charm


Label:

Judd 1020


Condition: VG++
Another debut disc, this time from Arthur Alexander in 1960 (the name June is short for ‘Junior’) and a superb R&B dancer. First time ever on our list for this one and the label was owned by Jud Philips who was the brother of the legendary Sam Phillips (they mis-spelt ‘Jud’ and just kept the logo). For sure a very rare record that you might not see for sale again in quite a while.

Title:

Chick, Chick / You Gotta Be An Angel


Label:

Rouser 2954


Condition: M-
An odd copy was knocking around as a minor spin in the Stafford era, all of a sudden everyone realised that the 45 had been grossly underrated and that a frantic stormer lay waiting for the turntables. Somewhat reminiscent of Rodger Collin’s ‘She’s Looking Good’. It is very good news that there is room/demand for records like this today. Check out the flipside ‘You Gotta Be An Angel’, great Northern. Both available on the soundbite.

Title:

I Can't Please You


Label:

Canadian President 1005


Condition: VG++
Highly touted as a rare UK release on President, this Canadian release obviously occurred because of that one but must be incredibly rare – if it didn't sell here then how many must it have sold in Canada?
