Image Auction: RSV-1214  Ends: 30/08/2018 18:00
Artist:

JOAN DOVALLE


Title:

Let Me Go


Label:

Sport 102


Condition: VG+
Absolutely corking Detroit version of the Big Maybelle record and a long-term rarity. Why this has never been an absolute monster is beyond us. Not mint by any means but plays well. Check out the soundbite (particularly if you don’t know this amazing track).

Title:

Where's My Money


Label:

Mr. Peacock 104 (dj)


Condition: M-
Red-hot R&B dancer has remained scarce since it first came to everyone’s attention and is probably a bigger dance floor packer than it has ever been.

THE FI-DELS


Title:

Try A Little Harder


Label:

Keymen 106


Condition: M-
Both this and the other Northern classic on the same label by the Furys are much rarer discs than was long appreciated. Records like these hardly ever show up in the States today. Pure magic in the grooves of course and a group formed in the U.S. Marine Corps hence their name, from the corps’ motto ‘Semper Fidelis’ (always faithful).

SAMMY GAHA


Title:

Thank You, Thank You


Label:

Right-On! 103


Condition: M-
The Canadian Right On! Label is a complete mystery, clearly it totally copies (in design) Dave Godin’s seventies UK label…. But Godin knew nothing about it at all. Some releases even hints at Godin’s musical preferences, sexual orientation etc etc. Bizarre. Anyway, this release is a 1977 modern soul dancer that also came out on a very obscure French label. Rare on both sides of the Atlantic then.

Artist:

SONNY ALLEN & THE ROCKETTES


Title:

I Love You Sonny Baby


Label:

Reo 8878


Condition: M-
A very obscure Canadian release with absolutely no sign of a U.S. release whatsoever despite the fact that this is a superb midtempo cut from a combo known for their fifties ‘lindy hop’ dance moves – listen to this one – you won’t regret it. Don’t think this is the same guy who recorded on the Detroit label Hitpack but they’re both soulful.

IVORYS


Title:

Please Stay


Label:

Despenza 12266


Condition: M-
As far as we know the Ivorys are still one of the great unknowns of Chicago soul and the fact that this is on Barry Despenza’s label is about all we can give you. Despenza was an A&R man for ABC who knew his way around the music business hence this one going to Wand Records… but this one is the original!

HARRY MOON and THE FIDE


Title:

Stop (You're Breaking My Heart) / Woman's Man


Label:

Sin 4553


Condition: M-
Very obscure and rare version of the Indelgents/Dream Merchants record – as it is produced by the writer George Guess it might just be the first version. The flipside ‘Woman’s Man’ is also a superb harmony dancer and we’ve included a soundbite of that one too.

STUDIO BAND


Title:

You Made Me Mad (Instrumental)


Label:

Gateway Acetate


Condition: VG+
Yes, the vocal to this one was issued on Pittsburgh’s VAL label (and is on the flipside of this acetate) but here is the unissued instrumental to this storming dancer on a very rare, if not one-off, acetate. Would have been huge at Wigan!

YVONNE BAKER


Title:

You Didn't Say A Word


Label:

Parkway 140 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Not much to say about this track that hasn’t been said before. Suffice it to say that it is in very good condition with only a few light marks.

THE BAY BROTHERS


Title:

What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)


Label:

Millennium 11810


Condition: M-
Easily the rarest version of the Jr Walker song but actually very rare on an issue copy with the flipside ‘One And Only’. Virtually all copies are promos with ‘What Does It Take’ on both sides.
  
Reserve Price: £150.00

Image Auction: RSV-1225  Ends: 30/08/2018 18:00
Artist:

FRANK FOSTER


Title:

Harlem Rumble


Label:

Triode 120


Condition: M-
Fast becoming the nation’s top instrumental floor packer, this also came out as the Grambling College Marching Band – perhaps better to have it by Frank Foster who is almost certainly the saxophonist on this one – and quite a famous jazz name venturing down ‘Soul Road’.

Artist:

RAY CHARLES


Title:

I Don't Need No Doctor


Label:

H.M.V. 1566 (dj)


Condition: M-
From ’65 to ’67 Charles came up with a slew of fine soul dancers as he strove to keep up with the times. He had little success with any of them especially here in the UK, where record company executives must have pined for a return to ‘I Can’t Stop Loving You’ – types. The result is a scarce item and a fine-looking bright green promo copy.

PATRICE HOLLOWAY


Title:

Love And Desire


Label:

UK Capitol 15484 (dj)


Condition: M-
A superb copy of this tremendous double-sider has not seen many (any?) needles since its 25th November 1966 UK issue…. The Beach Boys ‘Good Vibrations’ was number one in the charts on the same label, so I don’t think UK Capitol were too worried about the utter failure of Patrice’s superb effort.

Artist:

RAY POLLARD


Title:

It's A Sad Thing


Label:

United Artists 1133 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Another one from ’66 (27th May to be exact) and big-voiced Pollard picks up the tempo ever-so-slightly from ‘The Drifter’, with a faint latin-twinge to it. Both 45’s met with indifference, not only here but, more strangely, in America too. Ray was a minor actor as well as a fantastic singer… in fact he had an ‘extras’ part in ‘Ghost Busters’!

Title:

Landslide


Label:

Chess 1979 (dj)


Condition: M-
A perfect copy of the all-time classic which is so, so, desirable on a white deejay complete with that lovely ‘promotional use’ watermarked paper on the label.

JAMO THOMAS


Title:

I Spy (For The FBI)


Label:

Polydor 56709 (dj)


Condition: M-
Extremely rare promo of the FIRST UK release of this classic issued almost simultaneously with the U.S. Thomas release. Not to be confused Polydor 56755 from three years later issued due to demand from the embryonic Northern scene (which is relatively common).

BEN ZINE


Title:

Village Of Tears


Label:

Parkway 996


Condition: VG++
Wigan monster spin from ‘77/’78 is VERY RARE on a genuine stock ISSUE copy. Think about it – nearly all copies are white promos. Nice copy, just a little ‘greying’ on the vinyl.

Title:

Nobody Knows What's Goin' On


Label:

Pye 17042 (dj)


Condition: M-
Stomping cover version of the Chiffons’ record was quite a big spin at the same time as the above Ben Zine disc. UK only, and nice to own on a mint white promo.
