Artist:

TOMMY NAVARRO


Title:

I Cried My Life Away


Label:

De Jac 1253


Condition: VG+
Back in the Stafford era this was one of the records that broke the mould i.e. when an earlier sound came in. It is still one of the best of its kind. Not mint by any means but plays well if you want to check the soundbite.

MICKIE CHAMPION


Title:

What Good Am I (Without You)


Label:

Musette 9151


Condition: M-
West Coast artist Ms Champion transfers her Blues sensibilities to a careering, chugging dancer that not only loosened ceiling plaster at the Casino but came again in the new millennium to become one of the biggest sounds around.

Title:

Country Girl


Label:

Parkway 966 (dj)


Condition: VG++
And talking of records that shook the rafters at Wigan, this was one in ’79. Read the full story in the forthcoming book ‘Setting The Record Straight’ from Richard Searling. Low start price? Well, although the vinyl is perfectly reasonable there is a 3mm chip on the edge of the disc. This still leaves 2.5mm to cue the disc up (which is more than enough to be honest).

LITTLE JOHNNY WILLIAMS


Title:

Invitation To A Dance


Label:

King Walk 568


Condition: VG++
Unlikely to be the Chicago artist, this is a hard punchy R&B styled mover from out of New Orleans which has only ever been listed a handful of times on EBay and not at all for a few years. Fabulous Deep Soul on the flipside ‘A House Ain't A Home’.

L. ALLEN


Title:

Can't We Talk It Over


Label:

Green Dolphin 115


Condition: VG++
A piece of Pittsburgh soul music unlike any other to be honest. Also pressed as Larry Allen but to be honest I've seen more copies of that one than L. Allen – not surprising as I was once told in Pittsburgh that the L. Allen release was withdrawn. Very strong VG++ by the way, just a couple of light marks defy mint condition status.

THE FLIRTATIONS


Title:

Stronger Than Her Love


Label:

Festival 705 (dj)


Condition: VG+
Original West Coast press promo (November 1966 actually) of this fantastic piece of pure Northern Soul which ticks all the boxes as a dancefloor filler. A few marks and a one-second cue burn but check out the soundbite to decide.

AUGUST MOON


Title:

You're Together Baby / Wasted Years


Label:

O-Gee 100


Condition: VG++
One of those great records we all overlooked back in the seventies whilst we were waiting to find ‘Have Love Will Travel’ (and paying £30 for it). August Moon was also Mr Wiggles on Parkway although his real name was Alexander Randolph. Although he hailed from Richmond, Virginia this recording (his last?) would appear to have been made in New York. Great double-sider here – check out ‘Wasted Years’ on the flip which were also ‘sound bitten’ for you.

THE FANTASTICS


Title:

Me And You


Label:

Sound Stage 7 2565


Condition: M-
Here’s another one that passed most folks by back in the day only for its full glory to be revealed in recent times. The group were Jethro Caldwell, Willie Parnell, Eddie Webb and Bobby Williams hailing from the Houston area of Texas. This was their final release (tho’ various group members moved elsewhere) back in July ’66. A nice copy with just a little ring wear on this side.

THE EPITOME OF SOUND


Title:

You Don't Love Me


Label:

Sandbag 101 (dj)


Condition: M-
Black and white promo copy is surely the one to have. Recorded in 1967 whilst the group were still known as The Megatons, this one was engineered by Jon Bon Jovi’s uncle! (thankfully he didn't sing on it). After being picked up by the Long Island Sandbag label the label stated that a change of name (from the Megatons) was required and bass player Bob Ligatino came up with the wonderful new name. Played, written and produced by white guys, lead singer Eddie Thomas was black and that element makes the difference.

CONNIE STEVENS


Title:

Tick-Tock


Label:

Bell 922 (dj)


Condition: VG+
To the best of my knowledge this is the first time we've had this (tho’ we could have let it slip by us in the past). Produced by Thom Bell, in fact the Stylistics’ song ‘Betcha By Golly Wow’ is the A-side and the first release of the number (although titled ‘Keep Growing Strong’). This one went nowhere despite the artists’ fame as a television and film star. Nor is it her first flirtation with ‘Northern’ as she recorded the original of ‘Something Beautiful’.
