Artist:

LYNNE RANDELL


Title:

Stranger In My Arms


Label:

CBS BA-221387 (AUSTRALIAN)


Condition: VG++
Surely the real and true ORIGINAL for this Torch anthem? Logic dictates that Aussie girl Lynne would have her disc put out in her own nation. For sure this has to be the rarest issue out of U.S., U.K. and Australian.

Title:

Since I Met You (E.P.)


Label:

COLUMBIA 1799 (FRENCH)


Condition: M-
Staying with the foreign releases and the ULTIMATE in French soul collectables. This 4-track E.P. features ‘You Dropped Your Candy In The Sand’, ‘Do Whatcha Wanna Do’, ‘Since I Met You’ and ‘I'm Uptight’ – all placed within a quite superb full-colour picture sleeve. 20 years ago a picture book of French soul releases was issued and this one wasn't even included, so rare is it.

Title:

This Beautiful Day


Label:

PARLOPHONE 8676 (JAMAICAN)


Condition: VG+
Making up a trio of non U.S./U.K. rarities is this West Indian release of a Torch monster. I mean, how many would have sold or even been manufactured? The original name of course, he changed it to Levi Jackson for a later release because that name sounded more in keeping with a soul record.

Title:

If This Is Love (I'd Rather Be Lonely)


Label:

Arc 1206 (CANADIAN)


Condition: M-
Amongst the very best of Canadian-only soul releases, a quite superb rendition of the Precisions’ song. Not surprising really as they shipped Mike Terry into Toronto (more likely the 5-hour car journey) from Detroit to arrange it all, or did they? Sounds like exactly the same backing track to me. As with all Canadian releases this must have been made in minuscule quantities with all of ‘em residing in the U.K. by now.

THE HIGH KEYS


Title:

Living A Lie


Label:

Verve 10423 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Amongst the superb Northern Soul output of this U.S. label, this High Keys disc stands amongst the best. And it crops up for sale far less than is generally realised as well. I've a cassette of Wigan Casino circa Autumn ’74 and amongst the ‘Footsees’ and Carmel Strings and Javells records, this one stands out like a beacon of common sense. Still sounds outstanding today.

Title:

Darkest Days


Label:

ABC 11146 (dj)


Condition: M-
Surprised at us auctioning this one? Well for starters this is the kind of thing that has simply VANISHED from the States, even regular Mirwood ‘cheapies just don’t crop up there any more. And in stone mint too. What’s more if we set-saled it we would have a hundred calls/emails/requests so, being true agents of democracy we offer it up to everyone.

ENCHANTMENTS


Title:

I'm In Love With Your Daughter


Label:

Faro 620 (dj)


Condition: VG++
A 1965 Los Angeles release in the arena of what is known as Chicano Soul i.e. recorded by Spanish/Mexican Americans in East L.A. It’s the kind of tough area where your hotel receptionist will be behind a metal grille rather than an open desk, but it produced its own kind of ‘brown’ soul with groups like Thee Midniters and Majestics also offering up Northern gems. Played constantly to this day ‘I'm In Love With Your Daughter’ is still packing floors.

Title:

I'm Catching On


Label:

BSC 401


Condition: M-
Out of Detroit, basically this record is a one-box, one-time scenario courtesy of Dave Withers 25 years ago. Although copies had turned up some years before Dave’s find, very very few have turned up in the U.S. since then revealing this one to be essentially a very rare disc.

MAJOR LANCE


Title:

You Don't Want Me No More


Label:

Okeh 7284 (dj)


Condition: VG++
I saw the Major a couple of times in the seventies (but not at the Torch, I'm a bit too young for that), he was always backed by what appeared to be a bunch of hippies and I never saw him perform this one – his biggest Northern Soul sound. Then again, I'm fairly certain that the hippy band could never have recreated the sheer explosive power of this record, so maybe they did me a favour!

Title:

I Hurt On The Other Side


Label:

Capitol 5981 (dj)


Condition: M-
A true gem of the Northern scene and for our money, better than Sidney Barnes’ (the co-writer) version on Blue Cat. A very authentic-looking boot was done of the issue. So cast doubt aside and get this green promo on the turntable!

Title:

I'll Always Love You


Label:

Warren 108 (dj)


Condition: M-
Superb piece of Northern which first went big in ’75. Suppose the black stock copy is rather scarce now, but for sure the white promo has always been even rarer. Funk fans shouldn't miss the rather decent flipside ‘Do Your Own Thing’, soundfile for both sides available, have a listen.

PATTI & THE EMBLEMS


Title:

I'm Gonna Love You A Long, Long Time


Label:

Kapp 897


Condition: VG++
Ultra-rare black issue copy is one of the rarest issue copies around with only 3 or 4 known to be in collectors’ hands. If someone could tell me the top deejay that has one of these I’d like to know his or her name. In an age of multi-thousand pound Northern Soul records, this puts many much more expensive records to shame.
