THE LOVERS


Title:

Without A Doubt


Label:

Frantic 2133


Condition: M-
A totally perfect copy of this West Coast rarity that has at last revealed its true quality and rarity after first appearing on the scene in the seventies. This is the same group that also appeared as the Emotions on Vardan and the Pacesetters on labels such as Minit and Fantasy.

WINFIELD PARKER


Title:

I Love You Just The Same


Label:

Ru-Jac 0017


Condition: M-
Baltimore’s first on a crunching stomper which is just about the rarest record to emerge from the old Torch all-nighters in Stoke. The label later reinvented the song as a midtempo item (Ru-Jac 0024) but this take is the one for the dancefloors. Parker, incidentally claims he was the one lined up for ‘Sweet Soul Music’ but circumstances lead to Ru-Jac labelmate Arthur Conley recording the song instead.

Title:

I Love You, My Love


Label:

S.V.R. 1006


Condition: M-
In the eighties this was a rare Detroit record indeed, then, at the beginning of the following decade a few copies turned up only to swiftly disappear. That would appear to be the sum total of this crisp Motor City mover. Unusually the flipside is a girl group, the Durettes, with ‘Sweet Sweet Love’ – in itself a reasonable dancer.

JOE ARNOLD, DAVIS COMBO


Title:

No Clouds In The Sky


Label:

2 Spot 102


Condition: VG++
Just love this early sixties infectious dancer who would appear to be not the same artist as the one on Wand, Cotillion etc and who was part of the Stax revue band that came to Europe. For starters that Joe Arnold was white and this guy certainly sounds black.... on the other hand the saxophone playing is totally top-rate here, but that is most likely coincidental.

Title:

(Please) Take A Chance On Me / You Upset Me Baby


Label:

Le Mans 004


Condition: VG++
A rare yellow issue for this catchy midtempo item out of Detroit featuring the lead vocal of the great Edward Hamilton and produced by James Hendrix of Carrie Records (obviously not to be confused with Jimi Hendrix) But wait.... don’t miss the great flip ‘You Upset Me Baby’ which we've already ‘soundbitten’ for you.

THE GREY IMPRINT


Title:

Do You Get The Message?


Label:

Clear Hill 91115


Condition: VG+
Dating from 1969 this is one of the more impressive sixties discoveries in recent years and one with loads of mileage for the right deejay, having never been booted/reissued. Just a few light marks on the vinyl but the records sounds fine indeed. Check the soundbite.

Title:

My World Is On Fire


Label:

Palmer 5019 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Feel good gem set the Casino on fire many times back in ’75. It’s never been satisfactorily explained just who the singer is. Certainly we believe the name is borrowed from the Martha Reeves hit. Could it really be Jimmy ‘Soul’ Clark? – sounds a lot like him.

Title:

The Time Is Right For Love


Label:

Bell 888


Condition: M-
‘Discovered’ at Anglo in the mid-eighties and sold to one R. Searling, from whence a monster crossover spin emerged. In truth, it had probably been in a few collection before that time but the crossover scene was yet to find its niche between Modern and Northern. Difficult to imagine how it could be ignored now. Rarer on the silver issue copy than on the white promo and a stone minter too.

Title:

No Seat Dancin


Label:

DeElegance 0102


Condition: M-
The eighties certainly was a decade when little label independents came to the fore, some of which quickly vanished, but this 1986 release totally slipped under the radar quite amazingly. It’s amazing because, a) it’s totally brilliant with more of a seventies feel about it, and b) producer Ben Cauley was well-known to all at that time (ex Bar-Kay, survivor of the Otis Redding air crash etc etc). For these very reasons it has to be a rarity or else we would have snapped it up then.

Title:

My Hang Up Is You


Label:

(UK) GSF 7


Condition: VG++
On the Jimmy Mack auction item mention is made of Wigan Casino in 1975, well this was another massive spin (also Cleethorpes Pier) at that time being a couple of years old and already difficult to find. For sure time has not changed that situation and none of the eleven UK GSF releases are common. However, this one is easily the rarest of the lot (and we don’t seem to find the record much on U.S. label either).
