THE TEMPTONES


Title:

Girl I Love You


Label:

Arctic 130 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Famously the group including Hall and Oates of course but, in paying tribute to the Temptones, this is nothing but PURE SOUL all the way and a gleaming trophy in Arctic’s cabinet. Never booted, reissued or made available other than original 45.

Title:

Alone Again / Do It, With The Feeling


Label:

Blue Soul 1010


Condition: M-
Chicago Modern Soul rarity hits hard with the named midtempo track but many might go for the more uptempo flipside ‘Do It, With The Feeling’ which we have also soundbitten for your consideration.

LITTLE JOHNNY HAMILTON and THE CREATORS


Title:

Oh How I Love You


Label:

Dore 754


Condition: M-
A much rarer 45 than is generally realised, this is our first copy in 20 years. Originally played at Wigan by one R. Searling, the copy was moved onto Ginger in ’78 and he did big things with it. Lovely condition too.

Title:

Wayward Dream


Label:

Twinight 132 (dj)


Condition: M-
First time ever on our list and not surprisingly as this is one of a couple of supreme rarities on the famed label. Top-notch Crossover tune of course and, what’s more, in beautiful condition save for a few tiny dimples in the vinyl. Check the soundbite if you have any doubts concerning their insignificance.

ENCHANTMENTS


Title:

I'm In Love With Your Daughter


Label:

Faro 620 (dj)


Condition: VG+
By comparison with the above Annette Poindexter (which is virtually unplayed) this storming dancefloor filler has seen something of life in its 52 years. Plays with crackles therefore but not too badly and is therefore perfect for deejaying with. Take a listen to the soundbite.

Title:

Please Stay


Label:

Despenza 12266


Condition: VG++
Now regarded as something of a classic, for the first few years of its discovery/emergence it wasn’t really highly regarded. Makes you wonder what kind of ears we had back then! It was at the Cleethorpes all-nighters that the 45 really emerged to prominence and since then its esteem has rightly risen – with its prominent violin and wistful feel it is a Northern Soul record like no other.

Title:

Good Lovin


Label:

Fynal Vynal 1001


Condition: M-
A huge spin on the modern scene shortly after its late 80s discovery, it has always been difficult to locate. The label states the mantra ‘Look Out – Soul Is Back’ and this is very true on a 45 that recreates the classic seventies Philly sound.

PAMELA BEATY


Title:

Talking Eyes


Label:

Tip 1018 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Virtually reprises Jimmy Holiday’s ‘Ready Willing and Able’ (he co-wrote the song) but so much rarer than that Minit gem. Originally the record came out on Rockin (named after another of the writers) but in a much inferior, slower form. This is by far the superior version.

WIL COLLINS & WILLPOWER


Title:

Anything I Can Do


Label:

Italian Derby 10076


Condition: M-
Such a massive dancefloor filler in ’79. Even though it was only two years old, it was a rarity due to the bankruptcy of the original U.S. Bareback label when this track came out. That it also came out in Italy is simply astounding, although clearly someone in Milan had an ear for good music! Comes with a strange picture sleeve that comprises of a picture of a rainforest.

Title:

Is She In Your Town


Label:

Mira 240


Condition: M-
Yes it’s the same guy who did the original version of ‘Under The Moon Of Love’ and ‘Pretty Little Angel Eyes’ – a hero to Showaddywaddy fans therefore! By 1966 he was however, turning out a Northern Soul corker that has to be admired despite the background to the artist.

THE CONQUISTADORS


Title:

Can't Stop Loving You


Label:

Act IV 4-13


Condition: M-
Very scarce Chicago sixties dancer we’ve only ever had once before. Same group as did the brilliant ‘Sadness And Madness’ on Signett with Jimmy Hudson as lead vocalist. Very nice vinyl but a little bit of label damage has been so well restored that the scan won’t show much of it.

THE PEARLS


Title:

Shooting High


Label:

Lamp 653


Condition: M-
This great Indianapolis label certainly has its share of quality items and this rarity is amongst them. A previously unissued version of this by O.C. Tolbert turned up a few years ago and got a Kent release, but this is the original, written by producer Herb Miller.

Title:

Everlasting Love / He's All I Need


Label:

Aquarius 4011


Condition: M-
Rare Chicago release sees two contrasting, but great, 45s on one piece of vinyl. The side above is a tremendous funky-edged dancer, whilst the flipside is the mellow midtempo ‘He’s All I Need’ – we have soundbitten both sides therefore. Super condition, as new.

KENNY WELLS


Title:

Isn't It Just A Shame


Label:

New Voice 812 (dj)


Condition: M-
All the big New York names on this one – Herb Bernstein, Gary Knight, Bob Crewe and the quality shines through from this unknown singer (who could actually be Kenny Carlton) to create a great dancer which rose to prominence in the post-Wigan era. Great slow/beat ballad flip ‘I Can’t Stop’.

Title:

Scott's On Swingers


Label:

Ric-Tic 109 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Famously a promo-only release on the famous Detroit label released as a tribute to local deejay in July 1966. At the time he was the main man on Motor City radio. This particular copy is single-sided and we don't remember ever seeing that format before. Label has a small amount of water-damage, but the rarity outweighs the label condition.

SWEET MIXTURE


Title:

House Of Fun And Love


Label:

Bazar 1008


Condition: VG++
Been solidly asked for this one since the late 80s and have had very few copies in all that time, possibly only two. The sweet mixture (!) which blends an almost-Terry Callier style of jazzy soul vocals with a great rhythm track sounds just right for today’s rare soul scene.
