THE VOLUMES


Title:

Ain't Gonna Give You Up


Label:

Karen 101


Condition: M-
About 15 years ago, this record leapt from collector’s realms onto the dancefloor in a serious way. Briefly also the Magnetics of ‘Lady In Green’ fame, this group were typical of a whole strata of quality to be found in the Detroit music scene of the time. Beautiful condition, scarcely a mark.

Title:

Your Loves Too Strong


Label:

Avin 102 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Like item A, this Chicago winner is one that emerged in more recent times (after a sojourn in collectors’ circles) to become a big dancefloor winner in the current millennium.

WILLIE TEE


Title:

I Peeped Your Hole Card


Label:

Gatur 701


Condition: M-
For our money this is the equal in rarity of any of Willie Tee’s Gatur recordings and a hard 45 to locate. All of them are fine soul records and this is no exception.

THE STARTONES


Title:

Lovin' You Baby


Label:

Billie Fran 001


Condition: VG++
An unknown group (and in all probability white) who recorded these convincing blue-eyed soul records at Cliff Herring’s Fort Worth studios in 1966. Producer Gene Henslee was quite a prominent country star who actually had a release on Motown’s Mel-O-Dy label.

VEE GEES


Title:

Talkin


Label:

Jump Off 2002


Condition: M-
Not a bright idea, in radio terms to have such a name (please note Little Richie, Jodi Mathis and others), however these were actually the Versatile Gents from Greensboro, North Carolina. Released in 1974 it has always been an obscure rarity which got Mecca ‘last hour’ plays but has received rightful accolades in recent times.

OTIS LEE


Title:

Hard Row To Hoe


Label:

Quaint 11


Condition: M-
Paid £2.50 off Soul Bowl for this in 1979 and promptly filed it away only for it to emerge a few years later as a massive Stafford spin worth a bob or two more. Lovely condition as sponsored by Polo and Trebor.

EARL WHITE JR.


Title:

Very Special Girl


Label:

Cygnet 102


Condition: M-
A 1977 release out of Bossier City, Louisiana (which is next to Shreveport, home of Jewel, Paula, Ronn stable of records). Partly recorded at Malaco Studios, this is a total gem of southern-styled modern soul.

THE ENCHANTERS


Title:

There's A Look About You


Label:

Tee Pee 66


Condition: M-
A subsidiary of Target Records from Appleton, Wisconsin apparently – now, that really is an out-of-the-way place for soul but genuine black soul music it certainly is with a nice sweet soul flip. Writer Seymour Lefco had quite a prolific jazz career but also wrote one side of the rare Delon Washington 45 on Lovelites. Record is totally mint but has a slight storage warp.

MICKIE CHAMPION


Title:

What Good Am I (Without You)


Label:

Musette 9151


Condition: M-
San Diego – you can’t whack it, two great zoos, SeaWorld and, back in 1967, Musette Records. Blues singer Mickie Champion was brought in to turn out an R&B-influenced soul chugger that was massive at Wigan (and Cleethorpes) in early ’75.

NANCY BUTTS


Title:

I Want To Hold Your Hand Baby (I Get Lonely)


Label:

Flaming Arrow 19


Condition: M-
Just to show that Wigan, Cleethorpes, Blackpool didn’t have all the best tunes, this corker from Nancy proves the sentiment. A gem of a dancer that didn’t show until the late eighties. Nancy was from Georgia, but Eugene Davis’ stable of labels (Flaming Arrow / Crow) was essentially Detroit-based (even if some of the recordings were not Detroit).

SAXIE RUSSELL


Title:

Psychedelic Soul


Label:

Thomas 1639 (dj)


Condition: M-
A biggie back in ’74 at the Ukrainian Club in Todmorden – make no wonder I couldn’t concentrate on my O levels! Outrageous stomper, fit only for our scene. A few years ago, Part 3 turned up (the original 45 is Parts 1&2) and got a release on an Outta Sight 45 (quite legally, as are all Outta Sight releases).

BIG DADDY ROGERS


Title:

I'm A Big Man


Label:

Midas 9006


Condition: M-
Staying with the Windy City (so named for the bluster of its Thirties politicians, not because of any climatic concerns) and this blues-influenced stormer that has been packing dancefloors for over a couple of decades without ever turning up much as an original 45. Rogers is a total unknown as far as we know.

PATTERSON TWINS


Title:

I Need Your Love


Label:

Malaco 1036


Condition: M-
Rather like the Earl White 45 (item G) this is a superb piece of Southern-orientated modern soul, certainly one of the rarest 45s on the legendary Jackson, Mississippi label. Dating from ’76 I don’t remember this being around as a new release at all – certainly I would have bought it if it had been.

BOBBY KLINE


Title:

Say Something Nice To Me


Label:

MB 105


Condition: M-
Super midtempo item from yet another unknown voice (often these artists were someone else) and with the correct labels on the correct sides (many are reversed). The label was related to the Down East logo and seems to start and finish with #105. It was named after Miriam Bienstock and hails from 1967.

SONNY TURNER and SOUND LIMITED


Title:

Now That You're Gone


Label:

Musicor 1459 (dj)


Condition: M-
Sonny Turner replaced Tony Williams in The Platters and was the voice of many of their releases that our scene loves, such as ‘Washed Ashore’, ‘Devri’ and ‘With This Ring’. One of two solo singles he released on the Musicor label, this crossover sound reminds us of something Marvin Gaye might have done at the time. Rare enough to get a re-release on Kent’s ‘blue label’ series of reissues.
