Artist:

TONY MICHAELS


Title:

Picture Me And You / I Love The Life I Live (And Love The Life I Love)


Label:

Golden World 41


Condition: M-
One of the rarest records on the famous Golden World label is Tony Michaels’ only solo recording (he was the Reflections lead singer) on YELLOW ISSUE COPY rather than the white promo. A catchy number which went big at Wigan in ’76 and is backed with his fine vocal to ‘Hungry for Love’, namely ‘I Love The Life I Live’.

BILEO


Title:

You Can Win


Label:

M.T.U. / Watts City 101


Condition: VG++
A big spin on the 80s modern scene (it is a rare 1979 release) from a five-man group lead by one Bill Williams. Amazingly, this obscure record/song has been sampled on three different occasions, which just goes to illustrate the power and influence of a rare soul movement now over 50 years old.

Title:

I Lost You / Easy Living


Label:

Groove City 206


Condition: VG++
Superb Detroit double-sider from one of a number of apparitions of the name ‘Holidays’ and this 45 is the first line-up of two that appeared on Revilot (never mind all the other releases on other labels). To add to the confusion, the flipside ‘Easy Living’ is Steve Mancha! Both sides are fabulous tracks however, and we have therefore ‘sound-bitten’ each sides for you.

JOSEPH MOORE


Title:

I Still Can't Get You


Label:

Mar-V-Lus 6008


Condition: VG++
One of the rarest Chicago soul releases and only our second-ever copy. Despite the Windy City label, this is a leased-in New York recording from the singer who recorded as Joe Moore on Verve/Tru-Glo-Town. Bid high, bid low, but you won’t see this one for sale in a hurry. Strong VG++, DJ stamp on flipside label.

Title:

Your Love Has Got Me Down / Love Is A Good Thing Goin'


Label:

Mar-V-Lus 6010


Condition: M-
Dovetailing nicely with the above, this is the other Mar-V-Lus rarity and on this occasion recorded in Chicago itself. Two good sides and we’ve placed both on the sound-bite. This is the same group that had ‘Daughter’ on Witch but with added members. Both this and item D were manufactured in very small quantities and quickly forgotten by label owner George Leaner.

CLYDE MILTON


Title:

I'd Rather Leave On My Feet


Label:

Disco Tac 101


Condition: VG++
Obscure version of the song earlier recorded on DT by Emanuel Laskey. The unknown Milton does a fine job on vocals. Again, and like others on this auction, this is only the second copy we’ve ever had.

FRANK BEVERLY & THE BUTLERS


Title:

If That's What You Wanted


Label:

Sassy 1002


Condition: VG++
There is little to add to the superlative music in the grooves of this one… if you don’t know it, you shouldn’t be here! Suffice it to say that this is the first release before Gamble and the more desirable of the two releases of it on Sassy, with it having the excellent ‘Love (Your Pain Goes Deep)’ on the flipside. Only one small mark with some all-nighter ‘greying’ on the vinyl hence our condition estimate of VG++. Plays mint (see/hear sound-bite).

PRINCE ELLA and SIDNEY JONES


Title:

Baby Sugar I Love You / Baby I Got To Cut You Loose


Label:

Prince 711


Condition: VG++
Very rare pink label original of a track that went enormous from its very first spins in ’76 before being booted in double-quick time and forgotten all about. To our knowledge the flipside, ‘Baby I Got To Cut You Loose’ wasn’t played at the time and would be worth a revival… if only deejays had a copy or two. It’s a rare ‘un for sure, certainly not mint but such a thing may be impossible.

THE ASCOTS


Title:

Just A Few Feet From The Gutter


Label:

American Playboy 1007 (dj)


Condition: M-
Un-connected to the Ascots on Mir-A-Don / M.B.S. (and at least half a dozen others) this was a three-man combo featuring lead singer Talmadge Armstrong. Amazingly, in the seventies they had an album release. They also recorded as the Escotts. On an almost-perfect D.J. copy, this great track has acquired quite a following in recent years.

THE HYTONES


Title:

Bigger And Better


Label:

A-Bet 9415


Condition: M-
For our money this is both bigger and better than the groups’ admittedly rarer 45 on Southern Artists (also Bell). The group featured the great Freddie Waters and were apparently shown on the local Nashville T.V. show ‘Night Train’ a number of times. Tremendous deep ballad flipside ‘I’ve Got My Baby’, has some writing on the label.

LITTLE REUBEN


Title:

In The Name Of Loneliness


Label:

NR 602


Condition: VG++
The eighties crossover scene let in gems like this one which had been considered rather too slow beforehand. And boy, can this guy sing (it’s a 1976 Detroit release that certainly wasn’t in UK shops at the time), we know of only one other Detroit release by a singer of this name and it isn’t very good. This one is outstanding.

ALEX BROWN


Title:

I'm Not Responsible


Label:

Sundi 316


Condition: M-
Culled from an impossibly-rare album and produced by the great Monk Higgins. Alex was a successful West Coast backing singer used by Simon Soussan back in the seventies… possibly an ex-Sharonette therefore. The 45 has always been tricky to locate.

BOBBY TREETOP


Title:

So Sweet So Satisfyin'


Label:

Tuff 415 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Back in ’76 I never heard the end of it when I told my curious non-soul workmates that I liked Bobby Treetop! Nonetheless, and despite his peculiar name, he is still one of the great unknowns of Northern Soul. This is the rarer of his two 45s with that lovely watermarked white promo paper you find on an odd Chicago demo or two.

DELILAH MOORE


Title:

It Takes Love


Label:

Middle Earth 001


Condition: M-
An ex-Mecca cult 45 that was very elusive back in the Highland Room days and has since proved to be a definite rarity. Delilah Moore has three early seventies recordings to her credit (this is one) and might just be Delilah Kennebruew on Loma (long thought to be a member of the Crystals by the same name, but apparently not).

BOBBY PARIS


Title:

I Walked Away


Label:

Capitol 5929


Condition: VG++
Like many Northern Soul records on major labels the issue of this glorious blue-eyed stomper is significantly rarer than the promo. Not a minter, but not bad at all – has just a few crackles on the intro so check the sound-bite.

PRINCE PHILLIP MITCHELL


Title:

I'm So Happy


Label:

Atlantic 3587


Condition: M-
It’s surprising how infrequently we get this 45. I remember this one coming out as a new release and it wasn’t easy to find even then (possibly because many Prince Phillip fans had already bought the album it was on).
