Artist:

MICHAEL & RAYMOND


Title:

Man Without A Woman


Label:

RCA 9244


Condition: VG++
Detroit’s Monette and Campbell went to Pied Piper and turned out a vinyl wonder. One of our favourite blue-eyed Northern records and as with virtually every Northern Soul RCA black issue is the one to have/own.

Artist:

BOBBY PARIS


Title:

I Walked Away


Label:

Capitol 5929 (dj)


Condition: M-
And so, onto another of our blue-eyed favourites which went massive with the dancers in ’78. Of Hispanic origins, Paris was no music scene no-hoper having co-produced Bobby Gentry’s big hit ‘Ode To Billy Joe’ but we doubt, at the time, he regarded himself as a soul artist…. Although the vocal despair in the fade-out of the final groove reeks of emotion that might reach a different conclusion. Through ‘Personally’ and ‘Night Owl’ as well, we love him.

Artist:

JOHNNY SUMMERS


Title:

Is The Feeling Still There


Label:

Audio Forty 1800


Condition: M-
A friend of mine met this artist a few years ago and although Summers had copies of his two Yorktown releases he didn’t have this one. It’s a version of a record also recorded by the Remarkables (with the ‘other’ Frank Wilson on vocals).

MARIE KNIGHT


Title:

That's No Way To Treat A Girl


Label:

Musicor 1106


Condition: VG++
‘The taste of madness that your lips placed on mine’…. We’ve all been there! What a lyric – Lennon and McCartney eat your hearts out! Turns out that Marie Knight was never truly at ease outside of gospel music, but you’d never know…. She turned out half a dozen fabulous soul sides at least, of which her Musicor recordings were the last. What a way to go out.

THE NATURAL FOUR


Title:

I Thought You Were Mine


Label:

ABC 11253 (dj)


Condition: M-
Oakland’s finest, first recorded this track for Boola Boola Records in ’67. Local sales were such that ABC picked the group, after their first single for the label sank, they re-recorded ‘I Thought You Were Mine’ and put rather zip and pep into the track. The result was very appreciated 6 years later in the UK.

EDDIE FOSTER


Title:

I Never Knew


Label:

In 6311


Condition: VG++
Staying with the West Coast and a famous oldie we haven’t had for sale in quite a while. 100% definite original and probably better condition than VG++ would indicate…. Just one mark.

SAM DEES


Title:

Lonely For You Baby


Label:

SSS International 732


Condition: M-
Surprisingly this one was around in the seventies without anyone waking up to it’s potential. How did we miss it? It was the following decade before it started making enough waves to become a classic. Anyway, it’s Sam’s first recording and was made at Ed Boutwell’s studio in Atlantic circa 1967.

Title:

What's The Use Of Me Trying


Label:

Okeh 7319 WD


Condition: M-
Back to Ginger and back in ’73 when I took my first tentative steps into Todmorden’s Northern Soul scene me and Eddie were playing this one, making for a couple of forms at Tod Grammar School who knew records like this better than Bowie, Glitter and the like. Fast forward 30 years and the other side ‘Let My Heart And Soul Be Free’ is the biggie. You can take your pick but you’ll struggle to find a more minty copy.

Title:

Try A Little Harder


Label:

Keymen 106


Condition: M-
A similar story to the above record really…. Of course, we had it on the Jayboy label without realising how rare it was on the true original. It’s a perfect copy, and after all these years of repeated plays, deejaying and minor abuse how many all-nighter copies can claim such a thing?

THE SOUL SHAKERS


Title:

I'm Getting Weaker


Label:

Loma 2047


Condition: M-
I remember the first time I went down to Soul Bowl with Ginger in 1976, John Anderson sold him this one as a new discovery. Needless to say, it was on a promo copy and this is only the third issue copy I’ve seen in the intervening 43 years and probably the only one in mint condition. Never booted/reissued it’s ideal for an enterprising deejay.
