THE TOPICS


Title:

Hey Girl (Where Are You Going?)


Label:

Chadwick 102 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Superb midtempo soul from this great four-man soul group issued on Joe Evans’ Carnival label subsidiary Chadwick and as rare as anything in the whole group of labels. Written by two of the group members the song takes its cue from ‘Love Makes The World Go ‘Round’ – and that’s no bad thing!

Title:

I Got The Power


Label:

Twirl 2026 (dj)


Condition: VG++
A hot tip for any deejay – if you want to turn up the atmosphere and get the night buzzing then slam this one on the decks. The powerhouse female vocalist remains unknown; however, producer Gregory Carroll had been a noted member of various doo-wop groups in his time. Twirl Records was connected to Harry Balk in Detroit but was based in New York courtesy of his associate Irving Micahnik.

MARION STEWART


Title:

I Must Be Losing You


Label:

R Records 1516


Condition: VG+
Staying in N.Y. for this poignant big beat ballad that ticks all the boxes for despair and drama. This particular copy is the West Coast press of the release on styrene and has a mark or two but plays fine… check the soundbite.

ALLAN HARRIS and PERPETUAL MOTION


Title:

Get Ready


Label:

Exact Change 4917


Condition: VG++
First spun by Richard Searling (covered up as ‘Inner Space’) in the late Wigan/early Stafford Modern Soul revival. At the time it was only known as a 12-inch and only later did the superior 45 version show up. The reason for the rarity of the single might be that virtually all copies have the labels on the wrong side and were withdrawn, as is the case with this particular copy.

Title:

I've Got Something Good


Label:

Four Brothers 452


Condition: M-
Its strange that sometimes obscure non-hits i.e., rare records, come out in several different formats. Such is the case with this iconic stomper, but this copy is probably the rarest of these – for a start it is stone mint, also the Four Brothers label before Atlantic distribution and then the yellow label copy rather than the white label. 100% guaranteed original with all the correct matrix marks.

MELVIN DAVIS


Title:

It's No News


Label:

Ke Ke 1007


Condition: VG+
Sassy early Detroit mover from the great Melvin Davis has all the right ingredients to make it on the dancefloors of the R&B/popcorn/early soul nights. Possibly Davis’ first record in ’63, although his Jackpot single was also in that year.

Title:

We Go Together


Label:

Nova 101


Condition: VG+
Talk about obscure, this fine bongo-driven soulful dancer seems to be precisely NOWHERE, we can’t find any record of it on the internet at all. Possibly the only release on the label and coupled with an excellent ballad ‘How Sweet It Is’.

PAUL THOMPSON


Title:

Special Kind Of Woman


Label:

Volt 4042


Condition: M-
Superb copy of a superb tune. A vinyl copy too, I hadn’t ever seen it on anything other than styrene until a couple of years ago – was convinced it was only West Coast on an issue. Recorded at Muscle Shoals this was Thompson’s only release (amazingly) and after its substantial failure he returned to his job with the Tennessee Valley Authority – a big shame.

Title:

Ain't That Just Like A Woman


Label:

Guyden 2082 (dj)


Condition: VG
Around 20 years ago this was one of the biggest spins in the land as the earlier sounds took quite a foothold. It still sounds good today. This is a ‘fibreglass’ copy with a multitude of fine marks which scarcely sound in all fairness. Check the soundbite.

ROSEY JONES & THE SUPERIORS


Title:

All I Need Is Half A Chance


Label:

Wickett 61472


Condition: VG
Yes, it’s the ‘Have Love Will Travel’ guy on his first release on the tiny Wickett label. First played, once more, by Richard S. and covered up as ‘Carlis Munro’. Said to be 1972 this tremendous Northern stomper sounds 5 years older than that date and has always been very rare. Condition is worn to say the least (see soundbite). Actually, the B-side came out as the other side of ‘Have Love Will Travel’ i.e., ‘Think About It Baby’.

Title:

I Can't Turn Myself Around


Label:

Haze 0012


Condition: M-
Great piece of 1978 Modern Soul from a Los Angeles band who were totally unknown to the UK at the time even to the extent of having an album on this label (by Mr. Cix).

Sweet Temptation


Label:

Good Luck 1414


Condition: VG++
Very rare Chicago tiny label release from an unknown artist turns out to be an excellent crossover sound that will be new to every public turntable I would think.

THE INVITATIONS


Title:

Watch Out Little Girl


Label:

MGM 13666 (dj)


Condition: VG++
One of the big spins around the nation before they put us all away for a year! It’s the ‘Skiing In The Snow’ group of course, but this one has turned out to be their most expensive bit of vinyl. A version of ‘You’re Like A Mystery’ on the flip offers the black perspective on The Belmonts biggie from ’78.

THE ICEMEN


Title:

It's Time You Knew


Label:

Ole-9 1008


Condition: VG++
Rare blue vinyl copy of this New York stomper looks so good. One small box of these was found circa ’74, then every other copy found seemed to be on regular vinyl. A George Kerr production with arrangements from Richard Tee… on an Eddie Singleton song – make no wonder its such a great record.

PHIL TERRELL


Title:

Love Has Passed Me By


Label:

Carnival 523


Condition: VG++
Started the auction with a Joe Evans-related release so we will finish with same. Terrell was in the earliest vestige of Kool and The Gang named Kool and The Flames, later he was an occasional stand-in with The Manhattans who, in turn, backed him on his two Carnival 45s. In fact, he was supposed to join the group later but was overlooked when the group came across Gerald Alston.
