  • Various - Brunswick Northern Soul (LP)


    From the mod 60s the legendary Brunswick label had the cream of Chicago soul, with the hits by Jackie Wilson and The Chi Lites to go with it. But beyond that, in the cracks and crevices they has some of the greatest and most influential rare soul, and this compilation brings you the best of that. Pressed on 140g black vinyl with new artwork and printed inner sleeve. So we have the classics which defined the genre by the likes of the Adam’s Apples with their Don’t Take It Out On This World, Marvin Smith with the Have More Time, Leroy Taylor with Oh Linda and of course Jackie Wilson’s opener The Who Who Song. We have more recent discoveries such as Tony Drake’s spectacular Suddenly, The Sweetest Thing by Channel 3 Billy Butler’s pounding George Clinton written ’I’ll Bet You’, and Jackie again with the swaying Because Of You. In between we have rare and collectible records by The Artistics, Gene Chandler, Jackie Ross and more. Together original copies of the records contained on this LP would cost you thousands, all gathered here for the price of a round of drinks.

  • Fletcher Darrow - My Young Misery (LP)


    Kent have released two Darrow Fletcher CDs, but he has never had a vinyl LP of his own – of any description. This compilation concentrates on his Chicago years, though it adds a rare demo, Hope For Love, only previously available on a Masterpieces Kent CD. Kent have also included his one-off late-70s version of fellow Chicago-born writers Grey & Hanks No Limit, also originally a Masterpieces track and a now-deleted Kent Select 45; these fetch £100+ on some sales lists. The mid-60s sides speak for themselves. He began his career with the acclaimed soul blast of The Pain Gets A Little Deeper (an Elton John favourite of the time!) and followed up with dancefloor classics My Young Misery, What Good Am I Without You, Infatuation and Gotta Draw The Line. As was common in those days, the hip dance sides were coupled with tender ballads such as Sitting There That Night, Little Girl and My Judgement Day. Those were particularly well received in his Chicago homebase and have been admired by slow-groove scenes like Lowriders in Los Angeles ever since. Darrow s late 60s recordings, though recorded in Chicago, were issued on Los Angeles labels controlled by Universal. By 1971 his producer – stepfather Johnnie Haygood – had reverted to using his own Chicago imprint Genna for the last recording. Compiled by Ady Croasdell.

  • Brown James - Love Power Peace 3LP (LP)

    65,00 45,00

    2014 first release of the triple vinyl LP set as envisioned by James Brown.Includes deluxe jacket with rare photos & liner notes by Alan Leeds.

    Mastered from Brown’s 1971 mixdown reels, unused until now James Brown’s magnum opus! Love Power Peace is the sound of the Godfather with his youngblood J.B.’s (including Bootsy and Catfish Collins) electrifying a crazed Parisian audience on March 8, 1971.

    Sequenced & mixed by Brown himself for a planned triple album, the set was shelved when key band members departed before it could be issued.

    Here, for the first time, are the sides as intended, exactly as delivered by James Brown Productions to his label in 1971. Brown & the J.B.’s rip through recent singles like ”Sex Machine, ” ”Super Bad, ” ”Give It Up or Turnit a Loose” and ”Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved” with a metronomic precision laid down by bassist Bootsy Collins and drummer Jabo Starks. ”Ain’t It Funky Now” – formerly a slow, simmering groove – is transformed into a fast, funky tour de force in which newbie Catfish Collins unleashes one of the most badass guitar solos ever, while a medley of three other Brown standards (”Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag”/”I Got You (I Feel Good)”/”I Got the Feelin’ ”) blazes by faster than the Godfather of Soul’s personal Learjet. Interspersed with just the right amount of slow numbers like ”Georgia on My Mind, ”

    it also includes tracks from the show’s supporting acts that were not included on the 1992 CD (which was a remixed, incomplete show).

  • Cochran Wayne - Same (180 gram, Gatefold) (LP)

    29,00 22,00

    Signed by Chess, Cochran and the Riders released their first LP in 1967. Produced by Abner Spector with sessions at Miami’s Criteria Studios and Muscle Shoals’ Fame Studios, the cleverly-titled ”Wayne Cochran” offered up a mix of popular R&B and soul songs which apparently served as a reflection of the group’s live act. To be honest, if you were looking for something original and ground breaking, this wasn’t the place to start. While Cochran’s performances were quite energetic (having one of the era’s tightest backing bands certainly didn’t hurt), none of the twelve arrangements strayed far from the originals. I’m guessing that most of the things that supposedly made these guys such a killer live act simply couldn’t be replicated on vinyl – not to imply that the collection was bad. It wasn’t. Individually most of the songs were quite good, but it you were familiar with the originals, stripped of Cochran’s in-concert craziness, they simply couldn’t compete.

  • Little Beaver - Party Down (Gold, Ltd) (LP)

    Metallic Gold Vinyl
    Coloured Vinyl, Limited Edition

    Willie Hale a.k.a. Little Beaver (so dubbed as a child because of his prominent front teeth) was one of the extraordinarily talented musicians Henry Stone assembled at his Hialeah, FL-based T.K. Records label and its assorted imprints. Among the artists who recorded for Stone were K.C. & the Sunshine Band, Timmy Thomas, Gwen McCrae, Betty Wright, and Benny Latimore…and backing them on a lot of those records was Hale, laying down mellow ‘n’ funky, jazz-influenced licks on his hollow-body Gibson. Hale’s talent was so distinctive that when Stone finally let Hale step out of the studio shadows to record his own album on the Cat imprint, the effects were immediate and long-lasting. Featuring contributions from Thomas, Wright, Latimore, and Jaco Pastorius (under the name Nelson “Jocko” Padron), 1974’s Party Down scored a #2 hit with its title track and has been repeatedly sampled by latter-day rap artists ranging from People Under the Stairs to Jay Z. himself (the “Party Life” track on his American Gangster album).

    Our Real Gone reissue of this nonstop groove-athon features a fresh remastering by Mike Milchner at SonicVision, and comes in a metallic gold vinyl pressing to honor the gold record Little Beaver has hanging on his wall on the front cover…limited to 1000 copies!.

  • King Ben E. - What Is Soul? (LP)

The most impressive songs are the title track, ”The Record (Baby I Love You)”, and ”There’s No Place to Hide”. For all King lovers a great record to listen once in a while.

  • Simone Nina - Emergency Ward (180 gram, Limited, Coloured) (LP)


    Emergency Ward! (1972) is Nina Simone’s statement on the Vietnam War, and by dealing with matters more spiritual than political, this album aptly reflect the events of the day. The entire first side consists of a 18-minute medley of George Harrison’s ”My Sweet Lord” and a poem by David Nelson called ”Today Is a Killer,” set to music by Simone. This is a very strong, gospel-like performance, sometimes resembling the Capitols’ ”Cool Jerk” with a call-and-response vocal arrangement – one of Simone’s finest moments. It was performed together with the Bethany Baptist Church Junior Choir of South Jamaica, New York. Side two consists of the Lennie Bleecherâ’s Jeremy Wind song ”Poppies” and George Harrison’s ”Isn’t It A Pity”. Tracks 1 and 3 were recorded november 18, 1971 at Fort Dix, and track 2 is recorded at the RCA Studio in New York City.

    Emergency Ward! Is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies transparent red vinyl.

  • Various - Jack Ashford’s Just Productions (LP)



    Famed as one of the tight-knit group of musicians the Funk Brothers, who played on the vast majority of Motown’s 60s records, Jack Ashford was the percussionist and vibes player who augmented that infectious beat so successfully. After his time at Motown he co-founded Pied Piper Productions with Shelley Haims and when that folded in 1967 started his own Just Productions. The infectious beat continued to propel many of their releases but the main songwriters – Jack, Lorraine Chandler and George Rountree – added great new melodies and well-crafted songs and then a big injection of Motor City funk. They unearthed talented singers like Eddie Parker, Sandra Richardson and the Smith Brothers and even employed Jack’s own voice. Parker’s ’I’m Gone’ and ’Love You Baby’ are considered the epitome of ampheta-soul by UK devotees, who have adored the records since the early 70s. The Smith Brothers’ output is all high class and their full take of ’Things Won’t Be The Same’ (which shares the backing track of Sandra Richardson’s ’After You Give Your All’) is available for the first time. Similarly the new version of Jack Ashford’s recording ’I’ll Fly To Your Open Arms’, by the Family Brick, debuts here; it is a masterful slice of sophisticated, uptempo Detroit soul. Then a new singer in the city, Billy Sha-Rae’s ’The Story Of My Life’ sees it’s first vinyl outing and the mysterious Ray Gant & Arabian Knights’ reading of ’Don’t Leave Me Baby’ is considered the ultimate rendition of this superb song. Al Gardner knew Jack at Sport/Boss Records and his ’Sweet Baby’ has been a big collector’s item for decades. Also, from the late 60s comes a terrific uptempo version of ’I Need Your Love (To Satisfy My Soul)’, originally only known as an acetate by the Stylists; it was later cut at a slower pace by Lee Rogers on Premium Stuff. The LP is rounded off by Jack’s own take on ’Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart’, a remarkably fine recording that the Smith Brothers would later cover on a Shield 45.

  • Various - Keeping The Faith 2 – 28 Modern Classics (2LP) (LP)


    This second volume of Keeping The Faith continues where volume one left off. As we have discovered, the Northern Soul scene was originally fuelled by the sound of 1960’s American Soul.

    The tracks on Keeping The Faith 2 concentrate on the period from the late sixties to the late seventies when the shift between traditional and modern soul was taking place. These tracks were released later than that classic mid1960s era from which the blueprint for the Northern Soul sound was first taken, but they emerged before disco introduced too much technology into the mix and the music removed itself completely from the influences of Motown, Stax and Atlantic soul. If you had to track down all the records on this compilation it would cost you hours and hours of endless crate digging, and serious amounts of cash to collect the tunes that we bring you here.

    Keep The Faith!Keeping The Faith 2

    / 21 Modern Soul Classics is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on solid turquoise vinyl. The package includes an insert.
