Title:

You Can't Keep A Good Man Down


Label:

Sweet Rose 0-25


Condition: M-
Absolutely marvellous crossover tune, first aired by your Uncle Tim at Thorne back in 1990 and only ever located by odd copies ever since. Soul to spare on this one – a spellbinding tune. BUT NOW the other side, the ferocious funk of ‘Ain't No Other Way’ is playable too – so we've included the soundbite of that as well.

Title:

You've Been Away


Label:

Kapp 869


Condition: M-
Whilst it is true that Northern Soul is basically the sound of the Motown copyist, some records sound like to other – as is the case with this joyous romp which rightfully deserves the tag ‘classic’. And of course, this one is so much rarer on the black label U.S. issue copy..... And we still don’t know exactly who this guy is!

Title:

Try My Love


Label:

Detroit Sound 503


Condition: VG++
Not the Renfro group but a Detroit group about whom little to nothing is known with that typical heavyweight Motor City backing. Not a record that we've had since the nineties to be honest. 25% label tear on the flipside only.

Title:

The Run Around


Label:

Renfro 62167


Condition: M-
And talking of Renfro (see above item c) here is possibly the rarest record on the famed West Coast label (certainly one of them) and a disc that rarely crops up for sale. Added to which it is a top quality midtempo number.

Title:

Hit & Run


Label:

Revilot 204 WD


Condition: VG++
And of course the flipside to this one, ‘I Miss My Baby’ is the vocal to the above ‘Bari Track’. Just a few light scuffs on this Detroit classic but it plays perfectly – just check the soundbite.

Title:

Oh Mary


Label:

Violet 1053


Condition: VG++
Very rare R&B- fashioned pounder with gospel – styled vocalising was played as a cover-up in the eighties and has hardly ever turned up for sale since. One or two marks on the label but actually the vinyl itself is in better nick.

Title:

The Girl Across The Street


Label:

Dionn 508 WD


Condition: M-
They don’t come much better than this one and the only way to get non-boot peace of mind is with the black and white promo. There is one second jump in the middle of this particular copy, it plays through every time but check the soundbite. A low start price therefore.

Title:

Can't Love Nobody But You


Label:

B&B 1007


Condition: VG+
An out-of-leftfield midtempo beauty known to only a few and offered for sale only rarely on the jolly old internet in over 10 years. Wrap your ears around the soulfulness here and realise that there’s plenty of life left in these old soul records yet!

Title:

What's That (Pt.1)


Label:

Mercury 71747 WD


Condition: M-
As far as I know this is our first-ever copy of this infectious R&B mover. The West Coast blues man’s only excursion onto what might be regarded as a major label met with complete and utter failure with the result that this is a scarce 45 indeed.

Title:

Special Kind Of Woman


Label:

Volt 4042


Condition: M-
On vinyl !! Didn't think it existed – thought it was West Coast styrene only. But no, the regular Stax/Volt issue actually did happen, I thought it was promo-only on vinyl. Very rare, unknown-to-me in fact!

Title:

I'm Gonna Make You Love Me


Label:

Kimtone 1001


Condition: M-
Nothing to do with the Chicago group but for sure the equal of their outings at least. Out of Atlanta but sounds like a midtempo item from New York or Chicago. We need hardly mention how scarce this one is!

Title:

Line And Track


Label:

Hiback 109 WD


Condition: M-
Get yourself a genuine original promo of this current dancefloor packer! Therefore, beware of this track on 'Hirich Music' because it's an ancient boot/reissue pressed for some kind of old and weird American demand.

Title:

Got To Find Another Guy


Label:

Karen 803


Condition: M-
Very rare Detroit midtempo – only our second copy in 28 years of dealing. Obviously this is Sharon McMahon with her name spelled incorrectly, but correctly as the songwriter... Little labels, eh?

CLEETHORPES POSTER


Title:


Label:


Condition: N/A
Every now and then an item of ephemera crops up that is really worthy of notice – as is the case here with this ORIGINAL 1975 poster for the Cleethorpes Pier allnighters. It’s quite possible that you've never seen it before and we've never even seen a repro. It’s in great condition if slightly spoiled by one name on there (!). Poster is of proper poster size i.e. 30x20” , memorabilia is really hard to find.

AUTOGRAPHED copy of one of Northern Soul’s greatest instrumentals – and let’s not under-rate a great version of ‘I Have Faith In You’ on the reverse side.
