Image Auction: RSV-1109  Ends: 14/12/2017 18:00
Artist:

JOHN SIMMONS


Title:

Ain't Nothing Like The Love


Label:

Sabrina 106


Condition: M-
Starting of with a Modern Soul rarity from Detroit that we haven’t had for a while. Very well produced, sometimes it’s a head-scratcher as to why records did not succeed. Incidentally, the writer D. Nathan is David Nathan the Blues and Soul scribe.

KELLY & SOUL EXPLOSIONS


Title:

Talking About My Baby's Love


Label:

Dynamite 13206


Condition: M-
One of those records, in this case from Virginia, that was comparatively inexpensive, even 20 years ago, but which we have had only twice ever since. What a superb midtempo cut it is, but then there’s the funk monster ‘Got A Gig On My Back’ on the flip. So, for your delectation we've ‘sound bitten’ that one too.

THE BARRONS


Title:

Walking In The City


Label:

Cobblestone 710 (dj)


Condition: M-
This and Tommy Dent are the two rarities on this New York label. Unlikely to be any of the other ‘soul’ Barrons (or Barons, actually I wouldn't rule out the RCA group) this was covered up for many years as gawd-knows-what (is it important?). However, we've known what it was for over 25 years and have only seen one worn copy before. This one is mint.

THE JELLY BEANS


Title:

You Don't Mean Me No Good


Label:

Eskee 10001


Condition: VG++
A massive revived oldie in recent times of course, but, upon investigation you will find that originals of this classic are seen for sale far less frequently than you might suspect. Check out the internet sources if you don’t believe us. Almost a minter apart from a few light marks.

THE ROTATIONS


Title:

A Changed Man


Label:

Frantic 202


Condition: M-
Such a big one at the casino back in ’76, in those days ‘Put A Dime’ was the ‘other’ Rotations disc and this was the in-demander. No reason at all why this one couldn't do the business as a revival, even the legal reissue isn't common. This is the vinyl original 1967 copy and in rather spanking mint condition as well.

ZILLA MAYES


Title:

All I Want Is You


Label:

Tou-Sea 132 (dj)


Condition: M-
Quite superb New Orleans big beat ballad is brimming with soul. Some of the Crescent City riffs are there but on the whole this is a somewhat different sound for the Louisiana city and the swansong for this particular artist who actually had a substantial gospel career prior to this one, as well as being a noted local deejay. She died in Atlanta at the age of 64 in 1995.

Artist:

WILLIE KENDRICK


Title:

Change Your Ways


Label:

RCA 9212 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Probably as valuable an RCA promo as there is with all the magic of a crunching Pied Piper production. Kendrick first recorded in ’63 for Checker, then a year later for Golden World (surprisingly recorded in New York). His two RCA 45’s represent his final issued recordings.

Title:

Save My Love For A Rainy Day


Label:

Mala 584 (dj)


Condition: M-
Not many groups can murder the Temptations but this version of the Norman Whitfield song actually does just that. And boy, was that thunderous rhythm perfect for all-nighters back in the early seventies. Lead singer Ron Tandy shows Eddie Kendricks how to do a falsetto!

Title:

I Live In A Castle


Label:

Karen 322


Condition: VG++
The rarest record on Ollie McLoughlin’s label! And yes, it’s blue-eyed for sure, but what a production-immense. And catchy as hell. Don’t listen to the soundbite – you’ll never get the tune out of your head! I knew a guy who lived in a castle once.... he was always hosting all-Knighters! Just one tiny scratch incidentally, otherwise mint.

Title:

Hey Girl, Do You Love Me?


Label:

Veep 1213


Condition: VG++
A big Stafford spin, never booted/reissued just waiting to go again – but wait! ..... this is a yellow issue. Have you seen one before? It’s a big ticket as a promo, but a stock copy has to be one of the rarest issues around.

JESSE DAVIS


Title:

Gonna Hang On In There Girl


Label:

Era 3189


Condition: M-
Rare enough on an orange promo but, as an issue, as rare as a Soul Sam R&B booking! In fact, the first one we've ever had. Hailing from ‘zoo town’ (San Diego) Davis is still performing..... you can book him for your retirement ‘do’ if you like!

Title:

(Like A) Nightmare


Label:

V.I.P. 25006


Condition: VG++
As the old cliche goes... you wait ages for a bus and then two come along at the same time! Our second copy of this very rare Motown release in a year, this after having had only one copy in the previous 48 years (don't forget Martin Koppel was looking for rare soul in the States in '69). Low start price means you might get a bargain!
