Artist:

THE ARCADES


Title:

There's Got To Be A Loser


Label:

Triad 502


Condition: M-
Same backing track as Jesse James ‘Are You Gonna Leave Me’ and all loosely based on the Jerry Butler / Impressions song ‘I'm The One Who Loves You’. Goodness knows who the Arcades were, some of these groups formed for just the one attempt at a hit. For what it’s worth the record was manufactured in May 1966 and hailed from Oakland, California (Bay Area).

BESSIE BANKS


Title:

Don't You Worry Baby The Best Is Yet To Come


Label:

Quality 503 (dj)


Condition: M-
A brief excursion by the Canadian Quality label into the States resulted in two releases by the great Bessie Banks. The better of the two, and the rarer, is up for grabs here. Flipside ‘Try To Leave Me If You Can’ is a slow gem, but not included on the promo HOWEVER, it was released on Volt and UK Contempo leaving this great 1976 mover available ONLY on this release.

THE APPRECIATIONS


Title:

It's Better To Cry


Label:

Sport 111


Condition: M-
Despite many Detroit connections, The Appreciations were a North Carolina outfit originally known as the Inspirations and managed by Hattie Leeper. Despite appearing on the famous Detroit label, the track was actually cut at the Arthur Smith Studios in Charlotte, N.C. backed by Moses Dillard and the Tex-Town Review. At this time the Sport label changed to Amy/Mala/Bell distribution with ANOTHER release on this number (Sport 111) by the Four Sonics. This is most likely the reason why this one is much rarer than their first release on Sport ‘She Never Really Loved Me’. A pretty perfect condition copy too!

THE MINTS


Title:

I've Got Style


Label:

Lira 778


Condition: M-
Apart from this being in ‘Mint’ condition, there is little we can tell you about this unknown soul group (they are not the Four Mints) on an unknown record label. What we will say is that some Northern Soul records crop up for sale for less than the price legislates for. Here is such a case, in 28 years we've only had one other copy.

EDDIE BISHOP


Title:

Call Me


Label:

ABC 10799


Condition: M-
Rarer issue copy of this great instrumental of the Tony Hatch tune – and in wonderful condition too. Perhaps Hatch never imagined he would be any kind of ‘soul’, then again his missus was Jackie Trent of ‘You Baby’ fame.

BLUES BAG LTD


Title:

I Am Gonna Love You


Label:

Plumm 5001


Condition: M-
Out of the burgeoning San Antonio soul scene of the sixties. And with the lead vocal of Freddie Hill, a very rare and obscure version of the Intrigues song on Yew records.

EUGENE GAMBLE


Title:

There's Still A Tomorrow


Label:

Feron 114


Condition: VG++
And talk of versions takes us to one of the rarest/most obscure. Actually it is the original version of the Diplomats song on Wand from obscure Texas soul man Eugene Gamble. Covered up at one time by Butch, this is a 45 you will not see again in a hurry.

CAROLE WALLER


Title:

This Love Of Mind


Label:

U.S.A. 863 (dj)


Condition: VG++
So many calls the last time we set-saled this one, that we thought we would give everyone a shot at it. And what a ‘feel good’ stormer this is – started off at the Highland Room before shaking the rafters at Wigan. From the evidence of her other U.S.A. release Ms Waller is white, but it matters not..... this one is perfect for a big revival in the oldies rooms....

BRICE COEFIELD


Title:

Ain't That Right


Label:

Omen 10


Condition: M-
Turns out that this classic is considerably rarer on the green issue copy than the white promo. First one we've had in quite some time in fact. Coefield had quite a career in groups like the Valiants, Untouchables, Electras, Africa..... often in conjunction with Billy Storm, but this was his Northern Soul moment..... on the short-lived Omen label.

THE MOMENTS


Title:

You Said


Label:

Deep 001


Condition: VG++
‘You Said’ by this excellent girl group actually reached monster proportions around 15 years ago but still managed to foil the bootleggers. BUT WAIT!, here is the rarer of the two releases of the song on Bill Linton’s label with the storming ‘Hey Boy’ on the flip (which isn’t on Deep 001). Low start price reflects the fact that there is a tiny, almost undetectable edge crack. Check the soundbite to hear it (not!).

HOLLY ST. JAMES


Title:

That's Not Love


Label:

ABC 10996 (dj)


Condition: M-
Huge at Wigan and everywhere else in ’78 but possibly even bigger today! Very nice vinyl and little minor reconstruction of the ABC logo due to miniscule water damage in the past.

THE VEL-VETS


Title:

I Got To Find Me Somebody


Label:

20th Century-Fox 6676 (dj)


Condition: M-
Searing scorcher of a girl group dancer, rightly deserving of the status ‘classic’. And why oh why would a soul group go with this name given that the Velvelettes were having hits – it’s like similar naivety from Little Ritchie or Jodi Mathis. Anyway, that is one good reason for it’s rarity at least.
