THE APPOINTMENTS


Title:

Funny Feelin' / Keep Away


Label:

Redd Coach 732


Condition: VG++
Two fantastic sides here from a group who were also The Prophets on Stephanye (only, none of the other Prophets are them). In fact, all three Appointments discs are a) rare, and b) very good. The more downtempo ‘Keep Away’ is also worth a listen on our soundbite.

Artist:

THE BARRINO BROTHERS


Title:

Just A Mistake


Label:

TCB 100


Condition: VG+
Although this group were from North Carolina, they recorded only in Detroit and this 1969 release was their first one. A truly outstanding example of what we now call crossover soul. They were picked up by Invictus where they recorded half a dozen 45s and an album before promptly disappearing.

NELSON SANDERS


Title:

Mojo Man / I'm Lonely


Label:

Rambler 3001


Condition: M-
Staying with Detroit – this gritty 1967 release with an infectious rhythm rarely crops up for sale. Add to it the quite superb slowie on the flipside and you have a top-rate collectable whose quality belies its obscurity.
  
Reserve Price: £700.00

Image Auction: RSV-2178  Ends: 25/08/2022 18:00
Artist:

ALMETA LATTIMORE


Title:

These Memories


Label:

Mainstream 5575


Condition: M-
Rare issue copy of this tremendous piece of crossover music, Almeta was Almeta Latimer Roseman and made two or three singles in and around Detroit from 1973 to 1980. None of them got anywhere near this effort in quality, however.

TOMMY BUSH


Title:

I Don't Like It (But I Love You)


Label:

Rika 108


Condition: M-
Our first copy of this Wigan/Cleethorpes mid-seventies monster spin in a long, long, time. Was bootlegged at the time, but the light green imprint is totally unconvincing. Got a feeling that this 45 is a lot rarer than folks think.

Title:

I'm Coming Home


Label:

Kapp 802 (dj)


Condition: M-
Knockout Detroit soul yet again on this auction. Two great sides from a girl who had one brief period in the studio with Pied Piper Productions resulting in one issued 45 (which must have sold zero judging by the rarity of the stock copy, and which amazingly also came out in Canada) and half a dozen decent unissued sides.

DON AND JUAN


Title:

The Heartbreaking Truth


Label:

Mala 509 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Outstanding Big City Soul from this duo who were really Claude Johnson and Roland Trone, interestingly Johnson was also in The Dealers on Big Bunny. Actually, this one got quite a few plays at Stafford – brilliant beat ballad.
  
Reserve Price: £200.00

Current Bid: £0.00

THE PARLIAMENTS


Title:

Don't Be Sore At Me


Label:

Revilot 211 (dj)


Condition: VG++
You might be surprised to see this one in an auction scenario. For sure this sublime piece of Motor City soul has all it takes to be up there as an auction item, but it isn’t rare. HOLD ON… however, the promo offered here certainly is scarce and we’ve had very few copies over the years.

SAM & KITTY


Title:

I've Got Something Good


Label:

Four Brothers 452


Condition: VG++
The rarest format – this is the original local release before Atlantic picked it up for national distribution. This yellow issue also has the added bonus of being a totally different colour to the first bootleg. Would be mint apart from one 10mm scuff that doesn’t sound (see soundbite).

Artist:

JACQUELINE JONES


Title:

A Frown On My Face


Label:

Loadstone 3953


Condition: M-
The talent in soul music runs very deep as we have often seen. Possibly because there are so many really great voices and musicians. A case in point is this release from Miss Jacqueline Jones, a West Coast artist who recorded a few times in the Bay Area and then vanished. You won’t hear many better non-hit soul records than this one for sure!

Image Auction: RSV-2185  Ends: 25/08/2022 18:00
Artist:

JOANIE SOMMERS


Title:

Don't Pity Me


Label:

Warner Bros. 5629 (dj)


Condition: VG++
No-one could accuse Joanie Summers of being an obscure act as she made quite a number of singles and albums even appearing as a minor actress in television’s ’77 Sunset Strip’. She did come up with one or two rarities however, of which ‘Don’t Pity Me’ is easily the most popular. Guaranteed floorfiller.

ANTHONY BURNS


Title:

Doing What You Need To Do


Label:

Castleway 2933


Condition: M-
Powerful piece of James Brown-styled Deep Funk that has enough about it to appeal to the upfront faction on the Northern scene. An obscure piece of soul from Burlington, North Carolina that has to be pretty tricky to locate.
  
Reserve Price: £150.00

Current Bid: £0.00

Artist:

BOBBY REED


Title:

You Are


Label:

Clay Town 17700 (dj)


Condition: M-
The original release of this neat midtempo item on the local Washington label is rarer than folks think. It must be really rare on the white promo copy – in fact this is the only one we’ve ever seen (although it doesn’t state promo, it undoubtedly is).
  
Reserve Price: £200.00

ELOISE LAWS


Title:

Love Factory


Label:

Music Merchant 1013 (dj)


Condition: M-
Styrene promo of this Blackpool Mecca classic. Seems a little unfair to list as VG++ as it is basically a minter with a few tiny marks. A styrene copy with no cue burn as well.
  
Reserve Price: £200.00

TRADE MARTIN


Title:

She Put The Hurt On Me


Label:

Stallion 1003


Condition: VG++
Basically, a good condition copy of this seventies biggie but with a little of that ‘greying’ that can be found on records that have been around the UK scene. At an all-nighter this 45 is mint!
  
Reserve Price: £200.00

Current Bid: £0.00

Image Auction: RSV-2190  Ends: 25/08/2022 18:00
Artist:

ZENOBIA BONNER


Title:

All Alone


Label:

Accident 101


Condition: VG++
The unusually named Zenobia came up with this one storming mover, that recalls the style and tempo of ‘I Don’t Need No Doctor’ (but is much rarer). Rather an unfortunate tagline to the obscure label “If It’s A Hit, It’s By Accident” (!).

ENCHANTMENTS


Title:

I'm In Love With Your Daughter


Label:

Faro 620 (dj)


Condition: M-
One of the biggest spins of the last 20 years and one which would mix into the above Zenobia Bonner just perfectly. This 1965 stormer from L.A.’s East Side simply takes no prisoners!
  
Reserve Price: £400.00

THE ELEMENTS


Title:

Save It For A Rainy Day


Label:

Big Street 3603


Condition: M-
This auction’s sweet ballad winner is on the New York Big Street label and would appear to be the only release on the logo. An unknown group from 1977 who would appear to be unrelated to the many others by the name. Exquisite harmonies here – if ballads are your thing, give it a listen.
