Image Auction: RSV-1350  Ends: 30/05/2019 18:00
Artist:

MELVIN DAVIS


Title:

It's No News


Label:

Ke Ke 1006


Condition: M-
An early sixties dancer of considerable rarity out of Detroit from one of the city’s many great artists. Stone mint copy is remarkable given the vintage of the vinyl.
  
Reserve Price: £300.00

Current Bid: £307.00

LEE FIELDS


Title:

Take Me Back


Label:

Angel 3 1008


Condition: M-
Takes me back to Cleethorpes 1975 to be honest, when this record was scarcely two years old – but even then, it wasn’t a common, everyday piece. Recent years have seen a big revival of this excellent track of course. Again, great condition.

Artist:

EDITH BROWN


Title:

You Did It


Label:

4 Brothers 403


Condition: M-
Here’s one that crept in under the radar, a red-hot Chicago sixties mover that saw an odd copy (and it was never common) trade hands for very little until the current millennium. Now folks have awoken to the quality and found that it’s virtually non-existent in collections, really rare in fact.

Artist:

JEANETTE HARPER


Title:

Put Me In Your Pocket


Label:

20th Century-Fox 6683 (dj)


Condition: M-
Wonder who this artist turned out to be? Rather like Rubin in our previous auction, she remains a total unknown as far as we are aware. A New York recording and, possibly, rarer than is commonly thought.
  
Reserve Price: £200.00

Current Bid: £0.00

Image Auction: RSV-1354  Ends: 30/05/2019 18:00
Artist:

FRANKIE & THE DAMONS


Title:

Man From Soul


Label:

JCP 1057


Condition: VG+
Worn-but-plays-OK, check the soundbite for confirmation of that fact. The group were from Raleigh, N.C. and Frankie was Frankie Presnell (actually the drummer), fortunately this white four-piece group usually employed a black lead singer.
  
Reserve Price: £150.00

EDWIN STARR


Title:

You're My Mellow


Label:

Ric-Tic 120


Condition: M-
When our Martin Koppel found basically the ‘world stock’ of Ric-Tic’s in Detroit in 1976 this title was not there ever once in over a quarter of a million 45s. We’ve always known this to be a rarity ‘as new’, and that might just be a rare circumstance, in its own right.

Image Auction: RSV-1356  Ends: 30/05/2019 18:00
Artist:

PHIL ORSI And The Little Kings


Title:

Loving On Borrowed Time


Label:

Wise World 62729


Condition: VG++
Also issued as the Vel-vets with the same title on the Number One label and played at the back end of the Wigan Casino years. Difficult to tell which is the first release but for sure, Mr. Orsi looks the nicer!

Image Auction: RSV-1357  Ends: 30/05/2019 18:00
Artist:

THE FASCINATORS


Title:

In Other Words


Label:

Bombay 4502


Condition: VG+
Beautiful doo-wop influenced 1964 group soul from Earl Washington’s Chicago label, a rare disc indeed which rather forgives the condition (check the soundbite). One of those 45s that came to prominence in the post-Wigan era i.e. Stafford, and a scarce 45 indeed.

Image Auction: RSV-1358  Ends: 30/05/2019 18:00
Artist:

ANN SEXTON


Title:

You've Been Gone Too Long


Label:

Impel 101


Condition: M-
Apparently on Seventy-Seven, on the first yellow label and the following orange/black reissue, this sold 90,000 copies. No such situation for the very first local label out of South Carolina (the music publishing was in Florida hence the long-lasting thought that this was a Floridian label, they even spelt Anne and husband Melvin Burton wrong on the song’s credits [Benton]). Whatever the history, this total classic simply has to be in every serious collection.

CYRE


Title:

The More Than Man


Label:

Spectrum 1162


Condition: M-
Very rare 1983 downtempo groover from a Spectrum label that must have been around for 20 years but without any releases for quite a few years prior to this one. You might wait quite a while before you see another. We’ve known of it for 30 years and this is our first copy in all that time.

THE M.V.P.'S


Title:

Turnin' My Heartbeat Up


Label:

Buddah 262 (dj)


Condition: M-
Ignoring the incorrect possessive apostrophe on the group’s name, it turns out that this long-unknown outfit were actually, at one time, the Combinations on the Atlanta label Kimtone. Originally a Blackpool Mecca exclusive, this went on to the greater heights at Wigan (particularly via the ‘This England’ documentary).

Artist:

TIMELESS LEGEND


Title:

Baby Don't Do This To Me


Label:

Black Forest 102115


Condition: VG++
A group from Columbus, Ohio on their first 1975 release – a rarer item than their Dawn-Lite 45 for sure and an excellent modern dancer with a neat ballad flip. As you will observe from the scan there is some water damage on the label, but the actual vinyl is pretty good by comparison.
  
Reserve Price: £400.00

MIND & MATTER


Title:

I'm Under Your Spell / Sunshine Lady


Label:

M&M 5002


Condition: M-
As we remember this record is from Minneapolis, a great 1977 modern double-sider penned by a young Jimmy “Jam” Harris. Take a listen to both sides on the soundbite. Great condition all round.
  
Reserve Price: £300.00

Current Bid: £0.00

THE SEVEN SOULS


Title:

I Still Love You


Label:

Okeh 7289 (dj)


Condition: M-
Back in the heyday of Northern Soul i.e. the seventies, this wasn’t an in-demand, highly rated record at all. Cue the next decade and onwards and it has become one of the most desirous records from the legendary label. Beautiful condition.
  
Reserve Price: £300.00

Current Bid: £355.00

Image Auction: RSV-1364  Ends: 30/05/2019 18:00
Artist:

POOKIE HUDSON


Title:

This Gets To Me


Label:

Jamie 1319 (dj)


Condition: VG++
Lead singer of the famous doo-wop group The Spaniels on one of his infrequent solo outings. Producer Bob Finiz is another that moved from doo-wop to soul and is something of an unheralded Northern Soul hero having produced ‘Girl Across The Street’, the Star-treks ‘Gonna Need Magic’, and many more.
