7″ SALE LIST – February 2015
original USA rare vinyl 45’s
Back again after a busy several months and well earned break, first list for 2015 and very excited to be offering another primo batch of original 7″ singles, as usual focusing on black music styles across the board, late 60’s to early 80’s. From super tough rare collector pieces and some quality lesser knowns right down to the bare essentials, there’s hopefully something here for all. Hand picked by yours truly and lovingly presented for your collecting pleasure.
As usual this is an Oz only list designed with the intention of keeping these babies on home soil. Of course it’s not purely a family labour of love, anything not sold within the first week will be moved on to other international database platforms where everything is guaranteed to move, so take the opportunity while it lasts and don’t sleep, you might never see some of these again, trust me…
Happy hunting : )

Andrew Lewis Band – Midnite Man / Holding On (Richmond – 7053-16) Funky uptempo 1979 Modern Soul dancer; private East Coast label. Unplayed stock, slightly dished like all copies but in favour of play side.. M- $35 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9IEEJmcn-Jg
Black Ivory – What Goes Around Comes Around (Kwanza – KWA 7800) Disco-Break killer, arranged by Philly master Vince Montana (RiP) on this ’74 release from Leroy Burgess and gang… VG++ $15
Crystal Grass – Crystal World (Polydor – PD 15101) Euro Funk mover from ’74; menacing bassline and that immortal blast of brass. Classic B-Boy Disco jam! VG++ $15
Donald Byrd – Black Byrd / Slop Jar Blues (Blue Note – BN-XW212-W) Two great tunes here, edited back to back on a tidy single. Larry Mizell produced gangster two-step space Jazz backed with some more funky stuff in a Be-Bop style.. M- $10
Dyke & The Blazers – Funky Broadway w/ Pt.II (Original Sound – OS-64) Filthy raucous R&B smash from 1967 for this Arizona group, known and loved by many including soul man Wilson Pickett, who sealed it’s classic status with his own cover version. Local Artco label press sells in the thousands. True story.. EX $15
Esquires – Listen To Me (Bunky Inc. – 7750) Milwaukee Group Soul harmony dancer from ’67 on first NYC label. Proper Northern-Crossover pressed on gloriously thick, heavyweight vinyl..
General Crook – Tell Me What’cha Gonna Do (Wand – WND 11270) Clean copy of this soaring brassy ’74 Crossover stepper. Very soulful tune, love it.. EX $15
Isley Brothers – That Lady w/ Pt.II (T-Neck – ZS7 2251) Arguably the best ten bucks anyone could ever spend on anything. Ever. Massive tune, such a classic. Essential.. M- $10 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAfYXc5O3Xo
Keith Sweat – My Mind Is Made Up (Stadium – STA 8003) Once again totally unlisted 7″ version (3:59) of this masterpiece early solo outing from ’85; very nice addition to the small playbox. Super soulful Boogie-Funk stepper with Morales/Munzubai on the mix.. EX $40
Lamont Dozier – Going Back To My Roots w/ Pt.II (Warner Bros – WBS 8363) Monster spiritual Disco classic, huge on so many scenes. Undisputed original version, lovely on the much lesser seen smaller format, too.. ’77’s finest moment? VG++ $15 http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FdEwRm-kSJ0
Phillip & Lloyd Blues Busters – Baby I’m Sorry (Scepter – SCE 12413) Lovely early 70’s Soul stepper with a very nice opening break, possibly untouched by anyone? Copy shows a little wear but a strong player. Tom Moulton on the mix.. VG $10
Randy Brown – Looking For The Real Thing (Chocolate City – CC 3224) Brilliant catchy soulful dancer from ’81 which was quite tricky to turn up at one point. Original company sleeve, nice and crisp.. VG++ $15
Rose Royce – Love Don’t Live Here Anymore (Whitfield – WHI 8712) Needs no introduction, really. Just a heartbreakingly beautiful song and bonafied anthem. Norman Whitfield in his late 70’s prime.. VG++ $10

Timmy Thomas – Why Can’t We Live Together w/ Funky Me (Glades – 1703) Sublime socially conscious Modern Soul from Florida, just incredible. Classic original version backed with an experimental R&B jam. Drum machine breaks? 1972, yes really, the Techno of its time.. VG+ $10
Tony Love – We’re Doing It Together w/ My Feelings Will Never Change (Ham-Sem – 103-4) Georgeous double-sider from LA; deep and luxurious Modern Soul dancers from 1980 exuding finesse.. M- $30
Winstons – Color Him Father w/ Amen Brother (Metromedia – MMS-117) The absolute mother of original breakbeats, history on wax right here. Top side is also a Crossover Soul classic but it’s all about those ferocious drums on this one. Original sleeve swoc, sharp copy.. VG++ $30
Zulema – Wanna Be Where You Are (RCA Victor – PB-10116) Mind blown the first time i ever heard this one. Amazing mid-70s version of the Leon Ware / Jackson 5 classic, as featured on my #DiggersDozen Vol.1 mix from last year.. EX swol $30
Black & Blue – What I Got (Mercury – 73011) Clean white label promo copy of this catchy early 70’s Crossover Soul classic, tough to find in this condition.. EX $200
Brutus – Fun Tonite (Super 7 – SU 101) Unlisted 7″ only release, by far the group’s finest outing. Killer 80’s uptempo soulful mover, very rare. Fluke landing this on the cheap, chances are very slim and demand is growing with exposure.. M- $150

JNB – I’ll Be The One (Glyn – 11-18-50) Soulful Northern-Disco; Al Kent spin! Obscure label 7″ release. Stone mint but like all copies slightly dished, not affecting play.. M- $75
Ray Alexander Techniques – Lets Talk w/ instrumental (Lu Jun – 2001) Burning hot and oh-so soulful early 70’s Latin Funk dancer on the much rarer 7″ format. Monster tune, perfect sound for today.. EX $125
