Superb unreleased mid-tempo 70's dancer with great vocals, plonking
piano and a catchy hook line that will get more popular now the 45
is on the streets!
Hurt all over
Very good unreleased Deep Soul/Southern Soul
from this legendary Soul singer.
Sam and Bob
& the Soulmen
featuring Doris Badie
Why is leaving you so hard to do
Soul dancer from their very hard to find 'Sabo' Label
LP. This is a different version to the 45 Doris Badie
released on Polydor. The Polydor version has
been played at Crossover Soul events over the last few years BUT
the rarity of this version has meant virtually no one has ever
played this out?
Since you've been gone
Another track from the above
'Sam & Bob' LP and like the top side was previously only
ever available on that LP. This track features Doris Badie
again and is great Deep Soul side!
unreleased goodie from HIT & RUN. This is a great little
70's mover with the great vocals of Willie Hightower and an
extremely catchy hook line that will have you humming it
long after that first spin!
Unreleased (naturally!) this time the
accent is more on a Southern Soul/Funky tip! Has echoes of a
soulful Sly Stone about it?
Let's do something different
sider from the very hard to find 'Bobby Story - Storyteller'
LP from 1982. This is of course Bobby Patterson and this has
been a very popular Modern Soul spin over the last 15 years
or so which can only get more popular now it's widely
available on 45.
If every man had a woman like you
Another track from the above
'Storyteller' LP and like the top side was previously only
ever available on the LP. This track however has hardly been
played at all on any scene and has remained a hidden LP
track for years...until now!
You're gonna lose my love
Yet another unreleased goodie!
This is a great soulful semi-funky
dancer that is certainly well worth a listen?
To hold on to his love
Yet another great release for 'Hit
& Run' and this only made the B Side! Unknown femme vocalist sounds
like she could give Mavis Staples a run for her
money? A lovely, slinky 70's dancer, previously
unreleased of course!
I may not be what you want
Written by Philip Mitchell & Ernie
Shelby this must be the original previously
unreleased version? Released of course by Bobby
Sheen & Mel and Tim respectively, this does give
them both a run for their money?
I'll see you through
At the risk of being repetitive, yet another unreleased goodie!
Love this Southern Soul Shuffler to bits! Give it a listen
and wonder why Ernie didn't get these two tracks on the
streets in 1972?
Another woman involved
This is a
BRILLIANT unreleased 70's dancer that is starting to
pick up spins in the 70's and Crossover venues and
also finding favour on the Northern Soul dance floors
too? MORE than recommended!
Another unreleased goodie that may get over shadowed by the
brilliance of the top side? Don't dismiss it though as it's
a neat 70's dancer with the brilliant vocals of Ms Ingram
Tommy & The
Don't play the role
monster £2000 rarity played by a tiny handful
of jocks due to it's rarity! This is TOMMY TATE on his first
recording from 1966 and what a brilliant 60's Northern Soul
dancer it is too! Grab a listen to the sound file and be
prepared to click on the paypal button straight after!
Essential dancer that can only become more popular?
This side is no slouch either! Quite a
neat little 60's Northern Soul dancer with the ever
brilliant vocals of Tommy Tate.
I had a love
The 4th release for 'Hit & Run' saw another TWO unreleased
tracks seeing the light of day! This is a compelling dancer
from 1973 that has a certain something? Pounding piano
intro, ace scat backing vocals and a hook line you'll be
singing long after the song has finished. Always
been a big fave here at
Waiting for your love
Nice Sweet Soul ballad in a Chi-Lites stylee!
Too many to fight
The 3rd release for this brilliant Soul Label
was TWO unreleased
gems from the legend that is Bobby Sheen! This is a lovely
finger snapping dancer sounding similar to 'I may not be
what you want' and recorded at the same time too! (1972)
I'm not strong enough
Excellent version of this classic Southern Soul song!
Candy from a baby
An incredible unreleased
Northern Soul dancer from 1968 that could grace any of
today's Northern Soul dance floors!
Let's walk down the street together
Another unreleased cut from Doris BUT this time 20 years
later than the top side! Tasty mid-80's stepper with more
than a hint of 'Cracksteppin' about it!
never let you walk alone
What a way to relaunch a legendary Soul Label? Two KILLER
unreleased 70's dancers that have become legendary in
their own right! This has ALL the ingredients to become a
classic. Monster catchy soulful dancer from 1973!
You've never really lived
(Until you've loved someone)
Gives the top side a
real run for it's money! Another brilliant dancer but this
time from 1976! It beggars belief as to why BOTH these cuts
never came out in the first place?
