Our New Breed R&B series of CDs has been running for seventeen years so we thought such a venerable product deserved a fitting vinyl offering.The selection reflects the acceptance of differing R&B styles among its followers; there is a broad ten-year time span between releases. Monster or maybe mammoth tracks include Mike Pedicin’s ‘Burnt Toast And Black Coffee’, Luther Ingram’s ‘Oh Baby Don’t You Weep’, Gladys Bruce’s ‘I’ve Got a Feeling For You Baby’ and the Charmaines’ ‘I Idolize You’. All of those selections are stone-cert floor-fillers and the latter trio are exclusives.Two tracks have yet to make it to the New Breed CD series although they are heavily pencilled-in. Prince Conley’s ‘Hard Times (Every Dog’s Got His Day)’ was recorded for Stax’s first incarnation, Satellite records, around 1961 but didn’t come out until an Ace CD featured it in 1995; it’s a bit of a sleeper! New York street musician Sterling Magee once featured in a U2 video but his mid-60s recordings for Jesse Stone and Al Sears were the real highlights of his career. ‘You’re Supreme’ has only appeared on an Arock Story CD until now. Johnny Gosey’s ‘Double Locks’, tells a terrific tale of rent trouble and, like the Conley and Magee tracks, this is its first waxing. The BB King, Bobby Mitchell, Johnny “Guitar” Watson and Albert Washington tracks are all now looked on as New Breed classics guaranteed dance action when the needle hits.Two more Kent exclusives came out in 2008; Gladys Bruce’s ‘I’ve Got A Feeling For You Baby’ and Barbara Perry’s ‘A Man Is A Mean Thing’ both livened up the burgeoning New Breed scene. The Phillips Sisters’ Ike & Tina-esque ‘Where Did You Stay Last Night’ is one you can actually find on an original release, as is Austin Taylor’s quirky and catchy ‘Why O Why’ – but it’ll cost ya!

‘There Was A Time’ was best known to rare soul fans as ‘Our Love Is Dying’ by Kae Williams, even being given a fake Treasure Island label for some YouTube clips. The truth is it was an unissued tape find that was illicitly passed on to soul aficionados from a US tape copyist. Understandably, given the haunting quality of such a great soul song, various DJs had it cut to acetate and it was named after the most prominent line in the lyrics and accredited to the only name known at the time – producer Kae Williams who owned the Junior label (and produced the song) it was recorded for. The real artist was the obscure Joe Burrell, as revealed by the master tape which was acquired by Jamie Records who ran the major soul labels in the Philadelphia area. We have coupled it with the all-time Northern classic ‘This Gets To Me’ by Pookie Hudson, which is in constant demand and has been unavailable for many years.

‘Baby Cakes’ was an Otis Redding song written for his singer Loretta Williams’ Jotis label release in 1965 and has become a much in-demand Northern Soul record in recent years. About 18 months later Otis reused the song on Maxine Brown when Wand records sent her to Muscle Shoals where she recorded two songs under his tutelage. This super version has never been on 45 before so expect sales to both Maxine and ‘Baby Cakes’ fans.

Since Kent discovered the fabulous unissued Crossover LP in the tape vaults in 2012, ‘(Love Is My) Secret Weapon’ is the one track everyone has wanted on a 45. The CD it appeared on received many plaudits but its appeal was limited to those who like their music on a silver disc. From the opening notes the listener is gripped and the song develops into a modern soul pièce de résistance. The almost-as-good flip is from the same previously unissued source.

Now in his 80s, the great soul singer Tommy Hunt has performed since the doo-wopping 50s and is still appearing all over the world today. His mid-60s Scepter period was his greatest era on record, and from those sessions the big beat ballad ‘New Neighborhood’ has been the most popular of the unissued tracks discovered by Kent in the 80s. ‘I’m Lonely For You’ is a totally unissued recent discovery, debuting here.

Modern soul fans have been singing the praises of the 1975 master tape to Kent CD track ‘Daddy Please Stay Home’ by veteran soul singer Obrey Wilson. Wilson’s sad and regretful vocal is perfect for this mid-tempo groove. Lee Brackett’s bouncy, more jazz-influenced ‘You Get To Me’ is from a couple of years earlier and was also ignored for a release at the time. It is just waiting for an enterprising DJ to programme it into their set for future fame all round.

Those Merced Blue Notes were hep Californians from the San Joaquin Valley whose live shows were a major feature of teenage life in the early 60s there; “music with a beat that just won’t stop” as they quite rightly claimed. Top Mod DJ Lee Miller picked up the previously unissued ‘Sundown’ track from the Merced Blue Notes Ace release and won over that scene’s dancers with the infectious mover. We’ve also included ‘Whole Lotta Something’ on the flip to introduce you personally to these hip music hounds.

Both sides of this vinyl nugget were discovered in the Wand vaults in the 80s. ‘What’s With This Loneliness’ went on to become a crossover champion and its original, very limited pressing now fetches £300 from collectors desperate to possess such soul perfection. This is a debut 7” press for ‘I Can’t Stand To See You Cry’; the definitive reading of the Van McCoy song that even tops Jerry Butler’s original release.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Mirwood Records’ second release was Jackie Lee’s ‘The Duck’, an uptempo soul swinger that became a big hit and established the Mirwood sound. The house team of producer Fred Smith, arranger James Carmichael, songwriter and backing voices arranger Sherlie Matthews, along with contributions from veteran singer/songwriters Bobby Relf and Earl Nelson (Bob & Earl), made for uptempo soul perfection and they played that beat throughout 1965 and 1966. More US chart action occurred for Mirwood with the Olympics and Bob & Earl but much of their superlative work fell on deaf American ears. It was the British soul aficionados of the early 70s who discovered these masterpieces and played them on the burgeoning Northern Soul scene with dancers revelling in the relentless beats, pleading vocals and sassy female backing. Virtually any Jackie Lee track was a worthy contender and although they never repeated his ‘Duck’ success, the company created soul classics like ‘Do The Temptation Walk’, the later master tape discovery ‘Anything You Want (Any Way You Want It)’ and the anthemic ‘Oh My Darlin’’. Bob & Earl’s hottest number was actually the backing track to Bob’s speedy ‘My Little Girl’, discovered as an accidental LP track in the late 60s. Under the same alias, Bobby Garrett, he had another monster sound with ‘I Can’t Get Away’. Sherlie Matthews composed the hit ‘Mine Exclusively’ for the Olympics and, in a similar stomping vein, wrote ‘The Same Old Thing’ for the group. She penned ‘Don’t Pretend’ for mystery trio the Belles, a studio group consisting of herself along with the Holloway sisters Brenda and Patrice, who were moonlighting while under contract at Motown and Capitol, respectively. Another Los Angeles stable under the auspices of Henry “Hank” Graham threw the Performers into the mix with ‘I Can’t Stop You’ and renamed singer Jimmy Conwell as Richard Temple for a 45 that epitomises Northern Soul ‘That Beatin’ Rhythm’; a credo for a cult. More indie productions came from Eddie LaShae with the Sheppards’ redoubtable ‘Stubborn Heart’ and Sonny Knight’s production of Curtis Lee on his own ‘Is She In Your Town’. Ex-Ike Turner sideman Jimmy Thomas landed at Mirwood in 1966 where Bob Relf recorded him on his own ‘Where There’s A Will (There’s A Way)’. Thomas brought the Ikettes along with him; the company switched their name to the Mirettes for the Sherlie Matthews’ song ‘I Wanna Do Everything For You Baby’.14 vital mid-60s dance records which exemplify why Mirwood is a byword for the best of Northern Soul.

Tutti Hill’s ‘When The Going Gets Rough’ was billed on the label of Arock 1012 in 1964 but the vinyl played ‘Whoa Whoa, Baby Take It Slow’. At last this gorgeous mid-tempo dancer from Ron Miller and Lee Porter makes it to 45. The flip is probably the sparsest release ever on a Kent single, being a piano demo, but Garrett Saunders’ magnificent baritone gives the song everything; it is such a pity he did not record more.

Two more recent 70s, modern soul-style discoveries which were issued last year on the “Hotlanta Soul 4” Kent CD. Lorraine Johnson verified the sumptuous vocals on ‘A Love Like Yours’ were indeed hers, although again the author of the song is unknown. Deep Velvet give a much more harmonious take on Ripple’s ‘Complain To The Clouds’, transforming it from a funk growl into a true soul song.

‘This Is My Chance’ lay dormant until the late 90s when it was included on an Ace CD of Excello southern soul material. That series was aimed mainly at ballad fans but Gentry’s mid-tempo charms made it ideal for the modern soul dance scene. The Kent promo 12” issued at the time is now an in-demand piece of vinyl. Mystery surrounds who wrote Shirley Brown’s ‘Even If The Signs Are Wrong’ but this splendid, lilting soul song deserves a vinyl release.

Modernism goes vinyl!

Classic club soul from Bob & Earl, Bessie Banks and Jeb Stuart jostles with jazzy R&B from Floyd White and Clarence Daniels plus some almost-funk from Chuck Higgins and Chet Ivey.Three tracks are released on vinyl for the first time whilst many others are seeing their first reissue on the format. One of these is the super rare ‘Go’ by Little Johnny Hamilton and the Creators, a band that would go on to become 1970s chart-toppers War.

You have to really search through the Doré catalogue to find the soul 45s, but when you do it is hugely rewarding. Its jewels have only been revealed to Northern Soul collectors over time and several are ridiculously scarce; Little Johnny Hamilton’s ‘Keep On Movin’’ and the Swans’ ‘Nitty Gritty City’ remain one-off disc discoveries. Guaranteed dancefloor classics abound, including Rita & the Tiaras’ ‘Gone With The Wind Is My Love’, Little Johnny Hamilton’s ‘Oh How I Love You’ and the Puffs’ ‘I Only Cry Once A Day Now’. The Superbs’ ‘Wind In My Sails’ and Milton James’ mesmeric ‘My Lonely Feeling’ represent the funkier end of the Northern Soul sound, while tracks by Ray Marchand and the Shades Of Jade are subtle mid-tempo soul of the highest quality. Nearly all are rare, expensive and beautiful, while Kenard’s ‘What Did You Gain By That’ is highly imaginative, and the Fidels’ ‘I’m Givin’ You Notice Baby’ is just a classic 60s soul stomper. All together on beautiful 12-inch vinyl, they are irresistible.
