Naughty Boy
7" | 2012 | UK | Original (Kent)
9,99 €*
Release:2012 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
‘Naughty Boy’ was one of the key records in reviving the Northern Soul scene in the 80s and has remained a £1000+ trophy ever since. ‘Get To Steppin’ is another on the fours dancer that has only graced a 100 Club anniversary single prior to this release.

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Phillip Mitchell only cut one single for Spring’s Event subsidiary in 1975 – despite the beautiful ballad ‘There’s Another In My Life’ being an R&B hit, he did not have a follow-up. However, there were three songs recorded at the Brad Shapiro-led Muscle Shoals session, and ‘I’ll See You In Hell First’ was the superb mid-tempo track that lay dormant until compiled on an Ace CD in 1990. It features Mitchell singing at his best on an inspired, self-penned song and is long-overdue a vinyl pressing as originally hoped for.

Jack Ashford's Just Productions
LP | 2019 | UK | Original (Kent)
17,99 €*
Release:2019 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Famed as one of the tight-knit group of musicians the Funk Brothers, who played on the vast majority of Motown’s 60s records, Jack Ashford was the percussionist and vibes player who augmented that infectious beat so successfully.

After his time at Motown he co-founded Pied Piper Productions with Shelley Haims and when that folded in 1967 started his own Just Productions. The infectious beat continued to propel many of their releases but the main songwriters – Jack, Lorraine Chandler and George Rountree – added great new melodies and well-crafted songs and then a big injection of Motor City funk. They unearthed talented singers like Eddie Parker, Sandra Richardson and the Smith Brothers and even employed Jack’s own voice. Parker’s ‘I’m Gone’ and ‘Love You Baby’ are considered the epitome of ampheta-soul by UK devotees, who have adored the records since the early 70s. The Smith Brothers’ output is all high class and their full take of ‘Things Won’t Be The Same’ (which shares the backing track of Sandra Richardson’s ‘After You Give Your All’) is available for the first time. Similarly the new version of Jack Ashford’s recording ‘I’ll Fly To Your Open Arms’, by the Family Brick, debuts here; it is a masterful slice of sophisticated, uptempo Detroit soul.

Then a new singer in the city, Billy Sha-Rae’s ‘The Story Of My Life’ sees its first vinyl outing and the mysterious Ray Gant & Arabian Knights’ reading of ‘Don’t Leave Me Baby’ is considered the ultimate rendition of this superb song.

Al Gardner knew Jack at Sport/Boss Records and his ‘Sweet Baby’ has been a big collector’s item for decades. Also, from the late 60s comes a terrific uptempo version of ‘I Need Your Love (To Satisfy My Soul)’, originally only known as an acetate by the Stylists; it was later cut at a slower pace by Lee Rogers on Premium Stuff.

The LP is rounded off by Jack’s own take on ‘Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart’, a remarkably fine recording that the Smith Brothers would later cover on a Shield 45.

Pretenders, The
Just Be Yourself / It's Everything About You (That I Love)
7" | 2016 | EU | Reissue (Kent)
9,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
The Pretenders were the Carnival label’s main act throughout the 70s and up to 1980. By 1977 producer Joe Evans was embracing the disco era and recorded them on the excellent Kenneth Ruffin song, ‘Just Be Yourself’. Its furious yet solid rhythm and catchy title-line has captivated soul dancers for many years, making the originals expensive and very hard to find now. The flip was their final release, an updated and disco-slanted version of Lee Williams & the Cymbals’ ballad.
Little Johnny Hamilton - Apartment # 9 Cry Like A Baby
Little Johnny Hamilton
Apartment # 9 Cry Like A Baby
7" | 2019 | EU | Original (Kent)
10,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Little Johnnie Hamilton was a 60s Los Angeles soul singer whose records are all hard to find, despite their quality. The searing deep soul slowie ‘Apartment #9’ is a million miles from the funk of ‘The Git Down’, recorded at the same session and issued on the Watts Way label in 1967 as a two-part single. Hamilton wails away his pain on a sparse number abetted by some righteous girl backing singers. ‘Cry Like A Baby’, a release on the one-off Soul Shack label, is a more mainstream offering of much charm, complete with strings.

Peggy Gaines
When The Boy That You Love (Is Loving You) Everybody Knows
7" | 2019 | EU | Original (Kent)
10,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Nashville singer Peggy Gaines had two singles on Ted Jarrett’s Ref-O-Ree label but the best track, the Bob Holmes-written and produced ‘When The Boy That You Love (Is Loving You)’, was only discovered in the mid-90s. Released on CD and a limited 100 Club Anniversary single, it became a guaranteed dancefloor filler and is still in demand, fetching over £100 for that first pressing. The plaintive ballad ‘Everybody Knows’ is making its vinyl debut and will appeal to both Southern and Deep Soul aficionados.

Chuck Jackson - The Best Of The Wand Years
Chuck Jackson
The Best Of The Wand Years
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Kent)
19,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
"Although Chuck Jackson had eight solo LPs on Wand, there has never been a greatest hits compilation derived from all of that fine label’s recordings, until now.

First known to the original mods as a singer of superb ballads such as ‘Any Day Now’ and ‘Tell Him I’m Not Home’, he attracted a loyal following and further releases such as ‘I Keep Forgetting’, ‘Beg Me’ and ‘Hand It Over’ demonstrated the depth of his and Wand’s talents on uptempo tracks. Somewhere in between rhythmically were highlights such as ‘Two Stupid Feet’, an album-only track, and Jackson’s Wand debut that first made his name in the USA, ‘I Don’t Want To Cry’.

By the mid-60s it was back to ballads as a stunning reading of the Skyliners’ ‘Since I Don’t Have You’ charted, followed closely by Goffin and King’s ‘I Need You’. These two sold well so it is surprising that the superb version of the Van McCoy song ‘I Don’t Want To See You Cry’ was never released. Vee-Jay released Jerry Butler’s version on 45 in 1965, but Jackson’s rendition tops even that.

Moving with the times, in 1965 Wand took Chuck to Detroit for ‘Good Things Come To Those Who Wait’ which, like ‘Chains Of Love’, became firm favourites on the early Northern Soul scene, while being largely ignored in the States. Those rare soul fans rekindled their appreciation of all things Chuck in the late 80s when UK Kent Records unearthed unissued Wand recordings. They included ‘What’s With This Loneliness’ and ‘(I’d Be A) Millionaire’ which filled dancefloors with new recruits and older originals who appreciated the easier pace and more soulful delivery of these gems.

The compilation is crowned with a brilliant studio publicity shot of Chuck on the cover which captures both the majesty of his singing and the era.

The Stars Of Modern
7" | 2017 | EU | Original (Kent)
11,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
The fifth in our series of “The Stars Of....” EPs is drawn from the catalogue of Modern Records, UK Kent’s starting point. Of the earlier editions in the series, only “The Stars Of Mirwood” is still available – these limited editions sell out quickly, so don’t delay.

Jackie Day’s ‘Before It’s Too Late’ and Vernon Garrett’s ‘If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time’ earned UK releases in the 60s and became early soul scene classics for British fans.

Mary Love was known and appreciated back then but her Frank Wilson-penned pounder ‘I’ve Gotta Get You Back’ was an import-only job. It was not until the 80s that Johnny Gilliam’s melancholy was appreciated on the big ballad ‘You Make Me Feel Like Someone’.

These four great tracks really work together and the cute 60s-style package makes them a must for Kent collectors.

The Twitch / Enough For Everybody

Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
When the New Orleans soul guys meet a sexy French girl, it ain’t nothin’ but fun. This 1963 recording has been picked up around the world as the epitome of the swinging 60s soul sound. Betty Bibbs is in a similarly light-hearted mood. By 1968 the sound had moved on but good-time music still brings a smile to the party.

Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Here are two big Northern tracks on the funkier edge that are already hugely popular with forward-thinking DJs and dancers. Gruff-voiced Eddie Parker’s ‘Body Chains’ is a very different take on the Prodigal release with an added girl chorus and some appropriate and effective metal chains added by Jack Ashford for percussion. The Pace-Setters’ politically motivated ‘Push On Jesse Jackson’ has crossed over to the main Northern Soul dancefloors and this extended version from a five minutes plus master tape will cause a major stir for dancers and DJs alike.

Can It Be Me / Lay This Burden Down

8,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
There has been a constant demand for Mel Williams’ Modern 45 ‘Can It Be Me’ since it was first spun at the Torch all-nighters in the early 70s. Its classic 60s stomping sound has made it a Northern perennial. The flip is the original instrumental of Mary Love’s ‘Lay This Burden Down’ that was pressed by Modern in 1974 for shady UK dealer Simon Soussain. Instrumentals are back in vogue and this is one of the very best.

Release:2012 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
The laid-back Slyesque soul of Darondo is the flavour of the decade in Modern Soul circles, particularly in Europe and the States. ‘Didn’t I’ is the classic Music City recording that has been featured in films and ads in recent years and ‘Saving My Love’ is the terrific off the wall dancer that Ace recently discovered among those Music City master tapes.
