David NowellStory Of Northern Soul – A Definitive History Of The Dance Scene That Refuses To Die (paperback) ... Book
Cherry Red (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $13.99 19.95
A well-done book on one of the coolest, grooviest, hippest music scenes ever – the huge Northern Soul scene in the UK – which began as a hotbed for lovers of American soul back in the 60s, and continues to burn brightly all these many years later! If you think you love soul music, these cats may well have you beat – because right from the start, the Northern Soul scene was totally obsessive – filled with fans who would scour the planet in search of rare and unusual records, and dance through the night at the famous clubs and parties that kept the scene going over all the years! The book is penned by David Nowell, a member of that scene in its early years – and is filled with historical information, details on the clubs, personal stories of some key members, and a look at the shifting world of Northern Soul, and the way it keeps on evolving over the decades. The book has a small section of photos in the middle, lots of sidebar lists of soul cuts and rarities, and a whopping 330 pages on the subject! Book

VariousChess Northern Soul Vol 2 (7 x 7 inch single box set – with download) ... 7-inch
Chess/Universal (UK), 1960s. New Copy 7 x 7 Inch ... $94.99
Socking soul from the legendary Chess Records – presented in a format that always served the label best! This very limited box features seven 45s – each of which contains two great grooves from Chess – the kind of upbeat, uptempo soul that made the Chicago scene of the 60s second only to Detroit for groovers this great! Yet we almost like this material even better than the sounds of Motown – as Chess always had something interesting going on – some compelling arrangements, unusual touches, and a range of influences that really show up on the music within – a range of cuts that include some of our favorite 45s from the legendary label. Titles include "A Whole New Plan" by Jo Ann Garrett, "A Love Reputation" by Denise LaSalle, "My Square" by Jackie Ross, "You Got Me Baby" by Bobby McClure, "You Were Just Foolin Me" by Terry Callier, "Make It Last" by The Vibrations, "Two In The Morning" by Spooner's Crowd, "More Love That's What We Need" by The Gospel Classics, "Head Over Heels" by Greg Perry, "A Mighty Good Lover" by The Vashonettes, "Wade In The Water" by Marlena Shaw, "Must I Holler" by Jamo Thomas, and "Why Can't I Be Your Man" by The Chessmen. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousDJ Andy Smith's Jam Up Twist USA – R&B Rockers, Rockabilly, Northern Soul, & Sleazy Shakers ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
A great US take on the Jam Up Twist sound of DJ Andy Smith – the groove he explored on a previous compilation in the UK – now served up here in a different lineup for the states! The music is a mad mix of R&B, jump blues, rockabilly, and other raw sounds from the tail end of the 50s – very much like the sort of territory that Keb Darge has explored on his excellent sets with Little Edith – and the kind of sounds that go way way beyond well-known hits from the period! Smith digs very deep in the crates, and gets some help with selections from Deano Sounds as well – on this smoking set that includes "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "What's My Chances" by Chuck Flamingo, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, "Doing All Right" by Eddie Cash, "Swingin & Surfin" by Les Brown Jr, "Ever Again" by Gene Woodbury, "High School Caesar" by Reggie Perkins, "Monkey's Uncle" by Ray Sharpe, and "Pack Shack & Stack" by Billy Nelson.

VariousKing Northern Soul ... CD
King/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Excellent rare soul from King Records – and almost none of it reissued since it was originally on 45s! King is more famously known as the home of James Brown during the 60s – but this set shows what a wealth of great work was going on at the label at the same time, and even though we've been digging for records for years, we have to admit that we've really never seen most of these singles. Some of the tracks are funky, some are smoother and more uptown, and the bulk of the material is appealing to any fan of 60s northern soul. Titles include "Try Me For Your New Love" by Junior McCants, "Why Am I Crying" by Shirley Wahls, "Baby You've Got Me" by The Emeralds, "I Won't Have It" by The King Pins, "Prove It" by Pat Lundy, "Never Find A Love Like Mine" by The Brownettes, "You Got Me Diggin You" by Roosevelt Matthews & The Upsetters, "Bing Bong Goes My Heart" by The Determinations, "I Enjoy Being Loved By You" by The Fabulous Denos, "These Tears" by Mary Johnson, "Why, Why, Why" by Mill Evans, "I'm Slowly Molding" by Cody Black, and "Saving My Love For My Baby" by Marva Whitney.

VariousMove On Up – The Very Best Of Northern Soul (3CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), Late 60s. Used 3CD ... $22.99
3CDs, 75 songs, and a set list that definitely lives up to the title – a collection that not only brings forth the best of Northern Soul from the glory days of the 60s, but also features lots of tracks from that time that have only been discovered in recent years too! Northern Soul isn't just a static concept on UK dancefloors – and instead has been driven by decades of record collectors and DJs with an ever-shifting ear for a groove – one that's lead to a nicely expansive version of the music that's really continued to thrill us with collections like this. The whole thing's way more than just your usual collection of 60s soul – and is filled with upbeat groovers that include "I Got A Feeling" by Barbara Randolph, "Gotta Find Me Somebody" by The Vel-Vets, "Blowing My Mind To Pieces" by Bob Relf, "Hand It Over" Chuck Jackson, "The Night" by Frankie Valli, "Soul Galore" by Jackie Wilson, "Every Time I See You I Go Wild" by JJ Barnes, "Heaven Must Have Sent You" by The Elgins, "Turning My Heartbeat Up" by The MVPs, "Do I Love You" by Frank Wilson, "What Can I Do" by George Kirby, "Shoes" by Bobby Bland, "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" by Rita & The Tiaras, "Landslide" by Tony Clarke, "Festival Time" by San Remo Golden Strings, "You Didn't Say A Word" by Yvonne Baker, "Seven Days Too Long" by Chuck Wood, and lots lots more!

VariousNorthern & Rare Soul Collector – Together For The First Time – Originally Unreleased ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
A stunning set of rare soul from the glory days of the Northern Soul years – and even more amazing because none of these tunes were ever issued at the time! Yet these aren't second-hand cuts that have lain in the vaults, nor the dregs of good recording sessions – and instead, these are killer tracks that finally saw the light of day on various reissues over the decades – years after their conception, but with enough space to have gotten them plenty of spins on later generations of Northern Soul dancefloors. The work is all wonderful – really top-shelf material that's right up there with Detroit or Philly classics – often recorded by artists you'll know from other great singles too. Titles include "Push A Little Harder" by The Metros, "Honey Please Stay" by United Four, "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" by Lonnie Youngblood, "I Wish You The World Of Happiness" by Shirley Turner, "I'm Not Afraid" by Sharon Scott, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "The Magic Touch" by Melba Moore, "It's Torture" by Maxine Brown, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Hey Girl" by Porgy & The Monarchs.

VariousNorthern Monsters – 24 Of The Biggest Sounds Ever on The Northern Soul Scene From Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
They're not kidding about the "monsters" in the title here – as the CD is easily one of the best Northern Soul collections we've heard in years – filled with all-great tracks that really live up to the promise on the cover! The music is excellent, the sound quality great, and most of the tracks here are under-compiled gems that sparkle together beautifully in the company of this top-shelf collection – an great batch of all-winners that is one of the best illustrations of the Northern sound at its best we could ever hope to find! Ace provides full notes on each track – as well as label scans too – and the whole thing's a very welcome antidote to some of the shabbier Northern Soul collections on the market. Titles include "Too Darn Soulful" by Morris Chestnut, "Lighten Up Baby" by Ty Karim, "Nobody But You" by The Wooden Nickels, "You Hit Me" by Alice Clark, "If The Shoe Fits" by Lou Courtney, "I'm Gonna Love You A Long Long Time" by Patti & The Emblems, "Time's A Wasting" by The Fuller Brothers, "The Joker" by Milestones & Littler Leroy, "I'll Be There" by The Gems, "Just Ask Me" by Lenis Guess, "Stronger Than Her Love" by The Flirtations, "Don't Pretend" by The Belles, "We Must Be Doin Something Right" by Joan Moody, and "Wash & Wear Love" by Lynn Varnado.

VariousNorthern Soul – Keep The Faith – 61 Allniter Classics (3CD set) ... CD
Sony (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
A mighty nice collection of Northern Soul gems – all pulled from the vaults of Columbia, CBS, Epic, Okeh, RCA, and related labels – and stuffed together in a package that's a hell of a bargain for all these rare tracks! And when we say "stuffed", we don't mean that the tracks are crammed thoughtlessly together – because there's a really wonderful sense of timing to the whole thing – a groove that starts out strong, and keeps going long! There's also a nicely updated feel to the selections, too – lots of tracks you wouldn't have found on a 60s soul collection 20 years back – partly because the cuts have only been uncovered in recent years, or because they fit well into the ever-evolving understanding of Northern Soul. 61 tracks in all – and titles include "Paris Blues" by Tony Middleton, "Temptation Is Calling My Name" by Lee David, "Moonlight Music & You" by Laura Greene, "I'm Not Ready" by Ujima, "Everybody's Going To The Love-In" by Bob Brady & The Con-Chords, "I'll Always Need You" by Dean Courtney, "That's What I Want To Know" by James Carr, "I Don't Want To Talk About It" by Nancy Ames, "He's Coming Home" by Beverly Ann, "I Still Love You" by Seven Souls, and "Born A Loser" by Don Ray.

VariousNorthern Soul Dreams ... CD
Essential, Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
Quite an unusual set of Northern Soul material – as the set moves past the iconic sounds of cities like Detroit or Chicago, the usual hotbeds for the music – and widens the scope to pull together tracks that might have been missed otherwise – from indie producers like Dee Erwin, Ed Townshend, Fred Bridges, George Kerr, and Paul Kyser! These cats all have plenty of experience in the studio – and may be better-known for work from earlier or (mostly) later years – but are here represented by some great obscure cuts they recorded in a variety of settings – music that may not carry the club history or label imprint of other Northern Soul collections, but which definitely lives up to the groove at a musical level. Titles include "I Know That He Loves Me" by Theola Kilgore, "Summer's Gone" by Eddie Day & The Nitetimers, "The Airplane Song (inst)" by George Kerr, "I Can't Turn You Loose" by Jimmy Chandler, "My Ship Is Coming In" by The Pace Setters, "A Dream" by Roy Butler, "Be Happy" by Sugar Pie DeSanto, "Bottomless Pit" by Chuck & The Daylighters, "You Won't Say Nothing" by Tamala Lewis, "What Happened To Yesterday" by Al Scott, "Wonderful Night" by Candace Love, "Footsteps" by The Creations, "Where Have You Been" by The Whispers, "Accidental Love" by Roy Handy, "I Can't Turn You Loose" by Jimmy Chandler, and "Wrong Wrong Wrong" by Ray & Dave.

VariousNorthern Soul Weekender – The Original Sound Of Northern Soul ... CD
Charly (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Socking soul from the 60s and early 70s – brought together here in a mighty tribute to the lasting power of the Northern Soul scene in the UK! Other volumes of this collection have focused on sounds that played big in British clubs in the early days of the scene – but this set showcases cuts that have gotten a lot of play in more recent years – including some that weren't even discovered back in the day, and have taken years to finally get their due from soul fans! The groove is upbeat – with a vibe that begins in Motown, but soon takes off into all of the great new territory the scene has embraced over the years – including some strands of deep soul that are especially welcome here. Titles include "I Hurt On The Other Side" by Sidney Barnes, "You'll Always Be In Style" by The Adlibs, "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" by Rita & The Tiaras, "I Still Love You" by Ann Sexton, "Lonely For You Baby" by Sam Dees, "Just Loving You" by Ruby Andrews, "Baby" by Ellie Greenwich, "If You Ask Me" by Jerry Williams, "Just Another Heartache" by Little Richie, "Under Your Powerful Love" by Joe Tex, "I'm A Big Man" by Big Daddy Rogers, "Better" by Ruby Winters, and "Baby What Has Happened To Our Love" by The Ringleaders.

VariousNorthern Soul's Classiest Rarities ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The "classiest" tag in the title might be a bit misleading – as these tunes are down and dirty Northern soul, not some toneyed-up work for the country club set – but they're all united by a strong approach to their work, and a sense of professionalism that really makes the tracks sparkle, even though most of them are quite obscure! In fact, a number of tunes on the set were only recently unearthed by the folks at Ace while going through tapes to prepare other reissues – collected here together as a rich representation of the untapped genius that lies in the vaults of many 60s soul labels. There's a total of 24 tunes on the CD – and titles include "Yes I'm In Love" by Unique Blend, "Why Would You Blow It" by Claude Huey, "I've Got To Keep Movin" by Charles Lamonte & The Extremes, "Strange Neighbors" by The Imaginations, "I Wouldn't Change A Thing About You" by Johnny Wyatt, "Raining Teardrops" by The Rockmasters, "Cards On The Table" by The Diplomats, "Tell Me Baby" by Karmello Brooks, "Ain't No Danger" by Clifford Curry, and "This Love That I'm Giving You" by The Joytones.

Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
Classy, but never snoozy – as the set's got a top-shelf assortment of Northern Soul dancefloor numbers all the way through! As with the first volume, this batch of tunes is a really well-done collection – one that gets way past all the dodgy compilations and Northern Soul bootlegs on the market, and which features some incredibly rare tunes and previously unissued numbers – all hand-picked for the set by Ace/Kent's in-house soul maestro Ady Croasdell! A few of the names on the collection are familiar ones, but they're represented here by numbers that we'd never heard before – and the bulk of the CD features tunes by artists that are even lesser-known, even to fans of the genre. 24 tracks in all, with notes on every tune by Ady – and titles that include "I Finally Got Wise" by Billy Keen, "It Ain't' What I Do" by Peggy Paxton, "Faith & Understanding" by The Magicians, "Two Lovers" by The Voice Masters, "I'm Waiting" by Bill Bush, "I Can't Speak" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "How I Need Your Love" by The Extremes, "Just A Bad Thing" by Janice Christian, "Dining In Chinatown" by Jennifer Wells, "You Got What You Want" by The Angels, "Would You Believe" by William Hunt, "Sea Shells" by The Charmells, "She Could Love Me" by The Athens Rogues, and "Jerk Baby Jerk" by Carl Burnett & The Hustlers.

VariousOkeh – A Northern Soul Obsession – Vol 1 ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A definite obsession for fans of Northern Soul in the 60s – the mighty Okeh label, an imprint of Columbia Records that was reactivated for a few key years, to become a hotbed of Chicago soul! Okeh's efforts were often headed by legendary producer Carl Davis – who had an amazing ear not just for important new artists, but also for finding ways to change up the groove in the hippest way possible – often with some of the more sophisticated touches that represent just how special Chicago soul was at the time, in ways that are very different even from nearby Detroit! Some Okeh artists scored big, but the label also recorded many more who never hit the charts – but who turned out some incredible singles that are still the gold standard for collectors. Lots of that work is featured here – in a great package that's overflowing with rare tracks, presented with detailed notes as well. Titles on this first volume include "You're Gonna Make Me love You" by Sandi Shelton, "I'm Coming To Your Rescue" by the Triumphs, "I Still Love You" by the Seven Souls, "Bring It Back Home" by the Chymes, "Somebody's Always Trying" by Ted Taylor, "You Don't Want Me No More" by Major Lance, "This Heart Of Mine" by The Artistics, "So Glad Your Love Don't Change" by The Little Foxes, "He Who Picks A Rose" by The Carstairs, "I'm So Afraid" by The Opals, "A Quitter Never Wins" by Larry Williams & Johnny Watson, and "I Can Do It" by the Autographs.

VariousPied Piper – The Pinnacle Of Detroit Northern Soul ... LP
Pied Piper/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Stunning soul from the Detroit underground of the late 60s – a treasure trove of gems that literally grew up in the shadows of Motown – given that the work here was spearheaded by the Pied Piper Productions team of Jack Ashford, Mike Terry, Joe Hunter and Herbie Williams of the legendary Funk Brothers! There's a tighter, more energetic vibe to the material than on some of the more grandly soaring sounds of Detroit's bigger hits of the time – and we really love the unfussy, driving soul essence at play here – a gritty, groovy, and really hard-burning sound that makes just about every number here a gem – and a real change, if you only know the bigger hits from Motown! The track selection is wonderful – and even includes a number of never-issued tracks from the time, plus singles issued on Kapp and some smaller labels too. Titles include "Just Can't Leave You" by Tony Hester, "I Can't Hold On" by Lorraine Chandler, "We Go Together (alt with rap intro)" by The Cavaliers, "Voo Doo Madamoiselle" by September Jones, "More Than A Memory" by Nancy Wilcox, "That's When I Need You" by Freddy Butler, "This Heart Is Lonely" by Rose Batiste, "I'm Not Built That Way" by The Hesitations, You Only Live Twice (original take)" by Lorrane Chandler, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Set My Herat At Ease" by Mikki Farrow.

VariousRare Collectable & Soulful Vol 2 – Northern Soul's Holy Grail ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1997. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A long-overdue look at the rich soul legacy of RCA Records in the 60s – a label that may well be known for its big pop hits, or its achievements in Nashville – but also a surprising powerhouse of of upbeat, uptempo soul when it came to their singles! For some special reason, RCA really seemed to allow a hell of a lot of creative freedom in the soul department – unlike their country, which was often very strictly controlled in terms of production – and the result is a huge amount of extremely creative, extremely groovy, and pretty damn soulful tracks that come together beautifully on this set! Many singles were pressed in small numbers, and hardly ever circulated or promoted at the time – which means that the whole thing definitely lives up to the "rare collectable" in the title – and the set also features some tracks that appear here for the first time ever! Titles on this second volume include "Dance Little Girl" by The Cavaliers, "Love Is So Wonderful" by Dean Courtney, "Movin' Too Slow" by The Exciters, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "My Imagination" by The Metros, "Can't Let You Go" by The Geminis, "American Dollar" by Willie Kendrick, and lots lots more.

Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the greatest showcases for American soul music in the UK – an important 70s dancefloor that was responsible for breaking countless underground cuts, and ensuring that they'd live a long life for decades – thanks to the power of the Wigan Casino DJs! The music here is mostly from the late 60s, but didn't get big exposure until a few years later – when UK Northern Soul collectors were digging for rare American tracks, and brought them across the Atlantic for big play to a fresh audience. Some of the best cuts from those years are collected here – in a sweet set that includes "What" by Judy Street, "Night Owl" by Bobby Paris, "Turnin My Heartbeat Up" by The MVPs, "You Don't Know Where Your Interest Lies" by Dana Valery, "So Is The Sun" by The World Column, "Ton Of Dynamite" by Frankie Crocker, "You Didn't Say A Word" by Yvonne Baker, "I'll Always Need You" by Dean Courtney, "Girl Don't Make Me Wait" by Bunny Sigler, "I'm Com'Un Home In The Morn'Un" by Lou Pride, "Long After Tonight Is All Over" by Jimmy Radcliffe, "Time Will Pass You By" by Tobi Legend, and "I Can't Help Loving You" by Paul Anka.

Leon HaywoodSoul Cargo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fat Fish/Essential, 1966. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
Excellent early work by Leon Haywood – recorded way back in the mid 60s, when he was knocking around the LA indie scene with a very soulful groove! Back in those years, Leon wasn't singing as much, just playing piano and organ in a mixture of soul and jazz instrumental modes – all hard-stepping with a very strong northern soul groove, and some of the heaviest production ever to come out of the west coast in the 60s! The whole album's a killer – extremely grooving, and with a blend of styles that keeps things fresh all the way through. Titles include "Ray's Theme", "Soul Cargo", "Fat Fish", "The Sidewinder", "Spice Of The Blues", "River's Invitation", and "The Preacher". CD features bonus tracks – including "Baby Reconsider", "Hey Hey Hey", "Skate A While", and "Ever Since You Were Sweet Sixteen". CD

BBE (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 x 7" (pic cover)... $24.99 26.98
A treasure trove of deep soul, Northern groovers, and funky numbers from the mighty Jean Wells – easily one of the most accomplished soul singers of her time! Jean's got a voice that knocks it right out of the park, right away – a style that burns deeply on the mellow cuts, and soars to the heavens on the groovers – and she works here with impeccable production from Clyde Otis, who always seems to know just the right way to bring out the best in a singer like Wells. But even more notable is the fact that Jean wrote a good number of tunes here herself – quite unusual for a female soul singer of her generation – and an aspect that makes the collection especially noteworthy as a documents of the deep talents shown by Wells while recording these sides for the Calla label. This limited edition triple 7" single package is mighty great – with a slipcover that contains notes on the music, and a total of 6 tracks that include "What Have I Got To Lose", "Have A Little Mercy", "With My Love & What You've Got", "Take Time To Make Time For Me", "He Ain't Doing Bad", and "Somebody's Been Loving You". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Various6T's Rhythm N' Soul Society – In The Beginning ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Mod jazz and socking soul – a wicked little collection of 60s groovers, put together by the folks at London's 6T's Rhythm & Soul Society! The sound here is quite different than that of compilations by UK Northern Soul clubs and DJs – with an overall groove that's rougher, deeper, and more open to tracks from a variety of different genres. If we had to come up with our own tag, we'd almost call the sound here "early mod" – that keen British appreciation of all things American soul and R&B, but in the years before that love of the music had become too easily stereotyped. But whatever the genre, the set's a really great one – with a sweet Soul Cargo sort of groove that's presented with high fidelity and great notes on the club and its music! Titles include "Two Stupid Feet" by Chuck Jackson, "Zig Zag Lightning" by Little Johnny Taylor, "All About My Girl" by Jimmy McGriff, "Tell Me What You're Gonna Do" by James Brown, "Opportunity" by The Jewels, "Forget About Me" by Carolyn Crawford, "It's Me" by Johnny Copeland, "He's A Lover" by Tutti Hill, "Chica Boo" by Googie Rene Combo, and "The Hoochi Coochi Coo" by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters.

The set's self-described as "a collection of shameless oldies played in the golden era of Northern Soul" – but that's only part of the picture, as it's got a lot more to offer than that. The CD features 20 tracks that broke big at the Wigan Casino – home to some of the most fervent action on the UK soul scene back in the late 60s – and as such, it's kind of an "instant classics" set that shows how even rare numbers could become super-huge with the UK soul dance set! Titles include "Little Miss Soul" by The Lovettes, "Till You Give In" by Bobby Patterson, "Sweet Sherry" by JJ Barnes, "It's A Woman's World" by The Gypsies, "Baby Reconsider" by Leon Haywood, "With My Love & What You've Got" by Jean Wells, "Mother Of Shame" by Loleatta Holloway, "Running Away From Love" by Skip Mahoney & The Casuals, "Ain't That Good Enough" by John Edwards, "Baby I Need You" by Lorraine & The Delights, and "Can It Be Me" by Mel Williams.

VariousDave Hamilton's Detroit Dancers Vol 3 – The Soul Providers ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
An incredible collection of rare Detroit soul – a good portion of which has never been issued before! As with other volumes in this series, the tunes here come from the vaults of Motor City producer Dave Hamilton – and they represent some tremendous work done in the shadow of Motown during the mid 60s! Like some of the best Detroit indie work of the time, the tracks here have a great mix of the rough and the smooth – vocals that are often earthy, set to backings that are tight, upbeat, and great for the dancefloor – especially if you've got an ear for Northern Soul! Hamilton's life, talents, and music are well explored in the notes – as are the lesser-known artists on the set – and the package features 24 tracks that include "Sweet It Out In The Shed" and "The Smile On Your Face" by Little Anne, "Until The End Of Time" by The Additions, "True True Love" by Tobi Lark, "It Takes A Lot Of Living" by The Future Kind, "I Love The Way You Do" by JT Rhythm, "Honest I Do" by The Tokays, "I Mean You Girl" by Richard Coombs, "Goodness" by OC Tolbert, "Side By Side" by The Ebonettes, and "The Bad Things You Said To Me" by The Barrino Brothers.

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – The Tragar & Note Labels ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/1970s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
A double-length collection of work from two obscure Atlanta soul labels – the Tragar and Note imprints, both run by local producer Jesse Jones! Back in the day, Atlanta wasn't nearly as big of an outlet for soul records as it's become in recent years – so Jones' labels were key in showcasing under-exposed local talent in the city, a range of soul groups, solo singers, and funk combos – all produced here with a really fresh sound! Nearly every track here is super-obscure – and there's few southern soul cliches to get in the way of the music – no overdone blues, no Hotlanta disco, no Muscle Shoals copies – just honest-to-goodness indie soul at its best – full of life, vitality, and personality – all presented with the usual deep-digging Numero look at the artists in the notes. The package features a whopping 50 tracks in all – one of the biggest Numero collections so far – and together, they really tell the tale of this crucially overlooked scene – a key link between more familiar southern styles and rising Northern modes, all with a personality of its own. Titles include "All Because of You" and "Down In The Country" by Tee Fletcher, "The Hump" and "Tipping Strings" by The Knights, "Somebody Got A Help Me" and "Love is So Mean" by Richard Cook, "I'll Show You With Love" by Young Divines, "Watch The Dog That Bring The Bone" by Sandy Gaye, "Messing Around" by Bobby Owens & The Diplomats, "I Think It's Time" by Alice Swoboda, "Black Midnight" by JJ Jones, "That's How Much I Love You" by Eula Cooper, "Let's Get Funky" by Langston & French, "You Got A Spell On Me" by Bill Wright, "Strange Feeling" by Nathan Wilkes, "Shake Daddy Shake" by Eula Cooper, and "Nitecap" by L Daniels.

Funky female soul galore – a killer set of rare tunes that's one of the best sets of this type we've ever stocked!

VariousLA's Silver Soul – Lee Silver's Symphonic Productions ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Dig harmony soul? Here's a treasure trove – great work from the LA scene of the late 60s and early 70s, remarkable in that the city's not nearly as well known for work in that genre as points on the east coast – often thought of as the real home of harmony soul! The set features 24 tracks all produced by Lee Silver – all from small label releases, and brought together for the first time in such rich quality. Male groups dominate the set, and most tunes are taken at a slightly swinging midtempo pace that sits somewhere between ballad soul and uptempo northern. Titles include "That's All Over Baby" and "Your Good Lovin" by The Jones Brothers, "Do Youself A Favor" and "Bent Out Of Shape" by The Themes, "Got No Reason" and "Coming Right Back" by 21st Century, "Forever Yours" and "Gonna Wait For You" by The Pentagons, "Reaching Higher" and "What Price" by Nathan Williams, "Save Your Love" by Soul Patrol, and "You Walked Away" by The Chesterfields.

RPM (UK), 1960s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
A totally wonderful little package – overflowing with the kind of rare 45s that broke big on the British scene of the 60s – not just the Northern Soul dancefloors, but also the mod scene down in London too! The collection is really well-done – and has a booklet with notes on all the singles, and a good number of label scans too – and there's a huge amount here that's pretty darn fresh to our ears – grooves that run from romping soul, to gritty R&B, to bumping garage rock, and even a bit of popcorn too – all coming across like a non-stop party of grooves! Titles include "I Can Take Care Of Myself" by The Spyders, "Sugar Shack Queen" by Georgia Lynn, "The Push & Kick" by Mark Valentino, "Running Around Town" by Teddy & The Twilights, "Passing Through Music City" by Music City Swingers, "My Mind" by The Misunderstood, "Show Me The Way" by Free For All, "Has It Happened To You Yet" by The Falcons, "Take It Baby" by The Showmen, "I'm Gonna Get You" by Leroy Harris, "I Feel So Bad" by Earl wade, "Love Wheel" by Millie Foster, "Buzzzzz" by Jimmy Gordon, "Gone" by Timi Yuro, "I Will Love You" by Richie Barrett, and "Hard Hard Way" by Silent Glo.

VariousModernism – 24 Tracks Of Hip-shaking Club Soul & Vintage R&B ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
Not the modernism of high art or experimental literature – and instead the upbeat, totally groovy sound of British mods in the 60s – served up here in a wicked batch of American soul tracks from the time! The style here is a bit Northern Soul, but also has a bit more of the blues and R&B elements that inspired some of the Brit rock acts of the time – but served up here by the originators from our side of the Atlantic, and with the kind of attention to special tracks and rare singles that we've come to expect from the great folks at Kent Records! This is more than just a rehash of older hits or overplayed numbers – and instead, the carefully-chosen set list really gets right to the heart of the matter – and backs up its musical magic with a great set of notes, photos, and label scans. Titles include "Ain't That Soul" by Teddy Reynolds, "Do It" by Pat Powdrill, "Crossroads In Your Heart" by The Shirelles, "Beg Me" by Chuck Jackson, "Cinderella Jones" by Sammy Jones, "We Gonna Rub (part 1)" by Joe Johnson, "Night Beat" by Kenny Smith & The Lovelighters, "Magic Potion" by Lou Johnson, "The Life Of The Party" by Joan Moody, "The Phillie" by The M&Ms & The Peanuts, "Private Eye" by Wallace Johnson, "Listen To Me Baby" by Ralph Ventsha & Red Julian Quartet, and "When One Of Them Won't" by The Turn Arounds.

VariousOld Town & Barry Soul Survey ... CD
Old Town/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A treasure trove of 60s soul from New York – rare singles from the Old Town and Barry labels, most of which are making their debut here on CD! Both companies were owned by producer Hy Weiss – and together, the tunes on the set really trace an evolution in soul styles at the time. Old Town was probably best known for its mellow work by singer Arthur Prysock, and its vocal group hits at the beginning of the 60s – but the label was also a key force in the uptown soul style of the time, and really brought a great degree of class to the genre without losing the punch of the sound. Barry was a bit more of an indie singles outfit – and worked in modes that included a bit more socking soul and northern numbers – often done with the same sort of care as Old Town, but a bit more freewheeling overall. The package features full histories on both labels and their artists – and a 26 track set list that includes "If I Had Known" by Freddie Houston, "Could This Be Love" by Rosco & Barbara, "Souvenirs Of A Heartbreak" by Thelma Jones, "You Can't Trust Your Best Friend" by Donald Height, "Let Your Love Shine" by Lester Young, "Think Smart" by The Fiestas, "Hold It Baby" by King Ernest, "Lonely Man" by John Standberry Jr, "Things Have More Meaning Now" by Peggy Scott, "Stop & Take Another Look" by The Divine Men, "Slowly I Turn" by Billy Profit, "I Gotta Have Love Too" by Bobby Long & The Dealers, "Left Out" by Jesse Johnson, and "Say It With Feeling" by Beverly McKay.

Croydon Municipal (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $13.99
Exotica sounds, but with an especially soulful feel – which makes the tracks a perfect choice for this excellent collection! The work is in a special place between exotic instrumentals, teen pop, and deeper soul of the late 50s and early 60s – and most numbers here have that special balance you'll find in the popcorn soul underground – the kind of midtempo steppers that have really been getting a lot of play on dancefloors in recent years – especially when you want to cool off a bit from Northern Soul! As with other titles on the Croydon Municipal label, the track selection is divine – and titles include "The Riddle Of The Papawhos" by Danny Staton, "Call Of The Jungle" by Carl Stevens, "Cafe Bohemian" by The Enchanters, "The Web" by Abie Baker, "Tabou" by The Jokers, "On A Tropical Island" by Anna Valentino, "Little Indian Girl" by Billy & The Moonlighters, "Cat Walk" by Jack Costanzo, and "Arabia" by The Delcos.

VariousShrine – The Rarest Soul Label Ever ... CD
Shrine/Kent (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $7.99
A seminal collection of rare soul from Ace/Kent Records – and one that virtually set the standard for all the countless obscure soul collections that have followed over the years! Back when Kent issued this one, folks had barely started to scratch past the surface for vintage soul – mostly going after well-spun singles on the Northern scene, or familiar cuts for east coast collectors – so unleashing work of a very obscure label like this was (and still is) something of a landmark – and makes for the kind of collection we can still dig all these many years later. Shrine hailed from the DC scene of the 60s – which hardly ever gets any play in the soul history books next to Detroit, Chicago, and Philly – and most of these cuts have a very hard Northern Soul vibe – nice and gritty, with excellent vocals to match. Titles include "Fall Guy" by The Cautions, "My Only Love" by The Counts, "Don't Let Him Hurt You" by Les Chansonettes, "Stop Overlooking Me" by The Cairos, "Guess Who Loves You" by Eddie Dave & The 4 Bars, "Let Me Walk Away" by Tippie & The Wisemen, "The Weekend" by Sidney Hall, and "I Know About Her" by The DC Blossoms.

✨✧ ServicemenMeet The Servicemen – Classic Soul From Phoenix, Arizona (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Wind Hit, Mid 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic styled and classic worthy R&B vocal group soul from The Servicemen – a group based at Luke Air Force Base near Phoenix, AZ – a mix of uptempo productions and sweet acapellas cut in '66 & '67! A few numbers have lit up the UK Northern Soul scene in the past decade or so, but for the most part this material has languished undiscovered, and it's well worth checking out. The rhythms are tight and sharp, and there's some nice production touches on some of it, including some vibes and solid horn arrangements, but the focus is on the group vocals, left to lead the way on the acapella versions. A mix of uptempo numbers and ballads, with titles including the main and acapella versions of "Are You Angry", "I Need A Helping Hand" and "My Turn", "I'll Stop Loving You", "Close Your Eyes", "Right Around The Corner", the acapellas "Come Back To Me" and "Why Can't You Be True".

Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the earliest soul collections from the legendary Kent Records UK – a package that was originally released way back in 1982, but which set the scene for decades of great reissues to come! Even at this early state, the Kent approach was something different – and the package shows a great ear for under-discovered 60s soul gems – most of which have a sock-solid Northern Soul approach! Most of the work here is from the US Kent/Modern label – obviously an inspiration for the UK imprint – and the tunes are a mix of Detroit-styled soul numbers and a few deeper soul tracks. 15 tunes in all – including "You Turned My Bitter Into Sweet" by Mary Love, "I'm So Thankful" by The Ikettes, "In The Sunshine" by The Marvellos, "Before It's Too Late" by Jackie Day, "Your Love Has Made Me A Man" by Willie Hutch, "Baby Without You" by Danny Monday, "Gimme Gimme" by ZZ Hill, "Dancing Fast Dancing Slow" by The Intentions, "Let Me Know" by Mary Love, "I've Been Taken For A Ride" by The Intentions, "I Can Feel Your Love" by Felice Taylor, and "Come Back Baby" by Tami Young.
