THE HIPSTER IMAGE (Decca Re F.12137)
Side A: Maker Her Mine Side B: Can't Let Her Go
Great reissue of this British Mod-Jazz anthem from '65. The hipster Image only released one single on Decca, which was produced by Alan Price of The Animals. A classic but classy tune on the 60's mod scene, the original 45 is virtually impossible to find, so you better get yourself this new copy before they all run out.

PILOOSKI - Can't There Be Love (Diamontraxx FR)
Excellent edit by French artist Pilooski of the Dee Edwards northern anthem, recently used (and re-released) by Adidas for the TV. Very useful 12 inch for the DJs.
Great sample compilation of the infamous Pompeii label from Dallas including the Grammy Award Nominee instrumental "Thinking Black" by Ike Turner. Other artists include Tina Turner, Les Watson, Fontella Bass, Leroy Horne, Roger Collins and The Project.
Year: 1969 Vinyl / Sleeve condition: VG+/VG++ (in shrink) Price: SOLD
BEAT PARTY - The Underground (Major Minor UK)
Excellent LP by unknown UK outfit The Underground. Most tracks here are covers of well-known soul classics, but the production here is massive ! Surely the work of KPM studio men. My faves here are "Respect" and the only composition "Beat Party", listen to both !
Great 45 by Ray with killer dancer "The Train" on A side, I just love the backing vocals by Raelettes and the huge bass sound on that track. Brilliant work and guaranteed floor-filler!
Year: 1966 Vinyl / Sleeve condition: VG+/Plain White Price: SOLD
Dance and Mood Music Volume 4 - Paul Piot et Son Grand Orchestre (Vadim Music VAD022LP)
Taken from the mythical Dance and Mood Music series by English library music label Chappell, this record from French composer Paul Piot is packed full with typically sixties grooves, totally pop atmospheres, and wonderful mod sounds.
The Cecil Holmes Soulful Sounds - The Black Motion Picture Experience (Buddah BDS5129)
You might be tempted to pass up on this one because of the NASTY cover. Don't make that mistake. Buy this album. It's an instrumental reworking of all the major pre-1974 black action themes, and features the likes of Randy Brecker in a killer studio band. The album contains one of the few versions of the 'Slaughter' theme committed to vinyl.
Side A:Sha-La-La-La-Lee / Grow Your Own Side B: It's Too Late / I've Got Mine
Absolutely mindbending and rare 1st French EP by UK Mod fathers The Small Faces. My preferences go for the organ frenzy of "Grow Your Own" and the soulful gem "I've Got Mine", both dancefloor burners. Not to be missed!
Year: 1966 Vinyl / Sleeve condition: VG+/(Plain white) Price: SOLD
CHUCK JACKSON & MAXINE BROWN (Vogue)
Side A: Something You Got / Anything For A Laugh Side B: Baby Take Me / I Need You
Killer EP by northern soul legends, here without a sleeve but the tracks are so good and hence the price. Great performances all round here.
Side A: Concerto Grosso Pour Les New Trolls (Adagio) Side B: Concerto Grosso Pour Les New Trolls (Allegro)
Great prog rock mixed with classical music from this Italian band famous for its many line-up changes. Produced by Luis Bacalov and released on the very cult Pierre Cardin label, this has got to be the quintessence of their sound.
THE LAURIE JOHNSON ORCHESTRA / CHAPEAU MELON ET BOTTES DE CUIR OST (Emi)
Side A: The New Avengers Theme Side B: L'Homme Au Chapeau Melon
This one's a corker of a 45, A side kicks off with an tremendous funk version of the theme backed with slashing wah wah, pounding bass and killer drums, the orchestra is of course in top form. B side's continues with John Steed talking about the famous series, in French, with short but lethal interceded funk pieces. Total KPM library sound, only released in France!
Side A: Nothing Takes The Place Of You Side B: Shimmy
Although the A side reached N°5 in the US R&B charts, the flip side has our attention here: a great minimalist organ blower from the swamps of Louisiana, very simple, straight-forward but sooo efficient 45. Get it!
