Hi this is Kev-Lo I would guess that most of or if not all of us on SD have a large record collection,but there's still some records that we don't have and is still trying to get. I know there's some records that I don't have like the Soul Makossa-Mongo Dibango LP that Lp is very hard to get.I've been looking for that LP for years
|By CORNBREAD (184.108.40.206) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 06:45 pm:|
You shouldn't lose any sleep over the Manu Dibango album as it will turn up eventually. There are a lot of other records that were pressed up in very limited amounts. Those are the ones to worry about.

I'd love to find That's The Way It Will Stay by Tomorrows Promise. The Ponderosa Twins + 1 45s, It's Rough Out Here LP by The Modulations. A better copy of Find Me by The Attractions. An affordable copy of Lonely Teardrops that Linda Jones recorded as Linda Lane. That's a start.

Hi this is Kev-Lo hey Juicefree20 what's happening I have the Modulations LP It is indeed a bad LP and speaking of the attractions I Played Find Me and New Girl In The Neiborhood earlier when I was Jaming

Juice Free, P-Vine Records in Japan put out a 14 song album on The Ponderosa Twins Plus One some years ago that is still available. It's identical cover and all to the album they put out here in the states when they were recording with the exception of the inclusions of "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" and "Bitter With The Sweet." A final single "Tomorrow's Train" and its flip is not on the album. To my knowledge P-Vine never put it out in CD format yet.

The LP's I'm still trying to find are:
Clara Ward with The Tomlin Choir... This LP was made in the 60's and had my sisters, aunt, and brother-in-laws who sang with the Tomlin Choir. I had a copy of it but it has disappeared.
Don Gardner Trio...This LP is also from the early 60's and has my cousin Al Cass doing vocals on a song called "How Do You Speak To An Angel".
I would love to find these albums or at least get a copy of them.
Hope someone from SD can give me a lead.

As an addendum to Vonnie's post,
if anyone does have How do you speak to an angel by Don Gardner can you burn a cd or casete for us.
We have a project that we need the song for, asap.

LOOKING FOR: any copies of saxaphonist "HAROLD OUSLEY'S "CD" on J's Way label titled "Thats When We Thought Of Love", it features 3 vocal tracks by it's producer Jimmy Scott. Recorded in 1986, released in 1994.
Jimmy & I, only have a couple copies left in our possesion and are looking for more copies for other's who are searching for this "CD". Jimmy has lost phone numbers to contact Harold or his people directly so if anyone has this info, it would be greatly appreciated as the majority of copies Jimmy gave to Harold at time of release date.
THANK YOU in advance to anyone who may be able to help in our search.
All The Best,

Who was your distributor at the time? Maybe a sales rep from whomever handled the product may be able to help (I know of many from my record retail days so I could make a few calls for you).
Also if you can find a CD replicator in your area they could burn multiple copies for you.
Finally, you may want to contact our friends at WBGO-FM in Newark.

There is this 60's group called Little Sister and they had a record (which was very funky)called Stanga. It was the "B" side of a song I can't remember. I believe it was produced by Sly Stone. I've been trying to get that song for years without any success.
|By KevGo (188.8.131.52) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 03:01 pm:|

Thank you for the offer but unfortunately that wouldn't help because J's Way at the time promoted and sold their own CDs. Jimmy did the best he could at that time with being on the road full-time himself. Jimmy owned all copies and copywrites but turned the bulk of Harold's over to him. I have hope that we will locate Harold in N.Y. eventually, but would like to sooner rather than later.
As far as having copies reproduced from our CDs or the master, I'd rather not go to all that trouble just for a small number of die-hard fans who need this CD for their collection (smile). I have enough to deal with, with Jimmy's own CDs on the road that I carry with us.
We still have lots of CD's left on other artists Jimmy produced on J's Way that are sitting on shelves in our studio from Arthur Leeks, Connie Speed (a.k.a. Connie Pitt), Lander Coleman, Larry Brown, Janet Tanaj & Sven Anderson, etc...but we are out of Harold Ousley's, the one collector's want just because Jimmy is on it even though he sings those same songs on other CDs of his own that they already have, they want it to complete their collection (sigh)! (smile).
Anyhow, thanks again for the offer. Much appreciated.

Thanks Calliluv, for the information about the Major Lance on CD. But I actually have recordings of that song on one of his Okeh LPs and also on an Okeh 7 inch 33 RPM EP. I also have it on CD. I just wanted to get the missing 45 issue 7200, to fill in my label run. It's a missing number. Were not sure if it was even pressed up as a company file copy (let alone DJ). I really shouldn't have listed it (it's just that I'm an completist archivist of Chicago and Detroit soul labels). If someone found it, and realised how rare it is, I probably wouldn't want to pay what they'd ask for it, anyway (as i already have it to listen to).

Thanks KevGo, for the info on The Andre Williams Miracle Record, I guess we can assume the same is true for Miracle 3 - "Blibber Blabber" by Gino Parks? For years, we had seen The Little Iva, Gino Parks and Andre Williams Miracle 2, 3 and 4 listed as scheduled, but seen no sign of any pressed records. I didn't see the Little Iva record in the Jobete Music record file. Someone had removed it (like the Frank Wilson Soul record). I assumed all 3 had not been issued-or even pressed up.

Seems like they have all gone overseas to the Northern soul clubs.. More power to you folks in the UK and elsewhere across the pond who obviously care more about our obscure soul artists than we do here at home..But enough preaching...does anyone know a source for this one on a CD?

Frankie B, I believe the O'Jays version of "No Time For You" is the remake and the Commands' the original. When H.B. Barnum stopped producing the O'Jays at Imperial they cut a lot of remakes of songs that were previously released non hits. Would love to hear the Commands version.

What's up Cali! I became interested in Kim Weston's 'Nobody' last month when either Tony or Randy Russi mentioned it on a Hodges, James, Smith & Crawford thread. I had mentioned the excellent H,J,S & C version of 'Nobody' on Mpingo and one of the brothers informed me that Kim had also recorded that tune and she says that it's her favorite Post-Motown single. I did a little research and I see that it was also her most successful Post-Motown single (#39 R&B). The H,J,S & C version has one of the most wicked basslines I've ever heard in my life! I can't wait to see what Kim did with it. Let me know how you like it if you do have it caliluv. Thanks.

Thanks for the scans Ron. I'd seen the Little Iva before, as you put it on an earlier thread. That still doesn't tell me if it was pressed comercially, as I've seen the Frank Wilson in private hands, and as you've surmised, there were only 6 pressed originally. The Oma heard has the cut-out hole punched. So, I assume commercial copies were pressed (although, I'm sure it was never delivered outside of Detroit/Toledo?

Robb: a little note about Miracle 2, I 'm positive that record was pressed in 1963 and not at the time of the original scheduled release date. I believe Raynoma may have had some copies(100) done up just for herself,I wish I had asked her when I met with her a few years ago, I did ask Gino Parks about his and he said he never seen one and I never seen 3 or 4 so other than acetates or maybe a few test pressings I doubt that 2-3 or 4 were actualy pressed comercially.

I've posted this before, but I can't believe none of y'alls have this record. I never would have sold mine if I knew it was so rare. Can someone cut me a CD (or sell me a 45) of:
I Know How It Feels/Wondering If You Miss Me by
Laura Johnson on Brent. Both sides are published by Jobete, so probably a Detroit artist!?
The other 45 I want is "In My Diary" by Maskman & Agents. I have it on a bad bootleg CD.
|By Robb_K (18.104.22.168) on Saturday, April 03, 2004 - 04:00 am:|
I have the Laura Johnson record, but I can't cut a CD, as I don't have a CD burner (nor do I know anyone with one where I am located now). The recordings were made by Correc-Tone in Detroit, but I'm not sure that she was living in Detroit at the time, as they also recorded Marva Josie; who, I believe, was an East Coast artist. I could put it on cassette tape for you. Then, you could transfer that to CD, yourself, if you have the capability. Perhaps we can swap recordings for each other (I'm sure you have some music I would like to hear, and vice versa). If you wish, you can contact me at: email@example.com
|By Robb_K (22.214.171.124) on Saturday, April 03, 2004 - 04:09 am:|
Actually, only one side, "I Know How It Feels", was published by Jobete (as it was a Motown song, sung by Satintones, Mary Wells, and a few other Motown artists. "Wondering If You Miss Me" was written by Ms. Johnson, Robert Bateman and Willie Harbert, for Correc-Tone.

Going allllll the way back to Robb's choice...I'm after this one too:
Combinations - Kimtone 1001
...and was shocked to see a label scan recently with a different label design than 'normal'...so two presses to chase thus making it easier for us, eh?! ;-)
What's this one like...as good as their, 'It's my time' on Capitol, which I love.
Drew-Vels, Quill 107

I haven't heard Quill 107 yet, Flynny, so I'm only guessing that it's good. The two other records I have on Quill by The Drew-Vels are "cute" little dittys, and sound okay. They're worth having. They are similar in quality to some of their early Capital sounds (but not nearly as good as "Tell Him"; and not quite as good as "Everybody Knows" or It's My Time"
i can now scratch another off my list above, as I have finally added the 1959 Major Lance Mercury record (backed by The Impressions) to my collection, after 44 years of looking. I should have paid the dollar when it was new (although it didn't come to Winnipeg, I did visit my cousins in Chicago that year, and could have bought it. I never saw it again until now.

There are too, too many things I'm after...unfortunately, many other folks (most of 'em from the UK) are after a lot of the same things as me (Salvadors, Emperors, Elbie Parker to name a couple). I also have plenty of non-soul wants as well.
Sis--you're not gonna believe this, but I had that Metros 45 for a short time and stupidly traded it for a copy of the first Shrine records LP. I thought it was worth it to finally get to hear the Shrine stuff...yeah, right! I should've just bought one of those albums rather than trade a cool 45 for it!

Mark Speck - How are you? Not too long ago, that 45 went for about $346 on ebay. What I really want is the B side "No Baby."

Mark, I could have warned you about the Shrine tracks--very amateurish and unimspiring with the exception of a few tracks. It's no wonder none became hits and only a few received any airplay.

Yeah, RD, but still I just had to hear 'em. Besides, this was quite some time ago, before I had the PC and was dealing with the guy I traded it to via snail mail.
I also traded a rare 45 ("Can't Stop Looking for My Baby" by the Fantastic Four) to get the second volume of Shrine. Now it's all out on CD, with unreleased stuff. I'm kicking myself now!
