Caught 300 soul / Northern 7" collection before Crimbo and haven't had a chance to listen through, so I made a start today:
So far my my top 3 are:
1: Barbara Randolph - "You got me hurtin' all over" Motown TMG 628
2: Darrow Fletcher - "The pain gets a little deeper" London HLU 10024
3: Marvin Smith - "Time stopped" Coral Q.72486
The condition of most of the singles is a little heartbreaking at first sight (VG / VG+) but the pressings are for the most part excellent and play without any nastyness... picked up a hip hop collection not so long ago that was truly hammred me & Parks went through the lot - it was a long and sad process...
Beware the lollipop of mediocrity; lick it once and you'll suck forever.
