This week sees one of our best soul updates in recent times, in due time for the Stockholm Soul weekender which kicks off today and goes on through Sunday. Tons of tremendous titles for your consideration, mostly 60s/early 70s soul, but also some modern soul and a few funkier things.
Ok, so where do we start? All-time favorite albums as "Introducing the Whatnauts" (sealed OG!!), a double dose of O.V. Wright ("8 men" and "A nickle & a nail"), Turbo-related rarities from Willie & West and Willie & The Mighty Magificents, Bobby Taylor's majestic "Taylor made soul", Sam Baker's tough "Sometimes you have to cry", tve even tougher first issue of Kelly Brothers' "Sweet sweet soul" and classic LPs from Bobby Patterson, James Carr and Tommie Young.
Over to the 45 then: Very rare sweet soul from Soul Projections (big favorite for the Family Circle crew and Karl Marthon) and Rappers "I've tried" (first issue, NOT the repress), mega crossover from Roger Hatcher ("Sweetest girl in the world"), Channel 3 and Sensational Little Doc, classic Detroit from Brothers of Soul, deep crossover heaven from Wes Lewis and the super obscure Snapper
So far we haven't even mentioned top tiles as the Class Set album, Rayford Tucker's rare 45 on Sandpiper and Helen Shapiro's northern biggie "Stop", so you know that there's a plethora of good stuff to choose from.
Check the pictures below for examples of the rarer stuff or see all of this week's new arrivals in our New In Stock-section.
