If you have a passion for obscure R&B and Soul 45s then you've come to the right place!
We are U.K. based, specializing in 50s/60s Rhythm & Blues and Soul 45s.
Many R&B/Soul 45s are often described by sub-genres, such as New Breed, Northern Soul, Popcorn, etc. Moreso when DJs on these various scenes popularise such 45s in their current playlists.
Other styles of music are also collected on these respective scenes, so you will find 45s listed on this site that may not necessarily be R&B or Soul as such...Rockin' Instrumentals, Latin and Jazz to name a few!
Rather than having multiple sections listing all these various genres, we prefer to keep the site as basic as possible. Therefore, just a couple of general categories will be used, each one covering a few or more genres.
Pleasetake the time to PLAY any soundclips that interest you.
That's why they are there!
All soundclips and label scans are taken from the actual 45 listed for sale, and are not modified or enhanced in any way. If any soundclips do not play, please let me know as soon as possible so I can resolve the problem.
We plan to update the site monthly, and hope you will return to view whats new!
Please also note, this is a LIVE SITE, so all 45s listed are currently in stock and available unless a SOLD banner is showing. So no need to contact me to enquire if LIVE 45s are available, just go ahead and purchase!
GRADINGS & CONDITIONS
Vinyl grading is based on visual & sound quality.
Grades used are,
M- / Ex / Ex- / VG+ / VG
I don't tend to use the M grade, as once I've had to play grade & record the 45 it is no longer unplayed, so can't be Mint!
Although I would rather not list records in conditions lower than VG+, I might make exceptions for particularly rare and indemand 45s.
Label scans are of the actual 45s for sale, so you can see any fade/wear/writing/stickers/tears etc.
If you require a photo of flip label please contact me.
Soundfiles will provide an accurate representation of the actual sound quality of the 45.
If you find that you are unhappy with my grading, please contact me immediately.
A FULL REFUND is always available!
All packages over £20 must now be sent insured.
I have suffered a few losses due to parcels being under insured and am no longer willing to send packages under insured.
To make this less of a sting for lower value packages I have subsidised some postal costs for packages valued between £50 to £75, so the customer pays less than the actual cost of postage.
This ensures that all packages are insured to full value.
Postage also include the cost of mailer & heavy duty packaging.
Higher value items have to be fully insured with tracking & signature of receipt at delivery point where possible.
If in doubt please feel free to contact me for more info.
Payment can be made instantly by Paypal or manually via Bank transfer, Cheque, Cash etc.
The latter is obviously a slower process and will need payment to clear prior to shipping.
WE ALSO BUY RECORDS!
If you have any 45s you think might interest me, from single items to whole collections, please get in touch via the contact info tab on the main header, or simply use the contact email/mobile info on the top banner!
Hopefully you will find something of interest, and please return again soon!
