You're the Only One
You're the Only One (7" limited to 50 copies) (1 per customer)
Cat: TR 269.
  1. You're The Only One (feat Bonnie Blanchard & The Mean Machine)
  2. Right On Time (feat The Mean Machine)
Review: For their latest must-check rare soul reissue, German crate diggers TRAMP Records take us back to 1969 and the sole single from Philadelphia outfit Andy Aaron & the Mean Machine. A-side "You're The Only One" is a superb chunk of bass-heavy soul full of energetic drumming, fuzzy horn motifs, inspired lead vocals by Bonnie Blanchard and sax solos from none other than Grover Washington (then a young musician and member of the Mean Machine). Equally as potent is instrumental flipside "Right On Time", which is a riotous funk workout that boasts more lung-busting solos from an on form Washington.

  1. Music
  2. Forever Us
Review: Kalita are happy to announce the first ever 12" reissue of Henry Turner Jr.'s hugely sought-after 1980 disco single, 'Music', backed by the first ever re-release of his 1984 boogie single 'Forever Us'. So elusive and in-demand, the former routinely commands four-figure sums on the rare occasion that a copy surfaces for collectors and DJs to scramble over. The latter is equally as great, commanding three-figure sums and demonstrating clearly America's development by the mid-1980s away from disco and towards the boogie craze. In addition, here Kalita accompany the release with a never-before-seen press photo of Henry's band Crystal and interview-based liner notes.

Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the Crystal band consisted of Henry on guitar with local musicians Ranches Hall on keyboards and vocals and Ricky Broomfield on drums. By the tail end of the 1970s, Crystal had settled themselves into the local music scene, and performed at many nearby venues including The Golden Palace, Derringers', The J Club, and for numerous fraternities and sororities of nearby universities.

By 1980, the band were ready to record their first single, 'Music', in the hope that it would be a radio hit. As Henry explains, "we were driven performers and 'Music' was the perfect tool to get us radio play". They decided to pay to lay down and press their music at Soundsmith Recording Studio, which had the ability to not only record but to also manufacture and release their music on the studio's own eponymously- named label. Only five hundred copies of the record were pressed, distributed by the band themselves, meaning that today, copies almost never turn up for sale. A fantastic disco track, upon release the band deservedly succeeded in their original aim, and it was a radio hit in Baton Rouge.

Within four years of 'Music's' release, Ranches Hall had left the band, reducing it to two core members - Henry and Ricky. However, still eager for success, the now-slimmed down Crystal band recorded 'Forever Us' over a couple of days as a follow-up single to 'Music', laying down their instruments at the local Sound Trax Studio, produced by Henry himself. In contrast to the number of additional session musicians that had performed on their first record, here only Henry and Ricky contributed, playing all the instruments and providing the vocals themselves. On release, the record received notable success, not only in the US but also across the pond on the UK scene.

Since then, Henry has continued to release both his and other musicians' music on his own Hit City label, as well as developing his musical style and cementing himself in at the core of the Baton Rouge music scene.

We hope that this timely re-release helps to make such great pieces of music accessible and affordable to all once more.

This Is My Year
Cat: DFL 001. Rel: 25 Oct 19
  1. This Is My Year
  2. Keep This In Mind
Review: First up on Discs Of Fun & Love - a fresh reissue label launched by London diggers Miche and Frederika - is a fresh 7" pressing of Rochelle Rabouin's sole single: a 1977 45 that has long been a sought-after "side" amongst crossover soul collectors. A-side "This Is My Year" is the one for dancefloor plays, offering as it does a celebratory vocal over what would then have been called a "modern soul" backing track (disco, basically, though the term was used in Northern Soul circles as a catch-all for anything that wasn't old and stomping). Side B's "Keep This In Mind" is a superb slow number smothered in strings and glassy-eyed orchestration that's probably always on rotation at the mythical "Heartbreak Hotel".
