Of the seven issued titles, Betty Gouche's is one of the most in-demand records of the moment, having been championed by Ian Wright in the UK. Also highly regarded is the Jim Pipkin, James Brown-alike Walking The Duck, while the Eternal Flames' record would set you back hundreds of pounds. The other four are in-demand and none could be bought for less than £100.
The unissued tracks include an instrumental version of the break-beat classic I Got Some, perfect for producers wanting to swipe the beat. There's a strong chunk of gospel funk from Dorothy Norwood, gems from the Music City and Dave Hamilton vaults and a scorching slice of southern fried sister funk Talk Is Cheap by an unknown soul singer.
Perhaps the biggest coup is finding an unreleased track by the great, but sadly under-recorded Linda Lyndell.
