I really rate this one, the b-side is also amazing. You have got to love the trippy imagery. Press release below....
Limited edition of 500 copies of 7" vinyl
RELEASE DATE FEB. 15th.
Guest Villains is a wild instrumental combo consisting of sax, organ, guitar, bass, drums and percussions. Their sound is pure unadulterated sleaze! This single, their very first 7” release is an essential piece of vinyl filth.
“Tornado“ is a frantic surf instrumental, complete with dirty lustful saxophone, twangy surf guitars and overly echoed percussion breaks. This ferocious shaker is stereotypical “tittyshaker”. It sounds like it could have been lifted straight out of a raunchy Russ Meyer flick, you can almost hear the swooshing pasties as they spin to this one!
"Forbidden Feelings" contains a filthy saxophone melody that just oozes with the promise of sin, this one will get the windows steamed up for sure. The orgastic ending of the song makes you want to have more, more, more…

Barbara Stant - My Mind Holds On To Yestersday
There are two pressing which are new being sold as originals at high prices without informing customers they are represses. Please check your copies deadwax against the United matrix number below if you bought it in the last year if they match you were ripped off. Very sad, a real black mark on the legacy of a great label. You can also spot the repress as it has a very orange label with very dark text, the originals (pictured) look faded. Also they sound like shit, mastered from a 128kbs mp3 on a biscuit tin.
Barbara Stant - 'Real Man' (shiptown) United Records pressing number 63709 - January 2010
Barbara Stant - 'My mind holds on to yesterday' (shoptown) United Records pressing number 63895- March 2010
The pressing dates have been confirmed by united who agree it was misleading, you may repeat them if you like: http://www.urpressing.com/

Waymond Hall - Children Of The World CU
Wednesday, 16 December 2009
Limited reissue of a totally obscure private press LP of real quality soul music, from up-tempo disco movers to crossover floor fillers and deep modern ballads, there are several good reasons why this LP has been so prized amongst lovers of progressive, rare soul music.
The fifth release in our illustrious HOLY GRAIL series is a faithful, collector-friendly reissue of Washington DC native George Smallwood’s only LP, one of the most sought after modern soul long players in existence. As ever, we present the LP complete with its original artwork intact and the music lovingly restored – limited to 1000 numbered copies on vinyl. The CD issue boasts additional tracks taken from his 45s as well as exclusive in-depth track notes with background info on the man himself and every song included.
As with every release thus far in this series, haste is strongly advised! We have sold out on every title and we anticipate the demand on this to be just as strong!
George Smallwood had actually turned his back on a dream of a career in music in order to provide for his family by driving trucks for a living when a terrible accident intervened to rob him of his sight forever. Finding gainful employment hard to come by, Smallwood turned once again to music as both a possible vocation and a remedy for his soul. Setting up a home studio outfit, he buried himself in instrumentation and composition in a more deep and concentrated way than ever before. Eventually assembling a band of talented musicians he began to record and release his own 45s.
Each record he released was distinguished by truly sophisticated production, a smooth sound and lavish depth which marks Smallwood as a real voice in 70s soul music, but one which few up til now have ever heard. Even without major success, thankfully Smallwood continued to record and issue short-run records through the ‘70s and into the early ‘80s, culminating in the majesty of his full length LP ‘Just For You.’
With George’s blessing and endorsement we are thrilled to be able to offer up his wonderful album once again, and we feel that it will find a much wider and more receptive audience than it did the first time around, in fact the audience it was always intended for – lovers of deep, groovy music from the heart and soul.
Just received an early Christmas present from the mighty Timmion Records and as usual it's a winner. Stronger out the stalls than than "Cold Game" it still has the depth to hook even the most grumpy old souly at the same time as putting a smile on the face of a young civilian. I have been playing this 3 times a night. I need these guys with the Soul Investigators to get on the tour bus and come to Scotland!
