“After scouring record shops, markets and the internet for the best music for our sets we became increasingly frustrated at the cost and poor quality of the records that we wanted to play out. Whilst being happy to use digital alternatives in their place, good quality WAVs for some of the more obscure tracks became near impossible to find. So from day one we began to make a list of all the tracks we played out that were unobtainable on vinyl and those we could only have dreamt of playing that it seemed were lost to time. This list became the bedrock for Deptford Northern Soul Club Records, and with the help of Northern fans up and down the UK it grew to the point where we began searching for the rights and the highest quality audio to reissue. We are so excited to begin sharing releases soon. KTF!” Will and Lewis, 2019
Originally released on the Ovide label from Houston, Texas, in 1970 and currently going for around £175 if you can find a copy.
‘Get Your Point Over’ is a brass-led funky dancer that beautifully compliments Williams’ soulful vocal style, while the flipside ‘I Don't Care What Mama Said (Baby I Need You)’ is a slower groove that lets that vocal really soar; arriving complete with a groovy psychedelic guitar break before Williams testifies to his lady amid some punchy brass stabs.
Two stellar tunes from Sebastian Williams (AKA Roger Williams of no-hit wonders The Quarter Notes) whose solo recording career amounted to just three 45s, all five years apart, along with a couple of releases as Sebastian And The House Rockers and finally, in 1975 just Sebastian.
Vocally, imagine vintage Tavares lead singer Chubby Tavares at his gritty best with a funky brass section in a soulful Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes-styled blast.
