Maybe Tonya's Music on Gratiot and Harper sells soul music from that era or Shantinique Records down the street on Harper may have some also. PLus, you can check the chain stores, as they usually have some also.

Did you try asking this on Lowell's other site, soulful detroit? I'm sure you'll get better answers to this question over there.

Garage sale time is coming, get up early on Saturday mornings and hit the sales.

Royal Oak Farmers Market on Sundays usually has vinyl.

2. Harmony House-Berkley

Oh, well.

Harmony House in Berkley is no more. The chain gave up its last location, and it is now an FYE store.

1) Car city records on Harper north of Detroit(they may be closed)

2)P.J's records in Ann Arbor_ Packard and Hill.

3) Encore records in Ann Arbor Liberty and Thompson.

All three(if car city is still going) have extensive records cds etc of all kinds; encore is jam packed with great stuff.

Soulalways-

If you look to your left you will see a phrase named "Soulful Detroit". This site is moderated by Ralph Terrana, the owner of the Terra Shirma Studio, and keyboard player with "Rare Earth". This site has music people and music collectors posting from all over the world. The fellow who owns this site owns that one as well. You will run into all kinds of people over there....from Joyce Vincent from Tony Orlando & Dawn to Bob Babbit from "The Funk Bros.". Give it a try.

Soulalways....
.....there's a gob of people on SD who are very familiar with the Northern Soul scene in England, and if asked would be more than happy to steer you to vinal shops on both this and your side of the pond. I'd be willing to bet they've got contact information, too.....

I used to work for the guy that owns Record Graveyard in Hamtramck. It's a pretty big vinyl only store. You can also hit the record conventions, my parents have been working the local shows for years now. There's usually a good variety of oldies and you'll meet a lot of knowledgable people.

People's is THE place to go for soul and R&B 45s in Detroit. Brad is not only a really cool guy, but he knows a ton about those genres. It's his thing. It's near Wayne State at 2nd and Forest.

Also, Soulalways, you might try a forum I started recently: http://detroitrecords.informe. com. It's still new and we don't have many members yet, but I'm hoping it will grow.

If you're really an R&B fan, J.J. Barnes is a security guard at my work. He sung on many labels and co-wrote (and sang) "Chains of Love," which was covered by Detroiters The Dirtbombs.
