Carolina Soul are among the most respected sellers on eBay, so it's worth paying attention to their auctions (um, if you are a record nerd, of course). As part of a current auction which ends on Christmas Day — in addition to Parliament's rarely seen Osmium LP, the first Black Merda LP and its follow-up, Long Burn the Fire (credited to Mer-Da) — both long out of print — are up for auction.

We are told that Michael Jackman's excellent feature on the band from earlier this year is part of the reason that they headlined the Hamtramck Labor Day festival. Aw, shucks.

You don't see these records too often. You do see that Mer-Da one, but hardly ever the first one. If you have so scratch left over after the holiday, love Detroit music, here is a chance to own some unheralded and righteous stuff.
