I love discogs!
go to a record store. they still exist and are more than likely full of all the stuff you've been looking for.
My first source, of course, was iTunes... Then Amazon. I didn't find anything...
The tunes, by the way, were :
Bernard Wright- "Who Do You Love"
Monie Love- "Full Term Lover"
When I Google monie I only seen illegal downloads
Discogs is best bet , get it on vinyl and then record it

Well, what I do. And the only thing I can do is wait. And it may show up. Happened to me before.

discogs is the best source for obtaining "hard to find" tracks. A lot of times they aren't so hard to find after all (that G&D record for example), but the label/artist/rightsholder has yet to license or distribute it for the digital market. And if it's an old one, not considered "classic" or in-demand, it may never be available digitally. A lot of times it isn't worthwhile to cover the costs and effort of digital distribution for an old release that's going for $2 mint on discogs, for example. Other times, there is a question of who owns the rights.
Also, as someone above mentioned, you'd be surprised how often you can find tracks on overlooked compilations, where the original press may be going for large sums of money...but there it is, available on CD or on some cheap "TIMELESS TECHNO OF 1996!" 2x12." It's worth doing your research on Discogs.
And there, kids, is why you should always keep at least one turntable and quality cartridge around. Otherwise, you WILL miss out on a very large part of our musical history.

A truly rare track to me is something like this: -
When I made my last mix I needed that track to be able to complete it, but none were for sale at the time, either on Discogs or eBay. It's only ever been released on 1 vinyl run. I ended up ripping it from YouTube and people may frown at that, but fuck - the alternative was to wait around for months and then pay nearly £200 (over $300) for a record that I was only ever going to play once. The anti-piracy crowd may tut, but if I had bought that record for £200, the only person that would have seen any of that money is the person selling the record, not the artists or anyone involved in creating the track.
