Release notes 

THE FANTASTIC PUZZLES - COME BACK (Part 1) / (Part 2)

The instantly catchy and uplifting club soul favourite 'Come Back' by The Fantastic Puzzles is scheduled for release on Shotgun Records. The 7" single will be available from 14 January.

The Fantastic Puzzles were from Brooklyn, New York, and had recorded as 'The Puzzles' and as 'The Four Puzzles' with veteran Sam Culley but it isn't known who sang lead on 'Come Back'. A raw demo of the track had featured vocals by Sheldon Turner.

The infectious retro-flavoured song was produced by hitmaker Patrick Adams and the up-and-coming Greg Carmichael. They were prolific and successful at that time but, sadly, not with this particular record. 

'Come Back' was issued in 1975 on the promising but short-lived New Moon label which was distributed by Mainstream Records. It was popular enough with UK soul fans to warrant a release on Pye's Right On! label the following year and its revival is long overdue.

Shotgun Records and sister label One World Records are distributed by Selrec Trading Ltd.

Further information is available from Paul Mooney and Paul Conroy. Radio plugging is handled by Steve Ripley

I also released it on Inferno, licenced it from Bill Downs at Right On!

The Northern scene was imploding so was very small pressing.

Fabulous memory track, memories of the bouncing dance floor at the Ritz in the halcyon days.
