thanks for posting this was the only one of the four sides I still hadn't heard yet.

pretty good has the boucy almost "my girl" style bassline and nice lrics.

I have to say the flip is much better to my ears.

I remember seeeing this on ebay when "sweet memories" was going big on the scene and thinking i'd grab it cheap but it sold for a lot of money sad.gif

it's been on ebay a few times, i think it went sort of cheap (not crazy cheap) at least once.

aren't there 3 robert tanner 45s on megatone? i think andy dyson told me once? I think i've only seen these two though.

there is now an update at sirshambling statoing his current situiation so the person who found him mnight be able to find out if there is another 45.

he could have done another 45 with more tracks of the new sounds LP.

i've never even heard anybody suggest this though ? but andy would be one of the people most likely to know.

I just looked at the sir shambling site, the "person who found him" was just the guy from this page:

http://www.djmadlad.com/

I already had been in contact with some associated people, including donny brown, who cut the excellent 45 "fool i was fool I am", who contacted me a while ago after I played his record on my show to ask me to make me a recording of his 45 for him, I asked him a little bit about robert tanner and he talked about him and knowing him but I didn't pursue it because I thought that he had already been contacted, etc. i didn't go into detail about the 45s because people tend to not remember all the details about the 45s from back in the day or have anything anyways. nobody i ever interview ever has any copies of any of their records for example. it would still be interesting to get confirmation from andy whether he was talking about a 3rd robert tanner 45 or that other artist just backed by the jivers.
