Is This Obscure?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks and a happy new year.

I have just picked up this tune out of a charity shop and wondered if it was obscure or not?

It's really nice whatever, and the reason i bought it was because of the writer and not having heard it before.

'Wayne Fontana - Come on home' on Fontana 1966 written by 'J Edwards' (Jackie Edwards)?

It's an excellent mid tempo dancer.

I have a sneaky feeling that I have heard it before maybe by Jackie Edwards? might be wrong but seems familiar.

Any info appreciated.

OK, just found out it's not obscure, loads around for anything from £2 - £20., and Just realised it is the 'B' side of 'I feel so bad' Jackie Edwards on the UK re-release.

Thanks anyway

Hmm, what is the difference between rare and obscure?

Thanks for your help, It is a really nice version of the Jackie Edwards track, and whether it's not rare or obscure, still worth the 50p that I paid for it I reckon. It'll stay in the box for a bit.

Are there any other 'Cover' versions of Soul classics that were released on major UK labels does anyone know?

When Tina Turner sings "Stand by your man" that's obscure
