as collector who liked to pick up rare uk releases there were a couple i never saw - but only heard of - can anybody enlighten me as to whether they were just folklaw

the tracks were

the volumes - just can't help myself (i think is the right title) - uk Pama - released on american arts

sue lynne - don't pity me - irish emerald - was normally seen on the horrible orange uk RCA

also on the US front

Ascots - miss heartbreaker - mir-a-don - i'm sure i was told by somebody reputable that is was released on mir-a-don as well as (yellow label -can't remember - it was over 20 years back since i last brought a record)

finally uk rarities - forget the EMI demos - seen most of them over the years - anybody seen a polydor demo of edwin starr - i have faith in you --- or a plexium demo of soul joe clements - ever ever

Being useless on UK and European releases I can't help you....

but..Ascots - Miss Heartbreaker on Mir-A-Don....absolutely, though I've not seen yellow, only purple.

The only Volumes I've ever seen on Pama was I Love You.

wasnt this released on UK Fontana

volumes on uk fontana. dont think it came out on pama. never seen sue lynne on irish emerald. i have the bbc`s library copy on uk orange rca victor from 1969.think the yellow label refered to was M.B.S which most copies are on although its a toughie on miradon ( pink/purple )

edwin starr white demo has sold for £500+ but half a dozen have surfaced since jm auctioned a copy a couple of years ago.never seen a plexium demo. seen a few issues of soul joe tho as cheap as £60 recently

Here's the Edwin Starr. A bit battered but that's how I found it. Plays fine though.

Found in a bookshop in Brighton many years ago for £6.

thanks - collecting for 15 years and never saw one - generally found the fontana, philips, mercury and polydor semos harder to find than most - even if not so in demand

I was told by our kid, Dave Moore who used to be an avid British collector that the polydor demo's were the toughest as they only did a 500 run on them. I recall him saying the hardest british one to track down was Tony Middleton.

There was a picture of the Volumes on Pama in Soul Cargo (many years agosad.gif ) but I think it had been "doctored" & doesn't exist g.gif

I still say I'm sure I've seen it. I remember pulling out of a box down the 100club around 1986/7. Didn't think much about it at the time because it was doo wop.

Wasn't it on the Pama album as well?

Yes Mate, I've Seen It.

In Over 40 Years I've Only Ever Held 1 Polydor White DEMO.

That Was Approx 1970 When I Found & Left A Title (Non-Soul) In A Second Hand Shop.

Only Just Started Collecting & Remember Thinking Afterwards Should Have Bought That, Stunning Label.

A Point In Time That Makes Me Realise Just How Special These DEMO Are.

Would Love To Own A Copy, Yes Indeed.

a nice tony middleton uk polydor demo from popsike,unsure.gifph34r.gif

now when i was collecting all those years ago that was a uk release i really wanted - got a paris blues on mala, but "to the ends" was big at the time and i felt over priced on us mgm - funny enough at the time i probably would have got the uk demo for much the same price as a us copy then as nobody wanted uk - even though it's tons rarer - but what a voice that man had

I know this may already have been covered in another post,

but not sure why some have BM before the Number.

My copy obviously doesn't.
