Am guessing these are the same record , with one being a mispress title ? Anybody ever seen a promo ? Do they differ in value ?? g.gif

Two different songs - 'Lazy' is well rare and many bought 'Lady' thinking they'd got 'Lazy' other side is the same though....

another of those Stafford tunes...

As mentioned above two completely different records. Funnily enough I dug "Lady" out the other night after not listening to it for years and it still sounded awesome: great downtempo Northern with a great hook and soaring orchestration.

"Lazy" is appreciably tougher to find but in my opinion not in the same county quality-wise. An expensive Prize Turkey.

B-side on both is the fantastic "I'll be Gone".

Never understood anybody paying the premium for 'Lazy' over 'Lady'.

The best side anyway, IMO, is definitely the flip:

TOMMY TURNER - I'LL BE GONE -

Great record, but for anyone dj-ing in at a soulnight/nighter "Lazy" would be the one to play, as its the best dancer!

Stafford sound if I remember correctly?

I like all three but LAZY's the one I've heard the most. Which is strange as it's the rarest. Kept hearing it played a lot in the Lancashire area in the early 90's. And in my opinion not an "expensive prize turkey" as is claimed earlier in this thread. Sorry, but I like it.  I'll 'plump' for this turkey....

I actually thought I had seen Lady for a bit more now, oh well, its not going to pay my tax bill after all!

you could well be right Jock, not had the time to keep an eye on prices lately unless I'm looking for something that is :thumbsup:

In retrospect I was too harsh. It is also a good slice of gritty West Coast Northern Soul, but from a value for money point of view I'll go for the cheapie.

I bought Lazy from Butch about 7 Years ago for £350 when it was a big niter sound.Bob Hinsley used to play it a lot, It used to go down a storm whenever i played it with plenty of people enquiring about it,as i dont think it was too well known.Mick H took it of my hands when i decidedto sellup. £500 if i remember correctly. what a tune.

Definitely no turkey !!

One of my all time faves and still in the playbox for the oldies sessions.. all 3 tracks great though.

My old copy from Dick Coombes now with Ady Lupton.. got one back on here very reasonably.. 400-500 for a minter..Tough !

still have it - did think about selling up collection about 12 months back but decided against it as i couldn't be bothered to try and load everything onto cd - or really have the heart or the need for the money

also never know - i might get asked to come out of retirement for the odd 60's nite locally - i still love the sounds and get them out of the box once in a blue moon

as for tommy turner - no idea it was even being played - but i wouldn't sell the odd record no! it would be all or nothing i think sorry!
