Checker / Chess - Fontella Bass - Rescue Me

Recommended Posts

What happened regarding the DEMOs Just don't see many about.

Checker_1120_R.gif

Anyone seen a DEMO for these two?.

------------------------------------------------

Different Designs throughout the Labels History, "Rescue Me" being the Hit appears on almost All.

Checker_1120a.gif The "Checker Board" Variation,

DEMO's Extremely Difficult & the Red Label "Checker Board" not easy to find.

Followed by the Blue & White Checker.

Haven't Scans at the moment for this Design.

Many Thanks for the U.K. DEMO Scans, Obviously in the U.K. they re-promoted using a DEMO,

even though it is so well known, second time around.

But in the U.S.A. they appear to have continued to issue possibly without producing a DEMO.

Amazes me especially with the first copies as it was to supposed be a turning point for Chess (Motown Style Recording)

Not seen a DEMO, Yet, for the Blue & White Checker Variation either.

I wonder if it simply stayed on catalogue throughout all the different variations.

However, that wouldn't explain the lack of DEMOs when first released. :thumbsup: Definitely unusual. :unsure:

There appears to be little documentaion regarding Coloured Vinyl across the labels.

Wonder if it was an in house press or test piece, not seen one on Checker/Chess

Quite Rare I would say.

I prefer the British black and gold Chess label meself (I know, noone asked merolleyes.gif )

I remember the thrill of finding my British Black & Gold CHESS "Rescue Me"

in a Second Hand Shop, way back at the start of my collecting.

Now they're BOTH very nice.

So unusual to see on a CADET Label

Plus

The Blue vinyl, never seen either before, Many Thanks.

Just bought this Vinyl Variation, Unusual font size and Credit Layout to my others.

It has been suggested to me that it was from the first batch or TEST stage of production.

However, It could be another Pressing Plant, I'm trying to find out more regarding this.
