have you ever dreamt up a record that didnt exist? a complete figment of your imagination? i remember a dream i had a couple years

ago where i was digging thru a bunch of 45's in some sort of abandoned library with really high ceilings. the bookshelves were about 20 feet

tall, and up on top were boxes of old 45s. i was pulling stuff out and playing it on a portable record player and found some amazingly perfect

soul 45.. i was listening to it and everything....then i woke up...and had to admit to myself that i could never get that record, because it doesnt

even exist haha.. wish i could remember the name of it..

more frustrating to know it was never even recorded hahaha

I have!

I was at the 100 club (in my dream) and Ady played a female version of the Five Chances - Stranger I Love You (Finch).

I can't stand the Five Chances but this female version was incredible.

Any chance you could find it Ady? :thumbsup:

Forgive me for going off topic but I heard a female version of Jimmy Robbins I Just Cant Please You in a bar in London. The music was played through a computer system. Idid ask the barmaid who it was but she just looked at me as if Iwas daft. Does a female version exist? Wrighty.

Jacob - I have a dream like that at least once a fortnight - it's always involving me going to a junk shop or record shop and looking through boxes of singles. How your brain does it, I don't know, but every record you look at has proper labels and titles. I had the dream lqst week, I was actually in the USA (something that would never happen in real life) and I went into a junk shop and found loads of records but the weird thing was, there were no US records, just UK and European. The only one I can remember distinctly is an Animals 10" on French London :thumbsup: this of course does not exist...but yeah, a really common dream for me - though I never remember how any of the songs go

Don´t know if it does, but i was watching a film a couple of weeks ago( rather late after a few beers) and heard a female version of Bud Harper-Wherever you were, but in a wierd strange style did i imagine ithuh.gif Or has anyone heard it?

Yep.

As is usual for me, I can sing a snippet of 'my' song then ask what it is. Unusually for me, I can answer my own question with artist, label and title.

Mary Wells on Tamla. "Two wrongs don't make a right". A tearjerker recounting how Mary took revenge on her cheating man by doing the same to him, but realised, too late, that two..... you can guess the rest.

I can hear it playing in my head now, it's a corker! biggrin.gif

I dreamt, years ago that I found an alternative vocal track to Eddie Parkers "Love You Baby" called "The Spotlights On You". The lyrics were amazing, about how his girl always wanted to be famous, but she gave up her stage career for her man... Probably my favourite unreleased, unrecorded record ever! :-)

I'm gonna start asking Djs at local nights to play this ............. "haven't you heard it, it's a big Sean Hampsey play (in his head)"

I have had a recurring dream that I have a box of Bill Hortons' 'I Wanna Know' on Shrine (rather than Kayden) for some unexplicable reason and I wake up in that half awake feeling that I'm going to make a shed load of money selling them... I've had this dream on and off for the last 5 or 6 years.... Weird what record collecting does to the brain!

It's an oldie now, Dean.

Must have been over 35 years ago I dreamt it... so its probably played out now!

Fascinating stuff Sean. The next time you get down here I must introduce you to a local bar called "The Priory" which will love this story and serve you up a great cocktail.........

I actually took this a stage further by putting in print some none-existent records on my Vinyl Junkies list around '77. I had a GREAT Stanley Mitchell invented track but I can't remember the title dammit..........

I got obsessed with artists and titles from looking through lists to the point where, if an artist or title appealed to me, that would often be enough for me to try and get the record. I liked the mystique of certain names - Duke Browner, Bob Relf, Bobby Treetop, the Tartans, The Wingate Love-In Strings, the Detroit Executives, the Kadoo Strings, Jimmy Conwell, Len Jewell etc, etc. Who were these people with such great names and such great f*ckin' records.....?

Surely the first acknowledged 'invention' must be Toby Turner's "My Room Is 6 by 6" on Musicor? Everybody wanted a vocal to Earl Van Dyke's "6 by 6" and someone invented one.........

It's called 'creativity' Ian. :lol:

And my 'Dream Tune' was a whole lot better than that Capanni shite you've been peddlin' lately.

Any road up.... aren't you at Cleggy this weekend?

No mate. Just got back from a gig in Ibiza on Wednesday and going to Portsmouth later today......anything to get away from the 60 pages of bloody label copy that I've cranked out this week!

i,m convinced ive heard a vocal to the brothers "are you ready for this" called "taking you home to see mama", and i,m convinced it was on something like seaside special or something similar, just a dream or reality, also i think i remember having a knackered copy of magic corner by belita woods years ago and playing it in my bedroom, cant remember if i had it or not, where i got it from, old age, strong beer, its all merging into one !

When I came back from allnighters, with a buzzing in my ears, and tried to sleep i would always hear the same record playing.

Years later i found out it was "How Can I Forget" - Joey Dee Inst. Hum it now! and you will find out what I mean!!!!

Yeah. I had a dream the other night where I found this record. It was a UK girl singer from the 60s singing over the top of the old, "Tetley Bitter Men" theme (!) It had a label, an artist name and a title. The lyrics were nothing to do with Tetley Bitter (nor the Men who took their name from it). And in my dream, I actually did some research and found out some background info on the singer. When I woke up I could remember all these details but alas, they are all gone now...

..Anyone got it or know what it is?

(btw, Mary Wells, "Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right" actually exists).

PS There also is a vocal version of "Are You Ready For this?" but it's called, "Get Ready For This," not, "Gonna Take You Home To See Mama" (although maybe, "get ready for this.." is an invitation to prepare for the impending visit to the maternal domicile.....). Got it somewhere but it's not all that good so I can't be arsed trawling through to see who it's by and you probably know it anyway...

The Brothers also did a sequel called, "Were You Ready For That?"..played at the legendary Loft in NYC, apparently. Not bad, but in the way of most sequels not as good as the original.

So there is. How bizarre. I wasn't consciously aware of it before.

I just had a listen on YouTube and it's much earlier sounding than 'mine'. The tune & lyrics are different too. Mine is about 1966-67 I think.

So it's finally come to this...I'm giving my opinion as to when a record that doesn't actually exist was recorded. I've finally gone outside and met meself coming back, as they say.

get ready for this by revelation is not the vocal to are you ready for this !, i can see it now "taking you home to see mama", surely out of all us sad people on here someone must be able to get a tracklisting of artists and songs from seaside special !

Oh sorry. I didn't say "the vocal to," I said "a vocal version of". Obviously not the same backing or arrangement but certainly the same notes played in the same order. Of course it is!

I listened to it again though, and I will admit I was wrong about something-it's actually really good.

"Take you back home to see Mama", indeed....:rolleyes::wink:
