Norma Jean on E Bay

Recommended Posts

Just spotted this on the Evil Bay and at first i thought that it was a perhaps a different record, but the noticed that it had the same flip as I've taken over so what is the score does anyone know is this a boot where they have the Title slightly wrong I'm taking over your love as opposed to I've taken over or was it issued twice under slightly different titles????

Follow this link for a looksee >>Norma Jean real or boot?<<

Any of you seventies buffs out there have any ideas???

What's the story with this record. I'd heard something along the lines of most of the stock getting destroyed in a fire and Senator Jones (the producer) not deeming the record worthy enough of a re press, hence it's rarity, although it would appear from your post Christian that there were 2 presses of it.

So is Senator Jones, Ray Jones as in Ray J her duet partner on the wonderful 45 on the same label "This is our song of love" pulled off the same album which is as rare as hens teeth allegedly ;o))

Steve,

I'm pretty sure they are different Norma Jeans. I think although i'm not 100% on this that this NJ is Norma Jean Wright who later went on to record the disco classic "Saturday" which got a revamp as a house tune a few years back and was from Ohio. Norma Jean Bell only seems to have been around since the 90's and is a bit of an all rounder playing a lot of the instruments Sax, Keyboards etc and producing as well. I think she also did some work with George Clinton in the 90's, and i think she is a Detroit lass ;o))
