UNUSUAL OVERSEAS RELEASES

Recommended Posts

I've seen some neat overseas releases of Northern records in my time, but this one stunned me when I saw it!!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item=4014762267

What's even more amazing is that it didn't even get a UK release!! Anyone know of any others? I can think of a couple more:

DEE DEE SHARP: What Kind Of Lady

FRANK BEVERLY & THE BUTLERS: If That's What You Wanted

Both these were released in Greece on the Top Tunes label (don't think they sold well out there, so was probably an expensive "Gamble" to release them!!).

India would be quite interesting; though from experience, their releases look very much like their UK counterparts, particularly the Decca or EMI related releases. But it's also worth bearing in mind that India were also pressing 78s until 1968, so what could be out there on 10" shellac?

The 78 format was mainly for those parts of India who weren't yet connected to electricity, and had to rely on portable wind-up gramophones, also still in production in India until the late '60s. Who knows; maybe an Impresions 78 on Indian HMV? It's possible......
