Well, i've asked how many he's got. I know that's now, at least, three of us with a copy...Denbo got himself one too yesterday.

I haven't seen anyone with any for sale anywhere else in the last few months....or of any knowledge of the track. Perhaps this fella has a box of them and then that will be it......Can't see this track ,not, going down well anywhere. I wonder if he sold anymore because of these links.

Nice talking mrtag,

Looks like the seller had 5, seems to have stopped relisting after sales, got one of them based on your recommendation, many thanks very much agree it's a winner.

I smell a Johnny Watson...

I'm fairly sure both sides were available on best of billy Harner Cd so the tracks are certainly available. I also recall that someone was selling a load of V Tone original label blanks around five years ago or so ago. Not that those facts are necessarily related. Makes you think though, eh?.

Naturally I just bought one of course :hatsoff2:

As far as I was aware this was unissued, and Fool Me was the flip side released on Open cant remember what the A side was but it was'nt Check you out.

Check you out has been played but what on and who by I cant remember but I have heard it.

A great record and I wish I had got a couple of copies if its a legit release then could be worth a fair few quid so anyone who's just picked up a copy I would say well done could be sitting on a biggie if theres only a hanful of copies.

Cheers Darren

I bought a copy of this 45 from the seller on eBay, it arrived yesterday and it is definitely a legit 60s pressing. It has got the same kind of hard-to-read raised hallmark/letters (M.S.I. CO. written backwards) "under" the label as the original issue of Epitome Of Sound and many other Philadelphia releases from that time (V-TONE was from Philadelphia).

Mine arrived yesterday too.....in the dreaded plastic bag from the UPS with the message printed on it apologising for "damaging your parcel" whilst of course studiously avoiding saying they're going to compensate you for it, not a good moment but luckily the seller did a fine job packaging it that it withstood the post office's attempts to cause any real harm and inside was a pristine mint copy, phew.

Yep, a deffo legit copy. Seller corresponded with me saying he had got these some 14 years ago....off a chap who bought off distributors, old stock and other peeps in the business.....from 5 to 30 numbers.... Wasn't sure if he had any still in storage, and would get back to me....if he found any more. However, he reckoned he had nowhere near a 25 box kind of numbers. So looks a real deffo legit rarity/odity. I for one would assume this will go HUGE. Something wrong if it doesnt.....

So hiow many of us have a copy 5 is it?

I know it came out on other releases of his but the flip "Fool me" is really pretty fine too :hatsoff2:

Getting the impression from some of the last posts that a couple of the people who did the 7 Buy it nows somehow didn't get the 45??

Well I'm in NYC so no surprise got to me before you, don't give up! Seller is legit so if for any reason he couldn't honour the deal am sure by now he'd have refunded you, how did Denbo get told his wasn't coming? (assuming he was 1 of the 7 BIN's)

Have you ever read Billy's bio, it's priceless, makes him out to be practically the Chuck Norris of soul!

He judged a Miss Nude America contest, and being the only clothed person in the hall, felt compelled to at least moon the audience while reading out the winner's name. So, he did! :yes::hatsoff2:

Enjoy the whole thing:
