Darrow Fletcher on Crossover

Recommended Posts

Since reading several rave reviews in Mr Pearsons fine soul review and then finally getting to hear 'It's no mistake' by young Darrow about four years ago I'm hooked, trouble is the tapes' a little on the worn side now. I know he recorded several other sides on this and related labels which regularly turn up, this however is proving to be a bit hard. Anyone got any info?

Cheers Jim.

"it's no mistake" is very very very good, maybe a 40£ record and well worth it!

"the moon didn't just come out to give the stars a chance to play" ...good lyrics aswell.. ;-)

Jim, fret not buddy. This little gem turns up regularly on t'Bay, I got mine last year, not a mint copy (??????) but eminently playable/enjoyable and less than 20 sovs inc P + P from the USA.

Get a search going and cross everything.

£20? £40? Jeeez guy's perhaps you should have a go at snaffling them up then as whenever i have seen it (admittedly at inflated dooo prices) it's always been nearer £75 and even £100+ on more than one occasion.

Good luck with tracking down a reasonably priced copy one of my all time faves is that ;o)) My wife bought it for my birthday a few years ago and it shall always one of the especially treasured ones ;O)

Well the boy done good then it's been at least two/three years since i saw it for as little as £50 but there are always anomolies and it has been a quite solid 75 for a good while now and like i said some even try for more. It just one of those that you just don't sell IMO here's a question did he ever make a bad record??? I can't think of one but....

I agree he did MOSTLY good records but "gotta draw the line" isn't my fave and neither is "sitting here thinking" but "rising cost of love" and plenty of others is CLASS!

Bought my copy for 450 swedish krone (about 30£) ;-)

Guess I shouldn't say on list as I bought it as a pressie for J-O-T but he reads the same sales lists as I do so... I paid £75 from Ian Clark a couple of years ago. Top end price IMO, although I have seen it higher since.

He also had a great 70's side on Atlantic, forgot the title and its not to hand at the moment, anyone remember?

Re crossover did he only do the one 45 ?

Cheers,

Jock

I paid £70 for mine Jim. Very nice indeed. Didn't he record a whole LP for crossover? If so did it ever come out or is it languishing somehwere???

Flip it over for the equally good b-side "Try something new" which I pretty recently discovered myself. Good b-sides is always a pleasant surprise!

No way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Karl tell me your kidding i always play both sides of records especially good ones by artists i love !!!! This is the flip of "It's no mistake" right???

Yes John,

the flip to "It's no mistake". Don't tell me you have sold it?! ;-)

Have anyone heard is Atco 45? I think the good side of it only appears on the issue? I've had it on my wants list for years but never seen one for sale.

Regards,

Karl

Just dug "Try something new" out. Verdict in this house is a positive one:-) Got grower written all over it. Personally don't rate it as highly as No Mistake but there's a lovely reverb and I thought it sounded a tad more commercial and suitable for the market it was released into. Its apparently the A side.

Funny thing, I first played the Try Something new side out by mistake (at Roulette sthlm) and was kind of embarrased about it, was just about to flip it over when I realised i was quite good and let it had its play!
