Billy Hawks - Oh Baby I Believe Im Losing You

Posted

anybody know where i can find a copy of Billy hawks - Oh Baby i believe in losing you on 7". i think they re-released it around 1996 on BGP with another artist on the B side. it always fits into my set and ive only got it on a 12". carrying just a box of 7's is my goal and this one omission sticks out. just cant leave it at home when a PA is calling....

THATS THE MAN!! tracking it down is easier said than done, dont think they would have sold that many copies.i saw it being played in the Lock Tavern on chalk farm road a few months ago randomly, Ebay has been a big blank and Discogs as well but i bet there are a lot of old Acid Jazz heads out there with a copy in their loft ...

Thats bit lazy isnt it - Djing - Playing off a reissue because its on 7 rather than playing the original on 12" Actually forget the 7" just play it off a copied CD! :(

The original isn't on a 12 it came out in the 60s, it's on the 'heavy soul' lp, the 7 and 12 are both legal uk reissues

There's also a French picture sleeve 45 from the 60s, if I remember correctly it's on Stateside.

As rare as hens teeth.

But the LP also gives you the amazing 'You've Been A Bad Girl' which is (IMO) the best cut on the LP and never had any release on 7".

The BGP seven was at the time thought to be the first 7 inch issue, I think the French Stateside release only became known about afterwards.

It was limited to a 1000 copies and they all sold out.

The BGP is in the 90s the french is from the 60s - How can it be the first even if someones deluded mind thought so!

The relevant word is thought. No one knew about the French release until about 5 or 6 years ago. It is that rare a records

the problem is carrying a box of 7's and one 12"! as ive got the LP. any hot tips leading to owning a 7" would be welcome.
