Obscure - unusual Foreign Releases

Recommended Posts

Here's a rather nice French Vogue copy of Shirley's rather fine "Because I love you" complete with a pretty funky sleeve.

It's quite a while since I last played this 45 so I stuck it on the old Technics before uploading these scans.

Don't know whether the sun's gone to mi head or not but it sounded slightly different to the Calla 45 as I remember it?

A touch slower and a much louder recording. Will dig the Calla 45 out to compare....

I suppose it's about time I added a few to this - although I have put quite a few up before on other threads.

Anyone know how to link your own pictures that's already on the site to this thread? The only way I've managed to do it before was to find the original post and link the picture from there - but that's got to be the hard way, there must be an easier way other than uploading them again?

Most of them are my own copies, but one or two are just scans 'lifted' from elsewhere:

A few from New Zealand:

Yes Paul, BIEM is the publishing company for France & Belgium (belgium for the wooden nickels 45) in the 60's and SACEM later (from 68 to now). but you can find BIEM publishing in other european countries

GEMA for Germany & Holland (and SABAM also)

Cheers

I know this version isn't the best, but just got this through the post purchased for £2 + £1.50 p&p.

Nice label, anyone seen anything on this before? Australian Decca

Also just noticed that on the original 'Decca' sleeve that came with the record there is an address of the record store that I imagine the record spent some of it's time.

The address and record store are;

Rhythm Rendezvous

Hunters Corner, Papatoetoe, PH: POP 87-698

And Broadway, Newmarket, PH 544-738

Anyone any idea where that is??

And here are some bits from my collection. The Earl Grant is from Hong Kong, and the rest are from New Zealand.

Yeah you'll find that many Italian jukebox promos have a different artist on each side, often bearing no resemblence to one another.

Not only a promotional copy ( " Vietata la Vendita " ) but a mis -spelling of Mr Stewart's surname on the song credits .

This is the standard New Zealand Decca label, not Australia. Rhythm Rendezvous is still open in Papatoetoe but the Newmarket location is long gone. They used to be a Instrument & Record store but now are just Instruments.

Same backing as 'Come see about me' but different lyrics - in German!

Rob, it is sung in german but you have a dutch issue, not a german. First issue was german CBS.

Thanks Mate, so that's Australia, New Zealand

then outside U.S.A. & Canada the only other I think I've seen was a release in Japan using the Parkway Logo.

It had one of those nice thin Tri-Centres if memory serves.
