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.

OK, OK, you know I'll bite...and no one mention the fact that my Bunny Sigler is missing the tri-center!

Cameo and Parkway:

:facepalm:

Very Very Nice Mate.

Interesting to see BOTH the CAMEO & PARKWAY used separately,

rather than the "CAMEO-PARKWAY" Logo used by quite a few other countries.

There's a large bunch of Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell, Orlons and Dee Dee Sharp releases over here, but that is about it, sadly. The Bunny Sigler is rare...took me 3 years and I couldn't miss it, even without the tri-center...I'll upgrade one day!

:rolleyes:

  • VICTOR COMPANY OF JAPAN

There is the USA Release number GORDY 7022-A.

True, the Victor group were pretty thorough! The Japanese Motown label would have three codes on it:

1. the Japanese catalogue number (JET????),

2. the Japanese matrix number (MOT????)

3. the US catalogue number (TM????/GL????/S???? etc)

The Globe label releases did not have the Japanese matrix code, as they didn't start those until they fired up the Motown logo.

The vinyl would have the US catalogue number machine stamped into the deadwax, along with various other machine stamps.

Many Thanks once again, as you say the Victor group were thorough.

Fascinating stuff, all happened way back in 1963.

I remember playing this at the Youth Club 1969/70ish (Early 70's) How time flies, the first copy I had was on a FLASHBACK Re-Issue & then on Stateside.

One of the older lads had a FLASHBACK copy so I searched for one and found one.

This copy arrived today, little did I know back then that I would still be collecting the same record in 2011.

Kinnell no wonder I got so many calls on it, over a dozen people after the same record is really unusual, had a feeling it was rare but didn't realise just how rare - cost me £32, thought I might as well just double what I paid for it. Sold it for £60. Oh well....

A wonderful Varied selection, reminds me a little of the UK "LONDON American" label releasing from many different US Labels.

Lots of good stuff as you have already pointed out.

I have about 5, but will be looking for some of the others now.

This might be of interest to Mod/Beat collectors.....Brazilian and released two years after UK....The "Somebody Help Me" side has a handclapping "lets go..lets go" intro which is new to me.....i e mailed a stevie winwood collector who suggested it could have been "spliced " on from another tune by those devious South Americans to make it more radio friendly ..any ideas?

Sylvia Robinson on 1973 Irish London.

Picked this up this week and had to look twice at the label. The UK labels were using the boxed London labels at the time.

Strange that the irish were still using the old black and silver labels from the 1960's!

Sean's right about the Bob Cuban, it's the same as the Darrell Banks I put up earlier, if you look closely at the 12 O clock position it says just after the His Masters Voice bit (NZ)
