I think back in the mid 70's she was asked about and said she couldn't remember recording it.

Thats different to denying it his her? Many artist couldn't remember what they did back then, I have trouble remembering breakfast somedays :D I'd be interested to see where she said this?

i

yep i can remember reading that, maybe b&s, it was when she come over on the back of young hearts being a hit and she was asked about it then

think was more can't remember than denying

though sure also read her talking about in a much later interview

Heard this record hundreds of times. I've never believed this rumour.

Why would a barking dog be in a recording studio?

I'd never heard the rumour but have just played all the youtube clips , one of which has an original copy pictured and coudn't hear it , nor could i hear any real difference in sound quality between them

It always sounded as if it was recorded in a biscuit tin LoL

Dog barking in background ! Was this originally posted on April the first ?

Sold one to Brian Rae for £25 he in turn sold it on to Richard Searling( Searling did not start dealing with Anderson until approx. `77) the other two copies i sold some time later. One of the all-time great tracks from those heady- hey days. I got round to getting another copy for myself a couple of years ago, you won`t see much change out of a grand!!

I half remember the denial thing.

She was being lauded for Young Hearts and it was my impression that she denied Upper Hand because she assumed it would be regarded as uncool.

How could you forget your first release?

Gloria Jones did , when she did remember , i think she claimed to have been 12 years old when she cut Tainted Love :D

:hatsoff2: HI ALL my copy I got of my mate in London 20 years ago swapped rare reggae 45s for a pile of northern originals, my copy can be easy spotted as it had an edge warp, that I straightened OK but you can see the scar on it played great, when I sold it I got £200 above the asking price from Mick S, I suppose it was a record for his collection if that's is the case. to get yourself a real copy a trade is what I would want for an unblemished copy? very rare record, as I have had a real one, the boot is one of a very few records that I would play if I was DJing, as all the reggae bits I swapped come out of the RED SHOP DUDLY ROAD WOLVES and cost me a £5 for about 60 records it turned out to be a perfect deal, even though the reggae 45s today would treble the price I got? :g: DAVE
