Any Info On This Rare Soul Merchants Doublesider?

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure this is semi-known by funk collectors. This was on ebay a month ago, from that guy selling some deceased milwaukee collector's records, didn't even crack $150. Last year it was on ebay also, but it was from that shady Japanese seller that kept listing (clearly overgraded) records, shill bidding them, and relisting them. So I don't know if it sold. It generally doesn't come up for sale that much though.

Think I'll stick with the Radiants (& Jimmy James & V's) versions.

you know there's like at least two dozen covers of the song? many of them are from hispanic groups from san antonio.

RE: many of them are from hispanic groups from san antonio.

Bob, do you know why the song was so popular with the 'Mexican' community down there in 'nowheresville' Texas ?

Guess the Radiants version (a national US hit in 1965) must have been a big radio play in the city.

yeah Boba, it was sold in the end.. not to me though. Didn't know he was doing shady business. What i did know is that "ain't no big thing" is a cover, but i mainly wanted to check the pulse on funk side. More soul lovers here, obviously :)
