One of my alltime faves, shame that nearly noone bothers with playing a few ballads in their sets nowadays...

Chalky/Gerd, thanks for posting some truly awesome beat ballads. Ray Pollard is deep soul in my books, but a gem nonetheless. Jimmy Radcliffe - My ship best version by far. Gave my copy to the missus and regret it right now :wink: . Little Ann is a gem. First heard it on a tape a mate recorded from the Great Yarmouth weekender radio shows back in 1990/1991 and immediately fell in love with it. Tho have to say it's really at the very slow end of what I consider a beat ballad.

Here's another one for you, Rocky Roberts - If he could. Might be a tad too fast for a beat ballad but it's such a full production in your face sort of sound it surely fits in this thread. It's from a western movie "Tom Dollar". The only releases I know are a french EP and an argentinian 33 rpm 7"

Donald Jenkins Somebody help me

John Bowie. Never felt so lonely

Was going to post the Jerry Butler version of "giving up on love", but in view of the above posts, I'll go with my favourite JB track instead...

"I don't want to hear it anymore"

Crack on Dave and please post Jerry,s version up, great versions posted up by Munchkin but, for my money, Jerry,s version is the Daddy, Jock put it on tape for me about 25 years ago and I have been totally hooked ever since.

Don't think it was mentioned before. agree with you, great tune. mine's a nice Verve demo. Apparently a big belgian popcorn oldie.

Here are a few more not mentioned so far. Some of them pretty poppy/blue eyed but great nonetheless

Dick Hafner - Go 'way tears

Peggy March - Losin' my touch

Maxine Brown's version of Peggy March. Quite different. Don't know if this ever made it on vinyl. Have it on CD only.

Dee Dee Warwick - I can't go back

Here ya go mate.

Nice but I wouldn't call it a Beat Ballad myself, more of a Blues Ballad. If you like that then you'll most likely enjoy Merle Spear's "It's Just A Matter of Time"

Kev, posted JB earlier (post #47) ... you must pay more attention :D

Agree with ya mate, Jerry Butler for me is the tops on this. Quirky little number by Little Jr Jesse as well which has grown on me. compared to the other cuts it sounds a bit oddball but I kinda like it mainly because it is a bit different.

If there could be a best "beat ballad" LP how about this one - UK Stateside -"An Album Full Of Soul".

Brooks O'Dell, Freeman Brothers, Big Dee Irwin plus great tracks from Clyde McPhatter,Betty Harris, Gladys Knight and Eddie Billups.

Got it from Cologne, Germany, near mint condition.It has a price sticker from Cob Record Centre,Porthmadog for 90 pence. Paid twenty times that but still not bad . Anyone know what it goes for?

Also anyone know who at EMI in the sixties compiled this ,and others like it. I read somewhere it was Trevor Churchill, but this LP has Dave Godin's taste all over it.
