Big Frank Murphy

Recommended Posts

Picked up Its all over but the pain today from a guy in america for $20. I personally love this song,buy i havent heard it played since Stafford,and i cant recall ever seeeing it on any for sale lists or playlists or even mentioned in any way shape or form. Just wondered what any of you thought. Also is 11 quid a good price or is it worth about 50p !!!

cheers Tabitha.

Think it sells for about £30 on Philips, Tabitha - got yourself a bargain there!!

Incidentally, I wonder if Big Frank Murphy is actually Big Frank as in The Essences?? Anyone got any ideas on this??

Which Big Frank? Myrphy or & The Essences? If it's Big Frank Murphy he really should decide on a sur-name and keep the bloody thing...(!)...

Great track, havn't heard it played out for many years, well worthy of some spins methinks.

Lots of nice stuff on the label that gets overlooked.

Yep totally aggree. Love 'Broke Your Game' and 'See Me Cry', can't bring other one to mind...

How much is 'Broke Your Game' worth nowadays? I know Shifty listed one for £200...

Frank Dell, Big Frank Murphy, Big Frank & The Essence are all the same guy. Really underrated soul singer. All his records are pretty good at least.

Vastly underrated man, could do with a listing of his releases just to hear more.

So this may rule out Big Frank that plays dominoes down the 'vic. Somebody spilt his pint last week,lol.

If you have Real1 you can hear 'Broke Your Game' here and 'See Me Cry' here. And speaking of 'the same man with a different name'... Is Harry Starr the Harry of Harry & The Keyavas? Same trumendously powerful voice... same singing style... Same man methinks... And is Scotty Williams the TJ Williams of TJ Williams & The Two Shades Of Soul? Christ! Worra mouthful !

Heard it the odd time since the 80's but not very often. Got plenty of life in it me thinks. About £50 nowadays I think.

One and the same. Ray Pennington his real name I think. I'm just doing a cd for his wife of the tracks I've got. Need the a soundfile of the flip to If This Is Goodbye and I'm certain he did another on IPG as Harry & Keyavas any further help much appreciated.

Didn't do any others on IPG, in fact there were only five or so releases on the label, and only one was by him. 'If This Is Goodbye' also came out on End.

Attached soundbite of flip to 'If This Is Goodbye', it's called 'Tears'. It's like 'Sugar Dumpling', he even sounds a bit like Cookie!

My mate Andy Dyson wasn't sure but he though he had another on IPG by Harry & Keyavas and one on IPG by Ray Pennington. Cheers for the soundfile.

Could you send the soundfile off list as an MP3. The one you posted has a VIP extension and players can't read it.

Forgot, there's more like a dozen releases on IPG but I've only the one listed for Harry & Keyavas, I was sure I'd seen another though too.

As far as I know, Mr. Starr had the two End releases, 'Another Time/Step' & 'If This Is Goodbye/Tears' (whih is actually credited to Harry Starr with vocal accompaniment by The Keyavas) and the IPG release.

The file's seazed up so I canny change format. Sorry.
