Hi, i used to have a Silhouettes white label boot, bought at Wigan, probably about '76, dont think i've still got it, cost 50p at the time, if i remember rightly. Would have been better off buying the Goodway orig that my mate bought for £5!!!!!! Think i've got a Eddie Taylor somewhere, with the highly collectable biro writing on label!!!!

I noticed someone selling white label pressings of Martha Reeves - No One There on Ebay a while ago, so obviously the tradition lives on!!!

I've got a Hollywood Persuaders "Hollywood A Go Go" B/W Marsha Gee "Baby I Need You". Not sure if that had something to do with Pete Lawson?

Those were all pressed at the wrong speed! Way too fast.

Has anyone else seen Prince Philip Mitchell I'm So Happy b/w Benny Troy I Wanna Give You Tomorrow on Silver Top, large centre US 45? I remember Manship saying this was rare on one of his lists around ten years ago, had this since the mid eighties, no idea when they were done though.
