When I first embarked on collecting Japanese presses I had no reference books, no listings and basically no idea what was released! None of the Soul collectors or shops specialised in or showed any interest in them, to my slight surprise...was their heritage as I saw it.

As the months clicked by the collectors would bring the few pieces they had to the meet ups, with most happy to move them on to me. It seemed that they only ever bothered with them if they had a good looking sleeve featuring photos not usually spotted on album sleeve art.

I then caught a lucky break in one old, old record store...a fantastic find for vinyl as it had around 10,000 original US 45's in it...and that leads me to the sleeveless Japanese copy of Lada Edmund Jr pictured above! It was literally within the first handful of discs I flicked through...in fact I didn't look at it too closely and actually thought it was a Canadian copy! Finding such a classic Northern track followed quickly by more and more pointed to the fact thst the stock was untouched by a Northern Soulie...boy did I score! Anyway, it wasn't until I got back home (with large stash if vinyl!) that I clocked that it was a Japanese press...shocked!

The store owner also had some super rare original record company catalogues from the 60's that he was kind enough to sell me...and that started the construction of my database fuelled by finding the Lada Edmund Jr...and the fact that none of the collectors had EVER heard of it existing! The copy with the sleeve popped up about 12 months later...double shocked...and the research, digging, cataloging and book writing continues!
