Good Question that is Mate. I personally haven't seen one.

It should exist, and I do remember someone years ago that reckoned to have seen one.

Love to see a Scan if it does.

Well, it could be the same occasion that drifted word of mouth to me all those years ago.

I remember when I bought the U.K. DEMO, Thinking "One Day", but so far that day hasn't arrived.

Never seen one, never mind the chance to purchase a copy.

The obtaining of a demo copy of " TAR " , has always been a bit of an holy grail quest for me ........

Since I first heard the record when adam was a lad , I have searched high and low , never coming across one , or met or spoken to anyone , who has seen it , or had in their possession , a copy .......

No doubt someone will now prove us wrong ......

Certainly are a lot of unanswered questions.

With some records, you just can't explain why they are so ellusive.

Things do turn up now and again, a few surprises, but when we have all been looking over the years.

It's no wonder that People come to their own conclusions, about the existance of these records.

Trouble is, as soon as you do ..................................................... a copy turns up. biggrin.gif

I've never clapped eyes on a TAR demo either.

Is the Earl Wright on Virgo 'Them love blues' the same geeza? A good slab of Northern with a strong vocal to it too.

Ive never seen one, heard a story that the 45 was "rushed out" for the Dylan cover B side

and never made Promos.

Also it is apparently John Andersons least favourite record .........

I am unsure as to whether the two are the same gentleman , as when I attempted to seek out some background on " TAR " years ago , I was led to believe that ER was a pseudonym for David Axelrod .......

just posted Malc that ER is a pseudonym for HB Barnum, will double check the Cleethorpes program from last year, sure it's confirmed in there. The band played Thumb A Ride prior to him coming on stage.

Lovely story, but another Northern Soul untruth.

Earl Wright, Alexander Patten, Frank Polk, Ernie Andrews, H.B. Barnum - The Record (baby I Love You) and many more titles are also not on promo.. for some reason Capitol went through a whole period in the 60s through the # 54.. / 55.. / 56.. series when Capitol did not do PROMO'S, but i don't know why. Capitol Promo's started again with series 57.. Patrice Holloway, Thelma Houston etc etc.

Thanks for that John, I was only thinking last night that I'd never seen a demo copy of Frank Polks "Love is dangerous"!

It is a track called, 'Testifyin' '.

It is actually Bernard Purdie and it is taken from his highly collectable (breakbeat scene) 'Soul drums' album on US Date.

The added effects are naturally from Saxie Russell's 'Psychedelic soul'.

I suspect that there is truth in both views on this. David and HB were best of friends, and this is probably a record that David and H came up with in the studio, and then came up with a pseudonym for when they decided to release it. Getting David to remember any of these one off projects is pretty impossible though, like many he find it easier to remember the big hits, than the day to day productions.

:thumbsup:

Earl Wright was a DJ in LA.

Rather like Sylvia Robinson did Lonnie Yougblood with TON OF DYNAMITE using Frankie Crocker.

No promos exist as the record was pressed and pushed out to take advantage of the A side "Like a Rolling Stone" Bob Dylan. It bombed and no further action developed.

In addition the Beatles records at the time took precedent at the plants so some tunes were not done as demos.

The Human Beinz is scare on demo as it was a chart hit leased from Gateway hence collectable prom for the yanks.
