1969 Pete.

Mel was a member of the Visitors who had 2 releases on Bashie/Dakar in the late 60's. "Until you came along" was the more popular of the two. She'll Come Running Back was his first solo release in 1969. He recorded more in the late 70's. His son, Melieck Britt, is also a recording artist.

The Visitors had 4 records. Mel was not a member on the Dakar 45s; he is on their Dispo record and sings lead on the record they released as the Mist on Twinight. He was previously a member of the Versatiles on Staff

also I think she'll come running back is early 70s, not '69, but I can verify later.

I stand corrected, the information I had had been passed on to me by someone who had talked to Mel, but obviously not about his prior releases!

Think that's definitely 69.

I've talked to the Fipi (yes, it's actually Fipi and not Fip) label owner and I don't think he started the label until the early 70s. I will find the track in copyright later today to confirm.

I have also interviewed one of the Visitors, it's online at my website if you want to listen to it.

Tony Warot may be able to help here. He had a demo and I recall it was stamped with the date. I thought it was 69.

I would love that. :(

Had to laugh in the description "I've only played it a few times", only 4 more times before it starts hissing then.

Hissing ??

Is that a regular feature of this ?? I had a copy that started hissing so ditched it - hope it was the press !!!

Pete I think Boba is referring to a person called Fipi rather than the label name in this case. Thats how I read it. Matter of interest came across an LP many moons ago for some kind of Disney film soundtrack. Backing vocals featured Melvin C Britt. Maybe around 82 from memory.

Nope... definitely says 'the Fipi Label owner' and not 'Fipi the owner of the label'

no the dude wasn't named fipi. He did refer to his label, vocally, as "Fippi". I see it says "festival international productions" on it and "FIP" at the bottom but the publishing is FIPI. I don't know what the extra I stands for.

Oh in that case, the label is called FIP after Festival International Productions and it also says FIP on the label twice...

actually it says "FIPI" on the label publishing and FIP on the label once, unless you count the weird logo as saying FIP. Either way, the label owner called his label "Fippie"

Yeah Fipi publishing, FIP on the label twice, most notably where it says FIP RECORDS at the bottom :lol:

whatever, people on here make up all kinds of BS, and I met with the FIP / FIPI label owner at an applebees at 95th and western. the waitress was a total bitch and didn't get us water for like an hour and then yelled at us. I was really mad but trying to ignore it since we were interacting with the label owner. Then my friend who I was with felt really bad afterwards and we had to walk outside for a while. he went to the hospital the next day and it turned out his appendix burst. but he didn't die because it formed like a sac that contained all the crap. they inserted some sort of tube into it and it was draining pus for like 4 weeks.

I was wrong about the date, I found "She'll come running back" in copyright. It's copywritten Nov 6th 1969. It might have actually come out at the beginning of 1970, but it's just around '69-'70. What's weirder is that it's marked as "cancelled". The record must have been released before he joined the visitors but after the versatiles.

Could it stand for Inc. (incorporated)?
