'Spoilers Rap'

A superb slab of Chicago cross-over-funky-soul by The Spoilers (on Lock) / The Persuasions (on Erica).

Highly recommended...can't believe this one hasn't ever really taken off big style...has it all!

Question: which came first the Lock or Erica release?

:hatsoff2:

Summer Breeze on the flip? I have this Erica disc somewhere I think.

On the Erica disc, yes Dave...also a fantastic tune :yes:

The Lock copy however has the instrumental to Spoilers Rap, which works nicely :hatsoff2:

I was going to say what I thought came first but if you listen to "summer ride" vs. "spoiler's rap" they're clearly not even the same group. That high falsetto in "Summer ride" is Larry Johnson, lead of the majestic arrows, elevation on crown town, etc. and the group is clearly all adults. "Spoiler's rap" is clearly a kiddie group.

I have it on Lock, got it off ss boss Mike if I remember rightly. Think I put it on a cd swap ages ago, I like it

ah yep, can still remember the conversation about it with Tony :D

always enjoyed the instrumental more than the vocal

fairly sure the story behind the different releases is on here somewhere ?

maybe somewhere else, have read it but can't remember for sure if it was the spoliers first?

Hi Dave ,

i've got the Erica copy too, had it about 18 months, never heard it played out yet though. I am sure it is one that will take off soon.

Have not seen the Lock copy before , which is rarer ?

all the best Frank Norwich.

Hi Frank,

Have had half a dozen on Erica, but only one on Lock...but that simply reflects what is available over here...it may be different in Chicago and downtown Norwich!

Hope you'well,

Flynny

in chicago the persuasions 45 is what shows up, "summer ride" was a hit. however, people like terry gesten have had actual stock of the lock 45. not sure where that leaves the question of "which is rarer".
