As far as I know, and I am happy to be corrected, this is the only known release of The Impressions doing Nothing Can Stop Me.

Never heard of another release of it.........

Which reminds me of a funny story dating back to my youth. As a regular NME reader in the mid-70s, I would always read the record sales. At this time, loads of Elvis Presley's Japanese EPs were offered for sale by leading record specialists. One day, my aunt caught me reading an ad, and asked what I was looking at. After showing her the ad, she looked puzzled and said "If he's singing them in Japanese, why would anyone want them?"

So come on then - do they sing it in Spanish..doh!

Thats really nice, the Hispa Vox shield is quite attractive! As this was released in a fascist state at the time (I think?), they probably weren't allowed to put out a protest song like Keep On Pushing!

So anyway, anyone know what I should ask for it? £50? £100? It's a great version.

A few years back - 10 or so - there were a few about - probably paid about £15 / £20 then - who knows now though. It did come out in a Pic Sleeve ...

Sean, I've got that BBC acetate and I always thought it was a live recording from a session...though thinking about it, maybe it is the same version. (When I say I've got the BBC acetate I mean Graham taped it for me about 14 years ago)

This was played on Mary Fox's northern Soul show on BBC Stoke on Frday night. I didn't realise this was never a single as it's so familiar. I'll have to dig out the album.

Wow! small world Pete.

I knew my memory wasn' playing tricks on me!

I always thought it was the same version as the LP version... and the Spanish 45. Worth checking it tho' now you have both.

Graham bought my Incredibles Stateside Demo, Garnett Mimms Demo, PP Arnold etc and loads of other big money British stuff off me way back when

Not seen him for about 18 years.

Miss him...

...and the records!

A good while since I've seen Graham.

About 25 years ago I spent many a happy hour at his house going through his records (and yes, he still had the Professionals amongst his vast UK collection).

Last time I saw him was in 86 at Rotherham Clifton Hall "Harlem Shuffle". But i aint seen Hode Nor Hair since that day!

On the other hand, Alf Billingham was in my office only last Friday. See him regularly as he's in the music business and manages some fine talent.

He's getting himself wed, later this year, to a lovely lass called Laura.

Top Bloke Alf. One of the best!

Well done - was about to put up the rear or the cover, but it is Identical to the front.

So I won't bother
