Yes on Golden Gate as well.

DTE had about 9 or 10 releases - got em all tucked away and the Chymes and Chimes were both on the label, along with several General Crooks and a couple of other things that escape my fading memory at this time.

There are a total of 9 records on DTE. The others are:

71: The Chymes - My Baby's Gone Away/Where I Come From

73: General Crook - Gimme Some Parts 1 & 2

75: General Crook - What I'm getting Now And What I'm Used To Ain't The Same/Get Over

76: The Impalas - Think It Over (Vocal & Instrumental)

77: General Crook What Time It Is Parts 1 & 2

The Dushons 45 was also issued on Golden Gate 70 - presumably before DTE.

Label was seemingly owned by Chicago arrenger Burgess Gardner and his brother Walter.

(and I think Bunky Sheppard had a stake in it, too). The Lamarr label (Esquires' "Girls In The City" and two Star-Tels singles) was affiliated to it, too. All the releases came out between March 1970 and November 1971 - both labels!

Enough, already?

I had never heard of the K of S so when i heard Chris Anderton had scored a big hit in the states 9 copies i think and sold them for £1500 each i thought i must get a sound clip of someone and Chalky came up with it. Is it just me or did someone make a mistake and add the 2 noughts at the end, i cant for the life of me see why there is all the hype :rolleyes:

Kings of Soul 'Your Love for Me' came out twice didn't it with a different b side?

and is crap in comparison to the one that's being played.

There was a thread about it on here a bit ago ... have had a look but can't find it .... any chance somebody could locate it please? Cos i'm crap! ph34r.gif

The thread was about a copy of the inferior version that was up for sale with no label on e bay .... just in case anybody feels compelled to be a love and find it.

Thanks :rolleyes:

Ted,

There were actually 10 copies that Shifty and I found...sold 9 and kept one myself. I did`nt know the record when i found it but knew of it. I was`nt 100% with it to start with but after a few plays it really does get you. All our copies are gone now. They came from someone connected with the writer in Illinois.

Joan, There was a version on ebay claiming to be different, it was mashed and went for about $500. I did`nt get to hear it but have it on good authority that it was different. Watch out for the single sided Demos....the wrong side of course!!

Think I`ll be giving KOS a spin at Prestwich this Friday.........

Actually the "wrong side" is not bad as a 60s soul record - if you like 60s (as opposed to northern) soul. And if you catch my drift :thumbsup:

I heard it Chris.... and it definitely was different.... sounded unfinished and had no 'soul' if you can understand that.... just sounded flat.

Yep it definitely was - there was a soundclip on either the eBay auction or the thread about it on here... but can I find the thread anywhere...? :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Rachel, Wow, thats a lot different to what i imagined....more like an acoustic version! It lacks the urgency and passion of the original...or as joan puts it the "soul". I think the vocals may be identical though.......I`ll stick with mine thanks!

i cant for the life of me see why there is all the hype whistling.gif

i heard it for the first time at the lifeline before last and became a bit ADH about it!!!

i think it's the best thing i've heard for a long, long time - out of my league price-wise at moment, but i'm gonna get one someday

got it on a cd which i play at home all the time, but you've gotta hear it in a club to really appreciate it's qualities - that choppy guitar and the manic horns bit, quite heavenly

my mate john made me laugh, he said to me that the "guitar break" sounds like it's played by a five year old kid who wandered into the studio - but then that's the beauty of a lot of northern tunes....the simplicity

spose it will get bunged out on a uk "reissue" label and then be killed stone dead like benny harper though :angry:
