Lou Johnson - Reach Out For Me / Magic Potion Matrix Info

Recommended Posts

I have 2 copiies of this 45, One is a light Pink label and has the scratched in matrix number 1373 - 1A which I believe is a counterfeit.

As in John Manships Guide to Bootlegs, Conterfeits and Reissues. In it he says the original has the scratched in matrix number 1373 - 1E

 

My problem is the Darker one of the two has a stamped circle with MR inside and then followed by scratched in BG. 1372 - 1D on Reach Out side, and stamped circle with MR inside and then scratched in 1373 - 1D on the Magic Potion side.

Is this a reissue ?

thanks

Don

Can't see Magic Potion getting booted with reach Out on the other side.  I think it was booted as a vocal b/w instrumental.

Hi Pete,

according to John's book it was ?

cheers

Actually think it was on a maroon or brown Big Top label with Unsatisfied on B side, still can't see why a common chart record would be counterfeited

I have it on UK London, so have no problem with bootlegs!  :D

 

I can't actually remember noticing one though, "reach out" a great song in its own right, has never been in big enough demand to warrant booting.

But as Pete says, if it's in the book, then it must be true  :wink:

I have them on this EP, not sure if it's an early "original" or a later issued "original" ?

I have to say that Lou Johnson is one heck of a singer and 'reach out' is a top choon but I do

prefer Roy Hamilton's version.

The one i have is a pink label styrene press,with the Monarch MR stamp and 1373-1D,delta # 48391-XA on Magic Potion side.

Dave, I think anything under the 100.000 Delta matrix number 'usually' means it's OK.

Mine is pink, boot matrix, but it looks right, print definition is spot on, not expensive or rare, so why boot it ?

I thought the same thing about my vinyl copy of Darrell Banks "Open the door to your heart" which was booted/counterfitted because it was so popular.

Never really had that situation with Magic Potion though.  Massive popularity I mean.

reach out was released around 1963 which, if pressed at monarch at that time, would give it a delta number of between 46000 and 49000. Dave says the number on the magic side is 48391 so it could be good. vinyl copies also have a stamp, not too dissimilar to a bed, pressed into the runout the same as the verve and some mgm records. great record btw
