Awful record (IMHO). Plenty of copies around. Don't know where they disappeared to. Ended up with two copies after I bought two 15 count soul packs from two different UK dealers in the early 2000's. Can't see what's so special about it....

Don't know about ebay getting more than Manship these days. He auctioned a copy about a year ago (?) ending up at £250+ and that equals about $400, so not that far off. There was a copy for £250 on angloamericans list recently as well. So obviously this one has gone in demand. Probably wasn't that well known before. I agree about the quality of the recording, but that's part of the charm now isn't it?  :)

I love it!

Great hard hitting raw group harmony soul,

& tbh It`s that poor sound what makes it even more special to me (Imho) 

 

Atb,

 

totally agree with you about the sound quality that's what makes the record.

loved the record for years seems to be in demand nowadays , don't think its worth £300 though...

 

Boff....

First heard this on the soul supply LP ' under the street lamp' I think for allot of folk just it's inclusion on there was enough to want to get it, was with me....I loved the obscure sounding labels on the listing side.... Great Lp's

Strange though, I bought the LP back then and then set about getting all the 45s on it again... That's kinda stupid really.,..laughs..,

Not my favourite on that LP, but just can't bring my self to part with it...

It was probably only really known to collectors as it hadn't had much turntable action at all until recently.  Had brief spins in the mid 80's with Keb.  I started playing it about two or three years ago, still do now and again.

Its not distortion,its just an echo/reverb on recording.Sounds like it was recorded in a tunnel.

Great nighter tune.A friend picked one up at Rugby nighter for a very reasonable price,about 2 years ago.I managed to fight off all-comer's on the bay and win one for song soon after :) .That one ended up in Germany.

Yes but I heard it years before Keb in the mid 80s Chalky

 

I don't doubt that and don't think for a minute it was unknown then.  I did hear it got a brief play at the mecca but other than Keb I have seen no other mention of any other dj playing it.  No one to my knowledge has ever got behind it until more recently.
