Inspirations

Recommended Posts

Just seen one in sales the Charles Diamond one, and I know there is the rare version but are there any other versions or boots, sorry if it's been done before.

 

Charles Diamond is the same as Inspirations basically, it's a re recorded vocal, equally as good as the original.  We just called that pink label one a 'pressing' but nowadays it would be described as 'an official reissue'.  I don't think it ever came out again, and there are only one or two original copies of the first version.  Magnificent record.

Thanks for that, I have one that's on an orange Breakthrough and I assume it's a boot but can't find any info on it.

Have you considered the possibility that you may be colour blind?

 

Hint: if most lipstick also looks orange there's a good chance you are :D

I guess the question about the orange copy is more related to the artist, if it's credited to The Inspirations, it's original. If it's Charles Diamond (and the label is orange) then I can't be sure as I've only seen those on a pink label.

 

Has anyone got a scan of the Charles Diamond release with an orange label?

Actually I completely mis-spoke just then. What I meant to say was how about we swap my pink one and some cash, say twenty quid, for your orange boot...?

There's two possibilities here.

One, it's an original.

Two, it's the reissue with a good quality photocopy of the original label stuck on it.

I'll take possibility one please :) , if it's a photocopy Pete then it would fool me although that's not hard to do, like I say though the only others I've seen are the pink ones and just assumed that this was a boot/reissue of it.

So I was right - reissue with fake labels - it'll have a delta number (triangle) 102391

Yes it does, also has Gold Q - 1 the g looks like a six, aaaaah well at least I know now just seems odd that someone would go to all that trouble, thanks for your help.

The vocal on the original version is painful.

 

None of em could carry a tune in a bucket.

 

No wonder it's so rare.

 

Ah that's harsh, I just listened to the instrumental, beautiful, the second version, phenomenal, and the original version, superb.  I think it's the same vocalist on both.  And he does a great job on the original as well.  Did I ever tell you about the time i 'found' him before anyone else did blah blah blah...

The original version features Johnny Hendley on lead .... It has been discussed before but I don't have time to find the thread ... Version 2 is Charles Diamond a.k.a. Charles Perry

Going by his other two records, the Inspirations vocalist does not sound like John Hendley, Andy, to my ears anyway.  I know you probably got that from the horse's mouth but doesn't sound like him.
