There's a lot of them but the only one I can ever remember hearing out, and this was way way back about 1975, was Love Is Like An Itching In My Heart, which was actually booted on a 45.  They're all LP tracks I think.

He did loads but maybe they were local biggies, for instance the one on the Kent lp above, never heard it anywhere except on that LP.

He did stacks of soul covers, Twine Time, Land of 1000 Dances, Nothings Too Good For My Baby (included on UA Northern LP), Cool Jerk etc

Everything he did is just not quite right for djing imo. He does an inst version of 'I dont need no doctor' which would be great if it wasnt ruined by heavy guitar solo. I think I nearly thought about playing his 'drums a go go' 45 once, it uses the kinks 'all day' riff with drum breaks but is pretty shit in the final analysis.

edit - oops, that last one's hal blaine sorry.

Listening to this the other day, quite a nice version.

Sped up a bit and equed, it works...quite an afro Cuban  feel.

I'm sure mine's on UA. It's been years since I've seen it so I could be wrong.

My copy is on UA, so you are right.
