Gino Washington 45 discography is mind-boggling and I would suggest that several of the items listed don't exist...also has anyone ever seen the Atac LP?

Yes,

Rod Shard had a couple of copies of the Atac LP through his shop in Manchesters Afflex palace in the 1990s.

Think he was knocking them out at about £50 - £70 a pop.

Wish I'd bought one now.

WOOF!

Obscure R&B artists

Some good stuff there and also have a look at the discographies one if you get the chance, the Gino Washington 45 discography is mind-boggling and I would suggest that several of the items listed don't exist...also has anyone ever seen the Atac LP?

link

I've seen the album as well. Tim Ashibende had a copy for sale at one time.

Regards the 45 discography, that's acurate as well. Which do you think don't exist, and why Pete ?

I'd question these, especially the dates, and according to this there are 4 official releases of Rat Race from the 70's...you saying you agree with that?

DO-DE-RE ? GINO WASHINGTON Like My Baby (Instrumental) / I'll Be Around (When You Want Me) (Instrumental) 197?

DO-DE-RE ? GINO WASHINGTON Like My Baby / Like My Baby (Instrumental) 197?

ATAC 2830 (hand written label) GINO WASHINGTON (We're In A) Rat Race / Oh Not Me 1975

WASHPAN 854 GINO WASHINGTON (We're In A) Rat Race / Oh Not Me 197?

WASHPAN 32943 GINO WASHINGTON Rat Race / ? 197?

W.M.C. 358 GINO WASHINGTON Like My Baby (Instrumental) / Rat Race 197?

I'd have to agree with you Pete.

Only ever seen to my knowledge this release on DO-DE-RE WC-358 GINO WASHINGTON Gino Is A Coward / Like My Baby (Instrumental) and judging by the compiler's lack of information, no label number so has he/she.

WMC 358 to my knowledge is Like My Baby b/w Gino Is A Coward.

Never seen or even heard of the ATAC 2830 release.....has anyone else?????

I would have to say it's not accurate and based purely on hearsay (especially as there are no release numbers etc) and until see conclusive proof that they all exist I doubt I would be persuaded otherwise.

Reminiscent of the Just Brothers & Honey & Bees that are supposed to exist on Wand, until I see them I won't believe it whistling.gif

Some of us do have lives away from the PC, and have proper jobs as well :-)

I'll concede that the lack of dates do make it slightly dodgy looking, but here's the discog that Flynny and I came up with when we tried to work it all out chronologically.

There are definitely at least two release on De Do Re, but I can't remember which two I've seen.

The Atac 2830 is, as you'll note below, only rumoured, however it's a long standing rumour, and stands as much chance of being true as it is of being false. especially as there is a catalogue number allocated to the release as well.

Part of the problem with Gino Washington's discography is he owned the Atac label, so released things out of sequence / twice / under different names / as re-presses using the same number etc etc, so you can never be sure you've got it all right.

Having said that, nobody has proved that these records don't exist, and they wouldn't be in the discography if they didn't exist. So I'll stick by my original claim that the discog on that website is fairly good (the one below has more info in it though), until you can prove to me that it's wrong. Which brings me back to why I asked you why you thought it was wrong, if you had proof of it being wrong it would man I could amend my own discography, but it turns out that you don't, so it's just your opinion. In the end it's only your opinion against mine, but you're a Wolves fan, so I wouldn't place much faith in that :-)

I just don't think you can put things in a discog which don't exist - just because someone says they exist, thats no basis to argue that you're right Dave. I based what I said on having been around records for a long time, and I've never heard of many of these couplings - and certainly not seen them or handled them. These are what I have a problem with

Atac 2830 - (We're In A) Rat Race / Oh Not Me - 1975 (Rumoured To Be Only Six Copies Made - All With A Hand Written Label)

Washpan 854 - Rat Race / Oh Not Me - ?

Washpan 32943 - Rat Race / ? - 197?

W. M. C. 358 - Like My Baby (Instrumental) / Rat Race - ?

I have seen both the Do De Re versions of Like My Baby, one is an A side, one is an instrumental B side to Gino Is A Coward. I've actually got WMC 358 in front of me and it is Gino Is A Coward b/w Like My Baby instrumental...so there's one wrong for a start.

p.s. I had no idea you did the discography so don't make/take it personally

I didn't do the one on that site, but it's info like the above I'm after. It wasn't really meant as a criticism of you, it was a question. Why do you think it's wrong ?, I wanted answers like the above, so that I can amend the discog I've got.

I'd still question your judgement for being a Wolves fan though :-)

Already updated the 'SKM' website and credited you Pete.

There's another 425 artist discographies and 153 label discographies on the site for you to have a look at when you've got the time.

Any additions / corrections gratefully received and credited.

having frequented rods shop in aflecks, he said that if he was asked gino would repress things for them so some of the things were probably not pressed till a later day so that is why the numbers may be all over the place.

Interesting point this, could someone clarify these Gino Washington tracks:

Congress 269 - Understanding/Water 1966

Congress 273 - Beach Bash/Hi Hazel 1966

DJM 1011 - You lovely witch/Love me, Love me 1976

Cheers DWMick :thumbsup:

What's the Gino Washington acetate that Rob Thomas plays? It's an early 1970s thing: very 'modern soul'. Pretty good, too.

Also, I seem to recall Dave Thorley playing a Sir George Washington 45 in the early 1990s: is it another in addition to the one listed above? Anyone have any clues?
