It was a promo only 7"........seems to be fetching £300+

A modern soul boys life is much simpler when the tunes aren't popular with the Northern scene! LOL

Oh well that big phat bassline opening is much more suited to deep grooved 12", so that will have to do me.......

Cheers,

Wouldn't mind a seven at the right price, but won't pay inflated prices.............whatever inflated is!  Twelve will have to do.

 

And Glyn, seeing it priced at £300 doesn't mean it sold for £300 mate! LOL

But most that turn their noses up at programmed drums would see past that if they could find a copy for a couple of quid and sell it for £100.................funny that!

 

You can see it now................."The great Temptations caught the imagination in the 90's with this great tune based on "My Girl", only a handful of promo 45's slipped out............a must have in any collection, grab it now for £100, the price can only rise!"

 

And nothing about programmed drums................... LOL!

Promos?

More likely copies for juke boxes. That's what I always thought. 

Played it as a brand new release at Essence, it appeared about a week before the weekender….dropped it in, took the roof off! Think Steve Plumb had the 7s, and cheap too. You have to be quick to grab a bargain in this old world.

Yes Steve, I'd got them down as copies intended for juke boxes rather than promos.

Maybe the white colour confuses some people into thinking they are promos?

 

When it first got played, I thought it was as a CD track. I don't recall seeing it on vinyl for some time afterwards and that would have been the 12".

The 7" appeared later still and was indeed sold by Steve Plumb at Essence, but they were actually Kev Briscoe's copies that he was selling for him.

That makes complete sense to me John, as I would have bought whatever came first in order to get the track..................so I would have bought it on CD as a new release, grabbed a 12" to get it on vinyl and then chose to swerve the 7" as I'd got my vinyl fix via the 12".
