Played By Butch At The Box On Saturday Night

Recommended Posts

On Saturday night at the Box, Crewe a record was played by Butch just before the end of his first set. Titled Like A Rolling Stone, who is the singer? It's not the Bob Dylan song. Butch said that 30 years ago you could buy it for 50p. I'm sure I've read something on here about this record but I can't remember when.

Sadly I couldn't go but was the event well attended ( gutted ) ??

Thanks to everyone who replied. It is Milton Wright, just listened to it on YouTube. It may have been 50p years ago but I bet it's out of my reach nowadays, I'll check the Manship guide later.

It was a Soul Bowl custom press in the 70s - John told me either 300 or 500 made. It's currently well in demand - the clue is in the title of the thread Geoff. I know some north west guys were fighting over a copy recently :lol: and got themselves into a bit of a hot auction over it.

Raising in demand over the last few years, not just recently.

It's a helluva lot better than the other side which is one of the worst vocals I've ever heard!

 

Ian D  :D

 

I am sure we can find you some that were far worse.

It was v popular at the Casino 76-77, after your time m8.  :D

There was a reasonable number in but not as many as I'd expected. But the Burnley allnighter was on as well that night and I'm sure that many who went there would have gone to Crewe otherwise. I only heard about it via a friend who lives in Cheshire. It was a great night, still suffering now with odd pains in my legs and back. I wrote a review of it which I posted in the Events section.

Hey thanks for this post , had this for ages and never played the b side !!!! 

 

Have to agree its better than the A Side though I always preferred The Gallop anyway .

 

"My conversation's oh so trite I say the same thing's every night " great line though could have been Dylan  :D

"I Belong To You" always felt like a tailor-made to me. "Like A Rolling Stone" is pretty great though. Wish I'd known it when the cheapies were available.........

You were off in LA doing "disco duck" stuff by then Ian…..remember I bought some records from you when you sold up…..now they were cheap! Just wish I had access to the sounds in 1974 when they were even cheaper  :D

does anyone know if there's to be a repeat of this Butch @ Box special?

Sadly I was too poorly, or else I would have been there :(

 

There was talk of one if Butch agrees.

I hope there's another one, I was in Bulgaria snowboarding so missed it :(

Offer Mons Dobson a bribe of fine real ales Chalky and I'm sure he'd oblige :yes:

 

This tune in the manner of it's release, rather than the tune itself,  is a very similar thing that happened with the Rotations (Rotations - We Want Freedom - Emandolyn) another tune that deserves to be heard more imhumbleo :)

Was the Milton Wright a legit press ?...my assumption being that it was found on tape & a limited press done, but were they kosher ?.

 

Best Russ

done by john anderson with ollies blessing...john got the master tape from ollie after meetng up with him in the usa..so kosher...but custom made if you know what i mean

Just seen on a list Northernsoul45's, Milton Wright "Like A Rolling Stone" on Satiron for £500! 

 

This is really silly for a record that is not a real USA release record!  It could be on any reissue/special product label and be just as kosher!  It was always in the bootleg/pressings/re-issue sales boxes years ago!
