The Tams – This Precious Moment 7"

Recommended Posts



Maybe someone can help me to see things clearer with Tams - This Precious Moment ...

I am aware of different presses and versions :


I know about a 1982 Supreme belgian press which song I love.

Then, there are two different takes on 1978 yellow Sounds South label : one with sax in it, one with violins (the same version as the belgian press).

And I am a bit clueless when it comes to the 1978 red Sounds South press ... How many takes are they with this one ?


I think part of the answer is in the cat# number : according to discogs, there are two numbers for each press (red and yellow) : S0 14098 and S0 14099.


I want to buy the violin version, how the hell should I proceed ?

My yellow One is/was different than the Belgium one , I cant play it as I just sold it but I know it's not the same as above  :no:  


The Yellow one has the Sax in the beginning

That one above doesn't match the picture, i'm sure that's from the album.

I had both red and yellow at the same time and i never noticed any difference.

do you know what I can't bloody remember what my Yellow one sounded like DOH ! but this one off youtube


Swifty  :thumbsup:

I can see why Laura didn't want that mix, its inferior to the normal version.

The recording on this is not lifted from the Yellow labelled version 45…….Must be a later mix from LP or some other release ? People do these sort of things all the time on Youtube. They lift a scan of a 45 from somewhere and a sound clip from another source.

 The red and yellow 45 versions are both identical recordings and the Belgian copy sounds the same too….

Just a matter of interest ,what was 1st? Red or Yellow? I was under the impressive Red. Just been looking at prices and the yellow is listed on line at £99-160, yet Red at £88. Am i missing something here, cos i never thought it was hard to find both colours.
