Dolls - The Reason Why

Recommended Posts

I'm probably telling you something you already know about this great lice of N/S, but just in case, this was released 3 times. First time as Linda Burns on Ty-Tex, then as by The Dolls on both Toy & Loma. All these releases happened between 65 and 66 ( I think? not definite about the Toy release?) so not much to choose between them date wise, although it's generally accepted that the Linda Burns is the original, and it's definitely the rarest by a country mile (some say it sounds better? a more northern version, but not sure i could ever tell any difference at all when i had it on all 3 labels?)
On Discogs there's a Linda Burns for sale at £150, no idea who the seller is, or if the seller is on here? Cheapest format is usually Loma at about £60 for a near mint very nice clean no writing or stickers etc VG++ and Toy copies about the same or slightly less (dont think Ive ever seen a Toy WDJ?)
hth btw have you seen the live versions on youtube, brilliant in their sparkly green dresses !

a VG- Loma promo popped up on Ebay today, BIN for $9.99 from a US seller with over 11k positive feedback.. took a chance on it, let's see what turns up. I hope it's not chewed up. Thank you to all of you who have offered copies and I still might go for one, depending on what shape this one turns out to be in. Will keep you posted -- cheers!

Well the Ebay gamble turned out in my favour this time - these arrived today:

They are, most of all, just reeeally dusty. But they look like they'll clean up really well, and they play all the way through without any major flaws. In short, good playing copies - paid $15 for the lot. 

 

Once again, thank you very much to all of you who have offered copies (and sorry to have bothered you for nothing but I wasn't expecting these to pop up!) - take care!!
