Couple of wants

Recommended Posts

Giving this thread a bump on Steve's behalf so as not to upset the mods any further.:wink:

Not really much help to finding you a copy of the Love Committee UK Test pressing, but the earliest thread about it is here: https://www.soul-source.co.uk/topic/65170-love-committee-tired-of-being-alone/


Here's a scan of my copy: 


The flip side is blank and the only info in the runout is SPSR 427-1

Hi John

Thanks for re-posting this for me (still after BOTH Gil Scott Heron and Love Committee 45's by the way)

Thanks for the info and the scan - i do remember the original thread and re-read it just now too, so thanks again

Problem is, on the test pressing, it still doesn't give us a clue to which UK label it was destined for, as SPSR 427-1 doesn't fit in to Salsoul or Gold MInd listings? I presume it was for Salsoul so it must have been a pressing plant numbering system, as i picked up a Diana Ross TP with SPSR-399 number and i guess there will be more but only did a quick check before typing this? Any more info gratefully accepted?

Hi Steve,

I did a bit of researching into the SPSR series a while back on Facebook - I can't think off hand which group it was (if any) but it was concerning this actual record and the series is an EMI related pressing.

I found most of the info about it on 45Cat, but no mention of this 45, but it's easy to work out the number 427 relates to a 1977 'release' Check out these links and you'll have a better idea, it seems the series used 'SPSR' and also 'PSR' with the same numbering continuation


A few 'SPSR' releases here: http://www.45cat.com/45_search.php?sq=Spsr*&sm=cn


'PSR' here:  http://www.45cat.com/45_search.php?sq=*PSR+*&sm=cn

Your Diana Ross single is of course "Love hangover" - as can be seen at number 37 in this list: 


I could go on, but I think you get the idea - the only other one I think I have is the Stevie Wonder "Christmas Greetings From Motown 1977" at number 42

But this really ought to be on another thread - not on your wants!

Good luck!
