Let's Talk It Over - first issue?

Recommended Posts

Quick question chaps,

Spencer Wiggins - trawled SS and the web but any idea what label it came out on first - Soul Series? - was this legit? or was it a Kent pressing?, Torch records?

Can't seem to find out. Manship has a single sided SS promo for sale - is that the one to look for?

Hmmm... done some more digging -  so the Torch one is '98, Soul Series is???? and Kent is '09..? Any ideas on which is the 'proper' first official press?

Hi Stu

The Torch release is 1st press 

Keith Minshull  was involved in it he did tell me years ago he owned the rights to the record

The one Chris King did is sort of legit, he paid the money to Goldwax owner but he didn't have the rights to the record as they were sold to fame.

Kent is the first fully legit release with the rightful owner getting the money due. Torch series a boot vas far as I am aware but happy to be corrected.

Let's clear this one up, first the torch records was indeed Minshull and Tot Johnson, Tot paid the rights to release this as a single, it's one of two versions , the king 45 is a different take (minus the organ riff ) the torch one has it tho, Brian Rae played this out via a jap cd early on.

Tot wanted his own label, it was an ambition for him to put something out, he did it right and paid, he still has around 50 copies, he gives them to friends etc.

if I remember both versions came out at the same time, I didn't know it came out on Kent ? But i don't really look at these "new "45s so that's the reason! Hope this helps !
