Leon haywood baby reconsider

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please advise on the matrix/runout markings on Leon Haywood, baby reconsider, styrene blue/white issue. I know about the boot of the promo but nothing on the issue. Cannot find this anywhere on net, I have what looks and feels like a styrene copy, plays correct titles but cannot see any markings on 'goin back' side, any thoughts/ advice please.

Thanks , mine has delta 64378 and the MR in circle but also M-318 NOT directly opposite mid delta number, correct 'b' side but with no visible markings?.

It's an original, was recorded in LA with Monarch just around the corner. Here's some trivia, the recording session started at 11.00pm and finished at 03.00am, was being played on the radio stations and going down well, then in steps Berry Gordy who told Fat Fish to pull the record or face a law suit, Gordy said it was plagiarism, sounding like "Just a little misunderstanding". Having just won a case against Curtis Mayfield for "Can't satisfy" they couldn't risk the business and did pull the record. Thats' why issues are harder to find than demos. Not a lot of people know that :D

That's an interesting piece of information Chris,  I have had a long standing disagreement with one Mr Holyman about it, he always says that the issue is rarer, whilst I maintain that a proper demo is rarer. Looking at sales on eBay I have noted that I have seen 7 issues sold but only 3 demos. Perhaps a straw poll of members might reveal the true position.

I've got a demo :thumbsup:

Checked Popsick and saw 7 demos & 8 issues, way, way back it was all demos, you'll find that the issue generally goes for more money, usually a good Litmus test. That story BTW came from the arranger, the legendary Arthur Wright, who coincidentally later worked for the LA Motown office.

So the issue went for £670.00, that's quite a lot, seen some demos for sale at £350 - 400. Not sure if Julian Bentley still has one for sale, he was looking for that kind of price (I think)

Hi Chris

I have an issue as you quite rightly say.

It's never been in the 'sales box' though:)
