Nate Evans On Dpr

Recommended Posts

Was just browsing through John Manships auction items and noticed that he's got one of these up on his site.

I've got the same 45 but it credits Nate Evans & Mean Green rather than Nate Evans & Buss......whats the difference in value/rarity of these?

Cheers

Adam.

He did, but they reckoned he did the worst Tommy Cooper of anyone they'd ever seen :thumbsup:wink.gif ...

Seriously, you're right, he was with Sam and Fred after Reggie Torian, who came after Ralph Johnson (who's back with 'em now) who came after Leroy Hutson - who, of course, came after Curtis...

TONE :thumbsup:

I met him in Manchester, as you do!, back in 1991ish.

Nate, along with David Sea, were singing backing for the Ruffin, Kendricks and Edwards farewell tour. I went to the Manchester Appollo gig.

We did'nt know who he was during the show but he sure was good.

Me and my mate Tats like hanging around stage doors and meeting celebraties. David Sea comes out first and is'nt all that friendly but asks for directions into Manchester and then walks off. Next comes out the other backing singer. We tell him that he was great and ask him his name. He replies Nate Evans. Tats goes "this time with feeling", he is amazed that we know the song and tells us all about the Impressions. Sadly can't remember much more other than I have a ticket signed "this time with feeling, Nate Evans".

Really top guy. The thing is, a lot of people on the Northern scene saw that tour, it even went to Lincoln, so you may have scene Nate Evans without realising it.

Did'nt meet David Ruffin though! He was dead not long after his return from the UK. What a waste.

Regards Alan

Always thought the "Buss" was just a printing error and it should really be "Boss" ?

Hence it's obscurity. Always liked this version but think John Edwards take just edges it for me.

The two issues (the vinyl) are exactly the same. The only difference in the labels are BUSS v MEAN GREEN and different writting credits for TLOYF. Probably BUSS issue is mis-credited and hence it's withdrawal and re-issue? I dig the records out and scan them later. What are the writting credits for TLOYF on the other versions?

Of course they the vinyl is the same, because the company would retain the master plates and repress from them. Masterplates are the most expensive part of the pressing process.

More likely Nate Evans changed the name of his band at some point, as many artists did. and when the repress was requested ("Soul Bowl" had them in 1975-ish) DPR ran it with his current band credited.

To mis-credit MEAN GREEN with BUSS is some spelling mistake.

I meant those who were credited as writting the song

I knew it from Wigan. Was 'pressed' around Xmas 76, turned out to be originals. All credited to Mean Green by the way.

The very first copy ever played on the Northern Soul scene was spun by Soul Sam at Cleethorpes Pier..his copy with credited to BUSS a few more copies filtered through as I remember my copy was BUSS. Then it went massive, then it appeared from Soul Bowl credited to MEAN GREEN.

The BUSS copy I have at the moment has a much more solid print and colouring than the MEAN GREEN press but they have certainly used the same masterplate, so Mean Green is a company repro

Does anyone know the year BUSS was made?

John Edwards was 1972 credited as wrote by Floyd Smith only

James Phelps was 1971 credited as wrote by Floyd Smith, D. Chapman & Richard Tufo

Nate Evans with BUSS credited as wrote by Graham, Richard Tufo & Walker

Nate Evans with MEAN GREEN credited as wrote by Crenshaw, Floyd Smith & Richard Tufo

Music publishers on the 45s are different also, but I won't bvore yuo with that.

Very confusing!

Satin ?? not got acopy as present.

But the BUSS press these days is rarely seen..

Can we clear this confusion up, in your "Manship guide to Bootlegs etc "(3rd edition) John you state that Nate Evans and Boss is the original release and that on some releases it was spelt "Buss" so Nate Evans and Boss is the first and rarer release.....

Any help.........

Bloody tipical.

You wait for hours for a Buss & then four arrive at once :shhh:

Know TTWF was 1st played at Cleggy but it always reminds me of the late 70s/early 80s South Yorks venues.

Never seen a demo, any out there?
