Help....  Somebody reminded me of Len Jewell - Betting On Love....  and what a great track it is...  but I'm convinced something else uses the same backing track...driving me mad or I am already mad....

Along with "Don't Be Sore At Me", "Too Much" has IMHO some of the best lyrics of any northern soul track. I just love them.   Paul   Just though I'd mention it!!!!

I see the blue ones;    The label does match the "big typo" green original ones. But there's at least 2 pressing plants presses; one with large typos and another with smaller ones like so; 

Well, it is odd indeed. I can't find traces of it on the net. I've had that 'TOO much' copy for few years, it was my first copy. Once I got an original I got rid of it. It was green and not blue...

Yes but you'll want to original press misspelt credit 'TO much' where the boot (even lo-fier) is correctly credited as 'TOO Much' !

There some blue coloured original labels guess rarer than the green ?

Long before my time (The Torch) but wasn't Too Much played first - seem to remember a review somewhere commenting about the stunning new vocal to Jimmy Conwell.

But the run out grooves seem too large on this blue variation (typical of boots). And so they don't seem right to me;

I don't have one in hand to check, but are the blue ones 'Nashville' stamped ? All those blue ones sold on the buy surfaced from the UK !?...

Do the originals sound as horrible as the boot did?  

No, the boot is just bad. The original volume is low. They mastering work is not the best they have done. Just as is the vinyl quality they used for those Gemini pressings. So you have to push the volume up to get some juice and you get the sound of the stylus friction on the rough vinyl with it... kinda "lo-fi" sound to it. The boot is that plus bad !

Mine is a green one with the Nashville stamp and the sound quality isn't great. I thought it was just my copy, but others have also mentioned it.

Also, I've never seen any copies with the spelling "TOO". I'd be interested to see a scan. 

I've had a look on the John Manship site and he has a blue copy for sale marked "repro" (reproduction) and a green original.

Is it the same guy who is credited on Cigarette Ashes?  That's L.A. through and through, but Gemini was a Cleveland label wasn't it?

Ignore me.  My mate just reminded me that Jimmy Conwell was lead singer with the Exits and the Tripps.  Obvious Gemini connections.  Well, I say reminded me but that's an exaggeration.  I actually never knew.
