Moments Track

Guest profile photo

Can anyone shed any light on a moments track please, about 1975 and the chorus is "spending my nights like this" - not a lot to go on I'm afraid, but it is very "northernish sound" and an excellent track.

I was wondering whether it was a LP track.

Cheers....

mine is a one off studio acetate, where they sing "Ive got the Nedd", but the record company made them change it to "need" for some reason.

The Spooky & Sue version was booted on a Pink Belgian label 'Negram' issue, so that will explain poor quality sound on that, whereas the original was a Black issue if memory serves, on Dutch Philips with a picture sleeve.

As always, build in the 'Jamie error factor', but I think I'm not far away this time......

Spooky was a bit of a Disco geezer back in Holland in them days, and I think the collaboration was a one off.

If anyone has an original Black issue I'll have it.

Also a US issue of the Chuck Jackson version please. Not fussed about the UK one.

Ta.

Thought you'd have heard that one, Miff.

The Spooky & Sue version was THE Cleethorpes version, but my 'Old Man' said the Chuck Jackson one was played at the Winter Gardens.

As a kid I preferred the Chuck Jackson version, but now I can't choose between 'em. Moments is still good, but not as, if you know what I mean.

Get your arse over to Leeds on Dec 3rd and I'll play it for you. (Providing I get a copy before then!! :unsure: )

You are having a Giraffe aren't you??? How can you even contemplate comparrison between Chuck Jackson and Spooky and Sue's lightweight offering. Admittedly not Chucks best effort but it's lightyears better than S&S

Trotsky

Actually didn't CJ's version become a minor chart hit in the UK in the 70's ????

Cheers Pete,

Knew it was something like that, bare me in mind if you come across another copy. That Negram one is pap, near on impossible to play the quality is that bad.

Pipe down Trootmeister, you not being from the right part of the country anymore has made you go crazy.

Although, I did mention CJ's version was my boyhood choice. He adds more to it vocally, and sort of ad-libs between lines (If that's the right phrase??) whereas the S&S version just 'sticks to the words' and seems a little flat compared to CJ.

And stop being so uptight, so uptight, I've got the need to slap you about. :unsure:

I always preferred the Moments version, and the L.P. has another great track "Just having your love" well worth digging out.
