Ronnie Walker - now There Is You

Recommended Posts

Hmmm no info yet ,it must be rarer than I thought.

The only reason I'm asking is that I've just seen it on Manship's Rarest of the Rare section which gobsmacked me as I never thought that it was all that.

Eee, every day another suprise :thumbsup:

Don't usually draw a blank from here.

However 1 last try.

Ronnie Walker--Now There Is You--Gala P-5202.

Any info on rarity,value etc. because as I said can't believe it's listed in Manships Rarest of the Rare.

Cheers

Tony

This is one of my fave CD's...

Ronnie Walker Someday

Philly Archives, 1966-1973

Titles include "Really Really Love You", "Ronnie's Theme", "Someday", "Love is An Illusion", "Everything Is Everything", "Precious", "Now I Cry", "Thanks To You", "I'm Saying Goodbye", and "Now There Is You".

Classy stuff.

The copy in the "You Tube" clip is the previously unissued cut that Ronnie put out a couple of years ago. From what I gather - After Ronnie parted company with producer Phil Gaber to work with Vince Montana, Phil put out the Gala side without Ronnie's knowledge, but only pressed up a couple of hundred copies - hence it's scarcity

Thanks Des. That explains a few things.

The flip side 'In search of love' is imo is one of the finest single artist falsetto deep soul records of all time, and has been highly regarded by japanese collectors for years. Over here most are unable to appreciate that, but then it has allways been that way. As for the other side, well it would be a great theme tune for a racing chanel on sky! The  'over the top' production is only saved by Mr walkers great voice. It's been knocking around for years. I did play 'now there is you' out at some local gig back in the eighties and realized it was a mistake.

I never realised only a couple of hundred copies were pressed on Gala - wonder how many copies still in existence.
