O.T. Sykes Stone crush on you

Recommended Posts

Could you tell me the differences between the two 7" on Fun City that have this tune? One has Come be my lady on the flip, the other one My first love. What comes first, if is there any significant diffrences for the value, maybe different mixes stuff like that. Thanks

Hi, the vinyl record with "Come Be My Lady" and "Stone Crush On You" was released as a 7" and 12" respectively . "Stone Crush On You" is shorter on 7" than the 12". There is a difference of time between both versions about 1 minute.

I don't know about the address. Concerning the time scale, maybe there is a difference because his name on 12" is mentioned as O.T.Sykes and on 7" is mentioned as O.T.Sykes (The Singing Dentist).

If the release number data is in true numerical order then the release with 'My first love' came first, as this is 330b. The release with 'Come be my lady' is 451a. So  'Stone crush on you' was in fact the b side on that release. However there was never 120 different releases in between that period, so maybe the numbers mean very little. My copy came from soul bowl as a new release for £3.50, this was purchased on the back of hearing Robbie Vincent play 'Come be my lady' on his sunday night show on radio 1. For me one of the best huanting soul ballads of the period.
