Didn't Go on by Jimmy Mack and Look at me by Dave Hall have the same backing?

One more that deserves a mention that I will own in the future by hook or by crook is Morris Chestnut - Too darn soulful / You dont love me anymore - Amy.

MAGNETICS - COUNT THE DAYS / WHEN IM WITH MY BABY - SABLE

Jackie Beavers on Revilot does it for me (dont own it), keep changing my mind on favorite side, gone back to I Need My Baby now, Richard S at his peak !!

Also Dynamics Lights Out/ou make Me Feel Good, not both Northern but probably in my top ten of slabs of soul for the deep side!

Cheers

Jock

PS Is it my imagination or did Detroit produce a far higher percentage of double siders than anywhere else?

Difficult to choose my favourite double sider of the moment but here's a couple but by no means a definitive list

Masterpiece - Love Affair/We're gonna make it - YPSI

Decisions - Stop playing around/do you love me - Essex

Powerhouse - You turn me on/Come into my world - Daystar

21st Century - Shadow of a memory/Coming right back - Dot

Sy Hightower - I know you're leaving me/Wild love - Karmen

Trouty

and as a bonus the record of the night (single sided sadly)

Black Ivory - Just leave me some - Today

nice and cheap but gorgeous :lol::D:D

HI John, just realised not only do I have that 45 I put CC on the most recent midtempo swap cd here so its not even been back on the shelves that long!! Staying in is killing my memory!!

Totally agree on the other side, would sound just right on one of your camping weeekends, (thats the weekends you spend in a tent rather than any slight on your masculinity!).

Masterpiece - Love Affair/We're gonna make it - YPSI

:D   :D   :D

Some nice choices there Mr Trout, as would expect. Whats the story on the Masterpiece 45, is that getting plays?

Was one of a batch that soul ledgend Andy Whitmore and his lovely wife Suzanne put me on to at end of eighties, all were great records but particlularly liked this, tried it out a few times in the dark ages but not much interest.

Cheers

You were obviously very drunk when we played it at the Orwell then Jock :lol:

It doesn't get as much play as it should IMVFHO but we certainly play it out quite a bit and i know Dean Johnson is fond of dusting it off when the oportunity arrises as do a few others. Value wise it will have gone up considerably since you bought it :D

I am excused that night as if you remember we arrived just as you finished due to Arthur getting lost in Wigan!!

I got it for a tenner, along with the Bernard Williams on Spectrum for same price!!

Probably off topic now but did you get dates for Orwell in 2005, might just make another trip down

Loads of quality already mentioned, but my fave double header for 2 storming powerhouse detroit cuts has to be Rose Batiste Hit & Run/I Miss My Baby on Revilot - pure class and adrenaline  :D !

Others that spring to mind:

Jimmy Beaumont - Never Loved Her Anyway/You've Got Too Much on BANG

Bobby Sheen - Something New To Do/I May Not Be What You want on WB

The Innersection - Let Me Luv Ya/I'm In Debt To You on Group 5

Tony Hestor - Watch Yourself/Just Can't Leave You on Karate

I love buying records with 2 good sides - feels like you're getting an extra record for free - and you are!!!  :D

Tons of great double headers I don't have (but would love!) either - flip over the Cashmeres (Hem), Dena Barnes (Inferno). Ty Karim - You Really Made It Good To Me (Romark) - there's tons of them. Long live the double header!!!

Rich

link

Definately the Tony Hestor...........Just Can't Leave You - WHAT A KILLER TRACK :D and September Jones on Kapp - I'm Coming Home and the B side which I can never remember but it's great :lol: Jo

always flip em mate,some hidden gems on the flips,problem is remembering what they are called cos everybody just says the ''other side of so and so '' if you like quality mid tempo then you're in for a nice surprise.

same with the Artistics ''this heart of mine''the B side is good but overshadowed by the A side.....IMO

Magnetics I assume,

The b side of I Have A Girl on RASEL was Love and Devotion, I used to like it, a bit of a plodder rather than one to grab you buy the testicles!

Did play it out a couple of times but general theory was it wasnt up to much, must have been me again!!

Cheers

Jock

PS Lenny are you coming over to Edinburgh tomorrow? Also is it true you are having a xmas bash next week at Caley Soul, am dead keen to get over to one.

There are so many really great double siders.

Still amazes me how many people still don't bother playing the b sides!!

Anyway, here's a few of my fave's & no doubt i'll be back with a few more....

Appointments - I saw you there/Keep away - Delite

Billy Kennedy - Sweet Things/Groovy Generation - Thelma

Sandy Golding - You are Everything/When you're all alone - Masterpiece

Majority of the stuff on Wheelsville,Thelma,D-Town etc have 2 good sides.

But i gotta say one of my absolute faves is the awesome

CHARLES BRANDY-CANT GET ENOUGH/WITHOUT YOUR LOVE-BLUE CAT

Live in hope evey time i go out that i might hear it again.........

So anybody out there fancy making this girl's Christmas?

Loads, Joan

I Want it Back (Your Love) / Baby, Baby Don't You Know (That I Love You) on Loma.

Best double sider with brackets in each title!

Here's a few more after digging in the box:

Vibrations - Cause Your Mine/I Took An Overdose - Epic (OK, CYM is flogged to death, but the flip is a great funky stormer, if you like that kinda thang! and I do!)

Stanley Mitchell - Quit Twistin' My Arm/Get It Baby - Dynamo (Not a lot needs to be said about B side, but Quit Twistin' on the A is a great track, sounds familiar - was it played out much?)

Voicemasters - If A Woman../You've Hurt Me Baby - Bamboo (Cheap as chips, both fantastic, I prefer YHMB, whereas Trouty likes the flip, get it if you ain't got it!!)

And one I want heap bad at the mo' is Chubby & Turnpikes I Didn't Try/I Know Inside Story - Capitol (Sheer class - nuff said)

Don't think I can nail the favourite double-header in my collection but one that's always been big in me backroom is the Volumes sublime 'That same old feeling' backed with that naughty romper 'The trouble I've seen'.
