Recommended Posts

WOULD HAVE TO BE FOR ME MIKKI FARROW COULD IT BE/ SET MY HEART AT EASE ON KARATE. LOOKS LIKE SOMEBODY HAS BEEN ICE SKATING ON MY COPY BUT PLAYS FAR BETTER THAN IT LOOKS.

Best I have off the cuff in my collection is probably Willie Kendrick 'Change Your Ways/What's That On Your Finger' RCA.

I'll have a flick through tonight and probably change my mind.

Not far away though, Classic double-header.

Seconded Jamie, wonderful stuff.

Darrell Banks - Our love / Open the door must be right up there too.

Paul

SITC

Oooh yeah! One of the most famous, gotta be.

While we're on about classics, what about Artistics 'I'm Gonna Miss You/Hope We Have' Brunswick. I wonder how much that would be worth if it was rare as hens teeth??

'Hope We have' always gets the shoe-leather burning for me.

I'm gonna cheat here a bit, and mention one I wished I owned:

Ruby 'Deceived/Feminine Ingenuity' Token

Sorry Brett, Stole your thunder.

I just luuurrvvve this. You can stick your 'Take 6'. Token is the only one.

I'll raise all of ya! Jack Montgomery on Scepter...unbeatable.

Hi Mark,

Maybe you were still typing when I posted last :thumbup:

One side is stronger than the other on JM. With Ruby, it's double-barrelled, they are both pure quality :D

We'll have to agree to disagree, but I think you'll find I'm right. beer.gif

Jamie :thumbsup:

You're dead right there Jamie! Sorry mate, never been able to see what anyone sees in Deceived - messy production, 'orrible vocals and a strange reggae style beat! What people see in that record is a total mystery to me........still, whatever dangles your chain!

Best. Mark.

I'll agree that JM is a brilliant double-sider, maybe if I didn't own the JM I might feel different. If I owned Ruby I spose I'd hanker after the one I didn't own!!

Actually, my copy has 'My Dearly Beloved' label on both sides - anyone else have it like that??

Hi Lou,

I think Bobby Reed is 'If I Don't Love You', which was actually the A side. Yet another one I forgot I had.

I'd like to add Willie Tee - First taste of hurt / I'm having so much fun :thumbsup:

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 :thumbsup: !

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!!! :thumbup:

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!!!

OOPS! There I go again not reading things properly. :thumbsup:

The best in my meagre collection would have to be, Darrell Banks - Open The Doors/Our Love.

Although saying that some of the Jackie Wilson singles are great too, Sweetest Feeling/Nothing But Blue Skies for example.
