Esquires - My Sweet Baby - Hotline 103

UK jobbies on Ebay, but would prefer a US copy. Anybody got one to shift in M- condition?

Please PM me if so.

Cheers,

Macca.

Very hard to find on Hot Line, I was lucky to get my copy from someone on here recently.

On UK Action its about £50 but I'd say £150 for a Hot Line copy.

Great looking label as well !!!

:rolleyes:

I've got this on Action (Promo)

Which just prompts me to mention that strangely enough, this was the 'B' side in the USA whereas on the UK release - it was the 'A' side.

UK demos are same both sides but the US demo has both sides of the record.

...That's just in case anyone's interested... :thumbsup::yes:

Don't buy a U.S. demo, it's the same both sides and unfortunately it's the wrong side.

Sorry... have I got it slightly wrong?

US demos are double sided of the A side (Henry Ralph) and not having the B side?

Not having a US copy I was only going from memory :D:lol:

I thought I'd seen a demo with both sides on it - ah well...

I stand corrected then :thumbsup:

Cheers Joe :thumbsup:

Another track from the LP which I always rated - "How could it be"

Released on a 45 on Bunky 7756 - another great cheapie from them :lol:

Must get a copy of the LP sometime - I always though all the good tracks were on 45s - obviously I was wrong on that also :lol::yes:

What's "When I'm ready" like then?...

Hi John,

As you know, the LP was always knocking around and 'two a penny'.

I've had 2 or 3 over the years. All good tracks.

Agree on "How Could it Be" as well mate.

Top little choon.

...How great a record is "You Say", by the way? You'd hear it all the time and everywhere if it was worth £850.00, rather than the eightpence ha'penny or thereabouts that it's always gone for. Top B-side too (in spite of an unpromising title), "State Fair"...

Always been near the top of my "acts I wish I'd seen" list, The Esquires. And thanks, Mark B, for the nice 'big-up' - it's always nice to know that my efforts are enjoyed by the kind of people who I hope will like 'em...
