‘Mysterious’ Instrumental

All About the SOUL Tony Turner

In the early 80s I remember an instrumental that I think was called ‘Don’t Make Promises’. It was either by an unknown artist or possibly by A Stitch In Time.

Does anybody remember/have any details about it?

It's uncredited (just "Instrumental" on the label), but is the B-side of a pop record by a group called The Stitch In Tyme. Canadian release on the Yorkville label. Scan attached - remember having it on a tape covered up as Billy Jackson Orchestra "If It Takes Forever"

It's also the backing track to a vocal version (also on Yorksville) by Susan King. Cover of a Tim Hardin original.

Scottish Singer Tam White cut it too - and a version of Girl Watcher of course. Future Thoughts is his best though - proper Mod / Psych banger!

Seems pretty popular all round this one .

Bobby Darin had a shot at it in 66 and Scott McKenzie recorded his version in 67.

There's also a cut of the track by 3 Dog Night 

 

 

Lock the thread hehe...:D

Thanks for that info mate, you had my immediate interest there as soon as I saw the marvellous worlds of Mod and Psyche grouped together !

 This thread ..:) 

I think we should have a Soul Source poll to decide which one of these versions of 'Don't Make Promises' is the most 'Northern' coupled with a nice friendly non partisan debate in the comments.....hmm, but then again on second thoughts it's a debate that could rage out of control and run forever.. with both disagreement and heartfelt belief, passionate alliances forged and then broken !

Until the next original test pressing of a Frank Wilson 'Do I Love You ' 45 turns up that is..:lol:
