Milton Wright on Satiron

Recommended Posts

I have seen copies of Milton Wrights - "I belong to you" B/W "Like a rolling stone" on Satiron,  going for up to £700, I have also seen copies that look identical going for £5.00

I have a copy that I have had for years, 1980 ish, just wondered if anyone can shed any light on how to find out if my copy is original.

Thanks in advance

Andy

In the early 90's I gave my brother a boxful of 45's as I began getting ideas of being a top DJ, amongst that lot was a nice copy of the MR 45, I got the box back some years later and quickly sold them off as I still had the dream of becoming a top "Upfront" DJ, I sold that for a few quid!  Thing is, it is seriously one of my favourite NS tunes and I hear that the flipside is tasty, ah well, you live and learn I guess....not me.

I spent the day going through a load of NS records that I haven't played for ages and sorted a few out to sell.

I love the Milton Wright track and wondered why I haven't played it out.

Think I paid about £1.50 for it, last time I checked it was £30, so to see the high price it is now fetching is a turn up for the books.

What has made the record so collectable, has a top DJ been pushing it, is the B side getting the spins, or have people just realised that its a great record that need more plays.

The Satiron copies in the late 70's were never made for the USA public! They were a custom press made to be exported to the UK for the Northern Soul scene.   The vocal versions of "I belong to you" and "Like a Rolling Stone" were recorded many years before they ever had a release on vinyl!

think they were done in 1976 in conjunction between ollie mclaughlin and john anderson at soul bowl..as you know the instrumental ..the gallop had been played but not the vocal up to that point
