 More madness how come this attains a price tag off £355 so far is beyond me . The world has definitely lost the plot . Second rate at best .never a massive fan of it . more garage than soul with hints of the rolling stones thrown in .

I agree

They became this group and sort of did have some pedigree me thinks :)

It really is rare on the original.  Think I paid £120 for it about 15 years ago . So the price in today's market isn't that inflated . Good luck with the search

Its tough imho never saw many back in the day and its a record that rarely turns up. Not my cup of tea but deffo a time piece etc,used to echo round the casino and in that place sounded bloody marvellous much like many of the other tracks of that nature that had that feel but lacked real soul content.

PS There did go onto become the Ambassadors that cut that Pee Vee track another casino biggie as we know but not be confused with the Herley Johnsons Ambassadors that cut all those fab cuts on Arctic Atlantic etc.

The Fleet 45 is a great record and in my experience the tougher of all their records.

The flip of the Seven Dwarfs "One By One" is a cover of a "Blues Magoos" tune that came out in 1967, making this release after "Too Much Of A Good Thing"?

Indeed. The "Stop Girl" 45 is from January 1968.

Stop girl was a 5 or 6 week wonder....

They were ALL 5 or 6 week wonders back in the day because there were so many like this getting found.

Hardly a classic but bound to be rare ish...as they probably only sold a few hundred at most.

Most of the ones we got were from the US warehouse raiders like soul bowl.

Always thought it was a copy cat of The rolling Stones version of satisfaction....

Definitely a lot more Northern than Soul.

Indeed it was a production line back in the 70s but not all of it has stood the test of time.

See,.... If this had been recorded by someone else say.....Paul Sindab......it would have been accepted different.

 

Punter 1......Have you heard that new sound that Dj x has found by Paul Sindab on Ideal?

Punter 2......No. What's it like?

Punter 1......Superb. It's gonna go massive. It's proper rare too.

It got played, it got danced to, it's got history, on a small label like this and it bombed on first release, so it's going to be rare.

However, it's personal choice whether it's quality or not.

Just because it's all those things above should not make it more likeable, but will probably make it more collectable to rare Northern Soul record collectors. 

£500 would buy a lot of quality less rare originals, but to some folks that's irrelevant.

So, why no credit for Snow White on lead vocals? Maybe Warwick Davis is bidding for the thing as he likes small records?  Amazed this record is even worth a serious mention. Definitely a Guilty Pleasure. Never heard it played out. Do not anticipate ever hearing it in public. Some really bad records were played at Wigan but that’s no justification for reviving them. Actually, pleased that someone likes the record sufficiently to want to buy it.

I used to  play it out at various nighters . Middleton,  Sheridans. Winsford.  Morecambe,  Bretby,  Leicester,  Rugby , countless soul nights and always to a great reaction.

People will revive them purely cause it is a tough record to find and cost a few bob.

And here`s where it gets a tad confusing. If the Seven Dwarfs - Stop Girl is a 1968 record, what`s with this quote?

 I’m the sax man from the Ambassadors. That’s the Ambassadors from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, about 60 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The group started as the Seven Dwarves. In 1964, they added two horns–a trumpet and a sax, very unusual for the time–and became the Ambassadors.

I know both are definitely blue-eyed soul groups  but could this be a different group? 

 

Personally I think both Stop Girl & Too Much are outright rubbish 45s but that`s only my opinion.

All I know is, Rick Reardon appeared in both groups. See bottom credits on Ambassadors 'B' side for vocals...

ambassadors-pee-vee-whole-lotta-soul-pee-vee.thumb.jpg.c46a5f4455a96a37fe67ca5b459f598f.jpg 

 

7 Dwarfs -  Sharon Herr(also on Keyboards),Rick Reardon,Ronnie Keene,John Helm and Jerry Ransing and with band members Denny Groff on guitar and Charlie Evans in Percussion.
 

Ambassadors  -  Bill Parmer (bass), Bobby Bitts. (drummer), Bob Weaver and Mike Sultzbach (sax), Tony Purcell (trumpet), Don Hodgen & Rick Reardon (vocals), Burton (piano), Eric Spitzer (guitar).
