Holidays - I love you Forever

there is a better version than the golden world 45, with Edwin on vocals that are well to the fore, came out on a Soul Supply cd I think, I have it on MP3, anyhow I wonder did it ever get a vinyl release? 

Best

As far as I know It was only ever recorded using Edwin on Lead vocals...which were dubbed onto the track later...

I’ve listened to it from various sources and they all sound like the same singer to me...but differ in sound quality

This may shed some light...

It’s also on the American Motown CD..The very best of Edwin Starr...👍

That’s the one, and the same cd, I transferred the mp3s long ago so don’t have the sleeve notes, but I’m sure the notes said different version by Edwin Starr...

I don’t think it is Edwin Starr on the Goldmine CD , maybe Eddie Anderson ?

Ive got an acetate of this and had it at least 25 yrs I have it down as JJ Barnes also the a Capello of it. I know that Tony Hester and Steve Mancha also sang it (unreleased) The Golden World group were made up of members who were available on the day of which Tony Hester was one of them. The song was released by Edwin on Ed Wingates insistence maybe a little extra thankyou for Edwin bringing some food to the table in the form of Back Street, Agent oo soul, S O S and Headline News
