Is it the same version that Rob Marriott had? If so I knew it as Van McCoy

That’s it, 10” single sided. I bought it offRob M early 90s and sold on to Kitch about 10 years ago.  Was a thread on here(I think) discussing April & Blackwood acetates;  “Standing in the need of love”, etc and it was mentioned on there that the Funny Face Girl track was an unissued Chancellors CapCity recording but can’t remember the full details.

Also had another A&W 10” “My heart still belongs to you” played as Chris Bartley. Think I sold it to Al Coney, be good to hear that again too.

Allan still has the acetate is Chris Bartley. 
The Funny Face girl probably came from the same haul as the Charmaines that Kev Roberts found, all part of a haul of Date and connected recordings.

Not forgetting the other van McCoy acetate Kev sold Richard s. I go out of my mind, remember when Kev  came back from the states with them he brought them into Rob smith's shop , Rob wasn't interested so offered them me. Think he wanted  couple hundred quid each unfortunately I'd just blown a Kings ransom on little John  Betty Turner etc. Sure there was a couple of others as well

The Funny face girl  original acetate has been in my collection for a fair few years now,  The Chris Bartley acetate Allan coney traded it to me many moons ago, i recently sold it to a mate in Europe.
