Sy Hightower mega rare, 1975 monarch test press 12” ep

Posted (edited)

You read it right, one of only 50 pressed in 1975, most of which were scrapped. Needs no introduction or history lesson, and has not been offered on a public sale to the best of my knowledge...

It was not acquired from the Pittmans (of Carmelita fame), but a Monarch employee many years ago. The Pittmans have lost their copy and there are no more available.

The disc is close to M-, still in the original white sleeve it was first stored inside from 1975.

 

Please feel free to Pm sensible offers, I’m hoping there’s no need to auction it if someone comes in strong and fair here on the site.

Ive sat on it for long enough, and being a family man of late, a nice chunk of income would be beneficial for life round the home.

Otherwise, I’ll enjoy it for a few years more, no hurry or worry..

All the best,

Mike

I’ve never had a proper list of the tracks, sorry, they are not written anywhere on the disc, this older thread says all I know.

Isn't that rather the single sided forthcoming Carmen LP project done only halfway that features an instrumental version of 'I know you're leaving me' and the original of where 'I wonder why' was sourced ?

As your sale title present an EP thing (even if dating 1975) that might confuse us with the 1982 EP...

If it's the same as Rod Dearloves one sided acetate (Presumed to be one side of an LP)

 1) I ain't Playing

2) I ain't Playing

3) I've been Thinkin'

4) I know your' leaving

5) I wonder why

This was given me back in the day from a friend of mine who was quite pally with Rod.( A CD copy of it)

Hope it helps.....Rick

Thank you Rick!

This list looks accurate.

it is definitely not any of the 1982, and “Go back baby” is on it.

Cheers' glad i could help in some way, "Go back baby" is 1st and second track on my CD Copy, so wrongly titled?,

When given the CD it just said Sy Hightower from Promo Acetate on it so had to put on it what i already Knew the time and guess the on others.

The Guys on here are very Knowlagable on all things Soul, and then some.....and always ready to help in any way which is cool.

Cheers Rick.

I am reliably informed this is the correct track listing from Rods old copy

Go back baby

Go back baby with added strings

I've been thinking

Go on to your new love

I wonder why

Wild love
