What about the jaw-droppingly poor organ instrumental versions that Simon Soussan turned up and played at Wigan? (I think that's right - too young myself).  I heard a tape once and it was very bad indeed. What was the reaction at the time? And did any of those ever come out?😄

Each to their own but that is beyond words. How in the name of God did they come out the studio and think "You know what, that vocal sounds great. We'll go with that take"

A Soussan "production" no less. Obviously pitched up and it would appear to be Patti Brookes according to an old SS thread who worked under the name of Adrienne Williams. That name features on the Del-Satins track mentioned earlier.

"Afternoon of the Rhino" was from a 1969 album so not sure how this would be considered to be tailor made. First played around 1973/4 from memory.

Wasn't aware of this previous release. Explains a thing or two. Thanks for the info.

It’s only the flip on the UK issue done fir he NS scene John. Life is a Song got a few plays before The Flasher came out - probably why the artist was already on the radar. The flip of Life is a version of Living For The City, which is pretty nice if I remember correctly.

Must look that up. Thanks for the info.

Question- Would this qualify as a "tailor made" or is it just a song

that sounds like it was made a lot earlier? If it is a "tailor made"  it would be in my Top 5.

Not mentioned yet but not a tailor-made (so not scary sounding like most are) but more like influenced with some budget to produce something this scene would dig with the right people in and around the music.

A bit in the same "idea" of the Carol Anderson on Fee or is it Grapevine ? 'sad girl' that I love BTW. Only predating by a decade is this one. As for the 'pole', worst is easy; all of them. Best, now that's a tricky one...

No. Not a tailor-made at all. Although the US release and the UK one on Grapevine came out the same year (I think) which to my mind, makes the UK one simply a UK release of a recent US release rather than a 'reissue'.

Most of the scene at that time were fortunate enough to see them perform this live. Totally captivated, perfect exciting dancer for that era. My top 20 N/S records of all time change daily, but this almost always features, because part of being a purist is refusing to deny what actually happened, which records were and weren't played, enjoyed, danced to etc :D

I never really noticed that about the fee/grapevine connection. Was the flaming emeralds a similar story?

Apparently, the licensing was in place thru the Flaming Emeralds release and John Anderson heard /discovered the Carol Anderson record on a subsequent visit. Hence he brought over copies the record on Fee and was able to follow on with a swift release on Grapevine. The two releases have always been available in roughly equal quantities in my experience and both used to be very plentiful and cheap.

David Rhodes was a bona-fide tune that Ian Levine had as an acetate at The Mecca - it is not a "tailor made".

He was with David Rhodes when he recorded it don’t know how much input Ian had on the tune though

It was co-authored by Rhodes with producer Danny Leake, who became a key collaborator of Levine's soon after. Quite possible that Levine was more of an observer at this point but learning fast re the whole recording process. Good record imho.

I read somewhere (ages ago) That Dave Godin used the name Chris to avoid legal problems. I never knew what that meant but Van McCoy was all over this

Mr Soussan I believe unless anyone else knows better....It certainly appeared on his list first along with Suzy Parker , Dena Barnes (these heartaches not the good one !) and a few other 'questionable' re-issues at the same time in early 76
