You get the instrumental on Bobby James just saying Bobby James is in the play box, Jimmy on the shelves Brand new faces in the bin 😂

Jimmy Burns and Bobby James are, in many respects, the same song - same backing track and almost identical vocal treatment. 

The Brand New Faces isn't really a 'version'. It just utilises the melody.

The Mystics, on the other hand, is a completely different arrangement but with the original lyrics. In fact, you need reminding that it is a version of the Jimmy Burns song.

Listening to all four back-to-back, I have to say The Mystics sounds fresh and exciting and thus it gets my vote.

Bobby James, just, over Jimmy Burns. Just like the slight rasp in the voice even though the Burns track is a slightly cleaner production.

The other 2 are some way behind.

Must admit thats the 1st time I've heard The Mystics and as Amsterdam Russ says it does sound fresh and exciting. However I can remember Jimmy Burns as a fresh exciting tune for Richard Searling late 70s early 80s so Mr Burns will get my vote.

Seem to remember @ that time the only DJs playing Brand New Faces were those who didn't have Jimmy Burns. I quite liked its quirkiness then. Will give it a listen as not heard it since but Jimmy Burns for me

Cheers Paul

Jimmy Burns - Soul Sam 
77 St Ives - smashed, biting my bottom lip, mouth dry but no time for a drink as the next sound is on - keep on dancing - great times great memories 👍🏻

It's Jimmy Burns for me - only just outshining Bobby James.. But in saying that, it's ONLY because it was Jimmy's cut I first heard and therefore associate the track more with his version

As Russ quite rightly states, The Mystics take could quite easily be mistaken for an entirely different track altogether.. But I too really like the arrangement, which appeals to me due to sounding 'fresh'

Brand New Who ???? 😄

Jimmy for sure. Bobby James is a great vocal but his grunting and straining puts him second. Would still get me up clicking my heels though. BNF is quirky which I do like. Mystics does absolutely nothing for me, never has, complete pants x

Jimmy Burns first, it has the edge and rawness that Bobby James doesn't, to my ears. I have always liked the Brand New Faces but either theirs or Jimmy's version would keep me on the dance floor. The other one as Joan eloquently puts it is complete pants.

Jimmy Burns, the first version I heard. It's strange but most people do tend to go for the first version of anything they hear.

Bought the Mystics but it doesn't really go anywhere so I traded it.

Jimmy burns all day long, it’s got that hands down northern soul impact! All the rest are neither here nor there,and the jimmy burns for collectibility too!

After listening to all four versions I pick the Mystics. Jimmy Burns and Bobby James are both good but interchangeable if I heard them out. The Mystics give it a different feel. The Brand New Faces would be okay if I hadn't heard the others. All a matter of personal taste.
