Just one major label offering up for grabs today. Sound file and additional images available if you want. PM any questions or to reserve.

Youth Opportunity Program – Of hopes, dreams and tombstones – Columbia 43407 WD M- £950

Titled more like a spaghetti western, but reality is soon restored with the unmistakable harmonica intro punctured by the stern vocals of Jimmy Fraser, all played out on the back of a rampant beat with occasional catch your breath pauses that will allow just enough time to regather your dance floor composure. A classic example of a Northern stomper that's in great shape and never out of sorts.

For a major label, the pressing variations make this a very interesting recording. There exists a rarer vinyl demo (one went for nearly 1400 on JM's auction last month), and Jimmy Fraser credited styrene demos and red stock copies, but no red stockers of YOP that I am aware of? There's also the historically valued public message sleeve that accompanied the YOP release to coax those unruly nippers to stick with their education, but unfortunately no longer coupled with this particular 45.

PayPal as friends or add 4% please, or I can send bank details.

Postage (Latest 2021 Prices for up to 250g):

£8.65 - Special Delivery (Fully insured up to £1000)

Overseas on Request

Cheers, Lee
