Chubby Checker - You Just Don't Know original releases?


Recommended Posts

For purely personal interest, could anyone help with the factual releases of this record. I have done some digging and have come up with various 'bits of info' & labels.

The 1st label I think I understand - an original 1965 US Parkway Promo, some got pressed before the rest of the order was cancelled (hence the extreme rarity & price).

The 2nd - which I've found as being listed as ...... US 'Parkway' label doesn't fit the story since supposedly there were no US standard issue releases - so is this a reissue and from what date or a bootleg?? I read somewhere that due to litigation, they pressed & released the record 'away' from Chubby's main fans in Philly??? (I know about the UK Outta Sight 2012 reissue)

The 3rd & 4th label are of the original 1965 UK Promo and issue - correct?

I know about the the UK London reissue from 1978.

The last label is the 'Northern' UK bootleg on North. Does anyone have any background on its history (who/when etc) please?

So besides the 1978 UK London reissue & the 2012 Outta Sight release ....... have I missed any?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide :)

Didn't the UK demo/issue get released before the US demo?

 

My info say US = Dec 1965

UK = 3 Jan 1966

I can't find a Cameo / Parkway Singles release database to confirm.

There is also an OOTP boot (1973 according to 45Cat).

The yellow above is a boot, also from the 70s, but a bit later.

Thanks for confirming the 'yellow' as a Bootleg. Just by the image and the way the label 'sits' made me think that but visual is not always definitive :)

Yep, I missed that '73 OOTB Boot - thanks

It was auctioned a few years ago. I think that it is on a YouTube clip. You can see it before it starts spinning to play the actual record auctioned.

I think that it has a clip of Two Hearts Make One Love side too.

East Coast Test Press.  Bell Sound stamp and Cameo labels used but reversed obviously to utilise the blank side. 

Anyone have the delta number of the west coast press? Both sides

Hi Chalky, it has: P-965-A   O    monarch triangle 59431 and then something that looks like IRL

B side:  P-965-B   O  monarch triangle 59431- X         can't see the IRL thing but my eyes aren't what they used to be!😟

Hope you are keeping well.  Cheers Julian

Mate of mine still insists he had an orange and yellow issue back in the day?

On what label? In/from which country?

Parkway USA

But after seeing that yellow bootleg in this thread, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was this that he had.

 I can’t believe that he was in possession of the only known issue ever seen.

I assume that the timeline for this is that it would be pressed around October / November at Monarch for a potential release in December 1965 during which time someone at Pye requested the tracks for release in the UK. It is strange that no other country made a similar request.

Once the decision was made in the US to shelve the release I guess that the window of opportunity for release in other countries must have disappeared too.

The Greek top ten,may well have been an issue, think they have white stock copies on that label, I can definitely remember it on the front of a manship list, early 2000's.

I havn't heard of the Top Tunes release but interested to know if one does exist. To this point most of Chubby Checkers records had gained a release in other countries. Following Two Hearts Make One Love / You Just Don't Know his next release Hey You Little Boogaloo did manage to get released in several countries and then Looking At Tomorrow / You Got The Power suffered a similar fate as US only with Stock Copies difficult to find.

A Greek Top Ten release of Chubby Checker ? Really ?

Well that's new to me, I only know of the two Gamble releases, Frank Beverly and Dee Dee Sharp.

Anyone got an image ?

I'm doubting myself now, could have been Frankie Beverly, but I'm sure John manship would remember, it was his top auction item at the time. Seems to be a philly connection with the other top ten release's. Searched but can't a scan myself.

On 19th August 2020, John sold a Frank Beverly on the Greek label on his auction. There is 1 week in August 2020 which I couldn't find as Mr Z was away and had asked someone else to post. I do like odd releases of classic NS records, but I can't remember Chubby C on greek - but I'm certainly not saying that there isn't one.

All the best

No fair enough mate if you say it was released in Greece, I should have put as far as I’m aware Chubby didn’t come out in Greece.

I bet he's confused. He's at the right age.

Never heard of it and if it did perhaps re-issue same time as in Spain.

I'd bet the wife on it so I can't lose either way.

Apologies folk, think both our memories are addled. Maybe you're right and I'm just confusing with Frankie Beverly, I do find it odd that we both confused the two and and chubby is a Philly record, though. I'll file my copy next to my Trends album then. 😁

Stopped drinking brandy last week, possibly the DT's😂. Funny thing is, I'll concede, but I'm still not convinced, I can see the grainy scan on an old list, in my mind. Might book a holiday in Athens and get digging 🧠🥒😉
