There must be ten different boots of Gloria Jones. Just ask him what co,our the label is to start with.

Soul twins never booted but reissued legally by Atco in the early 70's. Deep blue label with small label name Karen at the top.

My Gloria Jones is a styrene copy, though perhaps it came out on vinyl too, I dunno.

according to JM there's a vinyl counterfeit that reproduces the 1964 styrene west coast press label design. would this be the vinyl boot then?

Basically the scans below of Tainted Love & A Touch Of Venus" are the Label Variations to look out for.

The Deadwax tells all if in Doubt as they are Matrix Stamped with a Delta Number.

From memory, the boot which has the black label looking like the scan earlier has "AZ" scratched in the dead wax.

Hippo.

Styrene copy of Gloria Jones is safest bet I'd say, unless you really know what's what.

(Sadly, many people don't realise the Northern records they bought for .80p back in the '70s are almost certainly bootlegs!) How I hate the damned things! :thumbsup:

my copy and sorry no scan of it, but should scan to add here is on purple coloured label. to think of this is making the original harder to tell compared to some of the other records.

It was I who purchased these on ebay. I can confirm that the Gloria does have AZ scratched in the deadwax as described by hippo. Bit pissed off by disingenuous nature of vendor on that one but only have myself to blame as I just dived at it as the auction was closing in 20mins! The Soul Twins (£20) I watched for a while and chose to pass up a chance to bid instead on an original demo for 5 times the price so am not too fussed so long as the reproductive quality of the disc is undiminished (unlike the Gloria).

I recently whittled down the 1,000 or so Northern tracks I have acquired on cds over the years to a hitlist of 60 tracks and was just guilty of ticking them off. The 15 others I have acquired this month have mostly been sourced in the States from respectable dealers (who don't sell bootlegs and highlight any re-issues).

Thanks again for everyone's responses.

Cheers

BG
