Hello,

As promised, here is the last part of the rare Northern 45's list. Once again, some great stuff here. There's never been a better time to buy records (or a worse time to sell them!) J

All the best

Pete

Best unissued track I've heard for ages, thumping uptempo dancer, 100% northern with great vocal from Barbara.

TOMMY T & THE TARGETS - SALES PITCH - BIG R DEMO M 250

Wow..well I'd never heard this before...spoken word track with a guy visiting an office where he tries to chat up the secretary. Backing track is a pounding, uptempo "Anyway you wanta" sort of thing with the secretary's typewriter bashing out percussion throughout. One you'll either love or hate, I think it's brilliant.

I've heard it now - one for sale on ebay for $300. Fraid I prefer the Tommy T version, probably cos it's the first one I heard, but what I;d really like to hear is an instrumental version of it.

My Book has got "Lucky" on the flip so sort of works out at 150 dollars a side then. Haven't you still got that prog to remove vocals?
