Dolly Gilmore... What A Record

Recommended Posts

My latest love record wise is : Dolly Gilmore - Sweet Sweet Baby - DOVE

Is it around the £400 mark ? Wondering how many copie's and which dj's I can pester to play it for me biggrin.gif

Such a suberb recording and the label - well what more can I say......

On John's auction at moment - sadly won't be the one buying it - but if someone want's to buy it for me... :D

The flip is much better imo " your the yes in my life"......

Brett Franklin plays this out quite a bit as does Mick H

I agree, love both sides but if I had to choose... :D Last time there was one on Manship's it went for about £800 if I remember rightly, seen a couple for sale (probably on here if you do a search) for £500-ish.

Cracking two-sider. Sold a copy a while back for just over £300. Think I might be regretting that in more ways than one, soon, even though that was, realistically, top-dollar. At the time. mellow.gif

This is the same price I thought it tended to sell for.... £500 seems high ? but who knows....;. mellow.gif

Top funk tune, but of classic thanks to Wrighty, pretty sure it got it's first airing at the "Texas Funk" launch party a few years ago, I've got the live recording of Ian Vs Keb Vs Josh, I'll see if I can fish it out and post it up on here, worth a listen for the drunken nonsense on the mic! It's on his "Sisterfunk 2" compilation if you want a good copy of it on CD.

You should get yourself down to London this weekend for Soul Revolution Karen! You'll hear plenty of stuff like that in the "Deepfunk Room", I'm sure the DJs would be happy to take requests of that sort of quality thumbsup.gif

Hello Ste,

Spun this last night at Mr Cato's excellent Bay Horse gig.

Been a cult record for many years as a result of Dave Godin championing the record. I know he definately reviewed it in Blues and Soul back in the 70s but can't remember precisely when.

Seems to have taken off in the last three years with interest from the Funk scene. Which is not surprising as it is more of a funk record than a northern record.

Interestingly enough, there is another version by her on canadian "Right On" a label with the same design but with no connection to Dave's own "Right On" label.

Great record both sides.

Thanks for the lift the other week by the way. You obviously made it home!

Regards Alan

My recollection is that Dave Godin mentioned the other Dolly Gilmore 45 on Startown??? back in B&S around 75ish - I picked up the Sweet Sweet Baby 45 on the basis of that review in 1976 - I never did find the other!!! I never heard it played at venues in 75/76 but it was known by people but was regard as too offbeat. I always played it with the likes of Diane Jenkin's Tow-a-way Zone - another Godin rave which I bought after reading his review.

I've had the record for decades... Was talked about years ago, but didn't realise it was in demand 'again' until a couple of years ago when Mike Charlton played it at Yarmouth and later when Alan Darker got his.

Mine had been gathering dust in the drawer since the mid 70's... but will almost certainly be giving it a spin at MONUMENTAL next Saturday night!.

Also have the 'Right On' version which has the superb "Aint No Man" on the flip.

Just checked - my mind is going in old age!! Godin reviewed Sweet Sweet Baby in B&S 173 in November 1975 - is there one other side by her on Right On?? I had Startown in my mind because Godin reviewed Eddie James on that label at about same time!! I must have bought it after he reviewed it - probably Ebony Sounds???

Cheers

Good to meet you both. Look forward to seeing you again. Great night agian last night.

Generally speaking, I must try and get the "right on" version on Sean's rec of the b-side. However, I've got a feeling the price has hiked up on the strength of the "Dove" version.

It's funny how these things take off. I new about the record for years as I had it on tape, with no track listing, took me some time to figure out who it was. A mate Chris Shepherd reminded me of it as he had bought it on the basis of Dave's review. I must say I began to panic as the price got higher and higher. I was lucky for once and got it a fair price a few years back. Nothing like the current value. Crazy.

Yes Colin,

The 'Right On' is entitled 'Sweet Sweet Man' but is essentially the same record.

The flip is quite a goodie too 'Aint No Man Like My Man'...

Hi Karen

I recently featured the other side of the Dolly Gilmore on my blog:

Cheers

Hi Colin

Thanks for that - "Don't you know your the yes" is very good - but it's still "sweet sweet baby" that has that extra something for me.. :ohmy:

Fancied getting myself down to the Soulrevolution Jame's - look's like a good niter - will try to make it this weekend if not will be the next one... :unsure: (gently reminder about cd) smile.gif

Karen

Dolly Gilmore is another one of those sides that sounds just right today, and though fairly obscure wasn't that hard to get hold of in back in '75. Black Wax had copies on their list and it got a few spins (at you-know-where!) at around the same time as the Boogie Man Orchestra and "Supership" etc. When he had a shop in Walsall C.1977, Pep even had a few Dolly Gilmores in his "cheap box" @ 30p!! (absolutely true!)

Moral of story is "never sell a record you like, 'cos ya just never know..." sad.gif
