Ali's got my old copy - dunno about £150 though. I got it and sold it for about £75.

It is a great record, heard it for the first time on sunday, for some reason I can't seem to stop singing it now.

Smallest Man Alive on Ultra City.  £150ish.  Old Stafford spin.  Will post a sound file in media section.

Dave Thorley my notes say - could be wrong about who played it first.

Also, sure it's a 70s record (1970) - although sounds earlier. Not sure if I took a label scan when I flogged it.

Martin Thomson certainly used to spin it at Shoes, don't know if he's still got it.

According to some C.d notes I have on the track,

The Black eyed peas, a group comprising largely of ex-members of Th Del-Vikings doo-wop group.....Corinthian 'Kripps' Johnson, Ritzy Lee and Billy Woodruff plus John Byas.

I first heard it courtesy of Irish Greg who used to play it but I understand it was originally Dave Thorley who discovered it. Used to clear the floor regularly at TOS and SITC and I eventually sold my copy but then bought another one a year later. Continued to clear the floor with that one and sold that copy as well in the end!

Personally I really like it, but it does seem to get a lot of people's backs up for some reason (in fact, one friend of mine regularly cites it as being among his most hated records ever for some reason ranting_1.gif )

I would have thought it could become an indemand tune for funk/soul minded people given the chance and I seem to remember it being from either '71 or '73 or thereabouts?

Rather Good IMHO.

Far better than some of the stuff being touted for huge sums these days,I mean,at least it has a 'traditional' Northern beat & passable vocals.

Meaningfull lyrics too shhh.gif ........
