Favourite Label

Recommended Posts

With all this debate about reisssues and bootlegs v originals going on I thought it might be an idea to see what labels people like. I'm quite partial to BOOT myself ........... with the fantastic hand drawn boot of course :wicked:

C'mon now.

Ace/Kent - no question. The real deal.

Most everything up there is crap.

Funniest name on a bootleg label is McKinley Mitchell on the MEMORY PAIN label.

Jas, one of your very few misinformed postings. OOTP released some of the best records ever played on the scene, from Jerry Williams to Chubby Checker. Around 50 releases and maybe only 5 or 6 duff ones among them.

Patti Young, Invitations, Rufus Lumley, Lynne Randell, Rat Race, Ben Aiken, well basically the entire Torch playlist.

I thought they were quite good, saw them the following day too at an all dayer at Baileys in Sheffield. Think they did a cover (live, don't know if it came out) of the Isley's Harvest for the world.

Crikey that takes me back a while I was there too and enjoyed it at the time, did you see The Exciters there as well ?

Was that when Terry Samson was in full swing with promotions ?

Yes "Okeh Okay OK," Saw the Exciters a couple of times at Wigan & remember (but not her name) the female singer squinting at the heaving crowd & saying over the mike "you all high or somethin'." Quite observant!!!

Remembered the week break between the 2 Linda & the Funky Boys shows cos I blew all my dosh on records at Wigan so had to thumb it over the Pennines to get home. It was freezing & didn't get back 'till late afternoon, my mum & dad went ballistic. One of the tunes was Earl Grant's Hide nor Hare which allways reminds me of the night in question, had it stolen off me a few years back & was gutted, not because I'd lost it but 'cos of the story that went with it.
