Hi Dunc.

My fave tune ever.

Only an LP track, tho I did say a few weeks back Ian Levine played it off a moody 7 inch at the Rocket.

rest of the album is pants, but this track has no peers.

Sounds better when you convert it to mono and put it on a 7" though ... Rufus Lumley died last year and his widow wrote to me asking if I could get hold of his records for her, sad isn't it when the family don't even have them...all she had was a rubbish RCA single. I said she could have my Stateside demo of I'm Standing for $500 but for some reason she never got back in touch :wicked:

Dont want to add to your pain, but Matt from Trowbridge got it off a rock part of Ebay for 99cents plus $6 p&p a couple of months ago. :wicked:

No pain really, I got it from Aussie ebay a while ago, only for it to take nearly two months to arrive and to find that the record in the sleeve was something completely different, I contacted the guy and he refunded the money as he couldnt find the record!!

So at least with Manship you gets what you pays for.

Now who can I get to do a 7 " off it??

Once saw a youth at a cleethorpes niter with Taj Mahal LP (A LOTTA lOVE) cut down to 7" by a hacksaw I think. I assume it must have been the last track. Some folks only like 'singles'.

I went to a little place in Nottingham and had it put on a 7" in mono, keep meaning to get Mr Bicknell to play it out for me, but every time I go to find him at a Nighter he is well gone, if you know what i mean, Hic!

I remember seeing this at Wigan!!

Pretty rough job as well if memory serves. I think one of the Brackenridge twins from Mr M's bought it from that youth.

ps I stoped buying copies of the Rufus Lumley LP as I couldn't shift them for a tenner. Something to do with it being a dramatic pop record rather than soul I supposed :wicked:

I'll do you one if you want.

On the subject of lp's being cut down - chap from round here, Swoz, had the Kiki Dee album on UK Tamla Motown and the last or last but one track was a version of More Today Than Yesterday - he had that cut down to a 7".

Tee Hee Hee :wicked:

While I would never dispute people's right to enjoy whatever the want (Music-wise that is :yes: ) I have to say that old Rufus always sounded like a dodgy Elvis impersonator. :wicked:

Each to his own though...

I went apoplectic when somebody said Betty Turner - winds kept laughing, was 'lightwieght pop'.

I'm mellowing now.
