Looking for Deon Jackson - Someday the sun will shine. Is it really rare cannot seem to find it anywhere.

I am back on the scene from the late 70's and I would like to congratulate Grant for the events at the Cheadle Hulme Legion, keep them coming.

The track was only ever on a very battered studio acetate which Tim Brown sold to Nige Parker in the early nineties. It's currently owned by Carl Fortnum. However, there are one or two EMI's of it in circulation and so someone might do you a copy or an MP3. It may well have come out on some bootleg compilation at sometime.

Used to be Gary Spencers and I thought this was where Carl got it from?????

Gary deffo spun it in the 80's and 90's, got it on a tape off him. Carl now has it and is the only gunuine one, anyone else playing it is playing a cut/emidisc.

wasn't there once some story that says

the original acetate was hammered so much the quality was well dodgy, and as the original owner never had a copy cut, was thought a good quality version was lost for ever?

Possibly another track maybe not

As Chalky says loads of dubs now about

Nigel Parker bought the original acetate of Tim Brown around the turn of the nineties (when Martin Coppell was selling stuff) for about $650, if I remember right (plus Magnetics @ £2000, Danny Moore @ £750!!). The acetate's 'wax' is very thin and was begining to break up a bit. Nigel would let anyone have a tape of the acetate at first (except me) , but finally let Carl and Spena have an EMI disc. I think Gary then did a few tapes for people who since have cut acetates. Unless Carl has sold it in the last few weeks, he still has the original acetate.
