Nahhh... not a big one... a HUGE ONE!

I much prefer the Esquires version... far superior imo.

Although... I know from past experience myself... there will be a few who disagree.

You may well live to regret asking about this one :(

It's one of the toughest on the label. I've been looking for 15 years. I've been offered a few, mainly demos but I've also seen a couple of nice stock Issues. (Ted Massey has one on here). The last two demos I was offered ended up in the "Land Of The Rising Record Price". Turns out that there is a developing Detroit collectors scene in Japan. Damn yer eyes Mr Flynn! :thumbsup:

Joan's right though, the Esquires version is equally as good. Damn sight cheaper too. And it comes on a nice W/Demo! Nice. :(

Both great versions, but have to agree with Joan, Esquires just has it. But for many it's a case of the Jimmy Delphs is stupidly rare so it has to be better.

But just my oppion

I got a mint issue from John Anderson when Richard still had it covered as Tony Hestor. But as much as tried, I couldn't make myself believe it was better than the Esquires @ £3. So I sold it to a guy from the Midlands, who told a mate of mine he found it in a warehouse in Detroit :lol:

Love both versions but, for me, the Esquires wins by a yard or two!

Every home should have one.

John I hate to disagree, the fact that they paid so much doesn't mean that they prefer it. It could be that they want to own the rarest version/copy. I don't say there is anything wrong, everyone collects for their own reasons. But to imply a version is better cuz people pay more doesn't stand up.

I think we are splitting hairs though, they are both damn fine records, just one is easier to obtain than the other.

For me the Jimmy Delphs just edges it as I think it's his finest vocal. Strangely topical at the moment too ("Now get real funky, out on the floor...")

£70 off Ian Clarke, Those were the days, in fact the deal was 140 for JD and Bobby Mac on Vended which I still have. :thumbsup:

JD was the first version I had listened to at WC then when I got it on CD disappointment, it wasn't that big sounding record that I remembered but that's what the Casino added the awesome big sound and echo of the hall that it was, so The Esquires fits the bill for bigger sounding records but it's the same backing tack.

I can't shoulder the blame (on this occasion!), but I know of one which landed here not too long ago...mint and white it is too! If push came to shove, the Esquires win...almost every time.

Is it true Dave you got the record to add to your breakfast table of cut outs and discarded the black bit in the bin.
