REMEMBER THIS TRACK TOO, THINK I MIGHT HAVE IT ON AN OLD CRAPPY TAPE SOMEWHERE, RECORDED LATE 70'S AT CASINO IF MY MEMORY SERVES ME RIGHT. POSSIBLY WAS C/UP AT THE TIME BY PAT

BRADY? IT WAS A GREAT SONG, JUST LISTENED TO THE LINK KOLLA LEFT FOR B KENNEDY & NO IT ISNT THAT, MORE UPTEMPO DANCER TYPICAL OF THAT TIME. I'LL TRY AND DIG IT OUT & P[OST UP WHO PAT SAYS IT BIS ON THE TAPE, MIGHT THEN JOG A FEW MEMORIES. OR AS PREVIOUSLY PHONE OR EMAIL PAT BRADY (DETAILS AVAILABLE ON HIS WEBSITE) AS HE IS USUALLY VERY HELPFUL WITH QUERIES LIKE THIS - PARTCULARLY IF HE HAS ONE FOR SALE!!

HAPPY HUNTING

GRANT

P.S. COULD BE THE B-SIDE OF THAT ELUSIVE LEGENDS TRACK I AM AFTER (LOL)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I contacted Pat myself for you - he came back to me saying the following (pasted from my email):-

Dear Grant

I'll have to go on "who wants to be a millionaire" at this rate.....My starter for ten.....The record was Billy Kennedy on Silver Records. It was actually something that was released in the 70's that John Anderson found on

a trip to Detroit around about 1978 though it is thought to have been a 60's track that was lying dormant in the vaults. Value-wise, around £50 I'd guess

although you don't see it much.

Hope that's of help

Pat

Well it aint the track I have on Wigan tape - so the one guest is after is probably the one i've got on tape as the tarck on www.soulclub.org. Mystery eh, i'll defo dig out the tape !

Listened to the WIGAN TAPE with above record on it, Pat actualy announces it as Tony Middleton 'When I Was A Kid' surely must have been a c/up? certainly isnt the B Kennedy record - nuthin like!

Anyone shed any more light? looks like pat needs to ask the audience!!

Not the one you're looking for but Betty Wrights version of "if i was a kid" (Alston) is also super and the flip "life" is really good on the more modern side of things..
