Shoulda Gone Massive

Just listened to Garland Green - Don't Let Love Walk Out On Us RCA 10889 1977

Great record, (£25 Shifty) Been £25 for 25 years! Well maybe not, but a long time. Vastly under rated and underplayed imo.

What other records never really made it? Twice! Flop on general release and flop on the NS scene?

I know what you mean Shrine. Don't know about tried and trusted oldies. Some 'newies' are instant and go massive. I'm talking about sounds that may have been perhaps overlooked to some degree, deserved better maybe biggrin.gif

I understand biggrin.gif Don't really think this is that much of a political hot potato as such and not really blaming any dj's per say. Although another vastly underplayed would be monster is Steve Aldo - You're Absolutely right - PARLAPHONE Evey time I ask Mick Smith to play it, he takes it out of his box and shows me as if to say "yeah, here you are", but never/rarely plays the bugger! :lol:

No I meant Jerry Jackson, it's horrible early 60's pop like most of his records. I love the Steve Aldo record though (and on the same label, John Andrews & The Lonely Ones - It's just love)

During The Late 80's And Early 90's Myself And Glyn reardon Specificly Collected And Searched For Unknown And semi-Known Northern ,We found A lot Of Crap But Also A Lot Of Stuff That Was (And Still Is ) Overlooked.

We Put On A few Soul Nights In This Vain And Were Virtually' run Out Of Town' For trying To Play New Music :rolleyes:

Three Of The Tracks That I Used To Play Have Recently Been Discused On This Forum ,Chantels,Ann caudell And Now The Steve aldo,Which i Telephoned Pete smith One saturday Afternoon A Few Years Ago For Info Which He happily Gave Me (Thanks Again) :rolleyes: . The Great Man Guy Hennigan Once said "Every Record Has Its Day" Which Has proved To Be True ,eg.. Ruby Andrews

What I Reckon It All Boils Down To Is Who Plays It, Not What It Sounds Like,If Top Dj,s Played These Records Then They Would go .This Happens On A Local Scale ,A Popular Dj Plays A Record That Gets Popular At The Local Soul Night But Thats Probably The Only Place Said Record Gets Played.A Good Example Of This Would Have Been The Old Sweet Pee club In Hinckley .

Linda,

I can't thank you enough for putting this up!

I've been raving about it ever since you played it at the Hideaway and was breathtaken by its beauty.

Everyone I spoke to had never heard of it and said all his other recordings were terrible.

This is a real gem.

Hoorah to you. At least now Orton can claps his ears round it for the first time.....

Thought it might be worth mentioning that 'Where are you' by The Four Sonics on Triple B records is identical to Johnny Dixon, giving you a double chance at getting the record cheaply

Roy Hamilton came out on 45 and there is rather a good UK version, by someone I can't remember off the top of my head, anybody else know it?

Yeah think that is the same track, not been able to 'kick it' tho as still at work - min vol etc. No joy on sound files sadly, KTF still shut, think the Soul Police nabbed them :lol: The Eddie Day track is Whats on your mind 1958/59 Shrine?

I think, I'm not sure the Roy Hamilton may have been issued as a single on Epic :lol:
