Thanks Ken :unsure:

Andy,

Flip it for a fantastic down tempo, almost beat ballad, of epic proportions. In fact it blows he 'Money' side completely away.

Nothing Andy, just that one is viewed as slightly rarer than the other - I think :D

IMHO (for what it's worth) i reckon the green ones are the first pressings cos all the other Gemini releases are green too (I think?). I reckon they had a bit of a local hit with it so had to press some more at the time and pressed them in yellow. Both are viewed as originals of course! This could be complete bo**ocks though and am quite prepared to be shot down on this one, but it makes sense to me smile.gif

Cheers

Streetlamp was more than just a local hit: it got into the R&B Hot Hundred and must have sold many tens of thousands of copies in many locales throughout the US. There are at least two green issues, with the one with the credits in a more compressed typeface being far less plentiful. I think it's debatable whether that particular green issue is worth any more money than the more common green issues, or where it comes in the chronological sequence of pressings of the release.

UTSL is a really special record and one which blows many of the ultra-rarities away in terms of power and quality. Out of all soul records I've played to 'non-soul' friends over the years this always gets by far the best reaction.

One of the later (but still 60s US) pressings of under the streetlamp has a mention of the new pittsburgh ownership of gemini (which happened near the end of the label's existence), I saw that variation only once.

Yes Bob, that's the one I mentioned above with the more condensed typeface and the Gateway, Pittsburgh distribution credit. I would guess this is far harder to find than the Taurus distributed west coast copies - by how much I can only guess.

As stated above this record sold in relatively huge quantities (for an indie soul release) and the switch from green to yellow labels during the pressing run can most likely be explained by the pressing plant simply running out of green label 'blanks'. I imagine the yellow label copies were manufactured within days or weeks of the greens rather than at anything like enough distance to be considered a re-issue.

Mine cost 50 quid, so if it's that common, the flaming price should come down, shouldn't it? Or am I whingeing?

Ive got to go with "Money" myself.

"Sundown in Watts" is another gem from them, only heard it for the first time at the 100 club in December. Blew me away. Got it on a cd ( Shriek! gasps of horror :P:thumbup: ) for listening at home.

It's a bit pricey is it not compared to "money"? 100 ish would I be right?

You would be fortunate to get a Kapp copy of Another Sundown In Watts for 100 quid: the recent price is more like three times that amount. Another good record, but nowhere near as good as Streetlamp in my opinion. But then I've always been slightly bemused by the reaction which You Got To Have Money gets. A good, albeit generic group dance record, where UTSL really is a complete masterpiece in all departments: the lead vocal, the harmonies, the production and the spine-tingling lyrics.

Yes they were, they were all legally licensed, it's just that the Guinness label was apparently constituted to take advantage of the US tax laws.

Then you gotta listen to t'other side of ' Another Sundown......' 'I'm So Glad' and hear Jimmy as he pours out his love for his girl....a brilliant side I think
