Sorry. I've definately seen it for sale on Polydor and i think i've seen the label. Pretty sure that was the British issue.

Oops someone beat me to it...

mines a US demo and also has a date stamped on it October 16 1967.

Maybe Oliver Norman (or is it Norman Oliver as the credits state) was a british singer with a US release? Anyone know owt about him?

It's about £50 mint on Polydor. I don't call that rare. Pink Decca is probably around £30.

The flipsides are different between the Polydor and Decca, no?

I'd say the Decca stock copy is the toughest..unless someone has a Polydor demo?

:D

Decca has risen in price, probably doubled in price since I first started playing it. last one I saw on e-bay was I think over $120. Seems to be plenty of demand for this now and for what is considered a £30 it's not that easy as some other £30 records to come across. See his other on Decca far more often.

Karl, I may have missed you finding out but he was deffo UK as teamed up with Tony Wilson (Originally from Trinidad) (Hot Chocolate) as The Soul Brothers and The Corduroys

"This was the duo of Tony Wilson and Norman Oliver. It looks like Shel Talmy had signed them in the hopes that they would develop into "house songwriters" for his Planet label. They placed a few songs before launching separate solo careers (with Oliver changing his name to Oliver Norman). Wilson later founded Hot Chocolate and is probably best known today for co-writing "You Sexy Thing"."

Tony mentions on his facebook face that Oliver Norman AKA Norman Oliver has passed away

You may wish to contact him as I don't "do" facebook as you know
