There was a track in the seventies. Can't find the name in any search but the lyrics went - "Let nobody tell you what to do, you gotta be your own judge and jury too."

There was a brilliant bongo riff in it.

Undying gratitude if you can point me to an MP3.

Windy.

often asked but never really got a definte answer on this and related first 12 inchs

can always remember a local dj claiming temprees - i found love dancing on a disco floor -( remember that , wonder if it sounds as cheesy nowadays as the title - was the first one, but more than likely meant first one he saw)

found a 10 page article on history of 12 inch

its in french with english at bottom

quite interesting with bits like had no 7 inch blanks only 10 inch etc...

main info clip is

"Ten Percent" is the First commercial 12" ever released.Is South Shore Commission, the first promo ?

Historically,and technically it's still impossible to present you a conclusion of the first 12" out of press. but you must know that it is rumored (though unconfirmed) that Todd Rundgren released a promotional one-track 12" inch single in...1972. One more thing, Al has also in his hands a piece of the story; a 12" inch of a jazz artist (one-sided) released in 1973.On those two case, the 12" were loaned for Radio promotion only.

On commercial side, things are clearest; the ever first 12" commercially produced can be accorded to SALSOUL records. It's the 12" of DOUBLE EXPLOSURE's "ten percent" record.(#SALSOUL 12D-2008). But the earliest 12" numerical is Carol Williams "More" (12D-2006).

U.S im told the new book love saves the day a history of u.s disco states BOBBY MOORE-CALL ME YOUR ANYTHING MAN-SCEPTER TEST PRESSING though i havnt read it yet,you mention south shore comission i have train called freedom on a test press but i assume you mean free man thats the only one of these i havnt got and i need it!!!!

its funny how those u.k ritz monsters JAMES WELLS-BABY IM STILL THE SAME MAN and 24 HOURS A DAY-BARBRA PENNINGTON both full versions on u.k promos have been almost forgotten now,they are both really rare,and how BIG were these at the ritz!!

Contempo released Ernie Bush -Breakaway on 12 inch and it was one of the first ever in the UK. I still have the Blues and Soul Mag in storage so I will dig it out and check the date, but it was mid 76 I recall (I bought the record in Alan Fearnley's in Middlesbrough, that record shop was a haven for new release USA soul in the 70's)

Hey-hey - I didn't know that.

I've only got it on LP - brilliant album that I picked up in a boot sale years ago which also has stuff like First Choice's "Let No Man Put Asunder".

Salsoul was a great label though - i've got a few 12s including the really easy-to-dance-to-not Bebu Silvetti's "Spring Rain" :)
