Cathedrals came out on Pyramid by DC LaRue. I've got the 12" of Four Below Zero and it's one of my all-time favs.

J , only thing is once the 12'' version hits the breakdown after about 2 minutes it just goes on and on for about another 5 minutes right to the end with the chorus just repeating over and over and over again, very tedious IMHO, but I guess that kind of mix may have made sense at the time of release in the mid 70s being aimed at the Studio 54 type disco crowd high on cocaine.

Has anyone already posted it up (I cant find it) or could someone post up Gentlemen & Their Lady as I don't think I've heard it.

If I remember rightly the extended version in Refosoul is very poor sound quality, Would be good to hear a "clean" recording.

Are we still talking about Four Below Zero? That never came out on UK Pye did it? :thumbsup:

For those who don't know, Roulette and Pyramid - along with Salsoul - were among the earliest purveyors of 12" discs (for general sale) and routinely put different artists on either side of the same disc at that time.

7" of Four Below Zero was issued on Patrick Adams' P&P label before Roulette.
