  1. This record is completely 100% legit and probably the best copy ever available for sale in the world. The others looked relatively dark because they were comparatively worn and moisture damaged. Also the lighting/exposure/flash will play a part in what colour the label presents in photographs. If the buyer gets what's in that photo it's totally and utterly authentic.

  2. It's only ever been on a blue label. What's your point?

  3. Hope this helps to illustrate how labels were produced on finished records.

  4. The black type is overprinted on existing two-colour Turbo 'blanks'. The position of the black text can of course change relative to the existing label graphics as Sebastian says. Here's an image of some Motown and related blank sheets:

  5. I don't think the type is different on the RS copy.

  7. The point of my post above was that Jim Ford's links with soul music were greater than those of Pat and Lolly Vegas. I would suggest that the soul feel of the Danny Monday record came equally through his involvement.

  8. That's Danny Whitten who was in Crazy Horse with Neil Young. Unlikely to be our man I would say.

  9. This topic has long fascinated me. The Redbone connection is often bought up yet hardly anyone ever mentions that the co-writer of both sides of the Danny Monday 45 is the late, great Jim Ford. Ford was Bobby Womack's best collaborator and wrote or co-wrote many great Womack sides: Harry Hippie, Point Of No Return, Where Do We Go From Here, Secrets, American Dream, Tell Me Why, Trying To Get Over You etc. As a singer Ford only released one album during his lifetime. He was apparently a notoriously difficult character who experienced a longtime struggle with substance abuse. For the broadminded soul fan his Harlan County album is essential. A lot of it is Country-based pop with a soulful flavour but Love On My Brain must be one of the greatest Blue Eyed Soul records of its era. I don't think Ford is the true identity of Danny Monday but I wonder if he isn't one of the voices on the Gene & Gary version which appeared as a 6Ts Anniversary single. The information above about Danny Monday and the 2nd Revolution is great. Could anyone follow that up? Is it a comment on a Youtube video? The singing on both sides of the single is scorching white soul and it would be a shame to think that was the only thing Danny Monday recorded.

  13. That 12" remix has an awful, weedy drum sound!

  14. These were pressed at two Decca plants. Gloversville NY and Pinckneyville IL. Pinckneyville used a ◆ symbol at the end of the b-side master number. Gloversville used a ✤ symbol at the end of the b-side master number.

  15. The above Chairmen track sounds a lot like the Danny Woods solo track Rollercoaster.
