  1. Possibly THE Rarest Soul 45?

    Anyone want a Saundra Mallett -cheap! https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/56666362_saundra-mallett-the-vandellas-camel-walk-tamla-motown Wish I'd spend my money on lots 0060 (Frank Wilson test presses x 57) and 0061 (Andantes x 131)

  14. MIGHT BE A DAFT ASS QUESTION BUT ... ???? Stereo / Mono?

    The demos were obviously to promote the record through radio play. Stereo singles were around as early as 1959. Around 68/69 they released singles in stereo again, but they sounded odd because the radio stations transmitted on AM using mono equipment (particu...
