  1. Hi Chris, The Little Anthony tune shouldn't cost you anymore than £30 but it's tracking one down as they tend to stay put in collections as it is such an awesome tune, my favourite by him, I paid £15 for mine about 15 year ago. Just a hint too improve your searching on the internet the record is by Anthony and The Imperials not Little Anthony, I know it probably won't make any difference but some sites you have to search with greater accuracy. Hope this helps a bit, Regards, Alan
  2. Hi Ian, I've had my copy for about 10 years, paid £400, I don't know whether that was the right price but I don't regret a single penny of it, awesome tune and a great double sider, good luck with your hunt for one. Regards, Alan
  3. I would say there is very little diference between the promo and issue with the issue probably just a bit harder to find, does anyone know which is harder to find the Atco released issue or the black and silver label Eclipse design, which I assume is a local release prior to Atco/Atlantic picking it up. There is another brilliant release on Eclipse by Harry Deal called 'What Am I Gonna Do', a lot cheaper too. Regards, Alan
  4. The Canadian catalogue must be vast as nearly every day something else is found, my personal collection of canadian 45's consist of:- Alexander Patton - A 'lil loving sometimes - Capitol. Kurt Harris - Emperor of my baby's heart - Apex. Eddie Spencer - If This Is Love (I'd Rather Be Lonely) - ARC. Garnet Mimms - Looking for you - United Artists. Marie Knight - That's no way to treat a girl - Columbia. Wesley Paige and The Master Three - I've Got To Find Out For Myself - Columbia. and many more especially Motown releases on the white lable that carries the USA release number. Records that I don't posess but I know came out are:- I think all of the Precisions Drew catalogue on Stone. Eddie Parker - Love you baby - Stone. There's a lable called Rio which has many releases connected with Ric Tic amongst other USA small labels. The most astounding release which has turned up in the last 12 months must be the brilliant La Reine La Mar - That's Not The Way To Love - Capitol, I think one of our Soul Source members got it off Ebay, great record and it must be rare. Bobby Paris was originally discussed about a canadian release of 'Personnally', I haven't seen one but I do have this release on German Polydor with a picture sleeve, I showed this to Bobby Paris when he came to promote SWONS in Blackburn a good few years ago now, he said he had no idea it had a German release. I collect records from all around the world and some amazing ones are turning up, here are a few more that I own:- Lenny Curtis - Nothing can help you now - Hit Demo (Spanish). Ila Vann - Can't help loving tha man - Hit Demo (Spanish picture sleeve) (I have a couple of copies for sale of this at £50). Dee Dee Sharpe - What kind of lady - BYG (French picture sleeve). The Seven Souls - I still love you - Epic (French picture sleeve). The Fantastic Four - I love you madly - Tamla Motown Demo, (Australian) this is my prize possesion. The Unique's featuring Joe Stampley - Not too long ago - Argentina (Picture Sleeve). The Baltimore and Ohio Marching Band - Condition Red - Stateside (Australian). Gloria Scott - A case of too much lovemaking - Casablanca (Australian), up to now we think this the only known country to release this as a single. Al Gardner - Sweet baby - Googa Mooga (French Picture Sleeve). Eddie Parker - Love you baby - Googa Mooga (French Picture Sleeve). Eddie Parker - I need a true love - Googa Mooga (French Picture Sleeve) King Errison - Zola - Disque Vogue (French Picture Sleeve). Horace Faith - Black Pearl - Fontana (German Picture Sleeve). The Volumes - My kind of girl - London (Japanese). Steve Karmen Big Band featuring Jimmy Radcliffe - Breakaway - United Artist (Spanish Picture Sleeve). Jerry Williams - If you ask me - Exit (Spanish Picture Sleeve). Chubby Checker - You just don't know - London White Demo (Spanish Picture Sleeve) (got a spare copy of this if anyone wants one at £60). The Hesitations - She won'tcome back - Kapp (Spanish Picture Sleeve). Earl Grant - Hide nor hair - Decca Demo (Spanish Tri-Centre). Leroy Taylor - Oh Linda - Decca Demo (Spanish Tri-Centre). Jackie Wilson - Higher & Higher / I'm the one to do it - Decca Demo (Spanish Tri- Centre). The Showstoppers - Ain't nothing but a house party - Sono Play (Spanish picture sleeve). The Germs - I'm a teardrop - Exit (Spanish picture sleeve). The Sapphires - Who do you love - Karusel (Swedish Picture Sleeve Blue Vinyl). There are many more but I thought these may be of interest. Hope this helps, Regards, Alan
  5. There are many great female artists and I find it very hard to single out one, here are a few that do it for me. Regina Belle. Linda Jones. Tammi Terrell. Florence Ballard. Regards, Alan
  6. I have always loved instrumentals, I would agree with most of the posts re Milton Wright & The Terra Shirma Strings both sides are incredible productions The Gallop and Like a rolling stone which I have featured in my sets in the last year or two. Like alot of posts are saying that instrumentals aren't featured in sets anymore but I don't set my sets out so they don't include so called souless or pop instrumentals if they are in my box and I feel it's right to play it then on the decks it goes, infact last year at the There's That Beat Weekender at Mojacar in Southern Spain I felt the time during my set to play a real classic that doesn't get featured much anymore and I put on Earl Wright Orchestra - "Thumb a ride" - Capitol and the dance floor was crammed and atmosphere was awesome. My personal favourites over the years are:- The Autographs - "Sad Sad Feeling" on Loma & Joker. Al Kent Orchestra - "The way you been acting lately" - Ric Tic. The Boogie Man Orchestra - "Lady Lady Lady" - Boogie Man. Regards, Alan.
  7. Hi Pete, I reckon its Argentinian. Regards Alan
  8. Hi Steve, hope you are ok, thanks for backing up the info that Sebastion came up with, I knew Soul Sourcers wouldn't let me down. Regards, Alan
  9. Hi Keith, Thanks for the reply, you say you can tell the difference but how ????????? Regards Alan
  10. Can anyone help me in identifying an original of Joe Valentine as against the legit re-issue from a couple of years ago please and also what are the values of each. Were there any illegal bootlegs ever done of this record ? Thanks in advance, Regards, Alan.
  11. Anglo had one last week for £70 but it was only vg++, I would say more around the £100 in nice condition, great tune, I paid £40 for mine about 15 years ago. Regards Alan
  12. Hi Pete, I know what you're saying and I agree with you that it isn't 100% proof but I found it strange that he mentions it, we really need John to make a comment on it all. Regards Alan
  13. I have found what I believe to be confirmation of the information I was offering about SIR bootleg copies of Bari Track, I mentioned at the time that John Manship would be able to help confirm it one way or the other, I know John posts on here but he probably hasn't read this thread, anyway on John's latest record sales list (list 1039) on the next to last page he has a selection of current auction titles and on there is indeed a copy of Bari Track and the description he mentions that this copy he has for sale has the raised ARCHER stamp in the deadwax which would suggest to me that must be copies that hasn't got the raised ARCHER stamp on it. Regards, Alan
