  1. Just seeing if there is any further information on how to check an original of this come about over the last ten years? I had a copy bought as a repress some years ago. Bought a copy at a record fair today, thought to be an original (with the option to return if I found out differently). But I am struggling to find out any info. The labels are the same having the squiggly yellow line in the thick black line, under the logo. The only difference I can tell is the material. The known repress kinda has a thick flat edge. The other doesn't. Any help appreciated.

    Was up for $1500 plus post
  3. This is one of my faves - sweet with a beat
  4. I am sure mine (sadly gone) came from an Anglo American front page focus @ £15 - would say between 2000 - 2005?? So likely to have had a small quantity at that time.
  5. Presume this is the same song both sides?
  6. Beverley Savage - How can you face the world (Tornado) It is on youtube
  7. If not seen already, there are some great clips of The Ambassadors on the Hy Lyte show (1969) on YouTube I watched the other day. Including 'I really love you' & ' Can't take my eyes off you'. No band unfortunately, just them performing, but they certainly had some good moves. Not sure what the show is as it just seems to be them performing, with no audience or presenter. Promo maybe? There are lots of clips of other groups also Pat & the Blenders, The Ethics. Well worth a watch
  8. It could be Earl Young The Ambassadors - Soul Summit LP does not cite him in the band, but has a picture of him as the drummer. Wikipedia says: "Earl Young (born June 2, 1940, Philadelphia) is a Philadelphia-based drummer who rose to prominence in the early 1970s as part of the Philly Soul sound. Young is best known as the founder and leader of The Trammps[1] who had a hit record with "Disco Inferno". Young, along with Ronnie Baker and Norman Harris (the trio best known as Baker-Harris-Young), was the owner of the Golden Fleece record label.[2] Young is seen as the inventor of the disco style of rock drumming[3] (in Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes's "The Love I Lost" from 1973), as he was the first to make extensive and distinctive use of the hi-hat cymbal throughout the playing time of an R & B recording. This led to DJs favoring his recordings because they could hear the cymbal quite easily in their headphones as they "cued up" records to be mixed.[4] Young featured prominently on many Philadelphia International Records (PIR) recordings before moving on to Salsoul Records as part of the house band for the label. He recorded extensively at Philadelphia's Sigma Sound Studios as part of the group of musicians knows as MFSB. In a 2005 interview with Modern Drummer magazine, bassist Anthony Jackson was asked whether he recalled working with Young: "Yes, of course. That was back in the days when I was working with Gamble & Huff in Philadelphia. I didn't get to do too much with Earl because I was usually playing with Billy Paul's band, and Norman Farrington was on drums. But as I continued working for Gamble & Huff, I did a few sessions with Earl. My big Earl project was the O'Jays' 'For The Love Of Money.' I was astounded by his power. It may not come through on the records, but he is an ass-kicker. Listen to a classic Earl Young track like Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes' 'If You Don't Know Me By Now.' There's no click track. Earl had the drummer's equivalent of perfect pitch. I only saw the term referred to once, and it's called 'infallible rhythm.' Nobody has absolutely perfect time, but you find people like Buddy Rich and Tony Williams who can play without the time drifting. I've also seen studio drumming great James Gadson demonstrate infallible rhythm. I've seen him overdub drums on a track without a click track, and it's just perfect. I haven't spoken to Earl Young since we cut that record, but I've never forgotten those sessions. Earl stands as one of the great drummers. I'll never forget the impact that he made.".[5]"
  9. I would say the Spontaneous Arts issue is exactly the same version as the Triode. It is one sided, with just an etched pattern on the other side. There are a couple of releases by the Grambling College Marching Band but i think they are much later releases and have no idea what they are like.
  10. 1012/ green label, I would say from the description. More wah wah 70's sounding version.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obny1-4z-zU
