    Spoliers - Sad man's land - Turbo

    For your delectation... A 'low rider' and always in demand. This comes again from the basement of the store owner who closed his shop decades ago. The Spoilers - Sad man's land - Turbo - £120 The label has some fading, but no rips, stains, writing or flaking. The vinyl is bright and shiny but has a small edge storage warp in one specific place which does NOT affect the play. There is a light 'swoosh' on the run in for a second or so when it passes over but after the music kicks in it plays loud and proud. All sales guaranteed with full refund etc. Postage 1.50 UK First, 2.50 recorded and 5.00 worldwide or special at cost. Payment by Paypal as F&F or add 5% if that's your preferred option. ATB Andy

    Great Book Recommendation

    I'd recommend having a delve into it. I came out the other side far more positive than I thought I would !

    Great Book Recommendation

    Hi all I've followed the work of Hans Rosling for many years and got his new book for crimbo ' FACTFULNESS - Ten reasons we're wrong about the world- and why things are better than you think'. Rosling is a medical doctor by profession working in the poorest parts of the world. He's worked for the W.H.O, UNICEF and was a founder of Medicines sans Frontiers. He is also a professor of international health and worked for the Swedish government in research. As he was diagnosed with terminal cancer he decided to research and write a book challenging the perceptions - predominantly of the west - around the state of the world. Using his knowledge via years of international, governmental and NGO experience and current statistical information he put together a fact bases analysis of the current position. The western perception of other parts of the world is driven by politicians and the media who use out of date information and extrapolate single events into some doom laden scenario. He tackles a number of perceptions including health, education, poverty etc., and his conclusions are that the world is actually in a much better state than we think and what we are fed by the media and politicians is wrong. Its an easy and entertaining read and not "heavy" at all. If you don't fancy this then I think there is stuff on Youtube and TED talks.

    Miracles - If your mother....Label variant ?

    A bit of research last night and it seems that the Miracles third LP was released in 1962 but most of the songs had been used already on 45's. Motown weren't keen on 'Mother' as a 45 and felt the new tracks didn't sound like the Miracles. So the solution was to go back to 'Way over there' which flopped on its 1960 release and back it with 'Mother'. However as you say #94 was its best place in the chart. The initial mix of 'mother' wasn't great and Motown decided to pull the 45 and remix and reissue, hence the 06 and 09 records. Another source suggests that as Motown grew worldwide and Smokey Robinson's individual popularity had increased towards the later 60's Motown tried to capitalise again by reissuing some of the earlier 45's. No firm evidence on that just speculation.

    Miracles - If your mother....Label variant ?

    Yes looks like ARP but a bit mashed. Can we confirm repress ? If so why would Motown repress ?
  12. Put this in the wrong thread.... Thread in 2014 in Wants about the variants for this 45 Ok so I know this thread goes back some time but looking through the boxes I got a little curious about this. I've looked at Popsike and Google in general and I don't seem to see this label variant (see scan). It has 2 stamps in the run out groove - one is "Nashville Matrix" and the other I cant make out as its smaller (you might be able to make this out if you can enlarge - bottom left to the left of the Nashville matrix). The DM025209 is scratched in the run out also with a small "10" about 1 cm to the right. Way over there is the flip BTW. If any of you Motown aficionados can provide some info, that would be great. Cheers Andy

    Help With Lost Record...

    Len 25 years ago I found a Mel Britt I thought had been lost or stolen stuck inside an LP cover alongside the LP itself. For years I had dark thoughts and suspicions about its fate, but there it was in the LP cover. To this day I still do not know it got there, as I certainly would not have put it there, and finding it was pure chance as I was about to sell some albums. You probably have it somewhere, but that pesky vinyl ghost has moved it
