  1. Sorry to dispel your half-relief but I think the orange label with black vinyl (which I've got) is also a bootleg. Not sure what an original issue copy looks like. Have seen lots of white promos but never an issue copy.
  2. Hi, could anyone tell me title/artist of the following. Up tempo modern dancer, possibly late 70s. Female and male leads sing alternate verses. The male sings the chorus that goes "The grass is greener on the other side. / The course of love has made me realise / I'm the one with the real prize / this time." Female backing singers are prominent throughout, interjecting "baby, baby" and responding to lines from the verses.
  3. 1142/6 Argyle Street, Glasgow was a second hand shop called Silverdales. They had one room for records, and the bigger part was general second-hand stuff. I think the name "Record Bazaar" was just used for their mail order. I don't think Silverdales had any connection with John Anderson.
  4. I thought The Vals had a female lead for years after buying it.
  5. Eddie Parker's "I'm Gone" + "But If You Must Go" would have been the ultimate soul 45.
  6. I believe they were also Vito & the Salutations, of whom there are plenty of pictures. If that's right, they're blue-eyed.
  7. 2.52 is start of Del-tours - Sweet and lovely I think
  8. It sounds to me like Ricky Nelson's recording, but slowed down a bit.
  9. James McEachin who was involved with the Furys as a writer/producer, and early Otis Redding, had a long running career as an actor and turned up in many TV series. If you watch a lot of daytime TV you could probably see him quite often.
  10. If you have a fairly large number of UK releases, filing them by label order (and separate from US releases) is the easiest I find, because there were relatively few UK labels. Especially easy to navigate where they have distinctive sleeves: Chess, HMV, London, MCA, Stateside, Tamla Motown....
  11. Clyde McPhatter - Please give me one more chance.
  12. I think the earliest reissue for the scene, as it was then, to chart was Gene Chandler - Nothing Can Stop Me which Soul City released on 5/4/68 - two months before the Fascinations on Sue which I think is the other contender for earliest.
