  1. What’s a charity hard drive? Genuine question - although my guess is a load of unlicensed tracks. I’m not crusading here - just never heard that term before. However if it turns out to be someone selling stuff they don’t own on the basis that “it’s for charity” that would be hilarious. I really hope I’ve got the wrong end of the stick!
  2. Numbering Ltd releases is a nightmare. Is it 500 limited to the UK, Europe or worldwide? You state 500 copies then it turns out that 70 copies are off centre or warped and get returned so you press another 70. You can’t turn the numbering system back so someone gets No 564 and accuses you of pressing extra copies. It’s never as straight forward as people imagine...
  3. I was working in a record shop when the reissue came out. They were definitely done two years later once the record was in demand by the NS scene. The info pertaining to year of release on Discogs is incorrect. It should read: 53438 Baby Blue / Name It You Got It (black backing paper) 1974 56438 Baby Blue / Inst version (black backing paper) 1975 55438 Baby Blue / Name It You Got It (pink backing paper) 1976 1976 was the year that Decca changed the paper it used for labels. All of a sudden, the singles that they kept on catalogue as they remained steady sellers (Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, Zombies and so on) all started appearing with the pink backing paper. I don’t know why the matrix numbers aren’t consecutive but I’m 100% certain that’s the order that they arrived in the shop. As I implied earlier, it was a matter of some amusement with regard to the recording industry’s failure to understand the NS scene when they initially issued the wrong side with an instrumental flip...
  4. We've done this on a number of occasions. JEP is just for demonstration purposes as I had it to hand in back in 2008. By the time of the reissues, the paper that Decca used for it's labels had a pink backing. The originals had black backing. If there's a trace of pink around the cut out centre or under the blue it's definitely a reissue - Paul Mooney explained that the paper is known in the trade as John Heyer "pink-back" paper. The 2nd issue gets sold as original all the time and it's almost like people don't care anymore, but the reissue was definitely done specifically for the Northern scene. Second attempt by Decca actually as they at first reissued the other side, the Alvin Stardust sounding Glam Rock stomper Baby Blue - complete with instrumental version on the flip as instros were "Big at Wigan"
  5. The Mighty Voices of Winder 45 is from 1971 - three years after Sam and Dave.
  6. I’m away at the soul funk jazz fest this weekend but our staff will look after you if you pop in. We’ve a couple of Schweppes crates full of 45s in the kallax in front of the counter and 2 x boxes of rarer 45s behind the counter. New soul LPs and CDs are also downstairs while 2nd hand albums are upstairs, where there are also some nice Reggae albums (Island, Trojan etc) On Friday Eleanor will be working with previous owner Rod, who’s helping out and on Saturday it’s Eleanor and Ruben. They’re all really nice so don’t be afraid to ask for help - it’s not the sort of record shop where the staff are sarcastic or take the Micky out of customers! Say hi to Jinxy and the guys at the Cask
  7. Update from Universal rep re Marvin Gaye LP: This was a limited run but they have decided to “re-press” (due to some faulties) ….this will take around 5/6 weeks.
  8. We still have the Ronnie McNeir 45 in stock. info@recordrevivals.co.uk Or come to sunny Scarborough for the bank hols!
  9. Not at work at the moment but I thought it was due out in UK this Friday... My mistake. Released 29/03/19 but now OOS at Universal. I've asked the rep if they're expecting more stock and and will update on here accordingly.
  10. Distro told us they’d sold out when I asked. Thanks for this
  11. Hi all I've avoided doing frequent updates as don't want to bump but I need to do just this one so we're up to speed. We're down to the last 2-3 copies of Parliaments, Darrell Banks and Garfield Fleming and we have just x 1 copy each of the numbered box sets of Northern and Modern Soul 45s. However we have managed to secure a few extra copies of the superb Colemine Records Soul Slabs box set consisting of 3 Lps in red vinyl, compiling 27 singles from the label. There are currently 2 x copies on Discogs at £5O and £64. Ours are £45 plus shipping at cost. This was our favourite RSD release in the shop and the staff have been really hammering my copy! Might have to buy myself a spare at this rate Our stock of this release will be delivered Thursday so we can mail out Friday and Saturday. Any other orders can be mailed from Tuesday onwards as we're closed Mondays. You can PM on here but the easiest way to order is to email the shop as our staff can respond if I'm out valuing collections etc email: info@recordrevivals.co.uk Thanks to everyone who's ordered RSD 2019 stock from Record Revivals - it's a competitive world out here and we genuinely appreciate your business Cheers! Paul, Gill, Eleanor and Ruben at Record REvivals
  12. A lot of record shops are run by rock blokes (and in more recent times rock women) Andy. Many of them don’t know anything about the soul releases other than Otis etc so they don’t order them. Consequently we don’t do bad for a relatively small shop
  13. Hi Martin Can you drop an email to address below please. I'll put a copy aside before I leave at 2.30 today and will send shipping cost when back in the shop tomorrow Cheers Paul info@recordrevivals.co.uk
