    OK, maybe I too should also be a tad less affirmative at times. Not to make things easier to tell the 2 different takes (not mix) by the eye (the ear will tell instantly), I have come by a last variation of the 2nd take (full with bass and horns) with a non scratched out ZTSX 97700 matrix ! The original attributed catalogue ZTSX number for the 'A' side 'don't lead me on' is 97699 and ZTSX 97700 is initially for the 'B' side 'what did I do wrong'. So my theory now goes like this; the first take/release is the one with the right matrix with the channel issue (lacking bass and horns). Noticing the mistake, a re-recording (or another take) was re-released instantly. Only this time the sides got mixed-up at the mastering stage and 'don't lead me on' got the B-side ZTSX 97700 scratched in matrix and 'what did I do wrong' got the 'A' side ZTSX 97699 scratched in matrix. A third and last release with the full bass and horns take was issued with the previous inverted matrixes scratched out and correctly re-scratched in as shown on the right in my previous post ! Phew...

    Precisions on Vinyl

    Me neither... the only one on Drew with such styrene/vinyl variation is the 'why girl'/'what I want'. Could you post up a scan/photo of your record ?
  3. In reality the bootleg question is not relevant to the northern "soul" records only. Too many pressing plant involved and as many different people involved in the process to make any generic rule as to what is a distinctive way to tell from "machined" or "scratched in" matrix between the original and bootleg pressings. BTW this greatest little record off all time is simply not rare enough to have suffered the bootleg treatment. Thank the lord.
  4. What label and pressing ?
  5. YUP ! Just as I ever compared both with my critical earbuds more so than with my "memory". Precisions fa me !

    The Younghearts : Little Togetherness

    Order of release or about. That since the Tempos release does not exist as a promo. So likely a rush release miss press without the name of the band change... Rarest of course. 1° The Younghearts 'little togetherness' on Canterbury styrene withe promo 2° The Younghearts 'little togetherness' on Canterbury styrene yellow stock 3° The Tempos 'little togetherness' on Canterbury styrene yellow stock 4° The Younghearts 'a little togetherness' on Canterbury styrene yellow stock 5° The Younghearts 'a little togetherness' on Canterbury vinyl dark yellow stock

    Poll: Version Battle - The Chase Is On

    Never heard it out but am not clubbing too much... I always found Johnny Howard 'I miss my lady' on the edge making it hard to "fall in love" with it. Even though on the musical arrangements it holds all that we love in that typical Windy C trade mark... I guess I find it lacking the subtleness or the inspiration I find on others of the genre and that era.

    Poll: Version Battle - The Chase Is On

    The Johnny Howard has maybe the Oomph ! and is indeed a rarer 45 so it's maybe more "Northern Soul" in that sense. But the Artistics (one of the finest group IMHO) has the music, the groove and the voices. Let's not forget the credentials with Carl Davis, Sonny Sanders and Gerald Sims. And I do hear that. I heard them first both around the same time in my younger days on the Kent compilations. Always loved the Artistics so much more to leave the although good version of Johnny Howard a much less desirable 45 to purchase. And I still get the same chills from the first drum & bongo and bass & guitar call intro...
  12. what source you got that "screen capture" from ? If this is real, it would be a 6 month or more second round issue with the "new" then label...
  13. Intense power house tune of the finest calibre. If this was rare... Ex condition of the rarer promo Atco copy. Was mint- (NOS) when I first bought it 20 years ago. Hear the soundclip of both sides and view the high resolution scans to judge better for yourself. winfield parker atco.mp3 £40 Free shipping all over the world, add £6 to have it registered Scans and sound clip of both sides with needle drop and lift from actual record for sale. Grading through M - EX - VG - G... PM me to inquire

    Admirations (Aspirations)

    Robb, I am guessing you're on the Paree 45 here (not the Peaches), then you could be corroborating my guess. That if the recording session pre-dates indeed the Eddie Silvers sessions, the Paree 45 could have been done after their hits for One-Derful. The scan of the Paree here above, between the Legends on Red Balloon (2nd release from the Lockett (then CUR) but with different flip side) dating from mid 1970 while the the Soul Majestic's on the Al-Tog press is supposedly dating 1969 or so... The more common copies of the Paree are bootlegs (made for the UK scene) I've been told. Not second releases. Of which the label is a copy of the original one. And I've never seen those font on 1967 nor 1968 records. But I haven't seen them all yet ! Could you show me one ? Cheers, Tim
