    Archie Bell 1000 Wonders Reissue

    Always wanted this on 45. Found a record store while on holiday in Seville last month. Only a handful of soul 45s to look through but yes, there it was! only VG+ copy and sleeve a bit battered but for 4 EUROS - that'll do for me!
  11. Accommodation and Two Wristbands available: I have booked and paid for a 1-bedroom CLUB apartment for this weekend. Due to the recent sad death of a friend and another's unavailability, there's only me now occupying and it would be a shame to waste the space. The bedroom is a twin (I think, or 2 bunks) and there's also a double sofa-bed in the lounge so ideally an additional couple or a couple of mates could ..
  12. Think it's a great tune but not sure I'd play it out (a recently departed mate of mine was a friend and neighbour of Ms Trent a few years back, in Majorca I think). Got a nice UK White Demo on PYE. One of those crystal clear recordings that came out of PYE's Oxford Street studios in the mid-60s a la Pet Clarke (although Jackie's vocal is certainly more soulful than the rather plumby sounding Petula ever was). Husband Tony Hatch wrot..

    Julian Covey Island

    Yeah, funny this. Top one seen most often as original in my view. Bottom could be label redesign rather than a formal second release. 70s reissue definitely couloured Palm Tree and there's also an EP on Sue label with Anglos (from late 70s i think). Jorge

    Collecting British

    Not sure what point you're making. Yes, technically, what you're talking about are original issues in the UK but if they're released 10, 20, 30, 40 years after the US original then they're all pressings/reissues to me (that's not to say that some of them aren't hard to find nowadays). Jorge

    U.k.action Records

    Sold a load of Actions recently (inc Barbara Mason) on Ebay having had more or less the whole run inc blue & grey 70s releases. Just kept one or two of the more Northern dancers for DJing (E Holman, Showmen, B Patterson etc). Have to say was disappointed in prices I got considering so-called collectability of the label. Only Roy Lee Johnson got over £20.
