  1. I think a lot of copies play with a repetitive hiss due to a pressing fault Dave. My copy plays fine though
  2. It's one you tube Ady... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGdj1tUa3Yw
  3. Bought most of these when first published, missed a few so great to be able to catch upon the missing issues. Would be great to see the original Blackbeat fanzines again
  4. I was fortunate to pick up all 3 releases from a dealer in the states for $20 a piece.
  5. 7 day listing, only 3 bidders. One bidder with 17 bids all on the same day, looks like they were trying to outbid the other high bidder who won it..
  6. Can't get used to sharing you is awesome, shares the same backing as Lonely One - Tempos / Steptones
  7. From the Funky16Corners website:- "Written by Frank Wilson (the man that brought you ‘Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)’), ‘Somebody (Somewhere) Needs You’ was also recorded by Darrell Banks (Revilot 1966). The backing track from the Ike and Tina version was recycled several times. First as Larry Laster’s ‘Go For Yourself’ (with new lyrics by, and credited to Leon Sylvers) on Loma in 1966, a year later by Herb and Doris on the HIP label, as ‘Lighten Up’ by Larry Atkins on the Highland label, and by Ty Karim as ‘Lighten Up Baby’ on Car-A-Mel! Interestingly enough, the Darrell Banks record
  8. I thought that Bobby Angelle would have gone for a lot more, particularly following it's recent use in a cereal commercial.. not sure the shredded wheat sales pitch did much for the auction price I suppose the fact that it's recently been reissued on a Kent 45 may have lessened the demand for it.. always had a soft spot for this tune
  9. Wasn't aware of that Baz, thank goodness I have a nice minty white demo and not the blue issue then
  10. Blimey £413 for the Embraceables, I know it's a quality choon but I would have thought maybe £200-250 tops, used to be around £75-100 but most copies turned up always seem to be vg or trashed
  11. So what about Johnny Sayles on St Lawrence. I've got a copy with no address at the bottom and I always thought the original's should have Distributed by Chess at the bottom?? It seems strange that they would bootleg this and make everything on the label identical apart from the address... actually after writing this, I've just noticed on the Mamie Galore label variations that on the pink issues where the "distributed by..." is missing on the bottom, that the address appears at the top under the St Lawrence logo... not the case with the Johnny Sayles, so probably a boot after all!
  12. Here's a couple of scans of the early goldmine cd's
