    Four Tops 'your Song' 7"

    I sold it to Pete. Glad it went down well. In addition to the Dells version the Laura Lee outing is also great although not as upbeat. More soulful perhaps.

  11. Hi Robb. I.ve had a look at the CD booklet. It just says MB was brought to Juggy by Bob Bateman and describes how the song was written. Listening to the record it sounds very much like a Detroit recording, that has to be Benny Benjamin on drums? I am not an expert though. There has long been speculation as to whether Marjorie Black was a pseudonym for someone else, even one of the Soul Sisters. I found this entry on a blog not long ago re who was Marjorie Black. 'As far as I know this is my dad's little sister. Back in the day she preformed by the names Marjorie Black, Mary Black or Mary Johnson. Again... I am not sure but if this is my aunt, I was told her biggest selling 45 was "These Tears" by Mary Johnson. It sold over 500.000 singles'.

    Motown Revue - Wigan 1965

    I saw the show in the ABC Chester. There were so few there that the compere came out and asked those in the cheap seats at the back (me and my mate) to move to the front and clap our hands! The show was great and every artist gave their all. Fancy Martha Reeves kicking off with Nowhere To Run. Stevie Wonder did a duet with his manager at the time, Clarence Paul. The Miracles included Claudette and the highlight for me was Smokey on his knees singing Ooh Baby Baby. Soul Sam then known as Martin Barnfather was at the show with mates whom I also knew and they gave us a lift home as my mate and I had no money to pay for a train/bus!

    UK Stax/Volt Revue, March-April 1967

    Further to London2013 post, I have just seen your post too. I was at The Otis Redding Show at The Empire, Liverpool. The Stax/Volt show in all but name. A whole 7/6 to get in! I still have the programme and the flyer that was sent with the tickets which in effect was a mini poster for the show. I can send you scans if you are interested.
  14. Me again. After last post I remembered I have the 4CD Sue Records Story issued on EMI about 20 years. A great compilation with a superb booklet containing info, photos and label discgraphies. Sure enough it had One More Hurt on there and it is the Demo version with Marjorie's voice upfront! What is even better is that Mike Terry's bass sax is up there too. Heaven!
