    Most Bizarrely Pressed Record I've Ever Seen

    I have that one too, but on mine labels are the wrong way around. Don't know it they were all done like that.

    Different songs, but some of the lyrics are the same

    Here's two from Immediate . . . "Everybody's gonna say that everything is alright. If they don't then boy there's gonna be a fight" (PP Arnold) . . . and a slight variation . . . "Everybody wants to know that everything is alright. I guess they thought by now we'd had a great big fight" (Chris Farlowe / Dee Dee Warwick - We're Doing Fine) Cheers Mick

    Different songs, but some of the lyrics are the same

    I'll start with this one . . . "There's something inside of me that tells me" is the opening line to both sides of Gary Sole - Holdin' On / Soul Light Touch
  4. Here's one to think about. Two (or more) different songs that use either the same unique phrases, or a very minor variation. They could be by the same artist, but don't have to be. They could also be the A and B side of a release, or they coulld just be from the same company and / or songwriters. Again, the don't have to be. Just post the line, and the two (or more) different song titles that use the line. Obviously there's tons of songs that use very common short phrases (eg. "I love you") so no need to bother with that kind of thing. I'm thinking of much longer phrases. I've got a couple that spring to mind, but that's all I can think of. There must be quite a few. Cheers Mick

    EXCITERS - BLOWING UP MY MIND Mr Manships auction!

    I assumed it was reissued for us in UK - a couple of years later RCA did the range of UK biggies (Paul Anka / Roy Hamilton / Laura Greene / Michael & Raymond / Dean Courtney etc. etc.)

    EXCITERS - BLOWING UP MY MIND Mr Manships auction!

    I never saw the stock copy of 9723 until the nineties. Mid seventies there were loads of orange 1035, and quite a few yellow 9723 demos, but never an orange 9723 It may be different now, but back then it was probably the rarest. Cheers Mick

    Label background overprinted and used by multiple labels

    I haven't seen that one. I think in this case NU just copies the old well used design (with a few changes) for a new release. There is a thread on here from a couple of years ago covering this where loads of variations have been posted, but I can't find it at the moment. Cheers Mick

    Still looking for 1138 Detroit, and the first one on AE7 1131 (IF IT EXISTS) Cheers

    Let's Clean Up The Ghetto - USA City Edits

    Still looking for two myself, if you have them ? . . . Detroit AE7 1138 ??? AE7 1131 (I don't know the city, but it's the start of the series, so it must exist - They wouldn't have started with 1132) Cheers Mick

    Most Miserable Records Ever

    Probably only miserable if you listen to it, as the jolly uptempo rhythm can make you ignore the lyrics. Cheers Mick

    Paris - Sleepless Nights

    What interesting vinyl do you have ?

    I don't own this, but here's an Orange Aluminium Acetate (it's been on on eBay for years) I've never seen anything like this before. Cheers Mick

    The Younghearts : Little Togetherness

    Yes, it is longer on the Soultown release, but that is a different release, sometime later. There are so many Canterbury variants of the original Delta, all with slightly different matrix numbers, it's almost impossible to document them, as "new" variations are turning up even now (eg. RNS had a three word titled variation only a couple of months ago, and only by playing the soundclip, could you tell. Same applies to the two word variation in this post. One other thing to mention, the timings printed on the labels are no guide whatsoever, for example, the Tempos variation says 3:15 or thereabouts, but is just the normal length song. As far as I know, there is no mystery or variation for later releases on Soultown (clearly a longer version - again ignore printed time), or Zea (Kings Of Hearts, which reverted back to the short version. Someone over on Facebook did compare the KOH to a standard short Canterbury and said it was a couple of seconds longer (or shorter?), but if that's so, it'll just be down to the fade out.
