    arnie j reacted to tlscapital in Joe Simon On Irral - BOOT?   
    None of them are bootlegs. Just different pressing plants. It was a "common & cheap" record some 20 years back so it must have had some action originally. There's even a blue and black label press...

    arnie j reacted to Mal C in ** Musette Records **   
    This thread ends Sunday, confined to the archives, but before that happens it good to finish on a high, so having spoken to Angelo who did the Musette review on Dave Rimmer's site all this week, I can offer these tantalizing tit bits:

    ------------

    MR-112 – June Jackson - You're Welcome /Bottoms Up 


    Someone a few months ago was selling the Imperial Records single on "You're Welcome," and it was a promotional single (black on the left hand side with color logo and light brown for the rest of the label), it was definitely Imperial/Liberty and the artist, production credits remained the same, with the exception of the Imperial single catalogue number. Needless to say, this blew me away when I saw it, as I wondered if there were any other singles Imperial and/or Liberty might have picked up for national release.

    Green Musette Label Lenni/Lennie Groves singles

    The green label; this was the original label version of the Lenni/Lennie Groves singles, light green with black print; in fact, this was the only time I have seen a green Musette release. A collector in my hometown of San Diego just found the "Sweet Sixteen" on the green label.

    All The Musette Best,

    ------------

    What can you say? June Jackson - your welcome got a promo on Liberty / imperial, thats up there with the Ivories on Wand, and Green label Mustte releases, I must be a tad sad, but thats some of the most exciting collecting stuff I've heard in years...

    Has anyone thought about submitting pictures like that to Hinckley Council or whoever......or the Hinckley Times newspaper?  It's a heritage thing isn't it, with the centre being demolished!

    Twas the time after Wigan had closed and was thinking that it was the end of NS and then Hinkley Leisure Centre came along, a massive sports hall. Great memories of the Ric Tic revue, Edwin mingling and dancing with the crowd,
    Lou Ragland walking past, knew it was him because he'd got his name on his guitar strap
    Met Curtis Mayfield there on one occassion, what a lovely fellow, although at the time I didn't think much of his stage show about 2 months later it sort of hit me with a delayed action just how good he had been.
    When it stopped, so did I moving more onto the House scene, still kept collecting Soul records though
    Shame they are pulling it down but nothing lasts forever eh!

    arnie j reacted to modernsoulsucks in EARL WHITE JR ON EBAY   
    Letting members know that the site is taking no further action on this matter at this time.
    His explanation is here for all to see and members can come to their own conclusions as to future sales, either on EBay or here.
    I do have a character reference of sorts from Butch who has allowed me to post it up.
    Ive done a few trades with him in the past and he always seemed honest and straightforward.  I know he sometimes lives in Osaka, Japan and then moves to France for a few months of the year.
    I've had no evidence to link him with Mehdi Dizerens other than the original MR. SOUL auction under same user name as this auction but he has denied any part in that scam.
    Obviously if I get any more relevant information in I will look at this again. Or if his name is linked with sales of boots as originals in the future.
    Advised him to answer Swifty's question regarding a refund on the completed sale of Innersection for $700.
    It would also be illuminating to know how MR. SOUL appeared on an auction under his name.

    arnie j reacted to cover-up in Don Gardner - My Baby Likes to Boogaloo (Tru-Glo-Town)   
    "Pretty boring cut with no real hooks" - no real hooks? Are you joking? That's like saying "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones doesn't have a hook. The whole track is one monster five note hook on repeat. Musically you could doubt its credentials, but in this case hook + energy = stormer. Maybe not one for home listening...

    We're testing the water with these two, hopefully they'll sell well (initial response is very good) and we can expand into all areas of soul balladry. It'll be down to sales in the end.
     
    Thanks for the positive comments.

    arnie j reacted to Rick Cooper in Stax on Mastermind BBC2 Friday 5th Feb 8pm   
    A contestant on Mastermind has chosen to answer questions on Stax Records for their specialist subject. If it's anything like the Philly Soul questions last year they shouldn't be too hard. Probably most people should get them all but it's a lot easier sat at home instead of in the black chair. Don't expect the existence or not of the Sandra Wright LP will be one of the questions.

    arnie j reacted to Derek Pearson in Values please?   
    Bit of interesting background info me thinks.
    The Abstract Reality were in fact Michael Campbell and Raymond Monette the writers of the songs.
    As Michael and Raymond they cut the northern classic “Man Without A Woman” on RCA 47-9244 and released the same month as the Sport 45.
    They also recorded “If Only You Knew” as Mike and Ray on the Detroit based Giant (G-706) label in 1966.

    Just wanted to chip into this on 'Bill Bush' to set the record straight.
    In 2004 I tracked Bill down through the local paper, the rest is history and we became friends up to his untimely death in 2014. Over the years I sold several copies of his single I'm Waiting with profits going to Bill. He had at the time a very limited stock of his single which had been in the attic in the pressing plant box for 40 years, this was where the copies came from that I have sold. Anyone who has bought a copy of this single from Bill through me can be assured it is an original and from the artists own stock, and your details will remain confidential.

    Bill's copies do not have a RONN /Jewel/Paula sleeve as it was never properly released, but this has been added legitimately by major record retailers on a couple of occasions, and by me on one occasion as it was signed by Bill.
    On the original, the matrix reads, in this order anti-clockwise, TM2399 handwritten in the 3rd band of the run-out, then R-17 and SL-1311 - position varies on original copies. It is pressed onto vinyl and has a bevelled edge running down to the centre hole. It remains 'rare soul' in every sense and I'll do my best to keep it that way, for Bill.
    I hope that helps to address some concerns about this record - a copy will be auctioned on eBay starting Monday 4 April 2016 to assist with school trip to Europe for his grandson.

    Oh the irony of it all.  This is an Ian Levine production LOL, he recorded her on a whole album of remakes in 1999 for Marathon Media, the people who bootlegged it obviously ripped it off youtube thinking it was the original version.  Comedy gold, Ian Levine being bootlegged, on the Ian Levine bootleg thread.
