  1. I'm sure it was, I just don't think he was the first person to play it on the mod scene.
  2. I missed the last one because there was no way I was queuing up with all those who had hardly ever been. I stuck to drinks with the crew in Soul Jazz Records upstairs!
  3. It was hammered on the Mod Scene from 88 off reissue
  4. I've just looked through my list and Morgan's and I think very few if any. There were unreleased tracks, but none of them seem to have been scheduled as singles. There was also a surprisingly low number of unreleased tracks considering the overall size of the catalogue. I think this was because the label recorded album projects, and just recorded enough tracks for a release. I suppose the most famous unreleased project was Joe Bataan's final album that resulted in the mono / promo single of Latin Soul Square Dance. I had a TP of a double sided single, with 'Call Me' on the
  5. For Uptite I don't think so. It was pretty specifically designed as an outlet to get Fania's more soul recordings onto R&B radio, which ignored Fania as a latin label. Most of the titles appeared on Fania albums at the same time.
  6. Hi Morgan, when I was working for Fania, I compiled a pretty comprehensive 45 discography. There are a few gaps pre-66, but I feel they might be due to their peculiar early numbering system. I think Uptite ran to 24 records and they are all listed on discogs. It's worth noting that #1 in that numbering series appeared on a Fania label.
  7. Managers, artist representatives etc. However even if there was no one, it wouldn't excuse these people getting away with this, as they are ripping of artists who do get paid royalties, songwriters who are doing the same, and stopping labels that do it properly from releasing these records
  8. Alan was going to say that it might actually have been you I heard playing it back then, but I'm glad I wasn't mistaken as to the timescale.
  9. I was first played this by Andy Hynd in the mid-80s, so I think this was being played on the mod scene back then. T
  10. I saw those and found them odd. From where I was sitting - up near the organ - he sounded great. However for me seeing Steve and Booker on stage together and properly interacting made my day. That's the best live Green Onions I've seen with the two of them on stage, in the 20 years or so in which I've seen them on stage.
  11. Georgie's cover of Point Of No Return was based on Louis Jordan's. He also recorded a Jack Ashford composition 'For Love The Petals Fall', which he heard Jack perform at soundcheck for the first Motown Tour of the UK. He asked Jack about it and is as far as we can work out the only person to have recorded it.
  12. The second single was released January 1975, Wounded Woman was 1974. So David the album was recorded by then. Still no paperwork at Stax to suggest that anything but singles deals were done for David's productions.
