  1. I admire your honesty. It wouldn't be the first time memories get obscured with time. OK, back to square 1...... Ian
  2. Yep. I hear stuff I've not heard before most weeks. There's always a surprise. Had one today in fact. Ian D
  3. Did you actually play the 'B' side and, if so, what's it like? Ian D
  4. It's funny I had a convo about this last night with a well-known dealer, He was surprised I asked the question as he thought it was an obvious dummy-up. I told him that I hadn't gone into forensics on the label but it was more that whoever mocked it up obviously had some detail about the supposed 'B' side since the writing credit tallies with Ray Dahrouge's memories. So it's just interesting. My dealer friend senses a scam whereas I'm pretty intrigued by it all. I wouldn't have particularly thought about it but I bumped into the B side scan only recently, even though it's been around since Mic
  5. Yep. Andy Lett contacted him as a result of the previous S.S. thread which I've just re-read. The 'B' side song was written by his wife under her maiden name, Michelle White:- "ANDY, AFTER I MADE DEAL WITH G.S.F PRES. LARRY NEWTON (FORMER PRES. OF A B C PARAMOUNT REC. RAY CHARLES, CURTIS MAYFIELD ,& IMPRESSIONS, ARTISTS, ETC. ) I WENT HOME & WROTE B SIDE WITH MY WIFE MICHELE. I DON'T RECALL TITLE OR IF IT WAS EVER ON A RECORD. RELEASE". So, whether the scans are fake or not, the 'B' side info on the scan would seem to concurr with Ray Dahrouge's memory. That means that whoeve
  6. I've just done a cursory search of the BMI and ASCAP databases and can't turn up anything on the song. That scan is not so clear on the writer. Is it Bill White? Either way I'm not getting a hit on anything......... Ian D
  7. Does it exist? If so, has anyone heard it? If it doesn't exist then someone went to a lot of trouble mocking up a 'B' side! Ian D
  8. Bear in mind that the album was compiled in 1974 and many subsequent discoveries were discovered long after that. There was no internet and Stax (at that time) was probably the last label that anyone would expect to find much Northern Soul compared to most. Access to many of the lesser-know releases was confined to the relatively small network of dealers back then. Wasn't easy. The Stax Southern Funk volume was a breeze to compile compared to the Northern one. Ian D Ian
  9. I've been asked if I want one for Xmas and figured, yep, a portable record player could be handy. My records are mostly mint so I need one that won't wreck 'em, preferably in black with built in speakers. I quite like the look of this but does anyone have any recommendations?
  10. I did hear about this around 3 weeks ago but was waiting for some kind of official confirmation. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/24/arts/music/sterling-magee-dead-coronavirus.html?fbclid=IwAR0xoSDUlzDgHGLuZ3DE2YwAO3jmlTKAPerBUwxJHt6DFBd_f36BDWn4pek#:~:text=Sterling Magee%2C who played a,He was 84
  11. Not On Discogs Sale This is a pile of U.S. 7" stuff that I haven't ever bothered listing because they're not on Discogs and haven't been since 2007, which is interesting in itself. So most of these are not common records for sure. There may be some collection stuff or gap-fillers here, so I thought I'd throw 'em out there in case anyone's interested. All Near Mint. P&P £3.00 + £1.00 for each additional record. Please PM me if interested in anything. Thanks for looking. "In The Mood (To Groove)" - Aurra Dream Promo £10.00 "Anything (You Want)" - Benidito & Lori
