damn my expensive taste!.. spent two days excited b'cos I'd found a new tune I didn't know but loved

upon hearing (well it's new to me anyway!)..

Does anyone know anything about this tune? why haven't I heard it before?..

Is £50 a good price, usual questions etc...

re-issued a couple of years ago so should be available for around £10. £50 seems a bit on the high side for an original, one on musicstack for £35, you might check out the frankie valli version which is very good too

It was big on the Mod scene a few years back and my mate paid £80 for a copy.

am very surprised that there's anyone into 60s music that hasn't heard it! booted several times, and on loads of compilations. one of the very best UK soul records IMO, incredible track even though i've heard it far too often

Use to pick these & Flirtations (Heartache) up for 50 pence a pop 5 - 10 years ago at Record Fairs, they seemed to have dried up a bit now, well at that price they have anyway.

It's also on the Decca album 'World of hits - Vol 3', superb tune & i'd personally be more than happy to hear it played at an NS do, really nice record to dance to!

Thanks for that. I didn't know I had it on vinyl. It's a big tune in retro clubs which is what you have when there's not enough mods to support a mod night. The popular Frankie Valli remix meant other versions were dug out

I've got that, love the tune! Have only ever heard it played when Ganche plays it though! Oh & i was at a company ball in April & the DJ played it there! :thumbsup: The DJ was Norman J though & after googling his playlist it's in his top 20!

C'mon Jayne, give us a clue on the 6 DJ's that don't know this track, not for one minute disputing your word but really find this hard to believe!!!!!! :thumbsup:

Unless they are all under 30 :thumbsup:

This got in the lower reaches of the Top 40 so why it should cost anything over £25 is a bit of a mystery - can clearly remember hearing it on radio 1 when I was about 8. Great record though.

here's their other releases:

am trying to find an article or interview i read about them, as usual they were messed about by UK record companies, hence the release of novelty stuff like 'Baked Jam Roll In Your Eye'...

Ive had my copy since I was about 14 - Its got the center dinked and its a has a little crackle at the start - and I still love it - I have always kept it!

It was a big tune in the 80s on the Mod scene - still brings the 80s back for me when I play it !

Yes Pete, it was played extensively at the time - it was one of those "turntable hits" that everyone said was going to be a smash (pop pickers :thumbsup: !)....and no one could understand why it wasn't.

I don't think that's really a novelty record apart from the daft lyrics and title, it's a typical period pyschedelic/whimsy/toytown pop record. They did a great version of "Soul Sauce" though. And a cover of "I'll Always Love You"

Not a chance!.. nearly asked you actually.. have you got one?.. you could play it at Bury in june!... :P

One of them is of course under 30... and we'll let him off as he's virtually gone over to the 'dark side' playing all that modun soul..

and that's all you're getting..

Jayne, playing this out is the equivalent to playing Theres A Ghost In My House or Out On The Floor. Not that there's anything wrong with them mind...

funnily enough it was Radio 2 where I first heard it. Mark Lamarr played it on saturday night. I was just getting out of the car and I switched the radio back on. It's rare that a tune keeps me sat in the car at 2am on a sunday morning when I'm out on my own but glad it did.

I care not, it's a million times better....we'll let DJ's off for playing this at Bury..especially if I request it and they dont play it on a re-release!. :g:

It would certainly qualify to be played in Andre Minta's room upstairs too. :huh:

ermmm.. I'm working on the basis that this one made me keep the radio on and stayed in my head - although I dont mind either of the other two, they certainly didn't have the same effect when I first heard them...

yep, nothing to do with production or sound of the record, how I'm rating records these days depends on the effects it has on me upon first hearing it! (very technical or what! lol) :huh:

I guess it's impossible to say one record's better than another because when you start bringing sentiments and memories into it, certain records

mean the world to you.

Agreed, it's a stunning British Soul version.

Also worth checking out Timebox's version of "I'll always love you" got mine for £10 about 5 years ago.

now that doesn't surprise me because most of the stuff I like seems to have been played at Rotherham or Clifton Hall.... I've had comp tapes that people have done for me of tunes that I'm told were sounds from these venue's and I reckon I'd have really like both places.. :huh:

Jayne.x.

I play regularly at a 'local' soul and motown night, and love doing so, and would have no problem giving 'beggin' a play alongside the likes of 'breaking down the walls of heartache' 'band of gold' 'rescue me' 'shake a tail feather' etc all great tunes by the way, and all who attend have a great time,

Equally i wouldn't expect to hear 'beggin' at any upfront, rare, cutting edge type of event,

Now where it 'fits' in between is down to the opinion of the person playing the tunes, which is probably why you havn't heard it before Jayne,

And before anybody picks holes in any of the tunes i have randomly mentioned ....... it's just an opinion :huh:
