  • Keith mansfield "soul thing"

    Firstly, I'm come clean. I'm a "Soul Thing" nerd. I thought I had all the versions, but whilst DJing last night my co-DJ spun the track off Keith Mansfield's "All You Need Is..." LP - has anyone else noticed that the versions on the mono and stereo LPs are quite different? The stereo version features totally different Hawkshaw piano - it's like 2 piano parts played together instead of the single note version????

    Anyway, can anyone add anything to this Soul Thing discography:

    Keith Mansfield - All You Need Is LP.... (feat. mono version)
    Keith Mansfield - All You Need Is LP.... (feat. stereo version)
    Keith Mansfield - Soul Thing (7" - same as mono LP)
    KPM - Flamboyant Themes 2 LP (as Funky Fanfare)
    KPM - Beat Incidental LP (as Funky Fanfare - different take)
    Paul Raven (aka Gary Glitter) - Soul Thing (2 x 7" pressings)
    James Royal - Call My Name LP (as House Of Jack)
    James Royal - House Of Jack 7" (?)
    Tony Newman - Soul Thing (2 x 7" Decca pressings)
    Tony Newman - Soul Thing (7" US Parrot - shorter than UK issue)
    Arzachel - same (as Queen Street Gang)

    Then there's that Carnaby Street Pop Orchestra thing (which I presume is the FlamboyantThemes version). Are there any other versions I don't know of???

    I think I need help...

      You are suffering from a classic case of Soulthingitis. There is no cure, but covering yourself with silver foil to stop the Stereo Gold LPs from talking to you can help...

        Silver foil, eh? I&#39;m going one step further and using the covers of Hammond Gold - which are strangely bronze, but then Hammond Bronze doesn&#39;t have quite the same ring.

        Thanks for the tip&#33;

          I&#39;ve got a version on a US high school LP, I&#39;ll dig it out.

            Sorry to add to your confusion but the Carnaby St pop orchestra and choir version is different on the cd re-release (courtesy of Recurr records) to that of the original vinyl lp, by way of a longer middle section. I guess this may have something to do with the session master tapes rather than any editing. But then you seem to have it quite bad already&#33; .

              Jeez, I thought I had it bad. Now I&#39;ll have to buy &#39;All You Need Is...&#39; and the Parrot 45. I *think* there&#39;s also a nineties cover by a west coast retro-psyche group, inspired by the Queen Street Gang, but I&#39;ll have to do some googling and find it again.

              Which version of Keith&#39;s is the Pronit?

                Nope, can&#39;t find it. It was a while ago and I no longer have the emails either, so I may have been confusing it with Arzachel but there&#39;s a nagging doubt that my memory is right...

                  Almost forgot, Beck used to play this live so that could explain the nineties version...

                  Thanks for your help chaps, one day I will be cured&#33;

                      Quite probably - the original Carnaby issue used a sub-master, with a little bit of distortion on the brass. Recur went to the original masters where possible, though they had to use the sub-master for a couple of tracks - I think &#39;Dr Jekyll and Hyde Park&#39; is one, as the KPM mono version has a proper ending rather than a fade.
