    Love Sitars - 'Paint It Black' on Soul Galore

    anyone know this? is it really The Folkswingers' version?

    It's the Lord Sitar version, I think. Lord Sitar was somebody like Big Jim Sullivan or one of those guys.

                yeah, i know about Soul Galore, got some nice instros on the label. was assuming in this case that it was just a bootleg of an existing track

                talking of Ian Levine, picked up what i assumed was a reissue of Sidney Barnes 'I Hurt On the Other Side', only saw the 'produced by Ian Levine' credit when i got home. it's terrible! sounds like a re-recording, but with an awful 4/4 house-ish bass drum stuck under it. right waste of two quid that was...

                  hes a nitemare hes done several LPs/ tracks of classic soul choons but updated them with nasty 80s synths n stuff...but back in the day he had the biggest/ only usa 45 collection and in the early days of northern soul MOST the tunes came of him!!

                  do you know that sid barnes tune on bluestone called i fink 'new york city' im gonna be a big moviestar, what a tune wished i aint sold mine, jazzy soul

                    I dunno, just from memory. I think I might have got it mixed up with "Black is Black".

                    I think it was Simon Soussan behind the Soul Galore label, not Levine. Maybe it's one of his (Soussan's) home made efforts.

                        Yeah... I know it, It's my auction!

                        Like It says in the description Im not sure of the origin of the tune, It's a boot that you'll find a many northern do's & was put out in the 70's i'd guess.
                        Pretty sure it aint Lord Sitar, no paint int Black on the Columbia LP, & always thought it was a US version covered up.

                        I know Soul Galore 45's are mostly all UK boots, but thought that it was a bonified lable in the USA. (Ive got a 45 by the Performers & that anit a boot, Im sure?

                            Hi  

                            There is a version of 'Paint it black' by Lord Sitar, its only on a Columbia US single and is the B side to 'Black is Black'.

                            Bought mine from 'Intoxica' some time ago for a nominal fee ( some thing of a rarity in this shop), I know they had a large number of multiple copies. Its a painfully fast track so may have been popular on the northern scene.

                            Hope this helps
