  • Georgie fame 45

    Hi everyone,

    I picked up a Georgie Fame 45 recently. It features BONNIE E CLYDE b/w TRY MY WORLD. He sings in italian on the BONNIE E CLYDE song and the single is an italian pressing on CBS (orange label). Is this rare?

    Cheers,
    David S
    God bless Fatso.

    Wouldn't have thought so, "Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde" was a number 1 hit in the UK. Not sure how it fared in Italy but it was fairly common for artists to do European language versions of their tunes in the 60s...

        The UK version of Bonnie & Clyde (or at least my one) is backed with 'Walk the dog' - very nice liddle hammond led groover which gets the occasional spin.

          And the UK ish of 'Try My World' features the funky vocal shaker 'No Thanks' on the flip..

            it's 'Beware of the Dog' btw, and it's on both UK and US issues. it's pretty good, but even better IMO is 'El Bandido' which is the b-side of 'Getaway'

                "No Thanks" is one of his best in my book. I'm partial to "Preach and Teach" and "In the Meantime" as well.

                What's the going rate for a copy of "Somebody Stole My Thunder"? And was that issued as an LP cut as well? I believe it's on a soundtrack or something?? Might be my best bet in the States....

                  It's on 'Seventh Son' LP in it's full length glory (the 45 is an edit) - you can also get it very cheap on a best of called 'Bonnie & Clyde' on Embassy. As for the going rate of the OG 45 - was hovering aroung the £100 but not seen one for a while. YOu can get a Stardust reiss for £4 though

                    Yes, it featured on the OST of the 1970 film of the apparently "erotic" (according to Jonny Trunk's site, although it's only a 15 certificate, so in Alan Partridge's inimitable words "it's not hardcore super-sex&quot Joe Orton's play 'Entertaining Mr Sloane', featuring Beryl Reid. Phwoar!

                    No OST release that I am aware of.

                      That's actually the A side of the 45.

                        Anyone know anything about a 70s release by Mr Fame called "Daylight"? I've heard that it is good.

                        Oh, and the film version of "Entertaining Mr Sloane" is dreadful.
