    The Herbie Mann's wicked, but only if you pitch it down to minus 8 (I find it far too fast at its regular tempo). It came out on Atlantic on the B-side of Superman. I didn't even know it came out on Patrick's label. I'd say it was rare. (Which label: P&P?)

    I've also had La Famille for a while and been playing it a lot. It's ace. Don't know anything about it, though (I think it's a Uk prod.). There's also another good reggae cover in a similar vein, a version of Neil Young's Only Love Can Break Your Heart. Can't remember the artist name offhand.

        The La Famille was an often requested track around my way when it came out. Not sure if it was a UK production, but the band was an 7-8 piece.

        The track also got compiled on Streetsounds 5.

          Oh, I forgot about the Sweet Cream (nice cover on that one&#33. Typical late period disco for the most part, though there's one pretty good track: Do A Dance For Love. It's a one-tracker, though, and not rare either. I nabbed mine in Scope in Grimsby.

            It must be a two tracker - the one I love off that LP is the classy "You Brought Joy".

              Yeah, me too Bill ! Wonder why so many of those turned up in the UK on Shadybrook (Is there not a track on there called "Skunk Funk" ? Reason i bought it and what a dissapointment &#33

              Why wasn't it Kellee Pattersons ST LP instead of that Turn on the lights LP, eh !? "Give it up ! ain't no use................."

                Ahh, Grimsby. Good charities up there eh?

                I went up a couple of months ago just to see what the place was like. Never seen so many chippies in one place, sadly I'm trying to eat healthily so, though the place smelt fab, I had to resist!

                Nothing in the line of actual record shops from what I could see, on or two junk shops. But there's a bunch of charities in the first part of town and then there's that big old High Street thing that leads towards the docks where there's a ton of charity shops. I don't think I've ever been in such a relatively small town with so many charities! Most of 'em were guff like, but I managed to get three copies of Captain Noah and then all the usual charity suspects (Power & the Glory, New Freedom Singers, Klaus, Hansi, Hot Hits 10 etc etc).

                A strange place and a definite improvement on Doncaster!

                Not one attractive girly though. Not one.

                PS Next time, I'll go to Cleethorpes!!

                  Ben, it's great for charities, totally awesome but you have to make regular jaunts. Last time I was up it was the worst it's ever been but I still found a few bits. I've built my soul collection in Grimsby charity shops.

                  There's one proper shop. It's just next to the Precinct (I think it's called Haven Mill nowadays).

                  It's this one:

                  Freeman Street (the road that leads up the the Docks) is great, that's the main spot. But if you got up to Cleethorpes (it's a quick bus ride), go to St. Peter's Avenue, that's where most of the charities are, but there are also two in Seaview Street, which is just off the sea front.

                  The reason there aren't any nice girls is because we come up once a year and harvest them. They all live in London.

                  Towny: Oh, if only it was Kellee Paterson! You wish.
