    At first I bought records, then I started to collect records; now I merely accumulate records.

      ?

      "Versatility –Tequila Madness –No idea what this is…on President from 1975"

      A dodgy moog cover of "Tequila", last time I checked.

      It's not bad - dependent on your tolerance for synthy fromage (mine is evidently rather high . . .)

          Were the Action EP's for sale at Utrecht?

          It's kind of thrown a spanner in the works as far as buying French 45's.

          I just saw two pic sleeve copies of The State Of Mickey & Tommy 45 reasonably priced and instantly thought 'Ah they must have found a load of them too'

          But maybe not. Who Knows?

          Someone should compile a list

            Yep...that covered it as Hot Summer Girls

            The Messengers song?
            Yes, but no...On the Ohio Express version (that predates the Messengers) the song is credited to Ritchie Cordell, his credit disapeared when it came to The Messengers release. The Messengers version wins it in my book

              Didn't see any Action EPs. The stuff is around, but is being released slowly...There was also French copies of the Masters Apprentices...so much more. The main stuff -70s singles show up at 3-4 euros a shot now
