Just have to tell this. In 1965 a club/discotheque called The Gaslash opened in Sydney. I was there on the first night and nothing was happening because of power supply problems. Some musicians were standing there with this cute mod chick. This leering lout (me) tried to pick her up with the really dumb "give us a kiss" line. She (Lynn Randell) actually gave me a quick peck on the cheek before leaving with the musicians. Shortly after, the rest of us (no more than a dozen would-be patrons) were evicted too. Lynn Randell went on to become something of a star and I continued as a sad little man.Comment by Felonious:
For those who make lists, a list of csm export titles might be neat to see.Comment by Felonious:
To all intents and purposes this is a UK release and at least an export issue. As stated underneath it's Northern Soul favourite and rather than bootleg it, a UK resident ordered 500 copies from the States. Columbia Special Products pressed them up, boxed them and sent them to the UK.
" Ciao Baby " is the official B side of this record and a great song with a wonderful flowing melody set to a surging arrangement. It was a Top 10 hit in Australia in 1967 for Liverpool-born Lynn Randell who was living there at the time. Unfortunately the record bombed in the U.K. and in the States. Lynn Randell was plagued with drug problems and committed suicide in Melbourne on 8 June 2007 aged 57.
I have this same record with another Title and Picture sleeve (Songs of Christmas). The labels have the same ZTV numbers, but the sleeve has no CSP number listed. It's a promotional item for opening a Christmas club. Should I add it as a separate record (with the ZTV numbers), or just scan the variant labels and sleeve here?
