Another one for the turntable these are two excellent Hillbilly tracks although i must admit i never heard of the guy before now.Probably the earliest UK 45 in my collection.

Giving this a spin this morning and i just noticed that my copy of this has issued in 1973 etched in the dead wax area.When did all these repros start.

Quite a lot of the Irish London 45s had the Made In England blackened out but usually they would have Pressed in Eire further down the label see my Del Shannon Irish 45s for examples .For whatever reason the Decca group of labels excluding the Coral label always used the Made In Eire while the EMI group of labels had Made In Ireland or the correct title Made In The Republic Of Ireland on labels.This record entered the Irish charts on the 16th of June 1960 spending 13 weeks on the charts and topping the charts for 5 weeks.This was his one and only chart hit here in Ireland.

!00% Irish i am not aware of any UK Dolphin with this type of label.These came way after Dolphin ceased using the Black label. The ( P) is usually a dead giveaway on Irish releases.

The Council Collective

A: Soul Deep (Part 1)
B: Soul Deep (Part 2)
Quite a few Style Council Irish pressed 45s came with the Picture Sleeves it was very haphazard back in the 80s.Companys such as EMI and Polydor would put the records in the Green EMI or Red Polydor sleeves and then include some PSs with the order.It was then up to the shops if they wanted to put the records in the Picture Sleeves.I know for a fact a lot of shops never bothered as we were not used to having PSs.How do i know this well when my local record shop closed in the 90s the owner God bless him mentioned that he had a hundred or so unused PSs out the back and they are mine if i want them.Naturally i took the lot and ended up with multiple PSs by the likes of The Style Council Kate Bush Big Country Bronski Beat A Ha and Bowie.With the odd exception all our Picture Sleeves came from the UK.
