A: Parley-Voo March
B: Sierra Sunrise
|The label is from the 78. Shouldn't be on here.|

|The Blue Notes|
A: Get Out
B: You May Not Love Me
|This is actually a bootleg put out for the Northern Soul scene. Would probably have pre-dated the UK Route issue from May 1975.|

A: Jam Up Twist
B: Wish I Had Never
|It's the same mix, but only with the shout of "Twist" overdubbed just after the intro. But I agree - perhaps it shouldn't be linked to the 1954 release, given that they're two different issues with different cat numbers.|

A: Got To Find A Way
B: Lover's Prayer
|Bertsqui is right. The skip occurs in the second break at 1:55 in the video of the UK demo, but it is quite a neat skip so not really surprising that some people wouldn't notice it.|
I had one of these in the 90s, and can definitely say that there IS a skip of about 1 rev. I don't know if this was put right before it was released though.

A: No Stranger To Love (Vocal)
B: No Stranger To Love (Instrumental)
|Original copies of this are extremely rare indeed, with probably less than a dozen copies known. It was given a 2nd issue around 1990, which is believed to be a legal 2nd issue by the label owner, following demand on the Modern/Northern Soul dancefloors.|
The best way to tell the two issues apart is that the original is a 'flat-edged' pressing. The 2nd issue has a 'bevelled edge' and becomes translucent when held up to the light.
Price difference between the two? Well, a 2nd issue can be found for around £20, but the original would certainly fetch well into four-figures at auction.
