The Flamin' Groovies

A: Shake Some Action
B: Teenage Confidential
....now that's, I say that's the version I know the best, although the mix on the posting by solarbrother sounds a bit thin, maybe the mono version is ballsier.......

Do I hear some cow bell in there as well....?

Don Gibson

A: I Think It's Best (To Forget Me)
B: Sea Of Heartbreak
The recent scan posted by neil86 would pre-date the other Side B scan issue, because of the use on Side B of "Copyright Control" to handle royalties revenues, until a firm publisher was appointed/established.

The original US issue (A+B sides swapped), and "Sea Of Heartbreak" was published by Shapiro-Bernstein & Co., Inc. an ASCAP affiliate whereas the Side B was published by Acuff-Rose, which was BMI affiliated.

Shapiro Bernstein was used on the UK issue of "Sea Of Heartbreak", but as apparent here Wallaby Music (Chappell) was appointed a while later, overseen by the giant Chappell Music, based in London, that reached worldwide for their publishing interests.

Marvin Gaye

A: Baby Don't You Do It
B: Walk On The Wild Side
This real fine A Side never got a release in the UK at time of issue, save as a track on the very first EP of the Tamla-Motown label imprint in UK, released 19th March 1965.TME 2001

I did own a copy of the EP, bought brand new as a cheapie, early 1966 I'm guessing, but sold it around eight years ago for £70 odd pounds......what was I thinking?

Maxine Brown

A: I've Got A Lot Of Love Left In Me

Maxine Brown And Chuck Jackson

B: Hold On (I'm Comin')
As the only owner of this record (so far), I've been trying to track down a video of Side A to post by Maxine, and can only find it on Spotify. It's a great number with Maxine on top form, that was apparently not released in US coupled with "Hold On (I'm Comin')" WND 1148, and information seems scant.

I did find two other versions of the same ballad, both fairly "country", one by Gary Edwards & The Embers, a regional hit out of Louisville, KY in July 1968 (got to #8 in Louisville), it is posted at F-1009. The song is the same but the songwriters differ from that shown above, Killen. I was assuming it was Buddy Killen, of Joe Tex association, but drew a blank. I can now confirm that the writers of Side A are actually John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins. (as shown on a UK compilation LP)

There was also a C+W version of the same song by Peggy Little on Dot Records, complete with tremulous vocal and lotsa pedal steel, but Maxine gets my vote, naturally......

Gary Edwards And The Embers

A: I've Got A Lot Of Love Left In Me
B: Sherry My Love
Side A also covered in 1966/1967 by Maxine Brown 7N 25410, but the songwriting credit is Killen, (Buddy Killen ?)

The songwriting credits of John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins are correct.
