NEW EXCITING UPDATE!
Just released by UMG as a limited edition 7" for another box set............
and c/w The Originals 'Suspicion) comes Tamla Motown 534 542 7 sadly SH only has a unique back to '65 Tangerene/Orange UK die-cut card sleeve but with the logos of the range of Motown's USA labels inbetween the stars really striking and different...........
But the wait long wait is now over Frank's 'guide vocal demo' is finally released 7" UK wise in STEREO! yes Stereo
blow's your head off. Yeah keep the messed up green sleeve barcoded copy for Chris Cark's vocal over the incredulous backing cut by the Funk Brothers.
This prerssing (done by Optimal in Germany sadly undinked and with a traditional 4p OC) is the only release you will ever need to play.....It kicks and is to die for you can hear everything vibes brass keyboards the works!
A massive thank you to UMG for 99.9% getting this right ( we can allow the SH solid centre this time)

We now need Martha & The Vandella's Stereo mix of Jimmy Mack c/w Stereo mix Third Finger Left Hand as a 7" UK Tamla Motown vinyl.

Infact a First time Stereo UK 7" box set will sell out !

Not a single word in the notes is factually correct.
Its not a reissue, it's not Funk, It was not a Limited Edition, and it is sadly NEITHER 100% total Stereo sum Mono or shamefully Stereo AVOID

VERY IMPORTANT WARNING:-

Please note that this retro pressing of Frank Wilson's recording is neither the original mono mix as released by EMI as TMG 1170 in 1979.

Or indeed the stereo mix which this recording has.

It is>>>>(wait for this, 100% unbelievable as it may seem) a SUM-mono mix of the Stereo left hand channel only. It sounds vile because it has 50% of what was recorded and mixed missing.

There is to the very best of knowledge only one other release in the last few decades that had suffered the same total lack of mastering care/sonic checks etc etc:-

The Osmonds One Bad Apple Polydor UK 12" single EP (has Donny sitting on a Bubbler juke box).

There can be no excuse for this shoddiness and lack of simple due care and attention at the cutting/mastering/reference stages. These two releases are just pointless and a needless waste of matrix, stampers and PVC pucks let alone production/pressing time.

Thank goodness for EMI's invaluable 45 an absolute crisp top on the tree belter, the real icing on the cake is the stereo mix where the vibes, sax, tambourine and Frank's vocal cut takes off to another level and you can hear every note, word and expression..

None of that will you ever get, find or hear in this gaffed pressing, be warned!!
