    I would say there is a slight chance. I actually heard from Eddie Disnute Sr. About a month ago. He was unaware of the popularity of "Sweetest Thing..." and "You're So Fine" in the UK, mainly the Northern Soul Group.I am bowing out and have no interest in pursuing a re-issue as I have been out of the music business for over 4 decades. I am not a collector either but I do have several copies left of "Can' Fight the Feeling" by Michael Burkes, which I wrote and produced the same year from the same label. It is on Dscogs and Youtube. I have a few old tapes from my studio of Michael Burkes and some jazz tunes I wrote and produced in the 70s that I dabble with as a hobby,

      Sorry Natalie. All out and virtually no chance of finding more. I do have several copies of another record I produced around that time called Can't Fight the Feeling. Michael Burks recorded that. I wrote, played piano on, and produced that (45) record also. I believe only 200 copies were pressed. Masters were destroyed in fire at pressing plant in the 1990s ,as were Your so Fine. CFTF is more of a funky beat and doesn't seem to fit Northern Soul Genre as well as YSF. I will try to post on Discogs in a few weeks. Not sure if it is on the internet anywhere. Good luck and happy vinyl searching.

        I recorded and produced this record in 1975. This was a group of very talented kids (at that time) lead by their father Eddie Disnute (Senior) from Camden Arkansas. Only 500 copies were made as I recall. Not sure if the masters are extant. I have a couple left most were returned to Mr. Disnute. I left the music business a few years later and never returned. The B side is very nice too.
