We are business as usual however please be patient if your parcel takes a little longer to reach you than normal...this is beyond our control. All mail services are short staffed, not always updating the tracking information.
Mail services across the world are taking extra precautions so delays are expected due to the countries authorities applying special orders e.g. quarantine; or special measures being implemented by the local postal/delivery service to minimize the spread of the virus.

WE ARE SHIPPING WITHIN 48 hours (like the postal services we are also short staffed at the moment with 1/2 our normal workforce on furlough.)

How and why would the president of Vee-Jay Records, Randy Wood be producing and recording a British mod/soul group, they do sound British though and nothing like the Ad Libs from New York. Strange..

Be careful of "Mock-up" glossy paper sleeves. Our copy has glossy thick card sleeves, with no cellotaped seams, upon its limited release, our archive copy has glued flipback seams and the sleeve does not appear to be "handcut".

the authentic original 45 press, is actually quite rare, most copies in the marketplace are bootlegs, look-as-like counterfeits, like the label image on this file. the original label can be seen on the top sound sample image.

NOTE the sound volume on this 45 is very low, but clean.

Towdthi, that is the correct matrix for the original press. the JW 006A refers to it's intended release on the "Jay Walking" label that never happened

The owner of the original acetate soul historian Andy Rix, has always considered the crediting of Ann Robinson to this recording as erroneous. Not only because the vocal is nothing like Ann Robinson's but also because Ann Robinson was not in... See full review

This release used the original 1968 master stampers, with the Nashville Matrix in the deadwax, matrix markings are identical to the 1968 GREEN and GOLD label first press.
