  • While cataloging my 7" singles, I added some to my 'Discogs Marketplace' for sale.
    Here's an example for a nice gem from the so called inventors of the "Heavy Metal Genre":

    • 'Paranoid' - Black Sabbath . (DE Vertigo - 6059 010, 1970)

      • . Image


        . Image


        . Image


        . Image

    You shouldn't hesitate too long . . . otherwise it probably has been sold . Image
    Sure, here's an audio clip for those of you, who aren't familiar with this song . . . . Image

  • I was introduced to this incredible English comedy/art-rock band in 1972 I guess, since that time I'm in love with their really special kind of music. Yesterday I have cataloged their 7" singles that I own and I thought I should share my favorite song with you at least:

    • 'Canyons of Your Mind' - Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band . (DE Liberty - 15 144, 1968) it's the 'flip-side' of their "I'm the Urban Space Man"

      • . Image


        . Image


        . Image


        . Image

    This song is a magnificent evidence of 'Vivian Stanshall's' (R.I.P.) unbelievably rank kind of song writing as well as his overwhelming performance! . Image
    Here's an audio/video clip to give you a clue of what I'm talking about. Enjoy . . . . Image

  • One more of my singles of the Bonzo's of which I like the "flipside" most, I will share this little gem with you too:

    • 'I Want to Be With You' / 'We Were Wrong' - The Bonzo Dog Band . (DE Liberty - 15 273, 1969)

      • . Image


        . Image


        . Image


        . Image

      Each time I give their records a spin, no matter if it's singles or albums, I am fascinated again . . . ?? . Image
      Sure an audio-clip (of the B-side) . Image

  • I recently weeded out four 7" singles of 'The Boys' for my Shop on the 'Discogs Marketplace'. Here's the only 7" single I kept, it's one of my favorite songs ever, since I heard the Rolling Stones' cover version of this great 'Arthur Alexander' song from 1961:

    • 'You Better Move On' / 'Schoolgirls' - The Boys

      • English release: . (UK Safari - SAFE 27, 1980)

        • . Image


          . Image


          . Image


          . Image


        German release: . (DE Safari - 1C 006-63 783, 1980)

        • . Image


          . Image


          . Image

      Such a great cover version, I simply had to keep both of these little gems. . Image
      Sure, here's an audio clip for you! . Image

  • How about a keeper out of my singles cabinet? Here's one I really love . . .

    'When You Were Mine' / 'Soulful Dress' - Bette Bright and The Illuminations . (UK Korova - KOW 14, 1981)

    The A-side's a cover version of a "Prince" (R.I.P.) song and the flip-side is a cover of The Radiants' song co-written by 'Maurice McAlister'. They were an American doo-wop band in the '60s.

    • 'When You Were Mine' / 'Soulful Dress' - Bette Bright and The Illuminations . (UK Korova - KOW 14, 1981)

      • . Image


        . Image


        . Image


        . Image


        . Image


        . Image

      Bette still is vocalist of a band called 'Deaf School', some of you might know 'em . . . one more member was 'Cliff Hanger' (real name Clive Langer) who joined 'Big In Japan' shortly and became a bit popular with 'Clive Langer and The Boxes' in the '80s. . Image

      Sure, here's an audio clip: The B-side, once again I like it so much more! . Image

There's a rich vein of British punk / new wave / post punk in this thread that really takes me back... :)

As I recall Clive Langer and his cohort Alan Winstanley also made it pretty big as producers, working with some of the more enduring acts to come out of the late 70s such as Madness and Elvis Costello.

  • Nice to receive some feedback here, it's much appreciated. For me, the late '70s and early '80s were exciting and interesting in musical terms. The so called post-punk era brought up a lot of fresh and unexpected artists. This period extended the musical genres significant to the better!

    Regarding "Langer/Winstanley you are right, they produced a lot of artists, not necessarily those, that I was interested in.

  • The letter "C" section in my 7" singles cabinet contains some really nice little gems, that I haven't touched for far too long. Here's one of the more scarce recordings:

    • 'Hitparade 2' - Petula Clark . (UK Nixa (Pye) - NEP 24056, 1958) a reissue, original was released 1957

      • . Image

        . Image

    Would you have recognized her without the name on the cover? It's a bit different in contrast to her later heyday releases, a bit more '50s style, but not bad.. Image
    Here's an audio clip for example! . Image
