Old School British 45 scholars.. why is it?
The seasoned British Soul 45 collector with be nodding (with perhaps a little frustration), when we write, one of the most challenging tasks in accumulating these gorgeous 60’s British 45, is acquiring the “Classics” as the DEMO copy.
This anomaly also is underlined whilst acquiring EMI Red & White with the Motown hits, seemingly being far harder to acquire than the non-hits as the DEMO copy. One theory that I kinda support, is if anyone in the UK Record Industry was gonna “take home” any Promo copies they would choose the “popular” titles.. Or the fact the Record Companies thought well this is a huge “Hit” in the USA do we really need to scatter the PROMO into every avenue of promotion?
Whatever the reason for this thought provoking phenomena, it seem to be a fact that the “hits” as Promo copies are significantly harder to acquire..
Before you today is one such example. So very hard to capture Yellow Demo of Wilson Pickets greatest recording moment. A MOD anthem evoking visions of Carnaby Street, Flares, Union Jacks & All-Nite Soul clubs, as the MODS embraced R&B from the USA.
An historical 45 that so very seldom surfaces in these clothes..
Condition is impeccable, if it was for a lone lightest of whispy hairline on one side, (not affecting play) we have graded this DEMO MINT minus.. as you can see the alluring labels are are spotless.
