Amazing B sides

Over the past few years I have started to collect some fantastic vinyl 45s again. Some have been bought from car boot sales for next to nothing and others I have paid a few quid for, although to be honest I have not paid more than £12 yet. I already had quite a few great Soul and R&B singles from my early Mod days and have often been amazed at just how good some of the B sides are on these tracks. I will start off with the B side to a record I have had since 1982. 'Mockingbird' by Inez Foxx was the first record released on the British Sue label in 1963 (as far as I am aware), as well as the main track being superb the B side called 'He's the one You Love' is fantastic too. So what are your own favourite B sides to these crackin records.

  • The amazing B side to come on home. I think Evelyn LeGrand was an actress and this is the only record she made!


  • The amazing B side to come on home by the genius Jimmy McCracklin :-)


  • Been uploading a few tunes on my youtube channel tonight. The B side to bring me your love.

  • The amazing B side to Soulville. RIP Areatha

    • Brilliant as always Paddy.  I never knew that Ike and Tina Turner track 'He's the One' was a cover. Not sure what one I like the best but would probably edge towards thr cover.

    • Yeah I think Ike and Tina edge it :-) 

    • It is a really good song Paddy but Tina T's voice possibly just gives it the edge for me. I know Ike Turner was a total waster but some of the music they produced in the early to mid 1960s was just amazing.

    • I agree mate, Tina's dilemma is my favourite of theirs. 

    • It never ceases to amaze me the amount of fantastic records that are out there to be discovered Paddy. I had never heard that track before and it is really good. As always it is really tough to pick out favourites so I would go for either 'A Fool in Love' for an early gem, or 'Finger Poppin' for a later dance classic.

    • Both belters mate :-)
