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.

  • Even better than the A side. I don't care what anyone says, I bloody love Secret Affair (even though Mr Page could be a motor mouth sometimes).

    • Great band and song .A big mouth and peacock strut is a big part of mod. 


    My favourite song, no contest.

     "True it's a dream, mixed with nostalgia..."

  • Chased by the moon while following the sun into la, la, land...

  • As the sun goes down... A couple of chillout amazing B's, starting with this lovely b-side from the wonderful Ms Jones and her band, The Dap-Kings.

    • Two really good tracks there Gary. I think was have discussed The Jam a few times on here Matt and my opinion is that there has never been a band who had so many amazing b sides as them. The biggest majority were far better than the A sides of their peers.

      I have been buying quite a few records as usual but most of the b sides have been not so hot. One definite exception to that is the b side to the Agents Northern Soul classic 'Trouble.' I am not sure how to embed these things but it is certainly worth listening to via youtube as it is quite fantastic.

    • There you go mate... A very smooth, cool, floorslider Chris ;0)

    • Thanks very much for that Gary, you are a true gent and it is very much appreciated.

    • Nice record that Gary, a bit unusual but good none the less.
