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.

    • It is an excellent record Paddy. It is on the b side of the amazing 'Soldier of Love.' I think Gerry and the Pacemekers also did a version around 63 which is decent but not a patch on the original.

    • Fine track there Paddy. A bit remniscent of Arthur Alexander's 'Where Have You Been' which is no bad thing as far as I am concerned.
