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.

    • Cheers for the info mate, will have a wee look at it later.

  • I slightly prefer this part 2 of Rollin and Tumbling to Part 1 on the A-side from the legendary 1950 Parkway sessions. Well worth a purchase. Enjoy

  • The flip side to 'Think About Me'.

  • Some great B sides,some better than the A side! This one was flagged up the other day,im a big Small Faces fan,this is one of Marriotts finest vocals in my opinion.Should add,this is B side to Watcha gonna do about it.

    • Two great tracks above. The Small Faces one is obviously extremely well known but it shows off just how fantastic a voice Stevie Marriott had. The St Louis Union one is brilliant too Gary and is one I know very well from club nights here in Glasgow.

    • Very good indeed Billy !

  • An amazing b-side from the King, ha ha ;0)





















  • Staying with the Stax label, this superb mod dancer b-side, from the evergreen Booker T and the MG's.


    • Very good instrumental that Gary from a fantastic band.
