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.

    • A really nice vibe to this Chris.

  • Maybe not exactly Mod but the b side to George Harrison's 'My Sweet Lord' is the fantastic 'What is Life.' There is a great vid of it in youtube that i unfortunately am unable to put on here. Olivia Newton John did a very good version too but i think i slightly prefer the original.

    • Not sure which vid you meant Chris, there's lots of them but this one stands out for me...

    • Cheers for that Gary, much appreciated. I have never seen that one before but it is pretty good. My own favourite one has a dark haired girl dancing to it throughout various locations. Maybe helps that she is absolutely stunning ha ha

    • There you go Chris... Enjoy!

    • Top man Gary. Cheers for that, its a vid I never tire of watching. She reminds me of a young Kate Bush.

    • Anytime Chris. She's a looker no doubt about that mate.

    • Recently watched the George Harrison documentary Living in the Material World which inspired me to relisten to the All Things Must Pass album.  Many great songs there including the above.  The documentary is nearly three and a half hours long so probably should be classified as die hards only, although I’m sure there are plenty of us out there. 

    • Will maybe put a bit of time aside and look at it Scott. He was certainly a very talented guitarist and song writer, and a bit of a character too by all accounts.


    The B-Side of 'Take Me To The Water'. Sadly, this record is incredibly expensive.
