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.

    • I could not have put it any better myself Gary, cheers mate.

    • I agree Gary,  i think Smoove and Turrell are outstanding and their physical appearance, couldn't be further from the Mod look.

    • A brilliant sound Al, which to me is what music is all about ;0)

    • True indeed! Alongside mod related music, I enjoy Peter Gabriel era Genesis and the album Kilimanjaro by The Teardrop Explodes. 

    • Kilimanjaro is a fantastic album. I have not listened to it for a long time tbh but will look it out and give it a spin again. One song that I recall that is class is 'When I Dream.'

    • Bouncing babies is my fave tune, on Kilimanjaro.

    • It's a great tune, for sure. My favourite is Thief Of Baghdad, along with Poppies In The Field and Second Head being big highlights.


    My favourite song of all time.

    • It is a fantastic song Matt and always reminds me of some incredible days that we enjoyed back in 81 as young Mods.

  • No Barriers to this fab B-side from 1968... UK freakbeat band The Barrier from Fulham...
