The 45 of "My Style" by the Class-Set is pressed at the wrong speed. The only way to get the true mix of this track is on the LP. The Chosen Few 45 supposedly came out on the band's own Few Inc. label initially, but I have never seen a copy. The McKinley Mitchell 45 also came out on the Bill Collin's Black Beauty imprint. The Newsounds 45 originally came out on the Scorpion label, home of the Answers. The James Mann 45 first came out on the Soundtown label and is infinitely rarer in that form. Guitar Red's 45 version of "Disco From A Space Show" is slightly different than the LP version, and Classetts lead singer Michael Quinn also offers a vocal version of the tune (with a cut from the Class-Set LP on the flip). The Confidentials 45 was originally on the Masterpiece label from Detroit and shows involvement from Jackie Harris of "Work Your Flapper" fame. It comes as an instrumental (with a good mix) under Earthly Upchurch's name. The Casey Jones 45 also came out on the EPI label, credited to Casey Jones and the Firemen. The three versions of "She's Gone" by label owner Chick Sibit all have drastically different mixes. The Georgianna McCoy version of "I've Got To Space" replaces the male lead with Georgianna's female vocal, ditto the flip. I am aware of at least one other 45 on Mod-Art by Leon Farrell (of the Ghetto Sons on King James), but I have no hard details on that.

Thanks again Dante. There needs to be more archiving like this. Simply stashing away a 45 and not knowing anything about it seems like a waste of time to me. And the clock is ticking as these artists and label owners get older.
