Excellent work - what a wonderful education. Certainly deeper than the eye can see!

I can't seem to post over there. It's my third reading and I'm still taking it all in. You must have spent months collating let alone writing. Great job. Awesome.
|By Ritchie (188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206) on Saturday, April 06, 2002 - 08:34 am:|
Thanks for the comments - it's appreciated. Altogether, the piece took about nine months, from start to finish. Now I'm ready to start the next project!
Chris - I couldn't get in to Soulsville at all last night, and Sis mailed me to say the same. Yahoo - don't you just love 'em!? I just tried a test posting - which went through OK, so I guess the problems are sorted - for the moment, at least.

Wonderful stuff as always! I had a shufty through yesterday. I can see I'm going to have to spend more time in the details and also the Anorak site. Boy, I wouldn't mind a few of those records!
|By Ritchie (220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168) on Friday, April 12, 2002 - 08:54 am:|
Re Soulsville UK @ Yahoo -
Sorry I've not been in for a few days... At the moment I just can't post at the Group as I keep getting "connection timed out" messages. It's even more frustrating as it's my own group!
|By Ian call me Thelma W (22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 01:24 pm:|
Re. label scan on your website: have you a copy of Richard Street & Distants on Thelma? If so, please could you give me the ZTSC numbers on either side. I couldn't quite make it out from the label scan. I've heard a few of the earlier Thelma recordings but I've never heard this one. (Jealous teath-grinding noises of frustration fade into background!)
|By Ritchie (188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 05:30 pm:|
The numbers are
82335 for ANSWER ME
82336 for SAVE ME FROM THIS MISERY
The A-side is great, the B-side OK, but derivative (shouts from the Isley Brothers of "can we have our song back please?")
Own-up time: .... and I don't own either title on vinyl, by the way!
|By Ian W (220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 07:46 pm:|
Thanks Ritchie! No need to be embarrassed about not having every rare item on vinyl - at least you can spell 'teeth'! At least I didn't put tooths! Ain't that the tooth!
|By Ian W (22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 07:52 pm:|
Oops, I forgot. is TY 4 2282 a telephone number or something. It features on your label scan and on Will Hatcher's 'This And That' (No I don't have that one either).
Does anyone have ZTSC numbers for Emanuel Lasky - 'Lucky To Be Loved By You'/'Our World' on Thelma T-103?
|By john lester (188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 08:02 pm:|
Why do you want the ZTSC numbers...
|By Ritchie (220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 08:20 pm:|
Collectors have to have SOMETHING to write on our anoraks!
|By Ian W (22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 08:24 pm:|
John, I guess I'm just being completist. Is there such a word? There is now! I think that series of numbers (although I know now they have nothing directly to do with Detroit) started me collecting in the first place. If you sort Detroit 45's in ZTSC order (and I realise I'm sounding a bit of an anorak) it makes interesting reading! Thanks Columbia!
|By Ritchie (188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 08:29 pm:|
TY4-2282 was the phone number, I believe.
Graham should have the info on the wonderful Emanuel Lasky 45. (It's in the box I returned to you, Graham!)
I have a label scan somewhere, but it might be quicker for you to get the info from Taiwan!
|By Ian W (220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168) on Sunday, April 14, 2002 - 08:41 pm:|
I think I'll give 'em a ring, Ritchie, they might still have all the Thelma records I'm missing! Well you never know. OK I'm dreaming. I'll get my coat!
|By acoooclat (22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199) on Monday, April 15, 2002 - 02:54 am:|
Funnily enough I spoke to Emanuel just the other day - he sounds great. Did this guy ever make a bad record?
I'll gig out the ZTSC numbers when I get home and post them up here.
John - ZTSC numbers are a good way of dating releases.
|By acooolcat (188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206) on Monday, April 15, 2002 - 09:22 am:|
"Lucky To be Loved By You" was not released on Thelma, it came out on the Wild Deuce label, and by fluke is # 1003.
There is no Thelma 103 - the numbers jump from 102 to 104.
Emanuel Laskey's earlier 45, "I Need Somebody" was released on Thelma - but with no master number; it was also issued on the NPC label # 303.
(Thelma) I Need Somebody - ZTSC 94494. Tomorrow - ZTSC 94495
|By Dave f.. (220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168) on Monday, April 15, 2002 - 04:29 pm:|
Re:Emanuel Laskey,i have this info,
I need somebody/Tomorrow-Thelma 2282???
Tomorrow/I need somebody-Thelma 94494/5 1963
Lucky to be loved by you/Our world-Thelma 103(not issued) 1964
All seems to be a bit confusing to me:-).
|By Ian W (22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199) on Monday, April 15, 2002 - 06:22 pm:|
Thanks Graham and Dave. I've got the NPC item but would prefer the Thelma copy. Maybe one day! I also have documented 'Lucky To Be Loved By You' on Wild Deuce - 829, same B-side.
Is the 2282??? another released item? The confusing stuff makes collecting worth while though!
|By acooolcat (188.8.131.52 - 184.108.40.206) on Tuesday, April 16, 2002 - 06:56 am:|
Hi Dave f,
2282 - or whatever - was Thelma Record's telephone number that appeared on the earlier releases. Some record companies did this so that customers could call and order more copies etc.
Ian - Thelma 103 was never released, and if it had been - wouldn't have been Emanuel Laskey's "Lucky To Be loved By You." Another 45 was scheduled for release but was cancelled. I don't know about Wild Deuce number 829 - but I'll look at my copy when I go home and see if it's on the label anywhere. Maybe # 829 it was a promo copy?
|By Dave f.. (220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168) on Tuesday, April 16, 2002 - 03:44 pm:|
Thanks again for the info,i did`nt think that 2282 was the right number some how,just looking at my copy of "E.Laskey" on"Wild Deuce" a
promo copy,it says this on the left side of the lable,
|By acooolcat (22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199) on Thursday, April 18, 2002 - 04:11 am:|
My "issue" also has that number Dave.
I just looked at recordmaster.com and saw a 45 - Thelma 103 credited to Emanuel Laskey, called "Happy Man" - Where did that one come from?
