    Tracie Young 'We Should Be Together'

    • Vindaloo Summer Special (credit on label and sleeve says "starring The Nightingales, Ted Chippington and We've Got A Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It!!") was distributed by WEA and so not an indie release like the previous Fuzzbox single which also seems to have had a boost due to the publicity.

      I am not going near that Su Pollard single!

      • I didn't know Sir Mix-A-Lot had a chart presence going back this far! I wonder if he still liked big butts and couldn't lie...

          kingofskiffle has credited the act as "The Nightingales, Ted Chippington, We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use It!" but I had to edit it down for space reasons. It seems that Music Week and Record Mirror also had the same problem as they too opted to credit the act as The Vindaloo Summer Special...

          I can't find the Su Pollard track on YouTube. Which is probably just as well as I can imagine how bad it would sound. Whether it would sound as bad as fellow camper Paul "Ted Bovis" Shane's 1990s cover of the same song may never be known...



          Some of the comments on YouTube for the above video are hilarious!

          • Suzy & The Red Stripes were Paul & Linda McCartney.

            'Seaside Woman' was released in 1977 - why is it only charting now ?!

              I was also surprised to see him in the charts in 1986. Looking at wikipedia, this is his debut single and didn't chart in any other country. I then remembered a single that will chart "next week" called 'UK Fresh '86 (The Anthem)' by Hashim on Streetwave records which was released to promote a hip-hop / electro event in July 1986 which was held at Wembley Arena. Sir Mix-A-Lot is on the line-up so presumably his label (also Streetwave) must have done a lot of promoting to get the single in the charts.

              http://www.streetsounds.co.uk/ukfresh86.html

              I remember the event as it was promoted all over London at the time, as well as being on a flyer that was included with an electro album I bought around that time.

                It was due to it being re-released once again. This was at least its second re-release and it still failed to sell many copies. Everyone involved seemed to give up after it flopped this time around...

                  Guess so! Dare say it probably made the Top 100 in '77 but we'll probably never know....

                  • Just watched 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling'! Ted really emoting to compensate for his limited vocal range! Aw bless him. I actually thought that the chap singing alongside him was Gary Numan from a distance and it was that which drew me in! The concept of Gary duetting with Paul Shane was too good to miss, but sadly I was wrong and so that must forever remain a marvellous musical pairing we'll never experience.

                      Someone commented that the guy alongside Paul Shane looks like a cross between Gary Numan and Jacko from Brush Strokes - and he really does too!

                        It was remixed in 86 - it was a 1972 recording so probably had more vintage appeal in 86. 77 was the US release, 79 was the original UK release. A cartoon video for it was released in 1980 and this probably helped the 86 release as it featured on the Rupert and The Frog Song VHS of 1984.

                          The Vindaloo Summer Special is the official credit https://www.discogs.com/master/12360...ox-And-Were-Go and the one in the Guinness and Virgin books with a note at the bottom describing the starring credit.

                            I always struggle with sort of 'non standard' titles to work out what it should be. 'The Vindaloo Summer Special' is not an artist of course and so do you include that in the artist credit? Each have their own opinion on this but I don't always get it right (and then neither does Guinness...)

                                  Miami Sound Machine 'Falling In Love (Uh Oh)' - US hit

                                  David Lee Roth 'Yankee Rose' - US and Australian hit


                                  Is it safe to say Dee C Lee has flopped by now? I had an approximate 12 July release date for 'Hey What'd Ya Say'.

                                        It doesn't chart at all. It makes me wonder if it was ever given a proper release as I would have expected it to do something, even at the bootom part of the 200.

                                          45cat has a release date of "July", but also a promo only version, so I guess it's possible it never got a full release, or was considered a re-issue of 'Selina Wow Wow' with the A and B sides flipped.
                                          Otherwise it's hard to imagine why she'd miss the top 200 less than a year after 'See The Day'.

                                          No1 also reviewed the single (favourably) in the July 12 edition.

                                            It may have been a contractual release where the label had to release the single (to fulfill the contract) but simply didn't think it was going to sell. Usually that just meant the single was marked as released and possibly just a small batch of singles were pressed to meet any interest. By this point the label had probably decided not to offer a new recording contract.

                                                  • It always struck me as illogical to combine sales of the two versions of 'Shout'....anybody agree?
