Real Humdinger – Ric Tik 110 1966 – Motown UK 1968
BABY PLEASE COME BACK HOME – Groovesville 1967
Now That I’ve Got You Back
Our Love Is In The Pocket – 1968 (Revilott – copy of Darrel Banks
A Real Humdinger by J. J. Barnes was a cracking track and was played till the grooves wore out but I never heard it at Manchester soul clubs apart from The Blue Note. A Ric Tik record that we imported due to the fact that we knew that Edwin Starr recorded Headline News for this label and that Revillot distributed and recorded Darrel Banks all from the same stable. -We obtained anything we could on these labels and yes found in our imported parcel a ‘Real Humdinger’.
It was a copy of the Motown factory style but great none the less. We played it to death at home on our Dansette record player and it was played at the Blue Note and then it got nicked, I think on the same night!
Real Humdinger/ Please Let Me In / I Ain’t Gonna Do It (TMG 870) was released in 973.
Glad to say J.J. Barnes is Still Goin’ after all these years – keep the faith J.J!
