It has never been played more than once as far as I know. Center hole appears to be slightly off center. Every copy of this record that I have seen has the same off center defect. I also have heard some minor noise at the start of either side on other copies of this record.The original pressings were not produced at a state of the art pressing plant. The record appears to be near mint or excellent. There is some minor bleed visible on the B side.
I'm the first and only owner. I have kept it safe in my possession since 1965. From a recent purchaser of one of my other copies of this very rare and hard to find original first pressing. The most perfect copy I've ever seen! Just one more after this number 11.
Could be a great gift for the holidays. This could be one of the best copies ever offered of this record on. It is a very rare find. Check out the pictures and see how shiny it appears. "Can't We Talk It Over " &.
1965 Green Dolphin, G&C 115-A and G&C 115-B. Super-rare first pressing Northern Soul by Larry Allen on Green Dolphin Records. Run outs : "Can't We Talk It Over" Handwritten G&C 115-B "Somewhere There is Paradise" Handwritten G&C 115-A followed by PARADISE. When the record was released in the US the Somewhere There is Paradise cut was the A side.
Only after this record years later found it's way to the UK did the B side "Can't We Talk It Over" become a mega UK hit. I can attest that this is a very rare first pressing of Larry Allen's record. I was a friend of Larry Allen when I was living in Western Pennsylvania USA in the 1960s and he gave me some copies of his record.
This original first version has Larry Allen on the label. There are not many great copies of the original pressing in 1965.I actually witnessed Larry Allen singing his record live at a school in Western Pennsylvania. I was part of his supporting stage crew and DJ. Based on the snippet below there may only be 100 or less original first press copies of this record in existence. Larry Allen was from Greensburg, PA. Jerry Reed, who owned the label, had 1000 copies pressed.
500 as Larry Allen and 500 as L. It was released in the fall of 1965. Jerry got frustrated because the record didn't sell and at the time he had an old car that he was junking, and he threw around 900 copies of the record into the trunk to be crushed and remelted. Tariffs rules are changing and I will do my best to keep your costs down.
