Freda Payne – Band Of Gold


Another sleeveless 7″ discovered hidden inside an LP sleeve – Freda Payne’s classic “Band Of Gold”  (Invictus,  1970). The record has numerous battle-scars but plays absolutely fine, once again proving the remarkable resilience of the great 7″ single. The b-side is a pleasant little excursion called “The Easiest Way To Fall”, notable for a super one-bar drum break right near the start, which I’m sure must’ve been used in a hip hop record. Certainly, if I was still pottering around making beats on my old Amiga, I definitely would’ve sampled this!

  1. How funny. My copy of this 7 is also a charity shop find, battered beyond belief, still playing fine. The B side intro break was used on J.V.C. Force’s “Strong Island”. How are you by the way?

  2. all the better for hearing from you, Bob! the question is whether we will finally see Space loops v.3 enshrined on 7″ this year..?

  3. All good here, fella. Will be in touch with some new sounds soon. As for Space Loops, the man from Enraptured he say yes (his boiler broke down last year so the funds were re-assigned to keeping him alive through the winter). The first white vinyl, double 7″, gatefold package to come out of the box will have your name on it, squire…

  4. i luv u. incidentely, if you’d been following my tweets, you’d know that there are things afoot in the creative dept here…stay tuned…

  5. mutual love vibes going out to the annex. the gatefold thing is our tribute to Gutterbreakz blog! unfortunately, i’m in the ‘twitter-ye-not’ camp so i know nuffink! nevertheless, i demand to be informed of any goodies exiting the annex audio camp asap! will break the habit of a lifetime and go twittering now…
