Pub Jukebox Record No.0628 : Skull Snaps : "My Hang Up Is You" [1973]

Back in the day it was harder to find certain records. There was no online searching in those days. Consequently, it could take you years to track down a particular record. This was one that had me flicking through record boxes for years. It's not that I am mad about the recording but it simply became a quest to find a copy. Actually it's not that easy to find these days and has sold for very high prices when emerging on the Internet [bootlegs are available for much less].

I first heard this polished soul track in the late 1970's and it was 14 years before I stumbled across a copy at a record fair held in Birmingham. I was flicking through the S's and couldn't believe my eyes. I picked out the mint condition single and, feigning only slight interest, nonchalantly enquired for a price. I was told £4 by the dealer. £4! I would have given him £40 just to end the mission to find the blinkin' thing. I casually handed over the money and headed for the tea stand before holding the record aloft like it was the F.A. Cup that I'd won.

Incidentally, the album from which this single is taken has a few more funky tracks and "It's a New Day" has been sampled to death by hip-hop artists. There is a You Tube video link for this jukebox track but I tend to agree with one of the comments in that it is playing a little fast.
