How Long Will It Take Me? by Pat Kelly.
Is it on an album that I can get?
Ain't heard this for almost 40 years and it's about time I got it back in my collection.

I would sell my copy on UK GAS (round VG+ if I remember correctly) if the price is right.

Aside from the single, I have this top tune on:

"Pat Kelly Sings" (Pama PMLP12 / 1969 - L.P.)
"Gas Greatest Hits" (Pama Economy ECO4 / 1969 - L.P.)
"This Is Reggae" (Pama PSP1003 / 1970 - L.P.)
"Trojan Jamaican Superstars Box Set" (Trojan TRBCD009 / 1999 - C.D.)
"Trojan Jamaican Hits Box Set (Trojan TRBCD017 / 2000 - C.D.)
"Reggae Chartbusters Volume 1" (Trojan 2711271 / 2009 - C.D.)

The last one is probably the best bet in terms of availability...

...what I don't recall is which versions have the "strings" on, i.e. as per the single.

Thanks very much, Zapatoo. I went and got one of those albums you recommended for the Pat Kelly tune.
What about this one: Girl What You Doing To Me? I think it may have been Owen Gray but it's been so long since I heard it that I am probably wrong. Any clues as to where I can get this?

It is Owen Gray, Bermondsey...

I only have it on the Camel single, THIS IS REGGAE L.P. (as per Pat Kelly above) and CAMEL AND THE OASIS OF REGGAE L.P. (Pama Economy ECO18 / 1969)

I don't know if it's been on any CD - someone else in here may know Wink

One of my favourite Owen Gray U.K. tunes.

It hurts me to see all the great singles and LPs I give away when I was a kid are now fetching fortunes.
Now I'm trying to get them all back so I can relive the memories again.
Thanks for your help.

Shocked

Unusual (maybe) - I wouldn't have thought that GWYD2M would run to more than one pressing, though why would the likes of Pama have corrected or created a mistake?

I kept pretty much all mine and have no plans to get shot of any....

Excellent taste Bermondsey Very Happy

Joe's copy of GWYDTM is from a second press run. Pama would press up a load of labels from a particular year and just press any old title on it - 'History Of Africa' and 'Maccabee Version' are examples of tunes with two different year dates. Getting into complete trainspotter mode, the correction to 'Gray' would suggest they pressed a load of labels for him with all the credits but the title and the ones from 1970 were printed with the correct spelling.

You should be able to pick up a vinyl copy of 'How Long' from e-bay for no more than a fiver - if you're sentimentally minded like me that is Wink

That would make sense, Marc - I didn't take to GWYD2M for some while, so never rushed to get a copy for several months.
