NS552 The Construction [1978] - Hey Little Way Out Girl [UK Grapevine GRP 112]

b/w: My Heart Would Sing (official A side)
Format: 45
Label: SYNC6 / Grapevine
Cat No: S-924-B / GRP 112
Year: 196? / 1978

Confused? Let me explain. Released in the UK in 1978 on Grapevine as Del Capris owing to huge demand.  This was in fact a Richard Searling (Wigan Casino) cover up of The Construction (a white band) on the tiny New York label Sync6.  This record is extremely rare.  I have only seen 4 come up for sale in the last 6 years.  The Del Capris had already had a Northern’hit’with ‘Hey Little Girl” on Ronjerdon and then Kama Sutra, hence the cover up name was born.

Theres a great article on Grapevine done by Pete Smith over at Planet Records
