NS536 Johnny Honeycutt [196?] - I'm Coming Over [Triode 111]


b/w: If You Love Me
Format: 45
Label: Triode
Cat No: 111
Year: 196?
Value: £1551

Johnny Honeycutt is yet another mystery artist to me.  I have discovered that he is white although not obvious from this recording.  A driving RnB beater from I would guess around 1964 but may be a year either side.



This record has only ever appeared on eBay once. Here are the vendor's (www.raresoul45.co.uk) comments when it was listed in June 2009:

DESCRIPTION - FIRST TIME THIS RECORD HAS EVER APPEARED ON EBAY THAT JUST SHOWS HOW TRULY RARE THIS IS, A TRUE HOLY GRAIL RECORD WITH ONLY A HANDFUL OF KNOWN COPIES IN EXISTENCE THIS IS A VERY RARE OPPOTINITY FOR ANY COLLECTOR OR DJ TO FINALLY ADD THIS NORTHERN SOUL TROPHY TO THERE COLLECTION THIS WONT COME ALONG AGAIN IN A HURRY

The record was reissued on Triode 1001 to meet demand.  One of these will cost you around £40.
