    hi i love james king and the lone wolves. wish i could get the 12inch i had again. ready to fall, i dont care if you live or die are GREAT songs. i also remember TV21 and the syd presley experience. can never get those songs again which is sad as theyre all great songs.

  2. Hi Terry

    It’s funny – the James King stuff I’ve posted here has attracted more attention than anything else. There’s maybe more of a market for reissues than I might have thought. Have you got the video?

    Otherwise record fairs/second hand shops would be the only way of getting the records.

    TV21 are hoping to reissue the LP at some point – the Scars managed it earlier this year so there’s always hope.

    Sid Presley? Now you’ve got me thinking …

    Syd Presley Experience became The Godfathers, and mighty fine they were, too! A must every St Valentines Day.

  4. Cheers, Simon. I take it you found the actual post on the SPE?
