Please –We Aim To Please -Peter Dunton acetates UK Popsike 1968/69

Acetate 1: Please -We Aim To Please/ Man With No Name

Acetate 2: Please - We Aim To Please (rougher version) /Paper Anne

Peter Dunton is particularly close to my heart for his brilliant Dave Edmunds produced phased out single Taking Time which was released in 1973 Hear it  Here

Although he is perhaps best known as founder of T2, he was also in the Flies (wrote both sides of their Magic Train / Gently As You Feel single) . On top of that he was in Bulldog Breed and even spent some time with the Gurvitz brothers in Gun (Race With The Devil). As evidenced here, he was also in a band called Please which also featured members from The Flies and Bulldog Breed.

Please never got to release anything in their lifetime, yet many tracks were recorded but  only released later on ACME. I don’t have access to the released output, but I assume that these acetates were used to compile their posthumous releases (Update it has been confirmed that these are different versions). However the acetates feature 2 very different of We Aim To Please. One version is much rougher than the other, but I love them both for different reasons, although lacking a final sprinkle of fairydust, both songs are long lost gems of UK Popsike and should have been released at the time. There are different B sides which I have included for your listening pleasure.

Paper Ann is really a great lost song! PS: you should add all these acetates on 45cat!
