    Larry Allen 45 Can't We Talk It Over Northern Soul Rare First Press G&C 115-B
    While going through my collection of 45 RPM records that I have owned since the mid 1960s I stumbled onto another near mint copy of a very rare Larry Allen Record. This copy has never been played as far as I know. I did play test it and did hear some very minor noise at the start of “Can’t We Talk It Over” and also at the very end. Center hole appears to be slightly off center. Every copy of this record that I have seen has the same off center defect. I also hear some of the same noise on the other side. The original pressings were not produced at a state of the art pressing plant. As far as I can tell this was the first and only time this copy of the record was ever played. The record appears to be near mint. No apparent scratches or scuff marks. There is no writing or stains on either side of the label. I’m the first and only owner. I have kept it safe in my possession since 1965. I received the following feedback from a recent purchaser of one of my other copies of this very rare and hard to find original first pressing. The most perfect copy I’ve ever seen! Many thanks Northern Soul Larry Allen 45 RPM “Can’t We Talk It Over” 1st Pressing near mint (#292945184544). Check out the pictures and see how shiny it appears. “Can’t We Talk It Over ” &. “Somewhere There Is Paradise”. 1965 Green Dolphin, G&C 115-A and G&C 115-B. Super-rare first pressing Northern Soul by Larry Allen on Green Dolphin Records. Run outs : “Can’t We Talk It Over” Handwritten G&C 115-B “Somewhere There is Paradise” Handwritten G&C 115-A followed by PARADISE. When the record was released in the US the Somewhere There is Paradise cut was the A side. Only after this record found it’s way to the UK did the B side become a mega hit. I can attest that this is a very rare first pressing of Larry Allen’s record. I was a friend of Larry Allen when I was living in Western Pennsylvania USA in the 1960s and he gave me some copies of his record. This original first version has Larry Allen spelled out on the label. There are not many great copies of the original pressing in 1965. I actually witnessed Larry Allen singing his record live at a high school in Washington Pennsylvania. I was part of his supporting stage crew and DJ. Based on the snippet below there may only be 100 or less original first press copies of this record in existence. Snippet of information interesting.. Larry Allen was from Greensburg, PA. Jerry Reed, who owned the label, had 1000 copies pressed. 500 as Larry Allen and 500 as L. It was released in the fall of 1965. Jerry got frustrated because the record didn’t sell and at the time he had an old car that he was junking, and he threw around 900 copies of the record into the trunk to be crushed and remelted.
