DICK CURTIS - It's Not The Same


DICK CURTIS - 'Funny Girl'/'It's Not The Same' (CRI 5202) 196?

Here's an obscure 45 by Dick Curtis who I know nothing about. The label offers some clues though, Colortronics Recording Industries, Ann Arbor, Michigan. Could this be where Mr Curtis was from?

The most interesting side is the flip 'It's Not The Same', an urgent 60s punker that was compiled some years ago on the CD only release 'Grains Of Time'.

  1. An excellent track, with a great song and guitar, however it is the care lavished on the vocals that does it for me and makes me think that Dick was a MOR singer on his day off.

  2. This 45 pairs two songs recorded at vastly different times. The A side is "Funny Girl". This Colortronics label 45 was released in the fall of 1972.
    "It's Not the Same" was recorded in mono (A side is stereo, I think, I'd have to play my 45 and check).
    "It's Not The Same" was written and applied for copyright registration in December, 1964. Richard Curtis was living in West Los Angeles, California at that time he filed for registration.
