Long Tall Sally

August 2nd, 2010

Long Tall Sally is my favorite item in my collection!  It is a British EP issued in June of 1964 on the Parlophone label.  The songs contained on the EP are “Long Tall Sally,” “I Call Your Name,” “Slow Down,” and “Matchbox.”  It was issues in mono with the number GEP 8913.

The main reason why this is my favorite item in my collection is because the music is where it’s at – that’s what is most important.  Additionally, the EPs are much more rare than the regular 45 singles – and you get twice as much music!!!

I bought this EP at a record store back in 1994.  I remember being completely overwhelmed by the amount of music at this store.  It was outside of Philadelphia, and the place was known for its music.  I have no idea if the store is even still there!  Anyhow, I remember looking at the glossy and matte photos on the covers of albums, 45s, and EPs, not knowing where to start.  And then I remembered hearing “Long Tall Sally” on a CD I own.  Paul’s singing is amazing;  his yells reach right into your soul and you can’t help but dance along!  At that moment I knew that I had to spend the $40 on the record!  Maybe overpriced for that time period, but it was SO worth it!
