ROSEMARY SQUIRES If He Walked Into My Life. Extremely rare 1967 UK ‘A’ label demonstration sample vinyl 7" for the unreleased single, with planned release date of 1.9.67 on the intact four prong centre, also featuring Maybe You’ll Be There, Columbia company die cut paper sleeve.
This was planned as a single but was never released.
The British Library apparently have a couple of copies and we have seen one other for sale at considerably more than this one.
How many of these actually exist ? We don’t know. All we can say for sure is that it very hard to find out anything about it and that Columbia’s own catalogue has the number listed as blank – i.e. Not used / allocated.
The performances here are backed by Arthur Greenslade & His Orchestra with a superb vocal from Rosemary.
This particular copy comes from the personal collection of Rosemary Squires herself, so its authenticity is undoubted.
As regards condition, it appears to have been played, but possibly only once or twice. There is no evidence of any repeated play or groove wear and it remains in excellent condition.
There is one small surface scuff on the B Side but this has no effect on play and is just cosmetic.
So, there you have it. This is Rosemary’s personal copy that she has kept almost pristine for nearly fifty years.
The only real chance of finding another copy would be an ex-Radio Station or review copy, and the chances if finding one near ‘as new’ like this, extremely remote.
