Those Old Records is a record shop in Rugeley, Staffordshire. They run a mailorder and also a label which has just issued a couple of excellent Emidisc acetates from the 60s (bought from a former Sounds journalist, apparently) on 45 for the first time. "Tangled Web" by Bedford's Spell is a lilting dose of soft psych from the same orbit as The Action's trippier, less overtly soul-influenced material:
Equally enjoyable is "Train" by John Williams which oscillates between a tightly wound Brit R&B shuffle and looser, more psychedelic structures:
How something so distinctive wasn't deemed worthy of a release at the time is a mystery! Those Old Records have to be commended for allowing the music of John Williams and Spell to finally take its rightful place on 7" vinyl. Sterling stuff.
