    Peter Gabriel had Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel, and Peter Gabriel, right? Atco, Atlantic, Mercury, and Geffen (in the U.S. it was called Security).

    I think Tim Maia is the worst case when it comes to naming records.
    All his records from 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1976, 1977, 1980, 1985 and 1986 have the same title (Tim Maia).
    Caetano Veloso is another example; not as bad as Tim: from 1968, 1969, 1971 (all by Polygram).

    Peace

    What's up with The Albert. I've been confused by this, thinking this is different than when I had it befor. Did they have 2 self titled records on Perception?

    4 self titled albums? What an egomanica!

    Maybe they couldn't afford an original title.

    Maybe they couldn't afford an original title.

    Or maybe they thought their names were the coolest thing in the whole world.

    Co-sign on Maia. Ridiculous. And even worse, many of his covers look the same.

    "yo, you need that Maia LP, son"
    "which one?"
    "the one called "Tim Maia" with him on the cover"
    "... ..."

    That's like...all of them.

    Or the two self-titled Gal Costa albums, both from 1969. I think everyone calls the second one 'Nao Identificado' just to keep it comprehensible.

    There are two Jr. Walker albums on the Soul label called LIVE. The difference is, the first one had an exclamation point (!) on the end.

    as far as the tropicalia records, that was done on purpose as a dada-esque art move. just being absurd on purpose...

    what about same song titles but different songs?

    Alvin Cash "Twine Time" on mar-v-lous andf his "Twine Time" on XL...different tunes altogether.

    You think? Because there are a lot of non-Tropicalia Brazilian artists with the same thing going on... Ed Lincoln, Tamba Trio, Milton Banana Trio, Tim Maia all released a ton of self-titled records in different years. Not to mention all the dudes who just released numbered records, like Andre Penazzi or Ed Maciel.

    I think we would be hard pressed to find another same title, same artist, differnt song example.

    There are lots of songs with the same title that are different songs. This one just came to mind:

    Call Me Aretha Franklin
    Call Me Al Green (Willie Mithchell)
    Call Me Jazz Standard (Hatch?)
    Call Me Blondie (Harry)

    Then there is the ever confusing same (or similar) name but different artist:







    These are 2 different guys, right:




    Doug Payne says they are the same.

    What about Original Soul Senders' "Soul Brothers Testify"? Correct me if I'm wrong here- same title, different songs and a slight difference in group name (one is original, one is not)? I have both 45s, I'm just not sure I remember all the details... I got those joints over a decade ago.

    And we discussed this on another thread not too long ago- same artist, same album title, same cover and label art, same song titles, same EVERYTHING except- a different recording of the music (on at least one of the songs, in some cses all of them)! Ripple Blast Singers "Funny Girl Ala Soul", Steve Halpern "Christening For Listening", one of the good Jamie Aebersol records (pink cover).

    Then there are the albums with a track missing on certain pressings. There are a number of these, right now what comes to mind is that "Brand New Funk '78" album on one of Sylvia Robinson's labels. And Captain Sky... there's the version of his first album with "Super Sporm", another one that has "Dr. Rock" in it's place, and yet another pressing that has both songs!!! I don't know what they were thinking about with that one.

    I am no help with this one.

    The big reason for swapping out tracks was once a song hit, it was stuck on the lp. So Fleetwood Mac's Oh Well replaced some other track, and Buffalo Springfield stuck For What It's Worth on and took something else off. In both cases these are the best songs on the record, but rock collectors want the raer version without.

    The other reason was the perception of something being obscene. This is probably what was up with Super Sporm. Didn't some labels call it Super Sperm?

    James Brown has multible examples of cuts being removed or added. There is a JBs with a DJ version with an extra cut. And Out Of Sight on Smash, and all the early King things being reissued with different covers and titles.

    Years ago a Japanese collector was telling me that after the Moments Not On The Outside, was originally released the lead singer was sent to jail. They them stripped his vocals off and replaced them with the new lead vocalist. He said the only way to tell the 2 versions apart was to listen for the different voices. I've never heard this mentioned again.

    Who Knows?

    Well, straight-up reissues shouldn't count. You were apparently talking about cuts being removed or added. As far as those King albums, covers were updated and titles were changed, but the basic content remained the same.

    Doug Payne is wrong. Two different folks. Lonnie LISTON Smith wears shades all the time.

    Not really. Jerry Butler got "Lost" twice - once on Vee Jay, and another time on Mercury. Both songs are different.

    The Staple Singers also had two different songs called "Are You Sure" (on Epic and Stax, respectively).

    Call Me Aretha Franklin

    Oh yeah, "Call Me" is one of the most cliched titles ever, right up there with "Give It Up" and "Loving You." The "Call Me" written by Tony Hatch is probably best known through Chris Montez' version.

    "I Need You" is the song title I always think of as having infinite versions...every big British Invasion band seems to have their own, Beatles, Who, Kinks...

    There are probably more versions of "Save Me" then the Isley Brothers one and the Aretha and others version...

    The Rationals (from the US) liked that title so much, they recorded two different songs with the title...one was a remake of the Kinks cut, the other was a song previously recorded by Chuck Jackson.

    tell me about it, I honestly heard the Kinks cover version by the Rationals and bought the A-Square 45 from eBay for cheap...only to get it and find the Goffin-King version, which is a ballad and not the punk beat record I thought I was buying!
