DOWNLOAD NO.320 - SHERBET

Sherbet have other songs on this blog. Please use search facility to locate them.

Sherbet had a big pop career spanning many years. Their singles were glossy and well produced. One of the 1974 singles, "
So Glad You're Mine", has been ignored by the compilers as the original single version hasn't yet been issued on CD.

There were 3 versions made: One was the original album version running 3:35 mins which shows up on CDs all the time - strangely, it was not issued on a vinyl album for some time after another re-make version was issued. There was an edited mix of the first version called the single mix running 2:49 mins (shown above) and the third one was a new re-make which was issued on their next vinyl album.


According to notes from the Sherbet CD anthology the group were not happy with the first version as Darryl had a bad cold and hit a few raw notes...so they did the re-make to remedy this situation. It confused the buying public as the next album they issued didn't have the single version on it.

I always liked the first version, warts and all, as it sounds more immediate and catchy.

Here for download is a 12" Tom Mix of "
So Glad You're Mine" (extended from the first single version):
