SMILE – LADY LUCK/BILLY KERN (BRADLEYS, 1973) (BRAD 308) ((VG/EX-) 7”-INCH VINYL SINGLE IN ITS ORIGINAL BRADLEYS GENERIC PICTURE SLEEVE. Sounds like “Old, New, Borrowed & Blue”-period SLADE, WIZZARD. HEAR IT BELOW!Superb un-comp’d Junkshop Glam Rock/Pop double-sider from 1973. The A-side “Lady Luck” sounds like a tough blending of “Old, New, Borrowed & Blue”-period Slade and Wizzard, with a neat string arrangement and phasing. The B-side “Billy Kern” sounds like it should have been an A-side, too, telling the story of the law-breaking Billy Kern, and being reminiscent of songs like “Quick Joey Small” and Shades’ “Hold On Billy”. The picture sleeve is showing some minor signs of wear with a small seam split opposite the pocket and a couple of tiny tears near the pocket. The orange A-side label has a tiny circular, orange sticker on it, which can probably be easily removed. The vinyl looks Ex and plays Ex-.
