I've got a James Brown single that i can't find any information on. Could anyone help out?

It's on King, blue label, one side is "I Love You" (matrix # K-12717), other side is "Maybe I'll Understand" (K-12594). There is no catalog number. On the left side of the label, it says "Produced Expressly For Cold Power Axiom".

Thanks...

Actually it's Cold Power Axion. These were two Colgate-Palmolive laundry products from the 1960's. Axion was a stain pre-soak and cold power a detergent. This was a promo from 1968.

I pretty much just buy whatever's cheapest, but if somebody gave me James Brown 45's I just might switch. Marketing genius.

i only buy "tide", only "tide" gets out the dirt and grime in my clothes that get dirty from crawling around in those old buildings looking for the records.

Yes, Captain, you are correct! My old eyes deceived me, it's Axion. Is there any more value with this single than you're typical JB?

While i'm thinkiing about it, what's the difference between blue and red King labels? I''ve got one JB single that's on both blue and red labels.

Thanks!

The red King label was phased out in 1954-55. For example, Boyd Bennett's first pressings of "Seventeen" appeared on red label, then shortly thereafter appeared on blue label. JB (and whomever else) was sometimes pressed on red label stock if a box of the label blanks turned up: King honcho Syd Nathan wasn't about to waste anything! JB also appeared on black-label if he was on Bethlehem--the result of using up stocks of DeLuxe label blanks....
