For the search engine: Randy Vanwarmer - Just When I Needed You Most

This was the big (and only) hit for him, although I far prefer the 1981 new-wave "Suzi Found A Weapon" (retitled
"Suzi" for the 45).

The first CD appearance is on Silver Eagle/MCA's 3-CD Shades Of Love (1989), where it sounds good. The same analog transfer is used for Warner Special Products' 2-CD Always (1990; absolute polarity inverted, much hissier fade than Shades)

Bill Inglot did a new analog transfer for Rhino's Billboard Top Hits 1979 (1991), which is a little bit better than Shades, but only a little. Then, a flood of CDs that all use the same analog transfer as Billboard Top Hits 1979:
  • Time-Life's Sounds Of The Seventies Vol. 35 AM Nuggets (1993; has left/right channels reversed - avoid)
  • Time-Life's Sounds Of The Seventies Vol. 39 Pop Nuggets Late '70s (1995; differently EQ'd digital clone)
  • Time-Life's 2-CD Body Talk Vol. 6 Only You (1996; differently EQ'd digital clone)
  • Time-Life's AM Gold Vol. 26 1979 (1997; digitally identical)
  • Time-Life's 2-CD Singers And Songwriters Vol. 5 1978-1979 (2000; differently EQ'd digital clone)
  • Time-Life's Ultimate Love Songs Collection Love Is You (2004; digitally exactly 2.691 dB louder than AM Nuggets, and therefore also has left/right channels reversed - avoid)
  • Time-Life's 2-CD Seventies Music Explosion Vol. 1 Sunshine (2005; differently EQ'd digital clone)
  • Time-Life's 2-CD Classic Soft Rock Vol. 11 Sweet Freedom (2007; differently EQ'd digital clone)
Best Bet

May as well spring for Rhino's Billboard Top Hits 1979 (1991).

Another note. The Rhino reissue 45 has a different mix
(sounds like an alternate rough mix of the tune). It has
some missing elements from the hit 45.

I must've heard that different mix today while listening to Accu Radio online. It even sounds like a different recording plus was shorter (about half a minute shorter). Shame on those stations that play something else that is not the original "hit" recording.

KentT,

I'd swear I have that "missing some instrumentation" version on
CD
reader's digest "easy listening hits of the 60s and 70s". The
database does *not* indicate this, however.

My copy is from Canada, but I can't access it as it's in a box in
Canada and I'm in Thailand until May. Pat, could you take a listen
to
yours?

Anyone else have the set, or know what's behind that version?

The version I have in my 70's library is from "Hard To
Find Singles" volume 19, more 70's essentials.
They have done such a good job in the past getting the
right 45 mix on CD, I would think that would apply here
also. Does anyone know for sure?

Yes, the Eric CD has the hit mix.

It's likely from the same analog transfer as Rhino's Billboard Top Hits 1979 CD.

Details in this other thread.

I figured if any one would, the Eric Records people
always get it done!
