I think the correct name is Questel (see attachment). A mistake on the label ?

There was a song called 'What's Love Got to Do With It' released as the 'B' Side

to a Single by Chap on Lo Recordings Cat No LO707 in 2008 in the UK.

Never heard it, but an unusual title to be different. Anybody know anything?


Hi Martin !


A bit off topic but The Chap released a cover of Tina Turner's "What's Love Got to Do With It" (not in the database yet); only 300 copies were released. A link and a video to answer your question.

I haven't forgotten about the missing originals. I added Swanee about six weeks ago.
