Darrow Fletcher - My Young Misery

Posted

I don't know what you people think, but I was pretty amazed at the latest price Darrow Fletcher - My Young Misery fetched on ebay the other day.

Now I know that Mike (thatgirl75) has a pretty high profile and attracts alot of bidders, and therefore high prices.

I also acknoledge know this track is popular at the moment but 24 Bids and a sale price of £224.06 - that seems steep to me. :thumbup:

I suppose it's the usual case of popularity driving scarcity as opposed to rarity.

Doubtless, it's a nice track but you can pick up a copy Darrow Fletcher - What Have I Got Now / Sitting There That Night - Jacklyn for a lot less.

It just goes to show what a price premium a prominent seller can command!

Regards.. :thumbsup:

As i'm old I was lucky enough to be able to buy this for pennies in the 70s but surely even now it's only a 30 quid record ???????

What should be resonable for the not often seen w/d copy - probably £75..

What you'd get if you put on Mike's next sale..

Who knows :lol:

I picked up a nice copy on ebay last year for about $75 US.

Looks like Mike's got the golden touch.

Check this out

After listing this three times I finally sold this for £16.09p only for the track to get broken by our illustrious post office, i then took my own copy out of my box and forwarded this so two tunes £16.09.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180421623412

wouldn't have minded the £200+ just to cover the P&P and the f****d tune

Its now residing in spain BTW
