Leroy Jones Jr Anyone Know This Track Please?

Recommended Posts

No point asking me what I think of this particular record, but I just wondered if anyone knew it as someone asked me if I wanted to sell it. It's a modern dancer (I say modern, it's the sort of thing that would have been played at Cleethorpes) and has a kind of isley brothers guitar sound.

LEROY JONES JR with FUSION BAND - I DON'T HAVE TO BEG MY BABY

There is no label named, which probably didn't help sales, number is U-64523

Other side is a nice sweet soul type ballad.

Anyone know it? Price?

Clip coming up

Googled it and only came up with below

http://www.midwest45...isFunkPage.html (scroll down) has this as an Illinois record but

this site has it as possibly Indiana

http://www.indiana45...ndiana45s_j.php

The Indiana site has a rarity rating of "5" but I can't find what scale they use so it's meaningless.

Plus there was a "want" for it on fryer-mantis

Apart from that zilch

I think it's a different artist Baz, this guy is leroy Jones Jr and the recordings on hit must have been a decade earlier - and from texas weren't they?

Obviously this sort of record is not my cup of tea and I will happily let it go but I've made so many cock ups with this type of record that I really would like to find out what it's actually worth and sell it or swap it for that amount. Or offers, don't care.

Trouble is, nothing in the run off groove either apart from the record number...

Listed as a 5 outta 10 for rarity on the site but no prices?

Baz obviously likes it ,so get him to make a offer,he's honest with his sales on here,not a rip off,just like yourself.

Good luck

Thanks for putting up the track, Pete, as with the other posters, I liked that; was a bit funky, especially in some circles, I'd guess, but, still, a nice track, and dancer...thumbup.gif

I'm pretty sure this is Chicago and not Indiana. Pretty hard to find record, hard to find clean, I would say $100-$200 mint, but not well known.
