Recommended Posts

It never ceases to amaze me what some people try to sell on ebay - so I thought I;d try and find the ugliest specimens, here's one to start...

That is hideous but it should only be soul records which originally had pristine labels, I've got a few hundred of those Jamaican blanks and they really do look and smell terrible!

This is one of the most famous US garage 45s, as iconic to that scene as Frank Wilson, JD Bryant on Shrine, or Junior McCants "Try Me" are to US Northern Soul 45s.

Be that as it may, the record does not play through and the winner was an infamous collector known as the 'Caveman', someone whose thinking is rather diminutive to their wallet size....

Getting back to my first sentence, if a copy of one of the three records I mentioned, or a similar item came up for sale, an unplayable copy, I wonder what it would sell for.....g.gif

I think I just don't have enough money to understand. I feel bad spending $150 on a VG- record no matter how rare or expensive a minter is. It's all about having a nice copy for me.

I suppose once you've collected enough then there's nothing left to collect and you might be willing to drop some dough just for a token.

I too am curious to see what a cracked FW would bring in. :shhh:
