Should have a stone minter of this one up for grabs on here within next week or so - can you lovely people give me a good idea of how much I should slap on it?

600 700

Cheers Paul - I've already been PM'd a £750 offer so I guess we are all 'around' the same price..ish?

I am genuinely surprised how much this goes for nowadays ! , a long lost mate of mine picked up a copy of it , in about 88 - 89 for £40 , he no longer attends nights or collects anymore , we parted our ways over £350 I lent him that he never gave back !! I know where he lives and am sorely tempted to make contact as a mutual mate states he still has all his 45's tucked away in his loft !!!

got to say 750 is overpriced imo but hits what someone wants to pay for it innit

so rip his arm off

I sold my last copy at £400 so

Id say £4-500 is more realistic..in this crazy crazy world we live in

John did you get your`s via Rod D,i`m sure i got mine from him at that time

for around the same price £30/40,also had a Melvin Moore around the same time for around £60 :yes: ,i`d of thought Mark would have been buying this sort of stuff at that time also?.

Last coupla eBay prices seem to have gone NUTS - I don't wanna put stuff like this on the evil one - too risky - but ya CANNOT argue that this piece is on the up and up - last 2 Popsike prices are/were $1301 and $1202 and I cannot ignore that sorta level of interest. Believe me - this copy is 99% M-...has had less than 5 / 6 plays in it's short lifetime - people who know this stuff better than me say there are less than 50 copies in circulation?

Go figure...........

mine cost £25 many, many years ago...........first time I heard this record it was played by Steve Davis on some radio show, I think he stepped in for Steve Hobbs.

Great record thumbsup.gif good luck with the sale

Why don't you stick it on ebay with a $1200 opening bid? It can sit there for 10 days, either sell or not.

If it doesn't, you're out for a quid or two, depending on how many bells and whistles you put on the listing, and if it does you've got $1200 or more...

BUT ebay will take 9%, so your $1200 becomes $1092 once you've paid ebay their cut, which is approximately £690 at current exchange rate...

so you'd probably be better off taking the £750.

Unless you start it at $1400 of course...

Bang on boys !! , my mate paid £ 100 cash - 88 - 89 at Blackburn Allnighter for both !! , Can' t remember sellers name but he's a Preston lad , and I remember him as a regular from Halfway House , and Parkers !!! ,

In his box that night was Daybreak , Garfield Fleming , Ronnie Stokes 12 " , Four Below Zero & Four Tracks ( Charade ) , unknown ish !! , We The People , Veda , Larry Saunders

I had given up collecting sevens and was thinking 12 " & albums were the future !!

My mate cleared his box at at a bargain price later of £ 500 cash for 40 odd singles and a couple of 12 " , namely original Jay Player and King Tutt ,as he lost his job ,

This was always a 45 that was around and I thought I could buy at anytime I wanted... not now though.

I also got a copy of The Constellations "I Don't Know About You" from Butch for £20...

Then sold it for £20 to a mate - it was £250 at Prestatyn 5 years later... - should have bought it then cos it lovely but now a small fortune to retrieve!
