Clearly an extremely rare 45....but not top of the tree in soul content imho. Does anyone have any info on where it has had plays/if it was covered up ect? Thanks!

Must admit Joel.......no one more surprised than me when i gave it a listen in refo after it was in sales/auction

Even more surprised when tia-pan revealed the final price......especially after seeing the popsike copyohmy.gif

Never ever heard /seen it before, so i assume it's a collector piece above all else ,unless it's got a fantastic flip sideg.gif

I was only aware of it from JM's guide as one of those expensive 45s you've never heard of and think 'wonder if thats any cop'.....

Well a collectors piece as well maybe, but surely one of the very very few new discoveries (or shall I say very little known 45s) to be found and played these days. So more a hot and ready to play 45 for the scene rather than a sheer collectors item.

At a guess its been bought for that very reason...and because of that the final price doesn`t seem too stupid given two (in fact three) desperate DJ`s wanting to have sth unique and "fresh" and bid-fighting over it.

You'd have to go to a nighter to hear it, Lifeline where it was first played by Nick Stevenson nearly 6 years ago who had the first "known" copy over here. Andy Killick the only other I know of to play it. Guess someone else gonna be palying it very soon. I took the first copy to another Lifeline nighter about three years ago to see if anyone interested in it, Sam certainly was, he badly wanted it but couldn't afford it at the time...or wasn't prepared to meet the asking price. Pretty sure I know where the popsike copy is.

This record first came to light best part of 20 years ago it came in a pile of stuff off simon soussan to browny,nick got the record along with some other bits.Not long after it was played under the guises of chuck jackson if memory serves me right,infact somehow a recording from that copy made it's way onto a bootleg c/d in europe of poor quality and the artist on the c/d was "chuck jackson" ! i found a spare around 3-4 years ago and traded it off.It certainly has the feel good factor when played out loud and with plays i dare say could be a popular tune.A tuff 45 even with ebay publicity - had it not been for the bay it would have been near on impossible to find......

nick has confirmed all of what andy d has stated i.e. he did buy it off tim brown in 1990 as "an exclusive" along with yvonne vaughn-dot, james knight-concho, jerry lawrence-arc, mel gaines & the regents-mad, black & blue-mercury and 2 more that turned out to be pretty rare too ... he used to play em all at martin bradleys "albrighton" soul night during the warm up spot and the first couple of life-line niters too.... he also must have set some kind of "world record" as the only dj never to have anyone dance to any of his records...!!! still it was a nice bunch of tunes imho...
