if people are prepared to pay that sort of money for a boot, then more fool them. the seller obviously knows that if he starts the bidding at 125 quid. mad world...

i know i might get slagged by some on here for saying this,but im not really a great lover of this record :(

must admit when it was thumping out of big speakers at venues in the 70s it was good, but i think like a lot of tunes they sound not so good when ur sitting at home playing em

I must have played this a thousand times and I could play it another thousand times without getting bored of it, it's absolute perfection and anyone who disagrees with me must surely be the victim of a cruel medical experiment :lol:

Its a proper "Northern soul " record Pete ......ticks all the right boxes ,if you like that sort of sound eh :wub:

Admittedly i used to like this kinda sound way back ,but being introduced to different stuff ,has taken me away from the big room sound and it' lost it's appeal .

It does'nt detract from the fact it is a proper "northern soul" record .

Instantly recognised by the big drum roll and the mad rush for the dance floor eh Pete :lol:

is there a definitive way to distinguish the reish from the original?

One way to tell, if you've got the record in your hand, is to look at the B side, the title fades slighty on the last couple of words. Also there are a few 'pits' in the run off. Plus an original vinyl demo is very, very rare, most are styrene.

from looking around a bit, it seems like the 6's in the deadwax and the print definition are different as well. any idea on whether the sound quality is different?

Boot is as good a quality as the original - have had both.

Crikey! He's sold it an all :thumbsup:

Golly if that don't beat all! Could have got a Stardust copy for a tenner and stuck an ABC label on it. A bot is aboot is a boot..

Not a bad record, but outside my top 50...

I am shocked. It's the best Northern record ever made. In my opinion.

Agreed Pete, not quite the best (Maurice Williams is - FACT !!) but deffo in my Top 10 tunes - great memories of Mecca,Ritz & Wigan for this.
