I got a feeling that of the back of the recent soulboy movie etc there is sudden influx of interest in the scene maybe this new breed have not got the knowledge yet when it comes to record buying hence some of the crazy bidding seen recently on ebay

Why do I find this hard to believe? Anyone?

I'd say a more likely explanation is just an equation of supply, demand and the quality of the records in question. If you're not that bothered about owning/playing originals then even £50 to have a playable 45 of one of the greatest bits of music ever committed to vinyl might not seem so crazy...

But it is crazy when you can get two tracks cut for yourself for £20?

wasonly a few years back when people were paying £50 - £100 on ebay for the John and Wierdest look-a-like.

I got one of those (the first boot) off Ebay for £26 two sundays ago. To keep I mean.

All depends on the timing and who's actually buying at the time I suppose.

The lennis guess.. Just ask me on S.P.Q.R..

Seen them on ebay, not sure if boot or not???

I have one from years back, think its the boot??? not too sure though..

Is the boot a lookalike on the same colour of lable??? is the boot worth much???

I guess, if you can be bothered to find a decent MP3 and not bothered about label design etc. and then even the boots are of some historical interest themselves nowadays I suppose Pete

I find it hard to believe......yet that is exactly the reason quoted by my local record shop for a sudden surge of interest!....

"They're all in here asking for vinyl that's on the soundtrack of that new soul film" yes.gif

probably not in the same vein

but i always liked the

patience valentine--you cant tell the good guys from the bad - real soul

because it was pressed with the c/u title

presume because it wasnt known at time

that it was edie walker--still kept it to this day

Good record in its' day , but I always thought Edie Walker was a disappointing name compared to Patience Valentine .
