Hi everyone

I just joined your site and would like to tell you a little bit about me first.

My name is Nik, and I'm 40 years old, and been a Northern Soul fan for 28 years, ever since I went to Alexandra Youth Club, Edgerly, Stockport, at the age of 12.

The very first Northern Soul Record I ever heard was: -

Peggy March - "If You Loved Me"

Since then I've been hooked!

In my youth I was a member of Wigan Casino, Cleethorps, Rotherham, Keel, and one or two other soul night places.

Ok, that's enough about me; first of all I'd like to ask if anyone could value 2 records for me in today's market?

The records are: -

Johnny Appalachian - "Up In Smoke" - Goldie 1104 DJ copy. Mint Condition.

and

Gino Washington - "Like My Baby" (Vocal) - Atac DJ copy. Mint Minus Condition.

Both can be heard here: - www.soulclub.org

Next, I've been chasing some records and would like to ask if anyone has copies of the following and would like to sell them, please contact me: -

nik770@hotmail.com

Eddie Daye and the 4 Bars, "Guess Who Loves You" - Shrine 112

Jon and the Weirdest, - "Can't Get Over These Memories" - Tie 101

King Tutt, - "You've Got Me Hung Up" - Fun City 461

Crow, - "You're Autumn Of Tomorrow" - Inner Ear 429

ZZ and Company, - "Gettin' Ready For The Getdown" - Columbus 51679

I pay top prices for records in Mint, or Mint Minus Condition.

And finally I have some records for sale, so make me an offer for one, or all of them?

Thanks for your help, but Manship doesn't list a DJ copy. Also manship's guide isn't always correct, as I've seen records he list's at £15, go for £250?

I think a record is worth whatever someone wants to pay for it.

Thanks for your comments everyone!

:o)

I was just thinking, It's a shame we still don't have youth clubs like Alexandra!

It would keep the kids off the street a few nights a week, and introduce them to "our" kinda music, like it did with us lot. That's why there are very few youngsters in today's scene.
