Record wants

Recommended Posts

Steve if you look in the sales section someone was offering a Bobby Reed a couple of days back for £400 and the Tommy Tate is a Japanese CD only track that came out on a white label boot that you can pick up for a tenner of the likes of Johnny Manship.

Steve, i know its not an issue but it is a legit uk (albeit quite a few years late) release on expansion of Bobby Reed " the time is right for love" around a tenner.

Is that the Soul Of Money CD Steve? It's fantastic. He gave me a copy at Cleethorpes. Especially love the Caressa Watson.Not as good as Martha Starr, but the only place I'll hear it outside the 100 Club!

The Cressa Watson got a release on a UK album believe it or not.

'Twenty Great Unknown Soul Classics of The '60s & '70s - Cascade - Drop 1013

It's a subsiduary company of Ace Records

Tommy Tate also came out in the last year on Grapevine.

Manships got copies for £10.

Somebody had a "real" Tommy Tate on KoKo a few years ago at an Albrighton all nighter. I looked at it and it sure looked authentic. He wanted about £400/£500 for it if I remember correctly. There was some scepticism as to whether it was real however. May be someone else knows about this.

Jordi, The Tommy Tate track sure looked real to me too, and to lots of others who were offering £1000+ for the tune. It was borought to Albrighton by a guy from the south coast who had the record from a guy in the US. I had the honour of spinning it that night, it was a slightly different take, a bit less sparse and more guitar involved.

Talking of Martha Starr and Cressa Watson, there is another version by Ward Burton on Panther. Pretty good and a better dancer. Kenny Burrell is the only DJ I know that's currently playing it.

Bugger i remember now didn't Henry Atkinson have one for sale a couple of years back as well??? Don't know if it's the same copy or not but the 4-500 price tag rings a bell seem to remember it being on a KoKo issue

Adey Potts also sold a real issue of Tommy Tate "If You've Got To Love Somebody" on Ko Ko to a very well known soul collector. It is a slightly different mix as noted above. Think it went for four figures...

On the subject of Tommy Tate, I'd just like to say that his "I Can't Do Enough For You Baby" on the Japanese Malaco LP "Hold On" is, to me, probably the best soul record ever made.

* remember that this Kokorecord also was on a webpagesaleslist a few years ago. it was on one of the earlier northern webpages. Ians Southcoast something something can´t remember it. can´t rememeber what he sold it for but a high price even considered it was a few years ago. think it stood that there was only 1 copy existing but thats probably wrong then even if it seems to be very rare.

Steve, see you in two weeks time !! can´t wait. Hopefully see some of you at Capitol Soul Club the Friday before as well :0)

>Price $8500. :-o

>There's also a sound clip from the actual record.

This is one of the very elusive/exclusive solid gold pressings. Thelma had them made for people who were tired of paying anything from £60-150 for it. They considered it a far more valuable record. So they went out and produced their own 'priceless' copies. They all went to a dealer in the North, apparently. Tho there are reports that he's having trouble shifting them and a few have been lining his loft cavity.
