Albert Jones "Up To The Sun"

Recommended Posts

Anyone got any idea how much this goes for?

Albert Jones "Up To The Sun" / "Reflections" on Bumpshop

I know it came out on Tri City first with a different b-side, if anyone's got a copy I'd be interested to know what that other flip is.

Good to see this record getting some recognition at last. I first heard this in the mid 70s at ace Detroit collector, Dick Watt's house. I picked it up shortly after that for about for around 3/6d on Bumpshop. (the price of a good fish supper in those days) That's all really, I just wanted to boast about how cheap I got it for...

hi it went for a little over 400 pounds , i have one managed to prise it out of a friends hands for all the lifts i have given him over the last few years did not realise it was that expensive though, i knew it was obscure.

never seen a tri city thought bumpshop was a small enough label.

I think this is an intriguing example of a record we all bought relatively cheaply (think I paid about £6 for mine), that hasn't been played out or talked about for nearly twenty years, yet when one turns up on ebay it's £400.

Begs the question how many more obscurities like this there are in people's collections. My guess: thousands.

A thread on "oldies" that only got one or two plays by one deejay years ago might be good...
