Mr. Lucky - He's Arrived

Recommended Posts

Just to let anyone interested know that I have got this record in my hands now and the crack is absolutely minimal. yes it does have a small crack but it cannot be heard at all. It has some general wear and tear and is still a nice VG++. John Manship only knows to 2 other copies. I know to one other. Any of you who get my regular lists will know that I never put stuff up for offers unless I have absolutely no idea of the price but I don't really see a way round selling this one as I've got 3 people after it already and how do you say yes to one and no to the others? Anyway, that's the lowdown on it...John reckons if mint it would have been 4 grand!!!

It's over 1700 quid already mate. If it were my top want I'd buy it even if it stank of cheese every time I played it. When I collected properly I kept turning down records because they weren't quite mint and now I kick myself as to what I turned down, so nowadays if I see something I want I buy it, whatever the condition. Thats not a sales pitch to you by the way, just saying that I lived to regret not buying certain items and they have never been offered again. Even worse is when I've sold things, thinking I'd get them again easy, and still not seen another one!

I'd love it, even with a crack! Too much for me tho'! :yes: Have seen a crack successfully 'fixed' by just touching the edge with a soldering iron, or similar hot object. Welds the start of the crack together which prevents it flexing and getting worse. :thumbsup:

PS is it me, or does it start off just like Thelma Lindsey's "Why weren't you there"

You can't cure a crack by sealing the outer edge of the crack with a hot soldering iron. There's nothing to say the crack will not spread the other way with an unduly knock or pressure. I had Len Jewell with a small crack and it got worse over the years.

Like Pete says though damn rare record. I thought it would have gone for £1500 but as it's past that who knows now :thumbsup:

i've done it by supergluing the reverse side along the crack. only problem is you have to make sure the grooves are in line or else you end up with a permanent tick, and that's harder than it sounds, and also you can never play the b side.

i think this should be fine pete - heard the soundclip, it's not like there's any distortion at the point of the crack. whistling.gif
